Things I do to Stay Grounded
Hemp Fusion Products (check em out!)
These products above are so helpful when it comes to calming the mind, no matter what time of day it is. I found them at Expo East last year and truly was blown away with some of the products that I tried. I tend to use their Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Sleep, the Stress one and Energy (there is a Digestive one, too!) The Sleep product is hemp extract + PharmaGABA (GABA is known for helping to ‘reduce stress and promoting relaxation’. I take it about 15 minutes before I am ready to go to sleep. It is not something I do every night but it is nice when I have a lot on my mind to get those waves moving to get a good nights rest. The Stress capsules contains their hemp extract + a form of Ashwagandha, which you may know has tendencies to help and it possess potent stress reducing and mood supporting properties. And as far as the Energy goes, sometimes when I take a form of “hemp extract” in the past, it has made me more on the tired side so I was a little sceptical to take it with my breakfast before a day of working. However, their product contains their organic herb energy complex featuring organic guayusa, organic ginseng, and organic ginger, all which support balanced energy. They have “on the go” packets and bottles. Use the code HFRF20 for 20% Off + Free Shipping (on U.S. orders ONLY!)
Hydration & Movement
You don’t have to go ALL out every single day. Just do some type of movement each day and that could be 20 minutes of stretching in your house to a 30 minute walk to a yoga class to a hard HIIT class. Whatever it is, find what gets your heart hut physically and emotionally and find a way of movement that YOU* ENJOY.
Bulletproof Coffee (aka my morning routine)
Managing a realistic amount of screen time
Taking time away from your phone daily
even unfollowing someone that doesn’t bring you feeling of peace/happiness/value
Keeping your space organized (yes, Marie Kondo is a goddess)
Daily and Weekly To Do Lists
I have a blank journal/book that I use just to keep me organized. I write the date of the week at the top and fill out a bullet point list of everything I need to do for the week from what pictures need to be taken by what date to pick up dry cleaning. I also do one for the NEXT day each night. This keeps me from feeling overwhelmed and it calms me to have it written down and in front of me at any point and time that I need to reference it.
Peppermint Tea or a “Sleep Tea” with chamomile post dinner or dessert is a GO to for me. I find it helps me wind down and really start
It is easy to get down on whats going wrong. But most of the time the number of things going RIGHT is way higher than wrong. Remembering those and brig awareness to them is so important!
9. Making the Little Things Count
Sunsets, a cup of coffee, a phone call with your friend, your favorite blanket, a candle, spending time with your pet, the feeling after a workout…and SO many more. More coming on this soon!
10. Baths (any time of day!)
Taking a few minutes by yourself to just warm up and destress can do wonders
