This pack has some of my favourite oils. 

Sleep support on lock

⛅Peace roller touch – I use this on my chest, back of my neck and feet. I apply then get a little bit on my hands, cup my hands over my nose take 3 deep breaths in. So supportive for me when I have anxious feelings during the day or before bed. I’ve also used if I wake up in a ‘panic’ and need to calm myself down. Getting back into the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) after fight or flight. I’ve also used it with the kids before bed and if they wake/can’t get to sleep because of nightmares etc. 

⛅Lavender Peace (the restful blend) aka Serenity in the states – Diffuse in the bedroom half an hour before bedtime. I also use it with a carrier oil on my chest, spine, neck and feet to support sleep. A drop on the mattress protector, pillow or the floor beside the bed is another option. 

⛅Balance Grounding Blend – smells AAMMAZING. Perfect on feet morning and night to ground you in, calming and reassuring. 

⛅Cedarwood – as well as Vetiver, Balance and lavender peace its part of the get the f to sleep diffuser blend. I use cedarwood in my facial oil for its skin benefits. 

⛅Vetiver – so grounding. It has a forest vibe. I use this on my face at night then rub any excess on my neck, lower spine, and then feet. I also cup my hands over my nose and take 3 deep breathes it is so calming and grounding. A very luxe skin oil makes a perfect night serum. Hubby even partakes in the vetiver night routine.

⛅Fractionated Coconut oil – for use as a carrier oil when applying the oils topically.

⛅Wholesale membership – access to any doterra product at wholesale price for a 12 mth period.

5 take aways from Thrive – Arianna Huffington

Thrive book It was summer when I read it. The kids were doing waterplay outside, hence the water in the cover 💦 
I loved Thrive by Arianna Huffington it was such a good reminder to slow down &  we don’t  have to be doing everything. 

I was actually reading it around the time I did the ‘Do less challenge’ with Kate Northrup, so it was perfect.

Thrive also touched on how important sleep is – which is the main topic in her latest book The Sleep Revolution, which I’m currently reading.

 

 5 take aways from Thrive that resonated with me. 

Measuring success is so much more than how much money you make or how much power you have. It needs to consist of four pillars - Wellbeing, wisdom, wonder and giving

Amen! I cant say much more on that. It’s a good reminder to keep things in check. 

✨How do you rate / feel your live is going on these four pillars?

✨ What can you do to improve each of these four pillars?

✨ What will add to your wellbeing / wisdom / wonder / giving rather than take away from it?
2. Start getting 30 minutes more sleep - go to bed earlier or take a nap.
Sleep is Important to every area of your life. It makes dealing with all that comes your way so much easier. You don’t realise the value of sleep until you aren’t getting it – in my case once I had babies. I now hold sleep on the pedestal it deserves. It affects your health, wellbeing, mental health, ability to concentrate, ability to learn & absorb new information, affects your stress hormones – just to name a few things. Inadequate sleep over the long term will also put you at risk of major burnout. 

Get more sleep you won’t regret it 😴

Love grows brains we need to show children a picture of love as we raise them.
Show children a picture of love 💗 I just loved this. With two young children it was a good reminder that they learn most from observing us, not just by what we are telling them. 

Constantly photographing our lives is interrupting and it can make it hard to settle into conversations
Don’t interupt the good times. We all have far to many photos anyway- what are we going to do with them all. Are our children really going to want them all or are just going to be burdening them with a shit tonne of digital clutter. Be mindful take a few if you must then put the camera/Phone (most likely) down. 

 Be present enjoy the moment. Im as guilty of this as anyone else – “wait dont eat yet I have to instagram that” 🙈
Constantly photographing our lives is interrupting and it can make it hard to settle into conversations
So hard to slow down with all the information, the things you could be doing, feel you should be doing. The way busy busy busy is held up as some sort of great achievement & badge of honour that your life is full. It may be full but is it full of meaningful activities & moments. (That just reminded me of the teacher who filled the jar for his class I’ll link the video here.)

💟 Just do it – just slow down. 

💟 Take a breath. 

💟 Try out some meditation. 

💟 Cross off all the crap off your to do list which you loathe. 

💟 Deligate, eliminate & create space. 

💟 Create space to connect with your family, friends, time to be present with your children.
Evaluate what it is that is taking up ‘all’ your time. Is it meaningful, is it adding value to your life? 

 

Be sure to check out Thrive if you havent already.

Id love to know one thing you took away from it if you have read it / or once youve read it?
