Dear First name / sweet friend

 

‚ÄúThe little things?  The little moments?  They aren't little.‚ÄĚ - John Kabat-Zinn

 

We are so conditioned in our society to feel that a shift needs to come in the form of a giant gesture or change‚Ķbut our own self care is a reminder that this is not always the case.  You've probably often heard me say that ‚Äúself care isn't always a spa vacation‚Ä̂Ķand the truth is - that it hardly is ūüė≠.  Don't get me wrong - it's LOVELY when you can make the time for your ULTIMATE form of self care, that is a treat‚Ķbut real self care is in the daily, it's in the little things that add up to you feeling whole. The grandiose self care gestures‚Ķ.those are the sprinkles on the cupcake moments.  

 

The little things…are not actually so little.

 

This week I urge you to think about and incorporate the LITTLE things that refresh your soul and leave you feeling lovely into your days.  The things that add up and create an internal smile and strength:  

 

A step outside during your work day to savor a few moments under the sun; a conscious breath when there is stress or overwhelm around you; a calming bath or shower; yin yoga; meditation; watching your favorite feel good movie; drinking a cup of tea (and actually taking the time to enjoy the process); diffusing uplifting happy essential oils during the day or calming relaxing oils at night; setting an intention with a crystal and then placing it in your space as a reminder when you notice it; a self massage. <<< just some ideas for you!

 

Let's focus on the little things that are attainable to incorporate and notice the shift!

5 SIMPLE LITTLE THINGS

We spoke last week about joyful little things - the things that make you smile.  Having a gratitude practice for the things in our life that we typically take for granted is life changing work.

THIS week, we are getting detailed and this journal prompt is quick, but I urge you to take time with it and really sit with this question to make it attainable and uplifting for your life.

 

What are 5 simple, easy, inexpensive little things….that I can incorporate for self care this week?

 

Simple, easy & inexpensive - I'm talking a 3 minute break from every work hour to enjoy the vitamin D, a sunset walk, drinking more water, getting more sleep, reading 10 pages a day, meditating, a relaxing bath (scroll down for my recipe!).  List out your 5 things then put them into action daily, notice your uplift!!!  

Enjoy :)

The moon is our closest celestial neighbor and powerfully influences every living thing on our planet. Within 28 days, the moon passes through 8 phases, each with its own unique characteristics. The full moon is the middle of this cycle, and the time that we celebrate where we are at and release things that are no longer serving us.

 

Tonight's practice will encourage you to tap into the energy behind this specific full moon in a way that serves your life.

‚ÄčGrab a crystal that is resonating with you this month and bring it to your mat if you would like! You can use it during your practice and set new intentions with it as a part of your full moon ritual.

CRYSTAL FEATURE + SALE!!!

 

Lemurian Seed Quartz Crystals are some of the first that I began learning about and working with!  These were some of the first that my mentor from Brazil discovered and began to share about.  

 

These rare and beautiful master crystals are said to awaken the spirit, strengthening one's wisdom.  The crystal interacts with every chakra, bringing balance to the body.  Originally found by an ancient civilization called Lemuria, these stones are said to reconnect past knowledge to the present, and hold ancient wisdom.  Because of this, Lemurian Quartz is a powerful stone to increase your bond to the spiritual world.

 

For the month of May, please enjoy 20% off all Lemurian Quartz + Diamantina Clear Quartz Crystals with code QUARTZMAGIC

 

 

 

Self care is in the little details.  I find that my life is more fulfilled when I concentrate on the things in my daily action that feel good - like taking a few minutes to enjoy a cup of tea;  dressing in clothing that feels amazing, hangs with me all day & makes me feel beautiful; sitting in a yin pose when I need to ground; following the moon phases; becoming conscious of my water intake, etc.

 

The athleisure brand that I have partnered with lifts my heart.  

We focus on size inclusivity, empowering women, and eco-friendly clothing that moves with us throughout our busy days.  

I love to share it with you because of how it uplifts your life as well!

 

REEF SPORTS BRA

The Reef Sports Bra is so pretty and COMFY! The tie dye colors, the twisted straps, the flattering front scoop, and the support!! The fabric is also very functional with 25% spandex, this bra has excellent stretch and recovery. The nylon Interlock has been brushed which provides soft handful and moisture wicking performance.  

This sports bra feels like a hug all day long.

Offering up benefits of de-stressing, adding moisture to the skin, soothing pain and so much more, the ancient practice of bathing in salt water is one of the most basic and transformative self care go-to's today….
