It’s already late July and I can’t believe how fast time is passing by…
In the midst of all the fun and chaos of life, I constantly remind myself to slow down and enjoy it all.
A few things I like to do to relax:
1. Take a walk. Even if it’s just for 5 minutes. The fresh air helps to clear to my mind.
2. Candles, I know - this is so basic, but certain candles, especially ones with natural oils always help me to relax. I really enjoy the Leoben Candle Company. Their candles are phthalate-free and made from vegan soy wax and they use essential oils. The lavender is my favorite.
3. Make a list! Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I make a list of all the things I need to accomplish that day. One day only - if I zoom out too far, I just feel overwhelmed again.
I’m looking forward to a week off for my 40th coming up. We’re heading to Carmel for a few days then up to Dunsmuir with the family. Can’t wait.
