Get it done (or at least started!)- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Hey Lovely Souls!

If you are anything like me, you have some (or a lot!) of stuff that sort of lingers in the space of it needs to be done or I really want to do it and I don’t have the time, space, energy, money etc…

We forget that we have to make it ourselves! I have a list of things that are undone, that linger and tug at me, yet I have not made the time to just get them done or at least started.

That’s my challenge to you this weekend. Start or complete something that has been bugging you, something you have put off. Ok technically the intention for these was to complete something each weekend. But if it’s just not feasible for this prompt then that’s ok the intention is to start to shift the energy around that project, task etc..

It’s likely as soon as you see this post something will come to mind. If it doesn’t however, I have some ideas to spark your list.

Take that donation stuff and drop it off, get the haircut (that’s mine this weekend!), Make that call, try that recipe, get the lab work done or scheduled,  write that post, work on that class, choose the date, print the photos, start the memory keeping project (perfectly imperfect!)

Are you in? What’s your get it done or start it this weekend?

Here is to living your days with intention,

10 in 10 – Holistic Living

Hey Lovely Souls!

We can explore and accomplish (or start) more in 10 minutes than we usually realize.

So often we think that we need to have big blocks of time to get healthier, read more, explore our creativity, declutter. etc…

While big blocks of time are awesome,  they are not always easy to come by (or shall I say to carve out the time for) However, most any of us can carve out 10 minutes (and likely many times throughout the day).

Here are some things you can do in 10 minutes to support yourself in living holistically.

  1. Meditate for 10 minutes (or 5 in am, 5 in afternoon/evening)
  2. Spread paint in  your journal or on a canvas  (or glue images, add some stitches etc.)
  3. Journal, braindump, make lists.
  4. Be still, no looking at the phone. Just allow yourself to be for just 10 minutes.
  5. Move your body, walk around your house, neighborhood, do yoga, dance. Move your body! (if you are currently getting no movement and you can squeeze in 10 several times a week, isn’t that better than nothing?!)
  6. Plan meals for your week, make a menu
  7. Set up your supplements for the week.
  8. Read something inspiring  (book, blog, magazine)
  9. Do a blitz (this can be done in as little as 5) Maybe it’s doing a quick pick up in your living room, desktop (digital or physical!) unloading the dishwasher, wipe down of the bathroom or kitchen, shifting things around your space, putting stuff away. Set a timer and go for it. Don’t overthink it, just start on the space that’s bugging you the most or that you would be able to see the most progress in for that amount of time.
  10. Call and make the appt, check your balance etc. set up reminders on your phone or in/on your planner.

Life IS a special occasion- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Weekend empowerment challenge

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Welcome to the weekend Empowerment Challenge! This weekends challenge is to:

Use something that you have been saving for a special occasion. Life IS that special occasion. Many of us tend to hang onto so many things that we are saving for that “special” occasion.

Your life is a special occasion. The things you have made it through, created, learned this year are things to celebrate!

Maybe for you it’s those fancy dishes, outfit or accessory that is just for “dressing up”, the journal you want to have the perfect words or images to put in.

My challenge to  you is to use something even a little tiny something this weekend. If that thing you have is something you really can’t use right now, my challenge to you is to plan something where you can use it (plan it this weekend!)

Remember , this is for you, so it does not matter if you are “overdressed” to go to the diner or to run your usual weekend errands, it doesn’t matter if the meal on those dishes is for 1. Choose something and just go for it!

Mini Declutter- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Last week I introduced a new category that I have added (one I am excited about and need for myself!)
Weekend Empowerment challenge. These will be published every Thrursday or Friday and will be a prompt that you can complete in a weekend!
This weekends challenge is:
A mini declutter session!
This does not mean tackle that huge project that you have been meaning to do. No, the aim here is to start small. Choose one small area to start and finish this weekend.
Some ideas: Choose one, then if you are done with it, choose another if you feel so called to do so.
A junk drawer
The top of your dresser
Your desk
One tiny corner of that bigger project (so one  bag, one pile)
Your magazine pile (or one stack of them or certain titles, dates)
Your makeup bag
Your purse or just your wallet
Snack drawer/cabinet
Gather all the trash and recycling and get it out of a space.
There is power in release and shifting of our spaces even in the tiniest of ways.

15 Ways to savor summer

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Over in this part of the world it’s Summer solstice today. I feel a bit in shock that we are actually talking about summer already! Each season it’s easy to have big plans and then not check many of them off. (hello Spring list) This summer I would like to do things differently! Here are 15 ways to savor summer.

  1. Open windows and blinds, let some sunshine in!
  2. Go to the farmers market, fairs visit the local goodness you have around you.
  3. Create a summer photo series: You can make it themed in so many ways. Mornings, light, by color, general snapshots of your day, nature.
  4. Clear some space: In your schedule, in your surroundings, choose a select number if items to pare down to for a set number of days (the entire summer, a week, a month etc) This could be art supplies, clothing, projects etc.
  5. Choose a book or three to read. Make it something you really want to read no shoulding on yourself!
  6. Get some sidewalk chalk and play (this works if you have kids or not!) Put tic tac toe, hopscotch (note to self, be mindful of your knees lol) write out sayings or words and photograph them (bonus for doing a where I stand foot shot with them!)
  7. Start a new journal (sometimes we just feel we want a fresh start so start a new one, you can always go back to the one you might be sort of using now, or not!)
  8. Blow bubbles, let it be a meditation to you, just watch them as they float around or if you are feeling energetic chase them down!
  9. Lighten up: Eat lighter food (experiment with salads) , get a haircut or play with the color, wear breezy layers, add some fun color or pattern to your current wardrobe, change around your linens a bit. This list could go on and on!
  10. Look up what fruits and veggies are in season and add those into your meals more, sit and savor the sun (safely of course)
  11. Choose a project to start and finish.
  12. Create a summer playlist
  13.  Create a holistic first aid kit (but make it for prevention and solutions so essential oils, ointments, sunscreen, aloe etc. )
  14. Plan something, maybe it’s a summer stay-cation, road trip, a trip you want to take. Spend some time planning (and if you can following through on that plan)
  15. Notice, if you were to take nothing else except for this one from this list that would be a beautiful way to savor your summer. Notice the sounds, the laughter, the creative chaos, the breezes, the flowers and fruits of the season. Simply notice the goodness and even the struggles that are surrounding you. Open yourself to what they have to teach you.

What’s on your summer bucket list?
