Have you been making merry?

Does it feel weird that Christmas was in the middle of the week? I feel like it should be the weekend but nope, my hubby and boys went back to work today.

You know what else feels weird, my belly. Everything feels a bit…off. I might’ve been making merry with the rich and sugary foods that seem to been endless (my fridge is still full). Today I woke up feeling, and looking a bit like Santa after an all-nighter binging on sugar cookies.

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily?” is all about helping your belly! A few things that are a “must do everyday” Make sure you are taking your vitamins. I love the Life Long Vitality vitamins. I will write a longer blog all about them very soon.

I also take Terrazyme daily, this is again a whole blog post in itself. (coming soon)

And when I’ve over done like this week, its Digestzen to the rescue. There is a whole line of Digestzen products so I have a few things to choose from. Today I just needed a little Digestzen touch on my belly and I’m already feeling relief.

Sometimes with things a bit more upset then I will take some Digestzen internally. I don’t like the flavor (tastes like black licorice) so I take the Digestzen Softgels.

Not that I encourage over indulging…who am I kidding… I totally encourage it. I’m a huge food pusher. If you do happen to over indulge then these are the tools that you need to help put yourself right. #doyoudōTERRAdaily 

Diffuse to get in the Mood!

Remember when I said yesterday that I haven’t decorated, at all. This is very true and to tell you the truth I’m feeling a bit less than festive. So today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily?” is how I changed that really fast.

Diffuse, diffuse, diffuse!!! It really didn’t take much, I just added Holiday Joy in the diffuser in the living room and Holiday Peace and Citrus Bliss in the diffuser in the kitchen. Both smell AMAZING and have put me in a right festive mood.

You might ask Why Holiday Peace and Citrus Bliss. I never would have thought of it myself but last month doTERRA did a BOGO and paired the two together and I thought I’d try it… MAGIC!!!

Just a heads up that tomorrow is Christmas and I will be (diffusing) taking the day off from writing to spend it being present with my family. I wish you and your’s health and happiness. Merry Christmas!

The Best Present Is To Be Present

Are you feeling it? The deep down, tired in your bones, I love the holiday’s but can I get some peace and quiet yet? Whatever holiday’s you are celebrating at this time of year, I want to wish you and yours good health and happiness. I also want to give you some tools to make it through the next couple of weeks with your sanity intact.

Ok I couldn’t resist…this meme made me giggle!

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily?” is about self-care.

Just for fun, on top of the holidays, my sweet daughter decided to throw in a wedding on January 2nd.  It will be a lovely one, but I knew a few things had to go for me to keep be able to get other things done.

Things I let go of this year:

  • I didn’t decorate… at all
  • No family newsletter/Christmas card
  • I didn’t make cookies for all of my neighbors (although I still might, if the mood hits me)
  • I didn’t do an advent
  • I didn’t do a secret Santa

What I am doing instead:

  • Taking the time I need to prepare for my daughter’s wedding
  • Making her bridal veil, because I want to not because I have to
  • Playing games with my family (Sorry and Skipbo are family favs)
  • Teaching my grown-up kids how to make some of my recipes so that they know how to make them for themselves when they can’t be home
  • And using my oils…all of them LOL! My happy place go to is Citrus Bliss

This time of year can be overwhelming for so may reasons but most of all…because we let it. Take “you” time. It is not selfish; the world won’t collapse because you decided to take a bath. (make sure to add bath salts with EO) And be sure to drink plenty of water, exercise a little and stretch.

You might not be able to accomplish everything that you want to do, make sure that you prioritize so you get the important things accomplished. Most of all, be present…that is the best present you can give!
