I figured that today, I’d show you some of my new blessings, and tell you why I like them.
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown, Ph.D. –I’ve read several self-help books, and this is by far one of the best I have picked up. This book pretty much pinpoints every issue I have with stress and self-esteem, teaches to new paradigms to adapt, and gives actual ways to apply them. For me, this is huge. So often, books are filled with uplifting principles and stories, but don’t actual give a way to incorporate them into my daily life. Or, there will be a super complicated plan that I don’t have the time or the patience for. But this gives you small, quick exercises to try out, which is awesome! It covers topics from perfectionism and letting go of what others think, to relaxation and creativity. This book is worth its weight in gold. 🙂
Cliff Mojo Trail Mix Bars –I love protein bars. They’re quick and easy to eat on the go. Many times, though, the bar will have a weird consistency or taste chalky, or have way too much sugar (and still manage to taste bad!) But I love the Cliff Mojo bars. They taste pretty much like a granola bar, but have the protein requirements that I desire. Plus, they are low glycemic, and 70% organic! What’s not to love?
Anti-Anxiety Synergy Blend by Plant Therapy -I love essential oils. I have since high school, in fact, when I stumbled across a delightful metaphysical store in Richmond, Virginia. They are soothing, all natural, and make my house smell great. But, one of my biggest problems is finding them. Either I feel like I have to deal with a pushy MLM consultant, or I have a very limited selection at the grocery store. So, I decided to branch out, and order one from Amazon! Plant Therapy is a company that sells essential oils on Amazon, and has really high reviews. I was really excited when I stumbled across this anti-anxiety oil blend, as I’ve really been struggling with managing my stress levels. This blend has lavender, marjoram, ylang ylang, sandalwood, vanilla, and Roman chamomile. It’s a roll-on blend, so it’s diluted in coconut oil. I love this stuff! It smells so good, and I think it’s helping me to feel a little less stressed. At the very least, it makes my room smell soothing.
I hope your day goes amazing!
