Health and Wellness INSIDE OUT

When it comes to our overall health, we can't forget about our Mental Health!



Health and Wellness 100% starts from the inside. The foods we feed our bodies, the daily choices we make, the way we speak to ourselves, how we treat ourselves, how we treat others.



I've been reading Personal Development books ever since I was a teenager! I've been working on ME, ever since I can remember. I have been to therapy to help me grow from my trauma. It’s set me free from my limiting beliefs and has helped me learn how to grow and understand that learning and growing never stops! I'm always picking up a new book, or audio book. I want to hear other peoples stories. I love being reminded that we are STRONG, and WE CAN DO ANYTHING we put our MIND to! No one is perfect, we are all just trying to live our best life. We make mistakes, then grow from those mistakes. Life will throw us a curve ball now and again. How will we react to them? Some harder than others too.



Now more than ever, I have my book selection at my fingertips! As soon as I finish one, I'm on to the next. Our minds need the training, just as much as our bodies do!

Every book I read, teaches me something new. My latest book was Mastering Your Mean Girl. And boy does my mean girl like to take a hold over me sometimes. This book reminded me to lead with love. It can get confusing at times, so I've been repeating to myself "lead with love""respond in love" . Do I always? Nope, I'm still learning haha. This is life though. Learning, growing and evolving.



Are you reading any books right now? Drop me a comment below. I'll add what you recommend to my list!

Here's my list of my current Personal Development Books!

Back to work!

Last week was my first week back to work after maternity leave :(



We planned and prepared for the week as much as we could! We wanted a smooth start to the week. 

Making dinners that last 2 nights in a row.
Or getting takeout when we felt the burn of the week taking a toll. 



 
Picking out all our clothes for the week. 
Preparing lunches the night before and making easy breakfasts. 

Our days are long. Baby M and I are out the door at 7am! 


 
The first 3 days was really hard for baby M. There were a lot of tears. From both him and I!

But he is getting the hang of it. This week was much better. A few tears but he's having a great day. 

We have a good schedule we are following and the key to it all is preparation. Preparing on the weekend and the night before. 

We all have our part and we are working together as a team. Little K has been helping out and it melts my heart. He's such a big boy and adjusted so well to the new schedule with no fuss. 

We are in week 2! And slowly getting the hang of this new routine.
