Tools I'm using to boost my peace of mind, ease the worry and improve my skills!
13. Essential oils. Where do I start... Peace of mind and holidays. I love that we didn’t need a fist aid kit, just an essential oil kit. I used them for stomach aches, stings, jet lag, strong tummies, sleep, sniffles, cleaning … (what else would I use to clean up a house after a troop of baboons have raided and
defaced defecated it - it was NOT good)?! I took about 10 different oils with us and used them everyday.
One morning Benj all of a sudden got a very bad tummy ache - doubled over, crying in pain. A visit to a doctor was not on our itinerary! I tried a couple of oils - gently, after about an hour still no relief he'd been swimming the day before in a pool... maybe that had something to do with it? We don't know. I then 'bombed' him with a cocktail of oils, within 15 minutes he had fallen asleep and woke up back to his happy himself and a very relieved mum! I was so glad to have them.
My next oily class, Natures Medicine Cabinet, is on Tuesday 19th of January at 7pm at our home in Mosman Park (see below) register with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
14. Morning Magic. Time for myself before the busy day begins. I love the quiet and being able to journal, read, meditate and/or exercise, my days go so much better. I fill my cup. I will be making these a priority.
15. Breathing. Breathing from my diaphragm. Breathing deeply in this way immediately stimulates our para-sympathetic nervous system i.e. we signal the body to rest and digest (heal), as opposed to fight or flight (stress). It's energising and can take as little as 10 minutes. Magic.
I'm using this free app, 'pranayama' and I love Dr Libby's, 'Restorative Calm'. Both can take as little as 10 minutes.
16. Soul sisters. Working, supporting, listening and playing with like-minded women toward making life and parenting the best it can be for all of us.
Mind Motivator. If there's one thing to take from this newsletter, I recommend taking at least 5 -10 minutes a day to motivate and strengthen the mind in the direction of our dreams.
