November has been pretty amazing so far. There is so much to look forward to between now and the end of the month. If you follow my social media accounts, I have been posting my daily recaps of the #selfcarenovember challenge. This challenge has really been going well for me. It is helping me slow down and be more mindful.

Day 1: No Complaining for a day

I thought no complaining for a day would be hard, but what it lead to was me not talking much that day.  It was different but not so bad. I listened to music and podcasts most of the day and I felt much more energetic.

Day 2: Do something kind for someone else 

It was a long work week for me. Honestly, I don’t know why. It just seemed like the week dragged out. Friday on my way to working, I thought I’d get Krispy Kreme donuts for the office. Sweet treats always make me feel better and nothing is better than a warm donut about an hour after lunch. And I know if I had a long week, so did my coworkers.

Day 3:  Buy yourself a gift (something you really like)

As I was in Big Lots I came across some nice smelling candles. I love candles, But I only buy bath and body works candles. I thought to myself, I can buy other brands of candles. If you like the scent get it. So I bought it. Big Lots is dangerous. I spend more money there, than I do in Target. That’s bad! Not really tho, cause Bigs Lots as great discount stuff for everything.

 

 

Day 4: Pamper Yourself 

Sunday was a great day for pampering myself. I woke up early and started cleaning up my place. I was even in the mood to rearrange some of my furniture for comfort. Once I was done cleaning, I took a hot bath, relax and listening to ” Don’t settle for safe” by Sarah Jakes Roberts.

Day 5: Write a letter to someone

I decide to write my letter to a decaesd loved one. It felt good to release some of those inner thoughts in a open letter.

Are you taking the challenge with me? How’s it going? Let’s dialogue!

Drink Tea |Self Care Tip

Happy Friday Passionista !!!

I have had a long and stressful week. So, one thing I like to do when I’ve had one of those weeks is brew a fresh pot of tea and have some quiet time.

Tea has been known to be a way to relief stress and anxiety, promoting a healthy environment.

Here are 2 different teas I love to brew and drink when I find myself under stress or my anxiety starts to run high.

To brew my tea I use the Bodum electric kettle and Bialetti Glass tea pot – both purchased from Walmart.

Hot Tea: Teavana Recover Regain Green Tea (which is now discontinued due to the recent closing of all Teavana store fronts 😔)

This is a detoxifying wellness tea with mint with the recommended dose of daily vitamin c, meant to support a healthy lifestyle.

Cold Tea: Tea of Life Pomegranate White Tea

This is a gluten free tea of life packed with antioxidants, meant to help with weight loss.

Not only are these teas calming but they carry tons of health benefits.

Tip: Take a moment to disconnect from the outside world, get comfortable and have a hot cup or cold glass of tea. Give yourself time to calm and think.
