Work it out

There are many distinctions between working in a more corporate type position and working for myself primarily out of a home office.  For one, I get to make breakfast and lunch in the comfort of my kitchen fresh and don't have to lug 7 and a half Tupperware to the office to assemble a halfway decent meal.

I also love that I can set the entire tone for my space be it with music streaming, the temperature, and with mindful exercises.  I'm much more aware of my inner peace levels and throughout a day I often practice various exercises to promote wellness and calm, logical thoughts to get tasks accomplished.  I want to continue on this course more than anything because I feel inspired and grateful most when I'm self aware.

The last couple of days I've felt a little foggier and kind of bleh but it's also been raining here pretty much all day every day for about 2 weeks.  It's messing with me mostly in the sense of my sinuses being out of whack from all that the rain drudges up plus the barometric pressure being off.  Woof.  It's all good though; I'm working on channeling my annoyance and foggy mind into productivity by wellness and self check ins.  So so grateful to have tools and tricks to help in this process.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
