So Matcha Love.


Spring has sprung, April is here, and the allergies are at an all-time high here in Dallas (Where is the Zyrtec?!)! Today, I bring to you some self-care tips that have helped me a lot through the past several weeks since I've applied them in my daily life. I recently did a guest blog post for "Women's Leadership LIVE," you can check that out here. WLL is a community of women that are business owners and entrepreneurs and I'm so grateful to have been asked to write a guest blog post.

In this post, I wrote out six steps that you can use as a guide to ensure that you are being mindful of your thoughts and intentions. This topic had me thinking about how important it is to have rituals or a self-care schedule to help keep my mind clear and my energy even clearer.
Having rituals and a schedule in place the past few weeks have truly been life changing. I decided to make small adjustments to my schedule and I am finally seeing some of the positive changes. Be sure to check them out below:

No social media, email, and endless scrolling right when I wake up. 
I use this time to really set my intentions for the day and use this time to say five things I am truly grateful for at that very moment. Every day this can be different things but it is a nice way to start your day with gratitude vs. anxiety and mindless social media updates.
Being mindful of water consumption. 
Water is extremely important in so many different areas of your life including health, happiness, and well-being. Water is great for draining your body full of toxins, weight-loss, healthier skin and better complexion. Who doesn’t want all of that and more!?
Simple stretching. 
Stretching is great for your muscles, relaxation, and just simply to get your body moving. I am loving my routine of stretching before bed and really winding down, especially from wearing all of the fabulous shoes that women tend to own.
Reading!
Lately, I have really been making it a point to read at least a chapter of one of the books that I am currently in the middle of. I am obsessing over “The Universe has your Back.” By Gabrielle Bernstein. This book is incredible and I am loving all of the points that she makes. I can’t wait to finish this one.
Taking my time with skincare in the morning and at night.
If you know me personally, you know that I am completely obsessed with skincare and I avoid the sun at all cost. I have at least 65 SPF on my skin at all times. This has been extremely important to me nearly my whole life and this is the one thing that I preach to everyone. By focusing on this easy and simple part of my day it has allowed me to really step my game up lately and see the subtle changes. 



Hopefully, these small changes that I made in my life will help you and allow you to think about the small changes you can make in your life. I have used the mindset that if I make small easy changes first then I can work my way towards larger goals to achieve. Either way, I will almost always be working my way towards one goal or another throughout my life. If you decided to make any small changes in your life be sure to comment below, I can’t wait to start reading and getting even more inspiration.
