It’s your #wedding and you are going to ease through this year like the #bride you were born to be. Say to yourself, “I have all the time I need. I will be organized, creative, and will enjoy every moment of planning our wedding." Now, visualize yourself doing it!
I am going to share with you three treasures to live by because when life changing events happen, sometimes you need a gentle reminder on how to take care of yourself. Those are very powerful words because no one will ever take care of YOU the way that YOU will. Instinctually, you know exactly what you need and you should not feel guilty about it.
Let's talk about eating clean, real, & #organic food. A smart rule that I have always remembered is stick to the perimeter of the grocery store because that is where the fruits, veggies, meats, and cottage cheeses are hanging out! Also, if you can't pronounce the ingredients, don't eat it. A life changing purchase for me was my Omega J8007S. This cold press juicer gives a higher juice yield without the heat so your fruits and veggies keep all the nutrients. Loving my body this way gives my skin a glow and and my eyes a sparkle that people notice when I am juicing! I dare say the fountain of youth comes from my juicer.
To help with organic food buying, this is a great resource.CLEAN 15 AND DIRTY DOZEN LIST.

Schedule yourself enough sleep. Yes, actually block out that time every night for some wonderful dreams. The National Sleep Foundation's annual Sleep in America® recent 2018 poll revealed 65% of people that get enough sleep do feel like a more effective person, yet 41% of people don't plan enough time for sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults sleep around 7-9 hours a night. Not to worry, we are about to create a bedtime ritual. Try a warm shower or bath before bed, dim the lights, light candles or turn on a diffuser with essential oils. I love using a few drops of #doTERRA lavender essential oil on my pillow, in my diffuser, and on my chest before bed. I even throw in a few drops of Eucalyptus in my bathtub along with Epsom salt.

If you wish you had more time, felt more relaxed, want to deepen your concentration level, and unleash some creativity, I want to share with you the benefits of yoga and meditation. Yoga is a practice that prepares the body for meditation which is the grand event. I find that I can now calm my mind in as little as 3-5 breaths. "The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.” ― Rumi

Anyone can try yoga at anytime in their life. It took me quite a few years of practicing to stop worrying about what I looked like and wondering if I was good at it. After years of practice, I now know that showing up on my mat is enough, and linking movement with breath truly is life changing. Every time I show up, I become a more connected, happier person.
Also when you are happy, you are also beautiful inside and out. "I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness." -- Drew Barrymore
