Breakfast. You need to go 🔙 to the BASICS. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ If you've just woken up, good happy morning. ✨If you want to stress less, stop giving yourself decision fatigue on things like what to eat for breakfast. Guilty 💁🏻. My husband and I just get stumped with this question all the time when we're trying to find a compromise. 🙄I am SIMPLE when it comes to breakfast. It's either a shake, a smoothie, or some scrambled eggs with salsa. Sometimes toast. Or my yummy pancakes -- recipe few posts back.🥞🥞🥞 ⠀⠀⠀ I just need to get full, and get on with my day. I always have a go-to breakfast, most of the time it's eggs 🍳 and I'll eat four of them if I have to. 😊😊😊 ⠀⠀⠀ Choose one thing to eliminate decision fatigue on -- whether it's what to eat, or what to wear. And you'll probably have a better day. 💛 you're welcome. 🙂 . . . . . #personalgrowth #beautifulhealth #vancity #personaldevelopment #vcbb #communityovercompetition #personalbrand #mentalwellness #selfcare #selfcarechecklist #selfcarechallenge #sel#selfcareawarenessmonth #selfcareawareness #collaborationovercompetition #inspiration #creativepreneur #wearethecreativeeconomy #womeninbusiness #contentcreator #womensempowerment #consciousliving #consciouslifestyle #lifestyledesign #eatbreakfast #eatclean #piit28

Day Eight! TREAT YOURSELF. NO GUILT. • A healthy lifestyle and self-care is all about balance. Don't fall into society's diet culture guidelines of what you should and shouldn't be doing to take care of yourself. Sometimes taking care of yourself eating your favourite unhealthy food or drink. Buy those new shoes you've been wanting. Eat the cake, have the chocolate bar. Buy the jewellery. Treats yourself to a day out. Treat yourself to a pamper day. A I'm-not-going-to-get-changed-out-of-my-pjs day. Binge watch that TV show you've been wanting to watch. • Sometimes the best thing you can do for your self-care is to just take a day off and treat yourself. There iss just one simple rule; you're not allowed to feel bad or guilty for doing so! . . . . #sel#selfcarelenge #teamhealthandhappiness #health #healthy #healthandfitness #selfcare #selflove #fit #fitness

Selfcare is not a bubble bath! ⠀⠀ Not limited to. Could be. Someone asked me what selfcare means. In short it's what you do to take care of your mental, physical, emotional wellbeing. It could be a bubble bath, but for someone else it could mean journaling, or making smarter food choices, or exercising or a walk in the park. ⠀⠀⠀ Selfcare for me is respecting my boundaries and time. It's spending time wisely. It's your sanity. Your time. In the same way having a well defined brand protects your business integrity + how you show up, your selfcare protects how YOU show up. ⠀⠀⠀ What does selfcare mean to you? 💁🏻 . . . . . #personalgrowth #beautifulhealth #vancity #personaldevelopment #vcbb #communityovercompetition #personalbrand #personalbranding #mentalwellness #selfcare #selfcarechecklist #selfcarechallenge #sel#selfcareawarenessh #selfcareawareness #collaborationovercompetition #inspiration #creativepreneur #wearethecreativeeconomy #womeninbusiness #contentcreator #womensempowerment #consciousliving #consciouslifestyle

One of the most amazing places ever. Walk along the beach of Findhorn so scenic. Feeling the gorgeous fresh air, watching the waves. It is such a magical place. Day 19 of Self Care Challenge. Feeling content, living in the moment and so lucky to be here. #selfcarechallenge #content #mindful #beachwalk #tyoga

Day 7! you're a week into your self-care challenge how are you feeling? . Today you just have to be a little more aware of what you're eating, the food you're putting in your body to fuel it and what is actually in it. Don’t just grab something because it’s easy and convenient, grabbing that sugar chocolate bar isn’t going to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to fuel you. • Could you spend 10 minutes in the morning preparing your dinner for the day instead of picking up that sandwich from the shop. Be conscious of whether you're actually eating because you're hungry or whether you're just bored or need to drink water. Start eating intuitively, don't just eat because its there, are you genuinely hungry? and stop when you're satisfied and save the rest for later, don't just stop when you're sat there so full its uncomfortable. • The food you eat decides how you're going to be feeling for the rest of the day, do you wanna feel sluggish and rely on coffee to keep you going or do you want to feel energized? . . . . #teamhealthandhappiness #sel#selfcarechallenge #health #healthy #selfcare #selflove #food #foodchoice #healthandfitness #healthandwellness #balance #balanceddiet #healthylifestyle #healthychoices

Biking today in the most amazing scenery of forest, streams and ending with a beautiful loch by the beach. Often you flourish more when socialising with others. Today I cycled 23 k outdoors in Glenmore and Rothiemurchus. Day 18 of Self Care Challenge. Feeling positive being with others in nature. #selfcarechallenge #nature #mountainbiking #positive #tyoga

Today marks the end of my #sixtydaysofselfcare and what a challenge it has been. I think so often as women (and especially mothers), we find ourselves neglecting that part of us that needs rest and replenishment, as we negotiate snack times and nap times, play dates and rainy days. This has forced me to actively do something for me each day, no matter how small. I didn’t always achieve it, occasionally I dropped the ball but overall, after two months of rest, bubble baths, long walks, reading, making time for friends, movie nights and massages, I’m feeling relaxed and refreshed ready for the winter.

New beginnings ✨ ⠀⠀⠀ I've successfully finished my basic cleanse! I'm thinking of continuing with it and maybe even replacing two meals with the smoothies vs 1. ⠀⠀⠀ I lost about 2lbs on the scale, without much intention. I'm also left really wanting leafy veggies these days (woohoo!) Thanks for being on the journey with me + listening to my updates in instastory! 💛 ⠀⠀⠀ On a different topic, are you a person who uses a planner? If so how did you choose one? I'm a rather freestyle planner so I use sticky notes and a lined notebook to get my thoughts and to do's down. I don't use an actual planner or a bullet journal. I do use google calendar for all my appointments! I also have (had) an expired vision board -- time for a new one! 💛 Tell me if these are a part of your lifestyle habits and how do you do your planning?? ✨I'd love to know! . . . . #personalgrowth #beautifulhealth #vancity #personaldevelopment #vcbb #communityovercompetition #personalbrand #mentalwellness #selfcare #selfcarechecklist #selfcarechallenge #lifestyleplanner #bulletjournal #visionboard #lifestyledesign #sel#selfcareawarenessh #selfcareawareness #collaborationovercompetition #inspiration #creativepreneur #wearethecreativeeconomy #womeninbusiness #contentcreator #womensempowerment #consciousliving #consciouslifestyle ⠀⠀⠀
