Wellness Isn’t Selfish

Wellness

3 Years Ago…

I thought I was fairly healthy. I tried to make good meals for our family, exercise when I had a “free” week, and felt like I was doing better than most in taking care of my health.

In reality I was staying up way too late, cleaning with and applying toxins to my body, lacking energy or motivation, sick often, not investing in relationships, feeling run down, and putting myself in last place on the care chart.

I thought getting by was good enough and what I was supposed to do as a mom.

Today…

I know better so I’m doing better. Our home is free from toxic products, I eat cleaner, our family uses essential oils that support every system of our body, I sleep better, and exercise is something we DO,  not just intend to do.

Can you SEE the difference?

I can too. I see a girl who has more energy, more life, more confidence, feels better than ever, and knows that wellness isn’t selfish. 

It hasn’t happened overnight and we certainly can still make changes and improvements, but I’m so thankful for where we are and where we are headed in this journey.

Can I encourage you to quit feeding yourself the lies that you might be in your head that were in mine three years ago? 

~ Taking time to exercise isn’t selfish – it’s good for your entire family. It motivates them and it shows them that you care about being there for them in the future. 

~ Researching, reading, and spending time figuring out what works best for your family’s health isn’t wasted time. 

~ Spending money on your family’s health isn’t throwing away money. {This held me back from ordering my Premium Starter Kit for over a year! How I wish I would have known then what I know now!}

~ Finding time to be quiet, read your Bible, pray, and reflect is never going to be something you regret. 

~ Putting yourself on the very bottom of things to care for doesn’t make you a good mom/wife. {Still working on this one.}

————–

If these or other lies are holding you back, I really encourage you to start somewhere towards a healthier you in three years.

Find accountability. Talk out your goals and make them realistic. Make LIFESTYLE changes over joining the next quick fix.

I’m cheering you on and I’d love to be a part of it! 

*** If essential oils are something you’d like to explore as part of your wellness goals, I’d love to lock arms with you!  I have an incredible community of support, and I LOVE the relationships I continue to build as a result of this journey.

I have these fun oil bags that I’m gifting to new sign-ups this month (along with my already awesome resources) to celebrate better wellness! LOVE THEM!  I have a limited number of these available, so first come first serve!!! Find out more about how to get started with Young Living essential oils here.
