Painting pumpkins calms me.
πŸŽƒπŸ–Œ

Fall is my season and I love everything about it. Being connected and mindful during this time is really important.

Painting allows me to do this and even after I'm finished just thinking about it illicits good vibes.

Destress with Beads

Beads aren't just for kids. These super colorful connecting Beads are a fun and easy way to destress, clear and calm the mind.

Repetitive motions with your hands like playing with Beads soothes the mind and body. It interferes with the part of your brain that processes distressing situations.

Busy hands = calmer 🧠

In Greece people play with worry Beads when they have something on their mind or are feeling restless.

So keep a few close by as you work and take time through the day and play, or sit mindfully and click and connect as you catch up with your family or friends. Beads are a creative way to destress and have fun.

TFIF.
It has been a week.

So very much looking forward to some creative wellness to rebalance and refill the low cup and some serious nature rides.

If your feeling it too, make your wellness a priority and do things that make you feel good.

Oh, and don't forget to hydrate and get some solid sleep.

Paint what calls to you, and what connects you to place and mind.

Embracing each cycle and what it offers is a beautiful selfcare ritual.

Guys, I LOVE stickers.

At 38, I can still recall vividly how exciting it was as a kid to go to the toy store and browse the endless rolls of fuzzy, sparkly, scented stickers. Then after debating, finally select a few new exciting additions to the priceless sticker book and go home and admire them.

I still have my sticker book, with a giant shiny unicorn sticker plastered across its cover. I enjoy browsing its worn pages and inhaling the the scented faded stickers that somehow still give off the familiar smell after a gentle scratch. Go 80's!

Today you can walk into Dollarama and basically buy enough stickers in one shop that represent my hard earned, collected, and traded collection.
Boo to that.

My stickers are pieces of my story, friends I had, places I traveled, moments I've not forgotten.

Where as today kids are so into the digital we need to ensure they create and connect with enjoyable and shared pieces of joy, like stickers. So they can look back when they grow up and recall these timeless moments too.

Today we take a moment and acknowledge the immense importance of wellness and mental health. #bellletstalkday

Given the stress of trying to manage ourselves and others during a Pandemic, we have been tested beyond what we thought capable of and still are- daily.

Being intentional with our self-care is a priority that must be respected for what it is. It is also unique to each person as needs vary. Looking after yourself is critical in order to care for others and making time.

You matter. Your mental health matters. Give yourself the time and support you need to create your healthy balance.

I love my new Energy Deck beautifully created by @namastemyfriends. @christinahearns

Such beautiful I am statements and meaningful messages.

What is also special is the fact that all day yesterday I was thinking about buying flowers. In the end I didn't get around to it.

But was thrilled when my husband walked through the door and surprised me! He is also intuitive too, I guess!

I love how pretty the cards are paired with yellow Gerbers and the joy in pulling a new one daily.

Winter vibes, swirls and doodles.

I made this pretty watercolour playground this morning to start my day off creatively right.

Breathe is the word that I am choosing to focus on. And taking a mindful breath each hour helps to center you and slow down.

Sending out creatively positive vibes to all who are embracing that feeling within. β™₯οΈπŸ–Œ

Coping Through COVID- Wellness Tips

Guys, right now is hard. HARD.

A new week of uncertainty is ahead. Week 2 of Virtual school begins, and things are not improving COVID wise.

Sorry, I should have lead with a positive.

But I do have something I wanted to share. Something that I hope will prove helpful for you in this week ahead and those that follow.
Wellness tips that I have paired with some classic 90's hits. For me music is therapy and if COVID had hit in the 90's I would have made MANY mixes to help me through. I hope they resonate.

The start of a New Year for me usually is filled with hope, big plans, new goals, and anticipation. When the calendar finally closed the door on 2020, we clinked our champagne glasses and bid good riddance. A year like no other had finally ended. Bring on 2021. We are on day 10 of this new year and....

Stitch Rainbows of hope.

Leaning on my creative wellness this week to help offset the extra stress and challenges of kids virtual school. All seems to be going well though for the most part. A part from spotty internet with the system working in overdrive.

Make time for things that make you feel good.

Alas, we are in my favourite feel good season. 🍁

I feel most energized and aligned with myself during the fall. It is almost a sense of homecoming and reconnection with purpose.

I came upon this little journal which spoke loudly. It is time to refocus on my bigger purpose and go where my energy is pulling.
.
Journaling and connecting with a tribe of supportive and like minded people is part of this journey. I know I can't do it alone and recognize what actions are needed to progress.
.
The first and often hardest step is to begin. Push the fear aside and open up to all possibilities.

Neon brights bleeding through into fall.

This warm summer like weather has me reaching for the brights still. Painting outside as the light shifts is such a good experience and lifts the soul.

CONNECT. CREATE. selfCARE

Helping you care for your whole self.

Life is busy. For many people managing multiple demands and responsibilities- family, career, home, extracurricular activities, etc- is part of the daily routine.

Trying to keep yourself balanced and healthy is not always easy and often gets pushed aside when trying to meet all the other needs. As a result self-care and wellness can suffer and illness may result (Depression, Anxiety etc).

As a Mom of two young kids, and a certified Counsellor (CCPA), I understand these challenges and know that making time for healthy self-care is sometimes impossible. We only have so much energy and time. However, I also know that your wellness and self-care deserves as much attention and importance as the other roles.
