monthly mantra : may 2016
Posted on May 30 2016
I can’t believe it’s the end of May already! These mantra posts feel like monthly journal posts that connect with the values of the brand & how they integrate into life each month.
I recently returned from a trip to Amsterdam (beautiful city!) & Iceland.
This month’s mantra is based on my inspiration from the trip & how I’m bringing it into everyday life.
harmony: Relaxing in hot water! From the Blue Lagoon to the ‘secret lagoon’ we visited, it was so special & calming to relax in natural hot springs made by nature. I’m inspired to take more baths at home, & love to use epsom salts & candles.
love: As much as I love to travel & see new things, I’m looking at how I can cultivate that feeling of inspiration & exploration in the moment. Loving what is, right NOW, with appreciation for the present moment no matter where it happens.
beauty: Connecting with nature to get grounded. The natural beauty of Iceland was overwhelming & awe-inspiring. From waterfalls to geysers, mountains, glaciers, lava rocks & jagged cliffs – all exist together in the expansive landscape.
Since returning I’ve brought more plants into my space…& a few more crystals as well!
And, hair masking for beauty! The Blue Lagoon dried out my locks a bit. The best thing I’ve used is coconut oil applied on dry hair, then wash it out a couple hours later. Also enjoyed some avocado on my face to rehydrate after flying.
Nature-based & simple, it doesn’t get better than that.
truth: Appreciating the simplicity of living with only what’s necessary when traveling, I’m inspired to simplify my belongings at home. Living in clutter-free spaces for 9 days was a powerful lesson that the less that’s there = the less that’s there.
Kicking into high vibe space-clearing mode going into this new season.
