First + foremost, we are sending love to you + your families during this unexpected time. I wrote this post last week and am still trying to wrap my head around how much have changed since then, it just a few short days. I decided to still share about the ways we are making wellness (both physical + mental) are priority in our home, it seems that there has never been a more important time for that than now.
At the start of 2020, as part of our goal in living more intentionally + to bring a little more magic into our everyday, we decided to bring oils into our daily routine and to gradually make the switch to a cleaner lifestyle. I purchased a starter kit through Young Living, thinking I would just bring some new products into our home, but it has ended up being so much more than that! As a family, we have seen sooooo many positive benefits + that one kit has turned into a true lifestyle change for us. Just three months in, and my biggest regret is that I didn’t do it sooner, we could not live without them now!
We are feeling so much gratitude for the steps we have made, and continue to make, towards a healthier + happier life for us and our kids by incorporating oils and other Young Living products into our everyday. With that being said, I also DO NOT want to come across like we have it all figured out, or that we are living a chemical free, perfect life over here. We still have so much to learn, we certainly use products that are not all natural, we still take medicine when we need it, and maybe most importantly, I am a full-time working mom of three — I am not spending hours of each day mixing up concoctions for anyone. The greatest part of this has been the ability to make little changes where we felt like we could, but also putting aside things I felt like were too much to do know, but that I could do later. By signing up for my starter kit, I gained access to the best community ever, facebook + other memberships groups with tons of women just like me, who want to make better decisions for themselves (and their kids) and want to find the easiest ways to do it. In short, I feel like I know more now — and when you know better, you do better!
Also, just to put it our there. Yes, I did pay money for my starter kit and do purchase products each month (many of them cleaning or skincare products I would buy elsewhere anyways) — but I now more than ever see that as an investment towards my family’s mental + physical wellness, and to teaching my girls the importance of finding tools to help them in their lives! More than worth it, ten times over.
