Let's start with Oil Pulling. I use coconut oil and I've had great result with my allergies. I do believe my teeth are whiter & the benefits for your mouth & body are great! Let's just say I'm obsessed with waking up & plopping coconut oil in my mouth. It is recommended to do for 20 mins no more or less. Then you are to spit it out in the garbage please don't swallow the toxins. It may take a little get used to it but I encourage you to try it! It will change your life!!!
Secondly I've been journaling weekly not everyday as time & kiddos doesn't always allow for it. Either way I've been revisiting a joy I loved doing as a youngster. It's such a lovely release from the everyday hussle. Along with writing listening to positive & uplifting talks/ messages daily is such a great encouragement among the horrible news that surrounds our daily lives. Along with writing exercise is also another release. I've been trying to walk 20 minutes or more a day & 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. This has given me more energy & I love it!
Thirdly it has been our mission to have a routine of media free Sundays along with date nights weekly or biweekly. Our children have encourage date nights with each other & also taking a child for some one on one. Even if we just watch a flick together or enjoy just being in quiet listening to each other. This has been a nice delight especially since for over 7 years our focus has been our 4 blessings. Of course they will always continue to be our focus but we are enjoying a little release. We can stay home & the older ones have been great at entertaining the little ones. Or go out enjoy a small bite & reconnect. Either way I encourage others to take time to reconnect or reunite! This is an important key to holding your marriage together. Let's just say your children will appreciate your time too. Many of us don't even realize when we need a break. I encourage anyone to take the time to make a little time.
Finally I encourage everyone to find your me time, quiet space, read, feed your soul with verses, good teaching & great music it's good for everyone. Find your peace, seek your place, & most of all do the necessary things to bring them about. Release yourself whether in a book, writing or watching an adult flic. Let's face it the daily hussle of being a responsible adult, parent or boss gets to be taxing. Find your outlet and start today!!!
