MAKE TIME TO UNPLUG

From someone who used to be allergic to the word “unplug” I somehow managed to (years later) learn how to do so. Not so much to do it but I learned why I NEEDED to do it! For my mind, body and soul…

It doesn’t matter what career you are in, if you work from home or take care of your family. All of these are job and you MUST take the time to unplug, relax and maybe even meditate. Be grateful for what you have. Take the time to write these things down in a journal. Create a zen for yourself. Create a happy place to escape to even if it just in your mind.

When you take the time to do this you will come back to wherever you needed to get to faster because you are feeling so refreshed.

When I gave myself this challenge of writing 30 blogs in 30 days for my How To Series I thought it was honestly going to be a piece of cake.

Ummm…

That was not the case. I had to create a posting schedule for 30 days and five weeks that would make sense and excite my readers. Manage the professionals posts that were sent to me as I had many guests help me create a few posts each week. Then I had to share my story as well as a few others every day. Almost every post was at a minimum of 1,000 words.

And I am so happy and thrilled to share with you that today is Blog #30. The end of my How To Series. I am not going to lie when I tell you how proud I am that I achieved this personal goal of mine. Again…

That being said I am going to take my own advice and unplug this weekend. I’m going to take deep breathes, write in my journal and just escape from my norm…

Aside from unplugging I will be working on The Happy Workaholic Podcast!

I wanted to leave a few of my favorite “unplugged” quotes. Please enjoy them below…

It was true pleasure writing this series every day and I truly appreciated all of the comments here as well as all over my social media channels.

HOW TO BE WELL

Today I wanted to share a few things that you really should do to just BE WELL! These tips are great for your overall health and well being. Don’t be overwhelmed if you haven’t done any since last year just make it a priority to get them done throughout the month. The first step is making a list…

When was the last time you went to the dentist or your primary doctor? If it’s been a while make a phone call and schedule an appointment. It really is that simple! Everyone is so busy and working these days that we sometimes forget to make the time to take care of ourselves.

Well my friend now is the time…

Follow up with any doctors that you have been putting off. I am telling you this as it has become my full time job for over a year now since learning over my NMO diagnosis.

Do you know how many patients your doctor will see in a week? I doubt it! You are just another name on a list. It is YOUR JOB to follow up if you want answers. If you are not sure how to do so email me and I will give you a step by step. I am telling you I am a PRO at this sh*t! Sorry for the swears but it is necessary. I feel like I am saving my own life every day.

YOU must be your own advocate and be proactive in any and all things medical. Always, ALWAYS get a second opinion if you are looking for answers regarding a specific medical issue you happen to be going through. And maybe even a third opinion. Don’t be shy or feel bad! This is your life we are talking about. You only have one to live so you must make the best choices in these matters. Again, I am telling you all of this from experience…

SELF CARE. Do you partake? If not, make the time. Even if it is ten minutes. Meditate, listen to some relaxing music, journal, listen to a podcast or cook a delicious meal. What ever your body is craving. Mind, body and soul. Just check the hell out! It is so important to do this every day or every other day even if it’s for five minutes. It will completely change the mood you were in. When you have more time like on a Saturday or Sunday treat yourself to a spa day. Either at a new hotel or at home. I am not going to lie. I love my DIY spa days. I put on a face and hair mask, sit in a bubble bath and just zone out. At times I bring a book or even my tablet to catch up on my shows. I know seriously? Yes. I am that girl! However, don’t knock it until you try it. Having a tv in the bathroom is amazing. Why do you think they are in your hotel bathrooms? Hello? lol

Lastly, I want to share something with you that has really been helping me through my recent health diagnosis. That is doTERRA Essential Oils. I tried them once and I was sold. I just love the fact that they can help you from the inside out. You can use them topically for your body and your home as well. Adding them in all my healthy juices and meals I create just adds so many additional health benefits. This info is just a tiny bit of what the oils can do for you and your overall well being.

I believe so much in this product that I have now become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. What that means is that you can order all your doTERRA Essential Oils through my website which you can find right here.

As always, sharing is caring. If you have a friend that you feel could benefit from today’s blog post or anything else on my site I would love it if you could share it with them!

Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you do to “be well” and take care of yourself or maybe how you would like to change.

Wishing you a wonderful Day!

One more thing…

Today on #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised for US nonprofits through Facebook’s charitable giving tools. I would truly appreciate it if you would create an NMO fundraiser on Facebook or hit the “Donate” button on The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation’s Facebook page. Neuromyelitis Optica is the autoimmune disease that I have and that there is no cure for. A disease where getting a chemo treatment twice a year for the rest of my life is the only way to prevent a relapse. You can learn more about NMO here…

Donations can be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit, with a max of $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. And, Facebook is waiving all fees for donations to nonprofits on #GivingTuesday. Don’t miss out on this incredible fundraising opportunity to double your donations! #GiveTueNMO

Thanks for letting me share this today…
