Living with Anxiety

I was asked recently to write up something with natural remedies for anxiety and I thought it was a fabulous idea. I suffer from anxiety and I know so many others who do as well. There are actually several things that can be done to help combat anxiety without going straight to a medication that will likely have side effects you now have to deal with. So, let’s dive in…

Things you can do:

Fitness ( Move Your Body) – Yoga and Zumba are my favorite physical activities to reduce anxiety but there are a gazillion options. Try things out until you find what works for you. It’s not a one size fits all.

Meditation or Prayer – Whatever you call it. Just get silent with yourself every day for at least 10 minutes. You will notice a difference. I am significantly more on edge on days I skip my meditation.

Practice Gratitude – It is impossible to feel anxious and grateful at the same time. I like to list 10 things I’m grateful for from my day each night before I go to sleep. Doing it daily requires you to think of the little things and rewind through your day in your head specifically looking for good. This is wonderful for the soul.

Get some sleep – Most adults need a regular 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Lack of sleep can lead to things such as increased stress, anxiety, reduced immune system function, increased blood pressure, and a whole host of other problems. When we practice relaxation and get enough sleep, these things can be significantly reduced. Quality sleep also helps to improve and renew your skin. Before bed, be sure to wash your face and hydrate well. I personally love Crunchi Charcoal Bar and Crunchi Nightlight moisturizer. Practice some deep breathing exercises and add a little lavender oil to your inner wrists. This routine helps me sleep like a baby!!

Things you can consume:

Ashwagandha – Importat Note: Not all herbs are created equal, and not all are safe for use by the general population. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should refrain from the use of Ashwagandha powder due to its ability to cause issues to the mother and baby, which can be fatal. People with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and type 1 diabetes should also avoid ashwagandha unless authorized by a doctor. 

Here are my favorite varieties: 

Gold Gummies (super tasty):

Standard Process (swallow tablet):

Earthley (liquid herb option):

CBD – Green compass is what I’ve used in the past. Usda certified organic, grown in the USA by 6th generation farmers and every bottle has a QR code so you can scan and see the full lab results (tested by an third party) for that specific batch of cbd.

Do you have any tried and true tricks for helping with anxiety? I’d love to hear them!

Let’s Get Personal

I’ve shared my back story and why I started this blog, but I haven’t shared that much about me personally. So, it’s sharing time!

💚 I have a 14 month old daughter who is literally my heart and soul.
💚 I am a certified secondary English teacher who has been blessed with the opportunity to stay home with my baby for a few years thanks to my business.
💚 I love planning and am addicted to planner supplies (give me ALL the stickers!!)
💚 My favorite food group is candy.
💚 I am a fiancé to a man I love with all my heart.
💚 I have two fur babies whom I adore.
💚 I absolutely love to do yoga and Zumba.
💚 I am passionate about the ingredients I put on my skin, on my child, and use in my home.


🤯 I am not a sales person.
🤯 I am not an ingredient guru (I’m still learning everyday!)
🤯 I am not a health freak.
🤯 I am not a makeup artist.


Sometimes people think I’m this all knowing, health crazed, makeup genius, rockstar sales person. I am a normal girl, learning how to be a mom for the first time, trying to be more conscious about the products my family uses, while sharing the green beauty movement with other women and helping them to reduce their toxic body burden! I love what I do and more than that I love that what I do allows me to be home with my little girl. 

If any of this sounds intriguing to you, I’d love to just chat more. NO pressure, you don’t have to sell me your soul (even though I am a ginger..), I’d just love to share with you what it’s really like to do my job.
