New Normal.

Challenge. To create your new normal. Even if your new normal changes next week. To evaluate what you want to keep and what you want to rid your tomorrows of. The challenge this week is less than straight forward. It is a focus on developing the new you. This challenge is lifelong. Over the past month we have certainly had many changes. With change brings challenge. We have been refining what is...

Stay Calm.

Among a world of disarray and even panic our heart yearns to stay calm. Even when we do not have all of the answers; our hearts search for peace. We search for the moment that we feel that everything is going to be all right. How do we do this? How do we not become consumed in a state of panic?    As we practice social distancing we recognize a sense of urgency and, to some, even...

I have struggled with my skin for years; from acne to oily skin to dry skin. I finally found that my main problem was that I did not take care of it! I expected results without putting in the effort. Finding a...

Meal Plan.

There is nothing more chaotic then coming home trying to whip something up for supper when you know the countdown to suppertime meltdown is about to hit. Reaching level hangry is never enjoyable! I can also not handle throwing away perfectly good groceries after they had gone bad.  I see dollar signs going out the window. This week we focused on meal planning. Not only to keep our sanity at...

Grow Something.

Growing up on a farm, my heart warms when plants grow. Unfortunately, the green thumb of my family members was not necessarily passed down to me! This challenge is to regain the appreciation for all things grown. Whether you decide to grow some herbs, get a new houseplant, or start an outdoor garden. My hope is that watching your plant grow will bring you joy and maybe even some free fresh...

Gratitude.

Every mind is different. Every heart beats faster by different triggers. Therefore one person's recipe for happiness is different than the next. We are here to find what works for us and challenge you to find what works for you. Each week we will focus on a weekly challenge and determine if incorporating this into our lives long-term would be beneficial. We encourage you to do the same. We are...
