I have been using essential oils for the past few years. Mostly, I use them to help relieve headaches and to fall asleep. The two oils I used most often were peppermint and lavender. I liked to put a little lavender under my nose for bedtime and peppermint on my head to relieve those aches. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

As a blogger, it can sometimes be difficult to hold myself accountable. When it comes to writing new posts, I have no one to answer to but myself. I started this blog because I felt like I had a good grasp on how to make daily tasks easier and I wanted to share that. Lately, I haven’t been posting much because I don’t have any accountability. I needed to change that so I decided to try out a goal-setting journal. I did a little searching around and found the “daily goal setter” by Mål Paper. **Disclosure: I am a professional…

As I have aged I noticed my eyesight is starting to decline. I go to the eye doctor probably once every year or so and every time….they change my prescription just a touch. Which means I need new glasses every year. Now I am not your typical human who wears contacts or glasses all of the time. My eyesight is good enough to get me through I just need them if I need to see far away or if I am driving. I should probably be wearing glasses all the time but sometimes it’s just hard to remember. **Disclosure: I…

Fortunately, there are ways to deal with credit card debt, whether it’s making additional…

I am the QUEEN of starting a new workout routine and doing great for 3 days and then forgetting about it. Finding time and motivation to exercise has proven itself to be difficult for me. The trendy diets that have come out over the years have never interested me. If I choose healthy foods most of the time that is good enough for me. Exercising is another issue. No matter what I did I could not consistently exercise. It was never on the forefront of my mind and I just couldn’t figure it out. **Disclosure: I am a professional website…

Working for yourself and having flexible work hours can be a dream for some people. I am definitely one of those people. I love the thought of waking up and traveling whenever and wherever I want to without the restriction of having to be on time to a 9-5. One of the best ways to have that flexibility, is to do something that can be done totally online. I have discovered the ticket to that online freedom, which is…………drumroll please………..Freelance Writing! **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

My ideal Saturday morning includes waking up, drinking coffee on the couch, and heading to the store with Chase. Since January of 2019, almost every weekend included a snowstorm that made my relaxing store trip feel more like a stressful chore I needed to find time for. *Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

I have been a VIPKID Teacher for about a year now. When I signed up last year, I had no clue I would still be doing this regularly today. Connecting with people across the globe on the daily has been such a cool experience for me. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

Superfoods are known across the world as being nutrient-rich foods that can be VERY beneficial for health and wellbeing. Why would someone not want to add these foods to every meal? Oh…right…because not all superfoods taste that great. Some companies have come out with superfood blends that you can add to a smoothie or juice. This has been really convenient for those of us who make our own juice and smoothies, but I still notice they sometimes taste a little off. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

Every year I come up with “resolutions” that usually fizzle out halfway into January. Following through can be a huge downfall for me. I always come up with these elaborate plans like “I am going to work out every day” or “I am only going to eat healthy foods”. Oh, and my favorite….. “The only beverage I am going to drink is water”. I come up with these grand schemes knowing that I have no follow through and it won’t last. These aren’t realistic goals to set. That is why this year, I want to come up with ways that…
