The Truth About Self Care No One Is Talking About

Purpose With Corie Clark: Episode 21

 

 

 

The truth about self care

Self care is a hot topic these days and everyone & their brother are jumping on the bandwagon. 

While I’m a huge fan of true self care, and I know there are plenty of people out there that need it and don’t do it, I also think some people have gotten it a little twisted.

When you’re using self care as an escape from life. Instead of doing the inner work first to be set free from whatever crap is going on in there, that’s not self care.

People are escaping with binge shopping, binge eating, drinking, Netflix, and other mindless things. None of those things are bad and we should all be able to have some mindless fun once in a while.

BUT!

True self care means you’re taking care of yourself.

That requires discipline. True self care is actually a little less fun that it sounds.

When you put in the work of taking care of yourself, you DO get to do those...

How Sleeping Smarter Changed My Life

business health Mar 14, 2019

About a year ago, I read the book, Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson. It completely changed the quality of my sleep and my overall health. Now, I'm a huge fan of sleep. I love naps, napping in the car, napping on a Sunday afternoon, snuggling in to my cozy bed early... basically any kind of sleep. I'm a fan.

But what I didn't realize was the "kind" of sleep you get is far more important than the amount you get. Now, I'm not going to rewrite the book because you can certainly read that yourself but I'm going to share with you, some of the key things I do now to get "smarter" sleep.

As an entrepreneur, optimal sleep is crucial so that I can be a good business owner and not be too exhausted to still be a good wife and mom.

On to the tips!

Prepping for sleep

Get lots of natural sunlight. This helps keep your body's hormones balanced and reminds your body that it's time to be awake!

 

Use blue blocking glasses or some sort of app to keep the blue light from your screens...

A few months ago, I started doing a little research on CBD oil and it's benefits. I kept hearing so much about it and knew it was something I'd want to try sooner or later because I'm always wanting to test out natural products and remedies to stay as healthy as possible.

I had seen a friend post about Soul CBD so I quickly messaged her to see if she was taking it! She said she had been taking a different brand but was trying this one out (and has since told me her top choice is Soul CBD). She referred to her anxiety as "Entrepreneur-itis" and I was like, "Oh my gosh! That's what I have!" Now, I don't know that that's a real thing, but for me it is!

Ever since Ryan left his salary job to join me and run this business together, I've had horrible...

Best Essential Oils for the Fall & Winter

Best essential oils for the fall & winter

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the scents. Living in Southern California doesn’t really give us that “fall feeling” when we step outside so we like to improvise and create a fall or winter feeling right inside our home. There's nothing like walking in to your home to the smell of the holidays to make you forget that it's 80 degrees outside ;) I used to want to stock up on all the fall candles but since using essential oils, I’ve learned to appreciate the natural scents filling my home instead of the harsh smells that some candles can give.

CHECK OUT ROCKY MOUNTAIN OILS HERE

Whether it’s for the smell of it or to help keep my family healthy in the cold and flu season, essential oils are a must this time of year. I've been using essential oils for quite some time and I've tried the "other guys" but I'm a huge fan of Rocky Mountain Oils. You can read about why we chose this amazing...

Kelly Leveque, Fab Four Smoothie

I recently listened to a podcast with Kelly Leveque, author of Body Love, and I was immediately drawn to her. Her passion for truly fueling your body with what is best for you was inspiring and I ordered her book from Amazon before the podcast was over. Her Fab Four Smoothies are divine!

How to make Bulletproof Coffee and the benefits

How to make Bulletproof coffee

We've been drinking bulletproof coffee for quite some time now and I love it! It tastes delicious, fills me up, and fuels my brain.  This podcast episode is what turned me on to it. I highly recommend listening because you'll learn so much about how healthy fats are actually good for you and the science behind the coffee.

We buy the Bulletproof Brand coffee because it is mold free (you'll learn more about this if you listen to that episode). We add Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil and organic grass-fed butter. It's really tasty and fuels your brain and body enough to stay in ketosis and push back your first meal until lunch time or even later.

When I'm traveling and can't bring my grass-fed butter and oil with me, I use KETO//KREME which you can read more about in my Keto tips post.

Back to Bulletproof.

I personally buy my products from Amazon and put them on Subscribe & Save to save money. The Bullet Proof Brand...

7 Reasons We Changed Essential Oil Brands: Rocky Mountain Oils

family health life Jul 21, 2017

A few years ago, one of my friends turned me onto essential oils. I’ve used them pretty consistently ever since but have been on the search for a high quality Essential Oil that was not part of a multi level marketing company. (Disclaimer: Please don't think I'm against MLMs. There are some great companies out there. With anything I use, I just truly always want to find the best option at the best price)

For the last few years, I've used both of the big oil MLMs (DoTerra and Young Living) and was very happy with both. What I wasn’t happy with was the fact that I would have to order something every month to stay active and get the best pricing. I just don’t like that kind of commitment and quite honestly I don’t need to buy oils every month. Plus, I thought their shipping was a little over-priced.

So, began my search. I do know that I should only be using the highest quality oils so I wasn't going to just jump on Amazon and buy some cheap oil. I still wanted...

20 Simple Ways To Improve Your Health

health life simplicity Oct 20, 2014

Several years ago I had sort of a "health awakening" and have been on that journey ever since. I wouldn't call myself a health nut by any means but I do try to make conscious decisions regarding the health of myself and my family. Before, I would just eat whatever and whenever not knowing that most of the food in our grocery stores were made up of harmful ingredients.

As you all know by now, I like to keep things as uncomplicated as possible.  Here are 20 simple ways to improve your health in this fast paced world we're living in. Most of these things we already know but over time we've gotten less enthusiastic and often forget to even think about them.

*Disclaimer* I am NOT a medical professional. If you need medical advice please seek a medical professional. I'm just a real human, who is also a real mom, in a real world trying to do what's best for my family.

1. Start your day right.

I'm a huge fan of getting off on the right foot. For me this means getting up well before my...

Are You Complicating Your Health & Fitness?

health life Apr 25, 2014

It's funny how we Americans love to complicate anything and EVERYTHING.  Even when it comes to our health, we complicate it. We have to try the latest fad diet or the trending workout craze, join the fancy gym, or buy expensive equipment.

Guess what. You DON'T have to join a fancy gym or hire a nutritionist to get yourself healthy! Say what???!

The truth of the matter is, we already have everything we need to live a healthy life. It really doesn’t have to be that complicated. We were made to be active and to eat healthy food. Food is fuel so there’s no reason to stop eating it.

I’m not a doctor or even a nutritionist so I’m not going to give you any medical advice. {If you do need medical advice please see your doctor.} What I can give you is advice from a wife, mom of 3 kids, normal, real life person that is not blessed with a speedy metabolism that allows you to eat candy bars all day and do 5 sit-ups before bed to get a flat stomach. It takes...
