I’m always trying to work it into my day and life.
Whether it’s yoga class, going for a run, diffusing essential oils, getting a massage, or lighting a candle,
these random acts of self-love shift my mood and energy to make me more productive, patient and peaceful
– which is always the goal!
Essential Oils. Oils have changed my life. – and my husband’s. We use them every single day on our bodies and in diffusers. My go-to faves are lavender, lemongrass, helichrysm, and grapefruit, and my hubby loves frankincense, melaleuca, peppermint and patchouli, They change your mood, your outlook, and your body’s constitution.

Vitamins and supplements.* I call them “nutrients-on-the-run” to support a healthy lifestyle. Vitamins and supplements don’t take the place of fruits, veggies or healthy fats, but they’re extra doses of sustenance and immediate energy-boosters.
Happy to talk with you about my favorite vitamin brands
Daily Harvest Superfood Smoothies, Bowls, Sundaes & Soups.* Create your own subscription box of healthy, whole food meals-on-the-go. I order 12 at a time. My fave is the Salted Caramel vegan “sundae” which consists of sweet potato, banana, dates, coconut, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sea salt, maple, vanilla and cinnamon. Almost all organic, no dairy anywhere and tastes just like a sundae. YUM!

Annmarie skin care.* I learned about Annmarie Gianni’s “wildcrafted organic skin care” products from Kris Carr. I love their Restore Travel Kit (includes Aloe-Herb Facial Cleanser, Dead Sea Scrub, Neroli Toning Mist, Anti-Aging Facial Oil, and Coconut Honey Mask) and the Getaway spa kit.

Oracle cards. Wisdom of Avalon by Colette Baron-Reid was my first (and is my favorite!) deck of oracle cards. My mentor, Carey Peters of HCI, introduced me to the cards in January 2012, and, repeatedly, they have confirmed my intuitive hits and imparted universal wisdom. I now have 12 decks & countless phone apps. I use them daily..

Manduka yoga mats.* I did a ton of research before I purchased my Manduka eKo Lite (4mm) yoga mat and I love it. It’s an eco-friendly, no-slip, biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber yoga mat which provides cushion and support without harming the planet.

Xen Strength Yoga with Danielle Diamond.* I met Danielle at Laura Belgray’s writing workshop in Cinque Terre, Italy and quickly fell in love with her “yoga with weights” online programs and videos. I am so busy that I love the time-saving approach of using weights (safely!) while posing in asanas to build muscle and balance at the same time. Plus, Danielle has been Bobbi Brown’s private yoga instructor so she’s the bomb.
Try the 28 Day Xen Strength Yoga Challenge.
Buddha Teas for the Chakras.* Organic teas that come in unbleached teabags in 7 varieties to provide herbs that support each chakra to balance your energy. The Crown Chakra tea is my favorite – it’s a high-frequency tea of lavender, nutmeg and rose petals infused with the essence of amethyst that promotes spiritual connection, bliss, and prosperity.
