Have a fungus among us? (Sorry for the super cheesy line 🧀) But if you have any sort of fungus on you feet, toes, nails or anything else that you’re embarrassed by, fear no more! 2 drops of Tea Tree, then 1 drop Cinnamon Bark and Clove, then one drop Oregano and top it off with two drops of Lavender! Try this little remedy by rubbing them in, one by one, to get the layering benefits of all these oils. Bye bye nasty fungus! 👾
Cheesy selfie and long post: these past couple days I've realized something about myself. I always am looking for the next thing. Thinking "when I'm skinny I'll be happy" "when I'm done with school I won't be as busy and I'll be happy" to even now thinking "if I just didn't work nights I would be happy." I've come to realize I've never just relished in the moment. My life has constantly been me looking for whatever comes next. Now that I'm married, we are settled into our townhouse, and I have my job- what's next? I find myself not trying to be happy- yet looking for what would make me happy. I love having goals and that's great, but I've programmed my mind to not be happy until I reach something, and then when it gets here it isn't enough. While I do hate working nights (it does have its perks too sometimes) I need to just be happy in this moment. Find the happiness in my life NOW. One day I will get an opportunity to move to days, but that's not TOday, and I need to accept that. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, and honestly it's quite exhausting searching for happiness. What things do you do to release stress and be happy in the moment? Because this is new to me, and it's going to be a process.
If you’re like most people who suffer from acne, you probably look for the term “non-comedogenic” when shopping for skincare products. But in many cases, this isn’t enough, as there are many other acne-causing ingredients lurking in your skincare products that can lead to breakouts. Although it takes about eight weeks for a blemish to rear its head (literally), certain ingredients can prompt a pimple within hours by irritating the hair follicle. Cocoa butter is one of these ingredients you should avoid! Click the link in the bio for a complete list of acne ingredients to avoid
I love that I am confident in the skin I am in regardless of where I am in my journey .. yes even at 272 lbs!
My workouts are literally in my pocket at all times... I can do them at home or if I want to change things up, I can take them to the gym.
In either place I always have my plan... I never have to guess.... I have a start and and end to each workout program I do.
The more consistant I am over time the more I can challenge myself and I can see what else is possible for my body.

Have you ever taken a moment to think about what the FUCK you put on your body in the shower? Many body washes contain parabens, synthetic colors, sulfates, the list goes on. And your body absorbs these chemicals, especially more so when you're taking a shower. Some natural alternatives to consider are @lushcosmetics products, @drbronner soaps, and @burtsbees. Please be aware of what you are putting on your body.
Loving this perspective from @caihuian as we all approach what should be the most hyggelig time of year. Order, priorities, and moments. ❤️
📷: @caihuian #Repost Working on creating a little bit of order in the upcoming crazy months so that I can be sure to have my priorities straight instead of getting sucked into my usual "work-work-work-where did the months go?" #hygge ❤️ #organization#priorities#selfcare#thrivedontjustsurvive#findinghygge#hygge
If you're super interested in this make up, but you don't want to purchase it, you can be a hostess and have a party online, and get free make up! It's really easy, you just create an event and invite your friends, and I do the posting and educate your friends, and I go live and show your friends how to apply the make up😃
Spinach, chicken, and crumbled bacon for dinner tonight. Enjoyed a slice of cake and some ice cream for a coworker's birthday earlier today...felt great to enjoy every bite, not panic about it at all, and get right back to healthy eating at the next meal. #lovingmyselfwhole#focus#balance

A friendly reminder of #selfcare for my friends and fellows social workers.
I find that it is so easy to lose oneself in helping another... sometimes through helping another, we are avoiding our own battles and the process of #healing ourselves. I'm glad that attending #therapy myself and working on my own self care have allowed me to embrace humility and strengthen my inner confidence... both which have yielded greater capacity and capability as a psychotherapist, with more powerful and moving sessions of healing with my clients. #workonyourselffirst#thehealedcanhelpthehealing
I was a little unsure on how I wanted to caption this quick snap. The more I sat on the idea of sharing your usual gym photo op the more I settled for sharing why exactly I wanted to put it up in the first place. 🚫 This is the first time in my life I have ever been 'skinny' - very unhealthy, sick and skinny. I've drowned my body in unnecessary amounts of alcohol, filtered out my days and nights with drugs that I knew would harm my body, continuously did them, and eventually got sick just about every other day. It was a cycle I couldn't shake because I wasn't happy with myself to begin with so I just kept doing it. I was destroying myself. Not just physically but mentally as well. I hit my enough mark. Here is to a healthier mindset and definitely a better feeling ME. Your body deserves all of the love in the world. See to it that you give yourself that care ✌👽 #SelfCare#SelfLove#SelfAware#DarkNecessities#FindingMyGroove
"When disturbed by negative thoughts, opposite (positive) ones should be thought of. That is Pratipaksha Bhavana" ~Sutra 2.33
Happiness is dependent on your thoughts. We have the power to redirect old negative messages into new positive messages. It's the basics of cognitive behavioral therapy and yoga 101. You can only hold on to one thought at a time. Make it a positive one! Something I've been working on a lot lately and it's completely changed my mindset and actions. So grateful to be putting in the work and seeing results and watching it in the people around me ❤️ thanks to all of you that keep inspiring me on this platform and in classes- it gives me the fuel to keep going.
And leading my first Yoga Hike tomorrow, super excited!!!
Low on energy tonight. Gonna take tonight to heal my spirit some before doing more tarot readings, energy moving, or herb work. I always say give from the overflow and I must practice what I preach. This picture I took is where I'm going in my dreams tonight... Mama and memories. Goodnight babes. #asaliearthwork#dreamwork#grief#selfcare#healthehealer
One of my favorite 30 minute bike workouts to end my day with☺️ second to last practice before my first collegiate game was today along with media day & lift 💁🏻 I have found myself the past few weeks at our lifts to be pushing myself harder because of the atmosphere that is fostered within my team it seriously makes me dig down deep when I am exhausted to push myself to not only be better for myself but for my teammates, my family 🖤 Counting down the hours till puck drop on friday!!!!!!
Give yourself permission not to be not good at something. To write messy and imperfect words. To kiss the boy in the bar for no reason other than you want to. To let your legs shake during yoga. To take up space and feel totally feminine--whatever that means for you. Stand up straight. Make lists of tangible things for when you need something to hang on to:
1. Wash the sheets.
2. Wipe the counter.
3. Put away dishes.
4. Bake cookies.
Quietly and softly carve out a life on your own terms. Stop apologizing. Forgive that sometimes things take a while. Forgive the low-level, near-constant fear. Celebrate the small successes. Perhaps joy is its own body of water, wade out into it. 📸 @seandeckert
