Energy Flow

Ignore those who speak ill to or about you and those who enable you to be self-deprecating. If it doesn’t make you happy, you can’t afford it. Your energy is on a strict budget.”

– Karen Civil

We’ve all been there. You’re in bed, scrolling on Instagram or repinning something. You’re tired but you’ve had such a full on day that you just want to go on a mental vacation.

Suddenly, you’re beyond the threshold of drowsy and officially wide awake again.

This is me now, at 2.52am. I’m not at my best when I’m overtired.

I don’t know about you but I get paranoid, combative (like why am I suddenly so creative with snarky comebacks to arguments that have happened during the day?! Delayed reaction much) and tend to buy totally ridiculous things online (plastic vacuum bags for your closet, anyone?).

As someone whom sleep has evaded half her life, I’m now at the age where if I can’t fall asleep for two hours of being in bed, I’ll get up and try again.

THINGS I DO WHEN I’M OVERTIRED & CAN’T SLEEP Take a shower to cool down my body temperature…

Layer up on essential oils on my chest, throat, temples and the small of my back. Right now, I like frankincense, cedar and lavender as I’ve been coughing a lot lately. People near us have been burning incense paper which as any fellow asthmatic will tell you, is almost a season pass to Ventolin-land. I also applied a touch of neroli essential oil as I have been a bit hard on myself lately. Importantly I pick the essential oils which are super sedative and help me calm down…

Make myself a hot cup of Milo…

Do the ‘legs up the wall‘ pose… and then get frustrated when I don’t feel it working…

Write stuff down…

Pray or read an inspirational quote or visualise something positive…

What do you do when you’re overtired and over it?

Live in the Light

…and love the shit out of yourself.

You’re Invited to the Wellness Weekend

Deep down, we all know that beauty is an inside job. The hottest serums and latest diets don’t mean much if things aren’t balanced and stable within.

Which is why we’re so pleased to be part of the WELLNESS WEEKEND on Sat 9 April.

Brought to you by The Wellness Report x Body With Soul, we’ll be joining the likes of other mindful labels (think Acai by Selva Foods, Anaya Honey, Under Armour and Palm Ave Float)  to celebrate holistic living.

Our Breathe blend will be burning in the chill meditation rooms and we’re blending some of our bestselling artisanal aromatherapy goods for you to try and take home on the day. If there’s one thing you do for yourself this coming weekend, join us.

Mmerci Encore at The Wellness Weekend

Invest in Yourself

There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.”

//

I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not a virtue. It was a disguise.”

— Anais Nin

Many times this year I’ve wondered if it were all worth it. What was the purpose. What was my purpose.

The late nights running for the train after night school, delivering stock on a lunch break, sharing, refining, redoing, explaining, giving, deleting, listening, defending, being open, being vulnerable, staying positive, letting go, resisting a hardened heart, living in the moment, thinking long term, learning how to take, remembering why I started. Comparing, envying, releasing, creating, dreaming, doing, striving, apologising, overthinking, grinding, reacting, evolving, decision-making, enduring, questioning, loving, wondering, wandering, editing, absorbing, processing, procrastinating, bulldozing, wanting, caring.

Caring. Why do you care? What is your purpose? What is the greatest unspoken desire of your heart that you are moment-by-moment trying to bring into fruition?

My only conclusion for now, is this. Perhaps I, perhaps you, were born for such a time as this. What if there is greatness within.
