SWEET POTATO 🍠
i’m literally obsessed with sweet potato 😍 it’s probably the one thing i could live off for the rest of my life if i had to!
they have some really amazing health benefits aswell which include:
✔️ they help strengthen our eyesight & boost immunity against disease ✅ they help to ensure a balanced & regular source of energy without the blood sugar spikes
✔️ they’re a great source of magnesium, potassium & vitamin D
✅ they contain iron which supports a health immune system
they’re super versatile which i absolutely LOVE 🙌🏼 i don’t eat regular toast/bread as it leaves me feeling really heavy; so i often make sweet potato toast, whack some yummies on top & i’m done 🤤
Caring for someone who lives with you may become overwhelming. It is important to create your own space both physically and mentally when you feel like you are always surrounded by stress. Some ways to do that are through breathing exercises, mindfulness, and meditation. Focus inwardly and centre yourself to give yourself a break from your surroundings.
Try this: Clear your mind of all your thoughts and focus solely on your breathing. Focus on your core, the centre of your being. From there, start slowing expanding your attention to the areas surrounding you. Notice the little things while continuing keeping your focus on your breathing.
“I know that everything I am, is because of everything that I've been through and how I've internalized it.” “Through the many challenges that I have faced with my own mental health, I have discovered just how difficult it can be to get help. When I needed help the most, the only known resources available to me simply added to my stress instead of getting to the root of my problem. Finding academic accommodation in difficult times can be much more challenging than people realize, and I think that these systems need to change so that they are more supportive and empathetic towards those battling with their own personal traumas. When I went looking for support, each place I visited expected me to do more work. So, for me, having all of these problems actually made me less likely to get help. That's such a foreign thought to think that the more problems you have, the less likely you are to get help.” In short, the system really needs to change.
One method of getting through a tough situation is to regulate your body chemistry so that your emotional arousal is at a level in which you can think clearly about the decisions you are about to make. This is called a crisis survival skill.
Your nervous system is made up of two systems: parasympathetic and the sympathetic system. The sympathetic system is the one at work, creating the fight or flight response when you feel a crisis situation happening. The parasympathetic system regulates emotion and when the fight or flight response is happening, emotional regulation becomes decreased leading to the feeling of high emotional arousal.
Changing your body chemistry is one way to TIPP the balance of your nervous system to balance the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems. You can do so by changing the Temperature of your body, engaging in Intense aerobic exercise, Pacing your breathing, and Pairing muscle relaxation with breathing exercises.
These are ways in which you can practice crisis survival skills to balance your nervous system in order to get past any short-term crisis situation.
Crisis survival skills are skills that you can use in life when things aren’t going well for you. They help you tolerate and survive crisis situations or situations in which life doesn’t feel good or fair. These are short-term situations or feelings that can’t be avoided. Crisis survival skills are meant to be used in short-term situations because overuse can prevent the development of crucial problem-solving skills.
It may be hard to distinguish when to use crisis survival skills. Think about it as skills to use when your immediate reaction would make the situation worse. You can use these skills to prevent situations from becoming full-blown problems or immediate help is not available.
Some crisis survival skills that can be practiced are:
STOP – to stop the engagement of impulsive behaviour
Weighing out Pros and Cons
Changing your body chemistry to gain clarity
You can see these skills working to improve your situation when you feel you are more able to tolerate the emotions you are feeling or are more able to handle the situation. It may help with emotional regulation, however, if it doesn’t, focus on surviving the unpleasant situation and it will pass to a point where you can either get help or you can make a clear decision that isn’t governed by your emotions.
DEARMAN is another acronym that can be used if you need to engage in a difficult but important conversation. This is a skill you can also teach to your family and friends to help improve communication on all levels, however, this is particularly helpful as a caretaker for engaging in conversations with loved ones but don’t know how to approach the conversation.
DEARMAN stands for Describe, Express, Assert, Reinforce, (stay) Mindful, Appear (confident), and Negotiate. Describe the situation using facts, being objective, without judgmental statements. Clearly express how you feel about the situation and why it is important to you. Assert your wishes, ask for what you want. Identify some form of positive rewards when they respond consistently to your request to reinforce that behaviour or response. Stay mindful of your goal and avoid distraction from your objective. This may result in continual repetition of DEAR until you reach your objective (i.e., having a conversation with them about their mental health or their progess). This step is especially important to keep in mind when they start using attacks or becoming defensive. Appear confident in your position so that they will see you are serious. You may not feel confident, but playing the part is important to show you deserve respect as well. And finally, negotiate and be willing to offer and ask for alternative solutions to the problem.
An example of starting a conversation using the DEARMAN skills can look like this:
“It has been over a week since I last saw you at work. I am worried about your mental health. I would like to meet up with you for coffee to catch up on your progress. If it helps, I can pick you up and coffee will be on me.” DEARMAN can guide you in engaging difficult conversations that need to be discussed but hard to approach.
Many people who suffer from anxiety and depression feel that it is difficult to talk to their family and friends about how they feel. Showing you are willing to listen is a big step to gaining their trust and opening up to you. GIVE is an acronym for a useful listening skill that stands for (be) Gentle, (act) Interested, Validate, and (use an) Easy manner.
Be gentle when approaching your friends. People generally respond better to gentleness than to threats or harsh words. Approaching them and letting them know that you are there to talk. Be interested in the other person’s thoughts, point of view, and opinions. Choose to listen (really LISTEN) to their reasons and be focused on them. Validate what they feel, their situation, and their experience without judgement. And lastly, put the person at ease by being lighthearted, easy-going, and use humor. This will help create a comfortable environment in which they feel that they can open up to you about their situation. .
Although I have been fortunate enough to have never suffered with mental illness, nor is it something I have to think or struggle with personally, I have friends that do. Through their experiences with anxiety disorders, I have realized just how debilitating it can be. Coming into university, I didn't realize how big of a thing mental illness was. Of course everyone gets stressed, I feel stressed, but I didn't realize until I got close with these people, did I see just how exhausting and weakening it can be.
Through these friends of mine, I have come to understand how much support can help people.
Anxiety disorders are enough to manage on their own, and it’s so much worse when you don’t have anyone you can talk to about it, anyone who has your back. So whenever I see one of my friends having some trouble with anything I just say "do you want to talk?" and a lot of the time they will say yes. So go to your friends and don't be afraid. Just say, “hey something is bothering me,”
and just talk to them about that, because it really helps.
"I've been a caretaker for my boyfriend who I have been dating for the past 4 years. He has struggled with his mental health and with depression. Being there for someone you love can be so hard on you, but you often times don't want to acknowledge the fact that you yourself are struggling as well. You almost feel guilty to worry about yourself when the person you love is going through something that is so much worse.
For someone else who is caretaking for a loved one with depression, my advice would be don't be afraid to admit that you yourself struggle sometimes. It's important to find ways of managing the struggle, setting limits, and getting help for yourself if you need it. Sustainability is important, because eventually there will be improvements." #mentalhealth#mentalhealthweek#getloud#shareyourstory#supportshealth
Caring for your own well-being is important as a caregiver to prevent emotional and physical burnout. The regular practice of mindfulness has both physical and psychological benefits for individuals such as caregivers to take care of their own emotional, physical, and mental well-being. This in turn allows them to provide maximum care for their family, friends, or patients. Taking time to care for your own mental well-being is the key to being the most effective caregiver you can be.
Regularly practicing mindfulness can yield benefits including, but not limited to: - Increasing emotional regulation, and decreasing disruptive and ruminative thoughts and behaviours
- Enhancing immune response and decreasing psychosomatic symptoms
- Increasing sense of well-being, decreasing psychological distress and risks of relapse

What is holding YOU back??
Is your immune system already kicking ass? Do you feel like you don't need extra support with your health or with your emotions? Do you feel like you don't need extra support for your muscles, gut health, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, cardiovascular, endocrine, nervous system? How about monthly support? How about when you are having one of those days when you need extra support for those emotions that are all over the map? When your child is having a meltdown or doesn't have a restful night because they are below that wellness line. Do you have it all together at work and don't need some extra support to help you focus and get through the day?
If you are one of the few people that doesn't need extra support man, my hat is off to you!!!! Are you a skeptic and think nah these oils aren't going to do anything! Do your research ask your friends that are already ahead of the game and using and diffusing. Listen to stories from the once ginormous skeptic to one of the biggest oilers you now know. Seriously they are that incredible at allowing your body to do what it was intended to do!!!! 🙌🏻
2018 is here!!!!
Looking for a better version of you?
You guys it is right here! These 11 oils and diffuser have changed so many lives and it is right here for the taking.
PREVENTATIVE care is where it's at! You know.... taking care of yourself supporting a stronger body and mind.
Let me break it down for you. When you support a healthy body what happens? You sleep better, eat better, have more energy, are happier, overall you are in a great place. If you don't support a healthy body you are just setting yourself up for getting sick, not sleeping, feeling tired, sluggish and grumpy all the time.
It is so simple people preventative care is like maintenance for your body. Do you take care of your cars, trucks, boats, campers, houses? Well then you should be taking care of yourself and not waiting for something on you to "breakdown" before fixing it.
The point of the oils is to not leave them sitting around and get sick and then say oh let me use these instead of taking medicine. The entire point of essential oils is to use them DAILY throughout the day to do what? Support a healthy body, maintain a healthy body so that you are living above the wellness line and not below it.
That wellness line is a very thin line and can go either way for you. I choose to live above it by supporting a healthy body and mind because I have spent the majority of my life on the other side and I know how bad it can be. 😷🤧🤮😴

Do you know what I love? For every family that chooses me to help them make healthier choices with Young Living for their family you in return are helping support me and my family.
This is how I make my living and I am so thankful that I get to do this every single day. I love helping others and sharing what I have learned and experienced. The best part is getting feedback from you about the changes you have made and all the amazing testimonies and it truly does warm my heart.
I am so passionate about sharing this company and their products with you because they work! It may sound dramatic when I say this but it has changed every aspect of my life. I no longer need to treat my symptoms because I now SUPPORT my systems.
I no longer clean with toxic products, wash our dishes, wash and dry our clothes with toxic products. I no longer put synthetic vitamins and supplements in our bodies. I no longer use personal hygiene products that contain dangerous chemicals and toxins for my family. I no longer burn candles, use plug-ins or use any sort of air fresheners I use my diffusers all through the house.
All of these little changes have made a world of difference in our health and well-being. I have said it before and I will say it again we as a nation are on chemical overload it is all around us affecting our health in so many negative ways. Every little change you make has a huge impact on your health.... in a good way 😊Do your research check out this amazing company called Young Living and all the incredible products they offer. Read their seed to seal learn about the love and care they put into this company for us their consumer. 🙌🏻
My dear Friends husband was visiting us yesterday and I noticed he had a cough. I mention this because a couple of months back, he had pneumonia. He is familiar with the oils, and I asked, if I made this recipe, would he take it, 'Well, yes,' he said, 'whatever I need my body will use and whatever it doesn't need will be eliminated!' I quickly made him 2 gel tabs, 2 drops Oregano, 2 drops Thieves, 2 drops Lemon with olive oil as a carrier. He took one, I sent him home with the other tab an an opened bottle of Thieves💫I received a text this AM from my Friend, saying her husband did not cough AT ALL last night💫powerful little bottles of oils and these 3, Kosher too boot (full list of Kosher oils on the YL web site)🌿🍃🌿#yleo#youngliving#essentialoils#lemonoil#thievesoil#oreganooil#kosher#supportshealth#nocoughing#colorado
It's right there at our fingertips.....
I ditched my beloved Dawn dish soap that I have used my entire adult life after scanning it with my Think Dirty app! It is shocking that all the years of doing dishes I was exposing myself to harmful chemicals and toxins that were being absorbed into my bloodstream. It scored a 9 out of 10 with 10 being the worst. It is terrifying knowing that on a daily basis what we are exposing ourselves to. I made the switch to Thieves dish soap and there is no going back ever! With each and every product that we ditch that are full of harmful ingredients the better off we are. Replacement buying is so easy to do. Just start with one product at a time maybe your cleaning product or shampoo whatever you choose every small change you make adds up to a healthier you. Remember we are the ones choosing the products that we and our family use every single day so make your choices the safest and best for your family.
Let me start this by saying.... I am so HAPPY to be home after being out of my house for three weeks between a week camping going away for a friends wedding for six days and then right back to another week camping phew it feels great to be home with INTERNET.
There is nothing better than coming home to your June essential rewards order sitting there waiting to be opened. Last month consisted of a lot of replacement buying. I bought another Thieves fruit and veggie soak, Thieves laundry detergent, Thieves hard lozenges, 3 pk of Thieves spray, clear vegetable capsules, Animal Scents shampoo, 2 Thieves dish soap, Life 9 probiotic, Lavender bath and shower gel, and ART intensive moisturizer. Now for the essential oils.... Lavender, Grapefruit, Tea Tree, Stress Away, and AromaEase. By purchasing what I needed I qualified for all of the June FREE promotions Ningxia Nitro, Spearmint, EN-R-GEE, Patchouli, and Cypress and to me this was a huge score because I love and use all of them.
Do you have any questions about essential rewards and how you can receive free products? Just let me know I would love for you to receive free products along with earning points just for ordering what you need each month. Points are just like cash that you can apply for more free products. It is a win win every single month.
I have had quite a few young girls show interest in wanting this premium starter kit but always come back with I can't afford it. Well that makes me sad because I think everyone deserves a chance to make better choices for their health and wellbeing. So I started thinking about what a great gift this would make for that girl that is graduating from high school or college.
For that high school graduate what better way to get them prepared for college away from home learning how to take care of themselves. Getting their body systems in tip top shape before they are off and running especially their immune systems there is nothing better than a super hero immune system to help them kick butt all year long. Lets face it we all know that most college students don't make the best choices when it comes to eating properly and getting sufficient rest so lets help them out by getting them on the right track. I also want to mention how these oils support emotions there are going to be days where they are homesick, stressed out, sad, exhausted, need a pick me up to study or work on that paper teach them to reach for oils instead of something else that is where the oils come into play. As for that college graduate this is perfect for them to start incorporating into their daily lives as they start their new life journey in the big world. We all know they will be pinching pennies paying off student loans, rent, utilities and so on. So go ahead and give them this gift of wellness. I know I would love to receive this. For the girls that really do want this and don't receive it as a gift no worries because you now have the option of Paypal payments interest free for 6 months $27.00 a month which works out to be less than $7.00 a week so go ahead and treat yourself for all the hard work you put in :) #giftofwellness#preparethemnow#greatgraduationgift#teachthemwellness#buildstrongbodysystems#superheroimmunesystem#supportswellness#supportsemotions#supportshealth
Don't mind if I do..... I am off to go soak in a nice bath with one of my Lavender calming bath bombs. Can you all say ahhhhhhhhh?! It doesn't get much better than this what a perfect way to unwind at the end of the day not to mention how amazing I am going to sleep. Young Living also has Stress Away bath bombs that are in my ER cart as I write this although I am pondering pushing them through with a quick order. **Lavender essential oil—renowned for its soothing and calming aroma—makes the Lavender Calming Bath Bomb perfect for unwinding after a long day, while the Stress Relaxing Bath Bomb is a special treat thanks to the inviting, vanilla-lime scent of Stress Away oil.

Here is another premium starter kit combination for your diffuser to help get you moving.
I had a late start moving around here this morning even though I had great intentions to get things done this morning and head out and run to the store but it didn't quite work out that way. I started by catching up on E-mails and doing a few posts on my business page then chatted on the phone to two of my besties one for quite awhile but you know what? It's important to take a few minutes and connect with friends to vent, cry, and mostly laugh because after all that is what friends are for.
So after getting a little vitamin D for about 45 minutes it was time to get things done. I grabbed the Peppermint and Lemon put it in the diffuser and also did a great big inhale to get me moving and that is exactly what I did!!! I moved.... everything is almost done I just need to run the vacuum and then I can go on my walk. So there you have it if you need a little push to get moving try this combination it is fabulous. Once again smells amazing in here and a few extra benefits I can breathe freely and little critters hate peppermint 😀
All I can say is be prepared..... I started doing this a few days ago and I am loving everything about it!!! I do not tolerate the heat like I used not sure why but I can't. Anyway the other day was really hot out and I just felt really crappy because of it so I came in and put a small amount of cold water in a bowl and added two drops of Peppermint to it and just applied it to the back of my neck and chest and it felt amazing. It cooled me right down and kept me feeling cool long after the washcloth was gone because of the Peppermint. Then I had an epiphany and was like hellooooo let me put this in a baggie and pop it in the freezer. Well let the angels sing because I took it out this morning and molded it to the back of my neck and it felt incredible!! When I was done I popped it back in the freezer for the next time and lets just say the smell of the Peppermint and the feel of it on the back of my neck and chest feels great and it's been about 50 minutes since I put it back in the freezer.
This is great to use for sore muscles, head tension, monthly cramps I think it would also be great for women that are experiencing what happens during menopause. I hear a lot about how miserable some of the symptoms make you feel so maybe next time pop this on the back of your neck for some relief. This is another little gem that comes in your premium starter kit 🙌🏻
Good morning!!! Not quite sure why I was up so early this morning but it was really nice sitting in the semi dark with a nice cup of coffee lost in thought for awhile. I figured I might as well get my diffuser up and running and really enjoy this down time.
I thought I would do this fabulous trio this morning as I sit in the peace and quiet sipping my coffee. This isn't a great picture but you get the idea.
Once again using the oils that come in the premium starter kit I chose StressAway, Lavender, and Lemon perfect for this morning of chillaxing listening to the thunder it smells heavenly right now and I couldn't be any more relaxed and content.
If you have your kit open it up and get these three diffusing right now! You can thank me later once you peel yourself off the couch 😜Two of the most calming oils StressAway and Lavender combined with the uplifting citrus scent of Lemon and you can't go wrong. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G 🙌🏻
If you don't have your kit what are you waiting for?? http://yldist.com/dawnsdailyessentials/
I absolutely love this combo talk about calming and relaxing...... My house smells so good and that alone puts me in a fabulous mood :)
If you aren't diffusing your oils daily you are really missing out. I have my diffuser going during the day and I always have it diffusing at night with the oils that help my husband and I really get a great nights rest because lets face it we all need that!!!
Utilize your premium starter kit these two oils are in that kit along with many more that you can diffuse alone or with another fabulous oil. I will try and post a different combination daily just using the premium starter kit oils. Like I have said numerous times this kit that YL put together for us to start our journey with has it ALL covered. From supporting your physical wellness right down to supporting your emotions. So go ahead and look in your kit grab an oil or two and diffuse away it really does make a difference!
We must take care of ourselves because if we don't what do we have left for our family? We have to pour into our family whether we are feeling good or not we are the glue that holds our family together and I know that for me I did a much better job when I was feeling happy and healthy. So if you are tired of feeling sick and tired all the time and are finding yourself in a not so happy place you my friend can change that. Emotions pretty much rule our lives and go hand in hand with physical wellness. When you are happy and in a good place you are unstoppable in all that you do but when you are in a bad place with feelings of anger, jealousy, sadness, anxiety what do you feel like doing? For me I wanted to isolate myself from everybody lay in bed all day and just detach myself from reality. But as we know that is not reality and we can't do that when we have people depending on us.
You see YL put together the most amazing premium starter kit that you could ever want. They put in it 10 everyday oils plus a bonus oil of stressAway along with samples and an awesome diffuser. These oils cover everything from supporting happy healthy emotions right down to offering support for our entire body!!! They covered it all. This is the kit that I started with and it changed my life. I will never go back to the sad, depressed, angry person that was always physically sick because of it. Do you want to learn more about what these oils can do for you? All you have to do is ask and I will be more than happy to talk to you about it. GO on over to my website and check out the different kits and products that YL has to offer. They are incredible.
Calling all ladies that need that extra monthly support!! Look no further because Dragon Time and Clary Sage are here to help a sister out!! We all know what happens each and every month with how we are all over the map with our emotions. One minute we are happy and life is grand the next minute we are sobbing uncontrollably at every little possible thing and when your husband looks at you and says oh it’s that time of the month huh? all you want to do is punch him in his throat and look for the nearest divorce lawyer because the sight of him just infuriates you or is that just me? So yea I guess we go through a gamut of emotions that we have zero control over but no worries ladies because help is on the way in the form of these two gems. Combining the two are a win win situation and not only do they support you each month they also offer you support for your reproductive system, boosts libido, supports happy healthy emotions, supports calmness, supports hormones, also supports the physical changes that we go through as well and some of us have it worse than others. So go ahead do a little research and get some further information on these two oils. I will tell you I am so thankful to have healthier alternatives now.
One sentence sums it up!
Essential oils are not made to smell nice they are made to do a job!!!
This makes me crazy and I find myself saying it over and over and over again. Yes some essential oils smell over the top amazing some smell ok and some just downright don't smell good at all. But they all have one thing in common and that is they do a job and they do it well.
I am only speaking about Young Living EO's. There are companies out there that ALL their oils smell fantastic and that is because they are made up of perfumes and fillers that are dangerous to be applying and inhaling never mind ingesting and they tell you straight up DO NOT take internally but are labeled 100% pure or organic hmmmmmmm and why is that?
Ok back to the subject at hand like I said there are some oils that you might love and some not so much. I am always straight up honest with you and I will tell you I cannot stand the smell of DiGize I mean I really detest it where other people really like it. BUT and the big but here is I USE it. Because it works!
It breaks my heart that I have had people smell some of the oils and say ewwww I will never use that oil I can't stand the smell of it. If you want to support your body the best way there is then apply it to the bottoms of your feet where it will still do its job but you don't have to smell it all day. So many people are missing out on the benefits of these oils just because they don't like how they smell. I want to also remind you that the oils smell very different in the bottle than they do on your skin but again most important is that they are doing a job and they are doing a kick ass job at supporting your body.
