Back to School

It's that time of year again! Good ol' school is now in full swing and as you slowly begin to slip out of your "summer coma," the curiosity of getting yourself back into the groove of things, becomes the ultimate question.
Fortunately, there are countless ways and opportunities to keep yourself, your kiddos and friends up to par and ready for this school years adventures, using 100% therapeutic grade essential oils and a healthy diet.
Here are just a few step by step ways to having a successful and healthy day:

1. Rise and Shine

Now, believe me, I know how hard waking up really is. You’re tired, not quite at a point where "jumping out of bed" has become a norm. But hey! You have to get up at one point, right? The best thing you can do in the morning, is provide yourself with a nutritious meal to kick start your day.
Eating breakfast in the morning, not only helps fuels your body but gives your brain the ultimate energy it needs to be all it can for your day’s work ahead. Skipping breakfast, forces your brain to work harder than it should to get to the point of functioning to full capacity. Think of it like any electronic that uses a battery. When you first insert a new battery into your devise, it’s quick and powered up, ready for use. Over time, when the battery begins to die, so does the speed and efficacy of the product. Our brains work very similarly. Not only is food an important and crucial way of living, but an essential booster for your day. There are plenty of nutritious morning meals in the heart of your kitchen, but just in case you seem to be drawing a blank on where to begin, here are some of my favorite breakfast recipes:
  • Breakfast Muffins: This is a great breakfast option that gives you the opportunity to whip it up before your week even starts. If you’re always in a rush, these recipes are most definitely a go to. Here is a link to some of the yummiest breakfast muffins out there: Muffins recipe. Not only does this breakfast include almost all of the essential nutrients you need such as, protein, carbs and your healthy fats, but is a palm sized bundle of goodness.
  • Avocado: Who doesn’t love avocado?! Avocado is wonderful healthy fat for you to consume, giving you an abundant amount of nutrients. Spread some avocado on your toast in the morning, splice some on your omelet or even stick a cooked egg in the middle and eat it by the spoon full.
  • Anything with Oats or Quinoa: For those that have a gluten intolerance, oats and quinoa are a great alternative. Here is a yummy and simple recipe that will give you a great boost for your day: Quinoa scramble recipe.
Not only is starting out your morning with a wholesome meal important, but surrounding yourself with the beneficial effects of essential oils, will help aid to your morning routine. As you begin to get ready for the day, I recommend diffusing Plantlife’s Awake Essential oil, helping to enlighten your morning and give you a subtle burst of life to rejuvenate your day.
This unique blend of oils, promotes mental fogginess to clear, as well as, combat drowsiness and fatigue. Ingredients include the blend of, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Rosemary.
