Changing My Mindset

Changing My Mindset

Changing My Mindset

I haven’t been thinking much on about my body in the past month.   I’ve been focusing on my mind and concentrating on my career. Changing my mindset.

It’s difficult changing careers in midlife.  I have decided that maybe I need to change my way of thinking and have a more positive outlook.

Changing my mindset has been tough. I have a difficult time focusing on one thing.  I have been keeping my meditation appointments every day for the past month. I’ve been doing some meditation every morning and at night before bed.  When I meditate on a daily basis, things seem to go better in my life.

The two meditations I do are Bob Proctor Abundance Meditation in the morning and 6 Phase Guided Meditation by Vishen Lakhiani at night.  I’m focusing on abundance and confidence.

I think I’m getting more confident because recently I posted a review of a skin care product, Xtend-Life and I included a full picture of my face.  Last year I wouldn’t have done that.  You can read the review here.

The products from Xtend-Life have been some of the best I’ve ever used.  I have been struggling with my skin due to perimenopause and cannot believe the changes.  I have also noticed a change in my hair.  It’s fuller and there was a spot along the hairline where hair hasn’t grown in a very long time.  Hair is growing there now.  That was a bonus!

Things are changing for me, slowly.  My career in social media marketing hasn’t taken off like I hoped it would, but  I have become more creative.  I love posting my photos on Instagram.  My travel photos got the attention of Travel, Set, Go.  They have asked me to be an Ambassador.  Check out my Instagram photos here.  And be sure to follow me, I follow back.

If you want to know more about the deals with Travel, Set, Go or about becoming an Ambassador, go here.

Beauty, Fitness and Health From The Inside Out

be beautiful inside and out

Sometimes what’s going on inside can affect the outside.


My acne is due to peri-menopause, but what if you’re not
going through peri-menopause?! This article 8 Acne-Prone Zones and How to Manage Them talks about the relationship
between the skin on your face and your internal health. For example, if you
have acne mostly on your cheeks, it’s related to your respiratory system.  So maybe taking a walk outside for more fresh air
now that the weather is getting better will help. So happy that spring is here!

The beauty and health benefits of oils


My blog post My Essential Oils is about the oils I use every day for beauty, health and wellness.  This
article Everything
You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Beauty Oils
explains what oils to use, where
to use them and why. It even has some oils listed I didn’t know about. A great
product that has some of the oils listed is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy
Oil.  I had some success with it as
well.  You can read the review here.

Being addicted to sugar affects us mentally and physically.


I read another great article about detoxing from sugar.  This one says you can do it in 10 days. The
article explains how being addicted to sugar is an emotional eating disorder
and not a biological one
.  I think that’s
true because the first thing I want to do when I’m sad is bury my head in a
giant cake and just eat my way out of it. Sorry I put that image in your head.
Check out the article here.

Fitness for mind and body.


I’m still doing the T-Tapp workout. I actually had to stop
for a few days because my body was so sore.  Aunt Flo is here, so I don’t have any change
in my abdomen, but I did lose an inch off of my hips. You can find out more about T-Tapp here.

I started the Do You Yoga Beginner’s Yoga series this week.
My favorite day has been day 3.  It was
30 minutes of Yoga. She goes slow and explains how to do every pose,
instead of just telling you what to do. 
I put the video of day 3 below. You can sign up here


Recipe of the week:

Don’t have a recipe of the week, just a product
recommendation.  Silk now has a Cashew Milk.  I love cashews and when I saw the
commercial for the milk, I immediately went to the store to get it.  It’s creamy and delicious.  I put it in my smoothies, oatmeal and it’s
great in my favorite turmeric milk.  So
give it a try and let me know what you think!
