Did you get stuck, too? So many of us allowed the quarantine and shift to allow our edges to blur a bit. We stopped worrying so much about planning every moment because we never knew what was coming next.
It worked for. a while. However, many of us found ourselves experiencing a sense of apathy about our day- embracing that sense of impending obstacles and no longer designing our lives.
This past weekend, I was reminded about how invigorating it is to implement a system for my life- maybe not a hard and fast perfect plan, but a mold-able one with my priorities scheduled in. If you've been feeling like me and many of my friends, the fall and the transition from one season to the next- the upcoming school books and marathon of zoom sessions has created a need to input our preferences into the action steps now- lest we be plowed under by it all again like we were in the spring.
Some simple steps to ensure success for me involve preparing workout clothes in advance so even if I don't look like a perfect Kelsey Wells, I don't simply skip the movement out of convenience. I set my clothes out and don't want to leave them laying around unused like a reminder of my transgression from the self love routine.
My vitamins and my son's are set up in advance so I don't skip and feel the drain and fatigue that comes with sub par nutrition. I love my Lifelong Vitality Pack, probiotics and supplements from DoTERRA. They are bio-available which means nothing is wasted (take that literally). I add in a Mito 2 Max which is a slow release energy supplement that works at the cellular level to beat brain fog.
Most excitingly, this week, I got back to finding recipes that tempted my taste buds. So often I get discouraged around food because my health conditions limit me and time limits me, but, with my Insta Cart at the ready and my gorgeous Clean Eating Mags just waiting, I found some delicious meals that were fast, healthful and put to use the gardens we planted this year.
Even if I veer from this plan, it's exciting and empowering to have it. I cooked three meals yesterday and prepped my chocolate cherry oats in the crock pot for some of the breakfasts. I've got my bacon all set and just savored a garden fresh BLT on a flatout foldover bread. A shorter workout and walk with a friend have already increased my good vibes.
It's just nice to take something into our hands when we can. We can't control the virus, we can't control the schools, but we can control our diet, exercise and mood within our homes. When we take the time to breathe and do this, it feels good and we are more kind and loving to the ones we nurture.
How do you prepare for success?

If you aren't part of the Empowerment Community, what are you waiting for? You won't trust that natural remedies and essential oils can impact every area of your life until they prove to you that they do. Trust me. I needed a TON of reassurance that this was the case. As humans, we have a desire to think that we can produce something and invent something or create something that works better than Mother Nature. We have a brain, opposable thumbs and science right? Umm... isn't Mother Nature the very inventor of science?
Every session in the empowerment community is tailored to my friends, family and members who have enrolled by purchasing a starter kit of oils or supplements. Then, I send out recaps! If you want to participate in the live sessions and receive the recaps, it's easy! We can get you enrolled in minutes.
For those who like to listen:
For those who like to watch and listen: I send out video recaps for anyone who can't attend the live session.

Group Session #1:
Sometimes when we think of essential oils, we think of pretty smells from nature. Truly, it is that. The distilled aromatic compounds from plants grown in their native regions, they smell amazing because they are natural and 100% pure. It’s like bringing the orange grove into the house or forest bathing when you diffuse your oils.
However, many people don’t realize they can improve our mental health, support our immune systems, increase our energy, clean the house and help the body respond to or avoid a number of common health threats.
In my house, I use my oils as much to make the house smell nice as I do to decrease my worried energy, improve my attention, cleanse the counters and clear up pimples. We roll oils on our feet to sleep better, make amazing bath soaks and clean our laundry. The simplest things can be accomplished with these products.
For the spiritual and mindful in the group, we can use oils to deepen meditation, energetically clear blockages, protect from unwanted energies and increase our positive vibrations.
Our supplements are top notch and offer a 100% money back guarantee so we can use them to fill in the holes of our nutrition, optimize the health of the cells and fuel our brain with healthy omegas.
So, when you make a goal for yourself, I want you to know that the possibilities of these oils are really quite remarkable.
Part of our time will be spent in making roller balls, solutions, soaks, cleaners and blends. Part of our time will be question and answer to help you get the most from your products. A third and vital part in my mind is helping with self care. For me, a mindfulness moment and meditation paired with a nice oil is just as essential as checking off the vat of laundry soap from the to-do list. My friend, and one of our participants has her doctorate in chemistry. She has generously offered to share her family’s blends with us! I can’t wait for her to give us a more precise and scientific approach to creating solutions from nature. Thank you, Helene!
As we face our daily stressors, we have so many added layers of strain right now. We have complex problems without what seems like tangible solutions. The only control we can have is in our own hearts, minds and our reactions. Our own voice and our own compass. I hope that together, we can lift one another up and provide a space for love- the best solution we know.
Feel free to reach out to share any specific questions or requests you have!
Because our work together is so individualized, we are taking our sessions one week at a time. Participants are filling out their surveys and setting simple goals for using the oils and supplements they ordered to enhance an area of wellness. We will hold zoom sessions and I'll send you out the recap in case you miss it!
Plus, as my team offers new incentives, you are invited to join those, too! Take a look at the awesome workouts people who enroll will be able to access... four times a week with a soulful personal trainer and a caring community? Sweet.
This week we have a team wide educational event on Life long Vitality and also, a Run for Love! This is a voluntary 5k with social distancing to show solidarity over hate, racism and division.
Want to learn more? Send me an email by clicking on the "email me" button above. This is just the beginning and you are never behind! I hope you'll join us or shoot me your questions so you can decide if this is the right fit for you!
Do you believe you are worthy of success? Do you you believe you are lovable? Do you believe you are capable? Do you believe that you have power? Do you believe the world is doing something or keeping something to you? Do you take up less space? Stifle your voice? Change your opinion based on who you are around?
It might be time to tell yourself a new story about who you are.... it might be time to write a new line, to sing a new song, to consider the possibility that you are perfect just as you are. It might be time to remember that if they don't like your voice or your ideas or your creativity it isn't a match but someone else will.
Make kind people your kind-a-people and start with yourself. Tell yourself kind stories. See your gifts. Notice your beauty and strength and value. See your differences and your perspective as a vital part of the puzzle- a piece that wouldn't be filled if you weren't there to take that unique shape and space that you do.
You aren't someone who needs to beg for attention or fit in. You were made to shine and soar and belt out your own funky tunes. Tell yourself stories that lift up your heart and amplify your vibrations.
Believe you are worth it. Find a community who will help you if be more you and a lot less them.
We greet the world with this body, this mind, this energy. We respond to the world with these thoughts, these actions, these interpretations. We fuel ourselves with this food, this water, these nutrients. Wellness is a complex concept. Sleep, eating, movement, digestion, mood, confidence, self love- how do we nurture all of it?
The truth is, there is no quick fix and I think we all know that. But, just because there are multiple layers doesn't mean we can't consistently improve in our health- wellness-self concept. One step at a time, we can embrace our true nature and enhance the functioning of our body and emotions to optimize our experiences. We can create the mindset needed to enjoy this life.
The weather is going to be gorgeous. The fire will be warm. My journal is ready. It's time to weed the mental garden. Saturday is the night!
Bring your pen, bring your worries, your stress, the baggage you've been carrying around for too long. Prepare to let that SH** go. They say in order to grow flowers, you have to weed the garden- create space for the good stuff to grow. People are like that. We have seeds that were planted in us as children, that we planted in ourselves as adolescents and adults. Sometimes the seeds are not positive. They grow the thorny weeds we avoid on our path of life. They show up in our attempts to self-protect, limit, and hide. They show up when we are angry or irrational without seeming reason. Do you really want to carry those fears and beliefs with you into today? Tomorrow?
It's time to clean our inner landscape and make room for roots to grow- to nurture our true selves, our hopes and our dreams. Join me for a free Empowerment night. I will be going live through Zoom fireside at 7pm.
The plan, bring your journal, prepare to download your mental weeds. You can stay muted as you recall some of the key elements of your fear or stress that holds you back. We will turn those fears into affirmations that empower us to move in the direction of our possibilities rather than our limitations!
Make sure you register for the free event using the button above. I will send you the Zoom link!
