I am not the best at self-care and I’m willing to bet that you might feel the same way. As someone with a big heart I constantly put other’s needs before my own, and it’s something I’ve always done. Recently I’ve been trying to change that for the better, and I’m finally starting to feel like I’m starting to win the battle. Today I’ve teamed up with Burke Williams Spa to share some of my favorite ways to practice self-care in hopes that it will inspire you to take better care of yourself as well.

With back-to-school just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about dinners and how to make prep as easy and quick as possible while still maintaining a healthy diet. Today I’ve partnered withSmithfield® to share a recipe for an easy dinner with less than 30 minutes of prep time any night of the week. Often my go-to for easy dinner nights is a slow-cooker, but I find that a lot of the recipes for slow-cooker meals include a lot of processed ingredients or extra prep time and those are two things I like to avoid. With this recipe, it’s easy to create a meal that the whole family will enjoy, even picky eaters like my little one.
As I get older, I notice that my ability to get proper sleep while I travel is slowly diminishing. Whether it’s jet lag or simple restlessness, I always find myself unable to sleep at night, on planes, or waking up at odd hours. It’s been rough. I reached out to my instagram followers during my trip to Paris asking for help with battling jet lag, so today I’m sharing some of their thoughts about how to battle jet lag, and what worked (or didn’t work) for me, along with some of my own insight into how to get more sleep when you travel.
With summer coming to a close soon and back to school on the horizon I’ve been thinking a lot about the tradition of back to school shopping. Sometimes it’s hard to think about creating a minimal closet for yourself, let alone a child. My older son has recently taken an interest in shopping for clothing so I devised an activity to do with him to help him define what he likes. Today I’m sharing that with you, along with a free downloadable back to school capsule worksheet. The worksheet will help you define what your child likes and their exact needs for a back to school capsule or even year-round wardrobe.
