Sweet Dreams

It feels so good to get ready for bed.

You filled your diffuser with beautiful oils, you rolled calming nourishing pure-fume on your neck, wrists, anywhere, everywhere.

You fluffed your beautiful sheets and pillows. You have the most delicious book ever written beside your bed.

Your bedroom is cool, it smells inviting and relaxing, the lighting is soft .It’s ready for you to leave your troubles at the door and snuggle into sleepy time.

Feeling clean, cool, relaxed, you climb into bed, the beautiful soft sheets and soft fluffy pillows are waiting for you. You settle in for a few minutes with your favorite author, and feel your tension and busyness of the day melt away.

When you are ready, you turn off your side table lamp and the room goes to a luscious welcoming darkness. The bed is the most comfortable bed ever, your body is clean and fresh, the room is cool and dark.

You snuggle down into the covers, close your eyes, take a few deep breathes, and off you go into a deep restful rejuvenating sleep.

Your lips form a slight smile as you drift off into that deep nourishing sleep.

The morning sun peeks through your curtains, the birds are singing their morning songs, your eyes open and you realize that you are ready, eager to begin your day.

Your body, your mind are ready. Your body, your mind have had a nice long chunk of time to collect, sort, and store the nourishing nuggets from yesterday.

You are ready to glide through today with joy, grace, and ease.

Because you just slept like a baby.

Let’s talk about sleep

Sleep is important for healthy metabolism, a healthy immune system, and healthy organ function, just to name a few things. During restful sleep, your body heals and your brain gets a necessary reboot. Just like your electronics need a reboot, so does your brain.

Up to 90 percent of adults report mental stress and anxiety as the number one reason that they can’t shut their brains off at night in order to easily fall asleep.

According to Dr. Ashley Anderson, there are some lifestyle changes that can help improve the quality of your sleep.

1. Own your morning. Get up early or at least on time. Give yourself time to organize your thoughts, and your day. There are anti-anxiety practices that you can do to start your day on the right foot. Things like deep breathing, meditation, journaling, or spiritual reading can help you begin the day in a calm, stress free mood. Unlike getting up at the last possible minute and rushing to get to work on time.

2. Create space within your day to de-stress. Take a break. Stroll outside. Listen to a short guided meditation. Relax in the sun for a few minutes. Take time to relieve some stress during the day to keep it from piling up at bedtime.

3. Create a good night time routine, especially in the last hour before bed. As parents, we know the importance of a good bed time routine for our kiddos. We need one too! Things like a warm bath, relaxing with a good book, dim the lights, low impact stretching, massage, journaling, etc., set you up for a good night’s sleep. Your brain will get in line with the program and pretty soon, you won’t have any trouble falling asleep.

There are some tools you can use to help you fall asleep easily. Namely essential oils. Cedarwood, Frankincense, Vetiver, Petitgrain, sleep blends, and more.

I work with doTERRA Essential Oils. Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Vetiver are my go-to oils. doTERRA has curated a sleep wellness program which includes bath salts, some body butter infused with their sleep blend, a gratitude journal, a spritzer/sprayer for the bed linens, and more.

I have been using this program for two months and my sleep has improved noticeably. My energy is more consistent, my memory is better, focusing is easier, my food choices are better. The best thing is my good mood. I wake up looking forward to my day.

With my established bedtime routine, my brain is recognizing the signals and I’m ready for lights out quickly and fall into a deep restful sleep easily. This is after years of not getting enough sleep. The difference is stark.

Getting a good night sleep consistently is one of the best things you can do for yourself, your loved ones, your life.


A good night’s sleep is living well.

Did you know getting a good night’s sleep is key to living a wellness lifestyle?

Not just one night but night after night after night, having a good sleep routine is vital to living healthy.

I often think of it like rebooting our computers. You know how over time without a reboot or defrag your computer will begin to respond slower and slower until eventually it doesn’t even want to start up?

It’s the same way with humans. During healthy sleep, our brains and bodies get a reboot.

Good sleep can boost your immune system. It helps prevent weight gain. Good sleep can strengthen your heart, increase productivity, and improve your memory. That’s just the beginning.

A good night’s sleep has good affects on every system in your body.

It’s THAT important.

So, are you ready to invest in yourself and getting a good night’s sleep?

I am over halfway into the first kit and both my partner and I are sleeping better. Even he has noticed a difference and he’s only sleeping in the room with the diffuser going. Plus sleeping next to me after I slather on sleep enhancing oils, lol. He calls me his built in diffuser.

The oils you get in your kits are safe, natural, potent, and very effective. There are no negative side effects. You can operate heavy equipment and drive while under the influence of these oils.

doTERRA was founded because of the desire to supply the purest, most potent oils for our health and wellness.

I am living proof that the oils work.

You deserve the best because you are the best.

Sweet dreams friend.

Trouble falling asleep

Am I the only one that has trouble falling asleep?

Let me tell you about blue light and blue light blocking glasses.

The sun emits blue light. It’s what helps you feel energized and keeps you productive in the daylight hours.

When the sun goes down, so does the blue light. As your brain registers the darkness, it releases melatonin – a hormone that regulates sleep – making it easy to fall asleep and to stay there.

In modern day society, we are constantly reaching for our cell phones, Ipads, or some kind of electronic device which emit blue light.

Do you use an electronic device at night? If so, you are artificially stimulating your brain to believe it’s daylight and you should be alert.

If you are like me, most of your entertainment is on a device – hello farm games, hee hee.

And if you are like me, you play games, catch up with friends, or watch videos at night on a device emitting artificial blue light.

Enter blue light blocking glasses.

These things are amazing at helping you sleep better!

The first night I used them I fell right to sleep. That never happens.

The second night, not only did I fall right to sleep but I had a pleasant dream too.

Wearing these glasses is such an easy fix to help with sleep problems. No medication needed. Safe for all ages.

Will you give them a try?
