People have DM’d me and said “you seem to handle everything so well you seem so positive and happy” HA guys my anxiety has been off the charts this week and I’ve had zero money I am working overtime to keep it together. So if you feelin like you struggle 24/7 SAME GIRL, SAME. But you got this I’m gonna eat some in n out and try and get everything done I have to do. You can do it!
What drew me to this business was when I saw a friends post inviting people to join her group. She explained how these in home workouts and drinking a superfood shake changed her life for the better. I had just had my daughter Faithe 3 months earlier and thought this could help me feel better mentally, physically, and spiritually, so I gave her my email. After I joined her group I started to become more confident and more excited about life! I decided to join her team! I wanted to help people feel the way I felt. . . It went good for a while, but I started getting on the scale too often and got discouraged when the pounds weren't dropping. What I didn't realize was that the more important result was how you felt about yourself on the inside. It isn't about the number on the scale. It's how you feel in your clothes, in your own skin. I sunk back into my depression because I wasn't taking care of myself. I wasn't eating healthy. I wasn't working out. I wasn't drinking my superfoods shake, which balanced every thing out. I didn't crave any junk food and I had more energy. I got back up on my feet again in May. I started working in the business again and I started taking care of myself again. . My WHY for joining this business is to show other women that it IS possible to get in shape even after you have had children. My WHY is to help other women to become healthy and to feel good in their own skin! My WHY is my family. I want to show my children that it is good to work out and make healthy choices everyday. I also want them to have a mom who works hard. I want to be a good example. Lastly, my WHY is to help other people and my family gain financial freedom! America is full of people who are obese and who dont feel good in their own skin, but America is also full of people who are tied down with loads of debt. . .

We were incredibly honored yesterday to host The Dave Andreychuk Foundation at Gracepoint. Dave and his wife, Sue, are passionate about supporting mental health services in our community; we are excited to have their voice in the fight to end the stigma associated with mental illness. THANK YOU to their Foundation Executive Director Arlynn Haarer for helping organize the visit. Special thank you as well to our organizational leadership, Foundation Board members, and staff who helped host the Andreychuk's on campus and attended the check presentation!
I recently read an article on @themightysite about what people keep in their Mental Health Crisis Kits. I try to stay away from personal posts, but thought I’d share some of the things I have in mine! This stress relief lotion is amazing! I love to use it after a hot shower, and it really helps soothes me. I love crazy Aaron’s thinking putty. I fidget sometimes, and playing with it/pulling it apart gives me something to do with my hands. And they come in really cool colors! As you can see, I am obsessed with mind/calm/glitter jars. I have 2 in my bedroom, plus the glitter stick. I have a small travel calm jar/stick that I keep in my every day bag, and one I keep in the bag I take to work. They are what works best (for me), so I always have one with me! Play doh has the same idea as the silly putty. I keep my journal with me usually, to let out my thoughts and feelings. My planner also stays with me. Planning stuff out (with pretty colored & sparkly pens!) makes me feel so accomplished and organized and relaxed. Coloring is another big one to use as distraction. You can find adult coloring books almost anywhere now! I’ve seen them at the dollar store! So they are extremely budget friendly. Not pictured: bath bombs/bubbles are so great. The smells and fun colors are so uplifting! and essential oils! I pick an oil that helps with mood/mental health/anxiety and add a couple of drops to a hot shower, and I have an oil diffuser. But there are so many other ways to use them. I hope some of these helped and inspired you. What do YOU keep in your Mental Health Crisis Kit?
