My hairdresser could not believe how much new growth there was on my head!! In fact, I couldn’t believe it myself. A girlfriend told me about this stuff and her hair was a regrowing like crazy. I swear I thought she had bangs, her hair looked amazing! So, of course, I bought it and started using it each morning and night. A few weeks later it was noticeably WORKING! Check it out for yourself.

I had the chance to hear Simon Sinek at a Leadership Summit last year. He’s smart, articulate and calmingly entertaining. This book makes you think about “why” we do/make/create anything and how those people and companies with strong “Why’s” do so much better than those without. Example after example of stories of companies that flourish with strong “why’s” like Apple and those that did not like Tevo. To be successful in your company, personal business and gain employee loyalty requires a strong “why”. People buy and follow because “why” you do what you do. Excellent book.

Americans take life at such an extremely fast pace. This isn’t truly realized until you visit another country and experience life in another culture. The pace slows down, the tension fades away and you finally ease in and relax. You might even whisper, “Life is so much slower here. No one is in a hurry.” For those control type A’s it may take a few days to completely relax. Unplug from your computer and phone, stop reaching for the social media, emails, and calendar that usually take up your time and life.
In our world, we have to meet deadlines, take care of our homes and family plus be leaders in our jobs. We have to schedule every hour of our day in Outlook. We are forced to schedule the time to read, work out, meditate, relax, or else we will never find time for it. The one thing we count on is the fast pace our minds have been able to keep up, make decisions and stay in the game. BUT let me warn you. There needs to be an extended time to relax and unplug at least once a year, if not more. I know, I know, most of us have not taken a REAL vacation in years.
As we watch our children grow up it will hit us in the face that we need to make more memories together.
You never think back on your year and reminisce about weeks of great meetings and stressful nights. You remember that trip with the kids over spring break. How you enjoyed watching your children laugh and experience new things. Before we know it life is going to slip by, we will be left regretting all those times we should have taken to experience what’s really important.
Hitting that deadline, being in the game and on top is always a thrill and we live for the win. However, if keep up this pace without making time for family and self-care, in the end, it will be for nothing. The only reason we are here is to make memories, it’s the only thing we will have to take with us.
Make the most of them.
Remember you are at your best when you practice self-care and take time to rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. There have been studies that prove vacations lead to longer careers, more productive time spent at work and better attitudes in stressful situations. Take time daily to relax and meditate. The Miracle Morning – Rise and Shine – The Miracle Morning – Hal Elrod is a great place to start. Then plan your next vacation. Save up for a week with your family. Most of us are NOT planners but start adulting and plan your next vacation NOW.
When you get home from relaxing, take a day to get ready for Monday, with renewed energy, brighter attitudes, and new ideas. Then think about your next adventure. Find a photo of it and put it on your vision broad. It will give you something to look forward to, a new goal to achieve and wonderful new memories to make.

Hope & Faith Fitness Tips for the Books, Beauty and Business Babes!
We all tend to over complicate this health and fitness thing and with the internet, we are inundated with info on what to do and what not do. Here are my 10 best tips for the babes looking to improve their health: 1. Start small! You didn’t get to your current state of health overnight and you’re not going to reach your ultimate goal overnight either. Baby steps are THE way to go to achieve lasting results.
2. Sleep is paramount. Aim for at least 7 hours.
3. Water is your best friend. Don’t stress about the ounces consumed. If your urine is clear to pale yellow you should be good.
4. Try to eat as many whole foods as possible.
5. Do something you enjoy!
6. Practice moderation, not deprivation.
7. Schedule your workouts. Look for pockets of time you can squeeze in a 10 minute session. It makes a difference!
8. Plan your day to the best of your ability but be able to roll with changes too.
9. Write down your goals/intentions with pen and paper (not your phone!).
10. Finally, give yourself some grace. A healthy lifestyle is about balance, not all or nothing. You WILL have great days and not so great days. It’s OKAY!! You pick right back up and keep going. ️
The fierce competition to be the best, perfect at everything. Women need to be beautiful, successful, smart, head of the household, money maker…you name it, we own it. We need to get out of our own heads and into a space of encouraging others. NO one is uniquely you! Fill each other up. Focus on your ONE top goal, tell someone about it. Then start to take baby steps to get there. Find an encouraging tribe along the way! We hope you reach all your goals!
This was an easy book to listen to as Reese reads it herself. She is about as southern as you get. Her book Whiskey in a Teacup reminds me of the value of traditions, family time, manners and teaching our children how to have conversations and respect for each other. You will find yourself reflecting on your own childhood traditions and, if you are like me, sad that you don’t do more.
She offers family games, recipes, and stories that her southern family experienced in their community. Simple things like the art of getting dressed!!! Workout clothes are for working out and sweating…..then you change! I love this! You will enjoy this book…plus some great southern recipes!
This book will change your mornings/day for the better. Even if you think you have a pretty good morning routine, this book will level up your purpose for waking up every day. You will learn about your level ten life.
Your Day will become SO much more productive, inspired and goal-centered. Your mind will start to focus on your truth/goals and you be motivated to change the world. One day at a time. The trick is to stay accountable to yourself for 30 days.
It’s easy to get excited and start the first week. Then the weekend comes and you want to relax and sleep in, the next day you don’t complete your morning routine and then before you know it, it’s back to normal. You keep doing what you have done.
STOP!! Set your alarm. Use the steps and make a plan. A friend told me about this meditation app. I have not found anything this great until now. It’s wonderful for sleep, meditation, and focus. The sounds, voices, and background are soothing and create a relaxed state in minutes. The name is Insight Timer. I listen to a lot of meditation resources. THIS IS AMAZING. It’s a free download on iTunes….here’s a picture.
