Can you believe it's already August?!

Like resolutions time in January, August can be a wonderful time to embrace new beginnings.  As schedules shift to include the fall school schedules, sports and activities, it's an opportunity to decide what habits might need a change.   Whether its moving to an earlier bedtime, adding in a daily exercise routine, or starting the day with a probiotic, the natural change in our schedules is a great time to make a shift!

The changes don't need to be big to make a huge impact.  I had a boss once who used to always say "little hinges swing big doors". One tiny change could be just the thing.  Several years ago I made the choice to start small and begin swapping just one toxic product in our home for something that was healthier.  Young Living made this process so easy for us.  I would find ways to make the new product work within our budget (often it would actually help us to save money).  Before long, I realized that I was no longer dealing with daily headaches!  The little shift had added up to a major health change for me.  

Others have experienced similar changes - healthier hormones, energy levels, sleep, focus, emotions, body weight and more from choosing to make one small shift.  

I pray that this August you make one new healthy shift, and that the effect is as miraculous as mine has been!

Read on for ideas for simple ways to make a shift!

We would love to guide you on a journey of restorative sleep throughout the month of August so you can work, handle back to school schedules, prepare for the holidays, and do all the things you dream of doing from a rested state.
Then, in September, we'll be guiding you through a process of concentrated nourishment so that you can fill that rested body with energy.
