Take Care Of Yourself & My Acupuncture Journey

Take care of yourself.

This is one of my favorite spots to sit because it means in a few minutes I will enter a space that is just for me. A space that takes care of my mind and body with the help of my incredible acupuncturist Brooke @vetiveracupuncture. I have been going to acupuncture off and on for 6 years mostly when I was ready to get one of my babies out or to help them flip but over the last 15 months it has been a part of my (semi) regular routine. I have gone for support during my pregnancy with Ingrid to help her flip and to help encourage her to join us Earth side, as part of my early postpartum days to support healing, for the pain and numbness experienced in my shoulder/arm due to breastfeeding and now for support as I work to balance my hormones and gain control over my anxieties.

All I can say is make time for things that support you whether you are a mother or not. I am working at it and each postpartum period I have to re-learn this and put it back into action. Sometimes it happens easily and other times (like currently) it takes time and a constant reminder that it is important. That I am important. That my mental and physical health is important.

If someone hasn’t told you today or you’re not feeling it you should know that you’re important too.

10 Things About Me

I shared this post over on my Instagram but I thought why not share this here as well. It’s been awhile since I have shared an about me and thought why not? 

1 | Superpower: Cooking dinner with hungry children at my feet and sharing tips on on how to balance health and wellness while also being a mama. Oh and because mamahood isn’t easy I like to share the good with struggles.

2 | Can’t Live Without: a notebook and a pen, an eye mask for sleeping and pasta.

3 | Believe In: the positive effects of nature while also struggling to believe in myself.

4 | mama to: three incredible little people who teach me something new everyday.

5 | wife to: a rock climbing, computer nerd and incredible man.

6 | health coach: who feels incredible privilege to support women on their journey to optimal health and wellness.

7 | blogger: with two different blogs that are sometimes hard to balance these days.

8| about to turn 33 years old but absolutely hates celebrating her birthday (I don’t mind getting older though).

9 | thinking about how/where I can make time for more self-care.

10 | grew up on the east coast (Vermont) and while I love PDX I’m always an East Coast girl at heart.
