A Few of My Favorite Things
I’m popping in today to share a little extra inspiration in case you’re looking for some last minute gift ideas (or need some inspiration for how to spend some holiday cash ).
I’ve been focused on living more mindfully and intentionally for many years now, so I thought I’d put together a list of some of my personal favorites in case they inspire you. Some of these are free resources and some are paid, but my hope is you’ll find some inspiration here to bring more mindfulness into your day-to-day life and into the lives of your loved ones.
My personal favorite meditation app is Insight Timer. They do have a paid version, but I’ve been using the free version for years now. Calm is another wonderful meditation app that offers a free 7 day trial.
Oracle Cards or Positivity Cards
The Moon Deck is my personal favorite oracle deck and the one I use in my own practice and when I offer intuitive oracle readings. I also love Louise Hay’s Power Thought Cards. There are so many options out there, you really can’t go wrong.
Journals have been some of my most treasured gifts over the years. I love The Five Minute Journal. It invites us to journal for just a few moments in the morning and a few moments in the evening. It offers space for gratitude, setting intentions and affirmations, reflection, and more. Another favorite is The Happiness Project One-Sentence Journal. It offers a 5-year record of single sentences so you can remember and reflect on your past while honoring the present. Both of these journals offer daily inspirational quotes as well.
I love Persona because, as the name suggests, they offer highly personalized recommendations based on your lifestyle and wellness goals. Start by taking a simple 5-minute assessment, check out your recommendations, add any additional supplements you’re interested in, and that’s it. It renews monthly, so I never have to worry about running out and my supplements come in handy packets so I don’t have to open a bunch of different pill bottles every day. They also offer 50% off your first month, which is a great deal! You can even talk to a nutritionist for free and their customer service is awesome!
As you may know, I live in a little cabin in the woods about half an hour from my favorite fitness and yoga studios. It’s often easier for me to workout from the comfort of my home than to drive to a class. Besides jogging the backroads and taking online classes with my favorite local teachers, I also love and use Beachbody On Demand and DownDog. My favorite YouTube channel is Yoga with Adrienne and she offers a free 30-day yoga journey every January. It’s always a great experience. Gift cards to your favorite local studios also make an amazing gift.
For those unfamiliar with Annmarie Skin Care, they handcraft their skin care products using organic and wildcrafted ingredients. These high-quality ingredients, including different herbs and plant extracts, are slowly steeped at low temperatures to create unique, energized botanical infusions. Also non-GMO, MadeSafe, and Leaping Bunny Certified, their amazing products are as close to nature as you can get.
I found out about them through Kris Carr when I was looking for natural, eco-friendly, and effective skin care products and I’ve been hooked ever since. I love them so much I’m actually an affiliate with them.
That’s why I’m excited to share that for a limited time during the holiday season, you can try all their bestsellers for less than $20.
This Clean Beauty Trial is a great way to check them out! It’s heavily discounted with 44% OFF and comes with a FREE Deluxe Gift for a limited time—available only for our community. Learn more here: https://partners.annmariegiann…
I’ve been using essential oils in my daily routine for years and I truly cannot imagine going a day without them. My favorite places to shop for high-quality essential oils are Edens Garden, Young Living, and doTERRA.
If you’re local to the Harrisonburg, VA area, here are some of my favorite places to shop:
- Great.Full Goods
- Friendly City Food Co-op
- The Lady Jane
- The Yellow Button
- New Creation
- Agora Downtown Market
I highly encourage you to check them out if you get a chance.
Gift cards are a nice way to allow your loved one to buy something they’ll truly enjoy from a particular place. It’s a win-win because they get to buy something they truly want and you get the satisfaction of knowing you gifted well.
Many of the options I shared above offer gift cards and, if you didn’t know, I also offer gift cards in any amount for my holistic coaching services and intuitive oracle readings.
The Gift of Wellness
As a holistic life and health coach, I know that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness and the mind, body, and spirit are all interconnected. True wellness is about more than just getting in shape and eating healthy food, it’s about cultivating mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. I’m a multi-passionate wellness devotee and my offerings reflect my ever-curious spirit and never-ending desire to continue learning and improving.
Some of the ways I can support you or your loved one in achieving your wellness goals include transitioning to a more plant-based way of living; cultivating a more balanced lifestyle in mind, body, and spirit; mindfulness and meditation; ditching dieting for good and tapping into the power of mindful and intuitive eating; building resilience and learning to manage and reduce stress; designing a life of passion and purpose; stopping self-sabotage, reprogramming your mind, and stopping negative thinking, building sustainable healthy habits, and more.
If you’d like to learn more, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
