It takes minutes- not hours

It takes minutes- not hours

Practicing gratitude not only makes you feel better mentally, but it can also improve your physical health.  I highly suggest starting a gratitude journal because it is easy, inexpensive, and can be done in just a few minutes each day.  There are a lot of scientifically proven benefits to journaling, like reducing depression, the longevity of life, and improving relationships.

There is no right or wrong way to get started.  The most important thing is that you do start.  I thought I would offer up a few prompts to help get your creative juices flowing.

First things.

Grab any journal or notebook, (here is what I am using) then choose your time and place.

Journal Cover Photo

Start small with a goal to show up for 3-5 minutes and list as many things as possible that come to mind. I give you permission to write sloppy and unorganized (likewise neat and tidy if that brings you more joy).

It was when I was told no one would bother to read my journal and all I had to do was show up, the pressure came off.  Since I was doing it for me and not a grade, it began to be something I felt good and encouraged to do, because I got something out of it.  I hope that happens for you.

It will take time and consistency for this to be a habit.  You may find you are motivated for a few days or weeks, then a distraction will come and you will miss your gratitude time.  My experience is that later that day or after a few days, you will feel “OFF” or  “DIFFERENT”.  It is like when you forget deodorant, you don’t know how important it is until the stink or stinkin’ thinkin’ sets in.

Pick One Of These Gratitude Journal Prompts

Pick one of these prompts and just write.  Don’t think, just write.  Whatever comes to your mind, write it.  I do try to keep my journal positive and write to myself as if I am writing to my best friend.  You wouldn’t talk terribly to a loved one or BFF, so don’t talk to yourself that way either. If I get a negative thought about myself (we all do) stop and reframe ti to the positive with the TRUTH.

I put these into categories.  That way, you can journal on a specific topic that inspires you.

General Journal Prompts.

  1. Look around you, what 4 things do you see that you are grateful for?
  2. What is one accomplishment you’re grateful you achieved?
  3. Scroll through your phone pictures.  Choose the first one that makes you smile.  Write about that memory.
  4. Think of 4 people you are grateful for and why.
  5. List your perfect day.
  6. What skill do you have that you are really grateful?
  7. Write a letter to your 100 year old self.  What do you want to remember about your life and accomplishments?
  8. Choose a song that makes you happy, play it, list why it makes you happy.
  9. Think of a happy childhood memory, the one that just popped in your head when you read childhood memory, write about that.
  10. What small thing can you do today to make it a better day? (coffee, walk, exercise class, write a thank you letter, pay someone a compliment, etc.)
  11. Write a letter to yourself 10 years ago.  What is a lesson you learned and are grateful for and wish you had learned sooner?
  12. Interview yourself.  Ask yourself where you want to be in 2 years.  How can you make this happen

FOOD PEACE PROMPTS

  1. Describe what food peace means to you.
  2. Write your feelings when you finally have food peace.
  3. What would be a small win today toward food peace.
  4. What is holding you back from making the changes to have this? What is in the way?
  5. Write a letter to yourself as though you already had it.
  6. What is your reason for wanting food peace? What is your motivator?
  7. What is one experience that you can’t wait to do when you have food peace?

I hope these gratitude journal prompts allow you to get started with journaling so that you can live a more positive life.  What is your favorite prompt?

With so many to choose from, I can’t wait to hear your favorite.

All dressed up

Let’s Get All Dressed Up to Stay Home

Let’s Get All Dressed Up to Stay Home

Day 16, here we are!

It is time to train the strongest muscle, and possibly your worst enemy, your mind.  It is time to train it well.

Here are my Top Tips for working from home. I have been doing these for over 10 years.

Pre Covid-19, I did plan little outings, networking events, and lunch meetings to feel less isolated.  Well, that has changed, and we are no longer doing those things. I am sure most of you are accustomed to a corporate structure to anticipate each day.  Since most offices have directed employees to work from home, I thought I would give a few tips that I have learned over the years.

#Transparent

Get Dressed to Stay Home-

 

This one is SO important, especially now.  There are psychological changes that happen when you get dressed. You perform better when you are dressed for success.  It is mindset…your mindset. Getting dressed is a winning mindset.

#Transparent-2

Make The Bed

 

It doesn’t matter if you have a big house, little house, or apartment, this is a discipline that teaches  consistency and proves that you can do something over and over, even if you don’t want to. It prevents afternoon naps, and sets the tone for  accomplishing more tasks, and then another, and another….Plus, it just looks better.

#Transparent-3

Set a Routine

 

A routine brings a sense of normalcy.  There is nothing normal about this time. You will have to be disciplined to do this.  Going to bed at the same time, getting up on time, treating the work week like a work week (not one month Netflix holiday).  A morning routine is probably the most important one to protect or establish. I start the day with my coffee, list my gratitude, intentions, and tasks for the day….Errrrrrday.

#Transparent-4

What about the Kids? And the Husband? What if THEY Are Home?

 

This is especially distracing.  There is working in shifts, at a designated time, in rooms away from the common areas. We take BREAKS together, then return to our “corners”  (We are lucky with space. I work upstairs, DKC works in the basement, and we give the rest of the humans the main floor). Since there is no playdate 1:1 time, Do not beat yourself up over extra screen time.  This is the great equalizer, we are all (kids included) going to struggle and have to back track and re-learn. We are all in the same boat.

#Transparent-5

There Needs to be a Space For You

 

I started out at the dining room table, until it didn’t make sense anymore.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a desk or home office, just work from the same space each day, and designate it as you “work space”.  It won’t take long for your housemates to know that is your spot.

6

Don’t Just Sit…

 

Brendon Buchard (High Performance Habits) suggests setting a timer for 50 minutes.  Every 50 minutes get up, stretch, get a drink, close your eyes, breathe. This 3-5 minute break can do more for your productivity and sanity than anything.  There are times that I take conference calls and wash down floors, dust, fold laundry…even do squats or situps. Be creative and keep moving throughout the day.

7

Get Fresh

 

If you are able to, go outside for a walk and some fresh air.  Plan a daily walk, drive, or open the windows and let in the breeze.

 

8

 

Turn it On & Turn it Off

 

This is the hard one, have a start and stop time.  That said, you may have to make it look different depending on the season of life you are in.  When our kids were little, I would work an hour, and turn it off. I would wait for relief, DKC, and when he got home and could take over, I would turn it on again.  I had “Office hours’ that I tried to stick to. Now, I set work hours with breaks. I could find myself with my laptop at 10 or 11 at night sometimes. I set a start and end time to the work day. I do this with social media (for the most part) I turn my phone in at 8 o’clock.

9

Dial Up the Communication

 

Monday morning team meetings, 5:00 after hour cocktail hours, whatever…Zoom and Facetime are technology gifts for staying connected with coworkers and loved ones.  Out of sight, out of mind can make social distancing feel even more isolating. Be sure you are on “top of mind” and being extra communicative.

Why I Swapped to Clean Crafted Wines

Why I Swapped to Clean Crafted Wines

Clean-crafted wine has been my thing for the last year since I discovered Scout and Cellar!  I know good things and get a kick out of sharing it with others so I knew that I had to share with you all these wines that we have been enjoying this summer.

I have been more than a little excited about these wines.  You might be wondering what “clean-crafted” really means and if it is possible for a wine to grow and then produced without all the extra sugar, chemicals & additives that make us feel headaches, puffiness, and stomachs the next day.

I am going to give you all the details and I want to answer some of the frequently asked questions that I get about the clean wine.  I will also share some of the bottles that are our favorites!

Since my career is helping women get weight loss results, and the majority of mass-produced wines have added sugar when I learned that these were organic and virtually ZERO net carbs, I was compelled.  The trick was, I am fussy about wine.  I didn’t like any of the organic sugar-free options available with other companies. I wasn’t hopeful about this line either. It is hard to find DELICIOUS clean wine.

To my surprise, this has exceeded my expectations.  What we (DKC included) found is that the wine is really good.  You won’t be left with wine headaches and migraines.  Imagine enjoying your wine without day after wine headaches and upset stomachs.

Here is why I am loving Scout & Cellar wines:

  • Naturally grown with NO synthetic pesticides (good grapes don’t need them)
  • ZERO grams of sugar
  • Low sulfites (most <50 ppm all must have <100 ppm.  As a reference point, the FDA allows up to 350  ppm:-)
  • Tended by actual farmers- not mass-produced by industrial agricultural methods
  • Sustainable, organic and/or biodynamic farming methods
  • ZERO added chemicals
  • Independently lab tested

Scout & Cellar Founder Sarah Shadonix has dedicated her life to taking the headaches out of great wine, literally and figuratively!

Sarah struggled with day-after headaches while studying to become a sommelier.  Rather than give up, she learned it was something in the wines, did her research, spoke with renowned naturopaths and medical professionals, and consulted with vintners.

She learned that there were 300 pesticides and 250 other chemical additives permeating almost all mass-produced wine.  Her mission is to discover and deliver a cleaner, healthier option to everyone.

The image above outlines the standards that allow for a wine to be considered “clean-crafted”.  Scout & Cellar doesn’t have its own vineyard.  Instead, they source from all over the world, creating and bottling wildly delicious wines with an authentic sense of plane and working directly with growers and farmers who embody the same clean-crafted commitment.

Sarah walks the vineyards, visits the cellars, and shares meals with the farmers.  The end result is a delicious wine that is better all-around- not just taste but for our bodies and our planet.

Q: Can I shop wine a la carte or do I need a subscription?

A: One of the things that I love most about Scout & Cellar is that you can shop individual bottles a la carte whenever you like.  No subscription or wine club necessary.

That said, if a  wine club is what you are looking for, they have something called Scout Circle.  You choose how many bottles you want, how often you receive them, and whether you want mostly white, reds, or a mix.

Signing up for Scout Circle is a great way to get free shipping on your wine PLUS try out circle exclusive wines that are not otherwise available.

My subscription is for 12 bottles of a mix of whites and reds, bi-monthly ( every other month ).  There is no commitment and no penalty for canceling if you decide you no longer want the subscription.

In addition to a Scout Circle membership, I can still shop a la carte whenever I feel like it.  I like having both.  It is a fun surprise to see which exclusive bottles come that we get to try.

Sign up for Scout Circle HERE

Q: I prefer sweet wines.  Are Scout and Cellar wines all dry or do they have sweet options?

A: Since none of the wine contains added sugar, they are on the drier side.  That said, there are varying amounts of residual sugar in each bottle, giving you an idea of which ones are sweeter vibes.

 

Q: Do they ship to all 50 states?

A: At this time, Scout and Cellar is unable to ship to the following states: Utah, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Delaware, Kentucky, and Arkansas.  They do not ship internationally.

 

Q: Where are the wines sourced?

A: From all over the world!  Scout and Cellar produces wines from the grapes grown in the best and still-being-discovered wine regions from Napa Valley to Willamette Valley to Mendoza, Argentina, to Provence, Span, and France to La Manca….and many places in between.

 

Q:  How do the verify that the wine is Clean-Crafted?

A: It’s a multi-part process that involves tasting for deliciousness and a sense of place, working with the farmer to understand their practices in the vineyard, verifying reports detailing the viticulture and vinification process behind each wine and conducting at least 3 distinct lab tests down to the parts per billion to confirm that there are no synthetic pesticides or chemicals present.  (Also that there is less than 100ppm of total SO2).

 

Q: What are sulfites?

A: Sulfites are naturally occurring antioxidant and antibacterial compounds found in grapes and are utilized to protect the wine from oxygen until it reaches your glass.  Because of the slow-crafted, intentional way that Scout & Cellar vibes are made, they require very little sulfur additions to remain stable.

 

Q: Which bottles are your favorite?

Become a Scout  & Cellar Consultant- Join My Team!

I became a Scout & Cellar Consultant because I fell in love with the wine. I love that they support a healthier lifestyle and the clean wine complements the #one80eating lifestyle.

I also love that as a consultant you can earn money on your own purchases!  Clean-crafted wine delivered to my doorstep plus extra $?  Sign me up!  If you’re interested in joining my team, email me at suz@carpenterone80.com for more information.
