As a mom of two young kids(3 1/2 and almost 2), I rarely have any time to myself. There is always something to do, clean, pick up, wash.. the list goes on. With the kids are getting older and needing more activities to keep them from getting bored and hurting each other, that is another pressure on me to find things for them to do. And life has also been super stressful lately since my side business has really slowed down and we have been extra tight on money. So really there is hardly any "Me Time", unless you count going to the grocery store alone :)
This is where the Cerra™ Journey and Practices come in to play. As a part of the SheSpeaks Program, I was introduced to Cerra Be Aware, Act, Reflect™ products and how they could help me in getting a little time to myself to sit and focus in an otherwise busy and sometimes overwhelming life.
A little about the Cerra™ Journey:
I was sent a great starter kit to aid me in different ways to take a little time and reflect on the various Intentions (Gratitude, Creative Energy, Grounded, Loving Kindness, Courage, Wisdom and Inspiration)
- Three Tea Bags in Grounded, Creative Energy and Gratitude varieties
- Creative Energy Sensory Oil
- Dissolving Notes and Pen
- Sample Sized Lotion
- Gratitude Keepsake Notes
- Cerra™ calling cards you may share with friends and family
- An informative Cerra™ Booklet and Journal
I was also sent a package of the various Sensory Oils as well.
The first thing I tried out was the Sensory Oils. Unfortunately, I am fairly allergic to most scents so I wasn't able to use those to aid in my reflection time. One that I did really like was Gratitude. It was calming and peaceful and really helped me to sit and think about those people in my life who help me and my family get through everyday.
Out of everything that I tried of the products, The Dissolving Notes were by far the best for me. They are tiny little piece of paper that you can write any thought, feeling, stress, whatever is on your mind and possibly weighing you down, then put the paper in a bowl of water and watch it dissolve.
As it melted away in the water, it really helped me to take the time to think about the issue and slowly release it off my mind. No, it did not take away all my stress and worries, but for that moment I could just let the stress lift off my shoulders and mind.
You can learn more about Cerra™ by visiting the SheSpeaks Program or the Cerra™ Website. You don't necessarily have to have the products to facilitate your journey with Cerra™ and taking some time for yourself. Browse the website and learn ways to focus for even just a few minutes in the chaos of life :)
I received products to facilitate in this review in conjunction with SheSpeaks and Cerra™, but all opinions are 100% mine.
