Heavenly Hand Cream + Blissful Body Butter c/o: Coastal Salt + Soul

Confession, I am a super anxious person.  My mind is always working and thinking about the “what ifs” and “what happens when”, and it makes it really hard for me to sit back and enjoy the moment sometimes.  To make matters worse, ever since having Addison the everyday chaos of dealing with a growing, energetic toddler sometimes gets the best of me and over the last few months I have realized that I really need to work on taking a deep breath and try to relax.  Easier said than done right?

One thing that I have found has really worked is making my morning routine as mellow and stress free as possible.  Obviously, we all have our mornings where we feel like nothing is going as planned or we are scrambling to get dressed and out the door, but all and all I feel like my day is better when I can be a better mom and  when I get up a few minutes earlier , pour a hot cup of coffee and just take a few minutes for me.  Included in my  new morning “me time” are these amazing smelling Coastal Salt + Soul body products. Among my new essentials are their Blushing Peony body butter and their Mediterranean Citrus hand cream. They also have a selection of scented candles and I think this scent will be perfectly in our new guest bathroom.

This whole idea may sound really silly and you might be thinking “how could this possibly help with stress or anxiety?”, but finding a way to just slow down a little and take some time to think about all the good things you have going  on has really helped me.
