Mastering Your Mind: A Clear & Positive Mindset

As the end of 2019 approaches, it’s time to wrap up the year and put yourself in a position to make 2020 your best year yet. As we begin to look back at our past year, it’s also time to begin setting goals for the next. In order to do this properly, it is important to practice positive thinking. By mastering a positive mindset, you can then find mental clarity you need to see what you truly want to achieve and how you can do it.

Something that is not commonly known, is that when the brain is in a positive state it is able to reach a higher level of creativity. This higher state of creativity can facilitate goal setting for the new year with mindful reflection of the past. By creatively and positively reflecting on the past, you allow your brain to see more possibilities than with that of a negative mindset. A negative mindset can often leave the brain feeling threatened and, in turn, close you off to new opportunities.

The power of positive thinking can go much further than just reflecting and thinking forward. By combining positive thinking with daily affirmations, you can set the tone for what you WILL achieve. The difference between resolutions and affirmations can sometimes be as simple as reframing your mindset from “I’ll try” and “possibly” to “I will” and “I am.” This small change can put you in the mindset that reaching your goal(s) is something that will happen. Even when times get hard and it seems like you won’t achieve your goals, you have to tell yourself you will and keep going!

Fostering a new, exciting future is within your reach. Not only is 2020 a new year, but it’s a whole new decade. Now is a chance for you to turn the page and write the rest of your story. By starting this year on the right foot and with a strong mindset, you can make it your best year yet!

Mastering Your Mind: Self-Care & The Holidays

The holidays are a time for family, giving, and happiness, but often it can be stressful. Whether it’s from the hustle and bustle of travel, planning, packed stores, or even just seeing as many people as possible, it can quickly get to you. More common than not during this time of year, we put an emphasis on taking care of others, in turn, leaving little time for ourselves. Make sure you don’t forget about yourself this holiday season with some of the self-care tips below.

Reflect/Practice Gratitude

Taking some time to stop and reflect can help you see what you’re truly grateful for. Practicing gratitude allows you to see the positives even though you may be going through tough times. Simply by changing your perspective, you can see the world in a different light. Reflecting on everything can help you focus on what’s important in your life and shift your energy towards those things. Find more ways to practice kindness and gratitude this holiday season here.

Make ME Time

Engaging in activities that you enjoy can help you create rituals and feel grounded while the world is moving quickly around you. Whether it’s exercise, yoga, meditation, or another hobby you enjoy, this should be time for you to unwind and find your center. Learn more about the importance of daily rituals and how they help you focus on your goals and wellness here.

Nutrition/Physical health
Similar to making “me” time, carving out time to prioritize your health can help you find balance. Ensuring that you get adequate sleep and find healthy food options can help you create a plan so that you can enjoy holiday foods and treats.

 

Remember that the holidays are a time that should focus on the good things in life and being surrounded by the ones you love. While these are just a few options to help you reduce stress, find what works for you and enjoy this holiday season!

Practicing Kindness and Gratitude This Holiday Season

The holidays are a time full of travel, giving, and being surrounded by the ones you love. This season is also a great time to celebrate the many good things that have taken place over the past year. Even though you may have experienced disappointment or setbacks through life’s ups and downs, you still have many things to be thankful for. By reframing our experiences with gratitude, we can experience an emotional state with healing effects. With the holidays being a time of sharing, it’s important that you share this gratitude with those around you so that they too can experience what you’re feeling.

While the holiday season is centered around happiness and joy, sometimes it can be the cause of stress. With this in mind, it is important to remember that everyone could use a little kindness in their day. Here are some ways that you can practice gratitude this holiday season.

Help out

Whether it’s helping clear the plates at dinner, going to the store for the missing ingredient, or cleaning before company arrives, helping out can help relieve some stress for others. It can also help you feel better about making sure you’re doing your part and helping others when they need it.

Be mindful

Similar to helping out is being mindful. A lot of times we tend to put ourselves first and only think about “me.” The holidays are a perfect time to start thinking about others and how you can be mindful of those around you. Whether that’s lending an ear, not overloading someone with tasks, or going the extra mile, your mindfulness will be appreciated and can help others find joy this season.

Volunteer & practice random acts of kindness

Thinking of others and those who may be less fortunate is a great start to spreading joy and gratitude. Volunteering at local organizations can have a greater impact than you may think. One hour of your time can mean a world of difference for an individual or family during this time. Like volunteering, practicing random acts of kindness can go a long way. This can be anything from giving a few dollars to someone in need, paying it forward while getting food, or even just helping carry something for a neighbor.

No matter how big or small the act may be, gratitude can go a long way this season. So, take the extra minute to help someone in need and see how much of an impact it can have.

A Life Rooted in Wellness: Daily Rituals

From work, to kids, to travel, each and every day can be challenging and different. Despite this, there are a few things that should always remain the same. Your daily rituals.

A ritual is defined as an act or series of acts regularly repeated in a set precise manner. For many of us, a ritual is the perfect way to carve out some much needed “me” time. Whether that be at the beginning or end of our day, a ritual is something that helps us remain grounded in our ever-changing lives.

Every day we carry out rituals and routines. With rituals, we are fully focused and perform them with intent. Routines on the other hand, can be performed without much thought. What’s great, is that rituals and routines vary from person to person. We are defined as individuals by how we carry out our daily lives. From sunup to sundown, rituals are the key to starting and ending your day with intent.

Starting every day on the right foot with a morning ritual is a great way to lay the foundation for a successful and fulfilling day. Some common rituals include reading, yoga, meditation, catching up on news, and creating to-do lists, along with many other activities. The best part about rituals is that they mean something different to everyone. And it is these differences that define who we are.

Sometimes, just getting the day started can be difficult. If you’re like many of us, it might take you some time to wake up in the morning. If this is true, consider adding GO for energy into your morning ritual. GO provides a natural, plant-based alternative to coffee that will help you find the focused energy you need to start your day.

Just as you begin your day, end your day with the same intent. Whether it’s making sure that you take care of your body or incorporating a wellness regime to your ritual, having a game plan is crucial. Long days, stress, and strenuous physical activity can leave your body feeling worn out and searching for relief. Adding REWIND into your nightly ritual can help relieve those occasional aches and pains that can come from sore muscles and joints. Whether it’s completing a fitness routine, finishing a chapter in a book, or just simply cooking dinner; you can switch the gears from a hectic day to one of relaxation.

Taking steps to ensure you get a great night’s sleep is one of the best ways to take care of yourself. Your nightly ritual should always encompass a bedtime routine to take advantage of every minute of sleep. Sleep is one of the most commonly overlooked forms of self-care, yet it is the most important. Isn’t it time you found a great way to catch those well-earned Z’s? STOP for sleeping  is the perfect addition to your bedtime ritual. Composed of ingredients traditionally used in Ayurveda for sweet serenity and great night’s sleep, STOP is a delight to the senses and a natural way to end your day.

As the world speeds around us, our rituals are what keep us grounded and focused in our goals and wellness. Keeping consistent rituals will help you find clarity and direction, while also giving you something to look forward to each and every day.

A Life Rooted in Wellness: Sweat Tested

Living an active lifestyle has more benefits than you may think. Outside of the obvious cardiovascular benefits that being active can have, there’s also the emotional health impact it can have. Physical experience is a great way to practice emotional health and with October being National Emotional Awareness Month, we wanted to shine some light on this important part of one’s overall wellness.

Physical wellness can carry a different meaning from person to person and while it may be different for everyone, the same school of thought still applies; engaging in regular exercise can serve as a great catalyst for improved health. The idea that wellness differs between individuals is also prevalent in Ayurvedic practices. Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old philosophy of holistic wellness meaning the “science of life.” This traditional Indian practice believes in harnessing the powers of natural remedies to help balance your mind, body, and emotions. This is just one of the reasons why we, here at The Root of It All™, keep Ayurveda at the heart of everything we do.

As we move through our day-to-day lives, we run into life’s challenges. No matter how big or small they are, they can have an impact on us and take a toll on our emotional well-being. This is where living an active lifestyle or having a go-to physical activity can help you release your worries. Whether it’s going on a run, heading to the gym, or sweating it out in a great yoga session, being physically active is a great way to leave your problems at the door and focus on you and your well-being. These activities not only allow you to improve physically they also give you a chance to clear your mind and find some inner peace while you enjoy some “me” time.

With this in mind, our team of expert scientists and product developers set out to create the best remedies to address everyday conditions that may hold you back from living an active lifestyle. These conditions can range from sleeplessness and stress to lack of energy and soreness. Whether you’re looking to slow things down to relax for yoga or need an extra boost of energy for that tough workout, we have remedies that will be there when you need them. You can learn more about our remedies and how they utilize Ayurveda to help with everyday conditions here .

No matter who you are, The Root of It All™ is made for you, me, and everyone in between. So, whether you’re a professional, grandparent, millennial, artist, craftsman, or someone just looking for a natural option, isn’t it time you discovered a life rooted in wellness?

Serenity Centered

Serenity. It’s a feeling we all know and have come to cherish. As we find moments of bliss, we feel at ease, we feel whole. Sometimes these moments come by the masses and sometimes they seem to be few and far between. Life happens fast and without realizing it, you can forget to take time for yourself. Taking a second to decompress and let your worries melt away is exactly what your “me” time is for.

The Root of It All™ knows that when you get back to your root and discover wellness, you find serenity. That’s the reasoning behind our holistic approach to developing all-natural, Ayurvedic remedies. We have found that combining the powers of Ayurvedic ingredients with varying ratios of THC and CBD, we can create condition specific, powerful plant-based remedies. While we do create products for everyday conditions, this feature is going to focus on two remedies that help you destress and slow things down.

As we approach National CBD Day, we only saw it fit to highlight our CBD rich remedy, EASE for stress relief. EASE combines a 10:1 ratio of CBD to THC with an Ayurvedic blend of lemongrass, bergamot, and ylang ylang. These ingredients are known to calm restlessness, promote comfort, and quiet the noise. So, the next time you’re looking to leave your stress behind reach for EASE, the all-natural, plant-based option.

Now you may not always be looking for stress relief, sometimes all you want to do is slow things down. Whether it’s at the end of a long day or just before a yoga session, you may be trying to find that blissful state of serenity. Our Ayurvedic remedy SLOW for calming is made to help you do just that! With an Ayurvedic blend of basil, sweet fennel, and orange, SLOW is bursting with culinary flavors and is a delight to the senses. It also combines this blend with a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. These ingredients are all known to encourage calm, soothing comfort and relaxation. Find your calm the natural way and try SLOW today!

Be Kind to Yourself

Be Kind To Yourself

You may have started to notice a theme here at The Root of It All™; we are big on taking care of oneself. Whichever day you deem dedicated to YOU, the message remains the same. Taking care of yourself and doing what makes you happy is what we here at The Root of It All™ are passionate about.

Self-care comes in many forms and is going to mean different things for everyone, but it is so important to carve out that time to be your best self! We all have long days, and sometimes those days turn into longer weeks. How we deal with life’s ups and downs is going to be unique to each of us. The Root of It All™ is on a quest to help others discover a life rooted in wellness no matter what life throws at you and we do so by creating products formulated for everyday conditions. Whether you’re feeling stressed, run down, or those nagging joints and muscles are giving you trouble, The Root of It All™ is here for you.

Look we get it; everyday life comes with stress and sometimes those stresses can pile up and feel like a burden. That’s where our new product EASE for stress relief comes in handy (only available in California). EASE utilizes a 10:1 ratio of CBD to THC to help you quiet the noise. This essential oil blend is formulated with a powerful Ayurvedic blend of lemongrass, bergamot, and ylang ylang. These ingredients are all known to calm restlessness, promote comfort and a quiet mind. So, if you are looking to release your worries, leave you stress behind and escape to a state of tranquility with EASE.

Sometimes all you need is a mountain, snow, and something to shred with to get back to your natural self. Whether you’re skiing, boarding, hiking or just being active, making time to enjoy what you love doing most is a priority we can all agree on. Self-care can come in many forms, however, at times an active type of self-care can leave your body sore and aching. Look no further than REWIND for restoration, our essential ointment designed to ensure fast, localized relief every time. REWIND boasts a soothing Ayurvedic blend of turmeric, black pepper, and cloves. We selected each of these ingredients for their restorative and relieving properties. So, when those lingering pains pop back up, reach for the natural option and restore your body with REWIND.

No matter what self-care means to you, no matter how you go about it, we can all agree that making some ME time is important to our well-being. So, whether it’s going to a yoga class, jamming out on your guitar, carving up the slopes, or just binging a new show, The Root of It All™ is here to help take you through every pace of your day. And as always, don’t forget that we’re social! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! Tag us in a post and use #ForMe to let us know how you’re working on self care!
