Tips Tuesday – HOW TO AVOID A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!
How To avoid a Zombie Apocalypse!
First it is important to understand the traits of a Zombie so you can clearly identify them!
- An individual listlessly walking seemingly without destination with a great deal of distraction preventing them from connecting with any focus to anything or anyone
- Individual may be looking down or looking straight ahead without acknowledging anything around them
- Can be observed in a room full of people, at a restaurant however does not communicate with others simply mindlessly looks down at their lap
- Seems to be void of emotion, except occasionally might randomly burst out in a muffled gawfaw prompting others to sometimes ask ‘What’s up?’ usually to know reply from the ‘Zombie’ subject.
- Subjects family no longer recognizes the Subject in question. Communication has almost completely ceased, and intimate contact is rarely enjoyed if at all. Relationships seem to break down due to lack of physical, emotional and psychological connection. This is usually evident in the extreme cases after long periods of exposure to the epidemic strain or ‘Cause’ of the Zombie diagnosis.
- Whole families have been known to be exposed to the disease. This is concerning for many reasons , one of the biggest being that it takes a Strong Member to recognize the danger to the exposure and get treatment for the entire family immediately.
****Now read all of the listed traits above while recognizing the ‘ROOT CAUSE’ is technology, cell phones, laptops, lack of boundaries for work etc.
I thought I’d have a little fun this week with Halloween coming up to share with you what I and many others have been observing for some time…Ok Let me explain what a Zombie Apocalypse is to me!
The Side effects of this epidemic!
We have MAJOR Disconnection to nature because HOURS can go by while on devices the next thing you know there is no time to go outside with our kids and play.
Marriage are breaking down more then ever due to lack of communication, feeling unloved and neglected because spouses are distracted or having emotional affairs online.
Kids are not learning how to communicate effectively due to lack of communication in the home. They are becoming desensitized to the important of emotional connections and meaningful talks with parents and siblings.
Quality morals, values and manners in public are being annihilated because no one uses common sense and respect for others in a public setting.
People DO NOT REALIZE THEY CAN MEET A QUALITY PERSON in PERSON, standing right beside them at a bus stop they could fall in Love with Date and Marry! People are so reliant on social media and dating sites with their heads down staring at their dating site connections the person sitting beside them at a restaurant, or bus seat could be the love of their life, but they don’t know how or have the common sense to start up a conversation?!
It is making people trust people in person less and strangely trust strangers online more??!!
We know less what our kids are doing with snap chat, instagram, facebook, etc the are sending inappropriate pictures and connecting with strangers online.
There are no protective ‘Family’ settings that are broad enough or fast enough to keep up with the garbage and sensitive information our kids are exposed to on line. Many people have voiced concerns with how young kids are getting sex ed in schools, when most kids are exposed to worst with no guidance on line.
THERE IS A CURE!!!!
Be string enough to set boundaries you are comfortable with personally and professionally! Here are some tips!
You are paid for so many hours a week right? IF you are working at home too, add up those hours and then recalculate your earnings: $70,000/ 40 hr week= $33 /wk
If you are working an average of an additional 3 hours per night and maybe 4 hours on the weekend your income just dropped to $22/hr. You are making $11 less per hour cause you are not setting healthy boundaries for your work. Sad thing is Your Family is footing the bill for missed tie with you. Noone ever goes to their grave saying they wish they spent more time working….
So Set healthy boundaries, Maybe you decide going to work earlier gets you more time to get stuff done without missing as much time with family. Or maybe you say 30 mins per night is the most you will do and SET A TIMER to stay accountable!
Delegate more! Everyone is replaceable, don’t get caught up in thinking only YOU can do the work, ask for help, it is healthier for you and others feel good about helping.
Set certain times of the day when family can use devices and then when the time is up commit to spending time doing something together, outside, inside or upside down!
Have a Phone bucket. It’s easy to sit on the couch with the family to watch a movie then look around only to see everyone is also on a device. Encourage focus and decrease over stimulation by having a phone bucket, all devices go in before family time, and stress that they be TURNED OFF! If your Cell phone is also your home phone, There is NO RULE that you MUST PICK UP, let voicemail get it, especially if you are with your family, what message does this send your kids and spouse? They are more important, and if it’s an emergency you can call back and so can they.
Have Family Game night, Movie night, no device night, outdoor activity night. Make it fun and give everyone the chance to pick the activities! As a parent YOU set the tone for the reality and experiences of your family , and if it’s broken, you hold the responsibility but ALSO the keys to fix it. Be strong and set the example.
So let only the Halloween Zombies invade your home this Halloween! Reconnect with your family an friends, you will have a richer life experience for it.

Tips Tuesday- Doing some INNER work for hair, skin and spirit!
Tips Tuesday- Doing some INNER work for hair, skin and spirit!
Well for many people the colder weather and darker afternoons mark a time for hibernation. Avoiding the cold and finding cozy solace indoors is common for most of us. the following ‘tips’ are to make this season a little more positive and less negatively impactful to your hair, skin and spirit.
Find your hair dryer and more static effected this time of year? Try the following regimens and watch how your hair will thank you.
~Do regular deep conditioner treatments, at least once a week
~ Smooth a little styling oil or coconut oil over your hair after styling, carrying Lavender oil in your purse can be used during the day adding smoothness, moisturizing benefits
~ DO NOT wash your hair every day! Get creative, try pony tails or braids and twists to get through days 2 and 3, excessive washing dries the hair and scalp causing breakage and dandruff
~ On your scalp if you get regular dandruff mix up a bit of coconut oil and lavender oil and rub it directly on your scalp then apply a deep conditioner on your ends for a double whammy moisture experience! Leave on for 10-20 minutes then gently rinse with body temperature water.
~ Get a richer moisturizer for your face! Winter is more dying and the wind causes the skin to dry out faster. Using a more moisturizing cream will help, also stay away from foaming cleansers, these tend to be very drying, stick with cream cleansers, like our RVB Holistic Milk cleanser that can also double as a make up remover!
~ Consider adding an oil treatment at night like our RVB essential oil night oil! Your cells rejuvenate more at night while you rest, so maximize their youthful potential while you sleep with an deep penetrating oil moisturizer!
~ Get a facial once a month at least. You skin is in so much need of TLC and it barely gets it! Make sure you get professional care and take advantage of the amazing Facial Friday 20% discount every Friday!
~ Many people find this time of year difficult as less exposure to sunlight and the plethora of holidays can cause a sadness that can seem overwhelming. Many treatments can help relieve the side affects of the overwhelm. Reiki, Shambala, and crystal grid therapy are amazing ways to re-balance energy and increase joy and peace to your energy body.
~ Holistic Life Coaching Treatments help you get to the root of the issue with any obstacle in relationships, career or in issues you are haunted by within you from the past.
~ Get outside anyway! Part of the negative feelings you are experiencing are due to lack of exposure to the sun and clean air that the outdoors supplies. Get outside for at least 30 mins a day for a brisk walk to get the cobwebs out of your head and the Chi back in your body flowing again!
Every Thursday is Therapy Thursday, enjoy 20% off any Holistic and or Energy treatment!
Tips Tuesday – Invest in Yourself, Mind Body Spirit, Committing Religiously to Self Care
How much do you spend on others? Not just with money but time, energy, support? How much are Braces for your kids? Or Sports activities, or on clothes,? What am I getting at here? Is there balance? Do you spend equal amounts of energy(money, time, support) on yourself that you spend on others? Constantly giving depletes your banked energy, and if you do not balance out what you give yourself to what you give others, then you become drained and ineffective in pretty much everything you do. You become short with the kids, uninterested in the relationship with the spouse, too tired to go see friends or even go for a walk. Living your life this way today creates a worst nightmare tomorrow. Living a life of drained energy starves your mind body and spirit of the precious substance that keeps you health, happy and whole. It make you run on fumes and your metal physical and spiritual self become ill, and dysfunction. This leads to Dis-Ease that shortens your life span, preventing you from enjoying retirement, grandchildren or even life moments with your kids like graduations, and weddings. It prevents you from living your life passionately and purposefully. So many people suffer with regret in their last days, wishing they could turn back the clock and make different choices that focused more on peaceful, stress free living, and investing in themselves, which in turn would have given their families and friends more time with them and given the guilt ridden patient more time to live a life full of purpose.
Where do you begin? Take out a sheet of paper, yup right now, I will wait for you……..OK, on one side right all the things you do for others! On the other right all you do for yourself in a day. Is it balanced? Look, I understand not everyday will be perfectly equal, nor should you turn into a stress ball trying! However, awareness is the start! Next, make another list of things you could do for yourself each day that would alleviate stress , cater to your needs and create more balance! Getting up earlier to work out! Check! Prebooking a reiki treatment every two weeks! Check! Pre-booking a one hour a relaxation massage once a month! Check! Going for walks every other day with the family! Check! (Things for yourself can include others, who better then your own family or spouse! This encourages them to prioritize exercise , family time and self care. Boom! Booking a coffee meeting in with a friend shows you care and you can enjoy some adult convo with a positive friend!) Check! Prebook a cut and deep conditioning treatment once every 6 weeks! Check! Sign up for opportunities to learn more about your self care and spirituality! Check! Get the picture! So why ‘Pre-Book’? This keeps you accountable to YOU! Someone has to! it also gives you something positive to look forward to, keeps your energy level constantly replenished and prevents you from being disappointed when you really need it from not being able to get an appointment! Especially around the Holidays!!!!! (Only 10 weeks till Christmas and we are booking up fast EEEK) Bringing a friend creates a feeling of investment and support too! Bring your spouse for a massage with you before a date night in, or out! No reason why your family and friends shouldn’t benefit from this new you, and be encouraged by your actions to improve their lives and health too! All of your relationships will improve, and you will become more effective in everything you do and have more energy doing it!
So my Tip for this Tuesday? Invest in yourself, everyone around you will benefit not just you. No one lies on their death bed wishing they worked more, and spent less time relaxing and enjoying each day with their loved ones. We can help you stay accountable, we are here to support your path to Conscious Self Care!!
Call Today to Pre-Book your balance!
Tips Tuesday – The Beauty of Gratitude!
As Thanks Giving approaches I am motivated to share the Beauty of Gratitude! Needless to say being grateful for what you have should not just be celebrated once a year, but every day! Seems common sense, however we tend to forget this with the distraction of the daily grind. As some of you read this you might be running about with the hustle and bustle of the season, some with glee, others with a sense of duty. Are you dreading the assembly of family members and their baggage wishing you could invite friends that are ‘Family you choose?’ Others yet could be sitting beside the bed of a sick loved on over these Holidays wishing to return to the safe repetition of another ‘Normal’ family gathering. Others still might be sitting wishing to forget this Holiday Season as they do not have family to assemble with.
Feel into this season, embrace your time with your loved ones, biological or not, sharing memories breaking bread together, showing gratitude for your health and wealth, safety and security. Each day as a beautiful start to each day, reflect on your gratitude list, feel the energy that this brings you and carry that into your day. Not only does this bring even more good into your life, it keeps a light, youthful energy about you creating a glow resembling the glow reminiscent of the fountain of youth!
In celebration of Family, Beauty and Holidays , we wish to extend to you a limited promotion! On November 15th form 8:30-2:30 we will be offering 10 lovely ladies a ‘Glamour Day’ of make overs and photo shoots! We will be celebrating our latest addition of a new ‘Greener’ Mineral Make up Line being unveiled at the event! Watch for more info coming soon! For only $70 you will receive a wash and style, Mineral Make up Treatment and photo session, with a complimentary 5×7 picture to remember your experience! This allows you the opportunity to use this as a Christmas Gift, Head Shot or simply a beautiful celebration of you! What better reason to celebrate then that!
We have limited space for this very exciting event, so please call asap to book your session! 519-886-8624
