RINGLY Smart Bracelet, Rainbow Moonstone Activity Tracker – GIVEAWAY

RINGLY ACTIVITY TRACKER GIVEAWAY

I created this content in partnership with RINGLY. All endorsements, images and words shared are my own and through a personalized review of my experience with the product. In collaboration for this giveaway I did receive product prior to creating this content. I do this because I genuinely only recommend, endorse and giveaway products I love, feel connected to, and personally use myself. I appreciate you, and want to thank you for supporting me through this site by giving you the chance to win something awesome! The giveaway entry instructions are at the end of this post.

Your eyes do not fail you, you are in fact looking at a gorgeous “smart” bracelet that will track your steps and send you personalized notifications from your phone! When I first heard about RINGLY I instantly got excited about the technology but I truly fell in love with the design. I appreciate that their rings and bracelets both have a beautiful aesthetic, but even more so that they also have significance. Each gemstone that they use has different purpose and meaning.  For me, looking to invest in anything especially jewelry it has to be meaningful or significant in some way and in fact this makes me want to wear it more. 

There are tons of activity trackers out there, whether you use your phone, a Fitbit, an Apple Watch, a Polar, etc there are loads of fantastic options. However there is not a tracker that is so inconspicuous and gorgeous as RINGLY. It is functional styled jewelry and I adore that it has purpose. For me, I wouldn’t mind wearing a Fitbit, but personally I wouldn’t love wearing one either. As a wellness coach I feel like it make sense for me to wear a Fitbit, but it’s not my personal style. With my RINGLY bracelet I love wearing it and half of the time I forget that it’s actually working for me. I get compliments on it all the time, and when I tell people it’s wearable technology they are shocked, because you could literally never guess by looking at it.  RINGLY has transformed wearable technology into something of beauty and tremendous design quality.

A feature I love is being able to get notifications for texts, phone calls, calendar and any personalized apps that I choose. Personally, I only use the phone calls and texts because that’s the most important to me. I’ll admit I was hesitant at first, to even use them because I worried that I’d feel more attached to my phone, which is pretty much the last thing I want. However, having worn this over time I realized it’s made me less attached to my phone. I’ll get notified of a text but wont necessarily worry about answering it right away. Or if I expect to hear from someone it is nice knowing RINGLY will tell me rather than keeping my ringer on and checking my phone over again to see if I’ve heard back. It’s actually been liberating from my phone. I don’t have to worry about carrying it around with me every where and especially when I am in nature and truly want to disconnect completely. This has felt so nice! It’s important to know, you don’t have to set any notifications so if you don’t want them to be on, you can turn them off. I do this when I am doing yoga or meditating and don’t want to be interrupted.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

RINGLY connects to your phone via Bluetooth and tracks your steps, miles and your estimated total calorie expenditures. It’s really awesome to be able to see at the end of the day (or any time during) what my activity is looking like, and depending on my schedule that varies day to day.  My routine mostly involves doing yoga most every day and some weight training a few days a week and working with clients while at my standing desk. For me, tracking my steps is insightful to make sure I’m not super sedentary during my work day, but I’m not using it as a means to make sure I get in a certain amount of exercise. I think of it as supplemental movement to my normal exercise routine. And it’s a fantastic way to encourage varied movement during the day!

WHY I LOVE IT

I love being able to wear it during yoga and feel connected to the rainbow moonstone which encourages the feminine energy, harmony and a deeper connection to the self. The healing elements of this stone are significant because it can allow you to deepen your spirituality and embrace your own personal power as a woman. It’s incredible what a piece of technology can do, but I believe strongly that connectedness to the heart of yourself is some of the most important work you can do. 

For me, every time I look at the rainbow moonstone I feel that connection, I am reminded of the diving feminine energy within.  I am delighted that piece of jewelry can have that significance for me, and it’s bonus is that it’s capable of all this other incredible technology! Not to mention, it is stunning! I have really enjoyed the reminder it gives me and the peace that flows in with that gentle encouragement to myself.

The Gift of Presence

The Gifts Of Presence

 

I walked into my room and paused, completely still. My bed is half unmade, half covered in pillows and Acme’s asleep in his usual spot, near the window, by the salt lamp set on the low setting. “I love my bedroom,” I whispered to myself. I love the simplicity, the ease it brings me every time I walk in and the instant I lay my head down I feel at rest. I thought, how rare it is that we stop to appreciate what we have. Truly, when we are taken aback just by our own contentedness and joy with the simplest of moments. Think, when was the last time you felt utter presence in an every day moment? This gift of presence allows you to solidify you in a place and time, to truly stamp your memory with every sensory sensation.

Savory “Grits” & Soft Boiled Egg – The Perfect Paleo Spring Brunch

 

 

In the springtime I crave fresh, simple and beautiful food. It’s all about colors, textures and the experience of eating the food, just as much as it is about the food’s flavor. This perfect Paleo spring brunch is ideal for the coming months of fresh simple produce and warmer sunny days. I love these savory “grits” because they are so light comparatively to their corn inspiration.  I grew up eating grits coming from a southern family and to me they are the epitome of comfort. They take brunch to level that really allows it to be breakfast and lunch, in my opinion. But we all know the “not so secret”, that these aren’t made with corn, but instead cauliflower.

Green Goddess Sauce

Green Goddess Sauce

This green goddess sauce gets it’s name because it is fantastic on everything. You can’t go wrong with adding this sauce to any protein, soups, even grain-free breads or thinning into a dressing on everything!!

Not only is it absolutely to die for, but it is a powerhouse of pungent and medicinal herbs that help the body detox and eliminate. The combination of garlic, parsley and cilantro enhances all of these together to help aid the body in it’s natural process of detoxing the body, cleansing the blood and restoring the digestive systems into balance. I am talking food that nourishes on deep and resonate levels. It just so happens that it makes the palette and brain just as happy as the liver and gallbladder!

The Key Component To Self-Care

The Key Component to Self-Care

Last weekend I took a last minute trip down to Portland from Seattle. A friend of mine from college just moved there and I was due for a little getaway exploration. The months of January and February have been full to the brim for me with work, and other personal life engagements. I knew I was reaching a point where I just needed to be away from the possibility of working, because truly, with my work I never really “leave the office” or “log off”. I have to make that a distinct and intentional choice and during busier periods that is increasingly harder to do especially since I love everything that I do!

 

So getting away just came at an opportune time. I needed the time to reconnect with my friend but also to just be. I needed to feel the sideways rain drizzling on my face as we walked along Cannon Beach. I needed to be immersed in the joy of seeing the haystacks for the first time. I needed to relish in the glory of a spectacular rainbow, being in the right place at the right time. To let me mind solely focus on how to get across the water canals that made sand pools along the beach and to contemplate how these giant haystacks are created out in the water. I needed to let my spirit be free and not thinking of anything outside of BEING.

What to do When Things Happen That Are Out of Your Control

What To Do When things Happen That are Out of Your Control
The other week was a bit of a train wreck for me. It seemed like everything was fighting against me. One minute I’d be really on in the universal groove and then wham the next thing I knew I was flat on my ass.

One day I spent an hour walking around the city in the rain thinking I must have forgotten where I’d parked my car. I mean surely I must have forgotten, only to find out it had been towed. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I mean, I’ve never even been pulled over for speeding before.

Four Ingredient Fudge (Paleo)

Four Ingredient Fudge

There nothing quite like chocolate and raspberries when it comes to a dessert. Am I right? I’ve gotten to the point where sweets really aren’t a huge part of my life, but having something that satisfies that craving once and a while is so nice! That’s why I love this four ingredient fudge.

I’ve been making this “fudge” forever now but never posted it. It’s one of those “it’s so simple you don’t need a recipe” kind of recipes. But then again that’s pretty much how I cook across the board. You’ll know this is especially if you have my ebook Mind & Body Balancing.

How Affirmations Helped Me Heal

How Affirmations Helped Me Heal

In the past decade affirmations have become more mainstream. The use of words or phrases to help change your mental outlook has gained a lot of public notice and support in helping people. Truthfully, affirmations are ancient traditions. Spoken word therapy has been around for centuries and it’s helped people and communities across the globe. They can be traced back to ancient eastern religions, and indigenous tribes. Widely known, mantras are phrases, poems or sayings chanted over and over again during meditation. The word  “mantra” Sanskrit and is translated to read “that which protects (tra) the mind (man).”  They have been used for spiritual connection to the self and the divine. In so many ways they have been used to free one’s mind of all other thoughts.

 

 

Most recently you can find people touting the benefits of affirmations on wellness sites like Well + Good, Mind Body Green and from leaders in the New Age movement like Gabby Bernstein and Deepak Chopra. This wave of self-help ideology has created a movement and momentum behind using therapies such as affirmations in channeling and changing your thought process.

 

I’d say that my way of coming to affirmations was fairly nontraditional as I wasn’t necessarily seeking a more spiritual connection to the Universe, God, the Divine, whatever you choose to call it. My introduction to their power was during a time of deep desire for physical healing of my body.

Living Well With An Autoimmune Disease

living well with an autoimmune disease

After living with an autoimmune disease for over a decade I have experienced both living well, and not so well during that time. I’ve had periods of flares, years of remission and years of soul-growth and healing. Each of your personal experiences in living well with a chronic illness will have parallels to mine and yet also be different. There are a few key factors to living well with an autoimmune disease that have profound impacts on daily life. They are spiritual, mental and physical aspects that when all working together help me to live the best life possible.

Reclaiming Exercise For Every Body

 

Reclaiming exercise for every body

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. As I continue to dive deeper into my relationship with myself, with my personal yoga practice and healthy living this has been coming up a lot for me recently. And even more so with the clients I see. So often, people ask me what is the best type of exercise to get the body they want, the results they desire, or the energy they’re craving. I am discouraged by this questions a lot. Why? I don’t actually have the answer. Or at least, I thought I didn’t. But now, I’ve decided the answer is reclaiming exercise for every body.

 

The source of my frustration comes from the societal expectation that we have to move our body only because we want it to look a certain way, instead of actually enjoying the way it moves. Believe me, I have been guilty of this plenty. Which is why I feel comfortable calling some bullshit on it.
