Meet Colleen Riddle

 
Like many of my friends, I was raised with a “Clorox” mentality, where the thinking is that it’s not clean unless your lungs burn. I was crazy for everything scented, from candles to personal care products.  If it smelled clean I “automatically” assumed it was in fact “clean” (and good for you). 

I remember bonding with my mom as she would show me how to apply makeup and all the wonderful smelling body sprays and lotions. She even showed me her “secret” for oily skin (baby powder). Little did I know that baby (talcum) powder would later be disclosed as massively toxic.

When life becomes stressful, it can be easy to forget the importance of taking care of yourself. 

Does this sound familiar? 

As busy women, we have so many responsibilities that it’s easy to neglect our own personal needs. And while it’s hard to prioritize self-care activities, improving your well-being is one of the best ways to support overall health, including physical, mental and emotional health.

Colleen Riddle, wellness professional,  and  Paulina Aguilar, life and business coach, will provide individual sessions with each person.

Your ticket includes wine, snacks, dermaplaning, sessions with each professional. $40 (cash, or Venmo accepted)

Space is extremely  limited!  Reserve by replying to this link. Reach out with any questions.

What Are Essential Oils?

What is CBD?

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is a one of the main natural cannabinoids in the industrial hemp plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that attach to the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors in your body and brain. Hemp has more than 113 known cannabinoids in it. The receptors are inside the membranes of your cells in your body. Research has identified two cannabinoid receptors. CB-1 is found primarily in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB-2 is mainly in the immune system and related areas.

How does CBD work?

CBD interfaces with your body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS coordinates systems in the body like hunger, emotions, pain, recall, parts of the nervous system, etc. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are all over the body, including connective tissue, organs, brain, glands, and immune cells. The cannabinoid system performs different tasks depending on the tissue, but in all cases, homeostasis is the desired outcome.

Homeostasis refers to a system being in a stable or balanced state. It is the body's mechanism to maintain a steady internal environment, which it does by always monitoring and adjusting based on current conditions. For example, when we become stressed, our adrenal glands release cortisol. This is commonly known as the "fight or flight" hormone, which lets us react quickly in a dangerous situation.

Is CBD Safe?

CBD is considered "generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile" in a 2018 World Health Organization report. Getting your CBD from a safe, trusted company with high quality controls is very important; many CBD companies do not have adequate quality control and don't know where their product is sourced. We have one of the best quality control systems in the industry.

CBD versus THC

CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, which is also in the cannabis plant) are different. Sometimes, the two are confused. CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause the euphoric side effects THC is known for. This means CBD products can be used without concern that THC would cause a reaction.

CBD and THC both bind to the CB-2 receptor while interfacing with the CB-1 receptors differently. THC's molecular composition allows it to bond directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed, the reaction creates brain signals that trigger psychoactive effects of THC. CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors according to research. Its presence can invalidate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, canceling side effects caused by THC.

Are hemp & marijuana the same?

No, they are different. Both plants are in the same Cannabis plant family, but hemp is completely different from marijuana in how it works, how it's grown, and how it's used.

Will CBD get me "high"?

No. CBD does not have euphoric side effects.

7 ways to set yourself up for big wins...

7 ways to set yourself up for big wins...
A few years ago, whenever I got stressed and too busy I used to do this thing that blows my mind now. 

I used to be in the “ignore it and push through it” club. By that I mean, I’d take the stress/overwork hit, but just keep going.

I’d tell myself: “I’ll deal with this later.” 

And I was super proud of myself – because you know what? I could take it. 

But even though I was able to handle the actual work … I didn’t always manage the stress.

Well … guess what?

Eventually, one way or another, you end up having to deal with it. 

You can end up getting sick, having headaches, getting injured, or feeling burned out.

If you’re also in the “push through it” club … you may want to consider jumping over into the “self-care club” instead … because that’s where the real power is.

Now, this doesn’t mean you have a pass on your responsibilities … it just means you’re listening to your body and managing your stress levels along the way. 

Here are 7 things you can do to help you not only stay on track… but do it in a more sustainable way:

  • Take a breath.
    When you’re stressed/busy, taking just a few minutes for controlled, mindful breathing can help your body’s stress control system do its job. I use essential oils paired with deep breathing and it's like magic.
  • Move your body.
    This is one of the best stress-relievers out there! Exercise works on a hormonal level to help you feel calmer, less stressed, and more relaxed.
  • Get a new perspective.
    Studies show that spending time in nature (just a few minutes) can help cut stress.
  • Upgrade your nutrition & hydration.
    Stress can make you crave high-calorie foods that contain a LOT of sugar and fat. This can make you feel tired, blah, and sluggish. Upgrade your choices to include nutrient-dense whole foods that help you feel better.  Adding a shot of 
    NingXia Red can help support blood sugar levels as well as provide massive antioxidants.
  • Make time for recovery (aka sleep).
    When you sleep, your body is helping you recover from yesterday so you can be rejuvenated to tackle tomorrow. Make sure to go to bed early enough so you can get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
  • Build a support network.
    Having people around you (in-person or virtually) who hold you accountable is everything! (Our FB group can be a good place to start: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wellnesswithcolleen/ )
  • Feed your mind.
    Make sure you get a steady diet of positive input – whether it’s listening to inspiring podcasts and audiobooks, reading self-development books, or learning about fitness & wellness … it can keep you motivated and moving forward. Also try meditating for at least 5 minutes a day.
It’s the little things you do every day that will have the biggest impact on your energy, resilience, fitness, and health! I'd love to hear if you do any of these tips OR if you are going to try a specific one.

MORE isn't always BETTER!

MORE isn't always BETTER!
Controversy alert! I’m going to say something you won’t hear from a lot of personal trainers.

I hope it gets you fired up – especially if you’ve been struggling. 

I know you’re busy juggling a ton of day-to-day responsibilities … 

And at the same time, your wellness goals are really important to you.

After a while, you can start to feel like a failure if you aren’t “crushing it” every day.

In our culture, we’re all about GO BIG or GO HOME … NO PAIN/NO GAIN … ALL-IN, 24/7.

Guess what? 

That mindset doesn’t work over the long run. Or maybe ever.

It just leads to feeling burned out, exhausted, and like you have failed (again).

What if instead there was a SMARTER, more EFFICIENT way?

Well, I’m here to tell you there is. 

It’s called the MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE.

In a nutshell, that’s doing as little as possible to get the most results.

It’s also the most sustainable way to create REAL CHANGE in your fitness and health!

(Note: this doesn’t mean you can’t go through short “go hard or go home” periods where you are super focused. But these periods should be balanced with less intense periods, too.)

Here’s a sample of what the least effective dose can look like:

  • Fewer workouts, focused on what really moves you forward
  • Shorter, more targeted workouts
  • Or fewer AND shorter well-designed workouts
  • Concentrating on the 3-4 healthy habits with the biggest payoffs
  • Knowing what convenience foods are actually good for you vs trying to make every meal from scratch.
There are SO MANY REASONS and SEASONS to try the “minimum effective dose” method:

  • When you’re feeling stressed
  • When you have a lot of responsibilities
  • When you don’t have a lot of time
  • When you’re just starting out … or coming back after a layoff
  • When you’ve just completed a big event (like a marathon)
  • When you’re coming back after an illness or injury
What exactly the “minimum dose” looks like can depend on a lot of variables – your gender, age, health/fitness status, likes and dislikes, available time, and on and on.

—> The key is, it shouldn’t feel like a burden or a drain … and it should deliver real, quantifiable results.

It can take some experimentation, but it’s definitely worth it!

Working with a qualified professional can help you find that sweet spot – so you can still get everything you need done in a day … AND get amazing results in your fitness/wellness.
