I have been home from Utah for 2 days now and I am still worn out from it all!
I left the house at 4am on Thursday morning to catch my flight. I have gotten pretty good at flying over the past few years with all of my traveling. I have some Bose Noise Cancelling headphones that drown out all of the airplane noise and I always have an audiobook ready to go and I have a mellow playlist for when I am ready to fall asleep (think ocean waves and harps).
I get into my seat, put my Travel Pillow behind my neck and my headset on and fall right to sleep….often before we even get off the runway. And of course, my essential oils are a great help! StressAway at the beginning of the flight/peppermint at the end and I am in good shape.
Once I landed it was go-go-go for three days. I got to tour the Young Living farm and see how the distillation happens (that was my favorite part!). I met so many amazing people and asked a zillion questions. I love hearing people’s stories and how they have made their Young Living business work for them.
Plus I got a hotel room to myself, which if I am being totally honest, may have been some of my favorite moments. At the end of each day I literally just laid there in the quiet and did nothing, thought nothing, planned nothing, learned nothing. I turned my mind completely off. It’s unlikely that I will have that again for years, so I soaked in every bit of it.
Most of the time I hung out with these two gorgeous ladies…
That picture was taken while we were having lunch at the corporate offices. We were trying to be professional. But most of our pictures looked like this…
We spent hours being transported around on buses so we entertained ourselves by trying to take selfies and telling stories. I laughed so much my sides were sore at the end of each day. They made my trip a million times better than I expected!!!!
On Sunday I flew home and went straight to church for a time of prayer for our country. Even though I was tired from traveling, I didn’t want to miss that after what’s been happening for the past week. It was the perfect ending to a long weekend.
On Monday morning I started my clean eating challenge and it’s going OK so far. I am getting my head around doing the 5 day cleanse next week, so this week I am just sticking to fresh veggies and protein. It’s not too late to join me if you want to clean up your diet and take back your health!
Thankfully I have a couple of quiet-ish weeks ahead before the travel picks up again. I plan to swim with my kids, nap then hang with my kids some more.
Have a wonderful week!
