Declutter Your Life For The Best Fresh Start Ever!!!

neil gaiman

Wrapping up the year every year is a full-fledged month-long endeavor in my life.  But, because it’s also one of the busiest months of my year, I fit in the New Year prep in every way I can so that by the eve of New Years I feel far more ready to start fresh.

Yes, you can make a fresh start any time you want… but there’s something bubbling and bright about New Years Eve and a fresh day to follow.  Plus, this year we head out of a numerological 9 year of 2016 – the year of ending things- and into a numerological 1 year, a true fresh start in every way for everyone.

We’ve also got a New Moon coming in Sagittarius in two days (the 29th of November) that is all about reaching for the stars and acknowleding all you’ve done this year.   That energy will carry is through December and…

oh I love these themes!

Here are some of the feng shui ways I’m preparing- wherever I can schedule in 15 or 30 minutes here and there- for a fresh year. Continue Reading…

10 ways to enrich your microbiome with nature

What is a Microbiome?

Simply put, a microbiome is a community of microbes. Each one of us has at least 100 trillion microbes or bacteria. Our guts alone are home to 500 to 1,000 different bacteria species.

Beneficial microbes break down food and produce vitamins during feed digestion. They coat our skin, protecting us from attacks by harmful microbes.

Essentially, and somewhat profoundly, we are a massive colony of bacteria (about 100 trillion bacteria), and that big ecosystem of bacteria needs to be in harmony in order to flourish.

Now, what does the microbiome regulate?  Pretty much everything.  Mood, focus, immunity, genetic expression, body inflammation (or lack of it), digestion, nutritional assimilation, aging and cell renewal, skin health, organ health…

Yes, the microbiome is THAT important.

As I embark on a season of brewing super-yogurt (with trillions of beneficial bacteria) by the gallons, culturing veggies (*can’t wait to teach you this!) and eating tons of veggies and fruits every day and cultivating new plants and sprouts all over my house, the microbiome is center stage!

If you’ve been troubled with anything from depression and exhaustion to allergies, skin conditions, autoimmune conditions, poor digestion, or any sort of low immune system sluggishness your microbiome can become your best friend in healing! Continue Reading…

believe in the magic of changing your mind

My friend in England raved to me one day about her experiences de-stressing her life and de-cluttering fixated, stuck emotions with something called NLP.

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

It’s a fascinating way to clear the clutter of negative words, triggers and emotions from your mind and your life in the process.   Continue Reading…

minimalisti gift wrapping thats eco friendly!

(minimalisti eco friendly wrapping ideas HERE)

From tree branches to old paper bags, newspapers to old music sheets, torn up old shirts and pits of old stationary, there are so many eco-friendly, recyclable ways to wrapy your gifts… but first, you need to find them!

While I give experiences as often as possible as gifts, the best gift giving is often selecting the perfect things that people will use and love and actually do need (!) and that takes a bit of searching at times to zero in on selective awesomeness.

This year, Inspired Home asked me to round up favorite items for many different needs, all that I have a personal deep interest in…so I’m pretty excited about these round-ups!!!

Holiday Entertaining Gift Guide  … because this is fun times, and these are epic hostess gifts!

Gifts for the Well-Groomed Men   (the shaving soap is a big must!)

Wellness Enthusiast Gifts  … bring with a juice or a big finger of ginger to your favorite health foodies!

Pet Lovers Gifts (& some homemade puppy cake is always a fun addition!)

Frequent Flyer gifts (these are game changing!) 

Bath Lovers Gifts (ummmm… or could be bath obsessed gifts!)  + you can add a big box of Baking Soda along with details of my Glow Bath 🙂

Book Lovers Gifts … even better when you find a few vintage books or a little Amazon gift card to add into the mix!

Enjoy the holidays!!! And always give to give, all the time, not just this end of year holiday season!

xoxo Dana

clear clutter in your whole life

“I truly believe that every person is a divine creator. Independent of your race, gender, culture, social status, education, religious beliefs, or even past mistakes, there is a power within each of us that is common to every human being and we are all connected to it. This invisible consciousness is the quantum field expressing itself in all things. It is both personal and, at the same time, universal. It is the giver of life.” ~ Joe Dispenza

Pretty powerful stuff, and there’s lots of scientific proof to support this big statement.

We are able to consciously create our days and revolutionize our minds and re-write way that our habits are wired into our brains completely. Totally.  Fully.  Excitedly!

It doesn’t need to take long, it doesn’t need to be a struggle and it will reflect out everywhere in the world around you.

Our whole outer world is a reflection of our inner world and our thoughts, words, beliefs and actions.  Today, I’m excited to share some inspiration to start de-cluttering your mind and dramatically supercharging your life!  Continue Reading…

awesome aromatherapy

Scent is one of our most complex senses. Scents trigger memories, affect our moods, and even affect our physical state and our energy itself.

It amazes me that it’s taken so long for aromatherapy to become more accessible outside of “healing” circles and health food shops since the science behind the power of scent is so profound.

To start with some aromatherapy, get some fresh flowres, try putting a drop of lavender oil on your pillow, rose oil on your wrists or get a simple essential oil spay that you can tote around with you and spritz it in your office, your car, your home… everywhere!  These are simple ways to see the power of scent in your life.

Today, you can read more of my favorite (and beautiful) diffusers, tips and tricks to bring aromatherapy everywhere with you HERE on Inspired Home!

basil for beauty and feng shui energy clearing

Decluttering your life of heaviness, stuckness and bad vibes is vital… and that detox includes your relationships and communication!

If you’ve been in a strained relationship or have some toxic friendship energy in your life, you know that it blocks and weighs down life as much as heaps of papers or trash looming… and that stress is the opposite of abundance.

Basil is an herb used since ancient times to cleanse life of misunderstandings and enhance communication, opening life up to more prosperity and flow!

Plus, basil is ultra-beautifying, especially for your hair.

It’s helpful in treating scalp itchiness, flaking, dryness of the scalp and it exfoliates your scalp. Basil also helps with hair growth, increasing circulation to your hair follicles, nourishing them to encourage healthier hair!

You can try this one as a bath (I do it during New Moons often as a bath) but I love it as a shower rinse, the final thing I do before I step out of the shower and into the day…!

Enjoy this one— it’s both a beauty treat and an abundant energy clearing all-in-one!

Clear that space and make room for the new! And don’t miss the two weeks of free videos to clean up and supercharge your New Year right HERE!

xoxo Dana
