Motherhood is such a beautiful journey! Let’s make it feel like that and get you unstuck from mom burnout and experiencing joy in your motherhood. I want to help you nourish your mind, body, soul, and home so you can live life as a Wholehearted mom! My family has been trying to shop local, buy from responsible companies and live a minimal life…. on that note… here are a few of our favourite thing.

I also want you to know I don’t post things here lightly. These are products I love and/or truly believe they can serve you in your journey. I also try to post from Canadian companies and/or companies that are socially responsible and give back!

Auria Glass Diffuser

I love this product for 2 reasons. 1) I love diffusers! I have a diffuser in every main room in my house. 2) This one is from Indigo which is a Canadian company. They also make great nightlights in kids’ rooms.

My favourite oils to diffuse are Onguard (Christmas smells) and lemon (smells clean and fresh)

Vitruvi Diffuser

Our beautifully-crafted stone diffuser helps you diffuse essential oils throughout your home, while doubling as a stunningly simple piece of decor. (ps. Vitruvi is a Canadian company)

I love the look of a stone one for the living or bedroom. I love diffusers! I have a diffuser in every main room in my house. My favourites to diffuse are Onguard (Christmas smells) and lemon (smells clean and fresh)

Wellness Weighted Blanket

 This weighted blanket is expertly crafted to provide the soothing and assuring comfort of a hug. Engineered to be approximately 10% of your body weight, it delivers balanced pressure from evenly distributed glass beads for the ultimate in serenity. 

Weighted blankets are amazing for those who struggle with anxiety!

Rocky Mountain Soap Co.

My husband and I are both addicted to this lotion – we always have it on hand! Smells so fresh. My husband also uses it all summer because of the lemongrass he thinks it helps with mosquitoes. (Canadian, natural)

Oneka Shower Gel

So my husband may have just bought a box (I mean a literal box!) of Oneka shower gel and bubble bath for us and our kids. (Canadian, vegan, natural)

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Castile Liquid Soap

This soap can be used in every area of your home. SO many options you just have to check out! Rose, Lavender or unscented is perfect for your bath or shower. I use Peppermint or Tea Tree to clean my house, especially my floors. (Fairtrade, vegan, organic & natural)

Hey mamas – I have been using BeachBody on Demand now for about 3 years and I love it! It’s like Netflix but for workout programs! I used to have a Goodlife membership but after having 2 kids I found I rarely had time to leave the house to make it to the gym. When I discovered Beachbody on Demand my exercise changed. I was now able to put the kids to bed and workout from the comfort of my own home! Click here (or the image above) for a free 14 day trial!

The Gifts of Imperfection (Brene Brown)

I love Brene Brown’s work and this book is a great one to get started with! She teaches us how to live a Wholehearted life without shame, anxiety, comparison and with courage, vulnerability, and self-worth.

Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle

This book by Emily and Amelia Nagoski is a game changer. I have not yet read it but it is next on my list after listening to their life-changing podcast episode on Brene Brown’s Podcast. Learn the 7 ways to complete the stress cycle and stop your body from storing it!

The Invisible String (Patrice Karst)

Such a heart warming story. I read this with my kids and students all the time. Great for kids who struggle with loneliness, separation anxiety, or loss of a loved one.

The Deepest Well

Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is brilliant and she has an amazing way of explaining such complicated human systems. I learned so much from this book and her Ted Talk on the stress response system and how trauma affects our brains and bodies.

Drop the Worry Ball

This book is a must for parents! Not only is Alex hilarious but his book is also full of great wisdom. Alex tells us parents to get out of the sandbox and to appreciate community.

Fraiche Food, Full Hearts (Jillian Harris Cookbook)

I may be a bit of a Jillian Harris fan… not only all her products so beautifully designed but she supports good causes and I agree with many of her values. This cookbook has some amazing recipes in it. My favourite are the cheese biscuits.

Matt & Nat Bag (Abbi Med – beet)

I got this bag for my birthday and I am in love with it! Not only is it so beautiful but it is also so spacious and has a laptop holder!
