WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGES ALONG THE WAY?
My biggest challenge has been managing TIME! I know that sounds silly, but being a full-time working momma with two toddlers is NO joke. I try to wear all the hats at once, being a mommy, a business owner, a coach, a wife, a friend, etc., lots of things to juggle, and I try to spread myself over them all. I have recently learned if I don’t prioritize myself, then none of my hats fit right. I'm still learning, but I have come a long way!
As a professional trainer, it's not always easy to find time for myself, but I've started setting aside small moments during the day to take a break and do something that makes me happy, whether that's reading a book, taking a walk, or just having my favorite salad. By doing so, I've found that I'm able to approach the rest of my responsibilities with a clearer and more focused mind, and things tend to run more smoothly overall.
It's still a work in progress, but I'm proud of the gains I've made so far and continue to strive toward finding that balance between all the different aspects of my life.
WHAT THRYV PRODUCT(S) DO YOU USE, AND WHEN DO YOU TAKE YOUR CBD?
For the past year, I have added Thryv’s CBD gummies to my nightly regimen. They have personally helped me wind down after a long day of coaching and helped me sleep! My other favorite product is the CBD salve. Recently I had ACL surgery on my right knee, and the CBD salve has been a huge help in supporting my recovery. I cannot recommend these products enough. Whether you have a high-energy or stressful job, running 24/7 after kiddos, or feel some discomfort, these two products are for you!
I really appreciate that Thryv uses only the highest quality ingredients and that their products are made from premium-grade hemp, free from any harmful chemicals or additives. I have recommended Thryv's CBD products to many of my clients and friends, and I truly believe that they can benefit anyone looking to enhance their overall wellness and improve their quality of life.
WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH CBD BEEN LIKE?
FANTASTIC! I was definitely skeptical and showed little interest when CBD was introduced to me, but after doing my own research and physically feeling better, I am a huge fan.
I've been using CBD for a while now, and I've found that incorporating it into my daily routine has made a significant difference. Whether I'm starting my day with a few drops of CBD oil, enjoying my CBD gummies during the day, or using a topical CBD salve to promote recovery, CBD has become an essential part of my life and daily workout routine.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a natural way to support their health and wellness. I laugh now at how little interest in CBD I've shown at the beginning - it really has what your body and mind need!
No matter if you are a college athlete who's in great shape, a very professional trainer, or just someone willing to lose a few pounds through a daily workout routine or weight training, CBD can be a great addition to your wellness game!
HOW HAS CBD HELPED YOU?
CBD has been a great addition to my wellness regimen. Specifically, the Thryv CBD gummies and salve have both had a positive impact on my overall well-being. Since I started incorporating CBD gummies into my routine, I have noticed a reduction in the frequency and intensity of my stressful episodes. Additionally, the gummies have helped me achieve a deeper, more restful sleep - now I feel more energized throughout the day.
The CBD salve has been a lifesaver in managing the discomfort that I experience in my knee. Without my CBD salve, the recovery process would have been much more challenging!
ANY ADVICE YOU CAN SHARE WITH FELLOW FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS?
Don't stand in your own way. When you believe in something and are passionate about what you do, it will radiate off of you and impact those around you. Remember to dream big & never settle!
