While we haven’t talked about our lives outside of Exercise with Extra Fries much, we both have incredibly busy schedules, juggling our blog and school / work. To manage stress and to make the most of our times, we love to use essential oils from Saje Wellness.
Here’s how we both use them and fit them into our daily lives.
Monday-Friday, I wake up at 6:40 am and the first thing I do is post our Instagram photo and I spend about 30 minutes liking and commenting on other people’s accounts. After, I usually rush to my morning workout with a pre-workout in my hand.
After my workout and post-workout smoothie, my day always varies. Besides running Exercise with Extra Fries with Grace, I have my own short term rental business and I work with a restaurant in Downtown LA handling their social media and marketing. Sometimes I rush to a meeting (without showering.. gross!) or I have work related errands to run.
This means I’m in my car 24/7 and always dealing with LA traffic. When I’m in my car, I like to diffuse Liquid Sunshine in the Saje Car Scenter Diffuser to keep my road rage in check. I tend to be a bit of an aggressive driver so diffusing an uplifting essential oil blend is a must or things can get ugly.
Since I work from home and also have my own business, I don’t have set work hours and sometimes work really odd hours. When it’s time for bed, I have an extremely difficult time unplugging and unwinding. 30 minutes before bed, I diffuse about 8-10 drops of Tranquility in my Saje Wellness Aromatime Diffuser to help me relax and fall asleep.
I am currently a 2nd year JD/MBA student (I have 2 more years of school after this one!), so I am currently taking my first-year MBA courses while still having to balance any law school activities I have. My law school and my business school are also on two separate campuses on different ends of the city.
Typically, my day starts around 6:30 am. I love to use my Saje Wellness Aromatime Diffuser to wake up with Energy. I feel that it helps me get started on my day.
After texting back and forth with Joanna and catching up on our Instagram and our emails, I check my to-do list and my bullet journal. (Side note: Does anyone want a blog post on how I do my bullet journal?) Then I head to a morning workout.
Afterwards, my days are always different. Because I need to stay on top of my MBA schoolwork, Exercise with Extra Fries duties, law school activities, and personal life, I usually carry everything with me on a regular basis. You should see how many bags I normally carry!
For me, anywhere can become a workspace. Even though I have a great little set-up in my apartment with a standing desk, very often, I need to study at Joanna’s office in between shooting content, at a coffee shop in between appointments, or at the library before class. My absolute favorite essential oil blend is Peppermint Halo. I love to apply it to my hairline in a halo, adding it to my temples if I have a headache or anywhere I feel any soreness or pain. It’s so cooling and soothing. It also really helps me focus better.
I also love that I can easily carry around a mini diffuser I can plug into my laptop via USB. I diffuse either Liquid Sunshine to keep me happy or more Peppermint Halo.
