Feeling tense and worn out is almost inevitable if you don't spend enough time relaxing.
Without taking time out for yourself, the stress gradually builds up to a breaking point.
Instead of getting frazzled and run-down, have a break and seek a few quick, tried and true pick-me-ups.
I’ve been trying these myself with amazing results 😀
#1 - Get outside in nature more often - The benefits of spending more time outside in nature have now been proven by science, so after a long day go for a nice stroll down at the nearest park or forest!
#2 - Be more mindful - This is really the art of allowing thoughts to arise without reacting to them. Just simply sit in a comfy position, breathe and focus on your breath. Whenever a thought pops up, just observe, don’t react.
#3 - Give more - This may sound ambiguous but trust me on this. When you give a gift, a favor, your time, your attention...whatever it is, you will feel a deep sense of gratitude and happiness.

Do you remember as a kid when you used to chase butterflies all over your garden?
You thought they were the prettiest and most magical little things.
Maybe you used to (attempt to) draw them, or even eat them!
And as you grew older your fascination deepened as you learned that the beautiful butterfly started off as an ugly little caterpillar!
What an amazing transformation 😀
It’s in this process that the meaning of the butterfly was formed in our culture and specifically jewelry.
The butterfly represents a symbol of transformation because of its impressive metamorphosis--from caterpillar to chrysalis and ultimately, the butterfly.
Butterflies also symbolize spring, a celebratory time of year, and embody the beauty of symmetry, pattern, color, and shape.
Maybe you haven’t connected the dots up until now...
But what an amazing thing to be reminded of!
If you want to spread the meaning of the butterfly or just simply be reminded of it...go get your hands on our stunning 3-Piece Butterfly Charm Bracelet.
