Vegan Hot Chocolate and a Moment with JORD

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Taking a moment of self care is so important and my unique watch made by JORD allows me to do just that in style while enjoying some vegan hot chocolate.

Over the last two weeks life for me has been a little crazy. My son’s football season is coming to an end, my day job is ending its fiscal year, and my blog life has become extremely busy…now I am not complaining about any of this because being busy is not necessarily a bad thing. However when life gets busy and crazy that is the time to really pay close attention and practice self care as often as possible.

I know…I know…when life gets busy this is not always easy to do, but I am telling you that it will make a huge difference in your day and help you to achieve everything that is on your to do list. Seriously you cannot be at your best if you are overwhelmed and stressed out and I am guilty as well of not pouring into myself as much as I need to, but one way that I love to spend a few minutes with myself is by placing my phone on silent, pouring myself a hot beverage like some vegan hot chocolate, and sitting down for 15 to 30 minutes doing something like journaling, meditating, or just doodling allowing my mind to wander in complete freedom.

And since JORD Wood Watches sent me the most gorgeous watch from their FRANKIE series in Zebrawood and Champagne, I am completely loving keeping up with my moments of self care on it.  This watch is comfortable, uncomplicated, and a unique way for me to keep up with time throughout the day and since I have been so busy lately, keeping up with time is a complete must.

    Ugh, I’ve been crazy busy too. The last three months of the year are always nuts!
    The watches are gorgeous. I’ve always admired JORD.
    The kids LOVE hot chocolate and I always try to make it vegan and they aren’t having that. Perhaps I should try it your way!
