Taking it Easy on Yourself - Commercial Silk Review

It has been a tough couple of months.  Work has been very busy, we had a several-week long heat wave (with temps 100+), and I have not been feeling so well.

I am hoping that since it's almost Fall (late September), that things will get better.  I'm definitely less nauseous, and today, the temperature was under 80 degrees!!

I've been pretty hard on myself recently because I would do things like not eat the healthiest, skip workouts because I'm too tired/it's too hot, or oversleep and then miss another workout opportunity.  If I miss mornings, I'm pretty done for the day since I tire out from working and the day.  However, I know I need to be kinder to myself and slow down sometimes.

We're finally taking a family trip soon, which is exciting!!  I haven't been anywhere in a good while, and we get to take the boy on his first plane ride.

Another enjoyable thing is that I received a lovely addition to my home from Commercial Silk (

I was immediately drawn to this mini cherry blossom bonsai tree.  I think it adds a nice touch to the mantle and reminds me of my trip to Japan almost four years ago.

Since I'm fairly incompetent when it comes to gardening, I really appreciate having a silk-based, realistic-looking plant in the house that requires no care and brightens my day every time I see it.  Even the dirt looks real... and no bugs!!

If you are looking for something like this for either yourself or as a gift, I definitely recommend checking out Commercial Silk.  They have larger and smaller trees and other topiaries for indoor and outdoor applications.  With the need to conserve water here in California, it is nice to have this realistic and sturdy option.

  1. Nice site, It strikes a nice balance of the concept. I had a natural tendency towards 'mindfulness' from a young age. I am glad that I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation. Thanks for sharing.
