8 Practices for a #SelfLove Valentine’s Day with Original G·E·M·S Life

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on 8 Practices for a #SelfLove Valentine’s Day with Original G·E·M·S Life

This Valentine’s Day, we’re asking you to look inward. And listen to your body. If it’s saying, “Lover, lover, lover…you don’t treat me no good no more”, then it’s time to practice a little self-love — Original G·E·M·S Life-style.


START. COMMIT. KEEP GROWING. JUMP INTO ORIGINAL G·E·M·S LIFE!


“But isn’t self-care a little…selfish?”, haters will say. Actually, no! By engaging regularly in a few self-indulgent practices, we’re actually bettering ourselves for those we love.

Healthy self-care isn’t just about indulgence though — it’s about implementing practices that help ground us and relieve stress and its effects (anxiety, sleep problems, and irritability, anyone?).

In the Name of #SelfLove

Take time for a little self-care now, and keep stress levels low so you can operate at your brightest.

We’ve created a go-to self-care checklist to guide you through a Valentine’s Day with Original G·E·M·S Life — a daily playbook based our founding principles, designed to help you Shine Brighter in all areas of your life. Taking part simply requires doing four daily practices, one in each of these categories: Gratitude, Eat Clean, Movement, Shine. 

Try one practice below every day from each category, and enjoy some much-deserved YOU time this month!

8 Ways to Practice Self Care with Original G·E·M·S Life

Show GRATITUDE by

  • Choosing a daily mantra, an affirmation repeated to yourself every day. Repeat after us: “I am enough, I have enough, and I am doing enough.”
  • Share your own Gratitude journal! Don’t just write down what you’re thankful for, share it online! Your warm fuzzies will light up the dark corners of the internet. Just don’t forget to tag us and add #OriginalGEMSLife so we can join in the Love Fest!

EAT CLEAN with

  • Our Tahitian Pearl Smoothie! Who says you can’t indulge in a little chocolate AND check off your #EatClean practice? 
  • Your very own GEM Cacao mix! Add to your own breakfast smoothies, or if you’re craving something sweeter, mix in with our housemade cashew milk!

Get MOVING by

  • Trying a self-love yoga session. We ❤️️ this one by Yoga with Adrienne (perfect for Valentine’s Day!). 
  • Getting organized! Keeping things free from clutter has been proven to keep you on track and helps you maintain your goals. Turn on some music, strap on those disco shoes, and get your workspace, closet, laundry room, or whatever space you’ve been avoiding back in order!

SHINE brighter by

  • Committing to your body-care routine. Maybe it’s skin care or supplements. Or morning stretching. We all slack on these sometimes. But whatever it is, do it every day! 
  • Detoxing with our GEM Detox Bath Salts. Our bath salts relax tense muscles, replenish magnesium, and reduce inflammation. Plus, their healing properties can also help moisturize your skin, decrease stress, and help you sleep better. Order yours today!

Whether you can commit to just one of these practices daily, or all of them, remember that YOU ARE WORTH IT. 

“Anytime we can listen to [our] true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” – Parker Palmer

Happy #SelfLove Valentine’s Day, GEMS!

If You’re Reading This, It’s NOT Too Late! Restart 2021 with Original G·E·M·S Life

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on If You’re Reading This, It’s NOT Too Late! Restart 2021 with Original G·E·M·S Life

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill.

Read this again. Because we know there’s at least one New Year’s resolution you haven’t seen through. We know, because we’re guilty, too. They say 80% of folks break their resolutions during the year. Listen, that’s OK! None of us are flawless all the time.


IN A RUT? GET INSPIRED WITH ORIGINAL G·E·M·S LIFE TODAY!


We’re calling on you now, dear GEMS: Whatever resolution you’ve already broken this year, take it easy on yourself. Let go of the need to have it all together, all the time. So what if you didn’t get that to-do list completed yesterday, or sneak in that early morning workout you promised yourself you would?

Each day is a fresh start. Just get back on the wagon and start again. Your habits are practice. And contrary to what folks say, practice doesn’t make perfect — practice makes PROGRESS.

4 Letters = 1 Recipe to Shine Brighter

Ready to start anew? Simply select one practice that resonates with you from one or all of all of the four Original G·E·M·S categories: Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, and Shine. Commit to doing it daily for a week, then a month, a year, and then eventually forever! Add on more when you’re ready, and watch the transformation begin!

The 4 Original G·E·M·S Life categories include:

  • GRATITUDE: Habits of reflection to find your joy.
  • EAT CLEAN: Food rules that keep your body at its best.
  • MOVE: Activities to keep your body strong and your mood bright.
  • SHINE: Restorative ideas to care for your body and soul.

If you miss a day, don’t stress. Just get back on the disco train and start again. This program doesn’t have an end point — the goal is growth, positivity, and your intention to Shine Brighter. Get started today by clicking here.

Ditch Your 2021 Resolutions. Commit to Original G·E·M·S Life!

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on Ditch Your 2021 Resolutions. Commit to Original G·E·M·S Life!

Every year’s the same story; on January 1st, I sit down and thoughtfully write out my lofty New Year’s resolutions, only to feel defeated by mid-February. Resolutions can be so binary, leaving no room for error. If you’re not first, you’re last — but that’s not how change works, and that’s not how life is.


JUMP INTO ORIGINAL G·E·M·S LIFE! GET STARTED TODAY.


To be clear: Reflecting on your life and setting goals of self-improvement are critical to an evolved and enriched life, for SURE! But let’s face it, none of us is perfect. We falter, over and over (and over!) again. Growth simply doesn’t happen overnight. It takes small, daily habits to create long term change for the better.

That’s why we’re inviting YOU, dear GEM, to commit to our new program this year to bring more happiness and health to your life — your Original G·E·M·S Life. 

Start. Commit. Grow. 

By starting each morning with just ONE Original G·E·M·S Life practice in each category — Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, and Shine — you’ll set the tone for the rest of your day, creating long-term benefits for your mind and body. 

Our Original G·E·M·S Life program isn’t about living the perfect life; it’s about committing to doing something to feed your body and soul every day — and when (not if!) you falter, getting back on and recommitting over and over again. And it’s about small, easy-to-remember things you do every day. Lovely, delicious, relaxing, indulgent practices that are enjoyable as the results they produce. It’s also about the fact that you will fail, because you are a person, not a butterfly or a caterpillar — when you do, you simply begin again. 

Original G·E·M·S Practices for a Shinier New Year!

It’s so simple. Just start each morning with just ONE Original G·E·M·S Life practice in each category — Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, and Shine — and get ready to Shine Brighter this year! Here are a few ideas to get into the groove.

  • GRATITUDE: Go out of your way to make someone smile.
  • EAT CLEAN: Drink a Green Glow juice with breakfast.
  • MOVE: Squeeze in a 10-minute workout between Zoom calls.
  • SHINE: Take Natural Calm at bedtime to support a good night’s sleep. 

If you miss a day, don’t stress. Just get back on the disco train and start again. This program doesn’t have an end point — the goal is growth, positivity, and your intention to Shine Brighter.

Sleigh Holiday Stress with Original G·E·M·S Life – Part II (SHINE!)

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on Sleigh Holiday Stress with Original G·E·M·S Life – Part II (SHINE!)

The holiday season brings with it happiness and joy, but can also be a stressful time for even the jolliest of GEMs. Solution? Beat that stress to the punch with our Original G·E·M·S Life program. By doing the four practices every day — Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, Shine — you’ll see less and less stress in your life and more peace and happiness.

In our last blog post, we focused on ways to combat stress with MOVE. This week, we’re introducing new SHINE practices to help you stay stress-free during the holidays. Care for your body and soul this holiday season with these five SHINE practices.

5 Tips for Stress-Free Holidays with SHINE

  • Skip the Eggnog: Curb the nighttime cocktails this holiday season by drinking festive mocktails — try an ounce of Immunity Mix with sparkling water and garnish with thai basil and a sliced radish! It’s soooo good–with or without your favorite spirit. Alcohol may make you fall asleep faster, but it will make your sleep less restful. Try to limit your drinking to once a week (or no nights!) as your SHINE practice. 
  • Breathe In. Breathe Out. By practicing simple breathing exercises, you can help regulate your nervous system and manage anxiety for a restful night’s sleep. Try these techniques from Mind Body Green and do one every night before bed to check off your SHINE practice. 
  • Deck The Halls with CBD. CBD oil is known to relieve anxiety and depression symptoms, among many other benefits. Stock up to make CBD part of your daily SHINE practice. (Trusted Lab CBD products make awesome stocking stuffers, too!)
  • All is CALM. A dose of Natural Calm every night can help quell anxiety and promote a more restful sleep. Magnesium deficiencies are often the culprit of tossing and turning. Try a little bit at first — and increase from there. Magnesium will also help you be a little more, ahem, regular, so you don’t want to overdo it. 
  • Rudolph’s Root Routine. Add a one-two punch of turmeric and ginger to your morning drink for better digestion, decreased inflammation and, we think, a nice calming drink. You can pick up a Turmeric Latte during the day at The GEM, or make one at home with our house made Cashew Milk and Bottled Turmeric or Ginger. Adding these roots to your daily supplementation routine will make quick work of your SHINE practice. Done!

Prioritizing your health during the holidays is the BEST way to curb anxiety and stress. Following these Original G·E·M·S Life practices through MOVE and SHINE will bring peace and joy to both you and your family, and help you enjoy the very best this season has to offer. 

Merry merry, GEMS!

Sleigh Holiday Stress with Original G·E·M·S Life – Part I (MOVE!)

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on Sleigh Holiday Stress with Original G·E·M·S Life – Part I (MOVE!)

Let’s be honest about health and wellness during the holidays…stress happens. And when we experience stress, our health suffers. Our body’s energy fuel tank gets depleted. We tend to lose sleep, and become more anxious. Stress actually affects your immune system. Because of this, it’s crucial to approach this time of year with a plan to combat the impending stress.


JUMP INTO ORIGINAL G·E·M·S LIFE! GET STARTED TODAY.


The holiday season brings with it happiness and joy, but can also be a stressful time for even the jolliest of GEMs. Solution? Beat that stress to the punch with our Original G·E·M·S Life program. By doing the four practices every day — Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, Shine — you’ll see less and less stress in your life and more peace and happiness.

In our last blog post, we focused on ways to practice GRATITUDE. This week, we’re introducing MOVE and SHINE practices to help you stay stress-free during the holidays.

Make your nights more silent and your days more jolly during this special time of year through these MOVE practices from Original G·E·M·S Life.

MOVE: Five Ways to Shake Holiday Stress Away

  • Sleigh Your Ride. Go old school and take your bike on quick errands. Or for a super awesome treat, gift yourself a Peloton bike! MK loves hers — as does everyone we know who has one! This bike comes with instructors and personalized training plans that you can do any time — check off that MOVE practice!  
  • Jingle Bell Walk. Feeling a little cooped up? Don’t make heavy going of your MOVE practice, just put on some comfy shoes and get outside! Don a festive hat and join a friend for a brisk walk! Throw on some leg warmers and ankle weights and get retro if you want to burn calories. Whatever you do, just move! 
  • Try a Personal Trainer. Ready to sweat? Hire a personal trainer to come to your home — they’ll bring the equipment and you don’t need to step foot into a gym.  They can even give you light exercises or stretching work to do on your rest days so you can check off your MOVE practice every day of the week.  
  • Practice Yuletide Yoga. Whether for spiritual transformation, stress management or physical well-being, the benefits are undeniable. It’s easy to get your MOVE in every day with 10 or 60 minutes of yoga. Just grab your mat and YouTube with Yoga with Adrienne — and don’t hesitate to get the fam involved. Yoga is great for kids too! 
  • Reindeer Games. Forget Apples to Apples, try these active family games for the holidays like the Jingle Bell Shake, Elephant March, or Poop the Potato. Making physical activity a family affair is an easy way to get your MOVE practice done for the day.

Prioritizing your health during the holidays is the BEST way to curb anxiety and stress. Following these Original G·E·M·S Life practices through MOVE and SHINE will bring peace and joy to both you and your family, and help you enjoy the very best this season has to offer.

5 Eat Clean Practices for a Holiday GLOW (Original G·E·M·S Life)

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on 5 Eat Clean Practices for a Holiday GLOW (Original G·E·M·S Life)

Gingerbread cookies and reindeer treats and holiday pies, OH, MY! With the fun traditions of the holidays comes the inevitably tempting seasonal sweet treats and sugary goodies. But our new program, Original G·E·M·S Life, is designed to help you stay on track through the holidays and every day.


ORDER OUR ORGANIC JUICES, SMOOTHIES & GREEN BITES FOR PICKUP OR DELIVERY!


Taking part in Original G·E·M·S Life just requires doing four daily practices, one in each of these categories: Gratitude, Eat Clean, Movement, Shine. Eat Clean practices include our tried-and-true food rules that keep your body at its best.

By adding one of these EAT CLEAN practices to your Original G·E·M·S Life you can rest assured you’re doing right by your body AND enjoy your holidays at the same time.

5 Eat Clean Practices for a Holiday GLOW

  • STAY HYDRATED. Drink 32 ounces of water upon waking every day. Then remember to drink a big glass of water an hour before you sit down to dinner. (If you drink it too close to eating, it dilutes your gastric juices and impedes digestion.) Oftentimes we mistake hunger for thirst. In reality, our bodies are simply dehydrated. 
  • DRINK YOUR DAILY JUICE. You can pick your favorite juice, but make sure you drink it every day. I crave my celery juice in the mornings—and I add parsley and kale for a bigger chlorophyll punch). This ensures I stay hydrated, but also boosts immunity, manages blood sugar levels, and reduces cravings.
  • EXTRA GREENS AT EVERY MEAL. Put in the effort to add some in every meal, every day. Pack them onto your plate or blend them in! Add them to your morning smoothies, blend into sauces, soups and even rice (blend garlic, cilantro, and spinach in your Vitamix with a cup of bone broth, then use it to cook your rice or quinoa!).
  • EAT BEFORE YOU GO-GO. Have a healthy snack before you leave the house every day. Keep nutrient dense foods on hand, like our MVP soup. It is super satisfying and is loaded with veggies and satisfying fiber. It’s a secret weapon for hunger cravings!
  • ENJOY A DAILY INDULGENCE. Don’t deprive yourself. Whatever your treat is, treat yourself every day. Keep your portion small, and don’t eat other indulgences, especially just because they’re there! Make your splurge worth it.

Don’t let holiday eating take control of your diet. You can take control with these EAT CLEAN practices from Original G·E·M·S Life and come out of the holidays with habits that you keep for a lifetime!

Original G·E·M·S Life: 8 Ways To Show GRATITUDE This Thanksgiving!

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has 3 Comments on Original G·E·M·S Life: 8 Ways To Show GRATITUDE This Thanksgiving!

We adore this energizing, inspiring holiday. Let it be a day of total GRATITUDE: for family, friendships, abundant delicious foods, and vibrant health. An all-nourishing kind of day – the body and soul. Don’t take it for granted…gratitude makes you GLOW.


Start. Commit. Grow. Join Original G·E·M·S Life!


Last week we shared our Original G·E·M·S Life, a recipe to Shine Brighter. We SPELLED it out very simply: select a practice that resonates with you from each of the four Original G·E·M·S categories: Gratitude, Eat Clean, Move, and Shine. The first category is Gratitude. How appropriate that we begin the Original G·E·M·S Life just days before the biggest gratitude day of the year. 

To make this a GEM-my Thanksgiving, embrace these small acts of kindness that will result in an elevated feeling of gratitude for all your blessings of abundance.

8 Ways Original G·E·M·S Show GRATITUDE for Thanksgiving

  • DECORATE. Adorn your table with words and photos of gratitude.
  • VOLUNTEER. Find ways to serve someone less fortunate. 
  • EMBRACE. Invite someone who would welcome the company.
  • SHARE. Share extras with a neighbor, a friend, or someone in need.
  • EXPRESS. Thank the top 5 people who have made a positive influence on your life. Tell them why.
  • GIVE. Make a donation to the North Texas Food Bank, or any other local non-profit organization. 
  • EXEMPLIFY. Provide guests with cards they can write down what they are grateful for. 
  • JUST BECAUSE. Bring a busy friend a turmeric latte or elevated coffee on Wednesday morning as they prep for the big day.

And don’t forget, dear GEMS:

  • CENTER YOURSELF. The holidays, even with all their glitter and excitement, can be emotionally draining. Family dynamics, loneliness, financial issues, and just the intense chaos of it all can be overwhelming. Take some time for yourself the night before to decompress. We need to take care of ourselves first!

We are most grateful for you, our dear GEMS—for your support, your passion for better health, your smiles, and your kind words we hear from you daily. Have a gratitude and laughter filled, healthy Thanksgiving. We love you, GEMs! See you back for more GEM goodness soon.

Supplement Your Way to SHINE — Our Top Recommendations!

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments on Supplement Your Way to SHINE — Our Top Recommendations!

The right supplements give your body the turbo boost it needs to stay healthy and strong. BUT! All supplements aren’t created equal. Because of this, we’ve compiled our full guide to must-have supplements, just for you.


Head over to PICKUP your supplements or place an order for DELIVERY today!


Getting the right nutrients used to come easier. Today, soil depletion, industrial farming, pesticides, and the air itself puts a HUGE strain on our food supply (and our bodies)! The right kind of supplements give your body the turbo boost it needs to stay healthy and strong. But all supplements aren’t created equal. Fortunately, we’ve got the good ones at The GEM and can coach you on what to look for.

Six GEM-Approved Supplements To Save the Day

  • MULTIVITAMIN. Look for vitamins naturally derived from food, and preferably organic ingredients. We carry some awesome brands for men, women, pre- or post-menopausal, prenatal and more. 
  • PROBIOTICS. Fact: 70 percent of our immune system is housed in our digestive tract—which can be compromised by stress, poor eating, and antibiotics. The right kind of probiotics replenish healthy bacteria, improving digestion and overall mental and physical health.
  • VITAMIN D3. This multitasker supports immune function and can reduce your risk of breast cancer by as much as 50 percent! It aids calcium absorption and plays a central role in muscle function.
  • OMEGA 3 FISH OIL. Omega 3s greatly reduce inflammation in your body, support brain and heart function, and treat rheumatoid arthritis, depression, and ADHD. It’s our all-star anti-inflammation supplement.
