restore JOY ~ reclaim SANITY ~ revitalize Y-O-U
About Arlene 2017-04-27T13:29:56+00:00

My name is Arlene Figueroa and I’m a Women’s Wellness Educator because I fell and got back up again. Not once, but two major times in my life.

I show mom’s how to restore joy, calm, and health by using the Basic 6 essentials for daily living. Because we all need a soft place to land when we are overwhelmed in our roles. When things get rough (as they tend to) it’s crucial to have the tools necessary to navigate back to center.

There was a point in my journey through motherhood when the overwhelm was apparent and I knew I needed to learn how to stay centered and resilient because my family depended on me AND I wanted to get ‘me’ back. This is when I learned how to use our very own blueprint for design to keep steady on this road of motherhood.

That’s why the focus around here is about understanding and learning to use practical life rhythm tools that work in everyday living (for real). They help to restore JOY, reclaim SANITY, and revitalize YOURSELF.

These tools worked (still work) for me every single day.

Here’s my story (in a nutshell)…

Fall # 1. Happened waaay back in 1996 when I cured my own IBS (not one of the many doctors I visited ever asked me about the food I ate or the life I lived)

The result I learned to live by: Be your own best advocate and ‘Question what you’re told.’ Period. No one has ALL the answers, and certainly not all of yours. Your life is unique to you and you need to learn how to
‘Own it and thrive.’
AND that means we need (to want) to know more about the bodies we live in than the technology we use. It’s that simple.

Fall # 2. I fell the second time after having my three kids. YES I love them, but I didn’t know how to also love myself after becoming a mom. Meaning, I was so busy trying to meet everyone else’s needs while falling short on my own (I suspect I’m not alone here). Anxiety hit me for the first time and I was drowning in my over whelm until I had an epiphany (thanks to my beautiful husband).

Lesson learned: Everyone will suffer until you learn how to stay vital.

TODAY:

I live with my husband and best friend since 1996 and we’re raising our three very spirited children (and unexpectedly homeschooling them) while embracing all of the paradoxes of parenting. I’m in “full-on” mode everyday. It’s been a wild ride and it’s an ever changing journey – nothing like I’d imagined years ago when I had a different idea of motherhood and parenting – oh how things change. I’ve learned how to yield to our lives and not some ‘ideal’. That realization came to me after having three little people around me conditioning a new reality that often came with a side of overwhelm (my clue for a re-write). So I re-imagined motherhood and designed a plan that’s real – and here we are.

I’m most certainly a work in progress – with a HUGE will to thrive. I don’t have all the answers (nobody does), but I have a driving passion for finding truths to live by, and the desire to always learn and grow (and I have). I went to school for Health and Wellness Education (and I’m certified), but most importantly, I have a PhD in experience.

My intention behind this community I support (and created) is to have a soft space to land (when needed) and even more, a place to learn and grow from. Because we are nothing if we can’t understand our foundation.

Here we talk about…

Integrating all of the essentials for well-being and

nourishing the woman within the mom.

That is how to keep this instrument of Life in Harmony
&
that’s the focus around here ~ Welcome!

To a place where we support one another – free of judgement – and learn and grow together.

It’s not about right or wrong.

It’s about what works for a Life in Harmony.

“Life is a novelty and it’s our gift. Embrace each day with a smile.”

My husband is a poet in his creative time and he wrote this. Not bad huh? Makes you think about our time here…

Well that’s a bit more about me. I’m glad you’re here and I invite you to share your stories with me as we journey together.
With grace and gratitude,

Arlene
