516 Podcast Episode 25 : 5 Daily Productivity Habits
When it comes to productivity, we often think it involves stuffing so much into each hour to squeeze out every last second.  For the most part, however, we should approach the idea of productivity in a work smarter not harder approach.  Productivity isn't about squeezing every last second out of each minute it's about intentionally using each minute, one day at a time, to move towards our goals. Making the most out of your day includes taking care of yourself. so let's talk about how we can be more productive while also being mindful of our own physical and emotional needs. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/04/5-daily-habits-to-increase-productivity.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 24 : Let's Talk Morning and Evening Routines
Do you feel boxed in and limited when it comes to setting a routine?  Do you feel like a child again being told what to do when you're a responsible adult whose been paying her own bills and running her own life and hasn't fallen off a cliff yet?  Do you think you don't need a morning or evening routine? Yeah I didn't either.  But I've got more questions for you - Are you thinking about your goals more than you are acting on them?  Are you feeling stressed at work or after work or on the weekends knowing that there are looming deadlines but you're too tired to act on them?  Are you hitting the snooze multiple times?  Have you given up on doing somethings that you used to love because either you don't have the time or you wish you could but you just don't want to? You may need a routine, honey. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/05/why-you-need-morning-evening-routine.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 23 : Apps I use as an 'Influencer'
I've been blogging for over 10 years now and the landscape of blogging has changed so much since I first started.  I've also become more streamlined in my own blogging - only doing what I feel is worth my time, using the camera that I have, and working from my phone a lot of the time.  If it isn't simple for me to do...then I don't do it!  (Which is why I love Anchor! I do most of the podcast work from my phone!) I'm not the type of blogger who likes to follow the rules.  I find the 'proper way to blog' to be overwhelming & time wasting for me.  Examples - I don't have a self hosted blog, I use my iPhone to take photos, I never research keywords for post titles, I'm bad at newsletters, and the list goes on.  However, I still consider myself a successful blogger.  Part of this is because I'm authentic.  Another part is that I share relevant info.  And the final part is that I use apps & tools to streamline my process. As someone who works a lot from my phone, you'll find apps & programs that have both a desktop and a mobile version.  This is the number one reason why I'm considering getting my next iPhone in the Plus model for the bigger screen!  Anyway, here are the apps & tools I use to run my blog! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/06/boost-your-blog-apps-i-use-to-run-my.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 22 : How to Set Goals and Intentions with the Moon Phases
You may have been seeing a lot around right now about witchy & woo woo women setting intentions & goals with the lunar cycles.  This has become a really popular topic right now, I feel like, in a lot of circles.  I'm not as consistent with this practice as I used to be but I still think it is important to focus on especially when it comes to self development. At the beginning of this year I asked the question 'what does my be self look like?'  We can't come to be our best selves unless we understand our best selves.  And there are a bunch of different layers that come into play here.  If you're not into woo woo stuff, then this may not be your cup of tea...but hey, it might just be a fun way to get to know yourself! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/06/how-to-use-moon-phases-for-self.html Natal Chart blog post :; https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/07/total-newbies-guide-to-natal-chart.html YouTube video on the same topic :: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cODcCKqgxAc&t=154s Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 21 : Essential Oils for the Autumn Equinox
Last week was the Autumn Eqiunox.  During each equinox - one in the spring & one in the fall - the length of the day and of the night are nearly equal.  It officially marks movement into fall and gives you the proper permission to wear those boots you've been wearing since September first.  And you can officially hang your fall wreaths and sneak in Halloween decorations (don't worry, I do it to!)  If you'd like to get a little woo woo, this day also marks the start of Mabon one of three harvest holidays of the Wheel of the Year.  This holiday asks us to make time to express gratitude & observe balance (as night and day are nearly equal).  Since this is a harvest time, we can celebrate our successes or reap what we have sown through the past year.  We can also reflect up on what hasn't worked for us - what crops, ideas, or projects may have fallen short. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/09/how-to-expertly-blend-essential-oils.html Beginner's Guide to Blending Essential Oils :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/beginners-guide-to-blending-essential.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 20 : How to Combine Tarot, Oracle, and Affirmation Cards
My collection has significantly grown over the last year or so but my purchasing of decks as slowed in the recent months.  I credit this to getting to know the decks I have.  Now, I'm not going to discourage you from buying all the decks (because it can be fun to collect and learn from different decks) but I want you to connect with the decks you have and find where new decks can fit into your journey. I use tarot, oracle, and affirmation cards for personal growth and development.  My persona belief is that these cards don't tell me the future.  These cards reveal to me things I may not consciously know or things that I know...but have chosen to ignore.  Those that are able to use the cards to tell the future have a gift I do not and the cards are mere tools for their gift.  But this belief in revealing subtleties is why I think everyone and anyone can benefit from using tarot & oracle cards. It can be difficult to figure out how to use these decks just by themselves let alone pair these decks together.  Here are the three ways I suggest to start using multiple decks and card styles into one reading. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/06/how-to-combine-tarot-oracle-and.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 19 : Why You Should Open a Digital Etsy Shop
If you're a blogger looking to make a little bit of income on the side, opening a digital shop might be for you.  You can sell digital prints, stock photos, worksheets, workbooks, planner printables, etc. especially if it is relevant to your content.  Opening a digital shop will add another revenue stream from your blog!  There are a ton of eCommerce sites where you can open this type of shop, but I want to tell you about why Etsy is the best place. Etsy is the leading handmade marketplace.  It's been around for 13 years.  I remember when I first heard about Etsy and it was then that I decided to open up shop selling earrings and crocheted items.  I didn't have much success with physical items - plus I did not like to go to the post office!  When I moved up to Indiana in the Fall of 2012, I'd been selling digital items in my Etsy shop for about a year.  At that time I sold blog templates & custom Blogger designs.  It was when I started selling digital items that I found the most success.  It was a balance between being creative and not having to go to the post office! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/06/why-open-digital-etsy-shop.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 18 : How to Cleanse your Sacred Space
Creating a safe and sacred space for yourself is one of the key parts in mediation.  You don't need to dedicate a whole entire room or do anything elaborate - you just need to create a safe space for yourself where you feel comfortable and calm. As we go through our lives, emotions & energies can become attached to us.  These emotions and energies can also become trapped in our homes, bedrooms, & work spaces.  Any place we inhabit (especially with others) can build up stagnant or not so nice energies.  If you've ever come home from a long day of work and just can't shake the stress or have had a fight with a friend or companion and just cant get rid of the emotions you've experienced - this is energy attachment.  Sometimes it's not bothersome to us but sometimes it weighs us down.  Cleansing yourself & your space of these energies can often lift this weight from you and bring a sense of calm or freshness to your space. You can find many clearing rituals online or you can create your own.  Often the best way to get started is to find a ritual that you resonate with and adapt it to your own lifestyle.  As you go through the cleansing a few times you may find yourself adding or subtracting parts as it suits you. Since starting my meditation practice, I've found that doing a little energy clearing ritual prior to my sessions gets me in the right head space for what I plan to be doing.  Animals - and we are animals -are very sensitive to smell & to habit.  Think of Pavlov's dogs - when they were fed a bell rang.  Eventually the dogs associated the ringing of the bell with food and began to salivate at the sound of it.  This is how ritual can begin to affect us.  Our clearing rituals will begin to trigger in us an emotional shift getting us ready for the next task at hand.  As humans, we have a more complex understanding of our emotions and thus can begin to use the habit-turned-ritual process to tap into our higher selves and create a more mindful & spiritual bond with our actions & surroundings. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/07/three-ways-to-cleanse-your-sacred-space.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 17 : 3 Tips for a Successful Planner
Planning has become an obsession of mine.  I started out with just a mini binder from Target and now I have too many shelves of planners that I don't know what to do with.  But while those guys sit unused, I've been focusing on my Mini Happy Planner for ages now.......but just to switch things up I'm playing around with a Classic Size! What??? Something I hear a lot about in the planning community is planner peace.  While this looks different for everyone it is often a long journey & sometimes feels unsuccessful.  Planning should be two things: About you & your needs F U N Yes, we're using this system to get things done but we should also be focusing on how planning affects us.  If we're having fun and feeling inspired we're more likely to get things done & feel productive.  That is why I like to functionally decorate my planner.  Sometimes pretty does serve a purpose...if you want to live an inspired life you've gotta surround yourself with inspiring things. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/08/three-tips-for-successful-planner.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 16 : How to Write Actionable To Do Lists
To do lists are a big part of my planning routine.  They don't usually reside on my weekly pages (though there are exceptions to the rule!) because I like to write specific and actionable lists - so I break things down.  This requires extra space in my planner - either graph filler paper, extra inserts, or sticky notes. If you've ever looked at your planner and felt complete overwhelm, then an actionable to do list might be something you should focus on. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/how-to-write-actionable-to-do-lists-and.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 15 : Beginner's Guide to Blending Essential Oils
Creating your own essential oil blends can be a great way to develop your intuition and improve your emotional (and physical) wellness.  Blending essential oils can seem to be an intimidating task!  Perhaps you've gotten yourself a starter kit or you've collected essential oils that you feel drawn too, but you're not sure how to blend them to get the best emotional and/or physical benefits.  Well....let's get you on your blending way.  I've share quite a few seasonally specific blending guides as well as an in depth look at traveling with essential oils but this post is all about helping you create your own blends for your own needs.  Below is the exact way I started to learn about blending essential oils and I can't wait to share it with you.  You can also find some information on using essential oils topically here.  Check out all the essential oils posts on the blog here.  Let's get started. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/beginners-guide-to-blending-essential.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 14 : Creating an Altar in Shared Spaces
Sometimes our spiritual practices might weird people out.  Why do you have all those rocks? people ask.  What's all this stuff on this table? they'll say.  Often as their picking items up and turning them over in their hands.  Keeping a discreet altar - whether in your home, office, or dorm room - can have an array of benefits with out having to explain things to curious folks.  Though, I am always down for it personally...it can be kind of distracting. Creating an altar in your personal space is important.  Whether it is for ritualistic practices or a place for peace and meditation, we often don't want to have our personal spaces invaded or feel odd for having them in the first place.  Keeping a discreet altar space can be perfect for those still in the broom closet or those who share a common space - like a shared apartment or dorm room, or for a more intimate office setting.  Personally, I have a big ol altar at home in my spare room that I don't care if anyone sees but when it comes to keeping somethings on my office desk - for personal power, calming vibes, and just all around comfort - I choose to do something discreetly that doesn't even seem like an altar at all! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/how-to-create-personal-altar-in-shared.html Ostara Dollar Tree DIY :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/02/make-it-monday-diy-dollar-tree-ostara.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 13 : 10 Ways to Begin your Personal Development Journey
Becoming a better person.  That's what we all want to do with our lives, right?  We want to be the best versions of ourselves.  We're now quite far into the year and may have found that our goals haven't shaped out the way we thought they would have.  This could be good or bad...but we don't have to wait until the new year to start bettering ourselves!  In fact I think there are 3 times in the year we can start ourselves anew - January at the new year, March/April at the Aries New Moon, and September when we're used to going back to school. September has always had the air of a fresh new start - we've got fresh pencils, notebooks, and sneakers, the leaves are slowing turning and nature moves into a new phase.....its just a very magical time of freshness. Plus we'll have Samhain in October which is known as the Witches' New Year. So the Fall in general can be a time of change - to shed the old and prep for the new! We don't have to upend our whole lives to work on personal development.  Nor do we have to feel pressured to change our entire beings to be these better, fantasy versions of ourselves.  Personal development is a journey where the only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.  It's not a journey of comparison or defeat, its a journey of betterment.  So, here are 10 ways to begin your personal development journey. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/10-ways-to-begin-your-personal.html Mindful Morning Routine :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/05/my-mindful-morning-routine.html Post on Visualization :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/03/four-tips-to-get-started-with.html Post on Self-Deprecating Behavior :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/08/mindful-journey-why-i-stopped-being.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 12 : 3 Reasons You Need a Planner (and you might not know it!)
Ever since I've gotten really (and I mean really) into this planner thing others have said "I think I'd like a fun planner like that but I'm not really that busy"  Well I'm here today to tell you that, once, I felt the same way. I'd been blog planning (or creating an editorial calendar) for quite a while and so my planner really started out as a way for me to keep track of that but it evolved into so much more.  Sometimes, it's not necessarily for making plans but four housing all of the things I think about.  So I think of my planner as less of a planning tool sometimes and more as an organizational tool.  When I have an idea I write it down there.  Then I know where I've written it down and it doesn't get lost.  I can also keep all my thoughts organized - I used to have a ton of sections in my planner but now, not so much!  It can be a brain dump area for me, a place to future plan, and place to make sure ideas are organized.  Anything I ever need to know is in there and that's really why I like it. Here are three reasons you need a planner, and you don't even know it! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/11/3-reasons-why-you-need-planner-you-dont.html Writing Actionable to do lists :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/how-to-write-actionable-to-do-lists-and.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 10 : Spiritual Practices for the Modern Babe
Over the last few years I've taken it upon myself to develop a spiritual practice.  It's been a priority of mine to dive deeper into my authenticity and outline exactly what I believe & why I believe it.  In fact, I used to not like the term spiritual or spirituality because it leaned too close to religious for my liking.  But as I've grown through a few things in the last year or so I've realized that personal development and spirituality have become almost synonymous for me.  My personal development has been enhanced by my understanding of many woo woo things. Today I want to share with you three spiritual practices that the modern, self reflective babe should get behind. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/12/top-spiritual-practices-modern-babe.html Cultural Appropriation in my Communities :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/07/cultural-appropriation-in-my-communities.html Essential Oil blog posts :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/search/label/essential%20oils Tips for Creating Diffuser Blends :: http://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/09/beginners-guide-to-blending-essential.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 9 : Getting Started with Candle Magic
One of the very first spells I did when I started exploring witchcraft, paganism, and all around woo woo things was a candle spell.  Then the next spell I did was another candle spell!  Then I got away from candle magic and focused on a few different things.  In the last year or so I haven't done too much spell work but as we move into our new house I'm ready to focus more on my practice/craft so I think I'm going to jump right back in with the simplicity of candle magic! - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  How to Use the Moon Phases for Self Development :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/06/how-to-use-moon-phases-for-self.html All Essential Oils blog posts :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/search/label/essential%20oils 4 Ways to Cleanse your Space :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/07/three-ways-to-cleanse-your-sacred-space.html All Tarot blog posts :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/search/label/tarot%20cards My Favorite Tarot Decks :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/05/current-favorite-oracle-tarot-decks.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 8 - Top 5 Survival Tips for New Moms
About 2 years ago I became a brand new mom.  I was immediately thrown into a whirlwind of a crying baby, sleepless nights, raging hormones, and the struggle to communicate with my partner.  I honestly have never been the person I was in those first few weeks.  It was scary for me.  Being thrust into motherhood is something I thought I was prepared for but I totally wasn't. For some mothers, motherhood comes easy.  And that is great for them!  For others its a couple week long train wreck of survival.  Neither of these is wrong.  If you fall somewhere in the middle, that's not wrong either.  There was once a time that I confessed to my mother that I regretted doing this, I didn't want to be a mom any more, and I wanted it to stop.  Postpartum was hard.  Postpartum IS HARD.  As someone on the other side of a time I thought would never end (and now dealing with a sleep regression) I wanted to share with you the things I've learned that have kept me sane. TRIGGER WARNING : I talk about postpartum anxiety, trouble coping with being a new mom, breastfeeding troubles, and the like.  If this is something that is triggering to you please do not listen to this episode.  If you are feeling anxiety and not yourself around being a new mom, please consult your doctor or care provider. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Read the full blog post here :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2019/12/top-five-survival-tips-for-new-moms.html Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 7 : Diet Culture and my Postpartum Experience
Let's start this off with the punch line - at my 2 week postpartum check up I was down 10 pounds.  By my 4 week postpartum check up I was down 20 pounds total.  To a lot of people that sounds great, right?  Personally, I was at the lowest weight I'd been in a long, long, long while.  But being 20 pounds down wasn't cause for celebration. I'd lost 20 pounds in a month because I flat out wasn't eating. Today, we're going to talk about that. TRIGGER WARNING - I do talk about diet, diet culture, eating, breast feeding, postpartum anxiety, and the like.  Pls do not listen if this is triggering for you.  I also want to say I do use the word 'women/woman' a lot in this episode.  I am a cis woman and this is my personal experience I am recounting.  However, I do know these feelings can apply to any birthing person and do not want to discount or diminish anyone's birthing experiences.  So many different types of people bring life into this world and it is beautiful and it is hard.  In this episode I just hope to share with you that you're not alone. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) :: https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/ Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 6 - 6 Places to find Photo Props to style your Social Feeds
If you've ever been super envious of those perfectly styled blog photos you see all over Pinterest, I've got the solution for you!  You don't have to spend a butt ton of money to build your library of styling props you just need a keen & creative eye. First off, make sure you have a rough idea of your blog's style.  You can start by understanding and creating a style guide and creating a brand board of inspiring images over on Pinterest.  When you do this you're less likely to say 'hey that looks nice!' to something that may not fit in with your blog's (or other social media outlet) vibe.  Understanding the vision of the posts your write and the presence you want to create will help you say yes to better photo props. - Show Notes Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Boost your Blog Articles :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/search/label/boost%20your%20blog Understanding/Creating a Style Guide :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2016/03/boost-your-blog-what-is-style-guide.html Spring Decor Dollar Tree DIY :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/02/make-it-monday-diy-dollar-tree-ostara.html Scene Creators (affiliate links) - The Hungry Jpeg - Creative Market  - Etsy -Design Bundles.

516 Podcast Episode 4 : the Anatomy of a Ritual Bath
Welcom e to the fourth episode of the 516 Podcast! Today we'll be chatting about ritual baths - what the heck a ritual bath is and how you can create one of your own in 5 steps.  A ritual bath is my favorite way to connect with my higher self and grow with my inner self.  When I first started my spiritual journey I found the ritual bath would give me the time and the space to work.  Most of my current magickal workings involve intentions, mantras, or affirmations charged with oils and crystals and sometimes a little bit of candle magick.   - Show Notes -  Download the corresponding planner insert in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  The Anatomy of a Ritual Bath blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2020/02/the-anatomy-of-ritual-bath-in-5-simple.html  Essential Oil Pairings :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/05/make-it-monday-diy-diffuser-necklace.html  Getting Started with Candle Magic :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2019/10/getting-started-with-candle-magic.html  Essential Emotions book on Amazon :: https://amzn.to/38iwnlp (affiliate link)  Ideas for a Self Care Retreat at Home :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/07/7-ideas-for-self-care-retreat-at-home.html  Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.
