Let’s address the elephant in the room. The idea that five tools can be used daily to create an elevated life can seem foreign and difficult, but I’d like to show you how adding these five tools to your mom-box is the best thing you can do to create an elevated life.
When you see the value of something, it becomes easier & easier to justify the time & means necessary to produce the outcome. Therefore, we begin with the end in mind.
Because of this, before we get started with the five tools to create an elevated life, I’d like to take a moment and invite you to close your eyes.
To begin with, take a few deep breaths. Breathe In & breathe out.
Moreover, on your next breath in, squeeze every muscle in your body, and release. Close your eyes. Draw your awareness to any sound around you; become fully present with your own presence.
At this time, as you tune in, notice that the voice in your mind that worries about the future and gets hung up on the past gently fades away, taking with it all the cares of your world.
Now that you are relaxed, imagine a movie playing in your mind’s eye. Projected on the screen is a vision of a new reality where you awaken to a limitless world- one where your body, mind, and time have no limitations; there are no obstacles in your way.
After that, bring this into the future moment as if it was happening right now. How would it feel, taste, & smell to be limitless?
What would you do if you felt great all the time? How would it feel if you were plugged into an abundant power source of health, wealth, and vitality? If you were constantly smiling, laughing, dancing, living, giving, & feeling peaceful?
….Become one with this feeling for a moment….
Additionally, trust that we are going somewhere.
Trust that you can reverse engineer your bridge to get you where you want to be. But, your first step is creating the blueprint after catching the vision for what it will be like to live an elevated life.
Once you can see and believe it, you can literally create it. I challenge you to give yourself permission to think about what obstacles are actually your current opportunity to overcome your circumstances.
Grabbing tools to support your journey of building your bridge is your next step.
Significantly, this is also what supports the rest of this post offering the top five tools I’ve used daily to create an elevated life.
1. My first recommendation in top five tools: Get a hobby that supports mental health
Whether it’s ten minutes or two hours, you having a hobby is not only justifiable, but it’s healthy too! There is tons of research behind this, (not the point of this post, but I invite you to go deeper here in another of my posts).
Accordingly, I’ll share one of my favorite hobbies & offer you a link to check it out for yourself.
This is one of my favorites because it’s easy to learn on little brain power, & it’s semi-creative without having to be creative.
Moreover, this is also the best because it’s easy to store, easy to pull out, and put away; it’s therapeutic in a relaxing and settling way. It’s called Paint by Diamonds, & it’s one of my favorite tools to elevate life.

Regardless of if it’s my suggestion or a hobby you dream up, I encourage you to just get started in baby-step-ten-minute blocks finding a hobby that fits as a tool to an elevated life.
All in all, there are a lot of suggestions I could make. There’s an entire chapter in my ebook Fill Your Bucket for Busy Moms that could help you sort this out! Moms say this is great and can be read in an afternoon nap time! Learn more here.
2. Get organized with the greatest planner ever as a tool to an elevated life.
Not everyone is a “planner person”, but if you are, (or you have never tried it), pay close attention to this tool. A good planner can revolutionize the way you do motherhood. I’m serious.
Undeniably, nothing changes if nothing changes, right?
On the other hand, baby steps add up over time. And, when coupled with intentions to build a bridge from where you are at where you want to be, change is not only possible, but inevitable.
Under those circumstances, this is where dreams come true.
Writing out ALL THE THINGS, in categories, and habit tracking, with goals & inspiration all in one place was the dream. In fact, getting a snapshot of my life in one page, then being able to break down into baby steps my next tasks has been a game changer for me.
Basically, I’ve become a professional planner tester. I have tried out dozens of organizational methods, & even created a few of my own. (Grab freebies here)
In light of of all the trial & error, I have found the You Can Have It All Planner is my favorite.
At any rate, I wouldn’t be me without passing on this stellar recommendation. Use my link for this tool to view more. And watch this video of me reviewing this epic planner.
**Remember, I only recommend to you things that I have personally used and have elevated my journey.
3. Speaking of elevating journeys, this collection of products is a transformative tool to add to your mom-box!
Once I felt the effects of a healthy gut & brain, I literally have never gone back. I’m happy to say that the results of just compounded over time.
The tool is a collection of products that increase energy, mood, and the health of the gut microbiome-which is kinda like the body’s production line of bacteria that decide if you are healthy or ill, both physically and mentally.
Undeniably, the science on this is a bonkers cool. This tool has been a HUGE game-changer for my entire family! This is why I just has to include it in my list of top five tools to elevate your life.
I have quite a bit of information on this through the website, including a video of my favorite products linked below.

4. Support systems may be the best tool of all time, although often overlooked as valuable.
This tool is worthy of its’ top five title to an elevated life.
Your people can be there for you during your most challenging times. Your support systems can lift you up & show you resources and experiences and stories that can rock your world & elevate your life.
Having an expanding support system that you trust is secure, respectful, knowledgeable, and compassionate is probably the best thing tool you can have as a mom.
I, of course, have recommendations for this tool to help you create an elevated life!
Mom on the Climb has a Tribe of amazing women that support each other with friendship, resources, stories, & experience. The collective experience amongst these women is mind-blowing and I’m honored to be a part of their journeys.
I also have to recommend XXO Connect as a growth and connection platform, as the possibilities for expansive growth is mind blowing inside that space. MIND-BLOWING. Click here to learn more and see what other’s are saying as far as experiencing XXO Connect.
5. An energy frequency device called Healy is a tool I legitimately use daily and love so much because it works so well & so fast, so predictably!
Originally created by sports medicine physicians in Germany, research has proved hundreds of ways this energy device can positively impact the vibrations in our body.
Although this isn’t in everyone’s budget range, birthdays and holidays and savings is still a thing.
If there’s a will, there’s a way.
On a positive note, can you really put a price tag on health, mental vitality, physical & spiritual well-being and energetic alignment?
To each their own, but to me….. It’s priceless to feel good and be able to control the energies around sleep, mood, pain, focus, & everything else that impacts my physical and energetic body.
….And at the push of a button connected to an app, no less!
Learn more and use my affiliate link here! And watch this video I created showing you how I use this to relieve menstrual pain!
To sum up…these are the five tools I’ve used daily to create an elevated life.
My life isn’t perfect by far….
However, my quality of life has increased greatly, my stress resilience has increased, and my panic attacks are gone. I’m off ALL pharmaceuticals for depression, mood stabilization, and anxiety. Biggest wins- I feel triggered less, happier more, motivated & energized more, & more present.
….And to me, that everything.
What is it for you? I invite you back to the energy at the top of this post where you leaned into the vision of your limitless self. Do it again if needed.
At this point, I invite you to save and share this post. With this intention, hold hope that these tools exist. What’s more, you can grab ahold of them any time you are ready.
