7 Tips for the Busy Witch

Life. Gets. Crazy.

It just does – so it can be hard to find balance between the hustle and bustle and sprinkling some magic into your life. So this week we’ve gathered our top tips that can balance out your more mundane tasks with some magic, without emptying your cup.

Witch Tip #1: When you wake up, take 3-5 extra minutes to sit in the quiet. Even if it’s just while you sip your coffee, use these few minutes to just be. This is a form of grounding and meditation.

Witch Tip #2: What’s more portable than a tumbled crystal? Chuck one in your pocket – or your bra! – to flavour the kind of day you want to have. Need some success at work? Citrine! Want to maintain a sense of peace in your busy day? Amethyst! Simple.

Witch Tip #3: Alter your workspace – make it witchier! Keep a crystal on your desk for success and motivation – like pyrite, carnelian or smoky quartz. You could also tuck an energy balancing spray in your drawers, or draw sigils on post it notes and stick them where you want their energy to be absorbed. 

Witch Tip #4: Did you know you could get tarot apps on your phone? There are also smaller sized tarot decks that will fit easily into your laptop case or handbag. On your lunch break, do a quick reading to get a feel for the energies surrounding your day and to stay connected to your intuition. 

Witch Tip #5: We’ve all gotta cook at some point – even if its just throwing some granola on a cup of yoghurt. When you’re in the kitchen, try prepping with purpose. Be present, choose your ingredients with intention, maybe even whisper a few incantations over your food.

Witch Tip #6: Take breaks. We get it, you’ve got WORK to do! But you can take five for a walk in the sun. Do your best to pay attention to your surroundings, rather than what’s in your head. Your mind will thank you, and you’ll feel more refreshed than you expect. You may even notice the universe trying to tell you something.

Witch Tip #7: Carry an essential oil in your handbag. You can have one for energy, one for strength, one for calming, one to attract love – they can be used in so many ways. And if you don’t have time to make your own, there are some wonderful stores you can buy enchanted essential oils from. 

Magick can be woven into your daily life, no matter how busy you are. Maintaining your witchiness doesn’t need to be sacrificed, nor does it need to cost you your sanity. Embrace these simple practices for when life gets a bit chaotic, and have the best of both worlds. You deserve that balance.
