6 Steps to Better Health NOW!
Life is a State of Balance
While at the Dallas Beauty School last month I took an amazing class with Ed Daily, RN, the Senior Global Trainer for Young Living, who highlighted the importance of self-care ideas that can help you now!
A healthy body = A healthy mind
Remember you are the author of your own health!
It’s up to you – how do you choose to create your days so you feel vibrant and alive?
Even with a busy schedule one can begin to take baby steps to better health and beauty.
Stress – 75% of doctor visits are stress related. What can we do each day for more wellness in our lives?
- Young Living Frankincense or Sacred Frankincense oil is a perfect high frequency oil to start your day….take a drop or two into your palm and rub your hands together……breath in the aroma…..feel your feet on the ground, and feel your spine elongate as you stretch to stand tall.
- Give thanks and gratitude for your healthy body.
- This is a perfect time for an affirmation and prayer if you choose.
Even if you only have a few minutes the brain changes from a meditation….the gray matter increases…….the myelin sheath thickens, and just inhaling deeply lights up part of the brain. You will feel more energized and ready to start your day!
- step out in nature and breath in the fresh air.
- If you can’t get there, diffuse Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil or Sacred Mountain oil blend and let the rich, woodsy aroma surround you.
3. The gut affects our brain
- What we put into our body is important! Food can be very healing or not. Be an informed consumer.
Sugar is 8 times more addictive than cocaine. Limit your intake. Begin to release gluten and dairy – replace with more fiber.
Ed’s top “favs” include:
- Essentialzymes–4 is an excellent multispectral enzyme complex that aids in the digestion of fats, proteins, fiber, and carbohydrates. Great for heavy meals.
- Detoxzyme capsules – works well with the body to support and maintain digestive health.
- Juvaspice – a simple but amazing way to not only add flavor to your meals and cooking, but this is also an advanced phytonutrient-fiber supplement!
4. Restful sleep helps us to look and feel our best.
- Diffuse in the bedroom- Tangerine, Orange, Cedarwood, Lavender, or Stress Away, just to name a few. Experiment and see which one is right for you to promote a deep and restful sleep.
- Lightly spray your pillow with Lavender. (mix a few drops in a spray bottle with pure water) I like to spray my bedroom as well.
- A warm bath with essential oils added to sea salt or Epsom salt, before bedtime helps with relaxation.
- Keep the room dark and cool.
- NO ELECTRONICS in the bedroom.
5. Movement for better health!
- Yoga and/or stretching in the morning is great for strength, flexibility and mobility.
- If you sit during the day, stretching will help to elongate the spine to keep your posture in alignment. Some take a break every hour and do five minutes of stretching.
- Also of note – documented by a Harvard University study… stretching and movement help to relieve insomnia.
- Lavender oil is calm and relaxing for Hatha yoga sessions. Breathing in the scent of Stress Away is very relaxing for Savasana and meditation.
- Sandalwood oil has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, yoga and meditation. The Young Living Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil is a perfect choice.
6. Find your right “tribe.”
- A loving support group is essential for happiness.
- Cultivate friends and companions that are accepting and supportive of you.
- Your life is a sum total of all your choices- hang out with those that are healthy.
