>>>>>>>>>Keep Moving>>>>>>>>>>

Just finished my morning workout…..whew!! This isolation and the ending of, “our life as we knew it”, can really take a toll on our physical AND mental health.

My newest habit is to change my motion to change my E-motion! When I was single, I joined a lot of aerobic classes at the gym I had a membership at and I was also in a hip-hop dance band as a singer. I was always exercising and dancing and then I gave my life to motherhood for 22, intense years, not that I would change a thing.

But things have changed, and although I now have a college student home again and a full time high-schooler here, I realized I need some deep and lasting motivation to keep my focus positive and my mind and body in shape! I started taking up aerobic dance and dancing again, in general. What a great, playful, new adventure!

Dancing increases flexibility (make sure you stretch first:), improves posture, increases core strength and is a natural mood lifter/ anxiety dissolver. When I turn on the loud music and start moving, those around me can’t seem to help but join in, which in turn, becomes a fun family activity!

Aroma therapeutic side note: all of the citrus essential oils are really helpful at this historical, uncertain time we have found our selves in. I have made a blend of a few drops of each; lemon, orange, lime, grapefruit and bergamot essential oils in a 2 ounce spray bottle of water and then mist in each room. They naturally invigorate and are intrinsically anti-viral, anti- bacterial and immune system supporters- perfect to help prevent the spread of any virus! This particular blend also has such a tropical aroma to it so it brings back happy thoughts from happier days at the sunny beach.

So, remember to, >>>>>Keep Moving>>>>>>, however you are able and utilize the pure natural aromas God gave us to keep us healthy and living our best life, no matter how quarantined you are atm<3

I am walking this road with you and I would love to hear from you today!

Liver Detox Yoga!

I told you a few months ago that I had to detox my liver, that the liver was the culprit to my anemia and poor blood lab results. I have been drinking hot lemon water every morning and taking a liver detox supplement recommended by my doctor.

I also started doing this handy little exercise with Yoga with Adriene!  Whether you have a liver issue, or need a little detox (and we all do) this is a great, level entry workout! If you want to try to start inching in to a detox, and make a real impact on health, here are 2 easy steps;

  1. Do not eat after 7 PM. Drink warm lemon water or herbal tea only.
  2. Be in bed sleeping by 11 PM.

These 2 changes in your routine will start the process of healing in your body and helping it to calm down enough to rebuild it self.

You may want to mix a  few drops of each of these oils in with some Epsom Salt for a bath before bed as well.  marjoram, lavender, neroli, orange, chamomile, sandalwood and rose- 2 drops of each in 1 C. of Epsom salt will be calming and restorative to your body and mind. If you only have some of the oils, use as many or as little as you have.

 

Feeling Sick?

Sitting here this morning, feeling a little low and run down after the holiday. I made some tea and did some Yoga with Adriene She has a great set of videos for working out when you are not feeling well, check them out! We all need to give our bodies a rest from this busy, stressed filled world- especially at this time of year.

Feed your body with fresh citrus to boost your immune system and lighten your mood, drink some tea with raw honey, and take a little walk. Put a couple drops of of grapefruit, lemon and orange in your diffuser. Read scriptures that are related to healing, Mark 5:34 for instance, and meditate on it.

Here is to a great, healthy week! Who says you have to wait till January 1st?:-)

We would love to hear from you and book a Christmas Party for you! Remember you get 30% off as a hostess! Call today!
