Are You Breathing Correctly?

 

Breathing is a gift that is given to all of us when we are birthed and when we are born.  These days breathing is taken for granted.  Many people lead busy lives and although they take breaths they are not breathing.  They do not take a moment to relax and breathe.  It is funny how the mind can work when busyness takes precedence over self-care.  The very thing that keeps us alive takes a backseat because the task at hand becomes more important.  I remember sitting in a holistic health and wellness class and the person teaching was talking about breathing.  That was the first time in all my 25 years at the time that I took that deep of a breath.

Discovering this breath was similar to when I discovered that there was more than one type of water haha.  Sometimes we have a tendency to think that everything is the same and what difference does is make?  It makes a huge difference in the quality of life.  It makes a huge difference...

Is Social Isolation From COVID-19 Causing You Stress? [Ways To Cope]

It has been about 4 months since many people have been in social isolation.  With all of the news scares going around it is no surprise to see that many people have been social distancing out of sheer fear.  You see all of these statistics on the news about how many people are dying of COVID-19 and instantly the cortisol levels of the population arise.

 

I personally have not been social distancing and I also do not believe the statistics shown on the news.  However I can empathize deeply with people around the world who's mental health has been greatly impacted by this.  I feel for people who are unfamiliar with: medical research, how viruses work, nutrition to boost immunity, and the false news narratives designed to instill fear in people.

 

People are doing as they are told because they believe that the news and people in so-called power recommending social distancing have their best interest at heart.  I thought about social distancing...

Stop People Pleasing to Boost Your Energy

People pleasing is the act of going against your authenticity and your boundaries to please another person because you feel as though if you don’t do what makes them happy, they will get upset with you. People pleasing is something that many people partake in. Over the years I have come to realize that it stems from fear and a lack of boundaries.

 

Fear sets in when you feel as though you will lose people if you speak your truth and let them know that you don’t want to attend their party, their function, or hang out with them when they may want you to. Let’s say one of your friends wanted you to go to the movies, but you were absolutely exhausted and had loads of work.

 

Out of fear you may say “yes” to that friend. You may also fear that if you say “no” there will be a conflict. This is where overthinking comes in. You are already thinking of having a potential argument and an unsatisfactory outcome.

How Can You Stay Active During A Busy Work Day

As a professional woman or an entrepreneur it can be easy to get bogged down with work. Let’s face it you have meetings, you have clients, and now that most people are home, you also have family duties. It can be extremely difficult to focus on your health and wellness. I completely get it. It can feel defeating when you make those brand new health goals to get that lean, fit body, all to realize that the day is over and you missed yet another day to workout.

 

Many women in the professional or entrepreneurial field like yourself have a tendency to put their health last because they just cannot seem to find the time in their schedule. This cycle continues for years and then the goals that were originally set are now forgotten. It is as if they have accepted that this is how their life is going to be. The business and/or workload now control their lives.

 

 

Now they feel drained and extremely low on energy because their work is their life and the needs of...

Can Exercise Reduce Your Stress Levels?

Have you have ever heard that exercise is a drug or an anti-depressant?  Well there is no exaggeration there.  Exercise releases certain chemical responses in the body that people who are addicted to drugs crave.  Exercise is a much healthier alternative to substance abuse and dealing with stress.

It is something everyone should be doing on a daily basis.  It gets you moving and not living a sedentary lifestyle.  Exercise is crucial to the health of the lymphatic system.  Your lymphatic system is closely related to your immune system.  When you are moving and not allowing yourself to be sedentary you are giving your body a chance to flush out any toxins.

When toxic waste sits in the body it creates an inflammatory response, which can raise stress levels.  An inflammatory response can also be linked to imbalance in the body.  If you are healthy, the body can eliminate the toxins.

You want to make sure you are moving every single day. ...

How To Feel Deserving

If you struggle with feeling deserving of all the good things in life you are not alone. Many people feel this way and for very specific reasons. Some people have experienced traumas that have made them feel so bad to the point where anything good feels foreign to them. Some people have experienced situations where every time something good happened to them someone put down their accomplishments and made them feel small.

 

When people treat you poorly or minimize your accomplishments it is super easy to not feel deserving. Those feelings of guilt creep in. You no longer feel worthy because someone made you feel less than. You feel as though good things are for people better than you. It is because of this mindset that you and many others sabotage the goodness that tries to enter their lives.

 

These are common behaviors and typical when abuse or neglect of some sort occurs. According to the International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice there is a relationship...

Is It That You Can't Afford Health Coaching? OR Is Health Not A Priority?

When I hear "I can't afford holistic health coaching" I actually cringe...

Here's why: As a holistic health coach I know how important it is to not only eat healthy, but live a healthy lifestyle. If both those areas are lacking in any way I know DISEASE, DEATH, and/or extremely poor quality of life is inevitable

 

SO

 

When I hear "I can't afford holistic health coaching" immediately I hear "I am not going to put myself first" AND "My health has to take a backseat". Let me tell you I have been there where I put my health on the back burner. Back when I was traveling and doing various speaking engagements I did not pay attention to my health as much. I knew my body needed rest. I knew my body wanted to eat certain foods, but I kept going against it, until ONE day it started to gradually shut down. My liver was damaged, my kidneys were not able to flush anything out, and because my body could not process protein, I started to smell like bleach.
