Do you want to
feeling drained and depleted? Are you losing your vitality, your health, your “spark”
and want to reclaim it?
Most people want greater health, more energy, and vitality, but are battling with
hectic schedules and no real time to overhaul their lives. Below I share 9 simple
steps to total wellness that will get you on your way to transforming your mind, body, and soul.
Replenish your Energy
Energy is essential in this sleep-deprived, overstretched, high-speed world. How do we recharge our batteries when there is a constant drain on our resources?
Care for your Skin
Skin is the body‘s mirror of our inner health and wellness, both physical and emotional. For example, prolonged stress can affect appearance and accelerate aging of the skin.
Revitalise your Spirit
Many of us go through the day with so many responsibilities that we don’t have even a minute to care for ourselves. Meeting deadlines at work, taking care of the kids, responding to that demanding client–we react and respond to the needs of others. It’s time to do some kind things to honour yourself.
Revamp your Diet
We are a culture of extremes and our diets are no exception. Many people are either “on” a healthy eating program, doing everything right and going to the gym faithfully, or they’re living on coffee and fast food. But there is an in-between.
Cleanse your Mind and Body
Our minds and bodies are constantly processing food, drink, thoughts, and emotions. In our 100-miles-per-minute world, we can easily feel overwhelmed. I’d like you to take one day every week or month to stop and clear the mental and physical burden. These helpful suggestions can keep you feeling vital and refreshed.
Improve your Digestion
Do you inhale your food? Are you so busy that even chewing seems like a luxury? Poor digestion is often at the root of many chronic ailments, such as low energy, pain, inflammation, arthritis, and allergies.
The beauty of alternative medicine is that it appreciates how connected the physical body is with our minds, emotions, and spirit. We are also connected to our surroundings and to each other – so it’s crucial you strengthen your connections with your family, friends, colleagues, as well as to nature. By doing this, you solidify your place in this network and help others – and yourself – feel loved and supported.
De-stress your Schedule
You want to, but where to begin? Work stress alone has been linked to depression, heart disease, and other ailments. Short of changing jobs, how can you de-stress to help you decompress? How do you make time for friends, family, and leisure?
