Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday!
 
Have you ever noticed how throughout the day our breathing tends to get faster and shorter?
 
Over the last fifteen years or so I have worked hard on re-learning how to breathe the way that our bodies are supposed to breathe—slow and full.
 
When we take short, quick breaths it is usually a sign our body is in distress, or fight or flight. The more we breathe like that, the higher our cortisol goes.
 
In fact, I read a recent research article that stated people who have poor posture and as a result smaller breaths (less lung capacity when you are hunched), have higher cortisol levels. People who have straight posture and as a result greater lung capacity, have lower cortisol.
 
Cortisol=disease.
 
So take a REALLY long breath in, and a REALLY long breath out. The exhale is most important.
 
Check out the benefits:
  • Deep breathing can improve your energy level.
  • Deep breathing slows your heart rate.
  • Deep breathing helps to clean out the lungs.
  • Deep breathing reduces anxiety.
 
Additionally, when you add essential oils to your space or your body you can help to increase respiratory function. I love eucalyptus, ravensara, melaleuca, lemon and peppermint.

Toxin Free Living

Have you ever thought about all the toxins you come into contact throughout a given day? And I don’t just mean physically. 😉

Over the last few years I have learned how to swap out natural things for the common and usually toxin filled things both in my household but also personal care. AND, I have created habits to get rid of emotional toxins, too.

Here is a sampling of what I have done:

🌼100% cleaning with oils and natural ingredients
🌼make my own body butter with shea & coconut oil
🌼a drop of lemon in my water everyday
🌼probiotics every day
🌼consume mostly organic foods
🌼twice yearly cleanse (more to come on that soon)
🌼wash my produce with lemon EO
🌼digestive enzymes
🌼diffusers in almost every room for clean air
🌼time in nature to re-fuel and connect
🌼wish angry drivers peace while driving
🌼limit screen time (what a toxic overload!)
🌼minimal TV, and never crime or drama
🌼practice discernment and have boundaries
🌼only headlines of news to stay informed
🌼give others the benefit of the doubt
🌼love as much as I can

Do you have toxins in your life? What can you do to eliminate them?

Getting Ready for Germs

I work in a variety of long term care centers and I touch A LOT of people in my job. Also, my daughter attends a day program for adults with disabilities and she goes into nursing homes and serves food.

This means we are among LOTS of germs.

I apply on guard every day! And I diffuse it at home daily AND I use the sanitizing hand spray.

Guess what? Neither of us has had a single cold or illness in FOUR YEARS!?

Love Language

This has been an incredible month of oils/yoga/love in my world in so many ways. Sometimes I am humbled at the life I get to live and the amazing things I get to witness.

💗

Some may think oils are just hippie stuff or the latest fad, and that’s okay. I know the power of them physically and emotionally. And then when you add in pure love, there is magic. For me, my passion for essential oils is about making a difference in other people’s lives and spreading love.

💗

A dear friend’s daughter has been fighting for her life the last three weeks and I have been so honored to be invited into this intimate scene to rub oils on her feet and hands while she has been in the ICU. This sacred time is so incredibly special to me and I feel so blessed that the family trusts me and my energy with their beautiful girl.

💗

Also this month, the joy and happiness that my beautiful senior citizens felt when I handed them their own little blend makes all the hard work so worth it. For some who have so little, a 5ml bottle of goodness can be so much.

💗

I believe that we each have a beautiful gift (and responsibility) to share light in the world. My way happens to be through yoga and oils…what is your way?

💗
