Late winter, early spring every source of media start pumping out news about the latest spring cleanse and fad detox plan. Yes by all means once a year do a full on detox but NOT for the reason we see it plastered all over magazine covers (a flat belly). No; instead do it for you! For all the reasons the body needs a good clean out. Continue reading “Detoxify”
Weight loss, cancer prevention, heart health, antioxidants, youthful skin….
This list seems endless when we get into the health benefits of tea consumption. Blog posts, news articles and even medical journals have these bases covered; several times over! Instead, today let’s have a cup, for no better reason than pure enjoyment! Continue reading “My Love Affair With Tea!”
Many times we push, we push for things we want not often for those that we need. We push for the things that we think will be best for us. We avoid those things that are hard.
Sometimes we are pushed; pushed into directions that we never thought we would end up in. When this happens things tend to fall together in ways we never imagined. 3 years ago I never would have considered that I would be taking this direction. My blog has been many things over years. My focus has always been natural health, wellness and yoga. Now I stray. Continue reading “Food, Health, Healing”
Gluten Free Services for Food Industry
With the rise of Celiac disease and gluten intolerance many restaurants and food service facilities are choosing to offer gluten free alternatives; but how gluten free is your food really? Cross contamination and/or improper preparation can leave a patron very ill and leave your facility with bad reviews. Continue reading “Corporate Services”
I believe that each of us has the ability to be happy and healthy, naturally.
The number 1 thing I have learned is Education is our best defense. Yes there is a time and place for every type of medical intervention. Holistic Medicine and Yoga Therapy are the best in way of prevention and recovery.
Many chronic illnesses are caused by an imbalance in the natural system. Where pharmaceuticals add to this imbalance, natural therapies aim to rebalance the body to promote self healing.
Thirsty? If so you are already dehydrated! “But I drink all day long! How can I be lacking in liquids?” you ask? Drinks are not created equal. While most drinks provide the body with much needed liquids some take it away leaving the body more dehydrated then before that first sip. Continue reading “Hydrate and Feel Great!”
Health concerns of the aging population
Gentle yoga for general healthy living
Assisted yoga for therapeutic results
Every day I walk into my senior classes I am offered a new insight into a way that yoga has helped them.
Intentions: Small phrases, ideas, to hold in the back of the mind that will guide you throughout the day, week, or year. Similar to a new years resolution, an intention is a expectation of the self. Though it does differ in some fundamental ways: ” i want to lose weight” can be considered a resolution, but it is not an intention! Instead it is better to say “I will have respect for the food I consume and will take smaller portion sizes” what comes out of this intention is a healthy attitude towards food. Ultimately leading to a healthy weight balance connected to your specific body type and personality. The key here is balance in the self. The intentions must ring true to your underlying value system and be connected with key aspects of your personality.
An intention for the week: “I intend to complete 2 blog posts and spend 10 hours active this week”
An intention for the month: “I intend to keep an open mind as i move through towards a new business venture this month”
When creating an intention for the day I look ahead to see where the day is heading, as in the above example I would set this before rising in the morning on a day that will see me in difficult situations or in interactions with difficult people.
My weekly intention would be set on a Sunday, looking ahead to what needs to be accomplished versus what I want to be accomplished, keeping in mind my yearly goals! Sometimes these do not line up so well! Such as the example that I wrote. Getting in 2 hours a day of exercise when I know that writing has to be done is asking a lot. However when the intention is held things have a way of working out! The daily and weekly reasoning meld together to create an intention for the month that will show progress towards my year end goals.
These are the beginning steps to finding balance in the face of attaining goals. I hope this aids you on your journey.
I want to hear from you! What do you think? Did this help you in anyway? Ask me questions! I am always looking for new blog topics!
