Small Steps Do Matter!

This morning I was reading from Anthony Williams book “Liver Rescue” and was once again both reminded and inspired to take small steps in my day to enhance my health.

I think sometimes we lose ground and fall backward and then think why bother? Or we shame ourselves for not being as disciplined as we maybe once were in the past. Or we’ve gained weight and we shun ourselves about it, and in turn become immobilized about doing anything to balance this out.

This is what I read today that inspired me:

“People don’t get enough credit for taking care of their health. They’re taught to put so much ahead of their own well-being, which means that when they take steps to heal, they can feel almost guilty about it, like it’s not real work. They can feel like taking time to go to the farmers’ market, or to make juice or cut up fruit or order their supplements, isn’t as productive or important as if they were using that time to send emails or pay bills or check off other boxes on their to-do lists. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of thinking that caring for yourself doesn’t matter. Know that every step you take to heal has great meaning.”

I hope you found this inspiring and well for me I am off to make my cucumber juice πŸ™‚

Have a great day everyone!

Friendship, Self-Care, Self-Love

Hey πŸŽ€ π΅π‘’π“ˆπ“‰π’Ύπ‘’ πŸŽ€

“Friendship with oneself has no season”.

– Judith Schwartz

A woman hugging herself with a smile on her face and eyes closed.

How is your friendship with yourself? Have you checked in on that lately?

Our friendship with ourselves is the most important friendship we will ever have.

Are you supporting YOU?

Are you loving YOU?

Are you caring for YOU?

Are you saying nice things to YOU?

Are you doing nice things for YOU?

Are you listening to YOUR own heart?

Are you working on YOUR dreams?

I sure hope so and if not, maybe it’s time to check in with YOU! πŸ™‚

Your Amazing Life

Say YES. It’s Good For Your Health


The word yes written in the sand.

Most people are so busy with their everyday life that they don’t make time to get out of their comfort zone and do something different.

When was the last time you tried something new or challenging?

Be open to new experiences, start saying yes to yourself, and choose to do things that feel good.

Say Yes to Life. Say Yes to Love. Say Yes to Adventure. Say Yes to YOU!

Sleep

One Easy Tip For Difficulty Falling Asleep

“Sleep is like a dove. If we keep our hand calm she will sit on it. If we try to catch her, she flies away.” Paul Dubois

A dove sitting on a hand

Sleep is so important for our health. It is important not only for physical health but mental and emotional health as well.

Frustration

Sometimes when I get really frustrated about something, I think of children who are tired. We are just like children. When we are emotionally drained or exhausted, we just want to cry or whine or lash out. At least I do. πŸ™‚ This can be when sleep comes to the rescue!

Naps are Good!

I am a lover of naps and I do tend to stay up too late and to also get up early so naps help to balance out my sleep when I need help with that. I see naps as very healthy.

Don’t Fight Your Sleeplessness!

What I have learned over the years is that sleep can be evasive, just like the quote refers to. So, I have found that the best thing you can do is to not fight your sleeplessness. When I cannot sleep I say something to the effect of “It is okay that I am not sleeping, my body is still resting and this counts”. Or “It is okay that I am not sleeping, by lying here my body is healing and rejuvenating regardless”.

As a person who both studies and works with the power of the mind, I know that by saying these things and programming my mind to believe them, they work!

Do not underestimate this simple technique. If you have trouble sleeping, I encourage you to try it and to let go of the struggle. πŸ™‚

Aloe Vera, Your Amazing Life

Aloe Vera – Amazing For Summer!

My huge Aloe Vera Plant

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is an amazing plant for healing and nutrition. I am grateful to have this huge aloe vera plant that has recently given me 4 babies or pups as they are called. The babies are bigger than most aloe plants that I have seen in the past lol. You can see the one pup that I have left in the pot with its Mom.

Aloe is good for both internal use and external and you can find a lot of information on the internet about it and ways to use it.

With summer here in these parts of the world, if you don’t have an aloe plant handy for using you might want an alternative. I love this aloe vera gel for having on hand for things like sunburns, fly bites and even swimmer’s itch, which we get sometimes here in my neck of the woods.

Here is the link for the gel and if you are interested in getting some for your summer tool kit, I would love to give you a discount. Use 15OFFMA and you will get 15% off.

I hope you are as excited about the summer coming soon as I am. EnJOY!

ALemonLover, celery juice, Lemons

My Sunshine 🌞 Drink Recipe

So many people have asked me for this recipe

Every day I start my day with this drink. After drinking this delightful concoction, that I fondly call “My Sunshine Drink”, 🌞 I drink my straight celery juice and then my Isotonix Vitamins, that I have been taking faithfully for 23 years now.

I love starting the day with my Sunshine Drink 🌞. It started off as warm lemon water but now I have evolved it to a threesome of citrus fruits along with honey.

I have made a short video to show you exactly how I make my Sunshine 🌞 Drink.

Here it is, just click on the arrow and enJOY.

I hope you find this helpful and if you want more info on how to make celery juice and why it is beneficial you can learn more here:

Anxiety, Immune Health, Stress

Removing Stress One Bit At A Time!

Stress. Stress. Stress.

This morning I was messaging with one of my entrepreneurial team members about a virtual presentation for this afternoon. She is to present a short piece of information that she has been preparing for our upcoming meeting today. This person told me that she would do her best but that she did not feel well prepared.

A woman with her head in her hands in front of her laptop, looking stressed.

I said to her something to the effect that it was all good and that there were no worries. AND that if she did not feel that today was the best day to present her contribution, she could do it another day and that it was all ok. It was all okay.

I really believe that lowering or removing pressures in our life, is hugely helpful for our health and well-being. Even in business, I think we can make things work with less stress on ourselves. I am all about being in JOY, and it is no different in business.

π’₯❁𝒴

The more we can lower stress and expectations that we feel pressured by, the better it is for our health and well-being. It is so important, especially at this time in history, to move away from stress and fear and to move toward peace of mind and comfort. β™₯ By lowering stress we also show love and support to our immune system. β™₯

What about you?

Do you find that you put too much pressure on yourself? Or that you have too many expectations or demands put on you? Do you put these on yourself?

Even letting go of one small expectation or thing that you feel you ‘must do’, can bring a huge relief to your mind and may even be beneficial for your physical health when it comes to the body’s stress response.

When I learned about adrenaline and how it can be very toxic to our bodies, especially when it is continually running rampant, it helped me to become more conscious of lowering my stress bit by bit, and now I go through my day more aware of little ways to de-stress and to lower expectations of myself that cause me stress.

I hope you found this helpful and I wish for you less stress and more JOY in your day to day living.

And please never forget that you can and should reach out if your are feeling that you need help with your mental health. It is mental health week here in Canada and there are lots of supports and people that are always available to help.

This is from Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx Canada and I think that it is worth sharing here and a that it is a great reminder and it may inspire you or offer hope. πŸ™‚

Sun, Sunshine

Fun in the Sun! Oh ya.

I ran across this article yesterday and it is about schools of the past and fresh air and sunshine. I thought it was brilliant.

Here is the link to full article with cool pictures of days gone by:

I often think of how amazing the sun is and if you could package its energy in a little bottle of Sunshine, it would be so cool wouldn’t it? MMM MMM just think about the beautiful sun and be sure to soak up some of its glorious frequency when you can. πŸ™‚
