Sacred Health Offerings

This morning I was preparing my space before I started my blog writing for the day. I have 3 current blogs so I try to write at least one or two, sometimes three posts in a day. Anyhow, while I was getting ready I thought that I would share a part of what I do for my morning health routine and things I do throughout the entire day to remind myself to add in more of the things that add to my health regime in a positive way.

In the picture above is my morning warm lemon water with honey which is in one of my favorite little glass pots from the thrift store. And behind it is a carafe of water I drink from when I need water . I like to drink it from this stainless steel wine glass (also a thrift store find) because it makes the act or art of drinking it almost sacred to me and is a great visual reminder when I walk by.

I do think of any act that I do for the betterment of my health overall as sacred. My body is my temple and I am learning that the more sacred I make it, the more by body and soul both appreciates and receives it.

This morning, as part of my health routine, I listened to positive youtube videos and this one from Robin Sharma

called “How To 100x Your Productivity In A World Of Distraction” where he talks about our addiction to distraction. It seemed fitting for me today and I also was able to tie it into my thoughts around this blog post.

Where do we get distracted around doing things for our health? Maybe we were going to go for a walk after dinner but we started checking Facebook and then it got too late. Or maybe, we had great intentions of making that new healthy recipe for dinner, but we got distracted with texting someone and ran out of time so we just threw something together healthy or not.

So to bring this in for a landing the point I am trying to make with the water carafes, glasses, and teapot, is that it sets a definite intention for me. It reminds me to focus and to bring about, and to actually implement some healthy actions and to make them ‘sacred’.

My sister told me a story once of where, at her work, when it’s lunch time, she puts on her desk a little teapot that signifies to her that it is indeed time to break for lunch and to en-JOY the time and to en-JOY her lunch break. The teapot is the sacred piece that sets the intention for her to focus on the moment.

I have never forgotten her story and have implemented that philosophy in my own life.

I hope this blog post inspires you to find ways to help add intention and focus to your healthy daily additions. πŸ™‚

Vitamin ‘S’ The Most Important Vitamin of All Time!!!!!!

Vitamin S is the most important vitamin and nutrient for the body, mind and soul, and yet many people do not get enough of it.

I thought with February being heart month, this would be a good time to discuss this important nutrient.

In my years of coaching I have found that so many people suffer from a deficiency of this vitamin.

What is this key nutrient?

It is Self-Love! Self-Love is the most important nutrient for us and it is the one we struggle with the most.

Since February is all about the heart, why don’t we all commit to being our own Valentine? To working at loving ourselves more and judging less?

Just think we could save so much precious time and energy doing things we en-JOY and feeling good instead of wasting our precious time by using it up in self criticism and judgement. You all know what I am talking about here. πŸ™‚

I have  written before on self-love so to keep this simple, here is the link:

Life Coaching, Mindfulness, Your Amazing Life

Mindfulness & Chocolate :-)

Mindfulness is a state of being that allows one to both connect with and be present with self and the environment around them. It is a way of being centered or grounded and connected.

Think of mindfulness as a moment by moment connection to thoughts, feelings, perceptions, senses, and outside stimuli. This concept may sound stimulating but it is actually the opposite. Mindfulness allows us to detach from judgement or conditional thinking. It is more like becoming an observer; an observer of self and the things and experiences around us.

Mindfulness can be experienced in many ways. One way is through meditation. Meditation allows the stream of consciousness to flow and float on by as the observer (You), silently watches or listens. This is a fine example of mindfulness.

Another easy way to practice mindfulness is when walking. Purposely experience and be aware of each step you take. A great place to practice this is in a park or in the wilderness. Observe yourself planting your foot down each time you take a step. Feel the earth beneath you, listen to the sound the step makes, feel your foot connect to the earth, observe how the ground feels beneath your foot, and observe the overall experience.

One of my favorite mindfulness exercises is with food. Take a piece of chocolate for example. Everybody loves chocolate. Take a bite of chocolate and truly experience it. Feel the texture of the chocolate as it melts in your mouth, delight in the taste, savour the flavour, and connect with the experience one bite at a time. chocolate lips

Mindful eating is a very healthy addition to one’s lifestyle as it let’s the body appreciate and be thankful for the food, especially when it involves nutritious and life enhancing foods full like fruits and vegetables. When one connects to the energy of β€˜live foods’ they provide even more life-giving energy and their benefits are increased.

One way that I use mindfulness is by reminding myself to slow down, watch my steps, and to not rush when I am going somewhere, especially in increment weather. One wrong move can have long term complications, so I remind myself often to move mindfully.

There are countless ways to practice mindfulness, but I will leave you with the most important thought, which is to have fun with it and end-JOY the practice of mindfulness.
