Mindful Moments ~

Life can be filled with stressors. Stress increases inflammation in the body and can seriously affect our health. We should all take a moment and find our zen and decrease stress. Here are some helpful tips: 😂 Stay positive and laugh daily. Laughter has been found to lower levels of stress and increase happy hormones. 🧘‍♀️🙏Meditation and Prayer. Deep breathing and exercise decreases blood pressure. Prayer, can also relax the mind and body. 🏃‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️Exercise. Every time you are physically active, whether you take a walk or play tennis, your body releases mood-boosting chemicals called endorphins. 🤳Unplug. It's impossible to escape stress when it follows you everywhere. Cut the cord. Avoid emails and TV news. Take time each day — even if it's for just 10 or 15 minutes — to escape from the world. 🛀Find ways to take the edge off your stress. Simple things, like a warm bath, listening to music, or spending time on a favorite hobby, can give you a much-needed break from the stressors in your life.

There are numerous health and social benefits by walking your dog a few times a week. You get to meet new people and bump into old friends. The dogs get to socialise and it is a win win for all. This all decreases stress as well as being vitally important for your dog’s health and your own.

Nope this is NOT a pharmaceutical drug. This is NATURE! It is what happens when you spend time barefoot on the earth, called GROUNDING or EARTHING. 🌿⁣

It’s been studied since 2000, and the benefits are so amazing! The earth contain electrons that when were are in direct constant with them they are transferred to our body, improving and restoring our bioelectricity! These electrons are basically antioxidants and essential for our body’s physiology. ⚡️⁣

If you want to maximize the absorption of the electrons, just add some water! As you know, water helps to conduct electricity! 💁🏻‍♀️ Our feet have a built in area that is more absorbing to these electrons, however ANY skin to ground contact will work. 🦶🏼 ⁣

So not just being in nature helps our body and mind but INTERACTING with and CONNECTING with nature that is essential for our health and wellness. 🌎 ⁣

Give it a try for 20min a day consistently and see what happens in your body! ✨⁣

PS: this is why I prefer really rocks over a fabricated “rock” mat. Nature always wins! 🌱⁣

Sometimes you need some extra time for yourself. Sometimes you have to be a bit more kind and embrace yourself a bit closer, stronger and warmer.
That's okay.
You have this time.
You're allowed to spend it on yourself
You deserve to spend it with yourself.
Writing this, I wonder why in the English language we "spend" time?
Whatever your association with this terminology is: you get my point.
Take excellent care of yourself. Today and every day!
Sending much love and light,

Some of us have a tendency to overlook many of the things we have accomplished and think to ourselves we have not done enough. Sound familiar? 👋 Thinking this way increases the stress response in our bodies. 🚫 Take a moment and write a list of the things you are proud of from the last 2 months. This will help put into perspective how much you have really done, which will help decrease the stress response in your body! ✔ ⬇️in stress response helps to increase your metabolism! 😉

Take a moment for yourself and make a list!

I did it! I decorated for Christmas!
And I’m not mad about it 🎄

Planning... I’m telling you is the key to decreasing stress.
Plan ahead, make a list, put on your calendar. Then start getting those things done. So what if it’s early? By who’s rules?
I’m going into next week, stress free. Looking forward to family time and making memories. All because I planned ahead.
Trust me, you will feel less stress the more you plan ahead and be intentional with your time!

My nephew’s daughter Piper, who’s in preschool, seized an opportunity to read ABC Worry Free to her sister Evie. Nice effort Piper!
The early years make a big difference of language acquisition and reading skills—vocabulary development during preschool years is linked to later success in school. The gains made by reading just 20 minutes outside of school are staggering—kids who read or who are read to are exposed to an additional 1,823,000 words! All the more reason to read to your child, grandchild, sister, brother, niece, nephew, cousin or friend.
My friends and I share our love for reading with each other, especially at our book club meetings. Whether you read to yourself, are read to or read to someone else—just read!

Add a little Zen to your holidays! Book a private session for you and your colleagues! 🎄. #decreasestress #holidayparty #zenlife #yogaparty #nonheated #heated #restorative #chairyoga #relax #unwind #holidayfun #somethingdifferent

Do you know the dangers of visceral fat?

I posted this on my business @dexafit_lasvegas page but thought it was an important enough topic to discuss.

First, a real quick description of the 2 kinds of fat we have:
subcutaneous and visceral

S U B C U T A N E O U S fat is the kind you can pinch, feel and see.

V I S C E R A L fat surrounds your organs and is under your abdominal muscle - so you can’t see/feel it like subcutaneous fat.

There are 2 ways to measure visceral fat. One way is to take a waist to hip ratio (ideally you want it less than 0.8). The other more accurate measurement is through a DXA scan where it actually quantifies the amount you have.

Visceral fat is known as the “bad fat” as it’s associated with long term medical conditions including: heart attacks, stroke, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cancer, to name just a few.

Good news: you can lower it! 😃

It’s highly responsive to improved #nutrition, regular #exercise and #reducedcortisol (#lessstress and improved quality of sleep)!

Do you check email while on a conference call?
Do you pride yourself in your ability to juggle two things simultaneously?

Being Thoughtfully Fit means being fully present in the moment focusing only on the task at hand.

There’s a 17% increase in anxiety disorders in children over the last 10 years. Common triggers include: fear of making mistakes or being imperfect and pressures related to school, relationships, social media and overly busy schedules. While anxiety is normal and something everyone feels at some point, many children are worrying “too much” and repeatedly activating their stress responses.
What can we do to bring down this stat?
We must teach children about their amazing brain and how worry works—how to identify stressful triggers, what stress feels like in their body, how they typically react to stress and how to evaluate the effectiveness of their reactions. Because of the brain’s Neuroplasticity, kids can train their brain to respond to stress in new and more effective ways. We must also model and teach coping skills in school and at home.
