With our ever busy schedules and lifestyles, keeping the mind, body and spirit healthy is a very huge challenge. I have been quite stressed these past few weeks but I kept pushing to balance taking care of my daughters and attending to the demands of my customers. However, when I checked my BP on Friday, I knew I had to treat myself to a relaxing break and I'm glad to say, I feel so much better. Stress is a Mess and over time, stress can lead to serious health issues such as obesity, depression and even death. So I thought to share some wellness tips I read up and practised over the holidays:

Get Physical – Exercise not only helps you build muscle, lose weight and gain self-confidence, but helps in maintaining a healthy heart. You don't need to spend hours at the gym to achieve this. From strength training and cardio workouts, to morning/evening walks - anything that gets your heart pumping will benefit your health.
Eat Healthy – Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants to fight stress hormones.

Laugh out Loud – Health-increasing hormones like endorphins are released into your body when you laugh. Additionally, laughter works your abdominal muscles.

Get Plenty of Sleep – Between work, family and extra activities, it’s sometimes difficult to get the necessary 6 to 8 hours of sleep. Be sure to avoid caffeine and exercise before bedtime. Instead, try reading a book.
Regular check-ups – Going to the doctor only when you’re sick isn’t ok. For both your physical and mental well-being, it’s wise to have a routine annual physical examination.
Make time for recreation and don't forget to breathe. Inhaling a deeply for 5 seconds then exhaling for another 5 seconds can help clear your mind and enhance blood circulation.
Cheers to a healthy week!

Day 1 of the Code 9 training with NYPD. We are blessed to be asked back to work with some of New York’s Finest. Thank you to the amazing men and women from the EAU (Employee Assistance Unit) for bringing Code 9 back and working so hard to help their men and women. Pictured here is the EAU team and Code 9 holding up the suicide awareness patch from Mass Art Police. #NYPDSTRONG thank you @massartpolice #code9project #code9team #code9family #code9share #teamwork #nypd #nypdstrong #stresseducation #ptsdawareness #massartpolice #weareinthistogether #youarenotalone

While stress may build resilience there is a universal law that the harder you are on anything the faster it breaks down. This law can be seen in your body, mind and relationships. While psychological fortitude and physical strength is adapted through challenge, in the absence of rest, support, resolve and contentment we may easily get stuck on overdrive. Our human doing culture may also leave us motivated by lack, fear and not-enoughness, contributing to FOMO and survival mode. When we are constantly motivated by fear (cortisol/Adrenalin) and drive (dopamine)we actually become less able to feel soothed and content (oxytocin). Our senses may become over stimulated, and our nervous systems wired. Slowing down, facilitating relaxation, un-cluttering the heart, and being with our moment-to-moment experiences in a way that is neither rejecting, hustling, or clinging may be some of the most powerful medicine for the body, mind and planet.
Bumble bee breathing is a simple technique that utilizes breath, vibration and touch to soothe the body and mind through vagal stimulation. What happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. The Vegas nerve controls the parasympathetic nervous response (opposite of fight and flight) allowing us to more into a responsive mode where we can receive pleasure, feel safe and soothed without doing or achieving anything.

At some point, we have all had that experience at work when one of our colleagues departs on holiday or resigns from the business entirely. Suddenly we are expected to take on their work and pick up the slack. We are still completing the tasks of our role and now we are having to complete the tasks of another. We still have the same amount of time in our day and this sends us into overdrive; our mind and body working furiously to keep up. What can often start off as temporary change, can soon become permanent. As a result, we begin to activate our bodies natural Fight or Flight response. This might be a noticeable feeling at the time (feeling stressed), however there are many other physiological changes occurring out of our awareness that can soon become our normal state.
.
This is just one example of how we activate the stress response in the workplace, however in reality, we can have these same reactions to organisational changes, interpersonal conflicts, poor management practices, long hours, work travel, shift work, workplace harassment and poor communication in general.
.
For most people we spend a third of our lives at work and this can mean that we are constantly in a state of stress (sometimes without our conscious knowing) without having effective stress management skills. Symptoms of stress can present in many ways, however we have a habit of seeing the symptom/s and trying to "fix" them without addressing the REAL CAUSE.
.
Whilst we may not have control over changes to our workload, our organisational environment and the colleagues around us; we DO have control over OURSELVES. Understanding your mind and the powerful effects of your thoughts (positive and negative) is the first step to managing or eradicating stress. One way to develop an understanding of the mind is through meditation or mindfulness practice. If you are new to it, try spending 5-10 minutes per day focusing your attention on ONE thing (this may be your breath, an object, or a word that you repeat to yourself internally). Don't let your work consume your mind and dictate your health

I love diffusing these two oils when I am feeling stressed or anxious to help bring me back to calm. Stress does us no favours and harms our bodies. Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Feeling tired and worn out? Are you ready to do something about it? Please join me in a new online stress program starting April 30th. This 3 week program will give you some education and tools to get you back on track. Check out the link in my bio for all the details. Would love to have you join us!!!

Such an absolute honor to connect with the students of Freeport High School on the science of stress and anxiety today🙏🏽
•••
Such an inspired group of minds, and such an incredible community of teachers, parents, and administrators to support them on their development path.
•••
The statistics on anxiety, stress, and depression in our country are staggering.
•••
Yet, I haven’t heard an even fairly cogent definition of any of the above words. (The students and I spent nearly 15 minutes working to create a collective definition of the word “stress” and the word “anxiety” from which we could begin to build a dialogue, and, ultimately, a mental model and proactive training system for managing these states.)
•••
This is how little we talk stress and anxiety. The same goes for depression. And for fear.
•••
It was inspiring, promising, and deeply rewarding to connect with the students on the basic biology of stress and anxiety, and how we can willfully influence the physiological states that we inhabit.
•••
A major dose of appreciation to the students, faculty, and school board members who helped to make the event happen. And thank you to the many teachers and thought leaders who have informed our work including @hubermanlab @iamunscared @preparetoperform @iceman_hof @buteykoclinic
•••
Here’s to creating replicateable and scalable training models for managing stress, anxiety, and depression which put the power into our hands as individuals and as a community❤️ #stress #stressbetter #schools #education #stresseducation #breathe #breathebetter #cns #nervoussystem #plasticity #emotionalagency #state #learn #collaborate #community #thedistanceproject
