A Time of Transformation.
A Time for Conscious Cures.
Aloha Sweet Souls,
2020 has been a year like no other. We have experienced social injustices, wildfires, tsunamis, economic turmoil, a global pandemic, and that is just naming a few! It has been a time uncertainty for all of us. Now more than ever, it is important reconnect with ourselves and allow the wisdom to flow; the ever-changing current of life is not something to fight or resist. Take the time to relax and reflect. Be still. Observe the positive changes, and you will discover how to ride these changing waves with grace. It is the time of year to celebrate, so let’s open our hearts and focus on the positive each and every day as we move into 2021; the light is bright.
A new wave of energy is available to ride.
I share with you four Conscious Cures that I use daily that
will support your mental and physical well-being.
1. Nature-ize when you cannot socialize: Not being able to socialize is very stressful and can get depressing. When you’re out in Nature, you can responsibly Nature-ize and enjoy time with loved ones and friends. You can also reap the benefits of communing with plants and animals.
No matter where you are, spend as much time as you can outdoors. The power of Nature can absorb negative energy and help you through just about anything. Studies reveal Nature theory and communing with Nature have a positive effect on your physical and mental health. This could include forest bathing (shinrin-yoku), wave watching, tree climbing, gardening, fishing, skiing, and snorkeling. You can cry and scream and allow yourself to feel free. Nature holds no judgment. Find your inner peace, guidance, and strength as you climb upward and out. Leave the urban lifestyle for at least an hour a day and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. Being in Nature is free entertainment.
2. Study Nature and learn about yourself: We have a lot to learn from Nature as we rebuild our world. When you observe Nature, you can learn how to be more resourceful, balanced, and resilient. You can see how biodiversity is key to a healthy community. Each ecosystem is interdependent, but functioning as a whole, thriving on interconnectedness. Landscapes interconnect ~ a forest to a meadow ~ a pasture to the coastline. Acknowledging that everything is interdependent and interconnected, we make better choices for ourselves and the world.
3. Eat as if your life depends on it: Eating a low-carbon footprint diet matters. Build your immune system and help save the planet. Support your local farmers and enjoy nutritious regional food, knowing you are strengthening your local economy and the well-being of Mother Earth. Consuming foods that boost your mood and your immune system reduce anxiety and stress levels. Eat a diversified diet with plenty of fresh, plant-based foods: fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and whole grains, healthful fats, and quality meat and dairy. If you are vegan, it is essential to beef up other areas of your diet.
Vegan or not, add extra immune-building foods such as turmeric, ginger, citrus (especially lemons), mushrooms, peppers, garlic, and onions. Fermented vegetables, such as homemade sauerkraut and kimchi, are a boon to gut health. Foods high in selenium, vitamin D, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, B vitamins, zinc, proteins, and probiotic microorganisms are excellent choices. In times of additional stress, high-quality supplements are also a good idea.
Stress eating is terrible for our bodies and minds. During stressful times, we find ourselves overindulging or, the opposite, forgetting to eat. Neither is the correct answer. If you find yourself falling into either trap and eating crap, it’s time to do your research or speak with a nutritional coach. Avoid the use of alcohol and other addictive substances.
4. Stay hydrated: Sip stress away. The link between water and stress reduction is well documented. Our bodies are made up of 70 percent water. All of our organs, including our brains, need water to function correctly. If you’re dehydrated, your body isn’t running well — and that can lead to stress and hospitalization. The National Academy of Medicine recommends 2.7 liters (eleven cups) to 3.7 liters (almost sixteen cups) per day. Depending on your level of exercise and what you eat and drink, the quantity will vary.
Remember to treat your body and mind with love and honor.
When you do so, you are able to show up as your best self.
We all need support during these times. Ensuring that our own
bodies and minds are healthy, makes it possible for us to
share our light.
May you tend to your own garden and nurture others.
