What’s Missing in Your Self-Care Routine?

Years ago, I had a friend who was married to a rich guy & drove a Mercedes Benz.

One time, at a party, she told us that her husband had bought her a Jaguar when they got married. She had only had it for a few months.

One day, when she was getting off the highway, she noticed that there was smoke coming out of the hood. She pulled off the ramp & got out right away. The engine was fried.

“I don’t like Jaguar,” She declared. “I have no idea what all of those lights are for,” she added.

She was lucky that it was only a car & that he was rich.

Just like an expensive sports car, your body is a machine that requires maintenance to run at its best. You can replace a car, but you can’t replace your body. What warning signals are you unknowingly ignoring?

One simple way to care for your car is to make sure that the tires are inflated; that way, they last longer & you get better gas mileage.

One simple thing you can do for yourself is to not carry any stress. You can manage your stress & reduce tension with this simple exercise at the end of each day.

If you are not familiar with tapping, start with these two videos:

It will help you have less aches & pains, sleep better & enjoy life more.

How to calm yourself when you are in a tough spot

2 comments

There are times when the stress of life gets too much. Your body is tense. You don’t sleep well. You get depressed. Things just don’t go your way. Everywhere you turn, something bothers you & someone bothers you.

There’s no ease to be found in the moment.

Recently, I went through a week just like that. It was a really long week. I had been travelling more than usual. There was paper piled up everywhere. My to-do list was several pages long. I’d also been doing in-depth research on trauma & the stories that I read were quite disturbing.

I thought that I was doing a good job managing stress, by using every healing technique that I know of. During the day I felt fine, but in the middle of the night, the tension in my body would wake me up.

It was then I decided to do something that I hadn’t done in a while; something that I cycle through every now and then. That’s the technique I’m sharing with you in the video below with simple sounds and movements.

Try this and let me know your experience by leaving a comment below.

Peace & blessings to you!

Tips for a Stress-Free Thanksgiving

1 comment

 

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Meal planning is fiercely underway. Festivity is in the air. All of the preparation can be very stressful, especially if you are hosting a large gathering at your place.

Then, there’s the gathering itself, the people, and the food. Will the food come out right? Will everyone get along? For some, there’s an added concern of indigestion and challenging bodily functions, even while our mouths water over the image of pies and turkeys.

With any feast, there are three essential bodily concerns: your energy level, your body’s ability to digest food, and your ability to withstand stress during family get-togethers and preparing for one of the year’s busiest meals!

To shape your digestion and prepare your body ahead of time, try some of these energy exercises to keep you relaxed and calm, so that you can really enjoy your Thanksgiving!

  1. De-Stress the Body
    To cope with the stress of food prep and intricate family dynamics, you can stroke the area behind your ears to calm yourself. This movement is similar to tucking your hair behind your ears. Do it as often as possible.
  2. Boost Energy For more energy to handle chores and guests, you can simply massage a couple of points under your collarbones. Locate the tip of the collarbone under your throat and, moving down and out an inch, massage the points on both sides of the body.
  3. Beef Up the Digestion
    To give your stomach a hand while it works overtime during this time of the year, massage the lower edge of your breast tissue, starting from the sternum (middle of the chest) and moving in a semi-circle to the sides of the rib cage. For women, this is the path along your bra line. For men, this is a half-moon area within two inches around your nipples.

Starting today, take some time every day to do these simple and quick exercises. When Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll be equipped with both skills and a better body to really enjoy the gathering, the people and the food.

Happy Thanksgiving!
