Why Our Posture Affects Our Energy Level And Our Emotions

    The last time I ran my annual Chakra Healing Class, one of the most interesting topics came up. On of the participants (thank you Steve!) mentioned that he noticed becoming more short of breath when his posture slumped. That brought on a wonderful discussion of all the different ways that poor posture literally physically affects your health… everything from dry mouth and dental issues to decreased oxygenation, decreased sleep quality and even increased ADHD symptoms.   But posture affects more than just our physical body… it affects our spirit.       In class I shared a link …

  Last week I shared with you a few tips on how to release weight that accumulates during times of stress, which happens to most of us over the holiday season. Stress weight gain is different from standard weight gain because it is stress-hormone driven. So focusing on rebalancing your adrenals — not dieting — is what works best. But today, I want to give you a few more tips on releasing regular, non-stress related, weight gain. Normal weight gain over time usually reflects a decrease in metabolism, so I’ve got a fantastic list of actionable tips — taken directly …

How Grounding Quickly Reverses The Effect Trauma Has On Our Health

Living with stress can have serious long term implications on our health.  But it doesn’t have to. It’s natural for our bodies to go through times of trauma and stress and then rebound to full health.  There are lots of things you can do to mitigate stress and trauma and prevent them from leaving lasting imprints on your body that ultimately deteriorates your health. Which is important, because if we don’t release the traumas and stressors that we experience, our cells, organs, tissues and physical body as a whole literally changes. This is the study of epigenetics — and I’ve …

Moving Your Body Helps Your Brain Function Better, Immediately. Here’s How

    A recent medical study caught my eye, so today I am excited to share it with you here.   Researchers were looking at how movement helps to boost memory, and found that there are literally immediate benefits to your memory function after exercising just once. Published September 2020 in Scientific Reports, this study finds that one session of exercising (cycling on a stationary bike was the exercise used in this study) significantly improved motor sequence memory — immediately! This is super encouraging, because it was not looking at just the long term benefits from exercise (which of course …

Your 2022 Healing Mantra, Say It With Me

  Hello you! Welcome to 2022. This is just a remind for you to remember as you start a new year of your life: your body is completely new — inside and out — every few years. All of your organs (except for one) completely regenerates, repairs, and optimizes on a continuous basis. Some parts of your body are so fresh and new that they are only one day old… the cornea of your eye, for example. Your cornea can completely regenerate every 24 hours. Some parts are a little older… the lining of your intestines, for example, are about …
