Healing is a multi-layered journey involving body, mind and spirit. To fully reclaim and maintain good health, it’s essential to delve into all areas of your life.
Remember to breathe. Take five deep breaths whenever you remember. Especially when stressed. Pay more attention to your out-breath. Let it gooooooo.
Prioritize sleep. Buy the best bed and bedding you can afford, ideally organic. Go to bed early for the most restorative sleep. 9 hours is not indulgent.
Nourish yourself and the planet with organic, nutrient-dense food. Emphasize vegetables, grass fed animals and healthy fats. Drink lots of pure water.
Keep m o v i n g. Lift weights, walk in nature, do yoga, dance. Sweat daily if possible. Sit less, move more.
Heal & Seal Your Gut
Tend to your inner garden: balance your gut bugs and plug the leaks. Your health & wellbeing are a reflection of your relationship with your whole environment.
Eliminate toxins, including your food triggers, processed foods, negative thoughts, chemicals in body & home care products, mercury fillings, and relationships.
Get tested and treated for hidden infections, like Lyme, candida, and mycoplasma. Embrace healthy lifestyle habits, consider herbal anti-microbials and raise your metabolism.
What can you let go of, minimize or delegate? Healing happens when you relax. Negative emotions, environments and people can sabotage your health. Choose peace.
Forgive everyone. Forgive yourself. The past is past. Free yourself from unresolved anger, sadness and grief. Still feel a charge? Repeat.
Ask for help. Being vulnerable makes you more lovable. Find a functional or integrative practitioner. Join a nourishing group or community. Prioritize friendships. Laugh more.
Say Thank You
Want to feel happier? Say Thank you, even when you feel criticized. See the blessings in everything. Even unwanted symptoms are just messengers encouraging you to dig deeper.
Love yourself first. Be responsible for your own happiness. Embrace your inner child and go on playdates. Create a list of things that fill you up. Do at least one thing a day.
Know Your Why
People with purpose have better health outcomes, more resilience and joy. What’s your North Star? Be your purpose. Stay open. Choose peace. Stay hopeful.
