Everything around you affects you in some way...
Life can be overwhelming. You are on a list of med's and supplements, and not sure what you can do toward better health. We all desire to be healthy, but we get bogged down by all the information.
Working toward healing and better health is a "day to day" process, not overnight.
So are you willing to focus?
Do you look at a glass and see it half empty or half full?
It took over 4 years for me to be free of the many ailments that plagued me after a head-on collision. But today at 61 years old, I am blessed with a healthy frame of mind, take no medications, I stay active and have no plans on slowing down, Lord willing. Sure I have a few "bad" days, but I take a deep breath, look for His strength within and get back on track. So let's talk about STRESS...
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), stress is an expression of the body’s natural instinct to protect itself. While this may warn you of immediate danger, like a fast-approaching car, prolonged stress CAN negatively affect your physical and emotional health.
In this first post on Becoming A Healthy Woman, I have prepared a general outline for you to use to begin to lower your stress level and initiate a lifestyle change to reduce stress throughout your day.
We must reduce our stress level, target what we are eating, and make time for exercise or "movement" as I will call it.
Let's get stress under control.
This week, begin your "movement plan."
We are not calling it exercise!
Early morning stretching ...easy stretching for just about anyone.
Create your own Lavender Mist spray
for calming & sleep benefits...
You cannot heal if you cannot sleep. This is when the body recharges and renews.
Also use your diffuser to humidify the air, breathe easier, and help relieve cough/sinus congestion (for this I use peppermint oil).
Your "to do" list:
Follow a plan similar to the one I have outlined to get
stress under control throughout the day.
Drink plenty of water.
Begin your "movement" plan
Order your diffuser & oil's
(lavender & peppermint are 2 oil's I began using
on my journey to regaining my health)

TALK TO A DOCTOR
After 18 years working in the health field as a Med/Surg Asst, I have seen many patients visit their doctor seeking answers but leaving with only a script in hand.
I hope to encourage you to
seek out answers and then
to sit down with a doctor
who desires to help you
achieve health and wellness
naturally. Knowledge is powerful. You CAN take
control and make a
"lifestyle" change toward
better health. Be well!
