Water and Stress Reduction: Sipping Stress Away 07/07/2021

Water and Stress Reduction: Sipping Stress Away

I actually first learned about how effective water is in reducing stress and anxiety from the book Burnout; by: Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski. But this article sums up a similar notion.

https://www.webmd.com/diet/features/water-stress-reduction

Water and Stress Reduction: Sipping Stress Away The link between water and stress reduction is well documented. All of our organs, including our brains, need water to function properly. If you’re dehydrated, your body isn’t running well -- and that can lead to stress.

[07/31/20]   PRACTICE CLIENT OFFERING:
I am currently accepting pregnant and postpartum practice clients for long distance intuitive energy work. The goal of this work is to help you embody a deeper trust in your innate wisdom, power, and intuition. The sessions focus on bringing healing attention to the Chakras and receiving intuitive guidance through this connection to your energy body.

The intention during prenatal sessions is to bring insight to the transformational life changes of your motherhood journey; helping you connect more fully with your soulful and unique expression of yourself as a mother. This is a time for reflection on deeper questions you may have moving forward towards your birth and beyond.

With sessions taking place during postpartum time, the intention rests in a gentle facilitation of healing and recovery after birth as well helping integrate new ways of life and new aspects of being that accompany early motherhood. It is a time to receive, relax, and replenish.

Practice sessions are free for a limited time and conducted over the phone via Zoom or Facebook Messenger (when possible). Please allow 1.5 to 2 hours for your session time. Limited space is available.

Message me for more information!

Thriving Now

A great way to shift your mood! It is a lot more simple than it looks at first. Easy to do once you get it.

thrivingnow.com Thriving Now - Transform Your Emotional World... Live, Laugh, and Love with Confidence

[03/26/20]   If you have trouble at a muscular level while your massage therapist's office is temporarily closed; these are a few things you can do:

1. Use Arnica and magnesium products of your particular preference (such as topical arnica gel or epsom salt baths).

2. Notice what feelings are associated with the area of concern. Let these feelings have a voice. Feel into them and then breathe them out.

3. Use hydrotherapy. Ice newly inflamed areas for up to 10 minutes or warm tight areas with microwavable rice bags or hot baths.

4. Use self massage tools (gently!!) or ask your quarantine partner to rub the area if it feels safe to do so. Even a light touch can be helpful. A little love can go a long way.

[03/25/20]   Relieving Stress in Uncertain Times
PART 3
Laugh and live with pleasure:

Watch more comedy than news. Being too serious can take you out of your heart and into your head. Lightening the mood can help you be both more ethical and intuitive. Spend time doing things that feel good and not just doing chores and projects. Let yourself stop thinking about the potentials for some time if you can. Do things that get you into your body instead. Hot baths, stretching, walks in nature, sitting in the sun a bit on a warm day, gardening, and eating healthy and fun food.

[03/25/20]   Relieving Stress in Uncertain Times:

Part 2. Be Present:

It may sound cliche, but living life in a mindful way can help you relax. Typically we are in a hurry with our busy lives. Or at least caught up in our usual routines. But now we have the opportunity to slow down. When we are in each activity we do completely, giving our full attention to the task or play at hand, we are caring for ourselves. Notice how doing something with your whole self and whole body feels. When you can not do this (if it is not a practical reason), go back to suggestion number 1 and check in with what you might be feeling under the surface.

On a side note, it wasn't an easy task to write this post in a mindful manner while parenting a 2 year old! So it is just about doing what we can!

[03/25/20]   Relieving Stress in Uncertain Times Part #1:

Pause before Projects:

If you are socially distancing and staying at home you might have thought you could accomplish much more. But there is an air of anxiety in the world and even if you aren't worried about the virus or financial consequences, that energy is out there (as we are all connected, right?). Your body can take this personal or social anxiety on, especially if you are empathic. And it can be subtle...until it's not. So take moments frequently throughout the day just to check in with your body and let yourself feel what's there. Just be with it. Let it have a voice... what would it say? Then, use your breath to release it. Given how much attention is going to the emergent situation both emotionally and mentally, it may be better to set reasonable expectations (if any) of what we can accomplish and focus instead on caring for ourselves and each other.
