7 Ways to Make Stress Leave Your Life so You Get to Move on To The Business of Feeling Better

There are so many articles about staying away from stress! I’m writing this article for people who are truly wanting to to reduce stress down to only when necessary, such as a fight or flight situation.

7 Ways To Make Stress Leave Your Life So You Get to Move on to The Business of Feeling Better.

Picture of a Dahlia from my mom’s backyard.

On this blog I focus in on seven things you need to have happening in your life in order to fight off disease, or get rid of it if it is already in your life.

I write this blog for you, because there are crazy statistics about how many people have disease, such as heart disease and cancer. I want to do what I can to help.

So stress is all about the choices you make. You decide if stress will be present or not. We will all have days/moments of sudden stress, like if all of a sudden a tree falls on your home or something like that. What I’m focusing on is the stress that you decide to bring in, and how to get rid of it.

1. Get off cell phones and all screens after 6pm, and don’t get on them first thing in the morning.  Get outside in natural light to give your eyes a break. This one isn’t instant as far as stress reduction. You have to develop the habit. Then time goes by and all of a sudden it’s been three weeks since you’ve been doing this and you notice that you just feel happier.

There’s exceptions to everything. If your teenager is at a movie and she’s going to call you to pick her up when its over, you need to check your phone. Try your best to keep these kinds of things brief and limited.

2.Don’t watch the news. Just don’t. You won’t miss anything as it’s mostly just depressing stuff. If something really, really major happens someone will tell you and you’ll find out one way or another. All that bad news does something to us that is just not good.

Set up your email in a way that you aren’t forced to see bad news. For example if you log into yahoo on a desk top to check your email, you have to see all kinds of bad things before you see your email. It really wears on us humans to be constantly, constantly exposed to murder, ugliness, and people behaving badly.

If you watch tv, turn it off when commercials come on. We’re big sports fans and I know especially with young children around, we turn it off for commercials to try and keep them from seeing things that are just too harsh and stressful.

3. This one can be difficult. If you have someone in your life that is kind of an emotional terrorist for you, that is, someone you just dread seeing or visiting, take some time to think about why that is.

If this person is a family member or someone you work with, it may be difficult to cut ties with them. If that is the case, try and set up some boundaries. I recently heard a wonderful talk on this subject, and the book Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend was recommended. I have not read it yet personally, but a couple of people who I am close to have. Sounds like it’s a very helpful book and I’m looking forward to reading it myself.

4. Walk every day.  Just decide to make it a habit.  I know all of the reasons and excuses not to open the door and walk.  Once you make this a habit it will go a long way for overall stress reduction.  You’ll find, if you make it a habit, that when stress does come up you will be able to handle it better.

All the Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
Layin’ in the sun,
Talkin’ bout the things
They woulda-coulda-shoulda done…
But those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
All ran away and hid
From one little did.

-Shel Silverstein

Just some inspiration for something I know is so difficult.

5.  If you do a lot of sitting, start standing more and stretching.  Stand up and sit down 20 times.  Anything you can think of to just get moving.

6. Leave anonymous gifts on your neighbor’s and friend’s doorsteps.  The act of doing this in a regular way is so stress relieving.  The thrill of getting back in your car really fast so your friend won’t see you is fun, too!  I’ve left chips and salsa, full meals, a supply of paper towels.  I once actually had a neighbor who had a tree fall on the house, so it was nice to be able to do something.

7. Smile.  For no particular reason.  Smiling has tons of stress reducing effects on us.  It’s an interesting topic to research.  Smiling has all kinds of calming effects on us.  The endorphins alone that are released when we smile make it very worth your time.  Not to mention it’s FREE.  I found this information about smiling and wanted to share it. Here’s one of my daughter’s great smiles.

That’s it!  Just a quick list.  If you can add to it here I’d love it if you left a comment.

7 Things to Have in Your Life Every Day to Heal Disease

I’m writing this post today for people who are tired of being on prescription medication and want to feel better.

There are seven things that need to be present in your life on a daily basis in order to push through and get rid of disease, or keep disease from happening in the first place.

These seven things are what I base what I write about here on this blog.  To feel better, the seven things have to be daily and consistent.

Small things that you can make part of your daily life.

So, what does everyone, every living thing need everyday?

The answer is…

Fresh air, sunlight, pure water, fruit and vegetables, movement, no stress, and do something that you love to do everyday.

You could spend a lifetime writing about these seven things individually.  But everything is connected.  I break them apart to offer fine tuning and specific details on each one but ultimately, it’s challenging to focus on them in isolation.

I spend time on this blog writing about how anyone who is interested can make sure these things are a part of their daily life.

So, I will offer a brief synopsis here of what to do to own these seven things in your day to day operations.

Warning:  I criticize sunscreen – not to offend, just offering my thoughts on it.  Again, I’m writing this post specifically for those that are tired of taking medication and just feel like there’s something better they could be doing. So let’s get into it.

Fresh air.  Get some everyday.  Don’t stay inside all day long!  Actually walk outside and stay out there for a while.  I have a theory that some people literally either don’t feel comfortable or just don’t know how to hang out outside anymore.  I wrote a post about it if you are interested.

Sunlight.  So, so incredibly important it’s unreal.  But not only does almost everyone stay inside, but when they do go out they slather on sunscreen.  The sun isn’t damaging us but the sunscreen is.  The sun has a purpose and when it hits our skin a natural chemical process takes place.  We sweat and our skin pushes toxins up to the surface.  Just one of the many ways our bodies are always trying to heal us and clean us up.  The sunscreen blocks this process and basically the toxins that come up through the skin get all mixed up with the chemical cocktail that is sunscreen.  Then it’s a soupy, toxic mess.  Why do we get brown spots, (aging spots, cancer, call them whatever you want) all over our skin?  Well, the sun’s job is to clean us, to cause us to sweat and move the sludge through the body and out through the skin, which is one of the body’s trash removal methods.  Sometimes when the toxins meet sunlight they leave a spot on us.  You will also notice that many of these spots are in locations that do not see a lot of sun.  Our spots are like road maps or clues as to what is wrong inside.

The sun speeds up the cleaning process but the body will push toxins through the skin anyway, whether you go out in the sun or not. If you are interested in learning more about this, Markus Rothkranz has two books on the subject, Heal Your Face and Heal Yourself 101.

You can find a less expensive copy of Heal Your Face here.

This takes you to the direct website where you can also find a free pdf version of the book Heal Yourself 101.  This is a wonderful gift to have for free!

Note:  I enjoy promoting Markus’ work and signed up for the affiliate program.  I know for a fact that I won’t be joining any other affiliate program because it’s just not my style. Although, I am also part of the Amazon affiliate program so I can recommend other books related to what I am writing, Markus’ books are my favorite by far.  They are also sold on Amazon, but I wanted to offer the direct link to his website so you can be sure to see all of the plant powders and everything else that is there in order to help you heal.  Not everyone will apply the information. It’s a certain type of reader who wants something different from what modern medicine offers, and wants to approach the task of health from a new angle.  If I can play even the smallest part in helping this information get where it needs to go, I am thankful.

Ok back to the sun,

Another reason to be in the sun daily is the vitamin D, calcium, magnesium process that takes place.  Just get in the sun and you’re well on your way to the proper requirements for these three much needed elements.  No need to worry about what’s the right dosage.  If you’re just starting out trying to get healthier, go slow with your sun intake.  If you’ve been inside all day every day you’ll need to let your eyes adjust and take your time.

More on the sun in future posts, but we still have the other five things to cover.

Pure water.  I have noticed that anything in this life that has confusion surrounding it, is something important and worth sorting through the confusion for the truth.  Water is one of those things.  I don’t even know how many different types of bottled water and brands there are.  I’ve never liked water in plastic bottles because I can taste the plastic.  I’ve asked other people, some of them agree and some do not.  I personally don’t drink it.

So how do we get pure water?  A fun way is to find a source for spring water in your area.  You can go to this website and find out where natural spring water is coming up from the ground close by where you live.  This is fun to do!  We lived in Indiana for a couple of years because of my husband’s work and this state has some neat opportunities for free spring water.  If you live there and it’s close for you, check out Pokagon State Park.

I’ll give you one more way to get pure water if the spring water option doesn’t work out.  Get a glass pot.  The size depends on how big your family is.  I use two.  Boil tap water in the glass pot.  Let it cool off.  Pour it through a Britta water filter container.  The filter has charcoal inside of it to absorb any bad stuff left behind.  But I don’t like to keep buying those filters.  I buy loose, food grade charcoal and every month when I’m washing out the container I add a fresh heaping spoonful of charcoal.  It settles to the bottom and does not come through the dispenser.  I have this one and it doesn’t come through.  But if you go with the loose charcoal option you can just use any kind of pitcher that has the type of dispenser in the link.  Then, drink LOTS of water! An absolute must to feeling better.

Next up,

Fruit and Vegetables. Eat the plants and you can’t mess up.  Fruit is a cleanser and vegetables are the builders.  We are always needing to clean and rebuild on the inside.  Try hard to just eat plants and nothing else for as long of a period as you can.  You will be happy that you did this, and will, hopefully, be able to continue.

Stay away from emotional terrorists.  This one is kind of the most important, because you can drink all the water in the world and eat the healthiest food, but if you’re stressed out a lot of those efforts get canceled out.  Toxic relationships and people who seem to suck you in and aren’t good for you to be around…Find the courage and just go for it and move on.  You can do it!  If this person is a family member and you can’t really move on, establish some boundaries.

The next thing you have to have in your life everyday is:

Moving!  You simply have to move around.  Move yourself everyday for more than 30 minutes.  When you’re inside, every 20 minutes or so, stand up and move around.  If you’ve been eating plants and drinking lots of water, all of the garbage will start trying to exit.  You need to move to help that happen.  Just put on walking shoes, open up your door and walk.  Come back home and walk farther the next day and the next.  When it’s raining do jumping jacks inside.  Then walk later.  Just move and know that it doesn’t have to be perfect with work out clothes and a gym.  No one will care what you’re wearing.  People in your neighborhood may see you and they will wish that they were out there walking.

And finally,

Do something you love everyday.  Pick a time of day whether it’s an hour or more and do your favorite thing that is just for you.

That’s it.  I hope you have enjoyed reading about the seven things needed to be disease free.  It’s a start and please subscribe to my blog so you’ll know when the next article is here.

 

 

Feel Better Right Now – 11 Things To Do

I just wanted to put up a quick post while I’m thinking about this.  When you need a list to go to when you feel lethargic and blah, try this one!

  1. Sit on the floor and stand up and sit down as many times as you can.
  2. Run around the outside of your house five times and laugh about what your neighbors must be thinking.
  3. Do as many jumping jacks as you can then write a hand-written thank you note to someone who needs to hear from you.
  4. Read one chapter from a book you’ve been meaning to read.
  5. Scream at the top of your lungs.
  6. Drink a glass of water and then go on a walk.
  7. Bring a junk drawer outside with a spray bottle and paper towel.  Dump it out and throw away and reorganize.
  8. Make a list of 10 things you’re so thankful for. (I know this one is so common but do we actually do it?)
  9. Polish up a bathroom.
  10. Clean your bed side table.
  11. Bring something to your neighbor.

That’s it!  All of the things can be done in 5 minutes and you’ll be in a better frame of mind when you’re done.  Print this list out or make your own and tape it up where you’ll see it everyday.

I’d love to know if you have something to add.  Please leave a comment if you do.

 

Cayenne Pepper – An Unsung Hero for Hearts and More

 

I would like to share a post that was written by Michael Tierra about the benefits of using cayenne.  Some good quality powdered cayenne should be in every home!

A spoonful of it in warm water can stop a heart attack.  It gets circulation going and so much more.

In my own family we cook with cayenne every single day.

I hope you enjoy this article.  When you’re done, please leave a comment about what you think is the best source available for cayenne powder, or any advice you may have about powdering it yourself at home.

How Do You Unclog Tubes?

Exactly how many tubes are in the human body?

 

For this article I want to focus on how a tube is a hollow structure, and the contents that need to flow through it have to be able to do so freely and without obstruction.

 

The tubes get clogged with the garbage we eat, but health is not a mystery.  How do you unclog the tubes?

 

Move  Stand up right now and walk around the outside of your home.  Come on, take care of yourself and make a start.  Do what you can.  The point is to do it.

Fresh air  Open the window.  Get outside.  Operate clean, dust free fans.

Do a little fasting to help clear out the garbage, or at least eat between 10am – 6pm.

Eat things that don’t clog the tubes  Fresh, raw fruit cleans your tubes and fresh raw vegeatbles rebuild them.  This is what’s true.

 

The most important tube to unclog is the colon.  Please do this.  Read Heal Yourself 101 for some FREE information about how to do this.  When the colon is clogged the other organs of the body won’t let go of what they are holding inside.  The gall bladder and kidneys will form stones around what doesn’t belong in an attempt to protect the body from it.  

 

The daily effort of drinking water and moving unclogs the tubes.

 

Health is not a mystery when you decide to be in charge it.

 

While you are outside, enjoy the sun.  In the same way that a stinky pair of shoes gets better after a day in the sun, you do as well!  Sun brings dirt to the surface of you (your skin).  Sun kills mold and bacteria and we all have some in varying degrees.

 

Thank you for reading this.  I have only scratched the surface of these topics here, but my hope is that you take some time to reflect and research.  Please leave a comment or question in the comments section.

Why Isn’t Anyone Outside?

Dandelions, Amaranth, Nettle, Purslane.  These are some of the edible weeds that grow in my front and back yard.  They also grow all over the world and are designed to heal us.  Everyday I go outside and gather them to throw in my Vitamix with some fruit and water.  These plants are worth your time.  They are worth learning about and can be considered FREE medicine, all around your home.  All you have to do is actually go outside and find them, plus do a little research. A small bunch of  dandelion greens costs about $6 at my grocery store.  They are usually half wilted.  It’s so thrilling to go outside in my own backyard and pick free food.

I am passionate about healing with food, fresh air, pure water, and moving.  I started this blog so I could talk about it and get feedback and thoughts from others who are like-minded.

When I say moving I don’t mean belonging to a gym, and having workout clothes.  Those things are nice if it’s something you enjoy.  I think it can also be a roadblock to moving because you think you can’t exercise unless you have all the right stuff.  Open up the door, get outside and start walking.  That’s it.  The fresh air clears your head, literally.  You will be back inside soon enough and you will feel great.

Don’t worry about who will see you or what you are wearing.  Just move, for about thirthy minutes to an hour, every day.  Odds are that no one will see you anyway if you live in a neighborhood like mine.  What I mean is, no one is EVER outside.  On an hour’s walk, I may see one person.  I live in what I would consider an average suburb.

When I was a kid everyone was outside.  Kids were playing and adults were working in flowerbeds and garages.  When my grandmother was young, not only were people outside but they would sing while they worked.

I started walking for real and without skipping days about three years ago. Couldn’t help but notice that no one was outside.  At first I figured people must be away working at their jobs.  But cars are in the driveways.  At least in my neighborhood, people are home, possibly working from home, but it seems they are choosing to stay inside.

Outside is where the health is!

Sun and sweating and moving is health.

You already know this because it’s common sense.  But almost everyone has somehow forgotten or is just not doing it.  I plan to write a lot about that, too.  Not necessarily why we forgot but how to get it back.  Our health, that is.

Is this simple fact alone the reason why so many of us are so unhealthy?  I just want to keep telling everyone that sun and sweating and moving is health.  Health is wealth. Whatever it takes!

Sorry to point out the obvious but sitting is stagnant.  I think about water that’s been sitting in a bucket for too long without movement.  It starts to smell and attracts mosquitoes and other bugs.  I think the same thing happens to us when we sit too long!  We need movement.

It doesn’t have to be planned and perfect or happen at the right time.  Just go.  Walk everyday.  Once you get back, you can do the dishes or whatever needs doing, then go outside again later.  Check out your flower beds:)
