Healthy Holiday Habits
You know it’s coming. The holidays are almost here and all the emotions arise!
Parties to plan or attend, planes to catch and endless work and family gatherings. Also, lots of other emotions rise up that include joy, excitements but also sadness, grief, and loneliness.
My grandpa passed away on December 24 so it’s a time for my family to hold his presence dearly.
There are some ways though to stay in your good vibe and not letting it all get to you.
A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends. Most restorative practices are based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. As described by Yoga Journal.
This can help the nerves settle, more time to be a little gentler and slower.
Try some good cardio to get the blood pumping, the body moving and the heart racing! This is what will help things really move inside and give you energy! I love to mix a good cardio and strength building routine with yoga. Mind and body full power!
Introducing a simple lavender diffused in the air is great, but what about creating a wellness routine with DoTerra Essential Oils. The high grade of therapeutic certification allow some oils to be ingested like Frankincense (the bonus oil of the month!)
It’s soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular, immune, nervous, and digestive function when used internally.* When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.
NO MORE NERVES BLEND
Inhale a drop each of Frankincense and Lavender to calm nerves, anxious feelings, and promote a calm and relaxed mood.
If you have to host a party (like I do this year) be happy you get to have those who love you around!
I always love hearing from you – share with me what your holiday plans are!!!
