TIME TO START OR RESTART YOUR YOGA PRACTICE @ HOME
In these times of so much stress, anxiety and uncertainty, we can look to the time-honoured practices of yoga and meditation for stability, balance and peace.
Here’s a quick motivational video called Reflections on The Purpose of Yoga created by my yoga teacher, Shanti Devi (Shanell Vaughn), to get you thinking about this time-honoured practice that would be excellent to add to your personal care/stress management toolkit. And if you don’t have a mat right now, start with a towel!

UBERSOCA CRUISE PRESENTS THE ONLINE QUARANTINE COOLER COUCH FETE
I love to dance and I LOVE music so this suggestion from a client of mine reminded me of a quote I read once that said “Why Be Moody When You Can Shake Your Booty?” Heck, maybe we can shake off worry, anxiety and social isolation through virtual dance parties?
This is a wild entry in my list, but one of my clients attended one of the fetes this past Saturday and she swears it was super fun and it got her dancing in her house and having a great time! So, if you need to dance, socialize online and love Soca music then this one’s for you!
ADJUSTING YOUR “I AM” DAILY MANTRA
In my 1-on-1 Integrative Nutrition Coaching Sessions with my clients, I cover the concept “The Power of I Am.” It is about identifying who you are at your BEST.
The concept is taken from a sermon by Christian Pastor and NY Times Bestselling Author, Joel Osteen, and it was made popular by Oprah who shared it on one of her Lifeclasses on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Please take some time to listen to these podcasts on the Power of I AM:
Why Oprah Says the Words “I Am” Matter | Oprah’s Lifeclass | Oprah Winfrey Network:
The power of “I AM” says:
“Whatever follows the “I am” will eventually find you.”
“When you say “I am strong,” strength comes looking for you.”
“…when you say, “I am beautiful,” not only does beauty, youth, and freshness start coming your way, but on the inside your spirit also comes alive. Your self-image begins to improve, and you’ll start carrying yourself like you’re someone special. You won’t drag through the day feeling less than or inferior. You’ll have that spring in your step, that “You go, girl!” attitude. Beauty is not in how thin or tall you are, how perfect you look. Beauty is in being who God made you to be with confidence. If you’re a size 4, great. If you’re a size 24, great. Take what you have and make the most of it.”
― Joel Osteen, The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today
Some examples of I AM statements include:
“I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am successful.” “I am victorious. I am talented. I am creative.” “I am wise. I am healthy. I am in shape.” “I am energetic. I am happy. I am positive.” “I am passionate. I am strong. I am confident.” “I am secure. I am beautiful. I am attractive.” “I am valuable. I am free. I am redeemed.” “I am forgiven. I am anointed. I am accepted.” “I am approved. I am prepared. I am qualified.” “I am motivated. I am focused. I am disciplined.” “I am determined. I am patient. I am kind.” “I am generous. I am excellent. I am equipped.” “I am empowered. I am well able.”
― Joel Osteen, The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today
And we may have had strong I Am statements for all of 2020 so far…. but the world has just changed in a huge way and we may need to adjust them! We want to use these statements as mantras and repeat them to ourselves in the morning when we wake up, in the middle of the day and at night before we sleep. They will help focus and direct the mind towards good feeling emotions, helpful consciousness, inner peace and mental/emotional strength, and might even boost your immunity! All of which are very important today.
Here are my new ones for these COVID-19 times – note that they do not have to be complicated!
I AM Focused (on my mission)
I AM Healthy and Radiant
I AM So Supported
Now it’s your turn….
I want you to remind yourself about who you are when you’re at your BEST and who you want to be. Dig deep to find the answer to the following question (in bold below) and then post these words up on your bedroom door, mirror or on your phone with an alarm to remind you of them at certain times of the day. A life of intentionality is a life well lived. Be intentional about who you are. Create who you are. Become the person you want to be.
3 words that will now define the best of who I AM and that will be used to guide my personal life, including my thoughts and actions, are:
Note that if you do a simple flip of the word order, you get the question “AM I?” – and that is where anxiety sets in! Be sure to live your life with an inner dialog that declares “I AM” from this day forward.
5 HERBS TO HELP FIGHT ANXIETY
This is a helpful little article!
“At Integrative Nutrition, we believe in the four pillars of primary food – spirituality, career, physical activity, and relationships – which are as important, if not more important, than the food you eat. Secondary food is the food that’s actually on your plate, and it’s critical to balance the two. Often, we have a one-sided view of what it means to be “healthy,” but adapting a more well-rounded understanding will help lead to a healthier, fuller life for the long haul. It’s critical to understand the significance of primary and secondary food and how they work together to transform your health. That’s what IIN is all about!
And while you can support yourself by pursuing your passion, prioritizing self-care, going for a run, grabbing coffee with a friend, meditating, and journaling any negative thoughts you have – there are several foods that are good for the body, mind, and soul, too! We’ve broken down our top five favorite herbs that may help balance your hormones, enhance your energy, reduce stress, and promote overall well-being.

SELF CARE: LOOKING AFTER AND LOVING YOURSELF IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Some of us don’t really know how to start when it comes to self care, so here are some tips!
“The evolution of self-care
The concept of taking care of oneself physically, mentally, and emotionally has long been practiced, especially by those in professions where mental and emotional stress is common, such as therapy, social work, and emergency medicine.
As our understanding of mental health expanded, coupled with the explosion of technology, people everywhere began embracing this concept and the general idea that wellness tools – including mental health care, movement, whole-food nutrition, and supplements – could be utilized to not just survive but improve quality of life.
Self-care in the modern world…”
HOW TO GET BETTER SLEEP: TEN WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP HEALTH
If you’re up at night worrying about your health, career, finances or family right now…this one’s for you because sleep needs to become a priority at this time.
“What is “sleep health”?
Maybe you aim to exercise 30 minutes each day. Maybe you try to eat something green with each meal. Maybe you drink as much water as possible during the day. Overall, you actively work to maintain good health by eating healthy foods, staying active, and keeping hydrated.
But do you try to get a good night’s sleep every night? If you don’t consider sleep part of your wellness routine, you might want to reconsider! Getting a good night’s sleep – in terms of both quantity and quality – is an incredibly important aspect of health, and it can impact everything…”
