Taking time for YOU is TOP Priority Reset Your Resilience

Reset Your Resilience

As you move to and past the 50 year mark of life, things just start to kind of “slow down”. Our bodies, minds and souls just start going a little slower, and taking time for US takes a second seat to taking care of others. We become grandmothers, care-givers and amp our “Busy’ness”. When we do this, we accelerate the process of slowing down. To keep up with the game and to maximize your life experience, it is critical that you pencil in time just for you. I don’t mean the “mani-pedi” although that is a great way to incorporate self-care, I am really talking about taking real time for you. Here are some ideas for taking that much need YOU DAY.

Schedule a YouCation

This is when you rent a room somewhere, just for you, and you stay there alone. You take time to see the location around you and enjoy the process of just being with you. During this time, do what you love. Enjoy the essence of who you were born to be and to become. Being with yourself is an amazing experience. It resets your resilience in many ways. Many women at our age tend to have a slight fear or anxiety toward being home alone.

Set Soft Boundaries

When we turn 50 and above, we tend to not set enough boundaries. It may feel as if people are railroading us with things they want. Saying no is the most loving thing you can do for yourself. You may need to say no to too much Facebook or say no to a relative who insists that you take him or her to the store. Say no to friends who are constantly negative, and say no to food or drink that hurts your heath. Setting boundaries is a great way to reset your resilience.

Take care of your Body

Setting a whole day aside for body self-care is a great way to reset your resilience. Get a deep-tissue massage, sit in a hot sauna. The toxins release from your body as the steam heats you up. Eat natural and clean foods. These foods have energy that is processed easily. Fruits, veggies and nuts are still the best foundation for healthy living.

Breast Cancer is Unacceptable – Prevention, Treatment and Survival

Breast Cancer is Unacceptable – Prevention, Treatment and Survival

Breast Cancer is Unacceptable

What it takes to survive this atrocity is tenacity and grace. October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and always a time to reflect on those you love who have survived through treatment or holistic living. Breast cancer awareness should also focus on two other important areas; breast cancer prevention through clean eating and living, and life after cancer when treatment is successful.

Many times we go into this month seeing pink everywhere, and the Susan Komen foundation rocks the promotion of how to recognize the signs, be proactive with self-care and checkups and emotionally deal with the life issues which arise after the diagnosis. Foundations around the world hold fund-raisers, and rallies to help women who have breast cancer. It’s an incredible thing to see.

Surviving breast cancer requires an awareness of the possibility that you can heal from this. It may not seem that way when you first are diagnosed, but it is possible. Going through all of it with a holistic and light-hearted approach, makes the process less painful. Your family may not understand everything about the diagnosis, so take time to include them in all conversations about the exact process of treatment.

Prevention of breast cancer is something we should talk about also. Today, if you are a woman, you may have breast cancer, and we are praying for your recovery. If you don’t have breast cancer, there are preventative measures that can help you avoid getting it. Prevention starts with awareness of what breast cancer is and how it starts to grow in the body. When you are aware of the natural prevention methods and you do those methods, you may be less likely to get the news of breast cancer.

Here are a few ways you can start now, to help your body.

  1. Drinking plenty of water can help move toxins and free radicals out of your body faster.
  2. Fruits are powerful antioxidants so get plenty of them in your daily food intake.
  3. Pay attention to your acidity and include alkaline foods such as greens, in your daily intake.

Surviving, preventing and thriving are all possible when you simply learn all you can about your body. Make sure you pay attention to foods and drinks which are toxic to the body and stay away from them as much as possible.
