YOGA FUNDEMENTALS – Part 2!

Thank you for joining me. For the next few months… (until end of October – twice a month), I will be offering not only the basics, the fundamentals but more advance techniques in Yoga, and more!

Yoga Fundamentals is being presented in 2 parts. Yesterday, I posted part 1 and today will be part 2! In today’s class, we will be covering the different poses with Basic Yoga Fundamentals.

So get on your Yoga Gear and Get ready for Yoga Fundamentals! Enjoy!

Standing Poses

Here is an overview of some of the common standing yoga poses!

Mountain Pose:

This is the foundation of all standing poses and can be used as a tool to improve posture.The cues to achieve this pose include:

  • Start by standing with your big toes slightly touching and your heels slightly apart, whileevenly distributing your weight on both feet.
  • Imagine a line of energy all the way up along your inner thighs to your groin.

  • Align your head over your neck, shoulders, and torso while extending through the crown of your head.

  • Lift your sternum slightly with arms by your side.

Low Lunge

This pose stretches your thighs as well as opens the chest. The cues to achieve this pose include:

  • From standing, extend your left leg behind you so your toes on your mat and heel is pressing towards the back of room.
  • Bend at your right knee so your knee is over your ankle and your thigh is parallel to the ground.

  • Place your hands on either side of your right foot and slowly lower your left knee to the mat and untuck your toes so the top of your left foot is flat on the mat.

  • Square off your hips so they are facing the front of the mat.

  • Inhale and gently lift your chest.

  • Extend the arms out and, pointing the fingers to the ceiling.

  • Exhale the torso back to the right thigh to return the hands back to the sides of the foot.

  • Return your back leg to meet the front and fold up one vertebra at a time.

  • Repeat on the other side.

  • Forward Bend Yoga Pose

    Forward Fold

    This pose lengthens tight hamstrings, stretches the hips, and strengthens the spine. The cues to achieve this pose include:

    • From Mountain pose, tip your hips back slightly and fold over your body reaching your arms towards your toes. (It’s ok to keep a slight bend in the knees!)
  • If you can’t reach your toes place hands on thighs, shins, or ankles.

  • Push your chest towards your thighs.

  • With each inhale lengthen your spine and with each exhale try to fold a little deeper.

  • Strengthening Yoga Poses

    Post 15

    Chair Pose

    This pose stimulates the heart while strengthening the core, arms, and legs. The cues to achieve this pose include:

    • From Mountain pose, bend your knees trying to get the thighs parallel to the floor.
  • Place your weight in your heels (you should be able to wiggle your toes).

  • Raise your arms toward the ceiling, with biceps parallel to your ears.

  • Keep your shoulder blades pulled down your back and tuck your tailbone to bring your belly button in toward the spine.

  • Hold for a few breaths then gently return to Mountain.

  • Downward Facing Dog

    This is one of the most recognized yoga poses and activates every muscle in the body. After becoming familiar with the practice, Down Dog will be used as an active resting pose. The cues to achieve this pose include:

    • Start from an all fours position with your knees directly below your hips and hands below your shoulders.
  • Spread your fingers wide to place weight evenly in the hands and turn your toes under.

  • Exhale as you lift your knees from the floor keeping a slight bend at first.

  • As your legs warm up, lengthen your tailbone and extend to the ceiling.

  • Try pushing your heels towards the floor to straighten your knees, while pressing your chest towards your thighs.

  • Keep shoulder blades pressed down the back instead of extending shoulders towards the ears.

  • The head stays between your upper arms. Avoid letting it hang!

  • To release the pose return knees to the floor and extend to Child’s Pose.

  • Chest Opening Yoga Poses

    Upward Facing Dog

    This pose is a gentle heart and chest opener. The cues to achieve this pose include:

    • Lower to the floor from plank position with the tops of your feet pressed firmly on the floor.
  • As you inhale, press your inner hands into the floor and slightly back towards your ribs.

  • Straighten your arms to lift your torso a few inches off the floor.

  • Lift through the top of the sternum and ground down through your pelvis.

  • Hold for several breaths before resting into Child’s Pose.

  • Yoga Backbend

    Bridge Pose:

    This pose stretches the chest, neck, spine, and hips, while strengthening the back, buttocks, and hamstrings. The cues to achieve this pose include:

    • Start by lying on the back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • Gently raise your tailbone keeping thighs zipped together, buttocks relaxed, and knees aligned over ankles.

  • Clasp yours hands below your pelvis and extend through the arms to help you stay on the tops of your shoulders.

  • Gently press the top of the sternum toward the chin.

  • Stay in the pose for several breaths before releasing with an exhalation, rolling the spine slowly down onto the floor.

  • Core Yoga poses

    Cat-Cow:

    The combination of Cat-Cow is a gentle way to warm up the spine and stretches the neck, shoulders, spine, hips, back, abdomen, and chest.The cues to achieve this pose combination include:

    • Start from all fours, hands under shoulders and knees under hips.
  • As you exhale, round your spine toward the ceiling, and release your head toward the floor.

  • Inhale back to neutral.

  • As you inhale, lift your sitting bones and chest toward the ceiling, allowing your belly to sink toward the floor.

  • Exhale back to neutral.

  • Flow through each movement with the breath several times.

  • Restorative Poses

    Child’s Pose

    This is a restful pose that can be utilized any time during your practice. Anytime you feel you need a break, ease into Child’s Pose for a few breaths. Honor your body by listening to what it needs.

    The steps for this includes:

    • Kneel on the floor with your knees as wide as your hips.
  • Exhale as your lay your torso between the knees towards the floor.

  • Your arms can lie on the floor on the sides of the body or over head reaching away.

  • Stay in Child’s Pose for several breaths to slow your heart rate and come back to your breath.

  • Corpse Pose (also known as Savasana)

    This is a pose of total relaxation. It can be deceiving, however, because it is a challenging pose to master.This pose is performed while lying flat on your back. Some like to bend the knees into the chest and gently rock right to left for a spine massage first, before slowly return each leg back to the floor.

    Then to settle into this pose you follow these steps:

    • Position your arms and legs as wide as is comfortable and leave your open palms facing the ceiling.
  • While in the lying pose, slowly focus on each muscle section of the body and relax it.

  • Start from your ankles, moving up toward calves, behind the knees, thighs, buttock, lower back, torso, chest, shoulders, neck, and head, ending with the space between the eyes and the mouth.

  • Stay in the pose for 5 minutes for every 30 minutes of practice.

  • To exit the pose slowly bring movement into the toes and fingers. Some people like to do a long stretch extending the arms over head stretching from the fingers to the toes.

  • Gently roll to your right side and gently use your hands to push yourself up into a seated position.

  • Additional poses

    Inversion poses defy gravity by reversing the direction of blood flow in positions such as:

    • Shoulder-stand
  • Headstand

  • Legs-up-the-wall pose

  • Hip openers loosen tight hips, improve range of motion, and release tension caused by stress.Some include:

    • Cow Face Pose
  • Pigeon

  • Butterfly

  • Fire Log Pose

  • Twists are detoxifying,aid digestion, and relieve lower back pain, such as:

    • Revolved Triangle
  • Revolved Side Angle Pose

  • Bharadvaja’s Twist

  • Balancing Poses help calm the mind and build strength. Some include:

    • Eagle
  • Tree

  • Side Plank

  • What’s your favorite yoga pose?!

    Props

    Any pose can be modified or aided by the use of props. If you experience pain in any pose slowly back out of the pose. While it’s important to challenge yourself, you should never experience pain when doing yoga.

    The use of props does not signify weakness! Honoring your body by effectively using props can help you get the most out of your practice.

    Popular props include:

    • Blocks:

    Foam blocks can be used to extend your reach to the floor of support knees in seated postures

    • Bolsters:

    Bolsters are rectangular shaped dense pillows you can lie on for chest openers or place behind the knees to protect lower back during Savasana

    • Strap or Belt:

    Straps act as an extension of the arms or hands. Try using a strap to assist in in seated forward folds

    • Mats:

    A good yoga mat should have a textured stickiness to help prevent sliding and sponginess for comfort.

    Meditation

    Studies on meditation as relaxation have documented the following short-term benefits to the nervous system:

    • Lowers blood pressure
  • Improves blood circulation

  • Lowers heart rate

  • Lessens perspiration

  • Slows respiratory rate

  • Lessens anxiety

  • Lowers blood cortisol levels

  • Increases well-being

  • Lessens stress

  • Deepens relaxation

  • Try this meditation and experience the benefits for yourself:

    1. Start in a comfortable seated position.
  • Close your eyes and breathe normally.

  • Focus your attention on the breath and how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Also notice the movement of your body as you breathe.

  • Start a practice of 5 minute sessions and eventually work your way up to 20 minute sessions.

  • Namaste

    Thank you for taking the time to experience my class – Yoga Fundamentals Facebook Class.

    Namaste is a way of giving thanks. This gesture is seen as one bows forward with both hands together at the heart.

    YOGA FUNDEMENTALS!

    Thank you for joining me. For the next few months… (until end of October – twice a month), I will be offering not only the basics, the fundamentals but more advance techniques in Yoga, and more!

    Yoga Fundamentals will be presented in 2 parts. Today will be part 1 and tomorro will be part 2!

    So get on your Yoga Gear and Get ready for Yoga Fundamentals!

    Welcome!

    Welcome everyone! I am so excited to have you joining me today! I have a lot of fun information to share, but first, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

    In 2008, I decided to quite smoking after on and off battle with quitting. Then came the fast climb with the after smoking binge and weight gain. With the past 2 yrs, attempting to lose weight, then gain back just as much, I came across a page for a support group for Healthy Weight loss! I went through various pills and diets with little or no help. So after a long and tedious search, I came across Valentus on a former classmates page, and signed up as a Distributor who also uses the Valentus Products…. and I’m now drinking coffee to lose weight!!! Yes, that is right! I am drinking Valentus Slim Roast Coffee to help control my cravings, appetite and to also lose weight! Keep tuned in for more info: https://kjensifymehealthy.wordpress.com

    At the same time I am making money being a Health and Wellness Distributor. I I also have my own business as an Affiliate for Weight loss Companies.

    Started with Valentus Canada October 2016.

    My website is http://www.kjensifyme.myvalentus.com and to signup and take the free tour: http://www.kjensifyme.experiencevalentus.com/

    The Basics

    First and foremost, yoga is not about advanced poses, but the process of getting there. This is a lesson many forget. The hardest thing to remember in yoga is it’s not about ego. The second you start comparing yourself to the person next to you, you’ve given in to the ego.

    Your flexibility level or ability to balance doesn’t matter. These are things that will improve over time. Even practiced yogi’s have off days! One week you might be able to balance in a standing pose without wavering, and the next could be a whole different experience.

    Ultimately, the goal is to learn how to work through the challenges on the mat and translate your success to challenges off the mat as well.

    Tips for Leaving Ego Behind!

    Letting go of self-judgments can be challenging. We’ve unknowingly programmed our brains to judge ourselves, sometimes rather harshly. To have a successful and enjoyable practice, leave your ego at the door and just experience whatever happens during class. There’s no right or wrong here!

    Try these steps:

    • Recognize that you are NOT your ego!

    Yoga fosters an environment to connect with your inner-self and should not be seen as a competition with others or yourself.

    • Don’t judge or compare!

    Yoga is a non-competitive sport, so there’s no need to judge or compare. Yoga teaches compassion, so start by showing yourself compassion by not judging yourself negatively.

    • Stop making excuses!

    There are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ days, just different. Excuses can quickly turn into limitations. Recognize your abilities and accept your flaws.

    • Replace separation with collaborating!

    When comparing yourself, you create a separation from others. Conversely, you become more open to the positive energy of those around you, creating a deeper sense of connectedness, by internalizing your practice.

    • Practice gratitude!Incorporate gratitude into your practice. There’s much to be grateful for, yourself for going to class, your instructor for leading your journey, and your fellow yogi’s for sharing a new experience with you.

    From the Beginning:

    The word yoga is first mentioned in a sacred Indian text, the Rig Veda. Yoga was, then, slowly developed by ‘mystic seers’ who documented their practices and beliefs in the Upanishads, another text containing over 200 scriptures.

    The Upanishads specifically reformed the yogic idea of ritual sacrifice from the Vedas into teaching the internal sacrifice of the ego through self-knowledge, action, and wisdom.

    The first organized demonstration of yoga appeared in the second century in a text called Patanjali’s Yoga-Sûtras. This is where the 8 Limbs of yoga as a path to enlightenment was developed. These Yoga-Sûtras still strongly influence most styles of modern yoga practiced today.

    Next, we’ll take a deeper look at the 8 Limb teachings.

    Eight Limbs of Yoga!

    The eight-limbed path forms the framework for every yoga practice. You’ll notice only one limb mentions postures, which is what yoga is often most known for.

    The practice of yoga is a personal one, meaning each individual person can decide how many branches they wish to incorporate into their practice.

    To reach the ultimate goal of enlightenment, however, each limb should be practiced:

    • Yama: Universal morality
    • Niyama: Personal observances

    • Asanas: Body postures

    • Pranayama: Control of the breath

    • Pratyahara: Control of the senses

    • Dharana: Concentration and cultivating inner perceptual awareness

    • Dhyana: Devotion, Meditation on the Divine

    • Samadhi: Union with the Divine

    Each limb builds on the next. To reiterate, if your goal is to reach enlightenment, it is believed you must first master the first 7 limbs before advancing to the 8th.

    A Deeper Look:

    Here we’ll briefly touch on the first, second, and fifth limbs. We’ll talk in more detail about the third and fourth limbs pertaining to the postures and breath later in this presentation.

    Yamas and Niyamas:

    These limbs are considered the ethical rules of behavior, universal morality, or personal observances.

    Yamas describe our outward attitude towards people and things.

    The 5 yamas include:

    • Ahimsa – Compassion for all living things
  • Satya – Commitment to Truthfulness

  • Asteya – Non-stealing

  • Brahmacharya – Sense control

  • Aparigraha – Neutralizing the desire to acquire and hoard wealth

  • Niyamas describe our inward attitude towards ourselves.

    The 5 Niyamas include:

    • Sauca – Purity
  • Santosa – Contentment

  • Tapas – Disciplined use of our energy

  • Svadhyaya – Self study

  • Isvarapranidhana – Celebration of the Spiritual

  • Pratyahara:

    This is the practice of the withdrawing of the senses from attachment to external objects. The goal is to focus the mind, such as through meditation, which will cause the senses to become extraordinarily sharp. Put simply, pratyahara addresses our emotional imbalances that allow outside events to prevent us from achieving inner peace and tranquility.

    Pranayama

    This limb focuses on breath control, an integral component to the practice of yoga.

    Breath is important to restore and maintain health and to promote evolution. Relaxation and balance are a result of the joining of the in-flowing and out-flowing breath.

    The breath works hand-in-hand with asanas, or otherwise known as yoga poses. According to the Yoga Sutra, the combination of breath and movement are considered to be the highest form of purification and self-discipline for the mind and the body.

    The most common breath is called Ujjayi (pronounced ooh-JAH-yee). This breath helps calm the mind and warm the body. The goal is to completely fill your lungs, while slightly contracting your throat. The breath is performed by breathing entirely through your nose.

    Ujjayi

    How to use Ujjaya:

    1. From a seated position relax your body, jaw, and tongue.
  • You’ll start by inhaling and exhaling through the mouth.

  • On the exhalation, slightly contract the back of your throat, and softly whisper the sound, “ahhh.”

  • When you feel comfortable controlling your throat during the inhalations and exhalations, gently close your mouth and begin breathing only through your nose.

  • Allow your inhalations to completely fill your lungs followed by fully emptying your lungs on exhalations. Your breath should now be audible.

  • This breath will be maintained throughout your yoga session. As you master the breath you will connect the breath to movement of the poses.

  • At the heart of yoga is the belief that consciously practicing breath control exercises will positively impact your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.Additionally, maintaining a steady, rhythmic breath is the single most important part of your yoga practice to calm your mind and bring awareness to the present moment. The increased oxygen entering the body through Ujjayi specifically is calming for the mind and strengthening of the body. This powerful breath will help release pent-up emotions and stress.

    Asanas

    Most people are familiar with the benefits of asanas as improved health, strength, balance, and flexibility.

    Poses are developed to challenge and explore emotions, concentration, intent, faith, and unity between the physical and the ethereal body. As we learn to create a balance between our mental world and spiritual experience asanas allow us to explore our mental attitudes and strengthen our will.

    Asana practice will improve your state of health, while learning to control the breath will harmonize the flow of energy.

    What to Expect!

    Here are some tips for getting the most out of your first yoga class:

    Start by researching class styles in your area. Look for a style and level to best fit your fitness goals. Many instructor bios can be found online as well.

    Once you decide on what class you’ll be attending, keep an open mind. In other words, leave your expectations at home! You may have to try several classes before you find the right fit for you.

    Some studios require a waiver to be completed on your first visit, so be sure to arrive early. Arriving early also gives you a moment to speak with the instructor. They can give you an idea what to expect during the class and you can inform them of any limitations or injuries you have so they can provide modifications or tell you any poses to avoid.

    Be sure to wear comfortable clothing. Something that’s flexible is ideal such as, shorts, leggings, or yoga pants.

    Most studios can provide a mat if you don’t have one. Bring a towel and water bottle. And don’t forget your positive attitude!

    Posture

    Now that you have a better understanding of yoga’s rich history and what to expect for your first class let’s talk about some basic poses!

    Here is a list of poses we will discuss including the common names and types of pose. Don’t worry, you aren’t required to know all the names! The more you practice the more familiar you will become with these.

    Mountain Pose – Standing Yoga Pose

    Forward Fold – Forward Bend Yoga Pose

    Chair Pose – Strengthening Yoga Pose

    Low Lunge – Standing Yoga Pose

    Upward Facing Dog – Chest Opening Yoga Pose

    Downward Facing Dog – Strengthening Yoga Pose

    Child’s Pose – Restorative Yoga Pose

    Cat-Cow Pose – Core Yoga Pose

    Bridge Pose – Yoga Backbend

    Corpse Pose – Restorative Yoga Pose

    Sun Salutation

    Many classes will begin with a series of postures to warm, strengthen, and align the entire body called Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutation. There are many variations, but this is considered the classic version:

    Mountain

    Chair

    Forward fold

    Low lunge

    Upward facing dog

    Downward facing dog

    Low lunge

    Mountain

    This is often repeated several times and flows are built upon this initial sequence.

    Namaste

    This concludes part 1 oF Yoga Fundamentals. Be sure tomorrow for part 2.

    Thank you for taking the time to experience my class – Yoga Fundamentals Facebook Class – Part 1.

    Namaste is a way of giving thanks. This gesture is seen as one bows forward with both hands together at the heart.

    1 cup spinach cooked
    5 garlic cloves minced
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes , crushed
    6 bacon strips , COOKED, DRAINED OF FAT, AND CHOPPED
    1 1/3 cups half and half
    1 1/3 cups Parmesan cheese , shredded
    10 oz penne pasta (for gluten-free version, use gluten-free brown-rice penne)
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated, for serving

    Instructions
    In a large skillet, on high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil until hot. Add chicken and cook on one side on high heat for 1 minute. While it cooks, sprinkle the uncooked sides of the chicken with paprika and Italian seasoning. Flip the chicken over, and cook on the other side for 1 minute on high heat. Reduce heat to medium, flip chicken over again and cook, covered, for several minutes until no longer pink in the center. Remove chicken from the pan and keep chicken warm.
    To the same pan (but without chicken), add chopped tomatoes, spinach, garlic, crushed red pepper, 1/3 of the chicken (sliced into small strips) and half the bacon (already cooked and drained of fat). Mix everything.
    Add half and half and bring to boil. Only after half and half starts boiling, add grated Parmesan cheese – immediately reduce to simmer and stir, while simmering, until the cheese melts and makes the sauce creamy, only about 1 minute (at most 2 minutes). Then, immediately remove from heat. Season with more crushed red pepper and salt, if needed.
    In the mean time bring a large pot of water to boil, add pasta and cook it according to instructions. Drain the pasta, rinse with cold water and drain again.
    Add pasta to the skillet with the sauce. Add remaining half of bacon (cooked and drained of fat). Season with more salt if necessary. Slice the remaining 2/3 of chicken into thin strips. To serve, top the pasta with chicken strips and grated Parmesan cheese.
    Recipe Notes
    WHAT IS HALF AND HALF? To make 1 cup of half and half, combine 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of heavy cream (or heavy whipping cream).

    Food Combining Made EASY!

    Learning how to properly combine foods the body can break down together may help you not only look better, but FEEL better too!

    How does food-combining work? This is a quick overview of how to get started. Learning which foods digest well together and which ones don’t is the first step! For example, since proteins, carbohydrates, and fats all digest in different ways, sometimes they can interfere with each other in the digestive system. This is what causes a gassy, bloated feeling.

    By properly combining foods, you can enhance digestion, reduce bloating, speed up elimination, and increase energy so that your digestive tract doesn’t have to work as hard to absorb the nutrients you need for energy! Here are a few things to keep in mind:

    – Choose a protein or starch for each meal, but not both. Eat proteins first with cooked or raw non-starchy vegetables. Do not eat protein with fruit, grains, and other starchy foods. Although we’re accustomed to digging into the bread basket before our steaks (or legumes, nuts, seeds, etc.), it’s best to eat protein foods first since they require the most digestive enzymes when compared to those needed for plants and starches. When you eat protein-rich foods after starches or other food, your stomach acids will not be sufficient for their digestion.

    – Eat fresh fruit alone, preferably on an empty stomach. This is especially true for melons as they digest very quickly. Fresh fruit can generally be paired with raw, leafy greens in salads or smoothies without interfering with digestion.
    – If you get hungry between meals, snack on your favorite non-starchy vegetables.

    – Wait at least 3 hours before changing categories.

    – Try to only eat unprocessed starches and whole grains. Steer clear of refined or processed foods like white sugar, white flour, and margarine.

    – Eat when you’re hungry, not at any specific time of the day or at any specific meal time.

    Facebook Class Replay -Mood Boosters -Part 2

    For the past 2 days, my blog will be about the Facebook Class I hosted Wednesday night within my facebook group @KJensifyme Healthy Vitality!

    I blogged part 1 yesterday, and as promised, part 2 of Mood Boosters will be tonight! Enjoy!

    Physical activity and its mood-boosting effects have been the subject of numerous studies. The results of these studies indicate that exercise can:

    -Trigger positive emotional processing

    -Reduce negativity

    -Resist stress

    -Reduce anxiety by increasing serotonin levels

    -Improves body satisfaction, leading to overall satisfaction

    There is strong evidence that physical activity improves both short-term and long-term mood.

    Studies further show people who exercise regularly exhibit general overall happiness. As such, physical activity is especially important for those vulnerable to depression or seasonal affective disorder.

    The Exercise Affect: http://www.apa.org/monitor/2011/12/exercise.aspx

    10 Ways Exercise Improves Your Mood: https://www.fitnessmagazine.com/mind-body/stress/exercise-improves-your-mood/

    This activity is two-fold! You get the benefits of released endorphins for walking while enjoying nature which is also a natural mood booster!

    If you’re not sure what local parks or nature preserves are around, ask locals or look on the internet. There are more places than you’d think!

    Places to look for:

    -Historical neighborhoods

    -Parks

    -Botanical gardens

    -Walking trails

    -Beaches, lakes, rivers, etc.

    Being around animals is a natural mood booster! Spend a few minutes a day either walking your pet or playing outside. If your pet isn’t stressed by other animals, look for local dog parks.

    It’s also been proven that simply petting an animal helps increase stress-reducing hormones such as oxytocin, and reduces the stress producing hormone cortisol. Even in the absence of your pet, just looking at cute animals online can have the same effect!

    Playing outside with your fluffy friend improves mental health by:

    -Getting you moving

    -Reducing stress

    -Creating a distraction from worries

    -Lessening loneliness

    -Making you smile

    Dancing is a great way to get you moving! Join a local dance group to learn some new moves, take a Zumba class at the gym, or have a dance-off in your own living room!

    It’s not the place or the moves that matter. Studies show dancing reduces anxiety through being physically active and allowing you to connect the mind and body.

    So crank up the music and get moving!

    The 6 Best Exercises To Relieve Anxiety And Depression: https://www.simplemost.com/best-exercises-relieve-anxiety-depression/

    Studies suggest finding an exercise-buddy helps to beat the blues through social interaction.

    As people who exercise regularly report a higher sense of wellbeing and feeling more energetic, adding a friend to the mix will make exercise that much more fun!

    Exercise is proven to be one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Being around loved ones is also a natural stress reliever. An exercise buddy will help motivate you to get out when you’re feeling low, and give you something to look forward to when you lack the motivation to workout.

    Clutter can be a constant reminder that things which should be getting done, aren’t.

    Reasons why clutter can cause stress:

    -Excessive stimuli

    -Acts as a distraction

    -Not knowing when we’ll get to the bottom creates anxiety

    -Creates feelings of guilt

    -Causes frustration

    Straightening up even a small area will give you a sense of accomplishment to energize you enough to get through the next task.

    While clearing away clutter, ask yourself if the item is something that’s needed or wanted. If not, donate it by giving it to a friend or a local charity.

    Once the clutter is cleared, prevent it from building up again by having a designated spot for each item, and put everything back where it belongs before leaving the area.

    -a diffuser

    -a pot of hot water

    -a cotton ball

    -your palms or wrist

    Aromatherapy is based on the idea that specific fragrances can affect our moods.

    Here are some oils that may help!

    -lavender is a well-known calming agent

    -peppermint is a natural mood booster

    -basil will help fight fatigue

    -cedarwood or rose help alleviate anxiety

    Aromatherapy Mood Blends: http://hbnaturals.com/eoblends.asp?sponsorsite=100924

    When you’re feeling low, look for upbeat tunes to boost your vibe as various studies have examined the connection between mood and music. Music as therapy goes all the way back to Aristotle and Plato!

    The strong links between music and mood have led to the National Association for Music Therapy, American Association for Music Therapy, and the Certification Board for Music Therapists.

    Music therapists are now board certified to help patients with managing stress, enhancing memory, and alleviating pain.

    A study published in the World Journal of Psychiatry titled ‘Effects of music and music therapy on mood in neurological patients’ reports, that music engages numerous parts of the brain involving emotion and cognition. Music therapy has been recognized to be able to increase both emotional and cognitive function.

    Effects of music and music therapy on mood in neurological patients: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4369551/

    Studies show that muscular changes in our faces when we smile naturally elevate happiness.

    Fake it ‘till you make it! Simply looking happy can lead to a mood boost.

    Need a little help? Try laughing yoga! (Yes, laughing yoga is a real thing!)
