Stress & Acidosis!

We all know that stress is not good for you. To much worry can be the cause of anxiety, and when you have constant anxiety, it takes a toll on your body. I have learned that acidosis means that there are high levels of acid within the body, which can cause the body’s pH levels to be imbalanced. Since stress can be the main reason for physical illness, it can also be one of the causes for acidosis. One thing (almost always) leads to another, eventually effecting your whole system…. and ultimately your well being. Your body’s pH should be in the range of 7.2 to 7.4. If it is lower than you are most likely in an acidosis state. You can check your pH levels buy purchasing a litmus paper. I believe most pharmacy’s sell them. This will give you a very good idea of where you are. If your body is experiencing a state of acidosis, you are “imbalance.” This imbalance can effect your health. However, you can get your body back on track by making healthy choices.

Food is one way to get your body running properly and out of the acidosis. Yup, you probably are already guessing that more fruits and veggies are to be added in your daily intake. It’s true and I don’t believe that will ever change. More fruits and even more veggies in your diet is the answer to a pH level of happiness and health. Meditate, drink plenty of water and make sure you sleep enough. This will help you stay ‘balanced.” 

If something feels off in your body, maybe check your pH level. It wont hurt to check it out!

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

Listening

Listening is code for “being present.” Are you a good listener? Do you multitask while in a conversation with someone? Not that multitasking is a bad thing, it’s just that you’re not exactly giving the other person your full attention if you’re……say, half there. You know what I mean? Personally, I’m no good at multitasking and find it stressful to try and do more than one thing at a time. All that running around creates internal craziness! Slow down, breath and listen to what your body is telling you. Practice being still. What does your mind tell you in silence? What messages are you receiving while you’re quiet? Sometimes being busy will create a sort of brain fog, and we become less aware of our surroundings or our priorities. Appreciate the people who are there for you and love you no matter what. Than show them. Being a good listener is a great way to show your appreciation for there friendship. A healthy relationship will reciprocate with gratitude!

Always put your health first no matter what that is. Health priorities are different for everybody. We all have different needs or issues regarding our health. Remember putting your health first is smart, not selfish :-)

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

The good fat

Yes there is such a thing as good fat!  I don’t mean on your body…. Ha! The good fat I refer to is in food. Yea I know, you probably don’t care about the “good fat” in food that is very important to your health and weight. Would you rather read something in reference to a magic pill that could melt away your body fat? Yes? Ok good, because hear it is…… Eat good fat! So many people who strive to loose weight or perform better are loosing sight in the actual facts and reality. You must eat fat — the GOOD FAT to feed your brain and muscles for optimum performance. I have found that some people are so desperate to either loose weight, or improve physical endurance that they forget the basics. Yes, you can do anything you want to, however you want to if you have the will to do it. That’s great, that’s awesome, that’s superb…. if you’re talking about long/short term goal setting. I am talking about your physical health and well being which is undoubtedly tied in to your emotional well being (remember it’s all connected). So yes, you can do anything you want to but not however you want to when it comes to feeding your body for optimum performance. I’m talking to those who are afraid of food. Yes you!There is no secret, no short cut to a healthy mind and body. It’s all really simple if you allow it to be. Stick to the basics, they wont steer you wrong.

Don’t avoid the good fats. Like and engine, your body needs, craves the good fats such as; avocado, salmon, and almonds. It’s essential for weight loss as well as maintaining your mental well being. Good fats keep depression, fatigue and memory fog at bay. If you’re complaining of exhaustion or achy joints, try eating more healthy fats. Stop avoiding the good stuff for fear of calories. You burn off the good fats quicker and you’ll feel much better with your workouts or in general. Fuel your engine with a healthy dose of good fats and notice the difference in your mood and your daily performance, whatever that may be! Bottom line, your brain needs the good fat to be healthy. That goes for every area in your life.

Bouncing back

I want to talk about resilience and how I’ve been knocked down many times but got my ass back up after each blow. I got up not because I was still breathing (although barely), but because I didn’t want to give up trying. This is resilience. Many of us will be knocked down time and time again, but make the decision to come back stronger and better. Learn from your failures and commit to rise above. Take action to change your course of direction. This will encourage you to press forward believing in the greater good. That there is one, and you will eventually reap the rewards. It helps to believe in something other than yourself, although you are a good place to start. Develop your power within. You have it, we all have it. You can rebound from what life threw at you. Again, It’s your decision. Bounce back. Find your faith, hope, and believe that you will overcome!

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Nelson Mandela

Goals

Are you a goal setter? If so, do you jot them down?

Ahhhh yes, this is a problem. Most people, including myself, tend to not write there goals down on paper. This is huge because when you write something down on paper you are simply intending on it to happen. From there you instill in your mind a call to action. Plus, who doesn’t like “checking things off the list?”

Another note to pay attention to is when setting goals, be very specific. Don’t just say something like, “My goal is to open a bakery.” Your goal must be much more specific such as; ” I will start baking from my home and introduce my baked goods to friends and neighbors to get a feel for what will work and what wont.”

Taking action is most obvious to achieving your goals. Don’t think to much, just do! If you have a good plan written down, your specific and realistic then make it happen!

When you progress towards meaningful goals you are on your way to a happier healthier you. Psychologists today are in agreement on the effects goal setting has on people today. Why not think on a few reasonable goals and work toward that dream you had since a young child? Be inspired, motivated and believe in you. Prioritize you.

“Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.” Brian Tracy

“Purpose is what gives life meaning.” C.H. Parkhurst

“Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.” Seneca

” A goal is a dream with a deadline.” Napoleon Hill
