Good day lovely readers of my blog,
Today in our Eat Well Feel Well class I spoke about how sleep, stress and sex impacts your overall health and well-being. The yoga portion of the class was challenging, yet rewarding as we each balanced and came close to our personal "edge".
Each week I provide a thought provoking take-home sheet with 4 challenges. This week, I'm sharing them with you because they are so important if you want to move your body to it's most optimal state of well-being. Most people are okay with feeling "okay". I challenge you to not be "okay" with this. As health is not merely the absence of disease, as you will see I talk about this a lot in person and on my blog. Health is feeling fabulous most days of the week, feeling confident and making good food choices.
These are my challenges, I hope you try them out and let me know how you feel!
Identify people or situations that bring you Sleep this one is an easy task! Get to bed by 11pm at least 3 times for the next 7 days. Notice how much better you feel the next day. Even going to bed 15 minutes earlier than you normally do will have a huge impact on your health, well-being and appetite controlling hormones.
Avoid using the TV or your computer 1.5 hours before bed. Instead read, meditate, listen to relaxing music to calm your central nervous system.
If you have low sex drive, focus on eating foods that increase your libido . Identify these foods and how they make you feel in your food journal.
Oh and if you are anywhere in Canada freezing your butt off today, here's a soup recipe to warm you from your toes to your nose that is healthy and deliciously joyous! BUTTERNUT SQUASH PEAR SOUP.
Warmest wishes today and always,
