“You cannot start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.”

Just like turning the pages of a book, life offers us endless opportunities for growth and transformation. Yet, too often, we find ourselves stuck in the same old chapter, replaying past mistakes or dwelling on missed opportunities.

But here’s the truth: 👇

You cannot rewrite the past, but you have the power to shape your future. Your health journey is no exception. You cannot achieve your wellness goals if you’re constantly tethered to:

– Old habits

– Unhealthy patterns

– Or negative self-talk

Instead, I dare you to turn the page. Release the weight of yesterday’s choices and setbacks, for they do not define you. Each moment is a fresh opportunity to nourish your body, mind, and spirit.

So, let go of the past with gratitude for the lessons it taught you, and step boldly into the unknown. Embrace the adventure of discovering:

– New foods

– New activities, and

– New ways of caring for yourself

Remember, the journey to health is not about perfection; it’s about progress.

Celebrate every small victory along the way and keep moving forward, one step at a time.

Trust in your ability to create the life and the health you deserve. 💗

Morning routine to help keep anxiety at bay

Are you are struggling with stress and/or anxiety?

If so, try this calming morning routine to help keep stress and anxiety at bay 🤍

  1. Hydrate: Start your day by drinking a glass of water with lemon and a pinch of salt (optional) to rehydrate your body after a night’s rest. Prepare this the night before and keep it in the fridge for the morning.
  2. Mindful Breathing: Begin your day with a few minutes of mindful breathing. Sit or lie comfortably, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Inhale deeply through your nose, allowing your abdomen to rise, then exhale slowly through your mouth, releasing any tension.
  3. Stretching or Yoga: Incorporate gentle stretching or yoga poses into your morning routine to loosen up your muscles and promote relaxation. Focus on slow, deliberate movements and deep breathing.
    Gratitude Practice: Reflect on what you’re grateful for. Consider keeping a gratitude journal and writing down three things you’re thankful for each morning.
  4. Healthy Breakfast: Fuel your body with a nutrient-dense breakfast to kickstart your day. Choose foods rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats to provide sustained energy and stabilize blood sugar levels.
  5. Sunlight On Your Face: Spend a few minutes outdoors or by a window, allowing natural sunlight to touch your face. Sunlight exposure can help regulate your circadian rhythm and boost your mood by increasing serotonin levels.
  6. Set Intentions: Set positive intentions for the day ahead. Visualize how you want your day to unfold and focus on what you can control. Choose affirmations or mantras that resonate with you and repeat them silently or aloud.
  7. Plan Your Day: Take a few minutes to plan your day and prioritize tasks. Break down your to-do list into manageable steps and allocate time for self-care and relaxation. Having a clear plan can help reduce feelings of overwhelm and anxiety.If you’re seeking extra support and guidance on your journey to overcoming stress, stay tuned, as I am committed to sharing the ways in which natural solutions can empower you (and me…) to live a more stress-free life.
