Is All This Cleansing Really Going To Help My Emotional Health?

Elder Spring Cleaning

“Help! I’m buried in spring cleaning!”

Are you having trouble finding your way out of the mess you created trying to get your spring cleaning done?

“Guilty as charged!”

When you pass through a transition in your life, sometimes the cleaning is so bitter sweet that it stirs up your world physically, mentally and spiritually.

I want to encourage you to keep on pushing through the mess until you bring your home the harmony that you deserve.

When you pull out all the assorted accumulation from the past, you may find that you can’t just toss it away and move on.

People make a living out of helping others get organized because it is a challenging thing to do for those who aren’t.

If you are highly efficient and organized, then I salute you!

If you aren’t, don’t sweat it!  Start from your bedroom and work your way out.

When the first and last thing you see every day is clean and organized, the rest of your life will become more clean and organized.


Why should you care about cleanliness?

I mean you wouldn’t want to smell, so you shower everyday, but the house work just never stops and is always going to be there, right?

Is there really any health benefit to spring cleaning?

How in the world can pulling everything out of the closet and making a bigger mess possibly help?!

For years I felt that spring cleaning was a waste of time.  Heck, spring cleaning was a dirty word!

This spring, I am embracing the season with a thorough purging of things un-needed.

At 44, with my daughters giving me teenage challenges and my little 4 year old boy struggling to get a word in edge wise, spring cleaning stirred up the realization that I have passed into a new chapter in my life.

This year I feel a need to pull all that “stuff” out of the boxes and see if I truly need to keep holding on to it.

The process brought up many old memories that I would rather not remember.  It made me realize that I still harbor anger over events that happened a long time ago.

My anger is more irritation than rage, but when the “old stuff” reminded me of events from the past, and old anger surfaced, I was very aware that I had just released energy that had been harming me.

My light mood for the past week has reminded of the huge benefits gained from stirring up old feelings and releasing them all over again.  It wasn’t the first time, and it probably won’t be the last.

Every time you cause old emotions to surface Continue reading Is All This Cleansing Really Going To Help My Emotional Health?

Can a Detox Diet Help You Bring Your Life Into Focus?

detox diet

There aren’t enough hours in the day!

Seriously!  How do YOU get everything done?

Do you ever feel like you are chasing your tail?

That tail chasing feeling is usually accompanied by the nagging feeling that you are forgetting something.

Would you like more energy, more calm confidence, AND the ability to heal your suffering?

That is what a Sacred Breathing can do for you.

The problem is that unless you have some ulterior motive to improve performance, or your singing voice, you’re not likely to stick with the application of breath building exercises.

Are you sick and tired of being tense, stiff, and downright irritable?

If you don’t have time to make lifestyle changes and you don’t have time for food prep, what can you do?

Do you feel powerless to make changes that will help you?


How can a detox diet help stop the insanity?

Decrease the toxic load you are carrying around and you will reverse disease!

The 7 Stages of Disease

1.  nervous exhaustion

Not enough fuel.

2.  toxicity

Resulting from lack of energy.

3.  irritation

From building toxicity.

4.  inflammation

That’s when you feel it!

5.  ulceration

Toxicity eats away at tissues.

6.  induration

Your body tries to encapsulate the toxicity to protect itself.

7.  cancer

When the cells of your harmonious organism turn against you.

Irritation is actually one of the stages of disease!

The best way to get YOUR disease process moving backwards towards health is to pay attention to rest and diet.

For Starters:

  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of WATER every day.
  • Nurture positive relationships.
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables in as close to a natural state as possible.
  • Make yourself top priority.

A detox diet is about making your insides cleaner so that your view of your life is crystal clear.

If you are just too over whelmed to make detox diet changes today, then let food be your medicine.

Add a nutritional supplement to your morning routine and see if that doesn’t make you feel better!

When you feel better, you’ll feel up to making more positive change!

Definition Of Happiness: Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breath?

Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breathing?

In fact science tells us that your breathing will determine the length and quality of your life!

Count your breathes per minute.  Is it under 10/minute?  You might want to have someone else count, since as soon as you put your focus on your breathing you alter it.

Lung volume is a primary marker for how long you will live, but breathing efficiently is much more than taking a deep breath.

Bad breathing habits erode healthy breathing without you even noticing.

Past the mid twenties the average person loses 9–25% of their lung capacity per decade!

When I started teaching rehabilitation, I thought that the cause of this decline in lung function was from “couch potato syndrome”.  You know, from not moving enough.

Inactivity sure has a lot to do with disease, but I saw folks who were always working and pushing themselves too hard!

They weren’t lazy, but they had rapid-shallow-breathing and they just couldn’t seem to catch their breath!

Do you know why these hard working folks suffered the same shallow breathing that couch potatoes do? Continue reading Definition Of Happiness: Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breath?

How Do You Take Care of Yourself When You Don’t Have Time To Catch Your Breath?

Life can keep you running 24/7!

Even my retired friends tell me they just don’t know where the days go.

They say they got more done when they were chasing their tails.  Some have jumped into new activities that keep them just as busy as ever.

Sound familiar?

Do you take care of yourself?

Catch your breath

The most important way to “catch your breath” is by finding the time to relax every muscle in your body and be still, for a few minutes everyday.

  • Releasing the tension will actually allow you to breathe more deeply.
  • By checking in with yourself, you allow a chance to get centered, and to find out “how you are”.
  • Just becoming aware of your feelings, offers the opportunity to release them.
  • When you have “arrived” at a state of relaxation, you are able to access your intuition, and your day becomes much more efficient.
  • Surrender is a very beneficial vantage point, accepting what IS allows you to move forward.
  • Though it seems like relaxation should come naturally, it actually requires consistent practice to get results.


Down Time Is Important BUT So Is Being Active!

  •  Inactivity will lead you to an early death.
  • Your heart is a muscle, if you don’t give it work to do, it will become progressively weaker.
  • If you are concerned about diabetes, depression, or heart failure, you should be concerned about getting active!

Catch your breath, and then find an active way to enjoy your day!
