- Our health consists of more pillars. It’s how we fuel our body, how we take care of it and how we think. I called this connection Mind, Body, Spirit. Running from one errand to another, being busy and stressed out all the time, eventually leads to disease. I have been there. I used to be an international lawyer, lived in 5 different countries and working long hours. I was obsessed with my career and just wanted to be the best in everything I did. I never stopped, until my health said enough! At the age of 26, I was diagnosed with burnout and my body collapsed completely.
I believe physical disease, starts first on a mental level. We are tired, weak, sleepy and we cannot get our head thinking straight, but we keep on pushing. We don’t listen, until our body has enough. So, in my opinion, everything happens for a reason. Being absolutely down, means fresh beginning and new start. Life gives you the opportunity to reprogram yourself. But where to begin? How to improve our lifestyle? Let’s return to the pillars now. You will need to change your mindset and how you take care of yourself:
Start writing gratitude diary. Every day write 3 things you are grateful for. In one month, your life will start shifting.
Meditate. Even 5 or 10 minutes per day is enough. Just close your eyes and breath in through your nose and breath out through your mouth.
Eat healthy, nutritious food and take supplements. It is very important that you eat whole foods, which give your body energy and strength. I recommend you check your blood picture, from which you can see what your body is missing, and add that in a form of supplements and appropriate foods.
Start with exercise. But don’t do trainings, which will exhaust your body even more. I recommend workout, which includes pilates, yoga, strength training with your own weight and interval training. Also walking and speed walking is very healthy. But don’t do running, cycling, lifting heavy weights and crazy workouts, which different fitness studios offer. Hiring a personal trainer, who you can tell your problems and he or she designs a special workout for you is great.
Do Face Yoga. Face Yoga Exercises are through Chinese medicine connected to your inner organs. It helps with creating natural facelift, removing your wrinkles, double chin and dark circles. But with every exercise, you are improving your immune system too. Helps with concentration and lowering you stress level
