As time goes by things change and what used to bring you joy may bring out sadness or hurt. Although these feelings are important to acknowledge, letting them get the best of you for too long can really take its toll on you and those around you. The holidays bring up a lot of things for many people including sadness when loved ones have passed, money stress, and overwhelm. There are things you can do that are natural, safe and can turn the sadness into joy, peace and acceptance. Trust me, this is my own experience.
The number one thing on my list for rebooting my mood and health is getting my weekly chiropractic adjustment in. It helps me handle emotional, physical and biochemical stress and my body and mind thank me in so many ways. I feel calmer, more connected to my environment and I know my cellular energy is being powered by better life force and nerve flow to all my organs, glands, muscles, joints and blood vessels.
The number two thing I do to get myself out of a rut is exercise that brings up my heart rate and makes me sweat. This raises endorphin levels which are our happy hormones. It also helps relax my body and mind and burns calories. Any exercise class, outdoor hike or walk, or a good gym session for 45 minutes minimum can be an amazing for a pick me up. Starting the day with exercise gets you out of the house and allows for an opportunity to provide self care that is vital for us in every way.
Number three, even before exercise, take time to do a spiritual practice when you wake up. Whether it be reading a passage in your favorite book, writing in your gratitude journal, or offering a kind word to a family or friend.
Number four, getting a daily dose of sunlight, Omega 3, Vitamin D, Magnesium, a great multivitamin like Catalyn or Do Terra supplement and essential oils, CBD oil, or any combination these are sure to bring a smile to your face and health to your body.
Number five, enjoy a good laugh with family, friends, or coworkers, share a smile or a hug, and brighten the darkest holidays and get you on the road to a happier you.
Number six, make sure to constantly check in with yourself. Sometimes when I am stressed, I notice that I am not breathing deeply, and it makes me more anxious. Deep belly breathing resets your parasympathetic nervous system and gets you out of fight or flight instantly. Using essential oils helps you breathe deeply and many like Frankincense, Lavender, and Cedarwood help ground the body and mind and force us to take a moment to breathe and center ourselves.
Number seven, take a break from social media, and your phone if you find it is causing you depression and anxiety. Taking a phone and device break can be freeing and very healing to the mind and body. I think we all get too locked into our devices and lose track of the present moment and the people we love.
