🧘♂️ Move your body regularly....... HOT YOGA is so AWESOME!!!!
🧘♂️ Don’t forget your *B VITAMINS* which support your nervous system....
*B VITAMINS* are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.

decide to supplement, please make sure your B complex vitamins contain
methylfolate (more bioavailable) instead of folic acid!!!!!
🧘♂️ Acupuncture is great for releasing stagnation and stress.
🧘♂️ MASSAGE with essential oils is so relaxing, and releases serotonin in the body.

WHY GET INTO THE ZEN?????
Simply because we live in a fast paced world with non stop noise from cell phone notifications, work related stress, deadlines, bills, traffic, toxins, environmental pollution, commercial foods, and lack of connection to nature and to oneself.
Our bodies cannot differentiate between the various types of stressors, and perceives all stressors the same.
Unfortunately, stress is the root cause of all diseases!!!!!!!
When under stress, the body is in a state called sympathetic dominance which is our fight or flight mode, designed for survival. This is when the the heart pumps faster, blood rushes to the limbs (for extra strength) and away from digestion preparing the body for fighting or escaping. Sympathetic dominance is designed for short periods of time.
Ideally , Our bodies are designed to be in parasympathetic dominance, also called rest and digest. This is when the body is calm, happy, digesting and healing.
I listed above a few ideas of how to mindfully get into your zen, and situate your body in Parasympathetic dominance that is essential for good health.
