Receiving With Grace

As the seasons change, and spring charges full steam ahead, some of us are losing our minds as well as our health.

What can we do to face these transitions with more ease and a sense of lightness?

There is something we can do to regain our sense of calm and balance amidst chaos.

Do you know what it is?

You have the capacity to shift your state from crazy to chill in less than 3 minutes.

Believe that!

To calm down the crazy train, find a quiet space to sit and close your eyes. Take 3 deep breaths and give thanks to the universe or the creator for granting you the gift of breath.

Repeat inside your mind, “I’ve done nothing to earn my inhale, it simply comes. Thank you.”

Then, offer your exhale as a gift. Say in your mind, “I give back that which I receive.”

And, there is your cycle.

Do this for 3 full minutes, and watch how your mind and body will relax. Your heart opens up.

Love to you all!

Mark - I do this often – in the car, at work, where ever. Did you know by inhaling deeply for 2-3 sec. and exhaling for 4-6 sec. repeatedly that neuroscientists say your subconscious brain is fooled into thinking you are asleep. Thus you are switched into a relaxed state. You know, we’re only crazy to the extent of our capacity to function within our individual environment /society/ situation. Ain’t life grand? Haha

Do This To Feel Your Best!

I am excited to share that I rocked my Paleo detox! I finished the 30 day journey last week, and I’d like to share some key takeaways with you.

I know that some of you, like me, have been struggling with slow digestive systems, headaches, brain fog, fatigue, and skin breakouts. When I started the diet, I did so as an attempt to clear up some of these symptoms.

And, it worked! It worked in a big way!

My skin is brighter. I haven’t had stomach pain in a month, and my energy is so much greater. My mind is clearer, and I feel much lighter and happier in general. All of this from just 30 days of discipline.

I cannot recommend it enough– if you are suffering with some of the aforementioned symptoms, do the diet. Please send me any questions you have, and know that I am behind you, cheering you on every step of the way!

As it is with any new endeavor, the beginning is always the hardest part. Once you get through the first week, everything clicks into place and it gets much easier to enjoy the food you’re eating. Because you’ll begin feeling better very quickly, it motivates you to stay the course.

It is my greatest wish that all of you be happy, healthy and strong!

Week One Update – Paleo Detox

Wow! What a difference a week makes! Here’s the scoop about how I’ve been handling my paleo detox. Remember, I’ve committed to a strict 30 day no grains, legumes, dairy, alcohol or added sweeteners…yikes.

I’ve been traveling a bit, so I was worried this whole house of cards was going to crumble around me. But, I made myself so proud by sticking with this diet, and in doing so I’ve been rewarded.

I feel lighter in my step. Less achy, and much more clear headed. One way to describe my energy and state of mind, is “sharp.” My skin is clearing up, and the whites of my eyes are whiter.

All of this feels so good, and I can’t believe I’ve only been doing this for one week!!

Here’s a story for you.

A couple of days ago I felt the beginnings of a flu coming on– achey muscles and joints, the chills, and I was so tired. This just could not be happening right now! I will be on the road for two full weeks starting tonight. Needless to say, I was freaking out!

So, I stuck with my new eating plan, had some avocado, dashed out to pickup some zicam, and prayed. The next day, a miracle occurred. I felt totally fine.

This blew my mind. How could it be?

I don’t know if it’s because of the diet, or the zicam or the combination of both, but I’m into it!!

Going into week two, I haven’t been eating anything good enough to post for you guys. But, once I have access to a kitchen and both feet planted firmly on the ground again, I’ll make sure to get you all involved in the madness.

Until then, enjoy yourselves!
