Another year on its back
As we come to the end of another year, I would like to thank all my readers for your support. It was, indeed a crazy yet interesting year. On the one hand, we still had people living in fear, unfortunately, but on the other, people started to wake up. To live in a constant state of fear is not just bad for your overall health, but it can also wreak havoc on your psychological- and emotional well-being.
When you stress, worry, live in fear and/or is scared all the time, your immune system takes a huge knock. The fight-/flight mode happens when our bodies excrete adrenalin; especially when we are in a dangerous / scary situation. However, this is not a normal state of being. As in everything, there needs to be a balance. When the balance is tipped, our immune systems break down. Your body uses vitamin B6 & B12 to keep the immune system strong. During a stressful time, these vitamins are used first. When there is not enough “support” left, then dis-ease and illness set in.
So, what do you do? Keeping our immune systems strong is key. A healthy, balanced diet, coupled with exercise, enough sunlight / taking extra vitamin D and getting out into nature, are vital. Breathing oxygen in is extremely important. When we are not getting enough oxygen in, not only does our immune system start to unravel, but also our internal organs; especially our brain. Did you know that children need double the amount of oxygen than adults?
Another great way to stress less, is to stop listening to and reading about all the fear-mongering. Be aware of what is going on, but don’t stop living a life of laughter, joy and fun. Don’t give your power away and become emotionally involved. There is always a light at the end of every tunnel; there is always sunshine after a rainstorm; there is always something to be grateful for. Therefore, my readers, stay strong, stay positive, send love and light to the world and never let anybody / anything take away your power! Happy holidays and to those who are celebrating new year, have a wonderful, healthy and happy new year!
