Help with body pain and stiffness

So I was sitting here wondering how to fix my aches and pains that I deal with from exercise.  It was brought to my attention that using a tennis ball to roll under your feet, back and everywhere else that hurts is quite the affective tool!  Tried, and is 100% approved!  Give it a try!

Stuffiness, coughing, sinus problems?

Fill up a bowl of steaming hot water.  Drop 8-10 drops of oil of oregano into the bowl, plop a towel over your head, breath nice and deep over the bowl for about 8-10 minutes.  You can do this up to twice a day.

Delicious smoothie recipe before Winter hits!

  • 1 quart strawberries, hulled
  • 1 banana, broken into chunks (freeze an hr before if you want a more icecream consistency)
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 cup orange-peach-mango juice (or something similar)
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 tbs of virgin coconut oil (optional)

Reducing your blood pressure, destressing

We all know meditation at least 20-40 minutes a day is incredible for your mind and body.  Unfortunately, not everyone has the ability to take that much time in their day to do so.  So here is a trick I've seen on Dr Oz... and it really helps!

Everyday you MUST do this... it helps relieve stress, tension and even helps with headaches while avoiding health problems such as high blood pressure, tension headaches, etc.  You can do this as long as you need to, or as many times of the day you'd like.  Normally i'll do this twice a day for about 3-5 minutes when I don't have time to do my normal meditation.

Relax comfortably in a seated position.  Rest your hands on top of your thighs upwards if you need more energy or downwards if you need to be more grounded.

Breath deep, listen to your heartbeat.  Focus on every beat.  Then shift your focus of your heartbeat into the palms of your hands.  Feel your hands throbbing at the beat of your heart.  You're basically shifting your energy and your blood downwards which creates clarity and peacefulness throughout your body and your mind.

Hope this helps make your days a little more relaxing!
