Are you aware of your body’s unique need for movement? You are already constantly in motion whether you are aware of it or not. The heart pumps 60-100 beats per minute, you breath at 12-16 breaths every minute, the nerves in your body are constantly firing, and even when you are sleeping there is movement…of the eyes, of the muscles. You are never really still, until you are dead. So why not honor the bodies need to be in motion? What negative experiences have you associated with exercise?

We know that many of the sugars included in our foods today are considered to be some of the worst additions to our diet. Too much sugar in a modern day can result in a whole catalog of preventable illnesses and ailments that would have been reduced had a natural substitute for sugar been used. Stevia could well be this product. 'Stevia rebaudiana' is a plant which grows naturally in Peru and other subtropical ecosystems in South America, and is used as a natural sweetener for health and weight management. Studies have shown that stevia's natural sugars are non-caloric, they are around 300 times sweeter than regular sugar, and they do not produce of the health problems associated with artificial sweeteners, which include diabetes, obesity and even depression.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Wellness-Blueprint.jpg

We have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing. How many times a day do we stop and appreciate all five of these senses? How likely are we to notice our sense of touch unless there is an unpleasant one such as pain or extreme heat or cold? How often is our sense of hearing dulled by constant background noise of people talking, phones ringing, copiers running? How often do we just look up and notice all of the brilliant colors in our place of work or even outside our window? Do you stop to taste your food or do you simply inhale it down so that you can get on with your busy day? The answers to these questions should bring you to an acute awareness of what you might be missing!

I was hanging out with a friend of mine in Atlantic Station a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at the number of women I saw walking around casually with their 4 inch spike heels. The question surfaced, "Is it possible to be cute without destroying your body?" The answer is yes!

Have you ever received a compliment from someone you didn’t know? Have you ever given a compliment unexpected and noticed the joy that spread across the person’s face? Often, we get into our own little world and we forget the impact that just one "thank you" or acknowledgement or compliment can mean to someone else. We never know how someone’s day is going.

Sometimes it’s hard to know when to set the final boundary in friendships and relationships before releasing people.

The simplest question however is to ask yourself, "Is this healthy for me?"

Warning: There is a difference between boundaries set for your own serenity and mental well-being and ultimatums set to control another person. Let’s look more closely at this.

That crazy old adage "you are what you eat" actually has some validity in this day and age. Many of the foods sold on our grocer’s aisles are filled with preservatives, added salt and sugar. And for those of us who are sensitive to additives such as Monosodium glutamate (MSG), or red and yellow dyes this can really affect the relative condition of your sensitivity.
