Top Tips for Building Resilience

Building the skill of resilience is important any time, but even more with a global pandemic filled with uncertainty. Being resilient doesn’t mean we are a symbol of strength during hard times. It means we can persevere and come out stronger. Most, if not all of us, have bad days and feel anxious or depressed. And that is OKAY. Follow these top tips to weather the storm and come out stronger. 1) Practice gratitude daily. 2) Be okay with not being okay. 3) Exercise self care with daily physical activity, good food and mindfulness. 4) Practice optimism.

Health Begins in the Gut

If you know what depression feels like – the brain clouding, the flat moods, the tiredness – you’re not alone. You’ve likely felt butterflies in your stomach when you’re feeling nervous or anxious. Well, it turns out that the relationship between the brain and the gut is bi-directional. Our brains affect how our gut feels and our gut relays its signals of calm or alarm via the nervous system up to the brain. The goal when treating depression is to send a signal of safety – from your gut, from your mind and by lessening perceived stressors and burdens through detoxification.

What is Bioresonance Therapy?

Bioresonance therapy works to create harmony among all systems in the body by neutralizing disturbances caused by negative frequencies, and by strengthening the healthy frequencies of organs and cells. This allows the body to naturally restore and heal itself. For example, the kidneys have a specific group of frequencies that, when healthy, are harmonious with our body as a whole. However, if the kidneys are affected by bacteria, they will resonate with a different frequency, alerting to unhealthy cells. With this in mind, bioresonance therapy looks for the root causes of the illness/symptoms and works to neutralize them.

Pure Water for Pregnancy

Prenatal and postnatal infants have very weak immune systems, so the purity and safety of the water they ingest are extremely important. Typical chlorine or UV-light disinfection methods used by municipalities and bottlers are ineffective at eliminating the toughest bacteria and pathogens from tap and bottled water. Bottled water, although an essential disinfection method for preparing baby formula, can concentrate some harmful chemicals like nitrates or lead. Bottled and tap water often contain carcinogenic disinfection by-products like bromate or tri-halomethanes (THMs), which have been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, including miscarriages, birth defects, and low birth weights.

Fear of Falls Causes Unsafe Behavior

When someone is fearful of falling, they start to avoid everyday activities by staying at home and doing less. This lack of activity leads to loss of strength, reduced muscle tone, and loss of coordination and balance. This physical deterioration increases the risk of falling and if a fall does occur, it further heightens the fear. Turn your fear of falling into positive actions; remain active, exercise regularly, use assistive devices such as walkers or grab bars and wear sensible shoes. Consider joining a group session designed especially to teach balance exercises for fall prevention.

Reach Your Potential and Invest in Self Care

When you are on an airplane, the flight attendant always tells you to put on your mask before helping anyone else. Why? Because you are no good to anyone else if you aren’t well. The same goes for everyday life. If you want to reach your potential, invest in self-care. Here are two tips. 1) Schedule YOU time in your calendar as if it were an important meeting. Start with once a week and eventually, try for once a day. 2) Use that YOU time to do anything that helps YOU be well. Take a bath, read a book, watch a show, go for a walk, or, practice mindfulness.

How to Talk to Your Kids About the Coronavirus

DO: – Tell the truth about how you feel. It will make it safe for your child to do the same. – Remember that every child has a unique perception about what they hear and believe about COVID-19. – Listen with your heart, not your head. Allow kids to share their emotions without judgment or criticism. DON’T: – Don’t say “Don’t feel sad.” Sadness is a healthy and normal reaction to the possibility of someone they know getting sick. – Don’t make promises that you cannot keep. Instead of saying “Everything’s going to be okay,” say, “We’ll do everything we can to be safe.”
