This is our second episode featuring author Victoria Moran. Today she discusses how you can “MEND” yourself to your best life ever. Another must listen!
ARE YOU EXISTING; NOT REALLY LIVING?
So many people are just going through the motions day by day. They say they have no time for fun or even taking care of their health. If you are not happy and do not have your health; you are not living! This is your life and you get one chance to live it. Guess what? No matter what life
M.E.N.D. YOUR LIFE!
Victoria’s MEND program = Meditation + Exercise + Nourishment + Detoxification
Focus on what is within. Study after study PROVES that people who meditate have healthier lives! 20 minutes of meditation in the morning after you wake up and 20 minutes after your workday before your evening starts are the best times to meditate daily. Dr. Dave uses the Insight Timer on his phone to help him with his daily morning meditations. Learn more here: https://insighttimer.com/.
Listen to Victoria talk about one of her favorite studies about meditation that showed that those who had meditated daily for 5 years in a row; actually had the health of someone 12 years younger! Wowza!
“Start your day by taking care of ME!” says Victoria, “think about ME in the morning and it is NOT selfish! If you are blessed with the ability to move and you do not; it is a tragedy.” Cardio gives you the endurance to live your live better; Weight training gives you the strength to live your life better; Flexibility gives you the mobility to live your life better. Listen to how little Victoria took on Goliath in the park!
“We want to nourish ourselves in every possible way,” says Victoria. This could be your food, your juice, your home, your bedroom, or even the people you have in your life. “Aging Magnificently” is a phrase that Victoria has come to love.
Juicing is so amazing for your health. Juicing fruits and vegetables infuses your body with fantastic nutrition. It is energy and the life force rushing through your body. In 2015, make it a point to get a juicer and have a daily glass of green veggie & fruit juice. Listen to Victoria and Dave talk about juicing and smoothies.
Another fantastic thing you can do for yourself each day is to have a salad filled with fresh in season vegetables.
DRINK WARM LEMON WATER FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
Drink a glass of warm water with lemon in the morning for detox benefits. “It also facilitates a morning bowel movement, which is so important to health,” says Victoria.
TONGUE SCRAPING IS AMAZING FOR YOUR HEALTH
Scraping your tongue 12 times with each morning with a stainless steel tongue scraper is a common health practice. It removes toxins and bad bacteria and is amazing for your breath. Add this to your dental routine along with brushing and flossing daily.
DO NOT USE TOXIC FACE AND BODY PRODUCTS
Learn about what you are putting on your face and body. There are so many good and healthy choices. There is a great website called The Environmental Working Group that can tell you all about these body products, what is in them, and how they were tested. “The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Our mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment” excerpt from: http://www.ewg.org/about-us
LIVING IN PEACEFUL SURROUNDINGS
Is your home peaceful? Is it full of clutter? Is simple and organized? Have you painted it in colors that you enjoy and soothe you? Take a look around your home. Take time to de-clutter it and release unwanted and unneeded items. Take them to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army store to benefit people in need. Keep only what you love and cherish. Also take time to decorate with art, photos, flowers, and colors that you love and make you feel good every time you look at them.
