Healing Starts Inside
Cell phones, technology, the internet, media, web connections . . .
We are entwined in a global tech web that while connecting us is also, ironically, isolating us and delivering massive levels of anxiety, depression and a disconnect from our natural world.
We need time to chill. Stop. Breathe. Relax. Sleep.
This is when our bodies heal. Rest renews us, calms us, strengthens our brain and our memory, boosts our beauty and supports every function in the body. And, while most of us instinctively know we need to slow down occasionally, we’re often quick to skimp here, looking for any opportunity to cram just one more thing into our day.
When was the last time you actually stopped “doing” (outside of vacations, of course) long enough to relax, notice a sunset, breathe, actually taste your food, sit quietly or take a leisurely walk without worrying about the next thing you had to check off your list?
Occasional stress is normal – we’re built to handle it.
Constant stress is a whole different story and eventually overwhelms the body. It causes our immune systems to go haywire, turns us gray, wrinkles our skin, screws up our digestive and hormonal systems, damages the brain, fogs our thinking, and ages us prematurely.
Luckily your body is so damn smart and resilient, it can handle much of the abuse you throw at it.
It knows exactly what it’s supposed to do and regenerates itself every moment of every day to keep you functioning at peak performance – without you ever lifting a finger.
Your job is to get out of its way.
Slow down. Meditate. Stretch. Nap. Sleep. Plant your feet in the grass, let the wind touch your skin. BE STILL, and let your body go to work!
