When a widespread tragedy like the covid19 lockdown stops us in our tracks, it becomes important to draw on our inner strength. This is the time to pause, reflect, bring wisdom, courage and care to ourselves, our loved ones and those around us.
Human beings have survived over 200,000 years, we are unique in every way, we have superior intelligence, articulate speech, are resilient, inspire others by embracing change like never before.
Let's ignite our strength from within, be grateful for our time at home, boost our immunity with nourishing homemade food, breathe deeply, meet our creative genius, do something you absolutely adore - often, calmly spread the spirit of love with everything we do.
Here are 7 simple steps to help you embrace your own home as a retreat...
STEP 1. KEEP CALM
Stress causes your body to release unwanted chemicals and hormones, making everything from your brain all the way down to your digestion go into survival mode. Make sure you're looking after your mind as much as your body. Awaken your gym from within, do something new, fun & exciting - listen to your intuition - Hell-lo there!
STEP 2. GET SOME SUNSHINE
Immerse yourself for at least 20 min in Sunshine a day to generate vital Vit D "Sunshine Vitamin". The best time is early morning and late afternoon it regulates your ability to absorb calcium/phos, strengthening the immune system, bones and teeth, reduces depression, boosts weight loss and our resistance to colds and flu.
STEP 3. SURROUND YOURSELF with GOOD ENERGY
Invest in a bedside salt lamp, an oxygen giving "Peace Lilly" or essential oil diffuser with lavender, jasmine, holy basil, bergamot, rose, ylang-ylang, frankincense, patchouli, lemon balm...any one you love will do - enjoy! Grow a plant, the same principle of caring and watching it grow is immensely satisfying, not to mention the added benefit of fresh oxygen the plants will bring into your home. Get close to an animal, they bring unconditional love and energy into your life, foster, invest or borrow a pet today? Even just the act of caring for them is truly healing for the soul.
STEP 4. GET ACTIVE
Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits. Regular activity can improve your quality of life. Re-discover your local park/bushland just before the sun gets up, notice the birds singing their hearts out, that's right, they're onto it - this is when nature throws out the most oxygen into the air, and when we breathe it in, it's in the most potent form. Start singing with the birds and enjoy every moment! Add a dip in the Ocean, go and dunk yourself in the SEA...yes, VITAMIN SEA, it's an extraordinary boost of endorphins, and for the quieter moments - seek online yoga, tai chi/chi gong classes for those deep breathing & meditative moments at the end of a deliciously fun day in nature!
STEP 5. GROW YOUR OWN FOOD
Times like these are proof of how vitally important it is to learn the joy of growing your own food. Be empowered by becoming independent once more, just like our great grandparents once where. Our supermarket shelves are full of long-life foods, 80% of the entire store is processed. Imagine walking out your back/front door and harvesting your own salad! Nothing tastes better than fresh from your food garden!!
Motivated by COVID lockdowns our local food security is everything. At Love Organic Living, we immediately sponsored the opening of the Gold Coast's 1st URBAN Farm. Our family company donated over 2,000 seedlings and helped bank 10,000 seeds to the Edible Potting Shed @ The Healthy Living Collective INC. A collective team of dreamers, decided it's time to make the Aussie backyard/front yard/verandah, a local food bowl/urban farm to be shared amongst your neighbours/family & friends. They offer FREE garden coaching - forever, on how to nail your own crops via all FB followers. See how it's done on their FB page: THE HEALTHY LIVING COLLECTIVE INC, New GC URBAN FARM is born...come join them online!
STEP 6. DRINK LOTS OF WATER & WARM DRINKS...
Warm herbal teas, LOL turmeric lattes, broths and soups soothe the soul. Staying hydrated ensures that the body can flush your system effectively and defend your body against colds/flu.
STEP 7. MAKE SURE YOU GET ENOUGH SLEEP -
To help you get there faster is WHY we developed our NEW MOON MILK...add in sachets.
Proper sleep helps you heal faster, improves memory, boost our mood, fight infections, helps balances our blood sugar and reduce high blood pressure...Let us help you sleep like a baby by making our NEW MOON MILK, soon to be your favourite bedtime drink.
