Making an effort

The eating well challenge

I am on a road trip, that means keeping my healthy habits is going to be a challenge. Every time I stray off my routine it is challenging to eat well and rest properly. But this time I decided that I was going to make a huge effort. I have my blender with me, all my vitamins, the protein powder, the oils, the chia seeds. All were packed and are joining me on the trip.

The hardest part is to keep the refrigerated things ok, but it is going quite well.I have a good stock with me because the next time I will find a whole foods store is probably after 5 day´s in New York.

It is really about the ME time, putting us first

I was talking to a friend about this, and recalling the oxygen-mask story. The oxygen mask theory is basically based on the things the stewardess say´s before takeoff. If the oxygen in the plane drops put the mask on you first and then assist the child.

It is pretty basic, if we do not take care of ourselves, we are in no shape to take care of others.


Water and oxygen

Deutsch: Stilles Mineralwasser, d.h. kohlensäu...Have you ever had the plumber come to your house and cut off the water? It is then you realize how important the water is. We use it without a thought, we do not acknowledge  the importance of it untill it is not accessible anymore.

Oxygen  we rarely think about either. I had  a frightening experience about eight years ago.

I had a demanding job, four kids and I was taking some courses at the university as well. It came to a point that, I could not breathe. It felt like I could only use 50% of my lung capacity. It was stress catching up with me once again. It frightened me all the way into a yoga class. That was one of my first sessions of yoga.  I have been in and out since. Deep breath is highly underestimated and the best thing is that it is for free!

Breathe in- breathe out!

A healthy person has many wishes. A sick person has only one wish, getting health back.
