August is National Wellness Month

Are you ready to prioritize your well-being and make positive changes in your life? We believe in nurturing the body, mind, and spirit for overall health and happiness. We also believe that we are created to live a healthy, fulfilling life. Today, we want to share with you some key aspects of wellness that we will be focusing on this month: hydration, sleep, gut health, and reducing toxic stress.
Hydration: Water is essential for our bodies to function properly. Proper hydration supports digestion, circulation, body temperature regulation, and overall brain function. Most people simply fail to drink enough water every day. Stay refreshed and energized by prioritizing your daily water intake.
Sleep: Quality sleep is vital for our physical and mental well-being. It allows our bodies to rest, repair, and recharge. Are you getting enough good quality sleep? Be sure to turn off all electronic devices (ideally, keep them out of the bedroom) and avoid eating before going to bed. Take several deep breaths (inhale deeply and exhale fully) as you get ready for bed and visualize letting the cares of the day float away on those exhalations.
Gut Health: A healthy gut is crucial for our overall wellness. Did you know that nearly 70% of our immune system resides in our gut? It is wise to avoid processed foods and fast food because they often contain ingredients that disrupt the balance of good and bad bacteria that is critical to gut health. Eat fresh, local, organic (when available) fruits and vegetables when they’re in season and limit your intake of sugar.
Toxic Stress: Stress is an inevitable part of life, but toxic stress can wreak havoc on our well-being. So, what is toxic stress? It is prolonged, severe, or chronic stress without adequate support to address and ease its negative effects. Let's explore effective strategies to manage stress and discover the power of essential oils to support relaxation and emotional balance. Repeated and/or extreme activation of stress hormones can increase levels of inflammation in the body. Over time, this can damage the cardiovascular and immune systems. It reduces your ability to cope with normal, everyday stressors and robs you of a joyful life.
National Wellness Month is an opportunity for us to make smarter choices when it comes to our health. We want to empower you with the knowledge and resources needed to build a foundation of wellness and make informed decisions for your body, mind, and spirit.
Join us on this wellness journey as we dive deeper into these topics and share valuable insights, tips, and guidance. Together, let's prioritize our well-being and create a life of balance and vitality. Here's to a month filled with smarter choices and a healthier, happier you!
