CODE: (Write down the 1st letter of each bullet point. Take these letters and unscramble them to reveal the two-word acronym relating to the title of this blog).

  • Eat more whole, unprocessed foods.  To quote Jack Lalane, Americas original fitness guru over 50 years ago, “If man made it, don’t eat it.”
  • Understand balance (or imbalance) is the key to health or “dis”ease and strive consciously to achieve balance in exercise, rest, work, play and family time.
  • Hear what your body is saying and listen to it. (Do you need…More rest? More exercise? Better food choices?)
  • Your body or mind created the physical problem and can also find the solution.
  • Align with your higher self – that little voice, which steers you, when you are quiet and calm  towards peace and health.  Take time to listen to it via meditation or nature time with yourself.
  • Harness the power of your mind. Are your thoughts hurting or healing you?  A great short and wonderful reference by Louise Hays called “Heal Your Body,” can help you in this area.
  • List the things you are grateful for and contemplate them daily.  It will get your mind off the negative and into the positive and help your body feel better.
  • You are the solution to any physical pain or discomfort. That’s right….If you are pro-active you are looking for the answer and not being a victim perpetuating the problem. You can never heal or feel healthy with a victim’s mentality.
  • Ouch!  If it hurts (physically or mentally) to do a particular exercise, movement or thought pattern, please stop and try something that feels good. It may mean doing the complete opposite of what you are doing.
  • Today is the most important day (do not worry about tomorrow or what did not happen yesterday)
