4 ways to stop shaming yourself in your life!

4 ways to stop shaming yourself in your life!
Do you have a voice in your head that tells you things like: You'll never get this right. What's wrong with you? You're too sensitive, no wonder no one likes you.

Well, first of all, I'm sorry to hear that—no one should have to deal with a voice like that! 

But if you're struggling with unkind or self-depricating thoughts and wondering why they seem so persistent, then read on. 

Are you listening to the Dis'ease' in your body to prevent Disease?

Are you listening to the Dis'ease' in your body to prevent Disease?
Growing up I watched my parents ignore their bodies and internalized more than I realized. I decided that, as an adult, when I feel something is not feeling comfortable in my body, I will do something to support a change.

Hi! My name is Tanya and I'm a sugar addict.

Hi! My name is Tanya and I'm a sugar addict.
This is in no way supposed to be funny.  I really am serious.  Sugar is a drug and sugar is addictive.

Just read this for more information about how sugar acts in the body.

I remember as a kid eating sugar out f the sugar bowl as a kid.  Instant boost!

Now, as an adult, I've realized that I'm a binge eater and also I have bad withdrawals.  When my blood sugar drops, I get angry!  I've seen this in my daughter as well.

So, with other addictions you cannot have any of said substance or you'll go back to dependency. I've found this to be true for me.  If I have sweet treats in my house, I can't stay away from them.  Holidays are the hardest because I overeat and I can't stop.

Of course abstinence is the best option, but I want to have some treats as long as I'm being intentional.  I've found the best thing for me is to have rules.

That's why I've found Intermittent Fasting (IF) to be the best for me.  I can have a sweet treat everyday and then not overindulge.  I'm not spiking my blood sugar all day long and some days I don't even crave anything anymore.  I don't usually eat before 11 am so it works well for me to have a late afternoon treat or a dessert.

On days that are special or a day that I fall off the bandwagon, I don't blame, shame, or have guilt anymore.  Eating should not be linked to stress because that leads to horrible changes in the body as far as energy and hormones.  This can further lead to weight gain and inflammation.

That's why my course doesn't restrict all sugar.  Restrictive diets leave us feeling shame and guilt and we often just fall back to old habits.  We need to reduce the cravings and enjoy sweets and carbs in moderation. Our thought patterns around food need to be positive and I include daily affirmations to reinforce this.  My course will have you developing new patterns and new food choices so that it becomes a lifestyle not a diet!  One of my favorite affirmations from the course is "I can make mistakes and be OK."

 Read this for more on the psychology. 

Want a detox course that you can do anytime you want?  

It's designed to be done several times throughout the year so you can make incremental changes and build new habits.  I also have a FB group to help with accountability.  It's super affordable because everyone needs this course sometime!

Chronic back pain have you feeling blue? I totally get it!

Chronic back pain have you feeling blue?  I totally get it!
🌖This month's oil for Full Moon yoga. We added a drop to our tea and enjoyed the earthy aroma and flavor! I'm excited to use Copaiba this winter for my achy needs.

There is nothing worse for mental health than chronic pain.  That's why I make pain management a priority in my life!

Every winter, I struggle with aches and pains, headaches, and fatigue. Last year, I discovered a  muscle rub that I love! Anytime, my neck felt stiff and achy, I would rub the muscle rub on and sleep so much better! 

Also, a daily magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin b, and omega 3 has been wonderful for the unrest I've been feeling in my body. I take a shot of my antioxidant juice with them. It really takes the edge off during the homeschool day when wine isn't an option!

🍵So, this year, I'm trying cobaiba vitality oil in my coffee or tea since I really enjoy the flavor. It can be added to a veggie capsule too!

Here's a great blog all about Copaiba's uses!

5 Ways to Find Relief from Seasonal Changes

5 Ways to Find Relief from Seasonal Changes
Growing up I was surrounded by allergens from cigarette smoke to dog hair.  I also had my fair share of sugar in my diet!  I was sick most Springs and Summers through adulthood.  It often led to a very croaky deep voice and bronchitis or sinus infections, which meant I needed antibiotics at least once a year.  I also decided to use Flonase to prevent these seasonal discomforts.  Well, not anymore!!

Here are the changes that I made in my household and in my body so I don't need pharmaceuticals and I don't get sick anymore.
  1.  I eat right (most of the time).  I reduce sugar, processed foods, and dairy.  I eat raw honey and foods rich in Vitamin C.
  2. I take supplements. I take a high quality probioticdigestive enzymes, drink an antioxidant juice, spray my throat with Thieves, and Inner Defense(If you want any of these supplements, I would love to help you get started with Young Living.  I'd love to chat! My member number is 14813480.)
  3. I clean the air in my home.  I have an air purifier, plants that clean the the air.  I dust somewhat regularly and diffuse Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint.                        
  4. I keep my nasal passages clean. I use an all natural nasal spray and neti pot.
  5. I do facial yoga, massage, and breathing. Here is a video of Lion breath and Alternate nostril breathing.

I hope you can find some relief from any of these ways to manage seasonal discomfort.  

How I keep from sounding like an 80 year old smoker every Spring and Fall!

I was miserable every time the season changed! It often required me to get antibiotics for sinus infections or bronchitis.

After adding these 5 changes into my life, I can now say Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons. I've been without antibiotics for over 5 years now!!
