Wellness Tips :)

Please always consult your physician and family for advice and guidance. 


As a mom, along with my family, we have all experienced the stresses that are a part of life. According to CDC.gov and Heart.org there is a list of disease-causing statistics, affecting and rising more in children. Together may we connect, learn and work together to improve our overall health so that we, especially our children, can flourish in all aspects of life. According to both CDC.gov and Heart.org having FUN helps promote healthy living!! :)

Mind, Body and Spirit

My Key Suggestions:

2 Things to Remember:

  1. No one is perfect, no one lives perfectly, and very few eat perfectly every single day. If you do, be happy and proud. You did it and you're there!! 
  2. If you're not there yet, remember that each day is a new day filled with new choices and opportunities to get you closer and closer to your goals. Turn them into habits. My Total Wellness

The start of my day: 

  • Deep breath and a prayer or meditate for 2-10 minutes
  • Drink plenty of water when you wake up, before meals and throughout your day; Why?
    • It regulates body temperature 
    • Provides the means for nutrients to travel to your organs and tissues
    • Helps transport oxygen to your cells
    • Removes waste
    • Protects your joints and organs
    • Gives you energy.

Nutrition for your body: 

  • Read labels, know what you put into your body
  • Good nutrition, Go Local, Go Organic whenever possible,
  • Include a balance of complex carbs, raw vegetables and protein for balanced nutrition)
  • Portion control of each food group:
    • Read serving suggestions
    • Eat slower, it takes 15 minutes for our small intestine to reach the "your full" message

Exercise for your body:

  • Workout or include at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day (a walk, jog, game of tennis, or my favorites: Zumba, line dancing and country dancing) 
  • Benefits of Physical Activity: 

    • Promotes health and fitness
    • Builds healthy bones and muscles (1) 
    • Reduces the risk of developing obesity and risk factors for diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease (1)
    • Reduces the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and STRESS (1)
    • Can positively affect concentration, memory, and classroom behavior (2)

End of day:

  • End your day with a deep breath and prayer or meditate for 2-10 minutes
  • Sleep, rest and relax
    • This means TURN OFF your electronic devices
    • Read scripture or something inspirational
    • Close your eyes, take a couple deep breaths, think about the good things in your day, and most of all, give thanks 

Suggested Habits

  • How you think can affect how you feel, so think POSITIVE
  • Try not to eat 2 hours before bed, if needed, keep it light and drink water first
  • Remind yourself, YOU CAN do this! :)
