As we all begin to frame 2023 and set our intentions, I think it needs to go deeper than a New Year’s Resolution.
I believe its best to frame it as a “New Year’s Intention” with a beginning an no END, consider it a permanent lifestyle change. It begins with a positive mindset, a large piece of accountability and a strong commitment to self-care. Perhaps it is having a step-by-step plan or for some it’s jumping ALL in. Begin by looking at the 4 Pillars of Women’s Health and analyzing where you are at this moment. Remembering that all 4 pillars need to be aligned for true homeostasis and optimized health. Just remember as you proceed into 2023 to structure your day like a FULL-TIME job for FULL TIME results. No Excuses! Just Choices!
Aggressive exercise during Menopause won’t work! In fact, it actually works against women as it can spike Cortisol which in turn spikes blood sugar and slows our metabolism, retaining that “horrific muffin top! However, “Movement is Medicine” and helps to stimulate our circulation & provide clarity.
2023 Goal: Pick 15 to 20 minutes of “movement”: walking, stretching, yoga, running lightly, free weights or loop bands. Pick your go-to for minimum of 3 to 5 times per week.
Analyzing the health of our environment is a crucial centre piece to our health. Learn to kindly set boundaries to those around you. The message is very clear! Are you monitoring the stress of your personal environment and listening to your inner voice?
2023 Goal: 5 to 10 minutes of “meditation” minimum morning and night like a dose of Melatonin! Make it simple! Find a guided meditation that speaks to you!
Perhaps one of the most challenging pillars of women’s health & for many a daily struggle is our nutritional lifestyle. Clarity & commitment may come from understanding the science behind proper nutrition…..balancing blood sugar! 2023 should be a time for substituting OLD habits that are no longer serving you with NEW habits to optimize your health.
2023 Goal: Step 1: Drink 3 litres of water daily. Step 2: Eliminate BAD carbs. Step 3: Fast from 7 p. to 10 a.m. Pick the easiest change first or jump into ALL 3 knowing each day will get easier.
An often-misunderstood pillar simply due to lack of information for many women. However, hormone balance is the under current that drives our health and re-creates the body we crave. A therapeutic regimen of natural supplements is always our best choice drive by the template of the Saliva Hormone Test….a personalized road map.
2023 Goal: It’s a Easy as 1,2,3. Step #1 read “ Restore Your Life”. Step #2 Complete the “Saliva Hormone Test”. Step #3 Purchase the “Avita Sampler Pack”.
2023 IS THE YEAR TO INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH! NO EXCUSES!
