WHY POLYPHENOLS?

Mulberries, Aronia cherries, and Blackberries contain powerful micronutrients called polyphenols. Polyphenols, in fact, are what give berries and other plants their dark color. In the Vital Reds blend from Dr Gundry, that I mentioned and linked to above, there are plenty of these super-fruits that contains polyphenols,. They natural energy boosters, have antioxidant properties, and play a huge role in keeping your body healthy

STORYTELLING

Today I read something really inspiring about how being "stuck" in bad patterns and habits is quite common, but how easily we can get "unstuck" if we only shift our perspective a little bit. The article from the enlightened, colorado based magazine "listen, share and be kind, was saying that we are not solid beings with problems, rather consciousness projecting epic stories

Everything that appears outside of you actually originates from our consciousness
— Kathy Castrigno
Our perspective on life can change with a single move

Our perspective on life can change with a single move

We tend to think that we have to keep feeling a certain way or do something the same way as always, just because that's "our identity. How many times have you said, well, that's just who I am or no, that's not me?? We tend to cling to our story and wait around for something outside our self or the idea of the future, to make changes.

I really connected with the author of the article saying that everything that appears outside of us actually originates from inside us, our consciousness. Whatever we transmit out is reflected back to us as through a mirror. We are the author and main character in our own stories and lives. The article I read said that quantum physics has shown that we send out frequencies that carry information through our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.

If this is so, we also have the immense power to build our dream life. So, let's say that we can project a different frequency right now... does that not mean that we don't have to wait for something outside our self to shift our story?? If you feel stuck or unhappy with something, find a new perspective. Take the first step and begin telling a new story now. Don't wait for approval from the outside world, don't wait for someone to tell you it's okay... Don´t worry about what's wrong or right or how to fix your old story. Leave the old story behind and start telling a new version that paints you as an empowered being, filled with love, passion, gratitude and confidence! Tell this new story over and over and don't be scared to pour your heart & soul into it. Its a law of physics that at some future point, the universe will reflect back to you what you put out there.

Break bad habits with movement

Finding a good balance in your work day can be a big challenge. When I get stuck in front of the computer for too long, staring at the screen with bad posture, I find that I get tunnel vision and lose touch with myself

Sitting in front of the computer for to long, usually involves lots of "hunching" and bad posture.  You can notice that your posture will be more and more "closed up" the more you sit in the "computer position". Standing once in a while can do wonders, preferably using a standing desk. 

To break up my day from sitting still too long and to get a different perspective, I like to go for a run or do some kind of physical activity, preferably outside, but anything goes in a hectic work day. Being a professional athlete competing for over 18 years, has thought me that repetition over time, helps you attract those results. The results can be positive or negative for the body and the mind, all depending on what it is that you are repeating. Therefor, it is smart to make sure that you adapt and repeat those healthy habits and lifestyle into your "every day".

In order to reopen my posture and connect with my heart chakra I do opposite movements of what I would do in front of the computer. I practice some form of yoga everyday. Yoga is a great activity to break up a work day when you spend a lot of time sitting still. It´s one of my favorite forms of movement to keep in touch with my body, mind and spirit.

The past years I have gotten pretty found of climbing and to improve my techniqueI like to integrate hand and finger exercises into my day to day life. Taking 10 minutes to stand up and give some attention to my hands can both help my climbing and save me from adapting negative patterns that again can lead to dis-ease further down the line.  

Climbing is an easy activity that everyone can do and it does not require a lot of equipment, especially if you are bouldering. If I dont have access to an easy outdoor climbing spot, I go to a climbing gym near me and do a 45 min session. It is amazing how much more clarity, focus and creativity I have when I come back to my work space. 

SALAD WITH SWEET POTATOE STRIPS

SALAD WITH SWEET POTATOE STRIPS

Eating healthy trough out the day really helps me stay focused and provides me with the energy I need to endure through the day. Getting up from chair to make meals, helps me break up my work day. It also gives me credits towards my daily standing goal witch is 12 hours each day. It mights sound silly to have a standing goal, but it´s touch on the hip flexors to sit for long periods of time. It also is contributing towards my goal of being the best version of myself. I like to make smoothie bowls, salads with goodies from the garden, yummy vegetable pasta & eggs with avocado & sourdough bread from a local bakery (the real sourdough)

I have started using a watch to help remind me to get up and break away from creating bad habits and patterns. It also tells me to take a minute to breathe. As I am typing this, my clock just told me to get up and move. I guess technology can be used as a crutch or as a tool, all depending on your awareness around it :)
