Exercise: The Real Fountain of Youth

Aging. It’s something that we all aspire to do well.

For most of us, we consider aging to be a passive thing; it just happens. But the good news is that there is another way. You can be actively involved in the process and positively impact the outcome.

After all, aging is a process. It’s an action. And just like other actions in our lives, if we practice them and learn new skills to improve how we do them, we can get better at doing them over time.

So, let’s talk about what aging is first. You’ve heard it said before that age is just a number. And in many ways, that’s true.

HealTHY Mind, HealTHY Body, HealTHY Spirit

With these thoughts, I have gravitated toward asking myself: what practices can I put into place to nourish each of them?  Yes, PRACTICE.  Practice is the process you create and maintain to obtain a positive result.

For Mind: I believe clearing the clutter (in mind and surroundings), being present and in the moment, remaining focused, flexible and productive, building resilience, and fostering positivity daily have huge impacts on not only your own life, but those around you.

For Body: I think of many things, such as: what can I sustain, consistently, to keep my body in its best shape?  Exercise is one form, adequate sleep is another, but I also think of the products I am using on my body and what I am supplying my body on the inside.  Being forever mindful of all of these has helped me to choose, with intention, things that have proven to be effective toward my goal of a healthy, mobile meat skeleton.  J

For Spirit: I find an attitude of gratitude, being forgiving, being open to new experiences and opportunities, being joyful, laughing and meditating are of great impact on connecting with a higher power.  The genuine energy of each of these increases your awareness and assists you in connecting on a deeper level, spiritually.

Now that I have shared a little background on my thoughts of a healthy Mind, Body and Spirit, come peruse the hand picked and hand made organic products I have chosen to benefit yours – including bath and body specialties, teas, culinary oils and seasonings.

Dark chocolate, deskercises, dance, daily tea and new experiences are just some of what is on my 2017 list, what is on yours?

Wishing you all a healthy and joyful new year ~
