3 Simple Ways to re-energize yourself and your family in time to enjoy the Holidays! By Viveca Stone-Berry
We’re smack in the middle of a very tricky time of our year. We’ve just spent weeks amping up on Halloween candy. (When did those first bags – for the kids – enter your home?) Next, we will be pumping our adrenals as we shop till we drop, eat more sweets and are driven wild by holiday “great expectations” …
Now is your moment to break away from the pack & get your groove back! Here’s how …
Sleep More – Sleep Earlier & Sleep In whenever you can.
We adults need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep. This does not count the time falling asleep or waking up from sleep. And, what about our kids?
2 Months – 1 year 14-15 hours
1-3 years 12-14 hours
3-6 years 11-13 hours
6-12 years 10-11 hours
12-18 years 8 ½ – 9 ½ hours
Before the turn of this century the average consumption of sugar was only 5 lbs. per person per year!
Now he average American consumes an astounding 2-3 pounds of sugar each week.
Woman, give your body a rest! Cut it back & cut it out. You will sleep better, weigh less and feel happier, calmer and more comfortable in your skin. Notice and note for yourself and encourage your family to follow your lead.
Amp down the sugar but amp up the greens. Kale, spinach, green beans, green pepper, Brussels sprouts, parsley … these are full of antioxidants & vitamins & minerals & fiber and all the things you need to rejuvenate your cells and spirit. Rule of thumb – the brighter the color of the vegetable, whether it is green or red or yellow or purple – the more energizing it is for you.
