Women’s Health: Body, Mind & Spirit

Women’s Health Tips for Your Body, Mind and Soul

Two new concept applications to learn more about are ‘tensegrity’ and ‘FODMAPS ‘.

I’ve been researching both of these concepts first as part of my yoga teacher training (tensegrity) and then during an invigorating coffee meeting (chai tea for me) with a long time friend and fellow critical thinker Catherine Morley, I learned more about FODMAPS (components in food that mimic a gluten sensitivity).

If any of the above piques your interest, check it out for yourself.

Buckminster Fuller originally talked about ‘tensegrity’ as applying to the connective tissue of the human body.

Dr Shepard is the main researcher into FODMAPS , and if you have unexplained fatigue, aches, bloating and tummy trouble, you may wish to learn more.

Have a great day.

Monday Mornings: Work Life Balance

Monday Morning Words of Wisdom

I entered my office this morning with a sigh of relief!

Even though our daughters are adults who live with us, not young children, life at home is busy. I don’t have any control over which dishes are casually left on the coffee table, how much milk is in the fridge in the morning or if there is enough coffee.  It is somewhat surprising that I still need to be concerned about life work balance!

My office is quiet, it’s serene, the jumble on my desk is my own doing and I’m happy it’s Monday morning!

Have a great day.

Holistic Health Tip & Inspiring Quote of the Day!

Topaz Lotus Living: Holistic Health Tip of the Day!

Holistic Health Quote:

‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’

~ World Health Organization, 1948

Healthy Life Tip:

Start a ‘body centered’ practice, not for just the purpose of exercise but in addition, for the purpose of ‘getting back into your body’ or ‘inhabiting your body more fully’.

You may wish to start and continue on a regular basis a practice like yoga, chi gong or tai chi.  Or, you may choose to start your day with a body scan or check in with your body through out the day to ‘hear your body’s messages’.

Finish your practice with mindfulness meditation.

 

Enjoy your day my friends.

Topaz Lotus Living: Happy Family Day BC!

I don’t usually comment on local politics, however, I think if there was an election tomorrow, Christy Clark and the BC Liberals would win 🙂

 

It was thanks to Christy Clark, that my family and I are relaxing on a lazy, cozy, rainy Monday morning, enjoying the first ever BC Family Day Holiday and I would like to wish you and yours a Happy Family Day too!

 

Families are our foundation!

 

peace,

The Simplicity That Comes From a Beautiful Summer Day and One Activity!

Mindfulness, Simplicity and Intention!

 

You know, I just spend about 20 minutes watering my flowers, however, I did it very mindfully and with intention!

Before doing the watering, I was kind of in a brain fog, after a busy, hot day.

After, I feel refreshed, clear and rejuvenated.

 

It’s about simplicity and mindfulness today.

 

In peace,

Women ~ Life ~ Health: Yoga & Music Festival in Whistler – Synchronicity!

I’ve mentioned before how my family is my foundation and that I just totally adore my three hippie like daughters.

I guess a life coach should be prepared for this and it was with only a glimmer of a catch of breath that I accepted my daughter’s invitation to share a few days in Whistler with her. She really enjoys her self care, I say with a smile.

There were only 2 days that worked for both of us and after scouting the web for deals we were very excited to book into the Westin for 2 nights.

It was after the fact that I found out that Whistler is hosting “Wanderlust: a Yoga and Music Festival”!

I’ve been a yoga practitioner for over 15 years and I recently took a prental yoga teacher training course through Semperviva Yoga Vancouver.  My plan is to offer prenatal yoga classes as and add on to my life coaching for women in Vancouver.

You’ve gotta’ love the synchronicity as without my conscious intention, we will be up at Whistler during a weekend that combines three of my loves; my family, music and yoga! Thank you Universe.

 

In peace and mindfulness,
