Here's a 2-minute tip for releasing pent-up anger from your body before you blow a fuse! It works when you're about to burst into tears as well.
No matter how calm we think we are, we all suffer from stress at some point in our lives. Reiki trained? Yes we try and live by the five laws….Spiritual?..yes we try to live by the Spiritual law, but sometimes all that happens is we are calm on the outside but inside we are a boiling volcano of spitting hot, churning lava, completely knocking out our energy system that has a huge knock on effect on our physical and emotional body resulting in the symptoms listed in the diagram above.
So we ALL need a little bit of help.
Stress by definition is, according to the dictionary, 1. pressure or force. 2. conditions of hardship, trouble, etc. Hmmm, it’s the etc. bit that sets me thinking!
I think we all have our own interpretation of what the word stress means to us individually. As a current TV ad informs us, it’s been around since our time began and it’s how we deal with it is what counts. I can agree with that, but not perhaps the ads’ recommendation, although that might be appropriate for some.
People used to refer to the word or phrase of the state of their ‘nerves’ rather than the word ‘stress’.
It was Walter Cannon who actually developed the term stress in his work relating to the flight-or-flight response in 1932.
In research terms stress now embraces biochemical, behavioural, physiological and psychological effects.
Stress is a normal part of life. Many events that happen to you and around you, and many things that you do yourself, put stress on your body.
You can experience stress from your environment, your body and your thoughts and other people’s responses to you!

As a busy mum of two I found myself running around after the kids, juggling working and home life as well as running for fun! As a result I wasn’t looking after my nutrition. Despite a busy lifestyle I did eat reasonably well and I wasn’t over weight but I just didn’t feel healthy.

How is your skin performing this winter?
People are often confused about what their skin, and their bodies really need to look well and stay well. It's no wonder!
The beauty and health industry are now worth billions and it is in the interest of every company to say whatever it takes for you to buy their product and believe their message. You are valuable to them. You are worth money to them. Lots of money!
Expensive chemically manufactured rubbish is passed off as age defying, wrinkle reducing wonder products. If it really worked, we would all be using them!
How does being out in nature make you feel? Many people know that just being in close proximity to trees, plants and flowers can make them feel relaxed, calm and centred. This is due to their natural energy vibration being lifted.
Flower remedies themselves are healing solutions containing the energetic imprint of flowers, plants or trees which when taken can raise our own energy vibration making us feel better mentally, emotionally and subsequently physically. The remedies also open up our channels for reception of inner guidance and connection to our soul so we naturally become more intuitive and know how we can help ourselves.
We are energy beings being comprised of 99.9999% energy and are constantly vibrating. Our energy vibration can vary and we connect and resonate with others vibrating at a similar rate.
This was the title of a 1946 NHS information film advising people to use a handkerchief to stop the spread of the cold and flu virus.
Unfortunately even today “they” haven’t found a cure or preventative towards colds or flu. The ramifications that come with vaccines make them no longer an option and reaching for remedies from nature is becoming more the norm for those that don’t trust the short and long term effects of over the counter drugs.
Grannies and great grannies used to advise rubbing goose fat on the chest, not so outrageous when you think of all the natural, easily made vapour rubs, (see www.mommypotamus.com/diy-vicks-vapor-rub for example) which, incidentally is best used rubbed on the feet and covered with a pair of socks at bedtime to stop the tickly cough that keeps you awake. Said to increase sluggish blood circulation at congested areas it is also thought to act on reflexology points. Fantastic non-intrusive remedy for babies and children.
Colourful nutrition advice from renowned nutritionist and author of Rainbow Recipes, Barbara Cox.
When talking fruit and veg, the government advises that we eat ‘Five a Day’. That’s certainly a good start, but if I was the Prime Minister I’d change that to ‘Five Colours a Day’. That way we’d hopefully find ourselves eating more than five different kinds of fruit and vegetables daily, but it would mean we’d also benefit from the additional health-promoting properties of eating naturally pigmented food.
Natural food pigments, known technically as carotenoids, are one kind of an important class of disease-fighting biochemicals with a very suitable (but coincidental) name: phytochemicals! Acting as antioxidants and immune response boosters, these chemicals are believed to be very important in providing protection against cancer and heart disease.
