    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Spiritual Balance

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, Full-Circle Health Coach and passionate about healthy and balanced living.


    Last week: Emotional Balance, today 2/4 Spiritual Balance; next week 2/11 Physical Balance; 2/18 Mental Balance.


    My favorite word is: Moderation in what ever we do. What I mean with Spritual Balance is to have something to look up to, for example Nature, Sounds, Yoga, God, Buddah, something where you can pull strength from.


    Why is this so important? As a baby we had our parent(s) nurture us. As children, we made friends and enjoyed spending time with them, sharing, playing. As teens it started getting a bit more competitive, and as adults, we get lost at times, because the support we had has shifted in us, as we want to be self-sufficient, knowing the answers, being respected,


    That's why we need a supreme being or something that grounds us, so we are balanced. Remember the muscle testing we did last week? Use it!


    From my experience, my spritual life means being, doing, giving the best I can each and every day and get the strength and wisdom from above to know what it is. Ask yourself, what is it for you? Do you get guidance from somewhere you feel you want to tune in, listen, then head the thought, feeling, guidance you get? Do you feel a shift in your body, your mind, your soul? That's what a Spiritual Balance is for me. Then I test it and when it's solid, I follow the action to that thought.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Emotional Balance

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Author, Speaker, Full-Circle Health Coach and passionate about healthy and balanced living.


    Emotional Balance


    Why is Emotional Balance in our life so important?


    I am not a Psychiatrist or a Psychologist, though have studied Psychology to become a nurse and then a teacher. 


    Why do these two professionals say we need Emotional Balance?


    to understand people better, learn easier


    to know how to ask questions that open up their minds and emotions i/o to help them


    How do we know that we are Emotionally balanced?


    When we are, how do we feel? Stressed? Even keeled? Easy going? Happy?


    When we are not? Tense? Irritable? Angry? Frustrated?


    What are the side affects of either?


    How can we avoid the negative side affects?


    How can we make sure we are balanced? Titer Toter, muscle testing


    Meditation, Music, reading, listening to positive talk, walk, exercise, rest, healthy nutrition, ample hydration


    Interaction with others


    Recap: being emotionally balanced with all of the above mentioned points, helps us avoid going into Depression, having suicidal thoughts, and worse. It's all about Balance and today it's the Emotional Balance.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson: Why New Year's Resolutions?

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am a Full-Circle Health Coach, Author, Speaker, Teacher and passionate about healthy living.


    Today's topic: January 2016, 3 weeks gone already!


    Apology for tech diff 1/7 & 1/14


    January almost gone


    New Year's Resolutions


    Webster's Dictionary: "The state of being resolute; a fixed purpose of determination; the state of acting with fixed purpose; firmness; the act of resolving or separating into component parts; the answer or solution to a problem..."


    Common New Year's Resolutions:


    Are you On/Off Target?


    Feelings about decisions?


    Stress Relieve: deep breathing....resting more and deeply


    Weight Control: Food (eating less, healthier, more plant based foods; reduce or avoid sugars, read labels, no more than 10 - 11% of your caloric intake in Protein (plant or animal)


    Do not loose weight, release it! Think, what happens when you loose something? Mind goes into search to find the item again!


    Exercise, firm, tone, positive action words! Affirmations. Loving your body. Loving your looks. Knowing that beauty shines from within, then radiates to the outside!


    Life Style Change: do it for 21 - 28 days, as this is the time it takes to form a new habit.


    Be Present


    Leave the Past behind


    Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, today is a Gift from God, that's why it's called the Present!


    Moderation
