    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Attitude

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Author, Speaker, Nurse, Fitness Trainer and very passionate about healthy living.
    Follow me on my journey: meeting, yesterday at 11 AM; on time, doors closed, checked invite, 11:30 AM. Now what? First, I felt frustrated, waisted 30 min, two deep breaths, sat on the bench, used time wisely.
    What would you do in this situation?
    How would you react?
    How would it affect you Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically and Mentally?
    Just thinking about it, do you feel a shift in your body and your mind?
    Now what are your options:
    frett over it, get angry, frustrated, walk away, wait patiently and use the time efficiently, get some work done, take notes..
    This is how this BTR came about, as this exact episode happened to me yesterday. I was at the destination on time only to find out that the Restaurant did not open for another 30 min. 
    Used time efficiently, writing my BTR and lovely conversation with guests. I felt that big shift within me from frustration to peace, serenity.
    We can quite often change the outcome just by accepting it, taking a deep breath, and thinking positive, doing sth that soothes us and we feel good about getting it done. It's like getting twice as much accomplished than first intended. What a great feeling.

    Do you learn something new each and every day?
    My Motos: "The day I can no longer learn anything new is the day I want to go 6 feet under"; and: "Give, Be and Do your best each and every day i.o. not to have any regrets".
    How can we stimulate our brain, so we won't get Alzheimer's or Dementia early in our lives?
    Speaking from personal experience with F-I-L who lived with us until he passed away:
    Be active daily
    Be around people daily, forces you to communicate, to listen, to think, to talk, all brain stimulated activities.
    Proper nutrition
    Sufficient hydration, mostly water:
    Read or be read to, watch TV, interaction, go outside, protect your skin,
    Take courses, seminars, classes, art classes, languages, music, etc.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, What are Superfoods?

    in Health


    G. M. & W. 2 G. H. N. with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Author, Speaker, Fitness Trainer and Full-Circle Health Coach.
    Why is it so important to live an Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically and Mentally balanced life? It doesn't matter where I look I see articles, slogans, commercials, you name it, all of them referring to a balanced life style. I know it's true that when one is talking about something, one sees it being presented more often. The same with cars. Before I drove a Prius, I barely ever saw one. Now that I am driving a Plug-in Hybrid Prius, I see them all over, more than not.
    Why is that so? Are we conditioned to pay more attention to what we have or what we want? Are we the reason that trends get picked up so quickly so that they spiral out of control?
    It was yesterday that I was asked on a radio show, why super foods are so "important" or trendy these days. I just found so many articles while searching on Google varying from 11 - 100 superfoods in lists and mention. Why don't you google Superfoods?
    Are they really healthier than regular foods?
    What is the very best and healthiest diet for us to be balanced E.S.P.M.?
    I am sure that you are aware that certain foods cause a sugar crash, or a suger high for a short while than a crash! Are these foods healthy? Can we solve that problem by consuming them in moderation?
    How do we know what's good for us and what is not?

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, Nurse, Fitness Trainer and Full-Circle Health Coach.
    Sleep Apnea - Overview & Facts
    Never in my life did I think I had Sleep Apnea. However, my dentist asked me to take a Sleep Apnea test to find out why I have dry mouth? Honestly, I did not see a relation between the two, but..
    What is Sleep Apnea?
    How does Sleep Apnea fit into E.S.P.M.?
    How can it be detected and diagnosed?
    Why do so many people have this sleep disorder?
    How does it manifest itself?
    Airways blocked
    stop breathing
    anatomy of breathing pattern
    Symptoms of possible sleep apnea:
    High blood pressure
    Heart disease
    Overweight
    Stroke
    Pre-diabetes and diabetes
    Depression
    Why do people with sleep apnea have longer and stronger Jet Lag when crossing over 2 time zones?
    Jet lag is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder...
    Jet lag can be worsened by:
    - sleep loss due to travel
    - spending a long time sitting, uncomfortable
    - stress
    - caffeine and alcohol use
    - Air pressure or poor air quality
    Do you see how it has to do with mental, physical and emotional health?
    When in doubt, get tested. 
    ex.: class, small appliance, returned it today, test with a bigger aparatus, wear overnight & return tomorrow. The Dept is recording. Dr. knew things I never shared re: my sleep pattern.
    Any of the above symptoms, get tested.

    Yesterday: Radio 89.3 FM, KPCC  Mindfulness


    How does Mindfulness relate to E.S.P.M.?


    What is Mindfulness?


    Maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Jon Kabat-Zinn created a MBSR program (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, 1979).


    Why Practice Mindfulness?


    Good for our body. Boosts immune system. Good for our Minds. Reduces stress, depression, changes our brain...


    How to Cultivate Mindfulness?


    Jon Kabat-Zinn emphasizes that althought mindfulness can be cultivated through formal meditation, that's not the only way. Watch the "this Greater Good video".


    Pay close attention to your breathing, especially when you are feeling intense emotions.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Amazing Facts re: Nutrition

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, Nurse, Fitness Trainer and a Full-Circle Health Coach.
    Amazing Facts re: Nutrition
    Nutrition belongs to E.S.P.M., as it has a huge impact on our mental and physical health.
    Many years ago: no transportation, stores, gyms,


    worked with hand-made tools, physical labor, during day light, sleeping during the night. 
    They ate what they found, grew, hunted, lived long and healthy lives.
    At their time: no grains, rice, potatoes, sugar infused foods, something we eat now almost daily. They ate saturated fats. Article written by George Dvorsky 6/11/12: whole grains are extremely unhealthy, sugar is far worse than we previously thought. 
    Many years ago, no processed foods, hybride foods, milk products, etc., ate fresh vegetables, fruits, meat and nuts. 
    Change in eating habits:
    Paleo Diet, advocates on eating unprocessed foods like lean meat, seafood, roots, tubers, fruits, and vegetables. Our body is used to those foods, digests them better and gets more nutrition per calorie than the typical Neolithic and processed foods.
    Paleo advocates believe that gluten is a nasty weapon in our body. All humans react poorly to gluten. Robb Wolf compares this effect to having poison oak lining our intestinal walls. 
    I am eating mostly vegetables, fruits, and cashews. I am staying away from sweets, milk- and high gluten products.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Physical Balance

    in Health

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


    Why is Physical Balance so important?


    ex.: Jr.'s story from when we took him in (November 11, 2009, prior 2 years convalescent home after amputation of left leg) to when he passed away (September 21, 2015 at 92 years and exactly 8 months) 6 years of learning, challenges, solutions, (vegetable, reduced meds with Dr.'s knowledge, interacted with him, healthier nutrition, better hydration, started swimming after 5 months living with us, increased swimming to 1 mile a day, sometimes 2 miles!)


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rLpp_0tjtQ


    ex.: my story November 5, 2015


    What does Physical Balance prevent? What are the benefits? How can we achieve them? 


    No marathon needed! Consistent, daily exercise makes a big difference, not just physically, also emotionally, spiritually and what we'll see next week, mentally. Even passive exercising is better than no exercising.

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


    Breathing/Breath


    Are you aware that there are different ways of breathing?


    - Diaphragm (belly in & out, deep breathing)


    - Chest (shoulders move up and down)


    - Mouth/throat (shallow and fast breathing)


    At birth: babies breath with their Diaphragm. 


    Teens: boys - Diaphragm; girls-chest


    Adults: all 3 depending on what they do.


    Why has the breathing changed between birth to death? (Full-Circle)


    Benefits of breathing with Diaphragm:


    calm, enough breath, clearer head, more endurance, speach and song flow better.


    ex.: white coat syndrom


    ex.: sports


    ex.: singing or talking


    It's all full circle, just like our life, we are born - death. It's the dash that matters.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Mental Balance

    in Health

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


    Mental Balance: pertaining to the mind; pertaining to the totality of an individual's intellectual and emotional or physical being...


    This is wk 4 of the full circle: E. S. P. and M health and balance.


    Everthing we do belongs to one of the 4 quarters of the pie. The challenge we have is to make sure that the pie is evenly divided into four, so all slices are the same to be balanced. This means that we need to pay attention to where we have some short comings and balance those to even out. Some areas are easier to balance than others, which is amazing, as it allows us to learn to balance ourselves to the fullest. Sometimes we can use the same method to balance more than one slice of the pie.


    ex. music is great for soothing, math, language/communication, energy, healing


    exercise: benefits are strong, healthy, happy, balanced


    nutrition: improves mental health


    hydration: same


    As you can see, the four slices always belong together and form a complete circle.


    A balanced mind helps you make better decisions, faster and smarter decisions...


    Medication is not always the solution. Sometimes it's better without!
