    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.

    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!

    Today’s Topic: Reflections on last Thanksgiving Day.  


    Be Thankful poem, Author Unknown (read)


    THANKSGIVING


    There is nothing you can dream that you can’t achieve


    Have the courage to go after your dreams and believe


    Always remember you are beautiful and unique


    Never give up when going after what you seek


    Keep reminders around to remind you of your dreams


    Savor the present for it goes quicker than it seems


    Give more to others than you receive


    Inspire others with all that you achieve


    Value yourself. You are perfect for you


    Individuality is important so let it shine through


    Notice the small miracles all around you


    Greatness starts from within and is in all that you do


     


    Thanksgiving daily, not yearly. Personal reflections. Family Tradition.

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Bread Recipe

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Radio Show Host, Author and a full-circle Health Coach.


    Gift:


    Today’s topic: Recipes


    original bread recipe:


    4 cups flour


    2 eggs 


    2 tsp salt


    2 tsp Fleishman’s dry yeast


    2 Tbl sugar


    12 oz lukewarm liquid


    Second version:


    3 cups flour


    ½ cup oats


    ½ cup rye flour


    Third version: same as 2


    6 scoops flax seed meal


    13 Tbl water = 2/3 cup  


    Fourth version


    3 cups bread flour


    ½ cup oats


    1/2 cup coconut flour


    ½ cup ground up avocado seeds 


    Fifth version: divide into 4, roll out each piece, then sprinkle some cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and a cut up fruit on flat piece, roll up, put back into pan but without the hook. Do this with all 4 pieces. Push it all down a bit, close lid, then set on 80 min bake.


    Due to high blood pressure I have been leaving the salt out. We don’t need a preservative, as we cut the bread into slices when it’s cold and freeze it so it stays fresh. Put it in the toaster when ready to eat and it tastes like fresh out of the oven again!


    Let me know how your bread turned out!

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Pang!

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder of Miclknight, where Health and Wellness are one. I am an Educator, Speaker, Radio Show Host, Fitness Trainer and a full circle health coach.


    Gift:


    Today’s topic: Pang


    What does it have to do with Get Healthy Now?


    Why this sound? How does it make you feel?


    Something or someone comes to an abrupt stop.


    Then what?


    story:


    X-Rays, shoulder dislocated, stiff due to 15 hrs delay


    ER Dr tried 3 x, put me out, shoulder in.


    Why am I telling this story?  Ways to get redirected after a pang. My reflections: glad it was not worse, glad I could get up, happy shoulder was put back in place, life goes on. After every fall or pang, get up and do, be and give your best again. No need to get depressed, no need to feel sorry for yourself, look at your life being fully balanced and bounce back. I chose my balance over imbalance just because I was in pain.


    In every situation we get to chose the outcome as long as we live.


    Your choice?


    Start laughing as quickly as possible as it releases the good, healing endorphins. It also helps you balance quicker and the pain subsides faster.


    OK, what comes after Pang? Get up!


    Don’t let a fall hinder you from following your dream. Sometimes we need to fall forward to get stronger and better at what we are doing,


    Pang! / Get up!

    Gift:


    Today’s Topic: Food & Recipes/Myths & Facts


    Do you listen to the news with all the controversial topics about healthy foods, 


    Ripley’s Believe it or Not game: listen, hear, think, look for scientific answers, substantiated answers?


    Dairy products: Yes / No


    Grains: Yes / No


    Meat: Yes / No


    Fruits and veggies: Yes / No


    Eggs: Yes / No


    Putting certain produce in the refrigerator: Yes / No


    With each question ask yourself Why / Why not?


    Are these Myths & Facts general ideas?


    Should they apply to everyone or according to individual needs?


    Are health, age/youth, activity level, mobility, etc. considered?


    Gift: http://www.teenink.com/poetry/all/article/265958/Nutritious-Food-Thats-What-I-Eat/


    Pers. Experience:


    Eggs: Yolk bad for cholesterol, too much fat…..


    Now science says that eggs are healthy for us and I no longer throw the yolk out. It actually contains a healthy fat, nutrients, …


    Conclusion:


    Always verify first before blindly believing. Hearing is one thing, believing another.


    When in doubt, ask your doctor, dietician, coach, counselor…. Or better yet, do your own research to verify.
