Do everything you can to bring pleasure into your life right now!!!❤️
Words of advice from a trusted mentor. As many of you know, I have been weaning off my bio-identical hormones for the past couple of months. I have been using a new product, A-ma-ta by Dr. Christiane Northrup to help me with the transition.
I have been doing really well while on vacation, less stress more time to relax etc. I have been totally off the hormones for 2 weeks and I thought I was done. The past week, I haven’t slept well and I am started to forget things etc… I reached out to my friend yesterday who understands this whole hormonal process and her words. “Do everything you can to bring pleasure into your life right now!!!❤️”
Fabulous advice which makes me nervous. I am really good at pushing through. What can I do to bring pleasure? I took an epsom salt bath last night, I went to OutdoorFit this morning and laughed with my friends while lunging and curling. I have decided to slow down and enjoy the simple things in my life. It doesn’t need to be all done today. What do you like to do for fun and pleasure? I would love to know. I need some ideas:)
Optimal Health= Low-glycemic diet+exercise+high quality supplements+pleasure!
PS. I am taking Fit & Fabulous…Aging Optional on the road! Fifty and Fat to Fit and Fabulous! I will be posting times and places soon.
Great blog! I was recently told to approach those dreaded day-to-day tasks with more of my feminine energy. When I shop for food and cook now that my children are out of the house, I approach it like a search and destroy mission. Yes! I consider that male energy. The advice was to approach meal time, as an example, from the creative and nurturing side of me. Put on some music when I’m cooking or look up some new recipes. Be almost meditative when chopping, etc. Perhaps bringing in a little feminine energy will have the side effect of pleasure–and less “pushing through.” xoxo
Thank you Judie! Your comment gave me goose bumps! We are on the right path!
Many years ago, I played Mrs. Webb in Our Town. The message of this Thornton Wilder gem is that we must do everything possible to live in the moment and relish what “is.” The simple moments in an ordinary life are the most breathtaking. I have tried, ever since, to savor the now. I’m not always successful, but it is a wonderful stress reliever to release worry and just focus on the minute I am living. That has carried me through a lot of difficult times.
Thanks for commenting Kathie! It is all about the journey and enjoying the ride!!!
