Take Time for Self-Care

During the month of July, my “Moving Forward by Faith” Interview and Video Series focused on Self-Care, Health & Wellness. We had the opportunity to speak with Ms. Quay Holland, Integrative Nutrition and Autoimmune Health Coach and Owner of Q ur Body Lifestyle LLC. She answered the question, What is Wellth? and much, much more. Ms. Holland believes that while on our life’s journey, we discover that we lack purpose, alignment and true WELLth™ in many areas of our personal, professional, financial lives. This unstable lifestyle can negatively impact our bodies, minds and souls in profound ways, like unhealthy relationships with food, environments or individuals and lack of self-care. It’s time for a change!

We also shared some Words of Wisdom from Ms. Mocha Lee, Certified Personal Trainer and Owner of Fitness Fanatics. A very, very busy mom herself, wife and an entrepreneur, she understands that we don’t have hours to spend at the gym… and “what about our hair!” Mocha Lee suggested that we start our day with our devotionals, prayer and meditation. Then, if we would spend ONLY ten minutes in the morning with low impact cardio exercise, we would be amazed at how much more energy we would have throughout the day.

MOCHA’S METHOD – The Four “M’s”

1.   Motivation
2.   Morning Movement
3.   Manage Meals
4.   Making Meaningful Measurements (Set Smart, Attainable Goals)

Lastly, we are working on one more video for this month, entitled “Coping during COVID” (formerly entitled “Coping with our Emotions during Isolation”), A Conversation with Dr. Sadie John, Christian Clinical Psychologist.

So Stay Tuned…

However, in the meantime, I believe that someone out there needs to hear this today!

Please Share…. and Have a Blessed Week!

De-Cluttering the Mind: Women & Sleep

Are you getting enough sleep or are you waking up tired??  According to Harvard Medical School, “For optimum health and function, the average adult should get seven to nine hours of sleep every night. But more than 60% of women regularly fall short of that goal. Most women with a sleep debt run it up by burning the candle at both ends — consistently failing to get to bed on time or stay there long enough”.
