Today, I try to practice a headstand almost every day, not only because it is a great mental awakening, but also because it is a great physical supplement to any other exercise where you exert yourself aerobically. For example if you are a walker, hiker or runner, headstand is a great way to reverse the blood flow in your legs, such that muscle soreness is minimized. If standing on your head sounds scary or intimidating, I want to share with you an apparatus that I recently discovered from Gaiam, that completely eliminates any discomfort you might associate with this pose.
AIt is call the Yogacise Body Lift and it is worth its weight in gold, literally. (Please note that this is NOT an advertisement and no one is paying us to promote this item. I wish they were!) Caveat: I am not normally an advocate of excessive equipment when it comes to exercise, but I make an exception to the rule for this one. Check out the picture of me here from yesterday, using the lift to get into the pose. It is easy, refreshing and life altering. To read more about how headstand can facilitate launching success, please read my tip from last year.
(NOTE: This is not a commercial, just a preference)
Why? Because all you have to do is try a bag with these wheels once and you’ll never go back to the old. The wheels are so versatile that they allow you to push the bag in front rather than behind you and to switch direction on the fly for ease of getting in and out of inadequate spaces. My brand of choice is the Brookstone Dash Carry-on, which offers a sleek design and a hardside, lightweight structure in several sizes, making them equally perfect for quick getaways or lengthy trips.
For a life-changing travel experience, this is one investment that is worth its weight in gold.
Touted as a panacea for everything from Diabetes to Obesity, in a nutshell, Alkaline water restores the pH balance in the body, neutralizing acidity caused by stress, diet, air pollution, and, believe it or not, many bottled waters.
The impact? An antioxidant effect, that creates energy, burns fat and protects the body. What more could a launching lady ask for? Can you say “great taste”? In fact the most compelling reason to imbibe Alkaline water is for its taste. The silky, smooth, feel makes it easy to consume in large quantities, stay sufficiently hydrated and balance your pH levels. Where can you get some?
My favorite is Real Water. You can order it and have it delivered. This water has changed my life and cures headaches and dehydration like no other.
Prefer a super low-cost alternative? Prepare and drink lemon water. Believe it or not, lemons are alkaline and go a long way in restoring the acidity of non-alkaline waters and / or tap water.
By “the stars” I mean, your astrological forecast. Although I’ve experimented with a few psychics and typically have the immediate impulse to turn straight to the astrology sections of most lifestyle magazines and websites before reading anything else, my absolute favorite astrological readings on the planet (no pun intended) are those provided monthly by Susan Miller on her website: www.astrologyzone.com. You couldn’t find a more well thought out, in-depth analysis of “the stars”, as it relates to your life, if you tried. Each forecast comes chock full of best dates for romance, career and your finances, as well as a summary of salient points.
Susan’s forecasts touch on and address every aspect of your life in a realistic, yet positive way.
Check out yours and let me know if you agree!
But having now experienced multiple sessions of this therapy over time, I am astounded by the results that have both physical and mental lasting effects. If you are unfamiliar with BodyTalk, you can learn more and find a practitioner near you by visiting the national website: www.bodytalksystem.com. BodyTalk is premised on the theory that exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life compromises the body’s natural communication systems, leading to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. BodyTalk stimulates the body's innate ability to balance and heal itself, preventing disease and expediting the healing process.
Not sure about you, but I’m a big endorser of any treatment that can raise my energy, keep me healthy and catapult me to a higher emotional plane.
