How to Protect Yourself from Germs

How to Protect Yourself from GermsHello, let’s talk about things that can be done to help us navigate through these infectious times. By now everyone has heard about using hand sanitizer and washing your hands regularly. Did you know that Young Living has both of these products and that the ones from Young Living not only kills germs but also can help boost your immune system? A win-win if you ask me!

These are both a part of the Thieves line of products for Young Living. They also have an All-Purpose Cleaner, a Thieves Spray, a Fruit & Vegetable Spray, Throat Lozenges, and Thieves Mints that I have been using frequently throughout all of this infectious time.

How do I use these you ask, well I use the all-purpose cleaner to clean all surfaces in my home. I also use the all-purpose cleaner to make up a spray to use as an air freshener to clean the air in my house and to clean my gloves after coming back inside. The thieves spray I use for such things as cleaning my hands after opening the mail every.  I also use the spray to clean off my groceries when I get home before putting them away. That may be a bit of an overkill but it doesn’t take long and I would rather be safe than sorry. I use the Fruit & Vegetable spray to clean my fruits and vegetables.

Then there are the Thieves Throat Lozenges and Mints. These I put in my mouth when I leave the house to help boost my immune system when I am out of the house. If it is a short time the mints work great. If it is going to be a bit longer or I know I will be close to others I use the lozenges as they last longer.

If you are interested in learning more about any of the information in these blogs please feel free to contact me through The Hammock LLC.

Well, that is it for now. We will chat again later. Stay safe during these infectious times.


Restoring Balance Training

Restoring Balance TrainingI had the great opportunity to participate in the continued education training on Restoring Balance: Training the Parasympathetic nervous system in Monroe MI. It is Evidence-based teaching on why yoga is healing, especially in their realm of trauma, which has the potential to throw the autonomic nervous system out of balance. Great techniques for grounding and centering the body to reduce stress, energize and organize, improve clarity, allows relaxing the body to truly rest and shift into the healing state of the parasympathetic nervous system.

Restorative Therapeutics is about opening up healing pathways and opportunities for growth, physically, spiritually, and mentally using yogic tools. Props are important tools to be able to position the body for an optimal shift toward the parasympathetic system (which is rest, digest, conserves energy as it slows the heart rate, increases intestinal and gland activity, and relaxes sphincter muscles in the gastrointestinal tract.)
