REPLACING UNHEALTHY PRACTICES WITH HEALTHY PRACTICES – WENDY BLANCHARD, M.S., CHHC

REPLACING UNHEALTHY PRACTICES WITH HEALTHY PRACTICES             

  • Worry…Instead, Have Faith
  • Negative thoughts…Instead, practice positive affirmations…say them, write them, believe them.
  • Reacting…Instead, breathe, observe your feelings/emotions, take a time out, respond respectfully.
  • Eating Sugar…Instead, eat low sugar fruits and if sweeter is needed, use a small amount of raw honey.
  • Eating “fast foods”, processed foods, gluten, cow’s milk products, GMOs, unhealthy carbs…Instead, choose organic, when possible, choose plant based and whole foods such as low sugar fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, fish, goat milk or other healthier milk choices, plant based supplements, drink half your weight in ounces of water, daily, and consult a Holistic Health Counselor for support and guidance in using natural and organic solutions in prevention, awareness and treatment of dis-ease, and to find sustainable, healthy solutions to WELLNESS!
  • Isolating…Instead, Meditate, Pray, Stay Connected and ask for loving support.
  • Consuming caffeine…Instead, drink decaffeinated green tea, warm water with basil, mint, lemon.
  • Engaging in relationships that create ongoing stress/anxiety…Instead, engage with others who are uplifting, positive, and who offer, and accept love unconditionally.
  • Working constantly to avoid unpleasant realizations…Instead, enjoy recreation and create love and joy with loved ones. Practice SELF CARE DAILY.
  • Rushing to the next “thing.” Instead, stay in the present, and immerse yourself in every blessed and exciting moment.
  • Eating in a hurry…Instead, practice mindful eating, gratitude for food and for the time to sit in peace, to savor every bite, and to chew and digest food slowly and purposefully.
  • Sitting for too long without mindful movement…Instead, stand up every 30 minutes, stretch, take a short walk, practice yoga, and tune in to your body’s physical needs to align with your mind and spirit.

When we practice mindfulness body, mind, and spirit, we bring ourselves into deliberate balance where we thrive in WELLNESS, and WELLNESS IS WHERE WE STAND IN OUR POWER!

Love and blessings,

Wendy
