Enjoy the Hoildays with Health

Their are so many ways to enjoy the holidays with health in mind. No, I'm not saying you can't enjoy the holiday food and drink, but in moderation, consideration and some healthy preparation, and you will glide through with ease.

For me, the holidays are, being with family, the food, the decorations, visiting with friends and family. It can take a toll on you if your not ready. I do a lot of baking during the holidays, and I spend a lot of time with family, so I find ways to make healthy choices over the holidays.

Some of the best ways that I find to enjoy the holiday's with health:
  • Enjoy the food, yes I will enjoy the food. You have so many parties or gatherings, so for our house, we work to eat a balanced healthy meal every night. Along with eating healthy during the holidays, we do a lot of herbal tea, nettle being my top, then root tea(spicy) or a chaga tea, to help keep the body clean. Doing this between parties helps to enjoy the food that we eat and for it to be an indulgence and easier to get back into a healthy routine after the holiday.
  • Cheers: Many of use will indulge in a drink or two over the holidays, enjoy, but within reason. Always eat, and get plenty of sleep, this will help a long with checking in.
  • Sleep: Make sure you are getting sleep, and plenty of it. With the change of weather, the days getting shorter, and with the schedules over the holidays, sleep is important for overall health.
  • Move: Exercise is so important, keeps the body clean, energy moving, better sleep pattern, overall better health.
  • Herbs: Herbs, essential oils, teas, oils, or tinctures, are all great ways to help with health and balance over the holidays, ok, just all year great! I have an herbal blend with turmeric, nettle, horsetail, and a few others to strengthen and help with absorption, keeping me stronger and healthier. I use teas to stay hydrated, and minerals high, oils for winter skin or tired muscles after some days.
It's all bout  balance, finding ways to stay healthy and enjoy this time of the year with friends and family.

Trust in Self

This has been a practice for me this past year. Learning to trust in self is key to allowing my personal and business to continue to move forward and grow.

As we move out of 2018 and are into 2019, we where welcomed with an incredible lunar eclipse of the blood wolf moon. This is energetically a time to stop and reboot, to speak to your true self.

In this past year, I moved my business from one location to another location while opening a second location and launching my herbal business into the public online world. While it is all very exciting and quite the learning (and yes mistakes where made, but those are to learn from also), growing and self expansion.

During this growth, I had to learn to trust. Trusting my self, could I do this, how will my clients respond, can I grow enough business and do I have a strong enough support team to make this happen.

Well here I am, three  and a half months in, and taking stock in self, that 'Yes" I can do this. Now, I have not said th…

What is "Metta Wellness"

Metta means "loving Kindness", Metta Wellness in your wellness in loving kindness. Bringing together the mind, body and spirit for a full circle of healing.

For me, I see that we all want, or strive to live in peace, harmony and balance with ourselves and the world around us. At Metta Wellness I feel it starts in the mind. The mind is a powerful element that can determine our peace and harmony. How we look at ourselves, our internal conversation, and the way we feel the world sees or views us. If we look at ourselves in pure loving kindness, we are going to walk out into the world full of love, inner strength and kindness.

With a healthy, positive and balanced mind, the body works in harmony. When we fall out of harmony in the mind the body will feel it through stress, inflammation, skin issues, anxiety over time this can result in an auto immune disorder. When the mind is struggling, and the body shares the disruption, the spirit disconnects.

When the mind, body and spirit…
