What if there was one simple action you could take that had the ability to shift your feeling state
almost instantly? What if you could have an anxiety-lessening tool that is at your disposal any moment of the day, no matter what you were doing? What if you could feel better, right this minute?

Isn't it lucky for you and I, our bodies come equipped with this powerful tool. Breathing is the only thing your body does that is both unconscious (you don't have to tell yourself to breathe) and conscious (you can change your breathing rate and rhythm). Because it is a window into your nervous system, it has the ability to change your anxiety level, send you helpful (or harmful) hormones and help you access inner wisdom.

 "The solution to stress lies within us. Nature has given us a defense mechanism with which to combat the physical effects of stress: parasympathetic nervous system activity catalyzed by diaphragmatic breathing. While breathing alone may not resolve the issue stressing us, it can empower us to healthfully adapt on mental, emotional, physical, and even spiritual levels." Heart MD Institute.

Here is a simple exercise to try the next time you want to shift out of stress-mode:
  1. Find a relaxed position to sit or stand. This only takes a few moments and you can do it virtually anywhere.
  2. Place one hand on your low belly. Take a deep inhale, letting your belly under your hand expand to the count of 5.
  3. Hold your breath to the count of 5.
  4. Exhale fully to the count of 7, feeling your belly move back toward your spine.
  5. Repeat a few times until you feel more relaxed. Keep your mind focused on the breath and the counting.
This may seem too easy to cause a profound change, and I promise, if you use it regularly, it will create an instant relaxation response as well as other health benefits like lowering blood pressure, helping to regulate hormones, reducing insomnia, carrying more oxygen to your muscles which decreases pain and tension and calming your mind!

Happy relaxing and decreasing stress!!
Abundant Blessings  and Love to you,  Joanie                                  
Finding Help in Essential Oils
The Oil of Grounding

Grounding Blend is primarily a combination of tree oils and roots.  Trees live in the present
moment.  They are not in a hurry.  They are stable.  Grounding Blend's soft energy is excellent for calming overactive children who have difficulty settling down.  It is also a wonderful remedy for adults who need to reconnect with their roots.  Grounding Blend strengthens a connection with the lower body and with the earth.  These connections are especially important when the upper faculties have been overused due to excessive thinking, speaking, or spiritual activity. 

Grounding Blend is especially suited for personalities who seek to escape from life through disconnection or disassociation.  These individuals may avoid long-term commitments in work or relationships, preferring instead to drift.  This blend reminds individuals that to realize their true dreams and desires, they must stay focused on a goal until it is actualized in the physical world.  Grounding Blend teaches true perseverance by assisting the individual in staying present with a specific plan or idea until it is embodies.  Providing inner strength and fortitude, Grounding Blend teaches individuals to ground their energy and to manifest their vision with the patience of a tree.  

 
* One of the most vital things you must know about essential oils is not all essential oils are created equally. In fact, most of them are worthless to your health and often synthetic. When buying essential oils make 
sure they are certified pure therapeutic grade. If you want to order the brand  I trust and personally use,  feel free to email me @ coachjoanie@joanieyanusas.com

Often we take our most precious asset, our partner, for granted. In hectic, stressful, troubled times, the quality of our relationships is more important than ever.

 
We long for a deep connection with our partner.  Yet, so often our self-limiting habits, work stresses, or years of just plain neglect, sidetrack our dream for deep intimacy and loving partnership.
 
When you invest in your most intimate relationship, everything works and everyone benefits. For your happiness, this might just be the most important work you'll ever do as a couple.
