Whether it’s the coronavirus, or the common cold or flu, the following tips are going to ensure that you are able to breathe deep and free. These tips will keep your lungs healthy and airway passages open and clean. Enjoy!
Pound on your chest like an ape does to loosen lungs and boost the immune system
Do deep breathwork – especially before you get out of bed in the morning
Stay hydrated- the lungs need lots of water, warm water is best and add lemon to act as a mucous dissolver
Use a neti pot with filtered warm saline water
Steam eucalyptus and peppermint- put a towel over your head and inhale through your nose
Keep the air in your home clean
Change the air filter in your home
Use an air purifier
Use a humidifier (add a couple of drops of colloidal silver to disinfect the air)
Add indoor plants
Use green cleaning supplies
Use an essential oil diffuser with Clean the Air essential oil
Do side bending stretches to open your ribs to allow your lungs to expand
Massage your intercostal muscles (between the ribs) with your index finger to relax tense muscles and allow the lungs to expand. This helps especially if you have been coughing and the ribs tense up.
Do cardiovascular exercise to keep the lungs and lymph clean
Avoid heavy foods such as fried oils, gluten, and dairy products that create or thicken mucous
Wishing you much health and wellness during this time where respiratory health is of utmost importance.
How’s it going for you right now? Isn’t it crazy to think that the entire globe is in quarantine right now? We are definitely experiencing a monumental time in world history.
How has the coronavirus pandemic affected you? Are you still working? Are you home? How are your loved ones and home life right now? I absolutely have been affected by this and I am no longer working in a physical business. I also relocated back to my former home that I had sold to my children’s father. Thankfully we have been on good terms for many years so the door is always open. My children have also home since school and work have been canceled. However, my son works for Sprouts Natural Market and he’s now working overtime. So much adjusting is taking place right now.
However, instead of panicking I am staying calm. I am simply readjusting the financial goals that I had set for the spring season and I am now focusing on putting more love into my online health and wellness business. Which I have been wanting to do for the longest time, but there were other demands at hand. I’ll be re-launching my Spring cleanse program soon, so keep your eyes open. If you aren’t signed up for my newsletter you will want to do that now. Good things are coming.
I know I am feeling good and finding my power and I want that for you as well so this past weekend, I partnered up with Eric Coplen of Dawn Your Revolution. We discuss our thoughts on the Coronavirus Global Reset and Eric also guides us through a beautiful Heart Coherence Meditation.
Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have to elevate our mental, emotional, and physical state. If you are on limited time, fast forward to 18 minutes to jump right into the meditation. I guarantee that you will feel better after watching and participating in the video.
Growing up I was raised in a home that was filled with intense intimidation, criticism, punishment, physical and verbal abuse. Every time I was put down I was completely deflated and felt like a failure. Over the years I grew resentful because I never thought of myself the way I was being told I was. Eventually, my resentment turned into rebellion and I completely sabotaged all of the wonderful things in my life because I was in pain and I didn’t know how to process it in a healthy way.
At 14 years of age, I went from being a straight-A student and an incredible athlete to failing multiple classes in school. I started getting involved in criminal activity at the age of 15. I sabotaged my opportunities for college scholarships and barely graduated high school. I was arrested and went to jail by the age of 18.
I didn’t understand I was in pain. I didn’t understand how powerful love, support and words of affirmation would be on the outcome of young children. It wasn’t until I saw this video by Wayne Dyer that I was completely touched and knew that I wanted to do things differently with my own children. I didn’t want to repeat the pattern of criticism and constant put-downs that I was exposed to. This video changed me as a mother. I wasn’t going to get positive feedback from punishment. Looking at my own life I knew that was true, I was living proof.
My dream in sharing this is that you see your power in the way that you interact with people around you and find yourself uplifting and supporting others rather than complaining and criticizing them whether it’s the people that you work with, your children, your spouse, or your family members. May you be mindful that many people act out negatively because of pain. It is possible that our presence alone can change the direction of another person’s life because we chose to lift them up rather than put them down.
It would be a dream to see more parents, teachers, and law-enforcement officials take on the art of reminding others of the good in them as expressed in this video. I know it has deeply impacted my life and my hope is that it inspires you to act and transform the way you relate and respond to negativity. I hope that you see negativity for what it is: a cry for love. May you be inspired to love those in pain back to health. May you be inspired to be the light in your world.
