With all the fear around the Covid-19 virus, and the actions being taken to protect us, it seems like a good time to share some of what I know about staying healthy and keeping your immune system functioning optimally.  

Stress is known to compromise immunity, so I thought I could share my top 3 go-to stress management/stress release tips with you.  I hope this is helpful.

1. Your mental state has an effect on your immunity. So then, if you are fearful or angry you stimulate the release of hormones from the endocrine system that then affect the cells responsible for immunity, which causes a decline in your immune function.  Keeping a positive attitude and believing that everything is always working out for you will be very helpful.

2.  Learn and practice meditation techniques.  There are some that can be done a few times daily in as little as 7-10 minutes a day.  Meditation allows the body to reset and to rest.  

3.  Elicit a relaxation response in your body.  In addition to the positive benefits of meditation, you can use visualization, deep breathing, energy healing, prayer, tai chi, yoga, walking meditations, connecting with nature, gratitude, and journaling to reduce the stress response and activate the parasympathetic nervous system. 

These are just a few easy steps to take right away, and you’ll likely choose to make them a permanent part of your daily routine…not just during a time of pandemic.

There are other things you can do to empower yourself in uncertain times. I am part of an industry of home-based business owners able to balance a loss of income outside the home, because I’ve engaged in a side-gig that brings in a residual income from the work I do in the cracks of my day.

With uncertainty surrounding the re-opening of the larger economy, I am able to continue business as usual and HELP other people do the same. In doing so, I’ve helped other people alleviate stress around their finances.

It’s so much more than that, however, since this small business comes with a website, tools, personal development, mentors and a community of people so jazzed about what they do that it is nearly impossible to be anything but optimistic about the present and the future! I’m surrounded by individuals who see solutions, they see opportunity, they are living outside the box and because we have this foundation grounded in personal development, we are able to pivot and help those around us do the same.

In this community we share valuable self-care and wellness tools people need now more than ever! With access to the science-backed, patented products, we are blazing a trail of holistic healing and anti-aging. I can’t think of a better time for everyone to take charge of their health and benefit from the free products the company provides just by being involved. This pandemic has taught us that we cannot take our bodies for granted, and that our mindsets are an integral part of overall well-being.

There are a number of limitations in our world, but the only one that can paralyze you is in your thinking. If you are someone looking for a solution to earning income, then I highly recommend adopting an open mind and reaching out to learn more. You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. This could be the impetus to creating a life you never thought possible.
