Skin issues are definitely not skin-deep. As the largest organ in our body, skin reflects the condition inside our body. Sometimes, the best way to relieve skin problems is the fix the root cause so that they can be taken care of once and for all.

I see so many women who spend a huge amount of money on creams that tout the benefits of improved look and feel of their skin, however, the answer to most skin conditions is through proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

While it is likely that you think about how nutrition affects your internal health and your weight, you may not realize that eating the right foods can also improve the quality of your skin. And all of these amazing skin care products are found right in your local grocery store.

Compromise: A secret ingredient to every failure

Under a magnifier

Meet Andrea. A successful 30 something girl. We will walk with her through her day today and look for some patterns.

It is Wednesday today, the day when Andrea usually goes for her morning yoga in the park. The classes start at 6.30AM so she still has time for a quick shower before she gets into her office. But not today. Today Matt (well, he’s a ‘keeper’) asked her to accompany him for breakfast as he has some important business growth ideas he needs someone to bounce off.

Of course she said ‘yes’. But also, she didn’t want to miss on her morning workout. 5.30AM her alarm clock rings as she decided to wake up half an hour earlier than usually to go for a quick run. Then, she will come back home, take a shower, dress nicely and will be ready for the breakfast as promised. Lucky, there is always a way to find a compromise!

The balance between the two female sex hormones – estrogen and progesterone – is critical to maintaining optimal health. Unfortunately, this hormonal balance can be thrown out of whack by factors such as stress, excess weight, not enough sleep, and sometimes side effects from certain medications or environmental factors.

Hormonal balance is a big concern for many women, and it can affect so many areas of our physical and emotional wellbeing. Constantly saying ‘no’ to your partner can also put an uncomfortable strain on your relationship, which then can impact so many other parts of our life.

Recent studies show that an estimated 40 to 50 percent of women in the US and Canada suffer from a low sex drive.   As our lives get busier and busier with both professional and personal demands, it’s easy to put sex low on the ‘to do’ list.

How to minimize stress in only 3 minutes a day

You know those times when you need to hit a re-set button? Those moments when things feel like they’re spinning out of control, and it’s hard to get a handle on life? When stress starts to cloud your thinking? 

How-to-minimize-stress-sensual-appeal

I’m talking about times that you’re… 

…overwhelmed at work and can’t think straight

…unable to focus on your tasks

…anxious about a conversation you have to have, and can’t let it go

…angry and in pain because you stubbed your toe

…frustrated that you can’t fall asleep because your mind is racing

…unable to relax enough to do a decent yoga session or meditate

The technique I’m going to show you now will help you with all of these moments, along with any other times that stress tries to take over your life.

Not only that, but it will deeply balance the communication within your brain, leading to improvements in overall health, enhanced clarity and focus, and a balanced nervous system. All in just a few minutes. (For real)

Be sure to follow along as I show you how to minimize stress in only 3 minutes a day : )

I highly recommend making this technique a part of your daily life.

Getting in the habit of doing this every day will keep you calm and peaceful throughout the day, give you greater clarity, and reduce emotional turmoil.

It’s also great for headaches, and falling asleep : )

The effects of this technique are cumulative, so the more you practice, the more you’ll notice how dramatic the shifts are.

It’s like a secret weapon for fighting stress and overwhelm.

Even though it may seem tricky the first time you do it (like rubbing your belly and patting your head…), with practice it becomes second nature and you’ll find yourself doing it all the time.

I hope you enjoy it, and if you have any friends that could use a stress re-set tool, pass it along!
