My Body My Temple My Choices Kosia yourself

Water, Food, Breath, Movement, and Tranquility

Water: Your body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate its temperature and maintain other bodily functions. Because your body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, it's important to rehydrate by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water. Water does more than just quench your thirst and regulate your body's temperature; it also keeps the tissues in your body moist.The kidneys and liver use it to help flush out waste, as do your intestines, so get to drinking

Food: We could get food benefits for the healthy body if we consume healthy foods regularly, and recently this research shows that chemicals in certain foods such as sulforaphane, a phytochemical in broccoli,  work with your genes to ratchet body’s natural defense system, helps inactivate toxins and free radicals before they can do the damage that leads to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and even premature aging.

Breath: Oxygen is absolutely essential to providing your body with the necessary energy to heal and to enjoy life! Our breathing patterns correlate directly to the issues we deal with daily. Imbalances in our body, mind, or spirit can be healed by altering our breathing patterns.  The more restricted the breathing pattern, The less air and oxygen you process. You are actually denying the life force from your being. Of course, all this is occurring unconsciously but you can regain life by letting go of these restricted breathing patterns.

Movement: So if you're wondering "why is exercise important?", it is so you can increase your human longevity potential. Certain physical exercise benefits that lead to changes in life expectancy are the strengthening of muscle and bone, the flushing of toxins out of tissues, the circulation of blood to the tissues (nutrients, energy and oxygen), the clearing of stagnant emotions and much more.

Tranquility:  Most of us are rarely in tranquil environments or even get a chance to notice the beauty around us.  Remember the old saying, "stop and smell the roses?"  The true meaning is all about finding peace and tranquility in your life.  Today's  lifestyles are so high-speed, you rarely get a chance to stop and do anything other than mind-race about your "to-do" list or worry about the things you didn't get done. When was the last time you took a moment to gaze at the ocean and just watch and listen to the waves hit the shore? It can be a wonderfully mesmerizing and stress relieving experience. How about watching an exquisite sunset, or the leaves on a tree blowing in the wind?  These experiences are natural stress relievers and can provide wonderful moments of tranquility.  When you allow yourself to soak in and appreciate these peaceful moments you can experience instant stress relief and inner peace.

Take care of yourself
