Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

3 Steps to Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

 

Often we humans get strongly attached to the outcomes we desire in life and if these do not meet our expectations we tend to get deeply disappointed. Focusing constantly on these feelings of disappointment we begin to sow seeds of Unwellness!

If you have felt that way, consider taking these 3 steps that will shift your view point and harness the power of your gifts to make roads for your Wellness.

 

1. Finding your Gifts

Expand your vision, look at yourself and what surrounds you. You will soon find you have been blessed with countless gifts that you were not even aware of or have taken for granted… and that life itself is a gift!

You have the miraculous gift of a self regulatory body. A heart that constantly beats itself… A digestive process that works to provide nourishment from the food that nature provides … Breath that provides you with life and countless other automated processes that give you the gift of livingness and human experience on Earth.

You will find you are surrounded with an abundance of gifts from Nature! The Sun that gives our days Light, warmth, nutrients, cheer… The Earth that houses us, grounds us, shelters innumerable other creatures and forms of life, grows infinite variety of trees, plants, herbs, vegetables, fruits that provide us with healthy and tasty feasts, nourishment, healing colours, herbs and sounds. The Atmosphere, seas and forests that provide us with healthy frequencies and rich ions. The life giving air we breathe, the water we drink, the darkness of night so we can recuperate…

 

2. Appreciate your Gifts

Once you awaken to the presence of these rich gifts, you will never take them for granted or abandon them. Let us not come to this realisation once we are unwell, for Wellness itself is a gift ! Take time to appreciate the gifts life gives and what they bring to you…  We are sentient Beings and have the unique gift to feel and experience.. Linger in the morning rays of the sun, watch the amazing colours of the sunset, the calm moonlight, the twinkling of stars in the vast sky, the aroma and colour of flowers, the amazing shapes and tastes of varied plants and fruits, feel grateful for them and remain in a state of awe for this bounty!

 

3. Focus on the feelings of Gratitude

Learn to repeatedly focus on your gifts, the feelings of gratitude and the state of awe they bring. Focusing on the feelings of Gratitude brings joy to the heart, triggers the release of  healing chemicals by the body laying strong grounds for your Wellness!

The Ultimate Brain 'Supplement'.

 

The Ultimate brain supplement that actively prevents Neuro-Degeneration and unhealthy states of  the brain, is not derived from food or Nutritional Supplements, it is Physical Exercise!

Unhealthy and Degenerative Brain states like Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Depression, Cognitive decline affect the quality of our lives and are all on the rise. Studies show Exercise is the Ultimate Brain supplement that can actively prevent these maladies by stimulating and increasing levels of BDNF in the brain.

BDNF……What?

BDNF, short for ‘Brain Derived Neurotrophic factor’ is a substance produced in the hippocampus of the brain that is essential for the Survival, Maintenance and Growth of the nerve cells or neurons.

Increase in BDNF levels encourages the  growth and regeneration of neurons and thus is a valuable tool in preventing Alzheimer’s, Dementia and other Neuro-degenerative diseases.

While there are other factors that also contribute to increase in BDNF production, the greatest increase occurs with Physical Exercise !   

What kind of physical exercise increases this BDNF?

BDNF stimulation and increase occurs with most exercise, however the greatest increase has been found to occur with exercise that makes you huff and puff !

That could be various forms of Aerobic exercises, Acrobatics, Resistance exercises and even includes Dancing!

Here are some ways you could begin to incorporate this valuable tool in your daily life for preventing unhealthy states like Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Depression and Cognitive decline.

Find a form of Exercise you enjoy

Research has found that enjoyable voluntary exercise increases BDNF levels more than enforced forms of exercise. It also means that you will stick with doing it and thus reap its health promoting rewards.

Do Something Regularly and preferably Daily

Research shows that shorter periods (twenty to sixty minutes) of daily or frequent exercise is more effective than longer periods of infrequent exercise.

Add Variety to your Exercise Regime

Incorporate exercises that provide Novelty and Variety to your exercise regime which improve agility, balance, coordination and also prevent boredom.

Get Outdoors

Exercising outdoors especially in quiet green spaces improves blood flow to the brain, an important factor in brain function . Additionally sunshine and Vitamin D has also been found to increase BDNF levels.

So make optimal use of this invaluable, inexpensive, innate supplement, wear your sneakers or dancing shoes, create an exercise program for yourself that has novelty, that you can do frequently, preferably outdoors and which makes your heart sing and benefits your Brain, body and entire Wellness !
