As basic items run low, and people hunker down during Quarantine, it’s so important to do what you can to keep up your health.
Like so many other people in this country 🇺🇸 and around the world 🌎, we have felt the impacts of life around us pausing. With the loss of income, eating well on a tight budget needs to remain a focus, as well as supporting a healthy outlook to keep anxiety at bay. Practicing deep breathing 🧘♀️ and taking breaks 🧎🏻♂️to unplug 🔌📺📱💻 and get fresh air 🏞🛤🌤 can help stimulate calm and help you process the situation. If you have access to a trail where it isn’t crowded, sit near a babbling stream and breathe deep the open air. A backyard 🏡, a balcony🌇, or an open window can serve to keep you safe as you listen to the singing birds and feel the breeze.
I’m focusing on immunity supporting foods full of vitamins, protein with aminos to support mental health and function, fiber to feed the microbiome, and food sourced probiotics to keep my digestive tract healthy. Stress triggers my autoimmune response, so it’s vital to give my body everything it needs to make it through a tough time. Life can cause flare-ups, but don’t give up. 🙏🏻💛 Let a loved one know you’re struggling and practice the things that help pull you through. Remember, you are doing every thing you can, one day at a time. Pause and breathe. And know, we are all in this together. 🌎🌍🌏
Drinking celery juice with lemon, apple, greens, and ginger help support the liver and detox.
A smoothie every morning with essential protein and vitamins with addition of nut butter, avocado, banana, and probiotics blended in to support mental health and hormone balance while also being easier on the digestion. Living with autoimmune disease makes digestion difficult at times.
Don’t forget that one of the most important things we can do for our health is to be kind and support one another. We may have to keep our physical distance, but we don’t need to keep our emotional distance, especially during a time like now—it may be more important than ever to reach out to those you love and share some kind words with someone you know is struggling. Spread love during a time of fear. 🙏🏻❤️ Love may be the most beautiful creation of all. Live your art!
