Sometimes it's hard to find a calm space. Not just outwardly but also within ourselves. If you or your child struggles to find calm, try CST! It could change your life forever.
Here, at Vix Holistics, we have a new slightly weighted blanket 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 When covering my clients with a heavier blanket, they get a pleasant sense of security and tranquility. As the result, the body and central nervous system calm down.
Having a slightly heavier cover can really help with reducing anxiety and stress. This helps to release a hormone called serotonin, with the simultaneous reduction of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone.
With the increase of the production of serotonin, also known as the hormone of happiness, and melatonin – the sleep hormone. All this makes it easier to fall asleep or relax 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I find that it also creates a comfortable cocoon that emulates the sensation of getting a warm hug from someone, add to that the gentle heat coming from the couch and you’re set up for a most relaxing, calming, nurturing treatment 💆🏼♀️💆🏼🥰💆🏼♀️💆🏼🥰

FOOD IS THE MOST ABUSED ANXIETY DRUG. AND EXERCISE IS THE MOST UNDERUTILIZED ANTIDEPRESSANT by @Charlie_Smith_Fit
Do you eat when you're stressed? Most of the clients I work with do. And I've done it in the past. It's easy to do.
Have you ever thought to use exercise to cope with your stress? I currently do this.
Movement is an incredible way to get your mind off what's stressing you.
With the obesity epidemic on the rise (35% of men & 40% of women are obese / over 66% of Americans are overweight) I’m guessing you can relate to emotional eating. And I'm guessing that you may not have thought about (or maybe you've thought about it, but haven't utilized it) exercise as a coping strategy.
There are LOTS of reasons why Americans continue to get heavier. One I don't think is talked about that much is how we use/abuse food to distract ourselves from our stress.
We tend to overeat when we're stressed. However, when you're feeling nervous, anxious, or stressed, you usually don't have much of an appetite.
I wonder what would happen if people started using exercise to cope with stress rather than turning to food? Listen, I know this is MUCH easier said than done, & I’m not suggesting exercise will cure all mental health issues, but I firmly believe that exercise can significantly reduce the symptoms of stress.
What do you think?
Musician Mike Posner recently walked 2851 miles across America. He started in Asbury Park, NJ and walked all the way into the Pacific Ocean in Venice Beach, CA.
I listened to a podcast that was recapping his trip and found it really interesting. It's not every day a Grammy nominated, millionaire walks across our country.
He would get up every morning at 4am, stretch have breakfast, and then start walking. As you can imagine, he went through some hard times. Including being hospitalized after getting bit by a snake.
He used two concepts I thought were really impactful that I wanted to share with you.
Big Me vs Little Me
When times started getting real hard and he wanted to quit he say, "No that is little me talking. Big Me is going to keep going.," Having that strong, inner voice can be so powerful!
Because we all go through hard times and every day there is an opportunity to make that choice. Do I quit or can I keep pushing just a little further?
We all have more in us, use that Big Me more often.
No Out Clause
That's the thing about exercise and eating right for most of us. We could easily quit any time, do less in our workouts, eat more junk food, etc... It is not REALLY life and death for the majority of people. And humans naturally seek comfort over pain, so we ease our foot off the gas pedal and take things down a notch. We are doing good enough, right?
We all have that OUT when we need it. What if you have yourself a NO Out Clause like Mike Posner did? He was going to walk across America if it killed him. That was how deep he was in it!
That is something I miss about jiujitsu. There is no slowing down or quitting when someone is trying to choke you or break your arm.
When I quit my guaranteed paycheck every two weeks no matter what government job and went full time into my no guaranteed income business it was scary! Failure was not an option so it made me do the things I had to do to be successful.
How far could you go if failure was not an option?
I'm not saying you have to walk across America or quit your job. What I am saying is that you have more in you. Bring out the Big Me and don't give yourself an out.
