Making-Healthy-Choices e-Zine #027 - Best Ways to Stay Healthy While You Party
December 10, 2013
In this month's e-Zine...
Easy Cold Remedy Anyone Can Make
As we are travelling now, I am not in my own kitchen. This means I don’t have all my fun ingredients at hand. But it is all good!!
The other day while visiting a beautiful friend I dug around in her kitchen to make a healing drink for John (who was a little congested).
This is what I came up with and it occurred to me that, since I easily found these ingredients in her kitchen, that probably most people readily have these things on hand.
Put all ingredients except hot water in a tall glass (or big mug). Add a little hot water and stir well to mix everything and dissolve the honey. Then top up the glass with more hot water, sip and enjoy. Continue to stir as you sip or else the ingredients will settle on the bottom of the glass.
This tasted GREAT and it really helped John to feel better. A wonderfully warming drink full of ancient healing foods!
Quick Tips to Stay Healthy While Partying
As we quickly roll into the busy holiday season, I thought these tips may be helpful to some.
Often, at this time of year, there are many parties and social gatherings to attend and it is easy to get run down and sick. Below are some easy tips and tricks to stay healthy, balanced and energized while still enjoying the season.
Most of all breathe and enjoy! This is a time of sharing love with special people in our lives - keep sight of that and bring that love into everything you are doing.
Learning as We Travel
We have been on the road now for about 2.5 months and I wanted to share with you one of my favourite things about extended travelling.
One of the things I absolutely love the most is talking to older people in different countries and learning from them. I love listening to them tell me about what life was like when they were small, about how their mothers would take care of them. By listening and asking questions I gain a tremendous amount of knowledge of natural healing therapies, time proven home remedies and so so many life tricks.
Ancient wisdom being passed on to me through conversations with beautiful souls that allow me to glimpse back in time and incorporate this wisdom into my life now. I can’t tell you how honored and grateful I feel for these wonderful opportunities to listen and learn.
These conversations don’t always happen in English and I often cannot speak the local language but, nevertheless, the wisdom always gets imparted. It is like the information has a life of its own and it will find a way to be understood and passed on.
Recently in Thailand we talked with a man that knew so much about ancient tools used for doing massage. We were able to acquire some of these simple yet effective massage tools.
Another time in Japan I stumbled into a conversation with a Japanese lady who told me all about simple things her mother would do to keep them healthy. They lived in a small rural village very far away from the closest doctor and she had so many really neat things to share!
As I spend time in different countries and talk to many people I also see much similarity in the methods that our ancestors used to naturally keep their loved ones healthy, strong and balanced. We are all connected and looking back in time, I truly believe, is where the keys are to living a naturally healthy life.
I will continue to learn as we travel and to share everything I learn in these newsletters and on our website.
