Today, I’m going to share with you an email that a friend, Tracy, sent to me. I encourage you to follow her on her Facebook Group Page. Read below for a bunch of PRACTICAL tactics to live a healthier life. She’s a podcast/book/webinar junkie and loves sharing simple healthy tips based on what she continues to learn during her own health journey.
Now for few words from Tracy’s emails…
…What if we slowed down enough to only ask one thing of ourselves each day? What if we took things one at a time? Doesn't that sound kind? I'm all about self-kindness these days. We're too hard on ourselves! Anyway, as I mentioned, I've become a webinar/podcast/book junkie over the past year or two and I feel like I'm bursting with amazing information that I would love to share with all my friends. Doesn't everyone want the cliff notes version these days?! Well, I want to be your cliff notes!
… Thanks for supporting me and my desire to share and make our community stronger… Your kindness and support inspire me to keep moving forward with Just One Thing!
So here's the definition of body burden and following are links to many, many things you can change in your life to reduce your family's body burden. Like I said many times today, pick one or pick ten but don't get overwhelmed. Stress negates any changes we make!
Body burden (n): The load born by the body, weighted by toxic chemicals, (ie. nasties) from the environment and everyday items that totally mess with the body's health.
