The Surprising Health Benefits of Bathing

The Surprising Health Benefits of Bathing

Soaking in a warm tub doesn’t just feel good. Bath time can provide a wide variety of mental and physical health benefits.

Sure, doctors in ancient Rome may have overestimated the therapeutic powers of the water cure. Regardless of what Hippocrates said, you probably don’t want to rely on a bath to cure pneumonia, but you can still find relief for less serious ailments. Just ensure you rinse off completely, dry your skin gently, and get out of the tub after about 10 to 15 minutes to avoid dry skin.

Prepare to unwind with plain warm water or fancy bombs and salts. Learn more about how to enjoy the medicinal value of bathing.

Mental Health Benefits of Bathing

  1. Fight depression. Immersing yourself in warm water raises serotonin and endorphin levels. Those are two of the main brain chemicals associated with happiness and wellbeing.
  2. Relieve stress. Soaking away tension may be the first thing that comes to mind. Dim the lights, turn off your phone, and slather yourself with a fragrant moisturizer afterwards.
  3. Continue learning. Prop your head on a bath pillow and read a book or listen to a lecture on audiotape. Acquiring knowledge and insights can sharpen your thinking and may even protect you from certain forms of dementia.
  4. Sleep better. Warming up in the bathtub before bed raises your core temperature. When you start to cool off, your body will produce melatonin that makes you feel sleepy. That good night’s rest is good for your mind and body.
  5. Feel connected. Psychologists at Yale found some evidence that loneliness makes us bathe more because our brains associate physical warmth with the affection we may be missing. Try taking a bath while you’re working on your relationships.
  6. Make minor adjustments. Add essential oils into the mix for whatever results you want. For example, chamomile tends to be calming while rosemary stimulates memory.

Physical Health Benefits of Bathing

  1. Boost circulation. Hydrotherapy increases blood flow and may strengthen your immune system. To try it at home, splash yourself with cold water while sitting in a warm tub.
  2. Pamper your feet. If you’re short on time or conserving water, you can still get your feet wet. Fill a basin with warm water and add a few drops of peppermint oil.
  3. Soothe your skin. Experiment with bath products and natural ingredients known to stop itching, treat sunburn, or moisturize your skin. If you sat too long in the sun, dip into cool water with two cups of vinegar. Try cornstarch or milk for dry skin.
  4. Reduce congestion. Steam is a natural antidote for congestion when you have allergies or a cold. If breathing in a steamy bathroom isn’t enough, wrap a towel around your head and lower it over a bowl of hot water to help break up and loosen mucus. Eucalyptus oil or mustard powder can help the process too.
  5. Lower a fever. If you’re running a fever, you may be able to cool off with a sponge bath. Use warm water because cold water or alcohol can make your temperature drop too quickly.
  6. Banish body aches. Did you overdo it at the gym? Add a cup or two of Epsom salts to your bathwater to shrink inflamed tissues and relieve soreness.
  7. Give birth. What if you’re expecting? The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says that birthing pools might have some benefits during the first stage of labor. Advocates claim warm water can reduce pain and accelerate labor.

Enhance your overall wellbeing while you clean up. Hop into the tub to enjoy some masteryrefreshment and healing. You deserve it.

Take a hot bath and report back.

warmly,

Discover How to Use Your Subconscious Mind to Get What You Want

Discover How to Use Your Subconscious Mind to Get What You Want

You’re familiar with your conscious mind. You use it to choose a channel on the TV or to decide what you’re going to have for dinner.

But there’s another aspect to your mind, the subconscious. Your subconscious is most active during sleep and when you’re mildly distracted. Consider how many brilliant ideas you’ve had while showering, driving, mowing the grass, or taking a walk.

When you’re alone and relaxed, but mildly occupied, your subconscious can shine. Your conscious mind is occupied enough for your subconscious to speak to you. During most of the day, your conscious mind is making too much noise.

Your subconscious is active day and night. Few people take advantage of this powerful resource. Imagine having such a powerful ally working for you 24/7. You’d be unstoppable.

Your subconscious is a bit like a savant. It’s brilliant in some ways, but not too bright in others. Think of it as a computer with a vast store of information. It wants to help you, but it needs simple instructions.

So how can you take advantage of this powerful resource?

Use this process to put your subconscious to work for you:

  1. Make a request of your subconscious mind. While lying in bed at night, tell your subconscious what you want. Write it down. There’s something more concrete when you take pen to paper. It also engages your brain at a higher level.
  • For example: “I want to find three creative, effective, and inexpensive ways to market my business.”
  • Read the request aloud five times.
  • Write your request five times and then turn off the light.
  1. Imagine yourself being successful. In our example, how will you feel when you find and implement these three creative ideas? How will your life and finances change?
  1. Repeat steps one and two in the morning. It will only take three minutes. You can do it. Of course, you won’t be turning off the light when you’re finished. It’s time to start your day!
  2. Pay attention. You’ll find your subconscious feeding you solutions over the next few days. It’s important to pay attention to them. Write them down. Thank your subconscious for the information.
  3. Act on the information. This is the biggest sticking point for most people. We love to gather information, but fail to act. Use the ideas that are presented by your subconscious. If you fail to act on them, you’ll eventually stop receiving them. No one likes to be ignored, including your subconscious!
  • Even the smallest action can have a big impact. Avoid being like everyone else that ignores their great ideas.
  1. Be patient. While your subconscious can present you with advice very quickly, implementing habit changes can take weeks. For example, if you want your subconscious to assist you in changing your diet and exercise habits, you might not see any progress for a few weeks. Be patient.

The subconscious is a powerful tool that few use to their advantage. It’s been suggested that your subconscious can consider billions of possibilities during a night of sleep. The information your subconscious provides is very high quality. It’s the best your brain has to offer from billions of options. Why aren’t you using it?

Start small so you can experience a few easy successes. The confidence you’ll gain will be beneficial when making requests that require more time to fulfill. Your subconscious is always busy, so ensure it’s busy working on the things you desire!

How to build your self esteem by doing your thing.

How to build your self esteem by doing your thing.

On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your self esteem? Is it easy for you to be loud and proud and share with others your opinion? You work? How about your personal needs or preferences? Does your environment and home reflect who you are as a person? It is worth considering.

Take a deep breath.

Now I want you to Ask yourself: Who are you trying to impress?  Take just a moment and think about it. What is the first thing that pops into your mind? Your family? Your significant other? Your second grade teacher? If the answer is anyone but yourself then you need to stop seeking approval from others and begin to enjoy greater self-esteem by doing your own thing.

Approval-seeking behavior is self-sabotaging. It is exactly the opposite of being authentic. If you are seeking approval outside of yourself you are not paying attention to your inner voice, the voice of your authentic self. Besides, trying to impress others is exhausting and minimizes your own importance and individuality. The only person that you need to impress is yourself.

So if authenticity is one of your core values do you see how you would feel conflicted or like you were hiding something? Is the thing that you are hiding from others your SELF?

just dance www.askaeriol.com

Free yourself from the need to receive approval from others:

  1. Speak up. Share your opinion. One symptom of approval-seeking behavior is the hesitance to share your own opinion. You worry that you might say something that the other person doesn’t like or doesn’t approve of and since it was your opinion, they might not approve of you either.
    • Give your opinion, even if it makes you uncomfortable. Start with smaller things. Do you think it will rain? Do you prefer red or white? Which movie would you like to see? Vanilla or chocolate?
  2. Avoid judging others. If you’re busy in your head being overly critical of others, you are not being fully present with what is going on before you. In this autopilot state of being it’s only natural that you assume others are the same towards you. This will tie you up in a knot. By training yourself to avoid this type of behavior, you’ll be less likely to make a negative assumption that everyone else is judging you. This strategy frees everyone up. Allow others to be as they are. It makes life more interesting. Sit back and enjoy the differences.
    • Notice your thoughts. Are you constantly judging others in a variety of situations?
    • Instill a habit to uplift and inspire others to find their way event if it is different than your own. Celebrate differences and perspective and watch the flow open up in your life.
  3. Beware of energetic manipulation and how you allow it. Realize that others can use disapproval can be used as a weapon. Many people use disapproval as a means of getting what they want. They may disapprove of your opinion, clothing, hairstyle, or anything else to enjoy the fruits of your submission. This is a form of energetic manipulation and once you become aware of the pattern it is up to you to break the cycle.
    • Call people on their disapproval of you. It is important that you stand up for yourself. Ask them to explain themselves if you are unclear about their stance. Remember that most negative people are looking for a victim, not a fight. When you stick up for yourself, many of the bullies disappear.
    • Knowing this can free you from seeking the approval of others. In many cases, they’re just in the game for themselves.
  4. Be aware of what happens when someone disapproves of you. Nothing happens. We seem to be born with an intense desire to fit in. But what actually happens when someone disapproves of you? The sky doesn’t fall on top of you. You might suffer from a little anxiety or embarrassment, but it passes. You are best served by learning energy tools to call back your energy to yourself and re-train negative thoughts in a more productive direction
  5. Do some things for yourself. If you’re constantly seeking approval, you’re not taking very good care of yourself. Adopt a daily practice of RADICAL Self Care. Show yourself that you’re important by focusing some of your time and energy on yourself. It might be a little bit uncomfortable at first. You might even feel selfish.
    • Make a date with yourself and schedule it in your calendar and honor it as an important obligation. This is sacred time for yourself and you are building a relationship with yourself. It is important that you know you are a priority in your life.
  6. Fill your life with things that are important. If you had to run across the street naked to save your dog’s life, you wouldn’t be worried about anyone’s opinion. That’s because your dog’s life is more important than your ego. But you don’t need a disaster to experience this.
    • Volunteer with an organization that’s doing important work in an area that you are passionate about.
    • Write a book that you believe will change peoples lives for the better.
    • Find ways to spend your time and energy on things you value.

By filling your life with people, activities and things that you value and are passionate about you will feel more ease in all areas of your life. You’ll find that you enjoy more freedom, more joy and genuine contentment in the other, less important, parts of your life.

Being overly concerned about the opinions of others is damaging to your self-esteem. Each time you seek approval outside of yourself, you’re diminishing your own self importance. Your opinion matters. Allow your individuality to be seen and experienced by others. Remember the old adage: “What other people think of you is none of your business.” It is only by embodying and aligning your highest self that you can feel the sense of approval you are searching for.

Experience Freedom by setting your authentic self free

Do you long for freedom? Do you realize that only you have the power to Set Yourself Free? Are you ready to get real and be your authentic self?

Authenticity is often underrated. It’s more than being honest with the world or speaking your mind. It’s about being honest with yourself and who you are and how you are being. There are many advantages to being authentic. Most importantly, you’ll no longer feel the need to change your words and actions to impress others. Being in authentic is EXHAUSTING! What other people think of you is none of your business. You can relax and be yourself.

Before you can be completely authentic, it’s important to know yourself. Who are you really? You need to develop a certain level of self-awareness. This includes clarity around your values and goals. This also includes developing a relationship with your higher self. Developing communication with your inner self and tuning into your body consciously on a regular basis. Authenticity becomes possible when you know what’s truly important to you as a person and as a spirit.

life-path-dolly-parton

Embrace authenticity and present yourself honestly:

  1. Give up the need to appear perfect. When you don’t need to appear perfect, you’re in the position to be honest. If you are spending to much time thinking about this you are in your head or listening to you negative ego. If you are in your heart and doing what is authentic you are not hiding or covering up anything. You are transparent. No one can be perfect and honest at the same time. Avoid putting on a show for the rest of the world. You’ll only feel bad about yourself later.
    • It’s okay to be less than spectacular. Be the best at being yourself.
  2. Know your values and live by them. If you know your core values and live by them consistently, you’re already doing well in the authenticity department. More importantly I want you to embody your values. When you are congruent with the energies or your values you actually begin to emit those energies to others. You can only do this my writing them down and referring back to them on a regular basis. Make it part of your daily practice. For myself some of my values include: Freedom, Self-Expression, Creativity, Light-heartedness, Love, Authenticity, Compassion, desire to learn and my list goes on….
    • Make a list of your core values and determine the top 5-7 that are most important to you. Are you living your life in alignment to these values? Would it be obvious to others that you hold these values?
    • Decide to make your decisions based upon your core values. Be willing to share your values with others. If something is not in alignment with what you stand for consider if you want it in your life or if you want to make some changes. It is only by making these distinctions can you start to build a reality and a world that is in harmony with who you are on a deep authentic level.
  3. Notice when you’re not being authentic. It’s not easy to be authentic all the time. You might find yourself transforming based on the situation. A first date is a good example. Or going into a networking event trying to size up a new group. Are you being authentic or pretending to be someone you’re not? Are you able to share what you are about or do you clam up?
    • Take note of those times your authenticity starts to wane. Notice if you are participating in conversations or just giving lip service without fully engaging with others. Many times we are in a conversation and we don’t even hear what the other person is saying because we are inside ourselves trying to think of what we will say as soon as the other person stops talking! It is important to be able to stay present and be with others. It is equally important to be able to share authentically when it is our time.
  4. Know your goals. What do you want out of life? What direction are you headed in? What are you passionate about? Do you know what steps you need to take to get to where you want to be? Are you willing to let others know what you want and how you intend to get there? By knowing your goals, you can you live your life and direct your activities and energy accordingly. You have to be willing to really look deeply at your motivations and be aware of your intentions.
    • Make a list of your short-term and long-term goals. How well do they align with your values? Are they your goals from your most authentic heart or are you trying to get something to win approval?
  5. What are your defining characteristics? Describe yourself honestly. Now ask yourself if a casual acquaintance would describe you the same way? How about someone that knows you well? How about your closest friend?
    • How many people know you well? If there aren’t many, ask yourself why. If you’re living authentically, it should be easy for someone to develop an accurate opinion of you because you will have nothing to hide. You will project clarity and direction. If you are not being authentic you will project uncertainty or perhaps even indifference.
    • What are your “negative” characteristics? Are you impatient, gossipy, self centered or messy? Are you willing to allow others to see these characteristics or do you attempt to hide them?
  6. Tell the truth. If you’re being authentic, why would you need to lie? This pertains especially to anything you say about yourself. Admit your mistakes, weaknesses, and frailties. Share your opinions honestly and freely.
  7. Simplify your life. Get rid of everything that’s extraneous. What you choose to keep will be representative of your preferences and your true self. Find your true essence by stripping away the non-essential. Start with the clothes you never wear, the things you never use, and the activities you don’t enjoy. Only keep the things that mean the most to you.
  8. Do what you say you’ll do. Or as Don Miguel Ruiz says in the 4 Agreements: Be your Word. Keep your word and follow through on your promises. Language is the manifestation of thought. Use your super power of words and language wisely. Choose words that uplift. Choose to keep your word when you say you will do something. Your word is who you are. You’ll feel more congruent, and others will view you as more congruent. When your words and actions match, you’re demonstrating authenticity.

Life becomes easier when you’re living authentically. You’ll no longer feel the exhaustion that comes with constantly changing your opinions, attitudes, and personality to please others. You’ll no longer feel the need to protect yourself from others.

Whenever possible choose to be authentic with your thoughts, words, and actions. Invest the time in yourself and learn to be free.

Developing Healthy Habits to make positive change

Developing Healthy Habits to make positive change: A Handy Guide to Self-Discipline

Whether you want to drink more water, start an exercise plan or simply be more mindful in your life, in order to make any changes we need to develop healthy habits to support our new lifestyle choice. Let’s face it, you not only have to want to change but you are going to need a little self- discipline.

Self-discipline seems to be the thing that everyone else has, right? While there may be a few that are fortunate enough to be self-motivated most of us require some sort of self-discipline plan to motivate us. Self-discipline is the ability to do something that you don’t feel like doing. We each have a limited supply, but we can grow our capacity for self-discipline over time.

Those with high levels of self-control have been found to be happier than those with low levels. It’s believed this is due to reduced internal conflict. Those with less self-control are constantly struggling to make decisions between competing goals. Those with more self-control make decisions more rationally and much more quickly.
olajuwon quote

Increase your ability to control yourself:

  1. Success without discipline is a myth. Successful people appear to have ten times more talent than the rest of us, but successful people work very hard to be successful. The ability to control your thoughts and actions creates success. Hard work requires discipline, because it usually isn’t fun.
  2. Avoid waiting until you feel inspired to take action. As a creative I am so guilty of this one! I know we all want to be “in the flow.” But with all the forms of entertainment, social media and other distractions, it’s logical to assume that we should feel inspired to do the things that need to be accomplished.
  3. Quality of life and comfort are often at odds. If you are too comfortable you are not growing. Self-discipline can be used to engage in activities that aren’t comfortable. Only then will you enjoy a high quality of life.
  4. Learn to complete tasks. Let finishing become your code. Become a finisher. Regardless of the task, see it through to the end. Don’t let you inner perfectionist stop you either! My coach Caterina Rando always says “Done is better than perfect.” You can always make upgrades later. The important thing is to keep in action.  And when you start something, finish it.
  5. Do the hardest thing first. Your self-discipline is highest early in day. SO get that tough item crossed off your to-do list as soon as possible. For me, it is getting on my treadmill desk to check my morning e-mail so that I can get my 30 minutes in before I start the rest of my busy day.
  6. Learn to stay with discomfort. Do you have the urge to go to the kitchen for a snack? Make yourself wait another 30 minutes. Whenever you’re feeling uncomfortable, make yourself stay with it just a little longer. Teach yourself that your discomfort is only a suggestion. Figure out what it is trying to tell you. Check in with your body and your emotions. You don’t have to cave in.
  7. Take time to enjoy yourself. This is the best way to replenish your willpower. Stress, hunger, and fatigue drain your ability to exercise self-discipline. So eat a good meal and get a full night of sleep. Take care of your body and take care that your spirit is being nourished. Take part in enjoyable activities.
  8. Know your outcome. Make your vision board. Write a manifesto of your desired outcome and put it somewhere that you see it daily. Spend time being with your compelling vision on a daily basis. Keep your eyes on the prize. Self-discipline becomes easier when you’re able to maintain a long-term perspective.
  9. Develop habits. Creating a habit of making your bed each morning eliminates the need for discipline. Habits are powerful. Put yourself on autopilot and use the power of habits to your advantage.
  10. Meditate. Studies have shown that mediation strengthens the part of the brain responsible for self-control. I have created a library of affirmation meditations at my YouTube channel or you can Buy a book or find a local meditation group.
  11. Use affirmations. When you feel your resolve weakening, recite positive affirmations to yourself. This is a great time to utilize the affirmation meditations at my You Tube Channel. Keep your mind occupied on something positive while you get your work done.
  12. Give yourself frequent breaks. Setting a schedule that’s too aggressive will quickly diminish your self-discipline. Give yourself regular breaks to ensure that you stay alert and fresh. Also along these lines I want to remind you to give yourself enough travel time so you can be prepared and feel centered if you are having an appointment outside outside of your office.

Well, what do you think? How much self-discipline do you have? Your level of self-discipline can affect your diet, health, fitness, finances, career, and relationships. Self-discipline is a learned behavior, so you can develop your self-discipline if you choose. With enough self-discipline, you can achieve any goal.

10 Habits of Happy People

Do you ever wonder why are some people happy all of the time? The happiest people have habits that raise the odds of feeling happy. Unhappy people have habits that result in less desirable feelings. It can be that simple. You can train yourself to be happy by consistently choosing happiness. If you’re not as happy as you’d like, take a look at your habits and notice what you might want to change.

Those that are happy share many qualities. Adopting these same qualities will yield positive results.

imagine happiness

imagine happiness

Habits that lead to happiness are enjoyable to implement:

  1. Optimism. Obviously, if you believe good things will happen, it’s much more likely that you’ll be happy. Expecting the worst does nothing to improve your mood! Realistically, it’s not even important to expect a positive outcome, only to believe that everything will be okay. Optimism is also a form of belief in yourself. If you believe that you can handle any outcome, you can be optimistic and have the mental freedom to be happy.
  1. Altruism. Doing things for others provides multiple benefits. You can see firsthand that you have a lot to be grateful for. You can feel good about yourself for assisting others. You have a good reason to get out of bed in the morning. You also feel useful. Make a list of at least three ways you can help others that will also fit into your schedule.
  2. Gratitude. Do you realize how many great things and people you already have in your life? By maintaining focus on the things you don’t have, you’re making yourself unhappy. Experiencing gratitude helps to create feelings of happiness. Recently a friend of mine took a 21 day gratitude challenge and literally texted me 3 things a day that made her feel grateful. The outcome was that she was uplifted, I was uplifted by her morning text and our friendship was deepened. A win all around! why not try it?
  3. An exciting future. Maximum happiness requires that you have something to look forward to. It can be that compelling vision you created at your last business event, retiring early, a luxury vacation, or a hot date on Saturday night. Have a few goals that give you a reason to be excited. This means you have to be brave enough to create really exciting goals! Create goals that are both short-term and long-term to keep you in the flow.
  4. Success. Spend some time doing things that you’re good at and that you truly love to do. It feels good to do well at something. It doesn’t have to be a competitive event. You can run a 5k or play the piano and feel great about yourself. Make of list of the things you excel at and try to spend at least a little time each day doing one of them.
  5. Resilience. This is such an important one. We all know it’s impossible to avoid challenging times. Sooner or later, something will happen that threatens your progress, success, or happiness. Resilience is the ability to continue forging ahead. Some people have a knack for making obstacles seem bigger than they really are. Others are able to maintain their composure and continue making progress. How resilient are you when it comes to overcoming your obstacles?
  6. Reasonable expectations. When your expectations are overly optimistic, you’ll routinely experience disappointment. When your expectations are consistently low, you won’t feel very optimistic. Neither is a recipe for happiness. Even the co-creative Laws of Attraction require you to meet the universe half way. You must set your intention and take necessary action.
  7. Forgiveness. How can you be happy while holding a grudge? Forgiving others quickly and easily make happiness possible. You might feel that some people don’t deserve forgiveness, but what is the alternative? Making yourself unhappy. On an energetic level you are depleting your energy and causing yourself harm by holding on to grievances in the past. I love the Hawaiian energy healing practice of Ho’o pono-pono which “puts things right again” on an energetic level so that everyone is free from the entanglement.
  8. Authenticity. Spending your time pretending to be something you’re not is a challenge to your self-esteem. Happiness is allusive if you don’t feel comfortable being yourself. Speak your truth. Allow your uniqueness to show. You will then attract people and situations that are in better alignment with who you are in the world.
  9. Presence. Thinking about the past leads to regret. Thoughts of the future lead to anxiety. Keep your mind in the present if you want to experience happiness on a regular basis.

There’s nothing complicated about happiness. Forgive others, be yourself, give of yourself, and be grateful for the things and people you already have. Having an effective set of habits will result in feeling more happiness. Expect success, dream of wonderful goals that scare you just a little and choose happiness every single day.

 

As my gift for you today: Here is a video affirmation meditation to assist you with goal setting entitled “Dreams are magic.” Dare to dream a fantastic wonderful life for yourself.

happy healing!
