Depressive thoughts?

Robyn Openshaw, aka the Green Smoothie Girl, sent an email out that speaks to exactly what I started doing mid summer 2020 that pulled me out of Lockdown depression!!

What did Robyn say?

Balance.

Yes, it’s all about Balance.

She’s been talking and writing tips for staying mentally, emotionally, and physically well for some time, see this article of Robyn’s from April 2021:

https://greensmoothiegirl.com/natural-ways-deal-with-stress/

But my problem was, I didn’t reach out to Robyn (or search her blog), reach out to anyone, or even read my own book, when I experienced DEPRESSING THOUGHTS!

Thankfully, I was able to pull out of the DEEP dark hole in mind, but it was a scary time! I didn’t even cry (as I would have years ago). But my strong WILL kicked in at some point, and I told myself, “Go for a walk.” That’s right! As simple and innocuous as that sounds, just getting off my rear and stepping outside, really was the beginning to me getting my Life back!

I started noting things I noticed in Nature. I started noting new thoughts as they dropped into my mind, as I was walking.

It was hot.

I was sweaty.

I had bugs nipping at my body.

Then, I began Communing with the Trees on our property and along the dirt street while I was walking.

After a few weeks, I had started a new diet program that came my way. And I had started some new supplements.

I found a bit of relief with each step I took.

I found a bit of relief with each step I took. Yes, I did.

But what became even more exciting was that I began to codify my thought processes and subsequent actions.

And all of that is what I pulled together to create the loose, creative framework for others to use in building their own daily ritual(s) called, Integrated Spiral™.

Because we already have all the books, videos, podcasts, tools, and such to get ourselves healthy and happy, but not the processes in place to integrate them into each day!

And the thing is, practicing simply a few Integrated Spiral methods, the first is something I call, Gratitude F-L-O-W, you can begin to experience a mood lift! I love uplifting others. Now, we can help each other. It is possible to feel better, relieve anxious feelings and find relief from the struggle. Let’s talk.

Support a small business: Sipology

What do you think of Sipology?

Do you drink tea?

I had been drinking tea daily until we moved off grid last year and found out how much power it took to boil water. So, I was intrigued and open to learning if there was any new way that I could have tea without boiling water.

Sipology tea (Photo credit: Sipology website)

A friend of my daughter does these Facebook Live videos where she makes tea, kombucha and such.

So, I reached out to my daughter’s friend and got the name of her friend who sells tea online. Meet Christina. (Click here to visit her Facebook page.)

So far, I am really enjoying room temperature or cold matcha tea! I bought several flavors of Sipology tea from Christina (her website) and am excited to say, I love them all! (They have individual packets of matcha tea in various flavors that you can try before buying the larger containers too—and I love that!)

Sipology offers herbal teas and essential oils to assist our natural health and healing lifestyle.

Tea sure brings me back to my personal state of ease and calm I had been missing since our move. Ah, just to sit and BE with a cup of tea. Yes, it’s the little things in life sometimes that bring the greatest joy.

I also really like that the flavored tea I bought only use Stevia as a sweetener, so each cup only has 5 calories! Hehe! Win-win! ❤️😉

Why buy tea (or anything else) from a small business?

No one should be worked to death so billionaires, bankers, insurance companies, lawyers, shareholders and government can profit.

Those institutions are the real pyramid schemes, not the MLMs, Direct sales, network marketing and party plan businesses.

Thus, I support small businesses. I am the change that needs to occur to shift the balance of power back to the PEOPLE.

Here’s what I do. I vote with my dollars by supporting small businesses every month, such as:

Where do you shop?

I support businesses that are co-operatives (co-ops), employee-owned, etc. and quit supporting anything (or giving to charities) where CEOs were outrageously profiting. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

Diets and Losing Weight

Dieting and Weight Loss

I’ve been using Primal Life Organics’ Hydrate daily for more than 4 months, and it (along with daily tracking of both my food/drink intake, and weight/steps), has helped me release over 30 pounds of excess weight!

Primal Life Organics Weight Loss. Naturally.

Yes, I track my food and drink intake, weight and steps walked daily, but I have continued to use Hydrate, even when I skip other supplements and believe it has contributed to my positive results!

As my readers know, I have been on the Omada weight management program for more than 6 months. I consistently log my food and water consumption, and the Omada app (connected to my iPhone Health app) tracks my steps. But, I believe the supplements I take, and variety of foods eaten, including rice, have helped me manage this journey and enabled me to stay consistent and release excess weight, naturally.

Hydrate is part of Primal Life Organics 3 part weight loss system that can be ordered separately: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/hydrate-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=4a012a6bb&_ss=r

You can order Primal Life Organics weight loss system here: https://www.primallifeorganics.com/products/weight-loss-naturally-supplement?_pos=1&_sid=d4e0c3155&_ss=r

I’ve carried excess weight on my body for over 20 years, and this is the first time I feel hopeful about my progress!

Why?

Because I feel I have all the components in place, from tracking apps, mind-body resilience programs (such as Integrated Spiral) that boost my mental stamina when I get bored or begin to move into a downward emotional spiral, etc.

I have gained hunger awareness and a good control over food cravings (yes, I still have some cravings, but I have really found a way to put them in their rightful place, and not in or ON my belly)! Haha!

I am actually having FUN challenging mySelf on this journey and allowing myself some flexibility, so it doesn’t feel so rigid! Denying myself certain foods always ended up getting me completely off track in years past. And I just don’t want to be so restrictive!

If I can be helpful or supportive to you, please reach out. I’ll encourage you, not nag—I promise.

Mood

Yes, I had gained 20 pounds in 3 months due to being stressed and depressed—mood can trigger all kinds of hormonal changes… plus, all the self sabotaging-thoughts like, “we’re all gonna die, so I’ll eat what I want” that seem to crop up when all you hear is doom and freaking gloom crap! But, thankfully, when I got my head back on straight, I released all 20 pounds in about 4.5 months.

Now, I feel so accomplished and motivated to lose the rest of the excess weight I’ve carried on my body for over 20 years! —Read more about what I’m doing here: https://sheilamurrey.net/2020/12/20/integration-diet/

USA based Wellness Shopping Club

USA based Wellness Shopping Club

Did you know there is a Wellness Shopping Club that offers over 400 non-toxic products that are made in the USA and cost less than their grocery store equivalents (even when you factor in the cost of shipping them direct to your home)?

From essential oils to food items and supplements

Side effects from using bleach

28% increase in asthma attacks from cleaning with bleach!

Now, I knew I was allergic to bleach, but I didn’t know why. And for years, my dad used to say he thought I had asthma because my mom kept our house “too clean.”

WOW!

Non-Toxic Cleaning and Body Care Products

No bleach, no ammonia, no phosphates!

What’s more is that Melaleuca’s products go beyond removing the above three chemicals (bleach, ammonia, and phosphates, and also remove abrasives, phthalates, triclosan, parabens, formaldehyde, and quaternary disinfectants (that are typically reserved for industrial and professional uses).

List of chemical ingredients Melaleuca does NOT use in their products.

So, I am really happy that Melaleuca offers cleaning products such as this botanical disinfectant:

Sol-U-Guard

Go Green

I love that Melaleuca’s products save space in our landfills and ship lighter, because many are concentrated. Obviously, because the products are non-toxic, they don’t destroy the environment.

We live a simple life. We’re living in a 10 year old RV, off-grid, with very few conveniences. We chose this life to feel closer to nature, and using natural, non-toxic products in our RV and on our bodies feels good to us. The smaller packaging of the Melaleuca items work in our small space. And the multiple ways we can use the cleaning products mean we don’t have to buy a lot of different items.

Melaleuca is a Green company.

FDA Approved

Melaleuca is a licensed pharmaceutical manufacturer. Their acetaminophen, Claritin equivalent, ibuprofen, and other over-the-counter (OTC) items are FDA approved.

Made in the USA

I love supporting folks in other countries, and I just had an online jewelry party for a company that’s Fair Trade, Threads, and bought artisan made items from India, Ecuador, and Uganda. But, I also love supporting American companies, especially ones who focus on their employees and customers by providing safe and helping products for a good value.

How about you?

UPDATE: I gave it a try for 5 months, got all my discounts and saved over $100, plus I stocked up on some of the products I loved, but I am no longer affiliated with Melaleuca.

Heard of V Shred yet?

Heard of the V Shred workout yet?

If you haven’t, it will probably show up in an ad on your timeline now. Haha! (AI algorithms! Grrr. But there’s value in everything. Hehe!) ❤️🙃🤣

Vince Sant is the personal trainer who started V Shred and does all the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercise sessions via app videos. And i am finding that having these workout videos on my iPhone makes staying consistent so easy! (Consistency has never been my strong suit, because I tend toward the artist mindset—more about that at another time.)

Sticking with the routine

I love the little reminders that pop up—until I don’t. Let’s be real. Reminders are typically intrusive. And when I am focused on work tasks, I hate being interrupted!

So, I was surprised that after my first two V Shred workout sessions, by myself, at home in our RV (tiny space), I enjoyed seeing the V Shred reminder. Yes, I am enjoying these workouts! And so far, so good with sticking with the schedule of working out and doing the exercises. Yay!

What I bought

V Shred Female Fat Loss Extreme

I bought the V Shred custom diet and the Female Fat Loss Extreme exercise bundle (for a lot less than any other program I’ve bought or seen in years). I’m thrilled with how easy the app is to access and use!

Includes diet coaching

Within 3 days of making my purchase, I was assigned a weight loss coach who sent me a 21 page diet plan (including a shopping list), and her email address, so I could ask her questions or get her support for the next 4 weeks.

My diet coach based my diet on my food likes and dislikes (from a quick form I filled out), to include something called “carb cycling.” I have been doing intermittent fasting for a few years, so the concept of carb cycling intrigued me. Too soon to tell yet, but I feel a difference—especially since I am sticking with the exercise routine (always the hardest part for me.)

Working out

Some say that working out at home isn’t motivating. Well, that has not been an issue for me using my V Shred app with hunky Vince as a trainer! (Haha!)

I don’t know if it’s Vince’s voice, or down to Earth style, but I really enjoy these workouts—and yes. I actually do the workouts, not just watch him. (Wink)

Integrating V Shred into daily life

I do my V Shred workout around midday, when I am usually feeling the most stress from work. This way, I ease stress and get a charge of energy to power through the rest of my computer tasks.

I find that taking a 15 minute exercise break is so beneficial to my mental state! Who knew?

Group motivation

I’m lucky that a Facebook friend of mine bought V Shred the same day I did, and we are each other’s accountability partner. We decided to do that on our own. But V Shred has a private Facebook group too that they invite you to join as soon as you buy.

I am not paid, nor receive any compensation for extolling the virtues of the V Shred plan. I am writing this simply because I feel I’ve found a program that’s going to give me the results I’ve been seeking for years.

UPDATE: I used my V Shred app consistently for a few weeks, stopped, and restarted 3 times. I really like a lot about this program and app, but I got bored with the repetitive videos. I got to the second month and saw new videos, but it still seemed too much (difficult) for me. My takeaway is using the concept of HIIT, using my phone’s timer, and making up my own movements/exercises. This also prompted me to restart my yoga practice. So, again, there is value in Everything. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☮️

It can’t hurt

It can’t hurt

“It can’t hurt” has been a guiding principle for me for many years. A philosophy that I have applied in many areas of my life, in particular to new strategies in business and in health matters.

Health strategies that can’t hurt

Eat more nutritious food

One of the easiest and best things each of us can do to live a healthier life, is simply to eat more nutritious food, preferably quality organic, local, fresh foods. It can’t hurt.

Move more

Another easy way to improve our health is to move more. I’m not talking about going from couch potato to marathon runner overnight, but start with 5 minutes and increase your movement (calisthenics, walking, dance, yoga, qigong, or such), everyday until you can build up to 40 minutes of movement. Measure and monitor yourself. If you ease into movement, it can’t hurt.

Meditate

Yes, the opposite of moving is stillness. Take control over your mind and body to sit quietly for a few minutes each day and focus on your breath. The new science is showing positive results, yes, physical improvements, from simply meditating. Try it. It can’t hurt.

Detoxify

A grand strategy that everyone can do is to detox. Pick your favorite detoxifying method and do it regularly. Once a year, quarterly, or monthly. We all get too many chemicals in us, via breathing, food, water, what we wear, and what we put on our skin. It can’t hurt.

Holistic health & Holism

I was telling my daughter the other day that pharmaceutical drugs always have side effects. That’s one reason I don’t take any—and if I have to, then I always make pharma meds a last resort. My health plan is to always go with the least toxic option first, because it can’t hurt.

Try some new self-care techniques. Speak loving and kind words to your body. The cells of your body are listening! And it can’t hurt.

Connection matters.

My self-care tip: When you go to the bathroom, give yourself a foot massage! Cross one leg over the other and massage your foot including your toes! Switch legs and repeat on the other side. If you work involved standing all day, I bet you’ll thank me for this tip! And if you sit all day, this re-establishes blood flow. It can’t hurt.

Hug yourself. Hug someone everyday. And put your hands together when you pray. It connects the circuits—our circuitry. It can’t hurt.

Sound and light therapies can ease tense muscles, relieve headaches, and improve many ills. Look for some of these to try. It can’t hurt.

Whenever you have a minor health issue, reach for your essential oils, Renew28, ASEA, CBD oil, or other health supplement. Sometimes I find I have the solution to whatever ails me, in my bathroom cabinets! And it doesn’t hurt to apply most of these remedies in new ways—consult your trusted holistic health team for advice if you’re unsure.

Measure & Track your progress

Measure and monitor yourself. Save some money and coach yourself. Yes, I know a personal trainer can show you the proper form and ways to exercise, but once you learn the basics, all they do is motivate you by measuring your weights and time. And you can do that for yourself. Same with personal coaches too.

Write 3 things down on a whiteboard that you want to improve about your life. Assign a number from 1-10 how you feel about each of those things. Give yourself a date by which to accomplish the change you desire. Figure out what steps you need to take to achieve those results. Break the goal into bite-size, measurable chunks, and stay focused on reaching your goal by reminding yourself why you want to change. You got this. And it can’t hurt to try it for yourself before you hire someone else to coach you. You may find that you were more capable than you thought!

Trying to lose weight? Try intermittent fasting. Also a form of detoxing, fasting for 12-16 hours a day or skipping a dinner every other day, has worked for me. And fasting can be especially wonderful for women over 40 (as it resets the metabolism). It can’t hurt to give it a try.

NEWS! I’ve finished writing my health book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!

Well, actually, I published the book nearly two years ago. But, somehow I think now is the best time for it to gain massive exposure.

I painstakingly wrote, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life, to open a door to the abundance of holistic health options that most either aren’t aware of, or might have one or more mental blocks about trying.

In the book, I talk about cancer, rebuilding the immune system, improving memory and mental clarity, easing pain, and more. I present information about healing asthma and allergies, breathing better, and reversing chronic diseases.

Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life focuses on all the options people have that their doctors may not tell them about (even if they know of them). The book provides 50+ questions you can use as a starting point to have a more thorough conversation with your doctor.
It’s about taking your power back, taking ownership and personal responsibility for your health. It’s about doing what you can naturally, using holistic health and wellness methods to live vibrantly.

I survived pharmaceuticals! My original design for t-shirts, mugs, and such, because it’s true!

Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life offers a thought bridge from the world of Western mainstream medicine to the varied and extensive ease and flow of the balancing Eastern healing arts. It is a gentle introduction to multiple natural paths to wholeness and mind-body wellness. Connecting us with spirit, it raises hope. With ease and grace, it soothes the soul.

If you suffer from chronic dis-ease, you may find this book offers you a path back to wholeness that can be fully embraced (by the mind, body, and spirit) and easily integrated into daily life.
