First & foremost spirituality:🙏🏿
Spirituality is the center of my life and my Love for the Most High. We should always try to bear these fruits so that there is no room for negativity and when trouble comes, we will be able to withstand the stress and temptations of the world.
But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith,
Meekness, Temperance: against such there is no law.
Decrease Stress in your life as much as possible😰
Check out my post on the relationship between Cortisol and Stress and why this is so very important to stop this vicious feedback cycle.
Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Notice that I said each night!!!!😴
Have a Hobby, do anything that makes you at peace with The Most High
One of my major hobbies is dance and I gain so much from teaching the art. Find something that suits you and gain healing from it.
A support group is extremely important as well:
Sometimes you’ll look right and left and find that it’s just you, The Most High, and the Ruach ha Kodesh. If we’re extremely blessed we have the support of close family and friends…be sure that those you walk with are for Yah to gain optimum support
Responsibility for your own health: Cooking/preparing your own meals & educating yourself about what changes to make, listen to your body. It’s a journey. It may help as you get started to keep a journal of what you eat and drink and the effect these things have on you.
Gardening at any level or taking care of house plants- grow what you can and eat it! Have a window garden or an inside herb garden. It doesn’t take much space or time.
Exercise and stretching:🧘🏿♀️🏋️♀️🤾🏿
What’s your actual age? Can you bend over and touch your palms to the floor? Stretching and yoga just do the body good in turning back the clock. Check out my Taptutor Youtube Channel for low/ moderate impact exercise. Stretching and higher intensity dance videos coming to you in the future!
Starting over…shopping list:🛒
Drink/Eat alkaline water & food
What’s in your kitchen? See the above link for a list of the top 15 alkaline foods. Also daily detoxification with lemon water, apple cider vinegar, and water are great ways to gently detox the body.
So you’re in the grocery store or the whole foods store…….what do you purchase??? (this list will hopefully get you started). Most of these foods detoxify, are antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.
