Reiki- Reasons to Have a Treatment

Reiki can be defined as a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by the Higher Intelligence. It connects you to universal energy, thus allowing you access to healing for yourself whenever you might need it.

Reiki brings you closer to your Higher Self, which is an important part of anyone’s spirituality. You become more spontaneous, allowing you to make smarter decisions and giving an overall feeling of entirety.

It also lowers your stress. Reiki is an outstanding tool to keeping your heart and mind tranquil, and connecting to an inner peace that will be an advantage in bothersome times.

Finally, Reiki rejuvenates the body. Throughout the day, we put natural wear and tear on our bodies. Between that and the stress, our bodies need healing. Self-healing on a physical level can help prevent sickness, and aids our injuries in healing fully.

Do Not Skip Meals to Lose Weight

Do Not Skip Meals to Lose Weight

By skipping a meal you are training your metabolism to slow down.  Your body goes into starvation mode and begins to slow down to try and store fat.  It is are bodies way of keeping us alive.

Instead of skipping a meal to lose weight, plan your meals ahead of time and pack them.  Plan on having 5-6 small meals throughout the day.  All meals should consist of lean protein to keep you full and satisfied and lots of non-starchy veggies.  Add some fruit, starches and good fat as well.  If you are trying to lose weight, go easier on the starches, fruit and fats- but do add some to keep your meals balanced.

Never skip meals!!
