Association of Skipping Breakfast With Cardiovascular and All-Cause Mortality

I received a recent article summarizing information we already know, which is we should all eat breakfast. The authors propose that “breaking the fast” helps prevent the body from going into a stress state. I often advise patients that even if you are busy, a smoothie or yogurt will get soemthing into your body.

Today’s inspiration from Reiki Ray’s is one of my favorites…essential oils! The post recommends using rose of geranium. In an upcoming post, I’ll give more information on essential oils and pregnancy, of which rose is a good choice for pregnant women. I like to add a drop of rose my hand lotion for a mood lifter. My Monday favorites are usually in the citrus families, being lemon or orange.

Believe in yourself

The theme of the May calender from Reiki Ray’s is about self care. Self care is serious business. When we’re poor ourselves last we simply won’t be away our best.

I end up discussing this topic a lot while taking care of patients. Unfortunately, most of the diseases I treat are preventable and reversible, including Diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. A patient dealing with one of these needs to have a positive outlook on life and themselves in order to heal.

One way I recharge my self belief is to think of my own victories. They may be small, like connecting with a sick patient, or big, like finishing school. Tap into that feeling, not so much the end result, but the feeling on the way to the victory. Maybe that bright place can return to your heart today.

Be Your Own Best Friend

Todays Reiki Ray’s Inspiration is to be your own best friend. We all hope to have someone to confide in, but in tough times, being able to be there for yourself can be as important as being there for others.

Maybe you can treat yourself to a nice lunch, or don’t be hard on yourself, or maybe take credit for something your proud of.
