Breathing on the Run

Normally, I am in the office around the Thanksgiving holiday, but this year I will be in San Diego. Please call or text if you need to get in

This time of year pulls our energy.  We want to participate in all the festivities without overwhelming our body.  Everyone knows to stay hydrated and get as much sleep as is possible.  A way to calm your nervous system down amidst all the excitement is deep breathing.

It is easy to forget.  Breathing doesn’t take long really, but it is one of those things people intend to do but tend to get at the end of the day and realize they haven’t breathed deeply all day.

I have a little trick. Tie deep breathing to another behavior. Every time you go to the bathroom during your day just take three deep breaths.  Breathing deeply is so satisfying and nurturing it can’t help but relax you.  Take your breath deeper and deeper.

If you have a child or grandchild that gets “wound up,”  play a game of deep breathing.  It won’t last long, but it doesn’t have to in order to be effective.

Vaxxed

There is a prediction that by 2025, 1 in 2 children will be autistic.  That is a heavy, heavy statistic. And it was made by an MIT graduate.

If you want to understand what the fuss is regarding autism vs. vaccines, an easily digestible way to see who says what  is the video vaxxed.  The names of researchers, the CDC specialist, and the research is given.  When you hear and understand both sides, you can decide what you want to do.

A link is up so we can watch it for free until November 8th.  However, my computer skills fail me.  So maybe everyone needs to own a copy to share.

The video is called Vaxxed and you can buy it here.  Buy a few for Christmas presents!

And I think you can see it here for free until Nov. 8th.
