Here are the show notes:

-Dr. Emoto was a Japanese scientist and researcher who authored several books on the miracle of water. He found that water can restructure itself into both beautiful and ugly water crystal shapes based on whether they were exposed to positive or negative words, as well as different types of music.
-Because we are 55-70% water (depending on age) the words that are spoken over ourselves and the words we tell ourselves can likewise have a positive or negative effect on our health and appearance as well as the way we feel.
-“Water’s role is to transport vibration energy to the body.”
-“Negative words have an immediate, disastrous effect on (water) crystals. Think twice before exposing yourself to negative thoughts.”
-“Even saying ‘exhaustion’ makes the water within your body look worn and withered. If you find yourself saying this out of habit, try shifting your thinking.”
-Chanson hired a team of Swiss researchers to do scientific studies on our water using the same frozen crystal method as Dr. Emoto and the results are amazing.

9 Ways to De-Stress Naturally

Do you lay awake at night letting worry eat away at you, or run around all day feeling highly stressed?

When we experience feelings of anger, stress, worry, guilt,  anxiety and the like we flood our body with acids that damage our cells. In fact, Dr. Robert O. Young has found that negative emotions can have a more detrimental impact on the blood than eating even the worst of foods.

Stress can manifest physically and show up as tension, headaches, back pain, lack of concentration and lack of productivity. It weakens our immune system and makes us more susceptible to heart disease.

Here are some ways that you can de-stress naturally:

1. Develop an Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude can have such a powerful impact on our mood and way of thinking and should be felt on a continuous basis–not just once every November. Aim to take a moment each day to reflect on at least one thing you are grateful for. Feeling stressed about your job? Be grateful that you have one. Worried about your daughter’s grades? Be grateful that she is getting an education.

2. Learn to Forgive and Forget

When we hold onto feelings of unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, we are the ones who suffer. Letting go is not always easy, but can feel like a weight being lifted off of your shoulders. Who in your life do you need to forgive? What steps can you take today to get closer to forgiveness?

3. Become an Optimist

Pessimists often refer to themselves as “realists” and snub optimists, believing that they are living in a fantasyland and can’t possibly be that happy and naive. But we get what we put out into the world according to the law of attraction, so focusing on what you want instead of what you don’t want is the key. Remember, the only difference between a weed and a flower is a judgement. Even if you’ve lived your entire life as a pessimist, it’s never to late to change your way of thinking and feeling and experience growth.

4. Laugh a Little (Or A Lot)

We’ve all heard that laughter is the best medicine and that watching funny movies is a good way to de-stress. But did you know that laughter is powerful enough to even reverse diseases like cancer? Here are some other benefits of laughter:

  • Improves mood, memory & sleep
  • Boosts problem-solving ability and creativity
  • Reduces anxiety and depression
  • Bolsters immune system
  • Raises pain tolerance

5. Get Moving

Exercise has long been linked to stress relief. Some of the easiest and best forms of exercising for relaxation are walking, stretching and yoga.

6. Just Breathe

There are many breathing exercises that you can try when you feel stressed or anxious and need to calm down. Inhale deeply and focus on your desired outcome or just the simple fact that you are filling your lungs with beneficial oxygen. Meditation is also very healing.

7. Cut the Crap

Try reducing sugar, caffeine, alcohol and simple carbohydrates from your diet in order to get back to a healthy balance. Processing these foods is very taxing on the body.

8. Connect with Nature

Something as simple as looking out the window when you are stressed or putting a vase of fresh flowers on your desk or kitchen table can do wonders to calm and relax you. If you have time to go for a hike or even just soak up a few minutes of direct sunlight and breathe fresh air you will feel revitalized.

9. Stay Hydrated

We are 70% water and when we are dehydrated everything from our mental focus to our energy levels is depleted. Because stress wears on our physical as well as mental body, staying hydrated can play a huge part in boosting mood and helping us to not run out of steam. Aim to drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily, and drink filtered ionized alkaline water for best health.
