Finding Joy and Being Grateful

Finding Joy and Being Grateful

January 7, 2021

As the new year begins and the holiday season comes to an end, many people abandon the focus on gratitude they had during the holidays, but being grateful is important all year, and can even potentially have some health benefits. Focusing on what you have instead of what you are lacking can be a great way to improve your mood and general outlook on life, as well as decrease stress levels. Lower stress levels may lead to a lower risk of stroke and heart attacks, along with many other potential health benefits. Let’s choose to find joy and practice being grateful throughout this entire year.

Products Mentioned in Today’s Show

Acetyl L-Carnitine – Research on this acetylated derivative of L-carnitine has centered largely on its role in maintaining brain and nerve function during aging. The acetyl group can serve as a metabolic source of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while the L-carnitine component carries fatty acids into mitochondria of nerve, heart, and muscle cells for use in energy production. Other actions benefit membrane stability, production of nerve growth factor, and cerebral blood flow.

L-Theanine – L-theanine, a unique amino acid compound found in green tea, is noted for its calming benefits. Studies show it can stimulate alpha brain wave activity and promote relaxation without drowsiness.

Beauty From The Inside

Did you know that beauty on the outside starts with beauty on the inside? There are natural ways you can achieve this. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Use Probiotics – they are tied to improved immunity, hormonal control, appetite regulation and energy levels. They can help your nervous system deal with toxins like parasites, viruses, yeast and bad bacteria
  • Quality Omega-3 Supplement – Omega-3’s are loaded with healthy fatty acids that help keep skin moisturized and elastic. They also help regulate hormone function, nervous system health and immune function
  • Collagen protein is one of the best natural skin care supplements available today. Collagen helps build healthy skin cells and helps keep youthful elasticity, softness and firmness.
  • Drink plenty of water because water makes up about 70 percent of your body and a very large portion of your skin.
  • Get good sleep and lower your stress – you should know that “beauty sleep” is more than just a silly saying. A good night’s sleep is truly where the magic happens!
