We all genuinely have a lot to do, and many of us feel pressed for time. It does seem hard to find time for yourself. But it is this so-called lack of time that creates a state of stress. Take a moment and cherish your life. Isn’t it time to explore the art of living? Realize that you can maximize for a full life; below are the tools you need to succeed!
1. Self-care is a must
Practicing self-care allows us to be there in the way we want to be for others. It helps you feel more in control, not only of your body but of your life. Self-care includes- healthy food, exercise, lifestyle changes, vitamins/supplements, and improved sleep are all your responsibility according to the concept of functional medicine. Functional medicine is treating the cause, not the symptoms, through the process of taking responsibility for your own self-care. It is amazing to realize that a lack of self-care causes so much illness! Also, lack of self-care has robbed you of creating a life you deserve. It has made you believe that you don’t matter. Take the time today to assess your life and whether or not you are practicing self-care.
2. It is your responsibility to start nurturing your entire being
To be able to apply self-care to all levels of your life, you must remember you matter! Your time matters. Your energy matters. Your mind, your body, your soul, and your spirit-matter!
Remember, just as you become addicted to unhealthy food, you become addicted to thoughts, emotions, events, and relationships not serving you. This addiction is made stronger by chemicals released in your body as you think, feel, and react to your environment.
Over time, your body becomes trapped in the stress/depression response cycle, which keeps you from the self-care your mind, body, soul, and spirit need to live your full life. Also, recognize that you are only responsible for your own happiness. This healing insight will not only nurture your entire being; it will help you foster your emotional well-being!

The 5-Step Process shows you how to use the power of the mind, positive thoughts, and an abundant mindset to apply the art of living to your life. Improve the overall wellness of your entire being, mind, body, soul, and spirit!
I have created a cheat sheet for you to follow The 5-Step Process.
Step 1 Detox: Detox your mind, body, soul, and spirit from thoughts, emotions, events, relationships, unhealthy food, negative thoughts, and bad habits!
Step 2 Releasing Emotion: Release emotions that are not serving you! Tapping Meditation, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques, allows you to connect with a process called ‘super learning.’ Which simply means you can change your subconscious mind.
Step 3 Mindset: Use an abundant mindset to free yourself from being in a chronic stress response cycle. Listen to what your body needs. Admire to your soul to know what emotions need to be processed and released from your mind. Listen to your spirit; to live your truth, your purpose, and realize your full potential!
Step 4 Reprogramming Your Mind: The secret to this Process is basking in the emotions of gratitude ahead of time. Feel all those emotions that you usually do when you have received a blessing. Once you surrender completely, you will attract what you sent out. Your thoughts will become a reality!
Step 5 Exercise/Physical Activity: Use movement to keep your energy centers (chakras) clear and moving freely. Find the little flame that hasn’t burned out. Nurture it. Believe in it. Place your hope and your faith in it. Know that something good will come from it. See the possibilities!
We need to change our expectations, release the need to take on responsibility for others, and start focusing on ourselves. Our frustrations are related to our perception, which keeps us believing we don’t have enough time…
