1 Simple Thing Actions

Episode 286: IGNITE Your Inner Healer

1 Simple Thing Action:
Take one minute a day, in a quiet space, and think of a time when you were the happiest and healthiest you’ve ever been, and allow all of your senses to experience that moment. It has been scientifically proven to charge our immune system up to 800x more than how we normally go about our day. That’s just a minute of holding a moment when we were happy and felt good.

Episode 287: ENERGIZE Your Lymph System

1 Simple Thing Action:
Get out, go for a walk, and take some deep breaths. Also, after taking a shower, take your towel and rub your skin vigorously as you are drying yourself. You’ll feel energized, awake, and feeling great.

Episode 288: BALANCE Your Acid & Alkaline

1 Simple Thing Action:
Drinking plenty of water helps our alkaline balance.

Episode 289: I Know What To Do. I Just Can’t Do It!

1 Simple Thing Action:
Remind and encourage yourself by saying these simple phrases:

“Today I am going to step into taking care of myself.”

“Today I am making myself the priority in my life.” and

“Today I am going to eat one MORE protein serving and one LESS carb serving than I did yesterday.”

CNN article: How to use the placebo effect to have a better day

  1. One group of students was told they’d gotten above-average sleep; the other, that they’d gotten below-average sleep. Then both groups were given a test. Here’s the kicker: Regardless of how well the students actually slept, those who were told they got quality sleep performed better than those who were told they slept badly.
    1. Telling yourself that you feel rested — rather than whining about how tired you are — may actually make for a more productive day. Lying to yourself for the win!
  2. An unusual study on placebo effect and fitness found that people who were told they were getting exercise in their daily lives — in this case, a group of hotel maids — actually became healthier without increasing their activity outside their jobs. In one month, the subjects lost an average of two pounds, lowered their blood pressure, and improved their body fat percentages.
    1. Make a list of the ways you are getting exercise in your daily life. It may be more than you think. Also, choose a lifestyle that gets you more natural exercise. Take stairs instead of elevator, park farther away from the store, etc.
  3. Research shows that thinking positively, which is an extension of the placebo effect, is related to a whole host of good health outcomes. Practicing optimism — rather than focusing on the negatives — does have the power to make you feel better on a daily basis.
    1. One technique that can help: Create an optimistic collage. Pull together photos that give you something to look forward to (say, pictures of your dream vacation spot). Hang them near the bathroom mirror or use them as your computer screen saver so that you see them several times a day.
  4. The opposite is also true. There is something called the nocebo effect. Negative suggestions made can actually make us worse.
    1. We ARE telling ourselves something. There is a constant conversation going on in our minds. We might as well say something positive instead of the negative.
    2. Make a list of the negative things we’re telling ourselves. I’m not good enough. I’m not smart enough. I don’t have enough. Begin to replace those with positive thoughts to combat them. Put them on the mirror. Make a list.
    3. I started doing this, and noticed immediate small changes in my behavior. You may not believe it at first. It may feel phony. Its ok…just keep feeding those positive messages.
