More and more people are waking up to the fact that while modern medicine is a wonderful invention for many health needs, it is not the answer for every kind of healing. Today I would like to get you thinking about healing properties found in teas. Teas are one of many healing tools available to you.

There are many healing properties and illness-preventative properties that have been found in teas of all kinds. For example, below is an interesting article about healing properties found in caffeine-free dandelion tea (easily found by searching on your web browser) during a study on its effects on cancer cells.

Attunement Parties for All Relaxation Occasions

By Aja Uranga-Foster, Certified Holistic Lifestyle Coach

Our most popular holistic wellness services at Mighty are one-on-one life coaching sessions. But many clients have also experienced how much fun group coaching sessions can be.

No, you won't have to share your deep, dark secrets in front of your friends or co-workers. Think of it more as getting together with your sports team to practice, or like attending a class at the gym with friends, but without all the physical movement. In an easy and fun 45 minute session, you and your group will feel the benefits of getting a 'tune-up' for your mind, body, and emotions. We call this type of service an "Attunement Party".

What kinds of groups enjoy Attunement Parties?

Fun AND Healthy: Spring Cleaning

From the Mighty Newsletter May 2013
By Aja Uranga-Foster, Certified Holistic Lifestyle Coach

The arrival of spring means longer days, more sunshine, and a time of renewal. Infuse the vibrant springtime energy into your daily activity with these tips!

1) Clear out the body's internal clutter.
The topic of bowl movements is not typically polite conversation. But your bowl's regularity isliterally how your body clears out its waste. So it is important that you are being aware of your fiber intake. And many people find a gentle daily supplement-- such as the Ayurveda herbal blend Triphala-- is helpful to assist the body in the daily cleansing process. Several clients and colleagues have reported reductions in bloating and stomach discomfort after starting to take Triphala daily. You can find Triphala at your local Whole Foods in the 'whole body' department, and at many other natural products retailers.

Fun AND Healthy: Confidence and Good Karma

From the Mighty Newsletter January 2013
By Aja Uranga-Foster, Certified Holistic Lifestyle Coach

What is your vision for this new year?

Whether your goals for this year include de-cluttering the house, getting a new job, maintaining peace in your daily life, or any other aspiration, there is one key factor that is vital to your success: Confidence! Confidence will help you to turn your goal into a reality.

But where does one find confidence? It isn't something that you can buy on a shelf or order online. Sure, a great outfit or a new haircut can help with one's confidence. But ultimately it must be earned, often over a long time-frame.

Fun AND Healthy #2: The Happy Movie

What is it that makes people happy? What makes YOU happy?

There is a great documentary released in 2011 that examines this topic in an interesting and international way. The film is called "Happy" and is available on Netflix and at thehappymovie.com/film

The run time is one hour and 15 minutes, and it is great for adults and older kids who can read sub-titles in some sections of the movie.

One take-home exercise discussed in the film is a fun one you can do at home. On one day each week, for instance every Sunday, write down 5 things you are thankful for. This simple exercise has been been shown to result in increased happiness for people who consistently do it. Try it for yourself!

Enjoy and tell your friends!

Fun AND Healthy #1: Play Time and Rest Are Key for Productivity

Have you ever found yourself lost in doing a fun activity, and you look up at the clock and hours have gone by without you noticing? Or have you ever been relaxing on the weekend and a marvelous idea or epiphany comes to you? There is real science that explains how to foster creativity, and how to gain maximum productivity.

It all has to do with 2 key things:

1) Allowing time for stimulating, fun activities periodically in the day, and 2) allowing periodic time to rest and rejuvenate the mind and body.

What does it all mean? Simply this:
1) Reward yourself each day with a short session (15-30 minutes or more) of doing something you love, be it drawing, cooking, reading, puzzles, or anything else.
2) Take at least two 10-15 breaks a day to just go for a relaxing stroll around your block or any other similar activity to give your mind a rest.

19 Things To Stop Doing In Your 20s

This is a re-post of an article from ThoughtCatalog.com. It has interesting ideas and reminders that are valuable even as we are experienced much beyond our 20s!

1. Stop placing all the blame on other people for how they interact with you. To an extent, people treat you the way you want to be treated. A lot of social behavior is cause and effect. Take responsibility for (accept) the fact that you are the only constant variable in your equation.

2. Stop being lazy by being constantly “busy.” It’s easy to be busy. It justifies never having enough time to clean, cook for yourself, go out with friends, meet new people. Realize that every time you give in to your ‘busyness,’ it’s you who’s making the decision, not the demands of your job.
