How are your resiliency skills?

How are your resiliency skills?

Resilience is one of my favorite topics. Mostly because of the experiences I’ve learned, grown from and now have as skill sets. Here’s a few pointers I can share with you.  

Resilience in today’s growing and changing world is a necessary skill to have.  Many of the qualities making up resilience can be developed and strengthened, which can improve your ability to deal with life’s setbacks.

Resilient people understand life is full of challenges.  While these challenges arise, resilient people stay open, flexible and willing to adapt to change. Resiliency is developed as one is aware of situations, their own emotional reactions and the behavior of those around them. Awares in these perspectives gives resilient people the opportunity to maintain control of the situation and problem solving/critical thinking, aka, thinking of a new way to tackle the problem. 

Here are qualities of Resilient People:

  1. Sense of control.  Resilient people believe their actions have a direct correlation to the outcome.  This gives resilient people the capability to know trust and feel they have power in their choices that affect their situation, their ability to cope and their future. 
  2. Problem Solving Skills. When crisis emerges, or challenges appear, resilient people are able to see the solution, put a plan in place and act out, follow through on the plan.  Resiliency is the skill to rationality and calmly look at the problem and envision a successful outcome. 
  3. Strong Social Connection. When you’re dealing with a challenge having a strong social network is essential.  Talking about the challenges you are facing can be an excellent way to gain perspective, look for new solutions, or simply express your emotions.
  4. Identifying as a survivor, not a victim.  When dealing with any potential crisis, it is essential to view yourself as a survivor or problem solver. Avoid thinking like a victim of circumstance, and escalating problems. Instead, look for those ways to resolve the problem. While the situation may be unavoidable, you can still stay focused on a positive outcome.
  5. Being able to ask for help.  While being resourceful is an important part of resilience, it is also essential to know when to ask for help. During a crisis, people can benefit from the help of psychologists and counselors specially trained to deal with crisis situations. There are many options of resources to help you maintain a sense of focus and presence in times of challenge.

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your endocrine system is made up of glands found throughout the body. These glands, which produce hormones, send hormones into the bloodstream or into the fluid around cells, and receptors to be distributed among organs and tissues, and “programmed” to respond to the hormones. Essentially 

Glutathione and your body- the Cellular Level of You.

Glutathione and your body- the Cellular Level of You.

Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells made up of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. One unique thing about glutathione is that the body is able to make it in the liver, which is not true of most antioxidants.

Glutathione has many important functions, including:

  • making DNA, the building blocks of proteins and cells
  • supporting immune function
  • forming sperm cells
  • breaking down some free radicals
  • helping certain enzymes function
  • regenerating vitamins C and E
  • transporting mercury out of the brain
  • helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fats
  • assisting regular cell death (a process known as apoptosis)

Glutathione levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress. Its levels also decline with age.

Here are 4 Ways Glutathione supports your body and your overall health

1. May reduce respiratory disease symptoms

N-acetylcysteine is a medication used to treat conditions such as asthma and cystic fibrosis. As an inhalant, it helps to thin mucus and make it less paste-like. It also reduces inflammation. N-acetylcysteine is byproduct of glutathione

2. Reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Glutathione has been shown to improve protein, enzyme, and bilirubin levels in the blood of individuals with alcoholic and nonalcoholic chronic fatty liver disease. Cell death in the liver may increase by a deficiency in antioxidants, including glutathione. The livers main function is to detoxify the blood.

3. Reduces oxidative stress

Oxidative stress occurs with the production of free radicals and the body’s inability to fight them off. Too-high levels of oxidative stress may be a precursor to multiple diseases. These include diabetes, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. Glutathione helps to reduce the impact of oxidative stress, in turn, reduce disease. It also stated that elevated glutathione levels raised antioxidant levels and resistance to oxidative stress in cancer cells.

4. May help fight against autoimmune disease

Autoimmune diseases attack the mitochondria, the power house of the cell, in specific cells. Glutathione works to protect cell mitochondria by eliminating free radicals. The chronic inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases increases oxidative stress. Glutathione helps reduce oxidative stress by either stimulating or reducing the body’s immunological response.

Glutathione is part of a healthy immune system and supports the body’s detoxification process. Order today and save 15% on your first order.
