Surviving Holiday Stress

We all want to enjoy our friends and families over the holidays, right? Yet how many of us stress out trying to get everything done from decorating to present buying while still maintaining our businesses or jobs at an acceptable level?

If you have expectations of a perfect, picturesque holiday then you are bound to be disappointed. The major cause of this stress is unrealistic expectations. As the holidays approach, we set expectations of how it should be.

For the whole article, go to ttp://joanlubar.com/surviving-holiday-stress

Stress Tips   

*  Turn off the news!  – When you stop watching and listening, see how much calmer you are – do you have to know about the latest accident or complaint?

*  Learn deep breathing, as in yoga – it slows down your heart rate and calms you. Think, “I am …. peace” as you breathe in and out deeply.    

Stay away from sugar – Amazing how something so yummy can be so bad for you! It lowers your immune system, makes you feel bloated and even depressed, opens you to allergy responses more readily, and is inflammatory!  This is NOT impossible, just do it in between parties and get togethers.

Choose more fresh fruits and vegetables – Choose what you eat wisely whenever possible, especially when you have no party plans.    

Find an exercise you love – Find one you love and do it as often as possible. A great idea is to listen to Christmas or other music and dance to it. You will feel great!!

*  Add food based supplements, especially ones that help you get back in balance and calm your nerves. I use Shaklee B-complex and Stress Relief Complex plus Osteomatrix, a calcium combination to soothe me. B-complex is especially good to stop a hangover!!

* Find new adventures and activities to do with friends and family that are not expensive or free – board games, volunteering, joining friends for a pot luck brunch, helping others decorate or cook

* Make your workspace and workplace more fun to be in – decorate, encourage group lunches, say “Hi” and “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” more often, especially to those you don’t know.

While these are just a few tips, there are many more to not only make the holidays more fun, but also to prevent weight gain and boost your spirit.

Let me make this easier for you! If you like what you read here and are in the Portland area and want me to “de-stress” your office or you, please contact me.

Food and Drink Tip Don’t want that awful hangover in the morning after a holiday party?  Take B-Complex (Shaklee’s works fast and is balanced and whole food based) before bed (if you can remember to..) and in the morning.  Helps you feel better fast!

My Amazing Recovery from an Unintentioned Fall!

OMG – I forgot to place my computer bag under the table at Kathleen Gage’s workshop last week, got up to get coffee and SPLAT!!  I landed on the right side of my leg and twisted my foot under heels that I should not have been wearing.

Embarrassing?  Oh, YES!  Painful?  DOUBLE YES!!!  Most of the day was spent at the workshop with ice on my propped up leg.  To leave at the end I had some wonderful help from 2 lovely participants and I went on to Beaverton to my healing session with Master Soul.

Could that timing have been better?  Absolutely not!  I got home, took an Epsom Salts bath, added my trusty Shaklee nutrition and by the end of the evening – NO LEG PAIN!!!  The next morning the only thing still hurting was my foot and ankle, which I wrapped, then moved on to more nutritional help.  AGAIN, by the end of the day, NO PAIN at all!!!  By the end of the week I went camping and was walking fine!

I am writing this, not just to share how quickly I recovered but to also share the new Shaklee Performance products, perfect for just such a mishap but also to keep all of us from those miserable aches and pains after workout.  Check out the video and connect with me if  you want to learn more:

 

Preventing the Causes of Aging and Protecting our Cells

Q: What are some key causes of aging and what you can tell us about YOUTH Skin Care and how it helps?

What comes to mind is the science behind YOUTH; one of the key aspects is that it’s formulated to address the key causes of aging. Our skin is constantly under assault from the environment, and free radical damage accelerates aging of our skin. So to be effective you have to have a technology that protects the skin against those assaults. But in addition, a lot of the latest anti-aging science revolves around the skin’s regenerative processes. When you look deeper, our skin produces collagen and elastin; these are proteins in the skin that keep our skin supple, keep it firm, and prevent wrinkles from forming. But after the age of 20 our skin produces less collagen and elastin every year, and over the course of a lifetime that has a dramatic impact on our skin. Up to 80 percent of the thickness of our skin is lost as we age. So if there is a way to intervene in that loss as we age, we have a really effective scientific approach—and we did just that.

The YOUTH System

 A first-to-market aspect of our YOUTH science is that it targets the key youth proteins in the skin, only recently discovered in the world of anti-aging research, that help signal cells to keep producing more collagen and elastin. The Lotus Japonicus extract, a key botanical ingredient in our Youth Complex, is a first-to-market technology from the standpoint that it targets those key proteins. That helps signal the cells to keep producing more collagen and elastin, and that’s a key first with our science.

Another breakthrough aspect of YOUTH is on the protection side. People who are familiar with Vivix® know that one of the key ingredients is the muscadine grape, which works at the cellular level in our body to help prevent cellular aging. So we adapted the muscadine grape extract for its use in skin care applications. What our testing showed was that it also works in our skin cells to protect cells at the DNA level which is so critical because the DNA is like the control center of the cell. If your DNA is damaged it doesn’t function properly, and you start to see signs of aging. If you can protect that DNA from damage from the environment, that’s the best protection you can give your skin, and our muscadine grape polyphenol blend helps do just that in skin cells.

YOUTH Skin Care – Revolutionary

Have you ever wondered how safe the products are that you put on your skin?  Do all of those “anti-aging” products actually work? Is purity and science behind the products you use important?

YOUTH Skin Care was researched for 8 years in order to bring us products that not only work but also don’t have over 2500 of those ingredients that are shown not to be safe.

Here is some Q&A that helps us understand the “Why?” we might want to change brands and have fabulous results!  I will be doing several blogs with answers to different questions we all have. First let’s start with:

Q: How is this YOUTH skin care line different from others in the market?

Are you part of a growing trend to seek more natural beauty products?
The challenge to meet that consumer need is that a product claim to be all natural may be valid  but they often don’t really deliver products that truly work. The flip side of that is many companies deliver products that work but they are nowhere near natural and they rely on many questionable chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.

So you have this mutually exclusive space in the market today where you’re either free of potentially harmful chemicals or you deliver high performance.

Enter YOUTH!

We’ve found that sweet spot where we’ve bridged the gap. With YOUTH, we have products that we’ve clinically demonstrated deliver amazing results without 2500 ingredients that are potentially harmful.

When you look at our claims versus other companies’ out there today, YOUTH truly delivers benefits above and beyond what the competitors are even claiming. But we didn’t have to rely on potentially harmful chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.

Acid Reflux – Oh NO!!

Years ago my former husband John had surgery because of a bleeding ulcer.  Afterwards the gastroenterologist told him he would be on Protonics for the rest of his life.  The internist agreed.

Just yesterday, speaking with 4 other women, Acid Reflux issues came up with 3 of them!!!  I thought this blog was a perfect subject, as a result.

John was off the medicine in 2 weeks!!  We did our research and also spoke with Dr. Richard Brouse.  Here is a current article by him on Acid Reflux.  May it help anyone suffering.  Call me for more information

Interview on Portland Community TV: Joan Lubar – Rock & Roll at Any Age!

What would it look like if you could feel fit and fabulous whether you are 40, 50, 60, 70 or beyond?

How many people begin their decline into fear of aging, attributing every ache and pain to getting older, even at age 40?  Have you seen the “Over the Hill” birthday decorations and favors?  People use these for those having birthdays over 40!!   People – get REAL!!!!

Much of the aches and pains are what I like to call “accelerated aging” because we haven’t taken the best of care of our attitudes and our bodies.  Does that mean you have done something wrong to be where you are today?  No, for most it is not knowing the options, unfortunate circumstances or not taking responsibility for our health.

Here is my interview on Portland Community TV that expresses my personal views and beliefs that have helped me feel and look as young as I do.  The results are in my book, Rock & Roll at Any Age, a rebellious look at life, health & spiritual wisdom from the Sassy Sage.  Please feel free to comment – I would love your feedback!!
