Sugar Season Begins
If you've been around natural health nuts, you know that we'd rather gather acorns, walnuts or pecans than commercialized corn - that turns into high fructose corn syrup! Even without scientific documentation, most of us can see the relationship between too much sugar, and long, cold, sedentary months can equal illness. Our inability to fight off common, winter-related illnesses are directly related to how strong our immune system is. And our immune system requires some pretty tough choices and discipline, starting with LESS SUGAR!
Our American diets are SAD! Add short days, little sun and the intensity of a winter storm to our psyche and we all want to reach for some comfort food! And kids? Kids just want sugar in everything! And we are up against a big, powerful industry to limit junk food, processed food, toxic food, and easy food colorfully splashed all over the media, that it's hard to win at home. Add CV_19 and watch healthy, caring restaurants shut their doors and the lines at fast food restaurants stream around the block 20-30 cars long! Your chances of getting sick might be waiting in the fast food lane.
We are experiencing the biggest TRICK ever in our lives! How do you think Young Living members are responding? Our membership is exploding. This puts pressure on our warehouses. Our out of stock item list can be frustrating, but our supply chain has glitches, too. We are growing and shifting under a new paradigm. Thankfully, we can do it with pride and grace. We're surrounded by strong, healthy thinking people! We're adopting new ideas and adapting to new ways of building our businesses, even while we're spinning at home with the challenges of shared workspace and online demands (which differ for every member of a household).
If you found yourself with a few extra pounds and inches on your body in May, check in now, before we head into another long winter. Get creative with your workout options! Indoors: yoga, pilates, aerobics, dance, spicy boxing, etc. Use the marvel of technology that you can find on cable or YouTube! Please get outdoors: walking, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, fishing, skating, etc. It takes less time to get your heart rate up and burn calories when it's cold! And above all else, learn how to create healthy, sugarless treats!
