Surfing in My Living Room – My New Normal of Mind Body Care Connection by Lois Kramer-Perez CHt

I have had lots of conversations with friends, family, clients, and colleagues regarding the current state of our world during this COVID-19 situation. The emotions vary from anger, frustration to relief and a new sense of peace.


While you cannot control what is happening around you, you can control your choices and how you respond rather than react.

Create your new normal with healthy choices – fill yourself up with beneficial energy.

I have had many conversations where people are finding time to nourish themselves with activities they used to just think about, such as:  regular meditation, reading time, exercise and creative time: art, writing, music, dance.

What gift have you given to yourself during these past few months?

Take the good stuff with you! Leave the gunk behind!

I am not interested much in traditional exercise – but I am finding I sit way too much at my desk typing and zooming!  I took out my “simply fit board” which I bought after watching an episode of Shark Tank and proceeded to twist my way to surfing the waves of Hawaii! Not only did I get a good physical work out, my imagination had fun too!
I will be taking my “simply fit board” out of my isolation time with me. 

What beneficial new behavior will you take to your new way of living?

Is there something else you find you want to leave behind?

Make a plan – when you are ready to let go of something – replace it something you choose, otherwise a random choice will be made for you.

Are you putting the needs of others ahead of your own, finding your needs moving further away from the top of your list?  What would happen if you took some time for yourself?

What would happen if you said to your family:
“I am going to take some time for me, see you in 1 hour.”?  

Make a plan, take some time for yourself. Notice how good it feels to feel good.

Your mind body connection helps you care for yourself as you begin noticing how your body is talking to you. What is happening in your mind is directly connected to your body. Your thoughts are constantly sending messages to your body with information. These messages can cause you to; clench your jaws, tighten your shoulders, stiffen your back or cramp your legs, just to name a few. These messages are creating patterns which your body become familiar expressing on automatic pilot. Change your reaction to response when you notice the messages your body is speaking.

Choose to redirect your attention on a regular basis, by becoming aware of your body, noticing how it feels. You will notice when your shoulders are moving up into your ears and when your jaw begins to clench. You know exactly what to do! Take a smiling breath and release that built up tension.

Here are a few simple things to include in your day:
Set your intention for the day before you get out of bed stretch like a cat taking a few deep breaths, smiling as you connect with your intention.

 –Notice how your body feels, set a parameter for noticing how it feels when you are relaxed, focused, and clear, so you can redirect your attention once you notice a physical change.

 –Take two deep breaths every hour, after completing a task, a series of phone calls or as you notice your body tensing. Focus on 2 deep belly breaths, smile, and exhale stress, stiffness, and stress.

Stand up and move, especially when you are sitting for long periods of time. March in place for 20 steps with your arms swinging.

 –Drink lots of fresh pure water, this not only keeps you hydrated, but will nudge your bodies to get up every so often.

Prior to Chinese New Year’s Day – Through New Years Eve January 27, 2017

  1. Clear out and de-clutter making room for new opportunities coming our way. A drawer, a shelf, a room, our wallet/purse, every little bit makes room for a lot more.
  2. Clean ~ Prepare for a fresh start. Through clear windows with all the light bulbs working, all opportunity and wisdom is clear for us to “see.” Our beauty is reflected in our mirrors.
    Check out your front door, get out the WD40 if the lock sticks. What is going on at the entrance? make it inviting – time for a new welcome mat!
  3. Stock the fridge and cupboards with an abundance of fresh nutritious foods. Having enough for leftovers after New Year’s Day assures us abundance all throughout the New Year.

A festive colorful fruit bowl connects our intention to abundance:
Oranges and tangerines represent money and prosperity
Apples symbolize good health and safety
Pineapples symbolize recognition and promotion
Grapes symbolize success and abundance
Feast on noodles; uncut they represent long lif

3. Bring in the Blooms! Live blooming flowers represent rebirth, new growth, new beginnings.

4. Strut Your Stuff!  Our appearance, actions and attitudes set the tone for the New Year. Prepare to strut your stuff ~ indulge in a manicure, pedicure, massage, new hair style; any activity to set your intention for the year to come.

On Chinese New Year’s Day – Saturday January 28, 2017 

  1. The first words we speak should be sweet and filled with love to insure each day will be such. Breathe in gratitude as we will insure much to continue to be grateful through out the year.
  2. The first thing we eat should be sweet, to ensure we will have only sweetness filling up all days of the New Year. Mandarin Oranges are the sweetness of choice
  3. Wear new clothes; include something red, whether it is seen or unseen – it is still auspicious!
  4.  Enjoy the day! As all the preparation has been completed, there are no chores to be done on New Year’s Day to ensure we will not be burdened with hard work this year. We will prosper smooth and easy. Should you find that there is work to be done on New Year’s Day ~ choose the activities that bring the greatest abundance, engage with the most positive activities and clients
