Tip #1. Try This Herb To Support Your Liver
Do you know how you can support your liver? Milk thistle is a flowering herb related to the daisy and ragweed family. It is native to Mediterranean countries. It is also called Mary thistle and holy thistle. I recommend you use milk thistle for problems with the liver and gallbladder . Silymarin is the primary active ingredient of the herb. Silymarin is an antioxidant compound taken from milk thistle seeds. It supports the liver function by supporting protective glutathione levels. It also optimizes the production of bile that makes fat digestion and absorption easier on the liver. Milk thistle is particularly beneficial if your liver is damaged by industrial toxins, found in your personal care products. You can take small cup once or twice a day. It odourless and easy to consume. Try it out and incorporate this in your daily routine for improving digestion and for detoxification.

Tip #2. Create a Growth Mindset in the Workplace
Did you know that according to a new report by workplace consultancy McKinsey, up to 375 million workers worldwide will need to change roles or learn new skills by 2030. Your mindset plays a critical role in how you approach problem solving, decision making, challenges, opportunities, and personal and professional relationships, basically life! Your mindset is malleable and can be nurtured towards embracing challenges and leveraging opportunities. It takes discipline, dedication and persistence but it’s totally possible. If you are a manager and want to develop a constantly thriving vibrating culture at work then this tip is for you. Practice these five steps to develop a growth mindset in your organization. 1. Tie Performance Evaluation to Learning, Not Output. 2. Classify Both Successes and Failures as Learning Opportunities. 3. Encourage Employees to Express themselves and give feedback. 4. Invest in Employees’ Upskilling and Reskilling Efforts. 5. Support Coaching and Cross-Domain Learning. After all employees with a growth mindset believe abilities like talent and intelligence can be developed through dedication, hard work and discipline. They’re more likely to enjoy learning, seek out situations to experiment, and see failure as an opportunity to grow.

Tip #3. Get Your Body Moving With Chair Yoga
How are you moving your body throughout your workday?
It’s important to take physical and mental breaks throughout your workday. Even-though I don’t recommend it, sometimes, it’s difficult to leave the office and go for a walk. So the next best thing is chair yoga. Try these simple and quick exercises, do about 20 repetitions 3-5 times throughout your work day.

Tip #4. Pay Attention to Your Inner Voice and Self-Talk
Worrying is like a rocking chair – it give you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere. We all underestimate the power of our self-talk that inner voice usually over exaggerating making things worse than they really are because our amygdala – which is a part of our limbic brain – love to deal with fear. I recently experienced this, I was going to turn down an awesome opportunity for fear of failing and luckily I surround myself with pretty awesome people that encouraged me to take the opportunity because hey what’s the worst that can happen. Believe or not this changed my perspective and now when I hear that inner voice – I tell it to bugger off! So next time you’re faced with tough circumstances just pay attention to what you tell yourself and remind yourself that often times things are not as bad as they seem.

Tip #5. Breathe To Increase Your Energy
Are you always reaching for a coffee during your mid-afternoon energy slump? Try this breath technique instead. Bhastrika Pranayama consists basically of forced, rapid, deep breathing. We use our chest like that of the bellows, to get active inhalations and exhalations, in a very dynamic synchronised way. There are many benefits but the most important physical and mental benefits derived with the practice of Bhastrika Pranayama are: 1. Strengthens the respiratory system, while keeping the passage clear of toxins and blockages. 2. Helps to improve the blood circulation in the body. 3. This kind of dynamic breathing helps to purify the blood, by detoxifying. 4. Keeps the nasal passage clean and clear of dust and allergies. 5. Helps to reduce fat, as it is a dynamic way of breathing. 6. This dynamic way of breathing helps to boost immunity. 7. Calms the body along with the mind, reducing the stress and anxiety completely. 8. Helps to improve awareness with deep focus. 9. Improve memory, keeping the mind clear of unnecessary thoughts. 10. Reducing the gastric fire, helping digestion. Contact me if you would like an accountability partner and help you establish a Yoga and Breathwork routine.
