Tip #1: STOP Eating These Bad Oils – NOW!

STOP eating these oils they are worse than smoking? Stop feeding these oils to your kids. And check the labels because these are everywhere! Do you know what causes more inflammation in your body, more than sugar and more than processed Carbohydrates? Vegetable oils like your

❌ Canola Oil

❌ Corn Oil

❌ Cottonseed Oils

❌ Soybean Oil

❌ Grapeseed Oils

❌ Rice bran Oils

Why? because they are unstable when commercially processed, they are adulterated and damaged causing them to go rancid. So, they are already rancid before you consume them. And then we use them as cooking oils when we heat these oils, we are causing further oxidization creating inflammation and damaging your cells for up to 12 months.

Studies show that up to 20% of oil, after processing are toxic metabolites that cause inflammation, damage and change our behaviours. You can have unadulterated seed oils but they have to be cold pressed. However, it must definitely say cold pressed and be in a dark glass bottle and it is usually four times costlier.

The alternative healthy fats most recommended are my favourite:

✅ Olive oil

✅ Avocado oil

✅ Grass fed organic butter & ghee

✅ Coconut oil 

Coconut oil it the most stable of them all to cook with, because it contains saturated fats, which are stable fats that do not get damaged by heat. Heating can kill any oil but with normal cooking, but coconut oil stands up very well. It’s also very good for the brain because of the short and medium chain fatty acids.

Tip #2: 5 Ways To Maximize Your Team’s Potential

For most employees, while compensation is important, there’s more to effective talent management than paying a high salary.  In fact, 94% of employees would stay with an organization that invested in their career development. Cultivating and harnessing employee potential through genuine and transparent interactions in the workplace has been shown to benefit both the employer and the employee in the long run.

There are 5 proven ways to maximize your team’s potential.

1️. Be a good mentor to your employees

2️. Give them your ears

3️. Get them to help you solve hard problems. Doing this would help launch them out of their comfort zones and bring out hidden potentials they didn’t realize they had in the first place.

4️. Remind them of the bigger picture. When they see the big picture, life has a special kind of energy and meaning. Focus on establishing that. Become clear about what you want them to achieve and why.

5️. Help them manage their time. If we have zero-time management skills, 15-minute tasks can turn into 45 minutes, or even longer. Share a time management tip with your team and recognize those who implement them.

I invite you to focus your energy on executing these ideas so you can maximize your team’s potential every day.

Tip #3: Breathe In Ease For Stress Busting

Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? I

I invite you to give this variation of a HeartMath technique a try when you’re feeling stressed.

1️. Acknowledge your feelings as soon as you sense stress.

2️. Pause what you’re doing, focus on your heart, and breathe in the attitude of ease. Imagine with each breath that you are drawing in feelings of calm.

3️. Once you activate your ease and regain your energetic poise, breathe this feeling for a while longer to help anchor it in. After doing this exercise for a day or two, your intuition will start to automatically cue you up when stress persists.

Tip #4: Harness The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

Do you want to know how you can apply the powers of your subconscious mind to any problem or to help you live a life of your dreams?

Every thought is a cause, and every condition is an effect! Joseph Murphy, author of “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” invites us to consider our mind as a garden and we are the gardeners.

We plant seeds of thoughts in our subconscious mind all day long, often unaware because of our habitual thinking. He argues that what we sow in our subconscious mind, we shall reap in our body and environment.

So begin now to sow thoughts of health, happiness, prosperity, career progression and accept them fully in your conscious mind.

Continue to plant these wonderful seeds of thought in the garden of your mind and you will reap a glorious harvest.

When you begin to control your thought processes, you can apply the powers of your subconscious to any problem or difficulty. You will be consciously connecting with the infinite power and law that governs all things.

I challenge you to create or choose an affirmation that resonates with you.

Make it the last thing you say before bed and the first thing you say in the morning before getting out of bed and watch the magic happen!

Tip #5: Be Present Through Breath Awareness

Become an observer of your breath so you stay connected to the present moment.

Place one hand on your chest and one hand on your belly. Notice what is moving more for you is it your chest – then that means that you’re shallow breathing.

Ideally, we want to extend our bellies like a balloon on the exhale, so engaging our diaphragm, this powerful detoxifying muscle under our abdominals.

Then with each exhale pull your belly button towards your spine.

Strengthen this powerful muscle with this simple breath awareness exercise as often as you can throughout the day.
