New Year Tips For A Healthy & Green 2021

New Beginnings Bridge Old Endings
I think of holidays as bridges. As the river of time rapidly flows, holidays can bridge happy memories of the past to future moments of joy. Although 2020 was a very difficult year, it may be helpful to edit our memories. It is healthier to remember your moments of happiness and joy rather than your negative ones. This New Year remember that gratitude and thankfulness are the roads to physical and emotional healing and wellbeing. “Thank You” is the best gift anyone can give. It expresses gratitude, humility, and understanding. We thank you all and we hope this New Year becomes your bridge too much happiness and many sweet new memories.

Believe in 2021
Why do you believe what you do? Is it your experience? Or were you told? Tomorrow can be your new highest potential. Remember, all is well. Your reality is all about how you structure it. Let that understanding lead the way. Start building the foundation. Be disciplined. Six months in, revisit your belief about what you want to do, be or have. How close you’ve come to realizing it. Continue until you prove it to yourself. Until you have installed a new better belief. Practice. Repeat this in all aspects of your life throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond. Enjoy!

Practice Mindfulness Every Day
Ninety five percent of the mind is on autopilot filled with patterns and beliefs you are not aware of. These patterns create dysfunction and they negatively impact your health. 

Practice staying in the present moment. Worrying about the future and regrets about the past, neither of which you can control, keeps you from enjoying today.  

Start each day with time for you to reset your mind. Breathe, create positive feelings, imagine how you want your life to look and feel. Practice daily and you will transform your life! Have a Healthy New Year! Dr. Amy Davis M.D. Crossing Back To Health, 636-778-9158. www.crossingbacktohealth.com

Better Hearing In The New Year
Have you had your hearing or hearing aids checked against your target score recently? If you have an untreated hearing loss, you are up to five times more likely of developing a cognitive issue like Dementia or Alzheimer’s according to the most recent medical research. Make a commitment this New Year to take control and care of your hearing health. It can be a “New Year, New You!” Make the commitment to schedule your hearing test or hearing aid target score verification today go to www.miracle-ear.com/onlinebooking or call (314) 200-0888.

Think About Setting a New Type of Resolution
I would like to encourage everyone to consider adopting a different type of goal this year. This is the goal of shedding the “limiting labels” that you place on yourself. “I’m not thin enough… I’m not pretty enough… I’m not successful enough… I’m not smart enough”, are some that are most commonly adopted. As someone who used to talk this way to myself as well, I also understand that the thought of shedding these internal labels can seem nearly impossible. However, some simple behavioral therapy techniques are all that is needed. Then, as the limiting labels begin to melt away and you begin to remove your self-imposed roadblocks, inertia will take over in many areas and you can achieve your self-designed life.

Take Action for the Animals
Will 2021 be the year the plight of animals is eased because of YOU? Volunteer at an animal shelter! Whether you are motivated because of sadness regarding conditions animals face, an inspiring story of a rescue or anger resulting from an abuse case, take action. Some shrug the stories off, some say “what a shame” and some shed a tear for the suffering but YOU stepped forward and decided to ACT, to HELP, to MAKE A DIFFERENCE! The animals will benefit because you gave your time, your most precious commodity. May you always know the joy of caring and sharing!

Spend Time in Nature & Be Creative
A prescription for health and happiness is to spend time in nature, in the garden and creative pursuits. Absorb the healing and enlivening energy of nature by walking, working or spending quiet time surrounded nature’s beauty. A walk park can be done year round. We are blessed with wonderful parks and gardens nearly or a short drive away. Learn to know them and love them in all seasons. Find your inner truth and creative spirit with journaling and creating simple art. Mandala making and journaling is a perfect way. Linda Wiggen Kraft is a landscape designer who creates holistic and sustainable gardens, a mandala artist and creativity workshop leader.

Do Things Differently For Change To Happen
Do you desire change in your life? What actions are you setting your intention to make? If we want different results, we have to do things differently! I would like to suggest that you look inward. We cannot change other people, only ourselves. We need to Be the change we desire. Maybe you are not sick, but are you enjoying “optimum” health? Why not schedule a thermography screening to monitor your health from a Holistic, Preventive perspective? Learn the self-help tools of meditation, self-hypnosis and imagery to be your emotional best and enjoy life the way you really desire.

Plant Perennials
Perennials cost more up front, but yield more over time, and don’t disturb the soil structure year after year like annuals, storing more carbon and lessening your labor! At EarthDance Organic Farm School in Ferguson, we grow over 37 varieties of edible perennials including gooseberries, Nanking cherries, paw paws, pears, Asian pears, and rhubarb.

2021 Can Be Your Year
You have complete responsibility for your health. If you are unhealthy, you have 2 choices. You can choose to stay unhealthy, or you can choose to do something about it. Sadly, most of you will choose to stay unhealthy. For the few of you who will do something about it, you will likely have to step outside of the conventional medicine insurance model of care. Do not let that stop you. Find a functional medicine doctor that will address the root cause of your condition. Your 2022 self will thank you.

Support Local Restaurants
Even though it may be harder to go out and support your favorite local restaurant, there are still easy ways to support local restaurants. One of the easiest ways is to buy gift cards. It provides a good source of income for the restaurant and an investment for you to use whenever works best for you. Curbside pickup and takeout are also essential ways to support and still satisfy your cravings for your favorite local spot.

Increasing Physical Activity 
It is crucial to help burn off stress and improve overall health. During this crisis, working from home has greatly reduced physical activity and increased stress.

Get the muscles working! Get the heart rate up! Just get moving! Keep it simple. Being on your feet and moving stimulates bone density. Getting the heart rate up strengthens the heart and lungs, along with helping burn off extra calories. Let it evolve into something that you can do as a means to blow off steam in a healthy way. Keep moving! Keep moving! Keep moving! A healthy life depends on it.

Tips For Self-Growth 
With so much outer stimuli in our world there is a great need for a sense of peace. One of the best ways I know to find our inner peace is through meditation. Carving out even 10 to 20 minutes a day to access a quiet place inside is a great way to begin. As it is said, sometimes we just have to begin. As we find a greater sense of acceptance and peace inside, it transfers to those around us. To learn more about meditation and ways to access your inner awareness, contact Gail Cloud, D.C.; 314-995-9755, gail@bodypresencing.com.

Create Micro-Challenges
Want to grow resilience to help carry you through the New Year? Create micro-challenges that give you a positive stretch – physical, emotional and mental – into something new and slightly uncomfortable. Perhaps you explore a new creative outlet like painting, guitar or metalwork; choose to speak publicly even though the thought of doing so frightens you; or ramp up your workout with full-out 45-second bursts that really push you to persevere (safely, of course!). Then give yourself a pat on the back, and resolve to stretch your limits again tomorrow. Every time you guide yourself through these small victories, you become a little bit stronger and build resilience. We welcome you to try something new within our positive, supportive community of fellow learners, creators and movers. STLCC’s Continuing Education classes span a variety of personal and professional topics and goals for all ages and stages of life.

Connect With Plants
My work with the plant is a lifelong process and has been key to my personal welfare. Plants are incredible tools for self-transformation. Making wreaths and remedies from the wild native plants living on our land has furnished me with the tools to heal my body, mind and spirit. The intelligence within the plant can deeply influence your life and aid your journey. Plants are not innate objects but living, growing green beings that react to your presence, your energy and your thoughts. Plants are wise teachers and faithful friends. It is a rewarding and sacred relationship. Pat Tuholske, nature guide, wildcrafter, wreath artist.

New Year – New Tea?
Let 2021 be a year you try new things that YOU initiate (rather than being forced to by external circumstance). Changing even small habits can create ripple effects in your life or open you to new awareness, if you allow them to. Keeping yourself flexible and open to new experiences and opportunities allows chi to flow in your body and in your life. Try a new one (or more) of our 80+ varieties of tea in single serving trial size – Tell us you saw the suggestion here and we’ll even give you one for free!

Experience The Sound of Soul
HU is the Sound of Soul. Singing HU can expand your awareness; Help you experience divine love; Enhance your spiritual self-discovery and growth; Heal a broken heart; Bring peace and calm. Singing HU draws one closer to God. With eyes open or closed, take a few deep breaths to relax. Then begin to sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) in a long, drawn-out sound: HU-U-U-U. Take another breath, and sing HU again. Continue for up to twenty minutes. Sing HU with a feeling of love, and it will gradually open your heart to God. For more info about HU, the Sound of Soul and the teachings of ECKANKAR, visit www.TheSoundofSoul.org, or call 1-800-LOVE God.

Don’t Stress Over Resolutions
As 2021 begins, people are making resolutions to be a healthier “You”. However, it’s okay to make resolutions; but try not to stress out about it. Getting healthy by changing your current habits takes time and is a slow process. So…. take your time, keep the stress down, slowly remove ‘bad’ health habits, replace with better ones and you will eventually get there. Let’s enjoy this Journey to Good Health. Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year. From the staff of Kim’s Herbs & Detox Center. 314-395-3767. www.herbshopstl.com

it is the first and most important principle of our T’ai Chi practice. A person who is relaxed is more able to approach life with an open mind and attitude. Relaxing allows for better posture and improved balance which in turn results in less back and joint issues. For example, learning to relax your breathing has a calming effect on your whole body.

Manage Pet Waste Without Single-Use Plastic Bags. 
Go beyond using reusable bags at the grocery store! You can eliminate single-use plastic from your pet waste pick-up process in many simple ways! If you have a cat, use paper lunch sacks, biodegradable bags, or old bread, snack or newspaper bags to clean out their litter box. If you have a dog, you have a few additional options. You can flush dog waste using flushable bags, or use a scoop to deposit the waste directly into the trash. Learn more about conservation practices at www.stlzoo.org/conservation/byetobags. From the #byetobags program at the Saint Louis Zoo.

See The Forest & The Trees
A “treemendous” year starts with getting outdoors and enjoying the wealth of benefits trees provide. Trees work for our well-being as much as they work for wildlife and the environment. Studies show that people who spend time around trees concentrate better. Contact with nature helps children improve their creativity, intellectual development and social relationships. Whether it’s a walk in the park, playtime in the backyard, or a hike through the woods, get outdoors and see how trees work for you and your family. Discover all the ways trees and forests are working for you at treeswork.org. From the Trees Work program at the Missouri Department of Conservation. www.treeswork.org

Make a Vision Board
This is a good year to make a vision board. A vision board is a visual representation of changes and goals you want to achieve. The visual collage is a great way for visual learner to manifest what’s best for you by shifting the energy you are sending out around your intentions. Since the last eight months have taken such a toll on us, making a vision board can help turn the energy around for us and others! You can do this by cutting out pictures and words that are meaningful to you and putting them on a board of any size. Your board can have pictures of places you want to visit or things you want to do or recipes you want to try or pictures of people you want to see or anything that you are pulled to. Put it on a board and you can look at it throughout the year or put it away and look at it in a year and see what manifests for you from it.

Wellness in the New Year: A Practical Approach 
As the New Year approaches, most of us make resolutions to live better. For many, that usually includes eating better, exercising, and adopting other healthy habits. Here is a tip to help in your quest for wellness: Improve Your Intake. H2Whoa! Simply increasing your water intake will help detoxify your body and motivate you to be more conscientious of what else you’re ingesting. Try adding tasty essential oils to your water make it more interesting. Lemon, Lime, and Tangerine are all favorites, but don’t forget Grapefruit, Lavender, and Peppermint! In fact, try making your own Grapefruit-Mint Spritzer to enjoy a great blend of flavors that may make sweets and sugary drinks a little less appealing. (Young Living Vitality oils are FDA approved as supplements.)

Pivot to Prosperity for All
Don’t like where things are headed? Try pivoting to a new narrative.

Some say there is not enough to go around, and the only way to deal with an issue is with more and faster growth, more stuff and more income disparity. What if this is the source of most of our challenges, not the solution? Pivot to a new narrative: “We are working together to address societal and economic challenges.” 

This brings life and brings it more abundantly. PIVOT: Prioritize Implementation of this Vision On Time, happening now at Arizmendi Drawdown Ecovillage. Come cause the big PIVOT to prosperity for all.

Move Our Buts
Gluteal muscles, the ones in our BUTTS, are big. You’d they’d be a power source for healthy movement. Hah! Glutes have way less enervation (nerves telling them what to do) than other locomotion muscle groups. Gotta think about ‘em to make ‘em move. So a Butt can bum a free ride while smaller neighbors, like the muscles on your spine, do more than their share. Our BUTS are also lacking nerve. Strong on opinion, puny with work. A big BUT can block motion, emotion, and productive DO. Think about it! Move ‘em.

Trust Your Gut with Aging Parents 
Getting together over the holidays with family is usually one of the year’s top events, but much has changed with the pandemic.

It’s more important than ever that families pay particular attention to the details when communicating over the phone or Face Timing your loved ones this holiday season. If things have changed and you notice that your loved ones are struggling to keep up, please know that your parents will be the last ones to ever ask for help. If your gut is telling you something is not quite right with your aging parents, don’t wait for a crisis to occur!

Treat Your Mouth Right in 2021
With the New Year approaching, you may have already begun to think about your New Year’s resolutions. Why not make your New Year’s resolution to improve your dental health? Brushing and flossing protect your mouth from tooth decay and gum disease, which is caused by your teeth’s most persistent enemy, plaque. Both brushing and flossing are equally important for good oral health. For this new year, resolve to treat your mouth right: improve your diet, quit smoking and improve your oral hygiene habits – your teeth and your body will thank you for it! Joseph S Grimaud, DDS.

Staying Healthy in this Day & Age is as Simple as Becoming More Natural. 
Try being most active during daylight. Scale your diet and activity to the seasons. Move every joint in your body every day. Eat food in its natural form (avoid jars, cans, boxes and packages). Eat at least 5 colors of produce daily. Avoid toxins and artificial substances. Take time to be still each day. Be connected with family and/or friends regularly. Notice that you cannot control much except your reaction to what happens. Treat stress as a toxin. Brian Harasha, Advanced Laser Therapy and Wellness. 


Enjoy Yoga & Meditation
One of the best things you can do to create optimal mental and physical health is yoga and meditation. Meditation can be simple: Here is a five minute practice: 1. With eyes half open or closed, be aware of your body 2. Be aware of sound. 3. Stop the train of thoughts by focusing on your breath. Say thought to your self

when one comes up. Let go of future and past tension/ worries and thoughts. Notice sound with the same technique- name the sound. 4. Stretch out your breath from deeper inside/ abdominal area and make the breath about five -six counts – same length on inhale as exhale. After awhile just experience your normal flow of breath and sound. 5. Be centered and at peace, where there are no problems, regrets or worries 5. Repeat several times a day or continue for 10-25 minutes. Jan Herzog, 314-323-1990.

With the start of a new year comes new resolutions, and this year, Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE) encourages you to add living a more healthy and green life to your list!
