Easy Qi Gong Routine for Anxiety and Stress

Here is an easy qi gong routine for anxiety, stress, and depression. For more info on qi gong come visit us at: http://qigongforvitality.com Qi gong practice is great for stimulating the healing of several different problems; anxiety, stress, and depression being one of the many. While you should always make sure that you are under the care of a primary healthcare provider, qi gong practice can greatly help calm your mind and body down. This is a traditional qi gong routine that helps “push” stagnant qi out of the body. When we have ‘stress’ of any sort, it causes the qi to become stagnant. When you get an acupuncture treatment, exercise, and practice meditation, qi gong, tai chi, or yoga you can move your qi. This routine specifically helps move stagnant qi from stress when it is causing: -chest tightness -anxiety -depression -palpitations, irregular heart beat -insomnia -repetitive looping thoughts -throat tightness -excessive or no appetite -digestion problems -sweating -weakened immune system -nightmares Practice this routine every day. After you have done it 10 times or so, you will probably remember it, so you can practice even twice a day. Let me know what you experience!...

Many of you may already know this, but a big part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture is the practice of Qi Gong. Qi means breath or energy, Gong means work. It is an exercise similar to Tai Chi, but easier to learn and practice. While I love TCM and acupuncture, I feel really passionate about Qi Gong! I dare¬†you, just ask me to talk a little about Qi Gong and you will see how excited I get! The reason I like it is because it is a form of self care that has many hidden “secrets” in it. Over the past year or so I have been “academically” analyzing qi gong to figure out why it actually works. I see there are so many movements that are the most effective¬†exercises in physical therapy, core exercises, and rehab built into the soft, circular movements of qi gong. Often, during a practice, or routine you don’t even know what you are doing, but you just feel better after you are done. This is the reason why. The joints and muscles get loosened up and relaxed during qi gong.

Easy 5 Minute Blueberry Crisp

Easy 5 Minute Blueberry Crisp

Here is the easiest way to make a Blueberry Crisp. I make this when I don’t know what to make for breakfast but I want it done in under 10 minutes! I am mainly showing you this recipe because I was having a conversation with a patient who said, “You just can’t eat “fun” food at home without being an amazing cook!” I disagreed and told her about this Berry Crisp. 2 disclaimers- yes there is sugar in it, and yes it uses the microwave. If you have a nice mix of berries you do not need to add any sugar to the berries. I think you can get away with not having any sugar in the “topping” as well but I would say the majority of Crisp eaters would prefer just a little bit. As for “Chef Mic” you can bake it at 350F for 35 minutes if your prefer. It does taste a little nicer because the topping becomes nice and crispy but it is perfectly delicious when zapped. The best part about Crisp is that you can add spices, nuts, seeds, coconut, dried fruit, bird seed, anything you want! Enjoy! ~Think...
