Educating

Today is a great and very important day in my life. 6 pm Eastern time was the premiere of my very first YouTube video from my new channel, Pure Peace and Serenity. I collaborated on this project with my very good friend Ralph A. Gonzalez, who is a brilliant hypnotherapist.

His concepts are unique and innovative, so it’s no surprise that his clients love his work as well as his professionalism. I had the great pleasure to interview him and pick his brain about certain subjects that can educate and entertain viewers at the same time. He has his own show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network, which is called Positive Power. Ralph offers services in English and Spanish.

Self-care

In this post, I’m going to approach self-care from a slightly different angle. My husband had his birthday and I wanted to give him something that is more than just a simple gift. He had been working very hard and I thought I’d like to help him take a break and get away from the usual everyday life. He also has some help issues, so I really wanted to give him a chance to redirect his focus to his self-care. Sometimes all of us need someone to look after us and nudge us in the right direction. It was my way of saying I care about you and you should do the same for yourself.
So I got a great getaway for a couple of days, but I didn’t tell him where I was taking him. The reason was that I wanted it to be a surprise for him.

I found a place in Vermont, which is around 5 hours away from us. It’s not too far, but far enough to feel that we’re in a totally different environment. I booked a suite, which has a living room with a fireplace, dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. We’re semi-vegan since last year and I wanted to be able to prepare some food that can help us follow our diet.

There’s a swimming pool outside as well inside, with a hot tub, gym and a game room.
As you can see, I took no chance, making sure he could stay active by using the pool or gym.
The area also has a lot of places that we could visit, such as cheese and maple syrup farms and miniature golf.

Self-care and Well-being

I’m going to write a serious of posts about self-care because I believe it’s a very important part of one’s overall well-being.

Self-care and Well-beingEspecially, in this fast-paced lifestyle, where we’re so busy focusing on our day to day responsibilities and taking care of others’ needs, such as family, we don’t pay attention to our needs such as self-care. Years and years ago, when I was single, I worked 6-7 days a week. Having 2-3 jobs and going to college was really testing my mental, emotional and physical abilities.

Well, at that time I was in my late 20s, and could handle it better. On the other hand, I had neglected myself. I know now that just because I was young, I should not have skipped my self-care, because it could bite me in the “you know what”. After some health issues, I learned to put myself in in front of others. I thought It sounded selfish, but when I was taking a flight, I learned better. Before departure, the flight attendant was giving the usual presentation about the safety rules and that was when I had my “aha” moment. She said in an emergency when the oxygen masks get released, put the mask on myself first and then I should help others. I thought that made sense. If I help others first, it’s more likely that I won’t be able to help anyone else before I pass out without oxygen. If I help myself first, I’m sure I have a better chance to help others, too. What do you think about that? There’re many of you who are still having a hard time practicing this. I’m not saying that I’m perfect. I still have to be very conscious about it and tell myself that it’s OK to put myself first or gift myself with some “me time”. People who love helping others have a natural response of putting them first. I’m one of those individuals. So you may ask – how can you change YOUR behavior?
I have learned the hard way, so my goal is to spread the word, give you some useful information that you may implement in your everyday life and see if it works for you. Especially, I’d like to prevent your overall health to be affected negatively if you have not mastered self-care yet. So I can give you some suggestions that work for me and have some simple steps that I have been using to reduce my guilt of not putting others first.
Last week, I scheduled an interview with Ralph A. Gonzalez, a NYC hypnotherapist, to shoot a couple of videos for my YouTube channel. He was very kind to invite me to his place in New York. We had so much fun, but we got tired after recording 4 videos. Suddenly ideas weren’t coming that easily, and we knew we needed a break. The old me would have pushed through and worked harder to make it happen but the new me acted differently. I was able to let it go and realize that we don’t have to work that hard. This is time for “me time”, not for work. So we took a lunch break, had a nice conversation and relaxed our minds. Later, we went outside for a walk and stopped by the Hudson River. It was very refreshing. Being near the water felt relaxing and mesmerizing at the same time. Ralph took a couple of pictures that I’m going to share with you.

I also took pictures of the view from his place. It’s magnificent for sure.

 

 

Self-care 2, Ralph A. Gonzalez, NYC hypnotherapist

After my “me time”, creative juices were flowing, and we were able to do 2 more videos with no effort, just natural flow. Think about it. Why would you go against the current when you can swim with it?! Self-care also taught me to work smart, not hard.

Empowering

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
