BecomingYou – What’s New

 

0103d91f1cf640d5c247e1a4ad353285168eab33a9Beginning in May, Tammie will be spending Tuesdays at a very trendy salon in Lincoln Park called Natural Element.  She will be taking classes and learning new techniques and the latest trends and styles in all types of hair care.

The good news is that she will be bringing all she learns back to Becoming You for her clients!

The other news is that she will, of course, be closed on Tuesdays now.  So call early to get your appointments set for Wed – Sat!

How To Eat For Your Best Skin Ever

                                 

Growing up, we were told to eat our greens, but this was only partly right. While green vegetables are a powerhouse of healthful properties, having the other colors in our diet is just as important.

Brightly colored foods contain naturally occurring phytochemicals, which are responsible for giving food its color — the fire-engine red of tomatoes; the deep purple hue of blueberries — and also play important roles in protecting our health and staving off chronic disease: mopping up inflammation, slowing down premature aging, supporting sight, protecting the brain, and assisting our immune system.

Yet for many of us, the color beige is the mainstay of our plates. Foods like cereal, pasta, rice, pastries, chicken and bread often dominate our meals. These foods, especially when processed or bleached, offer much lower levels and less variety of nutrients than we need to keep healthy.

I’m not saying don’t eat them, but I am saying aim for the rainbow when it comes to your daily food choices.

Research has shown that our diets should be predominantly plant-based, and so ensuring that we include plant foods in each meal is an important habit to embrace. Every cell in our body survives on the nutrients it is fed — plant foods are the richest sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and those color-giving phytonutrients, which form their own cool little health-defending gang.

When humans were predominantly hunter-gatherers we ate more than 800 different varieties of plant foods. These days, we have a very limited choice, especially when shopping in supermarkets.

But at farmers markets you’ll find the more unusual forms of our everyday foods, such as purple carrots, golden beets, yellow zucchini, orange tomatoes, and purple broccoli — there really is a wider variety out there to shake us out of our color comfort zone.

Many experts advise us to eat five portions of fruits and vegetables per day, but they don’t stipulate that they need to be in a natural, unprocessed form. And I believe that we really need much, much more. I encourage you to eat three portions of fruit per day, one per meal (a portion being a small handful), and two to three portions of vegetables at each meal, reaching as far and wide in color as possible.

As you go through your day, try to mentally tick off the different colors you are eating. And see where you could possibly add in an extra burst.

18 Sacred Intentions To Set For 2016

You don’t have to set high-pressure, all-or-nothing goals in the new year to do more, get more, or be more. You might think a higher-paying job, a better relationship, or a fancier car will make you happier. But it’s true what they say — happiness comes from within. And cultivating happiness has much more to do with appreciating what you have than with getting things you don’t.

To have a happier, more joyful, and serene year, choose a few of these intentions and embrace them in your daily life.

1. I will take less and give more.

It’s not about what you can get. The more you can give of yourself, the more joy and happiness you’ll feel.

2. I will work less and live more.

I gave up my legal career to do work that I was more passionate about — writing — and I’ve never regretted it for a second. Your office won’t miss you. Spend less time on what pays the bills and more time on what fulfills you. The trade-off is priceless.

3. I will do less and be more.

Quiet time, reflection, and sleep help you stay productive, focused, and peaceful. Focus on doing less, and doing it better, in the new year. Practice saying no to what doesn’t align with your goals.

4. I will speak less and listen more.

Listening is a practice in compassion. The more you listen, the more you understand. The better you listen, the more quickly the walls of conflict crumble.

5. I will buy less and simplify more.

After the holiday season, will you remember anything you purchased or received? The less stuff you have in your life, the more room you’ll have for living. Commit to buying less this year. Give away what you no longer need and work on living with less.

The Easiest Way To De-stress & Calm Anxiety

In 5 Minutes: A Doctor Explains

by Dr. Frank Lipman

Breathing is, fortunately, usually second nature. However, when we get flustered, our breath becomes short and shallow — and stress has nowhere to go but up.

In that flustered state, it’s easy to forget to be in the moment and, as they say, “just breathe.”

But if you pause for a moment and shift focus to your breath, or what’s called breathing mindfully, wonderful mind/body effects start to happen almost immediately: The body’s relaxation response kicks in, heart rate slows, escalating emotions can level off, and things like blood pressure and heart rate start to ease back down into a healthier range.

Breathing mindfully is like an instant chill pill — minus the pill!

Mindful breathing helps relieve tension, restore energy, and reduce stress. It’s one of the fastest ways to combat the stresses of too-busy days.

Best of all, it’s simple, effective, and can be done just about anywhere, at any time. For many people, though, the challenge isn’t knowing when to breathe mindfully — most of us can feel stress rise — but how to do it on demand.

That’s why I’m sharing my favorite breathing techniques, so you can train yourself to breathe mindfully wherever and whenever you need to.

Breathing 101: How to Tune into Your Frequency

If you’re new to the idea of mindful breathing, start by becoming aware of your breathing rhythms at different points throughout the day. You’ll start to notice the breath’s varying pace depending on what’s happening at a particular moment.

For example, if you’re upset, anxious, or you’re exercising, you’ll notice more rapid breathing. When you’re relaxed or falling off to sleep, you’ll notice breathing slows.

Once you’ve spent some time paying attention to your daily breathing rhythms, try practicing this simple form of awareness:

  • Breathe shallowly and rapidly — and see how you feel.
  • Then breathe deeply and slowly — and feel the difference.
  • Breathe in and out, preferably through the nose, with the exhale lasting longer than the inhale.

As breaths come and go, they’ll teach you to let go and go with the flow. Remember, it’s not possible to control everything and be perfect — so “let it go” as you breathe with awareness.

8 Better-For-You Beauty Products You Can

Find At Target (Under $15)

by Allie White

In my never-ending quest to find the best, most affordable, most easily found beauty products on the market, I hit up one of my favorite stores of all time: Target.

I realize Target isn’t the first store you think of when you hear “self-care” or “better-for-you beauty,” but trust me when I say there are gems to be found if you just know what to look for. (And no, they did not pay me to write this.) As someone who cannot walk into a Target without spending too much money on things I don’t need, discovering natural goodies was a pleasant surprise.

Now when I enter the big-box paradise, I’ll have the willpower to skip the industrial-sized vat of kettle corn in favor of these eight self-care products that not only will I actually use but are much better for my body than the soft-serve in the food court.

As someone with fair skin, semi-light hair, and hazel eyes, I always find black mascara a bit too harsh. Lucky for me, this baby comes in a gorgeous “Stardust” brown hue that’s just right for my coloring. And unlike a lot of conventional mascara that takes forever to take off and leaves your lashes feeling brittle and dry, this one is made with coconut oil, so cleanup is a breeze and your lashes are impossibly soft afterward. ($13.99)

FABULOUS FRIDAY News You Can Use

     

Let’s Talk About “IT”

Tender conversations are tough, especially with the ones closest to you. As we both know conversations that prepare and plan can be most valuable in the long run. So let’s talk about “it”—what are your senior loved ones’ desires when it comes to staying at home or moving to a senior community?

Aging safely in place is the main goal but it comes at a cost and needs to be planned for. Your loved one may want to adapt the house, have in-home help, or whatever else it might take to stay in their home. With that being said, let’s discuss the cost of in home care, possible stair lifts, ramps outside the home, safety features in the bathroom, etc.

Moving to a senior community with safety features already in place is ideal, but leaving the home and moving requires forethought. Several discussions will have to take place: how can we downsize? How will we live in community with others? Does your loved one feel they have lost their independence?

Consulting with a geriatric care manager like myself can be helpful in guiding you through the process of understanding what is needed to assist the older adults in your family. Of course we know they may desire the impossible or a not-so-feasible living situation—this is where I can help guide and direct as a neutral, detached party who has the knowledge and experience to see it this through the lens with clarity and direction.

I am here–Bridging the gap of care for those facing the reality of aging.
