Do you reward and de-stress yourself with alcohol, and ready to stop?

These days, it’s not uncommon to have a glass of wine to “destress” and “reward” yourself after the kids go to bed, and then get together with your girl friends on the weekend and drink more wine.

But then eventually, that one glass of wine turns to 2, and 2 turns to 3…and so forth.

Suddenly, you notice you wake up feeling crappy and your energy levels crash throughout the day. You have brain fog.  You crave sugar.

And yet, as much as you tell yourself that you won’t have wine anymore…you end up giving in.

But…you still can function in life normally, so you justify that it’s okay to drink again.

Sound familiar?

Humorous photos like this make drinking wine seem like it’s a totally normal way to cope with life.

winethirty.jpg

Our society has “normalized” drinking as if it is okay for people to hide behind the glamour of drinking wine as a way to destress, and paints a picture that everyone else is doing it too- so it’s okay right? 

Wrong.

Answer the following questions honestly:

Do you crave wine, and have a hard time saying NO to it?

Is your drinking affecting your mental clarity?

Your digestion?

Creating low energy level?

Low mood and/or moodiness?

Gaining Weight?

Do you have healthy ways to cope with stress that do not involve alcohol or food?

Here’s the thing:

Alcohol and food are ways to HIDE from dealing with the real issues. It’s much easier (temporarily) to turn to food/alcohol so that you don’t have to feel uncomfortable about the issues in your life.  I also see clients who often use food/ alcohol as a way to reward themselves after a stressful day.

I would highly recommend working with a coach or therapist to support you in finding healthy ways to deal with your emotions and address your struggles. Trying to stop patterns alone is not easy, and having a professional who is trained to help you shift your mindset and transform your life is critical.

Other healthier activities include talking to your medical doctor or naturopathic doctor if you think you are suffering from depression or anxiety. Often times, people use alcohol to self-medicate, which is not actually going to support you in the long run.

YL Stressaway.jpgA natural resource you could use to support your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual need is essential oils.  Oils have healing and transformative properties in mind, body and spirt. There are a lot of research that backs up aromatherapy as a very effective and beneficial way to help you alleviate undesirable symptoms in mood, hormones, body chemistry, and physiology.

I love using Young Living Essential oils personally and professional, when I am working with my clients because of the purity, integrity of these oils- they are non-GMO, organic, and pure.

Essential oils have been around for thousands of years, providing calming and relaxing effects, a healthy energy boost, reducing stress,  and promotion of an overall feeling of well being. Essential oils complement these natural therapy choices like acupuncture, yoga, and meditation.  The following oils can support you to wean off alcohol.

Please always work with a professional who is well versed in supporting you mentally, emotionally, spiritually and understands the use of oils for effective results.

The following essential oils may be of value to people in recovery:

1. Ginger Oil: Since your body itself takes a tremendous physical toll from excessive and regular consumption of alcohol, particularly the liver, ginger oil actually does demonstrate some ability to prevent damage to the liver. Ginger oil is also a mild stimulant. This means that it may lift mood and increase mental clarity.

2. Black Pepper Oil: It has been suggested that black pepper essential oil can have tremendously beneficial detoxification benefits in some people both by stimulating extra sweat and urine output.

3. Lavender oil  helps people become calm and relaxed. Great if you want to get in the mood for sleep or just want to unwind at the end of a busy day.
4. Ylang Ylang is another essential oil that is believed to be good for relaxation.
5. Lemon oil is believed to enhance mood and make people feel like they have more energy. There is also some evidence to suggest that it can help people deal better with stress.

6. Peppermint oil Great for relieving mild headaches, nausea – which are often symptoms of people going through withdrawals.

7.  Jasmine  lifts the mood and can be used as a mild antidepressant.

8.  Pine is also a stimulant that can lift mood.

FREE 5-DAY SELF LOVE VIDEO SERIES

FB cover - Embrace Inner BA (4).pngAre you stuck in the cycle of try, fail, hate yourself, and then try all over again?

Hi! I am RosAlyn Fung, a Self-Love Life and Business Coach, and I’m here to change your mindset so you can live a kick ass life!

There was a time when I was imprisoned by the thoughts of food. I obsessed over what I was supposed to eat and when I could eat next. It got to the point I couldn’t think about much else. I was stuck and life was miserable. I was not doing all the things that brought me joy and happiness and fulfilment because I was waiting for me to get to the perfect size so that I could live the life of my dreams.

Is that how you feel? The perfect life is on the other side of a number on the scale, more money, or more time?

When I got to the perfect size, and everything was SUPPOSED to change, I found I still wasn’t happy. That is when I realized that your life is not determined by your size. Joy and fulfillment in your life is determined by how you think about your life.

So, if you want to become more comfortable in your skin,

if you want to unleash that inner badass that is just waiting to come out but is hidden by all this fear and shame and lack of self-confidence,

if you want to drown out that negative voice in your head that says I can’t, I shouldn’t, I’m too fat or too old or feel ugly, I have this awesome FREE 5-Day Video Series for you now called Embrace Your Inner Badass with food, body image, self-care, money mindset & SELF-WORTH.

I am so excited to show you some practical tips to get you started on embracing your inner badass so you can live a life WITHOUT LIMITS!

Calling all Moms & Women: Join me in the Sexy Black Dress Challenge

Sexy is not about truly about what you look on the outside…it starts with how you feel on this INSIDE.
 
I’m all about embracing SEXY from a place of SELF-LOVE and SELF-WORTH. It’s about your mindset.
 
When you feel sexy on the inside, you start to also show up in a way that is alignment of that sexy energy. 
 
Sexuality is about the ENERGY you hold, it can stand on it’s own WITHOUT engaging in sexual acts. These are NOT the same.   Nor is sexy dressing skimpy and being half naked, like what our society would define as sexy. No, no, no…this is NOT what I’m talking about.
 
Think about it this way: There are people who do not fit what our society would see as physically “attractive”, yet they ooze a lot of magnetizing energy. And then there are some people who our society would see as physically “attractive” and they lack this magnetizing energy. Why? 
 
Because it’s all about the energy you hold- confidence, self-worth, happiness, joy, vibrant energy, grounded, reflective, present, charismatic, passionate, humble, humility, generous, kind, nurturing, connective….they SHOW UP in a way that vibrates peace, happy and freedom. This only can come from inside out. You cannot fake sexy. 
 
So with this knowledge, when I say Sexy, I mean it about how you SHOW UP in the world as attractive (whatever that means to you). Sexy is subjective and this is all about being in alignment of what sexy is to you! 
 
I know some of you may be feeling resistant to the word Sexy because it may bring up negative beliefs, memories and stuff for you- especially if you have issues with being attractive and getting attention, particularly from men. 
 
If this is you, I invite you to REFRAME, REDEFINE, RECLAIM your right to be sexy – and I’m happy to support you 1 on 1 if stuff comes up for you as you go through this challenge. In the meantime, I believe this challenge can help you RECLAIM and RECREATE that SEXY IS part of BEING EMPOWERED.
 
SoooOoooooo…..Are you ready to take a challenge to get the mindset and sexy body plan to fit in that Sexy Black Dress?
 
Can you allow yourself to slip into that Sexy Black Dress right now?
Imagine if you had a sexy body plan to help you release unwanted weight, increase your energy, so that you can be more present and show up in the best version of you!

How to Prevent Wrinkles and Get Clear Skin? Try These Proven Methods

As you get older, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and moisture. This makes it more susceptible to wrinkles among other signs of aging. Dermatologists have various solutions that can help you deal with those undesirable lines that signify old age. Some solutions include chemical peels, Botox, prescription creams, and scientifically proven natural products. However, the best solution is to ensure that your skin stays protected. Here is How to prevent wrinkles and get clear skin.

Use Creamy, Oil-Free Face Washes To Whisk Impurities Away And Hydrate Your Skin

Your skin is likely to become more flexible if you keep it moisturized. Protect your skin using lukewarm water and avoid hot or cold water. When applying your face wash, do so in gentle circular motions. Consider using the tips of your fingers for gentler, nicer lather. Remember to pat your face dry after you’ve applied your face wash. Don’t scrub or rub with your towel to avoid irritating your skin.

Use Vitafirm Anti-Aging Cream

This is a scientifically proven natural formula meant to minimize aging appearance on your skin. It works by improving the elasticity of your skin. Also, it repairs the surface of your face making it smooth and soft. It contains a desirable amount of Vitamin C, which helps maintain natural glow and even skin tone. Vitafirm Anti-Aging Cream helps in collagen production, which helps with skin elasticity.

By using Vitafirm Anti-Aging Cream every day, you will instantly notice the difference. The cream works at your skin’s cellular level making it firm and improve its appearance. Additionally, the cream protects the skin against solar damage. Its ingredients help reduce skin puffiness and inflammation. Using this cream every day will increase the ability of your skin to produce collagen. The effectiveness of this cream is guaranteed by its high-quality ingredients that include glycerin, vitamin C, shea butter, resveratrol, retinol palmitate, and marine collagen.

Make Sure That Your Skin Stays Protected From The Sun

When UV radiations get inside your skin, they create volatile free radicals, which cause wrinkles. Therefore, try as much as possible to avoid the sun especially between 10 am and 3 pm. Eat foods and drink beverages that contain powerful antioxidants to prevent your skin from wrinkles caused by the sun. Some perfect examples include green tea, blueberries, and pomegranates. Also, use moisturizers or creams that contain antioxidants.

Wear sunglasses regularly to protect your skin. Clothes with UV protection capabilities can come in handy especially if you spend lots of time outdoors. Remember sunscreen and use one with more than 30 SPF. Additionally, consider sleeping on your back to avoid sleep lines. Note that sleep lines turn into wrinkles with time. Moreover, sleeping on your back is good for the wellbeing of your spinal cord.

Stop Smoking

Studies show that smokers are more likely to exhibit excessive wrinkling as opposed to nonsmokers. What cigarette smoke does to your skin is to damage collagen, which helps keep your skin firm. Over time, lip pursing and squinting associated with smoking directly lead to wrinkles. You can also prevent wrinkle formation by controlling your facial expressions. Usually, more animated expressions imply more creases, which become wrinkles. At first, controlling your facial expressions can prove to be difficult. However, if you stop eyebrow raising, frowning, and squinting, you can manage to control your facial expressions in the long run.

Use Over-The-Counter Products

Some over-the-counter products can help prevent and eliminate wrinkles. One perfect example is retinoid. Usually, this product is only available on prescription but can be purchased in milder concentrations over the counter. Beware that retinoid causes irritation and redness to the skin. If over-the-counter products fail to work, talk to a dermatologist about it. The professional will suggest other options for you. Wrinkles caused by excessive muscular contractions including crow’s feet or horizontal lines can only be treated by injecting botulinum toxin. You may require filler injections if you have deep wrinkles.

Conclusion

Prevent wrinkles from your skin by ensuring that your face stays hydrated at all times. Hydration helps make your skin flexible allowing it to slide and move freely without damage. Remove impurities from your face by washing it two times every day. When washing your face, refrain from using hot or cold water. Instead, use lukewarm water to get impurities off your face. Use a gentle face wash to remove stubborn impurities. When applying your face wash, make sure you don’t rub or scrub aggressively to avoid irritation and redness. Scrubbing may also damage the younger, new skin below. Smoking accelerates wrinkling and other aging signs. Therefore, quit smoking to get clear skin.

My Self Love Interview with Nourishing Everyday

Whooohoo! 
I had the privilege to be interviewed by Holistic Nutritionist Clinical Practitioner, who also has a Registered Nurse background of over 20 years, and my friend, Shonda Holt of Nourishing Everyday. She has a goal of doing 1000 interviews. I had the honor and opportunity of being interviewed by her for her View of Hope Interviews. 
In this interview, Shonda asks me why I’m so passionate about inspiring and empowering people to love themselves and love their bodies. She also has me sharing some insightful tips on how to start thinking differently and practicing Self-Love. 
And she had some fun questions to ask me about my personal life and memories, so you can get to know me a little bit more up close and personal 😉

In Shonda’s own words: “I started this project to showcase amazing people in our world that have a vision/mission or passion to improve people’s physical, emotional, mental &/or spiritual health. Or, they have a mission/vision to improve the state of those things I believe we were given to care for such as the environment &/or animals.
My goal is to show you that there is hope. If you are struggling or find that some days the world feels dark and negative know that there are at least 1000 people who are spending their lives to make it a better place.”
you can check out my video here and check out the rest of interviews here . I encourage you to check out Shonda’s website, she’s got some awesome health programs!
