There's a missing link in diabetes care; it's a strategic rest.
"Sure I rest," you may say, but let me assure you I'm not talking about sleep, although it will help you sleep better. Creating a ritual of rest is an essential pillar in upping your diabetes health game. In this video, I'll go over in more detail why and how!
Here's why it's important:
-Helps to reduce the perception of stress & stress hormones, making you insulin resistant.
-Improves your discernment, i.e., clarity of mind to adapt to diabetes' changes or rewire your habits.
-Gives you the power to bounce back. Whether that is recovery from an undesirable BG fluctuation or the ability to build a reserve of extra energy.
It's not a secret. You know you should be doing it, but for many reasons, you're not.
-time- we have less and less of it
-prioritization - there are so many things to check off your to-do box. It's the last on the list.
-lack of direction - you know that breathing, meditation, and relaxation are essential, but you do not know how to do it.
If you've been living long enough with type 1 diabetes, you know that it's simply not enough to exercise your body, eat nutrient-dense foods, and take the proper amount of insulin.
It is my mission to help as many people with diabetes as possible learn how to not only PRIORITIZE self-care but also CREATE it for themselves.
