The De-Stress Effect is a new revolution in eating, exercise and relaxation that will return you to vibrant health by gently bringing balance back to your body and your life. The fast pace of modern life and the constant pressure we put on ourselves to keep doing and achieving can keep us locked in patterns of giving in to food cravings, negative habits and self-criticism - keeping our minds and bodies on constant alert. This disruption to the natural rhythms of our body can lead to all kinds of complications that are hard to resolve, including anxiety, depression, insomnia, IBS, weight gain, fertility problems and skin issues. Presenting the latest research on how we can finally heal this damaging cycle, The De-Stress Effect will give you the space to truly feel what is right for your health and your life - realistically, intuitively and with compassion. With a low-stress preparation, six-week eating plan for optimum nutrition, mindfulness practices, yoga sequences and exercise routines, this book will soothe you back to a happier, healthier you, whatever your life's demands.
Digestive issues are widespread and prove difficult to address through mainstream medicine. Senior yoga teacher Charlotte Watts sheds light on the connection between the gut and the brain, explains the links between stress, trauma and digestive issues and demonstrates how yoga with its focus on stilling the mind can have profound effects on conditions such as IBS, IBD, acid reflux, colitis, diverticulitis and more. Breath awareness allows the breath to drop into the belly and diaphragm, essential for good digestive function and understanding the fascial connections within the viscera help shape movement that enables optimal function. Fully illustrated with clear diagrams and instructions, this volume provides yoga, movement and medical professionals with a solid understanding of the digestive system in relation to breath, mindfulness, posture, anatomy, movement, stress and trauma. It helps them to apply this knowledge to their practice and teaching approach.
It's easy to see why a diet high in junk food, additives and sugar is bad for our children's health, but it is also becoming increasingly clear that a bad diet is detrimental to their behaviour and moods. As levels of ADHD, aggression, bullying and low IQ increase, more attention is being paid to the impact of the foods that children are eating every day. The great news is that it's easy to change your child's diet and, in doing so, balance moods and enhance brain function, concentration, behaviour, and ultimately happiness. Charlotte Watts and Gemini Adams show how to prepare quick, tasty and nutritious meals for your children, but in recipes that have the added benefit of improving their mood and behaviour. Whip up a quick breakfast of blueberry and apple muffins, pile chicken dippers, a brown roll and muesli munchies into a lunchbox for them to take to school, fill them up with sweet potato wedges when they get home and serve a feast of smiley-face pizza followed by banana and coconut ice cream for supper. Your kids will love the food and you'll love the improvement in their state of mind and contentment.
