Here’s a little snapshot of the goodies in today’s episode…
- Any imbalance in the body, is going to have an effect on the other channels or organs within the body.
- There are natural times to be doing things to hook up with our natural cycles. In winter we should sleep more, and be less active given the days are shorter. Our days are not meant to be so structured from a man-made point of view – they should follow the natural rhythms of nature.
- Noon is when we should be eating our biggest, most complex meal of the day in keeping with our bodies energy rhythms, so in the evening when you have a small supper, try to eat a little more fiber, fat and protein to feel fuller for longer. You can also try a scoop of coconut oil – between dinner and bedtime.
- To support our heart – make time for joy, love and things that help clear our perspective.
THIS WEEK’S LIVE HAPPIER, HEALTHIER CHALLENGE: A little step we can take to help slow down and to start to relax more, something sustainable for every type of person regardless of what level they’re at in their ability to ‘just chill’ – is BREATHING! Are you noticing a pattern here with guests and their number one positive effect practice during the day? Awareness around your breath seems unanimous. The fastest way to affect your mind is with your breath. Follow your breath into your chest and into your belly, and let your breath become long, easy and gentle. This will help you drop into a more balanced ‘rest and repair’ mode. Take 3 breathing breaks throughout the day, set a little alarm on your phone, and stop to take 10 conscious breaths. This will be huge when trying to slow down and develop a connection with your body.
Our breath anchors us to the present moment, and there is a free guided meditation exercise on Brodie’s website.
Here are Brodie’s social links:
As well as her e-Course on the basics of Chinese Medicine – commencing March 7th, 2017!

Enjoy the show and thanks again for taking the time to rate and review the show – it’s like tipping the bartender and it means the world. (To do this from your phone, you can’t be ‘in the show list’ – go to the podcast search function and type low tox life, and then click on the show and click ‘review’. Annoyingly tricky but hey. I figured I may as well help you out if you’re going to want to take the time to leave a review!)
