Why You NEED Solitude

In today’s world, with all the buzzing, deadlines and tons of things to distract you,  the idea of taking time to disconnect and simply listen into your own thoughts is nothing short of alien and may even seem lame, yet, it’s one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself.

Solitude allows you to reboot your brain and unwindConstantly being “on” doesn’t give your brain a chance to rest and replenish itself. Being by yourself with no distractions gives you the chance to clear your mind, focus, and think more clearly. It’s an opportunity to revitalize your mind and body at the same time,” writes Sherrie Bourg Carter Psy.D.

“Solitude provides time for you to think deeply. Day-to-day responsibilities and commitments can make your to-do list seem as if it has no end. This constant motion prevents you from engaging in deep thought, which inhibits creativity and lessens productivity,” she continues.

Solitude allows you to become more comfortable in your own skin and gives you the …

Your Metabolism: More Important than You Think

When you hear the word ‘metabolism’ the thoughts that pop up are usually along the lines of the body burning calories when active. Metabolism brings to mind sweat, weights and movement in the gym, however, the process is much more than simply the body burning calories.

Metabolism literally means ‘a state of change’ and whether you’re in the middle of a deep sleep, reading a book or playing with your pets, the body is always active. There is never a time when you’re not using calories, because the body is always storing and consuming energy as well as building up and breaking down molecules necessary to maintain health.

That process is what metabolism is all about and why when it is working as it should, you don’t feel sluggish or fatigued; rather you’re full of energy throughout the day and have brighter moods. This is also the reason why it’s easier to gain muscle mass and lose fat, because your body is sending the right hormone signals to your metabolic system.

Is it any surprise then that the body tries its best to tightly control this process?

Metabolism is a super important process in the body and so to keep control, the body sends out swarms of hormones to travel throughout it.

The connection between your hormones and metabolism influences everything in your body, so checking your hormone levels can give you a great gauge of how healthy your metabolism and overall body really are.

The Key to Feeling Young Again

Beauty tips, cute clothes, hours logged in the gym and a strict diet regimen-, these are the things that we turn to when we want to feel happy again; when we want to recapture the spark of our youth, and make our bodies feel GREAT again!

And all of those things work, they help us to be healthier, to feel more confident and to even look at the world with a wider, more rose tinted and relaxed lens, however, these things are not enough.

They are perfect and essential for a balanced life don’t get me wrong, but these things are only half of the coin when it comes to being truly healthy and living that youthful life.

So what is the other half?

It’s the intangible side of you; it’s the part of you that controls your desires, your emotions and even whether you even do any of the above activities!

It’s the side of you that allows you to perceive the world around you and lives right in your heart.  Mental and mindset health don’t always get the credit and due diligence they deserve and over time we have tried to make them sound much better, talking about self care, self love, passions and goals.

No matter what you call it, this intangible side of you is the difference between you reaching your goals and living the kind of life you desire or you feeling muggy, stuck and n stasis, crumpled by stress.

This side of you, the side that should be ruled by your intuition also needs exercise, it needs to be nourished and it needs to be maintained so that you feel not only young again but energetic and unconditionally happy.

It is what will allow you to face your fears, conquer your challenges and stand back up with a huge grin on our face when you are knocked down.

To guide you towards the balanced health of that side of you, we at Ashlee Unscripted created the Level Up Journal Prompter.


READY TO ELEVATE?

LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE BY LETTING YOUR REAL FEARS, DESIRES AND STRATEGIES POUR OUT OF YOU WITH THIS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE GUIDE


This book will take you on an insightful journey through your own life and help you to paint the picture of who you intend to grow into next.

It tackles some of the most common pain points as well as pleasure centres  of that side of you and allows you space to vent out not only your frustrations, but also the things you really, really, really want!

Journaling has always been a great way for me to bring the things in my subconscious out into the open where I could look at them and really see them, really acknowledge these wants, desires and also the hurdles.

Says, Ashlee Cox, author of the Level Up Journal Prompter.

This particular book is filled with prompts, insights and actionable tasks that I myself took when I was going through a mindset transition and I felt awful, but knew there had to be more to this and as I face the pain points, I created the journal as well.”

This is a labour of love she is quick to point out and as such she admits that she was skeptical of compiling the questions and thought s she had gone through into a product and release it into the world, but over time, when more of her readers responded to her messages on trying to get their life on track, and expressing their want to feel younger, happier and like they were growing into an enhanced version of themselves, she put the prompter for sale.

It is really for anyone who is trying to figure their life out and want to get back to heart and center. It’s for the person who wants to truly feel young again and be really healthy, because they are taking care of both sides of themselves and allowing themselves to truly grow!” said Ashlee.

Some of the topics covered within the prompter include, reconnecting to the self, repurposing limiting beliefs and conquering mental blocks, understanding the importance of energy and what you are expending yours on, as well as breaking down manifesting abundance and understanding how energy ties it all together.
