Reaping the benefits of nature every day using essential oils with Keri Denney

I met Keri through the Women’s Inspire Network a few years back. Keri is a Wellness Advocate and a Zumba Instructor. During our Twitter Q & A., I learnt lots about reaping the benefits of nature into your home with essential oils. Let’s dive straight into our summary of our Twitter Hour.

Q1: Tell us something of Keri Denney & your Business?

I’m Keri Denney and I’m here to help you kick your self-care into gear. As a Massage Therapist since 1996 and doTerra Wellness Advocate since 2017 and now a Zumba Instructor.

I blend all these things together to help you feel great in your body… today and every day.

I love to travel. I grew up in California and spent many summers in Ireland with my extended family. It was always a dream of mine to move here someday. My husband and daughter loved the idea too so we made the big leap across the pond in 2017.

Q2: What are the best ways to de-stress?

Choosing an activity that you love and enjoy is most important. Forest Bathing emerged in the 1980’s in Japan as a way to get into nature and reconnect. Taking time absorbing all the benefits of nature. Fresh air, peace, clear thinking, perspective.

Q3: What can people do when they cannot get our into nature?

You can bring the benefits of nature into your home with essential oils. The tree oils like black spruce, cedar wood, eucalyptus and many more. Help our bodies feel in nature even if you are at your desk breathing them in for a quick self-care moment.

Brain Fitness Wellness and the Life-Work Balance - Sabrina Cadini-Holistic Life and Brain Fitness Coach

I could talk to Sabrina for hours! We connected on Twitter a few years back and for some reason, I just knew we would a lot in common. And, it turns out we do! Lots!

Did you miss the chat? Well, no worries – let’s dive straight into our re-cap.

Q 1: How does Life-Work Balance relate to our amazing brain?
Q 1: How does Life-Work Balance relate to our amazing brain?
Sabrina Cadini-Holistic Life and Brain Fitness Coach

Body and brain are tightly connected – they should be considered a system, not two separate entities. Our lifestyle choices have a huge influence on our brain’s performance and wellness.

Mindset, focus, clarity, positivity, and flow facilitate our overall success: physical, mental, professional, financial. A well-functioning brain creates more opportunities for success in each aspect of life.

It’s very important that we optimize our bodies AND our brains before anything else so that we can achieve balance and get anything we desire in life and in business

Q.2: How does stress play a role in brain wellness?
Q. 2: How does stress play a role in brain wellness?
Sabrina Cadini-Holistic Life and Brain Fitness Coach

Stress is not bad – a natural response to protect us from threats – but how we react to it can harm us. Cortisol and adrenaline get released during a stress response. Once the threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal.

When it becomes chronic, overexposure to cortisol weakens the immune system, kills brain cells in the hippocampus (reducing memory function), and stops the formation of new neurons.

Overexposure causes a continuous inflammatory response in our brain. As a result, chemicals and other toxins can enter the brain (through a weakened blood-brain barrier) and alter its delicate structure.

Chronic stress can also reduce the production of serotonin and dopamine, two very important chemical messengers. This can lead to anxiety, depression, addictions, and other mental illnesses.

Q 3: What are the best foods and fluids to nourish our brain?
What are the best foods and fluids to nourish our brain? 
Sabrina Cadini-Holistic Life and Brain Fitness Coach

Whole, nutrient-dense, organic foods rich in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients. Stay away from refined sugar as it’s a neurotoxin. Read labels carefully since different types of sugar are hidden in many store-bought foods and drinks

Colourful vegetables & fruits (eat the rainbow), protein (grass-fed meat, wild-caught fish, pastured eggs), healthy fats (nuts, olive oil, avocados), complex carbs (non-glutinous grains, sweet potatoes, beans), herbs & spices

80-85% of the mass of the brain is comprised of water, so proper hydration is necessary. When our body loses just 1-2% of its water content, this is equivalent to a 5% decrease in cognition.

Water is best as it has multiple benefits for your overall health besides hydration: it supports electrical activity of the brain, removes metabolic waste, helps transfer oxygen and nutrients, and more

Green tea is an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory beverage thanks to its polyphenols, and juicing can be an excellent way to help detoxify and support oxygenation.

Q 4: What are the best ways to optimize our brain & slow down cognitive decline?
What are the best ways to optimize our brain & slow down cognitive decline? 
Sabrina Cadini-Holistic Life and Brain Fitness Coach

Nutrition – The right foods give you fuel and energy, lower inflammation caused by toxins, and also provide the right information to your genes for vibrant health.

Sleep – Maintaining a constant sleep pattern helps you regulate hormone production, consolidate memory, and repair/grow new cells.

Movement – Stay physically active during the day to boost your immune system and detoxify your body. #IrishWeddingChat #LifeWorkBalance

Self-Care – Not a luxury. It’s necessary to rest and recharge to increase focus & positivity, boost creativity & productivity, and motivation.
