Taking Care of YOU – Mind, Body, and Soul with Christy Montes

Taking Care of You - Mind, Body and Soul with Christy Montes and The Real Kathy LeeEpisode 7: Taking Care of YOU – Mind, Body, and Soul with Christy Montes

In last week’s episode I chatted with my dear friend and naturopath doctor, Christy Montes about transforming yourself from Last to First. If you missed it, DO NOT listen to this episode without going back and listening to that one first.

If you have not taking care of yourself in the past, you have the power to change that. Take some time to evaluate your life, your past, and your health. Ask yourself some important questions:

1. Do I have anything in my past that I need to address, any trauma or hurt?

2. Do I love myself, why or why not?

3. What is one thing I desire to see change or improve in my life?

Don’t be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things about yourself and dare to change the things that have been keeping you down. You are worthy of love and belonging. You are perfectly imperfect and that should be celebrated. If you do not own a journal, I highly suggest you buy one today. You can read my story about journaling here. Seek out a good friend, therapist or pastor to help you on this journey of emotional self- awareness.

Christy suggested the following books for anyone of this journey:

 

     

 

     

 

In addition to being aware of your emotional health, Christy suggests everyone follow a balanced diet (80/20) and get sufficient rest. If you can only afford a few basic supplements, Christy suggests adding a good digestive enzyme, a good probiotic, and possibly a Bach Flower remedy to your daily regiment.

You can contact Christy Montes with Trinity Wellness at drchristymontes@gmail.com or text her directly at 678-923-5047.

Go love yourself well!

 

You’ve got this,

Kathy

Homeschool Success with Your Struggling Learner

Homeschool Success With Your Struggling LearnerHomeschool Success with Your Struggling Learner with Dr. Jan Bedell

It seems more and more children these days have some sort of learning struggle that challenges their academic progress or gives them one of the common learning or behavioral labels like ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, OCD, bipolar, Asperger’s and the list goes on.   It is estimated that 1 in 5 US children suffer with a learning challenge, so you are not alone if you have a child that needs help for reading comprehension, help with math or has word recognition or other academic struggles.

As you may be experiencing, educating a child that is struggling academically, emotionally or behaviorally can be a real challenge. Sometimes when you are out there, seemingly alone as a homeschool mom, you can even start to doubt yourself and wonder if you are equipped for the job.  After all, the educators may have told you that you should let the professionals handle things.   Let me assure you, your precious little one is in the right place, at home!  If you are just now considering homeschooling your struggling learner, I highly encourage you to do so.

Topics discussed in this podcast:

  1. School staff often recommend more one-on-one instruction for children that are struggling.  Brain Coach Tip – The best place to receive that extra attention is at home where love abounds.
  2. Often the suggestion is to label the child with a learning disorder. Brain Coach Tip – It is better find out what is causing the symptoms and address those directly instead.
  3. When parents are equipped with the right information, the sky is the limit to where their struggling learner can go.
  4. Giving input to the child instead of frustrating them by expecting so much output is important.
  5. The NeuroDevelopmental Approach for Life really does apply to all ages. It’s simply never too late!
  6. If you are new to Brain Coach Tips, you will find useful information in podcasts #17 &18 about root causes of reading and math struggles. In #15 & 16 discover answers for attention issues, and in 20, 21, and 22 you will receive answers for sensory challenges. Many of these issues are the root cause of labeling and medicating children. Changing the brain’s function through specific stimulation can avoid all that and secure the functional results you are looking for.
  7. Discover ways to make your homeschool a “no more tears, learning zone.”
  8. Acquire a strategy to change the atmosphere in your home from negative to positive.
  9. Find out why your child might not be seeing correctly even though his eyes check out as 20/20.
  10. Additionally, learn the reason why your child may get stressed with a test and often can’t remember what you know that he knows.

Helping you reach far beyond the limits of labels, learning struggles, and their negative effects is our goal at Little Giant Steps. You as a homeschool mom can open a brilliant future for your child through understanding how the brain works . . . or why it doesn’t currently seem to be working so well.

From Last to First with Christy Montes

 

From Last to First with Christy MontesFrom Last to First with The Real Kathy Lee

On this episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with my dear friend, Christy Montes. Christy is the homeschooling mother of four girls and works as a naturopath, serving others through her gift in the industry of natural medicine. Both Christy and I share our journey from legalism to grace and from putting ourselves last to caring for our own needs before others.

Christy and I get honest in this episode, sharing our hearts for other moms who might be facing similar situations. Christy encourages moms to look in the mirror and name 10 things they like about themselves. As a journaling fan, I encourage moms to take it a step further by writing down affirmations and read them daily

Both Christy and I have seen the benefit of looking in the mirror and seeing ourselves; our desires, our gifts, our longings and asking the Lord to continue to grow those areas during our motherhood season. We have found it much easier to give grace to other people who may have different convictions and preferences because we know how much grace we need on a daily basis. We continue to work at letting go of the pride that once ruled us as we parented from a “mom last” mentality.

We have learned a lot about the connection of emotional health and physical health. We have seen many men and women get healthier physically when they get healthier emotionally. We will discuss this further in our next episode together. Don’t miss it!

“It is estimated that 90 percent of all physical problems have psychological roots. That may sound like a gross exaggeration. In fact, it’s probably a conservative estimate. A growing body of evidence indicates that virtually every ill that can befall the body from acne to arthritis, headaches to heart disease, cold sores to caner- is influenced, for better or worse, by our emotions. “ (Quoted from The Complete Guide to Your emotions and Your Health p.563 by Emrika Padus and the editors of Prevention magazine).
