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.

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).

Kathy
