01 May Our tips to start right away
Taking care of yourself means adopting a healthy lifestyle. Meaning what? Eating fruits, limiting excesses, identifying needs, practicing a regular physical activity, ensuring enough sleep, all that… easier said than done, you would answer, having good reasons to say so. Having a clear conscience is seldom endurable over time and our body hates the yo-yo effect. In other words, it’s always better to anticipate it than to regret it later when our body decides to make us pay for that! On the information side, no problem at all: Internet is bursting with ideas, not to mention all the magazines that devote entire pages to the subject every week. But you need to find yourself there. This is why we propose to support Bluetens relaxing programs with regular meetings.
Let’s begin right away with some tips very easy to apply.
Stimulate your energy
Are you familiar with Jin Shin Jyutsu? It is an ancient Japanese art that uses touch to harmonize the body’s energy. You can perform it on yourself to help balance your energy and your emotions by stimulating the meridians that run through your hands’ fingers.

Choosing to eat well may require some changes in your consumption patterns. Prefer fresh, seasonal and natural products. Gradually get rid of ready-made meals, dishes too loaded in preservatives, dyes and salt, from your shopping cart.
Drink enough water
Water is essential for your body. Drink at least one liter per day. It’s better to drink regularly throughout the day than during meals. Drink water at room temperature or turn it into herbal teas.
Practice a regular physical activity
Both your body and your mind need to move in order to contribute to your day-to-day wellbeing. Twenty minutes of daily activity bring energy and peace. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk when the use of the car is not essential, and dance alone or with your family at home.
Drinking a glass of warm mineral lemon water in the morning has many health benefits. Lemon juice is rich in flavonoids, antioxidants, potassium, protein and vitamins B and C. This strengthens our body’s antiviral immunity, relieves inflammations and articular aches. It is recommended to people suffering from fibromyalgia, muscle and joint pain.
Sleeping well is vital
The human body needs 7-8 hours of sleep per day. If your nights are troubled, you can catch up your sleep with 20 minute-naps during daytime. You can also force to yawn (through respiration) to relax your neck and face muscles before stretching smoothly.
Massages with essential oils
Continue or alternate your Bluetens sessions with essential oil massages. A few drops of Wintergreen in olive oil or sweet almond oil are sufficient. Opt for soft and long movements on the areas of the body you wish to relax.
And what about fasting ?
Fasting is a new way to heal; it’s already widely practiced in many countries for medical reasons. This natural process allows toxin elimination and cell regeneration.
Yoga, pilates, nia, sophrology are all techniques that significantly reduce pain intensity, functional disability and the use of pain killing medication. Thanks to these techniques, your body and your mind can have an easier access to harmony and well being.
