LIFESTYLE: HOW TO STIMULATE YOUR VAGUS NERVE

………….VIVA LOST VAGUS !!!

OK guys lets get the jokes out of the way. Vagus diametrically opposed to ‘Vegas” this is not a wild, partying drinking exercise but a calming, peaceful experience.

I first learned about the Vagus Nerve and the Thymus gland (fed by the VN) many years ago during my training to become a Sound Healing Practioner. The benefits of stimulating this nerve and gland are so great I thought i would share them with you today.

WHAT IS THE VAGUS NERVE

The Vagus nerve is the longest of all cranial nerves. It travels from the brain through the trachea, larynx, heart, lungs, liver, spleen, pancreas and intestines.

BENEFITS OF STIMULATING THE VAGUS NERVE

Bearing in mind all the organs this nerve passes through the benefits to both your body and your mind can be huge. There is a direct link to mental health such as depression and anxiety. Coping with the effects of stress on the body by calming the heart rate and emotions. Inflammation in the organs. Responsible for making white blood cells therefore boosting immunity. Aids digestion as the nerve is supplying the digestive tract right down into the intestines. The health of this nerve therefore is important to the body holistically.

HOW TO STIMULATE THE VAGUS NERVE

MASSAGE

  1. To calm your anxiety immediately we can use the branch of the vagus nerve in the ear and neck. There are many nerve endings in this area stemming from the vagus nerve. So gently pull on each ear in turn. Massage gently behind the ear in front of the hairline and then in front of the ear. The massage should be light and sensory not full acupressure. When in front of the ear bring the middle finger and fore finger in a straight line down the side of each neck. You will find this action very calming and great for anxiety.

SINGING AND CHANTING

As the vagus nerve is connected to the vocal chords and throat this is a great way to stimulate them and reap all of the aforementioned benefits. Of course belting out Motorhead or heavy metal songs will not have the same effect as gentle music and gentle chants too. As you are probably aware chanting is normally deep in the throat try OHHHHHHH, AHHHHHHHH, EEEEEEEEEH. Humming is also good . Hum every morning when you are in the shower to wake that Vagus Nerve up.

BREATHING

Just rhythmic breathing from the abdomen can really help but combining this with Ujjai breathing is really powerful. If you practise yoga you will be familiar with this style of breathing, throat breathing. Vibrating a sound as you breathe out deep in the back of the throat.

YOGA

Holding poses, breathing, twisting, chanting relaxation. Doing a daily yoga practice can maintain a healthy vagus nerve and keep it at an optimum level.

THE THYMUS GLAND

This gland is located in the centre of your chest just behind the breastbone and directly connected to the vagus nerve. Leading Psychotherapists state that the Thymus Gland “controls the life energy of the body”. Tapping on the Thymus is a simple technique you can use anytime if you want to strengthen your immune system.

The tapping should be heavy enough to make a drumming sound in your chest. Tap in an anti clockwise direction for about 30 seconds. breathe naturally as you do this. The vibration caused by the tapping stimulates the gland and the vagus nerve it is attached to, massaging the heart, lungs and bronchial tubes and draws blood and energy to nourish the thymus.

The thymus tap is also good for jet lag. Tap every hour while travelling to reset your body clock.

So this extra long nerve and this little gland are incredibly powerful and by giving them a little extra attention and some love and care you will reap some amazing rewards.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: As a Sound and Vibration expert never underestimate the power of vibration on the body. Remember 60% of the body is water. Vibration helps to clear the channels and pools of stagnation within the body. .Think of it like a flowing mountain stream with clear fresh water and eliminating those muddy little pools. These exercises contained in these articles will help you to connect with your body and get to know it better.

BEAUTY: PRE PARTY PAMPER

COUNTDOWN ON THE NIGHT

ITS CHRISTMAAAAAAS ! Parties are back on the menu. I am sure all my readers have a big night out planned so its time to shake your beauty routine up and indulge with a celebratory pamper evening. Yes girls and boys its all about you and shaking off the lockdown look.

THE COUNTDOWN STARTS HERE ……….

So let us assume that you managed to get your nail bar appointments ( hey girlfriend where were you ?) at least Monday or Tuesday ! No one does their own nails anymore do they ?? Otherwise allow an extra hour. Also pre select your outfit and accessories and lay them all out on the bed beforehand. No last minute rummaging or repairs to stress you out.

5.00PM

Pour a glass of bubbles and get some party music on. Put on a fluffy terry robe. Pull hair back. Cleanse face, with a firm facial massage to get the blood pumping and bring a glow to your skin. Now is not the time for micro needling or glyco peeling or using new products.

Scrutinize the eyebrows plucking any stray hairs and tidy them up.

5.30PM

Now time to depilate any excess hair. I suggest a gentle method for your pre party pamper. Apply some cream such as Immac or Veet and while that is working for 10 minutes use that time to body brush the rest of your body .

5.45PM

Jump in the shower to rinse the cream. Gently exfoliate with a handful of sugar and olive oil especially on your depilated areas to avoid ingrown hairs. Wash hair. Finish with a freezing cold burst of water on hair to flatten the cuticles and all over your body to energise you.

6.15PM

Now you are all clean. Draw a warm luxurious bubble bath. HIGHLY RECOMMEND L’OCCITANE LEMON VERBENA FOAM BATH £22. Remember this is about a celebratory pamper not wallowing in your own filth (and depilitary cream!). So to your damp hair apply a rehydrating super glossy hair mask and wrap in a hot towel or turban. My fave is BLEACH LONDON REINCARNATION MASK £7.50.

Apply a no nonsense hydrating sheet mask. An inexpensive but highly effective one I have recently tried is GARNIER MOISTURE BOMB £2.99.

Wallow for a good 15 minutes. Rinse hair mask.

6.45PM

Wrap yourself in a huge warm terry towel. Pat yourself dry. Rub in residue of face mask into skin.

Spritz yourself in a dry body oil to lock in the moisture and make your skin look glistening and healthy. Two fabulous ones are BOOTS NO7 BEAUTIFUL SKIN PAMPERING DRY BODY OIL £12 AND A FIRM FAVOURITE, HUILE PRODIGIEUSE DRY OIL choose the one with the gold sparkle in it. A good tip here run some through dry hair for glistening shine.

Rough dry hair. Put in large velcro rollers for smooth hair if required. Just don’t apply too much heat to hair by overdrawing and over processing. Remember we are going for a glossy just got out of lockdown look !!

7.15PM

Giant rollers in. Time to do your make up. Skin should be looking plumped and glowing. Apply a moisturiser and a base such as MAC STROBE CREAM £25 that now comes in 4 shades. This can make any skin look dewy. Apply your foundation/bb cream over the top. Some over tips for a glossy look use cream products where possible. NARS ILLUMINATOR in COPACABANA dabbed onto your cheekbones. LAURA MERCIER SECRET UNDER EYE BRIGHTENING POWDER £22.50 to light up under eyes. As you get older the less eye make up the better it looks more youthful. KEVIN AUCOIN DIAMOND EYE GLOSS a beautiful transparent eye close that glistens. I discovered a fabulous new mascara in lockdown for long glossy smudge proof lashes MARC JACOBS AT LASH’D MASCARA £25. Finish with an extra glossy nude/beige lip gloss , much more flattering on older lips than bright colours.

Set your make up with my perennial favourite BARRY M DEWY FIXING SPRAY £4.99 I NEVER leave the house without a spritz of this on my face for an all day fresh dewy look.

7.45PM

Rollers out. Run fingers through hair with some iconic KERASTASE HAIR ELIXIR £39 for radiant hair and an extra spritz of shine mist. The best I have tried is BRITISH HAIR PERFECTLY BRILLIANT SHINE SPRAY £9.95 it smells good too.

800PM

Heading for the finish line. Just before getting dressed give your body a good shake. Each leg, each arm , your head and shoulders , hands, feet . You will be surprised at this instant energiser. Slip into your clothes. A quick spritz of your favourite perfume. One last look in the mirror to check yourself out . Blow yourself a kiss, tell yourself “I love you” and head out of that door to re establish your social life. HELLO WORLD !

HOW TO MAKE YOUR FOOTPRINT GREEN

With COP26 well under way this week in Glasgow, lets talk green !

Now , I realise some people are in denial about climate change but no one can deny that we are ruining our planet with at best poor housekeeping and at worst dirty filthy habits. There also can be NO denial that we can nurture our planet by all just making a few subtle changes to our lifestyle.

I decided to write about this following a dinner party discussion which involved us listing how green we were. Now I have never really thought about myself as being a green activist but I was surprised how “green” I actually live. I know I could do more but what I do , I do on a consistent basis, without too much trouble or hardship. So I will list the things that I came up with over the dinner table, which I am sure most of you already do, but if you don’t try to make some small adjustments to help clean our beautiful planet up. If I can do it, I am pretty sure you can. The planet is a thing of beauty to be handled with care and passed onto the many generations to whom we pass the baton.

  • Always shower and only for 30 seconds unless i am washing my hair, rarely bath.
  • I generate only half a small bag of waste each week. Only use bio degradable bin bags never plastic.
  • Turn tap off while cleaning my teeth
  • I do not class myself as a vegetarian but I only meat about once every six months
  • Do not buy fast disposable fashion. I shop for clothes twice a year not twice a week ( or as some people do twice a day !!!)
  • No longer buy bottled water I bought a Brita filter jug but I use the filter three times longer than recommended. I have a reusable bottle for life for water on the go.
  • Energy efficient . I only have lights on in the room that is being occupied.
  • Installed solar panels on my roof to lower my energy bills.
  • Make my own cleaning products from white wine vinegar/lemon juice and soda crystals to cut down my chemical waste.
  • Now take trains for long journeys (this is new to me !!) but they are much better than I recall.
  • I have hessian lifetime shopping bags.
  • Buy loose fruit and vegetables and don’t even use the plastic bags on the rack they go onto the conveyer belt singularly !!
  • Oh… and I only have one child. Now I would never, unlike Meghan and Harry tell you how many children to have. Even though they now have gone against their own advice. Do as they say not as they do has become their mantra ! But just saying. This is only about me.

I certainly do not want to become a green preacher but these are all simple things to inject into your everyday life without too much planning. Think, if we all did these basic things what a massive difference we could make collectively.

Speak No Evil

I HAVE GROUPS OF GIRL MATES AND GROUPS OF BOY MATES. WHAT I NOTICE ABOUT THE BOYS THAT THEY DON’T GOSSIP ABOUT EACH OTHER IN THEIR ABSENCE. THIS IS DEFINITELY PREVALENT WHEN I AM SOCIALISING WITH GROUPS OF WOMEN. ALMOST IN ORDER TO MAKE THEMSELVES FEEL BETTER IT HAS TO BE AT THE EXPENSE OF TALKING DOWN ANOTHER FEMALE. THIS SEEMS TO BE REACHING PANDEMIC PROPORTIONS WITH THE CONTINUED RISE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND CELEBRITY CULTURE AND A TOXIC MIX OF ENVY AND INSECURITY CREATE THE PERFECT COCKTAIL TO BE MEAN.

WHEN WE SPEAK NASTILY ABOUT ANOTHER WOMAN IT IS USUALLY A REFLECTION OF OURSELVES. WHAT WE SEE BAD IN SOMEONE ELSE IT IS NORMALLY BECAUSE WE SEE THAT IN OURSELVES.

WE NEED TO BUILD ONCE MORE ON SISTERHOOD, NEVER HAVE WE NEEDED IT MORE. WITH THE RECENT SPATE OF ATTACKS ON WOMEN IN THE NEWS AND DOMESTIC ABUSE ON THE RISE AND THE #METOO CAMPAIGN WE NEED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

SO THIS WEEK I WANT YOU TO CHECK YOURSELF EVERY TIME YOU ARE NEGATIVE ABOUT ANOTHER WOMEN EITHER SOMEONE YOU KNOW , A WORK COLLEAGUE SOMEONE IN THE MEDIA SPOTLIGHT OR EVEN ON TWITTER. IT IS TIME TO START BUILDING OTHER WOMEN UP.

OF COURSE I GET THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIKE EVERYONE, THEN AVOID THEM. OR IT MAYBE THAT THEY HAVE UPSET YOU , THEN DISCUSS WITH THEM , NOT AS A GROUP BEHIND THEIR BACK.

WE REALLY NEED TO CHANGE OUR BEHAVIOUR AS WOMEN TO WOMEN. FROM TODAY !

Or Get Him To Do Them For You !

DIRTY DISHES SITTING IN A SINK CAN BE REALLY ANNOYING. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LET THEM PILE UP. THEY CAN SIT THERE LOOKING AT YOU , MAKING YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE……..GETTING WORSE. THE LONGER YOU LEAVE THEM THE HARDER THEY ARE TO CLEAN. EVEN IN A DISHWASHER.

THE SAME IS TRUE WITH UNCOMFORTABLE ISSUES WE DON’T ADDRESS. UNKIND WORDS TO YOUR FRIENDS, A MOMENT OF INSENSITIVITY TO YOUR CHILD, A LIE TO YOUR PARTNER. WORDS ARE VERY POWERFUL THEY CAN STING OR SOOTHE, CREATE OR DESTROY. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS IDLE SPEECH.

TODAY , PONDER ON A SITUATION YOU HAVE LEFT TO FESTER. TODAY YOU WILL TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION JUST BY USING KIND WORDS AND ACTIONS. YOU MAY HAVE MORE THAN ONE ‘DIRTY’ SITUATION IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW BUT TODAY JUST CONCENTRATE ON ONE. WHEN YOU SEE WHAT A DIFFERENCE IT MAKES YOU WILL ENJOY CLEANING UP THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. A THOROUGH CLEAN IN TIME FOR THE SEASON OF GOODWILL.

AFTER ALL WE ALL LOVE AN EMPTY SINK AND A CUPBOARD FULL OF CLEAN DISHES.

This Bouquet Is For You ! You are Special x

YOU ARE SPECIAL !

Today i want you to remind yourself of how special you really are. Make a list of what makes you YOU. List all you positive attributes and characteristics. Your achievements and positive traits in your personality and your appearance. No , now don’t hold back you guys. Go for it! A good damn look at your specialities !

Isn’t it easy to list all our shortcomings and negative aspects of ourselves and our life. This then pushes us into a state of sadness, affects our motivation and holds us back in realising our dreams.

Imagine what you can achieve when you know how special you truly are !!!!!
