What you do first thing in the morning sets your tone for the day. The first thing you see. The first thing that hits your nose. The first thing that hits your nervous system. I encourage you to evaluate your morning practice and view it from the lens of your 5 senses.
Hear. Taste. Touch. Smell. See.
Hearing: Maybe try THIS.
Taste: Try a full glass of water.
Touch: Consider touching your heart.
Smell: Try something relaxing such as lavender.
See: Consider using the mirror 🙂

Omega 3 fatty acids, commonly known as fish oil, are foundational building blocks to so many of the cells in our body. Numerous studies show that regular ingestion of omega-3s can influence cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune and hormone health. I know there are many of us who will seek out ways to include foods such as salmon or scallops in our diet as frequently as we can. However, there are other ways to get these essential nutrients in our diet if your tastes are more toward the “turf” side.
First, let’s break down omega 3 oils further and look at the ways they support our bodies. Omega 3 fatty acids include alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
- EPA and DHA especially are crucial building blocks for the structure of all our cell membranes. DHA is used in high amounts in the retina, brain and sperm.
- EPA and DHA are components of hormones that regulate clotting, contraction and relaxation of arterial walls as well as inflammation.
- DHA is important in brain and eye development and function, especially in infants.
- DHA influences numerous aspects of brain function, including attention and problem solving.
- ALA is a precursor to EPA and DHA and can be converted, primarily by our liver. But this process is limited, with conversion rates of less than 15%. Otherwise, ALA is stored or used for energy by the body.
In the coming weeks we will discuss in more detail how regular omega 3 ingestion can influence our health, as well as where we can get optimal sources for quality EPA, DHA and ALA.
