Did you know…?

We all want a healthy body! And many of us spend our lives jumping from diet to diet forgetting the importance of muscle. For every extra pound of muscle we add to our bodies we lose an extra 50 calories a day whether we are active or not.  For a healthy body, make sure to build muscle as well as lose fat.

Have you ever tried…?

Blueberries to reduce inflammation. Blueberries contain antioxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is now thought to be one of the main causes in certain diseases like diabetes and cancer. These antioxidants also fight off free radicals which can leave the skin looking and feeling younger as healthy cells begin to regain control over the free radical producing cells.  Considering it is fruit so it’s nice and healthy we think it’s worth a try!

Thought of the Month….

….. that when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is not beneficial to go out and build more tunnel.

It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do that.

Maybe you’ve caught yourself doing it, too.

Just when things look like they’re getting better, you start seeing more things that “aren’t right,” or “could go wrong.”

The Universe is essentially a friendly place.

So friendly, in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect it to.

Isn’t that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what you expect…

Neale Donald Walsch

Did you know…?

Your makeup will last longer and will look much better if you apply it when your skin is slightly moist. If you apply foundation to dry skin, it will not smooth out well, nor will it blend well. Dry patches of skin disrupt your blending and give you those funny blotchy patches. If you spritz lightly with water then gently pat dry with a tissue you should have the perfect base to apply makeup over.

That said; make sure to give your face a few minutes in between applying your moisturiser and your foundation. Most moisturisers are designed to soak deep into your skin to really nourish the bottom layers of your skin. If you apply your foundation directly after this, it will get drawn deeply into your skin with the moisturiser. This is obviously not good! Your foundation will literally ‘disappear’ and your pores will end up clogged!

The best thing to do is:

1. Cleanse

2. Apply your normal treatment and moisturisers

3. Wait 5-10 minutes for these to soak in

4. Lightly mist your face with water and pat dry with a tissue

5. Apply your foundation

6. Enjoy fabulous makeup!

Have you ever tried…?

Vaseline – When it comes to dealing with the labours of foot work, the cracked heel has to be the most disconcerting. No pedicure or beautiful sandal can make up for that dried skin on the back of your foot. In order to treat cracked heels quickly and easily, many doctors recommend old fashioned Vaseline. Applying Vaseline to the foot before bed and covering with a sock will allow the petroleum jelly time to soak into the cracks of the foot. Over a few short days, you will see a substantial change in the way your foot looks and feels.

Thought of the Month….

…that you must be good to yourself if you are ever going to be any good for others. 

This means take a day off once in a while when it’s not scheduled.  Eat of piece of chocolate when it’s not recommended.  Take a nap when it’s just not possible. Get your face into a good book for an hour when you can’t afford to. Soak in a tub when there’s no time to. Stop everything when you’re not supposed to. Do this now, right now.

Neale Donald Walsch

Did you know…?

Olive oil could also be your best friend when shaving because it can cause hair to stand on end. It works wonders to bring the hairs of the leg to attention. To give it a try when shaving, apply the olive oil directly to the leg and work into the skin for a few moments. Shave as usual, then notice how close the shave is with this natural oil.

Have you ever tried…?

Aspirin to remove underarm stains. Aspirin is known as the perfect headache relief medicine, but it also holds power over perspiration stains. When the underarms of your favorite white shirt has lost that bright, white luster try using aspirin to remove the sweat stains. Simply crush two aspirin and mix with a bit of water. Soak the stained area for three hours and launder as usual.

Thought of the Month….

…that virtue cannot separate itself from realitywithout becoming a principle of evil.

Albert Camus said that, and he was right. When we become too virtuous, when we think ourselves to be oh, so right, we become dangerous to ourselves and others.

Be careful of those who imagine themselves to be on the High Road while everyone else is walking the Low. If they really are on the High Road, they will offer to take everyone else with them, not simply tell others that they are going the wrong way.

Did you know…?

 

Essential fatty acids need to be balanced in the body. Research shows that many people have far too many Omega 6s and not enough Omega 3s. The best source is apparently NOT fish oil, however. Flaxseed oil has a more concentrated source of Omega 3s than fish oil … and without the fishy taste! The flaxseed oil can be sprinkled on salad to increase the anti-inflammatory response in the body. This can decrease the effect of allergies on the body and decrease the risk of developing inflammation based conditions like diabetes and arthritis.

 

Have you ever tried…?

 

Snacking on nuts. A few handfuls of raw nuts as a snack food can be really satisfying. Why? Because the protein and fat in them not only satisfy the hunger, but give energy in abundance. Add to this most nuts contain potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, zinc, vitamin E, selenium, copper, calcium and thiamine. Have a handful of nuts every afternoon and you’ll get a variety of important vitamins and minerals.

 
Thought of the Month….
…that there is a solution. There is. But you must keep going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up.
This is about more than just patience. This is about more than just persistence. This is about absolute knowing that you are able to find a solution with faith.
When you know this, you never give up…and the sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving forward knowing that, in the end, all will work out.
And that along the way there will be great insights and wonderful remembering.

Did you know…?

Dehumidifiers Reduce Dust Mites. Are you allergic to dust and cannot figure out how to eliminate it from the home? A dehumidifier can do the job. Dust mites cannot live below 45% humidity. So, running a dehumidifier set at 40% will begin to eliminate dust mites from the home. Another top tip is before starting the machine for the first time, vacuum all the carpets and upholstery in the house and change all bed linens. These are prime sources of dust mites and the linens can trap moisture.

Have you ever tried…?
Apples to Decrease Respiratory Problems. Apples are a wonderful source of flavonoids. Flavonoids are like vitamins for the lungs. Eating just one apple, a couple of times a week can reduce the chances of coming down with a respiratory cold by up to 32%. Apple cider has more than two times the flavonoids of apple juice, so sip and enjoy.

Thought of the Month….

..that if you become ruffled with every comment that you consider a ‘slight,’ you will never find peace.

Nor will you find it by always separating yourself from those who ruffle you. You can only end so many friendships before you find yourself very much alone.

You can keep making new friends, of course, but sooner or later they will ruffle you — and then what?

Perhaps the better course might be to let the ruffle go. People rarely mean it when they do that, and a touch of gentle tolerance and easy forgiveness every day is even better than an apple…

Did you know…?

There are lots of little things you can do at home to help get rid of your cellulite.

– Use an exfoliating sponge in the shower. This will stimulate blood flow to your skin and help increase circulation to carry away the cellulite
– Massage your fatty tissue areas daily to break up the fat
– Wear body-shaping pantyhose that contour your thighs to compress the fat and help with circulation.
– Reduce your intake of caffeine and quit smoking.
– Increase your water intake.

Depending on your body type and skin shape, your cellulite may never completely disappear but you can help it along!

Have you ever tried…?
Socks to Cure Insomnia. When the body gets cold, the heat is all reserved for the core of the body. This leaves feet feeling chilly and increases the chance of waking up in the middle of the night. Slipping into some warm, fuzzy socks just 20 minutes before bed can decrease the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and stop those mid-night wake-up sessions that leave you foraging for sweets and unhealthy snacks.

Thought of the Month….

…..that love is sometimes shown in the things you don’t say, don’t keep track of, and don’t notice.

 

The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go.

 

None of us is perfect, but we can all be perfect friends and perfect partners by allowing those that we love to be imperfect.

 

Give those around you the “break” that you hope the world will give you on your own “bad day” and you’ll never, ever regret it.

Did you know…?

Peanut Butter (Soy Butter / Almond Butter / Nutella) Can Cure Hiccups. At first, hiccups are fun and then they move to annoying. When you cannot break the hiccups, try eating a thick nut butter like peanut butter. Place one large tablespoon in the mouth and hold for 10 seconds. Then, try to swallow the butter whole. The hiccups will stop every time…. so they say!

Have you ever tried…?

Herbs and Vitamins for hair loss. Men and women alike lose hair as they age. For some people, this hair loss becomes noticeable before they would like it to. While a healthy diet and good hydration are key to keeping hair full and intact – there are a few vitamins and herbs that can boost the fullness and root health of the hair. These vitamins and herbs include Vitamin A, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Flaxseed Oil, Zinc, Biotin and Vitamin B50

Thought of the Month….

…that love is the centre and the core of everything, and that Self is the place where all love must begin.

Those who love others grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high toleration and acceptance of themselves.

You cannot show another a part of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin: with the person in the mirror.

Will you not love yourself grandly today? For the world’s sake?

Neale Donald Walsch

Did you know…?

Facial scrubs do not have to empty the wallet. Most facial scrubs are very similar to cleansers but with some kind of abrasive or exfoliating agent.  Which means if you’ve not yet picked up a scrub that is suitable for your skin but you want an exfoliator, try making your own – just add a pinch of sugar to the palm of your hand and mix with your cleanser. Try a small test patch and then apply to the face & neck in small circular motions then wash off.

Have you ever tried…?

Sandalwood Oil for a Chest Cold? Sandalwood is a natural oil that can help relieve chest congestion during a cold or flu. All you have to do is rub the oil on the skin or create a compress from warm oil or cold oil and apply to the chest area. The congestion will fade away, naturally.

Thought of the Month….

…….that everything is perfect Right Here, Right Now. And Right Here Right Now is all there is.

Forget about the past. It does not exist, except in your memory. Drop it. And stop worrying about how you’re going to get through tomorrow. Life is going on Right

Here, Right Now — pay attention to that and all will be well.

Embrace the present moment with gratefulness and wonder, and you will turn it into whatever you have been waiting for.

Did you know…?

We are busy people.  Some of us get very little respite from our busy days. We work, plan, socialise, meet, cater, parent, befriend, chat, run errands, oh this list is endless!

We need time for ourselves, as without it we can feel frustrated, tired, overwhelmed and out of balance. So take 15 minutes a day to just do something that you want to do. Be with yourself. Have a cup of tea, tend to the garden, go for a walk, have a bath, listen to music… whatever you want to do as long as it is for you and with just you.

Also if you are finding yourself overwhelmed and frustrated take a five minute breather from it all. Spend five minutes just relaxing and focusing on your breath, clear your mind and try to rebalance yourself. Give it a try! See if it makes any differences in the way you face your day.

Have you ever tried…?

Banana Peels to treat poison ivy… there is nothing worse than working in the garden only to hit that patch of poison ivy. The oils of the poison ivy plant quickly cause an itchy, burning rash sure to spread all over the body. When the skin calls for relief, bananas can help. No, you do not eat the bananas.  Instead you rub the inside of the peel all over the skin. The banana and the oils of the peel relieve the itchy feeling and help the rash to clear up almost instantly. For added benefit, the banana peel works on bug bites too!

Banana skins can remove a splinter. If you have a splinter in any part of the body, a small piece of banana skin can work out that splinter overnight. It does not matter what type of splinter you have – it could be metal, glass or wood – banana skins have been known to pull splinters out overnight. To try simply cut a small piece of banana skin and apply to the area of the skin where the splinter is located. Cover with a band aid and wait. In the morning, the splinter will be ready to be removed. If the splinter is very deep, more than one application may be needed or you may need to see our doctor

Thought of the Month….

……. that tomorrow is the most important day of your life.

Your greatest moment, your greatest achievement, your greatest adventure lies in the future, never in the past.

There is a new you waiting to be created tomorrow. That is the joy and wonder of the dawn. That is the excitement of it!

Forget about yesterday! What is the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever held about Who You Are going to be tomorrow? That is the only question that matters.

Did you know…?

How can we tell if we are putting strain on our bodies by walking incorrectly? Well here’s a great quick way to assess yourself… Walk directly towards a full length mirror and observe the following:

* Your knees are pointing forward.

* Your hips are level.

* Your arms swing rhythmically as you walk.

* Both sides of your body are symmetrical (arm swing, step length, etc).

* You are walking tall (e.g. your head is erect and your ears are directly above your shoulders).

Now walk alongside a full length mirror and observe the following:

* Your heel makes contact with the floor first on each step.

* You can feel the pressure roll up to the toes as you push off from the floor.

* Your knee is almost fully extended before your heel contacts the floor.

* Your steps are of equal length.

* Your ears are directly above your shoulders and your body is upright.

Have you ever tried…?

Cucumbers – Another great at home treatment for large pores includes the use of cucumber. Cucumber has been used in soaps, lotions and masks for many years and offers a cooling sensation and a natural cleansing agent. A paste created from crushed cucumber, a few teaspoons of lemon and a touch of rose water is a great addition to any skin regime. This paste should be wrapped in a fabric facial cleanser and applied to the entire face. After the skin has dried, rinse away the “soap” with warm water and you will have cleaner, healthier skin.

Thought of the Month….

…….that every day is a new beginning, and that nothing from yesterday has to affect who you are today.

It does no good at all to bemoan what you may have done on a day prior to today — or even, for that matter, a moment ago. You don’t have to carry that into the Present Moment, nor is your guilt about it going to do you any good at all.

Simply resolve to become a different version of your self right here, right now. Use yesterday to inspire tomorrow, not to discourage it.
