8 Summer Steps for Healthy Living

June 22, 2016

8 Summer Steps for Healthy Living

1. Give Your Diet a Berry Boost.  If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries — blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries — every day. They’ll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses. Blueberries and blackberries are especially antioxidant-rich.

2. Get Dirty — and Stress Less To improve your stress level, plant a small garden, cultivate a flower box, or if space is really limited, plant a few flower pots — indoors or out.

3. Floss Daily. You know you need to, now it’s time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the beach (in a secluded spot), while reading on your patio, or when watching TV — and the task will breeze by.

4. Get Outside to Exercise. Pick one outdoor activity — going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming — to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.

5. Be Good to Your Eyes. To protect your vision at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. Sunglasses can help prevent cataractscataracts, as well as wrinkles around the eyes.

6. Vacation Time! Improve your heart health: take advantage of summer’s slower schedule by using your vacation time to unwind.

7. Alcohol: Go Lite. Summer’s a great time to skip drinks with hard alcohol and choose a light, chilled alcoholic beverage (unless you are pregnant or should not drink for health or other reasons).

8. Sleep Well. Resist the urge to stay up later during long summer days. Instead pay attention to good sleep hygiene by keeping the same bedtime and wake-up schedule and not drinking alcohol within three hours of bedtime.

Eating Healthy Affect Your Physical, Mental & Social Health

How Does Eating Healthy Affect Your Physical, Mental & Social Health?
by Sara Tomm, Demand Media

“Food powers your life. It fuels all bodily processes that enable you to move, think and breathe. There is no aspect of your life that is not influenced by what you eat. Fueling your body with processed food, fast food, sugar, fat and calorie-dense food affects who you are, what you do and your ability to pursue your dreams and aspirations. Food is that powerful – use it to your advantage.”

Conscious Parenting – Who’s in Your Village?

January 23, 2016

Conscious Parenting – Who is in Your Village?
by Traci Carman | Jul 18, 2013

“Most of us have heard the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child” and it is so true. Periodically, it is a good idea to take inventory of your “village” to see how strong and supportive it is. Summer is a wonderful time to do that, and to make any necessary adjustments.

Here are three simple tips to help:”

1.    “Energy. Of those you spend time with, who contributes to your energy so that you walk away refreshed and feeling supported? Who detracts from it? For your children, who of their friends would you consider to be a positive and healthy influence? Who is not?…”

2.    “Character. What character traits are important to you? What would you desire to instill in your children? That is reflected in who you associate with. It is also reflected in who your children associate with…”

3.    “Non-Judgment. While we want to teach our children to be discerning, it is also important to teach our children not to be judgmental; it’s good that people are different. There are certain behaviors, people and things we may want in our lives, and there are other behaviors, people and things we would prefer not to have…”

3 Simple Steps to Change your Energy

 March 14, 2015

1) “Change your Environment: One of the easiest things you can do to transform your energy is to make changes to your environment!

If the energy of a past relationship still lingers in your home, causing you grief and sadness, change things up! Get yourself a brand new comforter, some brightly colored throw pillows you love and paint the walls. Bring in fresh flowers, play a completely new kind of music and declutter. Hang new photos and buy yourself new dishes.”   Keep Reading 

2) “Change your Location – This is all about mixing things up and creating a new environment for yourself. Sure, sometimes it might mean moving to a new job or apartment, but it doesn’t have to be a big to-do!

Start taking the peaceful, scenic route home from work. Maybe instead of heading straight home, you stop off at the gym, a coffee shop or a friend’s house. Instead of shopping at the same grocery store, mix it up and hit a different brand name or just visit another neighborhood’s farmer’s market.”  Keep Reading 

3) “Change your Location – This is about more than just “think happy thoughts,” though I highly recommend you practice positive thinking. It’s about creating the space and opportunity for new ideas and growth. Growth forces us to release limiting beliefs and try out new ways of thinking, being and processing our world.”   Keep Reading 


12 Things every Guy Should Master to Become a Real Man

 February 28, 2015

12 things every guy should master to become a real man | March 3, 2011 By Atalwin Pilon

1) Be fearless – Being fearless does not mean being without fear, being fearless means admitting your fears and going beyond them.

2) Be resilient – A man should be flexible and reliable at the same time.

3) Live, speak and listen from the heart – A real man doesn’t hide his feelings and intentions. He is not afraid to be gentle nor afraid to be sad.

4) Own your anger – A real man owns his anger. His anger has transformed into masculine compassion. He can be angry, strong, decisive and courageous.

5) Own your anger – Try not to become a man of success, try to become a man of value.

6) Own your edge – This life is a journey and we all are somewhere on our path. A real man is honest about where he is at in his development.

7) Be vulnerable –  A coward is always trying to hide his weak spots, a real man works on them.

8) Make love passionately – A real man does not hold back. When he makes love he opens up to all his rawness and all his tenderness and he gives his woman everything he has got.

9) Practice a martial art – When push comes to shove every man should be able to defend his wife, children and honor.

10) Have a sense of humor –  (don’t take yourself so fucking seriously)

11) Own your edge – A real man can hold both the utter importance and the utter unimportance of life at the same time. He can see his own failures and flaws and joke about that. Since he knows his self image is just an image he feels no need to defend that image.

12) Be real – In the end a real man knows that he is just a guy. He does all these things because that’s what he is: a man. He likes hanging out with other men, he might drink beer during football, he loves his woman and he works wholeheartedly.

5 Side Effects of Kindness on Health

 February 11, 2015

5 Side Effects of Kindness on Health

1) Kindness Makes us Happier – When we do something kind for someone else, we feel good.

2) Kindness Gives us Healthier Hearts – Acts of kindness are often accompanied by emotional warmth.

3) Kindness Slows Aging – Aging on a biochemical level is a combination of many things, but two culprits that speed the process are Free Radicals and Inflammation, both of which result from making unhealthy lifestyle choices.

4) Kindness Makes for Better Relationships –  This is because kindness reduces the emotional distance between two people and so we feel more ‘bonded.

5) Kindness is Contagious – When we’re kind we inspire others to be kind and studies show that it actually creates a ripple effect that spreads outwards to our friends’ friends’ friends – to 3-degrees of separation.

“Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t just will yourself to “snap out of it,” but you do have some control—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. The key is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day.”  Read More
