Nutrition Simplified!

With so many fad diets and philosophies on nutrition it may seem overwhelming to figure out what to eat. So I thought I would make it easy. If it comes from a box or package it is not real food and you can just avoid all of the items from this category. This means when you are at the grocery store you can just walk the perimeter where the “real” food is located. Continue reading

Pretty on the Inside ( my secret to anti-aging- Photos)

“Gratitude is a nice touch of beauty added last of all to the countenance, giving a classic beauty, an angelic loveliness, to the character. ”  Theodore Parker

I was a very young girl the first time I ever read this quote. I can still recall the feeing I had after I read these beautiful words. It was like a breath of fresh air, a sign from the universe or a ray of sunshine bursting through a cloudy day instilling a hopeful direction in which I chose to take.  And in retrospect, I am so “grateful” that I did do just that.

De-clutter challenge!

 get-attachment-2.aspx        

Summer is coming to end and its time to prepare for the Fall. This is a wonderful time to de-clutter your spaces. Get rid of all the things you no longer use or need and organize the rest. This will make you feel amazing.  It may seem like a daunting task, so just take it one space at a time. Maybe tackle some of the smaller spaces first. The idea is to have a clutter free home. Why your at it, you can throw away all that unhealthy food in the pantry and fridge and then restock with life enhancing foods. That’s another topic, so stay tuned as I will be discussing what foods to avoid and which ones to eat in a future post. Go through all your clothes and get rid of the items not being used. Organize your office by getting rid of outdated papers and storing the rest in filing cabinets or boxes. At my house, I took everything out my shed and organized it all, some of the stuff I am selling at a garage sale, the rest I will donate to charity, and whatever else is left I will dispose of at the dump. Enjoy the victory of completing one space as this will eventually turn into more and soon you will be basking in the glory of a clutter free environment. To make the tasks more enjoyable, I recommend listening to music,  singing or whistling. I can’t wait till I can open up the windows and let the Fall air in to enhance the freshness of my new de-cluttered home. I invite you to accept the de-clutter your space challenge. In the next week or two, you have to see how many of your spaces you can organize by reducing the clutter and maximizing the efficiency of the space. Simple. Well, what are you waiting for? Get to it!

I also recommend, a detox for each season. So my next post will be on detoxication. Stay tuned. and remember ” Be good to your body and your body will be good to you.” Jared
