Clutter Drains Energy!

Clutter at home, in your office, garage, email inbox, purse, car or any where in your surroundings will drain your energy.

Ways to Get Organized

As you go through your clutter, separate it into categories such as what you will sell, donate, give to others or throw out.

Pay attention!

Most house fires start in the kitchen. Make sure you don't get distracted while cooking and leave food unattended. Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen.

Stressed? Try This!

According to Dr. Allen Elkin; when you feel yourself getting stressed, touch your thumb to any finger on the same hand and press them together, hard. As you do this, take a deep breath through your nose. Hold that breath for about 5 seconds. Then, part your lips slightly and exhale. Release your fingers as you imagine a wave of relaxation spreading from the top of your heat to the tip of your toes.

Rebound While You Watch TV!

A rebounder or mini-trampoline is a fun form of exercise that is very effective at pumping your lymph fluid through your body.  For those youngsters who are sitting too much, a rebounder is great while they watch TV.

The Power of Community

"The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic or hospital."
Dr. Mark Hyman

Breathe While Strength Training!

It is important to breathe while strength training. Exhale during the hardest part of the exercise to allow you to push your way through.

We Are Made of 60% Water!

Water makes up about 60% of your body weight. It is essential for life and important to detoxify your body.

How Much is Enough?

Most people need to drink about half their body weight in ounces of water for adequate hydration. For example if you weigh 160 pounds, you would drink about 80 ounces of water daily.

Drink Your Water! Drink Enough!

You may need to increase water intake depending on how much you exercise, the climate you live in, your health condition and if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

What Does a Chiropractor Do?

A chiropractor uses spinal manipulation to restore mobility to joints. A chiropractor can help relieve pain in muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments and tendons.

You Live With Your Thoughts

"You live with your thoughts, so be careful what they are." Eva Arrington

Set goals!

Setting goals that you are excited about accomplishing will invigorate and motivate you to reach those goals.

Create a Healthy Lifestyle!

Creating a healthy lifestyle requires commitment, persistence and patience to find what works best for you.

Craving Food Between Meals?

If you are trying to lose weight, but find yourself craving food between meals, distract yourself by calling a friend, running an errand, exercising, organizing so that you focus on something else until the craving subsides.

Pay Attention to What Drains Your Energy!

Notice what drains your energy and what increases it. Take small steps to reduce the things that drain your energy and do more of what increases your energy.
