One of the definitions of ‘challenge’ in Mirriam-Webster is, “to arouse or stimulate especially by presenting with difficulties.” That’s the definition I’m using for this post, not because I want to encourage people to present their health with difficulties, but because I want to encourage people to stimulate their routines to change for the better, for their health. Make sense?

Stay on top of your health. Take your vitamins. Get into or improve your routine. Take your omega 3′s and 6′s. Get into or improve your routine. Take your probiotics. Get into or improve your routine. Take your antioxidants. Get into or improve your routine. Take your anti-inflammation blend. Get into or improve your routine. Exercise. Get into or improve your routine. Get enough sleep. Get into or improve your routine. 

Get the point? Get the point.

Let’s keep up the challenge to live healthy lifestyles.

Gearing up for Fall Cleaning

Time to Prepare for Fall Cleaning

Time to Prepare for Fall Cleaning

It’s August. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to plan for what I want to accomplish when I do my fall cleaning. I have learned that I have to start planning early and writing things down so I can remember everything when it comes time to do it. So many times, I thought I would remember what I needed and wanted to do, but that didn’t happen.

Here are some things I will be doing: going through some old boxes I never unpacked, cleaning the stairs banister which goes up the stairs and along the loft are where my office is located, and around on the other side, makes this cool curve where there’s a little niche. I’ll be going through closets and drawers and getting rid of clothes we haven’t worn in a year.

Cleaning the Banister

Cleaning the Banister

I’ll wash walls and clear cob and dust webs. I think I’ll give myself a week (maybe two) to get this done. If that seems like a long time to some, to me, it’s not at all.

For some of this, I’ll need to stock up on my cleaning products. Because I’m so sensitive to scents and chemicals, I’ll make sure to purchase my favorite non-toxic cleaning stuff. For the walls, I’ll use an all-purpose cleaner which is toxic free, has no bleach, no ammonia and no strong scents. It works really well for the banister too.

This is therapeutic for me when I take enough time and prepare for it. Then I’m not stressed out and hurried over it. I have arthritis which acts up sometimes when I’m doing more than normal, like a special project, so I’m going to get my compression garments ready too. When my hands, arms or legs start to ache, I’ll put those on to help. 10% discount code for InstantRecoveryMD

We’ve already been going through a lot of boxes and old papers around here anyway, and it feels so good to be cleaning everything out and getting some things in order. I’ve done garage sales and it will still be kind of hot when I do my fall cleaning, but I always have my ‘virtual garage‘ for those times.

I’m even thinking about doing some re-decorating. I’m getting so many ideas that I don’t have enough time to do all the things I want to do. I need eternity.

Well, I’ll keep you posted on how this comes along. :) Cheers. Thanks for reading.

People who suffer with arthritis, either a little or a lot, need some exercise to help keep their joints moving. It is crucial, or they will ‘freeze’ up.

It is important to be aware of what kind of exercise to do and how much for your particular artriitis condition. You can hurt yourself if you do the wrong kind or too much.

Check with your doctor or physical therapist.

The Mayo Clinic says exercise, “… increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue.

Get some today. Exercise, that is. Eat right, take vitamins and nutritional supplements for more support, keep your immune system strong, drink lots of water, use orthopedic aids and keep moving.
