Healthy Breakfast for the Family

Healthy Breakfast for the Family

If you have a healthy lifestyle then you probably have a happy home, because they go together.   I describe a happy home as a place where the heart is.  It’s a place where you feel comfortable, and where you know everyone else there feels comfortable too.  There is peace and a feeling of security.  There is a calm atmosphere.  Everyone feels respected and cared for.  It’s clean and orderly, and the family does it’s best to keep toxins out.  There are healthy foods and snacks, and healthy eating routines.  So, how do healthy lifestyles and happy homes go together?

Healthy Lifestyles and Happy Homes Go Together

Your home can be the actual, physical building, or what goes on inside the walls.   The actual building, your home, has to be bought first, moved into and organized.   Then all the happy family members have to work together to keep it clean.  Think about what all of this means.  Moving into a new home is a time consuming, stressful and often frustrating experience.  There are tons of deadlines.  The paperwork and steady stream of necessary appointments is constant.  How do you cope?

How To Cope

You live well. You get enough sleep and try to help others in your family do the same.  You eat well.  You make sure you have healthy food handy and healthy snacks available to fill in the gaps.  You use non-toxic cleaners and time-saving products to quickly wipe up spills and mishaps.  You take a few minutes each day, even through all the stress and confusion to do some exercises and take a family walk.  You care for your spiritual health by reading, listening to or watching something positive and encouraging each day.  What does this do?

What Living Well Does

It reduces stress, which helps you and your entire family deal with the situation calmly.  This helps you stay healthy because the stress that could be taking it’s toll on your body isn’t taking it’s toll on your body.  So you remain strong and able to cope. Since you are remaining calm, there are no, or less, angry outbursts at family members, which also contributes to the peace in the family.  Everybody is getting it through it.   Yay!

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more tips on living well, healthy lifestyles and happy homes.

Change The Channel of Unhealthy Habits

 

Changing unhealthful habits need not be difficult. While it is true that some extra effort, time and expense may be involved at first, the long-term benefits make it all worthwhile. Consider how eating processed foods every day, never exercising, smoking or over-drinking, not getting enough sleep, over-spending, neglecting spiritual needs or not keeping ourselves and our living conditions clean affect us. Each of these things in themselves can wreak havoc on a person, and much more so when they are combined, which is oftentimes the case.

Making some simple adjustments can help greatly in changing unhealthful habits. Changing long standing, unhealthy habits even a little, may seem impossible and leave you with the feeling that you can’t do it. You can! By working on one thing at time, you will find that changes begin to take place. Those changes may be almost unnoticeable at first, but they will affect the other areas in your life, and you will reap the benefits. Don’t give up.

If you are looking to make adjustments in one of these areas, I would be happy to see if I can help in that area. I am not a health coach. My mentoring consists of opening membership accounts and training on products and services. However, much of my mentoring overlaps into these areas.

ClipartManThinking 6-8-18

We all have the ability to think in various capacities. With that ability comes the responsibility to take in knowledge, analyze it, draw conclusions, remember it, use it again to make decisions, etc. There are things we can do protect our thinking ability. Here are three ways:

  1. Be careful what knowledge you take in. Not all knowledge is accurate, so it is possible to analyze and mediate upon inaccurate knowledge. Do your research and only spend your valuable thinking ability on accurate, correct and good things.

  2. Keep your thinking ability active. Keep learning, no matter how old you are.

  3. Be willing to accept new ideas and adjust your thinking when necessary.

It is also possible for our thinking ability to be affected by stress, lack of sleep, mental and emotional distress, health and many other things. For instance, those of us with fibromyalgia may find ourselves coping with brain fog which affects our ability to think clearly. For that reason, it is also important to take good care of our health. Three ways to protect our thinking ability in this way are:

  1. Get enough sleep. Most people need between 8 and 10 hours of sleep each night to be able to think clearly and wisely.

  2. Control your stress levels. Excess and continued stress is dangerous and can interfere with your ability to think with a clear mind.

  3. Eat healthy. Get the necessary nutrients your body and brain need to function at the best level they can. Take good nutritional supplements and eat balanced, nutritious meals. Take your time choosing and eating delicious and healthy food.

These are just a few examples of what you can do to protect your thinking ability. When you are looking for healthy, effective and unique nutritional supplements to help with that balance, I would be happy to show you about the ones my family and I use.
