Are Sweets on Your Diet Breakfast Menu?

As a healthy eater starting your day with a nutritious breakfast, are sweets on your breakfast menu? Here’s why they should be.  If you don’t have a problem keeping a healthy weight, then this won’t be as meaningful to you as to someone like me, who, well, let’s just say – struggles.

A new study published in the journal Steroids, shows fantastic results from a study done in Tel Aviv, which included a sweet treat on a low carbohydrate, high protein, 600 calorie breakfast. Results included excellent weight loss, and continued weight loss after the study was completed. [Read more…]

Early or Skipping Dinner Healthier for You?

Can eating an early dinner, or skipping dinner altogether, be healthier for you? A new study shows results that are significant for health benefits when you do so.

 

 

“The first human test of early time-restricted feeding found that this meal-timing strategy reduced swings in hunger and altered fat and carbohydrate burning patterns, which may help with losing weight. In early time-restricted feeding (eTRF), people eat their last meal by the mid-afternoon and don’t eat again until breakfast the next morning. The findings were unveiled during an oral presentation today at The Obesity Society Annual Meeting at ObesityWeek 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.”

7 Tips to Keep Your Skin Moist in Cold, Dry Weather

The winds are beginning to blow, and heaters are being turned on everywhere you go! Do you struggle with dry, flaking, itchy skin in the winter?

When that unpleasant chill hits the air, it’s time to get tips on how to keep your skin hydrated in the wintertime. Dryness can be uncomfortable, and it’s important to defend yourself against the elements in order to maintain smoothness and suppleness all season long. Keeping skin beautiful and hydrated in colder weather calls for both internal and external care.

Soft, hydrated skin!

Dry skin care tips for Morning

  • Wash your face with lukewarm water—not too hot and not too cold— to wake yourself up without drying the skin or constricting your pores.
  • Cleanse your skin with a sulfate-free cleanser. Sulfates are extremely drying and irritating to the skin. In addition, lathering bar soaps and strong foaming face washes strip the skin of its natural protective water and oils.  Celloxylin Step 1. Crème Cleanse!
    Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. As you probably already know, moisturizing is key for dry skin types. Apply your moisturizer right after cleansing to lock in the water before it evaporates. Look for a moisturizer with a broad spectrum SPF to protect against the sun’s damaging rays. Celloxylin Step 5. Day Defense Plus, Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Dry skin care tips for Day

  • Your skin will dry out as it’s exposed to the elements throughout the day. That’s why it’s important to re-apply moisturizer whenever you notice your skin becoming dry. Carry a moisturizer in your bag so you can dab a little on whenever necessary.  Celloxylin Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Lotion.
    Drink water. It may seem obvious, but sipping on water throughout the day naturally keeps your body— and by extension— your skin cells, hydrated.

Dry skin care tips for Night

  • At night, once again cleanse your skin of makeup and the day’s pollutants with a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser using lukewarm water
  • Immediately after, apply a heavier moisturizer or cream that will sink in throughout the night. Rich creams are dry skin’s best friend. Look for creams containing nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin or oils such as olive, and coconut oil. While these thicker lotions are too heavy for the day, the night gives your skin plenty of time to absorb all of their hydrating properties. Try our Celloxylin Step 5. Night Repair 3Deep!

Does Keys Creek Lavender Stress Relief Mist Really Work?

In a previous post titled “Ahhh Lavender!” I shared about my wonderful find in the Keys Creek Lavender Farm. One of my purchases was the Lavender Stress Relief Mist, which I’ve now had the delight to try out and I can truly say I LOVE it!

Keys Creek Lavender Stress Relief Mist!

One of the things I love about it is that when you spritz it on, the fragrance lasts for a long time, and it smells so very, very lavender, it is truly lovely. I take deep breaths in and enjoy it so much. Before I’ve even realized it, I’m snoozing, no matter how fast my thoughts are coming, or how many problems I’m trying to solve, or the hour of the night, it works before I’m  even are aware it’s working.

An example was the other night, when I had a few work things on my mind, good things which needed to have just the right sort of creativity to bring about my desired result. Creative juices flowed, even overflowed. Add to this that someone very dear to me decided to take a red eye flight across country. When my head met my pillow, dear one was 31,000 feet in the air. I wasn’t worried, but the thought of it was uncomfortable, and checking the flight tracker app on my phone from bed wasn’t as soothing as a lullaby, right?

So I spritzed a full spritz of my Keys Creek Lavender Stress Relief Spray and in no time I was fast asleep. Know how I knew it worked quickly? I woke up 5 hours later, just in time for dear one’s landing, watched the landing, did another spritz and, voila!, quickly back to sleep.

The best thing was I woke with no “cotton head” but a clear head and renewed energy for the day!

 

Flannel or Fleece Sheets?

Have any of you slept in flannel or fleece sheets? If so, how do you like them? What are the pros and cons of each? Sleep is so important to our health and beauty. It’s a big deal for me to be comfortable at night to help me drift off, and stay warm and cozy through the night to wake up refreshed and ready to meet each day.

The Value of a Vision

What is Your Vision?https://blog.intercom.com/why-startups-need-a-strong-vision/

My mind quickly conjures up a scene of a  watercolor artist sitting before an easel with a pure white canvas background. Brush in hand, colors and water jar ready, he sees the story he will tell with his strokes before the brush even touches the canvas. He knows the background colors he will use, where the focal point will be, and what the finished painting will look like.

Vision is very important to how we proceed in life, what we accomplish in the fruits of our labor and how we will be remembered. What we choose as a career, or not. Do we marry? How we raise our children and what the direction we point them in. How do we see our seasons of life? What does retirement look like? How do we weather the unexpected storms? Does our vision continue on without us, after we are gone?

I’m seeing fruits on different fronts, standing aside to watch seedlings bud and blossom, and creating new visions where life has provided an unexpected turn in the road.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs 29.18, a proverb of wise King Solomon. When we have a vision, we have a focus, a direction, a plan, a path and hope to see it come to pass.

 

Opportunity Knocks!

When opportunity knocks, will you answer or ignore it? If you really think about it, opportunity knocks every day. Today, I took an opportunity to meet someone new. I visited a new restaurant in my neighborhood and decided to sit on the counter. Soon after I was seated, another woman sat next to me. We started talking – that was the mutual opportunity seized by both of us!

Within a few minutes, we learned that we lived on the same street, but opposite ends. We both have 3 jobs, and we are both college professors. We had such a lovely time together, that when it came time for the check, out waitress thought we were together and gave us one check!

What opportunities are presenting themselves to you? I have one to share! I invite you to look at an opportunity to help women look more beautiful, to improve their self-confidence and health. AND, while you are beautifying the women around you, there is an opportunity to earn an income!

One Stop Ear Infection Treatment

Soon the days of fighting toddlers to get them to take their antibiotics for an earache will be over! A new form and method of a single application antibiotic gel, applied directly into the ear canal, has been shown to be a treat inner ear infections completely.

“A single-application bioengineered gel, squirted in the ear canal, could deliver a full course of antibiotic therapy for middle ear infections, making treatment of this common childhood illness much easier and potentially safer, finds a preclinical study led by Boston Children’s Hospital in collaboration with investigators at Boston Medical Center and Massachusetts Eye and Ear. The findings were published September 14, by the journal Science Translational Medicine.”

Ahhhh, Lavender!

I love lavender for it’s soothing, calming properties. Are you seeing it popping up everywhere? In soaking salts, sleep mists, oils, and food, lavender is sneaking into our daily lives and providing a lovely peace to it!

Looking for a lavender farm to visit earlier this spring, I began an online search for ones nearby. The one I kept going back to and fell in love with is Keys Creek Lavender Farm in Valley Center, California. I have still to visit, but I recently purchased some of their lovely products.

Health and Beauty Benefits of Raw Honey

I’ve been reading here and there about the health and beauty benefits of raw honey. In particular of interest to me have been the antimicrobial and healing properties raw honey provides.

http://honeyfanatic.com/1341/but-i-really-dont-like-honey/

If you’re interested in the culinary attributes of honey, Bev, from her blog “Honey Fanatic” shares the many flavorful and palate enhancing nuances of honey. I never knew there was so much to know about honey!

For personal care uses of raw honey, the site  Personal Care Truth  shares why honey lasts forever, and how to use it to enhance your beauty. Great article written by one of their cosmetic chemists, Lise M. Andersen.

If you try a honey masque, let me know how you liked it!

My Peaceful Place

Need to find your peaceful place? When things start swirling around faster and faster, I begin to stress and sigh more. That’s when I know I need to find a peaceful place, for my heart, my mind, and my spirit. Today, I knew I needed to find mine. I like the mountains, as they help me know there is someone bigger than I am, who has everything under control.

The Italian Dolomites

Twice today, this Bible verse, found in the Isaiah 26.3, came across in my readings: “Thou shalt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.” KJV

Another translation:

“People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit. Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing.” The Message translation.

He is my sure thing. I hope this helps you find peace in the midst of your storm today.

11 More Tips for a Successful Interview

I’m conducting interviews right now, looking to add a partner with whom to share my day to day responsibilities, evening and weekend call. The job description I created states clearly what the position entails and the qualifications / qualities of the successful candidate are.

Now that a few candidates have been interviewed, I thought it might be a good time to add to my previous post sharing “Tips for Success in Your Job Interview”.

http://www.southafrica.jobs-employment.com/2016/03/06/steps-to-a-successful-job-interview/

  1. Re and ReRead the Job Description. I highly recommend studying the job description, and visualizing yourself in the role. This provides a greater understanding of the point of view interview questions will be coming from, and allow you time to think of clarifying questions. You might also do an online search for descriptions of similar roles and how they function.
  2. Proofread your resume and cover letter for typos and grammar errors. Have someone who is a proficient writer also review and edit for clarity and polish. A good cover letter goes a long way in preceding your first personal meeting with a glimpse of your personality, intelligence, character, and heart.
  3. Come with additional resumes, letters of recommendation, or anything you think might be beneficial, but not overwhelming, to a first and second round interview. Offer them only if you see that it would be useful to do so, such as if there are interviewers present who have not seen your resume, you may offer them a copy.
  4. Jot down questions to bring with you to the interview. Practice these questions on someone who will provide honest and professional feedback. A question like “Why should I work for you?” may not be received very well if delivered in an overly confident way. Perhaps something along the line of “This position is of great interest to me. What will you offer as support for the new team member?”
  5. Really listen to the questions being asked and answer the question. If you don’t fully understand what is being asked, repeat the question in a little different way for clarification. Better ask for clarification than to respond to something that wasn’t being asked. Also, listen to what the interviewers are seeking to know. If you are asked how quickly you can arrive if called in, give the time it would take you if you hung up the phone and hopped in your car immediately. Then, follow up with a confirmation question asking what would be an acceptable length of time for arrival, in case you weren’t coming from home, you would know how far away you could be while on call.
  6. If you haven’t interviewed in awhile, by all means, practice with someone. Better yet, have them record your practice, and review how you come across together.
  7. When you’re asked to tell about yourself as the first question, you don’t want to spew volumes of your work history in great detail. Practice beforehand giving a one minute overview, highlighting accomplishments which would speak for your competence in the position you are interviewing for.
  8. While handshakes are good coming and going, they aren’t always necessary, and one that is too strong might not be received very well. If you’re going to shake hands, do so with the key interviewers.
  9. Always ask what the next steps will be, and the time frame for them. You may be the first to be interviewed, of which the first round process may take a few weeks. It’s good to know if you will be waiting a couple of weeks to hear for a second round interview, and who the second round will be with, so you can begin preparing right away. Make sure you let them know you are very interested in the position (if you still are) at the end of the conversation.
  10. Push in your chair once you have stood to leave. Thank the interviewers for their time, let them know it was a pleasure to meet them, and you look forward to hearing from them soon.
  11. Just like a good cover letter, a good thank you email later that day or the next morning will help solidify positive feelings about you, granted the interview went well. An excellent email thank you doesn’t require following with a handwritten note, unless it is of value as a function of the position.

Good luck!

If any of my tips help you, please come back to let me know!

Treat Depression by Correcting Metabolic Imbalances

The mental health of children and adolescents is now on the forefront of medical providers who are seeing an increase in depression and suicide ideation. With early intervention, many are helped through cognitive behavioral therapy, together with mindfulness stress reduction, regular exercise and alternative therapies like acupuncture and yoga, hoping to avoid medication unless necessary.

http://www.sarahchanaradcliffe.com/helping-depressed-child/

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have completed an interesting study of young people with significant depression who are not responding to therapy and medication.

“Identifying and treating metabolic deficiencies in patients with treatment-resistant depression can improve symptoms and in some cases even lead to remission, according to new research from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine published online today in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
