No more yeast to promote a healthier digestive track!

If you have problems with common yeast infections, depression, anxiety, thrush, and cannot lose weight, keeping the yeast away might help. If you have been a person that has been on antibiotics for long periods of time, then your body may not have been able to stop some of your good yeast from turning into a fungus in your digestive system.

Maintain Soft Hair and Skin with Coconut Oil

Use Coconut oil for hair and skin: I put 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil to about a cup of my hair conditioner inside a bottle. Then I put it in my hair and on my skin. It hasn't made my hair oily either, but instead, leaves it very soft and supple. After I applied the coconut oil conditioner to my hair (and left it in and didn't wash out) I curled it in sponge curlers before bed then when I woke up, I had softly coiled hair. Very nice hair and pretty style if curled right.

Make a veggie, fruit, and protein drink to get all nutrients easily without eating three squares a day.

To stay healthy, I mix in a blender two fruits, two veggies, or even five sometimes, pinto beans (protein), one egg (protein), a sugar substitute, and greens. This makes about 2 cups.

Instead of worrying all day how I'm going to get all my nutrients from all my meals, I drink only this one drink, then the rest of the day, I eat one or two small meals.

Ways I Deal with Stress

After work I have a long commute home, to relieve the stress I crochet. Not only am I distressing before arriving home but I am accomplishing/creating something at the same time. At home when things become stressful, I play video games, listen to my favorite music, dance, crochet or talk a long brisk walk. Any hobby you enjoy can be relaxing and help with relieving stress.

Healthier Than Breath Mints...

Instead of using gum and breath mints...that have additives and various forms of sugar try whole cloves or a tiny piece of cinnamon bark for fresh breath. (no need to chew or swallow).
Added benefit: Save money!

Meeting my water goals

When I decided to cut out soda and drink more water, I bought a couple of brightly colored water bottles. I know it doesn't sound like much, but when I see the bright colors, my mood perks up a little bit-especially when I'm having a rough day at work! I also used to think water was so boring, but now I have the bright colors to distract me ;)

Finding quiet time for stress reduction

I allow myself one hour each day, usually in the early morning, to have quiet time by myself. I use this time to do my SP coaching,and I think about my day ahead. After my quiet time, I feel ready to take on the challenges of the day.

Drinking Water, Staying Hydrated

I keep a bottle of water with me everywhere I go. I drink at least 3 bottles a day and then other fluids, like hot/cold tea, etc to keep me hydrated daily. I don't drink soda anymore and notice I don't even crave. I actually don't like how it makes me feel when I drink even a small amount.
So stay hydrated throughout the day.
