Dealing With Change

We often forget to take care of ourselves when we’re wrapped up in change, but that's when we most need to focus on the S.E.E.D: Sleep, Eat, Exercise and Drink (water). Maintaining your health by getting enough sleep, eating well, drinking lots of fresh water and moving, moving, moving will give you the strength and vitality to move forward through change without getting stuck.

When you move, your life force starts flowing again and you feel empowered. Your emotions move through you, rather than staying stuck in your head. Most importantly, your energy and self-esteem improve, so you’re better able to handle stress.

Which Way Should the Ceiling Fan Turn?

My dad was explaining to me that in the summer the fan turns one direction and in the winter, the fan should turn the other way. However, he couldn't' remember which way the fan should turn and when. Woman's Day June 2009 put out a quick article that saved the day:

During the summer, the blades should turn counter clockwise, blowing air down to cool you. In Winter, they should be turning clockwise, circulating the hot air in the room. To change the rotation, turn off the fan, find the little switch on the side and flip it.

Anti-Aging Stretching

I found this article in Woman's Day June, 2009 and liked the point it made.

"Getting regular exercise is crucial-and stretching is especially key for those of us who spend most of our day in a chair. 'Siting puts pressure on your discs in your spine and shortens and tightens the front of your body which can make you feel older,' says Chris Frederick, a PT in Arizona. Stretching alleviates those problems."

Hungry? Drink Water

The next time you reach for food, consider that you might actually just be thirsty. “Often, people don’t recognize that they’re thirsty and they eat, instead,” suggests Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, or “Dr. Batman,” author of Obesity, Cancer & Depression: Their Common Cause & Natural Cure. We really want water, but somehow our signals get confused.

Many of us—99% of Americans by the age of 70—are dehydrated without even knowing it. According to Dr. Batman, your body’s cries for water can show up as irritability, anxiety, depression and fatigue and many other disease symptoms, such as pain. “When your body is dehydrated, it cannot get rid of the acid content inside the cells,” Dr. Batman explains. “The brain translates this acidity situation into pain at the location of the excess acid.”

We attribute our symptoms to other causes without considering a simpler one—dehydration—with an even simpler solution: Drink more water.
