Do you have a small area where you can exercise, calm yourself, and think deeply while releasing all the cares of the world? Well, if you have a garden then you do!
You may not be aware of it but caring for a garden burns calories, calms the nerves, and improves our connection with nature which can improve overall health. There are studies that show that just mowing the lawn (with a push mower) burns about 400 calories an hour. Pulling weeds burns about 200 calories an hour.
The University of Arkansas performed a study that showed that gardening was almost as effective as weight lifting at reducing the risk of osteoporosis in women. So along with the benefit of being outside, you can avoid a gym fee if you trade a Zumba class for caring for your garden and yard.
Some of us continue to get acne breakouts and skin problems even though we are religious about seeing a specialist, following their orders, and trying to be thorough in managing our skin. But sometimes it just doesn’t seem to be helping solve the problems we have had for a long time. Perhaps, the age-old adage “look inside” might be the next step in our path towards enlightening our skin burdens. And this means beginning with the end in mind. What end?
The end of the journey our food takes through our bodies. We don’t often realize it but our colon can be a real friend that helps us find balance in our health and give our skin an internal glow. If we are providing it with the elements it requires, it will do it’s job well which is to absorb nutrients and water and also get rid of waste and things that we do not need that could do us harm. We call that second process “elimination”.

Raise your hand if you're racing out of the door each morning because you have to get the kids to school, go to work, pick up breakfast, walk the dog etc. Do you really have time or even choose to make the time to shave each morning? If you are like me the answer is no you don’t shave daily; instead you pick out your clothes to avoid having to do it all together. Especially now, I love this time of year just because I never had to shave, I would just hide my hairiness behind a beautiful sweater and skinny jeans. That's before I discovered the freedom waxing bring.
While shaving can result in unsightly and spiky stubble appearing almost instantly, waxing leaves skin silky smooth and hair free for a considerably longer period of time, making waxing the longest lasting temporary hair removal solution.
If you are willing to brave out the temporary discomfort; the benefits of waxing unwanted hair from the skin are enough to make many women, and some men, become regular waxing warriors. In this blog I discuss the Pros and Cons of waxing.
