Stress Releaser

We all need to release some stress in our life , Every other day just  try to do one of the following  ......


Turn the radio up , clear your head and just  Dance, Dance, Dance. It is great for releasing your stress and makes you feel great too !

Take a 5 minute stroll around the block and come back like a different person . You can feel the stress leave your body with each step you take .

Skip the shower and light some candles and use the tub instead ! Just relax and take a few minutes longer than your usual .

Do some Yoga ! I personally don`t go for it because just getting there is stressful for me . I just feel the need to have to move to release my stress. My brain bad ! LOL

Reading a book releases stress and takes you to places you always dreamed of  but could never afford  or never have the time to go to .

Me ? I find that the greatest way to release stress for me is crafting .. whether I am making wreaths, painting ,  knitting, or  crocheting , It just takes me to a new world and my imagination just takes over .

How do you release your stress ?

Name Brands

My 9 yr. old son came home from school all upset yesterday . He asked me whats with the Gap sign on his shirt , what does it mean ?? I told him it was a name brand etc. and he says ..Well don`t ever buy me anything that has Gap on it because everyone at school made fun of me today !! Shirts need designs on them not Gap or any other writing on them Mom  !  Can you believe that ?  What world are we living in ??  I understand that kids can be cruel at this age but this is just insane .

This is a case where you are doomed if you do and doomed if you don`t.  What are your thoughts ?

 OOOOOH how I love garlic , Not only in my food but also great for earaches , just slice it in half and stick it in the ear at the first sign of an ear ache . I don`t know how many trips to the doctor it has saved me .  Thank you to my Sister N Law Mindy who was the one who introduced me to the magic of the garlic cure . I have also read that it is good for high blood pressure and good for toothaches as well .

The miracle of a cucumber

Have you ever suffered from a severe headache ?? before you go for the pills  ---- Grab a cucumber out of the fridge ( must be very cold )  slice it and lay down , place 1 slice on each eye and take another slice and rub it on your forehead till the cucumber starts to warm , then flip the cucumber on the eyes to the cold side and take another cold slice and keep rubbing the forehead ....I have done this when I had such a bad headache that I felt like I was going to puke .. My headache went away within 5 minutes and if you get the feeling its on its way back just do it 1 more time !!  You will feel better in no time . Try it and let me know how it works for you .

 Lately all you hear is how great pomegranate is . Anything with POM seams to be a hit.

supposedly your suppose to eat the seeds , you can chew and swallow them whole.It is best to open them under water so you don`t end up making a mess . 

the big hype ....Pomegranates contain polyphenols, they are loaded with antioxidants which reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. As always remember that fresh is always best .  If you think that eating pomegranate ice cream will benefit you ? think again ! If you want to benefit your health  better stick to FRESH only and nothing that's been processed .

A fun way to eat them is putting one in a plastic bag and roll it on your counter as you press on it and then stick a straw in it ... your teeth will not get stained and you reap all the benefits .

How do you declutter ?

answer :

Every week , the day before garbage day I take a huge garbage Bag and check every room for anything to throw out I start w/the garbage that I have in each bedroom and I then look in the closets for anything I can discard .. old t`shirt ? socks with holes ? old magazines ? ..My goal is to always discard 1 large garbage bag per week and if I cannot fill the bag that means no new items can be brought into the house for  that week . To meet my goal, once in a while I`ll  include the garage .

Further decluttering:
Every 4 months I`ll go through everyone`s closets to see how many items are not being used and that I can give away to good will

keeping up with the decluttering on a regular basis becomes so rewarding to me .

I have started doing this a few years ago and have always been able to fill my bag without a problem . How do you declutter ? Do you have a tip ? please share your thoughts .

Life Is A Dance

LIFE IS A DANCE ...( By Eileen Bennet)

One of the most important lessons I've learned is that life is a dance.

Sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow. When you lead, you do it gently, firmly and clearly, and when you follow, you do so with trust.

The amazing thing is that each one of us is involved in many dances at any one time - and we are the leader in some and the follower in others!

Some dances are slow and majestic and others are crazy and frenetic and still others are somewhere in between.

Some last a lifetime - others are over almost as soon as they begin.

Most of the time we manage not to fall flat on our faces, which is even more amazing and requires some pretty fancy footwork.

And sometimes we do trip up or our toes get squashed and we get hurt - but the important thing is to keep on dancing - no matter what.

Just keep dancing!

Even if you can't hear the music or you just don't don't feel like it or you have acquired two left feet, keep on dancing!

Reminds me of the words of a Garth Brooks song: 'our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance.'

When looking at a glass with some water in it , I always look at is as half full never half empy . My goal is to always try to see things in a positive way . Life is so much better that way , and if I`m happy so is everyone around me , especially my kids .  If your ever looking for a great resource for parenting positive kids , you should start with  http://fishfulthinking.repnation.com/Log.ashx?a=2&i=361&r=b9081c31-8947-4969-b0ab-ea35f409a62f

Forgot to dry your clothes and you need it quick ??

I found that the fastest way to dry something that you need quick and don`t have time for the dryer to run its full cycle is to  just put the item that you need in the dryer with a few large dry towels .. Your clothes will dry in less than 15 minutes . The towels will absorb most of the water quickly and you will be good to go in no time.

Do you have any tips to share?
