Pursue a Healthy Work Life: Re-set Those Resolutions

This year for New Year’s, I decided to make some changes that are going to enhance my lifestyle. While I'm getting better at taking my vitamins and exercising regularly, I know there are still plenty of ways I can be healthier while improving my career. You’re probably thinking how can you be healthier at work? Well, there are a lot of ways to have a healthier career. It’s all about creating better boundaries, having a positive work environment, and making sure you’re giving yourself enough time to recover when you’re not working.
I’ve decided to renew my vow in 2017 to be healthier while enhancing my career. Often when we have a lot to do, we feel more feelings of guilt than empowerment if we can't accomplish it all. It’s time to stop feeling this way and make both work and healthy living fun again. Banish the guilt. Pursue the things that make you feel alive. Do what you can to find success, and feel good about those successes. They will inevitably lead to more. Here are a few things I’ve found to be helpful in pursuing health:
Focus on growing a business
Perhaps your focus isn’t working more efficiently and making time for healthier work boundaries like mine is. Perhaps your goal is to expand and grow a business because you just took time off to have a baby or you weren’t as motivated to expand the business as you would have hoped in 2016. Whether you are starting a new business or expanding to a second or third office, finding a beautiful virtual or furnished office space equipped with high-quality office furniture may be the perfect fit for you. For example, if you’re working in an environment that’ll help you stay goal driven and focused on a daily basis is vital. If you work at home, a new office space away from home may be just what you need.
Take your vitamins
Each day, I take the recommended dose of multivitamins, some calcium supplements, and an OMEGA-3 fatty acid supplement. It may sound strange, but I can tell the difference in my feelings and appearance when I skip the OMEGA-3. I take it to aid my brain function, help my skin, and it also helps with anxiety and depression. Vitamins can help with your work productivity and make you feel better, especially when you’re having a lousy day. Celebrate each time you take your vitamins and appreciate the nourishment they’re giving your body.
Get out in the sun
I have a friend who is a consistent marathon runner. I’ve always been envious of her ability to stay in shape -- and her healthful appearance. She says that running helps her control fibromyalgia. I’d like to start a running program to help me have more energy, but it’s hard. I asked her what her secret is, and she said that you have to start by just getting your butt out the door at the same time every day.
Staying motivated to work on your career is fantastic, but it’s vital to take time away to not only get some exercise but gain new ideas and perspectives. There are a lot of people who enjoy working who also enjoy going on the occasional jog because it’s during that time they come up with a load of new ideas for their business!
You don’t have to force yourself to do anything extreme. Just develop a pattern of pursuing a healthy work life, and your motivation will come. Each time you make a new work goal, walk a mile, breathe deep the fresh air, or drink a big glass of water, pat yourself on the back. You’re moving in the right direction.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
