Act of Kindness

Do an act of kindness each day - it doesn't have to be big, but make it anonymously. Turning our focus out, helps us center on something other than ourselves. It warms the heart and feeds the soul to take care of one another without any ulterior motive! Peace!

Take cinnamon daily

DId you know that taking cinnamon every day helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level and improves cholesterol? I take cinnamon tablets, but you can add it to tea, cottage cheese, yogurt etc. But eating cinnamon rolls do not count! LOL

Eating (or drinking) your feelings

When I have the urge to eat my feelings, or drink them away because they make me uncomfortable, I go do an extra mini-workout first. Then if I still want those fries or that margarita, I have it - but I usually don't want it any more.
Extra exercise and fewer empty calories! Win - win.

keep your mind healthy

The older we get, the more important it is to keep your mind healthy. Take a class, do crossword puzzles, anything to keep the brain involved and thinking!

Soda Versus Water

I love sodas, but know that they are not good for us since they have no nutrients whatsoever. I drink at least 1 a day, but no more than 2. When I drink a soda, I drink as much water as was ounces of soda behind.

Never quit learning, Keeps me moving in right direction

I have done diet therapy for over 14 years now. Long enough that it should be a pro, but if I keep reading books and information about the diet helps me to stay motivated and it is amazing all the good things I learn.
