Self Love

Self Love

Loving yourself is so important. Letting go of things that are unhealthy for you is a GOOD thing. It may be hard at first, not matter what it is, but in the end you will thank yourself! Letting go of certain things means you are growing as a person and should only be seen as a positive thing. Once you start to doubt yourself, there is way too much room for other poisons in your brain. You will continue on a self-hating rant. Wouldn’t you rather a self-loving rant instead?

Detoxing Your Body

My mom ordered these foot pads for me that you wear on the bottom of your feet when you go to bed. When I wake up in the morning, the pads are completely black! I know this may sound gross but it’s also pretty cool at the same time. All the blackness shows that the pads actually work. They are called Kinoki Detox Food Pads, here’s a photo of them:

You can find them on Amazon for a pretty good price, especially today for Cyber Monday! They come with a bunch in a pack and they really do work great. There’s a bunch of other ways to help your body detox but this one contains little effort on my part so I like them! I’m starting to feel sick lately because of the weather changes so they come in handy. Another one of my favorite ways to detox is lemon water.

If you drink a lot of it, you will be back and forth to the bathroom but this just shows that it’s flushing out your body. This is perfect if you went out over the weekend and want to get rid of all the alcohol in your body. Lemon water has many other benefits as well.

The Cost of Healthy Foods

So, I just went to Shop Rite and need to vent a little bit. And no, not about the people that cause me to get road rage with my shopping cart. I bought organic grapes and once I went to pay for them they came to $15.00! Is it just me or does that sound crazy? I’ve heard that regular grapes are part of the “dirty dozen” and that you shouldn’t eat them. I would do this, if they didn’t cost a small fortune. It just doesn’t make sense to me, a lot of America is overweight and people wonder why? Maybe it’s because healthy foods cost so much while McDonald’s and other fast food places are so cheap. A lot of people are struggling financially right now and fast foods are so much easier to get which is unfortunate. We shouldn’t have to pay more money just to be healthy!

Tips to Make A Day at the Office go Faster

Image

Office jobs can be busy at times but can also make the day drag when there’s not much to do. I’ve worked in an office setting for over five years, at three different places. One is a real estate office, the other a tent company and the job I am at now, LongIsland.com. They all have had their fair share of boring and busy days so here are a few things I do to keep busy:

1. Listen to music. It effects your mood and helps you focus on something other than the clock.

2. Get up and stretch. If you’re anything like me, your neck and shoulders KILL after a full day of sitting at the computer. Try to get up as often as you can to stretch or even do some stretches while sitting down.

3. Snack on healthy foods. People tend to eat when they’re bored or if they’re sitting in front of the tv. This goes for those sitting at a computer too. Snacking will help time go by just like it does at home. Try to snack every 3 hours (on healthy foods!) My favorites are grapes, clementines or baby carrots with ranch dressing.

4. Try to get fresh air on your break, even if it’s only for a couple of minutes. If it’s a nice day it can positively effect your mood and wake you up a bit if you’re feeling sluggish. The cold weather isn’t as nice but it also helps wakes you up and revives you to finish the rest of your day.

5. If you have a ton of down time and your boss is alright with it… get some personal stuff done. Whether it’s putting together your grocery list or looking up flights for your next trip. It’s sometimes hard to get everything done in one day so down time at work can be the perfect time for this.

Image

6. Last one is the most important. Keep a positive attitude. If you’re in a bad mood and hanging on every negative thought, your day is going to go slower. I’ve come to realize this… when I dwell on the day going slow, it does go slow. If I start out the day saying that it won’t be that bad, it goes a little bit faster.
