We’re focusing on making fitness fun. And this month your challenge is to create a fun fitness date with your spouse or your significant other. Now earlier in the month we talked about the value of having an accountability partner, but what if that accountability partner could be your spouse or your significant other? Not only would it give you a little bit more time together, but you could even create something fun and romantic. Your partner can really stand for what you really want in the realm of fitness, and you can hold your partner accountable to their goals as well. It’s a great way for you all to be a contribution to each other.

Have you ever received a compliment from someone you didn’t know? Have you ever given a compliment unexpected and noticed the joy that spread across the person’s face? Often, we get into our own little world and we forget the impact that just one "thank you" or acknowledgement or compliment can mean to someone else. We never know how someone’s day is going.

Living without emotional awareness, and effective communication of our emotions can be the source of unnecessary stress, and it can also be avoided. Emotional awareness is the first step in raising our level of emotional intelligence. Below are some basic steps to raising your emotional awareness.

How to clean your garbage disposal easily, simply and naturally

b2ap3_thumbnail_heart378.png
b2ap3_thumbnail_women8.png

I learned this tip on a TV program some time ago! You take a lemon and you don't have to use a whole lemon, unless it's going. So if you've already squeezed the lemon, used it in tea, etc. .. it's the rind you want. Simply drop the rind into your garbage disposal, turn your water on, then turn your garbage disposal on. You'll know when the rind is completely finished because it will no longer be making a rumbling sound, but will sound more smooth and you'll have a fresh lemon aroma, as well. It's the acids form the lemon and the rind that get rid of all that crud, build up and aroma from all the other foods you put down the garbage disposal.

How many times have you dreamed of a day of pampering and then thought "Oh that’s too expensive!" or "I need to use that money to pay my ____ bill?" It’s easy to neglect ourselves simply because we think that we cannot afford luxury. I’ve got something very radical to tell you! Pampering is NOT a luxury, it is a necessity. Here’s another little secret: Pampering doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Seeing your worth, and making your commitment to self a priority is key to managing your stress and having your life work for you. Though pampering does not have to cost a fortune, you should not be afraid to spend a little money on yourself now and again. Many times when we feel devalued, it’s because we are not properly valuing ourselves. However, for more practical and consistent pampering, I have comprised a short list of things that you can do for under $50 dollars.
