Why You Should Read

When people think of working out and wellness rarely do our thoughts go to our mind. Did you know that 1/3 of high school graduates never read another book the rest of their lives, 42% of college graduates never read another book after college, 80% of families did not buy or read a book last year, 70% of adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years, and 57% of new books are not read to completion. My bookworm self just gasped. I don’t necessarily read something that enriches my mind in a scholarly sense, but I …

Renew Your Skin with Aromatherapy Steam

I don’t know about you, but apparently every day I get a little older. I keep trying to reverse time, but I’ve had no such luck thus far. I look into ways to make my skin feel refreshed so that my bright and shiny skin stays just that way. I don’t ever want the glow to go! I absolutely love the way my skin feels from the steam when I go get a facial at the spa, but time and money don’t always allow for a trip to the spa. I looked into ways to have this same effect at home. …

Undiagnosed Diabetes?

Did you know that 8.1 million diabetes cases out of the 29.1 million people that have diabetes don’t know it? That’s 9.3% of the U.S. population that have the disease.

Untreated diabetes takes a toll on your heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves, as well as your gums and teeth. Unfortunately the symptoms are so minimal at first that it is hard to detect. With type 2 people often don’t know until there are problems from long term damage already caused …

Workplace Healthy Snacking

Whether you are a morning person or not I don’t know, but either way the morning tends to get away from those of us that head off to your typical 9-5 job. I am not a morning person and am lucky to get in a cup of coffee before running out the door. Starbucks knows me by name and my choices for breakfast are often a jar of caffeine rather than something of sustenance. Without a full meal I need to turn to healthy snacking instead. A few keys to maintaining a healthy lifestyle are eating throughout the day with …

Sleep, How Much or How Little?

The truth is there is no exact science to say exactly how much or how little sleep we should be getting. There is a recommended 8 hours, but that differs up or down depending on age, and is really just a recommended median in a window of time rather than an exact number. It is often hard once we lay our heads on the pillow to wind down and to enter into the first stages of sleep. We get too distracted with external lights and electronic devices that it takes more time to unwind. There are four stages of sleep. The …

Are 8 Glasses of Water Really Good For You?

There have been countless times and countless things I’ve read that say to drink 8 glasses of water a day. So lugging around my water bottle and constantly running to the little restroom has been something I’ve become accustomed to on my journey to fitness. Today I came across an interesting article that intrigued me and I’m inclined to believe its truth over some of the others pushing the water bandwagon. Schmidt’s Human Physiology states, “A Person weighing 155 lbs requires at least 59 oz of water per day. Of this amount 650 ml is obtained by drinking, 750 ml is …
