Always buy healthier food from

Buying Locally for a Healthier Taste and Conscience
Next time you hit the grocery store, shop around for the best buys that support your own local environment. Check labels and signs of the produce you purchase and make an effort to buy locally grown products. Buying locally means less energy expended to bring food to your table, cutting down on everything from air pollution to the burning of fossil fuels from trucking in cargo. Buying locally also means fresher fruits and vegetables that are healthier for your body and tastier to your taste buds. Fruits and veggies shipped from abroad are usually harvested at least two full weeks before they are ripe so that they don’t go rotten during their long voyages on planes and in crates before arriving to your grocer.

By buying from people in your area you’re also supporting the local economy and helping to make your home part of a more sustainable community. If products aren’t labeled at your grocery store, talk to the management and let them know you would like to know whether the tomatoes your buying were genetically engineered at some factory or whether they were grown under the same bright skies you wake up to in the morning. By buying locally, not only are you bound for a fresher taste but also for a healthier conscience by making simple decisions that go a long way in protecting all of our environments.

Flax and diet

Incorporate flax into your diet
Adding a few servings of flaxseed into your daily diet is healthful for your heart and digestive system.

Studies show that the fats found in flaxseed may be good for your cardiovascular system. Flaxseeds contain alpha-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that is necessary for blood pressure regulation. The seeds also contain lignans, compounds with antioxidant-like properties. Its high fiber content also keeps your digestive system healthy.

Be sure the flaxseeds are grounded so that the your body can digest it properly to ensure maximium absorption.

99 cents for downloading music

Downloading music in the Internet
As many of you, for several years I downloaded illegally, several thousand songs to various MP3 players, today, I own an Apple iPod player that can hold all of my songs in its memory. At the time I did my illegal downloading, starting from Napster, I had no other options, now that we do, I suggest, the much better alternative of paying 99 cents per song, buying only the songs you like from within a CD and avoiding the following problems, now present in my iPod:

* Songs suddenly ending (even though I thought, I knew how to avoid this problem).
* Poor sound quality 25% of the time.
* Tremendous disparity in the sound level among songs.
* Sudden augmentation in the sound level within a song.
Additionally, you can save yourself:
* Hundreds of recording hours.
* Personal guilt.
* Having to hear others telling you than you are dishonest.
* Lately, even risking a jail sentence.
99 cents is not much to pay to avoid the above pitfalls!

Reduse Stress

Reduce Stress
Easier said than done, stress busters come in many forms. Some techniques recommended by experts are to think positive thoughts. Spend 30 minutes a day doing something you like. (i.e.,Soak in a hot tub; walk on the beach or in a park; read a good book; visit a friend; play with your dog; listen to soothing music; watch a funny movie. Get a massage, a facial or a haircut. Meditate. Count to ten before losing your temper or getting aggravated. Avoid difficult people when possible. Thought for the day: When seeing red, think pink clouds….then float on them.

Hiccup Cure
Place a silver butter knife in an 8 ounce glass of water. Drink all 8 ounces of the water with the handle of the knife resting against your cheek. This may sound a bit crazy but it NEVER fails!
