Great service is something that should be supported and appreciated, not simply expected. It’s a gesture to let someone know they have done a job well and it can be a motivation for that person to be even better. Not to mention, I love seeing good people succeed.
Sugar is not a required nutrient so quite frankly, if you can go without any added sugar, that’s your best bet. However, I am not looking to be cruel with the Daily Changes, so if you can, keep it down to the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 9 teaspoons or 36 grams for men and 6 teaspoons or 24 grams for women per day. Note, this again is added sugar, not sugars that occur naturally in some foods such as fruit.
The average American consumes 21 teaspoons or 84 g sugar daily, far above this recommended amount.
So less sugar in our bodies, better health for you and less stress on the health care system from chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
There is something to be said for art as a therapy. The creative process of art is thought to enhance the physical, mental and emotional well being of people of all ages. Your art for today is not about the product, but rather the process, just get yourself in a creative mindset and get going.
Keep in mind, one serving of meat is 3 oz, about the size of your palm, or a deck of cards. The recommended daily amount is 3-6 oz, not to exceed 6 oz.
What a great way to be kinder to our health and the environment!
It may be someone living that you can enjoy an engaging conversation, a friend, a parent or family member, a neighbor, a co-worker… or take some knowledge from an iconic person alive or deceased that you would like to learn more about. There is something to be said for the knowledge, experience and wisdom gained from simply living life. Today, treat yourself to taking a moment to hear what time has taught someone else in the lessons on life.
One of my favorite thoughts is to do something that scares you every day. In order to do this, you need to be brave, rather than live in fear. Whatever it is today that you might cripple and shy away from, stand tall and proceed forward and if you have something to say or do that you know is right, say or do it. 🙂
Basically, save energy by keeping your refrigerator packed and opening it up less frequently.
The more kindness spread in this world, the better.
Alone, with a friend, family member, your kids or your pet, get outside and enjoy some late summer/early fall weather (my favorite time of the year to enjoy nature!), preferably in the thick of trees and greenery, away from the hustle and bustle.
I would love to have a personal computer specialist come teach me all the ways I could save time and effort with various apps, software and technology (maybe there’s an app for that? ;). And if you have any suggestions, would love to hear them.
In the meantime, there are a few I am aware of, but have been putting off. Spend a little time figuring out some time wasters in your life that you could streamline better with your phone, smart pad or computer. (Calendar, lists, organizing, etc.)
More time usually means less stress, less stress means better health :).
