How are you guys? How was your week? I hope that you are feeling great and even better now that it is officially the weekend! I hope this weekend is a blessing to you, gives you renewed hope, strength and happiness. Sometimes we just need a little time to restore. Take some time for YOU to restore this weekend!
As for me, I am going to take some time out, read some motivational books (I am almost done with one of the Friday Favorites I listed here: Are we happy Yet) and just focus on relaxing. I’ll probably turn on my new heater, warm up the bathroom and take a epsom salt bath too! Here are the rest of my Friday Favorites…
Honeywell 360° Surround Heaters
I frequently use a space heater in the winter, and often times during the other seasons too. We keep them in all the bathrooms in the house. They maintain the bathroom temperature to a cozy and warm state while taking a bath or before getting ready in the morning. But never have I had a “space heater extraordinaire” like the Honeywell 360° Surround Heater.
This heater heats the whole room! It is so efficient! While heaters can often be hazards, this one has extra safety protections like: tip over protection, overheat protection and caution lights to alert the heater is turned on. This is a nice heater for warming up the whole room without turning on the entire house heat.
Dr. Axe Leaky Gut Program
I bought the Dr. Axe Leaky Gut program hoping it would give me the guidance to feel better. I was dealing with nausea, lightheaded, dizziness, and on and on. The program is a 4-week process with daily emails, videos, recipes, tips and more. The best part about the program is the helpful Facebook group you become a part of. It is filled with people who are going through a lot of the same issues. It is so nice to have these supporters.
In the program, Dr. Axe recommends many of his supplements and encourages you to read his book Eat Dirt – Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root Cause of Your Health Problems and 5 Surprising Steps to Cure It. I found that the Bone Broth Protein is a great addition to my diet. Bone broth has been helping me heal and making me feel way better. I make my own (he has a recipe included in the program) and then I also supplement with the Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein. If you are interested in healing a leaky gut, check out the Dr. Axe Program!
From The Roots Book
The new book by Marsha Therese Danzig, From The Roots – The True Story of How I Beat Death and Learned to Live, is a very interesting read. Marsha has gone through tremendous things (bone cancer twice, congestive heart failure, kidney transplant, below the knee amputee, and other many other ailments) yet she leads a productive and positive life.
Marsha is an amazing example to us all. To go through so much and to maintain a happy outlook, makes my life simple struggles look pathetic. She doesn’t dwell on her sicknesses or ailments, but seeks the bigger picture, fighting for her spirit. If you need an inspiring, incredible, real-life read – I suggest this true story!
Dollar Shave Club
My husband has been using the same razor for a long, long time. Finally, he has actually noticed and asked me to get him a new razor (Yay! I didn’t need to say it first!) I thought I might give Dollar Shave Club a try because it is a great deal when you get your first subscription ($1 razor, say what!).
The Dollar Shave Club takes the hassle of trudging to the store for overpriced razor blades. They come directly to you in the mail! It is not complicated! Plus, everyone likes a new razor blade when shaving! We got out first Dollar Shave Club box and we think it is just dandy!
Are We Happy Yet Book
Are We Happy Yet, Eight Keys to Unlocking a Joyful Life has been a book that has made me see a little clearer. I am not sure why, but over the years I have become less happy, more fearful, less positive. It is not who I want to be! Of course, on the outside my friends say I am the nicest person they know… but on the inside I just hear constant negative thoughts.
“You gotta look for the good in the bad, the happy in your sad, the gain in your pain and what makes you grateful not hateful.” – Karen Salmansohn
I picked up this book and quickly took the “Defining Your H-Factor” test. The following chapters work through how to find joy, how to trust, how to invest in yourself and more. “It’s not enough to just think happy thoughts” says the author. It’s much more than that. I found so much motivation in this guidebook. I love that it made me feel normal, showed me that others struggle too (many stories and examples), and gave me lots of insight to improve! If you want to better you mind, body and soul by improving your happiness – this is a great book!
As a flight attendant, I am always asked about what to do with stuffed up sinuses and ears. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve and a couple products I trust. A new option that just caught my attention is the Clear Pop Rapid Earache Relief. This product is unlike many other solutions for painful earaches. It targets the source of the pain and releases pressure in kid’s ears because of the biomechanical design and the blend of unique ingredients.
Clear Pop uses no antibiotics and kids say they enjoy the taste. It encourages saliva production, which helps drain the Eustachian tube, relieving pressure and pain. For more information on how it works, check out the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/iCiuqtQpHyc
