    What Is Healing Crystal Jewelry?

    What Is Healing Crystal Jewelry?

    Healing crystal jewelry offers a form of protection and a way to celebrate the body through healing crystals. For hundreds of years, it has played a vital role in connecting the human spirit and body and healing the mind, being, and soul. Ancient Indians used the stones to transform the wearer into a figure of beauty while reaching perfection internally and externally. Healing crystal jewelry still serves to bring beauty and attention to those who wear it, however in more recent years, it has been discovered that the crystals bear healing qualities that facilitate easier living. Specifically, healing crystal jewelry helps one to find his/herself, something difficult to achieve without assistance. Similarly, the treasures positively influence important decisions, protect against negativity, and generate good luck and fortune. The energies emitted from crystals can help improve your moods, your health and even your mental and spiritual wellbeing.

    Self Care

    Working as a care coordinator is extremely rewarding, but it is also stressful. Plus, I am the only care coordinator for three clinics and each clinic has approximately 100+ clients. That's about 300+ clients that I am trying to help, give referrals to and enough care. By the end of the day, I am exhausted and just want to sleep. So, how do I take care of myself?

    Burnout out Rant

    Burnout out Rant

    Growing up, I was a bit of a problematic kid. I couldn’t sit still, and my eyes would water as soon as I had to focus on anything. I couldn’t grasp things that other people in my class were able to grasp. I would get extra help from the “other” teachers and could never really handle it—I wanted to be anywhere but in that situation. By the time I was in grade 10, I had certain teachers full on insult me for my inability to grasp math. I felt like I was inadequate, and I hated being different. It wasn’t only until the past 10 years that I grasped the fact that I had learning disabilities that held me back in this way.

    It's no doubt that running can give your life more benefits that can help you be healthier and live longer. If you are like me, running does not excite you. It can be a daunting and terrifying task. However, you can run longer, and you can run faster, you need to build up to it. The most simple and effective way to run longer and more quickly is to run in intervals. For me, it's sprinting for one minute and walking for one minute. I do this for an hour each day.

    Lull: The Mattress That Turned My Four Hours into Eight

    Lull: The Mattress That Turned My Four Hours into Eight

    I know from personal experience that finding the mattress that gives you the perfect night’s sleep can be a foreboding task. As I was searching for a new bed, I was intimidated by the prospect of choosing from hundreds of different mattresses. Each one promised to give me the best shut-eye I’ve ever had and I wasn’t sure what was actually going to make a difference in my sleep. Luckily, I heard about the The Lull Mattress, and ever since my sleep has been completely transformed. I wish I knew months ago that all it would take to overcome my sleepless nights was a new mattress. I hope that my journey to getting a full night of sleep inspires you to do the same.

    The Surprising Science Behind Lull, the Mattress That Will Change the Way You Sleep

    There’s nothing better than crawling into bed at night and there’s no place in the world more comfortable than your own bed (especially in those moments just before you fall asleep). Unfortunately, those fleeting moments of comfort are not as universal as you’d think. According to Consumer Reports, 68 percent of Americans have trouble sleeping at least once a week and Americans spent $41 billion on sleep aids in 2015. From sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome to anxiety and stress, there are plenty of factors that can contribute to a lack of sleep. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation, lost sleep can never be recovered. The easiest factor to fix? Your sleep environment.

    What Are We Left With?

    I was asked a question recently that was very deep and thought-provoking. A friend asked me if I had to choose between an old age spent losing my physical abilities but keeping my mental faculties, or an old age spent losing my mental faculties and keeping my physical abilities—Which one would I choose? The question gave me pause because I normally do not focus a lot on my impending aging, but it’s natural to think of what life will be like once you are an elderly person. My friend did not hesitate to say that he would choose having his physical abilities intact since he is a very active person and enjoys running, hiking, and exercising at the gym.

    5 Tips for Maintaining Your Summer Body Over Winter

    Winter is almost here, and you know how we don’t tend to take too much care of our looks during the colder months of the year. We usually eat more, drink lots of hot chocolate, go to the gym less... Maybe because it’s not warm outside and it is just perfect for resting in our bedroom, tucked in in our favorite fuzzy blanket, binge-watching all the good shows we can find. But doing all this also means we are not doing anything to keep fit, and we can regret it later when our body is not prepared for the summer. So, to later not feel bad about your appearance, let’s see how you can maintain your summer body over winter!

    Improving Mental and Cognitive Health

    Many people struggle with emotional eating, and oftentimes, the food sources are less than healthy. While food is to be used as a fuel source for the body’s health, mindless eating in a response to an emotional need can simply make matters worse. The psychological health of your mind is just as dependent on the food you eat as the physical health of your body. When your mind is fighting depression or anxiety, your body’s response is both emotional and physical. Fatigue and a lack of energy are two of the body’s primary physical responses to mental health concerns.

    Every #WorldDiabetesDay, I blog about #diabetes, as one does. Generally speaking, I make some mention of the kid—really, now a manchild of nearly 16 years—who I affectionately dub as my "diabetes warrior buddy." This young man so impresses me that if one were to ask who I look up to, I'd mention his name. He's never let this autoimmune condition—in his case, he has Type 1 diabetes—slow him down, not even once, and he's done more in his 15-and-three-quarters years on the planet than many have done in their lifetimes. In spite of having to strictly monitor his blood sugar levels, prick his fingers several times a day, live with an insulin pump and monitor in his arm, and occasionally wake up disoriented and confused because his blood sugar levels are too low, he still approaches everything with his typical broad smile and positive attitude.
