2014 Weekly Challenge #7: DeClutter your Life!

2014 Weekly Challenge #7: DeClutter your Life!

2014 Weekly Challenge #7: DeClutter your Life!

This week’s challenge is to de-clutter your life! 

Clutter can be draining and de-energizing. By getting more organized, you simplify and live a more meaningful life.  I don't know about you, but when I'm surrounded by crap, I feel  like crap and can't live my best life. 

This week, pick a drawer, a closet, or a room depending on your time and ambition  and get rid of the junk!  You can give away things you no longer use, and dust off the things you forgot you had! You will live more simply and freely as you de-clutter one step at a time.

2014 Weekly Challenge: Make an Appointment for Fitness!

If you ask an average woman on the street why she doesn't exercise regularly, odds are the answer will be "I don't have time." And the truth is, there isn't a single one of us who has enough time to do everything that needs doing.

Most of the important "to do's" in our lives are scheduled in advance. Dentist? Doctor? Hair cut? Lunch with a friend? Send a card for Aunt Dianna's birthday? Just about all of these things get planned in advance - written on a calendar, note, list, etc.

Something as important as your own health deserves at least equal attention!!

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, says while we are seeing an increase in flu activity in California it is not an unexpected increase, nor is it too late to get vaccinated against the flu.

"California is seeing an accelerated increase in flu activity over the past few weeks," said Dr. Chapman. "You can help prevent further spread of the flu by getting a flu shot."

While influenza activity varies from year to year and is unpredictable, California generally sees an increase in cases in late December or early January and it often peaks in February or March. According to CDPH surveillance indicators, influenza activity in California is beginning to show a steady increase and is now considered to be widespread. Currently, there are more hospitalizations at this point than expected, based on historical trends.

Restaurant-Worthy Meals Done at Home, Healthier

Restaurant-Worthy Meals Done at Home, Healthier

Megan Myers

I love to cook, but sometimes the temptation to dine out gets the better of me. Unfortunately, a lot of the food in restaurants is less than ideal when it comes to your health!

With the new year, it’s a great time to refocus your cooking and try recipes that will satisfy your desire to hit the restaurants, but don’t load up on the salt and fat. All the recipes below are approved by our Healthy Eating specialists and they follow the four pillars of healthy eating – they’re made using whole foods, they’re plant-strong™, they only contain healthy fats and they’re nutrient dense. All that and they taste good too! No reservation required.

Momservation: He may tower over me, call me Mom in the voice of Darth Vader, and have limbs of muscle and hair, but all these mother’s eyes can see is a baby boy.
