Alternative Remedies for stress relief

In today’s modern society we live in a world overrun by stress.  Our busy lifestyle is one of the main reasons for having a stressful life, followed by many other factors such as difficult relationships, financial problems, unsatisfying job and so on. The first step to dealing with stress is to identify the cause and take control of the situation.  Remaining passive will neither solve the situation nor will get us better.  During stressful times we tend to ignore our health and make “unhealthy choices”.  Too much alcohol, smoking, caffeine and unhealthy…

How to deal with People

We will look into ways to deal with these emotions, thus understanding people:- – Always keep in mind that we can’t change people but we have the ability to change ourselves!

Simple changes!

Another month has started and summer is almost over, it can be just another month or an opportunity to think about changes!  Making a change does not need to be difficult, there are plenty of easy changes to incorporate in our daily lifestyle, so let’s ask the question….what do I need to change?

A holistic approach to Detox!

Setting aside a week or any day of the week to cleanse the body is a way to renew, recharge & rejuvenate.  So make a date with…

Coping with Emotions

At some point in life we will be challenged with emotional distress.  Every challenge makes a different  story, and every circumstance will create a different emotion. Emotions are beautiful and creative energies, they represent our meaningful existence and without them our life would be dull.

A new way of thinking

Many of us have surely tried some kind of “diets” at some point in time.  Some have helped us to lose weight happily but others left us craving for the food we missed with the consequence of gaining more weight than we already started! So let’s think about losing weight differently.  We also are aware that we are what we eat.  Everything that we eat and drink automatically affects the body’s functioning, even our emotions.  If your “diet” lacks any nutrients or if you are providing too much of…
