Keep Your Mind in Your Workout

It can be tempting to treat your workout as an opportunity for some personal multitasking -- working your body while your mind wanders off to think about upcoming deadlines, family obligations, and dinner plans. But don’t let your mind wander too far! Exercise isn’t just a physical activity: It’s a mental one.

Make Your Own Chemical Free Hand Soap

Chemical Free?!  That was my response, two years ago, when a friend of mine started selling oils and talking to me about how I can make my own chemical free cleaning products to clean my house.  At first I was like “Yeah, yeah, whatever,” but when she started talking to me about all these chemicals that we come into contact with on a daily basis it made me rethink everything.
