Juicing for Health

Juicing is definitely good for your health and an excellent way to lose weight safely.  You can actually have it before meals – like juices that include vegetables that require more calories to digest than they contain (like carrots, cabbage and broccoli) because it will help curb your appetite and speed up the weight loss process. Juicing also ensures that you get enough vegetables and fruits in your diet because let’s face it; most of our meals are generally carb and calorie laden.  With juicing, you can get all the nutrients that you need in a few gulps.

Juicing Tips

If you want to be successful at juicing in order to maintain a healthier lifestyle, then be sure to keep your juicing machine on your counter or in sight all the time. If you keep a certain area designated as the "juicing area," then you will be more likely to use it as it is intended.

Reuse the pulp from your vegetable juices to cut down on waste. You can use vegetable pulp as a base for soups and stews, to add flavor and texture. In addition, the pulp can be used as the base for compost, which you can then use in your garden to grow even more fresh vegetables.

Make sure and remove the greens from items like carrots and rhubarb. They can contain harmful chemicals that become toxic when juiced. Make sure to research all of your fruits, veggies and other items before juicing them so that you are aware of any important do's and don'ts before starting.

The best time to fire up your juicer is a half hour before any meal. Drink the fresh juice on an empty stomach. Drinking juice on an empty stomach is helpful to absorb the most nutrients quickly and effectively. Fruit juices should be consumed in the mornings because digestive energy is the lowest in the mornings.

Certain juices are very potent, so contact your pediatrician before juicing for children especially the young ones. Some fruits can cause diarrhea in large doses, for example, so while they just keep you regular they could instead keep your child regularly in the bathroom! If you can't get to the doctor any time soon, stick to juice that is typically sold with kids in mind, like apple and orange.

Juicing Your Way to Fitness!

If you want to be more health conscious, you do healthier things. Whether eating or drinking, there are several ways that you could make meals wiser and healthier, and juicing is one such way. Drinking juice is one of the best ways to get the nutrients and enzymes your body needs. So do you buy bottled juice or make your own juice? Start now the habit of juicing!

Save Environment Now

Focus should be given on how we can save environment now given its state and the people’s mindset when it comes to conservation and preservation.  With the ever growing population worldwide come the accompanying problem of trash pollution and the incessant demand of people to require more from the environment.  The numbers are growing but our planet is not expanding – the more reason why we need to do something to save environment now.  Raising awareness about how our actions are affecting the environment will create understanding as to how we can save environment by taking responsibility.  We can start by being a conscious consumer and supporting fair trade products.

Save Environment by Supporting Fair Trade

Did you know that a key principle of the World Fair Trade Organization states the protection and conservation of our natural resources?  With that, there are guidelines as well as Environmental Standards that needed to be met by farmers who would like to participate in fair trade.  The standards aim to protect the environment so that we can preserve and conserve it for more generations to come.  There are guidelines are set from the treatment of the soil and water to non use of GMOs and agrochemicals.  The farmers are given financial incentives and resources for adhering to standards – that is for organic conversion, reforestation, water conservation as well as environmental education.

Save Environment by Being Aware

It’s safe to say that buying fair trade goods also save environment.  Farmers are starting to treat our natural resources more wisely, respectfully and economically because of the education and additional knowledge brought upon by fair trade cooperatives.  They are now enlightened to the fact that these natural resources will provide for their livelihood, their children’s education and even their family’s health care.  As a sign of gratitude it’s only proper that we care and save environment in return.

Fair Trade empowers the farmers through funding and incentives.  It means that they no longer have to result into their old ways – carelessly farming with no regards to deforestation, erosion or the impact of their pesticides to people and the water system.  Knowing that they can fairly join the trade market by making a living while protecting the environment – there is no reason why they will not choose to embrace the new ways.

Fair Trade is making an impact to the lives of people by providing them the means of livelihood while at the same time helping to save environment through awareness and education.  In Fair Trade, we can assure that producers or the farmers are being paid accordingly, being protected by working in a safe environment and are being educated with the needed information to push through further with their chosen means of livelihood.  Fair Trade also ensures that mother earth is being protected by promoting a more sustainable eco-friendly lifestyle to save environment.

Meditation: Natural Healing

Oftentimes, our body and mind eventually give in to all the everyday stress that we started to feel the heaviness - physically, mentally and emotionally.  And of course we all hate that feeling.  You’ll be surprised at how even a brief meditation can do so much for you.  Meditation is definitely a great way to clear our minds, relieve us of stress and ease some chronic pains that you may be experiencing.

Meditation 101

Before you start to condition your mind into surrendering in a meditative state here are three basic considerations that can help you prepare for meditation:

Find a quiet place – If you can, it’s ideal to choose a room that has an ocean view, or view of the nature like mountains or fields. But of course, the reality is that most of us may not have such luck.  Probably for many people out there having an empty and spare room is already a luxury in itself.  If you do happen to have an extra room for your meditation, have it painted with colors that suggest relaxation (like lavender, sky blue, or green).  You can also opt to have even just a small space or area; just make sure that it’s the quietest place in the house.

Nothing too fancy but some props will be great – Keep in mind that we don’t want clutter, in fact you basically just need something you can sit on, it could be a mat, a rug, or a cushion.  You just need simple meditation pillows or mat to avoid strain on your back, remember that you’ll be sitting in a position for an extended period of time.  You can also add plants, or table top water fountain, the sound of rushing water will help you relax. You can also use meditation music so you can relax more easily.  You can also try using incense or scented candles and see if that relaxes you better – for some people, starting at the candle’s flame helps them to focus their mind in the present.

Getting yourself ready – Before meditation make sure that it is that time of the day where you are most unlikely to be disturbed.  It is ideal to meditate before a meal rather than after because we tend to doze off whenever we’re full.  On the other hand, meditating when you’re hungry is not a sound idea either since it will be harder to concentrate in meditation when our mind is actually thinking about food.  As to your clothing, it doesn’t necessary have to be lose fitting, you just have to make sure that it doesn’t restraint your movements or your breathing when you start on your meditation.

Meditation, Your Mind, and Your Body

Don’t under-estimate the power of even a 3-minute meditation in your life.  It has been proven how just minutes of stillness could actually calm us down, make us think differently and let us see more clearly. Feel relaxed physiologically, psychologically, and even spirituality – with meditation.

Internet Marketing for Your Business

To ensure that your business will become successful you need to embrace the reality that internet marketing will play a big role in that. Making your business work is a full time job. This is especially so if you have an online business where you’re always open and it's always available to customers. This is one reason why you need to learn internet marketing strategies that could attract customers 24 hours a day.  The competition in the business world is also another reason why you need to dedicate time and effort for your internet marketing strategies in order to stand out in your chosen niche.

Internet Marketing Tips

Using testimonials from satisfied customers is a valid internet marketing strategy. A wide spread of happy customers reporting on the value of a website will encourage potential customers who identify with them to investigate the website further. Just a few personal stories of appreciation will show website visitors that the site's products and services can satisfy their needs.

A great tip to help you market yourself on the internet is to create your own profile on a developed community network site. Simply fill out your work history and get in touch with potential employers. It's one of the best ways to network professionally.

To market your business on the Internet, you should take advantage of social media. Sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube can be a great way to raise awareness of your brand. Just spending a few minutes a day on sites like these can significantly increase your business' level of visibility on the web.

To write clean and simple HTML code learn how to write web copy using the Markdown language. Markdown was developed to give web copywriters a simple way to build HTML code into an article (like H1 tags and ordered lists) that is as clean as possible. Many content management systems allow the Markdown syntax directly in their post editing software.

Internet Marketing Quick Idea

Brand yourself up. Make a logo, a saying, or even a simple title that will carry into everything you do. When people start to recognize your brand, success is on the way. Market your website just like you would a product: acknowledge the shortfalls, but be sure to praise the uniqueness.

These are just some of the internet marketing tips that I use myself to market my own business.  There are still more to come in my future posts!  For now, try these for yourself and let me know how you’re doing with your internet marketing.

  • It’s always a great idea to make your own, in as much that there are fast-food smoothies available, you’ll be much in control of what goes into your smoothies if you’re making it yourself.
  • Make use of fruits or vegetable in season, visit your local farmer’s market and see what they have.  That way you can ensure that you’re using on the freshest of ingredients.
  • Be watchful of the ingredients especially when you are having your smoothie as meal, check that you have protein and fiber to help keep you full.
  • Try to avoid ingredients that will give you calories in form of sugar and saturated fat.  You want to make sure of course that your healthy smoothies are ‘healthy.’
  • Examples of those ingredients are flavored yogurt (always go for the plain one), whipped cream, canned fruit in syrup, sugar-sweetened fruit juice, or full-fat dairy products.
  • Take note of the proportion as well, aim for 300-400 calories if you’re having your smoothies for meal and keep it below 300 if it’s for snack or in-between meals.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment on ingredients that may sound unfamiliar or unusual for your liking because you’ll never know, it could easily become your favorite.  For instance try adding flaxseed, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger.
