How To Stay Fit At Home

how to stay fit at homeHave you made a commitment to fitness but you don’t like to go to the gym? We have some great ways for you to stay fit at home.

No matter what shape you’re in, fitness is important to your health and you can find easy ways to stay fit. However, like many others, maybe you’d rather meet your fitness goals without having to go to the gym! The good news is that it’s easy to get fit and healthy right in the comfort of your own home.

Exercise at Home in Your Everyday Activities

Your passion for fitness can easily be fulfilled by the very activities you do at home and take for granted. In fact, you probably burn the most calories when you’re not consciously trying to do so. So what are you waiting on? Give yourself the opportunity you truly deserve to be fit once and for all!

Try these easy tips for staying fit at home:

1. Get busy in the kitchen. Would you believe that spending time in the kitchen could actually help you achieve your fitness goals? Of course, if the time in your culinary quarters involves tasting everything you’re preparing, you might not exactly get the full benefit! Rearrange the pantry, slice some veggies, and wash the dishes to burn those extra calories.

2. Groom the garden. Gardening is a wonderful way to help you stay fit at home. You can prune the roses, water the shrubs, or pull out the mower if you’re up to it. You’ll work up a sweat in no time!

3. Have a garage sale. In all likelihood, you probably have tons of stuff that you don’t need. So why not dig them up, have a garage sale and burn some calories all at once? Climbing into those cupboards you haven’t seen the back of for years will definitely stretch muscles you never knew existed.

4. Spend the day in the laundry room. Doing laundry is also a great way to help you stay in shape at home. Moving loads of clothes from laundry hampers to the washer and dryer can certainly leave you breathless – in a good way! Who knew that cleaning linens and dirty soccer jerseys could be this beneficial?

5. Make your home spotless. Cleaning is an age-old technique for getting in shape at home. Turn those tedious tasks into fun, fitness-building activities: turn the radio up and dance while sweeping or mopping. Housecleaning will help you meet your fitness goals by:

• Getting your cardiovascular system pumping
• Putting all your muscle groups to work
• Improving your overall strength

Get Fit While Watching TV

To give your fitness mission a boost, consider doing exercises at home. Perhaps you simply prefer to exercise in a private place rather than the gym where everyone else can gawk at you. The easiest way to do that is to use exercise DVDs right in your living room.

The market is filled with many options for exercise DVDs. There are different programs for weight training, abdominal exercises, and aerobic, full-body workouts. You can even go a step further by trying out yoga or Pilates DVDs. It all really depends on what your preferences are.

Another option is to exercise while watching your favorite movies or shows. As long as you’re active while watching, the more TV you watch, the fitter you’ll get! Pick up a kettlebell or some hand weights and the time you spend lifting will go fast as you’re engrossed in your show!

These tips can inspire you to make your fitness goals a reality by getting active at home. Achieving the results you want is truly more possible than you think if you utilize your household chores and activities for everything they’re worth.

Next time you feel inclined to label a Saturday a Work Day, switch it up and name it a Workout Day because that’s just what you’ll be doing! Knowing that those formerly tedious activities can actually make a difference in your fitness level can add a spark of enjoyment to the routine.

Mental Fatigue and Your Health

mental fatigue

Are you mentally tired much of the time? Did you know that long-term mental fatigue can take a toll on your body and affect your health?

It can actually be worse than physical fatigue because of a person’s inability to think clearly or express their feelings and frustrations. Worse still, mental stress is known to cause physical fatigue and illness, too!

Mental Fatigue

Mental fatigue or exhaustion may be a result of your work, family life, conflict, or even a lack of quality sleep. If you have to make an important decision, mental stress can take its toll on you and can even lead to severe depression. This is all the more reason to avoid the consequences and implement strategies to overcome mental fatigue!

How to Relax your Mind and Boost your Energy

Relaxation is absolutely necessary to relieve mental stress and rejuvenate your body and mind. You’re probably thinking, “How am I going to do that?” Well, it’s easy. Here are some tips to help you reduce mental exhaustion and start implementing a relaxation routine:

* Take time out for yourself. Spend time in a quiet room where you can reflect and get in touch with your spiritual side. Everyone has a different way of self-reflection. Some pray or meditate, others write in a journal or diary, while others simply allow their thoughts to gently release into the darkness and quietness of the room.

* Get plenty of sleep. Mental fatigue can exist no matter how much sleep you get, but sleep does help refresh your body and mind. Getting adequate sleep will eliminate a lot of your day-to-day stress. After all, the body will have a chance to repair itself and recharge.

* Free your mind from the problems that swirl around you. Take your mind off of those things that are causing you stress by working on a puzzle or spending time with friends and family. Or perhaps you need to go out for a nice dinner or weekend getaway to free your mind.

* Exercise regularly. Exercise causes your brain to release endorphins, which are known to make you feel happy. It’s like the body’s natural “high.” Even if all you can do is take a 15-minute walk, take it. That can be great alone time for you.

* Try breathing exercises. When things get rough, take deep breaths in through your nose, hold it for 10 seconds, then release. You’ll notice that this will relieve tension.

* Take a day in which you can do things by yourself. Take yourself out to a movie, go to a museum or art gallery, or do something you’ve always wanted to do but never made time for. In doing so, you’ll be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of being alone.

take action

These are just some of the strategies to combat mental fatigue. You may have some other methods that help you relax and find peace in your life. Once you begin integrating these simple exercises into your day, you will begin to feel the weight lifted of your shoulders and before you know it, you’ll feel like a brand new person!

Five Key Strategies for Staying Healthy this Winter

Americans get more than one billion colds a year. So why is it that we have smartphones but still no cure for colds and flu? It’s because we’re dealing with smart viruses. Any one of hundreds of viruses could launch a cold or flu attack, and chances are that this year’s flu virus won’t be the same as last year’s. That’s because viruses have the uncanny ability to constantly morph into new variations, making it nearly impossible to develop a simple cure.

Having said that, there’s still much you can do to stay strong and healthy all winter. Talk to your doctor about the best ways to protect yourself and give these prevention strategies a try:

  1. Wash Your Hands: Washing hands remains the most effective way to protect yourself and your family from colds and flu. Lather, rinse, repeat throughout the day. Do it long enough to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
  2. Get Enough Sleep: Sleep may be your immune system’s secret weapon, according to recent scientific research. Less than seven hours of sleep a night made people three times more likely to catch a cold than those who got eight or more hours of zzzs.
  3. Exercise: While very vigorous physical activity (like running a marathon) can put a damper on your immune system, most scientists agree that moderate physical activity actually helps boost the immune cells that fight off invaders.
  4. Fuel Yourself with Good Nutrition: An orange a day (along with strawberries, bell peppers, potatoes, and other vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables) can help keep the doctor away. Lean meat, fish, and other protein sources also provide the amino acids needed to help maintain your immune system. Don’t forget to fill in nutritional gaps with immune supporting nutrients like zinc and vitamins D, A, C and E. Harvard scientists even suggest vitamin D supplements may help reduce the occurrences of colds. The scientists found low vitamin D levels in nearly 20,000 Americans increased their cold and flu risk.
  5. Power up with Plant Extracts: Scientific research has led to the discovery of a combination of plant extracts that naturally boost the body’s own production of interferon, a component of the immune system that helps fight off viruses. Other plant compounds found in elderberry and echinacea extracts can help, too. Take these when you feel the first sign of something coming on, and continue taking them for about a week as needed.

Take care of your immune system, so it can take care of you. Start your natural nutrition plan right now! Also, learn more about Natural Interferon (NutriFeron) and how it can help strengthen your immune system.

Natural Interferon & Ways to Boost Your Immune System

It’s October. That means shorter days, colder temperatures, and winter right around the corner. From now through May it’s also the time of year we call cold and flu season. In fact, the average adult gets two to three colds a year, and every year about 200,000 people are hospitalized because of the flu. If you get sick, that’s trouble. You won’t be able to keep up with your kids, your spouse, coworkers, and friends. Simply put, there’s just no time for illness! Protect your health so you can protect your family, and start early to stay strong all winter.

Your immune system’s got your back. And your front. All of you, inside and out. Good thing, too, because you’re surrounded by bacteria all the time. A tiny square inch of your skin can contain 50 million of them. Most are harmless. But some, such as viruses, can be downright dangerous. As a catchall, we call them germs.

Your body has powerful microscopic armed forces to combat germs. Billions of white blood cells vigilantly patrol through the blood stream. Special fighting units, cells in your bloodstream called macrophages (Greek for big eaters) attack germs by surrounding them and digesting them. Other cells make powerful chemicals called antibodies. They are anti, or against, these foreign bodies and attack the outsides of germs. They team with other specialized germ fighters called T cells.

Each kind of germ has an outer layer that’s different than those on other germs. Antibodies your body produced to fight off last year’s flu virus can’t get a grip on this year’s model. So your immune system has to go back to the drawing board and make new antibodies. But the good news is germs can’t fool your immune system twice. Once your body has withstood an attack by a specific germ, the antibody making cells remain on alert. They’re ready to rumble if the same germs show up again.

Last but not least, your immune system makes the almighty fighter interferon. It interferes with invading viruses trying to replicate themselves inside your cells. Interferon also helps activate macrophages and other immune defenses, including natural killer cells (cells that detect and start killing tumor cells) even before antibodies attach to their outsides, providing a crucial and early assault.

Every day our bodies are under attack by pathogens and dangerous microbes that infest
our surroundings with an unseen, unfelt, yet undeniable health threat. Our body’s built-in
immune system protects us whenever possible, but it’s under constant attack from poor
nutrition, stress, pollution, and fatigue. Natural Interferon (NutriFeron) is a powerful breakthrough in immune system science.  It rapidly activates your immune system’s defenses.

You’re immune system may be complex, but some simple lifestyle habits can help keep it strong. A healthful diet, exercise, supplements, lowering stress, and more can make a difference in maintaining a healthy immune system. Take care of your immune system, so it can take care of you.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

What changes are you making in your lifestyle to be more healthy and proactive? Do you research health & wellness companies before you buy their products? It’s really important to know more information on what kind of cleaners, skin care and supplements you are using. Remember to be proactive in your health prevention plan!

Today, I wanted to share a compelling scientific presentation that details the impressive research conducted on users of different kinds of supplements.  It was called the Landmark Dietary Supplement Study and it was conducted by the University of California at Berkeley, School of Public Health.  For 20 years (Yes! 20 years!), it studied the usage patterns, health and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users.

It was the first-of-its-kind study on long-term users of multiple dietary supplements.  It compared people who take multiple dietary supplements against those who use just a multivitamin against those who do not supplement at all.

The study showed that multiple supplement users:

  • Have markedly better health
  • 73% reduced risk of diabetes versus non-users
  • More optimum levels of health biomarkers
  • Normal levels of blood pressure
  • HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Triglycerides
  • C-reactive protein
  • Homocysteine

Here is a graph of how the three (Multiple Supplement Users, Single Supplement Users, and No Supplement Users) compared to one another:

Are you confused at where you should start?  Let me break it down for you.  Your three main concerns should be to eat healthy, supplement wisely and exercise.

Eat Healthy. Your healthy eating plan includes smart choices from every food group and emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk products. It also includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts and is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt, and added sugars.

Supplement Wisely. Make wise supplement choices a part of your daily routine. A comprehensive and balanced multivitamin/mineral supplement with at least 500 mg calcium and vitamin D just makes good sense. Antioxidant nutrients help protect cells against aging so be sure you’re considering the antioxidant vitamins C and E, and beta carotene. Ensure your intake of critical B vitamins including folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12, to help protect DNA and support healthy aging. Try to increase your intake of the omega three fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which have been associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease as well as improvements in inflammatory and metabolic balance. Finally, look to probiotic nutrition to support healthy digestion and immune function.

Exercise and Achieve a Healthy Weight. For the two out of every three Americans who are overweight or obese, losing weight is the first priority for improving health. Make regular physical activity a key component of your overall health management program to balance your caloric intake from food with the calories you expend each day. Try to be physically active for at least 30-60 minutes most days of the week and increase exercise duration or intensity for even greater health benefits or to help manage body weight.

Are you still not sure what supplements to take?  Or do you not know of a good quality brand you could trust?  It’s hard to navigate your way through all of the different supplements out there.  Each brand is saying, “pick me!”

Lucky for me, I have grown up with a quality brand and have been taking it my whole life.  (Thanks to my Mom for doing the research for me!)  Here are a few supplements you should be taking on a daily basis to achieve optimal health.  (I link to each product.)

I strongly recommend everyone take this:

These will help supplement your multivitamin/multimineral supplement:

Remember, it’s important to be an informed consumer.  Don’t let brands walk all over you.  Do your research!

How To Improve Health: You Are What You Eat

Small changes can make a difference. Cutting out certain foods and replacing them with healthier and more nutritious foods can make a huge difference in your health.  I wanted to share a few tips with you today that will help you achieve optimal health.  Even if you don’t have a health challenge at the moment, it is very important to be proactive in health prevention.

Here are 3 steps that inform you what you should be cutting out of your diet:

Step 1: Cut back on fast foods.

  • Research shows a 50% increase in risk of obesity and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes when you eat fast food.
  • Fast foods are packed with salt, calories, sugar and preservatives.

Step 2: Cut back on junk foods.

  • Limit intake of snack foods like: cookies, candy, and potato chips.
  • Junk foods have a lot of calories and little nutrition.

Step 3: Reduce soda intake.

  • On average, it contains 140 calories and 9 teaspoons of sugar per serving.
  • Drinking one soda a day can lead to a weight gain of 15 lbs per year.
  • It is high in phosphorus, which can lead to a demineralization of bones and teeth.
  • Diet sodas still contribute to craving sweets.

Now that we covered the things you SHOULDN’T do, here are a few things you SHOULD do for a healthy lifestyle:

DO Eat A Healthy Diet:

What are Phytonutrients?

  • Natural bioactive compounds in plants that confer colors to fruits and vegetables.
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin in dark-green, leafy vegetables like spinach.
  • Lycopene in red tomatoes.
  • Beta carotene in orange carrots.
  • Anthocyanins in purple grapes.

Eat Plenty of Omega-3s:

  • AHA recommends two servings of fish per week.

Omega-3s can help:

  • Lower blood pressure and triglycerides.
  • Reduce risk of sudden death from heart attack.
  • Essential for brain function and good health.
  • Important for the health of skin, hair, nails and eyes.

Use Fish Oil Supplement:

  • Fish can be contaminated with heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs.
  • EPA cautions eating certain types of fish for pregnant women, nursing mothers and children.

Keep A Healthy Intestine:

Manage Your Weight:

This could be you!

This could be you!

Remember, you can take control of your health!  If you can take the time to care for your car and get the right parts for it, then you can definitely take the time to maintain good health.  Be proactive with your health prevention plan!


Health Prevention

Did you know the top causes of death are largely PREVENTABLE?

  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

YOU are in charge of your health.

Life expectancy has increased. Modern science has provided vaccines, antibiotics, and drugs.  However, poor lifestyle choices have an impact.

Chronic degenerative conditions are prevalent.

  • 72 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure).
  • 134 million Americans are overweight to obese.
  • 20 million have diabetes.
  • Many are taking medications for: metabolic syndrome and elevated cholesterol levels.

Top killer diseases are LARGELY preventable.  Nutrition and weight management play a role. 700,000 Americans die each year of heart disease. It’s estimated that 80% are preventable. 95% of type 2 diabetes is also preventable.

80% of your health depends upon your lifestyle choices. ONLY 20% is due to your genetics and family history.

Take CHARGE NOW. Be ready to make changes and assess your risks.  Read through these questions and keep count of the ones that apply to you.

  • Has anyone in your immediate family ever been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, or cancer?
  • Are you concerned about your immune system’s ability to fight off a cold or flu during the winter months?
  • Do you find yourself regularly running out of energy or lacking the energy needed to get through your day?
  • Do you struggle with your weight? (e.g. recently gained weight or or find it harder to maintain a healthy weight as you get older)
  • Do you find it a challenge to eat 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day?
  • Do you regularly crave high sugar or high fat foods?
  • Is your cholesterol higher than you would like it to be?
  • On most days, does the level of stress in your life feel out of control?
  • Do you find it challenging to get the recommended amount of exercise? (e.g. 30 minutes, most days of the week)
  • Do you have difficulty sleeping three nights or more a week? (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up frequently in the middle of the night, wake up too early and have trouble falling back asleep)

If you answered YES to these questions:

1-3 times – On a path to good health

4-5 – A balancing act

6-7+ – Time to regain control

There are five healthy lifestyle choices you can make that will impact your health.

5 Healthy Lifestyle Choices:

  • Good Nutrition
  • Weight Management
  • Fitness
  • Stress Management
  • Right Supplements

It’s really important to make sure you have all of these five lifestyle choices in check.  Good nutrition, weight management, fitness, and stress management can be very tricky to manage in our busy, hectic lives.  It is okay to slip up every once in a while, but you should try your best to maintain good health.

I believe the easiest healthy lifestyle choice is supplementing.  It is very simple to swallow a few vitamins everyday, and it can have a major impact on your health!  However, it can be very difficult to know what supplements are best to take.  There are so many choices out there, and some of them can actually be doing more harm than good.  Make sure you always stay away from the synthetic vitamins.

Here is a great, informational video on choosing the right supplements for you.  It is targeted towards college students, but it can benefit anyone of any age. Click on this link to view the video:

Stop Dieting and Start Living

One pound is equal to 3,500 calories. Decreasing your diet by 500 calories a day means you will lose one pound in a week. Sounds simple, right?

Diets are deceiving.  Majority of people believe once you have reached your goal weight you can stop the hassle of counting or measuring at each meal. While it is true you can slowly add more calories back into your diet, it is not the time to run back to your old habits.

Here are three big problems with diets:

  1. Some diets call for the removal of an entire food group. This can lead to a quicker regain once a person begins eating this food group again.
  2. Skipping meals or fasting during a diet will only slow down your metabolism.
  3. Many think when they reach their goal they can go back to their old habits.

You need to think of dieting as teaching you to create a new and healthy lifestyle.  No diet should exempt a food group or tell you to skip meals. This will only hurt you in the long run. You need to teach yourself how to eat better and still enjoy the foods you are eating. There is no harm in having a small dessert once a week, if it’s the correct portion.

You can still enjoy your favorite foods when you’re on a diet.


Your favorite dairy products like milk, cheeses, and yogurt can be purchased in lower fat versions of themselves making them a great purchase for dieters.  Some products can be found with up to 50 percent less calories and fat than the original but the same great taste. Elaina Magee, MPH, RD, WebMD and WebMD Blogger for the” Recipe Doctor”, says “You can trim calories effortlessly if you use low-fat and lighter products and if the product is mixed in with other ingredients, no one will ever notice.”


Pasta and breads are a go when dieting, if you choose the right ones. Whole grain food choices are full of fiber that fills you up and keeps you full longer. Be careful to watch out for add-ons such as butters, sauces and dressings that can add hidden calories!


Load your kitchen with colorful fruits and vegetables. Perfect on a salad or bowl of cereal they fill you up without adding a lot of extra calories. Buy them fresh during peak seasons and frozen in the winter.


Low fat or proportioned desserts are great for dieters. Certain brands of ice cream and cookies come in proportioned containers only carrying 100 to 200 calories. These are easy to grab and go with out the hassle of counting and measuring while still enjoying your favorite snacks.

Do not deprive yourself of any food group when trying to reach your magic number. It is possible to life a healthy, nutritious lifestyle while eating your favorite foods. Learn to look for key words such as low fat, fat free or low calorie.

Stop dieting and change your lifestyle.

Resveratrol Benefits

We are all trying to find a way to live longer, feel younger, and have a better quality of life as we grow older. However, with products stating ways to look and feel younger everywhere what are we supposed to believe?  Well there may be an easy solution to this problem without buying chemicals and artificial products. The simple answer is to drink more red wine. Red wine contains a special ingredient called resveratrol that has many health benefits including prolonged life, help with diabetes, and lowered cholesterol.

Scientists have learned through the study of animals (specifically some cold water fish) that these animals do not age in the same way other creatures do. Something in their genes controls the pace of aging, and researchers believe that humans have this gene as well. Resveratrol research seems to have found a trigger in the human body that can help prevent aging.

Resveratrol and polyphenols from the grapes that make our wine have been found to benefit our cells in a positive way. They help with heart health, brain health, cardiovascular health, joint health, and immune health. Here are some more specific ways resveratrol can help us:

  • can keep our cells from aging
  • may prevent neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
  • kills cancer cells, protects against and helps symptoms of arthritis and AIDS
  • suppresses inflammation
  • has antibacterial and antiviral effects
  • promotes vitality and prolongs life

Science tells us that with resveratrol and polyphenols, we can reduce life-shortening diseases like cancer, Diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. The ability to put enough active ingredients into a natural supplement that has no side effects, only side benefits, is truly a breakthrough in health and wellness. The great part about this is that we don’t have to wait for a medication because we have potent resveratrol supplements available now.

We have learned the resveratrol has many great health benefits. However, all resveratrol products are not equal and we should be cautious when picking one out. Here are some things to to keep in mind when looking for a resveratrol supplement.

  • Make sure the formulation is pure, or else it can produce unwanted digestive side effects
  • It is important that the correct amount be included in a daily serving dose so that results can be realized
  • Use products that contain ingredients of high quality or you may not get the full benefit
  • The company behind the resveratrol should do its own research and science on the products so that the formulation they produce is safe and able to be absorbed by the body.

A longer life that is filled with vitality, good health, and the opportunity to stay active as we age is something we all want. We need to take action today and be in control of our own good health. With today’s technology and products this quest has become easier than ever. Hopefully, this will lead us to success in our quest for healthy longevity.

If you are ready to take action, but are having trouble finding the best resveratrol product that is right for you, I would be happy to help you and lead you in the right direction.  Leave a comment and I will get back to you right away!

Here is an article that can help educate you more on Resveratrol. 



A Healthy Home is a Happy Home


Growing up with two sisters I understood the “sharing” thing. One of the first things my mom taught us was not too share cups. My sisters and I each had our own cup, pink, blue and yellow.  No matter where we took our cups we knew not to drink out of the cup that didn’t belong to us. Even to this day I never drink from a cup that does not belong to me

Research shows three out of four times when one sibling is sick the others become sick as well. Moms, including my own, try their best to reduce this statistic.

My mom started with simple tasks like teaching us how to properly wash our hands. A two for one learning experience included learning the ABCs and how long to wash our hands. Learning proper hygiene from an early age reduces the risk of missing school and infecting others in your household.

I’m living proof. I claimed the perfect attendance award during my elementary school years.


We never used the word diet in my house but the word diet doesn’t have to mean cutting calories. It means being smart about what your family is eating. I never struggled to find food I enjoyed. My sisters were a different story. My mom made a game out of our eating habits. Each week she would set a goal. For example, a goal may be to try two new vegetables by the end of the week and when it was completed we could put a sticker on our chart. Who ever had the most stickers at the end of the week had the honor of picking what was for dinner that night.

This was a fun and easy way to get everyone in my family involved in making healthier choices. If dietary restrictions prevent one family member from enjoying a certain food group, encourage them to find a supplement providing them with the same vitamins and minerals.


Soccer, gymnastics, basketball and track overflowed our calendar. Having multiple schedules to follow during the week made our house stressful. It’s important to focus on your family’s peace of mind as part of their health. My family set aside a part of the evening for family dinner time and Friday nights for game or movie night. This was an easy way to make sure we had time during the week to take a break from our busy schedules and get the rest we needed.


Living on a broke-college kid budget, I started my first college semester buying whatever cleaning products were on sale. What I never knew was my budget was making me sick. I struggled through strep throats, colds, the flu and other endless bugs going around campus.

Then my mom stepped in stocking my medicine cabinet and shelves with vitamins, teas and green cleaners. Needless to say I spend the spring happy and healthy.


Thank you Mom for teaching me the ABCs, how to share and how to take care of myself. It has been one of the most important lessons I’ve learned my entire life and quite possibly the reason I’m the strong, healthy, happy person I am today.
