Keeping Busy During the Holiday Season

Fitness requires us to examine more than just our exercise routine. The mere definition of fitness refers to the body’s ability to meet physical stresses. That includes coping with our day to day life, getting from the beginning of the day to the end, without being worn completely out.

It’s been a busy holiday season for us at home. I’m been trying to juggle between some work and keeping little junior occupied. Then I need to work on the Personal Creations for the parents’ community and I have yet to order the right banner for them. Then I need to find time to exercise and keep myself healthy and fit…so the list of things to do continues…

In order to be truly fit, we find ways to rid ourselves of built up stress, the kind that begins to affect our muscles, muscle tone, and composition. Massages are the best cure for ridding our bodies of the stress buildup that can occur, even with exercise regimens and detract from our overall fitness.

Exercises that demand total body involvement are the best for maintaining and improving your level of fitness most effectively. Running, swimming, jogging, dancing, cycling, and very brisk walking are some of the more popular total body involvement exercises.

There are so many occasions to stop and question our efforts at maintaining optimal health, that we usually donĂ­t even take the time to begin the examination. But it is beneficial to our overall health, the quality and quantity of our life, to make every effort to be fit, healthy, individuals.

Health Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is here and it feels like yesterday I had became a mommy! As I looked back, being a mom has been a wonderful journey and I had since learned a thing or two on natural health remedies for children too!

My little boy came home yesterday with a couple of small gifts that he bought from the MOther’s day stall in school. He was so happy about the gifts he chose. And I was touched by his little thoughts of kindness. There are many ways to show our love to our moms and you can order flowers online, buy a box of chocolate or choose a new mom gift from Sharis Berries. The internet has lots of choices and it’s convenient and easy. I don’t think we’ll have a celebration but it’s just going to be a family affair. I used to buy some health products for my mom in the past and she’s been spoilt by all the good vitamins I bought!

There are lots of good health gifts to choose from at MarketHealth so if you are looking for something for yourself or mom, head down for a look and take your pick! How about this lash enhancer for nicer lashes for your eyes?

Gardening is Relaxing

It has been a busy two weeks with school holidays and the long easter break. I haven’t been sleeping too well due to a bad neck and I can’t wait for a good chiropractic massage next week. I find myself scrunching for time to relax and one of the best ways is to get into the garden and do some herb pruning!

When it comes to relaxation, there are many things one can do. Besides laying on the couch with a good book and sipping a cup of coffee in the lounge, I love gardening. It is relaxing and fulfilling for me to see my herbs grow and thriving. One of the things I love to get is a bonsai tree for my garden. Though I know little about pruning or looking after a bonsai, I like the look of it. Having one in the patio or lounge table will be nice and I’m only concerned if my six year old will ‘prune’ it since he likes to keep himself busy! Since Mother’s day is around the corner, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get hubby to buy me a nice bonsai, huh?

For now, I would better head off to my garden to prune those herb plants of mine before the next bout of rain is here!
