Worried you’re not getting enough calcium? Well here’s a Smart Tip that literally grows your calcium intake! All calcium comes from the ground, and animals eat it in the form of plants and you eat it in your meat and dairy. However, a great way to get plenty of calcium in absorbable forms is to cut out the middleman. Eat a wide variety of fresh organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fresh herbs. A great idea would be to throw a few pinches of fresh dried herbs in all your sauces, soups, and stews. You could also carry almonds or brazil nuts on hand as a great snack. These nuts are healthy, nutritious and high in calcium. You could consider adding sesame seeds to your next stir-fry or flax seeds to your bowl of oatmeal, both great calcium sources. And don’t forget those dark leafy greens like turnips, mustard, and dandelion greens, collards, and kale are also excellent. In addition to diet, be mindful of the quality of food you eat and the environments you live in, because toxic food, living spaces, and work spaces can rob your body of calcium. Many calcium supplements have low absorption rates, and dairy allergies are becoming increasingly common, so great, fresh, organic, vegetarian sources of calcium are definitely the way to go. I’m Jennifer Kelly with CompleteWellnessStartsHere.com, thanks for taking the time to watch my Smart Tip on Growing your Calcium.

How do you know if you are physically toxic? Well I have a Smart Tip that will give you some tell tale signs. Fatigue all day is a big indicator, but the average toxic person feels an energy crash around 3 or 4pm most days, and that’s when they usually reach for their coffee or energy drink to get a second wind. This is a huge sign of physical toxins. When this happens, think about what you ate for breakfast or lunch. Was it clean food, meaning organic, pesticide-free, and was your meat grass-fed and free of antibiotics? Or was it processed food filled with fillers and chemicals? Clean food feeds your body with energy and nutrients your body is craving, and processed foods depletes your body of nutrients. Your heart has to work overtime to pump potassium and calcium into your blood stream, so that your body stays alkaline, toxins are very acidic. You must always keep a PH balance to have complete wellness. Having awareness of what you are eating is key in staying healthy and feeling energized and most importantly, staying toxin free. I’m Jennifer Schaefer with CompleteWellnessStartsHere.com. Thank you for watching.

Hydration is Key!

“We need 4 hugs a day for survival.

We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance.

We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” –Virginia Satir

 

If only hugs were enough to keep our bodies and minds maintained while working our way up the corporate ladder!

There are so many nutritional and health factors for women to remember if we want to maintain overall well-being, keep focused at work and have enough energy to handle all of our everyday responsibilities. Eating balanced meals and keeping them as healthy as possible is a major start. Another huge factor is remaining hydrated!

Tips for staying hydrated:

  1. Keep a bottle of water with you during the day. A reusable water bottle can be filled from the tap, which is less expensive and more environmentally friendly than bottled water.
  2. If plain water doesn’t interest you, try adding a slice of lemon or lime to your drink.
  3. When exercising, make sure you drink water before, during and after your workout.
  4. Start and end your day with a glass of water.
  5. When you’re feeling hungry, drink water. The sensation of thirst is often confused with hunger.
  6. Drink water on a schedule if you tend to forget to drink water. (Drink water when you wake up; at breakfast, lunch and dinner; and when you go to bed. Or drink a small glass of water at the top of each hour.)
  7. Drink water when you go to a restaurant. Not only does it keep you hydrated, but it’s free!

Sleep Better Starting Tonight

I know that I always find my schedule packed with work and personal responsibility, and the first thing I give up in order to meet everyone else’s needs is my sleep.

Ebben, PhD, assistant professor of psychology in neurology, the Center for Sleep Medicine, New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Medical College of Cornell University. “Managing what you do is the most important factor to help you sleep at night.”
