COMFORT IS BEAUTY

Brilliant Uses for Baking Soda

Healthy lifestyles are more then just what you eat and how much you exercise. Being healthy extends to every area of our lives, including cleaning products, deodorizers, personal care products and much more. Today we’re looking at the brilliant uses of baking soda as a natural and healthier alternative to many traditional products.

Brilliant Uses for Baking SodaCleaning with Baking Soda

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) makes a fantastic cleaning agent because it neutralizes and buffers to balance the pH of just about everything. It is a completely natural substance so it’s a wonderful alternative to harsh chemical-laden cleaning products. Plus, baking soda is sold in a fine powder that helps it penetrate and dissolve quickly and effectively.

Baking soda cleans a variety of surfaces like kitchen and bathroom counters, floors, ovens, microwaves, furniture, cars, bathtubs, and sinks. It can clean dishes, sponges and hair brushes, polish silver, and sanitize coffee pots. You can add baking soda to your laundry detergent to maximize its cleaning capacity and keep clothes looking brighter too.

Deodorizing with Baking Soda

Those neutralizing and buffering powers of baking soda work wonders for odors as well. That’s why many people keep baking soda in their refrigerators to absorb some of the acidic scents that perforate the small space. Baking soda also helps freshen clothes, especially the particularly foul items like smelly sports gear or dirty cloth diapers. In addition, you can use it to quash the smell of trashcans, recycling bins, sink drains, carpets, shoes, car interiors, and stuffed toys.

Personal Care with Baking Soda

Looking good the natural way is better for your body. Baking soda can help you look fabulous in many ways with DIY beauty products or enhancing your existing products. Baking soda is a superb cleanser when you make a paste by simply adding water. Or create an exfoliant by including sugar granules as well. Add baking soda to hand soap or shampoo to intensify their cleansing properties or pour some in your bath when you need to get extra squeaky clean. You can also make your own toothpaste and deodorant using baking soda.

Other Uses of Baking Soda

When you have inflamed skin from dryness, bites, scratches or sores, baking soda can help you heal faster and keep the area protected from infection. Baking soda works wonders on drains if your sink or tub is clogged. Or keep some by the stovetop in case of a grease fire because it can subdue flames as it gives off carbon dioxide. Additionally, clean fruits and veggies with baking soda to remove germs and pesticides before eating.

Baking soda is a miraculous natural cleanser, deodorizer, and beauty enhancer, among other things. Try this natural solution in your healthy home.

International Volunteer Day

International Volunteer DayThis Monday, December 5 is International Volunteer Day. On this day designated by the United Nations Volunteer Program people from around the globe celebrate volunteerism for the vast contributions volunteering can make at every level of society.  The goal is to mobilize volunteers and connect organizations to willing volunteer participants. Private and governmental organizations are involved to increase interest and efforts in volunteerism.

Before International Volunteer Day comes and goes, we want to highlight some of the fantastic ways you can volunteer this season. Whether it’s on the designated awareness day or any other day in December or beyond, volunteering can make a big impact in your community and beyond.

There are endless causes that are worth your attention, time and energy but it is unrealistic to support them all. The first step is selecting a few volunteer areas that align with your passions and values. Consider what matters most or hits closest to home for you. Volunteer areas range from specific health issues, homelessness and hunger, to environmental causes, domestic violence and educational initiatives, to name a few. Even within these subsets there are a variety of volunteer opportunities where you can assist. Look for ones that are feasible for you.

With a focus on International Volunteer Day and giving back in honor of the holiday season, making a pledge to volunteer weekly or monthly is an excellent goal. While it’s lovely to devote time just during the holiday season to bring cheer to people in need or support a cause, help is needed year round. Use this time to commit yourself to making a difference.

Traditional methods of volunteering are always great. Planting trees, cleaning up parks and recreational areas, serving food at soup kitchens, delivering meals to the elderly or disabled people, sorting items at a women’s shelter, and collecting canned goods and toiletries for food banks are among the many ways you and your family can volunteer.

Another terrific way to volunteer is to draw on your own talents and expertise to help educate, inform and bring happiness to others. Look for needs in your community or online that match your skills. Perhaps an organization needs a newsletter or grant writer to help raise awareness or funds for their cause. Many schools that cater to low-income students offer afterschool programs where students can continue learning outside their core subjects, such as gardening, painting, dance or creative writing. Community centers may need assistance working with non-native speakers teaching English, computer skills or other important proficiencies that will help them get jobs.

Volunteering should be a rewarding experience for you. Whether you’re filling a direct need or creating an opportunity that draws on your own skills, whether it’s one day or a regular commitment, volunteering makes a difference in our world. Take part in International Volunteer Day by dedicating yourself to one or many volunteer opportunities in the near future.

Cyber Monday Shopping Tips

Cyber Monday Shopping TipsAfter the hustle-and-bustle of the Thanksgiving holiday and running around stores on Black Friday, you can sit back, relax and shop from home tomorrow, Cyber Monday. But are you really ready to check off the rest of your gift list and get the best deals? We have Cyber Monday shopping tips to get you revved up to shop your heart out tomorrow.

Get comfortable: You can’t shop smart if you’re uncomfortable. Pick your cozy spot, gather supplies like water and pen & paper, and select a comfy outfit. Cyber Monday is a great day for a leisure bra since you’ll be lounging and shopping Cyber Monday deals all day.

Make a List: Wandering aimlessly onto the internet without a list can be a disaster for your budget. Instead, make a list – hand-written, a formal spreadsheet or anything in-between – and stick to it. This will help make sure everyone on your gift list is covered for the holidays.

Know a good buy: On your list, jot down the regular price or a reasonable price range for the items you want to buy. This way you’ll know if you’re getting a good sale price on Cyber Monday.

Price Shop: Also, don’t rely on one store’s price. Look around at several stores for the same or similar items to find the very best price for the items you want. Keep track of where you find deals so you know where to ultimately make your purchases.

Know the best deal categories: Cyber Monday is known for fantastic online savings from many retailers. But the most popular deals and best savings tend to be on appliances, electronics, toys and clothes. If you’re unsure of prices on other categories, you may want to wait for other sales during the holiday season.

Shop the sales window: Just like brick-and-mortar stores, online retailers offer bigger savings at certain times of the day. For instance, some retailers have early bird specials or may even begin their sales the night before Cyber Monday. Know the best time to shop for the biggest savings, especially if your items are in limited supply.

Use coupons: For extra savings, pair Cyber Monday sales with coupons. If you don’t have any in hand, do a quick search online for coupons before each purchase. Sometimes a code for free shipping can save you a ton of money as well.

Buy discount gift cards: Discount gift card retailers can help you save additional percentages off your holiday items. Be sure you’re buying from a reputable site and if you’re hoping to make your purchases on Cyber Monday, only look for gift cards with online codes, not ones that will be mailed to your house.

Watch out for cyber theft: As always, protect your private information online by following internet safety protocol. Major retailers are generally safe but if you’re buying from unknown sources or person-to-person transactions, be careful.

Understand return policies and save receipts: When you’re on a roll securing Cyber Monday deals, sometimes you forget to think about the fine print. Know the stores’ return policies and keep your receipts in case you do need to return items. Also request gift receipts if you want the recipient to be able to return the item if necessary.

Have a blast shopping on Cyber Monday! We hope you shop smart, save big and everyone on your list enjoys their gifts!

The Importance of Female Role Models – Part 2

As we give thanks for all of the wonderment in our lives this holiday season, we’re focusing on female role models that support and inspire women. Thanksgiving is an excellent time to explore the importance of female role models and show your gratitude to these women who are changing the world and showing everyone how much powerful women can achieve.

The Importance of Female Role Models – Part 2Women Who Fight for Causes

We all believe in things but not many of us truly fight for causes we support. That’s why women who actively fight for causes are amazing female role models. The causes to stand up for are endless – diseases, prejudices, violence and inequality are just a few of the many areas where female activists have a huge impact. The passion from women who fight for causes is nothing short of inspirational. These women know that changing the course of a cause even a small degree at a time can alter its path significantly in the long run, a valuable lesson for us all.

Your Friends

You hang out with your friends all the time and you probably think they are swell. But do you ever stop to think about how amazing they are? You chose them as friends for a reason so celebrate those reasons and let those who you spend time with often be female role models.  You don’t have to admire everything about them but pick out the behaviors, attitudes and qualities that you respect and work on emulating them in those regards. Perhaps some friends have great parenting strategies, others are good environmentalists and a few are super volunteers. Pick up tips from each of the female role models in your friendship circle to become a better you.

Women Who Exude Body Confidence

Body image can be a major aspect of women’s lives. While some never struggle with it, others live a lifetime of self-loathing due to a negative body image perpetuated by others or their own internal conflict. Women who celebrate their bodies – no matter what shape or size – and exude body confidence can be some of the best female role models. These women understand that the value of a woman does not lie in her appearance, but rather her character. When body negativity clouds your true self, it’s hard to accomplish your dreams. But having a body positive attitude can change your outlook. Find female role models with body confidence to help you discover the same esteem from within.

Historical Figures

Want a female role model fix without having to do much work? Read a book about amazing female historical figures like Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Sacagawea, Gloria Steinem, or Amelia Earhart. These women and many more did extraordinary things to improve the world and defy the odds. Their inspiring life stories can be empowering examples of what women can achieve.

Female Producers, Directors and Writers

There’s not doubt we live in a media-driven society. Female producers, directors and writers who call attention to women’s issues and share them through documentaries, plays, television shows, movies and books should be hailed as female role models. They are using their medium to inform and influence others on important topics that women and communities face everyday. Experiencing these often unfamiliar challenges others face can be eye opening and provoke action.

Female role models can be a meaningful and inspiring way to help you on your journey to being the best “you.” Seek out female role models to support your goals and dreams, and give thanks for the ways they improve your life this Thanksgiving.

The Importance of Female Role Models – Part 1

Female role models are important at every stage and in every aspect of your life. Role models are not only for children. After all, at 30, 40, 50, and 60, aren’t you still evolving and striving to become the best “me” you can be? This lifelong journey of self-excellence (not perfection – perfection is not attainable) is one that is more inspired when female role models shed light on your path. As we near Thanksgiving we’re showing gratitude and highlighting the importance of female role models by sharing the types of female role models that you can benefit from in your life.

Female Business Executives

Whether you’re on an ambitious career track or taking time to raise a family; whether you’re just starting your career or a veteran team member; Female business executives are important role models for women. If you’re in the workforce and hoping to advance your career, look for female role models in your company at an executive or leadership level. Study their career path, how they interact with others and how they make decisions. These are the women who have successfully navigated the career you eventually hope to achieve. If your company has a mentoring program, ask to be paired with a female role model you admire or seek out an informal mentoring relationship with the leader. Even if you’re not currently working in a company with top female executives, find networking and lecturing opportunities so you can learn from female business executives.

Female Troops and Law Enforcement

Women in the military and law enforcement have unique challenges. Like their male counterparts, they trained hard and risk their lives to help keep you safe in the domestically and abroad. However these brave females have added challenges because their jobs are physically and mentally demanding and this arena has been traditionally designated for men. Working in a field where men dominate and being constantly compared to male colleagues makes female troops and law enforcement officers work much harder to maintain the skills and confidence they need to perform their jobs well. These noble women deserve our unwavering gratitude for devoting their lives to protect us.

The Importance of Female Role Models – Part 1Women in Your Family

It can be easy to forget that the women closest to you – your mother, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and cousins – are excellent female role models. These are the women who nurtured you from birth, who worked hard to provide for you and were always there for you. Furthermore the women in your family probably imparted the morals and values that you live by today. Not every female family member will be exactly the person you want to become but you can gleam small lessons from each of them.

Female Politicians

Whether you agree with all of their politics or not, female politicians help protect women’s rights. Through legislature and programs, female politicians create change that supports progress for women in our country and in the world. Plus, women leadership in our government balances representation to ensure voices are heard from a variety of perspectives that is more realistic to the population. Women including Madeleine Albright, Sandra Day O’Connor and Frances Perkins (the first female cabinet member under FDR) are terrific examples of female role models and politicians.

Teachers, Doctors, Nurses, Coaches and Caregivers

Women in daily roles that affect your life and the lives of your children have a critical position in molding opinions, values and future women. Teachers, doctors, nurses, coaches and caregivers are female role models who we interact with regularly and whose influence impacts us greatly. From learning to be intelligent and competent people and playing sports, to our health and well-being, these are important female role models in our lives.

Later this week we’ll share five more female role models that are important to celebrate and show our gratitude for this Thanksgiving.

The Health Benefits of Cold Showers

The Health Benefits of Cold ShowersIt may seem that cooler weather warrants warmer showers but you may want to consider keeping your shower knob on the colder side. There are many health benefits of cold showers ranging from your immune strength and emotional state, to the cleanliness and appearance of your skin and hair. If a cold shower is unbearable for the entirety of your shower time, try turning down the temperature for the last few minutes to reap these health benefits of cold showers:

Alertness: Being drenched in cold water is shocking to the body. In fact, it is so shocking that you will take deeper breaths to keep warm. This increases oxygen intake and stimulates more blood flow therefore making you more alert and ready to face the day ahead. If coffee isn’t enough to wake you up, a cold shower may do the trick.

Immunity: Similarly, as blood circulates more rapidly and efficiently from cold water, it energizes bodily organs helping them function optimally. As organ capacity improves, so does your ability to fight off sickness and disease. Additionally, cold stimulus decreases uric acid levels and increases antioxidant optimization to help your body more effectively combat free radical damage to cells. Therefore that cold shower can help keep you healthier this fall and winter despite all of the seasonal germs.

Emotional Wellbeing: Studies show that hydrotherapy can have mood-boosting benefits including reducing depression and anxiety. Cold water stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and increases endorphins, noradrenalin and norepinephrine, all of which can make you feel happier. Ultimately cold showers can have anti-depressant and anti-anxiety benefits.

Muscle Relief: Much like a cold compress, cold showers can relieve muscle soreness even before you feel it. After workouts, cold showers not only cool you down and wash away the sweat, they also may prevent you from feeling pain the next day.

Weight Loss: Amazingly, cold showers may help your weight loss goals. Coldness activates good fat cells known as brown fat cells. One study showed that regular cold showers increased brown fat cells so significantly that people could lose up to 9 lbs. a year just by bathing in cold water.

Better Skin & Hair: Cold water helps tighten pores all over the body and scalp. This prevents dirt and pathogens from entering the body through your largest organ and keeps skin and hair healthier and more radiant.

The health benefits of cold showers may be somewhat surprising. Give it a go and reap these fantastic health benefits of cold showers.

Make the Most of Time Spent in your Car

Make the Most of Time Spent in your CarIf you have a long commute to work or drive kids carpools to school and other activities, you might end up spending a significant part of your day in your car. It can be boring, frustrating and unproductive, or you can rewrite the story and make changes to use your car time wisely. Make the most of time spent in your car by adopting one or more of our ideas:

Listen to a Book on Tape: Well, books aren’t really on tapes anymore, but you catch our drift. Books on tape (or CD or YouTube or downloads) are an engaging way to make the most of time spent in your car. It may not be the same as running your eyes across a page or turning the pages of a book, but listening to a book gives you the same opportunity to enjoy a story and let your imagination go wild. Many popular books are available for audio download or return to classics you once read or somehow skipped. Audio books can make you look forward to your car ride in anticipation of hearing more of the story.

Jam Out to your Favorite Tunes: An energizing soundtrack is not exclusive to Rocky. Pump yourself up for the day ahead or for an enjoyable evening by playing your favorite songs and bopping along to the beat. This can get your mind and body moving, even in the car, and increase blood flow for more energy. Also, hearing your favorite songs can change your mood. Rather than being angry at traffic, you can let it all melt away into the music.

Meditate and Breathe: Sure, traffic can be infuriating sometimes but practicing meditation, breathing and mindfulness can be just what you need to not only survive your daily car time but become a better person. These activities can be done anywhere so it may as well be your car where you’re spending gobs of time anyways. You never know, you may have your best ideas when you least expect them because you’ve set your mind free. Of course don’t be completely captivated by your thoughts that you are a careless driver and please don’t close your eyes when meditating while driving!

Catch Up with Friends and Family: Make a list of friends and family you’d like to keep in touch with more closely and jot down when they are available during the day. When you’re in the car during their window, give them a jingle to find out what’s happening in their lives. Chances are catching up will be heartwarming and help you pass the time in your car.

Make Phone Calls to Get Stuff Done: It’s great to catch up with friends on your ride sometimes, but other times you can put the phone time to good use and get things done. When it is crunch time at work, schedule a morning commute call with co-workers so you can get your thoughts together and have a game plan when you hit the office. Or call doctors offices, businesses or other establishments to check things off your to-do list. If they aren’t open yet, leave a message so at least you’ve started the process.

Listen to a Podcast or Other Thought-Provoking Media: Stimulate your brain with thoughtful opinions. You can learn something new, get new perspective or become more aware of other viewpoints. Anything to keep your mind sharp is a worthwhile activity, especially while you are a captive audience in your car.

Drink Water: Staying hydrated is essential to helping your body operate at its full potential. Drinking water while driving is an approved beverage that’s great for your entire body. Be sure to have a cup of water available whenever you’re driving and take sips throughout your ride.

We hope you make the most out of time spent in your car with these tips to help you enjoy the ride!

Five Fall Fitness Ideas

Fall is a terrific time to switch up your fitness routine. The cooler weather and beautiful foliage makes outdoor exercise ideal in fall.  Take advantage of the season by switching up your workouts with these five fall fitness ideas:

Walk/Jog/Run

Five Fall Fitness IdeasGet your legs in gear with a walking, jogging and running routine. If you’re a beginner, start with walking and slowly incorporate intervals of jogging. As you progress, your workouts can consist of mostly jogging and some running sprints to boost your heart rate for maximum metabolic benefits. Many races ranging from charitable 5Ks to marathons resume in the spring. Select a race to be your goal and start training now. In six months time you’ll be ready to show off your hard work on race day.

Cycling

Cycling is a great way to take in the sights, scents and sounds of fall. If you don’t have a bike of your own, borrow one from a friend or rent one until you’re ready to buy. Take your bike to a lush area to enjoy the scenery or drive to the mountains for a more strenuous cycling experience.

Play

Chances are your kids are enjoying the cooler weather now too so spend some family time playing for exercise. Ideas include a neighborhood game of soccer, rollerblading, raking leaves and jumping into the piles, setting up an obstacle course in your yard or simply playing chase or tag. When you hit park playgrounds this fall, use the equipment to do calisthenics, strength-building with your own body weight and stretching. Standing pushups, stair squats and lunges, planks, and crossing the monkey bars are all great ways to get in a quick workout while hanging around with the kiddos on the playground.

Boot Camp

Now that the kids are back in school, you can get back to your morning boot camp. This type of hard core workout is fantastic just before the holiday season to get your metabolism revved and keep your stress level in check. Boot camps are great because the social aspect and group trainer will keep you motivated to work hard. Plus you’ll be changing activities frequently so you won’t get bored with your workout.

Hiking

Fall hiking is a great seasonal fitness choice. Spend time marking hiking areas on a map and make a goal to visit each of them at least once this season. Different hiking spots offer unique benefits because some will be hillier, some more colorful and some will have added features like waterfalls. Bring along friends and pack a picnic lunch to make your hiking experience a fun-filled day trip.

Enjoy the season and get in shape with our fall fitness ideas!

Diabetes Awareness Month – What You Should Know Part 2

We’re continuing our blog post on what you should know about diabetes as we support Diabetes Awareness Month. Diabetes is rapidly becoming a crisis in the U.S. as it is estimated that one and three people will have type 2 diabetes in their lifetime. While there are no known methods of preventing type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes is highly preventable. Today we’re looking at the risk factors associated with diabetes and lifestyle habits that can help prevent or manage diabetes symptoms.

Risk Factors for Diabetes

There is currently no known way to prevent type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes. Usually it begins in childhood, although it can present at any point in life, even in adults. Genetics, previous illness, environmental factors and diet may contribute to type 1 diabetes.

On the other hand, there are clearly pinpointed risk factors of type 2 diabetes. Knowing risk factors can help inform your health decisions and set a course of action to reduce your risk, detect the disease early and manage symptoms carefully.

  • Weight: The leading risk factor of diabetes is being overweight or obese. Fat cells are more likely to become insulin resistant. The more fat cells you have, the more at risk you are.
  • Genetics: Those with parents or siblings with diabetes are more likely to have it.
  • Physical Activity: Not only does this play into managing weight, but being active also helps cells use sugar for energy and maintain balance between blood glucose levels and insulin production.
  • Gestation: Many moms don’t know this but if you had gestational diabetes during pregnancy or gave birth to babies 9 lbs. or larger, you are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes in your lifetime.
  • Age: Risk of diabetes increases with age.
  • Race/Ethnicity: Some races and ethnic groups are predisposed to diabetes including African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans.
  • Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels: When your blood pressure and cholesterol are consistently and chronically high, you have a greater chance of becoming diabetic.

Lifestyle Habits to Prevent and Help Manage Diabetes

Diabetes Awareness MonthBecause weight and inactivity are the leading risk factors of type 2 diabetes, they are also the areas to focus on to prevent diabetes or help manage symptoms. These tips apply to everyone, but are especially crucial for prediabetics or those who suffer from diabetes and are working hard to manage symptoms.

Weight loss is extremely helpful because fat cells are more likely to become insulin resistant. With less fatty tissue, your risk is reduced. Steady weight loss and then weight maintenance is the best way to go. Losing weight quickly and gaining it back will not help reduce your risk of diabetes so be smart about how you approach weight loss to ensure it is sustainable.

Exercise is essential to healthy bodies. At least 30 minutes of exercise daily is recommended. As you know, working out can range from structured classes, workout DVDs, and utilizing cardio and strength-building gym equipment, to walking or jogging, playing sports or partaking in a physically active hobby like biking or skiing. Exercise only works if it works for you. Select an activity that you enjoy and switch it up if you start getting bored. Also, incorporate more activity in your day including standing periodically, stretching and walking more. Being active helps your body use sugar for energy and keeps cells more sensitive to insulin needs.

Your diet, of course, is the second important piece. As with any healthy diet, you should limit fats (such as too much fatty meat and fried foods) and excessive simple carbohydrates; however most people are mistaken that they should go on a low carb diet to prevent diabetes. This type of fad diet is probably not sustainable and the right carbohydrates can actually help prevent diabetes. Choose whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables that are full of fiber. These help improve blood sugar levels and will keep you satiated for longer, which can assist in weight loss. Also, limit alcohol and quit smoking to maintain a healthier, disease-free body.

Diabetes Awareness Month helps us examine our personal health picture and is a reminder to encourage loved ones to do the same. Reducing risk, early detection and managing symptoms of diabetes can save lives. That’s why we’re bringing awareness to this serious cause and we hope you will too.
