Remember how I was talking about how important sleep is?

Simages

Well, I just woke up- about 30 minutes ago, and even though I did not sleep 7-8 hours, I woke up without an alarm clock, feeling refreshed as if I had slept 10 full hours and had been thorough 6-7 full sleep cycles….(more on that later).

It amazes me – how I can sleep, sometimes even 4 ½ hours and feel like I have slept 10. I can function fine- do not have “foggy” moments, and don’t need 3 cups of coffee to wake up…hummmmm.
Maybe it IS that sleep system I’m sleeping on???!!!

What really gets me is that now there is research that sleep DOES affect your memory, and even though this was done on “seniors”, which I still refuse to feel like I’m rapidly becoming one, I think it affects us all!
Talk about stress! LOL

So it is not a secret, the truth is out:
Check out this article from Time

Finding the Link Between Sleep and Senior Moments.
It’s no secret that our ability to remember things dulls as we get older. Now researchers have some clues about why that happens.

So like I said, I happen to think that it not only affects “Seniors”.
I mean, how many times have you not slept well and couldn’t concentrate at work. As for me, when I’m not doing my “own thing” I work as a dental assistant- and Heaven help me if I screw up- I could seriously cause damage to someone’s mouth and get fired to boot! (Not that I mind that, I’m actually dying to fire my boss! LOL Soon Soon ! winkChub)

So sleeping well can actually be an anti-aging thing too…very cool. Maybe I can sleep my way back to my youth. yes_text1137

Anyway, I’ll post more on the stages of sleep and how they affect us-Feel free to ask questions.

Have an awesome day and remember…hug someone and make them feel good!

Hugs to all!

Remember I talked about water? Well here is more proof that we should not drink tap water. My choice..Nikken’s Water filtration system…the new “Waterfall”

Is our drinking water making us sick?

Over the past 20 years, the number of people allergic to milk, eggs, wheat nuts and shellfish has soared, jumping by 18% between 1997 and 2007, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But why?

A team of researchers reporting in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the journal of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), decided to look at whether that rise in food sensitivities could be related to another growing trend during that time period — the use of environmental pesticides and purifying chemicals.

(MORE:Why Kids with Known Food Allergies Are Still at Risk)

Specifically, the scientists focused on a group of pesticides called dichlorophenols that is also used to purify water. They began with 10,348 participants from the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2005-2006, 2,548 of…

What I live for !

It is for moments like these that I live for – and do this incredible business.

It is the BEST de-stressor that exists- and the most rewarding of feelings.

Last Wednesday night a lovely lady and her boyfriend came to our house for a “getting to know you” chat and a “Wellness Home Tour”.

I showed them our Wellness Home- and how we have integrated the Nikken technologies into our lives- and told them how our lives have changed as a result.

When we sat down afterwards, I asked the boyfriend how his sleep is….his immediate reaction was “I sleep like a baby” (never mind that a baby gets up every 2 hours!!! LOL).

I said “great”- and then I asked him if he snored.  He pointed to my friend and said- “She says I do”. After being told that he also waked up with a stiff back I suggested that he borrow a Sleep System (mattress, Far-Infrared blanket and pillow) to try for a few nights, just see how he feels in the morning-

Well, this morning I got a text message of “WOW!!!!!”

I spoke to my girlfriend- and this guy who said that he “sleeps great”, woke up like he has never woken up before- no back discomfort, only got up once instead of 2-3 time to go to the bathroom, and he himself says that he has had the best night’s sleep ever and woke up like a panther!

So after wiping my tears of joy, because I was able to help someone sleep better and have less back discomfort-
I blessed, my brother-in-law for introducing us to this outstanding business- and opportunity to help impact people’s lives…

This is the Joy and Satisfaction that I live for!

What do YOU live for?

Regards to all,

Well, some of you may think that I’m a few months too early, but actually the Jewish New Year is only a week away- and with it comes all kinds of stress!

Yeah, like having to sit down for the customary meals with your family (the holiday lasts for 2 days!) – some of whom you really like- and some of whom you would rather NOT have to deal with, unless you are fortunate enough to have a wonderful loving and supportive family- who is not critical of the fact that you are…

Not married yet
Haven’t finished school
Don’t have a high paying job
Not on the diet you planned on
Haven’t finished the courses you wanted to take, the projects you were working on

And, well, you get the idea- I can go on, and on, and on and on….

It is also a time when we have to come to terms with the fact that many of us are living according to the expectations of others, instead of living our lives for ourselves. Sound familiar?

So, in keeping with the spirit of the New Year, and the self-reckoning that is the true essence of the holiday, many people go to the Synagogue/Temple and ask G-d for an improvement in their lives for the coming year.

What most people do is that they just throw out the request to the Heavens:
“I want a better year, better health, more money, a better job, to meet the love of my life”!
But what they fail to do is be SPECIFIC.

What do we WANT out of life, is my question for you today is…

What do YOU really want out of life?
What do YOU want to do?
Are YOU HAPPY with the way things are, or do you want something more???!!
Are you happy with your health?
Where you live?
Your relationships?
Your job?
Your salary?

Your FUTURE depends on it!

YOU MUST VISUALIZE what it is that you want- in DETAIL!

Not just a new car, what make, model, color, upholstery…every last detail that you want in your new car.

Make believe that you are a kid again and draw out what you want- Create a “Vision Board” and not only DREAM it- but BELIEVE that you can have whatever you want- and then you will ACHIEVE  it!!!!

When we pray, it must be with feeling and emotion…and with the belief that everything is possible!

G-d, the Universe, or whatever it is that you believe in, does not want us to be sad .
Just the way a tree doesn’t decide one day that it will not grow- neither should we…why would we???!!!

So start visualizing and believing- then you will be led to take the actions to achieve what it is that you really want out of life! We MUST keep on growing!

Remember the book that I mentioned before? Go back and look at my last post:  http://wp.me/p2lLsw-2U
Read the book again…

I look forward to your comments and if you need any help with this- don’t be shy…ask!  🙂

Hugs to all,

Robin

So I’m supposed to be writing about how to live free of stress…right?

Well, guess what?  I have been going absolutely stark raving mad these past few weeks- and had a stress level of -1001!!!!

Why?

Well, as much as I believe in the law of attraction- I’m still trying to figure out why or how I attracted out home “server computer” to crash!

Did I want/need a break from the computer?

Did I need hundreds of e-mails coming into my smart-phone and then having to answer them on the phone?

I’m still old-fashioned that way, and prefer to answer mail on the computer- and not on the phone.:-)

Maybe I just needed to go outside and talk to people face to face…

I really don’t know.

The worst part is that it was right before a huge technology launch of a very innovative product- a KenkoLight that gives you all of the advantages of the sun- without the harmful effects of the UV.

Here is the link to the brochure.

http://library.nikken.com/?n=kenkolight-brochure-us

When I had to reach dozens of guests that I had invited and and, and, and,,,,,, didn’t have a computer…well, you get the picture, right?

Well, the pooch above was about the way I felt, and then…it dawned on me…

What in the world did we do before the high speed technology of the internet and smart phones?

How often do we really understand why-(never mind the how) things happen to us?
I’m a big fan on “The Secret” and how our minds work- the subconscious mind is truly a thing of wonder…

Have you ever thought of how things happen “by accident”?
Like thinking of someone and a few minuets later they call?!

Well, I have news for you- it did not happen “by accident

LOL…you MADE it happen by your thoughts!

Here is the name of a book that changed my life- It’s called “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

“Thoughts are things!” to quote Mike Dooley from the Secret, which is based on this book, and he is incredibly right! Whether it be Riches in Money- or Happiness or Health, or even Inner Peace

I laughed at it when I first saw the title- like “yeah right”…but ya know what ? If you read it about 3-4 times and let it all sink in…and PUT IT TO USE you can create your own reality.

I’ll be happy to help you create YOUR reality too! Leave me a message below 😉

I have created sooooo much with it, it’s scary..and a lot of fun- just be careful what you wish for! 🙂

Nothing happens “by accident”.  Whether we understand it or not is another matter. Yes- even the bad things that we cannot rationalize.

I love this subject and hope to talk about it in the future- but for now- I have to get loads of programs to work again…

Getting them working will definitely lower my stress level 🙂

I think both hubby and I need a vacation-

Be back soon with more info and discussions!

Hugs to all!

 Oy! this is with my OLD glasses- and a double chin!

Remember when….Or,
Why Should I Be Stressed About My Fruits and Veggies?

For those of us who are over 40 (hummm…LOL), not so long ago, relatively, a tomato tasted like a tomato- a cucumber like a cucumber- and a lot of other fruits and vegetables had the taste of real food- and not just a bland taste that a lot of veggies have today- but when you bit into an apple it tasted really good- (even Delicious! 😉  )

Ever wonder why?

There are a lot of different theories out there;
Pesticides, hormones, storage conditions, just to name a few.

My real question is, do these things affect just the taste?
Do they also affect the quality of the vitamin content? – and
What exactly do these pesticides have to do with MY health?

Well here is a great website- just for a short explanation:

http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/effects-of-pesticides/effects-of-pesticides
And here is one that will really scare your pants off;
http://www.holistichelp.net/pesticides.html

See a list of no less than 40 medical conditions that our farmers can pass on to us because they want their produce to look prettier, and have a longer self life!

BTW, I wonder why HE is wearing a protective suite!

Here are just a few!

  • breathing difficulties
  •  muscle weakness and pain and loss of muscle control
  •  impaired mobility
  •  uncontrollable shaking and trembling
  •  hypothyroidism
  •  heart palpitations
  •  Parkinson’s
  •  Alzheimer’s
  •  autism
  •  cancer
  •  insomnia or difficulties with sleep

 So much has been written and there are so many website are out there telling us of the horrible side effects of pesticides on our bodies, that we turn green and get sick just from the thought that we are putting all of that horrible stuff into our systems. At least I do!

So what is a person to do?
How do we get the nutrients that we should be getting from our food?

Well, there are a few answers in my opinion;
1) Buy Organic veggies and pray that they really are “Organic”!
2) Follow this site’s list of “Clean”er fruits and vegetables
The Clean 15′ 2012 Shopper’s Guide To Pesticides
 and see what the Environmental Working Group EWG calls the “Dirty Dozen”

3) Grow your own…gulp

And 4)

This fourth suggestion comes from personal experience….
I know darn well that I cannot always rely on my source of wholesome and totally organic fruits and vegetables – but I also know that I need my daily vitamins and minerals…

So I decided to check out the Kenzen (it’s a Japanese word meaning wholesome) and Kasai (in Europe) line of whole foods by Nikken.

In other words- not just the vitamin C from the orange- but the WHOLE orange!

I personally am in love with the Jade GreenZymes, green barley grass, and the Lactoferrin Gold + their Multivitamins and Minerals. They also have Bio-Directed Whole Food products.
Ask me about them.

You can check out the whole line at: http://www.nikken.com/product/technology/index.cfm#kenzen

For once when I had routine blood tests done for the sake of checking up on myself- all of my values were right where they should be, and improved in so many ways, and that is aside from the fact that I’m full of energy, and those of you who know me can attest to it! LOL

I now have the confidence that I’m supplying my body with the proper nutrients in order for it to function efficiently and without poisoning my system in the process!

So think about that video I posted from Healthy World Healthy Child- think also about what you are feeding your family! Check out the blog called How to Safeguard our Future

Feel free to ask questions- that’s what I’m here for! J

Have a Healthy Stress Free day!

Hugs!

Robin
