Life tip #21: Eat mindfully

Happy Monday and week to all of you! Lately I’ve been thinking about eating mindfully on a daily basis, about midway through each meal. I first heard about mindful eating in an article on Care2 (I’m betting it was one of these great articles: How to Become an Intuitive Eater, Mindful Eating and Tuning Into […]






Life tip #20: Drink plenty of tea

Good Monday to all of you! A little while back I asked for you to share your life tips with me and the lovely Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary shared quite a few! One she suggested was “take time for tea” and, if you know me or have been around here on Four Leaf […]






Meditation: let it go…

It’s time for a bit of an update on how meditation is going! I’ve really been giving it a shot and thinking about it every day. I’ve gotten messages and tweets from others sharing what they’ve found and it seems as though I just so happen to be clicking on more meditation articles than usual […]






Meditation

Wow! Getting a full night’s rest makes a huge difference! Last night I was able to sleep in a different room from my usual. This room happens to have a door unlike the one where I’ve been sleeping and that door keeps little cats out. I love my kiddos more than anything, but they sure […]






I won a giveaway! Mail + books: what’s not to love?

Can you tell how happy I am to have won these books? Rachel of Eat and Write had a whole week of giveaways and offered not one, but two books (shown above), on one of her days. The two books are The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen and The Oxford Book of Health Foods: The […]






Do you wash your new clothes before wearing them?

I don’t want to gross you out, but I think you should know about this. Last year I came upon an article titled “Why You Should Wash New Clothes Before Wearing” by Social Vibe which shocked me and made me cringe. Whenever I bought new clothes, I couldn’t wait to put them on and would […]






Make the world a better place with Pure Citizen

I was pleasantly surprised to see so many votes for eco-finds/products in the poll. Well, have I got the site for you! Pure Citizen is full of eco-finds/products all wrapped up in a beautiful package. I found out about them from Vegansaurus and have been hooked since! I was so excited when Pure Citizen accepted […]






Life tip #15: Respect

Every time I write, see, think the word “respect”, I want to bust out in song (which, now that I’ve found the song to link here for this post, I’ll gladly listen to while writing this out). “R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Find out what it means to me!” Well, respect has a lot of meaning to me, and […]






Life tip #14: Exercise

Happy Monday everyone! This life tip is so important and yet so often overlooked by many. It’s hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong when it comes to what type and how much exercise per person because the information is so varied and vast. Having read so many different opinions, I’ve come to the conclusions […]






Adding in more healthy & raw foods

I’ve posted a couple somewhat healthy, but also quite sweet breakfasts such as pancakes and maple syrup oatmeal, but my breakfast usually consists of slices of bread with hummus and an assortment of fresh veggies like the photograph above. I used to hate the vegetables that top these slices not too long ago. Now I […]
