Have you considered the laughter and its benefits?
It has been said laughter is the best medicine. As years pass by the human being laughs less often. Research shows that kids laugh up to 500 times a day while an adult laughs 12-15 times a day. This is a wide margin, don’t you think?

Your Healthy Hair in the Kitchen

Once in a while, we encounter hair loss which can be frustrating. Hair loss can be attributed to the lack of vitamins or physical stress on the hair. It may also result from damage that can be caused by heat, sun, cold or overload of chemicals.

You love avocado on your spreads, salads and generally food. This fruit is high in vitamins B and E. These vitamins are good for your hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth because it stimulates the hair follicles; while Vitamin E is essential for scalp repair and rejuvenation.  The fruit also has a natural oil that will ensure that your hair is less dry.

Eating Clean Experience

Featured Image 1

Eating clean has been very common especially in the health and fitness world.

I have been eating healthy for a better part of my life thanks to my mum. I later on released the great gift that my mum gave me. However, in college, I did not have my mum force or lure me to eat some foods. I decided what I would.  These decisions were coupled with weird cravings.

In college, having French fries, masala fries, cheese cake, pizza and carbonated drinks made me happy and felt at home. These foods were easy to get, I call it ‘take & go’.  They were always read, did not take too long to prepare event at home.  Comfortable foods.

Now I know better. I carefully choose to what to eat and what portions to eat. When I eat healthy, I feel better about myself, since I eat what my body requires. Eating healthy does not imply that I eat green and eat little to look skinny; I am talking about eating balanced diets.

Namaste,

Carole.
