Give Yourself a Break!

Category: Well, Let_s Talk!
Posted: 2007-10-22 01:32

Our lives are so very full. We constantly juggle personal activities responsibilities with family activities and responsibilities, then add work activities and responsibilities.The family activities and responsibilities, for each additional child, compound the balancing act.

It makes your head spin! I am excited you are enjoying OutsideIN life. Just remember to give yourself a break! We all "guilt" ourselves in the blame-game of life with false truths.

Are you asking yourself "What on earth is she getting at???!???"

I am currently travelling and did not bring any Ghassoul to wash my hair with. So, I have contended myself to use my old shampoo, and be good with it.

In a nutshell, there are many ways, most of them simple, to have a better quality of life from the OutsideIN. I delight in researching the information for you and hope you can include a lot of it in your own life experience.

Please, do not get hung-up when things don't fall into place as you had anticipated. No worries, imagine how you see yourself getting the results you want - regardless of what business you are running.

Re-focus on what is important to you and make your choices accordingly.

When life tosses you lemons, don't gripe... make lemonade!

So, apply the changes you learn about when you can. If you are on a diet and really want a bite of chocolate, it is easier to just be grateful for the piece of dark melty piece in your mouth than suffer from the anger and frustration of self- denial. If you are going to enjoy life then pop that little temptation into your mouth, forgive yourself, harbour no grudges against yourself or others, and ENJOY it!

Likewise for your choices of body care products!

Fomentations for Healing

Category: Therapeutic Solutions
Posted: 2007-10-17 21:04

I've discovered yet another way to bring health and healing to our bodies from the OutsideIn!

Fomentations are either infusions or decoctions (depending upon which part of the plant is being used) in which a cloth is soaked into (to absorb liquid) and then applied to the ailing body part. A fomentationís uses are varied and will provide relief from congestion, will stimulate circulation, and help to heal and soothe irritated tissues.

Typically, bitter herbs are used and steeped in water or apple cider vinegar; adding cayenne powder to the mixture will encourage more circulation and warmth to the area.

How to prepare a Fomentation:

1. Steep the selected herbs in liquid (1 part herb to 3 parts liquid) until the tea is quite strong. Strain the tea.

2. Submerse a thick cloth into the hot tea (cotton, wool, linen, towel, gauze or even a diaper, being imaginative, will work).

3. Wring the cloth out (just enough to keep the liquid from running off the body) and test the heat before placing on the body. The cloth should be as hot as possible, without causing blistering.

4. Once placed on the body, keep the fomentation moist and warm by covering. Towels or saran wrap work fine.

5. When the cloth has cooled, remove from the body, soak it again and reapply.

Rules of thumb: Wet enough that no liquid runs off the body, large enough that the cloth covers the entire affected area, keep damp and warm and change periodically.

I will be adding additional selections to be used as Formentations. Check back!
