Reflection Is A Vital Part Of Our Life #AMCoffee

Reflecting & Reminding Are Vital

Reminders that Make a Difference

The week is over. The time has come – one more time – to give yourself more in a sense of reflection of the past few days, events, people, food, choices we have made in the course of one week.

When we do this type of reflecting, we give ourselves a path for discovery and opening our minds to new solutions.

The opposite is true as well. When we deprive ourselves of time spent relaxing and reflecting upon our life’s events and thoughts, we close our mind and subconscious mind to discover what is the best for us.

I would like to encourage you to make time for yourself regularly. When you “schedule” such moments, they become eventually a habit you would not live without!

Wishing you a happy Reflection Upon Your Life in the past week or more in this coming weekend.

    1. Do you do self-reflection?

    2. What would it be you’d like to think over and reflect?
    You do not need to answer it here, though. Seeing the Question would prompt your subconscious to initiate your thinking process. And when you are alone and ready to give in to the process – you will know it.

    So happy to see you today here! Come over when you can. AM Coffee is for early birds and not-so, too! It is open all-day-long, as we do have different schedules we live with.

    Stay with us every morning, win prizes, but mostly, make awesome friends!

    Beauty Tips That Work!

    Check More of these Beauty Tips here if you missed them during the past week!

    Here are few to start you with!

    HAIR
    Always wash your face and body AFTER you shampoo and condition your hair b/c when it runs down your face/body it could break you out.

    Instead of towel drying your hair, use an old t-shirt. Towels can make your hair frizzy and prone to breakage.

    Use any hair oil like olive oil or coconut oil on damp hair. Applying oil or product on damp hair absorbs better.

    FOOD/NUTRITION
    Have acne? Drinking a glass of lemon water each day helps to reduce blemishes!

    Avoid salty foods. They can cause fluid retention and eye puffiness.

    Vitamin C helps transform a dull complexion to a skin that’s radiantly glowing.

    FASHION TIPS
    If you have sensitive acne-prone skin, stay away from rich spicy foods, which only irritate and inflame your system.

    Dry hair? Avocado and honey is a great mix for a deep conditioning hair treatment.

    COSMETICS
    To perk up tired eyes, rub Aloe Vera gel to your lids and around the sides for a temporary firm look.

    Apply pressed powder on and around your lips if your lipstick has a tendency to “bleed.”

    Test new lipsticks on your fingertips because fingertips and lips have similar blood vessel concentration so they are closer in color.

    Dab acne with nasal spray and Visine eye drops. They both will shrink blood vessels, thereby taking away the redness.

    Unless your teeth are sparkling white, avoid coral and orange lipsticks. Instead, try red, pink or plum.

    Never apply makeup before blow-drying your hair. The heat from the dryer can make you sweat and cause your makeup to smudge.

    The color of powder eyeshadow can be made to look more intense by dipping your eyeshadow brush in water first.

    Add rose water and coconut oil to a warm bath. Soak for 20 minutes, then rinse. Beautifies and softens your skin.

    Apply ice to acne to reduce redness.

    Shea butter softens skin, reduces inflammation and improves the appearance of scars and other discolorations.

    Hands age fast! Use a slice of lemon and rub it on the back of your hands. This will lighten any age spots and prevent future ones!

    Wear flesh-colored underwear under white clothes or any outfit that is vaguely see-through.

    The more of your neck that shows, the slimmer you will look.

    Not sure which color polish to choose? Go for a milky pink color it’s a classic and goes with every outfit.

    hair smooth in minutes

      I wash my hair once every 5 days, I don’t wear a lot of make up , just some foundation and mascara. Lemon water does help with your skin, and it helps you lose weight. I drink a lot in the summer

    Foods Rich in CALCIUM.

    Click on link above to see All of the discussion points. Here are some highlights.

    Some people cannot eat or like dairy products. We have plenty of whole foods in the PLANT Family to take care of Calcium needs!

    Broccoli rabe

    Calcium content: 100 milligrams in one 2/3-cup serving

    Plus: Broccoli rabe (pronounced “rob”) is the slightly more bitter cousin to broccoli. It provides more than half your daily value of immune-boosting vitamin C and about 3 grams of belly-filling protein. It’s also a great source of vitamin A.

    Kale

    Calcium content: 101 milligrams in 1 cup raw, chopped

    Plus: This superfood has it all: it racks up just 30 calories per serving, provides a day’s worth of vitamin C, and twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, not to mention that 101 milligrams of calcium per serving. It also provides a hefty dose of vitamin K, a nutrient that helps your blood clot. Without it, you wouldn’t stop bleeding when you cut or bruise yourself.

    Edamame

    Calcium content: 98 milligrams in 1 cup cooked

    Plus: Edamame has been eaten in China and Japan for thousands of years, and it’s no wonder: it’s a nutritional powerhouse. Edamame—which are immature soybeans in the pod—is among the few non-animal foods that is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. You also get 8 grams of fiber per serving.
    White Beans

    Calcium content: 63 milligrams in 1/2 cup cooked

    Plus: These meaty little guys are rich in fiber, protein, and iron, and they’re also one of the best nutritional sources of potassium. Additionally, they contain resistant starch, a healthy carb that boost metabolism.

    Bok Choy

    Calcium content: 74 milligrams per 1 cup shredded

    Plus: A cup of bok choy—also known as Chinese cabbage—sets you back just 9 calories. It’s also a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. Bok choy cooks fast, making it perfect for stir-fries, and is available year-round.

    Figs

    Calcium content: 121 milligrams per 1/2 cup dried

    Plus: Bite into a dried fig, and you’ll think you’re indulging in a super-sweet and sticky dessert, when in fact you’re chowing down on a fiber- and potassium-packed fruit. Figs also supply you with magnesium, a nutrient the body uses in more than 300 biomechanical reactions, such as maintaining muscle function, keeping your heart rhythm steady, and strengthening your bones.

    Oranges

    Calcium content: 74 milligrams in one large orange and 27 milligrams in a cup of orange juice

    Plus: You know oranges for their immune-boosting vitamin C content, but they’re also low in calories and brimming with antioxidants.

    This day was all about giving you a lot of Examples to enrich your daily diet with more foods that have Vitamins from A to Zinc!
    Click on link above to see all discussion points! Miss them Not!

    Here are some teasers for you and a good reminder, so that your subconscious mind knows what to look at when making choices!

    Vitamin B12

    Why you need it: Vitamin B12 is vital for healthy nervous-system function and for the formation of DNA and red blood cells. It helps guard against anemia, a blood condition that causes fatigue and weakness.

    Where to get it: Animal products are your best bet for B12. Cooked clams have the highest concentration of any food, with 84 micrograms (mcg)—a whopping 1,402% of your DV—in just 3 ounces. (One milligram equals 1,000 micrograms.) Vitamin B12 also occurs naturally in beef liver, trout, salmon, and tuna, and is added to many breakfast cereals.

    Folate

    Why you need it: For pregnant women, folate—a type of B vitamin—can help prevent birth defects. For everyone else, it helps new tissues and proteins form.

    Where to get it: Folate is found in a wide variety of foods, including dark leafy green vegetables, fruit, nuts, and dairy products. Beef liver has the highest concentration, but if liver’s not to your taste, spinach also has plenty: 131 mcg per half cup (boiled), or 33% of your DV. Folic acid, a man-made form of folate, is also added to many breads, cereals, and grains.

    Niacin

    Why you need it: Niacin, like its fellow B vitamins, is important for converting food into energy. It also helps the digestive system, skin, and nerves to function properly.

    Where to get it: Dried yeast is a top source of niacin, but for something more appetizing, try peanuts or peanut butter; one cup of raw peanuts contains 17.6 mg, more than 100% of your DV. Beef and chicken liver are particularly niacin-rich, as well.

    pine nuts

      I take a vitamin B12 to help with energy and feeling tired. I do try to eat good but at times I find myself just munching

    Life is lived long is a great thing.
    Life is lived Healthily is even better of all.
    Life lived Long and Healthily – WooHoo for this Combo!

    On this day, we’ve discussed some things that play a vital role in contributing to longevity and healthy living.
    Please click link above to see it all!

    Here are some points we made:

    All but the last bite

    Leave a little on your plate after every meal if you want to live to 100, suggests author Dan Buettner, who studies so-called Blue Zones: areas around the world where people tend to live longer and healthier. In Japanese culture, he says, people stop eating when they feel only 80% full—a practice that has helped the country earn a top spot on the world’s-oldest-people list.

    Two meals a day

    Walter Breuning of Great Falls, Montana was the world’s oldest man when he died in 2011 at age 114. He attributed his longevity to eating only two meals a day, reported the Daily Mail, because “that’s all you need.”

    “I think you should push back from the table when you’re still hungry,” Breuning told USA Today in 2009. Breuning said he ate a big breakfast and lunch every day, skipped supper, drank lots of water, and ate plenty of fruit.

    … or even less

    Some people are willing to go even farther on their quest for eternal youth: Studies have shown that animals live longer if they eat only every other day, and a few diet programs have embraced this idea.

    These types of diets are likely very difficult to follow, however, and not safe for people with any chronic health conditions.) Research from Washington University has also found that people who restrict their calorie intake have lower core temperatures—an indication that their bodies can operate as efficiently as possible.

      I love blueberries and try to eat them often, I also try to eat tuna, since I don’t eat a lot of fish. And I eat chocolate every day , dark chocolate, there always has to be a bag of chocolate chips in the fridge 🙂

    Indulgencies that Could Be Lived Without

    Some of them are:

    Reach out

    Research shows that you’re at greater risk of heart disease without a strong network of friends and family. Loneliness can cause inflammation, and in otherwise healthy people it can be just as dangerous as having high cholesterol or even smoking.

    Focus on fitness

    Daily exercise may be the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth. A 2008 study found that regular high-intensity exercise (such as running) can add up to four years to your life, which isn’t surprising given the positive effects working out has on your heart, mind, and metabolism.

    Even moderate exercise—a quick, 30-minute walk each day, for example—can lower your risk of heart problems.

    Get busy

    Having satisfying sex two to three times per week can add as many as three years to your life. Getting busy can burn an impressive amount of calories—sometimes as much as running for 30 minutes. (Which would you rather do?)

    Regular sex may also lower your blood pressure, improve your sleep, boost your immunity, and protect your heart.
