I mentioned in a past post summer is here! Most of us want to spend more time outdoors enjoying a little summer fun! I know I do! One thing I have used for years to help keep from getting bit by mosquitos and other bugs is peppermint essential oil. I put a drop on each wrist. This seems to do the trick. Bugs hate peppermint oil!
One other thing, I have also used this oil to help keep away bugs naturally in my home. I put a few drops of the peppermint oil in a spay bottle with a little water (shake bottle well) and spray where I see ants etc. are coming inside. (Do not spray oil on fabric)
I have another use for the peppermint oil. I put one drop behind each ear to help keep me a little cooler in the heat. Two uses here…helps keeps the bugs away and helps keep you cooler!
I have used the Young Living Peppermint oil exclusively. I love Young Living products and have used them for many years! I hope you will try the peppermint oil. It smells great and I think you will really like it!
I hope you have a great time in your outdoor activities whether you are camping or just going for walks!
You have probably heard the saying, when life gives you lemons make lemonade. I just try to think positive as much as I can to make life easier to accept the things that go not quite according to plan. I know of a great book that can help you think positive that I would like to share with you. The book is The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. An international bestseller with over five million copies in print, The Power of Positive Thinking has helped men and women around the world to achieve fulfillment in their lives through Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s powerful message of faith and inspiration.
Being a painter, there is one more thing I thought to do. When life gives you lemons….paint them!!

via Daily Prompt: Nervous
Hi everyone! Here on wordpress they have daily prompts. This is something the “WordPress People” would like for us to blog about. So….here goes!
Nervous…why are you nervous? Is it your health..finances..an important meeting you may be nervous about? There could be many things in this crazy world that could make a person nervous! Here is one thing that makes me nervous at times. Not having enough time to get everything done that I want to do! There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day for everything. As I said before, I am an artist. I sometimes have deadlines for commission work. I do a lot of oil portraits. I am especially busy around holiday times. Sooo….how do I handle my time space to get my work done you may ask? Well I try to stay on schedule. I repeat..TRY. Haha! Sometimes things just don’t work out the way I want it to when something unexpected comes up. That’s just life! Here are a few thing that help keep me balanced. Maybe these tips will help you also!
. Schedule – -Try to keep to a schedule as much as possible
.Eat right – Keep the caffeine to a low level if possible. (I love coffee!)
. Exercise – I can’t stress this enough! Exercise can really really help not
only with physical health, but as I said in my last blog it
really helps emotionally. Just a short walk out in the fresh
air helps tremendously!
. Sleep —– If possible, try to get 8 hours of sleep. I know..that is
sometimes hard to do. Eating right and exercise helps with
. Water —– It is very important to drink, hopefully 8 16 ounces of water
daily. It is important to keep hydrated!
. Write —– Write down your nervous thoughts. This can help relax you at
a least a little, and you just may see in writing your problem
is not that big of a deal in the scheme of things!
. Visualize – Visualize a happy place! Is it a beach..a walk in the woods? Go to your happy place!
These are just a few things to help keep stress levels a little lower.
I hope you follow at least some of this advice and I wish you good health and don’t stress the small stuff!!

Who am I? I am an artist that takes my health serious! If I am not healthy mentally and physically, I personally can not do the painting/art I love to do! One thing that helps me is to exercise, along with healthy eating. Yoga is a great way to keep me excited about creating and being able to do my work! I believe yoga is great for mental and physical relaxation. It can help provide the strength do be able to keep up with ordinary daily routines that can sometimes be hectic. I can tell a big difference if I slack off my healthy routine! I hope you will do your best to practice a healthy lifestyle! Try out this DVD and see if it doesn’t help you lead a healthier life!
I will be adding to this blog, tips on healthy eating in the future. I hope you will follow my blog to get healthy mind and body health tips often!

I don’t think I know anyone that hasn’t gone though at least some tough times. Sometimes it helps to read or hear about someone that keeps going through whatever life has handed them. I know reading or hearing from someone that has actually been through something worse than I have, but kept fighting to get through the bad times helps to give me strength. It makes me think, if they can get through what has faced them, I can face and get through what I’m going through!
I have picked out a few examples of books with encouraging examples that I hope will help you or someone you know, to help offer hope and encouragement. These books would make a great gift for someone you know that could use a little boost to help them get up, follow their dreams and go on fighting!
