Ultimate Hot Toddy For Colds Recipe

Description:
Say goodbye to that cold with this ultimate hot toddy for colds recipe. Flu season is here, for many of us, it is round about the time we all get the terrible flu. We have a solution for you that is far more healthy than cough syrup and tastes a million times better too. Firstly please don’t follow other recipes which say you should microwave your honey and whiskey together. This is just crazy as you ruin all the goodness in your honey, not to mention give yourself unneeded radiation. Although this might not completely kill your cold it will certainly make you feel a million times better.

QUESTION:
Do you have any suggestions for stress release?

ANSWER:
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.

Stretch Your Back is also good to do during the day. Begin on your hands and knees. Slide your hands and arms out in front of you so that your torso forms one long sloping line from your fingertips to your tailbone. Breathe smoothly; reach forward with your fingertips while you keep your hips in line with your knees. Hold for about 30 seconds. Relax and then repeat. If you have back problems, first consult the professional who treats you before performing this stretch.

Honouring our Ancestors by Monika Muranyi
In many places across the world, ancestor acknowledgment is an integral part of social and religious life. Nearly every indigenous culture honors their ancestors, and ancestral spirits are a part of everything that they do. They give great honor to their deceased forebears, the same as the grandmothers and grandfathers did before them. They understand that their ancestors have a vast wealth of wisdom and knowledge, available to us in the moment that we choose to ask.
How to Eat the Healthiest and Sustainable Fish by Lindsay Coulter
Studies show that salmon contain small protein molecules called "bioactive peptides" that may provide support for cartilage, insulin effectiveness, and control of inflammation in the digestive tract. They also provide one of the highest amounts of vitamin D—a nutrient not naturally abundant in a lot of whole foods, as well as selenium, a common deficiency in our corner of the world in part from soil depletion due to high rainfall....
Irish Guide to Passage Tombs and Brú na Bóinne by Maria O'Farrell Carr

Tip of the Week:

Mars at 29 Sagittarius at the time of the Pisces New Moon which officially occurs at 1:11 pm GMT represents a noteworthy theme. In mutual reception with Jupiter, there is an overall positive vibe woven into this moon-seed. However, planets at 29 degrees represent themes of overcoming. This can prove to be lifetime theme when indicated in your Birth Chart. Yet, Mars happens to be well-placed at this degree of Sagittarius, so the result may be one of progress rather than obsessive-compulsive tendencies, a common theme for the last degrees of the archer.




Spring Equinox is upon us and occurs on March 20 this year. This marks the Astrological New Year. 0 Aries is the sign that aligns with this annual ‘sign of the season’ when day and night are equal. There are also a series of other astrological events occurring over the coming week and these will all synchronize with very noticeable energetic shifts and outer events. Below is the list. ...
