3 Natural Remedies for a Beautiful All-Natural Look

Every woman wants to look her best, at all times. For this reason, they go under detailed pampering which helps them keep enviable looks. They take care of their skin, hair, teeth, and every other part of their body. It might be time consuming, but the results end up being flawless. Ultimately, it all pays off.

However, what some women do not realize is that their lifestyle affects their looks in a big way. So, no matter how many creams you use, or how much water you drink, if you tend to drink alcohol, smoke, have irregular sleeping schedule, you will just go backwards. Therefore, think about changing this and improving your natural look.

Also, if you do not like spending a lot of money on products, but prefer something more natural and that could be incorporated in your every day life, consider using natural remedies. These could include various foods, herbs, and even exercise. With that in mind, here are a few suggestions you could try out.

Superfoods

Superfoods are a big bunch of vegetables and fruits, rich in vitamins, proteins and many other components. They are good for your body and mind, in and out. You cannot make a mistake with them. And luckily for you, if you are a picky eater, you can choose form a vast variety. For instance, salmon is a great choice for a glowing, soft skin. You can eat it in salad, fry or cook it. It is light food that tastes delicious. Also, it protects you from the damage of sun rays. Another reason why salmon is good for you, is its effect on teeth and gums. It makes them stronger and healthier.

Almonds, another superfood, could be used for treating your skin and hair, too. Not only are they nutritious, but they could help your body against inflammations. Also, if you consume them regularly, in moderation, almonds could help your hair grow and shine. You could consume them raw, which is the best choice, or put them in meals and salads. They add an amazing flavor to them.

Other superfoods you could try: seeds, berries, grapes, tomatoes, Greek yogurt, etc.

Herbs

So herbs are not strictly used for eating or making tea. You could use them with the intention of making yourself look naturally stunning. Without the use of any chemicals, you could make face and body feel amazing, and glow with beauty. For example, take ginseng. This special herb is very valuable and has great benefits for your health, like lowering blood pressure, boosting your memory or anti-inflammatory properties. However, it is also good for anti-aging, as it is rich in antioxidants. You would have less wrinkles and smoother skin, if you have ginseng tea on a regular basis, making it perfect for showcasing a natural look.

Another well known herb, that is of great help when it comes to beauty, is green tea. This miracle herb is amazing for so many reasons such as weight loss and sun protection. Additionally, it is great for the state of your teeth as the catechins found in green tea help fight mouth infections, which reduces bad breath, and it overall keeps your teeth strong.

Some other suggestions, when it comes to herbs, include chamomile, which has soothing effects and is good for fighting stress, too. Then, you could try witch hazel which could be used for healing wounds, sunburns and cleaning pores, among other uses.

Exercise

Lastly, though it might seem odd, but exercise truly is a natural remedy. You do not use any chemicals to aid you with exercises, therefore, it is fully organic. No matter where you are, or how tired or how crammed your schedule is, you could always find time for working out. If you are on a lunch break, you could do it. Maybe even while working in the office, you could do squats, abs exercise, even run on a treadmill desk – if you are feeling a little adventurous.

Whatever your choice of workout, bare in mind that it doesn’t have to last for a long period of time. For instance, you could do a 5-minute ab workout, which can easily be done before going to work. Or you could opt for a daily 30-minute session, and on weekends you could go wild and exercise for how long you can. The point is, there should be no excuse for you not to do it.

Being physically active is good for you, for so many reasons. First of all, it is a great weapon against stress. Then, it could shape your body into a form that everyone would want to have. And lastly, by being active you are keeping your whole body healthy. Both your body and mind would get an upgrade. Your memory would be boosted, your skin would look spotless, and you will be able to rock a natural look with very little makeup.

When it comes to choosing the right exercise for you, think about what best suits you. For example, you could go running. Just put on a comfortable running shoes and the road is yours. If that is not your preference, you could sign up for a gym membership. There you would have all kinds of machines, maybe a personal trainer to help you out, or even work out buddies. Finally, you could go for something more relaxing like yoga.

Obviously, there are numerous options offered to you, when it comes to picking a natural remedy. Whatever your choice, all that matters is the natural aspect of it, and the effect it would have on your looks. Your body and mind would be forever thankful for going down this path.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
