The minute people hear the word “food,” panic often sets in. That’s because the word conjures up having to wash, prepare, cook and then plate it. With many people’s hectic schedules taking a toll, lunch and dinner often mean having a meal delivered or picking one up. That way, the only obligations involve unpacking and tossing the wrapping.

Busy schedules often top the list of excuses for not preparing and eating nutritious, health-supporting meals. Fortunately, many people take multi-vitamins to fill in gaps when it’s impossible to eat right. But did you know that, in addition to providing a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals, many multi-vitamin supplements contain “extras” that might be missing from your diet?
Being cooped up all winter is no fun. Now that spring is (finally!) here, why not take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside for some fresh air, sunshine and exercise? There are endless fun and creative ways to work out outdoors—most of which won’t cost you a thing. So slather on some sunscreen, fill up that water bottle and try these ideas to get moving outside the gym or home.
Are you a terrible sleeper? Do you stay up late working, or worse yet, worrying? Sleep is important. Now, don’t come back at me with any of that mess about how you’re fine on five hours or any other nonsense. Sleep is important to repair your cells, recharge your brain and rebuild your muscles. When you deprive yourself of the necessary hours, you are not putting your best self out there each day. So today, Bombshell, I’ve got four tips for getting a better night’s sleep.
After the cold of winter, sprigs of greenery holding the promise of colorful, cheerful flowers can’t come fast enough. But if your patience is wearing thin, there’s a way to tide you over while you wait for the seasons to fully change —add some “green” supplements to your regimen!
There’s nothing wrong with getting older, in fact, we should be celebrating every year more we get because some have not been so lucky. I have a dear friend who always says, “Don’t be sad about your birthday, it’s better than not having one.” She’s right. I want to age gracefully. I’m not saying I’m looking forward to watching the youth slide right off my face (because I know it will), but I’d rather my children learn from me that growing older means growing wiser, not uglier. Grace and beauty, for me, mean not rushing to the plastic surgeon for Botox and face lifts, but acknowledging my skin needs a little more help now than it did in my twenties.
Aging gracefully has become something to be proud of, thanks to celebrities such as Jane Fonda and Sophia Loren leading the way. Getting older means recognizing what’s important (friends, family, Fluffy and Fido) and appreciating the simple joys of life (a sunny day, a perfect rose, a sweet strawberry). There’s just one Catch-22 for many of us: Weight gain.
