"Have you ever heard the saying, “Muscle weighs more than fat?” Perhaps at some point in your life you were working your butt off in the gym in an attempt to lose weight. During this time, you hopped onto the scale weekly, sometimes even daily. Some days were better than others. Sometimes the numbers on the scale decreased, but to your dismay, this wasn’t always the case. Some weigh-ins showed that the scale read higher than your starting weight. Other days the scale wouldn’t budge. This would depress and sadden you. To soothe your worries and soften the blow of the scale, perhaps a family member, friend, personal trainer, or doctor told you that you shouldn’t freak out because the scale is showing that there has been a gain in muscle and that “muscle weighs more than fat.” Maybe you relaxed after hearing this. Maybe you were skeptical of this comment."...
Many of you already know the benefits of drinking plenty of water to get glowing skin: water flushes the toxins out of your system and improves your skin. I know you may be thinking “Oh, it is such common knowledge these days so it is not really new information.” And you may already drink plenty of water everyday, but I would like to tell you the secret of drinking of hot water. Yes, hot water!!!
In this week’s video, I will show you what I bring with me when I stay at a hotel: yogurt, dry body brush, daily face/body scrub and a special pillow. I also share the secret of “how to keep drinking hot water while in the hotel room!” Drinking hot water is a very important routine in my day. I do not want to break the routine even when I am traveling! I shot this video while I was on my work/vacation trip with my business partner and sister in law, Maria. The reason? Because traveling can affect your skin condition: your routine changes, the environment is different, you eat out more so your diet is different, and sleep patterns can be affected due to the hotel bed. All of these things can affect you more than you think.

REST is lost in critical brain regions of people with Alzheimer’s (right). (Source: Yankner Lab)"
"Why do neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect only the elderly? More than a century of research into the causes of dementia has focused on the clumps and tangles of abnormal proteins that appear in the brains of people with neurodegenerative diseases. However, scientists know that at least one piece of the puzzle has been missing because some people with these abnormal protein clumps show few or no signs of cognitive decline...."
The truth is when you learn to let go, you don't live with less at all. You make room for the things that matter the most, the things that aren't even "things" at all.

From the post:
Looking back through the glass window inside the messy house, I saw a reflection of myself holding my son. That was on one side of the glass. On the other was my smart phone, my busy life that was messy and complicated and sometimes too stressful to take.
