If you’re like most of us who are working on your farm and still keep a regular job to make ends meet, then stress is something you are sure to experience from day to day. First, there’s a fight for space in the bathroom to use sink or mirror. People get in each other’s way and chaos follows. At other times, morning mayhem comes from simply being disorganized. You can’t find your briefcase, you’ve just run out of breakfast cereal, and you forgot to arrange day-care for the kids the night before. And if that weren’t enough you get to participate in the morning rush to work. It’s all one big headache that makes you want to turn around and head back home, right? But there is a way to begin the day with a smile instead of a grimace. Here’s how to enjoy mornings and create a positive mood, no matter what the morning has in store for you.

Grab “me time” in the morning

You might not realize mornings are ripe for “me time.” The rest of the day may be filled with chores, but when you open your eyes, you can affirm your sanity and peace of mind. Rise and shine before your family gets up or the neighbors are noisy.

Get up and greet the morning with a mug of coffee and ease into the day. Or meditate, use positive affirmations, and set a healthy intention to take into the rest of the day.

Prepare for a terrific day

Gather all you need for the day the night before so you are ready. Not needing to panic will give you space to breathe calmly and enjoy the morning without dashing. Also, your preparation will make you feel positive and capable. Having gathered all the tools required to make sure your day goes well, you’ll be off to a good start and continue to be upbeat and organized.

Remember to get tiresome chores out the way you would rather not deal with in the morning the day before too. Make necessary phone calls and arrangements, prepare your packed lunch, and take out the trash so your to-do list isn’t chock-a-block when you rise.

Don’t begin the morning with stress. Otherwise, your mood will be negative and you won’t have a good day. Prepare and organize the night before and set the alarm to wake you a little earlier than normal so you can enjoy time to yourself. As a result, you’ll start the day without anxiety.

What’s The Deal With All The Skin Care Products? Try This Before You Buy

Wrinkles happen. As you progress along the timeline of life, your skin begins to lose the baby-like plumpness it once had when you were young as a result of natural collagen loss. At some point in adulthood, the laugh lines and creases around your eyes from many smiles and good times begin to emerge, and you are left wondering how to make them fade away into the sunset.

The skincare industry makes billions of dollars every year on anti-aging creams, serums, and cleansers that promise to reduce wrinkles and give your skin a healthy glow, but often fall short on the results you desire. Instead of paying $20-$100 on a single jar of your favorite anti-aging aid, try these natural remedies for great-looking skin:

Eat More Fish

Fish is considered to be a low-fat protein source that does wonderful things for the entire body, including keeping skin looking young. Incorporate fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, into your diet so that your skin heals itself and takes back the plump and fresh look it once did. Omega-3 fatty acids offer antioxidants that get rid of toxins and thus gives your skin a silky and smooth appearance.

Banana and Honey Mask

Mash up a banana and mix it up with honey to create a completely chemical free face mask that will do wonders for dry skin. Bananas contain vitamins A, D, and E that protect your skin from harmful UV rays and provide it with a clean and radiant glow. Honey contains antibacterial properties and humectant, which will lock in moisture and keep your face from becoming dry in the elements. Apply the mixture to your face and let it soak into your skin for approximately 15 minutes before rinsing.

Good Old-Fashioned Water

If your skin is more dry than normal and there are bags forming under your eyes, consider incorporating more water into your diet. One of the biggest causes of dry skin, other than the weather, is simply that you are dehydrated and need more liquids in your body. Drink the recommended amount of water for your body type each day and soon you will notice healthier looking skin. To enhance the skin healing properties of your water, infuse it with citrus fruits or cucumber slices to get more vitamins into your system.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is rich and bold, and can be used for more than just cooking. It has been used to moisturize skin for thousands of years and does not leave a greasy residue behind. Olive oil contains good fats and hydroxytyrosol, which fight off the free radicals that damage your skin. Olive oil also contains a healthy dose of vitamin E which provides your skin with beneficial antioxidants. Rub a small amount of olive oil on your face before you go to sleep at night and wake up to a fresh look, radiant glow, and a noticeable reduction in wrinkle definition.

Pineapple and Lemon Juice Rub

To combat wrinkles and the signs of aging quickly, give your face a nice citrus rinse with a mixture of pineapple juice and lemon juice. Not only will your skin smell clean and fresh, but the acids found in the citrus juice will go to work smoothing out your skin and making it soft. Citrus juices are rich in vitamin C, which is great for good skin health.

Instead of spending money on expensive creams and wrinkle treatments, first try these ingredients you most likely already have at home. You will be rewarded with healthy looking skin and can take years off the clock in no time.
