Tuesday's Tip Jar - Essential Sleep Nutrients

Last week I've discussed here some tips on fighting insomnia and one of the best way is to use the breathing method. Breathing method is just like the old way of counting sheep but this time it's the breath that you have to count and not the sheep lol!

Well not all insomnia can be treated with the breathing method as some people lack the necessary vitamins and minerals in our diet. Actually all you need is a multi-vitamin to be sure you're getting the nutritional elements needed for a good proper sleep. Little did we know that lack of iron and copper can disrupt your rest and sleep.

So now we should list here the sources of the two mineral supplements so we can start supplying our body. For iron you can munch on almonds or raisins and drink a glass of warm milk before hitting the bed. For copper we have many sources of this mineral and one of the best is clams; other sources are apricots, grape nuts cereal and whole wheat pasta. So you can mix in milk, grape nuts cereal and a few raisins in your bowl and you're sure to hit the sack! Happy sleep then!


Start of Teen Life!

My daughter will enter high school this coming June and with it her teen life will soon start. I want to be a part of it and as such I teach Ruth several things that will change in her looks and attitude. She’ll soon be thinking about her hair, her weight, crushes and some teenage matters. It’s also the time that sometimes she’ll develop pimples or acne which is very common among teens. I was just lucky when I was young that I’m not so prone with skin face disorder unlike my other classmates who needs acne solutions to make their face clear and back to normal condition. I think it’s the most common problem of most teens and parents should be aware of what’s happening in their kids in and out of the house.
