Fall Update


 

Lots going on this fall.

Hi! I’ve been busy with a new part-time job since May. I’m working at the local hospital doing registration of lab and test patients in several settings. I enjoy it, but I’m missing writing, so I’ve dived back in with a freelance job writing blog posts for Personal Resilience.

I’ve just finished uploading Hoarder’s Nightmare to Createspace for paperback publication. You can find it there in a week or less.

In addition, Christmas bazaar/craft and gift show season is almost here and I’ve signed up for one with some other authors. Featured will be Hoarder’s Nightmare, Medieval Blood, Prophecy of Enchantria, and Godly Expectations in paperback. I also hope to get some text blocks made with writing and reading themes, like little signs you can put on your desk or a shelf. Also some handmade smudge sticks I put together this morning.

Join me December 2 if you’re in the area.

I haven’t had any free books on Amazon in awhile so it’s high time. Blood Moon, an anthology of stories about change, will be free on Amazon October 16-20. Here’s a link.

Finally, watch for some fun giveaways coming soon.

Cheers,

Mary Blowers

Book Review: It Feels Good to Feel Good


Buy “Feels Good” here and it’s FREE Sept. 19-21

It Feels Good to Feel Good by Cheryl Meyer is packed with information about toxins in our food and cosmetics. Beyond that, it gives us information on avoiding these toxins and chemicals and where to find affordable alternatives. Also, every chapter includes lists of things you can do to improve in different areas. For example, you can eat only organically grown meat and eggs and vegetables or you can eat more seeds and fewer animal products in general. There is mention of the current bee crisis which involves collapsing hives due to an unknown factor. Nobody likes bees, but do you like honey, do you like that plants are pollinated so that we can get food, do you like that trees are pollinated so that we can get oxygen? It would be a very far-reaching problem if the bees were to disappear.

Meyer goes into great detail on the fine points of various food choices that we make every day. For instance, do you eat full-fat or low-fat dairy? Farm-raised or wild caught fish? Shrimp from Asia or Mexico? Knowing the answers will make a huge difference in your health. When you eat according to the rules stated by this author, it is said that you will detox, lose weight, clear your skin, get regular, and many other benefits.

Cosmetics are a very high source of toxicity in your body. Think about it. You either apply products to your skin, spray them on, or put them on your lips which you will end up ingesting. When applying products around your eyes, they can get immediately into your bloodstream from the capillaries that are close to the surface. From there it is just a short distance to the brain. Cleaning supplies are another hotbed of chemicals. Check out the resources listed to find out what is in your products and follow the rest of the suggestions in this book. It’s very comprehensive and will help your health dramatically.

Book Review: Nourish


Buy “Nourish” here

The word “nourish” to some people means to eat food that is good for you. Stephanie Hrehirchuk has recreated the concept of nourishing to mean doing anything that is good for you. For instance, creating a new habit not to eat sweets would be nourishing. You could eat fresh fruit or whole grains instead. The ultimate goal of this book is to walk you through a detox of your body, mind, and spirit. Eating the same foods over and over, especially if they are processed or contain chemicals, is to toxify your body. Hence, you can detox and get rid of some of that kind of things out of your cells. Nourishing practices also include meditating, self-massage, herbal remedies to help you relax and heal, and preparing beautiful and healthful food for yourself and your family. Even time can be nourishing. When a person is stressed, oftentimes all they need is to get away by themselves and or/with God, to think, reflect, journal, or just do nothing.

The book “Nourish” really appealed to me because I have many major stressors in my life. In addition, it is beautifully designed with drawings and poetry.  Hrehirchuk even has a Facebook group to follow along and discuss the detoxes. I can see now that I can rework some of them so they are less stressful to me. This book will be good for any overworked or overstressed person, for instance, those who take care of others, those who work long hours with little appreciation, or even mothers of young children. There is a 21-day detox and a three-day detox outlined in Nourish, depending on how much you need to detox and how much time you have. The three-day detox could be more intense, but at the same time, it could be more manageable because it is only three days. I think it would do everyone a lot of good to take some of these principles to heart and learn how to relax and be good to themselves.

Book Review: Speed Up Your Metabolism: Strategies That Will Help You Lose More Weight!


Buy here: http://amzn.to/2pUBGnR  Free right now until May 11.

If you’re looking to try a new diet book this spring, this may be the one. I knew some of the tips in Speed Up Your Metabolism, but had forgotten or stopped using them. But some of Smith’s tips were new to me. Reading the book inspired me to drop a few pounds this spring. I especially liked the list of foods that will speed metabolism. I like green tea and it would be oh, so easy to drink three cups a day.

Starting a new job last week I had to give up my “life of leisure” and start getting up early every day again. I could use some more energy and this book will definitely help me to get it. If I lose a few pounds in the process, so much better.

Enjoy! And let me know if this book helps you.
