Well, believe it or not, there really is!

Taking the time to keep a priority on good nutrition and working out can really help your performance and productivity as well as your concentration and confidence.

But why, and how?

Here are more reasons that Exercise and Nutrition Help with Productivity:

1-  Mental Sharpness:  A solid nutritional eating plan and liquid supplement can help your mind to stay sharp and focused your whole life.  As you get older, your body produces less and less brain cells (known as neurogenesis).  But studies have shown that exercise and nutrition can help to slow this process down.  So as we reach an older age, those of us who exercise on a regular basis may even have more brain cells than tho…

What is Nutrient Timing? The How's and Why's of Pre, During and Post-Workout Nutrition

When it comes to staying Energetic Fit and Healthy and especially getting the most out of our workouts, the concept of Nutrition Timing, is something you're sure to hear about sooner or later...

So what is Nutrient Timing all about and how can we implement it in a simple way for best results?

As a busy mom of 3, I'm all about learning how I can take the science of techniques that have been proven to work and simplify them for my own life.

Nutrition Timing is really just the science and strategy of what and when to eat and drink certain macronutrients to best fuel your workouts, enhance performance and improve strength, endurance and recovery.

So whether you're a casual gym-goer or weekend warrior or a more serious athlete, competitive body-builder or personal trainer, Nutrition Timing is something we can all benefit from.

Nutrient Timing in a Nutshell:

Nutrition Timing really boils down to 3 main times to focus in on:

Macronutrients 101: What in the World is a Macro and what is the BEST Macronutrient Ratio to stay Energetic FIT and Healthy?

When it comes to losing weight or getting fit, it seems counting calories is a popular way to do it.  But recently I had an interesting conversation with a great fellow-fitness friend of mine that brought up another important topic when it comes to nutrition:  MACRONUTRIENTS!

After mentioning the calorie content of a salad I loved, she reminded me of the importance of paying attention to the "Macros" rather than just the calories.  It's interesting that unless you are in the fitness world you don't often hear this term but I thought it would be good to explore it a little deeper to help the rest of us understand it better, what it is and how it works.
So What in the World are are "Macros", anyways?  And Why Should we Care?
Are they just for Bodybuilders and fitness competitors and why should the rest of us pay attention to them??
When it comes to the nutritional needs of our body, the way we divide our basic dietary needs is by:
Macronutrients: Carbohydrates, Pr…

Modern Aroma Review: Wearable Essential Oil Diffusers and Therapeutic Jewelry

Recently, I reconnected with a great friend of mine, Miriah Everett, who owns a unique business called, Modern Aroma, that solved that issue of bringing your favorite oils with you in a beautiful way. Miriah designs and creates beautiful jewelry that doubles as wearable essential oil diffusers. Or portable essential oil diffusers that double as jewelry! ;) Depending on how you like to look at it! ;) Either way the pieces are absolutely stunning to wear and look at. Each is handmade from beautiful and unique gemstones, lava stone and sterling steel. How to use the Modern Aroma essential oil jewelry: The concept is really quite simple and makes so much sense: Just apply 1 drop of your favorite essential oil per lava stone, let sit then rub remaining oil into lava stone and it will last an average of 1-3 days. Similarly, the necklaces are made with gemstones each representing different positive feelings, goals and intentions and containing sterling silver lockets that open to reveal a spe…
