Rave/Ponder/Well-Being: 21 Day Meditation Experience with Oprah & Deepak

The Oprah & Deepak Meditation Experience starts today! This fun and free opportunity occurs once or twice a year. You are led through a mantra based meditation with a different meaningful intention each day based on the experience’s theme. There is a sign up, but an email will be sent to you each day with a link to the day’s meditation. Once logged in, you can gain access to not only the meditation but a message of the day and an online journal to capture any thoughts. And don’t forget about the Six Simple Steps to Meditation that I shared with a few weeks ago to get started! Namaste.

Well-Being: Cold Combat

wpid-20150306_133305.jpg

Hopefully nearing the end of this wretched cold and flu season, there are still folks out there suffering with a wicked winter cold. You can count me among those sufferers. My husband has been sucking on zinc lozenges for weeks now keeping the bugs at bay. I, however, cannot stand the taste of them nor enjoy the coating left on the tongue afterwards. If only there were an alternative.

Alas, I found one….and it dissolves quickly and doesn’t taste half bad either. Sambucol Black Elderberry Cold & Flu Relief is a serious miracle worker and homeopathic to boot! I was coughing, sneezing, stuffy and runny, had a sinus headache and overall felt pretty miserable. I took one of these quick dissolving tabs before bed and woke up feeling significantly better. I took another when I woke up the next morning and improved further. The directions say to take one every 3 hours. I haven’t been quite that consistent but can tell you that I am no longer stuffy, runny, headachey or miserable. I’m not quite 100% but pretty damn close. I’ll take it.
