Detox Lifestyle

Instead of using the harsh techniques of detoxing, I have read about an idea called Detox Lifestyle. This is the process of making small changes daily to live a healthier lifestyle. For me, this process is more practical and as I say all the time “small steps can lead to big changes”.

Here’s How You Can Be Successful With Your New Year’s Resolutions

What Is A New Year’s Resolution In order to succeed with New Year’s Resolutions we must first define what it is and it’s purpose. A New Year’s Resolution is when a person seeks to make a change of an undesired habit or when one sets a goal to accomplish something.  Many of us have started new year’s resolutions and started off on the right track, only to fall or fail at what we started out to do.  The purpose is great because it is for the bettering of one’s self or situation.  However, the goals we are committing to may be too steep...

For many of us dieting is a part of our lives. We see these dream ads of going from a size 20 to a size 6 and fall for it. However there is no such thing.

I personally have tried many different diets, but never got the results I was seeking. So I have chosen to eat healthier. Its a better alternative to dieting and putting yourself through the torture of not...
