Stand up for yourself even if nobody is on your side.
CONTINUING ON THE SERIES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, STARTING ON THE HERB – CHAMOMILE AND THE MAIN TOPIC; STAND UP FOR YOUR LIFE.
Countdown to SPRING, 6 more days.
Every day we make dozens of little choices that either benefit us by asserting our ideas or diminish us because we hesitate in making our views or desires known.
Sometimes it seems easier to go with the flow to avoid potential conflict.
But the truth is that letting people walk all over you can increase feelings of stress and anxiety,
and it might eventually lessen your feelings of self-worth and play to your insecurities.
Learning to stand up for yourself will help you take charge of your life, believe in your own power and embolden you to reach for your dreams.
The stronger you feel, the stronger you will become.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
USE WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH AS FUEL, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND BE UNSTOPPABLE.
Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.
Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.
A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

STEPS IN AN APOLOGY
The first step of a successful apology is LOCATION.
Choose a neutral location.
One that does not make either person feel uncomfortable or overpowered.
Choose a place where there will be as little distraction as possible from telephone calls, children, or people who can over-hear.
No others should be present, unless your wrong requires a broader acknowledgement.
For instance, if you have made a false accusation or have publicly humiliated someone; you need to apologize to the person and also make a public correction.
It is wise to apologize to the individual first and ask them permission to correct it publicly.
Tomorrow, second step – TIMING
Dan and I have been posting, on the time to get ready for food and remedies that
heal; alchemy of herbs.
Today blogging on the herb; CHAMOMILE and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how chamomile can help keep your body healthy?
Chamomile plants are a member of the Asteraceae/Compositae family.
There are two common types of chamomile used medicinally today: German chamomile (chamomillarecutita) and Roman chamomile (chamaemelumnobile).
The chamomile plant is native to Western Europe and Northern Africa, but these days it’s grown all around the world in different temperate regions.
Records show that chamomile benefits have been recognized for centuries, with the herb being used both medicinally and cosmetically.
Germans have used chamomile to resolve digestive issues since at least the first century, and records show that Egyptians worshipped the plant and dedicated festivals to its healing properties.
Egyptian noblewomen were known to crush chamomile flowers and apply them to their skin to preserve their youthful glow and naturally slow signs of aging.
Romans used chamomile as a medicinal herb to fight disease and promote longevity.
Its healing qualities spread throughout Europe and eventually the British brought chamomile plants to North America.
Doctors throughout Europe and in the early settlements of America included chamomile in their medicinal bags because it was able to reduce pain, inflammation, allergies and digestive issues.
People also used it as a natural deodorant, shampoo and perfume.
Today, chamomile tea and herbal extracts are sold worldwide for human consumption.
One cup of chamomile tea has two calories, two milligrams of sodium and no cholesterol.
Chamomile is commonly used for improving many different health conditions, including;
anxiety and depression, seasonal allergies, inflammatory conditions, muscle spasms, PMS symptoms and other menstrual disorders, insomnia, skin disorders, ulcers, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, arthritis symptoms and rheumatic pain and hemorrhoids.
How can one herb do so much?
Chamomile benefits our health by soothing the body, relieving mild pain, fighting skin irritations and helping to ease anxiety.
Research also shows that drinking chamomile tea can help to improve sleep quality and fatigue, and even alleviate depression.
Drinking chamomile tea is the most popular way to use this powerful herb.
You can also diffuse chamomile essential oil at home, use the oil to soothe skin conditions.
Chamomile extracts are also available and used to relieve digestive issues and promote liver detoxification.
As Dan and I begin a new year, this is our PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Wednesday, don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself, you should speak up even if you don’t get the answer, you were looking for; it’s the fact that you said something that matters.
