Sometimes, the hardest questions have the simplest answers.
What most people are lacking and what keeps them from being their best is sweet, beautiful, restful sleep. Experts contend that we need roughly eight hours of sleep a night, yet most of us fall well short of that goal.
We let other seemingly more important things take priority, and it is playing havoc with the health of so many Americans. You may never hear anyone say that their lack of sleep lead to their illness, however, it may have lead to their body's inability to fight that disease.
We've all heard of those people who only slept a few hours a night, managed to keep a crazy-busy schedule, and achieved greatness. But, did they? At some point, shortchanging your body of adequate sleep will eventually take...
We're only a couple weeks into 2018, and already many of those who made New Year's resolutions have forgotten or given up on them.
Almost every day of any given week there are stadiums, gyms, tracks, and courts filled with hundreds, if not, thousands of spectators cheering wildly while a handful of participants play the game.
So, what determines who plays and who watches? Well, it comes down to who shows up ready to play whether they feel like it or not. They’re the ones who keep practicing even when they want to quit.

More than just our skin gets dry in the winter. Our sinuses dry out causing the mucus membranes to become a breeding ground for bacteria. Unfortunately, so many people suffer from respiratory problems often sending them to the doctor for a prescription.
As well as our joints drying out which leads to stiffness in our body, we can also have problems in the intestinal tract where 80% of the body’s immune system lives. If it becomes overly dry, you may have issues with constipation, gas, and bloating ending up with increased levels of toxins in the body.

Did you know that sunlight is extremely important to your health and well being? When we don't have enough sun exposure, we can suffer from a number of physical problems.
Especially in the winter, as the days are shorter and cooler, vitamin D is so beneficial to our health on every level. It has been shown to be a factor in fighting inflammation which is a culprit in so many diseases. It also helps boost our immune system which helps us fight off simple illnesses like cold, the flu, and viruses, but also serious diseases.
Vitamin D3 is produced by our skin's contact with the sun's UVB rays, and when we don't get enough, there is a cause for concern. It can lead to a number of serious illnesses including:
1. Osteoporosis - A lack of vitamin D can contribute to poor bone health. It also plays a role in how the body absorbs calcium and supports our metabolism. It is crucial that children get enough vitamin D to promote proper bone development and oral health.
