Basic Oils and Anger

Outrage influences every one of us in various manners. A few people find that outrage is basically non-existent in their lives while others will find that in the event that they don't effectively work to manage it will assume control over their lives. Outrage is a characteristic feeling, something we have all accomplished sooner or later in our lives. Because it is a characteristic thing, doesn't imply that we ought to just say there is no way around it. Innumerable individuals make changes in their lives each day that influence a characteristic capacity. We are not captives to our cravings, our feelings, or our bodies. We as a whole can settle on decisions. I understand that a few people have hormonal scatters that settle on it difficult to settle on a decision on occasion, yet we can address the test, address the confusion in the body, and decide to make changes that will, at last, address the displeasure the executives issue. It will take persistence, however there is cons…

The most important meal of the day

Somewhere in the last nine months I think I've made a discovery. Before our little bambino arrived (would that be bambina since she is a girl?), I would sleep in the morning until my body woke me up, which was always at least 10:00 AM or later. I hated missing so much of the day and not really getting my game on til noon, but I knew I needed the sleep and having no job besides wifing, I could, especially since my wonderful hubs encouraged me to get the rest I needed.

I would have a substantial breakfast of eggs, toast, hot tea, and usually also yogurt/banana/flaxseed meal while pregnant. But I would still hit a slump about an hour after breakfast, even after all that sleep, and it was so frustrating. However, for the last nine months I've been getting up between 7 and 8:00, eating breakfast (same as above minus the yogurt), and going back to bed during the baby's first nap. Granted, I might be in bed during my after-breakfast slump, but I seem to be more energetic overall and wonder if my blood sugar got too low sleeping in so long and the extra sleep backfired.

Just a thought for any others out there with the luxury of sleeping in or blood sugar issues that might require a little bit of night-time noshing perhaps. I always hated getting up to find something to eat in the night when pregnant and an empty stomach prevented sleep, because you get so woken up and you have to brush your teeth afterward (which requires turning on a bright light) and what you ate might give you too much energy when trying to fall back to sleep. But...if it gives you more energy overall, it might be worth it.
