It was great to have a little bit of a productive weekend. I was really happy to get to do a bit of a refresh at my Husbands office. I am not a decorator but I had a lot of fun getting things together to decorate. Everything I found was at Pier One or Home Goods. I have to admit though I love my luxury goods at times, I really love getting a good deal too. My Husband does such amazing work that the space his clients and team spend their days in deserves to be awesome.There is something about a few new things here and there that change the energy of a space. It’s like saying thank you for being our business, lets make you look awesome. Giving gratitude to your space isn’t a concept I was really familiar with until I read Mari Kondo’s book The Life Changing Magic of Tiding Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering. This book changed how I looked at space, and the things I choose to keep in them, and I think that goes for work spaces as well….but that is a story for another post!
I also had a chance to plan a little this weekend. It’s something I have been missing but since the spinal fusion I haven’t been able to sit for very long and planning with decorating takes some sitting. So we have been keeping it simple these days but I feel so much better getting the week down on paper. Hope you all had a productive weekend as well!!!

This video is about a little known but AMAZING Arbonne product, Digestion Plus! It is essential for maintaining digestive health. It is part of the Arbonne Essentials line and I will be discussing more of the products I use as the weeks go on. This product is used every day add a single serving stick pack of mild powder to any cold or room-temperature liquid. It delivers prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes to help support optimal digestive health. There are many factors that affect the balance of the gastrointestinal tract, and by supplementing the diet with probiotics and enzymes you’re making sure that you’re helping maintain the balance of “good” bacteria and also helping improve the body’s ability to digest food. Just one stick of Digestion Plus a day helps support better digestive health and wellness.
I have learned an amazing amount about digestive health from the book Brain Maker by Dr. Perlmutter, he also wrote Grain Brain (another fantastic read, or listen as I ‘read’ most of my books on Audible). What is so amazing about Brain Maker is that most of the solutions are simple things that we can change in our everyday life. The book is described on Amazon ‘Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise-from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome – the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells ten to one. What’s taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions. In BRAIN MAKER, Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, BRAIN MAKER opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.’
Taking the suggestions in Brain Maker along with those of my Functional Medicine Doctor (that’s another post), is the first step for me in regaining my Health. I will be posting more about the Brain Maker plan as I go…..
