What could be more refreshing than those elegant, chilled pitchers of cucumber-infused water offered in spa waiting areas? You can bring the same sense of serenity and healthy indulgence home by making your own spa water with simple ingredients.
Cucumber Water: peel off strips of cucumber skin to expose more of the flesh (and release more of the flavor) before slicing rounds and immersing them in a large pitcher of chilled water.
Rosemary Lime Water: float lime slices and twirl sprigs of thoroughly washed rosemary in a tall pitcher of cold water.
Watermelon Mint Water: Add chunks of watermelon (seeds removed) and mint leaves to water for an unusual flavor combination
Mint Water: Add two sprays of thoroughly washed mint and chill in fridge.
Let the water mixtures steep for at least a half hour before serving; add ice according to preference.

|Exercises are Mood Altering|
|Proper exercises can even elicit powerful mood-lifting changes. In fact, a major study performed at Duke University Medical Center in England showed that certain exercises can be just as effective as some of the most prescribed medications when it comes to alleviating major depression. The study looked at 156 elderly patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder over a 16-week period. The participants were assigned to three separate groups: group 1 exercised but had no antidepressants; group 2 took anti-depressant medication with no exercise; and group 3 took antidepressant medication and combined this with exercise. To the amazement of the researchers, all three groups showed remarkably similar improvements in their depressive states following the 16-week trial. This study, as well as numerous others, has proven that exercise should be considered a viable alternative to medication when it comes to one of our most treated disorders of aging. |

|Avoiding Environmental Chemical Exposure in Everyday Living|
|Environmental pollutants exist in air, water, food, manufactured goods, cosmetics, and dental fillings, amongst many other sources. The bad news is that it is difficult to avoid exposure to pollutants and it is estimated that the average person stores over 200 chemicals in their body; but the good news is that with education and determination, we can avoid many sources of environmental toxins, and there are proven methods of detoxifying these chemicals. So why worry?...|
