Heartiness Approach Newsletter – June 8, 2018 – Thank your for joining us.

We Discussed the Stress in Our Lives This Week

During our LIVE Video this week the subject of stress was brought up. Some of the remedies for stress include the following:
1. Get a good night’s sleep – Here are two videos we have done in the past on sleep.  Sleep my Child and Get Some Sleep 

2. Find a way that you like to relax and MAKE yourself DO IT.
Read, Hike, Fish, Take a Ride, Talk, Swim, Meditation, Play a game. What is your way?

3. Exercise – What is your favorite kind? What does your body need to do to get Endorphins working for you.

4. Simplify your life. What can you eliminate in your life that makes you TOO busy. It is actually very freeing.

5. Have a friendship and nourish that friendship. Work at it. Keep it strong.

My Book, “Voices From My Heart” is available on Amazon. One of the topics in this book is how to deal with stress.

Our Blog of the Week – Going Back To Our Roots

If We Build it, Will They Come?

You know when you walk onto land for the first time you try to feel it and understand it. Often, like one of our homesteads in the past, the land has been sleeping for a very long time and needs plants and animals to bring it alive.

We have several gardens growing and even have a small family using a tiny part of the land to grow some food.

Now we need animals. We have built a chicken tractor and we are trying to find chickens that we can use to till up the ground so we are looking for older ones someone else may be wanting to cull out. If that is you and you live in SW Missouri, email rhenda@heartinessapproach.com.

We love Missouri and we are making small steps of progress.

All meals and snacks consist of the following:

A Real Carbohydrate
A Good Protein
A Correct Fat
A Non-starchy Vegetable

These are a few of the meals and snacks we have had this week. My camera is making them all look bland and dark but they were full of vibrant vegetables, delicious taste, and a wide variety.

Top – We had this Avocado Toast for breakfast with a small class of raw milk and apples. Slice a boiled egg and place over the avocado. We added thinly sliced onions. Drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Delicious.change from a hot meal. If you are on the go, you can take this one in the car with you. Just cut it in half for easy eating.
