Posted on March 13, 2019 in Uncategorized

Wellness holidays are becoming more popular compared to traditional sightseeing & shopping holidays as people are recognizing the importance of taking care of their health as our society becomes more stressed, more polluted & our bodies suffer and become more susceptible to diseases.

Feeling stressed, tired, lethargic or in need of some pampering & rejuvenation? Then consider taking a wellness holiday for your next break. Wellness holidays such as Detox holidays, Spa Holidays & Yoga Holidays are becoming more popular than your traditional sightseeing & shopping holidays as people are starting to recognize the importance of taking care of themselves both mentally & physically especially as our society becomes more stressed, more polluted & our bodies suffer & become more susceptible to diseases such as H1N1.

Detox Holidays
Due to the effects of modernization our environment has become increasingly polluted with toxins and harmful substances. The air we breathe is polluted with emissions from cars, factories and cigarette smoke, the food we ingest is becoming more processed containing additives & chemicals, household & personal care products more often than not contain toxic chemicals.

The colon is like the natural sewerage system of your body and if these toxins in the colon build up over time, they putrefy, ferment and are absorbed through the porous walls into your bloodstream. These toxins can overload the organs of the body which can cause the gradual weakening of our immunity system leading to sickness, disease and accelerated aging. Symptoms such as weight gain, lack of energy, constipation/diarrhea, protruding abdomen, fatigue, allergies, and poor digestion could be signs that there are too much toxins in the body.

One thing we can do to help rid our body of these damaging substances and improve our immunity system is to undergo regular detoxification cleansing monthly, quarterly or yearly by simply taking a Detox holiday. A Detox holiday usually ranges from as little as 3 days to up to 14 days depending on individual preference. Detox holidays program vary from a juice fasting program to a raw foods program to a program where light meals are served. They usually consist of colon hydrotherapy or colema sessions, supplements, massages, yoga classes & broth soups providing a very comprehensive program to help the body cleanse itself. The key to a Detox program is to cleanse the colon & this can be done either through a self-administered colema or a colon hydrotherapy session whereby a gentle flow of water is used to flush the colon to remove built up toxins and intestinal “plague” facilitating a healthier colon and digestive system.

The benefits of a Detox are plenty such as weight loss, clearer & more radiant skin, improved blood circulation, increased metabolism, healthier digestion, regularity of bowel movements & improved energy levels. A Detox Holiday is definitely one where you will go away feeling that you have done something good for your body and your health!

The Basics of Holiday Party Planning

Posted on March 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to host holiday parties for friends and family. What could be a better way to show those closest to us how much we appreciate them. Holiday party planning takes a bit of preparation, so let’s get started.

First, when it comes to which holiday might be best for hosting a large get together, you have lots of choices, depending on your schedule and what type of party you would like to throw.

Different holidays traditionally include different types of events. For example, 4th of July or Memorial Day parties are usually outdoors, such as a barbecue, pool party or picnic at a local park.

Thanksgiving parties are typically dinner parties, Christmas parties are cocktail or reception type parties, while New Year’s Eve run the gamut of anything from dinner parties to theme parties.

Planning a holiday party is similar to planning any other type of social event. The first step is always deciding on a budget. The budget determines how many people you can host and the menu options.

Once the budget is set, next is the guest list. When making the guest list, consider both the space available for the event and if there are enough tables and chairs for everyone. Renting additional tables, chairs, linens or even plates and glassware is always an option, but do so in advance to avoid any last minute scrambling for supplies.

One of the main differences with a holiday party is usually there are other activities or celebrations going on around the same time which will require your attention. For example, during the Christmas season additional tasks might include holiday decorating, shopping for presents and other traditional Christmas activates, all in additional to your holiday party planning. If you find you’re running short on time, you can always hire someone to assist you in anything from housekeeping to catering to even personal shopping.

Holiday parties can be anything from a casual potluck or pizza party to a grand, sit down dinner. The traditional approach is to purchase party supplies, such as decorations, to match the holiday, however if you’re feeling adventurous, add a unique theme to your party. The 4th of July barbeque becomes a day in the old west or Valentine’s Day could take on the theme from a romantic classic film such as “Casablanca.” Incorporate the theme into the invitations, music, food, decorations and even ask to guest to dress in corresponding attire.

Parties are a great time to relax and enjoy life. The best holiday parties always involve a little creativity, good food and the company of those closest to you. So next holiday, take a little extra time to celebrate by throwing a fabulous party.
