Spring is in full swing. Spring - clean your life-regularly. We’ve all heard the phrase clutter desk, cluttered mind and there is a real benefit to organizing the chaos from the psychological point of view. Cleaning up our mess, shredding, clearing out drawers and closets are healthy habits in both a literal and metaphorical sense and, things we should do on a regular basis.
This month re-organize your house or office and create new routines, and break the monotony of daily life. For example, sorting through your closet will help you dispose of old clothes, saving you time and leaving you with garments that make you feel good. You will find that freedom, happiness, and a sense of relief will follow. Start creating something new and exciting for yourself.
This month step confidently out of your comfort zone!

Would you know a magnesium deficiency if you saw one? Most of us wouldn't — we know it's true because more than half of Americans are deficient in magnesium and don't realize it. In today's post, we'll talk about how a magnesium deficiency can affect your health, how much you need, and where to get it.
As you get older, being healthy can involve a lot of numbers. From weight and blood pressure to blood glucose levels and cholesterol, there are so many numbers that are used to assess the state of your health. One of those key measurements which you need to keep track of is nutrient deficiencies.
The most commonly known deficiency is iron deficiency, also known as anemia. It can cause extreme fatigue, headaches, dizziness, and pale skin. Vitamin D deficiency is another nutrient deficiency, one that is now starting to be added by some physicians to standard lab tests. But there is another important nutrient that is often not checked: magnesium. It’s estimated that over 50% of the American population consumes less than the estimated average requirement (EAR) of magnesium, which is 255-265 milligrams a day for most adult women, and 330-350 milligrams a day for most adult men.
What is magnesium?
Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in the body. Magnesium plays an important role in energy production, protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, as well as blood pressure and blood glucose control in the body. Good sources of magnesium include:
Dry roasted almonds: One ounce of dry roasted almonds is equal to about 20/% of your daily recommended value of magnesium. Spinach: You can get about 20% of your daily recommended value of magnesium from one-half cup of spinach. Cashews: One ounce of dry-roasted cashews can provide about 19% of your daily recommended value of magnesium. Peanuts: Get about 16% of your daily recommended value of magnesium from One-quarter cup of oil-roasted peanuts.
Other foods that contain 10% or more of your daily recommended value of magnesium include:
2 large shredded wheat biscuit
1 cup non-GMO almond milk
½ cup cooked black beans or shelled edamame
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 slices whole-wheat bread
1 cup cubed avocado
3.5-ounce baked potato with skin
½ cup cooked brown rice
8 ounces low-fat plain yogurt
If it seems overwhelming to track, start by writing down everything you eat and drink for a few days. Then see if any of the foods you eat match up with any of the magnesium-rich foods listed above. If not, start slowly adding some magnesium-rich foods to your meals and snacks.
Even with all these magnesium-rich foods, it's surprisingly difficult to get enough magnesium from diet alone (that's why 70% of us are deficient in it). For this reason, it's a good idea to consider a high-quality, natural, magnesium supplement — but make sure it's derived from natural sources, like seawater, not synthetic ingredients created in a lab.
Today, I love this life I have created.
