15 Tips for a Brighter Mood This Winter


15 tips for a brighter mood this winter | ourheritageofhealth.com

Of the four seasons, winter is definitely my least favorite. The month of December usually goes by pretty quickly with all of the holiday activities, but the rest of the winter always seems to last forever with the frigid temperatures, dingy snow piles, and dark, dreary days.

By the time spring finally comes around, I’m always thoroughly tired of constantly shivering, and I’m craving sunlight and warmth. If you live anywhere where the winter season is cold and dark, you probably know exactly what I mean.

Choose-What-You-Want Black Friday Sale!


Choose what you want Black Friday sale | ourheritageofhealth.com

Note: This sale has now ended.

I’m really not a fan of the traditional Black Friday shopping. (Actually, that’s an understatement. I hate the traditional Black Friday shopping!) I don’t like crowds and waiting in long lines, and even the best sale in the world isn’t going to get me inside a crowded store in the middle of the night.

What I do love, though, is staying cozy at home in my jammies and saving money while I shop online! Cozy-blanket-and-hot-cocoa shopping beats waiting-in-a-long-line shopping any day as far as I’m concerned.

That’s why I’m excited to let you know about this online Black Friday sale happening this weekend! I’ve teamed up with a bunch of my favorite healthy lifestyle bloggers to bring you tons of cook books, natural beauty books, DIY books, online classes and more with a total savings of over $350!

A surprising way to create more joy in your life | ourheritageofhealth.com

When you think of the idea of creating more joy in your life, what’s the first thing you think of?

Chances are, you probably didn’t think of words like “tidying” or “organizing” or “de-cluttering,” right?

Yeah, those are probably the last words that would have come to my mind, too! That’s why I was so surprised when I first heard about the concept that taking care of clutter could actually lead to creating more joy.

Are You Making Time to Enjoy the Simple Things?


This spring, I did something I haven’t always done other years. I’ve made a point of really enjoying and appreciating the flowers blooming this time of year and bringing some inside so I can look at them more often.

I’m not really sure why I’ve never done this other years. It’s not like it takes a lot of time to cut a few flower blooms and put them in a vase with some water. I guess I just always felt like I was “too busy” to bother. My mental to-do list was so full that there wasn’t room in my mind to even notice the flowers, let alone think to bring them inside.

Why You Should Try Aqua Aerobics


Why you should try aqua aerobics | ourheritageofhealth.com

Today I’m happy to share with you a guest post written by Kaitlin Gardener from An Apple Per Day! In this post, Kaitlin talks about an important aspect of natural health – finding simple activities that give our bodies the exercise we need and that we actually enjoy doing. 

Why You Should Try Aqua Aerobics

My friend Amy was complaining the other day about how complicated the machines were at the gym. She wanted to exercise, but longed for something simpler – something that was more natural. I had just the answer, and told her to meet me at our community pool, so I could introduce her to aqua aerobics.

6 simple ways to improve your health right now without having to spend a dime! | ourheritageofhealth.com

Sometimes it seems like there’s the misconception that you have to spend a lot of money in order to improve your health. Especially in the world of natural health, it can sometimes seem as though you can’t be truly healthy unless you’re willing to spend a fortune on vitamin and mineral supplements covering every letter of the alphabet or special tools like dehydrators and water purifiers and Vitamix blenders.

These things can all be very helpful, of course, and there are times when trying to live a healthier lifestyle may mean shifting your priorities around a bit to allow you to spend the extra money to buy organic food or natural products, or it might mean waiting a while until you can save up enough money. But if you have a tight budget and you don’t have the money to buy all of the fancy natural products and ingredients you hear about on the web, that doesn’t mean you can’t still do things to improve your health!

Dressing Your TruthTM Before and After – One Year Update

Dressing Your Truth Before and After - One Year Update | Our Heritage of Health

It’s been just a little over a year now since I first heard about Dressing Your TruthTM , so it seemed like the perfect time for a before and after update. This is the fourth post I’ve done about Dressing Your Truth, so if you haven’t yet read the other posts in this series, you can find them here:

  1. Does Your Clothing Reflect Who You Truly Are? Why Dressing Your Truth Matters

I had first heard about Dressing Your Truth when I heard some friends talking about it and mentioning which Type of Beauty they were, and that made me really curious about which of the 4 Types of Beauty I might be.

I talked a little bit more about the Dressing Your Truth program in my first post, but just to quickly summarize, the 4 Types of Beauty are:
