Signs Your Dog May Be Allergic to Chicken

 

Dog’s being allergic to chicken is one thing we didn’t expect to hear from our vet when we took Leona in for a routine check up a few months after we got her. The vet started questioning us on all things Leona. I felt like I was on a game show and if I got a wrong answer, they’d take her away from us. I was nervous. In questioning us on her behavior and demeanor, she asked if Leona licked her paws a lot–not just a few licks, but a consistent licking that was noticeable. German and I looked at one another and in a puzzled tone answered yes. All this time, (especially at bedtime) Leona would spend minutes licking her paws to the point where I’d sometimes place a pillow over my head to mute out the sound. Usually I’d put the pillow over my husband’s face to stop the snoring. No, it’s not smothering if you don’t press to hard.

How to Get Happy Fast!

How to Get Happy Fast!

How to Get Happy Fast? Well, it’s the odd time of year when the weather messes with us, at least in New York. One day I’m wearing short shorts having sun beams fill my body with vitamin D and the next I’m getting snow pellets violently hoisted in my hair. In addition to Mother Nature being bipolar, everyday life stress tends to get the better of us. Why is that? There isn’t a stable sense of what’s happening lately—especially with the political climate that’s out there. We can’t get a true grasp of where we’re headed as a nation, much less you as a person.

Waking Up with Morning Anxiety

anxiety-in-new-york-skyline

Are you waking up with morning anxiety? So many of us have been hit hard by the fact that loud-mouth Donal Trump is now president-elect Trump and in a few short weeks, he’ll be the commander in chief for the United States of America.

Since the outcome of the election — many people (including me) have seen a little less color in their life, their food has a little less taste and the idea of the holiday season being so close, well we say, “Bah Hum Bug” with gusto!

Anxiety is part of life but it doesn’t have to cripple our productivity, it’s like a bad hair day — you don’t chop all your hair off because of it, you slap on a cap and keep it moving.

Waking up with anxiety isn’t fun but here are 3 things you can do to counter balance those bad juju vibes you’re getting.

  1. Meditate/Pray. For those of us who can’t pinpoint where the anxiety is coming from, sit in silence (from yourself) and get out of yourself. Reach out to your higher power (even if it’s Taylor Swift) and just get consumed in them for a minute for eight. Get lost in someone else’s words. Repeat a chant. Learn a mantra. Getting your brain to break the constant thoughts of anxiety will help you take the next step to enter into your day.
  2. Tell a friend. There is power is telling someone what you’re feeling/going through. Make sure this person doesn’t try to fix your problems by telling them in your first breathe, “I feel so much anxiety right now — all I need is silly.” Humor, silliness, LOLs might be what you need to break the anxiety up for a while. Get them to snapchat you some fun or silly snaps.
  3.  Change your environment. Are you a person who works from home? Is your office no longer brining that dose of inspiration it once used to and instead it’s helping feed the anxiety? Move. Get up and move to another location. Work from a cafe. Work from a park bench. Work from a different room/floor/office. How to get rid of morning anxiety can be as simple as breaking up the routine as it gets new thoughts flowing. Routine in our lives can add to the anxiety and being aware of the triggers is crucial. The sun never hurt anyone — and unless you’re a vampire, move by a window.

We all wake up with anxiety at time and different things work for different people. How do you fight anxiety in your life? how do you find the morning anxiety cure?
