A Perfect Rose Loose Leaf Tea Blend

A Perfect Rose Loose Leaf Tea Blend

Good Morning World,

On a lighter note from the most recent world new’s (Covid-19), I recently discovered Sheffield Spice & Tea Co while shopping in the surrounding area. I immediately was attracted to this place and had to go and take a look inside. When I walked in my first thoughts were, “Finally a spice shop!” I’ve attempted to blend my own spices while cooking, but it’s always hit or miss with the outcome of the flavor I am seeking.

As I looked around the woman working there let me know of the products that they carried, where everything was located and that their herbs were sourced from around the world. The shop, being the only one of its kind in town, has a range of excellent spice blends… And loose leaf TEA!

I’ve searched for a pleasant rose tea  for a while. And, I’m up this morning enjoying a cup.

Benefits Of Rose Tea:

• Naturally Caffeine Free
• Antioxidants
• Relaxation Effects
• Good For Skin: Full of Vitamins A and E
• Vitamin C Content Aids Recovering From The Cold and Flu
• Improves Our Digestion

This particular blend is a combination of Black Tea, Rosehip, Rose Petals, and Blackberry leaves. Though the ingredients includes other herbs (plants), Rose is the primary flavor and scent. The additional ingredients have their own benefits as well!

If you are ever in Las Vegas visit this wonderful spice and tea shop. Choose from their wide selection of exotic teas and flavorful spices from all over the world.

Healthy Eats: The Benefits of Mangoes & Raspberries

Healthy Eats: The Benefits of Mangoes & Raspberries

Fruits: Natures Original Candy

As someone who doesn’t eat candy anymore, I have to admit that the cravings are still there from time to time. But, the last few times (it’s been years) that I indulged in eating my childhood favorite sweets, none of them were as good as I could remember. In fact the recipes would tastes totally different.

Originally when invented, candy was made from sugar, honey, nuts, spices, and fruits. Might I add, used for ceremonial reasons, gift’s to the Gods and Goddesses, but not eaten by common citizens. Today, if you look at the ingredients of candy on it’s packaging you will read that most are made of artificial colors (dyes), flavoring, and words that the average person can not pronounce.

While, fruit is just fruit. Living out in the desert (Las Vegas, NV) I no longer have the luxury of the abundance of Farmers Market’s like there is in California where I would have a plethora of fresh fruit options. What I have found here is that I have to spend more money to find quality produce. Which I can admit I don’t mind. When it come’s to my health and eating, I rather spend the extra money on natures goodness.

Mango Benefits

• High Level of Vitamin C
• Antioxidants
• Helps In Digestion
• Promotes Healthy Gut
• Lowers Cholesterol
• Clears The Skin

Raspberry Benefits

•  Low In Sugar
• Antioxidants
• High In Fiber

Enjoy a fresh cut mango with a side of raspberries and reap their wonderful benefits.Add fruits to your next morning meal, or even as a dessert after dinner.

How To Tell That You Have Grown In The Past Year

How To Tell That You Have Grown In The Past Year

Personal development  involves the evolution and improvement of the person. Self growth as it is often called, is a lifelong process. Understanding this part of yourself is a way for you to evaluate who you are and how to increase your perspective. A method of getting the best out of your potential.

The emotional state that a person devises about them self goes hand in hand with success in living, and thriving. As this transformational journey is recognized, you feel good knowing that you are improving to be your best self.

Finances Have Changed For The Better – You may not have become a millionaire in the past year (congrats if you did), but getting a hold of your finances and credit is an excellent sign of progression. Paying off a collections item(s), paying down, or off a credit card, putting more into your savings, or learning about different currencies (bitcoin, etc.) are all GREAT.

Health Has Improved – You lost weight, or gained healthy weight. Added outdoor (or indoor) workouts, started going to the gym weekly or when you can, or started attending a yoga class, shows that you care about your body and mind.

Personal development involves the evolution and improvement of the person.

Relationships Have Better Communication – It takes two to tango. At times we fault the other person without hearing them out or by being defensive. Pride may keep us from admitting our faults or emotions. Honestly when a family member, friend, employer, or coworker tells you how they feel and it at first upsets you, engage in listening. Hear the person out and respond without emotion, if you are in a calm state begin the conversation with keeping it constructive in mind. If this is not a good time to talk, explain that you will get back to them, unless the matter is urgent.

Its ok to admit your opinion as well as what you feel you could have done differently to have prevented this encounter (if anything). Try not to forget to listen actively. Over time you will notice yourself being calmer and having less disagreements with people.

Understanding this part of yourself is a way for you to evaluate who you are and how to increase you perspective.

Confidence Has Increased – Feeling good about yourself allows you to walk with your head high, being proud of who you are.  An individual’s self-worth supports how one responds to society, also their achievements in life. Non-verbal statements such as body language is observed by other people as a visible sign of if it would be ok to start up a conversation or not with someone. And many other thoughts from them based on how you display how you naturally carry yourself. Taking into mind that things such as sitting up straight not only is wholesome for your health but correspondingly is attractive.
