Cozying up with a warm cup of tea each morning cuts your risk of heart disease in half. But for an even bigger health boost, consider trading black tea for a hawthorn berry brew. Research shows the fruity sip lowers high blood pressure and noticeably increases blood supply to the heart. Plus, a study published in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology suggests hawthorn berry extract lowers artery-clogging “bad” LDL cholesterol by 50%, protecting against heart attack and stroke.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
