Attitude of Gratitude

20140224-204849.jpg

An attitude of gratitude is being thankful for what you already have. Gratitude only attracts more good things to your life. It is the open door to abundance. It’s easy to forget that happiness does not come from getting something that we do not have, but appreciating what we do have. You can start with something as simple as a “thank you”.

Today, I am going to challenge you to start a list. Put today’s date at the top of a sheet of paper and write down at least 10 things you are thankful for. I do this a few times per week inside a spiral notebook. This way I am able to look back and see just how much abundance in my life. This type of list is especially good to reflect upon when you’ve had a rough day.

Here are a few things that I am thankful for today:

  1. Hot coffee
  2. My dog Muffy

  3. A supportive family
  4. Friends that I can count on
  5. The ability to pay my bills on time
  6. A roof over my head
  7. Sunsets
  8. A steady source of income
  9. My curly hair
  10. Tacos!
  11. The clothes in my closet
  12. Hot showers

Remember, a few positive thoughts can change your entire day! Thank you for reading. 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

ultimate body applicator

What is the Ultimate Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that is infused with a powerful, botanically based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results in as little as 45 minutes! It continuously hydrates for firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin, and reduces the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening.

How do I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.
To use the Ultimate Body Applicator, simply open an individual Ultimate Body Applicator package (four included in each box of Ultimate Body Applicators), remove the Ultimate Body Applicator cream-infused cloth wrap, and unfold it. Place the cream-infused side of the wrap against your skin on the area of your body where you wish to see results.

How does the Ultimate Body Applicator work?
While many body wraps simply cause water loss, the Ultimate Body Applicator uses a botanically based cream formula that, when applied to the skin, gives you tightening, toning, and firming results that last. The botanical ingredients help to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin while reducing the appearance of cellulite and redefining the appearance of your body’s contours. These cutting-edge ingredients work to give you visible results in just 45 minutes, while other ingredients in the formula continue to work over the next 72 hours, leading to progressive results.

How often can I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend you use a new Ultimate Body Applicator once every 72 hours. The formula in the Ultimate Body Applicator works progressively, giving you continual results for 72 hours after use. Each individual Ultimate Body Applicator can only be used once and should be discarded after use.

How long should I leave on the Ultimate Body Applicator?
If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave the Ultimate Body Applicator on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients. For best results, use Defining Gel twice a day in between your Ultimate Body Applicator uses.

Can I wear the Ultimate Body Applicator overnight?
Just 45 minutes is all that is necessary, but you can wear the Ultimate Body Applicator longer. If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave it on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients.

Can I use more than one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time?
Ultimate Body Applicators are intended to be used on one area of the body at a time. The Ultimate Body Applicator targets the specific area where it is applied, so using one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time on one area of the body will allow your body to better absorb the formula more effectively and, consequently, see the best results because its effects are being targeted to one specific area.

What about for arms and legs? Is it okay to wrap them at the same time?
You may use two Ultimate Body Applicators on areas such as the arms or legs (one on each arm/leg) in order to promote symmetrical results.

What size is the Ultimate Body Applicator?
Each Ultimate Body Applicator is approximately 13” x 21” and comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.

Is this just water weight loss?
Absolutely not! This is not a water weight wrap. The results from a full application (4 wraps) are real and can last from 2-6 months depending on your lifestyle habits. You can place the wrap anywhere on your body except the face.

How much water should I drink when I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend that you drink up to half of your body weight (in pounds) in fluid ounces of water daily. Staying hydrated is key to helping you see maximum results with the Ultimate Body Applicator.

How long do the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator last?
While results from the Ultimate Body Applicator are lasting, you can counteract the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator by eating poorly and not regularly exercising (as is true with any weight loss or body contouring results). Applying Defining Gel, which can help improve skin’s texture and tightness, between Ultimate Body Applicator uses can help ensure that you maximize and maintain your results.

What in the World is Carrageenan?

Carrageenan is a polysaccharide (a carbohydrate molecule) that is derived from red seaweed. It is made by boiling the seaweed and extracting the carrageenan. It is often used in conjunction with agar, guar gum, or xanthan gum in foods. It is rampant in processed foods but is also found in many foods branded “organic.”

For over 50 years the food industry has been using carrageenan in foods and, thankfully, the studies go back just as far. Researchers have time and time again proven carrageenan causes allergies, induces inflammation, and leads to a host of health problems. Yet, this emulsifier is still allowed to be added to foods!

Carrageenan is a powerful allergen found to cause anaphylaxis in humans. Researchers actually use carrageenan to produce allergies and inflammation in animals to better study their reactions to pain medication or antihistamines. Because carrageenan is found in baby formulas and other milk products, many people mistake their reaction to carrageenan for a dairy allergy and go on drinking plant-based milk substitutes — which also often contain this allergen as well.

Thursday Quotes

“Don’t be perfect, Be you. Don’t be what you think they want you to be. Be what you know you are. Don’t look outside yourself for anything. It’s all within.”

– Jackson Kiddard

“Death tugs at my ears and says: “Live, I am coming.”

– Oliver Holmes

“So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure…That you really are strong, And you really do have worth. And you learn and learn…”

– Comes to the Dawn by Veronica Shoffstall

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

— Jelaluddin Rumi
