What I learn when I listen and heed advice

Happy Friday!  Hope your week has been joyful.  Today I would like to discuss what I learn when I listen and heed advice.

I am the first to admit that I can be a little stubborn and am sometimes slow to heed advice (Perhaps larger ears would help!), but lately, the benefits of listening and heeding have been great!

listening and heeding advice

The most obvious one has been to let my hair go and allow the waves to take over.  

I have spent years straightening and taming, and discounting advice to embrace the waves.

But, now I am wondering why I was so stubborn!  This is the new me and I am so glad I finally heeded the advice to let go and let wave.

Regular readers know that I struggle with sinus issues and have my entire life.  In the past five years, I have had two major sinus surgeries.

When I saw the NAVAGE NASAL CARE SYSTEM come out, I balked at the price and did not get one until recently.

But, for all of you sinus suffers, this machine is amazing!  Use distilled water and follow cleaning instructions.

I am so glad I decided to heed the advice, and add this machine to my daily routine.  

I thought my little hand held saline wash bottle was getting it done, but recently began to develop another sinus backup…I have been flabbergasted at what this machine does. 

Highly recommend for you or any family member.

These shoes are another example of advice given to me that I discounted because of price.

Mr. B is an avid runner and has been telling me for years that I needed to use the ALTRA SHOES for walking and working out.

I thought I did not need that expensive of a shoe to get done what I want to get done on a daily basis.

However, when I began to walk 2 miles in the neighborhood this summer in the mornings, the shoes I was wearing became a problem.

He shook his head at me and encouraged me to just give ALTRA shoes a try…so I did.

Wow…what a difference.  I am now walking 3- 3.5 miles…and it is easier!  Again, I am kicking myself that I waited so long.  I hope to reach 5 miles as a summer goal and now believe it possible with these shoes.

I knew that both green tea and turmeric are beneficial, but it took me a long time to make them part of my daily health routine.

At first, I wasn’t crazy about the taste of green tea, but now actually prefer it!  I cannot go a day without it and do believe it has helped boost metabolism.

My current favorite is this Bigelow Benefits Tea called REFRESH.…kind of perfect since I am in a Style Refresh!! Very rich, delicious green tea.

I know I am slow to come around sometimes, but at least I eventually came around and learned my lesson in these areas.

But for those struggling with sinus and summer colds, here is my advice to you….

listen and heed advice.

MY HOMEMADE CHICKEN SOUP

This soups always works when I am feeling a summer cold or sinus virus come one!  Packed with nutrients…but I always remind you…the stock is the key!  Just isn’t the same with store brand stock.

Would anyone like to share lessons you have been slow to embrace, but glad you finally heeded the advice? Would love to know I am not the only one!

I looked over the shoes in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and found these fun options…great time to save on shoes…

Thanks for being here and hope your Friday is full of joy!!

KEEP SMILING!!
