Want to be healthier and happier?

Want to feel better? 

Celebrate "Hug a Friend Day" on April 26, then keep up the habit all year long.  

Why, because if you start a hugging habit, you'll boost your health.

A study at the University of North Carolina found that when you are involved in a hug lasting for at least 20 seconds your body releases a hormone called oxytocin, and the health benefits are significant.

A good hug can:

  • ·       Lower your blood pressure
  • ·       Lower your heart rate
  • ·       Reduce your level of stress hormones
  • ·       Improve your mood

You get positive, non-toxic, absolutely free hormone therapy with a simple 20 second hug.

If something is holding you back from reaching out to others in this way, Dr. Bach's flower remedies can help.

Any number of emotional states can be coming between you and the people you love – or like so well that you'd gladly give them a hug.

Visit FeelBach! today and take the questionnaire. Then start correcting those energy imbalances so you can enjoy health-giving hugs!

If you think life isn't fair… use Dr. Bach's remedies and get over it!

When we hear children screaming "No fair!" we tell them that all things aren't fair, so get over it. When we hear adults muttering "That just isn't fair," we say nothing. Instead, we tend to avoid them.

If you've been feeling that other people are getting all the breaks and that life just isn't fair, it might be time to pull yourself up and realize that it's your own attitude that's preventing you from getting "the breaks."

The fact is, those who are in a continual "it isn't fair" state tend to become more embittered over time. Friends who tried to be supportive gradually drop away, leaving him or her in isolation. With every new complaint, life becomes worse and worse, because the Law of Attraction dictates that we simply get more of what we think about each day.

When negativity has become a long-engrained habit, it isn't easy to switch. It takes a bit of discipline. Fortunately, Dr. Bach's Willow flower essence can help. Willow will realign your energies and allow you to listen and work with your Higher Self.

It will allow you to take responsibility for your own outcomes – knowing that they come from within. It will allow you to train yourself to replace a negative thought with a positive thought.

With awareness, effort, and help from FeelBach! flower remedies, you can take charge of your life and once again become the master of your destiny.

Come here to read more about Willow – and begin your transformation today.

Why is everyone Irish on St. Patrick's Day?

We think... because it's fun. 

We all like to have a break in routines and an excuse to be just a bit silly. Maybe we secretly hope to find a 4-leaf clover among the shamrocks and bring ultimate good luck into our lives. 

Maybe deep down we all want the freedom to be that bratty grade school child who runs around
pinching people. 

Most of us know someone who will give us a pinch if we're not wearing green on March 17 - but how did that get started? There's an old story that says Leprechauns like to pinch (bratty school kids!) but if you're wearing green, they can't see you - so won't pinch you. 

Whatever the reason - if there's a parade in your city, go and enjoy it. And if you like beer - stop in a pub and have a glass of green beer. 

Meanwhile, here's our wish for you...

May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

When a child REALLY doesn't want to go to school…

Some kids just don't enjoy school. They are bored by the subjects, sometimes because they don't challenge them, they don't enjoy the company of the other children, and they simply don't like the teacher. Or – they're the type who will in adulthood be found in a physical, outdoor job because they can't stand being stuck indoors.

But what about kids who once enjoyed school and now don't want to go back?

The problem could stem from some setback in class – perhaps an embarrassment over a mistake. I recall being a child and unable to correctly pronounce words in French. Other students made fun of me and I let their ridicule prevent me from speaking it at all – so I never learned even what little would have been learned in a 3rd grade classroom. 

Children obviously do need to go to school – or have a parent who can stay home and provide home study. So how can you make it less painful for them?

Treat them with the flower essence Gentian.

Gentian is Dr. Bach's answer to skepticism, doubt, pessimism, and discouragement. It can help the child regain his optimism and his faith and confidence in being able to master his lessons – and to rise above the occasion when he does make a mistake.

After treatment, your child might realize that obstacles and mistakes are nothing more than opportunities to learn what you don't know – so you can increase your knowledge.
