4 Types of Planners and Journals and Why You Need Them

Are you a keeper of journals?

Notice I didn't say hoarder. Giggle!  After you get started journaling it starts to become a habit and you want to do more and more in every area of your life.

How To Get Started

1. Pick an area of your life that you need to work on or make better.  In this video I started with a food diary.  Everyone has some sort of health issue that they need to work on pertaining to food.

Whether you need to lose weight or gain (like me) you should keep a food log.

If you have food sensitivities or allergies (again like me) then you should be on a four day rotation diet to minimize the reactions.  I also did the 21 day elimination diet to start me off.  I was easy to do.  Then I found a doctor that specializes in gut health and he guided me even more on how to heal the gut with food.

2.  Now that you've picked out a food diary book you need to map out a weekly menu to follow.

3.  List breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Snacks if you need them.  If not leave them out.  You should only be drinking water or herbal teas.  No coffee or caffeine.  Especially if you have heart burn or GERD.

4.  Try to add as many organic foods to your menu as possible.  Why put chemicals into your body that your poor liver has to process.  They only add to your health problems in the long run.  Even if you are a young person you need to start good eating habits by choosing organic foods now and save yourself a lot of suffering later.

5.  Try not to eat out.  I know, many of you love to have someone else weight on you.  But, restaurant foods are loaded with all the bad things that cause your health issues to get worse.  Like high in salt, sugar, fat and calories.

6.  Monitor how you feel after 30 days of keeping a record of what you eat.  When you start to notice a certain food causes unpleasant side effects cut it out for 3 months.  Then add it back in and see what happens.

Be sure to Subscribe to my YouTube channel and give this video a thumbs up.  It really helps my channel to grow.

If you'd like to help support my channel head on over to my Etsy shop, Markets Of Sunshine and pick up one of my handmade cute journals and travel albums.  They are great for budgeting and keeping track of your food journey.

Sending You Sunshine,

1000 Subscribers On YouTube Giveaway Contest

Why use a boring paper clip when you can jazz up your pages with something decorative and cute, like this adorable tea pot bookmark made from an ordinary paper clip.  Can you tell?

I made a goal for the new year of 2020 to reach 1000 subscribers on my YouTube channel.

So, I'm making a video every other day featuring items in my Etsy shop, Markets Of Sunshine.

I hope you will subscribe to my channel and help me reach my goal quicker.  When I do reach 1000 subscribers I will do a giveaway here on my blog with a gift set of goodies from my shop valued at $100.00 and it will be open to all subscribers worldwide!

In order for me to reach my goal I'll need some help getting the word out.  If you would be so kind and share this post using the social media buttons.  Or, just copy and paste the link on to your social media page.

Feel free to browse my Etsy shop and leave a comment below with your favorite item or items and I'll be sure to include something from that product line in the giveaway collection.  Who knows you might just be the winner.

Why is reaching 1000 subscribers so important to me in 2020?  Well, I'll tell you the truth.  It's getting harder and harder to reach people and get them to my Etsy shop.  When folks see my items in person they drool and buy something on the spot.

But, looking at a picture just doesn't give you the hands on experience like a video does.  So, making a video of each of my products gives you a live presentation and is almost like seeing it in person.

If you are a customer and already know how much you love my products could you do me a huge favor and leave a comment below sharing your feelings?

I know my 5 star feedback rating in my Etsy shop speaks volumes too.  But, it would be really nice to hear from you here on my blog too.

Thanks so much for your wonderful support to my small handmade business.

Sending You Sunshine,
