Some people think they have to spend hours at the gym sweat- ing on the treadmill or elliptical trainer in order to burn calories and lose weight. As it turns out, the things you do every single day could be burning more calories than you realized. Some discipline with your diet and certain healthy habits can make the difference for those attempting to lose weight. Getting eight hours of sleep can burn more than 300 calories for the average person. But there’s a good chance you are inter- ested in what activities you can do while awake to help burn calories.
Courtesy of Discovery Health and Harvard Medical School, here are common everyday activities and how many calories can be burned depending on weight. These figures are based on a person weighing around 150 pounds and a duration of one hour of activity.
* Supermarket shopping: Pushing a wagon around the super- market for an hour can burn 240 calories or more. Up the ante by bagging groceries yourself and packing and unpacking them from the car. * Raking leaves: If you spent time manually raking leaves this past fall, you were doing something good for your body. In addition to working several muscle groups, you may have spent

Exploring Natural Remedies
As prevalent as prescription medications are, all-natural remedies for common illnesses and conditions are still a viable alternative to prescrip- tion medications for many people. But are these all-natural options safe? In 2011, Apple founder Steve Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. Reports indicate that Jobs, a devout Buddhist, delayed surgery and other traditional treatments for almost a year while he participated in holistic treatments for the cancer. Some of these included juice fasts, bowel cleans- ings, acupuncture, herbal supplements, and even a vegan diet. Eventually, Jobs had surgery, but some experts feel he waited too long. Although conventional care is often an effective means to treating illnesses and other conditions,
there are many doctors who agree that imple- menting natural remedies at times can be safe and effective. Furthermore, not all natural remedies are without merit, and some traditional medicines are actually derived from natural, plant-based ingredi- ents themselves.
According to surgeon and author, Dr. Walter C.
Thompson, “Herbal medicine is safe because it’s natural. After researching the literature, one can truly say that, at the very least, herbal medicine is safer than conventional drugs.” Those thinking about incorporating natural remedies into their health regimen can consider the following options. * Nervousness and anxiety: Try lettuce, chamo-
mile, valerian, and rose petals. * Pain relief:Use omega-3 fatty acids, green tea, ginger root, and tumeric. * Itchiness: Witch hazel, jewelweed and aloe
vera are effective. * Feminine issues: Parsley, basil and goldenseal can alleviate symptoms associated with men- struation. * Antibiotics: Oregano and garlic are purport- ed to have antibiotic qualities and can fend off harmful bacteria.

* Infections: Honey has long been used to heal and as an antibacterial and antifungal remedy. Many natural foods are effective in preventing and fighting cancer as well. Although natural remedies can be effective,
it’s important for pregnant women to avoid any herbs and plant supplements until discussing the risks/benefits with their doctors. Also, some natu- ral remedies can interact with prescription drugs or increase their potency, so it’s important to talk to a doctor about any plans.

Yoga Moms Have Pushed Soccer Moms to the Sidelines
Many women are trading in their team jerseys for yoga mats. The busy soccer mom has transformed into the calm and ethereal yoga mom who is more interest- ed in a stress-free life than racing around to sports practices. For a long time the stereotypical image of a mom was a minivan-driving, white, 40-something picking up Timmy from sports practice and Jenny from cheerlead- ing. Her fast-paced lifestyle had her rac- ing between kids’ engagements to home to other social obligations in a harried, time-pressed manner. But today you’re more likely to see mom practicing her asanas instead of toting clipboards and team snacks. She’s scooting around in her Toyota Prius instead of the Dodge Caravan and is more about living in the moment than over- programming children with music lessons and enrichment classes. Today’s moms are more free-spirited and learn-as-you-go types. They don’t strive for the same goals as their mothers before them. Instead of keeping up with the Joneses and striving for perfection, the Yoga Mom or Eco Mom is customizing her life the way she sees fit. So what else is different about women
of the Yoga Mom mind set? A lot actually. Today’s moms live further from their

Baby Boomer parents, and aren’t as influenced by their go-getter attitudes. As such, Eco Moms are more community- based and interested in being everyone’s friends. That’s why you’re more likely to find Yoga Moms blog- ging, heading grassroots campaigns and seeking new friends on social networking sites. Yoga moms are more about spreading the word on ways to improve the community and planet than receiving the gossip on how to get ahead or the best recipe to bring to the office potluck. Many Yoga moms saw their own mothers struggle with the work- family balance with little success. New moms are more about embrac- ing what’s real and meaningful than being caught up in the rat race. That isn’t to say today’s moms are sitting on the couch catching up
with daytime programming. They are certainly educated, successful women. They’re simply putting their needs on par with the needs of their family and feeling better about themselves in the process.
