Twin Peaks San Francisco: The Most Amazing And Best View Above The Bay Area.

The first time that I went it was foggy in San Francisco (which it most often is) and yet it was still a sight to see.

The next time it was dark and the city lights looked like an electrical grid.

Thereafter, it would always be during the day as you can see here.

– On vacation or even if you live in the Bay Area GO and enjoy the view.

Building A Healthy Relationship With Yourself

How kind are you to YOU? It’s ok to think positive things about yourself. Think of it as communicating with yourself. Kindness towards yourself matters.

How kind are you to YOU? Serious question. With our many thoughts that pass through our minds throughout the day, every day, sometimes we don’t consider how and what we think about ourselves. For those who have children, you may notice how well their behavior is based upon how you talk to them. I have witnessed parents who don’t talk nicely to their children, and the child repeats the actions that their parents have yelled at them not to do. I have also seen the difference in parents who do not yell and take their personal frustrations out on their children, and the child’s behavior reflects the parents actions.

I am not saying that this is how it is with every household, this is just what I have observed with strangers, friends and family. Kindness does matter. Kindness towards yourself matters.

Often when we think we don’t stop negative thoughts. They either pass quickly, or we stay focused on them. “I should have done…” “Why didn’t I..” “I wish my life was different…” and other thoughts that are not always healthy.

No one is perfect, and it’s human not to be. But it’s ok to think positive things about yourself. I am not a therapist, but I have seen the change in my thoughts from using the CBT method and workbooks which I will further discuss in another blog. Between workbooks, mantras, etc., you can find a way to think positive about YOU.

“I’m doing great.”

“It feels good to…”

“Let me help myself by resting so I’ll have better energy to do this.”

It changes your outlook in life when you have a better view and opinion of yourself.

I use the “I am” method that I discovered by watching a video on YouTube.

“I am making progress to reach my goal.”

“I am healthy.”

“I am rested.”

And so on. “I am” followed by something positive may not come easy at first but after continuously saying these things I have found myself frowning less, not stressing out as much over little things and not being irritable with my partner, say, if there is a miscommunication.

We watch what we say to others, having a tone of being calm and wanting to be understood without confrontation. Think of it as communicating with yourself. Caring about how you talk to yourself as you do your lover, child, or even your dog.

Enjoy your weekend!

Cool Mist HoMedics Oscillating Humidifier For Allergies

Humidifiers are great to have in the home. Helping with allergies, houseplants, sleeping and so much more! Humidifiers come in both cool and warm air that they emit but doctors have said both work the same.

I have allergies. BAD allergies. When I was around the age 4-5 years old my mother noticed that I was always, what she thought, sick. We went to the doctor and they explained that I had year round allergies. Some may not have heard of this term. As an adult I actually had a woman not believe me when I had really bad allergies one day, and she stated that she had never heard of this term, “year round allergies” and told me that I had a cold. It was rude, but living with my body I knew personally what it was. And, I felt better once I left the environment where I was at.

Now, back to when I initially found out I had allergies. The doctor asked my mother about our home, and after a series of questions it was determined that I had a lot of stuffed animals which I didn’t play with therefore between the fur and collection of dust that contributed to my constant sneezing, watery eyes, ect. My mom quickly got rid of my stuffed animals. The doctor also recommended my mother purchase barrier pillow protectors, which is a plastic cover that goes over your pillowcase before you put the actual pillow case on. By following these recommendations my allergies at home got better.

But, I was also having bad symptoms outside. It was due to grass and pollen. Outside I would experience runny nose, watery eyes if pollen counts are high. Springtime and early summer was the worst. The worst. I once again was taken to the doctor to see what could further help. I was introduced to allergy shots.

As describes: “Allergy shots are a form of treatment called immunotherapy. Each allergy shot contains a tiny amount of the specific substance or substances that trigger your allergic reactions. … Allergy shots contain just enough allergens to stimulate your immune system — but not enough to cause a full-blown allergic reaction.”

Weekly I would go to Kaiser hospital and it would be about 10 shots that I would receive up my arm. They hurt at first then felt like a prick thereafter. I wasn’t bothered as a kid having to go each week because I’d rather go than to feel sick all of the time. The allergy shots ended and I was prescribed Allegra (the brand eventually became an over the counter medicine).

I became older and I would have allergic reactions to cut grass, pollen, and perfume the most. Fragrance reactions would burn my nose. I stopped taking Allegra and would go more of a holistic route such as taking a spoon full of local honey. And drinking herbal teas.

Moving to Las Vegas you are living in the middle of the desert literally. So the air is REALLY dry. When I came here looking for a place my allergies were so bad the first day, and throughout that month that when my eyes watered they would burn and I could not see. I purchased eye drops which saved me, and I faithfully wore sunglasses when I was out.

After actually moving here my body better adjusted, but I would find myself waking out of my sleep coughing. Water would be my go to. Sometimes it would help sometimes it wouldn’t. Spraying tea tree mixed with water would make the are fresh but didn’t stop my coughing. I remembered that my mother also had a humidifier in the house growing up. I purchased one and I was amazed how much better I was during the night. And day. The first one I bought was small and I would have to refill often. I then purchased one that would last up to 48 hours.

As you can see allergies have been something I have always dealt with my entire life. I wanted to share my story in hopes that it will help someone else. I’m no where near as sensitive to things that would bother me when I was younger, sometimes seasonally, but that is rare.

I purchased the HoMedics Oscillating Cool Mist 1-Gallon Ultrasonic Humidifier for $69.99 at Bed Bath And Beyond. Humidifiers come in both cool and warm air that they emit but doctors have said both work the same.

Below is a list of reasons to own a humidifier:

Clears up allergies and sinuses

Faster healing times from a cold, a sinus infection, or the flu

Improves Sleeping

Healthier Houseplants

Vibrant Skin

No more cracked, dry lips

If you have allergies I would strongly suggest trying a humidifier out!

Best Wishes,
