You may know someone who has cancer and wonder what you can do. I have found that many people are not sure what to say or do to help. One of the best things you can do is to be there for them. One thing I really find helpful is just something as simple as a hug. Many times I feel alone and all I want is to know that someone cares. Sometimes a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk to is nice. It’s a lonely long journey we are on.

My family lives in Wisconsin and I am in Oregon so my family can’t just stop by and drop off dinner or help me clean. If those are things you can do they would mean the world to someone. A friend from back home had arranged for a group of people to send me small gifts in the mail. It was such a nice surprise; and I didn’t even know the all the ladies. The gifts included Grub Hub gift cards, some hats, gift cards and other treats.

One thing I have found that I really treasure are text and emails letting me know that someone cares and is thinking and praying for me. It doesn’t cost you anything and makes my day.

Hugs and prayers to all of you going through this rough road. I am here if you need to talk!

Turmeric is one of nature’s best kept secrets. What is turmeric?
Turmeric is a super spice that contains curcuminoids which provide healthy inflammation response and antioxidant benefits.

Rex has arthritis which is the most common joint disorder in the United States. He often wakes up in pain and does not always want to take pain killers. After doing some research we found that turmeric is a often used in Ayurvedic medicine. We decided to give it a try after checking with our doctor first to make sure it won’t interact with medications Rex was already taking.

We found Youtheory had a extra strength formula and wanted to give it a try. Rex takes two capsules a day. He has found after taking for a couple weeks he does get some relief.

What makes Youtheory Turmeric special is the Curcumin c3 complex which is 20x more absorbable than ordinary turmeric. This makes for better effectiveness and efficiency!

We believe in Youtheory. Founded in 2010 by Darren and Patty Rude, Youtheory is one of the original collagen supplement brands. Today, they have grown into one of the largest manufacturers of collagen and turmeric in the U.S. You can find the product Rex takes HERE .

Sometimes we all get in a bit of a slump in life, and that there are so few things to look forward to. And when it gets to the point that it’s your partner’s birthday and that is the most exciting time of the year, this is when you need to start thinking precisely what to do to shake your life up. We all get bored, and if you are reading this suffering from a bit of modern malaise, let’s get you up and out of this!
Play More
We get so serious as we age, but what would the eight-year-old version of you say? Sometimes we get bored with life because we just don’t have fun anymore. So go, have fun, enjoy something for once! And while it may look a bit untowards to climb in a kiddies ball pool, do something different that’s more in keeping with the social constraints of life. They are adventure holiday packages that travel firms like G Adventures provide where you can go explore mountainous regions of foreign countries and truly get to grips with what nature has in store. Doing something new and exciting is going to feed into your sense of play and fun.
What Have You Always Wanted To Do?
As adults, we build up our regrets like dust accumulates on our window sills. What have you really wanted to do in life that you never had the opportunity to do? Some people want to go see the sunrise in Shanghai, others just want to go skydiving, and others just want to go pole dancing! If you are that bored with life, there’s so much outside your dust-accumulated window that you can do, so there’s no excuse to be bored, ever!
Learn Something New
An instrument, a language, a skill… If you find yourself talking about the same old things with your friends when you go out, it’s time to make conversation a bit more interesting, but make life more interesting for you. New skills appear to be merely a resume-bolstering exercise these days, but do something for you. You get added bonus points that learning new things is the way to keep your brain young.
We get older, we get more serious, we display concerns about the electricity bill and the state of the world. It could be argued there’s a lot less to laugh about these days, and many would be inclined to agree with you. Instead, take the Doctor Hibbert approach and find reasons to laugh. Whether it’s something funny on Netflix, get on youtube, or even go to one of the many stand up comedy clubs near you. Laughing is good for you, it releases feel-good hormones, and if you haven’t laughed properly for a while, you will feel instantly better for it!
You’re not alone, we all feel that creeping sense of boredom in life. But it’s you that needs to do something about it, so go on an adventure, have a laugh, do what you know inherently makes you happy. Because that’s why you’re bored, it’s because you’re not happy!
