Summary

As a result of her own experience with many kind of loss, Stephanie Ericsson offers an intimate, profoundly touching guide for those in grief, legitimizing the complex and often taboo emotions we all feel when loss transforms our lives. In  Companion Through the Darkness, Stephanie Ericsson defines grief as "the constant reawakening that things are now different." Using a very simple format -- which combines excerpts from her own diary writings with brief essays -- she vividly speaks the language of loss and captures the contradictory, wrenching, and chaotic emotions of grief. The book can be opened at any point to chapters no more than a few pages long on such themes as:  
 Abandonment: The sudden state I am forced into. I no longer belong to you. I no longer belong to anyone.  
  Rage: The state I use to survive seemingly moments of intolerable pain.  
  Humor: The backside of agony.  
  Pity: The look on people's faces when they haven't a clue what to say to me.  
  Transition: The moments, strung out over months, when I know I am no longer the woman I was, but not quite the woman I am becoming.  
  The result is compelling, intimate, and heartbreakingly truthful -- a book that promises to be enormously sought-after support and touchstone for all those making their own journey through grief.

    Vinegar, one of the main constituent of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), can be termed ordinarily as a sour-tasting liquid containing acidic elements, obtained by fermenting weaken alcoholic liquids, regular wine, cider, or lager.  
     
    But without any doubt, it is mainly used today in the kitchen as a general cooking ingredient. Howbeit, historically, it has been known as the most effortlessly accessible mild acid, besides that; it has an extraordinary assortment of industrial, medical, and domestic uses.  
     
    Yes, among them are some of which, (for example, a general household chemical) are still being improved upon today. Since, commercial vinegar is produced either by quick or slow fermentation procedures.  
     
    Well, all in all, slow strategies are used with traditional vinegars, and fermentation is made to continue slowly over a span of weeks or months. Along these lines, the longer fermentation time frame would usually be allowed for the accumulation of a nontoxic slime made out of acid producing microorganisms.  
     
    However, quick strategies include mother of the vinegar (i.e. bacterial society) to source liquid as before adding air using the venturi pump system to elevate oxygenation to obtain the speediest fermentation.  
     
    But, I dare say that in quick production arrangements, vinegar might be produced in a period ranging from 20 hours to three days.  
     
    In any case, there are some vinegar health benefits that do have guarantee, in any event according to a couple of studies. Here's are some examples.  
     
    Diabetes: The effect of vinegar on the blood sugar levels is maybe the best inquired about and the most promising of apple cider vinegar's conceivable health benefits. A few studies did found that vinegar may lower glucose levels.  
     
    A 2007 study of some people with the type 2 diabetes observed that having two tablespoons of the apple cider vinegar as before bed time, was found to be lowering the glucose levels as in the morning by 4%-6%.  
     
    High cholesterol: The study also demonstrated that vinegar might lower cholesterol. Nevertheless, let’s not forget the fact that the study was done in rats… so, it's too soon to know how it may work in people.  
     
    That being as it may, there is no over-flogging the fact that Apple Cider Vinegar truly has a lot of beneficial for this generation as it has been to the other couple of previous ones, but more importantly you can find one use or the other for ACV in your home now!  
     
    Now, I urge you to get a copy of this book today and start enjoying all the nutritious health benefits and many other uses of ACV in your home and you will be glad you did.

    Pretty Happy - Healthy Ways to...

    I didn’t just wake up one day understanding how to take care of myself. I had to learn how to do so over time, and I continue to learn—each and every day. This is a process, and my body is constantly changing. So is yours. And when I learned how to accept that I will always be like this, I relaxed. Our bodies do not stand still for time. 
    When you understand yourself and connect to how you can become body smart, you realize pretty quickly that the perfect, the ideal is not the goal. Instead, the goal is feeling good in your body. That’s what leads to confidence, to feeling and looking fit, and being pretty happy. Doesn’t that sound great? I think so!  
    In almost every interview she gives, Kate Hudson is asked the same questions: What do you eat? How do you stay so fit? What workout do you do? What’s your secret? Well, the secret is that the sound bites the media loves so much don’t tell the story, and the steps you need to take to have a healthy, vibrant and happy life can’t be captured in a short interview. The key to living well, and healthy, is to plug into what your body needs, understanding that one size does not fit all, all the time, and being truly honest with yourself about your goals and desires. 
    Like everyone else, Kate is constantly on the move, with a life full of work, family, responsibilities and relationships. In Pretty Happy, Kate shows how she honors her relationship with herself through exercise, making the right choices about what she eats, and constantly going back to the drawing board and starting fresh, instead of holding herself to unrealistic standards of perfection and giving up when she falls short. Focusing on the Four Pillars of Health to enhance her well-being, Pretty Happy shows the benefits of:   Cultivating an Intuitive Relationship With Your Body   Eating Well   Awakening Your Body through movement   The Miracle of Mindfullness 
    Full of questionnaires to help you assess your Body Type and your stress levels, advice about cleanses and keeping your diet and body balanced, and plenty of interactive Drawing Board exercises, Pretty Happy is a beautiful, insightful, and personal look at health from the inside out, an authentic plan for an authentic life from a woman who truly lives what she speaks. 
    “Kate Hudson’s Pretty Happy is a smart, insightful and realistic primer for making healthy habits part of your everyday life. I met Kate in person, and judging by my impression of her, she must be doing things right. From exercise to mindfulness to knowing what your body really needs to thrive, she pushes you to throw away your ideas around perfection and find your own Pretty Happy.”—Alejandro Junger, New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut, and Clean Eats 
    “Though it may seem like sporting that signature winning smile is her natural state of being, Kate Hudson’s path to happiness is an active one. She refuses to wait for happy to happen. Instead, Pretty Happy details all the ways she makes it a priority every day. Honoring our bodies with clean eating and smart cleansing, our minds with meditation, our purpose with authenticity, and our fun with spontaneity, playfulness and pole dancing - yes! - this is a hands-on approach to owning our potential. And if you've ever found yourself wondering how she maintains that famous bod, Kate is spilling the beans on that, too in her trademark best friend-who's-been-there style - lucky us!”—Daphne Oz
