Extend An Invitation To Share In Your Bounty
giving thanks for what we have by giving
What started as a harvest festival within the original 13 colonies of the United States , Thanksgiving has morphed into a holiday to express gratitude and thanks for what we have and to share our table with friends and family. This has been a tough year for some of us. If we take a good look around it is easy to see that there are a lot of us that are doing without in an effort just to make ends meet. Extending an invitation to those who may not have enough to eat and to share in our bounty can be rewarding. It is satisfying not just to the beneficiary of a good meal but to the host as well. It always feels good to do good. But, we do not expect you to take on the burden alone. From now until Thanksgiving Steviva Brands will share this expense by giving you an instant 20% off both our retail and wholesale pricing.
Simply enter the discount code THANKS while checking out at the Steviva Brands On-line Store.
Feel free to download our low sugar Thanksgiving recipe cards to pass along to friends and family freely.

The Connection with Cholesterol and Children
3 tips to keeping kids healthy
What were once things that we thought to test in adults are now being passed on to children. It seems as though today's kids are not only growing up too fast, but perhaps also growing too wide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 17 percent of children in the USA are currently obese, three times the number a decade ago. With a growing waistline, one now has to worry about what else increases with that, blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol.
The newest guidelines that were endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a child's first cholesterol check be between the ages of 9 and 11, and again between ages 17 and 21. Further recommendations come as no surprise, 30 to 60 minutes of daily physical activity with a diet rich in plant based foods.
Actions speak louder than words, if you have a child in your life, make a point to take care of your body and show him or her how to do the same, with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Here are 3 simple tips to make part of your daily routine:
1. Plan Your Work: We all have busy schedules of work, school, etc, our days are filled with tasks and just like we have a work schedule, make a work out schedule and find someone to hold yourself accountable to. You wouldn't neglect your work, so don't do it with your work out. Decide what is realistic and when you have the energy to do it. We need to work harder on ourselves that we do in our work!
2. Food is Medicine: There is food and then there is junk, there is no junk food! Some say that eating healthy is expensive, well how about paying for pharmaceutical medications in a few years. That adds up to a great cost, not just on your pocket book, but on your well being on all levels. Spend a few more dollars and time taking care of your nutritional needs so you don't pay double later in life.
3. Be Lean and Eat Green: Pretend that you are a person from the Paleolithic times and eat accordingly. Protein in the morning, nuts and fruits for snacks, legumes and green vegetables with lunch and dinner. Tip: if you like salty and crunchy things, try kale chips. Cut up kale into bite size pieces and bake for 10-15minutes with light olive oil and sea salt at 350 degrees.

Good Habits Will Push You To Success
First you make your habits, and then your habits make you.
Break those habits that can break you. Adopt those practices that will become the new habits that will help you achieve the success you desire.
Your habits are a form of exercise. The harder you work at something, the harder it is to quit. The easier it is to do, the harder it is to change.
Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters. You are what you repeatedly do.

Echoes of Happiness
As children, we laugh hundreds of times each day, delighted by the newness of living. When we reach adulthood, however, we tend to not allow ourselves to let go in a good belly laugh. Inviting laughter back into our lives is simply a matter of making the conscious decision to laugh. Though most of us are incited to laugh only when exposed to humor or the unexpected, each of us is capable of laughing at will. A laugh that comes from the belly carries with it the same positive effects whether prompted by a funny joke or consciously willed into existence. When our laughter comes from the core of our being, it permeates every cell in our physical selves, beginning in the center and radiating outward, until we are not merely belly laughing but rather body laughing.
Laughter has been a part of the human mode of expression since before evolution granted us the art of speech. Through it, we connected with allies while demonstrating our connection with people we didn’t know. In the present, laughter allows us to enjoy positive shared experiences with strangers and loved ones alike. Yet solitary laughter carries with it its own slew of benefits. An energetic and enthusiastic bout of whole-body laughter exercises the muscles, the lungs, and the mind in equal measure, leaving us feeling relaxed and content. When we laugh heartily at life’s ridiculousness instead of responding irritably, our focus shifts. Anger, stress, guilt, and sadness no longer wield any influence over us, and we are empowered to make light of what we originally feared. Laughter also opens our hearts, letting love and light in, changing our perspective, and enabling us to fix our attention on what is positive in our lives.
It is easy to laugh when we feel good, but it is when the world appears dim that we most need laughter in our lives. Our laughter then resonates through our hearts, filling the empty spaces with pure, unadulterated joy. We regain our footing in the moment and remember that no sorrow is powerful enough to rob us of our inborn happiness. When we understand that uninhibited laughter is the food of the soul, nourishing us from within, we know instinctively that life is worthwhile.
