Let Laughter Be Your Medicine:

Have a friends marathon! Laughter can trigger the release of feel-good endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers. In a study people who laughed often had 66 percent lower levels of inflammation and stress levels than people who didn’t laugh much.

Find Serenity with Walnuts:

In a study people who ate about an ounce (roughly 9) of walnuts a day experienced lowered blood pressure response to high stress situations than people who didn’t eat the nuts. Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are also proven to boost brain activity. So get chomping!

Say No To Regrets:

Nobody on their deathbed ever says that they wish they had worked more! Any dying regrets will be that they loved harder, lived fuller and embarked on more adventures. Before getting too down on yourself, remember, your work should be to fund your lifestyle and happiness and not your whole world itself.  If you’re moping because your career plan just ain’t happening, get a grip.  J K Rowling went through hell and back before she became the mega book goddess she is today. Her first being published when she was 32! Fret not girls, there’s always time!

Lift Brain Fog By Sniffing Peppermint:

Research shows that sniffing peppermint helps people feel less fatigued. Mainly because sniffing peppermint stimulates the part of the brain responsible for attention and energy. As a bonus point it can also help suppress your appetite which equals weight loss. Yayyy for peppermint.

Sweet Potato Secret:

This potato is certainly the hero of all potatoes with it’s multitude of benefits. Brimming with vitamin C and beta-carotene this humble potato has benefits that link to white blood cell production, resistance to stress, proper immune functioning and best of all it helps the skin maintain it’s youthful elasticity. Someone pass over the spuds now!

Everything Changes But You (Lie! Everything And Everyone Changes):

Things can change in as little as a day. The problems and life dilemmas making you mope today will guaranteed be different in a week’s time. Maybe you’ll get an unexpected text from an old friend or secret admirer? Maybe you’ll meet someone who makes you see things in a totally new light! Either way, you can worry and worry and worry some more but only time will make things change.

Heal A Wound Faster With Pumpkin Seeds:

Whether from a scraped knee, or surgical cut – reach for pumpkin seeds! The high zinc content promotes healing and helps repair and regenerate tissue faster.

Spice Up Your Life

If you want to spice up your life, add some root, bark and plant derivatives to your diet. Herbs and spices add some pep to any meal, and many come with proven heart healthy benefits and can even ease pain, including post-workout soreness. Some spices to include in your diet: Cayenne Pepper, Ginger, Cinnamon, Fennel, Turmeric and many more.

Granny Vs Sexy

If you prefer granny pants, wear them, they’re healthier for your lady bits!  French knickers and thongs are both linked to cystitis, so before you stock up on that cranberry juice give your granny pants a try! While we at Q love our GP’s (granny pants) we also love looking h.o.t.t, Hot. So throw some moderation in your life. Granny pants during the week and sexy little numbers at the weekend. Sorted!  😉

Reach For The Stars And Stretch

Stretch your way to stronger arms and legs while also reducing muscle tension; enhancing muscular coordination; increasing circulation of the blood to various parts of the body and also increased energy levels.  Also not to mention a toned tight and firm physique. So start stretching nowwww!

Get To Sleep Faster:

Sleep is good. Like really really good! Liv Tyler once said she stayed skinny by getting 12 hours sleep a night. Ok, so 12 hours isn’t always practical, but even 8-9 hours is brilliant.  Bad sleep intake equals spotty skin, carb binges and bish moods, so to keep yourself in check, take a bath before bedtime. Your body temperature will spike in a warm bath or shower, and as you cool down you’ll get drowsy, making it easier to nod off, sleep like a baby and wake up refreshed. Sounds Blissful…ahhhh…

Apple Cider Vinegar Virgin No More:

Apple cider vinegar has long been touted as a miracle cure for pretty much everything, and we are not disagreeing! Its wide-ranging benefits include everything from curing hiccups to alleviating cold symptoms. As an extra treat it also works wonders to help beat the bloat. We need some ACV in our lives since forever.

Boost Your Happiness With Some Sunshine:

Sunlight stimulates the production of serotonin, which can make you happier and more positive. So draw back those curtains and let the sun in!

Social Drama

People’s lives on Social media aren’t real! But we love to believe they are and start comparing our dreary monotony to the wonders of fakeness on Insta and Snapchat 🙁 Here’s a reality check girls! When was the last time you posted something that just looked off and naff to show the potential holes in your life?? Yep,pretty much never! Remember, we are all the same and social media is the best lying tool in the modern world today!

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

Exfoliating is the best thing since sliced bread! Like seriously.  For your skin on it’s own and especially for a tan! Drop any fears that you are scrubbing your tan off. To make your tan long lasting and looking it’s best remember to use an exfoliating glove before having the tan, during it and after!

Meltdown Woes:

Lastly girls, It’s absolutely A-ok to have a meltdown when you know you need to. Even if everything in your life feels perfect to the outside world. You have a great job, a great boyfriend, friends, family, wads of cash $$$, even then, it’s totally fine to have a little cry for no reason. It’s what makes us females!  😉
