8 Reasons to Drink Alkaline Water by Diane Shawe

The effects of drinking Alkaline water on our body

We’ve all heard that drinking water is good for us and we’re often told to drink around 2 litres a day. But all waters are not equal.

I work with a lot of clients who are experiencing hair loss, low energy, joint aches and pains and even weak nails. I had those same issues until I started to explore the benefits of drinking good quality water. What I mean by this is alkaline water? 

I was reading and watching a lot of healthy eating books and videos by Dr Sebi  and he kept mentioning Alkaline foods and drinks. So I set out to find out how I could drink Alkaline water everyday effortlessly and came across pH Replenish which I will introduce you to later.  However what I  really wanted to do is share the benefit of drinking alkaline water.

So does alkaline water have even more health benefits than regular tap or bottled water?

Firstly, why is drinking all that water so good for us? 

Over half of our body is water! Our cells, organs and bones all need water to function properly. In fact, our brains and hearts are made up of about 70% water.

Although drinking water doesn’t seem very glamorous, if we become dehydrated we can quickly begin to lose concentration and focus, become lethargic and have sugar cravings. In the long term, dehydration can result in organ failure and humans can only survive for 3 or 4 days without water.

pH Replenish water Pitcher

Regular tap water usually has a neutral PH of 7 (although it can be lower) whilst alkaline water has a PH over 7. 

OK, So water is good for us. But what’s the difference between regular water from the tap and alkaline water?

7 is neutral and any lower than 7 is acidic. As an example, corrosive liquids like lemon juice have a PH of around 2.5.

Water usually has a natural PH higher than 7 which comes from the minerals and salts found in the earth. But as the water passes through our man-made pipes and water distribution systems it loses a lot of it’s minerals and as a result the PH levels drop.

The blood in our bodies has a PH around 7.4 and the systems in our bodies work hard to maintain that level. Many alkaline water fans believe that drinking filtered water with a higher PH means that we are giving our bodies a helping hand to keep to that healthy PH of 7.4.

Are there any other advantages to drinking alkaline water? 

1. Reducing acid levels within our bodies

It’s widely believed that drinking alkaline water can help to reduce or balance the acid levels within our bodies.

Having too much acid in our body can result in a long list of issues including fatigue, confusion, joint pain and inflammation, headaches, an elevated heart rate and digestion problems. This ‘acidosis’ occurs when our kidneys cannot remove all the excess acid from our body.

Acid in our body can also strip important minerals like calcium and magnesium from our bones which can lead to diseases like osteoporosis.

Cancer is also known to thrive in acidic environments and struggles to survive in alkaline environments. The opportunity to reduce acid in the body could be a significant benefit of drinking alkaline water for many people.

2. Anti-oxidant effects

Alkaline water is high in anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are great for our body and our overall health. They help us to keep repairing our cells to keep us looking and feeling fit and healthy.

3. Anti-aging

Another benefit that drinking alkaline water can have for our bodies is an anti-ageing effect. A 2016 study on mice which ran for three years suggested that drinking alkaline water increased their life span significantly.

4. A treatment for acid reflux

A report by Dr. Jamie Koufman concluded that alkaline water with a PH of 8.8 can work as an effective treatment for people who suffer from acid reflux. Alkaline water has the ability to neutralise the stomach acid causing this unpleasant disease.

5. Hydration

The molecules in alkaline water are smaller than in our regular tap water. This means that our bodies can absorb alkaline water more easily without that bloated feeling that regular water can sometimes give you.

6. Reducing high blood pressure

One study carried out in Shanghai discovered that drinking alkaline water for 3 to 6 months brought high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high blood lipid levels back to normal.

7. Decreasing blood thickness

A paper Weidman et al found that drinking alkaline water after exercise helps to thin out the blood faster then normal water. This is useful to aid recovery after exercise and could be potentially life saving for individuals suffering from thickened or hardened arteries who want to improve their fitness with less risk.

8. Preventing obesity

Many alkaline water enthusiasts report that it helps with weight loss. Backing up this claim, a 2013 study found that when obese mice drank alkaline water for 7 weeks they lost weight compared with mice drinking regular water but eating the same diet.

The benefits of drinking alkaline water are very promising and many people who drink alkaline water report considerable health benefits. However, many of these studies and reports have only been carried out in labs or on a small scale so it would be nice to see more research demonstrating the many benefits of alkaline water.

Are there any side effects to drinking Alkaline water?

As with anything, if you consume too much there can be negative effects. Although it is extremely unusual, an over consumption of alkaline products could lead to alkalosis. Having too much alkaline in the body can bring on the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. However, if we drink alkaline water alongside a healthy and varied diet we would be very unlikely to experience this effect.

Slowly increasing the amount of alkaline water that we drink allows our bodies to adapt to the increased mineral content and higher PH and reduces the likelihood of any unwanted side effects.

How can I get alkaline water in my own home? 

Installing a water filter is the easiest way for us to access unlimited alkaline water and Invigorated Water offers a variety of alkaline water filter systems to suit every home.

or you could start off with a pouch  https://amzn.to/3DtG5Aa or water pitcher.

Click to buy one today.

Counter top filters for kitchens with plenty of space hold enough water for the entire family. Smaller pitcher filters will fit easily into the fridge door where you can keep them cool. 

Or, our faucet filters are a great option to easily provide alkaline water in your home and are easy to install.

If you are on the go and want to make sure that you have your alkaline water with you, try one of our bottle filters. Not only do they make your water taste better, they also look great.

You can also benefit from using alkaline water in your shower. 

When you shower, water is vaporized into steam which you inhale as you shower. By installing a shower filter such as the PH Rejuvenate shower head filter,  which increases the PH of your water you’ll know that you are breathing in safe, alkaline steam rather than potentially harmful, acidic water.

Showering with alkaline water can also be good for your skin. One study found that applying alkaline water to the sun damaged skin of mice helped to reduce the damage. Alkaline water has an anti-inflammatory effect that was also seen in people bathing in high PH spring water. Many of our customers report that their hair and skin feels noticeably softer and smoother after showering under our shower head filters.

Another advantage of the Invigorated Water filters is that they can remove any unwanted toxins, chemicals and heavy metals from our drinking water whilst adding in healthy minerals like magnesium and calcium. 

Pollutants often work their way into our water supply and can be missed by our government water treatment stations, particularly if our water is carried through old pipes, across long distances.

Increasing the PH of your drinking water to make it alkaline, removing pollutants and adding in the healthy minerals allows your body to thrive. By choosing to drink filtered, alkaline water you are looking after your health in one simple, easy step.

50 Online Local Business Directories to list your Franchise or Business

Even Google Promotes itself!

Promoting a local business opportunity isn’t easy these days.

Whether it’s because of oversaturation or complicated search engine algorithms, it’s all too easy to feel like no one will find your business in the local or national search results.

Luckily, there’s an easy way to improve your local SEO. All you have to do is list your business in online business directories such as Yellow Pages, Manta, and more. This is called building citations, and it’s a critical piece of a local marketing strategy.

What is a business directory?

A business directory is an online list of businesses within a particular niche, location, or category. One way local businesses can get found by online searchers is through inclusion in business directories.

Why you need to get listed in multiple relevant  business directory?

Today, Google is inserting itself between consumer and local business websites much more often. For proof, you need to look no further than Google My Business, Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), featured snippets, and most importantly, local packs.

By building citations, you can make sure that you appear in these local packs when people look for businesses like yours in their area. Business directories may seem like a thing of the past, but they’re a great way to grow your presence online.

You can improve visibility by listing your local business’ NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) on directories, online business listing sites, and citation sites. Aside from improving your local SEO, these can also improve your rankings on search engines because the listings usually link back to your site.

Make sure your company listing has the following information once you add it to a directory:

• Consistent NAP. If you add or update your business on multiple business listing sites, make sure you’re providing the same company information across each directory.

• A link to your website. Backlinks — also known as inbound links — are crucial to your company website’s Domain Rating. Consider adding a tracking link at the end of this URL as well, so you can see how much traffic your website specifically gets from the business directories that are linking to it.

• A company description. Make sure you have a detailed description of your business that reflects your organization’s mission, culture, and values.

• Multimedia. Give company searchers a visual taste of your business with a picture or video of your office, your employees, or your daily business operations.

There are plenty of location-specific and industry-specific business listing sites where you can submit your data. To start promoting your local business, however, you should start with the big sites and work your way toward the more niche directories.

First, let’s go over the top free business directories.

Communication

Good communication actually consists of many different sub-skills, from appropriate patterns of body language and eye contact to the ability to write clear and accurate reports. Accurate listening and the ability to follow instructions are especially important but are often ignored or taken for granted. 

Many people simply do not pay close attention to what others communicate and fail to ask follow-up questions to understand fully. As a result, individuals act on their own inaccurate assumptions and create inefficiencies and frustrations at work. If you can really listen, your work will be a cut above many of your peers.

• Active Listening

• Oral Communication

• Written Communication

• Ability to Follow Instructions

• Investigation

• Attention to Detail

• Negotiation

• Nonverbal Communication

Goal-Setting and Planning

CHECKOUT OUR RANGE OF CPD COURSES

Anybody can wish for something to happen, but to accomplish anything (except by accident), you have to make a plan—which surprisingly few people know how to do. Planning requires setting concrete goals, identifying workable action steps, and making a commitment to see the plan through.

• Commitment

• Delegation

• Time Management

• Critical Thinking

• Analytical Skills

Empathy

https://www.virtualpersonalassistance.com/cpd-courses-store

Being an empathetic individual comes naturally to some, but is less natural to others. Behaving with empathy is more than feeling bad for someone who’s sad, or sharing in someone else’s joy. It means being able to step into someone else’s world to understand not just what their point of view is, but also to understand why they have that point of view.

Your Guided Meditation Will Be More Successful if You Can Visualise In British Pounds Here’s Why

Guided meditation and affirmations with visualised images are very popular on Youtube.

Visualising in British Pounds will help Your Manifestation

Visualisation activates the creative powers of the subconscious mind, motivating it to work harder at creating solutions. If done correctly some people have noticed new levels of motivation and find themselves doing things that normally they would avoid, but that will take them closer to success.

Visualisation and affirmations can help you to change your beliefsassumptions, and opinions about the most important person in your life — YOU! They allow you to harness the 18 billion brain cells in your brain and get them all working in a singular and purposeful direction.

Your subconscious will become engaged in a process that transforms you forever. This happens intensionally or unintensionally because the subconcious mind absorbs everything every waking and sleeping moments of your life.

The process is invisible and doesn’t take a long time. this is why it is important to put in the time to visualise and affirm by practicing your techniques, surround yourself with positive people, read uplifting books and listen to audio programs that flood your mind with positive, life-affirming messages.

Negative Thinking is the Enemy

It is no secret that negative thinking is part of almost everyone’s life.

For some reason, it seems it is easier to think negative thoughts, than to think positive thoughts. The mind and emotions are vast, it is true that people are not taught to think expecially at school, so people tend to flip flop between thoughts and emotions.

Unpleasant situations, problems and difficulties arise in everyone’s lives, and these events cause negative thinking.

Often, people are not very much aware of the thoughts they are thinking, and therefore, get easily immersed with negative thoughts and negative moods when listening to the news or to people talking about their problems.  There is also a tendancy to gossip and gossip is almosy always negative.

It would be a good strategy to avoid negative discussion which can contribute to negative thinking though, in many cases, it is easier said than done.

So for instance when you decide to start some guided meditation there is often 3 choices. a) music only b) verbal affirmations c) visual/images (There is an agruement for silent meditation but this is not guided but may be personally accomplished privately or in a group)

a) Music:  Often people will select a piece of music that either calms them, inspire or motivates them. If the music you come across grates on your nerves then it is unlikely that you will consider listening to it.

b) Verbal Affirmations: Words Matter and if the words you are hearing sound unbelievable then your subconcious mind and your inner self talk will start a negative debate about what you are listening too.  So it is important that the verbal affirmation you select empowers your inner self, does not cause resistance or sounds unachievable.

c) Visual Images: Most of you would have heard the term ‘Create a vision board’ the purpose being to solidify the visual image into your subconcious mind everyday reinforcing your desires, dream or wish to come true. There are lots of Guided meditation videos on Youtube and the stats show that a high percentage of guided money meditations are listened to each day around the world.

Do you need help with getting more appointments or leads?

However if you are british or european and your watching a guided money  meditation in dollars there is instantly a conflict because the image does not fit your currency reality.

You will succeed in neutralising your efforts if you think  positively about your goal for a few minutes, and have doubts or think about them negatively the rest of the day. So it is important to match your money mantra meditation with the currency you predominatly use every day, otherwise this is poor investment of your time, and is one of the main reasons why you are not getting results.

Meaningful Guided Meditation

Guided Meditation, Visualisation and Miracle Tones stimulate positivity which  are essential components to focusing your intentions in a quiet moment to bring about change, bring you clients, bring you business, cashflow and business growth.

No matter your business, startup, not for profit, online business or charity, taking time out to clear your mind and focus on what you want to achieve with a clear vision can be very enlightening.

The brain is still a membrain that needs rest, need oxygen and the right minerals to support it.  There is also lots of evidence to support that certain tones when listened to can stimulate deep into the brain. In this Guided Money Meditation, affirmations are powerful wrapped into the solfeggio tones and biennial beats with wads of british pounds tumbling towards you with a little added surprise.

PLANNING, CONDUCTING AND GETTING RESULTS BY DIANE SHAWE

Pat yourself on the back a little bit more


When it comes to success, are you stuck in the same cycle, or are you ready to move beyond?
Are you ready to move forward – not just a step or two, but a whole level?

Are you ready to leap into a new existence of achievement and power and if so, what does that look like?

Are you ready to leave your old life behind and move right into the life you deserve and if so what would your life looked like?

But if you were so ready, wouldn’t you be there already? Maybe. Maybe not.

Maybe, as much as you long for this dream world, you are also a little scared, a little nervous, or a little
hesitant, you might also be exhausted.

Maybe as much as you say you’re ready, you’re blocking your own way. The good news is, if you’re your own worst enemy, then the only thing standing between you and the life you’ve always imagined is… you!

http://www.virtualpersonalassistance.com/express-business-plan-fundraising. . .

And once you recognise the issues that are holding you back, you can address them, one at a time.
That’s what I hope to help you do in this short blog. I’ll discuss some of the main ways you can achieve
lasting change and progress towards your dreams. It won’t be easy, but it’ll be life-changing – if you are
willing to do the work.

  1. Up” Your Deserve Level
    We can only achieve as much as we think we can.
    Try this little exercise: Stand up and extend your arms out on both sides of your body. Close your
    eyes and, turning at the waist, see how far you can twist to one side without causing yourself bodily
    harm. Open your eyes and make a mental note of where you are pointing behind you. Now, close
    your eyes and imagine yourself going a little farther. Ready, twist! Open your eyes and see if you
    surpassed your previous point. If you’re like most people, you did!

Why didn’t you go further the first time? For the simple reason that you didn’t think you could. Once you
imagined yourself going further, you did. It’s not very complicated!

If you allow others or your mental beliefs to impose limits on your physical stretching, it makes sense that you’lle limit your mental and spiritual achievement, too. So, you need to ask yourself what limits you’re putting on your:
…dreams.

Are you dreaming big enough?


income potential. Are you unnecessarily or purposely limiting your income or salary?
relationships. Do you doubt what you can achieve or deserve in your friendships and family life?
physical health.

Are you accepting less or making excuses other than the best because you think you’re too old or too outof shape?

The first step to changing your boundaries is to “up” your deserve level.

Here are three things that block you from accepting that you deserve the best:


1. Envy.

Envy is the result of a scarcity or lack mindset. You think that if someone else gets something – a
great job, a new car, a book deal – that you can’t have it, too.

That is not the way the universe works. Just because someone else gets something doesn’t mean no one else can’t as well. even Angelina Jones has been married more than once! Realise that whatever anyone else in this world has – from a great career to a great family to a great body – you can have it, too.

Live your life to the full

Use their example to inspire, rather than depress you.

2. Fear.

Fear is one of the greatest demotivators. It’s hard to feel limitless and powerful when you’re shaking in your shoes! It’s natural to feel scared of breaking outside your normal boundaries, but remind yourself that all growth takes place outside your comfort zone.

To grow, you must push your own limits, by definition. get comfortable with discomfort – see it as a sign of growth, much like aching muscles indicate you worked out hard and are getting stronger and leaner.

3. Laziness.

We tend to get used to where we are and decide that it’s good enough because we don’t really want to have to work harder. Time for a harsh truth: There are different types of laziness such as mental, emotional, physical and spiritual liziness.

If you want an extraordinary life, you’re going to have to go to some out-of-the-ordinary measures. That means pushing yourself, challenging yourself, coaching yourself, whatever it takes to motivate you to move beyond
“average.” Not that there is anything wrong with average.

Moving upward and onward starts with believing you deserve to have more and be more. It’s essential to
own your dreams – and dream big, But it’s also imperative to live in the now and appreciate each experience, each gift and your blessings.

Allow No Excuses

In the immortal words of one of the greatest philosophers of our generation:

Do or Do Not: There is no Try.

Yoda

Your body doesn’t care that you were going to eat the right foods and go to the gym, but it was your
birthday.

Your social media agent doesn’t care that you were going to finish that last chapter, but you was just too exhausted.

You do it, or you don’t. There are no points to trying. Once you accept that, you can move out of the victim
mentality you begin to realise that it really is all up to you!

The other thing you can be sure of is that 99.9 percent of people don’t really care if you succeed or not.

Whether you finish your novel, run the triathlon, start your business or your still holding onto a grudge – they’re going on about their life, without much regard to you and your goals.

It’s All up to you

What it really comes down to is that it’s all up to you, and it’s all about you. That’s a little scary, but it’s
also very empowering. That means once you make up your mind, no one can hold you back.

How I increased my blog followers by 1000 in 2 months after having a blog for 18 years!

article by Diane Shawe Author

There’s more to adding hair

Running a blog requires planning and it’s hard work, but with hard work comes results. I gained 1k blog followers in 2 months, and today I’m going to share some of the steps I took to achieved this. I truly did not expect to gain 1k followers in 2 months, but this is what happens when we have self doubt and don’t take action.

But I was thinking back to when I started blogging in September 2010 it was easier than because blogging was just getting popular. Even though, I still would have really appreciated a post like this. As some sort of motivation and guidance.

If you are here because you think I’m going to give you some secret code that gives you those followers overnight, you are looking in the wrong place. This happened from hard work and dedication and nothing more. It wont happen overnight and it didn’t for me as you can see, I have been blogging a long time. The tips I share are the things I did to make this happen. It’s up to you to take action and put in the hard work to see the results.

CONSISTENCY IS REALLY IMPORTANT

I talk often about consistency, but that’s because I want to stress how important it is. Having a blogging schedule and sticking to it something that helped me to see my audience grow. I post anywhere from five, six or seven times a week. Thats a lot of content. As I said in the intro, its not easy and it wont ever be easy being consistent.

http://www.needahairmakeoverfranchise.co.uk

I constantly feel like I am writing and scheduling content. I will touch on social media a few points down but you should also be consistent with Social media too. Any platform that you can use to spread awareness for your blog you should use. Utilise it if it’s there.

TRY INTERACTING WITH OTHER BLOGGERS

One of the most important things to do if you are part of the blogging community is interaction. You won’t ever grow if you don’t interact and support others. When I first started in 2010 blogging was just getting popular, so getting followers was easier, but with the growth of social media and ‘snippet’ such as twitter attracting followers have become more competitive, so thing such as ‘Tasty Headers’ to attract that click is all the more important. Its a two way street blog writer want new folowers, interesting topics to re-tweet so they can gain more followers also.

Yes, you will get traffic to your site from people other than bloggers but you need that blogging community behind you in order for your blog to be successful.

HOW DOES SOCIAL MEDIA HELP?

Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are the main places where a lot of my social media traffic comes from. Pinterest and TiKTok is another social media platform that is great to gain traffic to your blog. To reach a professional audience Linkedin is also a very good patform.

follow us on twitter

A shoutout for Youtube, if you can get over 1000 followers, you are given a community page were you can post your blog links.

Linking into the point I made about consistency, its just as important to be consistent on your social media pages too.

UPGRADING MY WORDPRESS PLAN

About a 9 month into rebranding my blog I decided to upgrade my WordPress plan to a premium plan. This was probably one of the best things I could have done, it gave me access to be able to add ads onto my blog and it gave me access to premium themes. The premium plan is worth it for people who have just started but want to take their blog further.

I am still decided whether to upgrade to the WordPress business plan. This will allow me to take my blogging to the next level. With the business plan it allows you to download and use plug ins, such as Yoast SEO. Which is a tool that tells you how you can improve your posts to help with google ranking. Which in turn helps with traffic and followers.

Its something you should consider but make sure you can afford it, especially if you are wanting to take your blogging more serious and grow your following.

RELATABLE CONTENT IS KING

An important thing to remember when wanting to grow your following is posting relatable content. Do your research and see what’s going on in the world and what people are searching for, and then blog about it. A lot of the time I write about what I’m going through. I wont necessarily say on the post that its from personal experience or something I am struggling with at the time, but that’s what I do. There are ideas and inspiration all around us.

THERE IS NO PROBLEM IN BROADENING YOUR BLOG NICHE

g.page/needahairmakeover

Being vulnerable goes a long way with readers. They are able to connect with you on such a deeper level if they know you are being open with them.

I’ve had many conversations with other bloggers about this, but I think it’s so important that as bloggers we are also flexible in what we write about. I think it’s so great having a blog niche, but don’t be scared to step out of it every once and a while. Don’t stress about writing something different, you don’t know how your readers will receive it unless you just do it. You will note from my blog that I cover a wide variety of topics.

These are just a few things I have done to grow my following. Please remember that these things worked for me. I hope they help you too!
