Global Easter Traditions You Can Do At Home

Easter Celebrations Around the GlobeEaster is such a wonderful time of chocolate eggs and new beginnings. While kids in the States are happily painting eggs and going on backyard hunts, people around the world are busy smashing pots, slapping sticks, and drenching each other with water. Yes, the famous holiday isn’t all about the Easter bunny, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t just as fun! There is never a shortage of things to do with an egg, as the Latvians know all too well. During this holiday, they play a game of tapping the ends of their colored hard-boiled eggs together until the egg breaks, and the last person standing with an unbroken egg wins. If that sounds amusing to you, wait until you find out what the rest of the world does on this happy hoppin’ holiday!

Starting Fresh This Spring Season

Starting Fresh This Spring SeasonSpring comes as redemption for anyone who wants to begin anew. It’s a breath of fresh air that, when taken in, breathes life into our tired and clammy bones and rejuvenates us for another round of whatever the future has to offer. Spring cleaning and Easter bunnies aside, this season gives us the chance to right our wrongs, forget the past, live in the moment, and start over. It’s like a reset button in life, and here are just three simple ways to take advantage of this golden opportunity.

Starting Fresh This Spring SeasonTake care of yourself. The world we live in today endorses the abuse of our bodies as we struggle to make a living each day. The daily grind forces us to make more and more money, only to be unhappy in the end, losing ourselves in the process.

Keep yourself healthy and fit without weighing yourself down with worries and stress. You can check Zone Diet’s collection of products to see what best fits your new healthy lifestyle.

Keeping Your Vision Smart and Sharp

keeping-vision-smart-and-sharpImagine a world of infinite beauty, of blossoming flowers greeting you each morning, of colors dancing in the garden, the sunset casting a medley of hues blending across the horizon as the day comes to an end. Now, imagine a world where everything is darkness, without a single view in sight. This is a world that most people fear of having, and when you close your eyes, that’s exactly what it feels like.

Our eyes have always been the conduit with which we experience the world around us, and yet, in the busy humdrum of our everyday lives, we often take them for granted. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know how to care for our eyes, so give those orbs a well-deserved break and pamper them just like you would any other part of your body.
