Random Acts of Kindness Day

randomkindness_0217In honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day, Friday, February 17, our Genesis PURE™ family wanted to share how we show kindness around the office and in our communities.

We are all about caring for others, and we believe that little gestures of hope and kindness can combine to make a huge difference. It’s our corporate culture.

  • “My random act of kindness today is to give 8 HUGS! Did you know a simple hug releases oxytocin and serotonin levels elevating happiness and lowering loneliness, anger and anxiety? Hugs strengthen the immune system, boost self-esteem, and relax muscles increasing circulation while balancing the nervous system. Hugs are like meditation and laughter.  Everyone needs them and they are free to share!” – Michelle Karr, IBO Compliance
  • “I’m going to purchase something special for a co-worker who is always thinking of others anonymously.” – Lisa Puskarich, Human Resources
  • “My wife and I are planning on going to a grocery store and paying for groceries of a woman in line and also handing out a dozen roses to 12 women.” – Daren Hogge, CEO
  • “I will compliment a co-worker on what an awesome job they do every day and how much I enjoy working with them.” – Susan Betts, IBO Success
  • “I witnessed kindness over the weekend when a young man, probably no older than 21, offered to help an elderly couple put groceries in their car.  It brought true joy to my heart.” – Megan Maxwell, Marketing Manager
  • “I would take someone out to lunch (or dinner), or if I was fully unpacked from my move, I would cook and provide lunch for everyone.”  – Janeth Alvarez, Quality Control
  • “While driving, my daughter and I saw a father and young son panhandling. Though this generally has a negative connotation, there are people who are genuinely hurting. My daughter and I decided to make ‘gift bags’ for those we see in need. They each contain a bottle of water, various toiletries, and a few snacks that won’t spoil. We fill gallon-size food-storage bags that will prevent spills and can be reused!” – Lucette Campbell, Graphic Designer
  • “I was the recipient of an act of kindness while I was in line at a fast-food restaurant. When I got to the window to pay, the cashier said that the person who had been in front of me had paid for my order. I was so grateful that it prompted me to pay for the person behind me. The feeling was contagious and the act has stuck with me.” – Jennifer Evans, Marketing Copywriter
  • “Acknowledging jobs well done. Offering words of affirmation and hugs.  Providing lotions and soaps in the ladies room and special snacks in the break room. Providing catered lunches.” – Laurie Shaw, Human Resource Manager

Of course, we may not be able to help everyone, but we can be kind to everyone!

How are you showing random acts of kindness with the people around you? Share with us!

Winter and weight loss go hand in hand

exercisewinter_0217Weight loss in the winter may seem like a misstatement. After all, hearty casseroles and stews always hit the spot as you warm your toes by the fire. But winter can be an ideal time to shed extra pounds when you exercise and make Whole Health part of your lifestyle.

Let the temperatures do the training

Get outside and play in the snow. You may be tempted to stay indoors to exercise on your stationary bike, but exercising in the cold can jump-start your metabolism which causes your body to burn more calories. Run or walk in the afternoon, being cautious of wet and icy patches. Studies have shown that we expend five times more energy when shivering, compared to when we are resting.1

Benefits to exercising outside during the winter

  • You’ll burn more calories. As the body works harder to regulate its core temperature, you’ll burn more calories during your wintry workout compared to exercising indoors.
  • You’ll make your heart muscle stronger. Cold weather makes the heart work harder which isn’t necessarily good for someone with heart trouble. But, regular exercise in colder weather can make the heart stronger, better preparing the body for more strenuous workouts in the future.
  • You’ll drink more water. You can still get dehydrated in the wintertime, so drink plenty of water before, during and after your workout. You may not feel it, but you still sweat when it’s cold outside; it just evaporates quicker in dry, chilly air.
  • You’ll get your vitamin D. Yes, even in the wintertime. But remember, too, that you still need to apply sunscreen.
  • You’ll feel more energized. Cold air is stimulating and can boost your mood. As the body works harder to stay warm, the amount of endorphins increases.
  • You’ll lessen your chances of the winter blues. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) may be caused by lack of sun, activity and proper nutrition.3

Fuel your fire with Rally28. The expert-approved, 28-day program works and will keep you going strong right into spring. Replace that hot chocolate with a fresh cup of PURE Café. You’ll suppress your appetite so you can limit the amount of calories you are eating throughout the day.

Dress appropriately. Wear water-resistant clothes and dress in layers so you can take pieces off as you get hot. Your body loses a lot of heat from your head, so a hat is a must, as are gloves. If you are into winter sports, cross-country skiing and ice skating burn the most calories.2

This infographic lists calories burned by Olympic winter sports activities. Find a friend or neighbor to run or walk with and be sure to create a goal. For instance, commit to 20 minutes of exercise three times a week. Use an app on your phone. There are many fitness apps, from calorie counters, to distance trackers, and more.

Make exercise a priority in the winter so you stay fit and healthy year ‘round. Always talk with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program. You need to make sure the exercise you choose is safe for you.

Q: Someone told me that all B vitamins have to be taken together and work together to be effective. Is that true?

A: Vitamin B complex is a group of eight different B vitamins: Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Choline (B4) Pantothenic acid (B5), B6, Biotin (B7), Folate (B9), and B12. You do not need to take them together; however, doing so might offer some advantages. If your diet includes meat, fish or shellfish, milk, and other dairy products, you should be able to meet the recommended daily B-vitamin requirements. Genesis PURE products that contain Vitamin B include Daily Build (9 B vitamins), E2, ENERGY (7 B vitamins), PURE Café, 360 Complete Shake, RECOVERY, Fusion, HYDRATION and PRO-ARGININE. You can find more information on B vitamins here: https://medlineplus.gov/bvitamins.html.

Q: I saw on the website that some of the essential oils require refrigeration after opening.  Is this necessary or is it okay to store in a cool, dry place?

A: The best place to store essential oils is in a cool place. For most oils, refrigeration is not necessary but can’t hurt. Prolonged exposure to sunlight and extreme heat can change the chemical composition and evaporation rate—and, therefore, the efficacy—of even the purest essential oils. Therefore, avoid keeping your oils in the car, near windows, or next to any heat source for extended periods of time.

Q: I was told when I joined Genesis PURE that residual income could be inherited by your family. Is this true and if so how does someone set it up?

A: In the case of an IBOs death, IBO rights will be transferred to the legal successor in accordance with applicable laws. It is the responsibility of the successors to notify the Company in a timely manner of the death through a letter written to the Company by the executor of the estate or next of kin.  A certified court order and death certificate must be submitted to the Company for the IBO account to be transferred to the legal successor. Successors in interest must comply with current IBO Agreement requirements and the IBO Policies and Procedures. If the legal successor wishes to terminate the account, a written, signed statement of request to terminate must be submitted along with appropriate legal proof of death. If the successor is already an IBO, he/she may in this instance, keep both positions. No administrative fee is required to transfer an IBO account in this instance.

Healthy change is within reach

thumbnailIt’s a lot easier than you might think…that is, participating in Rally28. We hear about what we “should” be doing in order to manage our weight, but in this hectic world it’s nice to know that there are things we don’t have to do. Phew, right?

And, guess what? It’s a short list.

You don’t need to give up your favorite foods. The Rally28 system allows one cheat day per week when you can eat whatever you like. Enjoy your favorites butfav_foods_vegpizza switch it up. Have a burger but make it a turkey burger and skip the mayo. Enjoy pizza but make it a thin crust and add some veggies. Have a sweet snack but make it a frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. What you don’t want is six cheat days and only one day of proper nutrition; it won’t make your cheat day quite as exciting, and you won’t form those good habits.

You don’t have to go without sweets. Reread number one. Go ahead and cheatday_sweetsenjoy your favorite candy bar on your cheat day if you want to. No one is judging. And it won’t set you back if you follow the program correctly on the others days. Besides, you deserve the reward.

 

You don’t need to join a fancy gym. It’s not necessary, if you don’t want to. That applies to the personal trainer, too. You can do it all by yourself. Take a walk_dog_nogymbrisk walk, do some pushups and planks in your living room, or take a bike ride. Just remember that whatever the activity, consistency is key.

 

Say no-no to the yo-yo. Forget the diets, they just don’t work. Strugglnoyoyodietsing with repetitive losses and gains is for the birds. No more! With the Rally28 system, you will learn how to eat and exercise correctly, for results that last.

 

You don’t have to starve yourself. When you do, the body panics and retains every last calorie it can, storing them as fat cells. Your energy levels drop, too. With the Rally28 system, you’ll enjoy eating a lot of whole, natural, healthy foods that are delicious! You may find that after your firdontstarvest couple of cheat days, the cheat isn’t quite as exciting. But it is ok to have a cheat day a week with six days of staying on target. The trouble is when we have six cheat days and one day of proper nutrition.

 

You don’t have to live on salad alone. Unless, of course, you want to. Don’t get me wrong, salads are delicious, they are rich in fiber, are tasty, and easy saladto make. But you will deprive your body of the essential nutrients you need to feel and look your best. You need protein in your diet to provide amino acids, which your body uses to maintain healthy tissues, to boost your immune system and to help transport oxygen via your blood.

You don’t have to measure everything. Portion size is important but as you follow the Rally28 system, you will lmeasure_foodearn to recognize how large a cup is (the size of your fist). This will become routine and you’ll find that you don’t need to weigh your food every time.

You don’t have to feel ashamed anymore. We’re all in this together. It noexcusesdoesn’t matter if you’ve failed in the past. It doesn’t matter if your goal is to lose weight, eat healthier, or exercise more. No more excuses. Rally28 is easy, anyone can do it and you have tons of support. There’s a community of like-minded people who are just waiting to inspire and motivate.

You don’t have to suffer with insomnia. Whenmorningenergy you start Rally28, you will begin to feel more energy which, believe it or not, will help you sleep like a baby. A brisk 30-minute walk every day can make a big difference.

 

You don’t have to deal with low energy. You know that rundown, I-don’t-want-to-get-out-of-bed-in-the-morninr28_communityg feeling? Well, say goodbye to that because once you start Rally28, you’ll be revved and ready to conquer the world.

 

You deserve the best. Don’t think of making a change as something you need. More importantly, living a life of Whole Health is something you truly deserve. Your body deserve the best food, your body deserves to be active, your body deserves Rally28!

Get ready to rally!

Rally28 is a lifestyle, not a diet. During the 28-day program, participants consume products daily, eat small portions throughout the day, and are encouraged to exercise, drink plenty of water, and get adequate sleep. Participants also receive support from a community of ‘ralliers’ around the world, along with access to helpful resources, including a meal planner, recipes, a customized journal, and more.

Take a turn, get results. Order your Rally28 system today!
