Your Shopping Annuity Fund

The Holiday Season is upon us. Do you know that an estimated $640 Billion $$ will be spent during the holidays. The question is DO YOU WANT A PIECE OF IT?? Did you also know that Black Friday sales has gone down while Cyber Monday and online sales has sky rocketed upwards!

Why is that? The current trend is shopping online and the internet isn’t going anywhere but up. For the Entrepreneur and savvy shopper who takes full advantage of this Pardon shift, there is money to be saved and earned.

What if I could show you how to

1) Save money on your shopping and NEVER pay full retail again

2) Earn Cash Back on products you buy every month

3) Start your own Shopping Annuity Fund


What is a Shopping Annuity Fund you ask?? Annuity by definition:

An annuity is any continuing payment with a fixed total annual amount. Annuity may refer to:

So would it make sense if you could feed your own Shopping Annuity by transferring your shopping habits?? Of course it would right?

If you could own an Amazon….would you? That would be great but unfortunately Amazon does not pay into your Shopping Annuity.

How did I set up my personal Shopping Annuity Fund and pay myself for all the shopping I do anyway to keep my home going? I bought a online franchise. Look at the link on my site “Shopping Annuity Fund” and you can read all the details on stating your own shopping annuity. Not only can you earn income on your own shopping but also all the internet traffic on a daily basis as well as Cyber Monday shoppers.

Why would you consider this? Because It Just Makes Sense.



Immunity Boosting

Did you ever give thought to why you are the only one in the office who keeps catching the same cold, fever and flu even when you are careful about your hygiene? Your immune system is very complex and made up of various organs, tissues and cells. Besides for your skin, your immune system is a first defender to keep the bad bacteria (germs) out. That being said, we need to pay special attention to taking care of it all year-long.

There are certain habits and activities that can boost or breakdown your immunity.

1) Making Healthy Choices: Choosing foods that are packed with nutrients is key. Adding brightly colored fruit and vegetables such as Red peppers, Broccoli, Strawberries, Blueberries and Kale will give you a boost. Stay away from processed food, sugar and trans fats. I realize holiday time is upon us so splurge a little but not every day. Making the wrong choices can weaken your immunity resulting in a miserable winter.

2) De-Stress: I understand we all have stress, especially if you are a parent. But chronic stress can wreak havoc on your immune system as well as encourage belly fat to be a permanent fixture. While your body is under stress cortisol is released and can impact your immune system in a negative way increasing your chances of getting sick.

3) Sleep longer: How much sleep you need varies for each individual. A good start would be 8 hours a night. As you sleep your body recharges giving it a chance to build immunity back up. Usually if you are sick added sleep is a necessity. I also noticed when I get more sleep my face looks younger. (Very important to me)

4) Supplement daily: Adding these supplements can really make a difference in the quest for good immunity and general health.

Vitamin C
Promotes optimal immune functions
Provides antioxidant protection
Promotes normal regulation of heart functions
Promotes cognitive health
Reduces the inflammatory response
Promotes skeleton, muscle and skin health
Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels

Vitamin D3 with K2
Promotes normal bone mineral density
Promotes healthy arteries
Supports immune health
Helps maintain bone health
Helps maintain bone mass by supporting normal osteoclast activity
Helps maintain cardiovascular health
Promotes elasticity of blood vessels
Helps maintain normal blood pressure
Women with low bone density have been found to be deficient in vitamin K

Derived from Coneflowers, Echinacea is said to activate immune cells

Elderberry found in the supplement Isotonix Immune:
Boosts the body’s natural immune response
Clinical trials have shown that Wellmune® promotes a healthy immune system
Promotes beneficial activity of macrophages, T cells and natural killer cells, which engulf and destroy – pathogens and foreign matter
Promotes healthy energy levels and vitality
Improves mental clarity

My family and I all take the isotonix immune and Isotonix OPC-3. You can read about them under the tab – “Nutrition for Life”

Exercise often:
Adding fitness into your daily routine is so important to keeping your immune system healthy. Your body was meant to move… keep it moving. Exercise improves your mood, your metabolic rate and is De-stressing! All of these will help with immunity. Take a brisk walk after meals. This will help move along your digestive tract.
