Sweet Natural Tips for Ageless Beauty With Very Little Effort!

Sweet Natural Tips for Ageless Beauty With Very Little Effort!There are so many anti-aging tips out there, that you feel like you’ve read them all, right? Well these tips are mostly new - and require less effort than you might realize. At Ontario Bakery, we love our home style baked goods, but we also like to feel and look good, so here are some tips we know you’ll love too!
Eat more chocolate.  
What? I know it seems crazy, but it’s true. Chocolate really does keep you gorgeous and youthful but there’s more you need to know for it to fully do it’s job. The truth is (that’s spreading fast) that Chocolate is loaded with a high amount of antioxidant rich nutrients necessary for healthy skin and hair and reduced stress levels. However, these power nutrients are not found in cheap candy bars and the everyday mocha latte. They are found in the cacao content of the chocolate. You can find this on the bar of chocolate with benefits kicking in at 60% and higher. Some people prefer dark and others prefer milk. But as far as the benefits go, it depends on your digestion and taste preference.

Drink water.

But really - drink a lot of water. If you go for 2 liters a day, you should be good. Stay away from additional dehydrating foods like breads, crackers and coffee. Dehydration will make youthful skin look older than it is, so if you’re already fighting time and gravity, you’ll want to make sure you’ve had enough water in your system.

Let it go.

Can you? Can you let go of the petty things that irritate you so much? Not saying you should let people walk all over you - but definitely choose your battles and practice not taking everything so personally. This will cause you to be more at peace. You’ll smile more and that alone makes you more youthful.

Sleep now.

You may have heard it said, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” but the truth is, that the less we sleep, the sooner death comes. Did you know you can literally die from lack of sleep? If your whole body can die, think of what can happen to your skin, your eyes and hair? Not good. Plus, the more sleep you get, the more clearly you can think and handle stress.

Bentonite.
This green healing clay has been used for many centuries both internally and externally. On the outside, you can use it to exfoliate, cleanse and even as a mask to draw impurities out of your skin. Internally, it helps to detox you and clean out what might be stuck inside you. Read more about it and see how it might help you in your life.

In the end, it’s vital (literally) to live your life! Choose to be light and enjoy the goodness around you. It’s all about balance. Find that, and then the benefits will come through for you!

At Ontario Bakery we are always ready to make your life a little sweeter. Call us for your custom baked cake and other desserts today!

How to Actually Enjoy Your Family This Holiday Season!

How to Actually Enjoy Your Family This Holiday Season!
When you think about the holidays, do you think about being trapped around your family? t doesn’t matter who your family is, there always seems to be that one person or whole household that seems to cause tension or conflict. Well, we at Ontario Bakery are a family run business, and we face all the same difficulties as other families. So we want to share some helpful tips with you about enjoying the holidays even with your family around.
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Yes, you’ve heard it before, but there’s so much truth in it. You don’t need to prove your point or change anyone. You’re there to enjoy people and celebrate the beauty of another year. If conversations come up that get under your skin, remember that it’s just each person’s hurt, issues and opinions. You aren’t defined by all of it. So let it go.
See person inside. We’re usually frustrated because we focus only on what we see. But the truth is, nobody is the person we see on the outside. A person can be look happy and put together on the outside and be miserable and angry. A person can look wild and rebellious on the outside be a very loving and happy human. People with strong and angry feelings may be really hurting inside and dealing with a lot. So don’t take it personally. See who they are for real and love that person.
You’re not the solution.  As much as you’d like to see your family push through a challenge or grow, you can’t do it for them. You also can’t lecture them enough to see it your way. Be honest, give advice when asked, but more importantly, be loving.
No one said you need to spend the whole time with one person. Spend a little time, ask a few questions, show love and move on. You aren’t asked stay and just suffer through it.

So as you prepare for the coming holiday gatherings, remember that it’s your job to decide how you will enjoy it or not. Also remember that Ontario Bakery is here to make your holidays even sweeter. If you’re looking for a delicious way to end your holiday meal or party, please call Ontario Bakery. We specialize in custom baked cakes and goods for all celebrations.
