Instead, I’m going to be opening up my Old-Fashioned Friday Pinterest board as a group board so you all can pin your posts directly there.Continue Reading

Are You An Introvert or an Extrovert? And Why It Matters for Your Health

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? And why it matters for your health | ourheritageofhealth.com

 

If you’ve been on social media lately, chances are you’ve noticed more and more mention of the topic of introverts and extroverts.

Why all of this  increased focus on personality types (and especially about the topic of introversion)? Well, my guess is that it started, at least in part, when Susan Cain published her bestselling book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking.

This book was a big deal for a lot of introverts because it helped us to understand ourselves better and to realize that we’re not actually crazy and that it’s ok to be a quieter, more reserved person in a culture that usually tends to value being gregarious and outgoing. (And, yes, I definitely fall into the introvert category. In fact, I’m an introverted introvert, or a double introvert, you could say.)Continue Reading

Easy Homemade Sourdough Bread Recipe from 1869

Easy homemade sourdough bread recipe from 1869 | ourheritageofhealth.com

If you’re not used to baking homemade bread, making sourdough bread might sound a bit intimidating at first, but once you get used to it, this bread is really much easier than “regular” yeasted bread.

This easy homemade sourdough bread only needs to be kneaded once, and after that you can just put it in the same pan you’re going to bake it in and let it rise overnight. Then, the next morning when it has risen, all you have to do is put it in the oven and you’re done.Continue Reading

Are You Making Time to Enjoy the Simple Things?

Are you making time to enjoy the simple things in life? If you don't have time for appreciating the simple pleasures, you're much too busy! | ourheritageofhealth.com

This spring, I did something I haven’t always done other years. I’ve made a point of really enjoying and appreciating the flowers blooming this time of year and bringing some inside so I can look at them more often.

I’m not really sure why I’ve never done this other years. It’s not like it takes a lot of time to cut a few flower blooms and put them in a vase with some water. I guess I just always felt like I was “too busy” to bother. My mental to-do list was so full that there wasn’t room in my mind to even notice the flowers, let alone think to bring them inside.Continue Reading
