Any chef worth his salt will tell you that the best flavours are born from fresh produce and the best flavours can be had from none other than your garden. Your herb garden, to be exact.

Here, a step by step guide to get your started on a sustainable herb garden in your very own kitchen.

Pick a Location
The best place for an herb garden is a spot in the kitchen that catches at least six hours of sun a day. A kitchen windowsill is just perfect for plotting herbs in small containers.

Prep for Planting
Start by loosening the soil then add compost, peat moss or coarse sand to the soil to improve drainage. Plant early in the morning or late in the afternoon to prevent the transplants from wilting in the midday sun.

Dig Planting Holes
Create large plant holes for bedding plants. Each hole should be about twice the width of the root ball of the new plant.

Add Plants to Soil
Space the bedding plants at least 18 inches apart to afford them room to spread out and grow. Place taller herbs, such as sage, rosemary and marjoram, toward the back of the garden, and place shorter herbs parsley and cilantro in the front.

Label The Herbs
Label each herb for easy identification.

Surround With Flowering Plants
Pretty up your herb garden with flowering plants like zinnias and salvia.

Water Regularly
Water the new transplants regularly plenty. Make sure the herbs get an inch of water each week.

Harvest Mature Herbs
Feel free to harvest herbs as soon as they are mature, taking only what you need. Refrain from over-harvesting (i.e. taking more than a third of the plant) Fresh herbs taste best when harvested in the morning and herbs are most flavourful if harvested before they bloom.

Get yourself into shape in ten swift moves.

Bust The Calories

Bust The Calories

Get yourself into shape in ten swift moves.

1.​ ​Burpees. Swiftly moving from standing to squatting to push-up position challenges all your muscles.


2.​ ​Jumping jacks. These do-anywhere moves pump up your heart rate in no time.


3.​ ​Mountain climbers. This cardio move helps strengthen legs and core muscles as well.
4.​ ​Frogger: This plank-to-squat move seems simple, but you’ll feel it as you do your 30-second bursts. Begin in a plank position. Jump your feet to the outside of your hands, coming into a deep squat and keeping your hands on the floor, then jump back to plank. Repeat in a quick succession (steps 1 to 4) ten times.


5.​ ​Running up stairs. Run up and down the stairs at home or at the office — you’ll get the added bonus of a toned backside.

6.​ ​Walking lunges. These lunges help you develop balance while strengthening your core and lower body. Do these briskly, but make sure your form stays correct to prevent knee or ankle strain. Here’s how to do a perfect walking lunge.


7.​ ​High knees: Run in place while engaging your core and pumping your arms. The goal should be to keep your knees high and maintain an upright posture as you do your speed bursts.


8.​ ​Lateral hops: Make small jumps side to side as if you are jumping over an invisible line.


9.​ ​Jump squat: Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.


10.​ ​Box step: Find a step, stool, or box (or aim toes at an imaginary step) and lightly tap your left toes to the box, then jump to switch feet, bringing the right toes up.

Repeat the entire series 5 times.

HEART to HEART

(Khmer) ​ច​ក្រា​បេះដូង​

Heart Chakra
Sanskrit Word: Anahata meaning “unstruck” or “unhurt”
Colour: Green
Location: the center of the 7 chakras
Mantra: OM MANI PADME HUM

Love is given and received through the energy center, also known as the heart chakra. The heart chakra is basically what you think it is, everything dealing with the heart. Are you feeling loved and are you loving back?

Balance in the heart is very important, and without a healthy balance a lot of couples will struggle with an unjust balanced of one partner loving more than the other and a built of resentment or exhaustion from being a give, give, giving without any reciprocation.

Frau, Mann, Liebespaar, Haar, bruenett, braunhaarig, dunkelhaarig, innen, Erotik, erotisch, Sex, nackt, kuessen, Kuss, Leidenschaft, leidenschaftlich, Hingabe, verfuehren, Verfuehrung, Liebesspiel, sexy, Umarmung, umarmen, Naehe, liegen, Lust, Bett, lustvoll Bildrecht: Keine Einschraenkungen der Urheberrechte bekannt.

Schlagworte:Schlagworte, Paar, Hingabe, People, Leidenschaft, Ausdruck Neutral, Sexualitaet

The heart chakra doesn’t only deal with love with your intimate partners but with family, friends, and yourself. Everyone wants to feel loved. You yearn for self-love your whole life as well, and that very closely is correlated to the energy near the heart chakra.

It is important to open your heart and be mindful of how you give and receive love. Most people keep their heart closed due to painful past circumstances and the fear of vulnerability, but vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength and if you are never completely vulnerable your heart won’t be truly open to it’s full potential of love. Learn to open yourself up to unconditional love and compassion.

You deserve love!
