What is IBS? You’re Not Alone!

I have to admit that IBS isn’t a topic I’d normally think of talking about with you all here on Smart Savvy Living, but I know many of us suffer from IBS in silence. So, when the American Gastroenterological Association asked to partner with us to talk about IBS in America, I couldn’t say no, especially since we’re heading out of the season of heavy foods where IBS symptoms may skyrocket. While this article is based on my own experiences with IBS, do keep in mind that it may not be representative of everyone’s experience. #IBSinAmerica

5 Ways To Gift Coffee For The Holidays

I recently had the chance to try McCafé packaged coffee and I couldn’t say no since one of my favorite treats to myself is to stop at McDonald’s for a coffee. Since I work from home, I don’t go out every day and find it a little silly to go out juuuust for coffee, so I love the ability to make some of my favorite flavors at home with coffee I can buy at the grocery store. Plus, some days you want a stronger coffee, when other days you want it super sweet and creamy. McCafé packaged coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans comes in seven different varieties such as Breakfast Blend, Espresso Roast, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and more so you’ll never get bored. Many of the varieties come in both ground coffee and K-Cups which I appreciate so that I can make single cups for myself during the week or a whole pot for both of us on the weekend. McCafé packaged coffee is also pretty reasonably priced with average prices being $7.49 for 12oz ground coffees, $8.39 for 12 count K-Cups, and $11.99 for 18 count K-Cups.

How to Relieve Holiday Stress

It seems like these days life is more stressful than ever between our jobs, family, and other responsibilities. While the holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and happiness to enjoy with family and friends, it can also be the most stressful time of year for many of us. We worry about making sure the kids have all the toys they want and finding the money to do so. We stress over making everyone’s favorite holiday dishes while worrying about our waistline after enjoying too many cookies. Don’t even get me started on how frustrating holiday travel can be. If you’re like me, you probably spend so much time making sure the holidays are perfect for everyone else that you spend very little time looking after yourself and end up being a grinch by Christmas and need a vacation after the holidays because you’re so frazzled. If this sounds like you, check out our tips for how to relieve holiday stress below.

How To Automatically Backup Your Computer

With technology constantly at our fingertips now, many of us are constantly recording memories through pictures and videos that we store on our computer to revisit one day. Then there are so many documents we store on our computers instead of keeping physical copies like tax returns and contracts that are super important we keep records of.

5 Tips for Stress-Free Holiday Cooking

One thing I think most of us enjoy about the holidays is the whole family and friends getting together and enjoying a good meal. There’s a whole lot of good food, humor and a chance to see those that we may not have even seen since last year while relaxing and enjoying good company.

I’ve been lucky to escape vision problems so far in life, but vision care is something very important to me as most of my family members had vision issues and had to wear glasses at least part of the time.
