Anxiety creeps in like an unwanted weed, thwarting your emotional security and making your day tough to get through. It impacts our ability to reason and can have profound impacts on our health as well. Fortunately, this elixir we’re passing on is a great way to keep anxiety at bay. Of course, if your anxiety is particularly bad, see your physician about ways to mitigate it in a healthy way.

You will need:

  • 1 teaspoon of ground organic ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh organic lemon juice
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of raw honey.


Combine the ingredients and consume. Repeat this three times a day.

Some smaller studies have indicated that ginger root can influence human serotonin receptors and improve overall mood and demeanor. Lemon juice is well known for relieving tension and helping you unwind.

Feel better soon!

Living in an apartment can make you feel a little bit limited when it comes to your agricultural options, but don’t take no for an answer. Take no for a question. There are still a lot of fruits and vegetables that you can grow in a limited space, whether you have a balcony or even just a sunny spot inside.

1. Strawberries.

Strawberries are an easy container food. There are even ever-bearing and day-neutral varieties that yield from spring to fall. Consult your local nursery for the best indoor strawberries.

2. Herbs.

Herbs are another easy one to grow in pots. The benefit there too is that they can usually be grown in one larger pot instead of a series of smaller ones.

3. Tomatoes.

Tomatoes get a little bit trickier. They’re a thirsty plant that desires a lot of sunshine, which is hard to mimic indoors. I’ve had some luck with roma tomatoes inside, but these are best left in a sunny patch on your balcony.

4. Peas and beans.

Beans and peas are a different story! They grow easily in shadier conditions, making them perfect for the indoors.

5. Radishes.

Radishes are another great option. They grow very fast and don’t require much space, so the pots don’t have to be very big.

6. Summer greens.

The benefit to growing things like chard and lettuce in a container is that you can keep harvesting over and over again.

7. Beets.

Beets, like radishes, don’t need very much space to grow and grow pretty fast inside of a pot. There hasn’t been a year gone by that I’ve not grown a beet or too.

8. Hot peppers.

Pictured above are my Carolina Reapers from last year. They grew happily on my balcony in a little clay pot all summer long. I brought them inside in the winter, and they continued producing peppers for me well into January.

9. Cabbage.

Yuck! If you like that kind of thing I guess. Cabbage is another one that grows easily in a pot indoors.

10. Garlic.

Garlic is one of those that you have to be in for the long haul. You can plant them in the autumn, provide water periodically over the winter if you live in a dry climate, and then they’ll return in the spring, ready for harvest by summer.

11. Cucumbers.

Cucumbers are one of the most space-intensive of all of these veggies, so be careful that you don’t bite off more than you can chew, so to speak. You can purchase bushing varieties of cucumbers instead of vining for this purpose.

When I was young, I first started hearing about hard drugs like meth and heroin. “Not even once,” was the slogan we saw everywhere. I stayed away, but I guess I was lucky. That slogan wasn’t enough for some people, young and old alike. It’s a sad reality.

Reading about how meth changed you, or how heroin held you in its addictive clutches and never let go didn’t stop many. That’s the brutal nature of drugs. These photos show what we all should have seen. From their first arrest to their most recent, it’s clear that body and mind were destroyed by these drugs.

This photoset is brought to you by Rehabs, an online community whose mission is to encourage people to get the help they need. These photos show how hard on you drugs can be, and how much of a toll substance abuse can take. It’s important to heed this warning. If you need help, get it now before it’s too late.

The people photographed abused a variety of drugs, including meth, cocaine, heroin, and pain killers. I’m certain these people can tell you that you have to respect your body. Rehab offers all of the necessary tools to help you or someone you love get the help they need. Be warned, these are some intensely disturbing photos.
