Things You Should Never Do, Especially on Friday the 13th!

  1. If you must yawn, always cover your mouth. It’s good manners, and if you don’t – according to superstition – it could lead to illness or even demonic possession.
  2. On Friday, the 13th, or any other day, you must not cross a knife and a fork on a dinner table. Not only is it improper etiquette but you will invite bad luck because it symbolizes difficult times ahead. Another superstition held that a knife presented as a gift should never be given outright to the recipient but instead either bought or loaned. You should ask for a token payment, perhaps a nickel or penny, lest the knife represent a severing of the bonds of friendship.
  3. Most people know that breaking a mirror is said to bring seven years’ bad luck, but you may not know that mirrors must also be covered up in the presence of the sick or dying. This is because, by some traditions, the patient may happen to look in the mirror and see Death itself lurking in the reflection.

New Year-New You, Let’s Start with Fresh Fruit!

Did you know that we have fresh fruit at all of our Swiss Farms locations? This weekend, January 7,8, there will be free samples of our fresh watermelon for all those who visit. With the start of a new year, why not start with some fresh fruit and good eats?

 

Here are a few tips to ensure a healthy start to 2017:

1. Move your body.
You can’t underestimate the power of experiencing the strength of your physical body in healthy ways. Find healthy movement that you enjoy and try to participate in it at least 60 minutes daily. You’re establishing rhythms that will support you throughout your life, so get a move on.

2. Eat more fruits and veggies.
Your body craves nourishment in every calorie. Why do you think you can’t stop eating that junk food!? Save yourself the trouble of discovering your metabolism can no longer handle all the treats you eat, and fill your plate with fruits, greens and veggies.

3. Make connections with people (in person)!
Life is amazing and beautiful, but you have to look up from your phone to see it. Connect with nature and people in real life rather than through your technology, and when you are with them, keep your technology away. The filling of the heart and mind you’ll experience will surprise you.

 

We look forward to seeing you this weekend!
