I drink more coffee than I do water. And, I like my coffee black. But, this changed this week after reading an interesting article. Did you know drinking coffee can weaken your bones if you don’t regularly drink milk too? Researchers at the University of California studied coffee drinking habits of 980 women. Those who drank coffee without milk had weaker spinal and hip bones.

So, if you’re a caffeinated coffee lover, make sure you drink a glass of milk a day to offset any possible risk of bone loss. I’ve decided to just add it to my coffee.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Enjoy your weekend!

  • I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that?
