Causes and Cures of Pain
From aching joints to general fatigue, sometimes we’re plagued by symptoms, but we don’t know what the medical problem could be at the root of our pain. Here are a few health issues that could be causing your problems, and a few “quick tips” that may help.
  1. Backaches – An old mattress can cause back pain, but you may want to have your doctor check your vitamin D levels – a deficiency can cause back and joint pain. A daily supplement can help if that’s the culprit. Weakened vertebrae, muscle fatigue, and back spasms may be eased with daily stretching, yoga, and hot and cold therapy applied via heating pad and ice packs (see your doctor for help with how to use this correctly).

  2. Aching joints – Pain sensitivity is particularly acute for women who have gone through menopause. If you eat tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, dairy, and/or gluten, keep a food diary to see if food sensitivity is a culprit of your pain.

  3. Lethargy and fatigue – Remaining alert and awake ensures you’re working at your highest levels of productivity. If you’re also suffering from sensitivity to cold and unexplained weight gain, hypothyroidism could be to blame. Of course, poor sleep could be at fault; get 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day to increase levels of deep sleep.

  4. Foot pain – Though gout affects joints throughout the body, the most common place for this painful condition to occur is the base of the big toe. Pain concentrated in the heel or arch of the foot may result from plantar fasciitis. Ditch the high heels and tight-fitting shoes, and lose excess weight to help decrease pain. Alcohol and stress can increase gout flare-ups.

How To Prevent Cloud Hackers
Never heard of “Cloud Hackers?” You undoubtedly know the importance of backing-up photos from your smartphone and documents on your computer to cloud storage, just in case something happens to your devices. While it’s nice to know you have a copy of your digital files that can be retrieved from almost anywhere, it’s also important that you take steps to protect data that you store in the cloud from hackers who may attack or break into online storage centers.
  • Avoid automatic backups. Yes, having your devices automatically backed up means you don’t have to worry about it, but this also means every single photo, video, and file you create is sent to the cloud – and accessible by hackers. You may have several apps uploading photos, so you need to disable each and every one. Note that the built-in Camera app on iOS and Android can’t be disabled and every image is uploaded to the cloud. To delete them, you need to remove them directly from the online storage space. You can disable this feature for mobile devices, and upload on your own schedule.

  • Check files that are already backed up. Take some time to browse your cloud storage to make sure there aren’t sensitive items like bank statements or questionable photos that you wouldn’t want others to find.

  • Strengthen passwords. Create a 12-character password or longer for your cloud storage system, and change it a few times annually. Use a variety of capitalization, numbers, letters, and punctuation, and avoid using names, places, or actual words (or have make one for you).

A Heartfelt Message To My Special Clients and Friends...
I want to share a little secret with you. I don’t spend my time cold calling or pestering people for business. Instead, I focus 110% of my efforts on giving such outstanding service that people naturally think of me when a friend, neighbor or family member needs a caring and competent REALTOR®.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank a few of the special people in my life who’ve helped build my business with their enduring support and referrals. I couldn’t do it without you!

Thank you to Alishia Hanson, who referred her parents, Jerry & Cheryl Hubbel to me to list their home. I am looking forward to working with them as they prepare to move from Fountain Hills to a new build in the North Valley.
Fun Facts and Laughs

Ways To Boost Your Happiness Factor . . .

If you find yourself wallowing in negativity, science says you should do the following to improve your mood:
  • Volunteer. Donate a few hours to help in your community or give money to a good cause (check for ideas).
  • Flip through photos. Hang a few at eye level throughout your home for quick viewing.
  • Create a gratitude list. Write down a few things that you are thankful for in your life. Be specific. Tuck the list away and pull it out when you feel a case of the crummies coming on.
  • Let the light in. Sunshine lifts spirits and aids in sounder sleep at night.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  What should I know about owning investment property?
A.   You can make a successful investment by avoiding these mistakes:
  • Being an absentee owner. Visit the property often and talk to your tenants to get feedback. If you bought a house as a “passive” investment, you may want to hire a property management company.
  • Not having adequate insurance. Work with an insurance professional who will see that you are covered.
  • Not charging fair rent. A REALTOR® who is an Investor Specialist can help you decide what is reasonable for the property.
  • Selecting unreliable tenants. Check all references and credit histories. Good renters will help you generate positive cash flow you can use to reinvest and lower the property payment.
