Another tool that is useful to stay in a loving space is to have a calendar where you can keep track of your time, projects, goals and connections to people. When you are able to keep track of your time commitments, and schedule in those things that are important to you, you have more peace and there for more space for having a loving heart.
I am going to write an article some day about my system which I have been using for 25 years, and now my son is using it! It is cheap, simple, and quick.
Another tool is a blender so you can make a green smoothie. This is the cornerstone of healthy eating in my opinion and a growing number of others. You just mix water, fruit, fresh greens and your choice of micro nutrients and very quickly you have a healthy blended meal. http://www.greensmoothiegirl.com has lots of great ideas.
