I recently decided that regardless of the difficulty, I am going to get into exercising regularly, juicing and meditating; I mean after all, I hit the "over 40" mark more than a few years ago (shhhhhhhhh, that is between you and I).
So, in deciding to make these changes I have been doing a little reading. I came across an article on Prevention.com which I found to be very interesting. I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the information with you. If you'd like to read the article, you can find it here.
All of that said, the article provided eight things that we can do to assist in preventing us from experiencing these very likely and issues. These new (for some) habits, when applied to your daily life will assist in preventing or slowing down many if not all of those previously mentioned conditions; thus allowing us to live healthier, happier lives for many more years.
at some moves that are excellent for some of the most stubborn parts of the body; you guessed it….the butt, thighs, stomach, arms and hips.
***** Increase your calcium and vitamin D intake – this is great for helping you maintain strong bones. It is suggested that you have at least 1,000 mg of calcium and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin D each day. Go to Prevention.com and learn more about which supplements are best for women; this page is very informative.
***** Increase your protein intake – foods with amino acids will boost your levels of mood-lifting neurotransmitters in the brain. This will help decrease symptoms of depression and increase your thinking and memory. It is suggested to have at least 4 ounces of protein in your meal each day.
***** Gain control of your stress – for the purpose of a healthy heart one must eliminate as much stress as possible. Along with controlling stress, you will also see improved blood pressure; great energy flowing through the brain; higher libido; and slowed cell death. Prevention.com suggests that something as simple as breathing through your nose for 4 beats and out for 8 at least twice a day can make a huge difference!
***** And finally, keep track of your health! – all of what was previously mentioned is important, but even more importantly, you have to make sure you are healthy; the only way to do that is to keep up with your doctor visits! Basic, routine appointments should include eye exams every 2 to 4 years; blood pressure every 2 years; pap test/pelvic exam every 1 to 3 years; thyroid every 5 years; mole check every year (this is absolutely news to me!); mammogram every 1 to 2 years; and blood glucose every 3 years after the age of 45.
So, now that I’ve shared ALL of this very IMPORTANT information with you, it is up to you to follow through. What have we learned? We have learned that part of being naturally beautiful is eating right, exercising, loving others and being loved, and keeping a close eye on your health.
In closing, I want to remind you ladies that in life we get what we put in; this is why caring and loving one’s self naturally….mind, body and soul is so necessary.
Free being me, naturally!
