35 IS THE NEW 85

 

I will have another 35th  birthday  next year and it will be the 50th time.. In order for me to stay 35 years old every year, I must pay attention to four simple things.

Water: Get addicted to water instead of sugar drinks.

Food: Eating 6 or more fresh or frozen fruits, veggies and nuts every day. It is a doable deal.

Walk: Walking briskly for a minimum of five minutes but get up to 20 t0 4o minutes a day for the rest of your life.

Sleep: . Google gave more opinions about when and how much sleep we need  and it is so important for our mental and physical health.Babies sleep as much as 14 or more hours for a reason. They need sleep and we do too. Infants, toddlers and kids until they hit the teens need about 9 to 14 hours of sleep.

There is a lot of sitting, computer stuff, bad food and sugar drinking going on. Obesity is serious and sugar diabetes is an epidemic. Bad sleeping habits are a part of the cause.

A solution is simple, and doable, and can start now. Drink more water.  Eat more fruits, veggies and nuts. Walk briskly for 20 to 40 minutes every day.

Sleeping soundly and taking naps when you get a chance is so important. All of us should work hard to fit in 7 to 10 hours of sleep in our schedule every day..

Sleep helps repair the  body. Sleep makes your heart tick better, helps you remember things you have been forgetting, helps you in the battle to quit eating bad stuff, and stops you from being so grumpy.

Take a Power Nap during the day. Try it. It gives a fresh start, and gets rid of tension.

Here is another tip. It is weird, but it works. It is called Auto suggestion.

Try saying this outloud.

MY ENTIRE BODY IS IN A STATE OF PERFECT RELAXATION. I FEEL THE BLOOD RUSHING THROUGH EVERY VEIN , ARTERY AND CAPILLARY GIVING ME RENEWED ENERGY

One more idea before I get too relaxed

Breathing

Let all the air out of your lungs. Use your belly muscles to get it out. Push- get that old air out.Now fill those lungs up. Use the belly muscles to fill the lungs up. do this three or four times a day. Make it the start of a habit to do it all the time.
