IT’ S THE BASICS

I started this “Health and Wellness” walk June 12, 2006. I am now 35 years old for the 50th time. Health and Wellness is my passion. I pray, read, think, study, research, write, talk, blog, and WALK about it.

99% of me being smart is knowing what I am dumb at. That is just about everything about my body. The hardest lesson to learn was always get advice only from those who are smarter and walk the talk.

My body has three parts, the NOGGIN, GUT and DIGITALS. Today we talk about the noggin.

The noggin is the control center that processes the five senses of SIGHT-SOUND-SMELL-TASTE AND TOUCH. Play with it. Hold up an item and you will get feelings as the Noggin processes an opinion based on how it is programed. If you see a person the noggin processes how you react. Hmm? Is there jealousy, fear, and, greed, or love, laughter, peace, fun and other stuff? There is constant input to the brain. Habits start to arrive from doing stuff over and over. Enough of this heavy stuff.

In the Noggin is a big fat lazy muscle called the brain. When the same situation keeps getting in the noggin over and over the brain converts it to a HABIT. It took a long time to learn how to tie a shoe, brush my teeth, tie a tie, etc., etc. Get my gist? Doing something good or bad without thinking is called a habit. 

Bad stuff is recorded 10 times more often than good stuff. There are folks that spend their lives studying the brain. I wrote down the good habits I want to do every day. I call it the 2do2day list. These are 10 things I do every day without thinking. These are good habits.

To be healthy there are things I know, but I still did dumb things anyhow. I want to quit these bad habits.

Here is an Example. A major cause of diabetes is Obesity. A major cause of obesity is too many sugar drinks. Here is how to replace a bad habit with a good one.

Drink a little more water and less sugar drink. Then drink more water and a lot less sugar drink. And today I drink water and no sugar drinks. I am clean of an addiction for over four years. It’s the basics. The brain is a fat lazy muscle. It fought me until I put in different software.

Eating six or more fresh and fresh frozen fruits, and veggies and nuts every day is a great habit.

Here are a few things I don’t eat and replaced them.

Marketing gurus , food processors, and government bureaucrats are having a field day with the BUZZ WORD “ORGANIC”. There are $ hounds charging a fee if you use “ORGANIC” on your label. One store got caught moving ears of corn from a basket with the price 29 cents  an ear over to the other side. Put the corn in a basket with the sign ORGANIC $1.25 an ear.

 Those of you who know me know that I do not take myself seriously.  In my writing, I like to express my thoughts and opinion about two important things that affect all of us big time.   Our health and happiness, are subjects I do take seriously.

We are making great improvements in most of the areas of health. We are losing ground in diabetes and obesity. Experts are saying that two thirds of us in the USA are overweight and almost a third of us are obese. This is a big problem.

My obsession, my passion is Healthy Happy Living. I write about it, talk about it, and walk about it.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein. He was probably the smartest human to come from the 20ty Century.

The epidemic of diabetes is getting worse instead of better. Some experts don’t even limit the statistics to Type 2.  Most experts say that the major cause of diabetes is obesity. A major cause of obesity is too much consumption of sugary drinks.

 

There is a simple way to solve the obesity problem. Drink a little more water and a little less sugar drinks, then drink a little more water and a  lot less sugar drinks, then drink lots of water and no sugar drinks. Many Doctors are calling processed sugar a drug. Just choose not you use it.

Thanks REASEARCH TEAM

Studies show that eating foods rich in good fats  may help blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease. Research also shows that these fatty acids may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be especially helpful if you have type 2 diabetes. Has that got your attention?
