The Miracle of Yoga

Yeah yoga really has proven itself in helping people reduce stress. Less stress = a healthier heart. That becomes super important for those with heart disease in the family (like mine). Heart attacks are still a huge killer, if you think you might be prone to them, adding some yoga to your life might not be a terrible idea.

The miracle of yoga, you say out loud,  how could it be a miracle? Well, first of all yoga is a form of mediation which has been proven to help increase blood flow and to clear the brain and at times help get rid of some diseases.  Yoga stretches your body which also helps to increase blood flow in your body, which allows your brain to have more oxygen, along with a surplus of other benefits.  Spending at least twenty minutes every day stretching, meditating or doing yoga will in the end help you become more flexible and relaxed.

Personally, I use yoga techniques when I am having a panic attack.  Learning how to control your breathing and how to turn off the thoughts in your head is a major win.

The food, the nutrients and the values

Some really good food for thought (pun intended).

Ser and Stuff

Everyone knows that the key to a healthy life is having a healthy diet. In today’s society media shows you one food advertisement after the other. One product claiming to be even tastier or healthier than the other. When you go into the supermarket products are labeled with seals claiming that said product is a healthy choice. Packaging advertises things such as “0% fat” or “no added sugar”. These things can be decent guidelines, but in my experience you shouldn’t take them to heart. Don’t forget these are still companies trying to make a profit. I’ve found that teaching yourself to read the nutrient value’s on the packaging together with the basic knowledge of what kind of effect nutrients have on your body, will make resisting poor food choices and picking healthier food a lot easier.

Based on the knowledge I gathered during my research on nutrients I decided for…
