Staying active through the day

Always look for ways to stay active throughout the day. I find it helpful to take the stairs rather than the elevator, and try to go for short walks during my lunch break.

Onions

Cut the ends off an onion, stab it with a fork and put it in a jar and put in the room with a sick person and it will absorb all of the bacteria. The next morning the onion will be black with bacteria.

- PROGRESS AND NOT PERFECTION

I can preserve a healthy mindset by just simply believing in PROGRESS & NOT PERFECTION~

Plenty of Sleep

When I get tired, I make sure to get to sleep, because otherwise I get really sick and collapse later.

One Day Home Vacation

1day a month I shut myself away. I prepare by having everything I need or special things I will enjoy alone, food, drinks etc, shut off the phone and just sleep in, meditate-pray, write, whatever I feel. I feel great when I return to the world--rested and renewed.

Diaper Cream!

This might sound obvious but if I think I can get away without a shower after the gym I get "hot spots" in my body creases. It even happens in the summer if it is particularly hot. Use diaper cream with zinc in it on those spots and it will soothe your skin and keep it healthy.

Learn to burn

Educate yourself. Become an expert on yourself. The recommendations of the USDA, the AHA and the ADA are basics for avoiding disease generally gotten from statistics. There are numerous resources for learning to gain optimal health. Research and don't take any one source as the last word.

Take Care of All of You

Taking care of yourself means not just your body. Talk to your family doctor if sleep disturbances, depression, or anxiety are concerns that good nutrition and exercise are not easily combating or creating overwhelming stumbling blocks to getting started with healthy lifestyle changes.
