Reducing Stress

Reducing stress, as we have all been told, keeps us healthy and helps us lose weight. I do one or more of 3 things daily to reduce stress. Pray the Psalms. Meditate. Listen to quiet music and read. emoticon

Get your 8 glasses of water

Every morning on the way to work I stop at McDonald's and purchase a Large (32 oz.) UNsweet tea; it only costs me $1.08. After I finish my tea (I commute 50 miles one way) I refill that same 32 oz. cup with water a minimum of 2 times per day. On average, I drink over 100 oz. of water a day that way.

Reducing stress from neck & shoulder pain

I have found that the warm up neck movements in my Tai Chi class are helpful in eliminating my neck pain. The slow deliberate neck movements help even my stiff arthritic joints.

You deserve it!

Sometimes spending a little extra money on a bag of apple slices or a kit with hummus and pretzels is okay. If these smaller portion sizes (or convenient yet healthy foods) allow me to stay on track, it's worth it! Plus, it can actually save me money because they don't end up in the trash! emoticon

Use Iodized Salt

Of course, you shouldn't over-do salt, but when you use salt, make sure it's IODIZED. Iodine is necessary for your thyroid to make it's main hormone, thyroxine. Without enough iodine in your diet, you can develop hypothyroidism.

Get a Colonoscopy

If you're over 50, you should get a colonoscopy to check for colon cancer. The doctor removes any polyps he finds so the procedure actually PREVENTS colon cancer from developing.

Mocktail Anyone?

I used to always drink alcohol on "date night". Now I enjoy a "mocktail" made of Club Soda on the Rocks with a wedge of fresh lime. It has Zero Calories and no artificial sweeteners which always make me hungrier and thirstier. I feel like I'm enjoying a special drink - but so much healthier than alcohol.
