Today I want to share with you some Beneficial ACTIONS that really help you live a longer life as well as having long health.
Having three meals and two or three snacks a day is a great way fit in all the nutrition your body needs – and more. You’ll keep your blood sugar lower and steadier to guard against diabetes and heart conditions associated with blood sugar problems. You’ll avoid big portions and a starve and binge pattern that can lead to extra weight.
When possible, eat organic. But more importantly avoid the common food additives and ingredients that are potent health wreckers: Excess sodium, trans fats, saturated fat, sweeteners and refined carbs. These five raise your blood pressure and “bad” LDL cholesterol, increase your risk of heart disease, put your blood sugar on a roller coaster and even fire up body-wide chronic inflammation which is a powerful risk factor for everything from heart disease and stroke to cancer and more.
In a stunning study that followed 202 women and men for more than 18 years, researchers found that those who practices meditation has a 23 percent lower risk of dying from any cause during the study and a 30 percent lower risk of death from heart disease. The best news is that you don’t need to sit alone in a room saying “Om…” (that does work also) Spending time with friends, walking in nature, and listening to favorite music with your spouse can all promote the deep relaxation we all need.
Insomnia – annoying, exhausting, and mysterious – becomes a common experience as we age. Medical conditions, prescriptions and over the counter drugs, eating patterns, exercise habits, time outdoors and your bedtime routine all play important roles in your sleep. Experts say the key is to work with, not against, your changing sleeping cycles as you age.
These are all very important Actions to take note of while trying to keep long health as you live your long life. It is very important to remember it is not too late to start changing your habits and behaviors now. It is not too late to reap the benefits of these changes. You can erase your past! What changes can you make today?
