Attitude and your Health

Attitude and your Health

Exercise, Health, Medicine
Your attitude determines your altitude. “Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one” –Dr. Hans Selye.  You are, and you draw to yourself, your most dominant thoughts (the law of the Harvest/Attraction). What are you thinking and doing that bring events and people into your life? What lessons do you need to learn so you can move on? How can you de-stress? My Suggestions: 1. Pray/Meditate. Be at peace with yourself for at least 5 minutes per day. 2. Read inspirational books, scripture, novel, motivational readings etc. 3. Be active.

Do something fun at least…

Exercise and Rest

Exercise and Rest

DR Carr/Home, Exercise, Health, Sleep
The best exercise is the one you will do regularly…almost in any form. My suggestions: Yoga – there are many benefits to yoga, among the best are: increased strength, flexibility, endurance and balance. Interval Training – Benefits: very time effective, and it increases fat burning efficiency of the body, even when not exercising. Interval training is done by exercising at maximum intensity for 30 seconds, minimum intensity (or rest) 60 seconds, then repeat for a total of 8 times. Total time intense 4 minutes, total time exercising 12 minutes. Interval training is best done 2-3 times per week. Considering doing interval training with aerobic exercises like elliptical, running, swimming, stair stepping, jump roping, etc.) As your fitness level improves, you will increase your intensity but never for more than 60…
