Physical Health Eat Well

You know you love your sweets.  And far be it from me to tell you not to have any; that is both not realistic and also mean.  But maybe some advice that might help limit the number of cookies to one? https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/single-post/2014/09/25/Sugar-pie-honey-bunch-You-know-that-I-love-you Be Active Like you need more incentive to get up and move a little, evidence is piling up that shows that inactivity is not just not good for you, but is linked to greater incidence of diseases like cancer and heart disease.  And easy fix?  Get up, turn the screen off, and move.  And drag your loved ones with you! https://www.cancer.org/latest-news/sitting-time-linked-to-higher-risk-of-death-from-all-causes.html Ohmigosh. So not only is exercise good for your brain, your muscles, your mood, and your social connections, now it’s good for your gut, too.  Get out and MOVE, Friends! https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/exercise-cardio-gut-health

I'm really trying to get myself reorganized and create more workouts, but ... I'm going to include a couple quality options from Internet-land, and let you enjoy the efforts of others! The first option I am sharing is a BBG workout (Bikini Body Guide).  If you haven't heard of BBG, then this will be a great intro for you.  This is a free sample of her subscription plan.  Two circuits, 4 moves each.  Set your timer for 7 minutes, and do circuit one as many times as you can (with proper form) for that 7 minutes. One minute break.  Repeat for circuit 2: 7 minutes, as many repetitions of the complete circuit as possible.  One minute rest.  Repeat 7 minutes of circuit one, and 7 minutes of circuit 2, resting one minute between.  Done! https://www.kaylaitsines.com/blogs/exercises/a-free-bbg-style-workout-to-prepare-you-for-the-12-week-challenge Basic moves + medium weight = a good workout.   https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/30-Minute-Full-Body-Workout-Video-36303832 Spiritual Health Being around positive people helps feed your positive state, as well, giving you inspiration, compassion, and support. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/10/well/the-power-of-positive-people.html Mental & Emotional Health You might find this odd that I would out something about weight in the ‘mental wellness’ category, but I really believe that a good part of our motivation and commitment to wellness comes from our understanding of why it is important to make healthful decisions.  The science behind the suggestions we get from the experts that be is compelling.  Wellness is not just about what yo put in your mouth and how many minutes you exercise each day; it’s about how you feel, how balanced you are, and how much you look forward to each day.   You might have seen/read this article when I posted it on my HEP Facebook page.  I love that it so clearly explains the link between weight and health, and the myriad of different ways the two are interrelated ... and how confusing that link can be, even to scientists.   https://www.self.com/story/the-science-on-weight-and-health Social Health Marriage as social, right?  Ohmigosh, but doesn’t it seems a simple though this is the very last thing you are putting energy into?  Kids are home, if you are traveling you are dealing with that drama and those details, and ... just really, it isn’t time for THAT.  Apparently, though. It should be, https://www.fatherly.com/love-money/communication-habits-happy-couples/

Be your best, friends
