But there are so many different kinds of rest your body needs. Are you getting enough? https://ideas.ted.com/the-7-types-of-rest-that-every-person-needs/ Eat Well Fruit is amazing: nutrient-packed, full of fiber, tastes great ... So why do some people not enough of it? Dried fruit may be the answer for that, but, as with all foods, the key is moderation and paying attention to serving sizes. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/eating-dried-fruit-linked-to-better-overall-diet-and-health Be Active Yes, it’s no secret: we are all getting older.

Social Health Let's face it: sometimes, we have to deal with annoying people. There's a good way to do that, I promise, and it will probably make you feel good about the interaction, rather than walking away angry. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/wellness/loving-kindness-meditation-help-annoying Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook
