Hello. You are doing very well to keep healthy. My days at work are very long and stressful. So, I try to go jogging along the parkway every evening, atleast for about half-an-hour. That is very refreshing. Then in the evening, after dinner and before going to bed, I would practise "Yoga meditation" for about an hour. Meditation is very helpful for mental as well as physical health.

I walk on the days that the weather permits, I live in the south and the weather is changing, it is different everyday, some days it is raining, some days it is nice, I walk those days, now it is getting colder. I am not a cold weather person. I try to eat healthy food, I cook my food in a healthy way. I choose food that is good for my health.

First thing in the morning drink lots of water at least 30 minutes before you eat anything. Many people are feeling sick and tired because their bodies are dehydrated. Dehydration can lead to many serious illnesses. Save yourself from alot of pain and suffering and keep your body hydrated with natures perfect drink (WATER!!!). It's pretty simple.

I have to admit. I am not doing enough to keep my body as healthy as it should be. I need to increase the amount of water that I drink every day, I don't eat enough fruits and vegetables and well, maybe a little more exercise. I have been trying to increase what I need to be doing daily, but sometimes, I fail. Which everyone knows will happen, but you have to keep trying. One thing I have strived to do is lower my stress level as much as possible. With everything that we do on a daily basis it is no wonder that all of us aren't on blood pressure medications. We tend to run a huge array of stress in our lives that actually contributes to our health issues. Think I need a walking partner to help kick me in the butt!

Hi mommy I know this might sound a little strange but my health hint of the day is SMILING.. I belive in affirmations. If you smile it makes you feel good all over. So have a smile about something every couple of hours thru the day and it will make all those aches and pains not seem so bad. Have a nice evening and remember to KEEP SMILING.
