Top Ten Healthy Aging Secrets - March 2014
Everyone wants to live a fulfilling life. Our purpose is to be all that we were intended to be and to reach our full potential. Here is my list of healthy-aging secrets:
1. Be on purpose. Albert Schweitzer one of my childhood inspirational mentors, said that we should seek a purpose that occupies us fully and one in which there is never an end. An unfolding purpose keeps us engaged in life.
2. Keep the body clear and free of toxins. Poisons and addictions weaken the system and prevent us from having the energy and stamina to live vibrantly. Exercise daily and drink more water. After age 50 consider hormone balancing.
3. Meditate, pray or take time to be quiet every day. In this deep state of repose time seems to stand still and the aging process slows down. There are well known benefits of meditation – even 5 minutes a day has a healing effect.
4. Laugh and enjoy life. Laughter is healing and youth promoting. We have fewer lines and wrinkles when we can share a laugh with others and laugh at ourselves.
5. Be at peace with what is. One of my favorite authors and presenters, Byron Katie speaks of "Loving What Is." Just by accepting things as they are, creates a state of peace through which circumstances can change. The wisdom of maturity encourages us to move into the noble art of surrender – a trait that is often elusive to the young.
6. Be an inspiration - as you uplift others, you uplift yourself. Being positive keeps us young. Your every thought and action has the effect of inspiring or depressing those around you.
7. Get up early with the dawn - smell the flowers and listen to the birds - you have the world to yourself for a while. This is a great gift – to rejoice and be part of the awakening earth.
8. Get into bed by around 10pm and connect to the healing power of sleep.
9. Be at peace with your past, your parents, your childhood memories and your mistakes - everything has made you who you are today. As we forgive, a healing current enters the body and our burdens are much lighter.
10. Rejoice and give thanks for the fact you are alive. Many people would give anything to be you!

|Exercise Cool Down|
|Fitness experts recommend cooling down after a moderate to high intensity exercise session. This prevents sudden pooling of blood in the muscles. Slowly cooling down also prevents sudden drops in blood pressure that can lead to dizziness and falls. During the last 3-5 minutes of your workout, gradually decrease the exercise intensity. Gently approach your resting state before coming to a complete stop.|

|Know the pHacts! |
|One of the main reasons we become acidic, or develop acidosis, is due to our typical Western diet, which tends to be high in acid-producing animal products and lower in alkaline-producing fruits and vegetables. Coffee and soft drinks, refined flours and sugars, artificial sweeteners, and some medications can also lead to acidosis.....|
|Lisa's Easy Lentil Salad|
Description: Makes a great side dish or scooped onto organic tortilla chips as an appetizer.
Lentils have a very long association with mankind, as it is believed that these pulses have been included in human diet since Neolithic times. According to historians, lentil plants are among the first domesticated ones in the near East (countries of Western Asia between the Mediterranean Sea and Iran), which is believed to be the place of origin of these plants.
The color of lentils range from yellow, red and green to brown and black. Most varieties of white, red and yellow lentils are sold after removing their seed coat (decorticated forms).
Lentils are rich in protein, with over 25% of lentils nutritional value being protein. This makes lentils the most popular and inexpensive source for protein, especially for those, who cannot afford meat and for vegetarians. Apart from proteins, lentils have essential amino acids, dietary fiber, folate, other vitamins and minerals. 200 grams of cooked lentils contain 18 grams of protein, 40 grams of carbohydrates, 15 grams of dietary fiber, 4 grams of sugar and 138 grams of water. Calorie content in lentils is around 230 (for 200 grams of cooked lentils).
