Today’s Healthy Dose – Stretch
Stand up, slowly raise straight arms out and over your head, clasp your hands together, now look up and press your palms to the sky. Breathe and Stretchhhhhh. Now slowly lower your arms wide.
This one’s even better when you do it outside!
Today’s Healthy Dose – Stress
Stress = Increased levels of Cortisol
High Cortisol = Deteriorating muscle and bone, slowed healing, abnormal cell regeneration, weight gain, hormone disruption, digestive impairment, and decreased mental function.
Good chocolate, deep breathing, a spa day, a great read, walking, a glass of wine, a night out, tending the garden = better health!
Today’s Healthy Dose – 20 Percent
That’s the amount of antibiotics produced in the U.S. that are given to humans. The other 80 percent is fed daily to the meat we eat, simply to speed up the fattening process. It’s like a huge, super-virus welcome mat!
When you’re looking at meat labels, opt for hormone and antibiotic free.

Did you floss today? It’s not too late!
Today’s Healthy Dose – What Is It Really?
Is it really about how you look? (The little devil on your shoulder) Or is maximizing your nutrition and your movement more about how you feel? (The little angel on your shoulder)
I vote for listening to the little angel 🙂
