Women  staying strong and healthy as they age

Take a walk to keep you bones strong throughout your life

There is much evidence on how you need to keep your bones healthy as you age.  And Linda Sparrowe and Patricia Walden in their book  Yoga for healthy bones speak on the importance of diet and healthy bones.

As you age, especially after menopause, women begin to lose calcium from their bodies because of lifestyle choices; not participating in weight bearing exercising such as walking, and because of what they eat.
Research continues to mount on the fact that women who are vegetarian lose far less bone mass in their later years than women who eat animal-derived protein.

Perspective: Looking at things in a different way

Aug 25th, 2012 Posted in Accepting Change, Healthy Foods | no comment »

Every single time I think that I have had the worse day of my life, someone tells me a story that tops all my troubles. I find that I write more when I feel troubled, and it helps! But when I wallow in some self pity at times, I find that the best thing for me to do is find someone to talk to. This helps to put things in perspective for the day.

“What about Me!” goes away and you can center yourself on finding ways to help someone else find their perspective for the day.
