Certainly one of the best concepts I have learned in producing this blog is that the brain benefits from exercise. It is the first item on the infographic above – Stay Active. I have written a Page on it – Important facts about your brain (and exercise benefits.)
Regarding the “Don’t be Salty” entry, it is important to keep in mind that most of the damaging salt we consume comes in the form of processed foods. Pay attention to the salt/sodium content in the foods you consume.
Stress damages us in many ways. I have written about it numerous times. You can search S T R E S S in the tags for more. One of the best posts on it is: Super tools for handling stress that I wrote in 2011. Check it out.
Last, but not least, ‘Be happy.’ I have covered the benefits of happiness in lots of posts. I think my Page – Positive psychology – What’s it all about? will also prove valuable information.
I just stumbled across this infographic and it seemed intelligently constructed and particularly informative. Enjoy!
I ran across two interesting infographics today that I thought you might enjoy reading. One is fresh and will help you to live longer, the other lasts forever, but will not help you to do the same.
The first is watermelon whose season is near its end in these waning days of summer. For the record, watermelon is one of my favorite foods. I eat some virtually every day of the year. I am fortunate that I have food markets here in Chicago that get watermelon sent up from Mexico in the winter months. I love its natural sweetness.
The second is about a non-health food: Twinkies which is never out of season because its shelf-life is infinite.
I wrote a while back – A Love Letter to Hostess Ho-Ho’s and Twinkies – NOT. I don’t love its unnatural sweetness.
I stumbled across these surfing the web this morning. Thought you might like them.
Here is something to think about when tempted …
Doesn’t this sound like something worth trying?
I don’t remember ever hearing this one before, but I love it.
All hail to Kale! As a person late to the joys of salads, I have only recently learned about the benefits of adding Kale to my diet.
For a sweet treat that’s hard to beat in the summer, I recommend peaches. Isn’t it neat to know that they strengthen the heart, boost immunity and aid in digestion BESIDES being melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
Regular readers know that I am a nearly daily bike rider here in Chicago. As such I read some cycling blogs, too. One of my faves is Loving the Bike.
If you aren’t convinced you should also be riding, check out The Joy of Spokes and you might consider giving it a go.
This infographic on first aid for cyclists appeared in Loving the Bike. I use infographics because they get so much information into so little space. However, sometimes when I reproduce them in the blog they get skinny and become difficult to read. So, I am providing this link so you can see it in all its glory. This is super info for anyone who rides a bike. Double clicking on it expand it to full size on my Mac.
Here is one word picture worth a thousand words …
