PROMPT September 9th
Everyone seems to be pretty health conscious in today's world. What health tips have worked for you. If you can't think of any, or are like me and haven't pursued any, what would you like to do to improve your health?


Health tips...Don't get sick? (Just kidding)

Now to be serious, I have never been one to diet or try those fleeting health trends. I have always eaten what I want when I want. And for a while I drank a lot of soda and sweet tea (I am from Texas after all)
I can tell you from experience, cutting out the sodas and weaning myself from the sweet tea was the best thing I ever did for myself. When I cut out those drinks, I replaced them with good old fashioned H2O - water - the elixir of life, sometimes adding some lemon juice for flavor. Increasing my water intake helped more than I could have imagined. I felt better and was also able to sleep better at night since I had cut out the caffeine.

Another thing, I have always eaten a lot of fruits and vegetables. Many of these really do help aid in digestion, which will allow for a healthier lifestyle. HOWEVER, being on blood thinners, I am no longer allowed to eat any green vegetables and as a result, I have seen an increase in my weight within the last six months. So, if you can eat them and can stomach them, do it!

Of course, being active can also help you toward a healthy lifestyle. If you aren't able to get up and run or work out, try a leisurely walk or going swimming. If you are chair or bed bound, find some gentle activities you can do within your confines. Those stretchy exercise bands help in cases like that.

But being healthy isn't just physical. It is mental too. Too much stress is hard on your mind and body. So find ways of destressing - doing something active is a great way to do that as well.

Just some thoughts for a start...
