It’s finally spring. I love this time of year because I crave exercising and physical activity. Now that the days are longer and the weather is warming up, I’m back to walking with my neighbor, jogging the block with my 6-year old and playing family basketball in the driveway. Spring also means baseball season. If you’re a Yankees fan, you will be interested to hear more about the healthy changes in the clubhouse. Also in this week’s Health & Wellness News & Info Recap, a recent study releases information about the importance of moving around and an explanation of toxic chemicals in perfumes.
This is exactly what I do and why I do it. “For reversing disease, a whole-foods, plant-based diet seems to be necessary.”
The New York Yankees recently hired a nutritionist to educate the players on certain food and lifestyle changes that may authentically advance their game. In addition, the clubhouse is now stocked with produce, lean-meat proteins and hearty grains. I’m so very excited that the team is not only positioning their players for success, but also paving the way for them to be healthy lifestyle role-models.
A recent study supports that it’s not just about diet and exercise, it’s also really important to get up and move around for longevity.
The sense of smell is so powerful. It can evoke vivid memories of a certain time. However, I try to eliminate all “fragrances” from my food and cosmetics. I’ve learned in the past year that perfumes and fragrances are not regulated and can be filled with hormone disruptors, huge allergens and other toxic chemicals that disrupt our systems.
Wouldn’t it be powerful to wallpaper a room with these popular influential and inspirational quotes? When it comes to being healthy and happy, I need to step back and refocus on my personal or professional goals. Words of wisdom from great leaders and everyday people provide positive energy and a restarting place to move forward.
What are you most excited about for this spring?
