Eat Better and Stress Less: It’ll Make Your Cells (and Maybe You) Live Longer

Eat Better and Stress Less: It’ll Make Your Cells (and Maybe You) Live Longer | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
For the first time, researchers show how a plant-based diet, stress management and other lifestyle changes may lead to longevity.

 

It’s not quite the Fountain of Youth, but it may be the river that leads to it. In a paper published in the journal Lancet Oncology, scientists found that a small group of men who made changes in the way they ate and handled their emotional needs showed longer telomeres in their cells.

7 Tips To Bounce Back After Eating A Bit Too Much | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"No matter how healthy we are in our "normal" lives, most of us tend to loosen the reigns a little bit (or a lot) during the holidays. If you have a tendency to get into that all-or-nothing mentality, you might just wake up on January 1st wondering where all your healthy habits went."

 

Personally, I relate to this: I have a super addictive personality, so when I get into something, I have a tendency to go all in. With a little experimentation, though, I've found that it doesn't have to be so extreme. If you put a little intention into your self care, you can continue to show up for life in a vibrant, energetic state—even during the season of endless indulgences!

The Perfectionist in you is making your life difficult! It is time he has been shown the door.

OK, my hand's up! I am guilty of double dipping dessert on more than one occasion over the last couple of weeks, and I am sure I am not the only one who had a glass or two, or more, of bubbly here and there...so if you found yourself over indulging over the Holiday season too, you may find this scoop insightful. Now all we have to do is bring back a little balance and settle into 2014!

Organic food production methods promote biodiversity, the biological cycling of nutrients, and plant and animal health. Certified organic farmers may not use toxic synthetic pesticides, artificial fertilizers, and unnecessary hormones or antibiotics. Instead, they use practices that restore, maintain, and enhance soil and ecosystem health. GMOs, artificial ingredients, or trans fats may not be used.
