How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive

How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"We've steeped ourselves in the research and the tea leaves read quite auspiciously: tea makes you more alert more relaxed and less likely to die tomorrow. These are all good things."

 

Humans have been steeping leaves in hot water for 500,000 years. Us Americans drank 79 billion servings of tea last year, amounting to 3.6 billions gallons in total.

 

So clearly, we're quite invested in the hot stuff--as is the freshly tea-pushing Starbucks--but what does it invest in us? New research into the relationship between nutrition and the brain is helping us to understand why tea time is such an essential part of the day--for the components of tea help us be more alert, more relaxed, and healthier over the long term.

Does Reading Make You Healthier and Happier?

Does Reading Make You Healthier and Happier? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
BOOKS AND MORE BOOKS I recently read the column of Drs. Oz & Roizen, titled Reading makes you healthier and happier. Here is partially what Drs. Oz & Roizen had to say. ...But neuromarketing researchers from the University of Sussex's Mindlab found that reading an old-fashion, open-a-book-and-learn-something text (start with "You: The Owner's Manual," revised)…
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

While "health" is my beat, you might say, "aging" is usually my focus. However, I don't just believe in a long life, I believe in a long, healthy, life full of pleasure and enjoyment. Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair has its place on the pleasure curve, but, if you're going to sit there, why not enjoy a good book and get some extra health benefits from it.

With many of the elderly experiencing health problems that include poor mobility, vision loss, hearing loss, communication barriers and memory loss, wearable technology can be helpful.

If you're plus size or overweight, you may be confused or even intimidated about how to exercise. Find out about workouts you can try for plus size people.
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

Exercise is good for you, no matter how you look or feel now, or how you look or feel later.

 

The truth is that, because of genes and several other factors, including how much time we have to commit to exercise, we are not all going to look like bodybuilders and fashion models.

 

In fact, even among "professionals" in those areas, there are some who just don't look like the ones on the covers of the fitness and fashion magazines.

 

However, anybody can reap the health benefits of exercise from a regular exercise program, not to mention the wonderful feeling that comes with being healthy and fit....even IF you are still "overweight".

Food As Medicine: It's Not Just A Fringe Idea Anymore

Food As Medicine: It's Not Just A Fringe Idea Anymore | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Better health through good nutrition is not a new idea, but it's growing in popularity, and in acceptance among health professionals, as more medical professionals make meals and snacks a formal part of care, rather than relying solely on medications after the person's health is at risk.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

As a society, we rely on medicines to "fix" us once we are sick. However, there are many things involved in becoming sick, and, in staying healthy. Exercise is the leader that we read about the most, but, nutrition and rest are important aspects of living a longer, healthier life.

Why You Don’t Have to Exercise Every Day

Why You Don’t Have to Exercise Every Day | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Exercising a few times a week may be just as good for your health, your heart and reducing your cancer risk as hitting the gym every day.

 

Exercise is one of the best ways to avoid chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer, as well as an early death. But it can be tough to squeeze into a schedule: Health experts recommend about 150 minutes of moderate activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous, breath-sapping exercise, each week.

Running in Reverse

Running in Reverse | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Backward running, also known as reverse or retro running, is not as celebrated as barefoot running and will never be mistaken for the natural way to run. But a small body of science suggests that backward running enables people to avoid or recover from common injuries, burn extra calories, sharpen balance and, not least, mix up their daily routine.

Walking and running are excellent forms of exercise, especially for cardiovascular health. Backward running or walking is a surprising new method for enhancing the effects of these forms of exercise.
