How a Smartphone Can Help You Get Fit

How a Smartphone Can Help You Get Fit | Health & fitness |
If you need help sticking to your diet and a workout schedule, your smartphone is a great fitness tool with or without apps.


If today is the day you decide to start living more healthfully, use your phone to help you get to your goal. With the fitness and dieting apps available on your smartphone, healthy living is simpler than you think. You won’t have stress because all you need is available to you on your mobile device, whether you’re counting calories or simply working out. And if apps aren’t your style, your phone by itself can be a useful tool.

I absolutely loved this article and found it to be very useful! Ways to use my smartphone to hold me accountable. My phone is on me 24/7, so I am always getting reminders and tracking my activity and eating. It has helped me a lot!

How to Quit Sugar

How to Quit Sugar | Health & fitness |
I am so sick of the "grab an apple when you want chocolate!" advice about sugar cravings. This obviously doesn't work -- when I want a brownie, a freaking handful of raisins just simply is not going to cut it.


I'm totally oversimplifying, but here is the basic idea: In Chinese health theory, all foods fall on a spectrum from Yin to Yang, with sugar being on the most extreme Yin end, and animal foods (meat, eggs) and salty foods on the extreme Yang end of the spectrum. As our bodies try to maintain equilibrium, if we eat too many foods on the far end of this seesaw, we then crave foods from the other end...

How much of Chinese health theory was used under Mao, when Chinese couldn't even feed themselves?

Research is providing a growing list of reasons that support mindulness and meditation as positive influence to our health and well-being. Attention to the present, greater calm in your daily activity, and positive emotion in your relations are a just a few that come to mind without even reading this article. 

I believe the greatest benefit is connectedness to self, others and our environment. This opens us up to creativity in our work, meaningful relations with those around us, and listening to our body and mind.

Be Well

(From the article): It helps you sleep better. We saved the best for last! A University of Utah study found that mindfulness training can not only help us better control our emotions and moods, but it can also help us sleep better at night. “People who reported higher levels of mindfulness described better control over their emotions and behaviors during the day. In addition, higher mindfulness was associated with lower activation at bedtime, which could have benefits for sleep quality and future ability to manage stress," study researcher Holly Rau said in a statement.

The True U.S. History of Human Medical Experimentation

The True U.S. History of Human Medical Experimentation | Health & fitness |

WARNING: What you are about to read is truly shocking. You have never been told this information by the American Medical Association, nor drug companies, nor the evening news.


You were never taught the truth about conventional medicine in public school, or even at any university. This is the dark secret of the U.S. system of medicine, and once you read the true accounts reported here, you may never trust drug companies again.


These accounts are deeply disturbing. We print them here not as a form of entertainment, but as a stern warning against what might happen to us and our children if we do not rein in the horrifying, inhumane actions of Big Pharma and modern-day psychiatry.

Como se ha visto en clase, a lo largo de la historia las minorías o las personas desfavorecidas de la sociedad han sido objeto de ensayos clínicos ilegales y brutales, sin ningún tipo de control, ya que este fue establecido a partir del llamado desastre de la talidomida.

In a book on Kaizen, the author gave the example of a lady who started "exercising" by standing up during commercials and eventually wound up walking regularly. Can't remember if she graduated to running, but I've heard of other people who did wind up running after such a small start.

Donald Rumsfeld (remember him?) used to stand almost all they long and had excellent health.
