    Be a Tortoise, Not a Hare.

    You’ve heard the old saying: Slow and steady wins the race. Well, it may also burn more calories, at least in the long run.

    Researchers in Holland recently concluded that people who engage in moderate physical activity, such as walking and biking, had the highest overall physical activity levels.

    Their study of 30 men and women over a two-week period also revealed that those who exercised vigorously for short periods of time compensated for that activity by spending a greater part of their day being sedentary.

    Sure, vigorous exercise burns more calories, but the moderate exercisers tended to be more active overall.

    Walk Barefoot Along The Beach To Help Relieve Corns And Calluses.

    Corns and calluses are common foot conditions. They’re buildups of skin in response to abnormal pressure or friction on the foot. The difference between a corn and a callus is the location.

    Generally a corn is located on the top or tip of a toe. When located between toes, the buildup of skin is called a soft corn.

    Calluses are located on the bottom of the foot. Some degree of callus formation on the sole of the foot is normal, because it is our body’s way of protecting itself.

    If you’re near the coast, walking barefoot in the sand, particularly wet sand, is wonderful for your feet. It acts as an abrasive and sloughs off the dead skin that leads to corns and calluses.

    Flaxseeds – Use Them In Snacks To Help Lower Cholesterol.

    Soluble fibre binds with cholesterol, helping to remove it from the body. Certain fats, when replacing saturated and trans fats, can help lower cholesterol levels.

    One suggestion is to blend flaxseeds (ground) and psyllium seeds into smoothies. Or mix them into hot or cold cereal, or use them as a topping for yogurt.

    Use Old Tea Bags To Help Relieve Corns.

    Corns and calluses are common foot conditions. They’re build-ups of skin in response to abnormal pressure or friction on the foot. The difference between a corn and a callus is the location.

    Generally a corn is located on the top or tip of a toe. When located between toes, the build-up of skin is called a soft corn.

    Calluses are located on the bottom of the foot. Some degree of callus formation on the sole of the foot is normal, because it is our body’s way of protecting itself.

    To help relieve corns, try using used teabags. Don’t throw them away. Instead, tape a moist one on the corn for half an hour each day and the corn should be gone in a week or two.

    Try A Bloody Mary To Cure A Hangover.

    A virgin Bloody Mary is a classic hangover cure for a reason – tomato juice is high in fructose. Tomato and orange juice will help flush the toxins and replenish lost vitamin C.

    Make Soups With Broccoli And Cauliflower.

    Help your family get their five servings of fruit and vegetables pre day. Make soups with spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and other vegetables. Puree and add cheese on top for a tasty (and healthy) wintry day meal.

    Try Brussels Sprouts With Leeks And Mustard.

    Brussels sprouts are nature’s very own vitamin powerhouse – full of great health benefits. Sauté some sprouts with leeks in a little olive oil. Add a tablespoon or two of Dijon mustard after cooking.

    Beware Of Skin Cream Claims.

    Many skin care products claim to provide necessary nutrients such as proteins, minerals and vitamins.

    Unfortunately, most of the nutrients in skin creams do not penetrate deep enough to cause any structural changes in the skin.

    They may moisturize your skin and make it feel smoother temporarily, but don’t expect much more.

    Use Cod Liver Oil For Vitamin D.

    Cod liver oil is a very good source of vitamin D and is also rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

    Omega-3 in particular has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation in arthritis and to slow the process of joint damage.

    Bothered By Overhead Fluorescent Lights?

    If you’re bothered by your office’s overhead fluorescent light, why not switch to a desk lamp with an energy efficient lightbulb.

    Soup Can Count Towards Your Daily Water Intake.

    You know you should be drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated, but did you know you can get some of those recommended 8 to 12 (8-ounce or 250 ml) glasses per day from foods and beverages?

    Certain foods have a ‘high water’ content that can contribute to your daily fluid requirement. And they are low in calories, so they’ll help fill you up on less.

    For example, a serving of soup provides 3/4 cup of fluid. But be sure to choose low-salt varieties (look for those with 5% or less sodium per serving). Or make your own soups using fresh veggies and broth.

    When Dieting, Try To Take Small Steps.

    When starting on a diet, try to take small steps and work on one thing at a time. For example, if you normally skip breakfast, make a pledge to eat something healthy in the morning five out of seven days a week.

    Make this your only goal until you have it down pat. Then move onto the next thing. Trying to do too much at once can leave you feeling overwhelmed, and you will be more likely to abandon the effort altogether.
