Did You Know?

Hidden Sugars in Ingredient Lists

The secret for a longer life can be found in the Blue Zones.

Blue Zones are regions around the world where people live significantly longer and healthier lives than average.

One of the key lifestyle characteristics contributing to the remarkable longevity of people in these areas, such as Okinawa and Sardinia, is regular physical activity. 

Daily routines naturally include physical movement, whether it’s gardening, walking, or performing traditional dances. 

This consistent activity not only strengthens the body but also enhances cardiovascular health and mental well-being, all of which can significantly extend life expectancy.

Incorporating similar routines into our daily lives might just be the secret to a longer, healthier life.

Good For You

If your hips feel locked up, making it hard to walk, try incorporating this yoga stretch into your day.

This move will stretch the muscles around the hip and help lubricate the joint, restoring lost range of motion and relieving pain and discomfort.

How to do it?

Start on your hands and knees.
Send one leg to the side.
Move your hands slightly forward.

Swing your hips backward until you feel the stretch in the hip area.
Then, swing your body forward and repeat X10 reps per side.

It’s best to perform this stretch first thing in the morning and again at the end of the day.

Nutrition 101

Ever heard of eating until you're 80% full?

It's a game-changer for managing your weight and boosting your health without sticking to a rigid diet.

Basically, the idea is to stop eating just before you feel completely full, giving your brain the chance to catch up and realize you're actually satisfied.

In Okinawa, Japan, which is famous for its many centenarians, they live by "Hara Hachi Bu."

It's a phrase they say before meals to remind themselves to stop eating at 80% fullness.

By adopting this simple habit, you can tune into your body's cues more effectively and avoid overeating.

Why not give it a try next time you dine?
It might just be the nudge your lifestyle needs!
