“Your eyes are in excellent condition.”

That comment was followed by, “You do not need glasses.”

It had been over five years since I had my eyes checked, so I went. What she meant by not needing glasses is that I do not need ‘prescription’ lens glasses: readers will do fine. (Last time I was in I ended up with bifocal prescription lens glasses…)

At 63, eyes maybe better than five years ago, certainly not worse, that made my day.

(The doctor mentioned my age bracket. I asked the upper end of the bracket. She said about 65. She explained that eye sight usually worsens from the early 40s to about 65, but then does not worsen after that. So, if I can hold out a few more years…)

I thought of all of those people who say to me that JuicePlus+ is too expensive, or that the alkaline water they drink is like Kangen water, or that getting chiropractic care just isn’t a priority.

It isn’t just one thing, of course, but the accumulation of many small and not-so-small healthy choices that make the difference. That and being blessed:-)

I will keep taking my JuicePlus+.

More Active, More Better (Carrots and Sticks)

According to this new research you are five times more likely to die an early death if you are not active (the stick).

This is not new news, it is more news – same theme. ‘Eat less, move more’ has been around a while. ‘Sitting is the new smoking’ has been around a while. It is a fact that every Blue Zone population on the planet (the folks who figured out health and longevity, not to mention happiness), has known for a while.

What you do seems to matter less and less; the authorities are simply trying to get people to move more. Some people suggest that there is nothing they can think of that they would want to do, activity-wise. That is hard to believe.

As a fitness fanatic for over forty years, one of my favorite parts of helping patients get active is coming up with clever choices that fit within their range of physical capacities, and are something that they can and would like to do (they are willing to do). They may still sabotage the plan, but I am not a psychologist.

The beauty of physical activity is that if a person does get active, happy chemicals will take over (the carrot) and they will eventually develop the habit. That is the best kept secret of the healthy, happy, heavy breathers: happy chemicals. Don’t tell anyone!

Saturday’s Passeggiata

In April I wrote about getting healthy the Italian way with a walk after a meal. This is our walk in the Park after supper on Saturday with brother-in-law Philip Parry from Pheonix.

WHY NASAL BREATHING IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUNG ATHLETES

A great interview with the author of Oxygen Advantage, Patrick McKeown. (From TrainHeroic)

Earlier Posts on mouth breathing issues and nasal breathing benefits (including the one I titled, “Priority #1 Video (Breathing)” which is amazing).

It couldn’t get much more important than this.
