easy steps to freedom

(tags: wisdom, freedom, advertising, alienation)  Thought for the day: Why does nearly everyone on the supermarket look confused, impatient, lost, oblivious to those around them? Why do they look angry when they get in their £23,000, black, 4 wheel drive, aggressive Shopping Trolley? examples: Because they have been taken over by advertising. Walking to the shop, buying what you

Quick route to fitness, health: exercise

Two reports in today's news build on the BBC documentary of last year - which showed brief bouts of high intensity exercise having great health benefits.

diets don't work - bar one

Painless diet that works It is sad to see people stressing themselves with arduous diet plans for years (decades) and seeing no permanent change for the better. I don't have the funds for 'research' but several observations clearly mean something. Overeating often implies comfort eating or boredom. Very often the two go together. I have seen many people lose several stone and achieve their

Penny Smiths Essential Guide To Yoga

I first bought this DVD about 18 months ago, having benefitted from Yoga for decades, then promptly forgotten all about it! Realising that I needed more flexibility and less back ache, I resolved to start again, and this DVD is excellent. It isn't only the content. The presentation is relaxing and encourages daily practice. Reviews on Amazon are generally as positive as mine, so I have no

longevity in Sicily

There was a very good documentary on ITV about the high number of centenarians, in good health, in a small town in Sicily. Their Mediterranean diet has had a good press for some time, but this video also focussed on their activity levels. Most families seemed to have the ground to grow lots of their own food, including small livestock. One thing they didn't mention, which was hidden in plain

Diet and obesity

Research reported by cell.com: http://bit.ly/1MrvqJy shows that not all types of calorie restriction are equal. Cutting fat intake resulted in greater fat reduction in the participants than cutting carbohydrates. In the reduced fat intake diet, calories were metabolised by both fat and carbohydrate sources in equal measure. This is interesting research, but hardly prescribes a full solution for

wellbeing through exercise ... for your dog

For you Marty (and your Pooch) a post about repaying our favourite pets:http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_28551811/benefits-exercise-petsMost of this advice seems to be as important for people, especially after age 50. Example:A dog's legs and spinal joints are only as stable as the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that cross these joints. For example, if muscle mass is lost in the hamstrings,

diet, insulin resistance and Alzheimers

Interesting and alarming research published by experimental neurologists demonstrates a link between insulin resistance (typically increased by Western diet and insufficient exercise) and memory impairment. The study's authors conclude: Our results show that insulin resistance, a prevalent and increasingly common condition in developed countries, is associated with significantly lower regional
