Health Benefits of a Simple Life

Associated Weavers
I was surprised to see after researching on it that living a simple life has lots of health benefits. And I believe it is a must adjunct to regular workouts and healthy eating habits. If you want to be really healthy, you must start living a simple life.

One way of living simply is sleeping better. Trying to beat deadlines and accomplish too many tasks at a time can ruin healthy sleeping habits. All that stress destroys your "appetite" to sleep at night. I'm telling you, if your sleep is ruined, then all hell breaks loose. Your immune system is down and then diseases set in. All abnormalities in your blood chem start convulsing.

Here are simple workouts I did to get fit and healthy. Click here.

I can stop here---better sleep. You get this everyday and you're on your way to tiptop health. And it's all possible only if you simplify your life. Cut out too much exposure to the TV, PC, CP (cellphone) and DVD. Get rid of that gadget addiction. In fact, cut out everything unnecessary. Make a lifestyle inventory and get rid of all the clutter.

Then there is the ADD problem (Attention Deficit Disorder) that a simple life can remedy. If you're too stimulated during the day (multi-tasking is a fad today, for instance, and people are just proud when they drown themselves in it), you may become candidate to ADD. That means pressure and stress can ruin your immune system and make you an easy target for deadly diseases. It can also trigger weight gain easily, too.

If you're too busy your attention span keeps getting shorter or weaker, then simplify your life. Or else, you might suffer ADD, and that's a definite minus.

A simple life is also a must for a healthy spiritual life. You cannot tell people how Jesus invites all who are tired to his rest if you yourself look so exhausted and stressed out. You have to check out your lifestyle if you want genuine spiritual health.

I'd start living simply from now on if I were you.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits?

Up to now, I see lots of folks who do not know the right way of eating fruits. I hate to see good, fresh fruits all go to waste and worse, actually harm the body.

Sometimes, I even see supposedly health buffs eat fruits the wrong way. And I'm shocked. I'd like to share with them the right way to eat fruits but I dread offending them---they're supposed to be experts.

Fresh fruits are good, to be sure. But if eaten wrongly they can rot in the intestine and actually produce deadly toxins there, ruining your health instead of helping it. Imagine buying costly fresh fruits only to poison your body with it.

Always remember this---eat fresh fruits first. Always. Before you put anything in your tummy, put fresh fruits first. And then eat your veggies. And then your fish and meat. A lot of people treat fruits as dessert---which is dead wrong.

Why?

If you eat fish and meat first (and fruits later), these things take 72 hours (3 days) to digest. So, if fruits wait last in line, they…
