How You Can Slip Exercise into Your Everyday Routines

Many people say that they simply don’t have the time to exercise. While this may be perfectly true in a fast paced world, there are certain things you can do to incorporate exercise into your daily life without allotting much time for it.

 

When it comes to exercise, it all starts with a good attitude and a little bit of action each day. It’s a common misconception to believe that you need to engage in strict dieting or lengthy and vigorous exercise routines in order to stay in shape. It simply isn’t true!

 

Try some of these tips in order to slip exercise into your daily routine:

  1. Take the Stairs. No matter where you are, there are many times when you can opt to take the stairs instead of an elevator. Whether you’re attending an important business meeting, or just going to the mall, take the stairs.
  1. Go for a Walk. Walking is a great way to get extra exercise and most of the time it doesn’t feel like exercise at all. If you were planning to meet with a friend, ask them if they’d like to go for a walk while you talk. Alternatively, you can go for walk when you just need to sort some of your thoughts. Besides, getting some extra blood to the brain will actually help you think clearer.

  1. Play with Your Children. If you have children, it’s likely that you have at least a part of your day dedicated to their care. Decide that you’re going to engage in active games like outdoor sports. You can even do this with pets too. It’ll be a fun and relaxing source of exercise!

  1. Jog in Place. Jogging in place might seem like a boring activity, but when you combine it with something else that you’re doing, it can be quite invigorating. There are bound to be short bursts of time that you can use to relieve tension and get the blood pumping.

  1. Ride Your Bike. If you’re traveling a short distance, it’s a good idea to take your bike, instead of the car or bus. While it may add some time to your overall travel time, it’s a great way to stay in shape if you can spare a few extra minutes.
  1. Active Dates. Whether you’d like to schedule a date with a partner, friend, or family member, you can definitely choose an activity with exercise. Instead of going to a movie, go dancing. You could even try something like rock climbing or attending the batting cages. Get creative and have a blast!
  1. Lift Weights. You can multitask while lifting weights as well. Lift while you’re brainstorming, watching TV, or talking on the phone. You may also want to keep the weights at your desk as a reminder to use them.
  1. Park Far Away. You don’t need the stress of fighting for the closest parking spot. Instead, travel a little further and walk! There’s little stress involved with this decision and it’ll probably save you some time, too.
  1. Try Outdoor Chores. If you don’t already participate in outdoor chores, you could be helping your house and yourself by engaging in them. You might even be saving your family some money if you’ve previously hired the neighbor’s kids. Mow your lawn, do some weeding, or take up gardening – it’s a simple way to stay fit!

Keep Moving

It doesn’t take long to realize that, with the proper attitude, you can still remain active while you’re busy with other things. Sometimes you may end up taking a little extra time to do routine tasks, but your body will thank you for it.

Just take these simple, small actions each day and you’ll soon reap the rewards!

PREVENT Back Pain with these Simple Lifestyle Changes

PREVENT Back Pain with these Simple Lifestyle Changes

About four out of five Americans suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. It can take many forms. Lower back pain, however, is the most common. Fortunately, there are many simple lifestyle changes you can make to avoid an aching back.

Daytime Lifestyle Changes

1. Maintain a healthy body weight. Being overweight strains your back and disrupts your balance. Abdominal fat is especially problematic. Your midsection will usually slim down along with the rest of your body when you lose excess pounds.

2. Exercise regularly. Yoga is a great way to improve your posture and flexibility. It can also strengthen your muscles. Physical activity can help fight inflammation by increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to your spine.

3. Eat more calcium. Strong bones help protect you from osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a leading cause of back pain, especially for women. Eat your yogurt and leafy green vegetables like spinach or kale.

4. Follow safety guidelines at work. Back injuries are the most common type of workplace injuries. Talk with your employer about job design features that will keep you productive and safe.

5. Practice good posture. Make it a habit to press your lower abdomen against your spine. Keep your shoulders held back and relaxed. Hold your head up.

6. Sit correctly. Try to use an adjustable chair that will give you all the support you need. Prop a pillow against your lower back if needed. Keep your knees a little higher than your hips. Change positions or take a brief walk frequently.

7. Lift safely. Bend down at the knees and lift with your legs to avoid putting the whole load on your back. Carry heavy objects close to your body. Get help if an object is too heavy for you to lift alone.

8. Dress comfortably. Stiletto heels and heavy handbags can cause knee and back pain. So can overstuffing your pockets or wearing anything two sizes too small. Enjoy dressing up for special occasions but ensure your everyday wardrobe allows a full range of movement and your tote bag stays under 10 percent of your body weight.

Nighttime Lifestyle Changes

1. Select the right mattress for you. A moderately firm mattress usually works best. It adapts to the natural curves of your spine. If you have a firm mattress, an inch or two of padding on top may help.

2. Sleep on your side. Sleeping on your side with your knees slightly bent helps protect your back. Even better, put a small pillow between your knees to keep your hips aligned.

3. Sleep on your back. Sleeping on your back is also good. Place a small pillow under your knees to maintain the curve in your lower back.

4. Stop sleeping on your stomach. Lying on your stomach puts extra stress on your back. To break the habit, lie on your side and use pillows between your knees. This aligns your spine better. It relieves loading on your spine and supports your spine.

5. Avoid alcohol. You may fall asleep faster by drinking alcohol.  However, it impairs the quality of your sleep. You are likely to wake up with aches and pains. Some prescription medications may also interfere with sleep.

6. Apply heat. A heat pack is an easy and safe way to keep a little ache from growing into a big one. Get a hot water bottle or a heat pack that you can microwave. This can be applied to any sore spot . I do want to note that microwaveable heat pads do not retain heat long enough. You may end up going back to heat it up over and over. A commercial plug-in heat pad like this one is available on Amazon.

I refer my patients to Amazon, Walgreens, Target, or Walmart to get one. It is preferable to have one an automatic shut-off to ensure safety.

(I am not an affiliate of Amazon or the seller and do not receive compensation for this feature in my article.)

It is imperative to see a doctor if you feel any numbness or tingling. This is more so, if you experience severe or chronic pain.  These self-help techniques will give you effective relief and keep the pain from recurring.

Falls in the Elderly: A Rising Epidemic

Falls in the Elderly: A Rising Epidemic

 
 
FALLS IN THE ELDERLY CONTINUE TO RISE. IT IS DEVASTATING. The implications of falls have long been brought to light by researchers and statisticians alike. The economic impact upon the government is staggering.
 
The estimated cost to treat injuries sustained from these falls is estimated to exceed $50 billion dollars from the year 2015 and may reach $67.7 billion in the year 2020. Furthermore, Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.
 

ALARMING FACTS ACCORDING TO THE CDC(Center for Disease Prevention) as reported by the NCOA (National Council On Aging)

Couple, Handicap, Wheelchair
 
  • One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
  • Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
  • Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments annually, including over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths.
  •  
    The enormity of the problem has prompted diverse programs involving over 70 national organizations involved in Fall prevention, The Falls Free National Action Plan by the NCOA.
 
The plan includes action steps of reducing the impact of medications as a risk factor, promoting physical mobility, and improving home safety. Fall risk assessment and screenings, promoting evidence-based programs also is a major component of this national initiative.
 
More Fall Prevention Programs have surfaced and a majority of these promote exercise programs designed to reduce falls in the elderly. Tai Chi has been widely recognized as an effective exercise program for fall prevention.
 
As released by the CDC in a PDF Form on its principles and why:(Source: CDC.gov)
 
 
Tai Chi Principles for Falls Prevention in Older People
 
The following notes are suggestions for incorporation into a Tai Chi program specifically targeting fall prevention in older people.
 
BALANCE 
The key element in preventing a fall. Balance has been shown to decrease with age; however, some aspects of balance can be enhanced through training.
 
Key elements to incorporate into a Tai Chi program:
Tai Chi, Taiji, Martial, Qi Gong, Qigong
 
Relaxation
> relaxes muscles > lowers the center of gravity Lowered center of gravity > increases load on lower limbs > over time increases sensation and awareness of lower limb movement.
 
• Transfer of Weight:
Shifting body weight from leg to leg through incremental movements. Start with a small range of movement and gradually build up to a wide, square base stance.
 
 Muscle strength
Muscle bulk and therefore strength decrease with age. A bent-knee stance and movement work to strengthen lower limb muscle (particularly the quadriceps muscles) (however, always work to an individual’s limitations. If a bent knee stance is too difficult, then do the movement without bent knees).
 
• Instability
This involves issues such as increased body sway, low mobility, and postural instability. Increasing age is also associated with reduced sensation in lower limbs and is consequently associated with a loss of righting reflexes and an increase in body sway, which can lead to falls.
 
o Gait:
Decreased stepping height and decreased stride length. Women tend to have a narrow walking and standing base, closer foot placement, erect posture > difficulty stepping down from stools/benches. Men tend to have a small-stepped gait, wider walking and standing base, and stooped posture.
 
Tai Chi addresses gait problems by teaching the “correct” movement of lower limbs. This is done by lifting lower limbs from the knee rather than the foot; lifting lower limbs without misaligning the pelvis, and teaching to place heel down first when moving forward (toes first when moving back). Also, teaching movement with appropriate weight transfer, posture, and slightly bent knees improves stride length
 
 Posture:
Tai Chi also teaches participants to maintain a relaxed posture with an elongated spine.
 
• Coordination/Mobility:

Tai Chi consists of moving from one stance to another in a slow, coordinated, and smooth way. This trains students in improved mobility and increased body awareness. 

 


It is based upon these principles that I developed the Prime Motionz Exercise for Balance and Health.

THE CBD REVOLUTION: AYE OR NAY?

Now available on Kindle, Paperback, Audiobooks, Audible, Itunes & Spanish Version

EXCERPTS FROM THIS SHORT READ BOOK

NEWSFLASH: In May of this year, 2019, a great-grandmother was arrested. Where? Disney. Magic Kingdom, Florida. It was a deputy for Orange County, who found CBD oil on her purse. This grandma has been using CBD oil to manage pain in her joints from arthritis.

The irony: CBD oil is available in stores in Florida all across the state. If you plan to visit the Sunshine State anytime and you are a CBD oil user, be warned.

FACTS: 

drop of CBD oil, is a felony, in Florida, unless prescribed by a qualified physician. Possession of 19.9 grams of a marijuana leaf, in Florida, is only a first-degree misdemeanor.
Do all these potential risks worth carrying a small bottle of this oil to calm down anxiety for the flight or sleeplessness? It’s a tough call.

-In Maine, hemp growing is legalized just recently. This also prompted farmers to add hemp growing to their staple produce grown in addition to corn and soybeans.
-In Michigan, as a pilot program, the state registered and licensed 572 growers who proposed to plant a little over 32,000 acres of hemp. It is only recently that these farmers harvested the hemp crop for the first time. (10/2019)

In conclusion, CBD оіl is useful for so many different аіlmеntѕ thаt іt is a wоndеr thаt it іѕ still ѕо соntrоvеrѕіаl.
At thіѕ tіmе іt is lеgаl in the following 15 states

MEDICAL MARIJUANA: The Controversy of Medical Cannabis

The Controversy 

There has always been a stigma to marijuana use.
 
Mеdiсаl marijuana, also known as mеdiсаl саnnаbiѕ is used for trеаting patients who suffer frоm various ѕеriоuѕ and lifе thrеаtеning diѕеаѕеѕ. 
 
It is used fоr hеrbаl аnd medical thеrару. Sinсе the ѕtаtе government legalized cannabis for medical use and trеаtmеnt, lots оf things wеrе ѕаid оn thiѕ lеgаlizаtiоn. Sоmе аrе in fаvоr of this mаrijuаnа lеgаlizаtiоn, while оthеrѕ hаvе different opinions аbоut it.
 
However, this dеbаtе may not come to an end. Between activist groups, legislators and medical rеѕеаrсhers who lock horns, the issue persists. The good thing about it, however, is that continued studies are being conducted so hopefully someday, we will know more about the pros and cons of medical cannabis.
 
 It is a fact that current studies have moderate evidence on benefits or dangers. There is so much involved in conducting these studies and marijuana being a schedule 1 substance, regulatory restrictions are impediments to research advancement.
 
 Studies mention that medical cannabis is one option and alternative treatment for patients whо ѕuffеr from HIV/AIDS, саnсеr, Alzheimer’s & Pаrkinѕоn’ѕ аnd mаnу mоrе diѕеаѕеs.
 
For someone who is in pain and suffering from an affliction, a moment of relief today may be a more welcome option than the hope of a cure tomorrow.

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT USES OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA?

1.      Mаrijuаnа physicians рrераrе it as a liquid fоr drinking.
2.      Most health рrоfеѕѕiоnаlѕ believe pot is mоrе еffесtivе when it iѕ consumed.

To review: Mаrijuаnа iѕ also knоwn аѕ роt, grass аnd wееd but its fоrmаl nаmе is cannabis. 
 
It comes from the lеаvеѕ and flоwеrѕ оf thе рlаnt Cannabis ѕаtivа. It is соnѕidеrеd an illegal substance in thе US аnd mаnу соuntriеѕ аnd роѕѕеѕѕiоn оf marijuana iѕ a crime рuniѕhаblе by lаw.
