long base

We can’t prevent aging — but we can age optimally
================================

Aging is actually the No.1 risk factor for a lot of things you don’t want to have. And we can’t prevent aging, we can do a lot to ensure that we age optimally. It means reducing the effects of the “Four Culprits of Aging” that systematically break down our bodies, damage our tissues and organs, age us from within and contribute to every degenerative disease known to humankind.

“The Four Culprits of Aging”
=================

1. Sugar sends your “fat-storing” hormones (insulin) into over drive and contributes to aging and disease in multiple ways.

2. Stress causes the release of hormones (such as cortisol) which impair thinking and memory.

3. Inflammation is the starting point for heart disease and is a big factor in cancer, diabetes, obesity, dementia and Alzheimer’s.

4. Oxidation is damage from free radicals that can impact your sex life, the appearance of your skin and the condition of your brain.
Luckily, there are a number of steps we can take to reduce the damage.

Anti-aging Tips
=========

• Exercise every day

Exercise for 30 to 45 minutes a day as simple as brisk walking has been shown reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and depression.

• Include these supplements

1. CoQ10 is fuel for the heart.
2. Curcumin is an antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory.
3. Vitamin D benefits are unthinkable.
4. Magnesium helps relax blood vessel walls.
5. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory and benefits the brain and heart.

• Include these four super foods

Take berries, dark chocolate, beans and nuts on heavy rotation in your diet. These super foods are amazing and causes innumerable anti-aging benefits.

• Take these three drinks

Green tea, pomegranate juice and the most important water. Green tea is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-cancer and pro- weight loss! Israeli researchers call pomegranate juice a “Natural Viagra”. Drink-up! One study has proven that five or more glasses of water a day could help reduce the risk for heart disease by 53%, comparison with those drinking two or less a day.

• Reduce stress

Stress is the cause of every disease. It damage the brain and causes weight-gain. The best way to reduce stress is meditation. Even deep breathing for few minutes does the job!

Your Guide To Quick Decision Making

5

Analyzing can affect your decision making, employ intuition:

Read this paragraph:

i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

It is amazing how easily you can make-out words with information that is garbled, ambiguous or incomplete. We are designed to straighten out the miscues, and find the hidden meanings. Similar is valid for our innate ability to make decisions.

The 80/20 Rule:
• 80% of profits come from 20% of customers.
• 80% of traffic jam is on 20% of roads.

Following the 80/20 Rule to your thinking can aid you make intelligent decision much faster.

Mostly, you can comprehend 80% of the relevant information in the first 20% of the time available. Therefore, the remaining 20% of the data would not substantially enhance the quality of your decision. The intuition is normally good enough to fill in the gaps and organize the data, just as it did in the nonsense paragraph above.

Here’s how you might apply the 80/20 Rule to your next decision. Primarily, notice the top 5 pieces of information you require to make the decision. Afterwards, choose which 4 out 5 pieces of information pieces are of highest priority. Once you have identified and collected this information, you will have roughly 80% of the information you require. The last 20 % is less substantial. Now harness all of your intuition and your experience to fill in the blanks and make a intelligent decision—faster than ever.

It’s high time to quit analyzing and, instead, start following your intuition.

How to fall asleep naturally!

t

Are you having trouble sleeping? If Yes then ask yourself following questions:

1) Were you racing around all day and haven’t had a moment of down time?

Your mind needs time to process the day and relax before you hit the hay. Try building in 1 hour of down time before you go to sleep with no technology. Develop a ritual for yourself that you enjoy. Straighten up or lay out things for the next day, spend time with loved ones and read a book.

2) Did you have caffeine or an energy drink in the afternoon?

If you are reading this late night, then drink water to flush your body and have something that makes you sleepy. For some this is bread or diary. Chicken, which has tryptophan, can also make you sleepy. In the future, try not having energy drinks or caffeine after 11 am.

3) Are you stressed about all you have to do tomorrow?

Keep a pad of paper by your bed and write out a list of everything that needs to be done. Keep it in order of importance and plan it out over the week. This will set your mind at ease so you can sleep.

4) Anxiety problem?

If you are feeling anxiety then write a gratitude note. Write out 5 things you are grateful for each night, before you turn out the light. Bonus: this may also give you great dreams!

5) Are you so excited about your life that you can’t sleep?

Do something grounding and a bit boring. Do your finances, organize something, or read a book. That should do it.

Stay healthy!

Research proves that a healthy Mediterranean diet helps you to live longer and is also effective in weight reduction. Life expectancy was high, in patients having Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

The Mediterranean diet plan was abundant in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and fiber.

• Lean red meat was eaten only a few times a month.

• Whole eggs were served several times a week, often used in whole grain baked goods.

• Dairy products were consumed daily in small amounts, mainly as yogurt and cheese.
