Most people know that the immune system defends the body against infections, viruses, cancer cells, fungi and other parasites. What is less realized is that an unhealthy immune system speeds up the ageing process and is a major factor in fatigue. A well-functioning immune system is vitally important for overall health. As we emerge from summer to winter, the seasonal change can often bring an increased vulnerability to infections and illness. There is a lot you can do to improve the “terrain” and strengthen resistance.
With holiday season upon us, it is easy to get down on our body image. Many people gain an average of ten pounds during the holidays. With all of the delicious foods and beverages, it is easy to see why. I recently had my 41st birthday in November and many of my gifts were treats that I don’t eat regularly. Usually I will eat some and give the rest away. Sometimes I will eat it all. The difference now is that I am kind to myself regardless of what choice I make. I am a lot healthier for it.
It has been a while since creating a new blog post. For that, I apologize. Not that I am the most important person in your world to pay attention to, but I do feel as though I can provide some good information to like-minded individuals. So here's what has been on my mind this week.
So today I found myself crawling through a tiny window.
Yes, it’s true. CRAWLING THROUGH A TINY WINDOW.
My friend locked her keys in the house and a locksmith would take more than an hour. So we said, “hey, we can do this”. Any woman in her 40’s can crawl through a window for Pete’s sake. Right? What could be so hard about that?
Well, I’ll tell you. My friend is about 5’8” and I’m 5’, so by default I became the window ninja. She found a ladder and some tools in the open shed while I looked for an open window.
