Most people who adopt a healthy lifestyle know that good digestion is a key factor in the body’s absorption of nutrients. It may seem like a contradiction, but one of the best things we can do to help ensure efficient digestion is by eating fiber, which is dietary material that resists being broken down by enzymes in the intestines.
You may have circled a couple of red-letter days on your end-of-year calendar – “red” as in “stressful” – but we all know that’s a miscalculation. It’s not just a couple of anxiety-making November and December holidays. People are coping with an extraordinarily stressful two-month-long holiday season.
The minute people hear the word “food,” panic often sets in. That’s because the word conjures up having to wash, prepare, cook and then plate it. With many people’s hectic schedules taking a toll, lunch and dinner often mean having a meal delivered or picking one up. That way, the only obligations involve unpacking and tossing the wrapping.
Whether you savor and your tea by clutching a hot steaming mug, or think refreshing thoughts with an icy-cold glass of it in your hand, tea is more than just liquid refreshment.
There’s often a ritual associated with brewing a cup, and the purpose of that ceremony changes from day to day, and mood to mood. Taking time to honor those moments can help give us perspective, stamina and resilience.
After the cold of winter, sprigs of greenery holding the promise of colorful, cheerful flowers can’t come fast enough. But if your patience is wearing thin, there’s a way to tide you over while you wait for the seasons to fully change —add some “green” supplements to your regimen!
