Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Author, Speaker, Nurse, Fitness Trainer and very passionate about healthy living.
Follow me on my journey: meeting, yesterday at 11 AM; on time, doors closed, checked invite, 11:30 AM. Now what? First, I felt frustrated, waisted 30 min, two deep breaths, sat on the bench, used time wisely.
What would you do in this situation?
How would you react?
How would it affect you Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically and Mentally?
Just thinking about it, do you feel a shift in your body and your mind?
Now what are your options:
frett over it, get angry, frustrated, walk away, wait patiently and use the time efficiently, get some work done, take notes..
This is how this BTR came about, as this exact episode happened to me yesterday. I was at the destination on time only to find out that the Restaurant did not open for another 30 min.
Used time efficiently, writing my BTR and lovely conversation with guests. I felt that big shift within me from frustration to peace, serenity.
We can quite often change the outcome just by accepting it, taking a deep breath, and thinking positive, doing sth that soothes us and we feel good about getting it done. It's like getting twice as much accomplished than first intended. What a great feeling.

Do you learn something new each and every day?

How can we stimulate our brain, so we won't get Alzheimer's or Dementia early in our lives?
Speaking from personal experience with F-I-L who lived with us until he passed away:
Be active daily
Be around people daily, forces you to communicate, to listen, to think, to talk, all brain stimulated activities.
Sufficient hydration, mostly water:
Read or be read to, watch TV, interaction, go outside, protect your skin,
Take courses, seminars, classes, art classes, languages, music, etc.

Sleep Apnea - Overview & Facts
Never in my life did I think I had Sleep Apnea. However, my dentist asked me to take a Sleep Apnea test to find out why I have dry mouth? Honestly, I did not see a relation between the two, but..
What is Sleep Apnea?
How does Sleep Apnea fit into E.S.P.M.?
How can it be detected and diagnosed?
Why do so many people have this sleep disorder?
How does it manifest itself?
anatomy of breathing pattern
Symptoms of possible sleep apnea:
High blood pressure
Pre-diabetes and diabetes
Why do people with sleep apnea have longer and stronger Jet Lag when crossing over 2 time zones?
Jet lag is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder...
Jet lag can be worsened by:
- sleep loss due to travel
- spending a long time sitting, uncomfortable
- caffeine and alcohol use
- Air pressure or poor air quality
Do you see how it has to do with mental, physical and emotional health?
When in doubt, get tested.
ex.: class, small appliance, returned it today, test with a bigger aparatus, wear overnight & return tomorrow. The Dept is recording. Dr. knew things I never shared re: my sleep pattern.
Any of the above symptoms, get tested.

Amazing Facts re: Nutrition
Nutrition belongs to E.S.P.M., as it has a huge impact on our mental and physical health.
Many years ago: no transportation, stores, gyms,
worked with hand-made tools, physical labor, during day light, sleeping during the night.
They ate what they found, grew, hunted, lived long and healthy lives.
At their time: no grains, rice, potatoes, sugar infused foods, something we eat now almost daily. They ate saturated fats. Article written by George Dvorsky 6/11/12: whole grains are extremely unhealthy, sugar is far worse than we previously thought.
Many years ago, no processed foods, hybride foods, milk products, etc., ate fresh vegetables, fruits, meat and nuts.
Change in eating habits:
Paleo Diet, advocates on eating unprocessed foods like lean meat, seafood, roots, tubers, fruits, and vegetables. Our body is used to those foods, digests them better and gets more nutrition per calorie than the typical Neolithic and processed foods.
Paleo advocates believe that gluten is a nasty weapon in our body. All humans react poorly to gluten. Robb Wolf compares this effect to having poison oak lining our intestinal walls.
I am eating mostly vegetables, fruits, and cashews. I am staying away from sweets, milk- and high gluten products.

Maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Jon Kabat-Zinn created a MBSR program (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, 1979).

How to Cultivate Mindfulness?
Jon Kabat-Zinn emphasizes that althought mindfulness can be cultivated through formal meditation, that's not the only way. Watch the "this Greater Good video".
Pay close attention to your breathing, especially when you are feeling intense emotions.

Why is it so important to live an Emotionally, Spiritually, Physically and Mentally balanced life? It doesn't matter where I look I see articles, slogans, commercials, you name it, all of them referring to a balanced life style. I know it's true that when one is talking about something, one sees it being presented more often. The same with cars. Before I drove a Prius, I barely ever saw one. Now that I am driving a Plug-in Hybrid Prius, I see them all over, more than not.
Why is that so? Are we conditioned to pay more attention to what we have or what we want? Are we the reason that trends get picked up so quickly so that they spiral out of control?
It was yesterday that I was asked on a radio show, why super foods are so "important" or trendy these days. I just found so many articles while searching on Google varying from 11 - 100 superfoods in lists and mention. Why don't you google Superfoods?
Are they really healthier than regular foods?
What is the very best and healthiest diet for us to be balanced E.S.P.M.?
I am sure that you are aware that certain foods cause a sugar crash, or a suger high for a short while than a crash! Are these foods healthy? Can we solve that problem by consuming them in moderation?
How do we know what's good for us and what is not?
in Pop Culture
