In “Fighting Aging” it is our Mind and Body that are Aging. For “Fighting Aging” for my Mind I renew my Mind daily in the Word of God. For “Fighting Aging” for my Body my Focus is my Core, my pH and my Gut. In another e-mails I receive it states “Exercise not only benefits the Body, but it also benefits the Brain.” This e-mail is from “Mercola.com.” Dr. Mercola states:
Scientists have linked physical exercise to brain health for many years.
In fact, there’s compelling evidence that physical exercise helps build a brain that not only resists shrinkage, but increases cognitive abilities by promoting neurogenesis, i.e. your brain’s ability to adapt and grow new brain cells.
In essence, physical activity produces biochemical changes that strengthen and renew not only your body but also your brain — particularly areas associated with memory and learning.
The converse is also true. Researchers have shown a sedentary lifestyle correlates to brain shrinkage, which increases your risk of memory loss and other cognitive problems.
This “Health Tip” from “Healing With Nutrition” adds to that:
Studies show that age-related memory loss is not automatic, even if there is a family history. Adequate levels of nutrients, daily exercise, continued stimulation of the mind, and a sense of life purpose can prevent dementia and age-related memory impairment. It is never too early to focus on keeping the brain healthy, so consider what you could be doing now to assure healthy brain function throughout your life.
It is so Important to have a Strong Core. Everything begins with our Core. People have Three Cores. Our first Core is our Spirit. Our second Core is the Core Principles of our Mind and our third Core is the Core in our Body.
Our first Core is the Holy Spirit and what makes people the image of God. The Bible is Food for our Spirit. It is so Important for people to be in the Word of God daily. Think of NOT being in the Word of God daily as the Holy Spirit missing meals. Think about how you would feel if you were missing meals. The Word of God is what keeps the Holy Spirit Built Up. The Holy Spirit Cannot Fight For and Direct us if He is not Built Up.
The Image of God means people have the Mind of Christ. Our Mind produces what we feed it. If people feed their Mind with negatives that is what their Mind will produce. On the other hand, if people feed their Mind with positives that is what their Mind will produce. To take that to the next Level if people feed their Mind with Truth people will know what Truth is and also be able to recognize what is NOT Truth. There is no better Truth than the Word of God. The Word of God is where people get their Core Principles from for their Mind.
The Core of our Body supports our entire body. Our Core connects the upper and lower body together. There are 29 Muscles in the Core of a person’s body. These muscles work our legs and arms and moves our body in different directions. The Back and Abdominals work together to support the spine and is how people are able to do daily activities like sitting, standing, bending over, pick things up and Exercising to name a few. Strengthening our Core is vital to improving balance and stability. It also helps reduce falling and helps improve posture, which makes Strengthening our Core even more important as we age. Without a strong Core other muscles have to pick up the slack, which weakens the other muscles causing injuries and reduces overall functionality.
People actually start “Aging” from the day they are born. That is why it is so Important to start “Fighting Aging” early in life. That “Aging” starts to Accelerate and Escalate around 35. Weight Gain is another “Fighting Aging” people must address. Weight Gain also starts to Accelerate and Escalate around 35. That Acceleration and Escalation has nothing to do with food intake. Even if people are eating the same amount of food their weight will still start to Accelerate and Escalate. People will try to eat less to stop the weight gain, which does not help either. The Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the calories our bodies need for basic functions like breathing and cell repair. This is the RMR Formula:
Male: 66 + (6.35 x body weight in pounds) + (12.9 x height in inches) - (6.8 x age in years)
Female: 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years)
If people continue not getting at least the number of calories they need for their RMR their body will go into Starvation Mode where the body drops the metabolic rate. In Starvation Mode the body holds onto everything especially weight to protect itself. That is why this weight gain must be Counteracted. Exercise is the only thing that will Counteract this Weight Gain Acceleration and Escalation. As far as Exercise goes simple Walking is hard to beat. People walking outside have the added bonus of Vitamin D from the sun. This e-mail article titled, “10 Amazing Benefits Of Walking” from “MyFitnessPal” states:
Walking is not only the simplest form of exercise that almost everyone can do, it’s also a free activity that can aid in weight loss and maintenance. But you might not know that walking also helps:
1. Sharpen your brain.
Walking for exercise may become increasingly important as we age and our risk for dementia and other brain disorders increases. It can even help reverse the effects of aging. One study published in the Annals of Neurology found that the 69 participants ages 55 to 88 who met the exercise guidelines set by the American Heart Association showed a significantly lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Want to improve your cognition even more? Try walking backward. One Dutch study found that walking backward helped subjects literally think faster on their feet. Incorporating specific mind-enhancing moves into your workout — such as moving in certain patterns with coordinated arm movements — can also boost the brain benefits of walking.
2. Strengthen your bones.
Walking can help strengthen bones and reduce your risk of osteoporosis. One Nurses’ Health study found that women who walked for a minimum of 4 hours a week saw a 40% reduced risk of hip fractures. While other forms of vigorous exercise such as running, jumping and weightlifting offer bone-strengthening benefits, the good news is that walking appears to do the same. That’s great news for those just starting a workout routine, people who must complete low-impact exercise due to joint issues and, of course, anyone who loves walking.
3. Boost your mood.
Having a rough day? Walk it off. Numerous studies have linked walking for exercise with improved mood and reduced stress levels. And it’s even better if you can take a stroll through nature — walking outdoors near greenery has been shown to help reduce feelings of frustration and may even help put your brain into a state of meditation.
4. Enhance your circulation.
Regular physical activity like walking is great for your heart. It enhances your circulation, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce your risk of stroke. And it doesn’t take much to reap the benefits: Walking briskly for just 30 minutes a day is enough to improve heart health.
5. Reduce your risk of tripping and falling with age.
Stepping out on a regular basis could help prevent the trips and falls that can occur when we age. Balance loss and weak muscles in the shins can cause a shuffling gait that can put you at a higher risk of tripping or falling. Regular walks can help improve balance by strengthening the lower body. Walking with an exaggerated heel-to-toe action can help strengthen these muscles even more by emphasizing the movement of the foot toward the shins (also known as dorsiflexion).
6. Bolster your memory.
Having a hard time remembering where your keys are? Walking regularly appears to help specifically bolster the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in verbal memory and learning. A study of women ages 65 and older, performed by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, found that age-related memory decline was lower in those who walked more.
7. Lessen the pain of conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia.
Walking most days of the week may help lessen pain and reduce symptoms for those with conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. The moderate, low-impact nature of walking is enough to lower pain and improve function for most. (Just be sure to consult your doctor before beginning any exercise program.)
8. Improve your blood glucose levels.
Walking can help improve your blood glucose levels at any time of the day or night but perhaps even more so right after a meal. One study published in the journal Diabetes Care found that a brief 15-minute walk after a meal was as effective at lowering blood sugar levels in 24 hours as a longer 45-minute walk.
9. Raise your immunity.
Stay healthy with daily steps. A walk every day may even help your body fend off illness better. Regular exercise can also contribute to maintaining a healthy weight, which helps reduce your risk of diseases such as cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
10. Improve your sleep.
Walking may help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly, especially if you suffer from insomnia. A morning walk outdoors may be particularly beneficial since exposure to daylight can help you stay in tune with your natural circadian rhythms.
HAVE A SAFE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!!
