Spring Cleaning for your Mind & Body

 

amt spring cleaning bodySpring is in the air. As you clean out your dresser drawers and closets, why not spring-clean your mind and body? Here are 5 easy ways to get started.

1. Give yourself a timeout: Take a few minutes each day to pray, meditate and reflect on your life. Being grateful for everything, both the good and the bad, can change your perspective and the way your handle your life’s situation.

2. Go outside: Take a walk or run outside in the fresh air or just play with your kids in the grass. The exercise will help release stress and improve your health. Plus you’ll get some much-needed, mood-boosting Vitamin D.

3. Rest: Most of us stay up a lot later during the summer months. Be sure to take care of yourself by getting enough sleep. Your body needs the time to recharge.

4. Grow a friendship: Nurturing friendships is an integral part of our happiness. Studies have proven that people with strong friendships live a longer life.

5. Release negativity: Happiness doesn’t just happen. Most people have to make the effort and choose to be happy. It’s helpful to remember that you have the power to control your thoughts, not the other way around.

Here is a tip to CHASE AWAY THE WINTER BLUES:

 

amt singing in the car

 

 

Sing out loud. No, not the sad tune you listened to repeatedly when your boyfriend dumped you or your dog died. Instead, put on the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby or Queen and sing along and move to the music in your PJs (you can’t look foolish if no one is watching), in the kitchen or even in your car on the way to work!

Can singing really make people happy? According to a 2008 Australian study of 1,100 choral singers, YES! Choir members said they were more satisfied with life than non-singers, even when they had long-term health problems.

That’s because, according to the National Mental Health Information Center, singing and dancing stimulates the body’s natural feel-good chemicals, opiates and endorphins. So why not take advantage of Mother Nature’s pick-me-up? SING A SONG as you COUNTDOWN TO SPRING!

 

Watch for Coronary Artery Disease Warning Signs

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) affects more than 13 million American. Caused by blockages in the arteries that nourish the heart with blood, it can lead to heart attacks and is the most common cause of death in the United States. Watch for these warning signs.

1. Chest Discomfort

Also known as angina, mild to severe pain, tightness, pressure or tingling can be a sign of CAD. These sensations can be triggered by eating, emotion, exercise, cold weather – or nothing at all.

2. Pain in Strange Places

You can also feel discomfort or pain in unexpected spots like the jaw, arms, left shoulder, neck or back. Sometimes pain starts in the chest and spreads toward the left.

3. Breathing Trouble

Shortness of breath can be a symptom of either heart or lung disorders. Both are serious. If you have difficulty breathing, consult your doctor.

4. “Digestive” Distress

Heart trouble can make you feel full, nauseous or as though you’re choking or have heartburn. It can cause stomach pain and even make you vomit.

5. Flip-Flopping Heart

Rapid or irregular heartbeats usually signal an arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation. But they can also be a sign of coronary artery disease. Consult your doctor for a diagnosis.

6. Dizziness

CAD can spook you by making you feel dizzy, light-headed, anxious, fatigued or sleepless. You can also break into a hot or cold sweat.

 

Tips for Heart Health

February is Heart Month! Celebrate by following these tips for cardiovascular health to keep your HEART HEALTHY!

1. Schedule a Check-Up:  Your doctor can help you manage cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and other conditions that lead to heart disease. But only if he/she knows you have them!

2. Eat Your Fish:  The omega-3 fatty acids in fish – or fish-oil capsules – will increase your good cholesterol and help with circulation, brain function, memory, depression and more.

3. Get Up and Move:  Make exercise part of your getting-up-in-the-morning routine. Walking is a great way for almost everyone to get prevent weight gain and keep the heart strong.

4. Cut Down on Salt:  Excess salt causes you to retain excess water, placing pressure on your blood vessels and heart. Read food labels, avoid processed and fast foods, and just say no to dill pickles!

5. Avoid Trans Fats:  In general, oil from nuts, seeds, plants and fish is okay in moderation. Avoid artery-clogging trans fats in fast foods like French fries, commercial baked goods like doughnuts and many candy bars.

6. Cut 100 Calories a Day:  A healthy body weight is good for your heart. If you cut 100 calories from your diet each day for a year, you’ll lose 10 pounds. If you are overweight, skip that can of soda, chunk of cheese or serving of mayo.

7. Quit Smoking:  You already know this but … smoking is really, really bad for you. It damages your arteries, increasing your risk for heart attack or stroke. Find a way to kick the habit.
