I promise. The first one isn't a reminder to exercise.
Naw. Actually one of the best things you can do for your health is to get a good night's sleep. Even the eggheads will say in studies of humans and other animals, they have discovered that sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.
So there you have it. Get a good night sleep. The other suggestion. Eat green vegetables. They're healthy and look how much this child enjoys them.
What are three things that are, or soon will be extinct.
First phone booths, then the phone book, and now land lines. Wisconsin and Indiana are the two latest states that no longer require phone companies to provide everyone land line service and a handful of other states are considering it.
Supporters say it’s for the better because it’ll allow more investments in better technology rather and increase competition. Some worry that rural areas that don’t get the best cell phone coverage will be socked with higher costs.
That news made me think. First about how people will always need a mattress to sleep on, so at least I'll always have a job.
Second, about phone booths. When is the last time you saw a phone booth. When's the last time you actually used a phone booth? What if Superman were to show up today? Where would he change?
I guess he would have to duck into a Starbucks or a cell phone retail store. Those are everywhere!
Madison is a beautiful city and one way people like to enjoy the sights is by getting out for a run. Obviously, this is also a great form of exercise as well. While jogging is a great way to work out no matter how far or hard you go, how often do you really challenge yourself? Maybe it's time you turned those light runs into a training regiment for a 10k, half-, or full marathon! By signing up for an official race, you set a goal and deadline for yourself, which encourages you to push yourself and go further than likely would otherwise. It's a great way to up your workout and get healthier. Here are some races in the Madison area coming up this summer:
I'm not sure that's the correct saulutation for the day, but at least I didn't deliver the sentiment with toxic nail polish. By the way, I will guarantee you will never find any toxic nail polish in Verlo Mattress.
What I did want to talk about is superstition. Got any of your own? I know if I don't get my coffee in the morning, people will PAY, but I don't think that has anything to do with superstition.
This being one of several Friday the 13ths of 2012, I looked up some of the reasons why this day ia little spooky for some, and I thought I'd share:
According to National Geographic, the number 13 may have got its bad rap due to two less-than-gracious dinner guests, both the 13th guest at their respective dinners.
In Norse mythology, the mischievous god Loki, god of evil and turmoil, interrupted a dinner party of 12 other gods. The uninvited 13th guest arranged for Hoder, the blind god of darkness, to shoot the god of joy and gladdness with a mistletoe-tipped arrow.
There is also the biblical story of the last supper and Judas' betrayal of Jesus. Judas was the 13th guest at the supper.
Interestingly enough, Franklin D. Roosevelt would never host 13 guests at a meal, according to LiveScience.com, which also reports Roosevelt refused to travel on the 13th of any month.
The association of Friday and bad luck appeared in The Canterbury Tales in the late 14th century, and in Christian tradition, the crucifixion of Jesus, Eve's offering the apple to Adam, the beginning of the Great Flood and the confusion at the Tower of Babble all are said to have taken place on a Friday.
By the way, if you're one of the 21 million Americans who suffer from paraskavedekatriaphobia, the fear of Friday the 13th (as opposed to triskaidekaphobia, fear of the number 13), don't worry, there's only one more Friday the 13th this year. It will occur on Nov. 13.
Calcium is a key nutrient in our bodies. It performs many important functions, the obvious being building strong bones. Not getting enough calcium can not only produces weaker bones, but breaks down the bones we already have. Most of the calcium we need comes from our diet, but when we don't get enough, our bodies start taking it from our bones, weakening them as time goes by. This causes more broken bones and tougher recovery. Therefore it is very important to get enough calcium and here are some ways to ensure that you do!
Add milk where you normally wouldn't. Dairy is a great source of calcium, and adding milk to things like soup, oatmeal, sauces, and smoothies when you might normally use water and give your calcium intake a boost.
Use green herbs and spices. Green, leafy plants and vegetables have a high concentration of calcium. This includes things like kale, parsley, collard greens, broccoli, and cabbage which can be added to any meal to increase calcium and taste!
Eat dark, leafy salads. The same idea as above but in greater amounts. Romaine hearts, arugula, butter lettuce, and mesclun will all have much higher calcium levels than lighter leafs like iceberg lettuce.
Take extra servings of vegetables. Again, green vegetables are a great source of calcium. Eat just a little extra of those asparagus, fresh green peas, broccoli, and cabbage.
Fish with bones. This one may take getting used to for some. Use canned fish or crustaceans with bones to top salads or make sandwiches. The bones are the key!
Beans and legumes. Add them to soups, stews, chili or use as the protein in your meal!
Oats. Rolled or steel cut oats in the morning can fill you up healthily and add some calcium to your diet.
Nuts and seeds. These are great things to snack on or use as flavor enhancer for oatmeal and salads.
Tea. Drink tea instead of coffee for that caffeine kick with a calcium punch.
Whole grains. Use whole grain breads, make whole grain pancakes, boil up some whole grain pasta. It's all good!
These foods are also high in other important nutrients as well, so not only will you be keeping your bones strong, but you're body running smoothly as well.
The subject of the photo is a guy named Zeddie Little. He splits the difference between metro chic and rugged handsomeness, with immaculate facial stubble offset by perfectly feathered hair that the photographer caught floating upward and being kissed by the sun.
Other than being a 25-year-old man from New York City, not much is known about him other than the fact that he's of Stock-Photo quality.
In any case, It make me think of perfection and getting a good night sleep.
It's a much better investment that spending your time looking at memes of Ridiculously Photogenic Guy, although both can be entertaining.
I suggest visiting our Sleep Experts at Verlo for a test drive of a new bed.
Are they Ridiculously Photogenic?
Many people do not eat after exercise because they might not be hungry or don’t have time, but nourishing the body with nutrients post-exercise is a good habit to practice.
Studies have shown that the 60 minutes following exercise is the optimal time to eat carbohydrate-rich foods and drinks. It is the “Golden Hour” when the muscles absorb the most nutrients and when glycogen, an energy reserve in your muscles, is replaced most efficiently. The carbs replenish the used-up energy that is normally stored as glycogen in muscle and in the liver.
Protein is also important in post-exercise nutrition because it aids in recovery to build back the muscles that were fatigued during exercise. Most experts suggest a post exercise meal consisting of protein and carbohydrates.
