Do Those Pull-ups Everyday!

Pull-ups are one of the most challenging exercises, however they pack amazing benefits! When attempting them, it is best to use some sort of weight assistance, or a boost to the upper position, then lowering slowly. Check out the video from BESTIE to find out what you will get from doing these!

Your IMMUNE SYSTEM Is Your First Line Of Defense!

Nope, not going to talk about the virus that has everyone buying out the toilet paper. Why that is happening is a true head-scratcher. What I want to say has to do with something so much more important that you will want to work on even when there ISN’T mass panic going on.

Your IMMUNE SYSTEM! Let’s see a show of hands of those who actually focus on making their immune system function properly 12 months out of the year! This is what our media should have in the news every day. Instead, what do we get? Well, I’m not getting into that right now but you know 🙂

We are waiting on a vaccine that could take up to a year to get, for a virus that you may never get! Your immune system is something that is so much more powerful than any vaccine and you can work on feeding it what it needs on a daily basis to make sure it is functioning at a level that will fight off disease. I’m not just talking about that virus that is going around, but all disease! I completely understand there are those with conditions that compromise the immune system, however that doesn’t mean we can’t be doing all we can throughout the year to be as healthy as possible. I have said many times before, you don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be consistent. We are fooling ourselves if we think anyone in the government, or in big pharma, is going tell us if we eat more plants and do some simple exercises we can do a lot to prevent disease. Instead, we get “don’t touch anyone”. I don’t fancy myself a conspiracy theorist but it is tough not to conjure up crazy ideas in your head when a big part of the answer is right there!

One thing I have learned from my 17 years with Juice Plus is that fruits and vegetables are not optional, they are a requirement. When we eat whole food plants, we are providing what our bodies need to be healthy. Again, not an option. We see commercial after commercial for medicine that simply puts a bandage on the problem when what we should be seeing is commercials to eat not just 5 a day, but 10-15 servings of fruits and veggies!

Be a trend setter for the next big virus! Flood your body with fruits and vegetables and see what changes can be made!

Until next time…

My CORONOVIRUS Thoughts…For What That Is Worth!

Let me make sure you understand that I think we need to take precautions with the coronavirus, just like with other flu strains. Yes, it needs to be contained so it doesn’t spread, I completely agree with that. But are we going too far? That is the question!

The media is making us believe this is the next apocalypse! I actually heard someone say that we haven’t had a pandemic like this since the Spanish Flu. Yes, you read that correctly and you can read about the Spanish Flu here. Are we really in that great of danger? I’m not a doctor or a scientist, but I have been around long enough to know the media tends to blow things out of proportion and people will go right along with what they say. The Spanish Flu? Really?

Just today, the Archdiocese of St. Louis said to stop distribution of the Blood of Christ at communion. Again, I understand precautions but here is my concern. About 4-6 weeks ago, schools were seeing anywhere from 15-25% of kids out due to the regular ole flu and this was never brought up. Why is that? We go through the flu every year, yet I have never witnessed the church doing this. Shouldn’t we be consistent in the message and, for precautionary sake, every year halt the distribution at church during flu season to prevent the spread? Or are we getting a little panicked here. Now, I know everyone isn’t Catholic but I’m sure we all have witnessed something along these lines in other churches, work and so forth.

I’m 50 something years old. I’m not getting worked up about this but I am taking care of myself so I can fight off not only the coronavirus, but any other illness that may try to take affect in my body. The bigger picture is what we are doing to the younger people in society who will get panicked. Would you agree that anxiety in our youth is, arguably, at an all-time high? Is this doing anything to help? I say , shame on the media for building this up to something that will most likely pass. Take precautions and use common sense!

Until next time…
