Lets Not Forget About Activity

What about activity?

Exercising  30 minutes a day is essential.
To make this easier, find an activity that you enjoy doing and why not think of it as “playing.”
everything you do, whether it’s walking,playing with your pet, or washing the car, burns calories.
Look for things that you will enjoy during your work out. Such as the beautiful weather, the park, or just be grateful that you can and are capable of performing any activity.
 join a gym or recreational center or walk in your local mall.
If you’re  intimidated to work out in front of others, buy or rent a walking DVD,  For every excuse that you deside to come up with, there will be a way to get around it
Accept that this is what you  need to do for the rest of your life and try to work on your attitude. You can learn to love activity, or at least, appreciate what it does for your health.We all have pitfalls,but we just have to pick up were we started and continue on.

Garlic Tea For Coughs

 Christmas season  is a time for sharing and gathering around the tree singing carols and being with family. we also catch colds from being in closed areas. So I am sharing this remedy that works for me.
  • Cut a garlic bulb into quarters and add to two 2 quarts of water
  • Boil on low flame for at least one hour.
  • Strain and sip slowly.
 Also this  garlic tea has a very pleasant taste.
