Mental Attitude: Exercise May Ward Off Anger. Before and after 30 minutes of moderate-intensity cycling, male participants viewed a slideshow known to evoke anger mixed with images designed to induce fear, pleasantness or no emotions. After exercising, watching the pictures didn’t make the men more angry, while after rest, the pictures did so. An exercise class or weight lifting can take your mind off things. The distraction offered by exercise can have a calming effect, as well.

Health Alert: Are School Wellness Policies Implemented? The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 requires all school districts have a Wellness Policy if they participate in federally funded school meal programs. Part of the Wellness Policy should include nutrition education activities. 58% of the teachers thought they did not have adequate classroom time to include nutrition competencies. 64% thought they had the skills to incorporate the wellness policy, but only 30% are including nutrition competencies into their lesson plans.
Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, July/August 2010

Diet: Special Delivery. Eating high-fiber foods ensures timely digestion and elimination of wastes (whereas overconsumption of animal fats and low-fiber foods leads to colonic inactivity and constipation). Foods high in saturated fat also can contribute to plaque buildup in the arteries, reducing the ability of blood to move through the body and potentially causing a blockage – leading to a heart attack or stroke.

Exercise:  Stretching Exercises At Your Desk For Your Back And Shoulders (The “Leg Hug”). Sit on the edge of your chair. Put your feet together, flat on the floor. Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms dangle loosely to the floor. Release your neck. Now bring your hands behind your legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm, left hand grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release your hands to the floor again. Repeat three times or as often as it feels good.

Chiropractic:  Brain Energy Output. 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body to gravity. Only 10 percent has to do with thinking, metabolism and healing, so when you have forward head posture your brain will rob energy from your thinking, metabolism and immune function to deal with abnormal gravity/posture relationships and processing.
Dr. Roger Sperry (Nobel Prize, Brain Research, 1981)

Wellness/Prevention: Keep Breathing! How important is oxygen and lung capacity? The surface area of a human lung is equal to a tennis court. Unfortunately, without exercising your lungs (slow deep breathing — 5 to 10 deep breaths every hour and exercise), your lung capacity will shrink as you age.
