Spring

Positive Attitude for Longer Life

Wouldn't you rather choose to be happy?  A positive attitude not only improves your mood, can also lengthen your life, decreasing major health concerns. Harvard School of Public Health researchers have determined that optimistic individuals were approximately 50% less likely to experience an initial cardiovascular event compared to their pessimistic individuals.
 
We've listed below FIVE TIPS FOR RESETTING A POSITIVE FRAME.

At Audacious Health we frequently observe the relationship between one's feelings and levels of stress and its impact to health.

Another Five Tips for Healthy Eating Habits

Previously we talked about five top tips for Healthy Eating Habits, i.e. Eat your food slowly; Sit whilst you eat; Enjoy what you eat; Plan your meals; and Portion control your meals....  How did you go?  Were you already following these habits?  Below we've listed another five healthy eating habits to help you with "spring cleaning" your health this Spring.  

* AVOID OVEREATING
Eating slowly and controlling portions will help with avoiding eating too much.

Top Five Tips for Healthy Eating Habits

We have all heard the expression "you are what you eat".  So, making healthy food choices, i.e. what we eat, is important.  And just as important is "how we eat" or i.e. our eating habits.  good eating habits will support us to stay on track with maintaining our diets and digestive systems.  Below we've listed our top Healthy Eating Habits for you to consider if you aren't already doing this...

*EAT YOUR FOOD SLOWLY  Chewing your food versus scoffing it down makes a difference.

Does Food Matter?

Modern science has found, proved and revised many links between what we eat and our health.  Recent research has also established links between what we eat and our moods and emotions.

None of this is news to Traditional Chinese Medicine  (TCM) that has long explored the connection between the food we eat and our energetic systems.

Foods in TCM are categorised based on factors such as:

  • Cooling or heating effect
  • Ability to raise or lower energy
  • Increasing Yin or Yang
  • Ability to build blood
  • Specific effects on individual organ systems

Change...

Well.  Spring is all around us and it's often at this time that we think about making changes in our life.  Diets, additional exercise, reorganising our homes:  change can bring up interesting thoughts and emotions.

Change is an interesting concept and a great example of the experience of life being a product of our interpretation.  For example some people experience changing where they live as an exciting new beginning whilst others (in the same family even) experience the same change as very unpleasant.

Spring into Spring

Already we see evidence that spring has arrive from the sun coming up earlier and staying longer to flowers blooming. You may have also noticed the shift in our body's energy with these seasonal changes.

Spring is the season of the liver and gallbladder in TCM, with these organs responsible for regulating the smooth flow of energy throughout the body and mind. When this flow isn't smooth and soothing we experience irritation, frustration, anger, depression, insomnia, indecisiveness, and are more prone to headaches, joint pain, muscle strains.
