The Importance of Variety in Nutrition

Variety in nutrition is as important to being healthy as changing our routines, trying new things, and doing more than moving one part of our body as our workout. I have certain foods that I like a lot, so I find it very easy to slip into a routine of very similar things all the time. However, I also know that if I give myself a range of different ingredients throughout the week, I’ll also be giving my body lots of different nutrients.  Still, for me, it’s more than that.

What My 60+ Strength Training Routine Looks Like

My strength training routine has become a matter of focus for me.  I feel that when it comes to cardio, that’s the type of workout I’m most likely to do. I keep it up regularly.  Same thing can be said for my work on balance and flexibility, as I practice yoga and tai chi on a steady basis. When it comes to maintaining muscles, the activities just don’t seem to naturally fit into my life, so I’ve decided to make them something I choose to do.  Yes, they’re a chore, but they’re a necessary one.

Yoga Nidra for Sleep is Helping Me and I Recommend It to You

Yoga nidra for sleep has started making its way into my life to the point that I have been practicing it regularly since December.  I’m not saying that I haven’t gone a night without it, but it’s easily been a part of my winding down routine more often than not.  Now that I’ve tested it on myself, I’m ready to recommend it to you too.
