Jody Watley. Morning Walk Musings

I love morning run-walks. It’s not only a good for your heart and body, it’s a wonderful way to clear your mind.

It’s easy to take nature for granted but I always make sure to look at the trees, smell the flowers if in bloom, and to look up at the sky with a heart full of gratitude. If your neighborhood isn’t so great, go to a local park where you can give yourself some breathing room -stop making excuses. Remember that despite life’s obstacles, stumbles or challenges – every day is a miracle.

Health & Beauty. Berries

Not just for delaying the effects of father time, but for any age; all of these berries provide benefits with natural anti-oxidants and vitamins. Make them a part of your daily health, beauty and wellness routine.

3. Strawberries:  http://www.healthdiaries.com/eatthis/8-health-benefits-of-strawberries.html

I keep frozen bags of fruit in my freezer to add to a daily protein shake in the morning; of course they’re all wonderful fresh. Lingonberries are quite tart and are better as a jam or in the smoothie.

Health and Beauty. Flaxseed Oil

Think about adding flaxseed oil to your daily health routine, along with your Omega-3’s. It may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and stroke. I generally put a tablespoon or two in my oatmeal or a protein shake in the morning. I’d stopped for a while, but I’m back on track.
