Staying in Shape During Your 30’s and 40’s

Published

on

During your younger years, which is around your 20’s and below, it was very easy to eat sweet and fatty foods without worrying too much about your health and weight. But now that you’re around 30 to 40 years old, eating the same amount of sweet and fatty foods as you did when you were younger would take a toll on your body. Therefore, you should watch out for your blood sugar, weight, and body fats to avoid complication.

The Right Kind of Workout

There isa lot of trendy fitness activity happening today, where technology is even used in the industry. However, not all fitness trends can suiteveryone’s needs, and to be more specific, people who are in their 40’s and above aren’t suited to do high-intensity workouts, except if they were continuously doing it during their younger years.

Also, if you are having back problems, it wouldn’t be a good idea if you add in the famous crunches in your workout routine. As you get older, your back tendsto have a bentposture which is due to all the activities you’ve made that bends your body.

So, if you’ve been sitting in front of a computer for a long, your back would probably have a hunched figure. Same applies if you’ve been doing exercises that usually bendyour upper back. So, what kind of workout should you do?

Suitable Workouts for You

Simple workouts like walking, jogging, and biking are more suitable for people with back problems. This wouldn’t stretch your back, but it would help improve your stamina levels. Aside from the basic workouts, you can also try the popular dance workout called Zumba. All you need to do is to follow the dance steps of your instructor.

HIIT is another option for over 40s fitness activity it is one of the fitness trends today that doesn’t strain your joints. In fact, they even have an article that avoids crunches due to the bent posture it leaves on people.

3 Tips to Follow to Stay in Shape 

Aside fromworking out, you should also be mindful of other things such as your diet, how many hours you sleep, and how long you should work out a day.

Now here are some of thethingsthat you need to follow to stay in shape:

  • Watch Your Diet

As we already know, staying in shape will not only consist of continuous exercises, but it should also consist of a healthy diet. Do not eat too much meat and always balance your diet with vegetables.

  • Don’t Train Too Much

During this age, you’ll most probably have a family to take care of, therefore you shouldn’t spend too much time working out at the gym, studio, or park. So, rather than spending 2 hours at the gym, you should cut it into 30 to 45-minute workout to spend more time with your family.

  • Focus on Mobility

Rather than focusing on getting those six-pack abs, you should focus more on mobility such as running, stretching, and lifting weights.

We are not getting any younger. So, why you still can, keep your body in shape to stay fit and healthy as you grow older. The more you work on a healthy lifestyle, the more you keep yourself safe from health conditions, such as aching back, arthritis, loss of stamina, and more.

The BioCharger An Electrical Healing Device That Does Remarkable Things

Published

on

I wrote about the bio charger, back in July of last year, but had a chance to use it again ar the Wellness and Travel Media Event. This machine uses energy to heal and dextox.

Science has confirmed the existence of a subtle energy fields around all living organisms, similar to the energy field recorded using thermal imaging technology. When optimal, this energy regulates cellular functions. But if it’s lacking or imbalanced, it causes cellular dysfunction, which decreases physical performance, injury recovery and overall well-being. The emerging field of energy medicine (EM) involves assessing and treating energy imbalances so that the body’s systems achieve homeostasis. This builds upon the work of Nobel Prize scientist Otto Von Warburg, who discovered that normal, healthy cells have trans-membrane potentials of approximately 70 to 100 millivolts, while fatigued, sick cells exhibit progressively lower voltages, which drop to as low as 15 millivolts in the case of cancer or disease. A prime example of what is happening now is the interference of 5G.

The BioCharger is a subtle energy revitalization platform that uses four types of transmitted energy—light, Voltage, frequencies, harmonics and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMFs)—to stimulate and invigorate the body. A touch-free, safe, rejuvenating full-body treatment, BioCharger supports the recovery of strength, stamina, coordination and mental clarity. During BioCharger sessions, members experience a customized electromagnetic field that bathes the full body in frequencies designed to restore
homeostasis. Users have reported measurable improvements in energy levels, fatigue and overall well-being.

Health and Wellness Benefits
• Boosts performance and recovery: our clients consist of Olympic and professional athletes within the NFL, World Surf League, MLB, and NBA who use the BioCharger to accelerate muscle
recovery and reduce stiffness in joints
• Enhances mind-body balance: Aligns body and mind down to the cellular level
• Improves well-being: Delivers a variety of health-related benefits, including improved sleep and
stress reduction2
• Increases energy: Revitalizes cells and restores homeostasis, which can impact energy levels3

I only know one place to use this machine and that is at Ostrostrong, but it is definitely worth checking into.

Sleep Well With Parallel

Published

on

Finding the perfect pillow can be a pain in the neck (literally). It is said we get the deepest, healthiest sleep with a pillow that provides the perfect combination of softness and firmness, as well as the ideal loft to help support your neck and spine.

“One size fits all” doesn’t cut it for those who suffer from neck pain. If you didn’t have neck pain before using an inexpensive pillow, you probably will not getting the proper support.

Memory foam pillows have been the best pillow for neck pain, but adjustable memory foam pillows help the side, stomach, or back sleeper relieve neck pain. They however are not thermal regulating or hypoallergenic, which I have learned for me is key.

I have never had a pillow that I love as much as the Parallel pillow. I have the Parallel High Profile Adjustable Pillow($89) and since it has arrived I have slept like never before. I use awake with neck and shoulder pains….no longer. I also use to flip again….gone.

When the pillow arrives, you throw it into the dryer for 5 minutes and wow the pillow is fluffy and ready for use.

This pillow has an inner shell that contains ParaPur™ silver ions that naturally destroy 99.9% of microbes that cause odors, without nasty chemicals. Silver ions have a wide spectrum of biocidal activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses, due to their high surface-to-volume ratio. Pure silver is also hypoallergenic. The sculptable, huggable Blutech Fiber Fill (BFF) inside the Parallel High Profile Pillow is a unique blend of downy hypoallergenic fibres and precision-cut gel visco foam that invites twice the airflow of conventional foam. You’ll feel the awesomeness immediately.

The pillow also boasts:

  • The perfect temperature, year-round. Never cold or hot
  • Easily adjustable pillow: add or remove fill for perfect support
  • Oodles of sculptable Blutech Fusion Fill (BFF) with 2X the airflow
  • Doesn’t go flat

Wellsystem Waterbed Massage That Makes Your Body Feel Like You Are In Heaven

Published

on

Yesterday at the Wellness and Travel Media Event I was offered to try the Wellsystem Waterbed Massage. Having to get up at 6am in the morning and not being a morning person, I was dragging by 11am. Then I tried the Wellsystem Waterbed Massage and was sent into nirvana.

In this world stress, bad posture, lack of exercise and 5G are causing more and more people to experience tension and pain in their neck, shoulders back and legs. Wellsystem‘s dry water massage uses heat and water power for a relaxing full, or partial, body massage. I had a five minute session and was brought back to life.

Warm water jets hit the underside of the soft natural rubber surface in even movements. They massage the body from head to toe while you float almost weightlessly on the dry water surface. The soothing warmth and gentle power of the water activates the deeper tissue layers and loosens the entire muscle system. The contactless dry water massage is exceptionally hygienic and an ideal supplement or alternative to manual therapy. 

Right now there isn’t a spa that has this in New York, but hopefully soon as this bed really did the trick.

Voices for Victoria Launches Call-To-Action Campaign Ahead of June 6th: National Naloxone Awareness Day

Published

on

In today’s America, there is an urgent ongoing crisis which can no longer go on. Within the last year, it was reported that over 112,000 lives were lost to opioid- and fentanyl-related overdoses. This epidemic is affecting everyone from all walks of life, leaving all vulnerable to the horrific nature of what has become a sad mark on our country’s history.

The crucial time to turn this statistic around and to create a better tomorrow has arrived, and we’re all responsible for answering the call. Voices for Victoria is a movement that was initiated by philanthropist Nancy Ross in support of the Victoria’s Voice Foundation, a non-profit organization founded with a mission of educating individuals on substance abuse prevention and addiction resources.

Dedicated to spreading awareness about opioid overdose reversal medications like Naloxone, Victoria’s Voice is collectively working day and night to bring attention to a mass movement for change. In need of assistance from advocates, celebrities, and government officials alike, the organization is asking for individuals to join the mission to generate more education and accessibility for Naloxone. At the same time the trailblazers are educating communities about its life-saving potential. They firmly believe that everyone deserves to have access to this vital medication.

For Ross—a mother, investigative journalist, philanthropist, and overdose awareness advocate—the fight to save the next generation is one that hits close to home.

“It’s so important that we are creating the kind of world that’s conducive for not only our children to inhabit, but generations upon generations of teenagers who are going to eventually learn about the impacts of substance addiction,” Ross asserts. “As a mom, I want to know that I’m helping to create a better world for my three children, and for the many students and community members whom this has already affected. We have to fight to save people from the clutches of this epidemic.”

By kickstarting an empowering #VoicesForVictoria social media campaign, this initiative sends a powerful message to communities across the nation that tangible reform is just around the corner, and that no one life should go overlooked. Using a platform has the influence to make a real difference in this fight against opioid overdose deaths.

“I learned about Naloxone after attending an event for Victoria’s Voice, and was blown away by the work they were doing in the community,” Ross says. “Imagine, Victoria could’ve been my own child. The thought that parents are losing their children due to a simple lack of awareness surrounding Naloxone is heartbreaking, but Voices for Victoria is working to remedy that. We are going to make a real difference through this movement.”

As both a parent and public figure, Ross feels responsible for helping to spread the word. As she joins with Victoria’s Voice, the philanthropist seeks to get others to respond to the call of advocacy, and to get the message about Naloxone out to every part of this country.

By reaching wider audiences, #VoicesForVictoria allows even more individuals to join the movement and encourage others to learn more about the life-saving capabilities of Naloxone. From neighbors to friends to loved ones, involvement with this campaign has the profound ability to save millions of people from succumbing to preventable deaths. Through Naloxone awareness, Victoria’s Voice.

Various initiatives leading up to National Naloxone Awareness Day on June 6 are in the works, with one such notable event featuring media personality and the “Wolf of Wall Street,” Jordan Belfort, with a live TikTok and Q&A session on Saturday, May 18 at 3pm EST. Belfort is helping to lead the charge to help save the next generation before it is too late. The critical information will be on his feed in front of his 3.6 million followers on his TikTok account, @wolfofwallstreet.

Victoria’s Voice was founded after Victoria Siegel—the daughter of “The Real Queen of Versailles” icon Jackie Siegel—passed away from a drug overdose on June 6, 2015, at just 18 years old. Victoria was just one of 129 Americans who lost their lives to  a drug overdose on that day. Since then, a staggering number of families across the United States have lost a loved one to overdose. In fact, nearly 300 people die from a drug overdose every single day in this country.

Join the movement today, and save lives with Voices for Victoria on the Victoria’s Voice Foundation official website.
