This is the wrong thing to do. The most important thing to remember about exercise as we get older is that it does not need to be strenuous, it just needs to be consistent. Regular physical activity will help our body function more effectively in many ways. It helps with weight loss and maintenance, combats anxiety and depression, keeps bones, muscles and joints working properly, relieves symptoms of arthritis and reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer.

• Oxygenate your body. One of the basic elements of all life on earth is oxygen.
Without it, we die within minutes, if not seconds. All of the functions of your body are regulated by oxygen. The ability to think, feel, move, eat, sleep and even talk all depends on the energy oxygen generates. Your brain needs oxygen to process information and your body uses it to metabolize food and to eliminate toxins and waste through oxidation. Oxygen energizes cells so they can regenerate and it provides vital cellular flexibility. A lack of oxygen results in sickness, poor vitality, poor stamina, fatigue and a generally weak disposition.
Our air today has less oxygen than it did a hundred years ago. On top of that, it is heavily polluted with toxic gases. Add in the fact that most of us don't exercise regularly and practice shallow breathing, we are not getting enough oxygen into our cells and tissues. Poorly oxygenated cells are a major cause of many serious diseases, including cancer. You can get more oxygen into your body by doing deep breathing exercise, meditating, aerobic exercise, and going to more oxygen-rich places, such as nature reserves and beaches. Use a air purifier to enhance the quality of air in enclosed and crowded area within the house and office premises.
Having adequate of rest for your body.
Our lives sometimes seem so busy that we don't have enough hours to devote to sleep. But there is no doubt about it, sleep and rest are two essentials of a healthy lifestyle. Getting enough sleep is vital for our health. Sleep is restorative to both our bodies and minds. The purpose of sleep is to give the body time to recharge and rejuvenate itself, repair and rebuild the cells, and to detoxify and depress physiological function, rest allows the body an opportunity to restore energy levels. We need to have at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night, Try to go to bed by 10pm, as the best period for the body to repair and heal itself is between 10pm and 2am.
Avoid bedtime snacks, especially refined carbohydrates and grains. These tend to raise blood sugar which will inhibit sleep and then later cause a drop in blood sugar which causes hunger and wakefulness. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and any unnecessary drugs as well as foods to which you may be sensitive. Get adequate sunshine during the morning hours and sleep in as close to total darkness as possible. Try to keep the temperature of bedroom at 70 degrees or slightly below for a more restful (and energy saving) sleep. Wear socks to bed if you get cold.

Take a vacation, even if it is just a long weekend. Either do nothing or do something you find relaxing. Try to lighten up and laugh.

Avoid dosing yourself with bad news and negative people; the TV news and newspapers are filled with unnecessary bad news -- if possible, avoid them. If there are issues, such as grief, manage and deal with them. Mental and emotional stress and trauma suppress our immune systems, and also release many harmful toxins into our bodies.

It comes in many forms and refers to many different programs that cleanse the body of toxins. Today, our environment is toxic and the foods we eat, even the air we breathe and the water we drink is laden with chemicals foreign to our system. Therefore, everyone is undergoing some type of detoxification to maintain life and health.
We will soon see why these organs are so important in detoxification. Detoxification for the body may refer to the cleansing of the bowels, kidneys, lungs, the liver or the blood, since these are the organs involved in detoxification of chemicals and toxins from the body. The liver acts as an "in-line" filter for the removal of foreign substances and wastes from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove volatile gases as we breathe.
While there are many detoxification programs available, they differ in their actions and their intent. Some detoxification programs (DP) work only with the bowels, others may cleanse the liver or the blood, and others may aid the kidneys or the skin in their functions. By combining these detox programs into a total health management program, one can effectively restore their health to an optimal level and look younger in the process. When the body can eliminate toxins, then health is restored and energy and vigor are revitalized. Many different approaches to detoxification and wellness will work, even though they attack the problem at different levels. Any program that augments detoxification will improve health. Other factors must be considered in detoxification, like nutrition, water, and exercise, rest, sunshine, and fresh air
Are you exposing yourself to enough sunshine for vitamin D?
Sunlight exposure is truly one of the most powerful healing therapies in the world, far surpassing the best efforts of today’s so-called “advanced medicine.” There is no drug, no surgical procedure, and no high-tech procedure that comes even close to the astonishing healing power of natural sunlight.
The proper amount of sunlight can have healing and cleansing effects on the body. While too much sun can cause adverse effects on health, too little can have negative health effects also. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight. Fifteen minutes of sunlight every day could prevent nearly 100% of osteoporosis cases in that it stimulates the skin to produce Vitamin D which is absolutely necessary for calcium absorption and utilization. It is obvious that we need sunlight for good health. One of its greatest benefits may be the strengthening of the immune system.
Healthy lifestyle can help you reduce your risk for chronic diseases. Learn what you can for disease prevention and have a better quality and healthy life.
