How to Deal with Health “Noise”

pimg class=”alignright” src=”http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg158/MDA2008/MDA%202012/noise.jpg” alt=”noise” width=”320″ height=”213″ title=”How to Deal with Health Noise” /Among the most important truths I’ve come to believe over time is the need to be selective in life. Selective with relationships. Selective with experiences. Selective with purchases. Selective with information. Selective with messages (whether they come from a title=”The Definitive Guide to Conventional Wisdom” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-definitive-guide-to-conventional-wisdom/” target=”_blank”outside sources/a or, on occasion, a title=”The Stories We Tell Ourselves” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-stories-we-tell-ourselves/” target=”_blank”my own head/a). Like it or not, we have limited time and energy in a day #8211; and in a life. While some people respond to this fact with frantic scurrying or a miserly parsing out of minutes, I’ve found the best approach for me is to winnow what I want or need to give attention to what#8217;s most important. It’s part spirit of simplicity and part defense of sanity, particularly when you consider the a title=”How the News Impacts […]

16 Ways Green Space Improves Your Life

pimg class=”alignright” src=”http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg158/MDA2008/MDA%202012/greenspace.jpg” alt=”greenspace” width=”320″ height=”319″ title=”16 Ways Green Space Improves Your Life” /Most people like being surrounded by nature. Even if it#8217;s just a walk through a suburban city park or puttering about in a backyard garden, we#8217;re drawn to green spaces filled with grass, trees, and leafy vegetation. They make us feel better. But the way we describe the effects of green space is all very amorphous and abstract and general, isn#8217;t it? We #8220;feel good#8221; sitting on the grass. #8220;It#8217;s nice#8221; to take a walk along a forest path. The office #8220;doesn#8217;t feel right#8221; without a potted plant on the desk. Those sorts of benefits are great on a subjective level for the people experiencing them, but they aren#8217;t very persuasive to others. If you want your ambivalent spouse to help grow the big garden you#8217;ve always wanted, or your skeptical friends to start going on a title=”Walking: […]

You can have tried and failed when we have tried to drop certain fat. If you manage to shed a amount of pounds you then have the complicated task of keeping the weight off.

I miss Intermittent Fasting | The Sunny Coconut

Oh sure, I do it almost every Friday night, after Friday lunch out at a restaurant, but that’s been the ONLY time I’ve been IF’ing since mid summer.I realized last night that I miss it!When I was more regularly intermittent fasting (in my case, not eating dinner or anything after a mid afternoon snack)…I felt AWESOME!  I felt light, free, mind crystal clear (always a wonderful thing at 63 LOL)…in control, on top of the world.I want more of that, again!So I’m going to start making it a point to IF through dinner at least twice, preferably 3 times, a week.Of course, to do this in a medically safe way, there are guidelines:1.  if you’ve never done this before, make sure you don’t have any underlying medical condition for which this would be unsafe.  Check with your regular physician first if you are unsure.2

pIt#8217;s the Monday after a title=”PrimalCon” href=”http://www.primalblueprint.com/PrimalCon” target=”_blank”PrimalCon/a Oxnard, and I#8217;m still trying to process it all./p
pLet#8217;s set the scene for those who don#8217;t know: Mandalay Beach Resort, Oxnard, CA. Nestled right on the coast between Malibu and Santa Barbara, this sleepy little resort hovers at a perfect 72-75 ºF through September, even as the inland valleys bake in the lingering summer heat. Sand dunes shield you from coastal winds. Nights are comfortably cool. The clear blue sea is 66 degrees, refreshing without being uncomfortable. The resort itself is recently remodeled, fusing luxurious refinement with beach culture. And of course, our barefooted band of joyful Groks and Grokettes took the place over, earning flabbergasted stares which gave way to envy and curiosity./p

pYou can choose to seek out authentic ingredients (like lily buds and cloud ear fungus) or simply go with dried shiitake mushrooms. Likewise, ingredients like soy sauce, sugar and red rice vinegar can be replaced with a title=”Is it primal?” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/is-it-primal-7-more-foods-scrutinized/#axzz370Xcv6cs”coconut aminos/a and plain rice vinegar.
