Merry Christmas~Enjoy the Views

Hippocrates had it right-“walking is man’s best medicine.”*

man’s ~ Natalie’s ~ best friends in winter wonderland

I am ever so grateful for my best friends who motivate me to go out walking, in all weather, playing…or sliding, as you can see everything is snow and ice covered. It sure is beautiful, though. I love taking in the shimmering sights, crackling and distant sounds with cool refreshing smells, all simultaneously.

I also love the fact that I must go outdoors in all weather for the mail. Bills? So what? At least I am getting exercise in all the good our planet has to offer.

During the day, our feet are subjected to cumulative forces that can add up to several hundred tons. That’s right, several hundred tons of force on our feet in only one day.

Does that answer your question about the reason you have joint or other pain?

If I may, I suggest using some of your Christmas and other gift funds for good quality foot wear. Everything is dependent upon a good solid foundation, anyway.

You can further your good foundation with a proper foundation lifestyle routine. That means doing the moves that are beneficial for you instead of general knowledge that has you spinning in circles. What works for someone else is not guaranteed to work for you.

It is not your fault; you just need to have the right and proper program design fitted to your specific needs. That is when I am in my element: figuring out what works for you.

Please feel comfortable contacting me; because, when you are happy, I am happy. 🙂

Best of health to you and good bye.

Wow, who knew that walking can be that powerful? Only everyone since the beginning of time.

Hippocrates, ~400 BC, knew that environment, activities of daily living and diet are the deciding factors of our health.

Plato, ~300 BC,  knew that God gave us education and exercise to work together for our best life possible.

Look at the ancient practices of China and India, which have been keeping their people healthy for 4000 to 5000 years.

This makes me love my walks that much more; how about you?

Best of health to you and good-bye for now.
