Toss the Resolutions and Begin Permanent New You Solutions!

 

The Living Healthy Movement

Welcome to the new HEPSA Living Healthy Online Blog!  We are starting this New Year off right with a new look, new blog and new mission!  HEPSA Living Healthy wants to help you change your life for the better by joining the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement!  So sign up for this new blog today by clicking – www.livinghealthyonline.org

I am Denine Rogers, a registered licensed dietitian nutritionist and holistic practitioner who have a passion to change people’s lives for the better.  I have decided to start the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement because of the constant problems and complaints that I have received from my clients about making New Year’s Resolutions not New Year Solutions.  Too often we do not keep our resolutions and by the time the end of the year comes we feel like we have failed through the whole year. A resolution is a temporary hopeful fix but a solution is a permanent change!  The HEPSA Living Healthy Movement is on a mission to get you to discover what is holding you back from losing weight, stopping smoking, continuing an exercise plan, changing your relationships with food, etc. Check out joining the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement by signing up at the HEPSA Living Healthy Newsletter – www.livinghealthy1.org where we are making solutions for 2015, not resolutions!

This year 2015 the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement are providing ways to change your life for the better by learning about 12 different topics.  The monthly topics will be:

  1. Eating healthy with whole food nutrition
  2. Cooking healthy meals and snacks
  3. Herbal Medicine and Botanicals
  4. Exercising
  5. Meditation, Tia chi, Yoga and Qi Gong
  6. Aromatherapy
  7. Mind, Body and Spiritual Relationships
  8. Gardening
  9. Integrative Nutrition and Medicine
  10. Complementary Alternative Medicine
  11. Vitamins and Supplements
  12. Homeopathy

So for this whole year, the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement is focusing on making positive changes with your life.  I am asking you to join, the HEPSA Living Healthy Movement by clicking here today.

Thank you so much and start Living Healthy today!

Kids Eat Right Month – Get Moving

running children

On this last week of August and the last subject to discuss about the Kids Eat Right Program is “Get Moving with Exercise”.  Too often I have heard from parents that their child does not like to play outside and they rather watch television or play on the computer.  The most important thing that a parent must do is to encourage their child to get up and start moving.  Lack of exercise is one of the main causes of childhood obesity and chronic diseases.  Having the whole family (that means you too Moms and Dads) exercising together will make a tremendous difference with family and future generation in living a healthy life.

Support Your Kids’ Exercise Activities:

Start being a role model for your kids by present physical activity as an important time to take care of your body and health, rather than a chore. Work out with your children by finding activities you enjoy and be active for at least 30 minutes five days a week. Remember, that adults need at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day, and children need 60 minutes. Make sure you ask your child which exercise activities they would like to do.   Also, praise, reward and encourage your kids’ physical activity with activity related equipment, games or outings.

Some exercises activity ideas are:

Go to the nearest park, swing set or jungle gym after school.

Start jumping rope with your kids or organize a neighborhood jump rope group.

When bad weather strikes, play active indoor games such a DVD and VHS exercise or dance videos and/or exercise or dance video games.

Organize your family room or living room for more exercise activity. Try kid’s yoga or dancing to music after dinner time.

Make sure you have time during the weekend for half a day of family activity each weekend, such as a family walk, bike ride, shoot hops, jump rope or tennis match.

Encourage your kids to participate in active chores such as light housework, raking leaves, sweeping the walks or cleaning the garage. Make sure you make those the chores fun to do by turning on the radio in the garage and do the chores with them.
Limit the extracurricular time your kids spend in front of a computer or TV to less than two hours daily.
Keep the television in the living room and not in  your kids’ bedrooms. This will help decrease how much television that they would watch and it also help to control what they watch.

I hope you enjoyed this first annual Kids Eat Right Month.  If you feel that you received great information this month about the Kids Eat Right program you can always read other exciting postings by clicking this link below –  www.eatright.org/kids/

Spring Ahead for Lente

010

Being a Christian, this is the season for Lente and is it a time to give up something and gain something better.  I decided to sleep for one hour earlier in order to wake up 1 hour early in the morning to see this wonderful sun rise.  Since the weather is getting warmer I have been running in the AM time with my beautiful black labs.  Doing this has given me a chance to enjoy my afternoon more and it allows for me not feel rush to finish everything that I have to do that evening.  This also has given me the chance to accomplish everything that I need to do for the rest of day.  I have a question that to ask you:

What are you willing to give up in order to gain something better?

Let me know what your answer to this question by emailing me at the comments section of this blog.

I also had the excellent opportunity to be a guest host with the Itunes webcast of “Low Carbo Conversations”.  Listen in to what was discussed and let me know what you think of the broadcast!
