Success S alud
Remember the day when you would
call a friend, the number was busy, and
you hung up and called later? Today,
you call, leave a voicemail, text, email,
and heaven forbid you don’t have a
response within the minute! Your body
requires ample vitamins and minerals
to dissipate the stresses of your day.
Exercise becomes the release that helps
the body recalibrate for a new day. In
these economic times, why would you
waste your money on food that slows
you down, weakens the system and
highlights your age? Choose foods that
empower you to be the best you can
be, that give you energy and maximize
your youth at any age. Exercise needs
to become the habit of choice but it
doesn’t mean you have to go to a gym
to do so. Your goal is to elevate your
heart rate everyday for at least one
hour, not one hour of cardio, but one
hour of movement. This hour could be
comprised of weights, cardiovascular
activity and yoga or it could be
comprised of walking the beach and
working in the garden. Move in ways
that you feel your breath become
challenged and you feel your body
sweat. Use movement to release all of
the stress and toxins of your day and
use that same movement to help you
feel your very best!

Studies have found that the majority of the developed world thinks that mangoes
originated in their homeland. Although the fruit actually originated in India,
it hasn’t stopped families from passing down recipes. Besides being a great
alternative to pound-packing desserts, mangoes can improve mood disorders by
elevating serotonin levels. Whether you decide to chew ‘em, drink ‘em or lick ‘em,
the benefits remain the same. For great mango recipes, visit FreshMangoes.com.
If you’re torn between eating
what you want and what you
should, take these tips to heart

Keeping secrets may have been all
the rage in grade school, but as an
adult, you need to focus on sharing
any pent-up emotions with friends
and family instead of allowing them
to fester inside.
For some people, their career is their
top priority. For others, it’s family
first. The most successful among us
are those who can balance both their
professional and personal lives and
all the people in them.
Being flawless is boring, stressful and
impossible. Don’t torture yourself.
Do the best you can, learn from your
experiences and evolve. Just don’t
get too loose with your standards!
Nobody likes a slacker!
