1. Exercise Super Charges Brainpower
Not only does exercise improve your body, it helps your mental function. Exercise increases energy levels and increases serotonin in the brain, which leads to improved mental clarity. All that makes for a more productive day and happier employee which equate to better employee retention.
People who are active and who exercise are much more productive at work. Improved productivity not only makes you a better worker, it makes things better for everyone in the workplace. Companies with less wasted work hours and less sick time end up with lower health care costs — and an improved bottom line. That is why so many companies either have gyms at their offices or help to pay for employees to have gym memberships.Take a Tour

Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.
Stress is a normal part of life. Many events that happen to you and around you — and many things that you do yourself — put stress on your body. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts. The human body is designed to experience stress and react to it. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert and ready to avoid danger. Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between challenges. As a result, the person becomes overworked and stress-related tension builds.Take a Tour
If you’re at the menopausal stage of your life, you have probably experienced a number of menopausal symptoms and different kinds of discomfort. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was long the standard treatment for menopause, however, since we now know that traditional HRT using synthetic estrogen and progestins increases the risk of breast cancer and heart disease, many women and healthcare providers are no longer routinely asking for or prescribing traditional estrogen replacement therapy. While hormone replacement therapy is still a popular and clinical way to recover estrogen levels, statistics show that more and more women, every day, are turning to natural alternative treatments to treat the symptoms they experience during menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. It’s really better to turn to natural remedies. Try the following tips to ease symptoms of menopause.Take a Tour
Everything on Earth has a specific vibrational frequency. Humans have a certain vibration field which has to be maintained at specific levels to ensure optimal wellness. The frequency basically means the way in which molecules or atoms of all matter “spin” around one another – under the microscopic eye.
Our vibration field is in harmony with other humans, animals and plants. This synergistic energy, or aura, can be disturbed when other disharmonizing frequencies constantly interfere with it. Many modern technologies, such as computer screens, laptops, television sets, radio hi-fi systems, microwave ovens, WI FI connections, smart meters, and the commonly used cell-phone, all have electromagnetic waves in order to carry out transmission functions.Take a Tour
When you think about your breath as being your link to life, it takes on a whole new meaning. In our fast-paced lives, most of us forget to breathe fully as everything occupies our minds, except for breathing. We are often so caught up in meeting the needs of family, work, etc., that we fail to nurture ourselves. When my daughter was born I noticed how every single part of her body moved with her breath. It reminded me that deep breathing is as natural to us as it is a child, and it fades away as we get older, unless we pay it some attention.Take a Tour
College offers many delicious temptations. You are finally on your own and free to eat what you want, when you want it, and NO ONE is there to tell you no or shove more liver and peas onto your plate. You can pile on the portions in the dining hall, eat dinners of all the junk food (pizza, burgers, French fries and ice cream), and indulge in sugary and salty snacks to fuel late-night study sessions. In addition, you may not get as much exercise as you did in high school, and staying out late with friends (including 3 am social dining) have led to horrible eating habits and, well, a few gained pounds.Take a Tour
There has been some dabble into the up and coming popular basil seeds (that resemble chia seeds), in that they may help control blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes (according to the Sutter Gould Medical Foundation). Why is this so? Basil seeds seem to help the controlling of blood sugar in test subjects, and in dieters, it has the potential to help reduce appetite and food cravings and to keep weight loss efforts on track. There are great claims that basil seed drinks help with weight loss, but lacking in sufficient research, these claims have yet to solidify just yet. In Asian countries, such as Thailand, basil seeds are made into a drink, and stores sell these drinks in cans. The intact seeds, combined with water, sugar, honey and sometimes coconut milk, create a thick drink with a consistency similar to tapioca. The traditional recipes, however, are high in sugar. Also in Asia, it is the main ingredient in Italian cuisines.Take a Tour

More than 2,600 people die of heart disease every day, which translates into one cardiovascular death every 33 seconds.
