When I was a child and my parents took me to the beach, I always remember my dad standing there taking great deep breaths and telling me to breathe deep because the sea air was good for me. Back then, he probably had mo more idea than I did of just why that particular air was so good for me or even why we had to breathe it in so deeply. But it was just one of those things that people did and they all seemed to agree that it did you the power of good.

When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, we are all often bombarded with well meaning warnings about spending too much time in the sun, what with skin cancer and premature aging among the things that no one really wants to be getting. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide under a wide brimmed hat the whole time you are out of doors, nor does it mean that you have to stay indoors all the time there is daylight. Unless of course you are a vampire.
So what is the reality here? Is the sun really so bad for us, or are we turning our backs on a free source of health and vitality?

Well, there doesn’t seem much in the way of arguments about the detrimental effects to a person’s health when they spend all day, every day stuck in front of a computer, whether it be their job, or a way of whiling away the hours playing computer games or idly surfing the Internet for whatever.
It all adds up to a sedentary lifestyle which is definitely bad for you if you do it for a prolonged period. When weeks turn into months, then you are going to need to think of ways to counteract the lack of exercise that sitting still for several hours (or more) every day entails.

To follow on from my last article in this mini series on How Healthy is Your Diet? which looked at why soda is so bad for you, I decided to switch sides and look at something that is good for you. In our society that seems hell bent on poisoning itself with processed foods, additive and saturated fat laden junk and all manner of other unhealthy stuff that the media does a very good job of convincing us that it is all good, a natural progression toward more health giving foods would be a good choice of moves.

Most of us have tried or at least seen one of those chairs that have built in massagers to take care of all the tension in your back and legs. They seem like a luxury item, and thanks to quite a hefty price tag most of us won’t be able to afford them in our homes, but we can use them in places like health spas for a small price.
It seems though that these massage chairs are not only a luxury item for people who can’t think of anything else to do with their money, but they can also bring about quite a few benefits for people who have gone through heart surgery, or are otherwise heart patients.
In this post, I’d like to talk about how we can stay healthy despite it all. By that I mean how we as a race manage to remain in a healthy state even though we are fed on a diet of food that is mass produced, full of potentially harmful artificial additives and deficient in many of the essential vitamins and minerals that we need. So let’s look at that in more detail and discover what we can do and are doing to improve the odds against suffering ill health.
The mineral and nutrient deficiency in the vast majority of food that we buy is a serious problem that the enlightened amongst us can do quite a lot about. First thing that needs to happen is for more people to stand up and tell the food industry that this is just not good enough.
