Turning Your Workday Into Weight Loss

Hi there!

It's me Svetlana.

This article by Alan Mozes (HealthDay Reporter - Thu Apr 1, 2010) can be very helpful if we extract a main message from it: move more during the day if you are doing a desk job! Do something, even if something is standing or tapping your foot on the floor.

BARCELONA, Spain – Up to a third of breast cancer cases in Western countries could be avoided if women ate less and exercised more, researchers at a conference said Thursday, renewing a sensitive debate about how lifestyle factors affect the disease.

Better treatments, early diagnosis and mammogram screenings have dramatically slowed breast cancer, but experts said the focus should now shift to changing behaviors like diet and physical activity.

3 Unique Slow Exercises to Shape Up for Spring (slow and deliberate movements may be better for your body!).

Hi there!

It's me Svetlana.

You aready know that I always advocate exercises that are not too harsh on the body, and don't leave you in pain. Exercise routine has to be easy enough and enjoyable in order to stick to it for years. Some people love pain, but especially as we grow older, gentle approach to exercise is important. If we are used to work out really hard at younger age, the body may be worn out to some degree and not be able to cope with the same stress on joints, muscles, and bones anymore, and we may quit because of the repetitive injuries.

The key is to remain physically active FOR LIFE, and preferrably, for a very LONG LIFE. Thus take it easy, respect your body, and your body will serve you for many years to come.
