Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about long-term health.
March is National Nutrition Month. Big Whoop!! I am so glad the nation or who ever sets these months as official, brings the idea of being conscious of our nutrition to the forefront of our minds.
But I think that we should be concerned about our health on a daily, monthly and yearly basis, not just one month. We should be looking at all aspects of health every day; concerns such as what we are eating, how much sleep we are getting, are we exercising frequently and are we getting enough water to drink.
There is a lot of maintenance to keeping our bodies functioning properly for as long as we are here. That means time out of each day dedicated to our long-term health and well- being. Many people take more time and money to keep their car, dog or even their home functioning properly. The sad fact is that the home you really live in, your body, is often neglected or takes a back seat to other aspects of your life.
There is an old saying that if you don’t make time for your body now, it will take time from you later. That may mean a shortened lifespan or more time in bed incapacitated. Neither is a viable outcome in my opinion.
Even though it may not fit into your picture of the perfect day, spend some time doing maintenance on your body. Here are four simple things to do:
- Instead of having your car washed, do it yourself or go for a brisk walk.
- Turn off the TV and read a book in order to get better sleep.
- Keep a large glass or bottle of water handy so you can keep track of the ounces you drink.
- Plan your food intake for the week so you get good nutrition and avoid “emergency” stops at not-so-healthy places.
Remember that your body is really where you live. Take good care of it and it will serve you well.
Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, asks, “Is your pet overweight?” “Too??”
Weight, weight. Don’t tell me!!
Do you know that 50% of all dogs in this country are overweight? We are soothing and rewarding our pets with food. We also do this with our children and ourselves!!
If you think that a 50% rate is bad, get a load of this: 67% of adults in America are overweight and half of those are obese. These are not good statistics.
Most of us have been on diet in our lives. And most of us have been on several diets in our lifetimes. The problem is that most diets don’t work. What does work is a lifestyle change.
The good news is that we have a lifestyle plan that has been clinically proven to change the weight loss to come from fat, instead of the typical weight loss coming from muscles. Weight loss from muscle is not a good thing.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, asks, ” Are you sleeping?” Sleep is very important for all of us. While we are getting rest, our bodies are repairing and rebuilding themselves to be able to function the next day. Here are some reasons why you will want to get the requisite 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night:
- Your productivity and creativity is increased. Sleeping 1 ½ hours less for one night can reduce daytime alertness by as much as 32%.
- Your immune system is enhanced. Extra protein molecules mend the body at the cellular level.
- Your heart health is improved. Adequate sleep decreases stress and inflammation that affect the heart.
- Good sleep improves your memory. During sleep the brain organizes and correlates memories.
- Sleep helps to control body weight. A hormone known as Leptin is increased. Leptin enhances that feeling of fullness after eating. It also decreases the urge for high carbohydrates and high-fat foods.
These seem like excellent reasons to me to plan ahead and get those 7 or 8 hours of sleep. If you are having trouble sleeping, take a look at your routine. Are you watching TV before bed? Are you exercising regularly? Are you eating too late in the evening? Plan your day so that you are ready to get to bed when it is time. Ease into the end of the evening-perhaps with a good book or a cup of warm chamomile tea. If after making plans and following through with them you are still unable to sleep, try an herbal formula that works gently and safely. This one, Gentle Sleep Complex, as well as all Shaklee products, is recommended by Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee Distributor in Dallas.
