Happy 80th Birthday!!!

What an inspiration..

We did a little surprise for one of our awesome ladies, Nanette on Tuesday..

Who celebrated her 80th birthday..

The same day she did her 105th Fruci Fit Session – well done 🙂 

A real inspiration..

Which brings me on to what a recent 2020 review in the ‘Nutrients’ Journal discussed when it comes to longevity.

Here’s what they found:

  1. Exercise –

→ 12 weeks of exercise reduced proinflammatory markers in the body

→ HighER intensity exercise showed benefits for people with rheumatoid arthritis. 

→ Higher fitness levels are associated with improvements in T cells / white blood cells which boost immune system 

→ Postmenopausal women following successful breast cancer treatment showed increase in T cells (suggests healthy immune system) after exercise programme. 

2. Tryptophan –an amino acid protein found in eggs, fish, meats and legumes. 

Linked with serotonin, cognitive function and mood. 

3. Omega 3 fats – found in oily fish / algae. 

Important for preserving muscle, improving mood and has anti inflammatory properties

Interesting stuff..

And of course there is more..

I discussed this in more details with researcher Richie Kirwin here:

So I will leave you with this:

If you don’t prioritise you …

No one else will..

Because everyone else will come to you 

To help them achieve their priorities…

They don’t mean to get in the way

It’s just everyone is doing their best, for them…

^^^ read that again.

And what if …

You could actually help more people by looking after you first?

Who else would benefit if you put yourself first today?

And this isn’t about trying to do something..

This is about getting better at DOING.

Even if it is grabbing a glass of water before each meal today..

Getting protein in your breakfast.

Small habits, compound effect.
