NORDIC GUIDE TO LIVING TEN YEARS LONGERDR BERTIL MARKLUND Book Number: 90208 Product format: Hardback
Research shows that a person who exercises for at least three hours a week is biologically ten years younger than someone who doesn't exercise. After the age of 30, your muscle mass slowly starts to reduce and this has to be counteracted in good time. Movement rejuvenates the body: stress affects the whole body, eating up energy and consuming nutrients with hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol released making blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipid (fat) levels rise. This increases free radicals, inflammation in the body rises and the immune system is damaged causing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, infection and cancer. Combat stress through daily exercise, reinvigorating sleep, breathing properly, learning to forgive, reading books, listening to music, singing in a choir, taking control and time out. All about sleep, sun and vitamin D, eating yourself healthy, antioxidants, super drinks, omega 3, low GI foods, choosing the right drink, keeping your weight in check, oral health and the dangers of loneliness. The Danes have their Hygge and the Swedes have Lagom, an even-keeled approach to a life of balance and here a doctor and researcher from Gothenburg University with over 40 years experience provides pragmatic and realistic advice. Nice clear layout, 154pp.
