Notes From the P.E Office

Please remember these 3 simple steps to staying healthy:

1. Eat healthy foods, mostly the vergetable/fruit groups, the whole grain groups, and the egg/beans/fish goups. This also includes drinking alot of water throughout each day.

2. Exercise at least 1 hour per day, to get the heart and breathing racing. It's easy to break it up throughout the day, for those of us who can't get a full hour of time. This could be something like walking to the store instead of driving, or climbing the stairs instead of taking the elevator, or stretching and deep breathing at your work place for 10 minutes, or walking the dogs, or dancing.

3. Sleep well, in a warm, dark, quiet space, for a long time. A good rest is essential for our mind, brain, and body to be well.

There are so many benefits from these simple steps:

1. feeling healthy

2. feeling good about ourselves

3. keeping a healthy body weight

4. increasing our test scores and attention span 5. keeping a high level of energy and endurance 6. increasing life span 7. keeping us strong against diabetes, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis (and more diseases) 8. lifts our spirits and fights against depression 9. reduces stress 10.supplies a euphoric feeling.

Finally, no sugar, no candy, no sodas.

Sugar is the main problem with so many health issues:

1. obesity

2. diabetes

3. tooth decay

4. weak bones

5. decreases appetite for healthy foods

6. increases health and hospital costs

We will feel so good about ourselves, and others, knowing we are doing these simple steps that bring us so many positive aspects in our lives. They're not hard steps, and we can make progress everyday, when we make a couple of changes everyday.

Thank you, and here's to our good health.
