“THE POWER” BOOK BY RHONDA BYRNE
Yoko is reading a book that their yoga master Sandy gave them. She hasn’t finished the book but wanted to share some of what it about. The author Rhonda Byrne says that Love is the Power! Love is the key of life. You can change everything with love. “If you want to lose weight. Imagine you have the body you love, instead of imagining yourself as overweight.” Then by loving yourself and your body and you will receive the body you imagined.

QUESTIONS OF THE SHOW
Listener Mary Beth asks:
“How do you get exercise in when you are at a desk job all day?”
Dr. Dave’s first answer is planking. His goal right now is 2 to 2.5 minutes. You can start with planking for 30 seconds and each week increase it by 30 seconds until you are in the 2-3 minute range. Some other ideas are push-ups, jumping jacks, squats, and yoga poses. You need to give your eyes and mind a break from those computers. You need to get out of your chair, get moving around, and get your blood flowing.
Yoko also recommends to her clients to get out at lunch time and walk around the building or outdoors if you can. She also suggests to make sure you stretch and rotate your neck.
Dr. Dave has a stand up desk in his office and they have even seen treadmill desks too! A set of 3lb, 5lb, or 8lb weights are a good idea to some arm exercises while working or on breaks.

Another question comes from listener Larry:
“Why do people give up and act old after the age of 50?”
Yoko says that the average age of first-time grandparent is 47. Many people have this mindset that they are old and start acting and being old. Dr. Dave went to a high school reunion a few years ago and was astonished at how old some people looked and acted. But there were also people on the other end of the spectrum like Dr. Dave that were fit and healthy and take care of their bodies and care what they eat. The lifestyle you have been living shows on your on the outside or inside! This is why Dr. Dave says to start now and start today. If you do not have your health, you will live a very limited life! Slice your Age in half and start making healthy decisions and choices!
And listener David Kimmel, who is a long distance skateboarder:
“What kind of socks do you run in?”
The kind of socks Dr. Dave wears are called “Experia” by Thorlos https://www.thorlo.com/activity/miscellanous/experia-reg-socks. Dr. Dave has tried many many kinds of socks over his dozens of years of running and these are absolutely the best. Yoko also recommends using “Sport Slick” http://www.sportslick.com/ lubricant for when you are doing long distances walking, running, and hiking. Also, Yoko recommends using duct tape! If you have a hot spot on your feet to use instead of a band-aide; it is incredible for your feet. She learned this on a backpacking trip. Just add some around a water bottle and use it when you need it. FYI – These long distance skateboarders go 35, 50, and 90 miles in successive days for one of their races!
