FINDING TIME TO WORKOUT EACH DAY
Betty from Detroit wants to know how to make myself workout each day. Marsha M. wants to know how to find the time each day to work out because she cannot find it!
Everyone on the planet has the same 24 hours a day. 1 of those hours is only 4% of your day. Does your health and fitness deserve 4% of your day and life? Think about what you do for one hour’s time. Do you watch television? Is that tv show more important than your health? Can you sit on that exercise bik
Start somewhere! Start with walking just 15 minutes a day on a break or at lunchtime. Start with just 3 days a week. Don’t throw out the whole idea of exercise if you cannot make the time for an hour each day to start. Everyone needs to start somewhere with with working out and getting out of the house and around the block is a start. Maybe you walk while dinner is cooking. Maybe you get home, change out of the those work clothes and go for a walk before transitioning to your home life? Maybe you grab the kids and they walk with you as part of your daily connecting and routine? Find the time on your calendar starting today! Find me 15 minutes today to go for a walk.
WORKING OUT AT THE OFFICE OR AT HOME
Listener Mary Beth wants to know to exercise at her desk during the day. Dr. Dave does many home exercises that can be done at home or work. You can do lunges, squats, pull ups. Dr. Dave has one of those $15 pull up bars in his door. You can do planks which are good for your core. These all can be done in 5 minutes at a time. Get some inexpensive dumbbells and do some arm workouts. If you are mom, your kids love to workout out with you. They can do it with you and count you down doing crunches too! Yoko suggests doing squats while brushing your teeth. Or fold your clothes on the floor and sit and stretch while folding clothes. Dr. Dave loves his standing desk and standing while working. Some people use a big balance ball at their desks instead of a chair to work on their core. Just find ways to work it in.
FOOD AS DRUG OR ADDICTION
Listener Jane B. wants to know how to deal with a food addiction. Many people use food as a soother for emotional issues. People are using food not to nourish their bodies, but to nourish other parts of them. Many people eat food when they are sad or stressed or bored. Yoko suggests that maybe people are filling holes in their heart with food. Maybe you start with what you are trying to fill with food and get some help with therapy. Why are you eating for non-nourishing reasons?
Now, another thing to consider is that Dr. Dave and Yoko are vegan, plant only eaters now. It takes a whole lot to fill you up on plant only diet. You could eat all the vegetables like crazy and not put on weight. 🙂
HOW DO YOU BECOME A GREAT SPEAKER? WHERE DO YOU BEGIN?
Listener Janetsa R. wants to know how to be a speaker. You have got to start speaking in front of groups. You could join your local toastmasters, which are local groups for people that want to learn how to speak. For more information on Toastmasters International: http://www.toastmasters.org/. You need to figure out your topic(s) and find who would want to listen to you. Speaking is teaching and helping others. What do you have to offer to other people? What is your passion? Then find a small group, find local church group, find club and start talking. Dr. Dave believes in also being well prepared for your topic and outline it and research it. You can practice in the mirror and even record yourself and time yourself how long your talk is. Don’t give up and keep practicing in front of real live people.
WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING YOU GET FROM BEING HEALTHY?
Listener Charlotte asks what is the most valuable thing you get from being healthy? Dr. Dave says, “Waking up and enjoying each and every day!” Being healthy allows you to enjoy each day being great. “Being healthy brings you happiness,” says Yoko. “When you are healthy you can do anything you want!” says Yoko. How you spend your time or time with your loved ones is greatly affected by your health. Living your life in health and fit and strong is a whole different life than one that is sick and unhealthy and not able to really live your life.
EATING BEFORE BED
Listener Joe wants to know what to have at night for a snack. He needs to eat some food before bed for medication. Dr. Dave and Yoko do not recommend eating just before bed. Can Joe back up the time and not have it right before bed. Could it be 2 hours before bed? When you do eat before bed it should not be fruit or carbs. It should be something like nuts or almond butter or beans.
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH STRESS?
Listener Doc Doc Webber wants to know what to do about stress. Life has stress and there is no avoiding it. #1 was to cope with stresses of life is meditation! Listen to Dr. Dave and Yoko put you through a quick meditation on this show!
