S.H.I.E.L.D.: A New “Synonym” for Health

April (next month) is National Nutrition Month, but this tidbit couldn’t wait. Just saw a part of Deepak Chopra and his colleage on TV and this is what I caught on their talk about Brain, Body & Mind Connections.

S.H.I.E.L.D.

is for sleep, at least 7-8 hours, if not all at once, then have a nap to make up the difference. (Yay! I love to nap!)

H is for Handling Stress with several methods such as meditation, laughing, etc.

I is for Interaction with others, whether it be friends, family, or colleagues. And let’s not forget pets!

E is for Exercise, and as Deepak pointed out, no need to overdo, just moderate exercise will be beneficial.

L is for Laughter, which we all know is good for us to relieve stress, to let off steam, to promote good feelings, etc.

D is for Diet, with an emphasis on whole foods (not factory foods).

This is my new answer for: “How do you spell HEALTH?” I spell it: S.H.I.E.L.D.
