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

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

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.


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.

P.S. To see the whole program from PBS, go to this link:

Laughter is Good for the Heart

Friday, February 21st, 2014

While visiting a friend at the nursing home where my mother-in-law resided, I found a sheet of paper that I borrowed and typed up because I thought the wording was clever and thought it could be your laugh, or at least smile, of the day. Here it is, although I don’t know the source.

Lexiphile is a word used to describe those that love a play on words, such as: You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish, or:

To write with a broken pencil…is pointless.

When fish are in schools, they sometimes…take debate.

A thief who stole a calendar…got twelve months.

When the smog lifts in Los Angeles…U.C.L.A.

The batteries were given out…free of charge.

A dentist and a manicurist married…They fought tooth & nail.

A will is a …dead giveaway.

With her marriage, she got a new name…and a dress.

When you’ve seen one shopping center….you’ve seen a mall.

Police were called to a day care where a three-year old was…resisting a rest.

Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off?…He’s all right now.

A bicycle can’t stand alone…it is too tired.

When a clock is hungry…it goes back four seconds.

The guy who fell into an upholstery machine…was fully recovered.

He had a photographic memory…which was never developed.

Thos who get too big for their britches will be…exposed in the end.

When she saw her first strands of gray hair…she thought she’d dye.

Acupuncture…a jab well done!

A boiled egg…is hard to beat.
