A Report on Purpose

It isn’t just The push for a healthier diet and a healthier lifestyle is global.

In the news this week is how 40 stores in the Connecticut area have signed up to be a part of a healthy-food reform program. Researchers with the University of Connecticut are evaluating data on how store owners have benefited from replacing 5% of the shelf space from junk food to healthier items, according to a report by Lucy Nalpathanchil on WNPR.

But is it just food and diet? Is that all there is to healthy reform? Can something also be said about a healthier attitude?

Scott Mendelson, M.D., author of Beyond Alzheimer’s was featured in the Huffington Post as saying that the numbers of people suffering from Dementia will double by the year 2020; that research has shown that people that have long histories of Major Depression are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s Dementia than those that do not; and that the simple and free benefits of simply recognizing your purpose in life can actually make a difference. The report says in part, “Healthy diet, good sleep and exercise are often seen as the “natural way” to keep the mind healthy and avoid dementia. This is rightfully so. It is certainly the case that diabetes, heart disease, obesity, sleep apnea, and vitamin deficiencies are risk factors for Alzheimer’s that can be prevented or treated. However, we often neglect the fact that having healthy attitudes and emotions, stimulating our minds with education and challenging work, and maintaining social interactions with other people are also important in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s dementia.”

About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
