A few tips to identify healthy carbohydrates

When we consume carbohydrates, the liver feeds itself and leaves the remainder circulate in the blood to reach muscular cells and brain cells which are very dependent on carbohydrates. The trick is to choosing wisely the type of carbohydrates and in which quantity.   Solid or liquid? It is advised to favor solid carbohydrates, such as fruits that diminish the risk of diabetes, instead of juice, that increases it. First, the intact structure of fruits contains more nutriments. Secondly, it allows the sugar to arrive at a slower pace in the blood stream and liver. How about our favorite soda drinks? When you drink those, the liquid is separated into glucose and fructose. Fructose, on the opposite of glucose, is fully absorbed by the liver, whether it...

Why is physical activity so important for your health and what are the recommendations ?

Why is it so important to be physically active? Obesity, which is linked with physical inactivity, has nearly tripled worldwide since 1975; 39% of adults are now overweight. Physical inactivity and obesity that directly contribute to chronic diseases, which are collectively responsible for 71% of deaths worldwide every year. (World Health Organization, 2020).

Why is sleep so important for your health ?

  Sleep is important for …        Your Waste Clearance & Immune System The glymphatic system is the brain’s dedicated waste clearance system. Glial cells protect, nourish, insulate neurons and play a role in the immune system. Your brain cells’ mitochondria remove cellular waste. This system is very active when you are asleep helping you wake up with a “fresh” mind. (Medical News Today, 2019)   Your Memory and knowledge The non-REM sleep is a deep physiological state of sleep when neurons fire simultaneously. Newly formed memories are strengthened and integrated into existing knowledge. This process is particularly strong during this phase of sleep because of a tight connection between two parts of the brain (one capturing memories of events and places, the other of facts, ideas, and concepts).  (The Atlantic,...

Why you need to train your mind at least as much as your body

In the last decades, many efforts have been done to raise the awareness of physical fitness, fully justified if you ask me. We cannot talk about it enough as we now live in a society where “sitting is called the new smoking.” Yes, indeed, most of us finally realize that our sedative lifestyle in front of screens of all sizes needs to be complemented regularly with extra physical activity to balance our in- and output and to enhance our overall health and well-being. When I address the subject of “conscious self-care” with clients who come to see me in search of a happier, healthier, and wealthier life, most people think about nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Few of them realize that we need to address the total picture...

Two mental tips to enhance your happiness, health and wealth

As we are heading for the third World Wellness Weekend (Sept. 21-22, 2019), we are encouraging you to take quality "me-time" in your busy 24-hour availability life and pay attention to your personal well-being. In this society of high-technology and automation, the more we invest in physical activity and relaxation, the more we help our mental well-being as we increase the flow of oxygen and the amount of endorphins, “the feel-good” chemicals, in the brain. Indeed, regular physical work-out or a visit at a nearby Spa, Fitness club, Yoga/Pilates/Dance studio can help you face chronic stress, which we all know to be destructive to our health and happiness. But what if I told you that we can also look at it the other way and train our...
