How To Stay Healthy Beyond Age 30: Why You Should Be Drinking

No more excuses, here it is: Why You Should Be Drinking. We are here to help.

In addition to the physical benefits of drinking, drinking provides an outlet for the pent-up feelings of our lives. It’s important to realize that a good night’s sleep is more than just good for the body (not taking care of your physical life is a bad sign). There are also mental benefits of being able to relax, release emotions, and celebrate life. Here’s some good stuff we can all benefit from for a better life.

A note about alcohol and blood-sugar levels.

Drinking alcohol is a natural and safe way to lower your blood-sugar levels, but not all drinkers have the same levels of the hormone. Just because you have a low blood-sugar level doesn’t mean you will have a low alcohol level. To put it frankly, most of us have a bit of alcohol around and if you have a big drink on a regular basis, that’s even better.

A Note On The “No More Excuses” List

This page contains a list of excuses for staying the same, as well as a list of excuses to change. That would probably be your best line of defense, but some are true as well. The most common reasons are: 1. You are stuck in your old ways of living. Maybe you think you are just not good with money or are afraid to let go of “traditional” family ties. You don’t love your job, you don’t love the people who are close to you, you don’t want to leave them, or you feel trapped. You just don’t know what to do. Some people take their own lives.

2. Being the oldest member of the family or the second oldest doesn’t bring joy to the relationship.

3. You don’t have a lot of money (or you don’t know how to be self sufficient)

4. You feel stuck and think that you might as well do the same thing and get by.

5. You’ve tried all sorts of things for years to become healthy and still no one seems to think your ideas are worthwhile.

6. You don’t like those you are close to, or you don’t want to take responsibility for a big part of their lives.

7. It’s so much better to just make a change and enjoy the change than to try to hold anything you’ve got.

I hope you will take one of these excuses from the “No More Excuses” list and do something about it, to improve both your health and your life. You’ll have a whole new outlook on life.

A note about depression.

A large number of people with depression or problems with the mood don’t realize that their depression can be caused by unhealthy conditions in their lives. Here’s a list of healthy lifestyle factors that you might not know about:

1. Your heart and immune systems are not able to regulate in the way you want them to.

2. You are not eating enough fiber and vitamin C.

3. You are not exercising enough.

4. You are drinking too much, or too small a portion.

5. You’re not getting enough rest.

If you’re experiencing depression or if you can relate to someone else, you might want to talk to a doctor. The most important things you can do is to talk to a trained doctor or therapist, or take a number of medication that is prescribed by a doctor.

If you have been trying for about a year, I think it’s safe to say that many of you have become addicted to sugar.

The reason sugar is addictive is that it gets into your “comfort zone.”
