Over a half million people die every year from heart disease. Although heart disease in some cases can be cured, the key to avoiding heart disease is prevention.
According to the Mayo Clinic, there are five key steps to preventing heart disease:
1) Do not use tobacco of any kind (luckily, smoking is no longer considered cool)
2) Try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day (a walk is one of those things that's only tough to get started, but you love it once your up and moving)
I've been practicing yoga on and off for a number of years, really having trouble sticking to a consistent routine. For the past week I've propelled myself into daily practice every morning to help heal some injuries I sustained to my back and to help clear my mind. Yoga does a lot of things for my mind and body that tea also does. I've been thinking about all of the parallels between yoga and tea:
- tea and yoga settle and stimulate my mind
Anyone who knows me would describe me as a gym rat. Other than a good cup of tea, there's nothing I love more at the end of a long day of work than hitting the weight room floor.
But all of my workouts leave me with one negative side effect: soreness.
I'm sure you are familiar with it: the day after hitting a new personal record in deadlifts or your first 10-mile run, you're sore. This soreness, known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) can persist for days and, in severe cases, can even interfere with day-to-day life.
“Picture two middle-aged mice, born at the same time. One suffers from gray hair, shriveled muscles, and creaky joints. He's a pint-size Wilford Brimley. The other mouse, meanwhile, looks healthy and young—Jack LaLanne in his fifties. Why the contrast? While the geriatric mouse lived a sedentary life in his cage, his younger-looking contemporary literally outran the effects of aging,” says Outside magazine.
I recently turned 23, I know, I’m still very young (or at least I hope that’s what you’re thinking). Yet still, no matter the age, birthdays always get me thinking about the past and what I want to happen in the future, before the next tick mark, 24. And as so, I’ve created a system, perhaps stolen from another, 23 things to do before 24.
It’s a list I put heavy thought into, much differently than my usual daily to-do jots. Among this year’s list: learn more about tea, become proficient in Spanish (as I’m moving to Spain next fall), keep studying Chinese, maintain target weight, run a marathon.
It is widely known that there are many health benefits to drinking tea which aids a wide variety of audience, even workout buffs. Below are the top three reasons why gym enthusiasts should drink tea:
1. Tea leads to a healthy heart. Dieting and exercise are the main ways to combat heart disease. Research has suggested that tea drinking is associated with improved cardiovascular health....
Some people just have strict daily routine. I know this, I have friends who are. They always go to the same bakery to get the same pastry; they remember to put everything to its original places. I am not one of them. I usually take risks, especially about food and drink. So when I come up with a really fantastic way of drinking tea, it’s cause for much celebration and publication on the Internet.
I just bought a big pack of hot chocolate, a box of Vanilla sleeptime herbal tea( I am a vanilla-smell savvy. This milky and sweet smell makes me addicted.) and a bottle of skim milk from the grocery.
When the camelia sinensis plant gave birth, she produced a similar yet very distinctive set of quadruplets: green, white, oolong and black. The siblings that shine the most are the oldest and the youngest...green and black. As the youngest, black tea has for many generations been the spoiled, all American favorite especially in southern households as it is welcomed with every meal, iced. Green tea, although it chose to go backpacking around the world and thus developed a finer sense of appreciation, has far lived in the shadow of its youngest sibling at home...
What's fabulous about LA is that you can wake up in the morning, have your breakfast, and decide to spend yourhard earned day offat the beach... in no time. This past weekend we ventured out to sunny Malibu for our third stair-climb, gaining one step closer to conquering our Mount Whitney feat. Continuing our exercising with tea adventures, our featured tea of choice was Silver Needle white tea, no sweetener, chilled.
On their own, both tea and exercise have many benefits to one's health. But did you know that there are identical and specific results from tea drinking and physical exertion? And by drinking tea—as opposed to just plain water—during exercise, these results can be doubled?! Take a look at the list below of the similar effects tea and exercise can have on your mental and physical health, and start using tea as your beverage of choice during your cardio or strength workout routines!
• Increases metabolic rate
• Increases endurance
• Boosts mental alertness
• Boosts immune system
