It can be related to your diet, to your activity levels and of course, to your mood. If you want to have more energy, check out these three tips:..”

“..For most seniors, hitting the age of 65 doesn’t mean slowing down. As we age, though, it’s common for our energy levels to dip and many seniors find that, despite wanting to get out and enjoy their golden years, they simply don’t have the energy they once did. This can be a frustrating and discouraging experience.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to be a permanent one.

With a few simple tricks, seniors can boost their energy levels and jump back into life once more. Read on…”

Though the RDA for older adults remains the same as for younger adults, some research suggests their needs may be 1.2 grams/kg body weight in order to prevent the common muscle loss and osteoporosis that come along with aging.[9] Though this doesn’t require the elderly to eat large servings of food, they frequently have poor appetites and dental problems that make chewing difficult.

73-Year-Old on the CrossFit Games Open: “I’m Doing It This Year!”
https://youtu.be/xUb6E81YQ6A
“Nancy Hoshaw survived a heart attack at 48 and breast cancer at 60. At 73, she’s entering the CrossFit Games Open, which kicked off Feb. 25. While some compete to be named Fittest on Earth, Hoshaw is competing with time and age—and she’s winning. After seeing decrepit women on a trip to Israel, Hoshaw decided a slow slide into a retirement home wasn’t for her. “My goal is to stay healthy and independent. I cherish my independence,” she says. Her coach at CrossFit Bay Area in Webster, Texas, is two-time CrossFit Games athlete Jordan Cook. Cook describes CrossFit as a lifestyle, noting how the community keeps people active and energized while they preserve and improve function. “The whole point of … functional fitness is not just to get better at fitness but to help us in our everyday life,” Cook explains. While Hoshaw was dead set against doing the Open last year, she’s all in for 2016. When Cook shared an Instagram video of Hoshaw preparing for the five-week competition about a month ago, she inspired people around the world and found more motivation herself. “I feel like I can encourage other people, but at the same time I’m encouraged myself,” she says. “It’s amazing the doors that you can open if you just … give it a try.” Video by Elliot and Lindsay Schrock. The CrossFit Journal — (http://journal.crossfit.com)..”

World’s fittest 96-year-old, Charles Eugster, shares diet and exercise tips Apr. 22, 2016 at 3:37 PM Scott Stump TODAY today.com
‘….”Retirement is one of the worst things that you can do to yourself,” Eugster told TODAY from his home in Zurich, Switzerland. …

“We must do everything in our power to see that older people are healthy and productive because if we don’t do that we are facing enormous problems between pension liabilities and our health costs,” he said. “We should have retraining facilities for older people. You are throwing away the skills and expertise of people at 65, and that is absolutely ridiculous…

…Eugster also stresses that you’re never too old to get in shape. He didn’t start doing any serious weight training until he was 87, and he didn’t start running until he turned 95. ..

He began working out three days a week in a gym with a former Mr. Universe to put on muscle and also lost 24 pounds before he turned 88. Eugster is currently working with a trainer to get his “beach body” ready for summer despite a hamstring pull at a race on April 13. …”

Here’s how I turned things around

First, I made myself a priority. Many may be depending on you, but you have to be in good mental and physical health to be of service to any of them.

I started down my path to fitness by going for slow runs with walk breaks, and I learned how to do push-ups and other strengthening exercises to prevent bone density loss and, therefore, osteoporosis. (Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise regimen.)

How to “naturally boost” your energy?

We all get tired at some point during the day, right? Well, I do, which I admit mostly because of the lack of sleep due to my “crazy” work schedule (overnight pt job). What about you? Insomnia or some medical reasons? Your a parent and the kids keep you up in the middle of the night? Or you just like to stay up late “playing” on the computer or watching some movie/tv. show? There are many various factors that cause “us busy body people” in our “busy world” to lack energy, so what do you do to “boost” your energy level? Is it healthy?

The #1 “booster” I think of is a “caffeine” high (e.g. coffee, energy drinks, etc..), which I personally don’t think is the “best” way. What is the “best” way? Well, I’ll be sharing some of my personal tips and some “experts” out there that I’ve found and will keep finding (adding below) …

Consider breakfast prime time for packing them in. In the study, people felt that front-loading their whole grains—say, by eating whole-grain cereal and a slice of toast with breakfast (while still including protein, of course)—made it easier to meet their quota…

Sal: I “try” to have my whole grains (e.g. cereal, peanut butter & jelly or egg sandwhich, granola bar, etc..) every morning to “break-fast” for the day. I know many of you like to sleep longer and just get up & go. If you don’t have time to “make” breakfast, I suggest buying those 6-pack breakfast bars in the grocery store as a “back-up” for mornings when you somehow don’t have time to “make” a “sit-down” breakfast meal.

It’s 3 pm on a workday. How do you beat the slump? According to a recent University of Michigan study, the most common strategies are checking email, switching tasks, or making a to-do list. ….

Sal: I usually like to check my email after work and then workout, so I won’t spend too much time on the computer-might get lazy! I love to “learn” as a part-time teacher at the weekly community ed classes I teach (started as a volunteer back in 2004), which the different students that come up with “new” questions just motivates and inspires me to re”search” new “material”. This energizes me. I have a “nightly” routine to make a “to do” list before I go to bed (e.g. reflecting on what I did during the day to help remember what I’ve forgotten on some tasks I need to fulfill) , which motivates me to “wake-up” right away after my alarm goes on instead of laying there and put on the “snooze” button! Having a goal for the next day gets you motivated and “energize” to get up on-time to meet your goals.

It’s not easy getting eight hours of sleep per night. For those of us who are overstressed and sleep-deprived, there’s a healthy way—10 actually—to boosts energy and fuels workouts without the pending sugar crash that comes along with energy drinks. Lisa Moskovitz, R.D., founder of The NY Nutrition Group, shares 10 top energy-boosting foods that are probably already in your kitchen.

“Egg yolks are naturally rich in B-vitamins, which are responsible for converting food into energy and they also have Vitamin D to maintain strong bones. Plus, they’re one of the best sources of protein, which is essential particularly after an intense training session when muscle breakdown occurs the most,” Moskovitz says. …

HEALING


My Mom’s Story – Healed of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!
liveitreal.org
“…I asked the Lord for help, and He delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4..
…I was once a woman full of fear, so heavily weighed down by fears that I was near death. But the Lord Jesus looked at me, called me “Daughter,” and set me free–and continues to set me free. I want to give God all the glory for His amazing work in my life, and share my story in the hope that it will encourage you and let you know there is always hope in Jesus.

At the age of eleven I accepted Jesus as my Saviour, but I did not know the power of His life and His words. I grew up longing to know that I was loved, but I did not know that that was what lay buried under my drive to perform in order to receive the attention that would assure me of being accepted. I did Christian things, very sincerely, but the foundation of my life was weak; it was built mainly on what I could do for God (or so I thought) using my own human strength…

Sal: There are times (e.g. doing house projects, working out in the weight room, etc..) that I’m just so tired, so I “call upon the Lord” for strength
