Irony: Diet Gurus Who Died Early - Breathing Space Blog

"Advocating for fitness and good nutrition wasn't enough to save "seven health experts  from an early demise."  Certainly heredity has much to do with our longevity. In general, consuming good nutrition daily is not a gimmick, fad, or outlandish approach to consumption. Greens, beans, and berries, along other staples will carry you far.

Water Works - Breathing Space Blog

Drink a lot of water. Often when you're pooped, you need water more than sleep. Guzzling a glass of water can keep you active longer. When you're in a shopping mall for example, and feel the need to sit down, take a seat if you have to, but first look for a water fountain. That in itself might be enough to rejuvenate you and prompt you to walk for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Drinking more water results in more frequent urination, which is good. Most of us don't drink enough in the course of a day. Whenever you feel thirsty, your body already has experienced a prolonged water deficit.

Working out, as well as dealing with others at work or with your family at home, can be rigorous. Your body is giving up a lot of fluid via perspiration, even if you don't know it. Drink more water more often and whenever you even suspect that your body needs water.

Drink, drink, and be merry.

In Front of the Screen, Brain Dead - Breathing Space Blog

The Daily Mail, in the U.K. reported in 2012: "One of Britain's leading inventors has warned that a 'Google generation' who rely upon the internet for everything is in danger of becoming 'brain-dead'. Trevor Baylis, who invented the wind-up radio, said children are losing creativity and practical skills because they spend too much time in front of screens."

"...the next generation of inventors is being lost, with young people often unable to make anything with their hands."
