Create a new ritual of going for a walk, ride or play boule or croquet after Christmas lunch.


I'm laughing out loud at this one!  Up here, it would have to be "snow boule"!

Great topic, Kerry!  LOL at Paul's post, too.  :laugh:

The only one I could honestly commit to was number 12, so I think I have some work to do!  But those are sure good things to have in mind as we go through the next two weeks.  Who knows, I may actually accomplish a few of them.  8)

What a wonderful list, Kerry.  I felt inspired reading it.  It sounds like a great way to live throughout the year.  Cute graphic too.

Lol at the list. I'm not one for working out or doing any sports at all. Be it on Christmas or the rest of the year.
But I actually found two items to click: when treating yourself, choose the best treat. And of course, I'm enjoying Christmas very much. Looking so much forward to family reunions.

Oh, and I barely ever drink alcohol, not even spritzer instead of wine pure. So I guess I have at least one healthy habit :).

I do offer fresh cherries,
since they have saved my life many times, even lately;
I saw too that they have saved tohers persons lives,
so I give some away..
when I can!

Not the added sugar to ones; because they do the opposite, surely,
as they do not help one remain or get healthy!

  Fresh Cherries May Help Arthritis Sufferers

Fresh Bing cherries.
(K11182-1) Arthritis hurts. But fresh cherries may help.

Results of a preliminary study by ARS scientists and their university colleagues suggest that some natural compounds in plump, juicy Bing cherries may reduce painful arthritic inflammation. Eating cherries may also help lessen the severity of other inflammatory conditions, such as cardiovascular disease or cancer.


Cherries already have a reputation for fighting inflammation. So what's new about the ARS study?


"Our test is among the first to track anti-inflammatory effects of fresh Bing cherries in a controlled experiment with healthy volunteers," says chemist Robert A. Jacob, who led the investigation. Jacob is now retired from the ARS Western Human Nutrition Research Center in Davis, California.

In previous studies at other laboratories, scientists analyzed extracts from sweet or tart cherries in vitro to learn more about the fruit's potential health-promoting properties. In contrast to these test-tube experiments, the California study is apparently the first to test key inflammatory disease indicators, or markers, in blood samples from healthy volunteers who were fed precise amounts of fresh Bing cherries. Reported in a 2003 issue of the Journal of Nutrition, the California investigation paved the way for a recent followup study at the Davis center

The darker they are these fresh cherries, the better ?

Oops, I forgot to take the snow into account. Make that indoor boule!   ;D

(I looove the cute little monkey playing snow boule, Paul)   :D
