unleash your inner child. go to the play ground with your kids and run around with them.....and get on the swing set (the one for the bg kids of course) and swing swing swing. you will find that you use your abs, legs, back, and arms to swing. and it will also put a huge smile on your face! but remember, share the swing with the other kids!! :D
If you are depressed or tired all the time...try this
Drink coffee which improves mood, increase your vitamin B complex and B12, eat high protein foods which have amino acids in them that tell the brain to feel good. Foods high in fiber such as beans, oats, brown rice, apples, fruits & vegetables will also help change mood. Skip anything with sugar as sugar can make you feel sluggish and crabby because of the swings in blood sugar levels. After the sugar high one can become even more tired and irratible. Get some sun, drink Milk, take vitamin D.
Extreme Cravings can be caused by Food Sensitivities
I have struggled with extreme cravings for years. Recently with my doctors approval, I went on a gluten free diet. What a difference!!! I always thought the cravings and mood swings were due to sugar and/or hormones. But wheat was the biggest problem!
Sugar and dairy products can affect me too, but not as much as the wheat. It's a bummer that what I most crave is what has become toxic and I most need to avoid! The good news is that once I get off them, the cravings stop.
