Exercise ideas • Walk/running with music. Preferably on a scenic route: ocean, forest, bush, park. Driving 5-10 minutes to a beautiful location could be rewarding! • Swimming (ocean or pool) • Room or backyard exercises • Mountain climbing • Stair climbs • Classes: Zumba, Water Aerobics, Pilates etc. • Dancing • If you have the equipment, watch your favorites television series whilst on the walker/treadmill • Gym with friends • Yoga • Stand Up Paddle Boarding • Surfing • Cycling • Skip Rope • Rollerblading Gymnastics


Food benefits The flavonoids and antioxidants found in spinach, particularly the antioxidant beta-carotene, have been shown in multiple studies to help combat many cancers, including breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. Spinach also boosts eye health and has strong anti-ageing properties.

Celery is from the same family with parsley and fennel, the Umbelliferae family. It can grow to the height of up to 16 inches. The white celery is grown shaded from direct sunlight, thus has less chlorophyll, compared to its greener counterparts.

The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances--notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene--that promote immunity and fight infection.

Kale has 134 percent of your daily vitamin C needs (twice as much as an orange), 206 percent of your vitamin A recs and 684 percent of your daily vitamin K. It has more calcium per serving than milk and is loaded with ALA, an important omega 3 fatty acid that keeps your brain sharp and heart throbby. Bonus: All of the nutrition in this catwalk wonder is super easy for the human bod to absorb.


Exercise A great way to enjoy life while also getting fit and healthy is surfing. Surfing has been a huge part of my life the past year and I have become healthier, happier because of the ocean.

Stand up paddle boarding is another way to enjoying the ocean and the sun. It helps with building arm strength and also getting fit and healthy.

Skateboarding is great for burning calories and staying in good shape. Depending on your size, you might shred between 150 and 500 calories per hour. I find running in the mornings a great way to get fit and health and also have fun listing to music or watching the sunrise. Being fit and healthy is one of the best ways to stay happy and positive. 5
