MY FIRST PODCAST

Last month I was interviewed on my first podcast.  I am a planner addict and attended a local conference for planner addicts.  It was so fun and I really enjoyed being able to talk about my other passion, helping other people be the healthiest version of themselves.  This blog isn’t to lecture to make you feel bad about what you are or are not doing.  Instead, it is information that I gather from reliable sources written into an easy to read format.   I want this to be a place where information is shared by me but also discussions between all of us.  Because in the end, we all want to be happy and healthy.  We want to be understood and supported.  This is a safe place to talk about the things that worry us and the things that make us smile.  Come walk with me.

Although I need to work on my public speaking skills, I hope you enjoy listening to this podcast.

BENEFITS OF VITAMIN D

My full time job is indoors without any sunlight.  Not to mention that I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.  And for a good portion of my life, I was overweight.  According to the Harvard (https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/vitamin-d/), these factors increase my risk of vitamin D deficiency.  

But what does Vitamin D do for your body?

* Vitamin D works with both calcium and phosphorus to help your bone grow strong as                 well as fight off disease and deadly cancer cells.  

* It is believed that Vitamin D also assists with strengthening muscles.  

* Prevent heart disease

* Studies show that the vitamin protects the body from type 1 diabetes and the flu

What can you do?

* Regular medical checkups with your doctor

* At least 15 minutes a day in the sunlight (with sunscreen on)

* Keep body weight within healthy BMI limits

* Daily multivitamin supplements (especially if you are losing weight)

When I think about how good it feels to sit in the sun for a few minutes, I do believe it feels good because it is suppose to be good for you.  Our bodies are amazing works of art.  If we take care of them, we can live happily and strong.     

What do you do to ensure you get enough Vitamin D?  Leave a comment below.  Love and happiness. - Jenn
