Unwind Your Mind

RELAX!! Seriously, it could improve your quality of life if you simply RELAX.

I was listening to a speaker from Caring Days Adult Day Care here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama about taking care of our loved one’s as they age. This is a day care center for individuals with some form of memory disorder (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, etc). She shared some very interesting statistics (that I can not remember exactly) about the number of people that will actually have some form of dementia by the age of 65. I believe that this number was 1 in 3. Individuals of African American descent are at a higher risk with developing risk for memory loss. We may call this “going crazy” or “loosing our mind,” but really it is the beginning of something that is treatable.

The guest speaker from Caring Days went on to mention that the caregiver(s) for this individual really takes on a lot of unhealthy stress. This individual does not get a moment to relax and unwind. Statistics show that more likely then not, the caregiver is going to be the one to die first. This is because of stress.

So, UNWIND YOUR MIND! It is never to early to destress. You can add quality years to your life. Here are a few tips:

  1. Develop a healthy attitude.
  2. Exercise regularly.
  3. Keep your mind active.
  4. Limit your alcohol consumption.
  5. Fully understand any medications that you take.
  6. Watch your diet and the portions that you eat.
  7. Find a doctor that you trust.
  8. Keep your soul healthy.
  9. Meditate.
  10. Enjoy your life!!!!!!!!!!!
