Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art that has become very popular because of it’s low-impact and relatively easy movements. While it is good for the body overall, it is also great for the mind – it has been called “meditation in motion” and has a very calming effect. When doing Tai Chi, one moves in a series of smoothly transitioning poses which improve muscle control and balance. It is perfect for beginner exercisers and beneficial to people of all ages.
Swap out salt for fresh or dried herbs and spices. We Americans are almost all guilty of overdoing it when it comes to our sodium intake. Reducing the amount of salt you consume will help those of us with high blood pressure. Re-train your palate to enjoy less-salty flavors by mixing in new herbs and spices to your recipes – garlic is a great substitute here, as it has a strong flavor and goes well with most meats and vegetables. You can get creative with what’s currently in your spice rack, or try out new blends available at the grocery store. Just make sure the label says “salt free” before you buy.
Another easy way to reduce your salt intake? Don’t use it when cooking. Just add a dash over top of your food after it is on your plate – the flavor will be much stronger. And, always taste your food before you add the salt, you might like it as much or more without!
