Recently, I have put a lot of thought into positive thinking and the health of the human mind. My grandfather was in his ninety’s when he passed away last summer. His mind was still sharp and fully engaged when he made his peaceful transition. My grandfather was so alive – he loved life and loved to share conversation. His model for living and being has been a great model for me over the years. It has taught me to express life and to be alive every day.
I have found a passion for researching the mind’s health and discovering what contributes to healthy aging of our minds – it is truly a blessing to have your wits and wellness about you. If you are like me, then you are not about to sit back and watch your mind age “un-well” and are proactive about practicing healthy living every day in order to keep your mind thriving for years to come.
The good news is that nearly 70% of how your brain ages is determined by how you take care of your body when you are younger. Human Touch has designed world-renown massage chairs to help us take care of ourselves and relax and recharge our mind every day. Additional factors such as your diet, exercise, activities and social ties are all powerful determinants in the health and wellbeing of your mind. Eating a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains and Omega-3 fatty acids from fish, nuts and seeds are powerful contributors to your mind’s overall health. While exercise is a known elixir for your mind, we often forget that relaxation and recharging is also a key player in prolonging health. Human Touch has dedicated itself to designing massage chairs that help us relax and relive our bodies of daily stresses so that we may take care of ourselves in the present and look forward to the future.
Putting yourself on the top of your “to do list” is not always an easy task. So if you need a little encouragement, take a look at your life and ask yourself… Who and what do I love? What makes me cry with joy and laugh with my belly? What makes me feel alive?
I trust that the answers to these questions will be all you need to love yourself and enjoy the adventure of celebrating you! May your day and life be blessed with peace and positivity.
