music therapy

Standard

Music has alwas been a great healer. In the bible we learn how david played the harp to help ease his severe depression of king saul.  Music is a significant mood-changer and reliever of stress, working on many levels at once.  Many experts suggest that it is the rythm of the music or the beat that has the calming effect on us although we may not be very conscious about it.  They point out that when we were a baby in our mothers womb, we probably were influenced by the heart beat of out mother.

So get your favorite songs together and find your happy place and turn it up!!!

counting calories

Standard

counting calories is hard to do at first. once you start counting and realizing how many calories are in the tasty things that we consume it gets easier to think before we eat.  Esp when you walk/run on the treadmill for 24 min and only burn 168 calories when the candy bar you had as a mid afternoon snack was 280 calories… there are tools online that you can type in the food and it gives you the calories it contains. there are also websites that you can enter everything you eat and it keeps up with it daily..
