Taking a Bite Out of Tooth Sensitivity

Our teeth get more sensitive to things like hot and cold foods as we age. That’s because, like it or not, your gums will recede as you grow older.

Here are some tips to combat that:

  • Use a “Sensitive Toothpaste”
  • Avoid Acidic Food – Like orange juice and tomatoes
  • Don’t Brush So Hard!
  • Avid “Whitening Toothpastes – They can be very abrasive

The Importance of a Good Night's Sleep

The idea that we need less sleep as we grow older is false. Research shows 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night helps keep our brains sharp. Lack of good sleep on a consistent basis can lead to depression on even dementia!

Here are some tips to help you make it through the night:

Avoid Long Naps – If you must nap during the day, try to keep it under 30 minutes

Socks – Yes, wearing socks to keep your feet warm can actually help you sleep sounder and longer

Keep Discussion Pleasant – Try to avoid discussing topics like politics or finances that can raise your stress level in the last few hours before bedtime.

Is Your Cell Phone Hurting Your Back?

Believe it or not, your cell phone can cause back pain!

If you're on the phone for long periods of time, bending your neck to cradle to phone or read all those text messages can add up to 60 pounds of additional stress to your back!

Experts recommend two things to combat this:

1.) Invest in ear buds and wear them during long conversations. That way, you don't have hold the phone near your ear.

2.) Keep your head up and your eyes down when reading texts.

When Is the Best Time to Eat?

We’ve all heard “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!” But is it?
A statement from the American Heart Association indicates it might be. Their researchers found that we metabolize foods differently at different times of the time. They found that people who eat within two hours of waking had lower heart disease risk factor compared to those who skip breakfast.

The Association cautions that these results are not conclusive because researchers did no further study to determine if people who ate a healthy breakfast also had other health habits that contributed to their lower risk factors.

Nonetheless, the report offered these general guidelines to lower your chances for heart disease and type-2 diabetes:

  1. Stick to a meal routine. Don’t eat whenever or change you schedule from day to day/
  2. Schedule your snacking. Just as with meals, planning and timing your snacks can help keep you from indulging in too much junk food.
  3. Eat less at night. It’s easier for your body to process sugar earlier in the day.
  4. Eliminate late night snacks altogether. Overnight, your metabolism is at its slowest. Throwing in more calories during this time is asking for trouble.

Your Thermostat Might Be Affecting Your Weight

No, really. Researchers have found that temperature can affect weight loss. That means keep your house set at, say 65 degrees at night may actually encourage your body to burn more fat!
