Hidden Benefits of Excercise

Besides making you look better in a bathing suit, the health benefits of working out are legendary. Exercise builds muscles, strengthens bones and improves heart health. But did you know it could protect your vision, boost your word power and slash sick days? From Prevention. com, here are some of the lesser-known perks of exercise:
Healthier mouth. A study found that adults who moderately exercised for 30 minutes five times a week were 42 percent less likely to have periodontitis, a gum disease.
Sharper vision. A physically active lifestyle can cut the risk of age-related macular degeneration by 70 percent, according to a British Journal of Ophthalmology study.
Bigger vocabulary. Researchers at the University of Muenster in Germany found that people who ran two three-minute sprints, with a two-minute break in between, leamed new words 20 percent faster than study participants who didn’t exercise.
Fewer colds. A University of Washington study found that women who did 45 minutes of cardiovascular exercise five days a week had 33 percent fewer colds than the control group, who did stretching exercises once a week.
Better attendance. Research finds that people who participate in strenuous leisure activities, such as running or cycling, take about half as many sick days as their sedentary cohorts.

Super Food: Basil

Basil thrives in warm weather, so July is the ideal time to grow it in a pot or buy it at the produce stand. Basil’s deep green color and fresh, herbaceous flavor make it a perfect match for tomatoes, another summer favorite. The flavonoids in basil have antibacterial properties and have been shown to protect cells from damage by free radicals. Eugenol, an oil in basil, is an anti-inflammatory agent. Enjoy fresh basil in sandwiches and salads, or grind it up with garlic, pine nuts and olive oil to make a classic pesto.

‘The People’s Princes’

Diana, Princess of Wales, would have been50 years old on July 1. Diana’s untimely death at the age of 36 in a 1997 car crash sent the world into mourning, but the bright spirit of ‘the people’s princess‘ lives on. Here are some facts about Diana:
Royal courtship. Prince Charles had known Diana for several years and had briefly dated her older sister Sarah. But Charles never considered Dna as a potential bride until one summer weekend in 1980, when the future princess watched the prince play polo. In the winter 0f1981, Diana accepted Charles‘ proposal of marriage.
Worldwide wedding‘ On July 29, 1981, 20-yearold Diana wed 32-year old Charles, with 3,500 guests in attendance, at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Two million spectators lined the route of Diana’s procession to the church, and 750 milion more people around the world watched the ceremony on TV.
Little princes The union of Diana and Cluarles produced two sons, Prince Wiliam in 1982 and Prince Harry it 1984. Despite their diiferences, the royal couple reportedly made a good parenting team and shared responsibility for the boys after divorcing in 1996.
Lasting legacy. Her openness may have roiled the royals, but Diana modemized the monarchy. She campaigned against the use of land mines, raised awareness of eating disorders and held the hands of AIDS patients, confronting the prejudices of the time.

“Anywhere I see suffering,
that is where I want to be,
doing what I can.”
—Diana, Princess of Wales

Buy Local, Eat Green

Summer is the perfect season for home-grown fruits and vegetables. Farmers’ markets abound, as do locally grown sections in chain supermarkets. Eating seasonal produce grown close to home saves the high costs of transportation, and products get to your table faster, meaning they’re fresher and more flavorful.

Feel-good Fitness

Don’t feel like working out? Do it anyway. Exercise releases endorphins—brain chemicals that help create a euphoric state. You’ll feel better physically and mentally.

Nightstand Notepad

Ever found yourself tossing and turning at night, fretting about something important you must do? Keep a notepad and pen on your nightstand so you can record any late-night ruminations, roll over and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

Lemon-Fresh Microwave

To clean and deodorize your microwave, cut a lemon into quarters and place the pieces in a small bowl with a cup of water. Boil for five minutes. The lemon will combat odor and the steam will loosen any grime, making cleanup easy.
