1. These new developments in the aid of hearing – a.) a new device that will be powered by our phones called “Earlens”
“Earlens” uses a laserlike light signals to stimulate the eardrum directly and offers broad frequency fr those who haven’t had success with traditional hearing aids.
b.) Treatments to prevent “hidden Hear loss” a newly discovered condition in which people can pass a hearing test but don’t hear well in noisy environments.
c.) In five to ten years from now they are getting much closer to regenerating hearing with gene therapy. Using a harmless virus, they can deliver a gene to the inner ear in mice and guinea pigs and stimulate the hair cells to regrow and regenerate hearing. They are also testing the delivery of nerve growth factors to reconnect the inner ear cells to the synapse, which could reverse hearing loss

2. That the Human body is 70% – 75% water. Some studies show 70% of pre school children drink no water at all during the day.  Some have a diminished thirst mechanism and mistake it for hunger, feeding their thirst with food.

3. Reasearch shows that the more grateful you are, the less anxious you tend to be.

Make a conscious effort to intentionally focus on things you are grateful or by writing them down – and the more specific you can be the better.
A pressure point for easing anxiety is Pericardium 6 – which is in the middle of the inside forearm, two and a half fingers with away from the wrist. Gently press and knead the area for two minutes, take some nice deep breaths and feel a sense of calm wash over you.

5. Your body is younger than you. No matter how old you are most of your body is less than 10 years old, because your cells are always recycling themselves. The epidermis recycles every 2-4 weeks, red blood cells are replaced every 4 months and your skeleton turns over every 10 years

Too Much Sitting? – A Deadly Mistake

Too much sitting doesn’t just put you at risk for bulging disc and tension headaches — it’s now considered as dangerous as smoking. You maybe able to avoid health problems because of too much sitting by exercising one hour a day.
Researchers found that at least an hour of moderate-level physical activity a day (things like cycling at about 10 mph or brisk walking) could cancel out the increased risk of death associated with a sedentary lifestyle.
Too much sitting is now linked to a host of diseases, including diabetes, certain cancers and heart disease. And get this: They now know about 300,000 cases of dementia could be prevented each year if everyone lived physically active lives.

I agree as I have seen my Mothers health deteriorate in a year, after she stopped going for walks each day. My Mother now sadly suffers from Dementure. Which trust me is very hard to watch.
Study suggests the World Health Organization’s guidelines of 150 minutes of physical activity per week is simply not enough for office workers or others who are chronic sitters.
