Eating well with healthy choices is important?
Jane Fonda Exercise
The immune system is ready to defeat any single threat to your body`s existence. So, you can make the wise choices to keep your body strong.
Jane Fonda has plans to combine her relatively newfound love of blogging (on janefonda.com) and social media with her longtime commitment to fitness.
Sure eating right is important, but she told the LA Times, ``Older women are the fastest-growing demographic for apps, for iPads. I was told that yesterday by someone I`m going to start working with on a much greater digital [project].``
Fonda, who is now in her seventies, has committed to getting boomers and seniors in shape. Her main concern is that people are more out of shape today than when she first started the trend of working out and staying in shape. One has to wonder if social media really gets an out-of-shape person out the door on the jogging trail or on their way to the gym.
Whatever Fonda has plans for in the social media workout scene, we are sure to hear about it when the fitness app arrives at the market.
In the meantime, you can view a clip from one of her fitness DVDs.
For some reason, today, people are staying inside more, wearing sunscreen, living in polluted cities with high buildings that block the sun. They are not getting enough sunlight and as a result, they are deficient in Vitamin D. With that, another way to boost your immune system is to get some sunlight every day. It’s good for you and fights diseases.
You get vitamin D from the sun. It makes people happier, too. You can get moody or depressed if you lack Vitamin D. Studies proved that people who felt depressed or moody took vitamin D and felt better.
Otherwise, being deficient in vitamin D causes long range effects on preventing your body from being healthy. You are more likely to come down with the flu or develop heart disease and other series health issues.
So, get out in the sun more. Soak in the rays. Besides, the fresh air will do you good, too.
