Let Me Introduce Myself

Boomer Wisdom With Power

Greetings from a "boomer" health enthusiast--

Hi, I'm Ellen Mitchell, a "baby boomer" with high expectations for maintaining great health, vitality and longevity. Having had to work full-time all my life, I've tried to stay healthy so as to not need to miss work or go to work feeling under the weather.

Ever since I was a little tyke, I have suffered from colds, ear infections and sinus infections. Having a desire to avoid these ailments, I have become "in-tune" to my body's reaction to specific foods, emotional stress and lack of sleep.

In the last 15 years, I have learned ways in which to strengthen my immune system and I am able to stay clear of the recurring infections of my earlier years. I have more energy and none of the stiffness in my joints that I had experienced 10 years ago. Recently, I have been studying and experiencing the healthy effects of a positive attitude, the law of attraction, meditation and using the power of love. I am so excited about the changes I've made in my whole outlook on life and anxious to share my boomer wisdom in my Squidoo lenses.

My Power Comes From Within

The light within me from my creator is illuminated by

** Love** and **Gratitude**

and brings to me the vibrant life of health and vitality.

Blood Type and Diet: A * AB * B * O

Very Fasinating Research

4 Blood Types -- 4 Diets: This is a very interesting concept I've been studying. After evaluating the health issues I've experienced throughout my entire life, there is something that rings true about this theory. More about this theory in my Lens called Diet and Blood Types.

I Was Raised On Milk With Every Meal

I love milk but it doesn't love me.

Could this actually be an answer to my suffering with sinus problems all these years? Well, I must definitely give an affirmative answer! As I have learned to use soy and almond products as alternatives to milk products, I have not been afflicted with the recurring bacterial attacks on my sinuses.

Of course, there are other factors that play into the picture of staying clear of sinus infections. Physical exercise, limiting refined sugar, managing stress, getting enough rest, and having a positive attitude are key elements in my health and vitality.

More lenses coming on these subjects.

Daily Walks

I mix it up at different locations

Walking is my choice of exercise. Whether the river path, the outdoor track at the park, or foot path around the hospital, or just around my neighborhood, I like being outdoors. In the winter I walk at the Mall before the shops open. Twenty to 45 minutes is about what I allow for myself. It's easy, it's free and I have quiet time to think.

One Of My Favorite Quotes

Okay...I admit I'm a "trekkie"

"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived."

-- Captain Jean Luc Picard

(Star Trek--Generations Movie)

My Advice To The World

Enjoy the journey. Take time to laugh and play every day.

Children's Book I Love - My Recommendation

I had the opportunity to read lots of children's books in college as an Elementary Teaching major. . The book I have selected to feature here is a Caldecott winner which I used in my first grade class. My children got a hoot out of it and it was my favorite to share as a "read aloud" every year.

Sylvester and the Magic Pebble
Sylvester and the Magic Pebble

Careful what you wish for. This story catches powerful feelings of longing and sadness, surprise and joy. My 1st graders were captivated throughout the "roller coaster" ride of feelings followed by a burst of laughter with the funny ending.

      I see we are interested in many of the same things. I am focused on healthy living in all of its iterations. Walking, eating right, getting enough rest, listening to my body and spirit, being close to nature's beauty, loving on my three girls (adopted cats). I will be watching for you on RedGage (TheGoodLife). :-)

      Hi Ellen!

      It's great to meet you! Actually, you have given me an idea - I could also make a lens to introduce myself. Like you, I have lots of interests - and we have quite a bit in common.

      I love (and dearly miss having) kitties... Our last little Kitty died a couple of years ago and I haven't gotten over it yet. :( I also enjoy gardening, cooking, walking, and music... all sorts of stuff!

      I think your lens did a lovely job of introducing you. I think we should ALL do this!

      Ok. I'm officially inspired.

      Later 'gator!

      :) Kath
