HIGH MAINTENANCE

Season 3 Episode 3: BLONDIE – Have you had a chance to taste it?
I’ve watched it a couple of times and realize we have to face it:

FOLKS LIKE TO BE ELEVATED.

I must admit before season 3 episode 2, I hadn’t ever seen it before.
Dimensionally it is a success; check its IMDB score.

What’s more is that one of the show’s co-creators is more than a scripting factor,
he’s also the principle guy in the series; double credit as writer and an actor.

That’s what up!
I love it when one variable yields multiple cuts.

GOALS.

What’s the upkeep of your journey, how goes your lifestyle?
Are you high or low maintenance? Don’t put on for us, child.

Do your thing while you’re agile,
live incognito; live out loud.

Write up an idea about the world that you see,
then compose a POC and share it with me.

I say as much because beyond the day that I graduate
my POC’s and capacity will convey and facilitate.

I am very much into this.
There are not many stages of production that I care to miss.
Not if I really intend on (tomorrow), having this.

Everything needs upkeep and everything needs maintenance,
Forego mediocre theater; don’t let circumstances play us.

Amadeus!

Take a deep breath in and exhale strongly my friend,
I’m Qui
and life is what it is; a cyclic rotation that we are in. I’m literal with the spin.

Miss me with the ash.

WHY NOT YOU? There’s no good reason why you should not be at your best life at any age. I’m currently on a journey to discover as much every day. So far, I think it’s doing a good job of playing hide-and-seek with me. Good thing I’m persistent and determined.

I too, am a checkout line magazine reader though it was my monthly home subscription to EBONY Mag that proved to be most instrumental in ELEVATE’ing my mind to the necessary level of refocusing on a healthier and happier me. Dr. Oz was instrumental in Melissa Johnsons piece on page 75 of the April 2013 publication:

Fight HEALTH Threats

Hypertension. High Cholesterol. Diabetes. These medical conditions plague our people in record numbers — in fact, they are so common, we tend to think in terms of when we’ll be diagnosed, not if. “That might lead you to believe they’re inevitable, but nothing could be further from the truth, “says Mehmet Oz, M.D., host of The Dr. Oz Show and a vice-chair and surgery professor at Columbia University.

You’re never too old or too young — to benefit from a healthy makeover, but don’t panic: You don’t have to jump into a strict diet and exercise routine to reduce your risk factors or improve an existing condition. The following lifestyle changes can help you get it together in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond.

Reduce Hypertension NOTE

20s_NO TO SALT

The major food factor for hypertension is salt, says Dr. Oz. “Where salt goes, water will follow. Think of your blood vessels as a hose: the more water in the hose, the greater the pressure.”

Replace all that salt with flavorful mixed herbs– oregano, peppers and Indian blends. Another salt-free substitute: Capsiacin [based sauces, which add a spicy kick and provide a bonus benefit: “Capsaicin reduces your appetite.” Capasaisin is found in chile peppers, the common ingredient in most hot sauces. Cut back on processed and take-out foods, opting instead for fresh food when possible.

“Ninety percent of the salt we eat comes from processed foods,” says Dr. Oz. And watch your intake of the “salty six,” common foods often loaded with extra salt: bread, cold cuts, pizza, poultry, such as chicken nuggets, soups and prepared sandwiches. Read the labels.

40s_PotassiumFight the pressure-elevating effects of sodium with this essential mineral. “Potassium and sodium compete with one another in your body,” Dr. Oz explains, “and eating foods with lots of potassium reduces the amount of sodium.” Avocados, bananas, oranges, potatoes and tomatoes are a few of the potassium powerhouses he wants to see in your grocery cart.

50s+_Meditate

the letter Meditation is a proven stress reliever, no matter how many candles are on your birthday cake. And for older adults who don’t exercise as hard as they used to, the ancient practice can help improve overall mental health, improve focus and reduce essential hypertension, a type of high blood pressure that tends to develop over time and has no underlying cause. It may sound easy, but meditating effectively takes commitment and focus. “People have a hard time letting their minds be free,” says Dr. Oz, who practices meditation himself. “For me it’s harder than running a marathon. You can daydream when you’re running, but when you meditate, you have to let your brain be quiet.”
