We’ve talked a lot about #food and #mindfulness in this blog. And how it’s so important to #healing. I wanted to share an anecdote about how #gardens have played an important role in how I try to practice good health in my own life. http://heathertickmd.com/the-love-of-gardening/

Most of us have #hyperactive #minds. Regardless of what we’re doing – eating, driving, or brushing our teeth – our minds are elsewhere.

It’s a fact. The #Holidays roll in and we give ourselves the mental break from #healthy choices so we can indulge guilt free.

Why do some people think that all the #superfoods we’re supposed to eat are so expensive? They don’t have to be. The media tells us every six months that there is a new mystical fruit or oil that we have to consume in order to live long. Let’s not fall for that marketing spin. They may be wonderful foods to try but as you will see below, some of the #healthiest #foods are very economical. http://heathertickmd.com/top-10-favorite-superfoods-drool-worthy-recipes/

We #sit a lot. We drive to work, sit at our desks, and watch TV after dinner. Most of us spend more than half of our day #sitting and this sitting is making us sick. http://heathertickmd.com/no-amount-of-exercise-will-undo-the-harm-of-sitting-all-day/
