SeKiFi

Kære venner og entusiaster. Nu er der endelig ved at ske noget igen på SeKiFi-fronten. Jeg starter nu helt sikkert op på Strøbyskolen her til August. Det bliver en gang om ugen kl. 19 til 20.30 enten mandag, tirsdag eller torsdag aften. Alle er velkomne og alle kan være med til en super alsidig styrke- og kredsløbstræning i kampsportens navn.

Benefits to Exercising While Nude

You’ve probably seen the naked yoga classes and the carefully posed Instagram posts extolling the virtues of working out naked. It turns out that nude fitness may be more than just a trend. It may have actual benefits.

Personal trainer Keith McNiven tells the New York Post that for many people working out is about getting to know your body and feel comfortable with it. Being naked basically just amps the ante on this. Another benefit is that by seeing yourself naked in the mirror, you can see all the changes that your body is going through, helping you to stay on track. You can see each muscle group working and visualize the impact of the exercise. Working out in the nude helps your skin breathe, without being hindered by sweaty spandex or even “breathable” fabrics that can cause breakouts after a sweat session. And unhindered by clothing, your body can fully move and bend, allowing you to experience a fuller range of flexibility.

Advocates of nude sweat sessions also claim that you can burn more calories without clothing and focus on problem areas more easily. If you’re on a budget, you’ll save money on workout wear. And then there’s also the theory that workout gear infringes on blood flow so that your workout will be more successful in the nude.

Although working out naked seems to be taking off in 2018, it’s actually an ancient practice that dates back to the ancient Greeks. And of course, if you’re not buying workout wear, then you don’t have any workout wear to wash — which means less laundry to do.

And of course, there’s the whole childhood wonder of feeling free and air flowing all over your body. So if you’re wondering whether or not getting buff in the buff is a good idea, you could always give it a try and find out if it works for you.

I was once invited to nude swimming a public place, where they announced a cozy night swimming in candlelights. It sounded appealing, exciting and like a good challenge, but I unfortunately I didn´t go. I didn´t dare. I regret that now and I am looking forward to the next invitation.

Brain Breaks: An Important Tool for Every Parent!

Brain Breaks: An Important Tool for Every Parent!

Brain Breaks can be just what you need to help wake up the brain and body! Information plus an book with tons of ideas to get blood pumping and improve focus!

A year and a half ago while working with my oldest on spelling dictation, he started to get restless and completely incapable of focusing on the work at hand.  In frustration, I found myself launching into a long-winded lecture. Blah, blah, blah… As my monologue progressed, I noticed that he was zoning out even more.  It was time for a change of tactics.  I paused and in my very best army sergeant voice ordered my son to stand up and give me 10 jumping jacks.  A look of surprise washed over his face.

He giggled.  I gave my best over-the-top army sergeant glare and barked the order again, fighting back giggles of my own.  He responded with a puny flailing armed set of jumping jacks.  I mustered composure, told this ‘private’ that his performance was unacceptable and ordered two laps around the kitchen island before returning to spelling duty.  He giggled again and complied.

Since then, I’ve introduced a number of fun little breaks that get pulled out at random times to wake up lethargic brains and bodies!  We call them ‘brain breaks’.    What I didn’t realize is that I had read about something similar years earlier in Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head.   This educational psychologist recommended short movement breaks as remedial exercises to help with bilateral integration in struggling students and eventually as break for the entire classroom.  As I reread the book last year, I had an aha moment.  What I was doing just to save our sanity was actually waking his brain up by activating the vestibular system, bilateral integration and giving the brain a fresh boost of oxygen!

Brain Breaks can be just what you need to help wake up the brain and body! {Great ideas to get blood pumping and improve focus! Check out the book, The Ultimate Guide to Brain Breaks that details 60 fabulous activities - perfect for homework time, homeschooling and in the classroom!}

Brain Breaks can be just what you need to help wake up the brain and body! {Great ideas to get blood pumping and improve focus! This book details 60 fabulous activities - perfect for homework time, homeschooling and in the classroom!}

So here is my little tip for the day!  When you are doing some of the necessary seat work and you see that the lights are on, but nobody’s home, declare a ‘brain break’.  A quick 2-5 minutes will work wonders to lighten the mood, get oxygen pumping and wake their brain up for diving back into the learning process!  The key here is to make it light-hearted and fun!

Breaks like these work to wire the brain to learn, focus and perform better!

Thank you Heather.

Every little change matters.

woman shopping at farmer's market produce stand

We know now through the science of epigenetics that you are not stuck with your genetic history. Your choices in diet, exercise, and other aspects of your lifestyle can help determine whether your genes promote cancer—both for you and your descendants. You can “turn on” hundreds of genes that fight cancer and “turn off” the ones that encourage cancer by simply making changes. Even small changes in your lifestyle can make a big difference in your risk for recurrence by reducing inflammation and boosting immune surveillance.

This quick hits checklist of lifestyle changes will help keep you living cancer free.

#1: Limit alcohol to one glass of red wine with food.

#2: Quit smoking.

#3: Walk or do some type of exercise 30 minutes a day, six days a week.

#4: Do daily yoga stretching.

#5: Lift weights or use exercise bands three times per week.

#6: Find a stress-management practice that works for you.

#7: Spend 10 minutes daily meditating or relaxing.

#8: Support your immune system by getting enough sleep and practicing positive thinking.

#9: Keep your weight under control and avoid obesity.

#10: Avoid meat or eat only minimal amounts of organic meat.

#11: Eat limited amounts of organic dairy products and organic poultry.

#12: Eat whole grains and avoid white flour.

#13: Avoid sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. Substitute stevia, xylitol, or small amounts of honey.

#14: Eat five to nine servings of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables daily.

#15: Eat broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, or other cruciferous vegetables three times per week.

#16: Liberally add herbs and spices to your foods, especially garlic, onions, cilantro, and turmeric.

#17: Read labels carefully and avoid chemical additives.

#18: Choose safe, organic household and personal care products.

#19: Buy organic when possible, and thoroughly wash pesticide residueoff conventionally grown fruits and vegetables.

#20: Avoid trans fats completely.

#21: Let the sun shine in. For optimum vitamin D, allow 20 minutes of sun on your bare skin, without sunscreen, at least three times per week (just be certain never to let it burn).
Get your vitamin D blood levels checked and keep them at optimum levels.

#22: Take a multivitamin (without iron) daily; take 500 milligrams of mixed omega-3 fatty acids daily, and get 250 to 300 milligrams of magnesium daily.

#23: Get in touch with your spirituality.
