Tips to Help You Enjoy the Transition to Fall!

Tips To Help You Enjoy the Transition to Autumn

A new season is here and along with that inevitably comes change: a change in light, a change in weather, a change in lifestyle. Depending on where you live it can either be drastic or just a little blip; either way there are things you can do to make the transition easier. Here are some great tips to make any seasonal transition better!

Bring the Outdoors In: One of the things we tend to love about summer is all of the outdoor nature time. Well, just because you are going to be staying in more doesn’t mean you have to shut the outdoors out. Start bringing in bright, cheery flower bouquets and new hearty plants. Look for indoor plants that work double duty, like English Ivy; they are not only beautiful and can make you happy but clean the air as well.

Purify the Air: Since I just mentioned cleaning the air with house plants let’s take it a step farther. With windows shutting out the cold air, less circulation, and furniture off-gassing you’re going to want to keep the air clean with a Hepa Air Purifier.

Fall Cleaning: Spring shouldn’t be the only season when your home gets a fresh new face. Before you go into cuddle-up-on-the-couch nesting mode, clean up all the nooks and crannies so you can hunker down in a squeaky clean space.

Get Cooking: Stews, soups, and pies are the smell of fall. If you love to cook this is surely something to look forward to. Stock up your pantry with new, fresh ingredients so you are ready on a whim to whip up your favorite fall recipes.

Brighten Up: Since you will be spending more time indoors this would be a good opportunity to add some bright and lively colors to your place. Get some new throw pillows, blankets, or accessories that will keep your home happy and energizing. If you are really daring, try painting an accent wall for the new season.

Bring Out The Faves: What are your favorite things about fall? Is it a great sweater, the best boots, a warm down comforter, a magnificent tea? Well, start to place them in your line of sight so you can get excited about their appearance back in your life in the not-too-distant future.

Get Moving: Don’t let the natural slow down slow you down. Make sure you still move your body. If you will need to move your routine inside, you should start preparing for that now. Not only will it keep you in shape, but it will help your brain stay happy and positive through the coming months.

Be Social: It’s easy to just get lost in your own world once it gets chilly and holiday seasons begin but don’t let it. Make dates now for gatherings, dinner parties and holiday cheer so you are all scheduled and ready to go.

Grace Pointe Living Lifestyle Update

Did you get time to drop by Grace Pointe Living This Week?
Grace Pointe Living

Moving to Grace Pointe Living is easy and we have the staff and resources to make your move a breeze.

One of the most important issues that Active Adults consider when moving to any new community environment is how well the community can accommodate their lifestyle needs. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how thorough and complete the amenities and resources are at Grace Pointe Living!

Grace Pointe Living was designed and built by the desire and talent of Ron Walters, an exceptional construction and new home builder innovator, in order to provide Oklahoma Seniors with an option to have a superlative ‘Golden Years’ experience in their retirement years. The staff and the community at Grace Pointe Living understand the need to have real substantive senior active adult housing and community.

Seniors have made it clear that they are apprehensive with ‘apartment’ style senior living. They desire to have the privacy and ‘home feel’ of a stand alone home, and not be in a cloistered apartment style facility.

You’ll find staff and neighbors who care for each other while still giving the residents the privacy and control of having a home, not a apartment. You’ll find community activities and fellowship, healthy lifestyle initiatives such as free massage services, yoga, exercise, diet, fun happy hours and music concerts.

Oklahoma Seniors | Senior Health and Diet Advice

Looking for a concise list of foods to eat that will help your Senior health cardiovascular fitness?

Oklahoma senior health! Oklahoma Seniors need to keep close watch over their daily diet, exercise and physical health. So what’s the best diet items to include in your weekly shopping trips to replenish your grocery stocks?

 “Food – Exercise – Great Fellowship – All the Best Parts of being at Grace Pointe Living!”

Blood vessels have the unique role to carry oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Healthy blood vessels are elastic, flexible, strong, and clean.

Clogged blood vessels are stiff, narrowed, and filled with fat, cholesterol, and other substances. Have you ever heard of atherosclerosis? It’s a condition in which arteries are clogged, and fail to carry their vital function.

Arteries don’t clog overnight. Your lifestyle habits have a huge impact on your cardiovascular system. The good news is that you can prevent the clogging process, and nature will give you a hand in this one.

Certain foods can actually clean your blood vessels, and improve your circulation.

We give you some of them:

Broccoli

Vitamin K in broccoli prevents calcification. Broccoli contains many nutrients that prevent oxidation and severe heart problems. Fiber will help you manage stress, normalize your blood pressure, and prevent tears/plaque buildups in your arteries.

Green tea

Green tea is rich in nutrients and catechins. These antioxidants prevent the absorption of cholesterol during digestion. Drink 2-3 cups of green tea to balance your lipid levels and prevent clogging.

Green tea, especially Matcha green tea, stimulates metabolism and enhances weight management.

Flaxseeds

Alpha-linoleic acid in flaxseeds regulates blood pressure, reduces inflammation and cleans arteries.

Spinach

Nitric oxide in spinach prevents contraction of arteries, blood coagulation, and plaque buildups. It will keep you safe from stroke and heart attack.

According to a study published in the Clinical Nutrition Research, when used as an inorganic nitrate source for 7 days, spinach reduces postprandial arterial stiffness.

Spinach is rich in vitamins A and C. it prevents the damage caused by bad cholesterol, and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis. Potassium and folic acid in spinach regulate cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Eat at least half a cup of spinach every day. You can add it to your green smoothie, fresh salads, soups, or homemade juices.

Pomegranates

Antioxidants in pomegranates prevent free radical damage, and prevent the accumulation of fat in arteries. This will help you reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Nutrients in pomegranate improve blood flow and dilate arteries, which helps in preventing plaque buildups and blood clots.

According to a 2014 study published in Clinical Nutrition, pomegranate juice lowers blood pressure, reduces carotid intima-media thickness, and prevents the oxidation of LDL. Scientists studied the effect of pomegranate juice in patients with carotid artery stenosis.

A similar 2013 study published in Atherosclerosis confirmed that pomegranate extract creates atheroprotective effect that lowers oxidative stress and inflammation in blood vessels.

Eat 1-2 pomegranates every day, and have a glass of fresh pomegranate juice.

Cranberries

Antioxidants in cranberries improve heart health and balance cholesterol levels. Cranberry juice has more antioxidants than other fruit juices, except for the 100% red or black grape juice.

Always drink 100% pure organic cranberry juice to improve the condition of your heart and prevent heart disease.

Avocados

Healthy fats in avocados reduce LDL cholesterols while raising HDL levels. HDL, or good cholesterol, prevents clogging.

According to a 1996 study published in the Archives of Medical Research, monounsaturated fatty acids improve lipid profiles. This was confirmed in both healthy individuals and hypercholesterolemic patients.

Vitamin E prevents oxidation. Avocados are also rich in folate which lowers homocysteine levels. Potassium regulates blood pressure.

Eat at least half an avocado every day. Use it instead of your butter and cream.

Asparagus

Asparagus prevents clogging and regulates blood pressure. It’s rich in vitamin B complex, and reduces homocysteine levels.

A 2005 study confirmed that homocysteine increases the risk of CAD and blood clotting. Asparagus is rich in folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12, which makes it an excellent choice for those who deal with high homocysteine levels.

Asparagus stimulates the production of glutathione, an antioxidant that prevents inflammation and oxidation. Vitamin K prevents artery hardening and cleans arteries. Eat asparagus regularly to get the most of its benefits.

Turmeric

Curcumin is the active ingredient in compound. It’s an excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent. Curcumin optimizes the function of the cardiovascular system, and prevents clogging.

Curcumin has shown to lower bad cholesterol levels. According to a 2015 study publishes in the International Journal of Clinical & Experimental Pathology, turmeric boosts heart health and prevents clogging.

The active compound improves the permeability of coronary arteries due to its anti-inflammatory effect.

Add a teaspoon of turmeric to a glass of milk, and drink it twice a day. Curcumin supplements work great, too. Take 400-600mg of curcumin, three times a day.

Apples

Pectin in apples affects the absorption of bile acids in the intestines, and thus lowers bad cholesterol levels. The liver is forced to use the circulating cholesterol in order to produce more bile. Flavonoids in apples reduce the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments.

Magnesium and potassium in apples regulate blood pressure. Eat an apple a day to keep the doctor away. Remember this one?

Garlic

Garlic is definitely the food you need to eat every day. It does wonders when it comes to preventing clogged arteries and cardiovascular problems. Regular consumption of garlic lowers bad cholesterol levels, and optimizes blood flow.

A 2016 study found that garlic extract reduces coronary plaque volume in cases of metabolic syndrome. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Nutrition.

Eat 1-2 garlic cloves every morning. If you can stand its taste, “hide” a couple of garlic cloves in your stews, soups, salad dressings, and pretty much everything you eat.

Chia seeds

Chia seeds were commonly used in Mayan and Aztec cuisine. The tiny seeds are abundant in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Believe it or not, these seeds can lower your bad cholesterol levels and regulate your blood pressure.

Add chia seeds to your oatmeal, yoghurt, salads or other crunchy dishes. Soak a tablespoon of chia seeds in water for half an hour, and you should get a gel-like mixture. Add it to your smoothies, desserts, and baked goods.

Drink plenty of water, because chia seeds will absorb every drop you take.
