How Much Rest is Too Much?

Can too much resting be too hard on the body? The answer is yes. 
The speed at which our cells die differs from person to person but rest can surely contribute.
Outside factors can have detrimental effects on our health and even our lifespan! Smoking, consuming alcoholic beverages, and even having high stress levels for long periods of time can contribute to cellular aging. It has been found that older men and women who are sedentary for more than ten hours a day causes telomere shortening. In studies, adding in exercise with an otherwise sedentary lifestyle shows the individuals were not affected with the telomeres shortening. “…low physical activity seemed to account for an 8 year biological age gap between those who exercised and those who did not (Medical News Today, 2017). I find this fascinating and also completely see how a sedentary lifestyle would make this occur. I do not believe our bodies are meant to be immobile for extended periods of time and greatly encourage everyone to get outdoors, be active, and exercise!

  1. Appreciation is the key to doing more that is why I have took some time out to thank some one who cured me of my 2 years HEPATITIS B problem. It became a major problem to me as it was affecting my marital life and I was no longer comfortable so I decided to look for a solution and I came across a post of Dr Ariba and how he has been helping people of the same problem I contacted him and told him all I have been facing in my life. He told me how to get his product and how to take it after every thing I find out that all was now okay with me and that my HEPATITIS B problem was gone that is why I have come out today to say thank you to him . if you need cure for HIV/AIDS, Herpes, cancer or diabetes of all types you can contact his email OR
