Did You Know?

Green Inspires Creativity: Viewing the color green helped study participants give more creative answers on creativity tests than those who viewed white, blue, red, or gray. To inspire your creativity, use green paper or a green pen, put a green plant on your desk, or paint a wall green. (Research study - University of Munich, Germany)


Chewing Gum May Improve Your Mood: People who chewed gum for at least five minutes twice a day for two weeks showed improved levels of anxiety, mood, and fatigue. Their scores on tests of depression and mental fatigue were 47% better than the control group. Theory: chewing may increase blood flow to the brain and lower levels of stress hormones. (Chifumi Sato, MD, Department of Analytical Health Science, Tokyo Medical and Dental University)


Eating Foods that Fight Inflammation: Inflammation is linked to heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. The following foods may reduce inflammation in the body: Cabbage - sulforaphane in this cruciferous vegetable wards off inflammation related diseases. Artichokes - the antioxidants in this cactus reduces cholesterol, boosts immunity, and prevents premature aging. Tart cherries - anthocyanins and quercetin in tart cherries are natural inflammation fighters. Pistachios - lutein, resveratrol, and other antioxidants fight free radical damage, and they have more cholesterol-lowering plant sterols than other tree nuts. Onions - sulfur compounds and quercetin in onions prevent inflammation and reduce blood pressure and cancer risk. Aim for at least one serving of one of these foods daily. (Jackie Newgent, RD, CDN, Culinary and Nutrition Communications Consultant, New York)

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone, 

“We become what we think about the most.” 

This quote has been credited to many people, from Aristotle to Marianne Williamson. It doesn’t matter who said it, but it’s true. The things we think about become the themes, the focus, and the center of our lives, and we control the things we think about every day. 

Focusing on thoughts that enrich our lives makes us happy. The things we think about the most will surely influence the direction our lives. Choose wisely!!! 

The quality of your vision drives the quality of your living. Train your mind to see the beauty in everything. The happiness of your life depends on the effectiveness of your perspective—it takes no more effort to dream big dreams than to dream small ones. Therefore, dream BIG!!! 

Practice feelings of joy. Relax, smile, dance, and bask in the beauty of nature. Focus on being in the present with oneness. 

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” 

~Thomas Edison 

To Your Success, Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
