Not long ago I read an inspiring article about sports and movement. I’ve already hinted several times that working out isn’t something that comes naturally with me. It takes effort and most of the time I go through some resistance before I start. But the moment that I’m actually running through the park or doing my poses in yoga class, I’m enjoying it.

Oil pulling. You must have heard of it since it’s becoming widely popular as a detox method. This Ayurvedic tradition is already thousands years old. And according to the old texts it cures over 30 diseases and conditions. Well, I’m not sure about that but it is a great way to improve your oral health.

When I got cancer for the second time, I changed my lifestyle drastically. And that didn’t just happened overnight. Learning new routines, new eating habits, new ways of looking at life, it takes time and effort. You can’t just do it all at once.
