Can having regrets kill you? Tagged with:

Most people have something that they regret in life. But new study found that if you can’t shake your regrets, then it could cause long-term health problems.

On the other hand, dealing with regrets positively can make you emotionally and physically healthier.

Many of you are probably familiar with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign which is an initiative to end obesity by targeting the way we and our children think about nutrition and physical activity. Through Let’s Move, people in a variety of influential roles (parents, local officials, mayors, healthcare providers, and others) are urged to be leaders for healthy and active lifestyles. The campaign includes one goal of inspiring at least one million Americans to be active for 5 days/week for at least 6 out of 8 weeks.

As I walked down the isle of Target today, I noticed the ridiculous number of special treat items that seem to magically appear only during this time of the year.  The yard of red licorice (which I bought for a family member) was by far the healthiest option in comparison to it’s neighbors; the super size Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup (almost 1140 calories per cup) and the Peeps milk chocolate trees, which just sound disgusting.

About this time of year we enter the festival of foods and family: Thanksgiving.

And Thanksgiving Day is just the beginning of the party season with its abundance of cookies, candy, pie, cakes and other delights of the season.  It brings us joy to share delicious foods and special drinks with our family and friends. Delicious at the time! But we are so sorry afterwards.
