Boost energy, relax and be happy

I follow 11 of the 12 items listed on this poster from Dave Sommers. Eleven items are part of my lifestyle program for a healthy life. (Only Epson Salt is not part of my lifestyle.)

Green smoothie full of green leaves boosts energy, walnuts and almonds feed the brain, water reduces stress, while oats and peppers ease depression.

Eye test : October 2016

This time I was certain I would see further improvement in my eyes. But no, the result was not much different than what it was three years and five years ago. Very disappointed.

On the positive side it was still not getting worse. So reason enough to continue with diet and eye exercises and I will see what happens in  2017.

Have a long, happy and healthy life.
