DID YOU KNOW that eggs can be a good food source for vitamin D? A study from The Journal of Nutrition found that consuming seven commercially available eggs per week for 12 weeks was effective for attenuating the wintertime decline in circulating vitamin D concentrations in young Australian adults? I thought this was particularly interesting because you would not think of Australia as a country with vitamin D insufficiency because of the year-round sunshine. However, for those who do not get at least 15 minutes of sun daily without sunscreen, do not get enough from diet and supplements, and have genetic mutation(s), it is easy to become vitamin D deficient. Eggs, as long as they are organic and omega-3 infused whenever possible, can be a very helpful dietary staple to keep vitamin D levels strong.

More Optimism, Longer Life?
Steve: According to a study in Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, more optimism leads to a longer life.
While it seems everything we see and hear these days leans towards despair, it does not have to be that way.
Researchers examined 159,255 participants in the Women's Health Initiative, who were followed for up to 26 years. Of the participants, the 25% who were the most optimistic were likely to have a 5.4% longer lifespan and a 10% greater likelihood of living beyond 90 years than the 25% who were the least optimistic.
Optimism can be found in any situation, no matter how dire. Just as my wellness philosophy is healing from the inside out, I see optimism similarly. To be more optimistic, simplify life and start from the inside out. Try adhere to the following no matter how long it takes...
Take care of yourself because it is hard to help others until you do.
Help take care of family (if applicable).
Help take care of friends and coworkers.
Help take care of your community.
If you've accomplished all of the above, help take care of those in your state, country, and the world.
