Spring Into Summer Feeling Energized!

There is no time like RIGHT NOW to restore your health, boost your energy levels and get ready for the rest of SUMMER!

Pioneering celebrity physician Dr. Frank Lipman, author of SPENT: End Exhaustion and Feel Great Again, wants to teach you the same lifestyle changes and exercises he recommends to Gwyneth Paltrow, Donna Karan and Kyra Sedgwick.

You will restore your natural rhythms, learn how to listen to your body and kick that SPENT feeling once and for all! Dr. Lipman recommends modifications built on core elements that will spark vitality and help you rebuild, revive and re-energize:

· Drink an avocado smoothie for an energy boost They’re easy on your digestive system and, loaded with good fats and phytonutrients, an efficient way to stay energized all day long.

· Instead of a pricey massage, use simple tennis balls for the ultimate foot massage One major complaint of being Spent is an achy body, full of tension and pain. Release the tension with a simple exercise that can be done anytime, anywhere.

· Instead of hiring a personal trainer, begin a restorative exercise program We know that being too sedentary is unhealthy—but being TOO active can be exhausting and harmful too. Avoid never-ending cardio sessions and practice restorative exercise, which resembles interval training.

· Laugh In addition to providing perspective, laughter helps you breathe deeply, use your core muscles, massage your inner organs, boosts your immune system and releases endorphins.

· Find a way to benefit from the healing powers of the sun The sun triggers our metabolism, alertness and overall ability to function and perform—and to produce the key nutrient vitamin D.

Drawing from Western and alternative medicine, SPENT is divided into forty-two “Daily Beats” designed to gradually remove factors that lead to energy depletion and add elements that help the body heal more quickly and feel better fast. The result is a whole-life makeover that will keep put you back in sync!

* Start the day with a protein rich smoothie with good fats and phytonutrients

* Replace punishing workouts with moderate exercise on the go, and realign your body with soothing, restorative yoga poses and a “spinal reset” to ease back discomfort

* Conquer restless nights and groggy mornings by restoring a sleep rhythm aligned with the sun and nature

* Relax by taking a bath with Epsom salts, the magnesium sulfate reduces inflammation and restores balance

* Ease the tension in your neck and shoulders by using tennis balls for exercises and stretches that release tension, body aches and pains

* Create an electronic sundown; turn off your TV, cell phone and computer by 10:00 p.m.

* Prepare fast, nutrient-rich meals and snacks while eliminating the sugar and processed foods

* Go outside and benefit from the healing powers of the sun to trigger metabolism, alertness and overall ability to function
