Here's what I've been doing for Body, Mind, and Spirit


In my newsletter, Four Tips to Boost Your Immunity, one of the tips I discussed was rebounding.

I've been incorporating this more and more during the week. Not familiar with "rebounding"? Rebounding is using a scientifically designed "mini-trampoline" to literally exercise every cell in your entire body.

As the title of my newsletter indicates, it helps to boost your immunity and has other health benefits:

  • Rebounding provides a gravitational load which strengthens your entire musculoskeletal system

  • Rebounding circulates more blood and oxygen to your tissues

  • It trains your cells to work more efficiently

  • Enhances the function of your lymphatic system (flushes out toxins from your body)

  • Great for charging up your metabolism

You can start with just a few minutes a day and then increase it each week. It's a great way to take a break away from the computer!


On my quest for longevity and increasing health span, I'm always looking for ways to maintain and improve cognitive function. Pretty important, right? There are some basic things we can do to help do this - ensuring that my water intake and magnesium levels are topped off.

Health expert, Shawn Stevenson, and author of the book Eat Smarter, gives us the research and information behind hydration and the nutrient magnesium. Take it away Shawn!

The brain is made up of 80% water, the most water dominant organ in the body next to the lungs. A study published in Medicine in Science and Sports and Exercise found that just a 2% drop in our body's baseline hydration level led to significant cognitive impairment, including a reduction in the ability to have basic motor performance.

What about magnesium, Shawn?

There was a double blind placebo controlled study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. It found that improving magnesium levels (one of our most powerful electrolytes) in adult test subjects between the ages of 50 and 70, who had noted cognitive decline, were found to reverse their brain aging by upwards of nine years.

Shawn explains all this and more in his book, Eat Smarter: Use the Power of Food to Reboot Your Metabolism, Upgrade Your Brain and Transform Your Life.


Stillness is key for connecting with one's spirit. I've noticed one thing that happens when I am still and just listen, I become very grateful and aware of something much bigger than myself.

With the many recent thunderstorms in our area, I've taken advantage of this stillness after the storms by standing barefoot in the grass. Essentially this is "grounding" - exposing your body to the natural magnetic frequencies produced by the earth and is intensified after a thunderstorm. Not only does this have a great impact for the body but it profoundly connects me to the greater entity that has created everything.

Question ...?

I read a question posed by author James Clear and thought it curious. He asks, which of my relationships are win-win? Which of my relationships are one-sided? I will add that relationships can be similar to foods; some are nourishing and help us grow while others are toxic and deplete us. Something to ponder...

One more thing...!

My website, just got a very helpful search button. You can search very easily any of my newsletters on intermittent fasting, fat loss, exercise, mindfulness, and much more. Enjoy!

To our reflection,

Lisa Schaffer
