Exercise May Slow The Spread Of Grey Hair — Per BBC Report Christmas Day.

by Anura Guruge

Heard it last night, on the 11pm BBC World News, during my postprandial walk.

45-minutes of exercise, 3-times a week has shown to SLOW down the spread of grey hair.


Why. Within the last month my 14-year old had commented that THE AMOUNT of grey hair I have has not changed much in 5-years. That it has been the same as long as she can remember. I told her that it must be my genes.

But, appears NOT to be the case. They now reckon that genetics only play a 30% role in grey hair.

Well, I exercise, WITHOUT FAIL, 150-minutes a DAY, 7 days a week. That is over 7x (7 times) the recommended level.

Could that be it?

Made From Scratch (i.e., Clay), Dried & Hand Painted Toadstools By Teischan (14).

by Anura Guruge

Yes, another Christmas present. This one for her sister.

One of many of her artistic gifts this year — which included my painting & the hand painted sneakers (which you can see above).

This was her FIRST foray with clay. I had no idea she was working with clay. This blew me away. She could easily sell these. They are so cute. But, she refuses to sell. Money does not motivate her!

How Many Miles Did YOU Walk On Christmas Day To Justify Your Indulgence?

by Anura Guruge

I walked just under 6-miles as you can see from my Garmin read-out above.

It was raining. Not hard. But, persistent. I wore TWO rain jackets, one of top of the other to keep me dry. It worked.

It was WARM. Warmest Christmas I can remember — in 35-years in New Hampshire. In the 50s F. Definitely ‘F’. SMILE. 50s. Snow was melting like crazy.

I only managed to walk 12,000 steps on Christmas Eve since I had to go pick up a car, in Vermont, with my daughter. So, I needed to compensate.

Plus, I knew I would be cooking a 8lbs ham — & that I would eat a 1/4 of that myself. SMILE.

So, it worked out. I think I expended just about enough calories for all that I consumed later in the evening.
