Challenge Myself: Day #139 Drink Your Juice

Today is Day #139 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today when stressed we need antioxidants. It's as simple as drinking a glass of juice!

The book says,

Can you say antioxidants?

During a crisis, your body responds by releasing turbo-charging stress hormones that flood your cardiovascular system to prepare you to deal with the emergency. But stress hormones flooding the system can also cause damage.

Antioxidants, substances found in certain fruits and vegetables, act as scavengers of free radicals (by-products created when cells use oxygen) and can both prevent and repair free radical damage.

Squeeze or use a juicer to extract the juice from organic vegetables and fruits such as oranges, limes, strawberries, carrots, apricots, peaches, cantaloupes and green leafy vegetables. Pomegranate, purple grapes and cranberries are high in phytochemicals and are good antioxidant agents as well.
Drinking fresh, organic juice is especially good for when you are under duress.

Just For Today: No one will take care of me, but me. I will start today healthier.
