Your post is very inspiring...I'm pretty worn down right now by a lifetime of stressors, but when I am able to reduce some of my enivornmental stressors, I hope my self-discipline returns so that I can follow your approach.
About the tumeric - how to you take 1-2 tsp. a day? I bought a bag of tumeric powder from an organic retailer online (I had researched the properties of the herb and it sounds very healthful). When I make a curry, whether with chick peas, tomatoes, coconut milk, etc., I use only about 1/2 a tblsp. in the whole dish. How do you incorporate it into your daily diet? I thought of dissolving it in hot water to form a tea, but it is the orangish yellow type-and is almost like a yellow dye (doesn't it stain your teeth??). My other thought was mixing it with plain yogurt. Anyway, I'd appreciate your advice on this.
Haven't you also considered psychotherapy in your routine? I found the older you get, the more mental health issues sort of weaken your brain's coping abilities. It's an antecdotal thought, and my psychiatrist noted this as well as a result of his 30 some years of practice.
