We have just decided to become part of the networking revolution on Twitter and Facebook. I am learning how to be punchy and concise to be able to deliver something memorable in just 140 characters. It is quite a challenge when I have always had free reign to write as many words as I felt for my hundreds of articles to date. On Facebook we will be offering a daily wellness tip on a wall entitled “Ten Second Health Tips” and that concept will be replicated on Twitter. The name relates to the fact that it takes just ten seconds to absorb this valuable information each day.
I will endeavor to deliver something practical and worthwhile with each of these tips and, as is my way, you can be assured that every suggestion is based upon research and hard science. There may be a few exceptions when I stray into the less scientific arena of mind/ body medicine and universal laws but I am sure that even the most hard nosed cynic will still find something of value in the esoteric postings. Here is an example of ten of the tweets that are now available on Facebook and will expand by the week.
