Our lifestyle

Our lifestyle
Today, many children and even adults spend a lot of time being inactive and simultaneously overeating. “An average child spends about 2-3 hours a day with television, the internet, mobile phones or video games during which they often snack on fast food and gulp down a lot of sugary soft drinks, all of which can add up huge calories.”

However it is not junk food alone that is making them obese—it is the junk lifestyle we provide them.

With this kind of lifestyle……eating junk, no activity, smoking, drinking…where are we heading…..

Hey guys please give this a thought………

Change your lifestyle now or never

If you know you need to change your lifestyle, don’t plan for 30 days down the line, or even tomorrow morning. Start Now. There is no such thing as a ‘last meal’, give up on the dieting mindset – this isn’t a diet, this is a lifestyle that needs to work with your routine and schedule to be sustainable.

You know your schedule and your tastes best, and only you know what is sustainable with your busy life. If they work in your schedule, make it a habit, if it doesn’t work or it isn’t to your taste, then it won’t be sustainable for you to keep forcing yourself to do it, so lose it!

Don't let DIET or EXERCISE grown on you, accept it as a lifestyle enjoy it.....When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no "I'll start tomorrow.

Fats and Brain

Your brain is the fattest organ in the body and may consists of at least 60% fat (yep, you technically are a “fathead”).  But on a serious note, the reason I am pointing this out is because so many people don’t get enough healthy fats in their diet to support optimal brain functioning.

DHA (short for docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (short for eicosapentaenoic acid) are omega 3 fatty acids that promote thinking and memory.

Eat healthy homecooked meals

Eat healthy homecooked meals - Whether it's you who's cooking, a family member, or house help, ensure that every one practises healthy cooking methods, and ingredients.

Ask any person who's lost weight the healthy way, and you will always hear about how healthy homecooked meals were a big reason behind it.

Use less oil, low salt, fresh produce, and you'll start seeing results in no time.

Eat Dinner at least two hours before bedtime

Eat Dinner at least two hours before bedtime

It is generally advised to stop eating two hours before bedtime as our body’s metabolism dips and it is preparing for sleep(rest).

Furthermore, lying down to go to sleep after eating a late dinner or midnight snack makes it impossible for gravity to hold food and liquids in place so stomach acids can do their job.

Also lack of activity after dinner makes it difficult for the body to digest food, some researchers believe going to bed with a full stomach causes the food to turn to fat.

Regardless of which theory is correct, the bottom line is that eating before bed interferes with getting a good night's sleep.
So, however  healthy dinner you eat it does not serve its purpose.

Valentine's day special - Love and health

Love And Health

Research Examines Love’s Impact On Health.

On Valentine’s Day you need to consider this: There’s actually some real science behind those feelings of romance and affection.

Love actually can make us healthier, so much so that if you could bottle it, you would have an incredible wonder drug.

Scientists are beginning to discover that apart from food, exercise,stress, lifestyle, there is one facet of life that ranks above all in determining wellness and longevity. This facet is the level of love and connectedness that we feel.

If a growing body of research is to be believed, love can
-lengthen your life
-ward off stress
-boost your immune system
-lower your blood pressure
-protect you from colds and flu
-blunt your response to pain
-hasten wound healing and
-lower your risk of dementia in old age.

A study of nearly 1,400 people with heart disease found that those with a spouse or confidant died at approximately one-third the rate of those who had no one to confide in. Past research on love and health also presented by ABC News reported on a study showing that being with a spouse or partner is linked with a drop in blood pressure.

Well-respected author and medical doctor, Dean Ornish, makes a powerful claim for the value of love and intimacy: “I am not aware of any other factor in medicine – not diet, not smoking, not exercise, not stress, not genetics, not drugs, not surgery – that has a greater impact on our quality of life, incidence of illness, and premature death from all causes. Love and intimacy are at the root of what makes us sick and what makes us well, what causes sadness and what brings happiness, what makes us suffer, and what leads to healing.”

In summary, if you are interested in wellness and longevity, it appears fruitful to foster meaningful relationships that provide a sense of love and connectedness. As Dr. Ornish states succinctly, “Know that this really matters to your health.”

So there you have it, love is good for almost everything. The only exception: it doesn’t help you lose weight. 

Do Good To All Before Dying
Spread Smiles Instead Of Crying
Love Everyone Well In Time
To Make Every Moment Valentine

Wishing you all a very happy Valentine day…Cheers
