Happy green diwali

Lets all celebrate a pollution free Green Diwali.....and let the celebration last life long!!!

Now with the availability of so many colorful and attracting crackers in the market, it is tough to convince our children about the perils of the reckless usage of crackers,it is time for all to come together and pledge for pollution free Diwali. We might not only reduce the high environmental cost of buying and burning crackers, but also reduce the expense incurred in the treatment of asthma and other pollution related diseases.

Atleast we can teach them to reduce the use of crackers. Let’s redefine our Diwali celebration with lighting of Diyas, decoration with flowers and distributing sweets, gifts and, above all, happiness!

After all, how long can we remain ignorant while we celebrate a festival of enlightenment!

Gift a Green Diwali.

World Spine Day

World Spine Day 2017 October 16th – “Your Back In Action”

Millions of people in all continents of the world suffer with spinal disorders. These can include low back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and disc disease, to name but a few. Spinal pain and disability can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health, sometimes preventing them from working or even doing simple daily activities.

Research has demonstrated that poor posture and inactivity are major contributors to the development of back pain and other spinal disorders. According to the World Health Organization, one in four adults is not active enough and over 80% of adolescent population is not active enough.

This year, the World Spine Day (WSD) theme is “Your Back In Action”.  We want to highlight the importance of physical activity and improving posture as part of good spinal health and prevention of injury.

Global Handwashing Day

Global Handwashing Day October 15 2017. This year’s theme is ‘Our Hands, Our Future’

It helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including the common cold, staph infections and the flu.

SIMPLE WAY TO TEACH KIDS HANDWASHING

WASH HANDS FOR 20 SECONDS (SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TWICE TO TIME YOURSELF)

Combine water, soap and friction -- for as long as it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice, or at least 20 seconds and germs won't see their next birthday.

However, when soap and water are unavailable, alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be substituted.

Diwali special tips

Festive season special some healthy tips

While cooking sweets use jaggery or dates or anjir paste instead of sugar, along with calories will provide some nutrition.

Use low fat or fat free milk instead of full fat milk. These will help in reducing the calories in sweets to a certain extent.

Be careful of how much food you ‘taste’ while preparing, often while cooking we tend to eat more than normal without realising.

Enjoy Diwali in a healthy way

World arthritis day 2017

World arthritis day -October 12

In 2017, WAD is part of the ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today!’ EULAR Campaign which, for the first time, engages all three EULAR pillars – patient organisations (PARE), health professional associations and scientific communities.

Rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) often receive delayed or no diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is key to preventing further damage, but RMDs often receive delayed or no diagnosis.This is often due to a lack of awareness, reducing peoples' quality of life and affecting physical abilities.

The EULAR Campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of early diagnosis in preventing further damage to those living with RMDs, and to encourage timely access to evidence-based treatment.

A healthy eating plan can greatly reduce the painful symptoms of arthritis.

EAT HEALTHY THIS DIWALI

EAT HEALTHY THIS DIWALI

So its DIWALI time with lots of sweets and delicious dishes around you
What goes in your mind

Is it OK to eat all those sugar loaded sweets? Or should I avoid it completely!!!!!!!!!!!

Am I getting too many calories?

Will I be on the right track?

Will it lead to too much of weight gain??????????

These are some of the questions that come to our mind………………RIGHT

Well here are a few tips that will help you make your DIWALI binge a true feast!

1.Firstly, don’t think too much about calories during the few days of Diwali. Its a time to celebrate with friends and family. Enjoy life!.

FOLLOW MODERATION N YES TRY TO EXERCISE OR BE ACTIVE ATLEAST

2. Eat slowly and have fewer servings of many items – that way you will avoid risking a sugar rush from a particularly sweet product.

3.While cooking sweets use sugar blends like Splenda instead of sugar. You can also use jaggery. Use low fat or fat free milk instead of full fat milk. These will help in reducing the calories in sweets to a certain extent.

4. Plan your meals. If you know you will dine out, then eat less through the day. But don’t go starving to the party. Eat a light snack like a salad, soup, some lightly done vegetables, lentils, milk, yoghurt or nuts before you go out.

5. Choosing your snack well while partying is vital. For instance, eating rasgullas is better than gulab jamuns, which are fried and also high in sugar content. Similarly choose dry fruits over deep fried sweets.

6. Keep a tight control on portion sizes, especially when the variety seems endless.

7. At home, do not allow a build-up of sweets or chocolates. Chances are you’ll end up gorging on these. Get rid of them by gifting these to others.

Finally MODERATIONand EXERCISE is the key to good health.

Happy DIWALI and enjoy yourselves!!!!!

World Mental health day 2017

"Mental health in the workplace" is the theme of World Mental Health Day 2017.

Here are some tips for creating a stress-free work environment

1.Add personal touches. Like  "photographs, inspiring artwork, books, a special lamp or a decorative accessory in your favorite color.”

2.Keep your workspace clean and organized. Mess equals stress.

3.Learn to handle or ignore interruptions. Like an irritating colleague or noisy place.

4.Adapt to changes eg physical changes (office layout), or new software or technology (printers, computers, etc.), you’ll have to learn to adapt quickly.

5.Add plants to your desk, office or cubicle. “Integrating plants in the work environment not only beautifies the environment but has been proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase positive feelings, decrease room temperature and lower humidity,”

6.Be a good communicator. Poor communication often causes confusion (and therefore, stress) in the office.

7.Incorporate relaxation exercises into your work day eg play soft music, stretch occasionally or go for a walk.

8.Redecorate.
Kill the fluorescent lighting in favor of softer, more ambient lighting, “Yellows promote intellectual activity while blues and greens are more restful. Earth tone colors encourage warmth.”

9.Maintain Work/Life Balance. We now live in a world where technology is available to keep us connected to work around the clock. Work options such as flexible scheduling, telecommuting ought to be implemented if applicable.

10.Take a break whether short or long. ..just explore the world.

“Protect your best asset, which is you, while you work.”
