Writing, drawing, and reading

Other ways people can use to improve their memory are the following simple and unexpected things: writing, drawing, and reading. All of them can help people in improving their memory, especially in expressing ideas. The most important part here is how everyone can collect their ideas, process them, and then express it to other people. The next stage is how to make the ideas clear so everyone can understand it.

This is a basic skill that everyone should have since human is a social beings who cannot live without the others. Expressing ideas may become tougher than other exercises since this is also about confidence and talking to other people. Everyone has tongue to speak, but not everyone can speak clearly especially when they are asked to express their ideas about something. This becomes more important because it also trains the brain to process the materials.

Physical Wellness Indicates Physical Health

Anna Banana (34/52)Continuing on the topic of wellness, physical wellness is something that must be kept in mind because in order to achieve wellness in all the other aspects attainable you must remember being fit comes along with it. Most people do not understand that you can be fit, but that does not mean that you’re fit in a healthy manner. That also encourages questions about health to be asked. (Image by Suus Wansink via Flickr)

  • What do you think of, when you hear the term health?
  • What kind of picture is created in your head, when someone tells you, that they are healthy?

You probably already know that in order to prevent the occurrence of heart disease, you should eat foods that are less fatty, or to reduce the possibility of cancer should not smoke cigarettes, and also to practice preventive medical examinations.

But this is still not the whole picture of physical health. Other components are also important, including:

1. Social health, which is the ability to interact with people and the environment in which interpersonal relationships will be carried out with a pleasant feeling.

2. Mental health is the human ability to learn and to soar intellectually.

3. Emotional health is the ability to control emotions and opportunity for appropriate expression.

4. Spiritual health is a belief in a unified force, which is different from person to person.

So when we talk about health, we shouldn’t only focus on our body, but to be interested in social interaction, intellectual dimension, emotions and spirit. Health is the sum of the physical, social, emotional, mental, spiritual status, and the balanced and healthy nutrition.

All these health components are present to a greater or lesser extent. If these components are balanced, then we can say that someone has a perfect wellness condition.

WHAT does it mean to be fit?

To be “fit” means to own all of the above identified aspects or components of fitness. But not only the physical but also the social, mental, emotional, spiritual, and the most important: balanced and healthy diet.

In the past, people significantly less get sick of modern diseases such as cancer, heart disease, blood pressure, etc… And it owes on the much more active and less stressful life, the organic and healthy food, and the soil at that time was much richer in minerals than today.

Fast Weight Loss Exercises

 

A Brand New DayWith working out you want the best weight loss results possible. Well we all know you must first have the motivation to lose weight. In order to have the motivation and want to lose weight, you should try work outs that are fun to you. If you are having fun working out you will have no choice but to enjoy it and lose weight. That is the goal at the end of the day. (Image by Thomas Hawk via Flickr)

Beginning is often the Hardest Part

People often make it harder than it really is in their minds. You wonder what to eat for breakfast, then lunch then dinner. You over think snack foods. You obsess over what to eat while working. It’s very simple, plan your meals. When you plan each meal and snack for a week at a time, you take much of the guesswork in losing weight out of the equation. Shop for what you need to eat for the whole week. Try your best to pick natural whole foods in each meal and snack. Pair a carbohydrate with a protein, being careful not to eat too much of either. Another important part of the beginning process is not to get upset with yourself if you fail at eating well. No one eats perfectly. Be kind to yourself and realize you are making a total lifestyle change in the decision to lose weight.

Beginning an Exercise Program

When beginning an exercise program there are a few things to consider. First, take it slow. Many people go fast and furious at first and either hurt themselves or burn out. Safety is very important. Instead of attempting to do 30 push-ups, try to do five or ten push-ups correctly. Form in exercise is very important. Another important item to consider is beginning with a low impact exercise. Do not expect to be able to do P90X or Insanity your first week of working out. Start with a walk. Aim to walk a mile or so a day. Gradually increase your activity level until you can tolerate hard exercises for thirty plus minutes per day.

Not all Exercise Burns the same Calories

When exercising in order to lose weight, the whole purpose is to get the maximum burn to burn the most calories. When you walk at two miles per hour, you are not burning the calories when you are walking uphill at four miles per hour. Running of course burns more calories than walking. Interval training, which is exercise at your maximum effort for a period for 30 to 90 seconds followed by a minute of rest, is one of the best forms of cardio exercise. It is said to burn three times the calories when compared to just walking or running for the whole 30 minutes. When making the lifestyle change to become a healthier you, expect yourself to fall short some days. Expect greatness on some day too. Expect to feel tired at times and feel like you can conquer the world at other times. It is often a growing experience from the inside out. A good part of being overweight is often the mental part. Mentally we feel unloved, fat and unworthy of being thin. Overcome that mentality and that is most of the battle. When you look back at how much weight loss you experienced, you will amaze yourself.

Vegetable Nutrition Facts

 

Colours of HealthSome of us may not be fans of vegetables; I admit I do not like them (I give exceptions to carrots and pickles). The thing is as much as some of may not like them; we need them for our bodies to function properly. Without vegetables we are not getting the vitamins and so forth that we need. Without all these things our bodies need from vegetables our body is not able to cleanse itself. Here is a nutrition analysis of vegetables! (Image by Alex E. Proimos via Flickr)

 

What are the health benefits of vegetables?

  • Vegetables, like fruits, are low in fat but contain good amounts of vitamins and minerals. All the Green-Yellow-Orange vegetables are rich sources of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, beta-carotene, vitamin B-complex, vitamin-C, vitamin A, and vitamin K.
  • As in fruits, vegetables too are home for many antioxidants that; firstly, help protect the human body from oxidant stress, diseases and cancers, and secondly; help the body develop the capacity to fight against these by boosting immunity.
  • Additionally, vegetables are packed with soluble as well as insoluble dietary fiber known as non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) such as cellulose, mucilage, hemi-cellulose, gums, pectin…etc. These substances absorb excess water in the colon, retain a good amount of moisture in the fecal matter, and help its smooth passage out of the body. Thus, sufficient fiber offers protection from conditions like hemorrhoids, colon cancer, chronic constipation, and rectal fissures.

Vegetable nutrition has widely drawn the attention of fitness conscious as well as food scientists alike for their proven health benefits. Majority of day to day used vegetables are very low in calories.

Furthermore, human body spends a considerable amount of energy for the metabolism of foods, which is known as BMR or Basal metabolism rate. So just imagine…when you add lots of vegetable nutrition in the diet, in fact, you set to lose more weight than you would gain…Right!..This is the concept behind the “negative calorie foods.”
