A Quick Rundown of Health

Little Things That Make A Difference

Most of the time, we treat trifling details in our daily grind as negligible and unimportant, and we then move on to focus on what we believe are the most pressing things. So here are examples of what we perceive as unimportant issues but have, actually, made considerable influence in the way we think and act.

The Importance of Sleep

Each part of our body was designed to have a purpose and a role to play, such that sleep is a naturally occurring process and a brain function, which contributes by forming new mind thoughts and, at the same time, processes information absorbed in the mind. Sleep is so important that not being able to get a sufficient 8 hours of sleep rest can create a gradual brain malfunction in terms of not being able for the brain to normally perform as designed. On top of being an important part of brain function, long periods of sleep restore and rejuvenate us, helps indirectly the growth muscle, repairs tissue and synthesize hormones – all of which stemmed up from the brain.

Importance of Personal Hygiene

Making a good habit of performing personal hygiene daily is tantamount to maintaining good health and, therefore, simple daily tasks of washing the hands when using the toilet or making/eating food, or handling pets/animals, plants, taking a bath daily, brushing the teeth 2-3 times every day including flossing, can make a tremendous contribution to a healthy body. We reap a better health when we do our part in performing the habit of good hygiene since it does not just keep our body clean and smelling good, but also prevents sickness and infection from bacteria or viruses.

Stress Management

Stress is a mind thing, your body’s way of responding to pressure which is caused by both good and bad experiences. These are the physical symptoms in the body when there is stress – fast heartbeat and breathing, headache, back pain, stiff neck or tight shoulders, sweating, and upset stomach or diarrhea. Over time, when stress is not properly handled will eventually affect most of the body parts and can go as far as developing panic attack to some. There are many ways of avoiding stress, such as getting enough sleep, exercise, managing time for work and yourself, making a balance in life, finding your purpose in life, and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Worth of Water

Water reigns over the survival of life, such that without water, there would be no life on earth. The body uses water to help regulate the temperature of the cells, organs, tissues and to maintain other bodily functions. By making the body fully hydrated, which is drinking as much as 2-3 liters of water daily, you attain a healthy heart condition, as well as a total healthy body. Water volume in the body must be maintain, otherwise, a lack of it will result to dehydration which can cause the blood to thicken such that there’s resistance to blood flow; the total effect is high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.

Living with Air

Oxygen is vital to the body’s normal function to burn sugars and fatty acids for the cells to be energized. There is a cycle process going about when we get oxygen from the air we breathe in and releasing carbon dioxide, at the same time, which is a compound found also in the air and which is an important compound for plant photosynthesis. Just like water, air is equally important for life’s survival.
