2013: New Year’s Resolution.

Leave a comment

The first day in January marks the beginning of a new year! Often, people commit to a NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION. We pledge to create success through various means: While some wish to lose weight, others hope to omit negative habits from their life…

Though it’s only been a matter of months since I wove it into my regular routine, cigarette smoking is something that I want to remove from my life completely. It is a filthy habit, and nothing good has come of it. So, my 2013 resolution: cease to continue with my habitual poisoning. In addition to the costly price, the awful smell, and the constant wheeze, cigarettes are comprised of ingredients that are VERY terrible for your health! Just take a look at everything you inhale from the cigarettes you smoke: (And then think twice about grabbing that lighter…)

Don’t Forget to DRINK Water!

Leave a comment

Up to 75% of our body’s weight is made up of water. When more water is leaving our body than is being taken in, we will begin to show signs of dehydration. If you feel thirsty, you’re already showing a sign of dehydration. If your spit is white in color, or foamy at all, you do not have enough water in your body to make saliva. The amount of water you need to drink per day varies, depending on your body size. To determine how much water you should be drinking on the daily, see the breakdown below:
.
BODY WEIGHT DAILY                   FLUID REQUIREMENTS
100 pounds                                     50 ounces (6-7 glasses)
150 pounds                                     65 ounces (8-9 glasses)
200 pounds                                     70 ounces (8-9 glasses)
.
Try this little trick to see whether your skin wants you to drink more water: with your thumb and index finger, pinch the skin covering the knuckle of any other finger. If the skin of your knuckles stays pinched up, you’re stepping into dehydration. Completely hydrated, the skin on your knuckle will return to place, unaffected by the pinch. Our bodies don’t function well without water, so make sure you are always drinking plenty. And it might not be a bad idea to drink an extra few glasses this week, for all the water that you haven’t been drinking over the holiday season. Happy New Year, everybody!

Ahhh… Germs!

1 Comment

So you’ve caught influenza, again (commonly shortened to “the flu”).

You’re achy and uncomfortable, sinuses plugged, and your garbage can is filling quickly with used tissues… Obligations still call, but dare you go out? See the facts below…

FACTS ABOUT THE FLU / COMMON COLD:

.

1)  You may be infected with the flu, and be able to spread germs, for up to 24 HOURS before you show symptoms.

2)  Flu germs spread from person to person by way of coughing, sneezing or simply talking. That’s because droplets from an infected person get into the air and are inhaled by people nearby.

3)  Anyone within 3 FEET can easily be infected.

4)  Flu germs also are spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth.

5)  Flu germs can live FOR HOURS on surfaces like doorknobs, desks and tables. (health.ny.gov)

6)  Since germs spread through touch, you should never sneeze into your hands.

7)  A sneeze can launch mucus from your body at 30-45 MILES AN HOUR, landing it 10-20 FEET from the source. (dsc.discovery.com)

.

The more you exert your energy into something while ill, the less focus your body can spend on building itself stronger. Without rest, your immune system hasn’t the energy needed to hastily eliminate the invading virus.

To minimize the spread of germs: sneeze into the crook of your elbow and don’t bring yourself (and your germs) into the public. Focus on healing yourself: wash your hands frequently (in warm water), drink plenty of fluids, and get some rest!!

Don’t pour your money into the routine pills and bottles of syrups that you find at the drugstores. Drinking fluids, resting your body, and eating a variety of  healthy foods is best for you at this time. And there are plenty of alternatives, available under your own roof!

Garlic: For thousands of years, garlic has been used as a medicinal herb. Many studies show that, since garlic contains antiviral and antibiotic properties, consuming it will help to shorten the length of your illness.
