Healthy Living Tips
Healthy Living TipsLearn to sustain what you already achieved: having a healthy and proper diet is already difficult. Even harder is the task of sustaining it and making sure that what you achieved previously in terms of your health and detoxification is not wasted by just going back to your bad habits.

Clear your cupboard of unhealthy foods: When you see chips and other unhealthy foods that you like, you will be tempted to eat them. Thus, it is best if you won’t see them at all. With that, it is time that you clear your cupboard of these unhealthy food items. Aside from that, you should replace them with foods that are recommended in your diet.

Purchase a log book: Use a log book or even a simple notebook to note down the foods that you have eaten for the day. Aside from that, it should also contain the foods that you are planning to eat for the following days. By doing that, you can prevent unconscious eating, and be on your way to better health with your diet.

Get yourself tested for body fat: If you want to make sure if you are able to hit your goals or not, then you can get yourself tested for body fat. Getting tested does not have to be done on a weekly basis. You can do it prior to starting your program, and again a month or two after. Some gyms offer it at reasonable prices; thus, you should visit them soon.

Cayenne Pepper: To warm up cold feet sprinkle a bit of cayenne pepper into your socks. This folk remedy may help warm your toes by increasing circulation and improving blood flow.

Taking a bath before going to sleep at night is recommended for those who have allergies with pollen: It is difficult to avoid pollen but reducing your exposure can be attainable. Stay inside especially on hot, dry and windy days. Always close your windows and doors with your air conditioner on.

It is best not to share your bedroom with your pets especially if you have allergies: Place them in a separate room to avoid inhaling their hair and dead skin cells. Sometimes others who have different type of allergy may develop allergic reaction to pets more often to those who share bed with their pets.

Eat at your dining table: When you eat elsewhere around your house, there may be a tendency that you could eat more than you should. This is because playing on your computer, or watching the television may distract your brain from accepting the signal from your stomach that it is already full. Therefore, if you want to lose weight, you should eat at your dining table.

Happiness is Health and a Short Memory!
Happiness is Health and a Short Memory!

Calling it lunacy makes it easier to explain away the things we don't understand. — Megan Chance (The Spiritualist)

Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate!O any thing, of nothing first create!O heavy lightness, serious vanity,Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms,Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!This love feel I, that feel no love in this. — William Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)

The trouble is, depression doesn't come with handy symptoms like spots and a temperature, so you don't realize it at first. You keep saying “I'm fine” to people when you're not fine. You think you SHOULD be fine. You keep saying to yourself: “Why aren't I fine? — Sophie Kinsella (Finding Audrey)

The last scud of day holds back for me, It flings my likeness after the rest and true as any on the shadow'd wilds, It coaxes me to the vapor and the dusk.I depart as air, I shake my white locks at the runaway sun, I effuse my flesh in eddies, and drift it in lacy jags.I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love, If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.You will hardly know who I am or what I mean, But I shall be good health to your nevertheless,And filter and fibre your blood.Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,Missing me one place, search another,I stop somewhere waiting for you. — Walt Whitman

Men are attracted to beauty because it indicates health and youth—no point mating with a sickly woman who won’t be around to raise the children. — Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1))
