Laugh a while and beat stress

Standard

We all know that our health is directly linked to the stress level we have. We eat more when we are under stress, and weight loss becomes difficult. Both men and women often wonder why they are unable to lose weight instead of doing everything from diet to exercise: stress is the main reason behind as it creates craving.

So, this weekend instead of writing serious stuff, I am giving some interesting quotes, which would surely help you release some stress. The fact is if you want to be healthy, find fun in everything and make it your daily habit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How 3 mistakes make men unhealthy?

Standard

11      There are certain mistakes men do in their 30s which can result in weight gain and weak bones. The problem is that most men don’t even know that they are doing these mistakes. Below are 3 common mistakes men do in their 30s.

1. Stretching is unnecessary

Most men think that they should stretch out only in 40s, but that’s a completely wrong concept. You should stretch at any age so that it can make you healthy later on. Men often think that if they are active now they will remain so in 30s but that’s not true. The bone mass starts decreasing in 30s which may cause fracture any time due to an accident.

Most men are busy getting somewhere in their career and long sitting hours make them overweight. Same way if they don’t exercise it would further lead to old age disability. Weight training isn’t enough which men do in 20s. They should do a mix of stretches, aerobics and weight training for flexibility. Sometime just weight training may cause backbone issue in men. So, by doing a mix of exercises, men can burn more calories especially if they also take healthy diet.

2. They don’t take stress

Another misconception is that men don’t take much stress compared to women, but that’s wrong. The fast life and competitive professional environment creates lot of stress in men. This stress further may increases if you are also married in 30s, because you have kids and home responsibilities, as well as less sleeping hours. Hence, you need to work out more to cope with all such stress.

According to Dr. Steven Lamm, from NYU Langone Medical Center some men withdraw themselves in stress and their suppressed feelings can create mood swings in them. Some other men start drinking more so all these conditions lead to poor health and life threatening diseases. So, three things can make men healthy and relaxed, including exercise, good nutrition and good sleep.

 3. They don’t need a doctor

Most men in their 30s only go to doctor when it’s an emergency, as otherwise they don’t even see a doctor in months or years. This is obviously a bad habit, because visiting a doctor at least once a month is important so that you can monitor your cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure levels.  Moreover, sometime your doctor can warn you about a disease looking at the tests. So, by just changing your lifestyle you can save yourself from any health risk. According to the American Cancer Society a large percentage of men get testicular cancer during 20s to 30s which can be treated if diagnosed earlier. So, all these factors show that men in 30s must follow a healthy lifestyle and should maintain it forever.

How to maintain weight through food vibration?

Standard

 

Most people categorize food as proteins, fat and carbohydrates, hardly they know that food has vibration, the electrical energy that is possessed by all natural things.  Type of vibration determines whether the food is good or bad for health. Same way our body’s vibration is directly linked to what we eat.

12   Food vibration means how much natural or vital energy it has, depending if it’s organic or processed. The vibrational frequency of every food determines its quality and energy level. The unit being used to measure energy level is called Hertz.  The lower Hertz shows poor food and higher Hertz depict healthy food. See the chart given below.

Food types and their vibration levels

Type of foods                                Energy vibration levels

Inorganic or processed foods             0 Hz

Organic and fresh foods                     15 Hz

Herbs as fresh and natural                12 to 27 Hz

Dry herbs                                            2 to 27 Hz

Foods with no vibration make our body weak, like processed and inorganic foods.  We eat such foods only to pamper our hunger as otherwise they lack nutrition. Such foods are toxic which not only make us sick but also increase body weight.

The natural tendency of our bodies is to have organic foods rich in vibration levels which give us energy, keeping the hormone levels well balanced.

 Factors required for choosing high vibration food

Keep in mind that not every organic food is rich in energy. There are three factors that can help you determine if the food is good or bad in terms of its energy levels.

  1. Organic foods which are grown without using any chemicals, also known as certified foods.
  2. Always go for locally grown organic because imported food lacks in nutrition. Moreover, you can also contribute in the economy by buying local.
  3. Always buy seasonal foods because they are fresh and nutritious, whereas stored foods get chemicals and lose their vibration level making it less healthy. So, always eat fresh fruits and vegetables for good health and weight loss.
