Doing Wellness The Right Way

Making A Great Impact from Seemingly Small Things

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. These are what we thought are trivial situations, but actually have already impacted on us whether favorably or not.

The Importance of Sleep

Sleep is a natural body function which is performed every night, because part of the brain has to renew its mind pathways and process whatever information that has been input that day. 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. The brain happens to be the mastermind where all body functions coordinate to and perform, so that not having enough sleep can cut short the normal brain function, which in turn will affect the rest of the body performances, such as muscle growth, tissue repairs, and hormone balance synthesis.

Effects 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. The effect of good personal hygiene is priceless as it helps in maintaining good health for our body by way of making our body clean always, thus preventing illness and infection coming from bacteria or viruses.

Understanding Stress

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.

Water’s Wondrous Ways

All living things and creatures are dependent on water to survive. The body uses water to help regulate the temperature of the cells, organs, tissues and to maintain other bodily functions. Drinking about 2-3 liters of water every day can help with the heart condition and maintain a balanced and healthy body. Dehydration is a result of less water volume in the body, which when in this condition can make the blood thicker causing resistance to blood flow and resulting to a high blood pressure and possibly a rise in blood cholesterol.

How Important is Air

Our body cannot live without oxygen because is it a normal life function that helps burn the fats and sugars for the cells to produce energy. Oxygen is taken from the air that we breathe in, and with that as we take in oxygen we also, at the same time release carbon dioxide into the air, which is taken in by the plants during photosynthesis. Therefore, air is so important for life to continue, for survival.
