We’re all prone to making resolutions we can’t keep, and it’s often improvements to our health that we struggle to maintain. Maybe you don’t want to spend all of your spare time at the gym and live on a diet consisting solely of green vegetables. Of course, if that’s how you define healthy living then it might be time for you to change your mindset. A healthy lifestyle is all about getting the right balance in your daily routine. If you’re struggling to do that then here are some ideas that should help you to improve your health this year.

Get into a pattern of regular exercise.

You might not lead a completely sedentary lifestyle, but many of us struggle to maintain a regular exercise routine. Of course, regular exercise is the best way to stay healthy. The occasional 5-hour session at the gym will do less for your health than a daily 30-minute run. You’ll make exercise a habit if you find a physical activity that you can fit into your daily routine. Exercising will do more than keep you in good shape. Even a brisk walk can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and many other health problems. Keeping active will also keep your brain active; it’ll improve your mental health and keep you young throughout your life. A tiny dose of daily exercise can work wonders for your overall physical and mental wellbeing. It can even help to improve your sleeping pattern, but we’ll talk about that more in the final point.

Get into a better sleeping routine.

Another important way in which you could improve your health this year is to get into a better sleeping routine. Many of us don’t sleep well enough in modern society. It’s a product of the times. We’re all told that we need to be busy and productive people to succeed in the world. As a result, rest often isn’t a priority for many of us. But there are more negative health benefits to sleep deprivation than feeling tired. A lack of sleep can affect your mental health and even slow your metabolism. If you want to see the effects of a healthy diet and an exercise routine then you need to make sure you get enough sleep. Otherwise, your body won’t be getting the rest and recovery it needs to get into a healthy shape.

Of course, for some people, the problem is that they can’t get to sleep in the first place. If you have insomnia then it can be hard to get a sufficient amount of sleep even if you go to bed early. Stress, anxiety, depression and many other mental issues can make it difficult to switch off your brain and fall asleep. You might even want to see medical specialists at Advanced Urology if your sleeping routine has been disrupted by stress incontinence. We mentioned earlier that your mental health can affect your physical health. And, as already discussed, sleep deprivation only makes mental health issues worse, so it can be hard to fix this issue. That’s why it’s important to give yourself time to unwind and relax before bedtime. Meditation can help to quieten an overactive mind too; focusing on the present moment is a great way to center yourself and find your calm place. We’ll talk more about improving your mental health in the next point.

Cut back on excessive habits.

You might not notice the health effects of your bad habits today, but you’ll definitely start to see the consequences as the years go by. For example, teenagers can eat excessive amounts of food without putting on weight, but the metabolism starts to slow down as we get older. It’s better to make a change early in life whilst your body is still growing and more likely to recover. Treats are fine, but you need to be mindful of habits that are excessive. The occasional alcoholic beverage is fine, but drinking too much can damage your liver and even increase your waistline. The point is that everything is fine in moderation, but you need to cut back on excessive habits that have gone too far. And if your behavior is bordering on addictive then you might even want to seek therapy or other professional help. Make this the year that you finally confront your unhealthy habits and start making a positive change for your future. You’ll thank yourself in the future when you can continue to enjoy a happy and healthy life.

Do something to inspire you

Sometimes it is nice to do something that inspires you, and often things like going to a museum or an art gallery does exactly that. It gives you a chance to learn and expand your knowledge while also feeling inspired pin different ways. Websites like VirtosuArt.com can show you a great gallery to attend, however a quick search online will highlight some of the local attractions you have close to you. You may find that there are some great spots locally you don’t know existed.

Exercise and feel good

Exercising is a great way to spend your weekend and while you won’t’ be doing it all day everyday, there are aspects of activity you can do during the weekend that not only give you all the benefits of exercise but can also give you a fun activity and thing to do. Hiking, walking, swimming and running are all activities that can be enjoyed over the course of a weekend.

Catch up with friends and family

Maybe you want to socialise over the weekend and I don’t blame you. It is one of the only opportunities you get enjoy a later night than usual without the follow up of having to get up super early for work or other commitments in your life. Catching up with friends and family is a great way to spend your weekend.

Cook up a storm

Not all of us get the time to cook up meals from scratch during the week so use the time you have on the weekend to your advantage and really cook something up. Cooking can actually be very therapeutic as well so you may find that it is a relaxing activity as well as fun one.

Enjoy a pamper session

Again during the week we often don’t get much time in the evenings to ourselves, so a weekend is the ideal time to reinvest some time into yourself. It could be that you enjoy a pamper evening where you put on a face mask, give yourself a manicure or pedicure or even just enjoy a long soak in the bath with a good book. Bliss.

Paint the town red

Finally, why not go out and paint the town red? Or whatever colour you like. A night out may not be something you do too often these days, but a girls night out or a date night with your loved one can really inject the spark and happiness back into your life.

I hope that this has given you some inspiration on how you can make the most of your weekends.

Unhealthy Habits that are Hurting your Waistline

Losing weight isn’t easy to say the least. At times you may feel as though the world is against you and this is especially the case when you step on the scales and find out that you have actually gained weight. If you want to know what could be harming your weight loss efforts or if you simply want to understand why you are gaining weight in the first place then you can find out whatever you’d like to know right here.

Diet Soda

A lot of people believe thatdiet soda gives them the chance to drink all of the pop that they need and without gaining any weight. Studies have shown that those who drink more than two cans of diet soda a day are six times more likely to gain weight when compared to those who don’t.

Not Enough Sleep

If you aren’t getting enough sleep at night then this could be ruining your mood and your waistline. If you are tired then you may not be able to make good decisions and you may not also put as much thought into the meals that you choose to have. For example, if you are tired then the last thing that you will want to do is come home and make dinner. You may end up going for a takeaway as a result, and this can seriously cause your body harm. Getting enough sleep is crucial when you are trying to lose weight, and it can have a huge impact on your health.

Alcohol

Alcohol could also be making you gain weight. This is especially the case if you are having pre-mixed cocktails and the main reason for this is because they are packed full of sugar and they may also be harming your health way more than you realise. If you have a drinking problem then the Canadian Health Recovery Centre Toronto rehab team can help.

Chemicals

If you are trying to lose weight then there is a high chance that you will have heard of phthalates. This is a group of chemicals that are normally used to create plastic. The link between this chemical and obesity is slowly increasing and if you want to avoid this, then the best way to do so would be to try and avoid plastic as much as possible. When packing up your vegetables at the supermarket, try and opt for brown paper instead of plastic bags and also try and avoid bottled water by taking a flask to thegym and by also investing in a water purifier. This will save you money, give you great-tasting water and it will also help you to really boost your weight-loss efforts.

So losing weight can be a challenging process, but the end result is well worth it and you’d be surprised at how easy it is for you to really go that extra mile when it comes to the little things in your life that you may not be thinking about.

3 Easy Ways To Help A Friend In Need Of Fitness

There’s nothing worse than a friend trying to convince their nearest and dearest to do something that they simply don’t have any inclination of doing. If you are chilling in front of the TV with the latest box set and an awesome tub of gelato, there’s no way you’ll be saying yes to that pal who turns up at your door lycra-laden wanting you to whip on your gym gear and attend the advanced spin class with them. While you may have a friend who could do with a health overhaul, it’s not up to you to force them to face their fitness demons. They have to want it for themselves. And even then, you can’t be all guns blazing everytime you see them, trying to coax them to a boxercise session, head to the latest raw food vegan restaurant or stop them from buying a donut like an overbearing mother. Take a look at how you can help a friend in need of fitness without alienating them in the process.

Vices

It’s all too easy to take an authoritarian approach when trying to help a friend in need. You need to be more relaxed and remember why you are friends in the first place. Go out, have fun, partake in a few drinks, meet up over dinner and don’t look perturbed if and when they order dessert. You need to be a pal and lead by example. If you have recently quit smoking and your bestie is interested in your latest e-liquid, consider purchasing them a vape kit to help them give the nicotine the heave-ho. If you’ve both been known to enjoy a bottle of wine or two or three on a night out, go teetotal for a little while. The chances are your friend will join you to support you, not realizing that it is you turning the tables on them. Sneaky and sly, but also caring and supportive!

Gym Buddies

Forget about turning up their doorstep unannounced and making them attend a workout with you. Instead, ask your friend if they wouldn’t mind heading to the gym with you once or twice a week to help you train for a 5k run, a hike or a cycle ride. As a pal, they’ll be more than willing to do this. As you have more fun down at the gym, you will both be more eager to attend classes, try new exercises and have a go on more of the equipment. This will aid your friend’s fitness levels, help them lose weight and ensure that they lower their risk of developing diabetes and high blood pressure.

Food

Rather than heading out for dinner, why not encourage dinner parties amongst your friendship group. Every week you could take turns to cook up a culinary extravaganza. You could challenge yourself to invent a three-course dinner party menu for under 800 calories. By doing this you are taking on a shared responsibility and it will prevent your friend from feeling so alone in their fitness quest.

Being a good friend isn’t about showing tough love. By doing this, you run the risk of your pal not returning your calls for a while or even losing your relationship altogether. Lead by example, talk lots and simply be a listening ear. When ready, you can embark upon a health journey together and be the ultimate supportive friend.

Preparing Your Face For Bed

Your bedtime routine is something that everybody does differently. But one thing we can all agree on is that it is the time for your skin to breathe, even if we don’t let it as much as we should! So you wipe your face down, put some moisturiser on, and then get under the covers to sleep the night away. But is that all you should do?

When it comes to a nighttime routine, there’s a lot you need to do to make sure you wake up with the best foundation to work with. And that means you need to clean your face and do it properly; here’s a few tips on making sure your skin can properly breathe throughout the night, that you won’t wake up with new blemishes, and that your makeup will glide on smoothly on tomorrow.

Wash First

You need to be rid of your makeup and dredges of the day behind you before you do anything else, and you shouldn’t ever lay your head down on your pillow when you’ve still got some concealer clinging to your cheeks and mascara continuously drying on your eyes. Not only is it going to be much healthier for the future of your skin, but it minimises on the laundry you’re going to have to do that week as well!

So you can wash properly with some soap and a sink of water, but you should take the top layer of makeup off first. And if you don’t have makeup wipes in order to do so, don’t worry; normal wet wipes work just as well, or just some cotton pads and a bit of water to be as gentle as possible to avoid the soreness of constantly scrubbing the eyeliner away. But next time you’re at the store, make sure you pick up some makeup remover. There’s all kinds out there, for all different skin types, and you can save your pennies buying the store brands rather than the named brands: they’re about the same as each other.

Then get your cleanser out to open up your pores; it’s something a lot of people forget to do in their routine, but it’s going to mean you won’t wake up with an errant spot or pimple on your forehead in the morning. Get the dirt out and literally feel the weight falling off of you.

Exfoliate the Dead Cells Off

This is where some cold water comes in from the aforementioned sink, and then you can pull out the proper face exfoliators to make sure you get the last dredges of skin cells that are doing nothing for you anymore. A whole new layer of healthy skin is underneath, don’t you absolutely want it to flourish under your care?

So before you give up on your routine and head to bed, this is the final necessary step before any of the finishing touches that you don’t actually have to do. Always make sure you’re using water at this point to make sure you’re not causing too much sensitivity in your pores; plenty of spots can form at this point as well, and that’s something you’re trying to avoid!

Use Some Creams

If you have any to spare that is. A lot of people prefer to use these in the morning before you put the rest of your makeup on, so you’re perfectly fine to leave these until then if you’re too tired. But if your skin is looking a little bit red, or you can feel the dryness starting to seep in, this is the time to rub in some moisturiser. All over your face that is, you don’t want to forget your lips before you nod off; mouth breathing is more of a killer for your smooth skin than you think!

You don’t need too much cream or oil here, as only a touch on the most neglected parts of your face are going to do wonders for that area. So if you have dry patches, or you have a blemish that’s just starting to appear with how much cleansing you’re doing, put those problem spots to bed now.

Preparing your face for bed is a bit of a task, so don’t worry if you’re not always up to it. But the sooner you turn it into the habit it should be, the more effective it’s going to be for your looks and your health. It’s something lots of people dismiss, but when combined with sleep? The best move!

Advice For Reducing The Cost Of Staying Healthy

Everyone knows that staying healthy can cost a lot of money if you aren’t careful. Junk food is usually cheaper than anything else you might find at your local store, and so those who struggle will often end up consuming meals that do nothing for their health. With that in mind, there are some tips and tricks mentioned in this article that will help you to save a fortune and ensure you don’t have to break the bank to care for your body and ensure it remains in excellent condition. As with anything in this world, sometimes you have to seek some advice and use some common sense for the best outcomes.

Buy your food in bulk

Lots of people make the mistake of visiting their local store every night on their way home from work to pick something up for dinner. That is a terrible idea because you could end up spending more than twice the amount each month that it would cost to purchase the same items in bulk. So, do yourself a favor and ensure you take the time to conduct a big shop once each week. Make a list of ingredients for healthy meal recipes you find online, and make sure you leave any junk food on the shelves. As you will discover, the price of purchasing six chicken breasts is much lower than three times the cost of buying two. You get the idea, right?

Work out for free at home

Many adults waste lots of money on gym memberships every year. There is no need to pay to get in shape and work out if you’re sensible. You could purchase some of the latest celebrity exercise DVDs and try them out at home. You could even start jogging around the streets in your local area if you think that idea will work for you. There are no limits to what you can achieve if you can find the right levels of motivation and stick to your strategy. Paying $40 per month for a gym membership you rarely use is a waste of time and resources.

Get the right medical insurance package

You need the right medical insurance in place if you want to ensure you never have to spend a fortune when you visit your doctor or the hospital for health-related issues. Learn about Medicare by searching online and reading as many of the most recent advice articles as possible. You can also ask for suggestions from your local hospital or doctor’s surgery. The people working in those establishments should have all the information required to point you in the right direction and ensure you don’t overspend this year.

With a bit of luck; you can use the advice and suggestions from this article to limit your health-related spending this year while ensuring your body remains in perfect condition. The last thing anyone wants is to become unfit and unhealthy because that could result in lots of medical appointments and severe issues further down the line. So, create your plan today and turn your situation around!

Herbal Remedies To Help Reduce Pain

Image Source

If you’re looking for a natural way to relieve pain or simply want a supplement on top of your meds, there are plenty of options out there that could do the trick. Here are just a few herbal remedies that could help to fight the discomfort.

Turmeric

Turmeric has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties as well as boosting the immune system. It’s most commonly used to help relieve pain caused by arthritis. You can take turmeric in the form of pills or mix it in with foods (it’s a popular ingredient in curries!).

Ginger

Got a stomach ache? Ginger has long been used as pain relief for digestive problems and menstrual pain. It can also be effective at fighting nausea, helping to line the stomach wall. You can take ginger in many forms – it’s most commonly taken in ginger tea and you can incorporate it into many meals including stir fry and cakes.

Devil’s Claw

This strange looking plant gets its name from it’s reddish claw like appearance. When digested as a herb, some people have found it to be a potent form of pain relief that can help with everything from joint paint to heartburn. Devil’s claw can affect blood pressure and heart rate, so you may want to avoid it if you have a heart disorder. You can take devil’s claw extract in doses using products found at your local pharmacy.

Cannabis oil

Cannabis oil can also be an effective form of pain relief. It’s most commonly used to treat chronic pain such as arthritis or degenerative conditions. It’s legal and processed differently from the recreational drug – you may be able to find it at your local pharmacy or online.

Willow Bark

The bark of a willow tree has long been used to treat headaches. This is because it contains the chemical salicin, which is commonly found in aspirin. In fact, many people use it as an alternative to aspirin and other chemical painkillers due to its effectiveness. You can ingest willow bark in various different forms including herbal tea and capsules, which you can usually find at a pharmacy or health store.

Bromelain

Love pineapple? Bromelain is key ingredient in this tropical fruit and has long been used to help relieve chronic pain. It breaks down proteins to help fight inflammation and is popularly used by people suffering from arthritis. Unfortunately, you’re unlikely to get the impact from just eating pineapple alone – you’re better off taking bromelain as an extract in the form of pills or liquid.  

Ginseng

Ginseng is most commonly used to fight the effects of fibromyalgia and translates from Chinese as ‘all-healing man root’. Its relaxing qualities have also been found to be effective against migraines and joint pain. You can take ginseng in the form of pills or as a herbal tea.

Five Ways Exercise Makes You Beautiful

If you are looking for an extra reason to exercise, or are simply lacking motivation, you might want to know that exercise is proven to make you more beautiful. You will not only get the benefits of increased energy and weight loss, but also look and feel younger and more beautiful of you work out regularly.

  1. Radiant Skin

If you exercise your pores and increase your body temperature through exercising, you will benefit from radiant skin. Through sweating during exercise, you will detoxify your skin. Your face will appear more radiant, fresher, and smoother. If you would like to skip the next cosmetic treatment or exfoliating, you can simply do some HIIT exercises to get the same results for free.

  1. Better Posture

Our posture is supported by muscles, and the more you exercise them the better your body will look standing up or sitting down. If your lower back muscles are not strong enough to keep your spine straight, you will not only develop pain, but also walk differently. Working out on the squat rack can strengthen your back, neck, and shoulder muscles at the same time.  Women who often wear high heels can benefit from exercise the most, as they will have stronger spine muscles and calves to keep them in the right posture walking and standing.

  1. Detoxification

It is also important to note that exercise releases some hormones and minerals that help your body flush out toxins. Not only from your skin, but also your internal organs and the invisible places. As you usually drink more water when you work out, you will help your body stay healthy for younger. A healthy body, in turn, looks and feels better.

  1. Visceral Fat Reduction

While most people start an exercise routine to get rid of the surface fat and “love handles”, working out and increasing your heart rate, exercising different muscle groups can also help you reduce visceral fat, surrounding your internal organs. This fat is invisible and can cause several health issues and digestive problems, even diabetes. If you can reduce your visceral fat, you can have healthy organs that will be able to release antioxidants faster.

  1. Goodbye Cellulite

If your main goal is to increase your self esteem, and you are unhappy about your cellulite, you might want to know that antioxidants and hormones released during exercise can tackle the problem. While creams and supplements exist to deal with cellulite, there is nothing quite as effective as working out vigorously for an hour or so three times a week. You will see a difference in just a couple of weeks, and your skin will feel stronger, firmer, and more flexible than if you were dieting only.

People work out regularly for many reasons. Some would like to live longer, others want to look better and feel more confident in their skin. No matter what your motivation is, you must know that exercise makes you beautiful in many ways.

Call your friends and explain

The first thing you need to remember is that some of the people around you will never notice that you feel depressed. That is because you mask your emotions, and your friends are not mind readers. So, you need to make a point of talking to them and explaining your issue. Maybe you could invite your closest friends around for a cup of coffee or something similar? Try not to go out when you need to have that conversation because you might struggle in public. With a bit of luck, your friends will give you a hug and then make sure they take the time to check on you and spend time with you. When you know that people care, it’s much easier to beat depression than it otherwise would have been.

Start exercising as much as possible

All doctors claim that exercise is one of the best cures for depression. That isn’t just those medical professionals trying to encourage you to get healthy. There is lots of scientific evidence for their stance, and so you should consider joining a local gym or something similar. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins and serotonin that help to lift your mood and make you feel happy. Even if you don’t like the idea of working out around other people, nothing is stopping you from buying some exercise DVDs and enjoying them at home when everyone else goes out for the day. You can also try jogging or running around the streets or a field in your area.

Consume a healthy diet and avoid too much sugar

People who consume unhealthy foods that contain a lot of sugar mess around with their emotions every single day. While it’s not classed as such by most authorities, sugar is a stimulant that increases your energy and works in much the same way as some mild amphetamine. While you need some of it to remain healthy; you should avoid Coca-Cola, chocolate, and anything filled with too much of the substance. When it comes to planning your diet, read as many advice articles as possible online. A recent post entitled 5 Weight Loss Musts For Optimal Success claimed that getting down to your ideal size is more about what you don’t put in your body than what you do.

You might even work out that your relationship is the case of your low mood according to a recent blog post entitled 11 Signs You Need To Leave Your Relationship.
