Obedience Brings Blessings
If You Don't Stand For Something, You'll Fall For Anything.
When life gets too hard to stand...kneel.
It's hard to stumble when you're on your knee.
Dirty water can also put out Fire.
The greatest help is self- help.
The secret to getting ahead is getting started.
It's not how many times you fall, but how many times you get up what makes you a WINNER.
Only one SIN that can not be forgiven is; THE REJECTION OF CHRIST.

If you eat grapefruit, do not take medication. A group of chemical in tangy fruit- called furanocoumarins- can prevent certain meds from being broken down in the body. It can cause kidney failure, cardiac arrest, or even sudden death. Currently, 85 meds are known to interact badly. So, next time you want to eat grapefruit, check with your family doctor or a pharmacist first if it's okay to eat it with your meds.

THIS IS YOUR YEAR
It's time to make your resolutions mean something. If you're just beginning a training regimen for the New Year, you face some crappy odds of success. A recent study showed that almost 50% of people who begin an exercise program drop out in six months. Especially around January. People are setting unrealistic goals. They want to look like Conan or Jennifer Lopez in six months and when they fail, they'll quit altogether. They go from sitting around doing nothing and eating chips to wanting to train everyday and eat Paleo. To me, going to the gym 5 days a week and eating right everyday is part of growing up or part of life. Like brushing your teeth every morning and changing your underwear every day. If you can force yourself to repeat your habit everyday for 12 weeks, your body will get use to it. Here are three things you can do to help you getting some real results.
1. GET ON A PROGRAM
You can't just walk into a gym, walk on a treadmill, do one tricep exercise, check on your cell phone, then go home. I saw a gym fellow does this for the last 5 years and he gotten fatter. You need to have a plan. Talk with the people who work there, they can help you. They're not there just for decoration or your prop. They can help you.
2. FIND A FRIEND
You need inspiration, motivation, and encouragement. You need a friend who leads the life style you want. Be friend to that person. Don't be jealous, learn from her/ him. You can take advantage of their energy and commitment.
3. TELL THE WORLD
Publicly stating your fitness goals to friends puts you on the spot in social situations and can force compliance. That is why I'm doing this. I have my website to show the world that I'm working out. You must make yourself to hold you accountable!
THE BEST MEDICATION
Training doesn't just chase the blues away; a new study shows that it may also help fight depression. Researchers studying a group of clinically depressed people found that those who began going to the gym were able to boost their mood whether they exercised a lot or a little. By the end of 12 week study, 30% of patients in both groups reached full remission.

Clean Your Mouth
Periodontitis is a disease believe to affect more than 30% of the population. It's an infection of the gums that can result in tooth loss, but more important, it can also lead to heart diseases and diabetes.
The best way to prevent this disease is to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and practice good dental hygiene consistently throughout life. Visit your dentist every 3 months if you currently have the problem. Visit the dentist every 6 months if your gum is healthy. If you never visit a dentist yet, here are some signs you can tell that you need to see a dentist:
1. Your gums bleed when brushing or flossing.
2. Bad breath.
3. Gum swolen.
4. Discoloration of your gum.
5. Your gum or teeth hurts.
FLOSS FIGHTS CANCER
Dental floss is definite MacGyver material. This is unusual use #46: Floss can help you escape stomach cancer. New York University researchers found that people with precancerous gastric lesions were nearly three times as likely to report that they flossed infrequently as people who didn't have the lesions. Study author Yu Chen, Ph.D.M.P.H., explains that if you don't maintain good oral hygiene, bacteria may build up in your mouth and eventually migrate to your stomach. Where they can trigger cancer- causing inflammation.
Bad teeth can also lead you to heart diseases.
TIPS FOR STARTING YOUR GOOD HABIT: Buy several dental flosses. Keep one in your pocket, one in your vehicle, one at your job, and one near your bed. Floss your teeth whenever you can. I flossed about 2 times a day or whenever I think I needed it. The first few times seemed hard for you,however, after 12 weeks, your body clock will automatic make you floss your teeth.
FEW EXTRA POUNDS IS BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH
A new study published by our Government suggested that if you're 30 pounds or less over weight, you're more likely to live longer than a perfect weight individual. 60 pounds or more will shorten your life span. The new study found that when you're a little bit over weight is good for you when it come to surgery or sustaining tests for diseases- like cancer. A chubby person has more to burn, therefore, he'll have a better chance to survive a chemo therapy and such. Where as, a perfect weight person will be least likely to survive an accident, major surgery, or treatments. A chubby person will have stronger bones as well because the extra meats will support your bones better. However, many health experts are still sticking up toward a well balance body because according to many studies in the past had shown that obesity did brought in a lot of health risks including early death.
NEW YEAR BETTER YOU

How I Strengthen My Heart
Aerobic exercise is key: In the summer time, I spent a lot of times at the beach walking and playing soccer with strangers. In the gym, I usually walking on the treadmill 15 minutes before my weight training and 15 minutes after my weight training. On my aerobic day, I have my little routine including jumping, kicking, stationary bike, or join the body pumping aerobic class. Because of my heart disease, I can't do everything like you can. Other things you can do: Swiming, running, fast biking, jump rope, rowing, martial arts, and cross fit training.
How To Help Ease Depression
Cardiovascular disease is the number one problem we have in the West. The number two problem in the West is depression. Depression is a crushed spirit.
Depression is caused by an imbalance of neuro transmitters in the brain. This can influence a person's mood. It is widely believed depression probably result from a combination of genetic, medical, environmental, and phychological factors. Research suggest environmental, and genetic factors, such as family history of depression, may make a person more likely to develop this order.
1. See your doctor. Take Viibryd as directed.
2. Follow up. Make appointment with your doctor to discuss about your treatment.

HOW I BEAT FATIGUE
For me, stop working 20 hours a day helped me a lot. My best trick for fatigue is taking short naps. For a small sleep dept, doze, but not longer than 30 minutes; otherwise you can enter a deep- sleep phase and wake up groggy. If you're seriously sleep deprived, skip the nap and go to bed a couple of hours earlier than usual. Your waking time should stay constant.
Whey Protein Caused Constipation
Recently, I have heard some people are complaining about suffering constipation while taking whey protein. I am taking whey protein too, however, I'm not suffering from constipation. The main reason for constipation is because your diet is lacking of vegetables and fiber.
1.DO NOT buy cheap whey products from China.
2.Eat plenty of fibers. If you're too busy, just eat one serving of cereal for breakfast is good enough.
3.Eat vegetables, fruits, and drink a lot of water.
4.Mix your whey protein with fruits and yogert.
5.Limit your whey protein to one scoop per day.
If you're still having constipation, you may want to return your whey protein. Most health food stores will refund your money back in full or they will replace it with another brand name.
Every 19 minutes, one person died from over dose on legal drugs.
How To Relieve Acid Reflux
When most of us reached 40, if all along we didn't careful of what we ate, how we ate, and how much we ate, chances are, our stomachs are half shot and suffering from all kinds of pains and discomforts. Most commonly, acid reflux. Here are a few steps you can help yourself to feel better.
1. Stop eating foods that will trigger acid reflux. Some of these foods are breads, crackers, pasta, rice, spicy foods, sodas, cheese, and fried foods.
2. Don't over eat.
3. Don't lay down after you finished eating.
4. Walking after eating. (15-30minutes).
5. Stop drinking alcohol.
6. Do eat a lot of vegetables and fiber.
7. Make sure to have regular bowel movement (once or twice a day).
If you must eat foods in (number 1), eat early, at least before 5:00pm. Your stomach will digest the foods that you ate every 4 hours if your digestive system is healthy. By finishing your solid foods at 5:00pm, you can go to bed with a more relax stomach. I'm not saying you couldn't have anything at all before bed time. I drink protein drink, eating fruits that will aid my digestive system such as papaya, pine apple, strawberry, banana, grape, peach, grape fruit, or just snacking on nuts and popcorn.
After a few months or a year, you can go back and eat all of your favorite foods again. However, listen to your body, if a certain foods still give you acid reflux, cut it off completely. These are the 7 most dangerous foods for your stomach and speeding up your aging: Soy, Peanut, Sugar, Corn, Egg, Dairy, and Gluten. The key to stay healthy, slim, young, and strong is to eat healthy. Allow your last meal to digest before eating again. Because if you eat too soon (less than 3 hours apart), the chemical from undigested foods from your last meal and the new foods will have conflict with each other and at the end, you'll be the one who will suffer from the ordeal.
How To Prevent Hypertension
America's blood pressure is way too high, nearly one in four men between the ages of 35 and 44 have hypertension. Here is how you can cut your hypertension risk 66% by adopting these four behaviors.
1. Drinking less than 2 ounces of alcohol per week.
2. Eating vegetables everyday.
3. Working out at least three times per week.
4. Maintaining a healthy body weight.

How Long Should I Rest Between Set?
If you rest too long, your muscles won't tire enough to stimulate grow. If you rest too little, they'll be too fatique.
BURN FAT Rest 30 seconds between sets of 12 plus reps. By taking shorter rest times, your heart rate stays in overdrive, cranking your metabolism, and melting more fat.
BUILD MUSCLE Rest 1 to 2 minutes. This lets you pump out multiple burn- inducing sets of 8 to 10 reps with heavy weight. You're balancing between exhausting the muscle and resting long enough to recover.
INCREASE STRENGTH Rest 2 to 5 minutes. To build strength, you must go all out every lift for sets of 3 to 5 reps. That requires using near maximum weight, which results the most muscle fibers. They use more energy to contract and need more time to recover.
Shorter, Harder Workerouts May Be Better
The success of your workout may not be about calories burned, but intensity and duration. A study in the International Journal of Epidemiology found that those who did 75 minutes of vigorous exercise weekly had a 66% fewer chance of developing metabolic syndrome than those who did 150 minutes of moderate exercise. (This was regardless of calories burned.) Metabolic syndrome is a nasty condition that leads to diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and heart increased risk of stroke and heart disease.

Men Equate Red with Sex
A new study from the University of South Brittany in France says when it comes to women, men equate the color red with bed. The study found men believe women in red outfits are more likely to be willing to have sex. 120 college -aged males were shown pictures of women in different colored t-shirts, and researchers also found women in red were also found more attractive than those in white, blue or green.
COOKED TO DEATH
Don't burn that burger. A study in PLoS One reports that eating well- done ground beef may raise your risk of developing prostate cancer. The researchers noted a 50% higher risk among consumers of well- done beef than among people who ate rare to medium beef. Cooking meat "well" can create chemical compounds that have been linked to cancer, according to the study's lead author, John Witte, Ph. D., a professor at the University of California at San Francisco.
I think eating any burn foods will cause some kind of cancer, not necessary prostate cancer.

SHOULD WOMEN TRAIN LIKE MEN?
No question, women can get buff and ripped, but what the truth behind those muscles? Is bodybuilding different for women than for men?
Let's start with the basics of human physiology. Men produce more testosterone- the hormone that plays a dominant role in muscle growth (called hypertrophy)- than women. Men produce on average 5-10 mg per day, while women produce about 0.1 mg daily. A second consideration is muscle distribution: Women naturally have smaller muscles in their upper bodies. The good news, however, is that although women typically have two- thirds the upper- body strength of men, they're equal in lower- body strength (as measured pound for pound of lean body mass). And women can make improvements in size and strength at the same percentages as men.
What about the training regimen? " In terms of program design and intensity, women and men should train identically," says Harvey Newton of the Colorado Springs, Colorado- based National Strength and Conditioning Association. Muscles are made up of the same stuff in both genders and therefore will respond the same way to the same demands placed on them. Lift hard and heavy, get bigger and stronger. Still, despite this type of training, the average woman won't hypertrophy to the same degree as a man. "There are exceptions, of course," says Newton. "A genetically gifted woman and one who is hormonally enhanced."
Women who want to build their muscles have to train hard and eat the right kinds of foods. That doesn't sound any different from the way serious male bodybuilders who are after the same results train. But, women who have higher levels of bodyfat on average, have to work harder to attain relatively similar degrees of muscularity and definition. That's just the way Mother Nature divided the hormones.
By Michelle Basta Boubion, CPT
Bodybuilding is actually one of the safest activities, according to the people who keep such statistics. Still, a few precautions can save you from an injury- free and avoid being red-faced:
-Warm up for 5-10 minutes before you start lifting.
-Know what you're doing; use a trainer or a spotter if you aren't sure.
-Use collars on barbells so the plates don't fall off.
-Stay in control when you lift. Don't heave the weights using lots of momentum or body english.
-Keep your mind on what you're doing.
- Make adjustments on machines before you lift. Some require several modifications based on body size and personal preferences.
-Wear appropriate clothing, including shoes. Ever see a guy in sandals with a broken toe from dropped dumbbell? We have.
-Follow gym rules.
BABY ASPIRIN AND YOUR HEART
New study found that taking one a day baby aspirin may not be good for you. Unless you're already have heart problems or have had heart attack, then, you should take aspirin as directed by your doctor. Aspirins can cause internal bleeding. If your heart is healthy, you don't have to make your body to suffer unnecessary bleedings, especially your stomach or ulcers.
GREEN MEANS LEAN
Adding food to your meal can actually save you calories, according to Penn State University researchers. In the study, people who added a salad to their entree consumed 11% fewer calories than when they ate no greens with their meal. The reason: Eating a salad increases your satiety levels without packing on calories, say the scientists.

THE FIVE GOLDEN RULES FOR GETTING BIG AND MANLY
This doesn't mean you should give yourself aneurysms lifting extreme loads on each set, but you also won't spend much time hoisting light weight for high reps. Research shows that when subjects trained using their 10-rep max (10RM), they experienced a 10% increase in testosterone levels. Yet when they trained with just 70% of their 10RMs - or 40% done with fast and explosive reps- they experienced little or no change in T levels.
Train Multiple Muscle Groups In Each Workout
This rational is based on a study by Danish researchers that found when guys did a biceps-only workout, their testosterone levels didn't budge. When they trained legs and biceps, however, their T levels shot up about 40%.
If the muscle groups are small, such as biceps and triceps, you'll need to add another bodypart to get the testosterone boost. Legs, on the other hand, are such a large group that you could train them alone and still benefit from elevated test levels.
Work Multijoint Exercises Into Your Workouts
Using multijoint moves is a simple way to target different muscle groups. This approach keeps you in check with Rule No.2, and since multijoint moves allow you to move heavier weight, you'll also be following Rule No.1.
Pump Up The Volume
New Zealand reasearchers had trained men follow three different squat workouts: 10 sets of 10 reps using 75% 1RM (100 reps total), six sets of four reps using about 90% 1RM (24 reps total), and eight sets of six reps using 45% 1RM (48 reps total).
The scientists found that testosterone levels increased by about 90% in subjects who did the first workout, but saw very little or no change in those doing the other two routines. They suggested that training volume is the key in boosting T since neither the 24- nor the 48-rep workout produced much testosterone.
If you sit around yapping with your gym buddies between sets, your test levels may suffer along with your muscle growth. Resaerch shows that testosterone levels rose when subjects rested one minute between sets, but the longer they rested after that, the lower the T sank. Keep rest between sets to about a minute- that should give you enough time to recover so you can train heavy and intensely without compromising your testosterone levels. (since I have a heart disease, I kept my rest time to about 2 minutes. If you lift extremely heavy, rest 5 minutes or until you recovered).
EXTRA RULE (My Rule)
If at the end of your routine exercise doesn't produce a sweat on you, you didn't do enough.

Scientists say that by the year 2020, the obesity epidemic will be a far more dire situation than it is today.
83% of men and 72% of women will be over weight or obese, a jump of 11% for men and 9% for women over the next 8 years.
77% of men and 53% of women will be diabetic or prediabetic. This represents a jump of 14% for men and 10% for women.

5 WAYS TO SAVE YOUR OWN LIFE
1.Two tests you need to take to find out if you're okay or not. CHOLESTEROL & BLOOD PRESSURE MEASUREMENT.
Cholesterol Check: How often? At least every five years, more frequently if you're over 50 (45 for men) or have any heart risk factors like a family history of the heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, being over weight, or smoking. I was born with a heart disease. I've been exposed to second hand smoke. And had family history of heart diseases (although died at 82- 90yrs old), so, I requested for these two tests as often as once a year or once in every two years, depending on how I feel as well.
Blood Pressure Measurement: How often? At least every two years, and more often if your blood pressure goes above 120/ 80.
2. Enjoy Life
If you're not happy with your job, family, sex life, or self, it can make your heart hurt. So, find ways to boost yourself out of the blaz zone. Try to be more positive and laugh more.
3.Let greens and vegetables out smart your genes
Whether good or bad, you can't change the DNA your parents passed on to you, but it turns out you can keep some dangerous genes from undermining your heart health. Eat more greens and vegetables.
4. Get more sleep
Take more times for yourself. Rest more and sleep more (at least 7- 9 hours per night) .
Us Americans are too busy and too often, we forgot to take good care of ourselves.
5. Stop drinking soda
Sugary drinks aren't on anyone's good- health list, but in data reported last November, researchers noted that sweet sodas are particularly risky for women. Sweet sodas are the cause of weight gain, high triglycerides, and pancrease cancer. Nothing is better than cold water for me. I quit drinking sodas nearly 5 years now. I only drink cold water and some healthy juices.
ZINC FIGHTS COLDS
A new study confirms that zinc can, indeed, help reduce the severity and duration of the common cold, and high doses- at least 75 milligrams per day- work best. Depending upon the total dosage and composition of the lozenges, zinc may shorten the duration of a common cold episode by up to 40 percent, according to University of Helsinki research.

New study shows olive oil and nuts work better than a low- fat diet.
Diets high in monounsaturated fats got a powerful new endorsement in a study published by Spanish researchers. Study authors showed that olive oil and certain nuts work better than a low-fat diet to reduce the risk of heart disease. Try replacing saturated fats like butter with olive oil- and reach for almonds, hazel nuts, and walnuts (all used in this study) as a snack or salad topper.
Milk Does Your Body Good
A recent study found that skim milk is the ideal way to replenish active kids due to its high concentration of protein, carbs, and calcium. Adults can reap the same benefits. For an extra shot of postworkout carbs, reach for chocolate milk.
Just 40 minutes of exercise performed three times a week is enough to take the place of medication for migraine sufferers, according to a new study.

For Nutritional Punch, You Can't Beat Plant- Based Foods
Still, 90 percent of Americans eat too few fruits and veggies, health experts say.
U.S. government health experts now encourage Americans to fill half their plates with fruits and vegetables. Weight Watchers new system assigns no points to nearly all fruits and vegetables, making them a truely "guilt- free" option.
But, really, what's the big deal? why is it so important to eat more veggies and fruits?
Nutritionists can rattle off a long list of reasons when asked that question. Vegetables and fruits are dense in nutrients but light on calories. They contain rich amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Eating more veggies and fruits has been linked to decreased risk for such health problems as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer.
10 COMMANDMENTS FOR GAINING MASS
1. Never skip breakfast.
2. Eat more calories than you burn. About 500 extra calories per day will provide for added mass.
3. Eat often, 5-6 times a day or more.
4. Eat smaller meals and larger snacks.
5. Get a minimum of eight hours of sleep each night.
6. For weight training, focus on compound movements and limit cardiovascular work to the minimum required for good health( about 30 minutes, 3 times a week).
7. Consider drinking some of your calories in concentrated form in nutrition shakes and juices, or try a high- quality weight-gain drink mix. You can mix this powder with the milk you normally drink- or separately, between or after meals.
8. Get plenty of protein, up to 1 gram per pound of bodyweight each day.
9. Consume 40-60 grams of carbohydrate and 20-30 grams of protein immediately after your workout. Energy/sports drinks are an excellent and convenient way to deliver these nutritions.
10. Get in the habit of eating small, nutritious bedtime snacks.

FACTS ABOUT OBESITY
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and or increased health problems. Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseaes, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties during sleep, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive dietary calories, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications or psychiatric illness.(Of course, there are millions of excuses to why they are obese).
Dieting and physical exercise are the mainstays of treatment for obesity. Moreover, it is important to improve diet quality by reducing the consumption of energy-dense foods such as those high in fat and sugars, by increasing the intake of dietary fiber.
Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide , with increasing prevalence in adult and children, and authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century. In USA, one in three people is fat and one in five people is obese. There are only 5% of U.S. citizens are going to the gym. In Canada, only 2% of their population are going to the gym. While other countries are starving to death, we are eating ourselves to death. Obesity is stigmatized in much of the modern world (particularly in the Western World). Obesity is estimated to cause an excess 111,909 to 365,000 deaths per year. Severe obesity reduces life expectancy by 10 years.
The Power Of Exercise
Why do we need to exercise? Because we need to fight diseases, strengthen your immune system, making your bones stronger, improve your mood, improve your look, stronger body, stronger heart, healthier body, help prevent alzheimer, and stay younger. What will happen if we don't exercise? We might get fat, have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, prone to stroke, heart attack, heart diseases, cancers, diabetes, sudden death, and a lot more diseases. Are there any good excuse to skip the active life style? None. Everyone can benefit from exercise.(New study found that exercise alone will reduce the risk of breast cancer by 64%). Another new study just came out with the conclusion that exercising can help prevent Alzheimer. Folks, being healthy is the best insurance you can award your body. When you're not sick, you can save money, save times, and you can be happy. You can have everything in the world, if your body becomes unhealthy, then you'll feel you have nothing! Believe me, I have been living with my bad heart for many years, I can share your pains. Get fit today, your body will thank you.

Drugs might not be the answer to high blood pressure. According to a study in the journal Phytomedicine, olive leaf extract is as effective at lowering blood pressure as some hypertension medications. Researchers observed a significant drop in blood pressure in patients taking either a 12.5 mg twice-daily dose of Captopril- a blood pressure drug- or a 500mg twice- daily dose of olive leaf extract. Both groups experienced a similar drop, but olive leaf extract had the added benefit of lowering triglyceride levels.

SIX FUN WAYS TO HELP YOUR HEART
Sex works. So does chocolate. And music. Who said watching your BP had to suck? A healthy dose of the right kind of chocolate can help relax your blood vessels.
America's blood pressure is way too high, in fact, nearly one in four men between the ages of 35 and 44 have hypertension, as well as 12% of men between 20 and 34, according to the American Heart Asociation. It's so bad that the Institude of Medicine is urging the government to start trying to shake salt out of our diet, since too much of this key taste enhancer can cause you to retain water in your blood, which adds volume and boosts blood pressure. This, in turn, exposes you to a great risk of heart attack, stroke, and even erectile dysfunction. But sodium isn't the only culprit. Smoking, excessive drinking, inactivity, and bad food choices can also make your arteries burst at the seams. Worse, you may never know what hit you. "Many men don't pay attention to their blood pressure until they're older," says nephrologist George Bakris, M.D., president of the American Society of Hypertension. "But you don't experience symptoms until it's very high."

Powerful legs are built with iron. Running isn't enough.
Few men are blessed with Herculean legs. Most of us need to build a set of wheels worthy of awe. But don't think a treadmill can take you there, because no amount or type of running can replace strength training for building bigger, stronger legs. Danish researchers who compared lower body resistance training with high-intensity intervals and steady- state cardiovascular exercise found that people who hit the iron were the only ones to gain size and strength."Running-even at taxing intensities doesn't recruit enough muscle fibers to promote new growth," says study author Lars Nybo, D.Sc.

During summer time, I often met men who came into the gym and work out right before going to the beach. Hoping to look buff for all the hotty women on the sand and blue water. What those men didn't know is that working out before going to the beach will only get you sore and uncomfortable at the beach. Another secret that they also didn't know is that it will take a whole year for them to look buff or different from how they look a few hours ago. By eating and training smart, you will build size and strength especially during your first year of training. Several factors influence how fast you'll put on a muscle. A number of them are related to genetics, factors that are out of your control. Also depend on your bone structure, age, and gender.

TRAIN EARLY SLEEP BETTER
Awhile back, a few people asked me what time of the day is best to exercise. Here is the professional answer. You may find it difficult to lift early before work, but a new study from Appalachian State University shows that training in the morning is best for your sleep cycle. Subjects who exercised in the morning spent 85% more time in light sleep and 75% more time in deep sleep over subjects who trained in the evening. Once you get into the habit of hitting the gym early, you'll be happy you did.
STRETCHING: More Truth
In the past, stretching was thought to inhabit muscle spasm. "Static stretching doesn't prevent muscle soreness", said study author Robert Herbert. Now scientists think soreness is probably due to muscle damage. A better way to beat this pain is to gradually increase the intensity of any new exercise over a few sessions so your body has time to adjust. Source: Men'sHealth
THE IMPORTANT OF GETTING A GOOD SLEEP
People who get enough sleep( about 7- 9 hours a night) are more likely to have productivity, feel more energetic through out the day, and experience less stress. Sleep is crucial for concentration, memory formation, and repairing and rejuvenating the cells of the body. Both mentally and physically, a good night's sleep is essential for your health and your energy. Many car accidents are caused by not enough sleep.
Experts estimate that more than 70 million Americans have persistant trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. If you're one of the millions of people who suffer, you know how fustrating it can be to lie awake in bed at night, tossing and turning.
In contrast, many sleep aid supplements are safe, natural, and quickly gaining popularity. They typically contain melatonin, a naturally occuring compound that regulates sleeping cycles and also has value as a possible antioxidant. The top pick for sleep supplements is Somnapure, a new product from Peak Life scientists. Somnapure's superior formula contains herbal ingredients such as chanomile and pasion flower, which have a calming effect on the body, in addition to melatonin. This supplement is gentle but effective, it help you get back into a healthy sleeping routine.
For me, I try to stay away from drugs, caffeine, and things that keep me awake. I drink instant coffee occasionally, but not everyday. I try to exercise or work hard during the day to make my body tire, that way I have no problem falling asleep. Try not to worry or thinking too much about issues that can not be solve or you have no control of. Foods can be the cause of sleeping problems too. Try to eat one and a half hours or two hours before going to bed. This method can also fix acid reflux, nightmares, and weight gain. Don't go to sleep hungry either, your body will stay awake until it is fed.
