People who are highly productive in their day to day activities have specific eating habits that are not so common with the rest of the masses. They appreciate the fact that dieting is an integral part of the whole body and soul and stop at nothing in ensuring they do whatever they can to make this a reality. These are some of their approaches to eating that makes them different:
- This means they eat a balanced diet in small portions between regular intervals. They avoid junk food at all cost and are creative in playing around with different but healthy dietary options. The result is always healthy living and a strong looking physique.
- They drink adequate amounts of water between meals to aid in digestion and avoid dehydration. Drinking water (moderately), is healthy as water is a natural solvent for the body. It also helps in moisturizing the body and also in smoothing the human waste hence easy defecation.
Do not overeat
- Overeating is simply eating more than enough. There are people who lately refer to themselves as “foodies”. These are people who eat just about everything so long as it is available. This is completely unhealthy and it has a negative impact on a person’s overall health.
Whole-grains and Fiber
Whole grains and fiber rich foods are an important part of any food portion that can qualify as healthy. These help in the general processes of the digestive systems right from when one bites a food portion to when the waste product is released via the rear part of the digestive system. For this reason, productive people take seriously the role of whole grain and fiber in their diet.
Reproductive health is one of the major areas of recreation that is very vital for continued sustainability of the human race. Without it, the world would probably not be filled with human life. It is therefore important that special attention is given to this as is any other area of human health. Below are ways in which reproductive health especially among women could be enhanced:
Eat Fruits and Vegetables
Regular intake of fruits and vegetable improves a person’s health as these foods are rich in vitamins which help in fighting illnesses within the body. A body without sickness is healthy and this extends to the reproductive health of the individual. Fruits are readily available and they are also relatively affordable. There is therefore no excuse in failing to make them an integral part of a dietary regime. Generally, fruits are rich in vitamins. However, in some cases, the nutritional value varies from one species of fruit to another and this can be taken advantage of, in order for an individual to experience a high quality life.
Reduce or Stop Alcohol Intake
- Alcohol obviously has more negative effects on the body than it has positive ones, that is, if any. For enhanced reproductive health especially among the female species of the human family, it is advisable that they stay away from alcohol and alcohol related products.
- As it is already clear, alcohol consumption is quite addictive and what might start as a little sip could easily degenerate into an addictive affair which has disastrous negative effects on health.
Do Not SMOKE!
- Like alcoholism and drinking, smoking of both tobacco or marijuana or any other form of substance abuse should be avoided by all means. Tobacco has nicotine that affects the lungs and effectively the breathing and circulation of oxygen in the body. This in turn adversely affects other body organs and the general functionality of a biological system. Reproductive system is one of the victims of this vice.
This post looks at some of the common myths and beliefs that are prevalent in the medical sphere. Some are hilarious and others are creations of utter lies meant to serve a purpose or the other. Have a look at these:
Punishment From the gods
- Some people believe that some sicknesses are punishments from the gods for doing something evil or disobeying religious teachings. This is quite common in terminal illnesses or complicated sicknesses. Examples are HIV/AIDS and Cancer. The truth is, there are different causes of illness and this has nothing to do with the gods being angry or something like that.
Cold Weather Makes One Sick
- If this were true, would we be having any human life in the tropics or Antarctica? What of North America and parts of Europe? This is a myth that somehow, many people believe in. Cold weather is as a result of a change in climatic conditions and is not meant to cause havoc in terms of bringing sicknesses with it. As already notes, there are disease carrying vectors which should be the main focus and not the weather as it has nothing to so with someone’s health.
Sitting Close to a TV Set Ruins Eyesight
- The eye has been designed in such a way that it self regulates the amount of light that enters and leaves it in terms of visuals. Sitting close to a TV set, a computer system or any other light variation does not necessarily destroy eyesight. This is just a myth that is meant to scare may be school going children to choose homework over watching television for example.
Drink at least 8 Glasses of Water Daily
- First of all, why 8 glasses? Why not 6m or 6 or even 20? What is the rationale behind this static figure? We all agree that water is an integral part of the human life and without it, there is virtually no life. However, whoever came up with the theory that daily, one has to drink 8 glasses (what size of glasses by the way) of water must have been out to some sort of personal gain. Come to think of it, a lot of people do not subscribe to this idea but they seem to lead a near perfect life! This is simply what it is….a myth!

Fitness for Dummies
Originally written in Thai, the book is for beginners in the fitness journey. It explores the whole process from highlighting the importance of one getting out of their comfort zone to beginning the physical regime with simple exercises as they get better at it with time. It also highlights the fitness of the heart and its importance to the general well-being of the whole body.
The process of the flow of blood in the body and its coordination with the central nervous system is generally referred to as the Cardiovascular System. Therefore, cardiovascular fitness is the smooth flow of blood within the body. Such physical exercises involve the movement of the members of the body without necessarily moving the body. In short, they don’t involve running. See examples below:
- This is as simple as it gets. It involves rotating a piece of sizable rope or string along the frame of the body as one jumps over it. With good shoes that can have better grip on the ground or slippery surface and armed with a strong yet light rope and a spacious room or outdoor area, one is good to go. There are different variations that can be put into it and this has been proven to be one way of burning fat and calories and maintaining a healthy blood flow.
Just like Rope Jumping, mountain climbers are very easy. One leans all the way down from the front and touches down with their palm. They then move their feet in succession as if climbing a gradual slope. Intensity of the feet movement can be increased and varied to increase the flow of the blood through the heart.
One squats on a flat surface and jumps while rooted at the same place. They then can try moving around adding in a little variation by playing around with the position of the arms within the squats. This should however be done in short time intervals as its intensity is usually very high given that the whole body weight is concentrated in one place.
This can be looked at as a slight variation to push ups. One leans forward all the way down with the arms down and suspending the middle body between the arms and toes. They then can do regular squats on a flat surface or “walk” as it were with the arms while getting back up like a bear. It is a good physical exercise that enhances smooth and regular blood flow to the upper body.
