Dieting Dos and Don’ts

Dieting Dos and Don’ts

diet-861173_960_720Image Source

For those wanting to shed the pounds, there’s an array of dieting methods out there. You don’t have to diet one particular way, however there are some dieting dos and don’ts that could help you to stay on track with whatever method you do choose.

Don’t starve yourself

Any dieting method that tells you to starve yourself to lose weight should be avoided. Whilst you should lower your calorie intake, cutting out food altogether could cause more harm that it does good. Starving yourself causes your body to go into survival mode, shutting down functions to other organs and processes that aren’t as important. Your body also limits the amount of energy you spend to keep other functions going, making you lose weight slower as burning off fat is not top of priorities.

Do cut out processed foods

The less processes food has to go through, the healthier it is for you. This means swapping sugary sweets for fruit and white bread for natural carbs such as potatoes. Try to rely less on microwave meals and foods straight out the packet and try making your own meals from raw ingredients.

Don’t rely solely on pills

There are lots of weight loss pills out there, but these should never be used by themselves. If you’re taking weight loss pills and still eating unhealthily as well as not exercising, you’re not going to make any progress.

Do consider supplements

That said, there’s nothing to stop you taking supplements on top of dieting and exercise to help lose a few more pounds. As you can see here, such supplements have a proven track record and have to pass testing and regulations in order to be allowed on the market. You can find all kinds of supplements online and at your local pharmacy.

Don’t think short term

Weight loss should never be a short term goal. You may well lose your target weight, but are likely to slip back into your old ways straight away and piles on the pounds again. Consider lifestyle changes that you can permanently adopt to ensure that you stay healthy. You may be able to drop a few rules once you’ve reached your target weight, but don’t expect to just take up you old lifestyle once you’ve got slim.

Do treat yourself

Getting rid of all those tasty comfort foods you once adored is hard. Cutting them all out permanently takes a lot of willpower – you’re likely to get demotivated very quickly. Instead use these foods as incentives and rewards. If you manage to go your whole week sticking religiously to your diet, reward yourself with a food you once loved for one day only.  However, if you break your diet and indulge on this treat when you’re not supposed to, punish yourself by not allowing yourself to eat a treat at the end of that week. This will spur you on to not abandon hope.

Tips on How to Fight the Plights of Old Age

Tips on How to Fight the Plights of Old Age

If you don’t want to ‘grow old gracefully’, and you want to fight the impact ageing has on you, then you have every right to do so. If you want to fight the plights induced by old age, then you do so. Whether this means doing all you can to fight the appearance of ageing. Or whether it means doing all you can to fight the ailments of ageing. You do it. And if you choose to do it, make sure to check out some tips on how to do so below.

First of all you should know that you can be as beautiful as you are wise when you grow old, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing this. You can fight the impact ageing has on your skin in the form of wrinkles, and there are now more ways to do this than ever before. You can do so by making changes to your lifestyle. And one change you can make is to simply ensure that you always get a healthy amount of sleep, and that you always sleep on your back. This is because sleeping on your front or your side can etch lines into your face, and when these lines get etched in enough they will be tough to get rid of. Another change you can make to your lifestyle in order to fight the plight of wrinkles is to stop smoking. But you don’t just have to make changes to your lifestyle as you take this venture. No, you could seek a BOTOX injection in order to fight wrinkles too. Whichever route you choose, just be sure that there is nothing wrong in wanting to tackle wrinkles and there’s nothing wrong with actively tackling them. They are one of the biggest tell-tale signs of ageing, so there is nothing wrong with them being the first plight of old age that you seek to fight.

But it’s not just about fight the appearance of ageing. It’s also about fighting the plights of old age that physically hold you back from living. And one thing that can hold you back during your twilight years is bad eye health. Ageing can have a detrimental impact on eyesight, and you shouldn’t allow for your eyesight to be changed in this way. A way to do this is to make changes to your diet. By opting for cereals that are ravished in whole grain. By choosing foods that are a good source of protein. And by cooking in a way that makes any fats you consume as healthy as can be. By implementing these three aspects into your diet, you will be doing all you can to fight the plight of old age that is bad eye health.

Now, this is not to say that you have to fight these plights of old age. It’s just to say that you should fight them if they ever make you feel uncomfortable. Neither is it a case of ‘growing old disgracefully’. It’s a case of wanting to look and feel as great as you can, for as long as you can.

Hiking Tips for Beginners

By  Guest Blogger Scott M.

Hiking Tips for Beginners

Introduction

The fresh air, the cool breeze during a hot summer day, and a shady spot to watch the sun´s shadows dance in the valley below you: this is what most of us dream about when we imagine a day of hiking through Nature. However, without the right preparation, your hiking trip might be better defined by swollen knees, clouds of mosquitoes, and soggy hiking boots.

For those people who are new to the world of hiking, it is important to understand that enjoying a quality hike takes much more preparation than simply lacing up the old hiking boots and driving to the nearest trailhead. Below you´ll find four simple tips to help you find ways to motivate yourself to get into the wilderness and enjoy a perfect hike.

Why Should You Hike?

https://www.pexels.com/photo/people-walking-on-dirt-path-in-forest-at-daytime-200453/

Everyone knows that our bodies need exercise. The sedentary lives that we live have led to several dangerous health conditions ranging from obesity to diabetes. Hiking offers an opportunity not only to exercise, but also to enjoy moments of physical exertion. Recent evidence has shown that people find exercise while being in Nature as more enjoyable and less physically draining.

In addition, taking regular hikes offers an opportunity to reduce your stress levels and improve your overall mental health. When you go to the gym for a quick workout, chances are that you´re carrying a load of problems with you as you simply try to make it to your goal on the treadmill. When you´re hiking through the woods, however, it´s much easier to allow your problems to temporarily disappear as you regain perspective of the most important things of life.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, hiking allows us to regain contact with the natural world of which we are a part. In our industrial and consumer culture, meaningful contact with Nature has become a rarity at best. Our lives are lived within the confines of manufactured housing, cement streets, and air conditioned offices. Escaping from these man-made environments for a short hike into the wilderness allows us to rediscover our ultimate belonging to the natural world which holds us.

Four Tips to Motivate You to Get Off the Couch and Into the Wild

If you are ready to start enjoying the benefits of hiking, it is important to plan ahead. One disastrous hiking trip can turn you off to hiking for years to come. Just as you wouldn’t try to scale Everest on your first outdoors trip, so should you also take the necessary time to ease yourself into the world of hiking so that it becomes an enjoyable, lifelong pursuit.

Start Slow

This first bit of advice, should be common sense. If you aren´t a proficient hiker, don’t try to complete a 20 mile day hike on your first go. Even for people who are in fairly decent shape, a 3 to 4 mile round trip hike will make you feel the physical exertion. Also, be sure to trust the trail ratings that describe a particular hike. If the hike is listed as strenuous, you might want to opt for a shorter “moderate” hike or a slightly longer hike that has been rated as “easy.”

Find a Place that You´ll Love

https://www.pexels.com/photo/person-wearing-a-blue-and-white-jacket-and-brown-backpack-standing-on-mountains-62485/

If you hate the heat and the burning sun, your first hike probably shouldn’t be in Death Valley National Park. Similarly, if you dislike the wind and cold, you should probably avoid trying to hike to some bald knob or mountain top. Think about what type of natural environment you most enjoy, and search for a hike that will take you through that natural setting. This will make your initial experience with hiking enjoyable and gratifying.

Couple Hiking with Some Other Activity You Love

One of the best parts of hiking is that you can combine a hike with some other activity that you enjoy. If, for example, you enjoy photography, there is no better place to practice your photography skills than while hiking through some beautiful, natural area. If you enjoy writing poetry, take a pen and paper along with you in your backpack and hike until you find the perfect spot to give you the inspiration you need.

Don´t Go Alone

While the ability to find deep peace and solace while hiking alone through the woods is definitely one of the privileges of hiking, you should probably invite other people along during your first couple of hikes. Having other people near you can help to alleviate some of the potential drawbacks and difficulties that a hiking trip might unexpectedly bring. Save the solo trips for when you feel more comfortable and proficient with hiking.

The Transformation that Hiking Will Bring into Your Life

https://www.pexels.com/photo/rear-view-of-a-man-standing-in-snow-250164/

After a couple positive hiking trips, you most likely will begin to feel healthier, more relaxed, and more centered on the important things in life. You will also find that every weekend you´ll be searching for new places to explore and discover.

5 Things That Shouldn’t Stand in the Way of You Staying Healthy

5 Things That Shouldn’t Stand in the Way of You Staying Healthy

When you’re trying to stay healthy or improve your fitness, there are always obstacles in the way trying to trip you up. That’s just the way it is. But it’s up to you to overcome these problems and do your very best to go further and achieve more with your health and fitness. It might not be easy, but it can be done. Here are 5 things that you shouldn’t let stand in your way as you try to stay healthy.

  1. Lack of Motivation

Motivation is key when it comes to staying active and making the right diet choices. If you are not motivated throughout the journey, you will eventually give up and go back to your bad ways. That’s not what you want to happen, and it’s that kind of action that could damage you in the long-term. So, find a source of motivation. This can change when necessary, but make sure there is always something driving you forward. That way, you’ll stay on the right path.

  1. Bad Excuses

We’ve all made bad excuses for our failings and shortcomings before. It’s not something to be proud of, but we’ve all been guilty of it at one time or another. When we don’t want to do something, it’s very easy to rationalise this and find excuses that sort of fit. But that kind of action is not going to get you anywhere. Instead, you need to be more honest with yourself and stop coming up with ways to excuse your shortcomings.

  1. Recurrent Health Problems

There are some health problems that are linked to your diet and can flare up from time to time. Bowel problems and stomach problems are classic examples of this. Many people use these recurrent health problems as a reason not to stay healthy. But even on a constrained diet you can achieve a lot; you just need to get creative. You can also use things like over the counter ibs medication to treat any symptoms that might hold you back. This will help you stay on the right path.

  1. Work

For most people, work is the thing that takes up the bulk of their time. And that means that it is often the thing that stops them cooking healthy food or going for a job. That’s why you need to find new ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. You could choose to walk up the stairs more often rather than taking the elevator. Or you could prepare your own lunch rather than relying on fast food outlets. All of these things make a difference.

  1. The People Around You

Finally, you should think about the people around you. Are you going to let other people’s habits lead and influence your own? That shouldn’t happen. Just because other people are eating in a different way and have different lifestyles, that doesn’t mean that you have to follow their example. Never use other people as an excuse to let your own health and fitness slide. You will only regret it later if you allow this to happen.

Every tattoo has a story. Stories can be why you got the piece, who or what it represents or how you got the tattoo.

Some tattoos represent priceless memories created or getting inked up can be a priceless memory all in itself.

That’s all good, but don’t let it be a lesson after the fact.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/foot-on-grey-strap-sandals-48805/

Things you should know before permanently branding your body

First, it’s permanent.

Picking a tattoo should be something you can live with for the rest of your life.

Have you ever met someone with a tattoo they regret? It’s too common of a story.

Eric Amicone of Everlasting Tattoos in Philadelphia, recommends printing out a picture of what you think you want. Carry it in you pocket or wallet. Take a look at it daily. If you’re not sick of it in three months, then that’s your tattoo.

If it’s a symbol you want, double check the meaning for contradictions.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/grayscale-photo-of-tattoo-on-woman-s-back-201527/

If it’s words, triple check the spelling, remember, ‘No regerts’ should actually say, ‘No REGRETS’

When picking a tattoo parlor

Make sure the artist is state certified and has city credentials.

Check the internet for reviews.

The place should be clean.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s your body. You have the right to know.

Be polite. They are working hard to give you magnificent art that will last you a lifetime.

And a great tip, talented artists will take your idea and redraw it to make it personal for you. Use your voice to give your input. Building a relationship with your tattoo artist can be a great thing.

How Healthiness Leads To Happiness

How Healthiness Leads To Happiness

pexels-photo-113758Picture Source

Everybody wants to be happy, but it seems that so few of us figure out how to find that route to happiness. Life puts so much stress on our bodies and minds that it seems impossible to pull away from a negative and defeatist view of the world. Of course, it doesn’t need to be such a struggle. Your happiness is so dependent on both your physical and mental health that working harder to improve both of these things could be the key to finding some joy in your life. If you’re wondering how healthiness could lead to happiness then here are some things you could change in your life which might alter your perspective on life.

Diet.

The things you eat affect not only your body but the way you think. Treats shouldn’t be something that you entirely ban from your life, but you shouldn’t be indulging in excessive amounts of sugar every day. Sugar sneaks into so many of the foods we enjoy, and cutting back on it could be the difference you’ve been looking for in terms of not only shedding weight a little more quickly but avoiding those horrible crashes and low moments when you’ve not had your fix. Weaning yourself off the stuff will give both your body and your mind a little break, but you can still allow yourself the occasional slice of chocolate cake.

Sleep.

A healthy body will lead to a healthy mind. You should be allowing yourself time to recharge, given all the strain you put on yourself both on a physical and mental level during the average day. In the modern day, we all ask a lot of ourselves, and sleep often doesn’t fit into the busy schedules we set. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do, but that doesn’t mean your allocated time for rest should suffer.

You won’t function well on a mental level without sleep, and you’ll definitely start to notice physical deterioration if your sleeping pattern deteriorates. You could look into somtex sleep science if you’re wondering how a comfy mattress and bed contributes to better rest for your body and mind. If you’re finding that you’re slow during the day and there aren’t enough hours to do everything, maybe sleeping for more than seven hours a night will make you alert and productive whilst you’re awake; that could be your solution to getting more done on a daily basis.

Exercise.

Don’t groan. Exercise seems like a dull and strenuous chore from the outside, but that changes once you actually start doing more of it. Keeping active will help alleviate aches and pains you may feel on a daily basis, and cardio or strength training can do wonders for muscle mass and losing fat. Not only does this keep your heart healthy but exercise is a great way to keep the mind healthy. The physical stimulation can also lead to mental stimulation and reduce the effects of depression or anxiety.

The Best Natural Remedies For Clearer Skin

The Best Natural Remedies For Clearer Skin

9509632741_d8e4c32522_zImage Source

Everyone deals with problem skin at some point in their life – some longer than others – and finding the perfect remedy can be costly and time consuming. After a few weeks of using the cheap cleansers, you would spend more money trying to restore moisture to your skin. It was a never ending battle.

Thankfully, beautiful skin isn’t reserved for those blessed with good genes, or access to expensive facial treatments. You can treat your skin to a pampering facial using what you have in your kitchen cabinets. Let nature work its magic on your skin issues this weekend.

Lemon

The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion.

The method couldn’t be easier; simply apply fresh squeezed lemon juice to your face and neck, leave for ten minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. Next, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize. Do this once every other day. This is the best solution available until you can get a discount on a facial treatment mask with a bloomingdales coupon code.

Aloe vera

The worst-kept dermatological secret in the world is aloe vera; not only does it soothe sunburns, it can clear even the most stubborn acne. Aloe vera has antibacterial properties that help kill bacteria that cause acne, anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritated skin, and astringent properties that help heal scars. Plus, it moisturizes the skin and stimulates new skin cell growth.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a plant on hand, as aloe vera gel will work just as well. Several times a week, rub the gel onto your skin with a cotton ball, leave for a few minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. It may take a few weeks to see results, but in the meantime your skin will certainly feel softer.

Tea tree

Tea tree is often mentioned as a solution for stubborn acne and oily skin conditions. Tea tree essential oil acts like a solvent and cuts through dead skin cells to unblock pores. Its antibacterial properties also kill off the acne causing bacteria, and prevent further outbreaks. Make sure to dilute it before use (one part oil to nine parts water). First you should wash your face with warm water. Then, simply apply the tea tree solution to problem areas using a Q-tip. If you prefer, you can apply a light layer of moisturizer.

Water

One of the many benefits of water is that it can purify the impurities in your skin, get rid of dryness and wrinkles, and remove excess oils and dirt. Drinking at least 2 liters per day gives the skin a bright, noticeable change in less than a week. Water also helps your kidneys flush out toxins, hydrate your brain to improve concentration, and can help you lose weight.

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

As we grow older we acquire many applaudable attributes. We’re wiser, smarter, and more grateful for everything that we have. But one thing that doesn’t age quite as well are our looks. When we’re young we have everything on our side, but as time goes on things tend to turn on us somewhat, and we can sometimes end up looking not as attractive as we’d like. However, that doesn’t mean we have to give up on our looks. In the 21st century there is no excuse for us to not look out best, regardless of how old we are! Here’s how.

pexels-photo-112324Source: Pexels.com

Staying Active

Yup, you might have noticed that you don’t look quite as youthful as you once did. But think about it: when we’re young, we’re always running around, being active, regular men and women about town. As we age, we become more sedentary. If you want to stay youthful and beautiful, you should take up an exercise routine that’s right for you, one that’ll have your face looking fresh and your body look good. You’ll be glowing, basically, and everyone’s drawn to someone who glows!

Science Has the Answer

Of course, even if we work out as often as we want to we sometimes can’t mask some factors that we’d rather live without. If you can’t shift weight in one particular part of your body (you can’t, unfortunately, target weight loss when you work), you can always use a service like  GastroCenter’s Smart Lipo treatments and trim away the fat in those areas where the fat is hard to shift. Similarly, if your issue is hair loss – which affects around 50% of women and 80% of men during their life times – then you can look at consulting a hair transplant specialist and add some extra hair to boost a youthful look.

Being a Fashionista

There comes an age where we kind of slip out of the trend scene, where we’re not too sure what’s hot and what’s not. It makes sense, especially as we have so many other things going on in our lives. However, staying abreast of the clothes that’ll make us look at our best actually isn’t all that difficult – dedicate some time to reading the best clothing blogs for older people before you go shopping and you’ll look great when you return from the stores.

Living Well

Of all the things we can do, few affect our beauty greater than our lifestyles. If we eat well and don’t drink too much alcohol, we can carry on staying youthful for longer. If we live the lifestyle of a 25 year old, we won’t. Take care of yourself and you’ll naturally stay youthful and beautiful.

Accepting Who You Are

Of course, you can’t fix every single ailment. At some point you’ll need to learn to accept some of the flaws that can’t be fixed. Part of being beautiful is having confidence, and if you have confidence then people will notice it. Sometimes it’s much more about our attitude to ourselves and life than we think!

How To Raise A Healthy Teenager

How To Raise A Healthy Teenager

It’s hard enough to live a healthy and active lifestyle as an adult, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be a healthy teenager. Junk food is freely available, and often cheaper than nutritious meals. New gadgets are being released yearly, which means they’re more likely to stay indoors playing with them all weekend. Not to mention the workload that keeps stacking up, and the pressure to get into good schools.

It’s easy to see the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle in a teenager’s weight and on their skin. But if they cultivate good habits now, these teenagers could all grow up to be healthy adults. Although there are longer lists out there, here are five basic things needed to raise a healthy teenager.

3510114082_2a1cd0caac_zImage Source

Get enough sleep

Parents may wish their children would get out of bed earlier on weekends, but the average teenager needs between nine and ten hours of sleep per night. Staying up all night to work on a project or finish off an essay isn’t going to do much to help their grades, or their health if it keeps cutting into their sleeping time.

Don’t smoke, drink, or do drugs

Everything you do when you’re young can catch up to you when you’re older. Therefore, if you start smoking as a teenager, you’re more likely to have cancer, heart disease, or a stroke as an adult. Binge drinking before you reach the legal drinking age can increase your chances of getting liver disease or developing problems with alcohol. Taking any drugs will impact your health, but they will do more damage if you take them young. Professionals from Drug Rehab can help anyone you suspect is having a problem. You can contact their Phoenix location here.

Eat a varied diet

Teenagers require greater amounts of nutrition because this is when they do most of their growing. A healthy diet equals a healthy teenager. However, eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to stuff your face with spinach and lettuce every day (although leafy greens are rich in fiber, Vitamin C, and can reduce the risk of cancer). Cheese, lean meats, and even dark chocolate can all keep you healthy and energized.

Drink water

When teenagers want a fast way to improve their skin and lose some weight, they should look no further than water. Drinking water every day helps digestion and constipation, help them lose weight, and clear up spotty skin. Teenagers should also keep an eye on their caffeine intake. While it’s not harmful in small amounts, high doses of caffeine can cause anxiety and interrupt normal sleep.

Exercise

Keeping fit is not just good for the body, but it can also increase the effectiveness of studying. Exercise creates many chemicals for the brain that help motivation, focus and alertness which are all key to being a good student, especially around exam time and finals. Exercise also decreases stress hormones and chemicals like cortisol that can interfere with learning and overall health.
