COMPULSORY reading for all MEN. It might help make you a better partner/ boss/ friend…so read on. Just skip to The ‘Tips for Men’ section at bottom if you don’t want/can’t handle, the details.
Think of 3 letters that spark anguish into the mind of any woman in their middle years… P.M.S. While this can be a popular topic for jokes, it’s certainly no laughing matter for any woman who gets it (or their partners!). As I believe most people (men & women), don’t fully appreciate the seriousness of the ‘health affects’ associated with this ‘imbalance’, now we look at one way both ‘men’ & women can help alleviate the many problems associated with PMS.
Ever felt frustrated that you just can’t do everything you are ‘meant’ to, in order to be ‘healthy’? Do you even get to the point where you create ‘more stress’ trying to fit all the ‘healthy’ things into your life?
Well, I can assure you, that you are not alone…and I have a funny little story that has a lesson that I’m sure will help.
Food Ingredient Lists…Beware:
If food companies really had your health and best interests at heart, why do you think they never tell you in plain English, what is actually in their product? Because you most likely wouldn’t buy it.
Here is a few ingredient list items that are currently being used to pull the wool over your eyes. Watch out for them.
Despite being one of the simplest & cheapest ways of improving our health & work performance, I’m amazed at how few people actually get around to doing it. Here are some tips for a healthier, happier workplace.
According to the time-tested principles of Ayurvedic medicine eating heavy, hard to digest foods at night is the seed for all disorders – from fatigue, excess weight through to serious disease.
These problems are magnified if also eating late. Eating a ‘light’ dinner (according to appetite) reasonably early (digested by the time you go to bed) is one of the single most important things you can do for your lifelong health, happiness and personal performance.
Do you have trouble getting to sleep, get to sleep but wake up during the night or think you sleep well yet don’t wake up refreshed?
We did a seminar with some night shift workers. As they have to sleep during the day, and thus miss their body’s natural sleep rejuvenation cycle, getting good-quality sleep is really important for them.
While there are many possible causes of not sleeping well, one that came up (and often overlooked), is how certain foods/drinks can adversely affect your sleep. So we thought we’d outline some of the main foods to avoid/reduce, for the 3 main types of disturbed sleep.
Here are ten tips for more settled, blissful sleep:
1. Eat three meals during the day – breakfast, lunch around noon and an early dinner.
2. Do regular balanced exercise – modern research also confirms that moderate exercise can help improve sleep.
3. Try to go to bed by 10 p.m., during the drowsy (Ayurvedic Kapha) time of night, so that your mind can settle down faster.
Most people greatly underestimate the effect travel (particularly flying), has on their body. The combination of being out of routine, pressurised (dehydrating) cabins, poor food (if you can call airline food, food), being seated for extended periods & possibly added stress of rushing for flights/flight changes etc, can really take it’s toll – especially if you have to travel regularly.
I would put regular/long air travel (without the below measures to reduce to negative effects) as one of the top ways to ‘age’ your body prematurely. From the ‘pulse reading’ assessment, I used as a consultant, by far the most out of balance physiologies I ever felt, were those of Flight Attendants.
So we’ve put together 10 Top Tips for Healthy Happy Travel – How to travel without compromising your health.
