The importance of sleep

Sleep makes you feel better, but its importance goes way beyond just cheering you up or reducing under eye circles. With an adequate amount of sleep, lets say 8 hours each night, you will be one step closer to living a healthy lifestyle. Your memory will improve; you will live longer (according to recent studies) and feel more creative. Sleep gives us pleasure and satisfaction, but it also gives our mind fuel for the day ahead. To be an athlete or a champion, sleep is just as important as working out, and without sleep you’ll run yourself into the ground. Many children who go to bed early have better grades than those who go to bed late. Sleep works, and it’s something you should try do more often if you’re not getting those essential 8 hours each and every night.

Will dog walking help you lose weight?

Dog walking is a light form of cardio, and if you’re not regularly walking much throughout the day, you’ll most likely shred the pounds to begin with. Then, as your body begins to adapt, you’ll need to up the speed and distance you walk to continue losing weight. Eventually you may even have to start jogging and running, so the answer is simple really. Yes you can lose weight dog walking, but you’ll need to continuously push your body to make sure the weight continues to come off. You’ll also need to complement this new lifestyle with healthy meals and sensible eating. That’s easier said than done though because there will be days when you fancy a quick walk around the park, but your body and your dog will demand a longer walk and it’s something you’ll both have to adapt to.

Cardio: How long until I see a difference?

Most health related magazines tell you that if you eat well and do lots of cardio you’ll shed the pounds and became a fitter person. That can be true, but it’s also worth mentioning that it can take a seriously long time. You probably don’t want to hear this right now if you’re looking to lose weight fast but being dedicated over a long period of time is the only way of achieving real results. It takes lots of hard graft and hours in the gym to see a difference, but make sure you don’t give up. Within just a couple of weeks      you’ll see a slight change, but if you take a photo before starting your cardio regime and compare as the weeks go on, you’ll be able to see the bigger picture and you’ll be all the more happier for it.

A Treatment For Those Eyes

Millions of us unfortunately suffer from dark circles under our eyes. If you also have this problem, this blog post may help you.

There are many causes for under-eye bags, be it a lack of sleep, bad habits, allergies or even natural effects of aging. The one thing you can do though, is try different treatments to help combat this.

Soothing your eyes with something cool can help a lot of the time. So we would recommend placing cucumbers over your eyes as they will sooth the area. Make sure to refrigerate beforehand.

Another great item to use are teabags, as they contain tanning which helps ease down the eye-bags. You have to place the teabags in boiling water first and then place them on a plate, allowing them to cool down. Once cool, place over each eye and let them sit for 10 minutes. Your eyes should feel much fresher, whilst also looking rejuvenated.

The Importance of Core Strength

Getting “ripped” is the ultimate goal of most people’s workout sessions, but doing this without any understanding of how to build up real strength can have very superficial results. You find that, amongst many “fit” people, their muscles are mostly superficial; comparing them to somebody who has built up their strength and muscles in the proper way clearly demonstrates where their failings lie. The reality is that even if you have tremendous musculature on your arms and shoulders, your ability to utilise all of your muscles is severely reduced if you don’t have correspondingly strong muscles throughout your core to support the activities.

A good example of how people can go wrong is with weight training with partners. While it can be important to train with and amongst other people to help motivate each other, having somebody’s help to manoeuvre those weights into place can allow you to train with weights that are more than your body is suited to. This can cause your various muscle groups to develop imbalances, which can, in turn, lead to a number of problems with your joints and posture. The key with weight training is to train with weights that you are comfortable with so that you can build up a balanced body.

The Importance of the Lymphatic System

One of the areas that receives very little attention by the public, and even during doctor visits, is the lymphatic system, or lymph system. The lymphatic system is a series of tubes running throughout the various areas of the body, known as lymph vessels, and lymph nodes. The lymph vessels serve as the highway on which lymph is transported.

Lymph is a fluid that closely resembles blood plasma in substance, and contains a high concentration of white blood cells. This is because the Lymph system is an essential part of the immune response, particularly when it relates to possible infections caused by injury.

It is also closely involved in the fight against tumours. Because it is so involved in fighting cancerous tumours, the lymph nodes often become contaminated with the cancer cells, and so the lymph system is usually the first place cancer will spread to.

The lymphatic system actually has a lot of bearing on our day to day health. This is because so much of the waste our bodies generate, and a lot of the bacterial contamination our skin is exposed to, gets dealt with primarily by our lymph system.

The day to day concerns people should have about their lymphatic system primarily relate to the closely related issues of blocked lymph nodes and poor lymph circulation. Each of these problems can increase the stress on your immune system and result in lower abilities to fight off infection and remain healthy.
