Making A Great Impact from Seemingly Small Things

Most of the time, we treat trifling details in our daily grind as negligible and unimportant, and we then move on to focus on what we believe are the most pressing things. These are what we thought are trivial situations, but actually have already impacted on us whether favorably or not.

Why Sleep Is Needed

Sleep is a natural body function which is performed every night, because part of the brain has to renew its mind pathways and process whatever information that has been input that day. When you don’t get the right amount of sleep, which is taken as eight hours straight rest, the brain reacts to the insufficiency and alters its naturally designed function and which may effect, consequently, drastic physical changes in our body. The brain happens to be the mastermind where all body functions coordinate to and perform, so that not having enough sleep can cut short the normal brain function, which in turn will affect the rest of the body performances, such as muscle growth, tissue repairs, and hormone balance synthesis.

Benefits of Personal Hygiene

Good health is a product of many factors and one aspect of which is derived from having good personal hygiene, which refers to a daily task of washing the hands when using the toilet or making/eating food, or handling pets/animals, plants, taking a bath daily, brushing the teeth 2-3 times every day including flossing. We reap a better health when we do our part in performing the habit of good hygiene since it does not just keep our body clean and smelling good, but also prevents sickness and infection from bacteria or viruses.

Understanding Stress

Stress is a mind thing, your body’s way of responding to pressure which is caused by both good and bad experiences. These are the physical symptoms in the body when there is stress – fast heartbeat and breathing, headache, back pain, stiff neck or tight shoulders, sweating, and upset stomach or diarrhea. When stress is not properly managed, it can affect all parts of the body, even our mind thoughts, such that a panic attack may be in the bud. There are many ways of avoiding stress, such as getting enough sleep, exercise, managing time for work and yourself, making a balance in life, finding your purpose in life, and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Water’s Wondrous Ways

Water reigns over the survival of life, such that without water, there would be no life on earth. The body uses water to help regulate the temperature of the cells, organs, tissues and to maintain other bodily functions. Drinking about 2-3 liters of water every day can help with the heart condition and maintain a balanced and healthy body. Dehydration is a result of less water volume in the body, which when in this condition can make the blood thicker causing resistance to blood flow and resulting to a high blood pressure and possibly a rise in blood cholesterol.

Living with Air

Our body cannot live without oxygen because is it a normal life function that helps burn the fats and sugars for the cells to produce energy. There is a cycle process going about when we get oxygen from the air we breathe in and releasing carbon dioxide, at the same time, which is a compound found also in the air and which is an important compound for plant photosynthesis. Just like water, air is equally important for life’s survival.
