Staying healthy isn’t too difficult. All you have to do is adopt some healthy life habits and you will be leading a healthy life. Healthy habits are the ones that keep you physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically viable. It’s not rocket science. In fact, these habits are easy to adopt and easy to follow once you get started.

Don’t waste any more time! Adopt the following habits to lead a healthy life.

1. Quit Smoking

Do you smoke? If yes, then try to quit smoking. We know that it’s easier said than done, but you have to make up your mind and be consistent. Smoking is one of the leading causes of death. It deteriorates your lungs and affects your entire respiratory system. Decide that you want to quit smoking and start decreasing the frequency of smoking. You will get there in some time.

2. Exercise

We have said it a hundred times before and we will say it again, add exercise to your daily routine. You don’t have to join a gym or get proper exercising equipment. Just heading out and walking for half an hour each day will be enough. You will feel refreshed and your entire body will respond positively to your exercise. You will also notice how relaxed and stress-free you’ll feel.

3. Sleep Well

Not sleeping the required hours each night is one of the leading reasons for deteriorating health. You must sleep at least 8 hours each night. Sleeping is a resting phase for your mind and body. It helps your muscles and brain relax and recover from the constant exertion. It gives you the energy to take on the responsibilities of the next day. Furthermore, it also has a number of health benefits.

4. Eat Fruits and Vegetables

Do you know that adding fruits and vegetables to your diet can reduce the risk of several diseases?

Many of us have simply cut out fruits and vegetables from our diet. This is affecting our health and also making us overweight. Fruits and vegetables are filled with healthy nutrients that our body needs to function properly. Therefore, add them to your daily diet and you will see your health improving.

5. Drink in Moderation

Too much drinking adversely affects your liver. It also is the cause of many other health risks. Therefore, you should avoid heavy drinking. As a rule of thumb, men should never drink more than 2 drinks of alcohol a day and women should only drink 1. You may drink a glass of red wine, but remember, moderation is important.

These were just some of the healthy life habits that you should adopt right away. These will improve your health and well-being and you will notice a positive change in yourself. Remember, only you can bring about a change in yourself. So, what are you waiting for? Get started today!

Lifesaving as a Profession and Vocation

Date: June 25th, 2019

Lifesaving is a conscious act that actively involves multiple activities that include the following:

  • Rescue
  • Resuscitation 
  • First aid

The term generally refers to aquatic rescue and other aspects of water safety. However, it can also include flooded areas and river rescue, ice rescue, swimming pool rescue and various other incidences that require emergency medical services. Many activities for lifesaving include specialization in oceanic environments. This is called ‘coastal lifesaving’ or ‘surf lifesaving.’ 

Those people who actively participate in virus lifesaving activities as volunteers are generally called ‘lifesavers.’ On the other hand, if you were to dedicate your life to lifesaving activities as a full-fledged profession, then you will become an EMT (emergency medical technician). In case you work at the beach to rescue people from drowning and other mishaps, then you will be called a ‘lifeguard.’

Indeed, the easy availability of processed food has led to an epidemic of obesity that is drastically cutting down our life span. Apart from that, it is also destroying our existing quality of life.

For your own wellbeing, it is imperative that you pursue good health through your diet. This is only possible if you substitute junk food with more wholesome food.

While it is true that it may not be as palpable as the stuff we are used to consuming on a daily basis, it is more beneficial and nutritious in the long run.
