Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle

Many people hate the term ‘healthy lifestyle’ since it brings vivid images of eating only green leafy veggies and running countless miles every day. But it does not have to be this way at all. You can enjoy a very healthy lifestyle by simply making a few effective but very important life-changing choices.

Why You Should Know First Aid Techniques

If you know the right first aid technique for the right incident, you just might be able to save a precious human life. This holds particularly true whenever a person’s life is in grave danger and there is no one around to do whatever it takes to save that person. In fact, in most sudden medical emergencies such as violence or accidents, paramedics and other emergency medical technicians may be too far away to help.

In such a scenario, it is not always possible to wait for external help and you have to do something on your own, in order to make a difference. This is precisely why knowing what you should do and when you should do it is important. This knowledge can help you to keep a fellow human being alive until the real professionals take over. Let us take a look at a critically important first aid technique that can make a viable difference when the chips are down and no one else is around.

Learn CPR to take Action before First Responders Arrive

Importance of CPR

When it comes to responding to emergencies, prudence and training take precedence over courage. After all, jumping into a stormy river to save a life is all well and good only when you know how to swim and rescue a drowning person in the first place. Otherwise, you will become another liability for first responders. You should always remember that only highly skilled and well-trained professionals have both the equipment and the necessary fitness and training to get the job done. This is why your ‘no guts, no glory’ approach can land you into serious trouble.

However, if you know how to perform CPR and other such life-saving activities then, of course, you will be a great help and might actually keep a beloved friend or relative from leaving the world before their time. You will be able to play a part in keeping them alive at least until the EMTs (emergency medical technicians) secure the scene!

You Can Start Living A Healthy Life If You Truly Believe in Yourself


Date: March 24th, 2020

Believing in oneself is one of the keys to living a healthy life. If you have the willpower and the conviction to turn your life around, rest assured that nothing can come in your way. And you will be able to get back in shape, lose those extra pounds, and look and feel absolutely wonderful!

It Doesn’t Pay to Sweat the Sweet Stuff!

Sweets are full of processed white sugar, which is the arch-nemesis of a healthy lifestyle. These empty calories add nothing of value to the human body and do not even satiate hunger pangs. This means that after having a glass of cola full of white sugar, that contains 300 calories, you will still feel hungry enough to eat a 500 calorie meal. Thus, your caloric count will be 800. If you multiply this for three meals a day, then you will certainly have a problem.

Promote Health through Your Diet By Eating Nutritious and Healthy Meals Every Day

Promote Your Health Through Your Diet

You are what you eat. This is an age-old adage that is as refreshingly true today as it has ever been in ages past. In fact, it is now becoming increasingly more relevant in the 21st century, because of the steady proliferation of junk food that is always within an arm’s length of desire.

If you want to order a pizza, simply download the relevant app and order one at the swipe of your fingers. It will be delivered to your doorstep within half an hour. You can also order shakes and pies the same way. Unfortunately, all of these food items are classified as junk food. This is because of the extremely high level of empty calories in a single meal. Many experts now consider pizza to be roughly akin to reverse liposuction. That is, instead of removing extra fats from your body you are actually putting them in!

Many of us go through life like automatons, programmed to get up to go to work, come back, eat and go to sleep. But this is not really living, but more of an existence in which you breathe in and breath out till your time is up!

This is why it is absolutely imperative that you improve the quality of your life in many subtle ways so that you can derive conscious joy from each and every moment. It is not really that difficult to do that, especially if you are really serious about it.

You Can Achieve Your Peak Fitness by Following a Healthy and Natural Diet

The age-old adage, “we are what we eat,” is as important today as it has ever been. In fact, thanks to the steady proliferation of processed food, it is now more relevant than ever before.

The easy availability of great tasting but harmful and sometimes, downright toxic substances, has led to a steep increase in high blood pressure, chronic diabetes, and other equally deadly conditions. These illnesses not only decrease our life expectancy but they also drastically decrease the quality of our life.

However, it does not have to be this way at all, provided you are willing to make a few changes in your culinary habits and seek health through your diet. All you have to do is substitute junk food items with considerably more wholesome foods.

Many of us are not getting enough sleep and even when we do, we wake up cranky and depressed.  We either eat too much or not enough. And going to the gym only leaves us feeling more exhausted than ever.  Then, there is our perennially sedentary lifestyle that acts as the gateway to obesity, high blood pressure, and a whole lot more. 

All of these factors have led to a steady deterioration of the quality of life but it does not have to be this way at all.

What You Must Always Know In Case You Have To Respond To An Emergency


Date: March 14th, 2020

What to Do in An Emergency Situation

An emergency situation is almost always unexpected, and it might occur when you least expect it. But you can cope with just about any sort of emergency or disaster if you follow this checklist:

Never Give in to Panic

This is the single most important thing to remember when responding to emergencies. Giving way to sheer mindless panic will not help you in the least, irrespective of the issue that you face. On the contrary, panic can make an already bad situation considerably worse.  That is because it will essentially drive away all rational thoughts from your mind and thereby rob you of your objectivity. In case you feel that you are being absolutely overwhelmed by panic,  you should stop and take a few deep breaths. They will calm you down.

How to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle does not mean chomping on green veggies and running marathons every day of the week. On the contrary, you can enjoy a really healthy lifestyle by simply making a few easy but important life-changing choices. Some of them include the following:

Junk Food Is Out, Clean Eating Is In

This does not mean that you have to bid farewell to your favorite hamburger and shakes forever. You can enjoy the ‘good things’ in life, but only in moderation. For example, you can have a properly demarcated cheat day every week to hog to your heart’s content. You can put it on your wall calendar and look forward to it. The anticipation will make the whole experience more savory than ever before.
