Your health and a special need kid.

I know some families who are having special need kids and being very close to them make me feel little worried about their health both physical and mental. Whenever I raise this concern to them they make me shut saying they have much more important work to do then their health. But recently I meet a lady in her late 50’s during my morning run and started talking during the conversation I got to know she is having a special kid and raising him all alone.

Few points which I understood and would like to raise here so that people don’t do the same mistake. Believe me, learning from others mistake is the most important and reliable way of making life easy when it doesn’t look like one. Take good care of your mind and body. Do whatever makes you feel happy and light.

  1. She is raising her kid alone. Don’t fight with your partner. Together you can handle the situation much better. With a special kid, I have seen partners fighting and blaming each other. Don’t do that, this cant be changed but you guys can make life beautiful by being together.
  2. Don’t be alone. Take help of the community and family. Don’t hesitate in asking help.
  3. Think positive. Yes, the most important thing is to think positive and healthy. Thinking has a great power and my experience says positive thinking has the power of the nuclear bomb. If you think positive you are going to win.
  4. Exercise daily. Yes, take good care of yourself. Take out one or half hour for yourself. Get out in the open air and breath. You have to be healthy so that you can focus on your kid’s health.
  5. Don’t compare. Yes, don’t compare your kid with others. We all know every kid is different but then too we do the mistake of comparing them. This will make you feel depressed.
  6. Meditate. Meditation has some great powers hidden inside it. Meditation will not only make you feel light but it will fill you with some magical positive energy.

Weight loss- A commoner way to think!

Not being a celebrity and having limited access to everything can’t come in between you and your health. There are so many ways to we can work so that our body became strong and healthy. I understand that we commoners are busy with our daily life so much that we don’t have time for our health but if we take out 30 mins from our daily busy life and we will be much more happy and healthy.

What we should do to make yourself think exercise is important for our health?

  1. Health is more valuable than money. You cant buy it so work for it. If you don’t work on your health thinking that it is not important and you don’t have time. Then you have to spend much more time and money visiting doctors. So change your mindset and understand “health is wealth.”
  2. If you are healthy and strong you can do more work. Yes, being healthy in a way will help you to work more and earn more.
  3. You look younger and fit if you follow a regular exercise plan.
  4. As time is changing we are not getting proper food which results in many deficiencies in our body but if we take care of our body and understand our physical body needs we can save much more pain which our body will go through.
  5. A fit body and soul is a healthy place and all good things will want to stay there. So start today, start now and take care of your health and mind.

There are many reasons you can ignore your health but a single reason to take care of your health will solve many problems. So don’t think twice but start from today!

A healthy drink which helped me to lose my weight and if you try it will help you too!

Hypothyroidism a thyroid disorder.

An unexplained change in weight is one of the most common signs of a thyroid disorder. Weight gain may signal low levels of thyroid hormones, a condition called hypothyroidism. In contrast, if the thyroid produces more hormones than the body needs, you may lose weight unexpectedly. This is known as hyperthyroidism. Thyroid hormone is responsible for your overall metabolism

Women are as much as 10 times as likely as men to have a thyroid problem. Remember to get your thyroid tested.

I myself is suffering from Hypothyroidism and I get my TSH tested every three months. It’s under control with proper medication and exercise. So if you suspect a thyroid problem, ask your doctor to do a blood test for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) as well as for thyroid antibodies.

Hypothyroidism and symptoms:

  • Feeling tired and having no energy are issues associated with lots of conditions, but they’re strongly linked with hypothyroidism. If you’re still tired in the morning or all day after a full night’s sleep, that’s a clue that your thyroid may be underactive.
  • Feeling unusually depressedor sad can also be a symptom of hypothyroidism.
  • Skin that’s dry and itchy can be a symptom of hypothyroidism. The change in skin texture and appearanceis probably due to slowed, which can reduce sweating. Skin without enough moisture can quickly become dry and flaky, nails can become brittle and may develop ridges.
  • Unexplained weight gain

How do you manage your weight?

  • Proper medication. Get your TSH tested every after three months.
  • Start with some body activity like walking and cross training.
  • Follow a routine of eating healthy and measured.
  • Relax and meditation. This will calm you down and motivate to get back to shape.
  • Avoid vegetables from the cruciferous family are known goitrogens. They include brussels, sprouts, broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and more.

  Hypothyroidism is not a disease but a hormonal disorder which can be kept under control if treated on right time.

Say NO to sugar but Why?

Say no to sugar as added sugar contains NO essential nutrients and is bad for your health.

Sugar and what are the side effects of it!

  • Obesity and weight gain – Eating excessive amounts of sugar spikes insulin levels and no matter how much you exercise, when insulin is chronically elevated, most of that energy gets deposited and stored in the fat cells.
  • Diabetes – Although eating sugar doesn’t cause diabetes, it can accelerate complications and progress the disease.
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) – When too much sugar is consumed day after day, it gets stored as fat in the liver, causing NAFLD. This can lead to serious problems like liver inflammation, which may progress to scarring and irreversible damage.
  • Heart Disease – Research has shown that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages can raise blood pressure. Also, a high-sugar diet may stimulate the liver to release more toxic fats into the bloodstream. Both factors are known to boost heart disease risk.
  • Aging – Scientists have noted connections between sugar consumption and cell aging, along with skin wrinkling.

Say NO to sugar and help yourself to get a better and fit lifestyle!
