Is Material Stuff More Important to You Than Your Health?

It seems strange that we make time and spend money on things to make ourselves happy and to be able to live our life in a more comfortable fashion yet often do not make allowances for time and resources to take care of our bodies. Houses, property, cars, overseas trips, new clothes and electronic ‘toys’ all seem so important in our modern day lives. But where does the health of our body fit in to all of this?

Most often nowhere and this is evident in the fact that six out of ten adults do not do enough proper exercise to keep themselves strong and therefore healthy. Most people do not fully understand how important the muscular system is of the human body which makes up roughly 50 percent of its weight. Muscle cells are metabolically highly active and their health dictates the overall health of their body.

If the muscular system is allowed to grow weak with not enough muscle building and maintaining activity it will set the body into a downward spiral of declining health that can at best guarantee a lower quality of life and at worst instigate an early exit from this world. You would think we all would want to protect ourselves from this wouldn’t you?

Our modern day lives do not any longer have enough muscular ‘work’ in them to stimulate the ‘growth and repair’ hormones that renew and replace old worn out cells and tissues. So unless we take it upon ourselves to replace this work with intentional proper exercise we get chemicals whispering to the cells to decay, deteriorate and die.

An adult will lose 15-25 pounds of muscle tissue as they get older and this is what siphons the life force from us. Not the years or aging but the loss of this precious muscle tissue which is in fact our body’s engine. We start off with a V-8 and if we do nothing to protect and look after it with proper exercise it will end up with the power of a motor scooter.

So many people view proper exercise as something ‘optional’, a luxury or something they do if they have time left over. What is the point of having flash cars, houses and clothes if your body is aging at a premature and accelerated rate, and it will be if you are not taking care of business …

How to Find the Nearest Gynecologist?

How to Find the Nearest Gynecologist?

Many people don’t like going to the doctor and even more when it is a gynecologist examination. There isn’t anything dangerous that can happen, but the most common problem is exposing their private parts. Anyway, it is important to visit them from time to time to check if everything is okay. You might have a problem you don’t realize you have, so in order to prevent something bad from happening it is recommended to visit them once or twice a year.

There will always be good and bad doctors like at every type of job, so you should check them in advance and make a decision where to go. There’s no need to be uncomfortable when you can choose who can examine you. So, you can ask your friends for a recommendation and they can share their experience with you. You can probably find a great gynecologist clinic in your town.

Great Reputation

When you put your fear of the doctor on the side, the essential thing is that they have a good reputation which usually means that they are experienced and are doing a great job. Reputation matters a lot here and it is hard to get, so when you find someone who is respected, you know they will be very professional. You can check this in many ways like asking other doctors for a recommendation and they will probably recommend the best one. If you don’t know anyone from that field you can check online and the feedback they are getting from their clients. No one would want to ruin their reputation, so they will probably take good care of you.

Consulting with a Friend

Your friend will always give you the best advice if they’ve been in the same situation. Maybe they can’t recommend someone if they were not satisfied, but there are other aspects of it where they can help. It is much easier to get rid of your fear when someone else does it.

Get informed about their experience and what you should know in advance. Usually, there are some questions you have to answer related to your health and your family health. Also, you might have some questions for them which you should prepare. Ask a relative where they are going and what they think of that clinic. Read more on this link.

Good Manner

Their manner will matter a lot when it …

Changes Life Takes You Through

Life is change. Sure, that seems like a simple sentence. But, indeed, it is the most complex sentence in existence in reality. Change happens once in life all the time that it happens, each time that it does happen. Nothing ever stays the same. That is the point of this article with a small twist: The only thing that does stay the same is the fact that time passes, and we all need to take the proper actions in relation to time and its capacity for change and progression, or we do miss everything.

As we can tell by concepts and realities of the past and future, time is not just an idle concept we can ignore. As the old saying goes, “remember death, remember change.” Sure, unless we take the proper actions, we are all doomed to changes we do not want. That is the total reality of the situation.

Sure, rationality is adaptation in every genuine sense and way that counts. Unnecessary rigidity never counts, for it always creates problems, especially in relation to time. In fact, unnecessary rigidness is a crime against existence ultimately in this sense: It ultimately leads to the unrealistic, “I can beat this irrationally” thinking or the “short cut” doing of the cheater, which never works ultimately. Think about it, no one can cheat time.

Some think that they can, but they never do succeed in any genuine way. “Time marches on” as the line goes. Change is emotionally worse when you are too rigid in any way. Just the opposite being too loose can lead to problems too, such as wasted time can be one of them if you are too weak and loose.

So, in a sense we are all looking for the healthy balance between rigid and loose that genuinely works, aren’t we? My personal answer is, yes we are. Life may take you through changes, then, but adaptable neutrality is always best, always. Sure, it is what I mean in other articles about patience, understanding and tolerance anyhow. Sure, a certain amount of action needs to be taken, and a certain amount of inaction needs to be done also, but like I said: “The healthy balance.” That is it. Sure, rushing in or going too slow is never good, but the right speed always is, especially when driving on the road, to use an example there.

Look 10 Years Younger

Look 10 Years Younger

The third of a series of fascinating articles by Derek Boughton about how to look, feel and be years younger naturally.

In the first article we introduced the concept of Facial Isometrics. In the 2nd, we worked on the specific exercises for the neck and chin area. So let’s continue with these anti-aging techniques by moving up a bit!

A. Sides of mouth

While doing these, make sure that you concentrate on using the muscles all the way out to the edge of your face – don’t just use your lip muscles.

a) The action is to pull the side of the lip straight out to the side. As usual, firstly do the left side for at least 10 times, then the right side, then alternate left and right and finally stretch out both sides at the same time.

b) Now to use the opposing muscles, pull the left end of your lip away from your jaw-line and towards the centre of your mouth. Repeat on the right side; alternate; then both sides in together.

To finish off here, alternate the last movements of 5 a) and b), that is, both ends in then both ends out 10 times making sure you complete it with both sides out – I say this because I would rather my mouth ‘remembers’ to smile out than pucker in! Remember the saying “I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.”

B. Mouth to ears

This is one of my favourites and is what a basic face lift is trying to accomplish. That is, to lift the jowls and ends of the lips out and up towards the ears.

a) So starting with the left side, pull the corner of your mouth diagonally up towards your ear. Do this at least 10 times where some of them are really pulling so hard that you are pulling your ear down slightly (some of you will find this easier to actually achieve than others but you should at least be getting this feeling). Continue right, alternate, both sides together.

b) Now of course, do the whole thing in the opposite direction. This tends to use the muscle in the upper lip mostly, but try to use muscle as far up the cheek as possible. Now I tend to prefer my muscles’ memory to be a smile rather than concluding with this strange frown …
