Making A Great Impact from Seemingly Small Things
It seems that, sometimes, we lose track of putting premium on what are the intangible things, as we perceive them to be simply petty and insignificant, when they are actually the very things that can make a difference in our life. These are what we thought are trivial situations, but actually have already impacted on us whether favorably or not.
The Sleep Factor
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.
Importance of Personal Hygiene
Making a good habit of performing personal hygiene daily is tantamount to maintaining good health and, therefore, simple daily tasks 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, can make a tremendous contribution to a healthy body. The effect of good personal hygiene is priceless as it helps in maintaining good health for our body by way of making our body clean always, thus preventing illness and infection coming from bacteria or viruses.
Stress is a mind process which is in response to a pressure situation derived from a difficult experience, such that when this reaction is not contained will ultimately affect the other body parts’ functions. 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. Stress can radically cause so much ill-health damage to the body if it’s not controlled, so much so that it can reach as far as the mind resulting into a panic attack on the part of the person concerned. To avoid stress, here are healthy ways to follow: 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 is as equally important as life itself, without it there is no life. Basically, our body is made up of 70% water because it needs that much volume to help regulate the temperature in the cells, tissues, and organs. Drinking about 2-3 liters of water every day can help with the heart condition and maintain a balanced and healthy body. When the body is dehydrated, blood tends to thicken, therefore, causing a resistance to flow, resulting in high blood pressure and a rise in blood cholesterol.
How Important is 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. Oxygen is taken from the air that we breathe in, and with that as we take in oxygen we also, at the same time release carbon dioxide into the air, which is taken in by the plants during photosynthesis. Therefore, life cannot continue without air.
