Little Things That Make A Difference
Most of the time, we treat trifling details in our daily grind as negligible and unimportant, and we then move on to focus on what we believe are the most pressing things. We may not be fully aware about these small things, but they have already affected our life and our very existence.
Why Sleep Is Needed
Just as what each part of our body does, sleep also plays an important role in our body, in the sense that the sleep process is part of the brain function, which helps to form new thought pathways and, at the same, processes information that are absorbed in the mind. Not being able to get eight hours of sleep will create an immediate brain dysfunction, such as slowing down on our memory tasks and can also affect the physical make-up of our body, retrogressing in time. Long periods of sleep energizes back the body to perform is daily functions, such as muscle growth, tissue repair, hormone function, as well as thought processing.
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. We reap a better health when we do our part in performing the habit of good hygiene since it does not just keep our body clean and smelling good, but also prevents sickness and infection 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. Stress badly affects our emotions and can cause physical symptoms like – fast heartbeat and breathing, headache, back pain, stiff neck or tight shoulders, sweating, and upset stomach or diarrhea. Over time, when stress is not properly handled will eventually affect most of the body parts and can go as far as developing panic attack to some. By 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, you will not only lengthen your life but, more importantly, you are able to avoid a stressful life.
Worth of Water
Water reigns over the survival of life, such that without water, there would be no life on earth. 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. Dehydration is a result of less water volume in the body, which when in this condition can make the blood thicker causing resistance to blood flow and resulting to a high blood pressure and possibly a rise in blood cholesterol.
The human body needs oxygen as an essential element to burn the body’s fuel sources, sugars and fatty acids, in order for the cells to produce energy. There is a cycle process going about when we get oxygen from the air we breathe in and releasing carbon dioxide, at the same time, which is a compound found also in the air and which is an important compound for plant photosynthesis. Just like water, air is equally important for life’s survival.
