Fatigue A Common Fall- Out Of Urban Living

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Fatigue

Fatigue is a common health complaint. It is however, one of the hardest terms to define and a symptom of many different conditions. Fatigue is another word for extreme exhaustion of both mental and physical strength.

Weariness, tiredness, exhaustion or lethargy is generally defined as a feeling of lack of energy. Fatigue is not the same as drowsiness, but the desire to sleep may accompany fatigue. In general, drowsiness is feeling the need to sleep, while fatigue is a lack of energy and motivation. Drowsiness and apathy can be symptoms of fatigue.

Causes of fatigue

Fatigue can be a normal and important response to physical exertion, emotional stress, boredom or lack of sleep. You feel you can’t go on or even talk to anyone, short breaks don’t help and you need to take a longer break to relax. Mental fatigue is caused by any prolonged activity along with high level of stress and emotions. It’s seen among individuals who work on tight dead lines for long duration and carry out tasks that require continuous attention and effort.

One can prevent fatigue by defining limits and sticking to them. Physical and mental threshold of work should be for eight hours and include some music, walk or reading in your routine then fatigue will rarely set in.

For sure-fire cures do this once a week:

Get a massage and listen to soothing music.

Eat light and go for brisk walk to pump up blood circulation.

Avoid phone calls.

Cut open, peel or deeply smell citrus fruits such as lemon, orange or lime between tasks.

Dab eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief or crush leaves by hand and inhale.

Keep a bunch of flowers like jasmine near your work space.

Pregnant woman

In today’s fast paced life the modern busy woman even when pregnant has no option but to travel and there is hardly any time for taking break. Many women are working even when they are in an advance stage of their pregnancy and that involves travel too. Many don’t like the idea of being home bound.

Pregnant woman

Its not that traveling is not safe for pregnant women but you just need to remember few things that will help you to make your travel comfortable and safe. Of course, you will need to take more into consideration depending on which stage of pregnancy you are at, and the nature of your travels. If you’re just popping to the shops or perhaps going for a house viewing, then you may not be required to travel very far at all. On the other hand, journeys which include flights might require a little more preparation.

Don’t just sit:

Pregnant woman

You may be traveling by airplane or by road it is important that you get up and move around every other hour. This is more important if you are in advance stage of pregnancy as this will prevent any soreness and stiffness.

Carry snacks:

Pregnant woman

It is a good idea to have snacks in long journey. It is also safe to carry snacks with you as there might be need of eating if you get stuck in traffic or your flight is delayed and you have to wait. This will also help you to deal with usual discomforts like feeling faint which is related to blood sugar levels.

Excess abdominal fat - More risky than you think!

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Did you know that majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat?

Excess Abdominal Fat

The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible and makes them self conscious. However, what most people don’t realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular is not only ugly but is also a dangerous risk factor to health.

Two Types of Abdominal Fat

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that “beer belly” appearance.

Both of them greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer and other degenerative diseases. Science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones then I believe that reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your top priorities. So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat?

The first thing you must understand that there is absolutely no quick fix solutions or pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. The only solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound strategic nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Dieting only will help you lose significantly less abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place. I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only ugly, but also dangerous.

Here are few exercises that you can do and get a flatter and more toned stomach. When performed correctly and combined with proper nutrition the following exercises can aid in the efforts to have the abdomen that you desire.

• The use of movements that do not restrict the body and do not use weight such as side bends and twists or hanging from a bar are all good for the oblique muscles of the abdomen.

side bands twists hanging

• Standing crunch which brings one shoulder and elbow in and down to the side of the upper torso.

• Lower your body to an angle of seventy degrees and curl the torso forward until you crunch into a full contraction of the abdominal muscles.

• Crunches are also good for exercising the abdomen.

Crunches

• By lying on a bench with your arms extended behind you as if reaching for something. Then bring the knees up and as far in as possible while keeping the pelvis flat against the bench.

bench crunch

• Hang from a bar and keep the knees even with the abdomen, then raise them toward the head as far as you can get them.

hanging crunch

• Sitting on a bench cross legged while holding onto the sides to support you. Pull the knees toward your chest by raising the legs.

Don’t waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for major diseases. Get the solution to get rid of it work hard, eat right and enjoy your life to full extent.
