Positive Thinking and Health

ID-10097419Healthy mind is essential for healthy life and in modern scientific perspective there can be no good health state without good (peace) thinking. Positive thinking affects health positively and negative thinking can have effect health negatively and adversely. Health as defined by WHO (World Health Organization) is a state of physical and mental well-being and not merely absence of disease. The definition of health by WHO explain, why positive thinking mind is essential for a good healthy life. Many experts are advocating adding the term “spiritual well being” in the WHO definition of health, as it is seen that if you are spiritually healthy, you are healthier physically, but many experts are there who do not agree to this addition.

Let me explain about positive thinking in my own ways. One day you find food prepared at your home is not palatable or not to your linking (you dislike that particular food prepared). If you have positive thinking mind you will “diet” that day and not be unhappy that you can loose few calories without planning it, but if you have a negative thinking you will get annoyed and make an issue of it and disturb peace of family and home. Now you should think if peace of family members is absent can you or your family members be healthy? Think the other way; the person who lost some calories, he/she will be happy to lose a few calories (skipping one meal does not a lean person leaner or thinner) and healthy as a result. Read more…

Top Unhealthy Jobs and How to Counter Them

ID-10042925Unless you’re a fitness coach or park ranger, you might not consider your job to be a healthy one. However, certain jobs are worse for your health than others. Fortunately, you aren’t living at your workplace, so it is possible to counteract the unhealthy side of earning money.

The Worst Jobs for Your Health

When it comes to the unhealthiest jobs, stressful positions rank pretty high. High stress jobs can wreak havoc on your health. Lawyers are some of the most stressed people around, but they aren’t the only ones. Soldiers also fall into this category, with extremely stressful jobs that can result in post traumatic stress syndrome, among many other problems.

If you work as a police officer or firefighter, you are at higher risk for having a heart attack. While most people realize that these public servants are more likely to be injured or killed on the job, the long hours, poor nutrition and lack of sleep also contributes to poor health.

Shift workers in hospitals face many of the same issues as police and firefighters. In addition to very long shifts, nurses and ER doctors find themselves working in stressful conditions consistently. They rarely have time to eat a proper meal and poor eating habits can cause long term health problems.

Office workers also tend to be unhealthy as a whole. Sitting in front of a computer screen all day puts you at risk for eye strain, repetitive stress syndrome and back pain. Working at a desk can also lead to obesity, which brings a host of other problems with it. Read more…

Walking is Best for Health

ID-10033908Let’s discuss about some of the unconventional and conventional but not commonly practiced health tips are dealt to remain fit and healthy and enjoy the fruits of good life. Many people are aware of many of the tips here, but if you are reading this article you should give a thought and ponder about the applicability of the health tips discussed here and I assure you that there will be dramatic change in your health as well as the way you look into life as a whole.

Brisk walking is the best exercise to remain fit. You may think running is better, but my opinion is walking as you can continue it lifelong (running you can not continue when you grow old). It can be easily said that running can keep you fit but so can walking of about 30 minutes to one hour a day. Moreover you can keep walking for longer duration. For example drug “A” is better than drub “B” for treatment of a particular disease, but with drug “A”, compliance is not good and with drug “B”, compliance is good. So here drug “B” should be prescribed by the doctor in general (drug “A” can be prescribed to a patient who is highly motivated and will take it despite difficulties). In this case also if a person is highly motivated for regular exercise than he/she should choose running instead of walking to remain fit. Read more…
