Making A Great Impact from Seemingly Small Things
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. These are what we thought are trivial situations, but actually have already impacted on us whether favorably or not.
The Sleep Factor
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. Sleep is so important that not being able to get a sufficient 8 hours of sleep rest can create a gradual brain malfunction in terms of not being able for the brain to normally perform as designed. 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.
Effects of Personal Hygiene
Good and proper personal hygiene is connected to good health and this comes from performing on a daily basis hygiene habits such as taking a bath at least every day, washing your hands after using the toilet or making/eating food, or handling pets, brushing and flossing the teeth 2-3 times a day. 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.
Effects of Stress
Stress is a mind thing, your body’s way of responding to pressure which is caused by both good and bad experiences. 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. When stress is not properly managed, it can affect all parts of the body, even our mind thoughts, such that a panic attack may be in the bud. 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.
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. Keeping the body fully hydrated by taking as much water as possible is good for the heart, too. Water volume in the body must be maintain, otherwise, a lack of it will result to dehydration which can cause the blood to thicken such that there’s resistance to blood flow; the total effect is high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
Living with Air
Oxygen is vital to the body’s normal function to burn sugars and fatty acids for the cells to be energized. We take in oxygen from the air we breathe in and when we do so, we also release carbon dioxide, which is essential compound needed for plant photosynthesis. Just like water, air is equally important for life’s survival.
