The Health Benefits of Salty Sea Air

Posted by on 17 Sep 2014 | Tagged as: health

When I was a child and my parents took me to the beach, I always remember my dad standing there taking great deep breaths and telling me to breathe deep because the sea air was good for me. Back then, he probably had mo more idea than I did of just why that particular air was so good for me or even why we had to breathe it in so deeply. But it was just one of those things that people did and they all seemed to agree that it did you the power of good.

The Health Benefits of Sunshine

Posted by on 19 Jan 2014 | Tagged as: health

When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, we are all often bombarded with well meaning warnings about spending too much time in the sun, what with skin cancer and premature aging among the things that no one really wants to be getting. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide under a wide brimmed hat the whole time you are out of doors, nor does it mean that you have to stay indoors all the time there is daylight. Unless of course you are a vampire.

So what is the reality here? Is the sun really so bad for us, or are we turning our backs on a free source of health and vitality?

Health and Working on Computers

Posted by on 20 Nov 2013 | Tagged as: health

Well, there doesn’t seem much in the way of arguments about the detrimental effects to a person’s health when they spend all day, every day stuck in front of a computer, whether it be their job, or a way of whiling away the hours playing computer games or idly surfing the Internet for whatever.

Sedentary Lifestyle

It all adds up to a sedentary lifestyle which is definitely bad for you if you do it for a prolonged period. When weeks turn into months, then you are going to need to think of ways to counteract the lack of exercise that sitting still for several hours (or more) every day entails.

Calorie Restricting for Longer Life

Posted by on 08 Dec 2012 | Tagged as: diet

A few months ago, I watched a BBC Horizon documentary on the effects of calorie restricting and how it affects the body’s aging process and I was intrigued to say the least. I watched it again a few nights ago just to remind me and press home the importance of the message it was getting across. Here’s my own take on what I learned from this.

The documentary explored the way in which restricting the calorie intake of mice resulted in greater longevity compared to mice that ate normally and resulted in reduced life span of those that were fed a high calorie diet. So far so good. These kinds of tests have been running for decades.

My Sugar Concerns

sugar concernsOver the last few months, I’ve become more and more concerned about the consumption of sugar. I’m not talking about whole populations at large, at least not in this paragraph. I’m talking about myself. You see, over the last few years, while my main, staple diet has always remained very good and I very rarely ever eat foods that you would call “processed”, I had included some foods that were high in sugar.

Now, they never really gave me any problems and my weight has always remained fairly stable over the last 10 years. I put that down to not overeating, not drinking any soda and getting some daily exercise to counterbalance the fact that I spend several hours at the computer to do my job. But as I read more into the potential time bomb that is refined sugar, the more concerned I became until I decided it was time to call “Time” on the sugar!

How Healthy is Your Diet? Part 4: An Apple a Day…

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”

healthy appleThat’s an old saying that I remember from my childhood and even though I probably didn’t understand it back then, time and research has revealed there is a lot of truth back of it. Apples have been used as a food for about as long as humans have walked on two legs and have a variety of culinary uses. But what is it that the humble apple has that makes it such a valuable and healthy food?

There are several factors that make an apple a great source of nutrition, vitamins and minerals and all-important fiber. Apples should be eaten as fresh as possible, raw and with the skin on because that’s where most of the beneficial nutritional constituents are to be found. Let’s take the main reasons why apples are so healthy one at a time:
