Lose Weight : Come up with action steps involving nutritional changes, exercise, etc.

Eat Better : Limit eating sweets to twice per week" or reduce consumption of fast food from three times per week to once per week" or increase servings of fruits and vegetables to five per day."

Quit Smoking : Set a realistic quit date. Make sure you are not setting yourself up for failure by trying to quit during an especially stressful time. If you're a heavy smoker, talk to your doctor and consider using nicotine replacement therapy such as nicotine patches, gum or medications. Clear your home of all smoking-related paraphernalia (cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays, etc.). Set action steps to reduce your tobacco intake slowly, like cut back by one cigarette per day over the next week." Also think about a plan to deal with cravings and challenging situations.

A realistic action step might be something like "During times of stress, I will practice deep breathing techniques, write in a journal or go for a walk to clear my head."

Give Up Fast Food : It is not always possible for some people to give up all fast food, so begin by familiarizing yourself with the healthier options on fast food menus. Try using restaurants' websites to look up nutrition information, or pick up nutrition pamphlets inside restaurants. Work toward planning ahead and packing nutritious meals to take with you.

Chikunguniya - Tips To Overcome The After Effects

Last Updated: Tue, Oct, 06 2015 12:03

Chikunguniya! This is a painful disease that keeps its after effects for months to-gether. However, some sincere and dedicated efforts can help recover quickly. This deadly virus mostly affects the limbs and joints below the hip. It makes one difficult to walk, particularly after resting for a while. Need to be very careful while walking as sprains are easy to come.

I was consulting a physiotherapist, who explained me about the damage this virus creates. It primarily damages the liquid at the joints which acts as a lubricant and hence creates this pain.

Now how do we recreate the liquid?
1) Pure exercise. Need to walk daily atleast for 30 minutes in the morning. This will help quickly create those lubricants required for the joints and limbs
Drink Water. Take ample water on a daily basis. Preferably have tender coconuts. Live more on fruits, so that you get the required nutrition and protiens
Warm Water Fermentation: Take half a bucket of warm water. Add a pinch of crystal salt and then dip your legs for 15-20 minutes daily morning and evening. This will help improve blood circulation, and relieves pain to an extent.
Some stretching exercise. Sit down and stretch your legs straight. Use a towel or a rope to pull your feet inwards. Hold it for about 20 seconds and then release. Do this atleast 5 times to both your feet.
