The New Year is about to arrive and the air is thick with prospective resolutions. It’s common to make promises such as ‘this year I will shed a few pounds’ and ‘I will eat healthy this year’, but if you are a hard-core health enthusiast that won’t be enough for you! Here are some solid health trends to look out for if good health is anywhere on your list of priorities. Go on have a look!

Probiotics

Health Trends for 2018

The coming year is going to be all about probiotics. Here are some of the most healthy probiotic food items to dig in:

Honey

The latest honey batches are supposed to be rich in probiotics; so be sure to devour honey in 2018.

Chocolates

Same goes for chocolates! Probiotics will be added to chocolate bars as well as chocolate flavored supplements.

Tea

The tea next year is expected to contain heat-resistant probiotic strains and will be your ultimate antioxidant powerhouse.

Other Healthy Drinks

Plant-based waters such as maple, coconut, and aloe water deliver excellent flavors without tons of sugar and are extremely refreshing. Talking of refreshing drinks, watermelon juice is a great choice.

Finally, oat milk is going to be immensely popular in the upcoming year, thanks to its low dairy content and high health value.

What Not To Do In 2018 for Better Health

Health Trends for 201823

Here are some of the trends that will go extinct next year. Here’s what to avoid:

Extreme Dieting

Some of the previously popular diets are not going to be a part of 2018. These include dairy and meat free vegan diets as well as carb-cutting ketogenic diet; since they exclude crucial food groups from your diet.

Detoxifying Juices

Detox juices turned out to be some-what ineffective in claiming to clean the body toxins. Moreover, the weight loss that comes from using them is not sustainable either.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains rather high amount of saturated fat and is a big NO for 2018 as far as consumption is concerned. However, you can totally use it for beauty tricks.

Soy Milk

There is nothing quite wrong with it but it is definitely going to lose its luster to the new found variety of nut milks.

What To Do In 2018 for Better Health

Health Trends for 20182

Flexitarian Diet

Want to lose weight in 2018 without risking your health? Flexitarian diet is a plant-based food plan that allows meat on rare occasions so you can reap its health rewards too.

Ginger

This excellent root is going to be everywhere in 2018 with its characteristic flavor. Not only is it going to be in solid food but also in beverages. Ginger infusions and drinks will be in the market, not to mention ginger tea, which is an all-time soothing tonic for common cold and flu.

Root Vegetables

We are not just talking about carrots here. Other root vegetables, such as sweet potato, rich in vitamin A, are going to be around a lot next year.

Other Nut Milks

You must be curios what is going to replace or at least share the fame with soy-milk. Let us satiate your curiosity; for almond and cashew milk are going to make it big in 2018.

Not happy with your daily routine? Tired of doing the same things over and over? Do you seek shortcuts for problems? Is your mind always occupied? Do you want to change your lifestyle?

Well, if you want the answers to these questions you’ve come to the right place!

This article will tell you about some easy life hacks that will help you change your lifestyle for the better.

Track Your Sleeping Hours

The key to identifying if you are getting enough sleep’

Sleeping hours

By keeping a check on your sleeping hours, you can actually improve your punctuality skills. Making yourself track time can help you in all fields of life. And yes, if you have the right amount of sleep, you’ll feel absolutely wonderful throughout the day.

Sleep In a Dark Room

 ‘Sleeping in the dark will help you sleep early’

Sleep In a Dark Room

According to research*, a dark room should be preferred for sleeping because it helps you sleep rather efficiently. Melatonin, a hormone which helps regulate our sleeping patterns releases more in a dark environment, hence we sleep better.

Wake Up Early

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’

Wake Up Early

Try your best to sleep and wake up early. If you’re not an early riser, try to keep 4-5 alarms with a 5-10 minute interval. This will wake you up for sure. After all, it is a tried and tested method.

Include a Cardio Session

‘The best way to start your day is by exercise’

Include a Cardio Session

Do a cardio session early in the morning. According to a research, early morning workouts help you shed more fat and calories than any other part of the day. So, get your track suit and joggers ready, and plan a walking session for the next morning.

A Healthy Breakfast

‘A good breakfast will keep you charged at work’

A Healthy Breakfast

A bowl of cereal, two eggs or a cup of tea in the morning should be more than enough to kick start your day. To make it more interesting, you can always change your breakfast menus with different items, like fruit salads, fresh juices or smoothies. However, the main aim should be to have a calorie-sum breakfast.

Be Happy

‘Always keep a smile on your face’

 Be Happy

Keep smiling, it kills all the problems! The best things in life happen when you approach problems with a huge smile on your face. You might have heard the saying ‘God helps those, who help themselves.’ There’s a reason for that. If you love yourself, the problems you face shall go away eventually.

Replace Soda with Water

‘Soda – a definite no-no!’

Replace Soda with Water

Water is one of the best substitutes for carbonated drinks. They are just a waste of your money. You try them because they give you temporary solace, but in the long run they damage your lifestyle. Try to drink at least eight glasses of water in a day. It will not only help you feel charged, but also provide you other benefits as well.

Strive For Your Goals

‘Achieve what you plan to do’

 Strive For Your Goals

The ultimate sense of accomplishment is when you strive for the things you want and you achieve them. Plan goals which are realistic, and fire on all cylinders to cross the finish line. With a sense of belief and self-confidence, nothing will be able to stop you. According to research, people who tend to set short term goals in life are happier and more successful.

Aging is unavoidable. While we realize that getting old is inevitable, how we see this regular procedure depends enormously on our cultural and social impacts. We stress over how we’ll look, how our bodies will work, how our brains will disintegrate and how or where we will bite the dust. From numerous point of views as we get old we start turning out of one’s mind; in vocation, in our groups, even in our own families and this greatly affects women than men. We fear getting disconnected and discouraged, rather than encountering seniority as a festival; of our accomplishments and of learning gathered over a lifetime for a healthy life ahead.

Getting old doesn’t mean to let go of the hope, the enthusiasm and the ray of positivity. It’s all about having an urge to accept the life positively by thinking about the years that you’ve lived and anticipating the future. Let’s go through these three crucial steps to live your life to the fullest and look forward what life has to bring to you.

Have a Thorough Checkup

It’s absolutely unwise to be ignorant about the negative signs and symptoms that our body shows. Better to be assured. It might not be something serious, yet it might be something to consider seriously. The prior we address the risks, the sooner we can regard them and overcome. It is vital to differentiate between being hyper to the point of depression and being sensible. We ought to approach our physical and mental prosperity effectively rather than carelessly, and must take every precautionary step for an optimal health.

Eat Healthy Food

We are continually being advised what to eat and what not to eat or drink as we age. There has been a great deal of research done about how our bodies metabolize nourishment as we age and how cutting calories can add to better wellbeing and a more extended life. It is commonly recommended to limit salt intake, reduce sugar consumption, avoid foods that have high fat content, instead, have a healthy diet and stay hydrated. Carefully watch your eating regimen, along with it a lot of laughter and a bit of chocolate cake won’t hurt much.

Notice and Accept the Change

As you age, wrinkles and grey hair will appear anyway. Accept the change. Plastic surgeries, botox, treatments etc, whatever we do, we will in any case look our age. We must cherish our bodies, our appearance and how we look. At the end of the day what matters more is to be healthy and live a hearty life. An aged individual who is content from within, kind, thankful, healthy, positive, is much more youthful in spite of having those wrinkles and grey hair.

Love yourself, love your life. After all your body is the only place where you have to live.

Scream Your Heart Out! https://htv.com.pk/health/headline-scream-heart Tue, 12 Jan 2016 12:23:09 +0000 http://htv.com.pk/?p=14575

For the first time in the history of psychology there is a way to access feelings, hidden away, in a safe way and thus to reduce human suffering.

For the first time in the history of psychology there is a way to access feelings, hidden away, in a safe way and thus to reduce human suffering. It is, in essence, the first science of psychotherapy.” — Dr. Arthur Janov

Sometimes all you really need to do is… Scream! That too on top of your lungs like no one’s watching. People scream for several reasons, while being angry, upset, scared, or in pain (if you think of yourself as a rock star too). Screaming may be considered weird but, science now has justified it to be good to let your feelings flow and feel lighter. Let’s learn how.

Dr. Arthur Janov introduced Primal Therapy in the late 1960’s. It is a practice that permits the patient to confront their subdued feelings from any past injury head on and let those feelings go. This treatment is proposed to cure any dysfunctional behavior the patient might have that surfaced from this past injury. As a rule, Primal Therapy has lead Dr. Janov’s patients to shout towards the end of their session, however it was not part of the first method. Amid a gathering treatment session that was at a stop, Dr. Janov said that one of his patients, an apprentice he called Danny, recounted a story that enlivened him to execute a procedure that he never would have considered all alone.

Dr. Janov tells of a story which escalated his theory into a concrete practice.

During a lull in our gathering of a treatment session, he recounted to us a tale around a man named Ortiz who was as of now doing a follow up on the London stage in which he paraded around in diapers drinking containers of milk. All through his number, Ortiz is yelling, ‘Mama! Daddy! Mama! Daddy!’ as loud as possible. Toward the end of his demonstration, he vomits. Plastic bags are passed out, and the audience were requested to follow suit.”

It doesn’t end here, however. Dr. Janov said that his patient was very intrigued with that story, and that alone moved him to recommend something even he accepted to be somewhat basic.

“I requested he called out, ‘Mommy! Daddy!’ Danny cannot, saying that he couldn’t see the sense in such an infantile demonstration, and to be perfectly honest, neither would I be able to. Be that as it may, I held on, lastly, he gave in. As he started, he turned out to be detectably vexed. All of a sudden he was writhing on the floor in misery. His breathing was quick, convulsive. ‘Mommy! Daddy!’ left his mouth automatically in uproarious shrieks. He seemed, by all accounts, to be in a trance like state or sleep inducing state. The writhing offered approach to little shakings, lastly, he discharged a puncturing, deathlike shout that shook the dividers of my office. The whole scene endured just a couple of minutes, and neither Danny nor I had any thought what had happened. Whatever he could say a while later was: ‘I made it! I don’t recognize what, however I can feel.”

In spite of the fact that the starting goal of this specific practice wasn’t to get the patient to shout, more than once did his Primal Therapy sessions end with the patient shouting and feeling lighter, resuscitated, and soothed of burdens that were holding them down in life.

Try It Yourself!

Step 1: Be alone — If you live in a place that you can’t be alone, it might be a good idea to talk to your family or roommates and explain to them what you’re about to do and make sure they’re okay with it. If you’re good to go, move on to step 2.

Step 2: Lie Down — Lie down on a yoga mat on your back and place a pillow underneath your head. If you don’t own a yoga mat, you can use a rug or even a soft blanket.

Step 3: Think — Think of things that have hurt you or made you angry. It can be anything from your childhood or even something that happened recently to make yourself cry, if you’re not already crying or upset. You could even scream “Mommy! Daddy!” just like Dr. Janov’s patients did to get yourself started.

Step 4: Scream — Don’t hold anything back; cry and scream as loud as you can. You can also pound your fists on the ground, or just lie there and scream at the top of your lungs, whatever gets you to be an opera singer.

After this, you should return your breathing to a normal and steady pace. You should feel lighter, like a weight has been lifted off of you. If not, you can always try other methods to relieve your heart.
