									HealthYour health should be the number one priority in your life. Health
is the general condition of a person in all aspects. It is also a level
of functional and/or metabolic efficiency of an organism, often
implicitly human. The physical environment is perhaps the most important
factor that should be considered when classifying the health status of an
individual. This includes factors such as clean water and air, safe
houses, communities and roads all contribute to good health.Jogging:For
heart health, the benefits of jogging is no need to be doubted. However,
to reduce fat and weight, it is not effective. Why is hard to loose
weight by jogging?Here is an explanation of why a body remain fat despite
jogging every day.Constant movement during jogging including aerobic
activity can strengthen the heart and respiratory muscles. The impact on
health is that breathing becomes more healthy and cardiac pressure will
go down so that the risk of hypertension decreases.However, to burn fat,
jogging is less effective. The body will only process the fat into energy
if the calories needs obtained from sugar and carbohydrates are not
sufficient.One way to reduce fat is through exercise. Jogging is an
exercise which requires lots of energy, so many people do it with the
expectation of energy reserves in the form of fat will burned more
efficiently. In fact, some people fail to lose weight despite jogging
every day."The body is like the best machine that constantly adapts to
anything. The more often you jog, the body will be more prepared for the
next jog."Jogging which is done frequently will only cause energy
metabolism becomes more efficient. Adaptation which is performed by the
body reduce the energy needed so not a lot of calories are burned.Besides
not being effective in loosing weight, jogging is also not good for your
joints. When you jog, the joints will have to take 2.5 times the weight
so vulnerable to injury.The joints which are most prone to acute pain
attack due to jogging, are the ankles and the knees. If often experience
repeated pressure, these joints wear out faster.Jogging is always
considered as an exercise that can increase your metabolism and effective
for weight loss.5 Signs of a Healthy Heart:If your heart stops beating
for just a few minutes, followed by the stop of blood circulation, than
your valuable life will end. That is why the prevention of heart disease
and blood vessels are very important and highly stressed. Generally there
are five vital signs of a healthy heart, which are:1. CholesterolPretend
that the LDL or bad cholesterol is a fire and HDL or good cholesterol as
a fireman. "A good firefighter is usually able to prevent long term
damage."The higher the HDL cholesterol level, the lower the risk of
ateroklerosis occurrence. For healthy heart, the bad cholesterol's target
is no more than 130 mg / dl and HDL should be higher than 40 mg / dl. HDL
cholesterol levels tend to increase with exercise, lose weight, and
eating lots of fiber2. Blood pressureIf left unchecked in recent years,
high blood pressure can damage arteries throughout the body so that the
blood vessel wall will be thickened and rigid and clogged so blood flow
to vital organs are blocked. Optimal blood pressure are lower than 120/80
mmHg.Variation of various foods with different combination's of the right
nutrients will be beneficial to blood pressure. Various studies have also
shown an effective stress reduction also lowers blood pressure. Spanish
researchers say, the consumption of aspirin every day also decreased the
systolic pressure of 6.8 mmHg and 4.6 mmHg diastolic pressure.3.
HeartbeatLife is not in your hands, but in your heart. Knowing the number
of heartbeats per minute (resting heart rate) is one way to predict the
age. In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine stated,
a man who has a resting heart rate above 75 beats per minute (bpm) have
three times greater risk of heart attack. Normal pulse is 65 bpm."When
you do a cardio workout with low intensity and add a high intensity every
two weeks, the heart rate per minute will be reduced." Do exercise at
least 30 minutes with 60-80 percent of the maximum amount of heart
rate.4. Fasting blood sugarFasting blood sugar levels is a sign of
whether there is any risk of diabetes. The higher your blood sugar
levels, the greater the risk of developing diabetes. "People with
diabetes have a greater risk of heart disease, kidney, and eye
disorders."To reduce levels of fasting blood sugar, we need to increase
the body's ability to use blood sugar, or in other words to increase
insulin sensitivity. The best way to achieve this is to reduce weight.5.
C-reactive proteinC-reactive proteins or CRP is a plasma protein produced
by the liver in response to infection, injury, and inflammatory
processes. High levels of CRP indicate inflammation in the body. Because
heart disease is due to inflammation in the arterial wall, CRP can be
used as a common marker of heart disease risk.Elevated levels of CRP are
usually accompanied by increased cholesterol. A high CRP level, more than
1 milligram per liter, also associated with an increased risk of prostate
cancer. CRP measurement is done by taking blood from the elbow or the
back of your palms.To Improve Sleep:1. Sprinkle just-washed sheets and
pillowcases with lavender water. The scent has been shown in studies to
promote relaxation, which can lead to better sleep.2. Buy a new pillow.
Katz says that studies show that pillows with an indent in the center can
enhance sleep quality and reduce neck pain. Also, try a "cool" pillow --
one containing either all-natural fibers or a combination of sodium
sulfate and ceramic fibers that help keep your head cool.3. Eat a handful
of walnuts before bed. You'll be giving yourself a boost of fiber and
essential fatty acids along with the amino acid tryptophan -- a natural
sleep-inducer.To Improve Stress Control:1. Give your partner a hug every
day before work. Studies show this simple act can help you remain calm
when chaos ensues during your day, Katz says.2. Have a good cry. It can
boost your immune system, reduce levels of stress hormones, eliminate
depression, and help you think more clearly.3. Twice a day, breathe
deeply for three to five minutesTo Improve Nutrition:1. Buy whole foods -
- whether canned, frozen, or fresh from the farm -- and use them in place
of processed foods whenever possible.2. Reject foods and drinks made with
corn syrup, a calorie-dense, nutritionally empty sweetener that many
believe is worse for the body than sugar, says Katz.3. Start each dinner
with a mixed green salad. Not only will it help reduce your appetite for
more caloric foods, but it also will automatically add veggies to your
meal.To Improve Physical Fitness:1. Do a squat every time you pick
something up. Instead of bending over in the usual way, which stresses
the lower back, bend your knees and squat. This forces you to use your
leg muscles and will build strength.2. Every time you stop at a traffic
light (or the bus does), tighten your thighs and butt muscles and release
as many times as you can. (Don't worry, no one will see it!) This will
firm leg and buttock muscles, improve blood flow -- and keep you mildly
amused!3. Whenever you're standing on a line, lift one foot a half-inch
off the ground. The extra stress on your opposite foot, ankle, calf and
thigh, plus your buttocks, will help firm and tone muscles. Switch feet
every few minutes.
