Before you sign up for the health insurance policy, make sure you read
all the terms and conditions. This would help you understand what coverage you
can avail of and what you cannot. Some medical conditions, which you may have

policy wouldn’t give you coverage for the same, so check with your insurance

most fearful of losing sight, and for good reason, because we experience a
great deal of the world around us with our eyes first. Listed below are some
eye care guidelines to bear in mind.
Although it is true that foods packed with Vitamin A can
keep at bay several discomforts and conditions like drying of the eyes and
night blindness, they are not a remedy by themselves, but you ought to include
them in your daily meal plan nonetheless. Certain minerals are also believed to
keep eyes healthy. Zinc, for instance, has been shown to reduce the risk of
age-related vision changes. Antioxidants also help delay decline of vision
related to aging.
Prevent injuries to the eye
There is a substantial risk of harming your eyes in
recreational settings or when you’re carrying out activities that produce
air-borne debris. It is crucial that you remain fully aware to your tasks and
your surroundings, and wear protective glasses which cover the eye from the
front and from the sides.

Daily exposure to UV rays can eventually result in cataracts
and macular degeneration. You should wear sunglasses so you can minimize
sunlight exposure and reduce the likelihood of your eyes aging prematurely.
Select sunglasses that protect from UV A and B.

ages of 40 and 65 and every 1-2 years if you are above 65. If you have …
There are many ways you can de-stress your home quickly. For
example, use calming colors throughout your home. Calming colors such as blue,
green, and beige can offer a more calming effect on your life. According to
psychologists, when bright and intense colors are present throughout your home,
it can change your mood pretty quickly to such a mood as anger and can actually
quicken your pulse and raise your blood pressure.
Next de-clutter your home. When you have tons of
“stuff” all of the place, even if the room is “clean”, it
can actually create more stress in your life. Make your most common living
spaces free of extra clutter and save the extra little things for other rooms
in your home.
Third, add lots of houseplants to your living space.
Houseplants are great ways to bring the outdoors in. By using more of nature
colors and by incorporating more of the outdoors, you are creating a naturally
calming atmosphere. There is just something about nature that is calming.
Create your happy and relaxing zone in your house. Whether
you designate a chair in the corner, or a lounge outside, make sure you have
your place you can go to relax at home. This way when things get hectic you
have your escape to rejuvenate!
Make your bed every day. I didn’t realize how this can
actually make you feel great just by simply spending the extra 3 minutes a day
making your bed. When things look put together especially in your bedroom, you
don’t have to worry about it and can more effectively deal with everything else
going on in your life.
Create a “catch all” place in your home. Designate
a place in your home, whether in the kitchen, entryway, office, or wherever
that you put a …
Are you healthy? I’m
not talking about how much you weigh or what size you are because health goes
way beyond that. Yes, it’s true that our weight plays an important role in
determining our health. For instance, if we happen to weigh a great deal above
what our weight for height and age should be, then we are putting undue strain
on our joints and organs. In saying that, you can be mildly overweight but
still be healthy. The same goes for fitness. I have several friends that are
fit, but they are not healthy! The sooner we realise this, the better.
We need to have good
health because without it, we are more vulnerable to dis-ease. Diseases such as
diabetes, high cholesterol, depression, ADD and cancer are becoming more
prevalent in our world and they can affect anyone. Just because someone looks
healthy, doesn’t mean they are. From the moment we are born, we are slowly
dying! Doesn’t it make sense to look after our bodies and our minds so we can
make the most of the time we have?
We all know that to
have health we need to consume good food and water, do some physical
activities, get enough sleep, have a balanced work life and be able to relax.
Yes, we all know what we need to do, but we just don’t do it. Why? Because we
haven’t programmed our mind to do it. The human mind is more powerful than any
health program or diet. Dieticians and doctors can tell us what to eat but
unless we include our mind, you will not achieve lasting results to get
healthy. Our mind needs to be trained to send proper signal so that we
automatically reach for the right food or perform the required …
You could think of
your health and wellness like a bank account, your own personal bank account to
be more exact. You can make deposits and you can make withdrawals. If you
continue to make deposits over time you will end up with a healthy balance,
have a body you are proud to live in and reap the rewards of peak health and
If you continue to
make withdrawals at some point your account will become overdrawn and you could
find yourself on the sharp end of poor health which can in the short term lead
to a lower quality of life and in the long term to disease and a shortened
As it takes time to
build this bank account it is all about the small deposits you make on a daily
basis. Each healthy macro-nutrient balanced meal (protein, carbohydrates and
fat) and each proper exercise session (where you are working your muscles
properly) will add to your account balance.
Think of this as a
journey – and a journey is made up of hundreds of small steps rather than being
a one time event. It is the little things you do and do not do on a daily basis
that add up and make a difference. Not a small difference either – but a really
big difference over time.
It is easy to ignore
habits that you know are not helping you to reach your long-term goals. We get
busy and we get lazy and we just continue down the same old path because it is
easier to do so. Change is hard so we tend to put it on the back burner. But as
the years pass those add up and combine to work against our health.
