Here we tried to mention a few regular but important best life tricks to boost our metabolism. This Pandemic teaching us how poor is our body metabolism!!
The body’s system may be a complex and precise function that recognizes any foreign invasion by any substance, bacteria, or virus which will cause disease or harm the host in any way.
When a far off substance invades the body, an inflammatory condition leads to the tissues affected. A prime example would be when a patient has tissue transplanted from another person, living or dead into their body.
Their system will reject the implanted tissue, and so as to stop this, they’re going to need to get on specific medications for the remainder of their life to try to prevent this rejection.
One of the Best life tricks Eat high fiber to stay healthy
Fiber can alleviate symptoms of digestive tract disorders and diseases like constipation, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, and colon cancer. Suffers of diverticulitis can also benefit from a high fiber diet.
People who have diabetics and other blood sugar-related diseases also find it easier to cope if they consume enough fiber. Regardless, it can benefit from eating enough high fiber foods.
High Fiber Foods Helps You To Lose Weight
People who eat a lot of fiber report that they find it easier to lose weight. The diet fits right into their lifestyle and it promotes healthy eating. Unlike other diets that require that you starve yourself and feel hungry all the time, a high fiber diet only asks that you eat low-fat high fiber foods. Pandemic reminds us we need to follow some best life tricks to stay healthy.
Following benefits to eating high fiber: relief or prevention of constipation decreased risk of some types of cancer, decreased cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, reduced risk of coronary disease, blood sugar control, reduced risk of type II Diabetes, and decreased risk of obesity.
Eat healthily and reduce fats with fat, best life tricks
For years, the whole world became a fatphobic. In retrospect that seems a little amusing as it is one of the three categories of macronutrients.
Of course, we need fat. The problem is we have consumed the wrong types of fats. A large portion of fat consumption in our country was coming from extremely dangerous fats for many years.
Consciousness has been rising as to the difference between healthy fat and unhealthy fat. In general, fats from fish, flaxseed oil, butter and nuts, hemp seed, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and eggs from chickens fed a diet high in greens and insects are all good food sources of healthy fats.
Healthy fats reduced inflammation in your body, improve blood clotting, create healthy cell membranes, lower bad lipids, decreased artery thickening, reduce the risk of obesity, and may inhibit cancer cell growth.
This is just the beginning of the list of benefits in choosing healthy fats over unhealthy fats. Avocados are one of my favorite sources of healthy fats. Which is yours?
Drink healthy water
Here is another topic that deserves a whole book. For 10 to 15 years a fetish of drinking bottled water developed. Unfortunately, the very bottles we were drinking the water from have now contaminated our estuaries, streams, ponds, and oceans in a very serious way.
In addition, chemicals from manufacturing processes and chemicals purposefully added to our water supply have created an increasingly dangerous water supply. Choose a reusable bottle made up of secure materials like steel or glass.
Consider a water filtration system for your home, at least for the water you drink. Many people advocate drinking eight glasses of water each day. To be honest, there’s no literature supporting this recommendation.
The renal modification of fluid status and the thirst mechanism of our bodies are exquisitely sensitive. Be liberal with a beverage but don’t force yourself to drink quite you are feeling is important. Just confirm your water is healthy and protect our surroundings while you’re doing it.
okay, here’s the raw truth about me. I hate going to the gym. I get bored walking on a little treadmill like a mouse. I admire people that find this to be enjoyable and to be sure I have had workouts that were fun.
However, I really like to urge my exercise by doing activities that are fun. Take a walk and look at the flowers. Join a sports team and see what you can do. Get up off the couch and stop watching TV.
Play with your children on the floor. Stretch yourself a little bit every day. Just move. Your body will love you and it will be fun.
Abolish refined carbohydrates
I call these the “white foods”. Most of the foods you can think of that are white are not good for you. Bleached flour, sugar, white pasta, etc. etc. etc. in this category I might also include candies and other high sugar products.
These are extremely bad for your body in the short term and in the long-term. I’m not just talking about weight gain or control of calories. I’m talking about the hormonal and chemical alterations that cause in your body which lead to lifelong decreased health. Just say no.
Limit Salt Intake
Actually, salt is an important bodily mineral. We need salt each and every day. The problem is, in an effort to get people to eat the processed foods that are sold everywhere in this country a tremendous amount of salt is added to this food to improve flavor and increase the amount of food you will eat.
Even if you never add salt to your diet, you’re probably getting far more salt than is suggested for each day. For many people, this is not such a big deal.
But if you have a family history, personal history, or are at risk of high blood pressure, this one activity change can be lifesaving.
By decreasing your blood pressure you may decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke. That is a big deal for just a small pinch.
Stop unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive drinking: Now, if you are a smoker or you drink excessively, you probably know you should stop.
I just added this one to give you a little support and encouragement in making the change. There are many people and programs out there to help you.
Pick up the phone, fire up the computer, call a friend, open your heart, and have courage. Enough said.
Sleep 7 to 8 hours a day
The importance of sleep among humans has to be emphasized especially now that people are getting less and less of it. With the busy schedules that each human being has, most of them sleep less than the required 8 hours every day. Sleep debt causes physical, emotional, and mental fatigue.
The importance of sleep must be stressed because a lack of sleep causes an individual to be impatient, irritable, moody, and unable to concentrate.
Because the body lacks sleep, a person becomes too tired to do things that he/she is tasked to do. Drowsiness during the day is also the main cause of sleep deprivation.
Lack of sleep affects the immune system of the body. A person with chronic sleep deprivation has less white blood cells count.
White blood cells are known soldiers of the body which defends the body against foreign materials and infectious diseases.
The body also needs sleep in its growth. Young adults and children need deep sleep to grow. It is said that it is during deep sleep that the growth hormones are released.
There is increased production of cells and reduced breakdown of proteins when a person sleeps.
Optimal social and emotional functioning are also maintained during waking hours because the parts of the brain in charge of controlling social and emotional interactions are given a chance to rest through deep sleep.
Take quality supplements
One of the most extensive studies on the subject was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2002.
The findings of this study revealed that it is prudent for adults to take a multivitamin every day.
There are multiple reasons for this including the decreased nutritional content of our food, the increased processing of our food supply, the substitution of healthy foods with unhealthy foods and the list goes on.
The USDA surveyed 16,000 Americans and located that not one person obtained 100% of essential nutrients like magnesium, vitamin D, and zinc. Similarly, children and adolescents didn’t obtain enough essential nutrients like folate, vitamin C, and calcium.
The results are in and the answer is yes.
Yes, you need supplementation with quality nutritional supplements.
I reflect on the conversations I’ve had within the last 48 hours. It seems that each one of the people I spoke with was under some kind of stress. We have not created a society or an environment where serenity is valued. If you’ve got a stressful life my recommendation is to insert into your day what I call “peace breaks”.
These are little moments of solitude. It can happen in your car, it can happen within the bathroom, it can happen once you take a brief walk around the block.
Taking a couple of moments to let your vital sign fall, your mind relaxes and to consciously put your attention on peacefulness and releasing any thoughts.
Doing this 2 to 3 times a day, especially right when you wake up and right before you go to sleep, can change your life dramatically. Take a moment to pencil this in!
Limit screen time is one of the best life tricks
The statistics on screen time (you know, computers, TVs, video games) are astounding. So here is a challenge for you. Consider turning off all screens for a week. No, not just the kids. All of you.
For families caught within the trap of stress and disconnect, this one activity can renew relationships, inspire creativity, and alter your life. I would love for you to report your experience.
Be cognizant of children
33% of children born today are expected to develop diabetes. The future of our world is our children. Your behavior in front of children is so powerful. I
f you would like children to measure a healthy life, be an example of health ahead of them.
Don’t reward with candy. Reward with time, with reading, amorously and a spotlight, and with other “things”.
It is time for our culture to urge out of the habit of creating candy the reward for behavior. Stand for healthy habits in schools.
Be a mentor
So many people I do know have come from hard beginnings to become truly magnificent people.
The commonality altogether of them is that they had a minimum of one person in their childhood who really cared. Be that person for someone.
Vote with your money every day: Read food labels and buy foods that don’t come in packages (apples, etc) as often as possible. Every single time you buy healthy food you’re voting “yes”.
Every time you buy chips or unhealthy foods you are voting “no”. If voting is that the basis of our democracy, your ‘purchase votes’ are the idea of our capitalist society. As they say, vote well and vote often!!
Floss twice a day
Most folks know that flossing our teeth can prevent tartar build-up and gingivitis. Not everyone knows, however, that lack of flossing may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
One study revealed that patients who flossed their teeth a minimum of every other day reduced their serum CRP (a risk factor for cardiovascular disease) to normal levels within six months.
Harvard Medical School released a study indicating one of the key factors to longevity was flossing. In fact, they stated flossing could lower your Real Age by the maximum amount as 6.4 years.
Not a bad investment of time, I would say. And the side effect of a stunning smile may be a real winner!
Eat breakfast and eat a low glycemic, Mediterranean style food pattern
It is well documented that eating a healthy breakfast (low glycemic, high nutrient foods) helps maintain hunger levels, sugar levels, and healthy eating throughout the day.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2008 compared low fat, low glycemic, and Mediterranean diets and found the latter two to be superior in the ability to lose and maintain weight.
Keeping a steady blood sugar throughout the day by eating 5 to 6 small, low glycemic, Mediterranean style meals appears to be a delicious and healthy way to maintain your physique and avoid disease. Give it a try!!
Find passion in your life is one of the best life tricks
Many people think their life is “not as important”. I believe what you create with your life is your individual expression of the divine (or whatever paradigm suits you). It all counts.
The way you smile or don’t, the way you open your eyes with love when your friends and family enter the room.
The way you express with your words and your actions, the passion with which you express in your job and your hobbies.
The friends you choose, the social circles you involve yourself with, and the love you bring to each and every relationship is the sum total of that which matters in your life.
You don’t have to be president, you don’t have to run the show, you don’t have to be a CEO to matter greatly.
What matters is the love you bring to your life. Express your life with passion and know that it’s received with enthusiasm. You matter more than you will ever know.
Periodically challenge yourself
Sometimes it can feel really wonderful when life is on autopilot. But without an occasional challenge, be it mental, spiritual, emotional, or physical, life can get a bit boring.
What have you wanted to do in life that you just haven’t taken the time for? Is it a trip? Riding in a hot air balloon? Taking a challenge in your relationship? Reading a new book or taking a new class?
Stepping just a little bit out of your comfort zone can make life exciting and full. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
Bring your spouse along if he/she will come. Make it a family affair. Enjoin your friends. Create more excitement in the world. You know, you only pass this way one time.
Create a habit
The other of the latest challenges is the steady hand of habit. Studies show that people who eat roughly the same foods each day have a much easier time of it. Creating habits can open space and energy for creativity.
What part of your life feels confusing and out of control right now? What habits could you put in to balance this chaos? By creating a lifetime of habits, you furthermore may make space for challenges and inventiveness. Do this for yourself!!
Have a healthy social circle
I am giving you an opportunity to take stock of your social circle. Studies tell us your income is most likely the average of the 5 people you are closest to. I believe this goes for more than just money.
The belief systems you develop are deeply influenced by the people in your life. Who in your life supports your most deeply felt beliefs? Who in your life moves you far away from your emotional, financial, spiritual, and physical center?
How much time does one spend with these people? Are there people in your life at all? If your only circle of friends is the people you work with every day, it may be time to open and widen the circle a little.
You don’t have to make radical changes: just choose one new activity where you will meet people that are interesting and new.
Make one new friend and cultivate that friendship. Choose a friend who is loving and supportive, who fills your life with positive words and be that friend to others. Studies show that lifespan is greatly influenced by the company you keep (or lack thereof).
Just as money, food, housing, etc are important to your life, so much more are the friendships. Step out of your comfort zone and make a new friend this week. You may both benefit greatly.
Laugh a lot
Truly, when is the last time you belly laughed? I mean the kind of laugh that rocks your body, that rattles your teeth, that causes tears to stream from your face? If it has been a while, perhaps it is time to lighten up.
We now know that laughing can increase your blood flow by 20%-this may be why it is so great for you! Look for opportunities to laugh. Go to a comedy instead of that horror show. Make your family and friends laugh.
Play a gentle, loving trick. Look at the situation just a little differently. If you have a hard time getting started, get tickets to a comedy club where a lighthearted comic is playing. Spending the evening laughing with your friends may put a whole new veneer on your week.
Here are some great ideas to create a smile
Give a gift, write an unexpected and heartfelt note of acknowledgment, invite a new friend to coffee, babysit small children, volunteer to make someone’s day a little brighter, express gratitude where ever you can.
And here is the best one I heard, “Plant a seed in your eye.”
There are many ways to give in life, but I am speaking specifically about volunteering. In this respect, I am speaking of an act or donation that is mainly anonymous and brings worth, peace, and love to the world.
Why would you want to do this?
Here is a partial list of the reasons and benefits: make new friends, build confidence and self-esteem, see more of your community and the world.
Gain important skills and experience, relieve stress, fight boredom, spend time doing what you really care about.
Expand your education or career, experienced the feeling of being needed and important, get active and healthy, use your mind-body and creativity, experience a sense of satisfaction.
Make a difference in the world, have fun, acquire training, experience a sense of reward, and mainly just have fun.
Give them a ring and find out what their needs are. Other activities in which to volunteer include the venues of health, children, the arts, environment, community, the elderly, domestic and international needs, and other venues too lengthy to list.
It is truly exhilarating to be surrounded by giving, loving people within the act of improving the planet for those around you. I highly recommend it.
Be a positive role model
One of the things I really love about studying concepts of leadership is that we are ALL leaders. We all lead by example.
If you are at a party with a bowl of chips and a plate of veggies, reaching for the veggies is a powerful statement to all those around you that you care about your health.
You may not think this one action is important, but especially over time, your loved ones will begin to emulate your behavior.
Drip by drip, the ocean fills. Action by action, you can empower your loved ones to live the healthy life they deserve. This is leadership in action!!
So, here is my list of the best life tricks. Post this somewhere you will see it often. Put these concepts into practice in your life.
Find one small way to make the world a little better today. If we all do this, we’ve created a movement of health, love, and joy. Be a part of the movement today!
