8 Amazing Health Benefits Of Homesteading

Monday, December 17th, 2018
homestead

In case that you haven’t heard of homesteading before – it is a lifestyle that is based on self-sustainability. The idea revolves around a farming system called subsistence agriculture. Basically, you grow your own food and preserve it in your home. It is also related to producing craftwork, textile, and clothes either for the inhabitants or for the purposes of selling.

The essential benefit of homesteading is that it offers a life that is a lot healthier than living in the more urban areas. People in the city are generally unaware of how unhealthy their lives are until they step out of that world and try out something different. All that air polluted by factories and vehicles, unhealthy fast food chains, advertisements that present a “perfect life” that is an unattainable illusion, and so on.

8 Tips on Staying Active at Work

Friday, December 14th, 2018

1. Take Timed Breaks

We’re all guilty of it. You’re focused on the task at hand, completely engrossed in your latest project and you don’t realize how much time goes by. That is until you can’t turn your neck, your back is stiff, and you feel your shoulders slouching. Don’t let too much time pass without some form of movement. Set a timer on your phone, computer, or smartwatch that gets you up and moving every 15-30 minutes. Even if you have to walk laps around your cubicle or take a stroll to the bathroom, any movement is better than none. Fitness trackers are great for this too. Most are equipped with alerts that tell you when you’ve been sedentary for too long. Pay attention to these queues. It’s your body’s way of telling you that you need to get moving.

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

You might not be aware of this – but when it comes to your diet – even the smallest things can really add up to make a world of difference. Most people, when they hear the word “diet” assume that it requires radical changes to their lifestyles and misery-inducing food restrictions. However, the reality is quite different, because it’s far more effective to make small changes, instead of aiming for a major lifestyle overhaul.

Stop Eating Before You Feel ‘Full’

The most basic thing you can do is to try and follow “Hara Hachi Bu” – and don’t worry – while the phrase might seem complicated at first, it is actually an old Japanese saying, which roughly translates to “stomach 80% full.”

The term refers to an ancient way of eating, practiced mainly by the residents of Okinawa for centuries at this point.

Even though it might be difficult to quantify what 80% actually is, the simpler way of putting this in practice would be this – stop eating when you’re no longer feeling hungry. It’s quite simple when you take a second to think about it. (more…)

6 Sensible Tips for Australians Going to a Pool Party This Summer

Monday, November 19th, 2018
pool fitness

We all love to swim. Swimming is a great way to get exercise and stay fit. While it might not make you swole, it will definitely burn some calories and is great for prehab, rehab, and recovery days. Today, our Australian correspondent wants to issue this PSA (Public Swole Announcement?) about keeping your pool safe during the upcoming Aussie summer.

The summer season, which takes place from December to February, will be upon Australia very soon. And it’s hard to think of a better way to welcome summer and to beat the country’s notorious heat than by taking a refreshing dip in the pool. Sensibility may be well out the window when it’s time to dive, splash around, and have fun by the poolside.

But if one is not as careful as they should be, something dangerous might happen in the water or in near proximity to it. From 2017 to 2018, the Royal Life Saving Drowning Report recorded 249 drowning-related deaths and 551 hospitalizations due to non-fatal drowning incidents in Australia. Although this is a 14% decrease from the figures tallied in the previous year, it serves as a call for Australians to be extra mindful of their environment when it’s time to go swimming. 

To make sure that your fellow swimmers remain safe, healthy, and happy when they come by your home for a dip, do observe the following health and safety tips at the poolside.
