Why is being fit important?

Why is being fit important?

You’d have heard a lot of personal trainers and other fitness professionals saying that you need to be ‘fit’ and ‘healthy’. We know that fitness isn’t just a one-dimensional concept. Being ‘fit’ can take the form of:

  • Cardiovascular fitness,
  • Muscle strength and endurance,
  • Flexibility.

You can be fit in one of these areas or all three of them. The more areas that you excel in, the better it is for you. But WHY is being fit important?

Better-looking body

First up being fit ensures that you have a great-looking body:

  • Cardiovascular exercise – such as spinning and running on the treadmill – helps you to lose weight, and
  • Weightlifting will help you tone your body up.

Many women that we speak to say that they won’t ever lift weights because this will make them bulky like a man. If a woman wanted to become bulky, she could, however normal weight training won’t get women to look like men. Weight training helps strengthen bones and prevent the development of diseases such as osteoporosis. – if you need help with this, consult a qualified personal trainer who will assist you.

Boosted immunity

There are many diseases out there nowadays. Medical technology has progressed to such a stage that there is a pill to fight nearly all of these diseases. Although this is fantastic, the problem is that people are quick to take a pill for everything, even though the better course of action is to let the body fight off the infection itself. The result? The population has become drug-resistant which means that the medicine that is available doesn’t do what it is supposed to. In fact, it has become largely ineffectual.

The other result is that our immune systems have become weaker and, thus, more susceptible to infection. Think about the immune system as if it were a muscle. As a muscle becomes stronger when you work it out, so too does the immune system become stronger as it works. So if you don’t let your immune system do its job, it will become weaker. Exercise produces a change in antibodies as well as white blood cells (WBC) which are the immune cells of the body which fight disease.

Decreased risk of disease

When you are fit and healthy, your body functions optimally and your organs function as they should. The result of this is that:

  • You’ll have a decrease risk of heart disease,
  • You’ll be less pre-disposed to colds and flu, and
  • Your risk of diabetes will decrease.

But don’t think that as exercise and being fit has a positive correlation with staving off disease that you should over exercise. Too much exercise is a bad thing as you could end up with stress fractures and muscle tears as a result.

Less stress

Our bodies release stress hormone (cortisol) when we’re anxious. We become hyperalert and go into Fight or Flight Syndrome. Biologically speaking, this reaction exists to prevent us from entering into dangerous situations, such as being in close proximity to a lion. The release of this hormone results in:

  • Increased blood pressure and blood sugar, as well as
  • Suppressing the immune system.

This means that the more stress we put ourselves under, the longer our blood pressure will remain elevated. In addition, our immune systems will remain suppressed for longer. As a result, we become more at risk for diseases such as hypertension.

So you’ve seen why becoming fit is important. What are you waiting for? Head on down to the gym now and start training!

Simple and Easy Personal Hygiene Tips for Women

Simple and Easy Personal Hygiene Tips for Women

We’ve been reading and learning about this from school days. Perhaps even before that when our parents used to keep teaching us daily hygiene habits. Yet, as we grow older, these habits tend to take a backseat, thanks to hectic life schedules. Finishing a project on time starts taking priority over bathing.

Well, it’s natural and, we tell you, even okay sometimes to skip a habit or two. All that’s needed is that you understand and, most important, value the importance of personal hygiene in your daily life. And that’s why we thought of refreshing those basic points we all learned in our childhood.

Top 10 Good Personal Hygiene Tips for Women

Tip #1: Bathe daily

Whether you have a project deadline to meet or need to take your kid to the hospital, bathing shouldn’t take a backseat. Your to-do list is never-ending, but there’s a to-do list for your body too – the body that’s your very own. If you can shower in the morning, too good but if you can’t, do it at your convenient time (preferably not in the evenings to avoid catching a cold). But do it must.

Tip #2: Change your clothes daily

It’s a good idea to only wear clothes that are washed and clean. Make it a habit to change your clothes each time you return from playing a sport (if you follow that as a hobby) or after you’re done cooking and other household chores (because you’d tend to sweat a lot). Besides that, avoid re-wearing the same pair of clothes the next day. The same holds true for your bed sheets and pillow cases too. You sleep on them so they touch your body. Change them regularly.

Tip #3: Wash your hands more often

Now we’d been taught to wash our hands before every meal. But we women are dealing with so much throughout the day, all with our hands that the new rule is to keep washing them regularly. Say, you wash the dishes, keep handwash liquid handy near the sink. Or, you finish working on the laptop, wash your hands before you get along with other chores. Don’t forget to clean your hands after you pay money for your groceries or for anything else (remind yourself how many people would’ve touched that currency!)

Tip #4: Always carry your personal hygiene products with you

These may include hand sanitizer, mouthwash for after meals, a small deodorant, tissues or wet wipes, sanitary napkin, or anything else that you think needs to belong to your purse/backpack when you step out. You need your personal hygiene care products at all times; it needs to travel with you wherever you go.

Tip #5: Take care of your feet

Foot hygiene is important for all, but particularly for working women who’re in their shoes all day long. Your shoes and feet might smell when you return home. It’s normal but can be controlled. Always wash your feet, preferably under running water, when you return from work. Pat them dry before you put your home slip-ons. Also, alternate between different pairs of shoes to go to work everyday. Let the ones you wore today out in the balcony to get some air overnight. Wearing socks with close-toed shoes is always a good idea to absorb sweat and prevent stinking.

Tip #6: Sharing is good but not with personal hygiene items

Your toothbrush, soap, razor, hairbrush, towels, and handkerchiefs are only yours to keep. Never share these items with a friend or even family. Likewise, avoid borrowing such stuff from people around you. They are easy carriers of infections of all kinds. Moreover, all your efforts to maintain your personal hygiene could go down the drain in an instant.

Tip #7: Change your sanitary napkins regularly

This too works like bathing. You put on one and then you tend to forget about it during the day with work, kids, and other 10 things on your mind. When you retire to bed at night, you realize you’ve been on the same napkin since morning! Not only is it bad for your hygiene, it also increases chances of infection. Not to forget, you’re increasing your chances of spilling and staining too. Always change your napkin/tampon in 4-5 hours, depending on the flow.

Tip #8: Don’t overuse beauty products

Makeup and other beauty items are meant to enhance your natural beauty but overdoing it can actually harm your skin. Research proves that too much makeup can make your skin dry or oily (depending on the type of skin you have) and may even result in breakouts or acne. Always use minimal, natural-looking makeup. Also, if you do get acne for some reason, don’t ignore or delay treating it. It’s important not just for your looks but also for your facial hygiene.

Tip #9: Long nails look lovely but need care

Nails are a woman’s precious accessory. That’s perfectly fine as long as you take good care of them. Long nails are easy storehouses for dirt and germs. Always keep your nails trimmed to a comfortable length and scrape off the dirt underneath regularly with an under-nail scraper. You can also clean it manually with soap by paying special attention to these areas while washing your hands and toes.

Tip #10: Wear comfortable undies

We’re literally spoiled for choice with tons of designs and varieties available in the market today. Nevertheless, you know your body and comfort style, and that comes first before any other style. Always choose cotton undies rather than synthetic fibers. There’s no harm going for trendy designs as long as they’re good material for your body and make you last in them all day. Needless to say, wash them daily, always with hand. Don’t put them in your laundry for machine wash.

Takeaways

Your personal hygiene is as important as any other chore in your daily schedule. Make adequate time for it because only when you’re fit and healthy, you can carry out all your other tasks to perfection.
