It was supposed to be about the gym, but unfortunately I got a cold and I’m struggling not to get sick. That’s why today I share natural ways to catch a cold.
Ginger with hot water. Ginger has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and expectorant properties. vitamins C, B1 and B2, vitamins E, A and K, folic acid and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. Tea with ginger soothes coughs, dilutes mucus, inhibits bronchospasms, has an analgesic and antipyretic effect, which is why it is recommended for catarrh and inflammation of the upper respiratory tract. A drink with ginger, preferably with the addition of cinnamon, lemon, honey and turmeric, has strong warming, diaphoretic and antipyretic properties.
People who should not use ginger:
– children under 12 months of age
– people with stomach or duodenal ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease
– Ginger should not be excessively eaten by people with hypertension, because this spice raises blood pressure.
Recipe for homemade onion syrup (for wet and dry cough) Onions and sugar are enough for the basic version of the syrup.
Peel two or three onions.
Chop the onion finely and fill it with plenty of sugar. You can also pour honey (this version of the syrup will be healthier, provided you are not allergic to honey).
Let stand covered for about five hours until the onion releases its juice and the onion syrup is ready.
Dosage: 3 tablespoons a day
Onion syrup can also be used as a home remedy for a child’s runny nose.
If you dip a cotton pad in it and apply it to the toddler’s nose (you will brush it lightly on your nostrils), the syrup will also help with a runny nose.
Storage We store the syrup in a tightly closed jar, in a dark and cool place. In such conditions, it should last for about two weeks.
If you have any other ways to get a cold let me know 😉
Recently it was also about posture, but this time the information will be given in a different context. It’s about strengthening the body whether we sit a lot or not. Why? Exercise not only improves our posture, but also improves circulation, improves condition, makes us live longer, and our muscles strengthen enough to help joints.
When it comes to exercise, the gym is very good because it brings results very quickly, it is also easier for beginners because you can easily adjust the weight. There is a disadvantage, which, unfortunately, prevents some from exercising: the price.
The solution is one: calisthenics.
Kalistenika is training with your own body weight. Even if you get strong enough to add weight, you still don’t have to go to the gym. The weight at calisthenics can be water bottles, bags filled with sand or anything heavy.
I will not give you an exact plan here, but I will give general principles that will help you:
take breaks between workouts (that’s when the muscles grow), i.e. you can do workouts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
if you want to build strength and mass at the same time, it is worth doing 3 sets of 12 monsters (of course, as a beginner you can do less at the beginning to get used to the body). When you feel that the number of repetitions is getting too easy, add the number of repetitions or the weight
if you feel pain during exercise and it persists after a few repetitions, stop the exercise. This is a sign that the muscles have been strained too quickly
It’s all for today 😉 If you have any questions, comments.
We hear everywhere that movement is health and it is absolutely true. However, you have to remember that nowadays a lot of people work on the computer. In theory, our hips get more tense and our posture deteriorates. If our posture worsens, it can cause various pains. We grow a hump literally. More and more people have problems with their eyesight and hearing loss due to the surrounding noise. Of course, when it comes to hearing, we do the biggest harm through headphones. We don’t hear the music well on the bus or outside so we make it louder by hurting mercilessly.
There are many problems that overlap and I will try to discuss them all in this post. It is a reward for my last lack;)
Problem No. 1. Tight hips
We have to sit, but there are 3 ways (depending on the situation) that we can use to get rid of the problem. a) If we work at home or are sitting at home most often, we can even improve our condition thanks to the Turkish sitting. It is true that it is uncomfortable for most of us and some, they can only sit in this position for a few seconds. I no longer mention the pain felt at that time and the inability to leave the touch knee the floor. However, despite these difficulties, it is extremely healthy, and people in Thailand practically do not know hips pain.
Yes, I know you can’t do it. I do not want to be sat in the Turkish position right away. Your task looks like this: 30 minutes daily seating on the floor. You are not to stick to any fixed position. Just sit as comfortably as you can and change it every time you feel uncomfortable.
Information written on the basis of what you convey below;) It also has some movies in English I recommend.
b) if you work in a corporation, you can try to stand at a sufficiently high desk (the employer, hearing about improving productivity, may agree to buy them) and every now and then sit because he will stand still all the time will put his unused habits back. If your company doesn’t buy new desks, you can bring a gym ball and sit on it. This requires overcoming shame, but who is not brave does not drink champagne. The ball has the advantages that it is unstable so your muscles are already forced to work. They don’t clash as much as in a chair because they work.
c) suppose you don’t have the courage and the company is very economical and doesn’t care about you. In this case, try to get up for about a half hour or so. Look for reasons to go somewhere for a moment. To the bathroom, to the kitchen, for documents (stop asking colleagues), etc. You can even offer to go buy lunch or garbage for somebody. A simple, cheap but effective method.
Problem No. 2. Slouching
I will not write long, I just recommend a “spider” that helps you develop a good habit and get rid of the bad one. Unfortunately, in addition, you need to strengthen weak muscles to compensate for muscular distabalance.
(I will still write about strengthening muscles)
Problem No. 3. Deteriorating eyesight
Here, as in the case of tense hips, it is important to take breaks. 20/20/20 rules -> every 20 minutes for 20 seconds, take a break from looking at the screen and look at something at least 20 feet away from you.
In addition, so-called eye yoga is helpful. When you feel when your eyes are tired, do the following set of exercises (1 sets, 10 reps on each eye):
eye movements up and down
moves left – right, right – left
diagonal movements left – right, right – left
make circles to the left and to the right (the larger the better, but do not exceed the limit of discomfort), right to left
if the room is large or you have the opportunity to look out the window, look alternately at near and far (few times)
The ideal is to do these exercises not only when you feel eye strain, but every day
If you can afford it, I recommend a “natural screen”. The brand is not important. It is important that you start looking “more naturally”.
When you look at the laptop, the number of blinks decreases, which is not good for your eyesight. With a book-like reader, this result should be
correct. More blinks = better hydrated eyes. Naturally.
Problem No. 4 Hearing problems
I will not make the noise outside of you fade away, but you can stop using traditional earphones and start to use the bone headphones. Even if you turn up the music, you won’t be harmed, or at least I don’t know anything about it.
That’s all good for today;)
Let me know if these ways have helped you. Or maybe you have your own ways to protect your health? 😉
Funny at the beginning, but I had a problem recovering the password. It wasn’t until today that I was able to regain them by luck, also in about 18 hours I will put a new post. This time about a sedentary lifestyle and tricks how to spend a lot of time at the computer and not damage your health.
This problem is the title name of this website will also be described first. I’ve never had a problem with blow legs,
but I prepared some information and a video with exercises. I recommend most of the videos of this youtuber (I like his approach
to natural methods and his style).
Some typically medical information: Lopsided legs are a defect in the lower limbs characterized by the arrangement of the legs resembling the letter X.
The disease usually manifests around four to five years of age.
It can be treated with appropriate corrective exercises, while in advanced cases splints and braces are used.
Knee deformities next to foot defects are among the most common pathologies of the lower extremities. At different periods of the child’s life, the formation of the lower limbs and feet is slightly different.
