Young Adult’s Guide to Replacing Food Stores

When young adults finally choose to make the switch from a processed, college food filled pantry to one full of healthy and nutritional foods, it can be hard to figure out which staples are necessary. It may also be difficult to get rid of particular food items, especially if the individual is not wasteful. It will take several weeks to make the switch completely. This gives the current food stock time to be eaten and sorted through.

Eliminating High Sodium Foods
High sodium foods are very bad for one’s health. The risk of elevated blood pressure alone is enough of a reason to eliminate these salty foods. Chips, frozen dinners, traditional canned soups, and dry boxed dinners are all loaded with sodium. Instead, these items should be replaced with low or no sodium versions of the products. Many items may not be available without the sodium, however.

Purchasing Lots of Whole Foods
Whole foods are the key to healthy living. For dry foods, whole grain brown rice, quinoa, barley, lentils, dry beans, and other nutritious grains and legumes are perfect. They will store for a long time. Whole meats are raw cuts found in the butcher’s section of the store, and should be hormone free. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must have as well! Choose from a variety of pesticide free produce at farmers markets.

Mixers and Alcohol
Alcohol and mixers are frequently found in the pantries of young adults. Some of them can be very for weight loss and management, making it important to invest in light beers and low calorie mixers for alcohol. This not only reduces guilt when having a drink, but it keeps the home prepared for a sudden celebration at a moment’s notice.

Acceptable Canned Goods
Since some canned goods are loaded with preservatives and sodium, it is important to know which ones are good. Canned goods can last for years, and are vital in case of emergencies. Low or no sodium canned vegetables, soups, sauces, and legumes are all wonderful, especially if they are labeled as organic or non-GMO. Do not invest in canned meats or cheeses unless they are only kept for emergency situations.

Replacing an entire pantry can be a lot of work. Determining which items can stay requires a bit of research. Eliminating bad food from the pantry greatly reduces the risk of slipping into an unhealthy lifestyle in the future.

5 Alternate Health and Wellness Strategies

There are the typical approaches to health and wellness that involve scientific and well-researched methods of diet and exercise. And then there are some other ways that you can get your mind and body in order as well. And many of these other ways have been around in other cultures for thousands of years, but, to the Western world, they are still considered ‘alternate’ as well.

So, five of these strategies, as seen through the perspective of mainstream culture, include brain music therapy, meditation retreats, online brain improvement programs, sports therapy, and even acupuncture, for those willing to try that route.

Brain Music Therapy

Chances are fairly likely that you haven’t heard of brain music therapy before, as it’s definitely a curiosity, and it’s also pretty new to the health and wellness playground. However, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have the potential to do what it says, and it doesn’t mean that you should approach it as a viable resource. In fact, by going that route now, you might even be able to help its progress along as a new theory and technology by participating in its beta stages.

Meditation Retreats

Meditation retreats are a great, if occasionally somewhat expensive, way to health and wellness as well. Meditation is something you need to practice, so it isn’t necessarily an immediate fix right when you get started. Though certain aspects of health do work right away, without working at it, it can be difficult to maintain any kind of results. The purpose of having it as a retreat in some cases is what makes it more worthwhile, as you are further away from other distractions while making your own progress.

Online Brain Improvement Programs

There are really interesting brain improvement websites like lumosity.com as well, that give you a long path to mental health and wellness through the daily brain games that they give you to play. You can check your progress against yourself and others as you go along as well

Sports Therapy

Sports therapy in terms of wellness is all about team efforts and group communication. If you can play a pickup game of frisbee with a bunch of like-minded people, then you can’t feel all that badly about yourself, which is why just the act of getting together with a few folks can help your mindset tremendously.

Acupuncture

And a final alternative health method that many people at least experiment with some time in their lives is acupuncture. Go to someone who is licensed, tell them what ails you, and they’ll stick their little needles in wherever they see fit, and you’ll find out if you feel better afterwards! It’s a pretty straightforward cause and effect process, so why not try it out!

Life after Concussions: Tips for Cautious Recuperation

Concussions, an injury caused by head trauma, come in many shapes and sizes. Some people bounce back quickly, perhaps suffering a few headaches or some brain fog, while others struggle for day, months, or even the rest of their lives to regain normal function after a concussion. As the recent deaths of several NFL players reveals, this struggle can be insurmountable. For most who do not suffer frequent concussions, however, the right tools can help you feel normal again quickly.

The first thing you should do when trying to bounce back from a concussion is find the right doctor. You need a doctor who fully understands the ramifications of a concussion and can assess your cognitive and neurological function, as well as any functional problems such as light or sound sensitivity. In some cases you may need to see a neurologist or other specialist to help you manage concussion-related symptoms.

It’s very important that those dealing with a concussion not return to athletic activity too soon, especially if the activity in question caused the initial trauma. Even minor impacts can slow healing from a concussion and impact long-term functioning. Additionally, laws require school-age athletes to be medically cleared before returning to sports.

When you resume exercising, start with non-impact activities. Do gentle cardio and weight training activities to rebuild stamina. Your new exercise regimen should start out slow with periods of activity and plenty of rest. Stay hydrated and make sure to warm up and cool down and always stop if an activity causes dizziness or nausea.

After a concussion it’s important that you report any status changes to your doctor, even if they don’t seem to be associated with a neurological issue. From nausea to trouble sleeping, doctors are increasingly aware that concussions don’t have a clear symptom set but rather can come along with a series of what are known as nonspecific symptoms. Almost any change can be a symptom of a concussion.

It may be the case that modern technology is actually making recovery from head trauma more difficult. While we do have improved medical technology to diagnose concussions, the blue light emitted by many gadgets, including computer screens and smartphones has been shown to cause sleep changes and eye strain even in uninjured brains. And while this blue light also may help us stay focused, those who have suffered a concussion may actually become excessively sensitive to the wavelength of blue light. It can cause severe headaches and nausea and the pervasive nature of this kind of light can make it difficult for even doctors to identify the source of such symptoms.

In many ways we’ve been conditioned to think of concussions as no big deal – people get them all the time and when they’re minor those people feel normal in again in a matter of days. However, severe or repeated concussions are another matter altogether. A severe concussion can be life changing and may require major adjustments to your habits and activities. Never assume a concussion – yours or someone else’s – is no big deal. The brain remains a mystery in many regards and that is certainly true when considering the impact of a concussion.

Riser Recliners – The best solution for your home

Are you having trouble getting up out of your chair? Are you restricted by mobility issues? After relaxing for a long period, do you find you are struggling to stand? We offer you a simple solution- a riser recliner chair. Many people of all ages have mobility issues particularly if the strength in their leg muscles fade or movement in the joints becomes painful. It is essential to consider how to make life easier rather than ignore the issues and create further problems. Your home is the place you spend the most time and as such, should be where you are most comfortable and the first place to address mobility issues. There are plenty of options available to assist movement and provide comfort.

A riser recliner is only slightly larger than an average armchair but comes with a host of benefits. A quiet electric motor with an easy to use controller assures you are in charge of the exact position you wish to sit in. Whether you chose to be upright or recline, the chairs offer an extension to the base seat area to support your legs. The chair can be adjusted to a raised position not only to help you stand up when you wish to move out of the chair but also to slowly and carefully ease you into a sitting position. At Simplelife Mobility, our bestselling model – the Wilmslow Rise & Recliner Dual Motor Chair – a luxurious chair with independently adjustable backrest and leg rest to offer superb comfort and support – is currently on offer for a limited time at a fantastic £100 off RRP at only £399 including delivery!

If these options are not to your taste then you may consider a high seated chair such as our Queen Anne Fireside Chair which has a classic design, specially contoured to give reassuring back, neck and head support. This chair is not adjustable like the risers and so remains upright at all times. It is however incredibly comfortable.

Whichever design or style you are looking for to offer you the extra support and comfort around the home, you will find a riser recliner to suit at Simplelife Mobility. Treat yourself to increased comfort and support today!

How to Take Better Care of Your Health

When you are young, you might not think about your health often. You have a lot of stamina, you can sleep just a few hours a day, and you know that you have your whole life ahead of you. But the older you get, the more you will start to realize how important it is to take care of your health. In a way, the earlier you start taking care of it, the healthier you will be your whole life. Below I would like to offer you a few tips on how to make your body stronger and prevent some life-threatening conditions such as coronary heart disease or diabetes that seem to plague so many people these days, especially in Western countries.

1. Get plenty of sleep. I know that it might sound obvious and you might hear the tip often, but the truth is that most adults don’t get nearly as much sleep as they should. While 6 hours might seem like enough in the short run, it is proven that sleep deprived people are more likely to suffer from psychological conditions such as depression and anxiety.

2. Visit experienced doctors from time to time. You might not experience any health problems yet, but it is always a good idea to address a problem before it even spins out of control.

3. Don’t be a potato couch. If you are unfamiliar with the term, a potato couch is a person who lives a sedentary lifestyle and doesn’t move that much. Lack of movement leads to all sorts of diseases such as heart problems, diabetes, depression or anxiety. You should aim at having at least 20 minutes of exercise per day, which is not that much taking into account that day has many hours. The least you can do for your body is to move a little.
