      Hi Ivan, I understand what you are saying about getting enough sleep, I also sometimes go through the same cos of maybe too much work during the day,or sometimes family issues. but I encouraging you to atlist if you can come up with a guideline for your daily routine and include sleep so that you can have enough sleep.
      about water I encouraging you to be carrying a bottle of water, and if you have been carrying it but you forget to fill up, you can go for 64oz water Bottle, it’s the best for measuring H2o intake. thanks so much and hope my information will be of great help to your health.

    I really appreciate your post and the common sense ideas presented. As a society I think we have lost touch with the simplicity of caring for ourselves. The soft machine requires both adequate nutrients and rest for repair. Without these two components the soft machine breaks down much the way a car would when you don’t pay attention to repairs. Awareness is the key to good health. Thank you for sharing your perspective.

      Hi Stacy, I really appreciate for your compliment and you are right about how the society has lost touch with the simplicity of caring for ourselves, and that’s why am here with the little knowledge I get about healthy and fitness just to share with everyone who cares about his body. we should take care of our body, cos it’s the only place you have to live in. thanks.

    Being and staying healthy is about some small things that we can do here and there, but we all tend to neglect them and cultivate unhealthy habits which will end up creating serious problem.

    I have never valued my sleep, I was studying until very late at night and sometimes the whole night. And I will go on with the next day without any rest. Until, one day my heart beat started to spead up and for 2 weeks I did not think it was an issue. So, just like a joke, I told my mum, she is a nurse, I saw how she got scared. We went to the hospital the same day, after some exams. The doctor said, you need to sleep, gave me sleeping pills and something for the blood. So, just like that, I could have had a heart attack at only 19 years. Since that day, I go to sleep early and take any precaution to keep fit and healthy.

    Thanks

      Hi Adyns68, it’s awesome to hear from you hoping you are ok and having enough sleep. am greatly for sharing your story about how getting less sleep affected you health wise. there dozens of people who don’t have any information about the importance of getting enough sleep, and the effects of it. luck you who notice early and you got medication plus information from the doctor. 

      let’s not wait for illness to start valuing wellness, and am glad that one of the points on my article reflected what you went through and we need to enlighten our friends, relatives, colleagues and the entire world on importance of getting enough sleep, fit and healthy. 

      thanks and if you have any information or article please feel free to share, and have a healthy lifestyle. 

      Regards From Bruce.

    I’m proud of my son with his choice of food. He would always ask for veggies even for a snack, he only drinks fresh juice and hates carbonated drinks. We thought everything’s great but then at 9 yrs. old we found out that he developed asthma. Doctor advised him to take swimming lessons. It worked for him and made his lungs stringer.

    Sometimes it’s really hard to keep track on how healthy you are living. You maybe eating healthy and nutritious food but doesn’t get to exercise. You maybe hydrating yourself with water or getting enough sleep but you’re also stress eating a lot. Blog like yours should be kept as reminder not to miss any of the healthy guidelines we need for our body and mind. 

    We should also have a healthy spirit and a positive vibe. If we’re sad, feeling desperate or angry, it’s alright to let it come out of your system but don’t dwell on it. Thanks for sharing this to us!

    • admin

      Hi MissusB, Hope you’re fine, thanks for appreciating my article and am sorry for your Son about asthma issue, thank God he is ok now. 

      Swimming is my favourite sport and it’s the best exercise one can do cos it’s a coordination of the mind and body, and its true it helps the lungs. You are right that sometimes we forget to keep track on our health, for as to be able to to keep track of everything our body and mind healthy, we should come up with a daily routine timetable of the exercise and nuitricious food to follow so that we can live a healthy lifestyle. 

      Healthy spirit and positive vibe is another essential issue we have to keep track on. thanks for that and if you have any other information or article, feel free to share.

    To be honest, I consider 8hours of sleep to be over the top and I can hardly see myself sleeping for that much time just in one night. Having said that, it is a habit I am trying to cultivate because I recently started to realize the importance of it. The brain and the body needs that rest to kind of reset itself. There are actually studies that proves to this one issue which is why developing the habit of sleeping for a minimum of 8hous should never be taken lightly.

    • admin

      Hi Jay, it’s good to hear from you, and am glad you have realized how important sleep is.  we sometimes indulge ourselves in activities that don’t bring value to our lives and forget to have enough sleep. 

      most people are glued to phone, laptop and tablet every night and it’s not healthy. I can see you have been doing research on sleep which is awesome and I can say knowledge is healthy. keep on with the developing the habit of sleeping and am sure you will notice some healthy changes in your body and brain. 

      thanks, 

      Regards From,

    Hi Bruce

    You make some excellent points in this article taking into account the fact that you have to exercise both your mind and body to truly be healthy. Sleep I think is one of the most under-rated healthy activities, with a busy lifestyle for me that was always the thing that suffered the most, there just never seemed to be enough hours in the day, 

    I really focus now on getting at least 7 hours of sleep a night and I have noticed how much that has helped other areas of my life both mentally and physically.

    You make some great common sense suggestions here and I’ll be following up some of your ideas,

    • admin

      Hi Dominic,  

      It’s wonderful to hear from you and am so humbled for the compliment about my article, being healthy is a combination of both the mind and body, it’s true that most of us under-rate sleep by not getting enough of it. am glad you realized it and you started working on it, which is a good step and you sow the positive results. 

      am so grateful for the following up and that will keep me on toss to come up with helpful articles.

      have a wonderful healthy lifestyle and if at any time you have any information or helpful articles,  please feel free to share. 

      Regards From, 

      Bruce.

    what an informative post you have here on being healthy.

    I suffered from a heart attack 2 years ago now and I really didn’t care about myself whatsoever

    I was diagnosed with clinical depression so I wasn’t myself at all and would go days without even washing but as soon as I received the medication from my doctor I could see that the way to make me feel better about myself was to get a good nights sleep and a bath, which I did and felt like I was on top of the world

    You have written so many great points about getting ahealthy mind through a healthy body so I have to share this with all the people that I know.

    Thanks so much for this, it really has helped me a lot 🙂

    My comments: I do concur with the author’s article. The five things are needed order to have or maintain a healthy body, balanced and happy life. 

    1. Intake of Nutrients

    2. Drink ample water( at least 6 caps a day) 

    3. Exercise( at least 30 minutes walk a day)

    4. Maintain sanitation( clean hands, clean clothes, clean food, clean house etc) 

    5. Regular, sound sleep( at least 8 hours sleep on a daily basis)

    We need to eat all necessary nutrients that our body needs on a daily basis:

    Proteins, fat, Carbohydrates .

    The body uses three main nutrients to function carbohydrate, protein, and fat.

    These nutrients are digested into simpler compounds. Carbohydrates are used for energy (glucose). Fats are used for energy after they are broken into fatty acids. Protein can also be used for energy, but the first job is to help with making hormones, muscle, and other proteins.

    Nutrients needed by the body and what they are used for Type of nutrient

    Where it is found

    How it is used

    Carbohydrate (Bread, Grains, Fruits, Vegetables,Milk and yogurt, Foods with sugar)
    Broken down into glucose, used to supply energy to cells. Extra is stored in the liver.

    Protein
    Meat
    Seafood
    Nuts and seeds
    Eggs
    Milk products
    Vegetables

    Broken down into amino acids, used to build muscle and to make other proteins that are essential for the body to function.

    Fat
    Oils
    Butter
    Egg yolks
    Animal products

    Broken down into fatty acids to make cell linings and hormones. Extra is stored in fat cells.
    After a meal, the blood sugar (glucose) level rises as carbohydrate is digested. This signals the beta cells of the pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream. Insulin helps glucose enter the body’s cells to be used for energy. If all the glucose is not needed for energy, some of it is stored in fat cells and in the liver as glycogen. As sugar moves from the blood to the cells, the blood glucose level returns to a normal between-meal range.

      Hi Richard,  am glad you went through my article and am so grateful the way you have elaborated in details on the nuitricious food and how its broken down and goes to different part of the body for our body to have energy  and well-being. I guess next time I should write a detailed article like this. thanks so much and at any time you have a valuable article just feel free to share.

    Great post, you made me drink water! that’s something special because most of time I read and think ok I’ll do it later but your post convinced me.  Little things can make us feel so much better but we don’t always do it, we have only 1 body.  Take care of your temple and have a happy life.

    • admin

      Hi Francoise, it’s wonderful to hear from you, and it’s so awesome you have notice how important water is to our  body. I used to do the same, I sometimes forget to drink water until the body gets weak or at times feel  headache then I remember that its because of not drinking water. I had to do something by having the 64oz water bottle and it really helped me. you can try it and thank me latter. thanks and at any time you need to ask a question or share something valuable, feel free to do so.

    As you’ve put it, the remedy for a healthy life is that simple. The 5 things outlined in your article are very doable but when it comes to action, most of us find it very hard to implement.

    The mental health issue is really an eye opener. We often ignore this concept, and it is mainly because we do not know how to detect stress and depression from within us and others. 

    Your pointers are very helpful. 

    Thanks for the article.

    • admin

      Hi Carol, am so grateful that my article has been of help to you. our body is a precious place to live in and we really need to take good care of it, only that we sometimes forget to implement care cos of our daily activities, we only remember the moment we find ourselves in hospital bed only to be reminded by the doctor of how to take care of our body. let’s not wait for that, we can do it if only we can make it to be our daily routine. thanks and if you have anything else at any day, just be free to ask or share.
