How To Keep On Top Of Your Health

In this day and age it can be very difficult to make sure you stay healthy. There’s so much advice being flung at us all from a thousand different directions that it makes it hard to know what exactly we should do. Luckily, there are some basic life tips that we should all follow in order to make sure that we stay fit and healthy as long as we can…
Stay Active

First of all, make sure that you stay active. There’s no better way to get unfit and to gain weight than by taking up residence on your couch and rarely moving! If you aren’t particularly into playing sports then that’s totally okay – you can get fit in another way. Take a friend along to a yoga or pilates class if you want some gentle exercise that will strengthen your core. If you’re a little more into dance and having fun then why not try out a Zumba class? Zumba mixes aerobics with hot salsa dance moves and will help you get in shape and have fun at the same time. You should also make sure that you walk as much as you can – ditch that car when you don’t need it and get your legs moving!
Manage Your Chronic Conditions
If you have a chronic condition like depression, asthma or arthritis it’s important that you manage it well. Chronic pain or discomfort can be really difficult for your mental health and it’s crucial that you don’t try to push it under the rug and just get on with your life. You need to learn to live with your chronic conditions – so make sure that you use your preventative asthma inhaler and that if you have a mental health condition, you listen to your body and your mind and you treat yourself kindly. Taking time out from the rest of your life to relax every now and then does not make you weak.
Check In With Your Doctor

If you aren’t feeling well, then it’s important to make an appointment with your doctor. There’s no point in soldiering on even when you feel awful – the people sitting close to your hacking cough at work definitely won’t appreciate it, and it’ll also mean that you won’t get better as quickly. If you can’t get an appointment, try out an app like Babylon, where you can talk to a doctor using your phone. After that, you could have another try at going to see your own doctor for even more advice.
Cut Yourself Some Slack

Finally, it’s important to make sure that you relax when you can. Even if you’re a busy parent, do your best to take some time off from your kids every now and then to spend some time by yourself and to do what you enjoy – take a look around an art gallery or go to see a movie or spend an afternoon with your new book curled up in the corner of your favourite coffee shop. It’s important to take care of yourself in order to be healthy and happy.

  1. I am trying to find some Chinese Remedy to cure headaches, instead of taking panadol, I think Chinese Medicine is more healthy though the effect might be slower

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
