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

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO...
