Old sports injuries, long days, and the signs of aging. We accumulate a lot of aches and pains, some of them temporary, some of them lasting with us for a lot longer. But they’re not all just the signs of a life well-lived catching up to us. Some of them could be indicators or a much greater risk that we should move to fight against.


Knees, hips, and ankles
Joint pain is some of the most commonly experienced, but if joints aren’t properly protected, chronic conditions like arthritis are a lot more likely to take effect. In fact, 20% of adults suffer from some form of it. While many types of arthritis are a lot more likely for older people, if you’re not practicing proper posture or stretching before and after exercise, you’re at a higher risk to develop it earlier. Even stress has a big effect on your joints. Relaxation techniques, from aromatherapy to a hot bath, de-stresses your muscles, meaning they’re putting less pressure on your joints.
Injuring too easily
We injure easier as we get older. If you’re starting to develop things like fractures too easily when you exercise, however, it could be an early indicator of osteoporosis. Bodyweight exercises like running, pushups and yoga can all strengthen your bones just as they would your muscles. Nutrition is important, too. Based on the evidence from AlgaeCal reviews on Supplement Police, some supplements can not only help you resupply your bones to prevent them from losing density but can help you gain bone mass again. On the other hand, losing weight by predominantly focusing on your diet can result in not only fat loss but bone loss.
A heady feeling
Migraines and other headaches are some of the most common reasons people go to see the doctor. When you get older, most headaches and their severity will actually loosen up on you. Which means if you’re suffering a headache, there may well be an underlying cause. There are several types of headache, and if you’re starting to suffer from a familiar sensation more often than the others, it helps to visit the doctor to see which treatment is best for you. In the meantime, finding a quiet moment to relax is a great way to ease off a headache. Lay down, shut out the light and apply some natural oils to give you relief in the moment.
Get a move on
Back pain shares much in common with joint pain in terms of both its common distribution amongst older people and some of its causes. The same times as above go for a bad back, but there’s one, in particular, that’s worth remember. If you hurt your back, bed rest is not a good option. Instead, it might be a sign that you spend too much time lying and sitting down so your back becomes less used to bearing the stress of the body on itself. When sitting, proper back support is crucial as well. Since the majority of the workforce has moved to the office, repetitive strain injury due to poor sitting position has become all the more common. Untreated or untargeted back pain can easily become a chronically debilitating condition if left to its own devices.

If you’re not careful, those aches and pains could keep growing to chronic levels where they have a serious impact on how well you live independently and enjoy it. Keep yourself vital for longer with the tips above.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
