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.

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
