Everyone tends to be feeling a bit run down near to the beginning of the year, but if you’ve been particularly prone to colds and flu this winter, you might want to look into upping your Vitamin D intake. The vitamin has countless health benefits, and yet so many people do not make an effort to get more of it by way of their diet. Not only does it keep bones and teeth healthy, a lack of the vitamin could also trigger serious conditions such as rickets and there is also plenty of evidence linking it to fertility, eyesight and the immune system.

Understanding Power Napping and Its Benefits

Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Christine who is a freelance writer and self proclaimed fitness freak.

When 3 o’clock rolls around you may quickly find yourself yawning and desperately wanting a nap. You unwillingly push the thought from your mind and trek on with your day wishing you had time to get in that much needed power nap. Perhaps you should rethink your decision. Power napping, if done right, can be very beneficial.

What Is Power Napping?

A power nap is a small nap during the day that doesn’t involve falling into a deep sleep. It is one in which your body is not allowed to go through the different stages of the sleep cycle. For most people, a power nap should be between 15-30 minutes a day. The longer …

—–

It may be tempting for individuals to pin all their hopes on a fad diet in a bid to lose weight fast – and let’s face it, who hasn’t at some time or another? However, what few people realise is that, despite leading to dramatic weight loss in a short period of time, generally any weight lost as a result of novelty diets piles back on once the programme has been completed. What’s more, some of these diets aren’t based on sufficient medical research and can have a detrimental impact on a person’s health in the long run.

With these concerns in mind, it is much better – and …

Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Tom who writes for Assisted Living Today.

—–

As a person gets older, exercising becomes more and more important. A common misconception is that working out and staying fit are for the young and the vain, those who want to show off during the summer months on the beach.

Working out means a healthier heart, improved mobility and being more independent. More often than not seniors feel intimidated by the prospect of working out because they aren’t sure what type of exercise equipment is best suited for them. Luckily there are countless products on the …
