How to Easily Exercise Every Day

We know the importance of exercise. It helps to improve your circulation, detoxify your body and make you more refresh.

However, most people couldn’t stick to a consistent exercise program. They get lazy over time and prefer to watch TV instead of going to gym.

What if you can make exercise part of your daily routine? Let exercise fit naturally in your lifestyle. And you don’t have to allocate a specific time for your real exercise, which seems quite impossible anyway.

Here are some tips you can try…

Take the stair instead of elevator

I often see people waiting for the elevator or lift just to go up one floor. And the staircase is just besides the elevator! Come on… where’s the leg?

If you often take elevator, why not use stair instead? Climbing stair is a good exercise. If you’re going up by one, two or even five floors, try climbing the stair. Let your leg muscles do some work and let your heart pump faster.

What if you are going up to the 20th floor? Well, you can take the elevator up to the 15th or 18th floor. Then walk some distance to the stair and climb up to the 20th floor.

Of course you use up more time. But for your own health, don’t you think it’s worth it? Just remember not to do this in a hurry. Exercising during tension or in a rush is not a good idea.

Walk back home

Of course, I’m not asking you to walk all the way back home from your work place or school if it’s very far. If you take bus or LRT (Light Rail Transit), you can choose to drop off one station before your actual destination.

And if you take taxi, you can ask the taxi driver to stop you some distance earlier. Then walk slowly from there.

Walking is also a good exercise. It involves less activity compared to climbing stair. But walking is certainly better than sitting in the bus. Well, even standing consumes more calories compared to sitting. So you may want to stand up even when seat is available.

And if you want to buy something from nearby shop, consider walking instead of driving.

Do some house work

Guys… help your wife or parents do some house work instead of watching TV or sitting in front of your computer. Simple task such as cleaning toilet, hanging cloth and even sweeping floor let you exercise your muscles.

So next time when you see your wife washing dish, go to her and say, “Honey, let me help you with this. You must be tired after cooking for our dinner. So you should take a rest now.”

Wow… can you see your wife’s sweet smile? Let her know you care for her. Just don’t tell her you are doing this just for a little exercise.

The correct way to exercise

Good exercise should increase your heart rate and make you sweat. However, you may find it hard to have that kind of exercise. Therefore, doing the above mentioned light activity seems better than doing nothing at all.

And don’t underestimate this short duration and relatively light activity. If you make it a habit to do some every day, it adds up significantly.

However, no matter what exercise you do, take note of the following:

1. Do it in a clean environment. If walking back home lets you inhale lots of vehicle exhaust, you can forget it. Staying in the bus or car is safer and healthier. Also avoid walking under hot sun.

2. Do it in a relaxing manner. Do not rush. Do not worry about your work. And do not grumble. Enjoy your walk. Enjoy the scenery. And enjoy the gentle breeze. Appreciate everything around you, things you often overlook in your busy lifestyle.

3. Do not overdo it. Some sports and games such as tennis, badminton and football are only suitable for young people. If you are above 40 years old, please avoid these rough exercises. Your chances of injury are quite high. And your heart may not be able to take too much stress.

If you have knee pain caused by degenerative arthritis, avoid climbing hill. Your knee cartilage wear and tear may get worse, especially when you climb down the hill. Go for brisk walk instead.

Not every natural food is good for everyone says fresh water and nutrition educator Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

A widely accepted belief in the United States in recent decades has been that “Natural foods are always good for you.” Global water and nutrition advocate and educator Sharon Kleyne recently cautioned that this belief is not always true and that not all natural foods – no matter how nutritious – are good for everyone. Kleyne recently discussed individual differences in dietary and nutritional needs on her Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show.

The key to good nutrition, says Kleyne, is proactive personal education. It is especially important to carefully research, both pro and con, fad diets and very limited diets, before undertaking them.

The Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® recently aired the segment on May 25, 2015. For the live show or a podcast, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.

The syndicated radio show, hosted by Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, atmosphere, dehydration and vision. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eye and eye allergies.

The most dramatic example of individual differences in nutritional needs, according to Kleyne, can be seen in people whose ancestry originated in the Arctic. Those individuals tend to have a very high tolerance for fat and animal protein and a completely vegan diet might not be as well suited for them as the same diet would be for somebody else.

Kleyne offers the following suggestions regarding food choices:

In general, fresh, locally grown organic foods are preferable to manufactured, processed and heavily packaged foods (corn on the cob is better than Fritos). Locally grow foods are better adapted to the local seasons and don’t need to be shipped as far so they are more likely to be fresh and don’t waste fossil fuel.

In season foods are more likely to be in balance with the body’s needs than out of season foods. Thus, celery from a nearby farm stand in July is far preferable to celery imported from Chile in January.

Everyone is genetically different and some people have a greater need for certain nutrients. This can sometimes be reflected in food cravings. Bear in mind, however, that when food cravings involve salt, fat, sugar, alcohol or caffeine, they are more likely reflecting addictions rather than actual needs.

Climate, activity level, age, health and medication can also affect one’s nutritional needs, Kleyne points out.

Each individual, says Kleyne, knows their own body better than any one else could. As unique individuals, each of us must determine for ourselves if our body has a greater need for one type of food and less of a need for another type of food.

The best bet, nutritionally, Kleyne observes, is almost always to eat a wide variety of natural foods. Be especially cautious of limited diets such as all lettuce or all carbohydrate.

Water is a nutrient, Kleyne stresses, so be sure to include an adequate amount of water in your diet. The need for water varies among individuals and no two people dehydrate at the same rate or in the same way. In general, Kleyne suggests a minimum of eight glasses of pure water per day, in addition to all other fluid intake. Drinks containing alcohol, excessive sugar, caffeine or carbonation tend to be dehydrating and should not be counted as part of the daily water quotient.

Kleyne believes that consuming water in full glasses is preferable to sipping. She suggests drinking two full eight ounce glasses in upon rising and at least two more full glasses during the day.

There is nothing more important to health, Kleyne concludes, than diet and nutrition. Nutrition education should be an ongoing lifelong process for everyone. Earth is changing every day and our bodies are also changing every day.

Kiko Labs Unveils New Neuroscience-Based App for Children to Challenge Critical Skills Every Child Needs for School Success


San Carlos, Calif (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Kiko Labs, alongside neuroscientists, today announced Kiko’s Thinking Time for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, a unique adaptive suite of games for children based on neuropsychological exercises to challenge the foundational skills needed for school success. By playing the app, children exercise critical skills like executive functions and reasoning in fun workouts.

As 90% of a child’s brain develops in the first 5 years of life, the early, formative years are the ones that matter most. *Children with stronger working memory, inhibition and attentional skills have been found to make larger gains on tests of early math, language and literacy development. Early research shows promise that these skills can be trained. Kiko Labs collaborated with neuroscientists from Harvard and UC Berkeley, and with support from the U.S. Department of Education, to design Kiko’s Thinking Time from behaviors and evidence-based techniques drawn from scientific studies showing early promise in improving the critical cognitive skills related to learning capacity.

“At Kiko Labs, we believe that every child deserves to fulfill his or her potential. Our learning experience called Kiko’s Thinking Time is a training program designed to help them do that,” said Grace Wardhana, co-founder and CEO, Kiko Labs. “This app for children targets fundamental skills like executive functions and reasoning that are the necessary groundwork for learning in kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to make mental exercises fun.”

About Kiko’s Thinking Time

In just 10 minutes, children aged 3 – 7 can go on a customized adventure with Kiko the Fox to help her in her quest for treasure. They play a series of 10 games where they meet cute animal characters in Kiko’s village and help them with their activities. Through fun mental exercise, children who play Kiko’s Thinking Time challenge skills like memory and focus that will help them become more attentive, focused learners in school. After the child is finished playing, the app provides reporting tools for parents to chart progress over time.

“Kiko’s Thinking Time gives kids training wheels to practice critical skills like working memory and reasoning. It does this by providing a structured environment, and by designing progression in a rigorous, hierarchical way.” – Dr. Jenny Thomson, neuroscientist, former associate professor, Harvard University

Reaction from Parents, Teachers, Clinicians

Today’s announcement builds upon a successful beta version of Kiko’s Thinking Time, which recorded nearly 700,000 sessions of training activity. The response from children, their parents, teachers and clinicians has been impressive:

●    “It is a great mix of a playing and learning app – it includes the perfect skills while keeping kids interested.” – Rebecca Brian, parent of three

●    “Every classroom should have this app. I think it is wonderful and will really benefit the classroom. The data is excellent and will help me lead my instruction.” – Jaquetta Wallace, head teacher, Oakland Unified School District

●    “I am an ABA therapist and work with a variety of children on the autism spectrum. I have been using it with my clients to help them improve their focus, ability to switch between tasks, etc. I find it very useful and I love that they enjoy it as a game!” – Yohanka Allen, clinician

Availability and Pricing

Kiko’s Thinking Time is available for free in the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.appstore.com. When parents are ready for more content they can upgrade for unlimited access to all 10 games and a new game added monthly for $ 7.99/month or $ 49.99/year.
