Ten Best Healthy Pregnancy Tips

For a pregnant woman, having a healthy pregnancy and delivery is the highest priority. As an expectant mother, you want the best tips for you and your baby. Here are the top ten tips that can lead to a healthy pregnancy:

  1. Avoid junk foods

Junk foods are high in fat, salt and sugar. They are loaded with unhealthy additives which if consumed too much, can lead to diseases like diabetes and other health problems. For a healthy diet during pregnancy, check out this website: www.monthlypregnancydiet.com.

  1. Track your weight

Know the proper weight for your body type. Your nutritional requirements increase when you get pregnant.  You need 300 extra calories a day when you are pregnant.

  1. Stay away from alcohol

Refrain from consumption of alcohol in any form. When you consume alcohol during pregnancy, it passes through your bloodstream and reaches your placenta where the baby gets some dose of the drink. Since the baby is still developing, alcohol can cause serious physical and mental damage to the baby.

  1. Include folic acid in your diet

Folic acid plays a great role in the development and formation of cells and tissues. Lack of folic acid can result in neural defects. Therefore, make sure to include at least 400 mcg of folic acid in your diet every day.

  1. Get enough sleep

Give your body the sleep it deserves. Due to the hormonal changes in you and the growing baby, you may feel the need to sleep more. Do not refrain yourself from sleeping more as it is beneficial for you as well as the baby.

  1. Be stress-free

Higher levels of stress and anxiety are known to have caused low birth weight or preterm birth. Stay relaxed and keep yourself updated with information on childbirth and prenatal care. Take the right decisions and you won’t have to worry about your pregnancy.

  1. Exercise

Some of the good forms of exercise at this stage are swimming, walking and yoga. Practice 30 minutes of exercise daily and stay healthy. Being healthy during pregnancy can lead to a healthy and easy delivery.

  1. Get an adequate amount of DHA

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid which is an important element of the brain and the retina. This essential fat is known for increasing the babies’ performance on I.Q tests.

  1. Stay hydrated

Water is an essential component in the body. Being dehydrated by as little as 1 to 2 per cent of your body weight can cause difficulty in your physical function. Stay hydrated by drinking at least 8 to 12 glasses of water daily.

  1. Visit the doctor regularly

Be consistent in going to your doctor during the early stages of pregnancy and thereafter. Follow the doctor’s advice and ask questions whenever you feel the need to understand something about childbirth and pregnancy. A good understanding of pregnancy and childbirth will make you more confident about your pregnancy.

How I Regained My Emotional Wellbeing

My name is Agatha Jones and I am a traveller. A few years back, I knew nothing about travelling except that it meant going out into the world and feeling ridiculed. I was self-conscious and more so because of my puffed up body. I never wanted to get out of my comfort zone aka home. But then things started to change and my life got transformed. The purpose of this article is to tell you my story of transformation. I believe that it is going to help you in some way.

My world was really small. I lived with my parents until I turned 24. I had a small room for myself. I had a television and a computer. I used to spend most of the days watching the TV. When I was not watching the TV, I would be on the internet. While I did all these, I constantly kept munching and gulping and burping. I was a big time foodie. I was in love with food. It was the most important thing in my life. So basically, I was happy with myself. I didn’t care about what others thought of me until that one fateful day.

It was the summer of 2009. I had to go to my cousin’s place for a birthday party. Although I hated to be at parties, this time I had no choice but to go. I had made a promise and I had to keep it. I  decided to go by my father’s car. As I tried to place myself into the driver’s seat, I found that it was hard to fit in. I somehow managed to wedge myself into the seat. As I drove the car, I felt that there was something wrong. I halted the car at the side of the road and got out of the car. I was horrified at what I saw. The driver’s seat was damaged, probably due to my weight.

As if it was not the worst thing to happen, two guys came from out of nowhere and halted their car in front of mine. They must have noticed the worried expression on my face when they got out of their car. The moment I saw the guys, I felt uncomfortable. They were staring at me for some time. When I asked them what the matter was, they didn’t say anything. Instead, they approached me. I got nervous.

On getting near me, one of the guys said, “What’s wrong, lard-ass?” I couldn’t believe what I heard. For a moment, I couldn’t think of anything. But then the other guy spoke. “You sayin’ something?”, he said. “Why were you staring at me?” I blurted out.

“Look, lady, there’s nothing about you that interests us. We were just checking out that fat ass of yours.” That was it. I couldn’t take it anymore. I dashed towards them and tried to blow a punch. I missed. They laughed. I tried again. Missed again. They laughed harder. And then somehow I managed to hit one of the guys. But when I did that, it got worse. One of the guys went back to their car and brought out a sledgehammer. They started hitting my car and within a few seconds, the car became a piece of junk. I couldn’t stop them. Once they were done destroying the car, they left without another word.

This incident had a deep impact on me. I was in a state of shock. I got disconnected from my feelings and emotions. However, I realized that this has to change. I couldn’t go on like this. That is when I decided to go for counselling sessions. I looked for online counselling services and stumbled upon this website www.misshope.in. I took regular sessions from the site. These sessions made me realize that there was a lot more to do with my life than brooding over what happened. I started looking at life from a different perspective. I took it as a challenge not just to lose my weight and become stronger, but to show to myself that I could go out into the world and make an identity of my own.

The days that followed after these sessions were the days that changed me entirely. I gave up my previous sedentary lifestyle and focused on a fit and active lifestyle. Slowly but surely I noticed changes in the way I think and act. With every passing day, I started feeling more alive. That was when I decided to maintain this lifestyle for as long as I live. I decided to eat good, exercise more and travel more.

The things that I learnt from my bad experience and what you too can learn is that no matter how bad things turn out in your life, no matter how unworthy a life you have lived so far, you can always make a new beginning. All you have to do is reach out for help.

How To Get Ripped

There are people who want to lose fat and get a fit body. And and then there are those who want more than just a fit body. They want to get ripped. Most people only dream of getting ripped. When it comes to doing the things needed to get into the body shape they want, they are scared. They don’t want to put in the effort that goes into building that body. They think it almost impossible to get that kind of a body for them. This is where they are mistaken. Getting ripped is not something that is impossible to achieve. You just have to compliment your workout with the right nutrition. In this article, we have covered the factors that you need to take care of if you want to get a ripped body.

The ideal nutrition:

This is on the list of most important aspects that need to be taken care of when you are looking forward to getting a ripped body. Break your daily food intake into five or six smaller meals rather than three large meals. Stay away from foods like white bread, fast food, dessert, candy, soda and pasta. These are the food items that give you that additional layer of fat on your abs. Consume healthier foods like nuts, fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, chicken, fish and oatmeal. And do not forget to stay hydrated.

The ideal Workout:

Weightlifting and cardio exercise are the most effective exercises for getting that ripped look. Other than those, there are specific abdominal exercises that can help you get that shape. Do these exercises at least four times a week. While walking, running, cycling and swimming are all cardio exercises, the trick is to do them alongside one another at intervals. For example, if you walk for a minute, then run for about fifteen minutes and you repeat this five times. This kind of cardio workout should be done twice a week.

No matter what kind of abs workouts you do, make sure to do them in a rotation for no less than thrice a week. These sessions should not be above twenty minutes which suggests that you are investing about an hour each week solely for your abs training. During each of these three or four sessions a week, keep in mind that you are doing no less than fifteen but not more than twenty repetitions per set. It means that in the 20-minute workout session, you have to include sets of fifteen or twenty repetitions.

Never overdo any exercise even if you have the energy for doing it. It is important for you to know that to get a ripped body, it takes time. You can not achieve this in a hurry, no matter how hard you try. While you won’t lose belly fat and get six pack abs overnight, constant workouts and a healthy diet can help you accomplish that goal. So, be mindful of what you feed your body. Learn how to integrate your diet plan into your fitness routine to achieve the desired results. Here is a website that offers you diet plans for weight loss and muscle building. Check this out to learn more.

How To Deal With Stress During College Life

College life is one of the most interesting phases of a person’s life. It is during our college lives that we build a new perspective towards life. We start looking at life from a different point of view. Life becomes a lot more challenging. With the increasing challenges, stress level rises. There can be a lot of factors for stress during college life.

Here are some of the symptoms of stress in college life:

  • Inability to sleep
  • Constant agitation
  • Not feeling like attending classes
  • Overall weakness
  • Lack of motivation

While these were the symptoms of stress during college life, we are glad to let you know that there are various ways to deal with this stress during college life. Here are the things that you need to do to keep stress away during your college days:

  1. Eat well

One of the prominent reasons for feeling stressed out is the lack of good eating habits. Most college students have unhealthy eating habits. It is quite easy to fall into this habit because it is very common. Most of the healthy foods that were part of the main diet get replaced by junk foods during college days. Junk food makes one lethargic and lazy. You do not get the energy you need to focus on your studies. To avoid stress, you have to make sure that you eat only healthy foods. By healthy foods, I mean vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Make them a part of your daily diet and you will do your best in dealing with stress.

  1. Get enough sleep

Sleep is one of the basic necessities of human life. Lack of proper sleep can be disastrous to a person. When you are not able to sleep enough, you will find that you feel weak throughout the day. This gradually leads to more stress. For a healthy lifestyle, you must ensure getting at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.

  1. Be passionate

Passion is one of the driving forces that make wonders happen. If you are passionate about something, you will find a store of energy that can be used to fulfil all your tasks. You will remain focused on the task at hand and get it done as quickly as possible. When you are passionate, you get better at dealing with stress.

  1. Do not overload yourself

One of the things that most college students do wrong is that they take too much pressure on themselves. As the saying goes, “Don’t bite more than you can chew.” Having too much on your plate can make it hard for you to accomplish the tasks. Eventually, you will find yourself overloaded. Therefore, make sure that you prioritize your activities and avoid things that unnecessarily add up to your list.

  1. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise can be really beneficial to deal with stress. With regular exercise, your body becomes strong. With your body being healthy, your mind becomes healthy too.  A healthy mind remains free of stress.

  1. Get Organized

Being organized can have a lot of positive effects on a student’s life. To be organized means to have all the things related to your study and work in a way that makes it accessible instantly. For example, when you want to look at the notes for your physics class or you want to take a look at the chemistry formulas and names, you should be able to get them immediately. You can use things like charts and calendars to keep things organized. You can also use journals and notepads to keep record of notes like chemistry formulas and names. This will make it much easier for you to get access to the study material you need and you can remain stress-free. You can use websites like this for learning stuff anytime anywhere. This is definitely not an alternative to getting organized. However, it can save you a lot of time and keep your away from worry.

  1. Avoid procrastination

Procrastination is one of the biggest reasons for stress in college life. Procrastination has a lot of negative consequences in a student’s life. When things don’t get done at the right time, it leads to worry. It affects your mood and the quality of your work. When you stop putting off your tasks for later, you reduce the chance of stress.
