Sleep: The Top Five Things That Keep You Awake At Night…

Posted by Saito on April 7, 2009

Do you have problems sleeping at night? Many teens have troubles sleeping at night, let’s take a looks at The Top Five Things that may cause you to stay awake at night…

The Top Five Things That Keep You Awake At Night:

1. Your Mattress.

For many people having an uncomfortable mattress that does not fit their body causes them to stay awake at night…some even need special therapeutic mattresses.

2. Daytime Naps.

If you have constant daytime naps this may cause you to have more energy at night, therefore keeping you awake.

3. Staying Up Too Late.

Some (like me) tend to spend longer nights, causing there bodies to go through energy spikes, shakiness and anxiety. All of this can keep you awake at night.

4. Caffeine Beverages.

If you have a drink or a food item chucked full of caffeine that can definitely keep awake all night long buzzing with unwanted energy.

5. Stress.

Stress can keep you awake at night, if you have a problem and are trying to sort it out in your mind your focus shifts to that singular problem; keeping you awake.

– – – – – – – – –

I highly recommend that if you have a sleeping problem at night, try to sort it out immediately. It’s important for you to get quality sleep so that you HGH (Human Growth Hormones) can kick in and do their job. Try to find the reasons why you are having difficulties sleeping at night.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Weight Losing Tips: Third Step

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Check out the next update called Step Four

Like my mom says “everything in moderation” take your time while eating, have a balanced diet 😀

This is one of the MOST IMPORTANT STEPS OF LOSING WEIGHT AND KEEPING A BALANCED DIET!! Having a balanced meal is essential to losing weight it’s a *must*.  If you view the previous step that dealt with staying away from cheese I had pizza and balanced the amount of cheese I consumed with a large portion of salad, that is a *Very Good* balance, perfect for your body :D.

Then there is a second important part to this, “everything in moderation”. My mom always says to eat in a good moderate direction, take it easy, have something healthy to go with something starchy or oily just like I was explaining above paragraph. Sometimes for lunch at my house I eat left overs from last night, some times it’s pasta or burritos, for lunch though this time I had pasta :D. Normally the pasta is done with thick noodles, the sauce consists of Alfredo sauce, chicken pieces and broccoli. Now this is a completely balanced meal for dinner, but for lunch I normally have an orange or an apple to go with it, you need more energy in the day and a functioning body in every single area inside and out.

The last but not least part of this whole step is very small but important, chewing your food slowly. For me I used to gobble down food without a second thought and not chew it down properly, now I consume my food slowly and speak more often at the table while eating a great meal. Why do I do this? I do this so my body can take the nutrients out of the food properly and waiting for my brain to catch up with how much I am eating, it takes twenty minutes for your brain to realize how much you have taken in to eat…so it’s important to take your time, at dinner time normally your in no rush, take it easy and relax. This is a great way of losing weight and staying healthy :D.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next step =D.

Weight Losing Tips: Fourth Step

Check out the next update called Fifth Step

Don’t stay up to late at night, get quality sleep, you will gain energy and wake up earlier in the morning 😀

Why got to sleep earlier? Well when I’m tired and have no more energy I want to sleep, but sometimes I stay up because I’m finishing either a movie or going to the next stage in a video game. THAT’S NOT WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO! You need quality sleep and I have learned this from experience, so I now try to get a great amount of sleep at night…not only do you gain energy in the morning BUT the exciting part of getting quality sleep is what happens after one/two hour(s) of rest. HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Kicks in when you are asleep, it helps you grow and prevents aging 😀 (sweet!). You, again I say this, “gain energy” and give your body the time it needs to recuperate from the other day :D.

I used to stay up till 11:00 PM with my family and that was taking me down…so I started a schedule, let me know what you think of it :D:

1. Eat dinner get extra chores or finish up school work.(normal)

2. After I’m done with that I get comfortable and just chill with my family.

3. If I watch a movie I’ll watch something calming, so I can go to sleep easier.

4. After that it’s normally around 8-9:00 I get a glass of water and go to bed.

THERE, just those four steps. Not taking it to far, just relaxing and when I wake up in the morning I’m energized and ready for another day 🙂

Stay tuned for the step 😀

Weight Losing Tips: Fifth Step

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Check out the next update called Sixth Step

Drink plenty of water.

WATER, LOT’S of water :D. Water is one of the bases of life, water keeps you moving, keeps you healthy and strong, cleanses your body of impurities, helps fight the common cold and sooo much more :D.

But what else can it do for those who are over weight or unhealthy? Well I drink (at least) eight ounces daily, sometimes I personally drink more since I am a bigger person and need much more water :D. When I started drinking eight cups daily I heard it from my mom who heard it from my uncle (ROFL long story) and my mom said he was losing weight. He originally had a small gut but when he drank the right amount of water he cleansed his body from extra fat. Intrigued by what my mom said I decided to drink the the recommended amount of water. I had at least 3 inches of flab around my was pretty sad and wanted SOMETHING to help me with my weight problem, when I started drinking 8 ounces of water a day I noticed results within a month! I (finally) could walk around my neighborhood without getting tired, I could fit in a pair of jeans or shorts without feeling embarrassed that my sides would stick out to far. It was and still is a wonderful experience…

Then when I wanted to learn more about what it could do for me I looked up the human body benefits from water on Google…and the following I am quoting is from <a href=”http://www.dorchesterhealth.org/water.htm”>Hdor Chester Health.org</a>:

* Water helps regulate our body temperature through perspiration, which dissipates excess heat &amp; cools our bodies.

* We even need water to breathe! As we take in oxygen &amp; excrete CO2, our lungs must be moistened by water. We lose about 1 to 2 pints of water each day just exhaling.

* Asthma is frequently relieved when water intake is increased. Histamine plays a key role in regulating the way the body uses &amp; distributes water &amp; helps control the body’ s defense mechanisms. In asthmatics, histamine level increases with dehydration. Our defense for the body is to close down the airways.

* The kidneys remove wastes such as uric aced, urea &amp; lactic acid, all of which must be dissolved in water. When there isn’t sufficient water, those wastes are not effectively removed, which may result in damage to the kidneys.

* Water lubricates our joints. The cartilage tissues found at the ends of long bones &amp; between the vertebrae of the spine hold a lot of water, which serves as a lubricant during the movement of the joint. When the cartilage is will hydrated, the two opposing surfaces glide freely, &amp; friction damage is minimal. If the cartilage is dehydrated, the rate of “abrasive” damage is increased, resulting in joint deterioration &amp; increased pain.

* The actively growing blood cells in the bone marrow take priority over the cartilage for the available water that goes through the bone structure.

* Rheumatoid joint pain frequently decreases with increased water intake &amp; flexing exercises to bring more circulation to the joints.

* 75% of the upper body weight is supported by the water volume that is stored in the spinal disc core. 25% is supported by the fibrous materials around the disc. The spinal joints are dependent on different hydraulic properties of water which is stored in the disc core. Back pain is frequently alleviated with hydration.

* Brain tissue is 85% water. Although the brain is only 1/50th of the body weight, it uses 1/20th of the blood supply. With dehydration, the level of energy generation in the brain is decreased. Depression &amp; chronic fatigue syndrome are frequently results of dehydration.

* Migraine headaches may be an indicator of critical body temperature regulation at times of “heat stress.” Dehydration plays a major role in bringing on migraines. Dehydration causes stress &amp; stress causes further dehydration.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Wow 😀 that’s why it is so good to drink plenty of water, think of the benefit’s, if you do this you will change your life in a GOOD way :D, take it from me drink plenty of water, take a water bottle/container where ever you go so you gain wonderful benefits 😀

Stay posted for the next step tomorrow…=D

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS NOT FRIEND: Part 3

Posted by Saito on December 30, 2008

Let’s bring another light to the subject of HFCS. Deep info on how it EFFECTS you…

In Suzanne Summers latest book “Breakthrough” she mentions that HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) is a brain stimulant O.o, which isn’t a good thing you see…you gain instant energy from it and it wears your brain/body down while giving you this energy, which only breaks your body :/.

Now you know it brings in extra weight to your body BUT do you know how quickly it effects?

Now I personally have experienced the rapid changes of HFCS for my entire life! But I didn’t really hit it bad till I had an accident, I ruptured my spleen (extremely gross) and that put me out of exercise for six months…though I healed and my spleen did as well I was in bad shape after all that time. JUST IN SIX MONTHS I WAS OVER WEIGHT!! I was eating normal everyday food you would find from a grocery store and in six months I was overweight…this just didn’t settle with me at ALL! I had to get rid of all the extra weight…so I started to learn more about staying healthy at that time of my life, studying techniques, health products, personal experiences from others you know ANYTHING that could truly help me…and so after three years (this whole problem started when I was ten lol and I am now fifteen O.o) of watching and learning about the food market I learned about HFCS. I was of course STUNNED by what I learned…it was in (as I stated before in my other posts) mostly everything we owned for food lol. It brings in the pounds, it wore me down so I couldn’t have the energy to get better and I was always tired…one day my family and I decided that we should shop differently from then on. We found our favorite super market called Trader Joe’s, I know I’ve spoken about it before but not as much as I am now. It has to be one of the best organic food markets out there, it has the best quality food my family and I have EVER tasted it’s so awesome :D. Once we went over there to get our food products we found that all of their food contained NO HFCS!! It was great! We were total Trader Joe’s shoppers from then on, I lost the weight I used to have just by eating their food and finally gaining the energy to lift weights, exercise and finally just RUN for the fun of it…

So yeah all of this was because of High Fructose Corn Syrup…none of it was fun for me. Look believe me it’s so worth getting off of HFCS it really is…you WILL see benefits from staying away from HFCS. Though it may take a while to get off of it just try to stay away from it and you will see results.

Heh well that’s what HFCS did to me…stay tuned for the next update :D.
