Flexitarian Diet

The flexitarian diet is a plant-based diet that claims to reduce your carbon footprint & improve your health with an eating regimen that's mostly vegetarian but allows for the occassional meat dish.

This diet is the outcome of people who are adopting a more environmentally sustainable approach to their eating habits by reducing meat consumption in favor of alternative protein sources including nuts, beans, peas, and other legumes.

Junk Food over Healthy Food

The term "junk" refers to something that we wouldn't want or garbage. The point as to why junk food is called as such is because these junk foods are processed foods that offer little to no nutritional value.

The four reasons why people choose junk food over healthy foods are because of its:

  • Availability
  • Convenience
  • Cost
  • Flavor.

Understanding Stress
  • Dealing with stress is imperative as it is unavoidable in modern life.
  • Our work, family and our finances create daily stress and other external factors (like politics and terrorism) contribute to our stress levels.
  • A little bit of stress is good for you, and even make you stronger, as long as you don't let it rule your life.
  • The power of belief is actively at work with stress, which can harm you if you believe that it can.

Staying mentally strong and healthy

Prevention is the best medicine. It is really difficult to pull out of negative spirals once we've fallen into them.

  • It's hard to pull out of a major depressive episode once we're in the habit of beating ourselves up.
  • It's hard to stop worrying once we've started imagining all the worst possible outcomes.

Not that pulling out of these problems is impossible. It isn't. But it can be a struggle. Life can be much better if we can creatively avoid these negative cycles in the first place.

All About Endorphins
  • Research in the 1970s revealed that endorphins are natural narcotics inside our body, neurotransmitters that pass along signals in the nervous system.
  • Endorphins are produced during stress, pain or fear and originate from the pituitary gland, the spinal cord and other parts of the brain and nervous system.
  • There are 20 different kinds of endorphins, with beta-endorphins being the strong type.

When mentally ill, we may want to return again and again to the subject that should normally have been dealt with.

However, the loving response is to take the worry as seriously as possible and address it head-on without scoffing or denying the scale of the concern.

Your mental health is like a wallet

This metaphor means seeing your mental health as a wallet: money comes in, money comes out. How much money is in there is how many adverse events you can go through while sustaining your mental health.

We usually only worry about our mental health during distressing events, and don't take into consideration the many daily events that empty our mental health wallet, often without us realizing it.

The beaked masks from the 17th century

During the 17th century plague, doctors were said to have worn long cloak, grotesque bird-like mask, a wide-brimmed hat, and wooden cane, serving as protection against the odors coming from the plague. It was a particular sight for sure.

Why did 17th-century plague doctors wear peculiar beaked masks?

A new study reveals that even though we are exercising and eating at the same levels as 30 years ago, we are not able to sustain our weights like before, leading to obesity and other disorders. The reasons for this phenomenon:

  1. More exposure to chemicals(packaged foods, pesticides) leading to hormonal changes.
  2. Prescription drugs which have exotic side-effects.
  3. Processed foods, especially those with artificial sweeteners, which are mutating our microbiome (gut bacteria).
