Sugar: a threat to our health

Sugarcane is the world's third most valuable crop, yet it has little benefit to humanity. Obesity, cancer, dementia, heart disease and diabetes has spread to nations where sugar-based carbohydrates are available in abundance.

We need to take a step back and understand how sugar has grown to become a threat to our health.

Chlorophyll's Skin Benefits

There are limited studies on the effects of liquid chlorophyll on our skin and it is important to keep in mind that dietary supplements don't go under any type of FDA approval.

To assess its true effectiveness we must take a look at chlorophyll - it is a semi-synthetic form of chlorophyll and is different from the natural version found in plants.

Chlorophyll may hold potential benefits for the skin because of its antioxidant properties help with anti-aging and it also helps treat acne, but research still remains limited.

An Active Lifestyle Over Sitting

Many journals stress the importance of developing active lifestyles, however, having a sedentary lifestyle is heavily amplified as it makes up the vast majority of our day.

Studies suggest that excessive levels of sedentary time have been linked to many diseases. Except for a person's own perception, it is equally important to measure one's own subjective well-being because how an individual feels about their own health may not always align with what their bodies may demonstrate.

Is all sitting bad for you? It depends on the context

The croissant

The croissant is a flaky breakfast food that is so culturally iconic and French that many defer to its native pronunciation (krwa-sohn).

Yet, in the 19th century, the French viewed the croissant as a foreign novelty that was only sold in special Viennese bakeries in Paris's wealthier parts.

Popping Bubble Wraps
  • There is something uniquely satisfying in popping sheets of bubble wraps and it seems to relate to the calming power of touch.
  • Studies on undergraduates showed that popping two sheets of bubble wraps made them feel calmer, awake and alert.
  • Popping bubbles is a way to release muscle tension, and just like clicking the pen or jiggling one's foot, it helps reduce stress and stabilize one's nervous energy.

Stress and anxiety: related, but not synonymous states

We often use the words “anxiety” and “stress” interchangeably. Both are normal, adaptive responses to life’s challenges and share many symptoms ( for example, worry, stomach aches, restlessness, muscle tension, racing thoughts, headaches, sleepless nights, etc.)

But despite their similarities, there are important differences between the two. And knowing the differences is the first step towards finding relief.

Get quality sleep

Sleeping is one of the most important things that you need so that your body won't feel exhausted on a daily basis. Try to sleep about 7-8 hours on a daily basis consistently.

Sleeping too little or too much can be damaging to your body which can cause many complications such as: weight gain, lowered immunity, increased risk of diabetes and heart problems, and an increase in risk of accidents as well.
