Yoga Exercise

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Different people prefer different kinds of exercises. Some like jogging in the morning or in the evening. Some work out in the gym or do weight training. Some do dance exercise and others do yoga. We do the kind of exercise that is suitable for us. People who prefer yoga are able to train and improve their body and mind. Beginners go to yoga classes and some of the more knowledgeable ones are able to practice at home. They do different poses that require concentration. To make it a bit more comfortable doing their poses on the floor, they use a comfortable yoga blanket like the mexican blanket.

Puzzle Playing

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Puzzles help us think and exercise our minds. Since we were children, there have been different toys like blocks that help us become creative and also the jigsaw puzzles that help us become more oriented to shapes and where they go to. A lot of us outgrow playing with puzzles but there are some like the Educa puzzles that are designed for adults to play with. There are puzzles with 1000 pieces and some even have 3000 pieces. It will take quite some time and patience to finish a puzzle. It will give some kind of achievement and a feeling of contentment to the person who has succeeded in finishing the puzzle.

Golf Balls

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

So many people love playing golf. Some are even able to visit different golf courses around the country. They like playing the different landscapes and difficulties while sharpening their skills. But most of all, they like to have fun while playing. A lot of players have their own logo golf balls. It may have their signature or some kind of logo. Some even get custom golf balls at GolfBox.com. It helps them find their golf balls easier especially when playing with others. It can somehow make one feel at ease when playing with his own golf ball rather than rent or borrow one from the club.

Youth Fitness

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Physical education and sports are included in the programs or subjects in school. At a young and early age, kids are taught of exercise and how to keep their body fit and healthy. Teachers and trainers also learn of youth fitness in order to better train their students on how to live a healthy lifestyle. There are even institutions that study fitness for kids and also teach instructors and trainers on how to teach and train their kids. The health of our future people is an important concern and teaching them to stay healthy will allow them to live longer and better lives.

Strolling with the Baby

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Babies are so cute and there’s always a feeling of some kind of serene happiness when we look at them. Mothers take them for a walk in the morning to get a bit of the morning sun. We see them walking their babies in the park on their strollers. Some moms who have a couple of babies with them have their own double baby stroller. The strollers are quite a big help for mothers to get to other places without carrying the baby. The baby can also sleep on the stroller without too much burden on the mother.

Nuts and Bolts

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Not all people are really good with their hands or with manual labor. There are some who are good at building things and improving things like their own homes. They are quite the handyman though not all of them work as a carpenter. But like all those who try to improve their homes, they also have their own supply of screws, bolts and nuts. They know the difference or usage of the carriage bolt with the elevator bolt or any other available bolt, screw or fastener used in carpentry or for building. These simple bolts and screws are what keeps things together and using the right ones would make the structure sturdier. It must be great being able to build your own house using your own design or at least improve it and making it look better and feel better about it.

Horseback Riding

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Somehow it looks so easy riding on the horse. But riding on a running horse that also jumps may be a bit too exciting for someone who doesn’t really have experience with it. It is also a bit uncomfortable after a time even if the horse is just walking or trotting. I guess that is why equestrian clothing has been designed to help the riders a bit and feel little bit comfortable on the horse. The clothing is designed for a bit more grip on the horse while providing more cushion on certain parts of the body.

Treasure Hunting

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Treasure hunting may be something that kids would do for fun but kids at heart can also participate in it. The kids will have a lot more interest when they use a garett metal detector. Looking out for treasure is hard but it is a lot more exciting when a metal detector is used. Things like silver rings or gold necklaces might be buried somewhere. Watching them try to find buried treasure and seeing their hearts leap when something is found is fun enough.

Brain Health

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Whenever we study and learn, several things happen in our brain: new cells generate, new connections are created between cells, and existing connections between certain cells are strengthened or removed. Studies show that stimulating environment and the presence of beta-endorphin (the good mood hormone) lead to good cell growth in our brains. The Neurological Foundation of New Zealand says these factors affect brain health:

Regular physical exercise. This protects the brain and the way it processes information. Exercise boosts levels of brain-protective chemicals and reduces stress.

Adequate sleep. A good night’s sleep recharges the brain and allows the body to rest and heal. Our brain consolidates memories while we sleep. Inadequate sleep affects the way our brain cells function and can increase the risk of stroke and depression. About seven to nine hours of sleep a night is ideal.

Balanced diet. Your diet should be low in cholesterol and saturated fat. Studies show that foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (e.g., fish) are good for the brain.

Social connections. Friendships and social networks are important as we age. Good mood hormones help us create new brain cells and keep them healthy.

Mental workout. Use it or lose it! Keeping the brain active and challenged increases its vitality, generates new brain cells, and bolsters connections and reserves.
