Hydration for Health Initiative : Drinking Water, The Healthiest Way to Hydrate

Hydration for Health Initiative : Drinking Water, The Healthiest Way to Hydrate | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

From H4HInitiative.com:
"Our mission is to raise public awareness of healthy hydration, and encourage sustainable healthy hydration habits, by sharing scientific research, educational materials and practical tools. Nutritional advice typically focuses on food intake. Yet, the quantity and quality of the fluids we drink every day can have a significant impact on our well-being and long-term health. Therefore, one of our primary challenges is to communicate the fundamental need for healthcare policymakers and practitioners to proactively provide healthy hydration advice.

Could offices change from sitting to standing?

Could offices change from sitting to standing? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

A number of studies have suggested that constantly sitting at work is bad for you. So could workplaces be rejigged around standing up, asks would-be stander Chris Bowlby.

 

Medical research has been building up for a while now, suggesting constant sitting is harming our health - potentially causing cardiovascular problems or vulnerability to diabetes.

We can't simply fix it by heading for the gym.

 

This has big implications not just for homes - usually blamed for "couch potato" lifestyles - but for sedentary workplaces too, especially the modern office.

 

But when it comes to the average office, reducing sitting is a huge challenge. It means rethinking architecture, spending a lot of money, changing the office routine. Adjustable sit-stand desks can cost many hundreds of pounds.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 19, 2014 9:30 PM

In education, there has been a studies that suggest students learn better when they can move around and interact. Although some teachers and schools have used this in re-structuring their classrooms, generally, most classrooms are still the same, rows of desks where students sit with little other options for work. Maybe, now that this information is seeping into the mainstream adult work place, such studies and information will be given more credence for the learning and health of children!

What Happens To Your Body After Just One Workout

What Happens To Your Body After Just One Workout | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"To reap the full range of life-extending, heart-protecting, sleep-promoting, obesity-thwarting benefits of exercise, you're going to have to get some regular activity. In fact, about two and a half hours a week of it.

 

Those hours should be moderate-intensity aerobic activity (think: brisk walking), according to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. (More vigorous exercisers can cut back on time as they up the intensity, but everyone should also aim for a couple of strength-training sessions a week, according to the Guidelines.)"
