Can Eating Carbs at Dinner Help You Lose Weight?

Can Eating Carbs at Dinner Help You Lose Weight? | Healthy Living To The Max | Scoop.it
Eating to lose weight may mean shifting your food around during the day.

 

My Thoughts

I have never thought about this method. Eating your carbs at dinner can help for the next day especially around lunch time and you're still hungry. Yes, that may mean no carbs at dinner but if your looking for energy and want to lose weight, I suggest trying to just eat your carbs at dinner. The article even showed a study sampling 78 officers and i'm surprised they were able to lose weight, body fat, and better measure their blood sugar and lipid levels opposed to the officers who ate carbs during the day. I might try this as well sometime in order to decrease my BMI and obtain a lean body.

Mini-relaxations to ease holiday stress

Mini-relaxations to ease holiday stress | Healthy Living To The Max | Scoop.it

With Black Friday upon us, the holiday season is now officially underway. Although the next month or so provides many opportunities to see family and friends, be generous, and spread good cheer, it can also be a difficult time.

 

My thoughts

After reading this article, I find the mini-relaxation plans suggested are a huge help when your running on little to no time and just need a quick breather. The relaxation plan in this article goes into detail about what can you do to relieve some stress in 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, etc. which can be very helpful even trying these plans in between classes on account of the fact school can be very stressful at times. What I enjoyed the most about this article is the 2 minute relaxation plan, where I'll be taking 1 deep breath for every number I count down too since deep-breathing helps relieves stress and some of the bad toxins in your body.

Beyond spirituality: the role of meditation in mental health

Beyond spirituality: the role of meditation in mental health | Healthy Living To The Max | Scoop.it

Science is beginning to show that meditation can have a major impact on the way our brain and bodies function, write Jonathan Krygier and Andrew Kemp.

 

My thoughts

After reading this article, I learned the impacts of meditating to your life and i'm shocked (but in a good way!) Meditating has many perks when it comes to improving your mental health. You'll be able to reduce blood pressure, lower your heart rate, and have deeper and calmer breathing. You can also increase your immune functiionality and perhaps change the structure of your brain. Of course, meditation also helps relieve your anxiety which helps me a lot, even though I'm so young, I've been very stressed lately but meditating has helped a lot! Meditating helps prevent cellular damage to your brain caused by stress and helps regulate your "amygalda" which is a region in your brain that responds to threats.

Meditation has always been an intriguing form of stress relief to me. Of the many different techniques, this one seems to be the most difficult for people to do. To be able to seperate our mind from the world around us is a daunting task, which is why I am glad that I found this article. This helped tremendously with my education on the subject, and I walked away far more intrigued than I was beforehand. Although I will probably stick to easier ways of reducing stress, I am glad that I at least was able to learn a bit more about meditation and the benefits that it brings.

Find a sense of peace with one of these stress-busting apps.

 

While technology is supposed to make our lives easier, it has also left many of us feeling more stressed. We have emails rolling in at all times, phone calls in the car and, thanks to Wi-Fi, we can conduct business almost anytime from anywhere. The workday never seems to end -- and that's not healthy.

 

It may be impossible to unplug your life, so try these five, free apps for your iPhone, iPad or Android phone to help relieve stress.

 

My Thoughts

I'd have to agree in today's society, technology can definitely add some uncessary stress into your daily routine. Whether it's malfunctions on your phone/computer or your getting constant work calls and emails while your spending time with your family. The apps suggested in this article may help relieve some stress. One of the apps were called Breathe2Easy apps and this would help guide you through a series of deep breathing which is a technique to relieve stress and release bad toxins from your family. I believe this app may help me with my relxation plan for my personal focus project.
