Harvard’s 4 simple ways to boost your energy

  1. Pace yourself. If you’re a go–getter, you probably like to keep going — but don’t risk overtaxing yourself. You can pace yourself and still get things done. For example, instead of burning through all your "battery life" in two hours, spread it out among morning tasks, afternoon tasks, and evening activities — with rest and meals in between.
  2. Take a walk or a nap. There’s nothing more satisfying than a short power nap when you’re pooped out. However, if you have trouble sleeping at night, know that napping can make insomnia worse. If that’s the case for you, get moving instead. Get up and walk around the block, or just get up and move around. If you are not an insomniac, though, enjoy that 20– to 30–minute power nap.
  3. Skip most supplements. You may have heard about energy–boosting or "anti–aging" supplements. There is no evidence they work.
    • DHEA. There is no evidence that DHEA offers any real benefits, and the side effects remain a question mark. You especially shouldn’t be buying it from ads in the back of a magazine, because you don’t know what’s in it.
    • Iron. Iron only improves energy if you are clearly deficient, which a doctor can check with a blood test. Unless you are low in iron, you don’t need to take it — and getting too much iron can be harmful.
    • B vitamins. It is true that B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12) help the body convert food into the form of energy that cells can burn, but taking more B vitamins doesn’t supercharge your cells. That’s a myth.
  4. Fuel up wisely. A sugary roll from the bakery delivers plenty of calories, but your body tends to metabolize them faster, and then you can end up with sinking blood sugar and fatigue. You’ll maintain a steadier energy level by eating lean protein and unrefined carbohydrates. Try low–fat yogurt with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins, and honey. Your body will take in the carb–fiber–protein mix more gradually. Don’t skip meals, either. Your body needs a certain number of calories to get through the day’s work. It’s better to space your meals out so your body gets the nourishment it needs all through the day.

You Can Reverse Heart Disease

sprritual blog

Every cell in the body eventually dies and replaced by new cell. Every day is a new opportunity to build a new body. The entire body totally rebuilds itself in less than two years with 98% in less than one year.

• Stomach lining rebuilds itself in 5 days.

• Your skin rebuilds itself in one month.

• Liver rebuilds itself in 6 weeks.

• Your DNA rebuilds itself every 2 months.

• Bone rebuilds the whole new skeleton in 3 months

• Blood rebuilds itself in 4 months.

• Brain rebuilds itself in 1 year.

You cannot swim in the same river twice. With every breath, we inhale 1022 atoms coming from all cells present in the universe. We share everything with everybody with every breath. Quadruplet atoms in the last three weeks have gone through our breath. Billion atoms out of them may have been those of Christ or Mohammad.

The very fact that our body rebuilds itself, it is possible to change the Dharma of the new cells and even prevent or regress cancers and heart diseases.

14 short stories worth reading, feeling and forwarding to all those dear to you..

1. Fall and Rise

Today, when I slipped on the wet tile floor, a boy in a wheelchair caught me before I slammed my head on the ground. He said, "Believe it or not, that’s almost exactly how I injured my back 3 years ago.

2. A father’s advice

Today, my father told me, "Just go for it and give it a try! You don’t have to be a professional to build a successful product. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic.

3. The power of uniqueness.

Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70s – what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, "Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.

4. Looking Back

Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, "Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.

5. Try and U shall know

I am blind by birth. When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father– "Dad, can I play baseball?" He said "You’ll never know until you try." When I was a teenager, I asked him, – "Dad Can I become a surgeon?" He replied "Son, you’ll never know until you try." Today I am a Surgeon, just because I tried!

6. Goodness & gratitude

Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, "On 9–11–2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center."

7. Love conquers pain

Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

8. A door closes to open another

Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

9. Looking back

Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, "I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often."

10. Affection

Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

11. Innocence

Today, in the cutest voice, my 8–year–old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, "Why?" She replied, "So you can help me save the planet." I chuckled again and asked, "And why do you want to save the planet?" "Because that’s where I keep all my stuff," she said.

12. Joy

Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2–year–old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

13. Kindness

Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, "I hope you feel better soon."

14. Sharing

Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, "We can share it."

News Around The Globe

  • Postmenopausal women had significant improvement in their lipid profile with long–term calcium and vitamin D supplementation, data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) showed. After 6 years of follow–up, supplementation was associated with a statistically significant 4.46 mg/dL decrease in LDL versus placebo, a numerical decrease in triglycerides, and a numerical increase in HDL. Estimated serum 25–hydroxyvitamin D3 (25(OH)D3) concentration had significant associations with LDL, HDL, and triglycerides, as reported in Menopause.
  • Remote monitoring in the intensive care unit was associated with lower mortality and shorter stays, a large multicenter study in the March issue of Chest showed. Adjusted hospital mortality fell by 16% and ICU mortality by 26% after implementation of telemedicine programs with audio and video connections at 56 ICUs in 32 hospitals. Total hospital and ICU stays declined significantly across all groups that stayed for at least a week. That reduction ranged from 0.5 total and 1.1 ICU days among those who stayed for 7 days or more to 3.6 and 4.5 days, respectively, among those who stayed at least 30 days
  • Severe maternal morbidity occurs in 2.9 per 1000 births and most often results from postpartum hemorrhage (47.6%), hypertensive disorders (20.5%), and cardiopulmonary complications (19.0%), according to a large cohort study published online March 5 in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
  • Women who have one ovary removed may enter menopause an average of one year earlier than women with two intact ovaries. In this retrospective cohort study of 23,580 women in Human Reproduction, those who had one ovary removed entered menopause roughly one year earlier than women with two ovaries intact (mean age 49.6 years vs. 50.7 years). Adjusting for birth cohort, parity, smoking, BMI, and age at menarche did not alter this result.
  • The visual field index underestimates the amount of neural loss in eyes affected by glaucoma, particularly in early disease. According to Amir Marvasti, a graduating medical student from Boston University School of Medicine and future resident at the University of California San Diego Shiley Eye Center, we should rely less on the visual field index in early disease as the visual field index overestimates the amount of neural tissue left in glaucoma. Findings were presented at the American Glaucoma Society 24th Annual Meeting. First results were published in PLoS One.
  • Daily ‘multitask’ requirement on working women is taking a toll on their health severely as reported in TOI dated Mar 7, 2014. A study by the Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ASSOCHAM) has found that three–fourth of working women in the age group of 32–58 suffer from some lifestyle, chronic and acute ailment such as obesity, depression, chronic backache, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart, kidney disease etc. Twenty–two per cent of women taken in the sample survey were reported to be suffering from chronic diseases and 14% of the women had acute ailments.

  • Children with asthma are most likely to have exacerbations shortly after returning to school in the fall warranting consideration of prophylaxis starting at the end of summer for some. Results of a retrospective population–based study among 82,234 asthmatic children aged 2 to 15 years published online March 10 in Pediatrics showed a temporal pattern whereby primary care visits for exacerbations peaked in early fall, shortly after returning to school.

  • Among patients with uncontrolled hypertension, those who are depressed are less likely to have their treatment intensified to achieve blood pressure goals. At two hospital–based primary care clinics, clinical inertia –– a lack of medication intensification, referral to a hypertension specialist, or work–up for identifiable hypertension –– occurred in 70% of patients with depression and 51% of those without depression (P=0.02). That difference remained significant after accounting for potential confounders (relative risk 1.49, 95% CI 1.06–2.10), they reported in a research letter in JAMA Internal Medicine.

When is your doctor at fault while prescribing antibiotic?

  • Prescribing antibiotics when no bacterial infection exists.
  • Prescribing the wrong antibiotic or the wrong dose.
  • Prescribing antibiotics for longer than necessary.
  • Prescribing strong antibiotics, when a less strong would be as effective.
  • Prescribing an expensive antibiotic when a cheaper but equally effective antibiotic is available.

When are you at fault?

  • You demand antibiotics even when the doctor thinks it is unnecessary
  • You buy an antibiotic without prescription.
  • You buy an antibiotic without a bill
  • You stop antibiotics as soon as your symptoms start improving and you do not take a full course of antibiotics.
  • When you change brands without doctors knowledge.

Weekend inadequate sleep can impair health

Around one–third people sleep less than seven hours per night on weekdays or workday, said Padma Shri, Dr. B C Roy National Awardee & DST National Science Communication Awardee, Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Sr National Vice President Indian Medical Association

Quoting a study published by National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey by CDC in 2011 Dr Aggarwal said that this is most common among individuals 20 to 59 years of age. Those who report sleeping less than seven hours per night are more likely to report difficulty concentrating than those who sleep seven to nine hours per night. The message is clear that one should treat all days as same and that inadequate sleep in week days can impair health.

About HCFI : The only National Not for profit NGO, on whose mega community health education events, Govt. of India has released two National Commemorative stamps and one cancellation stamp, and who has conducted one to one training on" Hands only CPR" of 88792 people since 1st November 2012.

The CPR 10 Mantra is – "Within 10 minutes of death, earlier the better; at least for the next 10 minutes, longer the better; compress the centre of the chest of the dead person continuously and effectively with a speed of 10×10 i.e. 100 per minute."
