How Eating Healthy foods can lead to Happiness! Good Health Tips

Everyone talks about how having healthy food can increase your life quality, your body metabolism, increasing lifespan etc. but apart from all these beneficial effects it also increases your productivity and gives you happiness. Consuming healthy foods can be an extremely tough choice at the start but eventually, it will really have better effects and leave you craving more.

Eating healthy includes a balanced diet which consists of the variety of different foods and providing adequate amounts of nutrients required for good health. It gives you the energy to keep going throughout the day and is also helpful for cell growth and repair. Healthy food help you stay strong and healthy and also help in preventing diseases. Deficiencies in vitamins like A, B, C, and E and other elements like zinc, magnesium, selenium etc. can lead to the weakening of immune system and make us more prone to various illnesses.

healthy foods

Reasons why Healthy food makes us Happy:

  • Weight loss

Consuming carbohydrate-rich foods which are usually simple carbohydrates can lead to an increase in weight because our body keeps releasing insulin to metabolize those foods and thus preventing fat cells to metabolize. It increases the number of fat cells for later storage of excess glucose. Healthy foods like quinoa, oats, rice etc. have complex carbohydrates which have more fiber and take a longer time to digest. This ultimately results in lesser cravings and decreases the will to consume again and again leading to weight loss.

  • Anti-aging

Healthy foods like olive oil and fish oils contain omega-3 fatty acids which strengthen skin membranes and help retaining moisture. Blueberries, kale, and spinach have high amounts of antioxidants which protect cell damage done by UV rays. Thus, these foods help in anti-aging.

  • Less stress

Though during stress, we always turn to our comfort food like pasta, chips and other junk they make us more lethargic and decrease our ability to stress. Research says healthier food options like high fiber, carbohydrate-rich foods release serotonin, a hormone that causes relaxation. Chronic stress leads to weakening of immune system and to overcome this, high antioxidants containing fruits and vegetables are beneficial.

  • Better sleep

Better sleep quality can be achieved by taking healthier foods and consuming less during nights. Mostly sleep disturbances and an inadequate amount of sleep is usually due to high intake of sugar, fats, high intake of caffeine before sleep because these cause neuronal disturbances and require more time to digest. Healthier options like eating less during nights, consuming lycopene, vitamin B9, calcium etc. improve sleeping patterns.

  • Better brain and heart health

Eating high-quality foods containing lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants nourishes the brain and protects it from oxidative stress (waste-free radicals produced by cells when they use oxygen). Unsaturated or polyunsaturated fats are a healthier option for heart and prevent coronary diseases and low sodium intake prevents the risk of developing a high blood pressure.

All these factors help in maintaining the body health perfectly and when your body functions properly you tend to be happy and radiate that happiness. This leads to clean eating, better habits, positive thinking and more importantly loving yourself. Thus, shifting to a healthy diet is a good choice and helps in making our body a better place.

We have industries manufacturing these daily pleasures of ours and its emission and effluents adding worsening the situation. As an old saying “Excess of everything is bad” and we humans are always indulged in overdoing things so a situation arises called ‘pollution’.

Pollution is a heterogeneous complex mixture of gases, liquids and particulate matter (PM) that comes out of man-made or natural sources. The greenhouse gases such CO, CFCs, SO2, CH4 causing global warming, thus indirectly affecting us. Pollutants like CO, SO2, N20 cause different health hazards which have a short term or long term effect on our health. Prolonged exposure to these pollutants cause grievous such as lungs cancer, emphysema, cardiovascular diseases. There are similar water pollutants such as heavy metals (Hg, Ag), organic and inorganic materials. Due to the direct dumping of such pollutants into the water bodies without treatment causes deposition of such in the water bodies. Intake of water from such sources can cause Metal poisoning such as ‘Mercury poisoning’ and multiple organ failure. Artificial light and noise often drawn out of landscapes. In Artic sound of oil and gas exploration are so loud that the Belugas and whales have difficulty in feeding and breeding. Light pollution disrupts the circadian rhythms in humans and animals leading to cancers and losing of routes in seas and oceans by the creature.

There is nothing to be surprised of that the number of casualties due to various ailments arising out of the pollution is going on increasing. As nowadays we have heard about capital becoming the most polluted city of India followed but our other major metropolitan cities. There is need of surveillance and strict adherence to rules that governs the pollution control. Measures such as treatment of the emission and the effluent of the factories before release or dump into air or water respectively. Setting up industries on the outskirts of the cities. Vehicle pooling and more use of public transport is a major step toward decreasing the air pollution.

As we humans need fresh air to breath and water to survive, we need this very environment of ours for our very survival. A human can survive for 3 days without water but only mere 3 minutes without air. So don’t let our future go up in smoke. “Stopping pollution is the best solution

Facelift surgery

Facelift surgery a medical procedure performed to reduce the manifestation of facial wrinkles and premature signs of ageing, with the objective of recovering the overall facial appearance and jaw. Facelift surgery helps to reverse the harmful effects of time, stress, and exposure to the related elements.

To add value to traditional full facelifts, there are more than a few previous variation of the procedure to deal with specific areas of the face. Many surgeons majorly use advanced and minimally invasive techniques to reduce uneasiness and downtime.  As Facelifts are not covered by insurance;  there are many excellent financing options to help rhytidectomy patients supervise the cost of this procedure.

For competent patients, facelift surgery can be an outstanding investment, on condition that a fresher, more youthful appearance is maintained for years to come.

This is an important factor as during the procedure, the surgeon first tightens the facial skin to reduce the further appearance of wrinkles. Successful completion of procedure and healing with optimal results depends on having skin that is confirmed to its new, improved contours.
  • Strong bone structure: a facelift applicant will have a well-defined underlying bone structure to provide a strong under support and contribute to satisfying results post surgery. Patients with less distinct bone features may not benefit much from facial implants as an alternative or addition to a facelift.
  • Realistic expectations: Consulting a qualified trained plastic surgeon in this procedure can always help a patient obtain the necessary information needed to make the right decision about this facelift surgery.
  • Good and large health: A good facelift applicant will have to be generally healthy and will inform his or her surgeon of any preexisting medical conditions well in advance. A facelift is an intensely invasive procedure that requires significant healing and recovery, so it is indispensable that the patient is physically prepared for surgery.
  • Loose skin on the face or neck: Facelift candidates typically want to remove excess skin from the face or neck, tightening skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles simultaneously. The surgeon trims the loose skin during the procedure.



Step 1 – Anesthesia

Medications are administered for the comfort during the surgical procedure. The medication choices include intravenous sedation and general anaesthesia.

A variety of other procedures can further enhance the outcome of a facelift. They include:

  • Facial implants or fat transfer to improve contour
  • Resurfacing techniques to improve the tone and texture of facial skin
  • Wrinkle reduction by injection of fat or fillers

Step 2 – The incision

Depending on the degree of change the patient expects, the  facelift choices include a traditional facelift, limited incision facelift or a neck lift.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions

The incisions will be closed with sutures that may dissolve or may need to be removed after a few days. Some surgeons use skin glues to seal the incisions.

How do I floss my teeth?

You are never fully dressed without your smile

Isn’t it is true that smile is the best curve and we all wish for white sparkling smile. Now we all are very much aware about brushing and in twenty first century, it’s a morning routine which we follow certainly. But in this article, we will talk about the additive practice with brushing which is not quite famous in India is “dental floss”. Joel Spolsky said that, “Writing specs is like flossing: everybody agrees that it’s a good thing, but nobody does it.”This statement by Joel clearly expressed that being a good habit flossing is still not practised faithfully.


History of floss!

In year 1819, Levi Spear Parmly was the first to introduce the idea of interdental cleaning with filamentous material along with dentifrices and tooth brush. Later in 1882, unwaxed silk floss was introduced by Codman & Shurtleff. But in year 1887, Johnson & Johnson were the one who marketed the dental floss and made it available. But during the second world war the production of silk was foreshortening and Dr Charles C. Bass invented nylon dental floss. Nylon was not only more readily available, but it was also more durable. Within a century, the idea of cleaning between the teeth with floss was common dental knowledge.


Why do we need to floss?

Although we brush daily and we think that our basic regime to maintain an oral hygiene is completed, but in actual brushing only removes the plaque from the chewing surface of your teeth whereas the areas between the teeth or interdental spaces are still remains the habitat of the residual bacteria.

Flossing helps in removing plaque from the hard to reach area by toothbrush. According to the American Dental Association, we should floss daily to maintain a good oral hygiene. Combination of daily flossing and brushing prevents the dental caries and periodontal diseases. Adapting the habit of flossing is one of the easiest, inexpensive and safest methods of minimizing the risk of long-term dental diseases.

In recent studies by Dr Roger Sandre, flossing is always important especially when you are undergoing active cancer treatment because the patients with low immunity are prone towards the risk of getting infections and dental infections can cause life threatening conditions if the infection is not cleared from the blood stream. So, to keep your dear ones who are fighting with cancer let them know that the growth of bacteria should not get out of control.

But we can say that regardless of your health status one should always have the habit of flossing.


How to floss

1.Take a 18 inches long floss thread and wind it along your middle finger of each hand and use the thumb to direct the floss in upper teeth.

2.Now pinch the floss between the two thumbs and forefingers of opposite hands such that in the end 1-2 inches long floss will be there in between your hands.

3.By using zig-zag motion gently guide the floss between your teeth and under your gum line until you feel the resistance.

4.Bend the floss around each tooth in a “C” shape and each tooth should be floss thoroughly with a new section of floss.

5.Remember to floss behind your back teeth.


Most of the patients attribute their lack of dental flossing due to the lack of motivation and difficulties in using the floss as they do not know the correct technique of flossing.

In the end, we can say that there is only one goal that’s to keep working and keep flossing.
