It's a known fact that water is the elixir of life. Our body consists of 60% water and interestingly our brain is made up of 73% water. Not keeping yourself hydrated affects our brain activity as well. What happens if you don't drink enough water? Well, a lot of things. Muscle cramps, fatigue, extreme thirst, dry mouth, mild constipation, temporary lightheadedness and more. How does hydration help us? It keeps the blood pressure optimised, body temperature correct, joints are lubricated, waste is removed out of the body, good digestion. Exercising and keeping the body fit is important. But do not forget to keep your body hydrated this summer.
How TV can ruin your weight loss plan Every person during their childhood would remember their mother or grandmother telling them to concentrate on eating their food first. Well, it’s true even to this day. There is simple logic and scientific research behind that statement. Professor Charles Spence, Head of Crossmodal Research Laboratory at Oxford University said: "I would suggest turning off the television because that's probably the single worst thing you can do for consumption. If you're paying attention to what's on the TV screens, you're not paying attention to what's going into your mouth and you end up eating as much as a third more." In a research, it was observed that people, who eat while distracted like watching TV, tend to eat more not only at that time, but also during the later part of the day. So, if you are watching your weight, or if you have undergone a weight loss surgery, it is sensible to switch off the TV while eating and concentrate on what you eat.
