How To Keep Yourself Energised All Day Long?

How To Keep Yourself Energised All Day Long?

All of us have our 'good and bad hours' each day. While there are the night owls, who are more productive and ideating in the late night hours, there are others who like to be the early bird that literally catches the worm.  For both these categories, there are again hours where the energy wanes. Did you know there are some simple techniques that can help to maintain consistent levels of energy throughout the day?

As much as possible, try and maintain a regular routine in terms of waking up, eating at the same hours as closely as possible, and retiring for the day. The biological clock or circadian rhythm needs to be maintained as much as possible if high productivity is desired.

Here are some things that can be completely and easily controlled to keep your energy levels steady through the day.

  1. Vitamin & mineral deficiency: It is important that we include loads of fresh fruits and vegetables in our diet, in order to nourish our body with required vitamin and minerals. This is important that a deficiency of vitamins like B12, D can often lead to fatigue or low energy levels. 
  2. Hypothyroidism: Fatigue is one of the most common signs hypothyroidism and as per clinal records it has been established patients suffering from hypothyroidism have reported a significat drop in the level of fatigue by getting their hypothyroid treated.
  3. Sleep patterns: Be it going to bed or waking up, try and maintain a pattern that does not vary too much, at least not drastically.  After waking up, a good dose of light in the morning is very helpful. If your work requires you to sleep during the day, ensure you get up into a room that is well and brightly lit.
  4. Exercise: Whether is it Saturday or cloudy, a 30 minute workout does magic like nothing else. Get outdoors and be it a walk or a run, cycling or swimming, you will see nothing else boosts your energy as well as this. 
  5. Nutrition: Reduced carbohydrates, a good dose of protein, ample hydration, adequate fiber intake, and good quantity of dry fruits are somethings to definitely follow. Start with a good breakfast that can boost your energy requirements for the day and eat less as the day goes by. 
  6. Caffeine: One of the most pleasant experience is to wake up to have a refreshing cup of coffee. While it sounds exotic, the body benefits more if this caffeine is provided sometime later in the day when the energy levels are low. 
  7. Alcohol: For many, alcohol could be a way of stress busting, but if scientifically looked at, alcohol reduces the quality of sleep and leaves you feeling unrested. It also leaves one tired and irritated. If possible, the alcohol intake should be at least 2 hours before bedtime.
  8. Power naps: Highly proven technique, where possible, a power nap of 15 minutes is believed to boost up energy levels significantly.

These are some methods to boost your energy levels.  Most of it something completely controllable and changeable by you, all it requires is a conscious effort from you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

If painless bleeding then its normal but if, she feel severe pain during menses then it may be due to pelvic infection or pelvic pathological disease. So, get an ultrasound of lower abdomen.

Hello, Thanks for the query. A lady with diabetes can get get pregnant and deliver a healthy child, but a few precautions need to be taken - 1) Shift to Insulin once pregnancy is confirmed. 2) Blood glucose has to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg throughout the pregnancy. 3) Higher glucose levels can harm the fetal brain growth, later there may be large baby and pregnancy outcome can be bad. If all these points are kept in mind and blood glucose is maintained as mentioned, then there will be no problem. Consult a good diabetologist locally. Thanks.

After first pregnancy chances increases. You have done unprotected sex very close to your ovalution time. You can check pregnancy once 7 days over period date. Right now tests are not effective. Consult for further guidance.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user. Infertility in pcod is not a problem that can be solved only with these two medicines instead it requires first knowing the exact cause of your infertility that means even pcod can affect your infertility in various ways. Second proper monitoring of the follicle at different stages is required, followed by the fact that the gynecologist has to give you proper information about timing of intercourse and then so on .so kindly get urself enrolled with a gynecologist in your area and get detailed information, counselling and planning about the same. Ovral is an oral contraceptive which can be used for regularising your periods but it prevents pregnancy as being a contraceptive agent. So take care and go ahead.

Pain In Hands - How Can It Be Relieved?

Pain In Hands - How Can It Be Relieved?

Every day we use our hands the most to get everything done. From drinking water to typing on the keyboard (and today on mobile phones); from holding the newspaper still when reading it to taking down academic notes- we use our hands for everything. But our hands like all other parts of the body have the capacity to carry out their functions. At times, we unknowingly put a lot of strain on our hands and they start to pain. Hand pains are quite common in everyone and it is equally common to practice certain exercises to control them quickly.

If you experience frequent pains in the hands, these are some of the exercises you can resort to.

  1. Fist: You do not always make a fist while punching people. Sometimes you make a fist to tighten your hand muscles and nerves and smoothen the blood flow in your hands. This helps in reducing the pain in your hands to a great extent. In fact, folding your hand to a fist can also help in preventing hand pain.

  2. Finger Bends: Bend each finger tightly towards your palm for at least a minute and then release it. Do it separately for each of the five fingers on your hand. This would ease out the tension in each of the fingers and normalize blood flow. This helps in curing any finger pain that you might be experiencing. It is especially a great exercise to prevent pain from developing in your thumb and index finger.

  3. Thumbs Up: Usually, we show the thumbs up sign to signal all is well and best wishes to people. But it is also an exercise if continued for some time. All you have to do is place your palm on a table and curl all your fingers except the thumb inwards. Stretch the thumb outwards and hold it in this position counting up to ten. Then curl your thumb towards the palm. This exercise too helps in stretching the muscles.

  4. Wrist: An important part of the hand is the wrist. The wrist joints are a very crucial set of bones and they tend to get injured very fast. They are also delicate enough to be sprained if the hand is turned abruptly. To avoid such injuries, strengthen the wrist and reduce wrist pain, a lot of wrist exercises are also prescribed. The simplest one is to extend your hand and move the wrist in anti-clockwise and clockwise directions.

Thus, these are some of the ways in which you can ease the pain in your hand in no time and go about normally with your daily chores. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Doctor, have you ever hear or read any article where a girl got pregnant from grinding with boy with all her cloths on? While dry humping with a girl boy cummed in his underwear and jeans and that jeans touched girl boxer above her vagina. Can the sperm in the semen pass through 3 layers of cloths to her vagina to impregnate her? Chances of pregnancy in that case?

Every month, when I have my cycle, I suffer from menstrual cramps for the first 3 days. My entire body from waist down is subjected to horrible pain. Therefore, to reduce the pain, I usually take painkillers-meftal spas or panadol. I would just like to know that is it safe to take painkillers during menstrual cycles? and if not, then what would you recommend?

Gay sex is very unnatural thats why causes lot of problems also if you had unprotected sex get tested for std. It may last a few days at the MOST, but it does go away. Just be sure to keep the area clean so it doesn't get infected. Use warm water to soak your anal area in it. Also use analgesic cream ask for it at medical shop. Never ever indulge in such unnatural activity that can cause lot and lot of damage physically and mentally. Opt for ayurvedic medicines that will help you solve all your problems naturally and without any side effects.

If you are having normal periods. Its highly unlikely that you r pregnant. Even then if you want to be sure. Do urine pregnancy test yourself using preganews etc. If its positive, get an ultrasound pelvi done. Do not worry even if you r pregnant. As pills r available now a days for termination of pregnancy but these should be taken under strict guidance of a gynaecologist. Avoid self medication.
