Life Changing Reasons To Eat Your Greens Daily

In today's stressful life, we have so much to focus on, whether it's juggling work, family or friends. In this rut, our eating habits go for a toss and we forget what our mothers have been telling us since we were kids, to eat our vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are the roughage we need to keep our digestive systems functioning well and protect us from developing serious illnesses such as cancer.

Yes, you read it right! Adding a recommended portion of greens to our diet is a really promising way of reducing the risk of cancer for an average person. While it has to be admitted that they may not always taste great, by a long shot, mothers have been right in forcing their kids to eat their quota.

In fact, the ancient medicinal field of Ayurveda justifies this as it says the vegetables are required to replenish the body of its juices. Also, there has been scientific research which has been able to link lower cancer rates with people who consume green and yellow vegetables.

So, now that it is well known that these vegetables are good for us, the question is how we go about including them in our diets.

That brings us, to the selection of the green vegetables. One should remember that these vegetables usually shrink on being cooked, so he or she should account for that. What a person is going to select really depends on his or her taste but Swiss chard, sorrel and turnip greens are just some options, along with collard, the wonder health food that is kale, and even the simple, well known spinach which is much maligned among children around the world!

Also, it is very important to make sure the vegetables are washed adequately. An additional thing to be kept in mind is that it is not good to cook these vegetables in cookware that is made out of aluminium. This alters the taste of the vegetables.

The health benefits of vegetables like these goes well beyond reducing the risk of an individual to cancer. The amount of iron in the blood, also called haemoglobin, is given a mega boost by consuming dark green vegetables. The array of health benefits even apart from this is just so immense, to say the very least. Vitamins A, B1, B2 as well as K are just some of the vitamins which green vegetables are rich in. Other than that, these vegetables are replete with magnesium, potassium and so much else!

After all this, there is no reason not to have green leafy vegetables on a daily basis. Mothers' wisdom can't really be argued with, right?

Hey Dr. it may find weird but I sometimes forget the things which I do like I close gate and when I come up it confuse me that have I done or not beside that I suffer head ache even I can find some mood change like without reason I shout and cry for small things Pls tell me is this a Normal or a symptoms of a disease.

What happens to me? (Age: 24) 1) I feel very lazy. 2) No one is very much interested in my conversation. 3) Many times when I talk to someone, I don't get the response as I expected because they don't understand me, they don't get my points, may be because I can't explain them properly. Many times I talk immaturely. Sometimes people ignore me and don't wanna talk with me. 3) IMPORTANT: Racing thoughts. Specially after fighting with someone. 4) If a dog passes by me while walking or anywhere, suddenly my heart beats increases for 3-4 seconds and if it barks at me heart beats increases until the dog stop barking. So I feel very scary with dogs. 5) If someone makes fun of mine, I feel very sad if I feel this joke (FUN) is very insulting. And rewind all these things before sleep time (at night) and its hurts me lot. But I controlled myself and manage it to forget. Also I am not looks very matured and smart, so either not very well interested in me (Specially girls). 6) I am very narrow minded. I can't be very friendly with people. So, I never stand with group of people and talk with them. 7) my some (8-10) hairs becomes white and many people says its because of tension (stress). But I never feel stress because I don't have any sort of stress (God blesses!) I DON'T HAVE ANY BAD habits. Eating habit: 2 chapatis at morning, Rice with any grains or pulses in lunch and 3 chapatis in dinner.

Picking One Thing At A Time - How Can It Help Manage Compulsive Indecisiveness?

Picking One Thing At A Time - How Can It Help Manage Compulsive Indecisiveness?

Do you find it too hard to figure out what to wear? Does taking some important decision leave you feeling paralyzed? These indicate that you suffer from compulsive indecisiveness. Struggling with this problem leaves you stuck in one place and causes you distress. Fear of taking the wrong decision is the primary reason, which makes people indecisive. It is also likely for you to bother too much about what other people think of you.

Here are five important steps, which you should take for overcoming compulsive indecisiveness:

 

 

  1. CompulsiveForget your fear: Fear of something often causes indecisiveness. You need to figure out and write down your fears and what you would do if these occur. If you are indecisive about a job change or whether the new job will be paying you less, you should analyze how the reduced income will affect your life and how you can deal with it.
  2. Tune into your emotions: Maximum people who suffer from compulsive indecisiveness and struggle at making major decisions tend to over analyze situations a bit too much. In some cases, you cannot create an easy perception or a suitable side for a situation in spite of stressing over it from various angles. The situation will remain the same, no matter how much you think. Write down your options, think about them, rate them, and choose the top rated option.
  3. Practice on small things: For improving upon your indecisiveness, you should start practicing by taking small decisions every day. Aim at taking 10 major decisions everyday such as where to go for lunch, which route to take to work and more. Slowly, practice taking decisions quickly instead of pondering over a situation. Try to make instant decisions in various spheres of life.
  4. Learn to trust yourself: You need to list all your strengths. Write down whether you think if you are smart, creative or funny. Ask yourself whether you can infuse your strengths into your process of decision making. Try to test your strengths in all kinds of matters. Once you are sure of your strengths, you will be able to achieve your goals without hesitation.
  5. Pick one thing at a time: You should pick things and matters one at a time to focus on. If there are several things which bother you and add to your indecisiveness, try to handle them one by one. This way you will be able to give all your focus to one matter, and overcome your fears related to it. After that, move on to another fear.

It is important for you to let go and refrain yourself from analyzing whether a decision which you had taken is right or wrong. Instead, focus on activities which matter to you and do not ponder over old decisions.

Hi, I have this issue like whenever I think about my old friends whose contacts I have lost or if I am wearing a piece of jewelry and it does not get off I start panicking and feel anxiety. For example if I am not able to remember something I start feeling anxious. I have to divert my mind towards something else n forget to feel relaxed and normal. Is it a serious issue?

Dear mam I can imagine it must be quite distressing for you. Feeling anxious in day to day life over small issues can be a sign of anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder can be effectively treated with medications and psychological therapy focusing on how to cope with anxiety. You can try relaxation techniques like meditation and calm breathing. Please see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation to understand this better and for further management. Hope this helps Thanks.

Dear Arita, This kind of mood swings are normal. Only if you are constantly happy or sad for 2 weeks, you need treatment. Forgetting things easily is a god's gift, especially for negatives in life. Enjoy it.
