What You Need To Know Before Going On A Trip

It is believed that reading paper (this is worth emphasizing) sources helps to cope with depression and improve communication skills. It is also worth noting that for a positive effect, you need to read texts that are pleasant to you, so highly social and political newspapers and magazines are most likely not suitable. But classic literature or a fresh issue of Marie Claire is quite.

Eat slowly

Nutritionists, as one say, that excess weight is often associated not so much with the fact that people eat a lot, but with the fact that they eat quickly, while chewing food poorly. Those who eat too fast have been shown to be prone to overeating. This happens due to the fact that the body does not have time to understand that it has been fed, and the signal of saturation comes too late.

Meditate in silence

Doctors have long said that meditation is useful not only for yogis and adherents of oriental practices, but even for the most ordinary office workers. A study from Harvard University proves that 30-minute daily meditation is guaranteed to reduce the likelihood of developing stress, increase emotional state and positively affect not only psychological, but also physical health of a person.

Remember the hardware

Iron plays an important role in maintaining the normal functioning of the body. Fatigue, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating are just some of the problems faced by a person with iron deficiency in the body. In addition, iron promotes a stable metabolism and carries oxygen from the lungs to the cells, so iron deficiency can also contribute to weight gain.

Turn off your phone

Yes, we know that the advice is not the newest and most original, but it is perhaps one of the main ones. Smartphones are not exactly dangerous, but extremely controversial. Regular, continuous use of them can lead to such consequences as increased eye pressure, muscle cramps, stress, as well as the development of pain in the neck and shoulders and migraines due to frequent tilting of the head down.

Walk 21 minutes a day

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has determined that a person between the ages of 18 and 34 needs at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week to stay healthy. If you cannot spend two and a half hours at a time on sports, then divide this time equally for each day of the week. It turns out 21 minutes a day. Agree that you can spend so much time walking on a wave.

Don’t sit at home

Or rather, spend more time outdoors. This advice will be especially relevant now with the onset of winter, when we keep walking to a minimum due to bad weather and unwillingness to face the harsh and slushy reality. As you know, a person needs vitamin D, and it can only be produced in the air. In addition, if the walks are surrounded by wild (or at least park) nature, you will be guaranteed bonuses such as improving various brain functions and, drum roll, stress relief.


You and modern medicine

Modern medicine, dialysis therapy and medicines are just one side of the fight against disease. Exercise independence and activity to better understand your condition and find out how you yourself can help yourself to continue to lead an active life.

1. Social life

Remember that your roles in life as wife or husband, parent, friend, professional are still important. Make a conscious effort to return to them and continue to fulfill your responsibilities.

2. Sports and hobbies

Continue doing your hobbies whenever possible. Sports activities also have a positive effect. Exercise contributes significantly to a normal life. Just check with your doctor before starting exercise.

3. Nutrition and fluid intake

With kidney failure, a balanced diet is very important. It can help you avoid complications and keep you healthy. Your doctor and dietitian at the dialysis center can help you determine which foods are good for you. There are many recipes for healthy and tasty dishes.

4. Weekends

On weekends, you need to be even more careful and careful when choosing food and with the amount of fluid consumed, since the interval between dialysis procedures is a day longer.

5. Smoking

It is no secret that smoking has a harmful effect on human health. And especially for a person with kidney disease, since smoking provokes additional stress on the work of the heart and blood vessels. If you haven’t quit smoking yet, now is the time to make up your mind. Medical specialists from your dialysis center will help you succeed.

6. Feelings of Despair and Support

Many patients with chronic diseases go through difficult life stages. Always remember: your family and your friends, as well as the specialists of the dialysis center, are always nearby and can provide you with the help and support you need. You can also join a patient community or self-help group.

7. Communication

Open communication with the specialists of the dialysis center is very important for your health. Your PCP and nurses are always looking after you, so feel free to ask questions. They have the knowledge and experience to share and support you.
