Health

I have seen so many cases when a person’s health goes downhill and they are completely ignorant towards it. Now this happens not because they are deliberately doing it but because they simply are already so preoccupied to actually pay attention to such things. The values nowadays have changed and health has gone down the priority list with money coming up towards the top. We are losing our health while chasing money but does this have to be a trade off? Well, the ones who have it all figured out and are leading balanced lives beg to differ and claim that in this regard, you can very much have it all.

There might be many of us, like me, who want to do something but often find themselves needing a push or just a helping hand from someone who can not only just motivate but also has some pragmatic knowledge and preferably some experience. The worst experiences that I have had to hear from some loved ones are when not paying attention to their health landed them in fatal situations. One of my uncles ignored pain in left side of his body for several days and ended up on a hospital bed because of his carelessness.

The other day when my son asked me about which is the best shampoo for oily hair according to me, my husband was surprised. He was surprised because he had never even thought of his hair type in the forty years that he has lived so far and here was his boy asking this wonderful question. I am not surprised at all with his behavior. The times have changed now and the males are equally conscious of how they look and how to take care of them as are the women in their lives. Some might call it a metrosexual lifestyle, but I think there is something in between the metrosexual and the rugged when it comes to men.

My son is not all about grooming himself physically all the time but he does pay a tad bit more attention to his outward look than his dad. He is more aware and makes conscious choices on a small scale that make a lot of difference to how he presents himself to his peer group and to the society in general. This has become a norm nowadays and I personally am all for it. A healthy and positive attitude fueled by looking great at all times is much needed.

During pregnancy, the female body goes through a major hormonal change and with sensitive women, morning sickness if often the first indication of this change. This is hardly a cause to get alarmed, still many women hate it as they are not informed about it and suddenly find themselves struggling with uncontrollable nausea, headaches or sleepiness due to no apparent reason. There is no one answer to the question when does morning sickness start; from as early as in the second week of pregnancy to as late as sixth or eighth week. The answer really depends on how sensitive a woman’s body is. But rest assured, sooner or later this is a part of being pregnant that you will have to go through.
