Just How Much Sleep Should You Be Getting?

Article by: Donald Saunders

Just how much sleep you need each day will depend very much on your age and your state of health. But sleep is not simply about the time that you spend sleeping, but is also very much a question of the quality of that sleep. So, if you are getting the right amount of sleep and are still getting up each morning feeling tired and going through your day unable to concentrate fully, and perhaps being a little irritable, then there’s a very good chance that you’re not getting enough deep sleep and could well be suffering from insomnia.

When it comes to age, newborn babies clearly need the greatest amount of sleep and will normally sleep in cycles of about four hours waking when it’s time to be fed and changed...

It helps us maintain regular bowel movements – so is an excellent dietary addition to those who suffer from constipation or any resulting hemorrhoids.

Promotes normal cholesterol levels – A high fiber diet will aid those who are at risk from heart disease. That’s probably why you see characters in TV dramas, which have heart scares, being force fed high fiber breakfast cereals in place of their normal diet of eggs, sausage and bacon.

Maintains blood sugar levels – Which is good news for people with diabetes, although eating lots and lots of fiber won’t cure the diabetes it can help reduce episodes of very low or very high blood sugar levels.

Causes Of Heart Palpitations

Article by: Mark Rosenberg

I occasionally see patients complaining of a fluttering heart, a sense of fullness in the chest, a pounding heart or skipped heartbeats. These sensations, also called heart palpitations, occur when the electrical system in the heart malfunctions. This malfunction disrupts the natural rhythm of the heart (arrhythmia). Usually, irregular beats are harmless. As a matter of fact, most people at some time in their lives, have occasional irregular heartbeats and never know it. The heart goes right back into rhythm and you don’t feel a thing.

But some people do feel these irregularities; their daily activities may even be disrupted. And, palpitations could signal an underlying heart disease...

In other words, a woman’s sex drive is likely to be lower during the years following menopause than the years leading up to menopause.

Researchers have examined many factors that may affect a woman’s sex drive during menopause...

Article by: Holly Rigsby

When it comes to your ability to see results, there could be several factors at play. I am just going to through a few ideas out there and hopefully one or more will help you see a solution that you can take and use to make a difference.

When it comes to results. Consistency is key. It is more than just trying a new workout here or there and all about sticking to one plan that becomes progressively challenging. When you follow through with consistency you will be in a better position to measure your progress and make adjustments that help you move towards your goals. Doing more exercise each and every day is not going to get you to your results faster. This is a common misconception that many moms fall prey to.
