Health and Fitness – Drink Water but How Much?

Drink Water but How Much?

Water constitutes a major part (~60%)of our bodies. It means that we should drink sufficient water to keep our metabolism running smoothly. Water is essential because:

๐ŸŒฑ Water flushes out waste products from our body
๐ŸŒฑ Water carries nutrients across the body.
๐ŸŒฑ It keeps us hydrated and maintains the right temperature of the body.

One thing I’ve noticed that some people drink a lot of water while others are satisfied with a much lesser amount. Is there any parameter to measure the amount of water we should drink? Are we doing harm to our body by drinking less/more water? And, most importantly, is this harm temporary or permanent?
I’m sure you are also searching for the right answer. This article is about our water intake.

Health experts recommend at least 8 glasses (~250 ml each) of water to be consumed every day. The amount is subject to vary according to age, weight, type of work one does and health condition. So it’s important to know how much water our body needs.

Water Intake according to age:

๐ŸŒฑ Men require more water than women. An average man should drink 3 litres of water daily and an average woman should drink 2.2 litres.
๐ŸŒฑ Children in the age group 9-13 need 2.5 litres of water every day.
๐ŸŒฑ The requirement of infants is as low as 1.3 litres.

๐ŸŒฑ Water intake varies from person to person though they might be classified in any one of the above categories.

Now, what affects the thirst of the people of the same age and gender? Let’s find out!:)

๐ŸŒฑ Health:

Health condition of an individual decides the amount of water he should drink. A person suffering from fever, diarrhea, vomiting needs more water or ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution) to replenish water in the body.
A woman who breast-feeds her child needs more water than an average woman.

๐ŸŒฑ Occupation:

A laborer who works in the sun needs more water than the person who works on a computer in an air-conditioned room.

๐ŸŒฑ Season/Environment:

We need more water in the summer/hot environment because a lot of body water is lost due to sweating.

Are other fluids contributing to our water need?

Our body gets fluids not only from water but also from tea/coffee/milk and foods rich in water. Fluid balance of the body can be maintained by having fluid-rich foods. It’s a myth that caffeinated drinks don’t contribute to the hydration.

Conclusion:

We see that water intake is different for different people. You should not worry if you’re drinking more or less than your friend:)

๐ŸŒฑ There need not be any hard and fast rule about how much water should be taken. Drink water when you’re thirsty. Follow your thirst.

๐ŸŒฑ Lack of water in the body can cause constipation, low energy level and even brain dysfunction.

๐ŸŒฑ Look for the following signs of dehydration and replenish your body with sufficient water.

– Constipation
– Less peeing
– Dry Lips
– Sticky mouth
– Dizziness
– Rough skin

๐ŸŒฑ Water is life. Drink sufficient but do not waste it:)

Health and Fitness – What is in Human body?

What is in Human body?

A human body is like a machine where each organ plays its part. The organs work in sync to enable our body to do everyday functions properly. All of us study the basic structure and functions of various parts of the human body in schools. Let’s have a quick recap:)

๐ŸŒผ Involving heart, veins, arteries, blood; the CIRCULATORY SYSTEM moves blood, oxygen, carbon dioxide and hormones in our body. An important part of human life network.

๐ŸŒผ Mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, anus, liver and pancreas are the important organs that form our DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. It helps us to eat food, digest it and remove the waste material from our body. Also an important part of our system.

๐ŸŒผ Brain and spinal cord form NERVOUS SYSTEM that controls the actions of our organs by sending signals to all the parts of the body. No doubt about its capabilities.

๐ŸŒผ Trachea diaphragm and lungs perform important respiratory functions and hence control the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM. An essential system for our living.

๐ŸŒผ Then we have MUSCULAR SYSTEM, REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM, INTEGUMENTARY SYSTEM (Skin), URINARY SYSTEM, SKELETAL SYSTEM, LYMPHATIC SYSTEM and many more.

๐ŸŒผ The more man understands the structure and working of human body, the more efficient he becomes in dealing with the diseases and disorders.

๐ŸŒผ We all have read that our body consists of about 60% of water. Yes, two-thirds of our body is water and we can’t imagine living without this fluid. No wonder they ask us to drink plenty of water to stay healthy.

I hope you enjoyed going through your body’s contents. I want to share a big revelation with you. Till 2014, it was assumed that there are 10 times as many microorganisms present in the human body as there are human cells. Recent studies show that๐Ÿ‘‰

๐Ÿž 43% of our body is made up of cells, the rest is occupied by microscopic organisms.
๐Ÿž The microscopic organisms include bacteria, viruses and fungi. The concentration of these organisms is more where our body lacks oxygen, like intestines.
๐Ÿž A recent study shows that we are more microbe than human denying the previous theory that microbes outnumber cells in the ratio 10:1.
๐Ÿž There are good as well as bad microorganisms.
๐Ÿž We have tried to overpower these microorganisms but in the process, also harmed the good ones. Many diseases like Tuberculosis and Smallpox have been conquered but there is an increase in the diseases where the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. Cases of allergy have also increased in the last few decades. Worrisome!
๐Ÿž Most of the human(fed) microbes reside in oxygen-deprived bowels, questioning the cause of diseases like obesity.
๐Ÿž It looks impossible that we carry such a large quantity of microbes without having any effect on our body.

Ha! We’re living in a world where each day begins with new theories and new researches. What people found healthy in the nineteenth-century is unhealthy today because it is proved through a series of experiments. The ‘healthy food’ we are eating today may get banned in future.

The debate on healthy food goes on and we continue to find a safer way to stay fit and strong.

Health and Fitness

After an amazing response to my #AtoZ series on ‘Glimpse of India‘, I’m writing on ‘Health and Fitness’. Summer months can’t be utilized in a better way.
Why on health? Frankly, my hands were itching (!) to write because the AtoZ series gave me the much-needed motivation. I wanted to write on something that interests everybody. Health is the theme, we all want to be aware of. Whether it’s about finding the right food or exercise, we want a healthy body to look good and stay away from diseases. Accept or reject the idea but the truth is that HEALTH IS THE ULTIMATE WEALTH. I hope to do justice to the theme by covering all the important aspects of Health and Fitness. Join me and dive to find simple solutions to complicated health issues.

Everything leaves you but good health makes you strong enough to go farther in life. I hope my effort to spell health in simple language will benefit all of you out there. The first post on Health and Fitness will be released soon. Till then, stay healthy, stay happy:)

My posts will be shared on social media with the hashtags #StayHealthyWithAditi #AditiWrites.

What I learnt from Blogchatter Creative Writing E-course

What I learnt from Blogchatter Creative Writing E-course

As many of you already know, the ever-learning, ever-evolving bloggers community, Blogchatter is conducting the ‘Creative Writing E-course’ from March to June 2019.

๐ŸThe first phase of the course included ‘Understanding the nuances of creative writing’ where we attended live sessions and chats with renowned writers on Blogchatter’s social media platforms.
I was a part of some chats and watched the recorded versions of those I missed. I’m writing about what I learnt in the first phase of the e-course.

๐Ÿ It was an opportunity for the blogger community to interact with the famous Indian author and journalist, Aditya Sinha. He gave us tips on how to write gripping non-fiction.

What I learnt from Aditya Sinha

1) While writing in Non-fiction genre, make your content interesting to capture your reader’s attention for long.

2) If you want to blend facts with creative liberties, go for ‘Faction’ means using real-life characters in your creative writing.

3) Internet is a vast source from where one can get information to write Non-fiction.

4) Whichever genre you are writing, be confident to pass the same enthusiasm to your readers.

5) Reading is your only reliable source if you are writing Non-fiction. Don’t write on the basis of what you hear.

6) To make Non-fiction an interesting read, you can plan it in non-chronological order.

7) Who reads Non-fiction?
People who want to learn and hunt for revelations pick up the Non-fiction first. Write for them. Sometimes truth gets hidden in the misty lies, your job is to unveil the reality.

๐ŸDipankar Mukherjee was another author who gave us some serious Creative Writing goals. Please find below some quick notes on what I learnt from the famous fiction writer.

1) Entertainment-factor is very important for creative writing though it varies from person to person. Some like emotional stories whereas others may find commercial stories entertaining.

2) Gain knowledge about the topic you are writing on by reading.

3) Select your theme cautiously. You should be clear on who will read your stuff.

4) Think about the ideas that will make your writing stand out.

5) Write on the theme, you have some real-life experience in. Don’t go for the theme just because it is popular.

6) Give a personal touch to your writings. It will distinguish you from the other writers and make your identity unique in the market.

๐Ÿ Importance Of Keeping A Writing Schedule
The article by Andaleeb Wajid suggests keeping a schedule for writing if you want yourself to be a productive and focused writer. I think this is one of the most important tips I have to practise. By allotting 3-4 hours a day to my writing, I can think of reaching my aim.

๐Ÿ Second phase of the ‘Creative Writing e-course’ is DOCUMENTING THE UNDERSTANDING, what I’m doing here.

๐Ÿ Phase three will begin in June when Blogchatter will give writing based prompts for evaluation.

๐ŸWhen I registered for the Creative Writing e-course by Blogchatter, I hoped to learn nuances of good blog writing. I attended some chats and live interactions with renowned authors and learnt how they plan their writings. I must say it has been a fulfilling experience.

๐ŸThe best thing that I learnt during the e-course is yet to be shared:)
From the live interactions with the published authors, I got to know my genre. I found that most of my posts are non-fiction. It attracts me, it prompts me to pick up the pen and write. Non-fiction with creativity makes it interesting and attracts readers; this is another important lesson learnt from the e-course. I’m grateful to the team Blogchatter for guiding me in the right direction:)

Reflections- April AtoZ Series

Reflections- Glimpse of India

April has been quite an eventful month for me. Blogchatter AtoZ series kept me in read-write mode and I got an opportunity to challenge myself. I consider myself a lazy blogger and completing 26 posts in the month of April is a HUGE success for me. Now that the challenge is over, I’m here to reflect what I gained (and what lost!?).

Before the beginning of the AtoZ challenge, I was confused about the theme of the series. It was my first AtoZ challenge and I was determined to prove myself. A few days before AtoZ Challenge was to begin, I had hosted the blog train for travel India with more than 70 posts shared on social media with hashtag #XploreBharat. I became more interested in knowing various cultures and landforms of India. AtoZ challenge gave me an opportunity to discover my own country through 26 blog posts:)

Next challenge before me was to write one post a day (Told you I don’t get started easily!!;). Luckily, the enthusiasm of my fellow bloggers rubbed off on me. It gave an (unexpected๐Ÿ˜‚) boost to my writing power and yes, I completed the series on time!!

Wow! I’m an A-to-Z-Challenge SURVIVOR:)

My experience with AtoZ Challenge

๐Ÿ‚ Before the AtoZ challenge, my blog was updated sparingly because I was hesitant to use the words! Oh, literally! The challenge gave me confidence to start writing whenever I feel like, without any false assumptions.

๐Ÿ‚ I got to read the blogs of many wonderful bloggers whose work encouraged me to spend a part of myself in blogging.

๐Ÿ‚ After completion of AtoZ series, I’m counted as one of those reliable bloggers;)
What else do I need?

๐Ÿ‚ My Alexa rank shows a huge improvement and I’m happy with the progress. Pray, the power of Alexa be with me๐Ÿ’ช. Always.

๐Ÿ‚ I hope to continue updating my blog more often because participating in the AtoZ challenge showed me the right way to blog.

๐Ÿ‚ Last but not least, I would like to thank Blogchatter for mentoring me in wading through the blogging challenge:)

๐Ÿ‚ You can find all my ‘Glimpse of India’ posts ๐Ÿ‘‰HERE. Please read and leave a comment to encourage:)
