Importance Of Blood Donation Blood donation aims as a voluntary practice that helps those in need of blood transfusion due to an illness or accident. Massive loss of blood can cause an unfortunate death if the requirement isn’t fulfilled immediately. While saving a life is the most highlighted part of donating blood, what makes it essential is the advantages it has on donor’s health. On average, a person can donate up to 4 – 5 litres of blood, after every third month for men and every four months for women.

Health is an essential factor because it is risky to donate blood. Especially if you have an infection or have a chronic ailment such as diabetes if you have recently got a tattoo you can’t donate blood for at least a year. In case of dental procedures, your eligibility for donating blood will depend on how long the process was and how long has it been since you underwent it. If you visited the dentist for a minor procedure, you should wait 24 hours before donating. It is not good idea to donate blood while breastfeeding. Have regular blood pressure and temperature before blood donation. Mandatory Tests & Medical Evaluation Before donating blood, you must undergo a physical examination, to check for any other signs of illnesses or conditions. All donated blood will be screened for blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis, syphilis and HIV. Vital signs–The temperature, blood pressure and pulse of a donor are checked before donating blood. Individuals with high BP, fever, high or low heart rate and who have an irregular heartbeat are temporarily not permitted to donate blood. Blood test – A small blood sample is taken from a finger stick and tested, to check for the number of red cells or the haemoglobin level in the blood. This is done to ensure that the donor is not anaemic, or most likely to become anaemic after they donate. Individuals with low haemoglobin are temporarily not permitted to donate. Many of us think that donating blood is harmful for health, but it has many advantages. Apart from just being noble for the society, blood donation justifies the saying “charity begins at home.” You’re only doing good to yourself by donating blood. So, don’t hesitate to donate blood.

A Breath Of Relaxation With Guided Meditation
The human mind absorbs and stores both the good and bad energy of its surroundings. Therefore, considering all the stressors that exist within the environment we live in, it’s quite natural that our mind and body show signs of anxiety and stress. To cope with stress levels, every individual has his/her unique choice of intervention. However, among all of the stress-relieving activities, meditation has gained significant momentum in the past few decades. And one of the many types of meditation routines that can help alleviate stress, anxiety and improve focus is a guided meditation, which has gained a lot of attention and appreciation due to its efficiency and consistency. So let’s understand how we can integrate this type of meditation in our lifestyles. What Is Guided Meditation? Guided meditation is a form of meditation where participants meditate in response to the guidance and instructions provided by an expert, teacher or practitioner. The format of communication between the instructor and the student could be either in person or via music, video or written text. The instructive nature of this format of meditation makes it easier for the individual to be much more structured and ordered in their practice. Nowadays, there are many guided meditation videos available online, which can help you meditate with ease. How We Can Incorporate It In Our Lifestyle Meditation is an activity that can be performed anywhere and anytime without prior preparation. The only thing to keep in mind is to channel all your focus on the task of meditation. Guided meditation, as the name suggests, helps an individual meditate without the burden of thinking about how and what to do if he/she is unfamiliar with the task. Meditation could also mean that a person is sitting in silence and reflecting upon life. The trouble with such types of meditative practices is that there is no framework to it. On the contrary, guided meditative practices have a finite set of instructions, which makes the process easier. If you are looking for long-term benefits, meditative practices only during episodes of stress may not be quite as effective. Try to include 10-15 minutes of guided meditation routine either in the night or morning, depending on your schedule, every day, without fail to reap its full benefits. Once you are comfortable with 15-minute intervals, you can increase the duration and go up to one hour, if time permits. However, most individuals will be able to stay focused and relaxed up to 30 minutes, if practised daily. Benefits Of Guided Meditation • As opposed to other meditative practices, guided meditation saves you the trouble of planning the routine, as it is pre-recorded or designed. You can either drop by a class and follow the instructions or plug in your earphones and follow the guidelines. • It reduces stress hormones in the body and promotes a sense of well-being. • 15-30 minute episodes of meditation practised daily have shown to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of hypertension. • It leads to slower brain wave activities, which helps in reducing the stress all the while triggering human growth hormones (HGH). • It also helps in reducing inflammation by neutralising acidosis, thus minimising pain as well. With technology at our fingertips, meditation has become an easily accessible practice. Moreover, many apps are now available on your smartphone that can give you instructions about meditation and how to start meditating, if you are new to it. Give these meditative practices a try to live a stress-free life!
The human mind absorbs and stores both the good and bad energy of its surroundings. Therefore, considering all the stressors…
Embrace Work-life Harmony
Stress, anxiety and pressure have become the highlight of our everyday conversation these days. While these words were not frequently used just two decades ago, in today’s time, they have become the causes of so many physical ailments. Stress has been termed as “World Wide Epidemic” by the World Health Organization. What Is Harmonious Work-Life? Work-life harmony is all about integrating all the aspects – work, family, health, friendship - together and like musical notes, making a melody by joining all the elements at the right time so that a melodious song is produced! The idea is to achieve harmony with a focus on one thing at a time. Ways To Achieve Work-Life Harmony Become Self Aware We all know knowledge is power, and learning about self is like having unlimited power. Being self-aware is the key to bringing harmony in life. Some specific actions or reactions may drain or increase our energy. Identifying these can help in avoiding irrelevant results and replacing them with a response instead. Be Mindful and Prioritise The four aspects of our life – Work, Family, Self/ Health and Friends are all important, but keeping all the elements happy all the time is too much to ask for from yourself. Prioritising helps in knowing which aspect needs attention more according to the circumstances. It can help to bring both personal and professional life to a balanced position, and life becomes much more comfortable at both ends. Communicate Effectively Communication plays a paramount role when creating harmony between work and personal life. While there will be times where failure may strike in, communication is the best tool to consider to hold oneself strong. Transparent communication with loved ones, colleagues, bosses or friends can facilitate in being on track. It’s important to interact and be clear with the situations that come across. If things are not going right, there’s always a better choice which is to communicate with the people involved in that situation. Develop Core Habits Core habits are essentially a practice that we start following as it gives us overall life satisfaction; these habits may form intentionally or even unintentionally. Core habits create a domino effect bringing a positive change in all the aspects of our life, thus making it easier to achieve fulfilment in our lives. For instance, core habits can be working out after a stressful day at work or starting the day with meditation, which helps in increasing the level of satisfaction. What are your Core Habits? Write down three habits that will make you feel happier, regardless of how difficult and stressful your day has been. Try this exercise, and you can see yourself analyse so much about a situation you may be in, and help you find your solutions, because, problems come to you only when you have an answer. Attaining work-life harmony is not an easy task, but it’s also not impossible to do. Although it requires one to keep reinventing and learning what works and what doesn’t, the takeaway is extremely beneficial as it leads to less stress, less guilt and more peace of mind.

5 Biggest Fitness & Workout Trends Of 2020
5 Biggest Fitness & Workout Trends Of 2020 Leandi van Zyl, CSCS Lead – Sport Science (Strength & Conditioning) Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital Some fitness trends have more or less been around for a while with some innovation but the trends this year are fairly new. From workouts powered by technology to online fitness classes, the fitness trends this year are motivating and exciting at the same time! Here are 5 fitness trends for 2020. 1. Functional Training: Before the lockdown, many gyms had developed ways to train people to lift heavier weights, do more repetitions and burn lots of calories. However, recently there has been a shift towards doing the right exercises that improve everyday movement. Functional training helps strengthen you in specific areas that are weak and helps you move better and more efficiently. Functional training is also easier to do at home. The risk for injury is also lower in comparison to programmes that need heavy equipment. 2. At Home HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) Workouts: A lot of people have been confined to their homes during recent months, and this has impacted what training looks like. Household items like chairs, water bottles, towels or backpacks have helped to serve as gym equipment for workouts at home. This will continue for the foreseeable future until it is safe for gyms to reopen. A good way to increase the intensity of UR home workouts is by doing high intensity interval training. This incorporates using time as a measurement of intensity. The exercise time in these workouts can range anywhere from 20 seconds to one minute with short rest intervals in-between exercises. These workouts are very effective if you have limited time to do a training session. 3. Yoga HIIT: Yoga has always been popular as an effective way of distressing while improving flexibility. Yoga High Intensity Interval Training uses dynamic yoga stretches in quick bursts to burn more calories while improving muscle length. These classes are done online and do not need any equipment, which makes it easy to do at home. 4. Virtual Cycling & Running: Virtual cycling and running has made it easy for endurance enthusiasts to train in the comfort of their home. It is as easy as hopping onto UR training cycle or treadmill and joining other friends and athletes in a virtual races or exercise sessions. There are many different tournaments and training sessions which can take UR endurance to the next level. The best thing about online racing is that you can compete against top athletes. 5. Technology-Led Training: Whether it is smart watches, fitness applications, GPS devices or heartrate monitors, technology is changing how we train! Technology is ever evolving and so is wearable technology and training programmes. Using the latest technology keeps you motivated and on track, to reach UR fitness goals. Smart watches help you see how much work you have put into UR training session. By looking at your heart rate and the amount of calories burned it is easy to see if you have to push more or less. There are multiple fitness applications that help people stay active during the lockdown. These applications show you what exercises to do and some can help monitor UR training sessions as well. However, these applications do not allow for individualized programmes and can increase the chances of sustaining an injury. What’s great about technology is that you are able to have online training sessions with qualified trainers in the comfort of UR home. This will make UR session more customized and a trainer can make sure you are doing all the exercises with the right techniques. During the lockdown staying active can be difficult but adding functional training, high intensity interval training, Yoga HIIT or virtual cycling or running to UR workout programme can keep you motivated and add some excitement to your routine. Using technology to monitor all the training you are doing is an effective way to know if you are improving. The best thing about technology is that you can take part in any training session without even stepping outside UR home!

Top 5 Techniques To Help Improve UR Body Posture
An important aspect of ensuring our long-term health is good posture. Ensuring that you are holding UR body correctly while moving or stationary can help to alleviate pain, injuries and certain health issues as well. During our everyday movement we get used to poor postural positions. These can cause pain or discomfort when not addressed. So if you are struggling with pain due to bad posture these five techniques will help release tight muscles and strengthen UR weak muscles. Here are a few easy stretches and exercises that can help improve overall body posture. Top 5 Techniques To Help Improve UR Body Posture Leandi van Zyl, CSCS Head – Sport Science (Strength & Conditioning) Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital An important aspect of ensuring our long-term health is good posture. Ensuring that you are holding UR body correctly while moving or stationary can help to alleviate pain, injuries and certain health issues as well. During our everyday movement we get used to poor postural positions. These can cause pain or discomfort when not addressed. So if you are struggling with pain due to bad posture these five techniques will help release tight muscles and strengthen UR weak muscles. Here are a few easy stretches and exercises that can help improve overall body posture. 1. Stretching and releasing of the chest muscle While moving around and working in your day-to-day life, the tendency is to slouch your upper back. This causes the chest muscles to become overly tight and which translates the shoulders forward. Releasing or stretching the chest muscles is very important and can help relieve tension in the upper back and neck. This is also an important stretch for fitness enthusiasts who tend to prefer push-ups and bench press to pulling exercises. As seen in the picture there are three different positions by which you can stretch your chest. Just raise your hands a bit higher each time. Each stretch should be held for at least 30 seconds and can be repeated 2 to 3 times. 2. Scapular strengthening exercise The forward bending posture of the upper body can also cause dysfunction in the upper back. Because of the tightness in the chest, the upper back muscles can get lengthened and weak. Here is an effective upper back exercise that can help correct this. Lying down on your stomach, make a ‘W’ with your arms. From this position straighten your arms. When returning to the W position, try squeezing both UR shoulder blades together. Do not arch UR lower back. You can do 10-15 repetitions and 2-3 sets. 3. Thoracic mobility Mobility is when joints and muscles can move freely without any restrictions. The movement of the Thoracic Spine (rib and chest area) that gets restricted from bad posture is extension and rotation. Extension is the ability to straighten the upper back and rotation is rotating your upper body without movement from your lumbar spine. The following mobility drill can help make the thoracic spine move better. The important aspect here is to eliminate lumbar spine movement. Keeping the knees together keeps the movement from the thoracic spine. During this mobility drill the goal is to open the chest up as much as you can. This can be done 10-15 times for 2-3 repetitions. To progress, you can add a light weight in the hand that is on top. 4. Upper Back stretch Poor posture, an injury or muscle overuse can usually be the cause of upper back pain. Though upper back pain is less common than lower back pain or neck pain, there are many causes for it. One of the causes may be deconditioning which means, you may not be using your muscles correctly. This could easily happen while sitting at UR desk for long hours in the wrong posture. Certain exercises can help strengthen your back and also help improve UR posture. Try this upper back stretch to help correct your posture and also ease pain. Keeping UR elbows bent, try to push down your upper body as far as possible. A stretch should come over UR upper body and triceps muscles. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat 2 to 3 times. 5. Pelvic Mobility The ideal position of our pelvic bone should be neutral. If we sit for long periods of time on the wrong chair, we tend to round our lower back or posterior tilt our pelvis which might cause pain in the lower back. The structures around the pelvis can get tight because of poor posture. This is why the first step to better pelvis posture is pelvic tilts. Once you are able to maintain a neutral pelvic you can start strengthening your core to be able to sustain the posture in a different position. A neutral pelvis is when the lumbar spine is slightly arched but not too much and the pelvis pushing forward or back. Our lumbar spine is made to be stable. This means that a structure is able to maintain a specific position despite forces being placed on it. In order to train lumbar stability we need to do a variety of core exercises. Pelvic Tilts The main idea is to move only your pelvic bone. Try keeping your hands on your hips to help with navigating your pelvis. The first movement would be to arch your lower back (pushing your buttocks out) and the second would be rounding your lower back (bringing your buttocks in). These exercises can be done 10 times for 2 to 3 sets. Bad posture can become a habit and cause some muscles to tighten up and others to lengthen and weaken. Releasing the chest muscles and upper trapezius muscles, strengthening your shoulder blade muscles, working on your thoracic mobility and neutral pelvis can help improve UR posture and reduce pain.

5 Ways Coconut Oil Improves UR Skin & Hair
We all know that coconut oil is immensely beneficial for our skin and hair. However, what we didn’t know is that there are a number of explanations justifying this claim. Right from moisturizing dry and flaky skin to treating frizzy hair, coconut oil has a number of benefits. The natural element of the oil has a wide array of therapeutic and beauty-enhancing properties. Moreover, coconut oil is also used as a component in various hair care and skin care products. It is the most common and cost-effective products to nourish and treat your skin and hair. Here are a few benefits of coconut oil you can enjoy at home. Hair Conditioner Coconut has a fatty acid structure, which penetrates into the hair roots. So, if you feel your hair is dry or is prone to break, manage it with coconut oil as an overnight treatment. For this, you need to take virgin coconut oil and apply it on your hair, starting from the roots to the ends. Tie your hair in a ponytail. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. It is the most effective way to deal with split ends as well. Reduces hair loss and breakage When you feel your hair is puffy, rub a small amount of coconut oil on your fingers and run it through your hair to keep fizziness at bay. In addition, if you are in a pool or at the beach, it is likely that your hair will become little tangled. So at times like these, it’s best to leave coconut oil in your hair, as it saves your hair from the scorching sun, chlorine and saltwater. It also keeps your hair conditioned. Skin Moisturiser During the winter season, our lips get dry, so to moisten your dry lips, apply coconut and then rinse it off. Again, apply a little coconut oil to your lips to keep it moist and soft for a longer period. Overall Skin Treatment Coconut oil is enriched with natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, which makes it the perfect ingredient to prevent infections and fungus. Therefore, apply coconut oil to keep your skin moisturized. To keep your feet smooth and fungus-free, use the oil every day. Exfoliator Coconut oil is also good for pedicures. Take half a jar of coconut oil and add two tablespoons of honey and one tablespoon of sugar. Mix all the three ingredients until the sugar is immersed completely in the oil. Take a spoonful of the scrub and rub it on your legs and feet to exfoliate your skin. Doing so takes away the dead skin and smoothen your cracked heels and rough spots.

Excess Time On Your Hands Are you under stress because you have less time to access the work, or excess work needs to be done at the earliest? Besides the push from your reporting manager, are there other factors causing stress? Try to identify them and cut them down one by one. Remember, you are giving your best to bring positive results but be open to constructive criticism later. Convincing yourself to unload the work pressure is the first step to feel motivated.

Also, don’t forget that making peace with the people around is essential to help you stay motivated while being honest with your work. Present Vs. Living In The Future When was the last time you enjoyed working overtime? Compare and assess the efforts that you put in during those days with the present work. Give yourself two realistic self-deadlines and work with proper dedication, keeping all distractions away. This will help you feel comfortable while you give your hundred per cent, regardless of the pressure. Working in a high-stress environment is different from working with highly stressed individuals.

There’s also no denying that sometimes, motivation is hard to get hold of. Staring at our screens and simply not being able to get through the work, no matter how hard we try, is an instance we can all relate to.

Fortunately, there are certain tricks and tips to help you get motivated in no time at all! Stay Motivated And Upbeat About Your Work Stop thinking of the work as hard and consider it as something that is propelling you towards what you want to be. Envision the task is already completed and also think about how good that would make you feel! Chasing a big goal can be scary at times, as you may not know where to begin! So it’s best to break your goals down into small bite-size goals so that each time you make some progress, you will feel a sense of accomplishment and will be motivated to continue. When you need to complete a task, you will probably not think about doing anything else or for that matter, pick up a book and read! But reading can help you find the motivation you are lacking! Additionally, it’s a profoundly inspiring habit to acquire. Moreover, when you have a deadline to reach, ignore all irrelevant activities and forge ahead to complete your unfinished work by getting rid of anything that wastes your time and always sticks to the activities that apply to a larger goal. Some of the other natural ways to find motivation are to allow yourself some downtime and once refreshed, dive into your task again. Also, remember to celebrate your small wins and reward yourself for staying motivated and on top of things!
If you feel you are overloaded with work and have heaps of tasks to complete, keep in mind that there…
Everything You Need To Know About Brain Tumours
What is a brain tumour? A tumour, in general, is a collection of abnormal cells in your any part of the body. Brain tumours are located inside the skull. The skull encloses the brain, which is very rigid! Any abnormal growth inside this restricted space can cause problems. Brain tumours can be cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign). When benign or malignant tumours grow, they increase the pressure inside your skull. This additional pressure can cause brain damage and can be life-threatening. Brain tumours are categorized as primary or secondary. A primary brain tumour originates in your brain. Many primary brain tumours are benign. Metastatic brain tumour, also known as a secondary brain tumour occurs when the cancer cells spread to the brain from a different organ of the body. Types of brain tumours Primary brain tumours originate in your brain. They can develop from your: • brain cells • membranes surrounding your brain, which is called meninges • nerve cells • glands Primary tumours can either be benign or cancerous. Gliomas and meningiomas are common types of brain tumours in adults. Gliomas Gliomas are tumours that develop from glial cells. These cells normally: • provide nutrition to your central nervous system • supports the structure of the central nervous system • break down dead neurons • clean cellular waste Gliomas tumours can develop from different types of glial cells. Other primary brain tumours Other primary brain tumours include: • Pituitary tumours, which are usually benign • Pineal gland tumours, which can be benign or malignant • Ependymomas are generally benign • Craniopharyngiomas occur mostly in children and could be benign, but these can change clinical symptoms like in vision or premature puberty • Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphomas that are malignant • Primary germ cell tumours of the brain can be benign or malignant • Meningiomas originate in the meninges • Schwannomas arise in cells that produce the protective cover of your nerves (myelin sheath) called Schwann cells Risk factors for brain tumours Family history About 5 to 10 per cent of all cancers are genetically inherited, or hereditary. It’s rare for a brain tumour to be inherited genetically. Seek a specialist doctor if several people in your family have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Your doctor might recommend a genetic counsellor in that case. Age With age, the risk toward most types of brain tumours increases as well. Race Brain tumours, in general, are the most common in Caucasians. However, African-Americans are also more likely to find meningiomas. Chemical exposure Being exposed to certain chemicals, even those that you find at your work environment can increase the risk for brain cancer. Exposure to radiation People exposed to ionizing radiation have an increased risk of brain tumours. Ionizing radiation can occur through high-radiation cancer therapies. Radiation from nuclear fallout has similar effects. In the past, the nuclear power plant incidents in Fukushima and Chernobyl gives testament to how people can be exposed to ionizing radiation. What are the symptoms of a brain tumour? Symptoms of brain tumours depend on the location and size of the tumour. Some tumours cause direct damage by invading brain tissue, and some tumours cause pressure on the surrounding brain. You’ll have noticeable symptoms when a growing tumour creates pressure on the brain tissue. Headache is the tell-tale sign of a brain tumour. You may experience headaches that: • occur while you’re sleeping • are worse in the morning after waking up • are worse while coughing, sneezing, or exercising You may also experience: • Blurred vision or double vision • vomiting • Confusion • Weakness in a part of the face or limb • Seizures (especially in adults) • A change in mental functioning Symptoms of pituitary tumours The following symptoms can occur with pituitary tumours: • Nipple discharge, or galactorrhea • Development of breast tissue in men • Lack of menstruation in women • Enlargement of the hands and feet • increased amounts of body hair, or hirsutism • Sensitivity to heat or cold • Low blood pressure • Blurry vision or tunnel vision • Obesity How are brain tumours diagnosed? The diagnosis starts with a physical exam and a look at your medical history. They conclude the following, • muscle strength • memory • coordination • logical ability The doctor may order more tests after they finish the physical exam. These could include: CT scan of the head MRI of the head Angiography Skull X-rays Biopsy Treatment of brain tumours The treatment of a brain tumour depends on: • the type of tumour • the size of the tumour • the location of the tumour • your general health The most common treatment for malignant brain tumours is surgery. The primary goal is to remove as many cancer cells as possible without causing damage or complications to the healthy parts of the brain. Sometimes, the location of some tumours allows for easy and safe removal. Other tumours may be located in an area that limits how much of the tumour can be removed. It is seen that even the partial removal of brain cancer cells can be beneficial. The risks associated with brain surgery include infection and bleeding. Clinically dangerous benign tumours are also surgically removed. Metastatic brain tumours are treated according to the cancer present in the body. If surgery is suggested, it is most likely to be combined with other treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation therapy. After neurosurgery, physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy help you to recover.
