Hot dry air in your lungs. Chapped skin on your face and hands. Static-cling hair. Feeling thirsty all the time. Catching every cold that comes around.
Stimulants such as caffeine found in coffee, tea and cola drinks and chocolate make it harder for the body to relax. Try and avoid them a few hours before going to bed.
Do you cringe every time your hear someone cough or sneeze? Afraid you might catch the cold or the flu from the person sitting next to you? Then defend your health by adding probiotics to your daily regimen. The probiotics acidophilus and bifidus are the “friendly” bacteria that live in your gut and are your first line of defense against colds and flus. Rather than being antibiotics, which is what you take AFTER you have a cold, probiotics are what you take before you catch a cold. Probiotics keep you healthy rather than curing you after you are already sick. It sounds like that old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” doesn’t it?

There are simple methods to keep from punishing our bodies and gaining weight during the holidays.

Another exercise for your forearms is the wrist curl behind the back. Hold a barbell with your palms directing backward behind your back. Your instructor or training part will put the bar from the rack to your hands. As the heavy war will be forced downwards, your hands will also go down. By using your forearm muscles, you will have to lift the weight back again. Perform this exercise eight times and then rest for a while.
