Whether it’s a friend, classmate, co-worker, or even a relative, there will always be people who we simply don’t like. Maybe it’s because of their guts, or maybe they’re just plain annoying. Even so, if there’s not much of an issue between you two and you just want to maintain a healthy environment, there are tons of ways to do so. Here are only some of them.

Just don’t show it

Of course, there are varying levels to this. There’s a difference between not liking someone and actually hating them with a passion. If you’re still at a level where you just think of the person as annoying, then don’t think too much about it and just don’t show the other person that you don’t like them. Chances are, this person doesn’t really know that you don’t like him too. This is simply the best and easiest way to avoid tension and conflict.

Stay calm and collected

On the other hand, if the tension gets really high and you’ve already shown signs of hostility towards each other, it will be best to remain calm during a confrontation. But then again, this is easier said than done, especially if you really hate this person. Staying calm, though, will still be ideal in heated scenarios. For one, you can deliver your feelings and thoughts better. If you speak too emotionally, you won’t convey the message as effectively. You can also prevent the conflict from becoming an all-out fight.

Keep in mind that you’re both different

When you start to dislike someone, try to remember that they act the way they do because you are both different people. You won’t always share the same interests. There are some things he/she likes that you don’t. When you remember this, it’ll be easier for you to avoid thinking of someone in a bad light. But then again, you can’t really like someone instantly because of that. So, just think the way you want to but keep it to yourself.

Don’t take the bait

For the most part, the people we hate are those who try to pick on us or bully us. Whether it’s at school or at work, there’s always going to be that one person who does that. If you encounter a person who keeps belittling you, control your emotions and don’t be aggressive. Showing your anger will only make them feel more powerful. What you can do instead is to ask probing questions like what their problem is with you in particular. This will turn the spotlight on them shows them if they want you to treat them with respect, they should earn it.

  • You might have grown up hearing that you should drink about 8 glasses of water a day. But how important is it really? In Singapore, the water is clean enough that you could drink tap water without worry. That means you can drink water freely all day. So should you do it? Here, then, are some of the important benefits of drinking enough water daily.

    1. The brain needs water

    Brain function is strongly affected by our hydration. This is simply because just like every organ in the body, our brain needs water to function well. Mild dehydration, for example, has actually been found to impair memory and brain performance. If we are dehydrated for a longer time, it can be severely detrimental to our thinking and reasoning.

    2. Our bodily fluids depend on it

    Digestion, circulation, distribution of nutrients, and all other bodily processes need water to function effectively. That is because all of these rely on our body fluids to do their work effectively. Also, it’s not just our internal organs that need water, even our skin and our eyes benefit from being hydrated. This is also why our brain tells us we are thirsty. To let us know that the body is running out of water.

    3. Improve physical performance

    Staying hydrated can clearly improve physical performance. Why do you think you get thirsty even if you do just jog for a while? When we lose too much water through sweat during physical activities, our muscle tissues get deprived of oxygen and end up losing energy. Hence, physical performance becomes limited. So, always remember to drink enough water before, during, and after exercise or any physical activity.

    4. Water cleanses the body

    In the present day, much of the food we consume is high in sodium. The recommended daily intake is only 1500mg-2300mg but on average, we ingest 3400 mg. This is mainly because of fast food and processed food like hotdogs and ham. When we consume too much sodium, our body won’t be able to flush everything out and they become toxins that are harmful to the body. In this case, water is important because it improves circulation and helps flush out all these excess toxins. Drinking enough helps cleanse the body thoroughly.

    5. It can help with weight loss

    Simply put, you should drink a lot of water before every meal to help reduce your food intake if you want to lose weight. Many people, when they hit the gym trying to lose weight, drink sports drinks instead of water. Because sports drinks are relatively high in sugar, it can limit your weight loss efforts in some ways. The logic behind water helping with weight loss is also simple and really obvious. As mentioned above, by drinking water, you won’t be hungry often so you’ll reduce your food intake.

  • What are Bunions?

    A bunion is known as a hallux valgus among doctors and is a type of deformity in the base joint of a big toe. Not only does it make your feet look uneven, it can also cause pain, swelling, and discomfort especially when you’re wearing the wrong shoes.

    Causes of Bunions
    Most doctors cannot pinpoint the cause of bunions in most patients with the condition, but they can locate where the deformity is. The big toe is angled towards the next toe, causing a bump to form on the side of the big toe’s base. As a result, the tissues and the skin surrounding the deformed joint, called the metatarsophalangeal joint or MTP, becomes thick. In some cases, a bursa or a sac filled with fluid forms on the joint. The joint deformity is called hallux valgus, causing the bones of the big toe to push the other toes due to its sideways angle. “Hallux” is a Latin word which means big toe, while “valgus” refers to the action of turning away from the body’s midline.

    Some doctors point to genes as a determining factor, while others are the result of joint problems like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. The condition can run in families especially if most of the members have feet with low arches, loose joints, have flat feet, or have loose tendons. The structure and shape of the feet, such as the roundness of the metatarsal head,can also increase the risk of getting bunions especially if you’re not wearing the right footwear.

    Bunions in most women, however, are the result of repeatedly squeezing their feet into narrow, pointed-toe footwear that sometimes even come with high heels. This habit can put pressure on some parts of the feet especially the joints in the toes, because the body’s weight is pushed forward.

    Bunions also tend to develop among people whose occupations require hours of standing and walking.

    Treatment of Bunions
    The symptoms of bunions include pain, difficulty walking, inflammation of the base of the toe, infection of the toe, widening of the foot, difficulty finding shoes that will fit and feel comfortable, arthritis on the big toe, and deformation of the second toe.

    Some people ignore bunions, but it’s important to get it treated because the MTP is supposed to help the feet distribute the weight of the body evenly. Ignoring the pain can lead to other more serious problems in the future, such as hammertoes, corns, foot impairment, ingrown nails, bursitis, and misshapen joints.

    The simplest way to get rid of the pain is to wear comfortable shoes that are flexible, wide, and have correct support for the feet. You can also ease the pain with occasional cold compresses or the use of bunion pads and shoe inserts.

    The doctor might also recommend that you take over-the-counter painkillers to ease the swelling. For people with other joint conditions or those who suffer from severe pain, prescription-strength drugs are recommended, while some cases require physiotherapy and surgery.

  • For most people nowadays, dealing with stress is a normal part of modern life. How we deal with it will make a lot of difference in our overall health and there’s no excuse not to, because there are many ways to de-stress after a tiring week. But what happens to those who cannot take the stress and don’t have time to unwind even on weekends?

    Acute and Chronic Stress
    Acute stress is sometimes helpful when you’re in threatening situations, because the sudden elevated bodily response might help people survive. Acute stress is just another name for adrenaline rush and it can temporarily improve the body’s immune system. Prolonged stress, however, is a different story altogether. A constantly active stress response damages the body because the body cannot reset its normal inflammatory chemicals and hormones.

    Stress Causes Chronic Pain
    When you’re chronically stressed, perhaps from overwork or family or financial problems, you’re more likely to suffer from musculoskeletal disorders because your muscles are always tense. Although injuries can also cause chronic pain, how the person’s body responds to the injury will also determine the healing process. Muscle tension is a natural response of the body to pain and injury, that is why those who maintain light to moderate physical activities during recovery heal better than those who are afraid to injure themselves again.

    Stress Causes Cardiovascular Problems
    Stress causes an increase in the heart contractions and heart rate due to the increase in the stress hormones. This is fine during fight-or-flight responses for emergencies, but prolonged stress can increase the likelihood of inflammation in the blood vessels and elevate the cholesterol levels, therefore increase the chances of cardiovascular problems.

    Stress is Bad for Menopause
    Not only will stress aggravate any existing medical problem, but it is especially dangerous for women during menopause. In pre-menopausal stages, the level of estrogen can still help the body respond to stress, but postmenopausal stage lowers the level of estrogen that is supposed to protect the heart from diseases. This is why a lot of women complain about “feeling old and sickly” at this stage of their life because of the changes in their body.

    Stress Affects Other Organs
    Although the most noticeable effect of stress can be seen in the cardiovascular system, other systems of the body will also be affected. The liver for example, tends to produce more glucose when you’re stressed, but if your body cannot process the excess sugar effectively, you can gain weight and even be at risk for diabetes. Stress also causes your brain to signal that you’re either hungry or full all the time. Stress therefore, causes changes in the eating habits, weight, and even bowel movements.

    Stress Drains You
    Prolonged stress can give you sleepless nights and various health problems that will only pile up and cause more stress. It’s an endless cycle that will eventually drain you mentally and emotionally.

  • Caffeine is a substance extracted from coffee beans. When ingested, usually through coffee, it increases alertness by blocking receptors in the brain that receive the signals that tell you it’s time to go to sleep.

    As much as caffeine has positive effects in your system, it also has its negatives depending on how much you consume it. The higher the intake, the more tolerance you build to it, which can lead to what you know as “coffee jitters”.

    Here are a few steps you can take to reduce the effects of drinking too much coffee:

    1. Drink lots of water
    After five hundred milligrams, your body will start to signal that you are dehydrated. Your urine will start to look dark yellow or even orange, which is a sign that you need to drink more water.

    Caffeine doesn’t trigger dehydration unless you drank 500 milligrams. As long as you stick to one or two cups of coffee a day, you should be able to steer clear of heart palpitations and jumpiness.

    2. Do mild exercises
    A little bit of stretching might help here and there, as well as a walk down a hallway or a flight of stairs. Doing mild physical activity will help your system calm down, and will allow your heart to return to its normal rate.

    3. Eat a banana or two
    … or other foods that are rich in potassium and magnesium, including dark leafy greens such as bok choi.

    If the symptoms of drinking too much coffee, such as elevated heart rate, migraine, and nervousness, are relatively mild, you can easily wait them out by avoiding coffee and other caffeinated beverages.

    4. Take a few deep breaths
    Once you start experiencing the effects of too much caffeine, the first and most immediate method of calming down is to breathe deeply. The increased intake of oxygen in the lungs will counteract the antioxidant effects of caffeine and help your system return to normal.

    It also helps you to calm down psychologically. While it may not have any immediate effects, taking in more oxygen will allow your brain to return to a more normal rate as it is using up a lot of nutrients in the body.

    5. Get some shut-eye
    The best way to deal with the symptoms of drinking too much caffeine is to simply get enough sleep and limit your coffee consumption.

    The most common reasons for drinking more than three cups of coffee include not getting enough sleep the night before, which in turn leads to an increase in the signals in the brain telling you to sleep.

    While blocking them with increasing amounts of caffeine will give you a temporary boost of alertness and energy, your system will eventually crash once the effects wear off.
