Importance Of Hydration

download (14)

 

Hydration is extremely important because your body depends on water to survive. Without water the body would not be able to work properly. There is water found in every part of the body, in fact the human adult body is up to 60% water.

Water is lost daily through sweat, elimination, and breathing. You are losing water without even realizing it is happening. Environmental surroundings and physical activities also affect the amount of water loss. For instance, a person running on a sunny afternoon will lose bodily water at a much faster rate than a person sitting in an air conditioned house will lose water.

How Food Can Keep You Hydrated?

You are expected to drink plenty of water throughout the course of the day, but what about eating in order to stay hydrated? People often overlook this concept. How much water should we be getting from our diet? Experts recommend that about 20% of our daily water intake should come from solid foods.

Typically, the solid foods that are most rich in water are fruits and vegetable. This is one of the many reasons why it is important to keep a clean and whole diet, and stay away from processed foods as much as possible.

Top Ten Hydrating Foods

1. Yogurt can range in water content from 85 to 88%, depending on the variety. Use yogurt as a good snack to get more hydration into your diet.

2. Iceberg lettuce is often dismissed as having little nutritional value, but this lettuce makes up for this defect in water content. With over 95% water, iceberg lettuce has plenty of hydration opportunities.

3. Celery is rich in vitamin A, C, and K—as well as fiber. Additionally, celery is very low in calories, with six calories per stalk. Celery has a large content of water.

4. Strawberries are a delicious treat made up of over 90% water. They are chocked full of vitamin C and fiber, so they make for a nutritious and delicious way to remain hydrated.

5. Butternut squash is a more substantial vegetable that still has a high content of water. Butternut squash hydrates and nourishes when consumed, with close to 90% water and it also has vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and more.

6. Spinach is another option for lettuce that still packs plenty of water, but also more nutrients than that of iceberg lettuce. Get your fill of essential antioxidants, fiber, folate, vitamin E, and more while hydrating with spinach.

7. Broccoli has over 90% of water, and it delivers valuable nutrition with high levels of the necessary fiber, potassium, and other vitamins for good health.

8. Watermelon is true to its name, it is a melon made up of mostly water. In addition to water, watermelons are rich in lycopene and vitamin C, too. This fruit is a refreshing way to hydrate, and especially on a hot summer day.

9. Cucumbers are composed almost entirely of water. They are a great veggie to add to any meal, salad or even as a healthy very low calorie snack in order to hydrate with solid food.

10. Tomatoes can be included as a great addition of water to a meal. They can be wedged between two pieces of bread, chopped on a salad, eaten as a snack or served any way you wish.

Dehydrating Foods To Avoid

• Cured meats
• Popcorn
• Asparagus
• Fried foods
• Caffeine
• Condiments high in sodium
• Other processed foods

Here are some signs you can look for when trying to determine whether or not you are dehydrated, but when in doubt—go ahead and drink some water!

• Decreased urination
• Lightheadedness
• Fatigue
• Disorientation
• Dry mouth
• Thirstiness

Final Thoughts

By paying attention to the signs of dehydration, we can help avoid dangerous situations due to loss of water. This is especially important during hot summer months, when it is much easier to become dehydrated.

You can also combat dehydration by taking the steps to understand the importance of hydration to your body and its functions, as well as how hydrating foods can be introduced into your diet.

Commit yourself to drinking plenty of liquid and eating a proper diet to ensure optimal hydration and health.

Hot Wings

13102775_1147558291941129_5853202202983704337_n[1]

Hot Wings
 
These are sure to be a big hit!!
Ingredients
  • 24-30 Chicken wings (may cut into 2 pieces each)
  • 1 bottles of Hot sauce (your choice)
  • 2-4 Tbsp. butter (NOT margarine)
  • 2-4 Tbsp. salt
  • enough water to cover all wings
  • season salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder or garlic salt(We use wildtree garlic galore)
Instructions
  1. If you are not cutting your wings into pieces fold them so they stay folded.
  2. In a large bowl that has a lid, (big enough to hold all the wings) place your 2-4 tbsp of non iodized salt and pour in a little bit of water to dissolve the salt. Once salt is dissolved place all chicken wings in bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak in salt water in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. If you have cut them into 2 pieces each it should only take a couple of hours.
  3. Take wings out of water, and discard water. Rinse salt brine off of chicken and pat dry.
  4. Sprinkle chicken with spices of your choice and prepare the grill. Grill chicken until completely cooked through. Needs to reach an internal temperature of 160.
  5. While chicken is grilling you can prepare your sauce.
  6. Empty both bottles of hot sauce into a saucepan and add butter. Let sauce come to a boil. Turn off heat. (Tip: Do Not take a deep breath over this sauce it will choke you, I learned from experience ha)
  7. When your wings are cooked, turn sauce back on and bring to a boil. Start dipping your wings into the sauce, making sure they are coated very well. (My family likes a lot of sauce on wings so I let the wings sit in sauce for a couple of minutes)
  8. Repeat with all wings, the longer the sauce boils the thicker it will get.

Living In The Moment To Improve Performance And Achieve Peace Of Mind

download (5)

Humans can only focus on one thing at a time. Nobody is really sure why this is the case, but it is true that if you pay attention to one thing, the stimulation from the focal object seems to shut out all other stimuli. This is both a blessing and a curse.

Yes, there are many people who would like to be able to multitask far better than they are currently able, but the payoff might not be worth the sacrifice.

Many studies have shown that multitasking increases stress as the amount of perceived stressors goes up (Mark et al. 2014). It also slows the mind down and makes it less effective. Dividing and distracting the mind causes mental course changes and thus stagnation.

Think of a dog who is trying to pursue three different balls thrown in opposite directions. She runs two steps in one direction, three in another, and one step in another. She ends up not going anywhere at all. The mind is the same way.

The more time you spend changing mental direction the less time you have to actually focus on the task at hand. The more directions or mental tasks you add, the less effective at them you become.

Needless Worry

download (7)

But that’s not the whole story. When worrying about events or tasks that are not directly involved with the present task, you are in effect worrying about things that you have no control over. In that case, worrying about it will not make it better, and will only tax your mental and emotional resources, making you less effective.  (This, I know first hand, sigh…)

You cannot gain anything from it, only lose, and if there is a fight you cannot win no matter how hard you try, then it is probably best not to engage in the fight in the first place.

Others might argue that if they can’t use their conscious mind to multitask, then why not use the subconscious instead? While it may not be obvious, people use their subconscious mind a lot more than they think. It is actually one of the most powerful tools humans possess.

When answering a question about what happened last week for example, a person doesn’t usually have to consciously go back and examine every minute of every day to find the answer. Instead, the subconscious mind takes over, instantly searching the brain’s archives, finding the correct answer, and then delivering it to the conscious brain.

This is typical of almost any task involving memorized actions and facts. Like conscious thoughts, these subconscious processes also utilize brain processing capacity and energy, and even take a toll on your emotions.

When compared to the parts of a computer, the conscious mind is somewhat like the user interface, the part that becomes visible on screen, which can then be affected by the click of a mouse to execute a command. The subconscious on the other hand is like the processor.

While invisible, it actually does most of the work, executing on every command within milliseconds after the user initiates it. Like a computer though, if you ask it to run to many commands simultaneously, or a command that is far too large and complex, it will freeze and lock up.

For example, let’s you are trying to finish up an urgent project at work, but you just recently had a fight with your partner. Your subconscious mind has not stopped ruminating on what was said and felt during the argument, and you suddenly find yourself far less able to focus on the project, and you are much more irritable than usual, even though you are no longer actively thinking about the fight itself.

This happens because while your conscious mind is focused on the project, your subconscious continues to reflect on it, and react emotionally to it. The emotional response of your brain then has a physiological and psychological effect, absorbing all of your processing capacity and coloring every other thought you have, even those that have nothing to do with the fight at all.

Another common objection to the philosophy of living in the moment is that the present isn’t the only important time frame. The future is important too. While that is definitely true, there is a glaring caveat that needs to be added to that phrase.

While we should think about the future, even the distant future, it is something we should do only occasionally to redirect and orient our current actions towards where we want to go.

It should never be something that consumes a large percentage of our mental time, because like the past, the future cannot be changed by thinking about it. It can be changed however by what we do in the moment.

Stressing over the future is dangerous for another reason, as it allows you to effectively stack up multiple stressful “moments” at once. This can overload the mind, causing an emotional crash (going back to the computer analogy) followed by mental paralysis.

The brain does not always do a great job at separating ideas out through time. It tends to only look at the absolute size of the task involved. So if you can break your tasks and challenges down into bite-sized chunks, your mind will not perceive as much stress, and will not balk at the task so easily. This is a great way to cure a stubborn case of procrastination.

Those are all the negative aspects of focusing on too many things at once, but there is an upside to this phenomenon as well.

The Zone

download (9)

Focusing on one consuming task has a therapeutic effect. Every single person has probably had at least one time in their life when she devoted herself wholly to a specific task, and found that it pulled her into “the zone,” forgetting completely about everything else.

This “zone” is a maximal state of attention, which can mean a maximal state of enjoyment, or a maximal state of pain, depending on the nature of the activity. The more you focus on a stimuli, the more you feel it. But the opposite is also true, the less you focus on it, the less you can feel or perceive it.

The body uses this principle to help reduce pain. When a person suffers from a cut, burn, or other painful injury, the pain can be diminished by massaging the area around the wound.

By doing so, the sensory nerves that react to the massage send pulses to the spinal cord. At the same time however, it is also sending inhibitory pulses to the nerves nearby, which lessens the sensation of pain coming from nerves in the damaged region of the body. Scientists have even developed devices that can stimulate the nerves so much that they can negate a large portion of pain from severe injuries.

The psychological effect in brain works the same way. We can effectually block out stressful thoughts by occupying our mental channels with what is going on in the moment.

This is the phenomenon known as “diversion,” which in some languages is a synonym for “fun.” Diversion is the core of using the present moment to find peace of mind. When life is full of chaotic elements that threaten to overwhelm, it is simple to forget them all simply by focusing solely on what you are doing in the present.

The activity does not even have to be exceptionally pleasurable for this to work. Scrubbing the bath tub might work just as well as binge-watching your favorite TV series. In fact, scrubbing the tub might be even more effective as it requires the involvement of all five of your senses, instead of just sight and sound.

For this reason, many individuals find activities such as gardening, jogging, sports, painting, and crafts to be very therapeutic in this regard. Even workplace activities, when not held to an urgent deadline, can also make you more relaxed.

This principle is also a fundamental aspect of many types of meditation. The difference is that instead of using your physical senses to engage your mind, meditation seeks to absorb your mental totality simply with the use of conscious thought.

Regardless of the method or activity you choose, using diversion tactics can be a singularly effective way of bring peace to a troubled mind.
