R.E.S.T ...

I was chatting with my Amway friend on the subject of well-being. He mentioned four factors to well-being and good health , which I later thought it can be summarised into this acronym - R.E.S.T.

R stands for rest. A good night and enough hours of sleep will definitely give our health a boost and prepared us ready for the following day. Lack of sleep will definitely affects our performance in work as well as recreation or sports. We will not have the energy to enjoy the activities as well as we also will be moody and easily irritated. A good rest and sleep will also boost our immune system.

E definitely is exercise. Consistent and regular exercise will strengthens our mind and body, besides improving our stamina, reduce our blood pressure and bad cholesterol. It also regulates our mood and help us to sleep well. Try to exercise 4-5 times a week!

S stands for supplementing yourself with a good nutritious supplements or vitamins, besides eating and  never missed meals. I am not doing any distributor tasks for Amway but I find that taking good nutritions really helps to boost our health and mood. There are all kinds of nutritions for different needs. For example, a B complex is good to alleviate stress. Protein powder is good for body building, Q10 is good for the heart and etc.

T is for attitude. A joyful and stress free attitude is very important to our general well-being. And, the above three factors helps. A good night sleep will give us a good mood for the day, exercise helps to create the feel-good feeling in us and good supplements coupled with a nice hearty meal will boost up our good mood. Being kind, nice, taking up challenges , stay positive, worried free and so on will lit up our day!!

That was a good sharing from my friend and I thought it's great to share it here. Meanwhile, I had my Sapporo Miso Ramen on a cold rainy night. It was so so ... nice!! Warm and delicious!! :)


Have a good mid-week!

  8. S for Supplements.. yeah, while I think we need all kinds of vitamins and minerals, try to get them from natural sources and from the food we eat.. those that are not possible we need supplements.. and one important one but always being neglected is water, just H2O water..

    1. SK - Well, not easy to get all the nutrients from food unless you cook at home but also make sure the food you eat contains the vital vitamins and nutrients for the day. It's very tough especially for working folks like us.

  9. T for attitude.. err, maybe Temper would make this acronym sounds nicer?? with good and controlled temper, sure we get happier and subsequently more healthy!! :)
