Here are your April Health Tips from Legends Training Centre…
1Get a massage: Certain trigger points — spots of tension in musculoskeletal tissue — can cause back pain. Ask a massage therapist or other bodyworker who specializes in myofascial release or neuromuscular therapy to focus on these points during a massage.
2Nuts make great office snacks: They are full of protein and fat. These two nutrients help sustain your energy over a long period of time. When you’re energy is sustained, you’ll be able to focus and be more productive. A high‐carbohydrate snack, like crackers, granola/breakfast bars, or muffins will often give you a short burst of energy…and then the inevitable crash … hence the need for that third cup of coffee.
3Eat Avocados: For dry skin, incorporate more avocados into your diet. They’re rich in monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, both of which promote healthy skin. Try them on salads and sandwiches, and even in smoothies.
4Make small talk: Engaging in casual conversation with others may help keep you as sharp as doing a word puzzle, according to some studies. Just 10 minutes of daily chatter appears to improve mental function and preserve memory.
5Hydrate: To treat an acute migraine, drink a full glass of water — dehydration can trigger headaches. Even if you need to take a medication for the pain, try wrapping your head with an Ace bandage so that it covers your eyes, then lie down and breathe deeply. This often helps the pain pass more quickly
