Health Tips

Every day it seems scientists and nutritionists are bringing us new health tips to convert us into living a healthy lifestyle.Some are good and some are bad and many are just regarded as old wives tales.

In more modern times we have been given advice on how many pieces of fruit or vegetables we should eat to how many units of alcohol we can drink,there is advice on how we should exercise and different super foods you should eat to ward of disease.

Is the advice good or bad,do we really need these health tips? Here are six new and rather different health tips for you to decide whether they are good or bad.

Exercise On A wednesday

Forget the Monday morning blues, some psychologists now reckon we reach our low point on a Wednesday.It is thought although we dread the Monday morning blues, we are almost expecting it and we tend to raise our spirits.

By Wednesday the slump has set in so this is the ideal time to exercise and get the feel good factor working.

Have A Sugar With Your Morning Brew

Taking sugar and caffeine together is thought to improve the brains performance, and taking them together was found to be better than taking them individually.

Scientists have conducted tests and found those who drunk sugar and caffeine together had a better memory recall and the brain operated more efficiently.

Eating Nuts In Their Shells

Nuts are full of protein but they are also high in fat and the theory here is that you will consume less calories.

What they are telling us is simple. The more time we spend shelling the nuts means that our stomachs will have more time to feel full.

Don't Sit In A Window Seat On A Plane

Dutch scientists believe you are more at risk of a blood clot if you sit near the window especially on long haul flights.Research suggests that sitting in the window seat doubles your chances of deep-vein thrombosis.

The increase in risk is understood to be because passengers find it easier to fall asleep near the window, and sleeping for long periods is known to raise the risk of a clot.

Don't Stand Up To Drink Your Coffee.

Although nearly 80 million cups of coffee are drunk in Britain each day opinions are divided on the affect of caffeine in relation to blood pressure. Certain studies suggest that it can reduce strokes, and others that it actually raises our blood pressure.

Latest studies by the University of Westminster show that blood pressure levels rise when coffee is drank while standing up. Although it is unclear whether there are any definite long term affects.

Sitting In The Middle

You will apparently appear more intelligent by sitting in the middle, and hence improve your chances of success.

Californian scientists have deemed your weaknesses and mistakes are more likely to be discounted by taking the central position.

The middle position is seen as the seat of power, and after studying the TV quiz show, The Weakest Link, it was noted that the contestants that occupied the middle podiums won more than their rivals.

So whether you are in a meeting or the classroom, sitting in the middle could give you an advantage.

      Thanks jpcmc, I tend to agree with you. What may work for one person may not work for everybody else.

      Health and wellness theories have come and gone. What we held as healthy before may be frowned upon today. The egg controversy is another. How many should I eat in a week? I'm confused. In the end, I'll just follow what works for me.
