Healthy tips

Vatn er lífsorkan okkar.

Án vatns myndi allt líf á jörðu deyja. Og án þess að ég fari að vera voða djúp hérna að þá vita allir þetta með vatnið, er það ekki annars?

 
More energy.

The biggest reason we feel tired and have poor stamina is dehydration. If you make sure to drink enough water during the day, you will also sharpen your concentration and think faster.

Healthy skin.

If you drink enough water, you maintain the right level of moisture in your skin. Proper moisture prevents wrinkles and folds. Water also flushes the toxins you have ingested during the day out of your body.

You will lose weight.

Keeping the right amount of fluid in the body ensures that all the organs work properly. This also burns fat. The best thing about water is that it contains no calories.

Your body needs water.

Water helps nutrients and oxygen travel throughout the body and our vital organs. It maintains the correct body temperature and protects the joints and organs.

Remember the water bottle when we go to work in the morning and make sure not to lose the liquid during exercises.

The necessity of a good night's sleep
Getting a good night's sleep is essential for everyone to give the body a chance to nourish and achieve deep regeneration, which is one of the main foundations for mental and physical well-being.
 

Getting a good night's sleep is essential for everyone to give the body a chance to nourish and achieve deep regeneration, which is one of the main foundations for mental and physical well-being. Research shows that, contrary to public opinion, the main purpose of sleep does not necessarily seem to be to rest the body, because it rests by relaxing, or lying down on the couch without falling asleep. Rather, science is more inclined to believe that the purpose is mainly needed to rejuvenate the mind and brain and strengthen the immune and nervous systems. At the same time, the brain gets both a rest and an opportunity to process emotions and thoughts.

Many things affect sleep and sleeping habits, but few people notice what disturbs their sleep. Lack of sleep makes people confused, lethargic, and lack concentration, significantly reducing reaction time. Lack of sleep for many nights can cause sensory distortions, even hallucinations. There may also be changes in personality, such as people becoming unusually irritable and quick-tempered. Severe and persistent sleep disorders increase the likelihood of health problems, e.g., depression, infections, high blood pressure, stress, and obesity, to name a few.

What is sleep? 

Sleep is a normal state of unconsciousness, when the brain's electrical impulses are more rhythmic than when awake and less responsive to external stimuli. There are two basic stages of sleep, ie. deep sleep (non-REM) when regeneration occurs, but that stage is interrupted by periods of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep when most dreams occur. The stage of sleep that is considered particularly important for changes in the nervous system, such as the formation of new memories, is called REM sleep. Animals that are constantly awakened from REM sleep, but are otherwise allowed to sleep undisturbed, have a harder time learning new things. REM sleep also appears to be important for memory and learning in humans. For example, students during exams spend more time in REM sleep than at other times of the year. Likewise, a high percentage of the sleep of precocious children is in REM sleep, while a low percentage of the sleep of developmentally disabled children. Many argue that this is because during REM sleep, new memories are consolidated and connected to older ones. Therefore, the prevalence of dreams at this stage of sleep may be explained by the fact that the brain is "taking over".

How much sleep is needed?

How much sleep a person needs is individual. It is recommended that most adults receive at least 7-8 hours of sleep to achieve complete regeneration and rest, but the time decreases as people age (most millennials need about 6-7 hours). Some experts say we need more, while others say we can get by with less; this is still being researched. You can test what suits you by checking how you feel and performing daily tasks after different lengths of sleep.

Teenagers are growing rapidly and need at least 9 hours of sleep and that also applies to 9-12 year olds, 6-9 year olds need about 10 hours and 3-6 year olds should sleep from 10-12 hours a night. Toddlers between the ages of 1-3 need about 10-14 hours of sleep, and children under one year of age also need some sleep during the day.

Meditation is a method for guiding the mind in a certain direction, slowing down thoughts, and finding inner peace. It can be said that meditation is training for the mind, training in strengthening concentration and sharpening attention. Today, many people find it difficult to concentrate because there are so many stimuli in their minds. Meditation is, therefore, an effective way to improve concentration. 

There are many ways to meditate, and meditation stories, such as the ones we use at Hugarfresliti, are highly suitable to children and beginners. It is easy to visualize the mental journey that meditation is based on. The meditation stories are very graphic and encourage the imagination, which is unfortunately on the decline in our fast-paced world. One forgets time and place, gets into a better balance, renews one's energy, and strengthens one's self-image.

When is it good to use meditation?

  • To calm your mind
  • To train the imagination and boost creativity
  • When the stimulus is high
  • When concentration is needed
  • To increase awareness, balance and inner calm
  • Before sleep

A healthy and varied diet is essential for health and well-being. It is encouraged to prioritize variety and to choose foods rich in natural nutrients, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, vegetable oil, low-fat dairy products, fish, cod liver oil, lean meat, and more.

A varied and healthy diet is best for ensuring a balance of nutrients. Food supplements are usually unnecessary, but Icelanders, like others who live in northern areas, need to take vitamin D separately, either fish oil or vitamin D tablets. Furthermore, women who may become pregnant are advised to take a folate tablet daily. This page contains more detailed advice on diet and nutrients for adults.

Regular exercise is essential for mental and physical health and well-being. It is not only important for preventing many diseases, but it also gives strength to tackle daily tasks and promotes better sleep and rest in general. Exercise is known to be a powerful weapon against stress.

Many people are familiar with trying to incorporate exercise into their lifestyle but not being able to make it stick. A study was carried out in 2009 to examine which factors were important in making exercise a lifestyle. When looking at the people who exercised the most in their daily lives, it was those who enjoyed the exercise and found it enjoyable. Those who exercised the least were those who exercised primarily to increase their quality of life and improve their health.
