Nike Knows What We All Think When We Work Out

Nike's newest campaign, "Better for It" is here to address that little voice in your head that says that you can't do something.
It's all about finding motivation and pushing through, because all of these girls DID do it and are all stronger for it. Because, as the video says, "You have to get good before you get great."

10 tips for healthy eating
Unlike what you can imagine, having a balanced diet is not such a difficult task. You need to follow three basic rules: consume variety, with quality and moderation. This is possible with discipline and awareness of what is really needed for your body. See the tips! Eat fresh foods Fresh or minimally processed foods, of vegetable origin, are the basis of a balanced diet. Include on the menu: beans, nuts, tubers, grains, fruits, vegetables and greens. Avoid excess salt, sugar, oils and fats Use salt, sugar, oils and fats in small amounts. Excessive sugar consumption contributes to obesity; the improper use of salt, oils and fats can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. Avoid ultra-processed foods The natural manufacturing process for ready-made foods generally includes high amounts of salt, sugar, oils and fats. In addition, they also bring other substances for industrial use and synthesized in the laboratory from sources such as oil and coal, which do not favor a balanced diet. So, avoid consuming foods like: chips stuffed cookies cake mix instant noodles powder soup ready seasoning  soft drinks Consume functional foods Functional foods are those that help prevent or reduce the risk of some diseases. Soy and fish, for example, help to reduce bad cholesterol; chestnuts, almonds, walnuts, onions and garlic, help the immune system; cabbage, cabbage and broccoli can protect against some types of cancer. Include fiber in your diet Studies indicate that fiber-rich foods, such as brown rice, help reduce the risk of some types of cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, they promote satiety and help control body weight. Make a weekly menu Create a weekly plan with the week's menu. This will help to organize food throughout the days and avoid the consumption of ready-made and ultra-processed foods. Make grocery list With the weekly plan in hand, choose a day of the week to go to the fair and the supermarket. Make a shopping list to help you not include items in the cart that will not contribute to your health. Have a balanced breakfast Your healthy choices start in the morning with a breakfast consisting of foods such as whole grain bread, cereals, tapioca, egg, yogurt, cheese and fruit. In addition to nourishing the body, they will give you the energy you need to start the day in a good mood. Eat intermediate meals Eating every three hours favors the proper functioning of the intestine. Include healthy food such as fresh fruit, plain yogurt, nuts and walnuts in between meals. Mindfulness when eating Try to focus while eating your meals. Eating while watching TV or accessing your cell phone can make you consume more than necessary. Also, use that moment to feel the texture and flavor of the food and enjoy each bite. Conclusion Healthy eating should prioritize fresh or minimally processed foods As we have seen, the basis of healthy eating is the proper choice of foods and ingredients. Avoiding ultra-processed foods as much as possible and opting for food in its most natural form, respecting the regions and seasons of production and harvesting, is fundamental. Look for small producers in your region to buy your food. Make at home, as much as you can, the preparation of your meals. You will notice that, in addition to being healthier, there is nothing more delicious than food that tastes like home. Value the food you eat, because then you will be valuing your body and your health. “You are what you eat”, have you heard that phrase? So, review your eating habits to build a healthier and more positive relationship with food. You will gain in disposition, energy, quality of life and, we have no doubt, taste.

3-Minute Morning Yoga
1. Start in bed, right after you wake. Baddha Konasana is one of my favorites. It helps to open the hips & stretch out all the muscles that we often forget. Bring the bottoms of your feet together & allow your knees to fall out to either side. Back straight, breath slow, you can gently press down on your knees with your palms, or wrap your fingers around your toes, and close your eyes. Stay here for 30 seconds to a minute. 2. Now, rest first on your knees, then sitting to the right side of your heels. Grab hold of your left shin and gently cross your left leg over the top of the right so that your knees are stacked. Your left foot will be by your right hip, and the right foot near the left hip. Rest here for a moment with a straight spine. 3. When you’re ready, switch sides. Sit over to the left side of your heels, and cross your right leg over the left. Untwist yourself and stretch your legs out in front of you. Inhale here, noticing the release of the muscles in your ankles, thighs, and hips. Reach your arms up overhead, straighten your back, and lean forward, reaching first for your knees, then your shins, and maybe even your toes. If it’s available to you, wrap your pointer finger around each big toe. Rest here for 30 seconds to a minute. 4. From here, I like to bring my right heel in near my pelvis and extend the left leg out to the side. I reach up, straighten my spine, and twist my torso over to the right before gently stretching over to reach my left toes. It’s a beautiful way to both stretch & twist the spine and muscles in the back. Stay here for as long as you’d like before switching over to the right side. 5. To end your practice, no matter how long, we bring our palms together & press the inside edges of both to our heart. Breathe in, and out. Savor this moment. Let it melt on your tongue. Then, move forward.
Childhood Leukemia
Leukemia — Cancer of blood is called Leukemia. It develops in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is a soft inner part of the bone (such as thigh and hip bone) where new RBC, WBC & Platelets are formed. As we know, bone marrow also produces WBC or Leucocytes. As soon as the number of mature WBC is enough, then the body sends a signal to stop new cells’ formation. But in Leukemia, these newly formed cells stay immature for a long time. Consequently, the body cannot send any signal, so new cells form inside the bone marrow. The bone marrow becomes crowded with immature and abnormal WBC. Childhood Leukemia — Children of the age group of a newborn child to a 19-year-old. According to a study conducted in 2018, 29% of cancer in children is of childhood leukemia. The most common Leukemia in children is ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) and AML (Acute myeloid leukemia). Early Symptoms of Childhood Leukemia a. Dull or pale skin b. Weakness or feeling of tiredness c. Headaches and Dizziness d. Trouble in breathing e. Fever and frequent infection f. Bleeding gums or nosebleeds Types of Childhood Leukemia: Leukemia typically in kids can be categorized into two major types. A. Common types of Leukemia a. Acute lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), also called acute lymphocytic Leukemia is fast-growing Leukemia of lymphoid cells. This type is widespread in kids; it’s the proliferation of B and T cells lymphocyte precursor. Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) accounts for 75–85% of cases of childhood leukemia. b. Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML): AML is also a common type of childhood leukemia. This is the fast-growing Leukemia of myeloid cells. B. Rare types of Leukemia a. Hybrid or mixed-lineage Leukemia: This is chromosome-related Leukemia where part of chromosome 11 translocates to any other chromosome. Children having mixed-lineage Leukemia have a poor prognosis. b. Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia: This is slow-growing Leukemia of myeloid cells. c. Chronic lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL): CLL is very rare in children. This is the slow-growing Leukemia of lymphoid cells. d. Juvenile myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML): This is a scarce type of childhood leukemia where WBC production in bone marrow is severely dysregulated. Diagnosis of Childhood Leukemia There are various tests to diagnose and confirm childhood leukemia. These tests also help in classifying the type of Leukemia. The initial tests include: a) Blood tests to measure the number of blood cells and see how they appear. b) Biopsy and Bone marrow aspiration test: To confirm Leukemia, a tissue sample is usually taken from the pelvic bone. c) Spinal Tap test or Lumbar puncture: This test is done to know the spread of cancer cells in the fluid (cerebrospinal fluid) present in the spinal cord or brain. These tests also determine the method of treatment to be followed. Risk factors of Childhood Leukemia More study is needed to explore the possible reasons, but few of them are environmental factors like exposure to radiation, smoking, genetic factors, inherited problems related to immune systems, etc. Treatment of Childhood Leukemia: Once the oncologist confirms the diagnosis, the child will undergo chemotherapy medicines. In highly developed countries, the cure rate for ALL (Acute lymphoblastic leukemia) is more than 80–90%, and for acute myeloid Leukemia, it is more than 60–70%. In developing countries, poor accessibility or affordability, malnutrition, poor tolerability to treatment, and delayed diagnosis bring down the cure rate to almost 70% in ALL and around 50% in AML. a) Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses powerful chemicals and is done to target and kill cancerous cells. Chemotherapy works throughout the body. b) Blood Transfusion: This is a process of transferring healthy blood components into a patient’s blood circulation system intravenously. This process helps in replacing red blood cells, platelets, and other blood components. c) Radiation Therapy: This is also known as Radiotherapy or RT or XRT. This therapy uses a beam of ionizing radiation to kill the cancer cells. d) Bone Marrow Transplant: BMT is performed to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow. In this process, blood stem cells are transplanted into the circulation. Later on, these blood stem cells reach the bone marrow area to produce and promote new blood cells. Treatment of Relapsing Leukemia Despite chemotherapy, around 20% of ALL and about 40–50% of AML can come back with the disease within two to five years of initial diagnosis. This reoccurrence of infection is called relapse. Again, these children will go through a similar test like complete blood count, bone marrow evaluation to confirm the deterioration. After confirmation, they will have to undergo a higher dose of chemotherapy of a different combination or Bone Marrow Transplant.

WHO’s International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP)
People from more than one country and one medical or research institution can participate in a clinical trial. Different countries have different clinical research requirements, so one clinical trial may be enlisted on more than one registry. That clinical trial shall appear on the database of more than one registry. However, data on various clinical trial registries varies. . Take Clinical Research Course from the Best. The International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) is a global initiative by WHO, responsible for linking clinical trial registers worldwide for ensuring a single point of access and the apparent identification of clinical trials. This was done with the view that participants, patients, families, and patient groups have easy access to information. The ICTRP was established with the aim to make information about all clinical trials that involve humans publicly available. It also aims to achieve the following: ● Improving the comprehensiveness, completeness, and accuracy of registered clinical trials data; ● Communicating and raising awareness of the need for registering clinical trials; ● Ensuring the accessibility of registered data; ● Building capacity for clinical trial registration; ● Encouraging the utilization of registered data; and ● Ensuring the sustainability of the ICTRP. . Take the Best Training in Clinical Research. The Secretariat of the ICTRP is housed by the World Health Organization in its headquarters in Geneva and is responsible for the following: ● Publishes the ICTRP search portal: A database and website that makes it possible for every person in the world to search for free data provided by clinical trial registries around the world. The data is updated weekly and meets WHO’s criteria for content and quality. ● Supports the WHO registry network: A forum created to establish and work together for the purpose of clinical trial registries. It aims to establish best practices for clinical trial registration and the collection of high-quality, accurate data. ● Supports different countries and regions: It aims to establish clinical trial registries or policies on trial registration.
Yoga Secrets for Beginners
Hey you! You yoga beginner! I heard you making big statements about how 2015 was going to finally be the year you devote yourself to this practice. So let's get right to it shall we? Before we even think about touching our toes or focusing on breathing, let's make sure we really understand what yoga is: 1. Yoga is not a religion. It is a way of life, a type of exercise, a practice. Yoga is all about moving your body and understanding yourself. It is about bringing the world around and within you into focus. 2. Yoga is not a “push until you drop” practice. There are poses that can be mistaken as sleeping on the floor, the Child's pose is made for complete relaxation. This is not always a practice that will have you out of breath and begging for mercy! 3. This isn't a quick weight loss plan. You first build muscle and are working on your strength so that a few months after you begin you will find your body burning fat like it never has before. Get into yoga for more than just the weight loss benefits. Think of the mental health benefits too! 4. Get a good mat. I started yoga using a beach towel. No good. It completely changes your practice to have a mat that is thick and comfortable but most of all grips well. 5. No one is watching you. Seriously, I used to be so paranoid about how I looked in class, but once you really get involved in yoga you realize it is just you and your mat. Say hi to your neighbors when you get there, and then forget about them until the practice is over. 6. When you wake up “too sore” to go to yoga, go anyway. One of the best things you can do for your soreness is stretch it out. 7. Practice on an empty stomach. A light snack may be good before cardio, but not yoga. You are using the core so much, you want to come to class with an empty stomach and an open mind. 8. Take pictures. I know a lot of you will never post any, and that is totally fine. I have found that when I am down on my practice or get discouraged, I look at old pictures and compare with current ones. It will shock you how far you’ve come so quickly. 9. That moment when you are stretching, it is painful, and you want to give up and get out of the pose, give it one more full breath, breathing into where the pain is. It is a mind over matter game! 10. Have fun. This is your journey. It is never over!
