Top 3 Wellness Things in Condo Living

When you think of living in a condo unit or in a building with several doors and units upon opening your own doors, you’d think of a very limited and small space also limiting you to do other things aside from of course the usual things we do at home (resting, eating, sleeping). Condo living can get very comfortable that sometimes we tend to become couch potatoes, and a lazy ass who would refuse to do something else other than eating and sleeping. So, okay I am taking out my megaphone to say, hey you! Get up and look around and move! Living in a condo unit does not mean you also live an unhealthy lifestyle.

That brings me to my Top 3 list of wellness things in condo living. Because living in a condo does not mean you confine yourself to the four corners of your unit. Take advantage of what the building offers to live a healthier lifestyle while enjoying the comfort of condo living.

Amenities

Check out the amenities your building is offering. For Primavera Residences, the wellness amenities is a great bonus for its residents. At the rooftop, you will find the gym accessible and open for your strength training or whatever program you have that will need gym equipment. There’s also the swimming pool where you can do lapses, perfect for your cardio needs and total body workout. There’s also the playground, where you can do yoga, stretching, pilates, or whatever workout you feel like doing outdoors. Love to run? Check out the joggers path and get to run without going far from your home. Imagine the convenience of working out few steps away for your home!

Sunlight

We all need a ray of sunshine. Okay, that’s a little cheesy! Seriously though, to stay healthy, we need a little sunshine. If you are not the morning person like me, do find time to wake up a bit early few times a week and get to the rooftop and get some sunshine. According to the World Health Organization, getting anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes of sunlight on your arms, hands, and face two to three times a week is enough to enjoy the vitamin D-boosting benefits of sun. Soaking some morning sun is a good idea, health-wise.

Trivia: Weak bones, lack of calcium and various skin and hair issues are triggered by Vitamin D deficiency.

Natural Ventilation

“Natural ventilation is the process of supplying and removing air through an indoor space by natural means, meaning without the use of a fan or other mechanical system. It uses outdoor air flow caused by pressure differences between the building and its surrounding to provide ventilation and space cooling.”

Primavera City is designed just like that. Designed to increase natural ventilation and decrease aircon energy consumption. How is it beneficial to your health? Why is it considered part of your wellness? Well, buildings that offers Natural Ventilation like Primavera City is definitely a good pick to live in or to invest as it produces healthier environments since the flow of air prevents a harmful contaminant build up. And because they consume less energy, naturally ventilated buildings can produce less CO2 than comparable mechanically ventilated buildings.

So there you go, my top 3 wellness things to do when in a condo living lifestyle. You just have to be resourceful and committed to live a healthier life, that way you get to appreciate what’s around you other than the place you sleep in.

MEGAFIBER – Don’t let constipation or diarrhea ruin your vacation

MEGAFIBER Product Shot - Groupshot 2017

Make MEGAFIBER your travel companion

Bags packed and ready to go on vacation? Make sure you’ve got everything you need from travel documents, cash and credit cards, appropriate clothing, toiletry bag basics, to vitamins and medicines. You will also need MEGAFIBER to counter constipation or diarrhea attack that can potentially ruin your holiday. Constipation and diarrhea are two common woes that spoil the fun for travelers.

Travel constipation can be due to a sudden change in your usual diet. It may also be caused by a disruption in your daily routine or bathroom habit. If you’re on the road at the time when you ordinarily relieve yourself, the tendency is to suppress the urge to move. Not going when you needed to results to hardened stools. The unease of using other bathroom facilities can also prevent you from doing your thing.

As for diarrhea, most people point to contaminated food or water as the culprit. Eating at the wrong time and trying various delicacies or local dishes for the first time can also lead to diarrhea while on vacation.

MEGAFIBER Product Shot - Groupshot 2017

MEGAFIBER effectively treats both constipation and diarrhea. It is available at Mercury Drug outlets nationwide in bigger 7.5g travel sachets, available per piece (P11) and boxes of 30 sachets (P325), and in bigger 300g jars (P430). It is also offered in half-kilo family size packs (P705) for even greater savings. Each MEGAFIBER sachet and jar packs more fiber goodness to give more value for your money.

If constipated, take one tablespoon of MEGAFIBER mixed with your favourite drink ideally during breakfast, and drink lots of fluids all day. When MEGAFIBER absorbs liquids, it forms a slippery film and swells by 8 to 14 times its normal weight and forms a soft, bulky mass that passes quickly and easily through the colon and acts like a sponge in the intestinal tract. It also helps stimulate the reflex needed for the bowels to empty. Since MEGAFIBER is a non-irritant bulking laxative, it does not result in an immediate need to find a toilet which can be embarrassing.

If suffering from diarrhea, you will also benefit from MEGAFIBER since it not only absorbs water from watery stools, its bulking effect slows down the bowel and reduces bowel movement, reducing the number of times that you must go to the bathroom. Increased intake of fiber absorbs excess water in stools and consequently allows the intestinal muscles something to hold on to. Unlike other medication, taking new MEGAFIBER to stop diarrhea does not result in constipation. When treating diarrhea, take the same dose of MEGAFIBER and lessen your fluid intake.

Aside from promoting digestive health, MEGAFIBER also helps regulate blood sugar and uric acid, reduces cholesterol, and assists in weight management. It is FDA-approved and is all-natural. It does not contain additives, sweeteners, preservatives, artificial colors or flavoring. It is also cholesterol-free, yeast-free and gluten-free. It is nothing but 100% psyllium fiber, nature’s best and most efficient source of natural dietary fiber.

Finding A Doctor

A primary care physician is a doctor who you will see if there are any issues with your health. You will go to the doctor when you’re sick or if you need to have a well-check to make sure that the blood levels in the body are normal and that other aspects of the body are normal. If there are any issues that arise, then the physician can refer you to a specialist who can further investigate the health issues. There are some tips to keep in mind when searching for a primary care physician Spring TX offers so that you feel comfortable talking about your health.

Keep the location of your doctor in mind. You want to find a doctor who is close to your home in the event of an emergency so that you don’t have to travel a long distance. Another location aspect to consider is that you might want to find an office that is close to work so that you can go on your lunch break or before or after you get off.

Think about your health plan. There are some doctors that might not be in your network when looking at your insurance coverage. If you find a doctor who is in the network, then it will mean paying less out of your pocket for the co-payment. You can contact the insurance group to find out who is in your network and who isn’t so that you avoid surprise charges from the insurance company.

Look for a doctor who meets the needs that you have as well as other members of the family. A primary care physician will often see everyone in the household. However, if you need to see the doctor because of heart conditions or issues with the stomach, then you need to look for one who is involved with that area of expertise. Ask the doctor for referrals. Talk to patients about the care that is provided and how the doctor talks to the patients. If you don’t feel comfortable, then you won’t want to visit the doctor and take care of your health.
