According to the National Institute of Mental Health, routine stress that becomes chronic can result in a host of negative side effects. Such stress can suppress the immune system, disrupt digestion and have an adverse effect on sleep. But men and women who feel stressed at the end of each day need not resign themselves to sleepless nights and/or weakened immune systems. A proactive approach to alleviating stress during the day can help men and women reduce their stress levels and avoid the negative side effects associated with chronic stress.

Walk away. The APA notes that taking a break from a stressor is one of a handful of healthy techniques that research has indicated is a successful way to reduce stress, both in the short- and long-term.

coworker about something unrelated to the project. Avoiding the stress entirely, especially if it’s a work project or a bill that must be paid, is not the answer. But a short break from the stressor and thinking about it can provide a new perspective and time to calm down. Meditate. When stressed out, men and women should not discount the potential benefits of meditation. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University examined more than 19,000 meditation studies, ultimately concluding that mindful meditation can ease stresses like anxiety, depression and pain. The APA notes that such meditation has been found to reap immediate benefits, potentially helping people who can find time to meditate during the day to prevent their stress from accumulating throughout a hectic workday. Find time to exercise. The APA notes that research continues to support the notion that exercise is as beneficial to the mind as it is to the body. Exercising several days per week is especially

beneficial to mind and body, but even 20-minute exercise sessions, including a walk around the grounds of an office complex or a quick swim during a lunch break, in the midst of stressful days can help people combat stress for several hours afterward. Delegate more during the day. Work is the third-leading source of stress among Americans. Men and women who feel overworked may benefit by delegating more tasks during their days or simply stepping back and taking on less work. The potential effects on your career of taking on less work will likely pale in comparison to the toll chronic stress, which can contribute to heart disease and stroke, takes on your body. Stress is a part of daily life for many people. But there are several simple and quick ways for stressed out men and women to reduce their stress during the day.

The many ways cardiovascular exercise benefits your body

C

ardiovascular exercise has long been noted as an important component of a well-rounded fitness regimen. But even the most ardent exercise enthusiast may not know just how profound an impact cardiovascular exercise, often referred to as “cardio,” can have on various parts of the body. According to the Cleveland Clinic, cardio affects the body from head to toe, providing some surprising benefits. • Brain: The brain benefits from cardiovascular exercise in myriad ways. Cardio increases blood flow and decreases a person’s risk of stroke, a potentially debilitating and even deadly interruption in the flow of blood to the brain. Cardio also has been shown to improve memory and cognitive ability, while helping men and women combat age-related decline in brain function. • Skin: Even skin, the largest organ in the human body, can benefit

from cardio. Routine cardiovascular exercise can increase circulation, contributing to clearer, healthier skin. • Blood: The blood that flows throughout the human body is no exception when it comes to benefitting from cardiovascular exercise. Cardio helps control blood sugar and improves levels of highdensity lipoprotein, also known as “good” cholesterol.

• Lungs: The lungs benefit from cardiovascular exercise because cardio improves exercise ability, decreasing the demand on the lungs the more people exercise. That also helps reduce fatigue and shortness of breath in people with chronic lung problems.

• Muscles: Exercise enthusiasts who love to strength train should not discount the benefits of including cardio in their workout regimens, which can increase oxygen supply to muscles, allowing them to work harder. Cardio also helps muscles adapt to an increased workload that can make routine activities seem easier.

• Bones and joints: Cardio has a profound impact on bones and joints, helping even those with arthritis more capably manage their discomfort and maintain their range of motion. Aging men and women can employ cardiovascular exercise to combat osteoporosis, a condition linked to aging in which bones become fragile and brittle from loss of tissue.

• Pancreas: Cardio improves the ability of the pancreas to control the body’s blood sugar levels, thereby decreasing stress on this vital gland and reducing a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

• Mind: Cardiovascular exercise has even been shown to improve mood, especially when cardio is performed at the end of stressful days. Cardio also can help combat depression and improve self-esteem.

The growing threat of vaping

Health and Wellness Professionals Directory 2018 - 2019

Teenagers continue to be drawn to e-cigarettes and vaping.

Cigarette smoking continues to decline among pre-teens and teenagers according to a survey from Monitoring the Future. But the number of young people who are vaping or smoking e-cigarettes has increased. This underscores the importance of greater education for youngsters and their parents about the potential hazards of vaping. The popularity of vaping is troubling. A study from researchers at the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine that was published in the journal Pediatrics found the rising frequency of e-cigarette use was a significant risk factor for future conventional cigarette use. In the study, researchers surveyed 1,408 Connecticut high school students three times, in autumn 2013, spring 2014 and autumn

Did you know?

2015, on their use of e-cigarettes and traditional tobacco cigarettes. Teens who used an e-cigarette within a month of participating in the survey in 2013 had seven times greater odds of smoking tobacco cigarettes in 2014. A year later, e-cigarette users were more than three times more likely to smoke tobacco cigarettes. Perceptions that vaping is less harmful than conventional cigarettes may be a contributing factor to their rising popularity. Also, the widespread availability of these products and their assorted flavors may be appealing to youth. Vaping ads may be enticing kids, too. Cigarette ads glamorizing smoking have all but vanished. However, vaping ads are becoming more noticeable. According to a National Youth Tobacco

Survey, about seven in 10 middle and high school students were exposed to e-cigarette advertisements in 2014, when the vaping trend began to explode. Even though e-cigarettes are marketed to be safer than traditional cigarettes because they purportedly contain fewer chemicals and harmless water vapor, some experts say this isn’t the case. No federal agency oversaw initial development of the e-cigarette industry, so no standards exist — although this may be changing soon. One Food and Drug Administration review of 18 different e-cigarette cartridges found toxic and carcinogenic chemicals in some but not others. Also, some products that were labeled to be nicotine-free actually did have nicotine. Many vaping juices contain nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavorings. No long-term evidence regarding the safety of these chemicals when inhaled exists. The American Lung Association says some e-cigarettes use diacetyl, a buttery-flavored chemical once used in food production like popcorn. When inhaled, diacetyl causes bronchiolitis obliterans — more commonly referred to as “popcorn lung.” This is a scarring of the tiny air sacs in the lungs that results in the thickening and narrowing of the airways. Some teens also replace the e-juice with marijuana and hash oils. These vaporized oils produce little smell, which makes them hard to detect. Vaping may seem like a harmless trend. But parents and children should be cognizant of the threats that vaping poses to one’s overall health.

A 2015 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair survey found that smoking is not just among the most unhealthy habits, but also the most irritating. The survey, conducted by telephone among a random sample of 1,019 adults across the United States, found that 32 percent of participants consider smoking to be the most irritating habit. While smoking and its effects on both smokers and nonsmokers subjected to secondhand smoke can contribute to problems such as heart disease and stroke, 23 percent of those polled cited using crude language as the bad habit that irritates them the most. Twenty percent of survey participants said speaking while chewing food was the bad habit that irritated them the most, while smacking gum (8 percent) and biting nails (4 percent) rounded out the top five. Though smoking might have earned the distinction of most irritating bad habit, 10 percent of respondents admitted lighting up a cigarette was the bad habit they would most likely do in secret.

Simple ways to kick bad habits Educating oneself about the consequences of unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, may compel people to overcome their bad habits.

B

ad habits run the gamut, from the relatively innocuous, such as biting one’s nails, to the potentially deadly, such as smoking tobacco. As much as people may strive to avoid bad habits, few people may say they don’t have at least one.

A 2015 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll found that people tend to be more judgmental of themselves than others when it comes to bad habits. Nearly seven in 10 Americans admitted they judge themselves more than they judge other people. Men and women who are hard on themselves when it comes to their bad habits may want to try some of the following techniques to break those behaviors. Employ the buddy system. Men and women who aspire to lose weight often stay motivated by exercising alongside a friend or family member and/or encouraging their families to adopt certain dietary changes. The buddy system also can be employed when trying to break bad habits. Whether a partner, family member or friend is trying to break the same bad habit or not, having someone along to praise your successes and discourage you from falling back into bad habits can make overcoming certain behaviors that much easier. Try something new. When trying to quit a bad habit, having something to

do in its place can help. For example, men and women who want to spend less time staring at their devices or watching television can benefit from finding something healthy to do in the hours they would normally be spending online or on the couch. For example, adults may find joining a recreational sports league gets them out of the house on weeknights when they would otherwise be sitting at home watching television. Replacing something that’s perceived as a negative habit or behavior with one that’s considered positive can provide the motivation necessary to kick a bad habit. Figure out what’s triggering your bad habit. Another way to kick a bad habit is to understand what triggers it. Such an understanding can help people develop healthier reactions to the triggers, ultimately eliminating the bad habit. For example, if stress at the office compels you to smoke a cigarette, you can prepare healthier ways to respond to that stress, such as walking around the office, than heading outside to smoke a cigarette. When necessary, speak to a psychologist about identifying triggers if

you cannot identify them on your own. Educate yourself. Adults with especially harmful bad habits, such as excessive alcohol consumption or smoking, may find all the motivation they need to change their behaviors by educating themselves. For instance, smokers may be surprised to learn that, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 10 times as many American citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States combined. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism notes that excessive alcohol consumption over a long period of time can cause cardiomyopathy, arrythmia, stroke, and high blood pressure. People may recognize that smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are bad for them, but learning just how bad might provide the spark they need to change their ways. Breaking bad habits is seldom easy. But adults who commit to changing their ways can overcome even the worst of habits.

5 fun ways to get fit Taking a workout outdoors is one way to increase the enjoyment factor.

Health and Wellness Professionals Directory 2018 - 2019 levels,and much more. Still, certain people find it difficult to muster the motivation to get up and move. In 2013, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed data from more than 450,000 American adults ages 18 and older who were randomly polled across the 50 states. Participants were asked about aerobic physical activity outside of their jobs. The findings were eye-opening. Estimates indicated nearly 80 percent of American adults do not get the recommended amounts of exercise each week. People most likely to exercise, according to the CDC study, were between the ages of 18 and 24. Lack of time and inspiration may be to blame for disinterest in exercise. Boredom with routine and being unaware of alternative fitness regimens also may be contributing factors. Increasing the fun associated with workouts could lead to greater success in or outside of the gym.

choices around what worked for others; find things that work for you. Exercise physiologists at John Hopkins Weight Management Center say to start with an activity that you already enjoy, even if it’s aligned with the trend of the moment. Chances are you can find a class or make up a routine that works for you.

Music can improve performance during a workout and may actually take your mind off of strenuous or repetitive activity. Tunes also can be coordinated to the workout. Songs that feature lyrics such as run, punch, push, or groove can reinforce movements in the routine, offers the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Also, tailor songs to coordinate to the beats per minute of different activities. Strength activities and endurance activities can feature songs with higher BPMs.

You may be more inclined to workout if you do so outside. Activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, swimming, and cycling on natural courses can be inspiring and burn calories.

3. Exercise with friends or a group.

Making exercise fun motivates many people to embrace fitness and stick with their workout regimens.

Having other people around can make workouts more enjoyable, and that interaction may spur competition that can make you more inclined to stay the course. People who were in the competitive groups in a study of 800 graduate and professional students at the University of Pennsylvania went to 90 percent more classes than those who exercised independently or were not competitive. The results were published in the journal Preventative Medicine Reports. Competition can be a driving factor in efforts to exercise.

5. Try sports or another activity. Exercise regimens do not have to include running on a treadmill or lifting weights. All types of activities can work, and some may be more enjoyable to you than traditional exercises. Everything from martial arts to dance classes to volleyball can offer cardiovascular and musclebuilding benefits in a fun atmosphere.

Is micellar water worth the health and beauty hype?

Micellar water has changed how many people take care of their skin.

M

icellar water is an increasingly popular beauty trend that many are touting as a potential replacement for cleaning and moisturizing supplies. Those who are unfamiliar with micellar water may wonder how it can revamp their wellness routines. Chemistry at theroot of micelles The story behind micellar water begins with a cursory lesson in chemistry. Micelles are chemical structures that contain both hydrophilic and hydrophobic structures. Hydrophilic parts will mix in with water and hydrophobic repel water and are also lipophilic, meaning they like to absorb oils. Micelles form when there is an ideal temperature in the medium. In the case of micellar water, this is the water itself and

a certain concentration of electrolytes, referred to as the Critical Micelle Concentration. According to the beauty science resource Lab Muffin, a micelle is essentially a ballshaped cluster of a bunch of surfactant molecules. Surfactants are the important ingredients in soaps, detergents, and shampoos. They help make oils and makeups soluble in water. What do micelles do? Micellar water has the viscosity of water and it looks like water. But when feeling micellar water, people can tell that it feels softer and has a different texture than water. The idea is that water-loving â&#x20AC;&#x153;headâ&#x20AC;? of the micelle will adhere to the water and

But micellar water is gentler than many surfactants used in cleansers, so it will work without irritation or drying out the skin. That is why it is often marketed as a facial wash, moisturizer and makeup remover all in one. Micellar water is not new. In fact, it has been around and used for more than 100 years, first gaining momentum in France, where it was designed to help Parisians deal with the harsh water in France. When new soaps and lotions were developed through the years, micellar water fell out of favor in different areas of the world. However, it recently has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity and is attracting many new fans. According to dermatologist and Simple® brand skincare expert Dr. Debra Luftman, micellar water is safe for all skin types and is designed to be used without having to wash off the product afterward. It may not work well on waterproof mascara or other stubborn eye makeup, and people with oily skin may find it isn’t thorough at removing all oil. Micelle tails can only hold on to so much grime; therefore, it may take a few fresh passes to get skin extra clean. Earlier incarnations of micellar water were only available in France, but manufacturers elsewhere have jumped on the craze. Micellar water can now be found in many retail shops as well as online.

What is activated charcoal?

H

ealth-conscious consumers may be hearing more about activated charcoal and its wide range of uses. Activated charcoal, also known as activated carbon, is a form of carbon processed to have small pores that increase surface area adsorption. Simply Supplements says adsorption involves the adhesion of atoms, molecules and ions onto the surface of a larger absorbent. Absorption would force those molecules to permanently dissolve into the entirety of the absorbent, not just the surface. Healthline notes that activated charcoal is typically made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, coal, olive pits, or sawdust. The “activation” occurs by heating these materials at high temperatures to make them more porous. Historians believe that activated charcoal has been used for medicinal purposes since the 19th century. While activated charcoal is still being studied, it has been used as a treatment for acute poisoning. Some people rely on it as a hangover remedy, but there is no evidence to support its efficacy in such instances. Activated charcoal is available in capsules or tablets to treat digestive gas problems and is increasingly used in toothpaste to whiten teeth and reduce stains. Individuals are advised to carefully research activated charcoal and discuss its purported health benefits with their physicians before including it in their health regimens.

Tips to improve memory

F

orgetfulness can affect anyone. For example, few, if any, adults can say they have not experienced moments when they could not find their keys. And once the keys are found, people move on without giving much thought to why they did not immediately remember where they left their keys. Isolated incidents where people cannot recall where they placed their car keys or other minor bouts with forgetfulness do not occur by accident. In fact, the Harvard Medical School notes that they are likely byproducts of age-related changes in thinking skills. When people reach their 50s, chemical and structural changes in the brain may begin to occur, and these changes can affect a person’s ability to process memories.

A diet that includes lots of vegetables and fish can help men and women reduce their risk for cognitive decline.

Father Time may be a formidable foe, but people can take steps to give their memories a boost as they get older. Embrace recognition instead of trusting recall. Dr. Joel Salinas, a neurologist who specializes in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital, notes that human beings are better at recognition than recall. That means people are more likely to remember something they read, such as a note or a list, than something they’re simply told. Recognize the value of repetition. The Harvard Medical School notes that people might be more inclined to remember what they hear if they repeat it out loud. Names and addresses might be more easily remembered after they’re repeated out loud because repetition increases the

When studying for exams, many students repeat important points to themselves time and again, and that same approach can be applied by adults who are trying to improve their memories. Eat a healthy diet. A study published in 2015 in the journal Neurology found that people who eat healthy diets with lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and fish and little alcohol and red meat may be less likely to experience declines in their memory and thinking skills. Authored by Andrew Smyth of McMaster University in Ontario and the National University of Ireland in Galway, the study following more than 27,000 people in 40 countries for an average of roughly five years. All participants were 55 and older and had diabetes or a history of heart disease, stroke or peripheral artery disease. Those who ate the healthiest diets were 24 percent less likely to experience cognitive decline than people with the least healthy diets. Break things down. Breaking things down into small chunks also can help improve memory. If tasked with remembering something extensive, such as a speech, focus on a single sentence at a time, only moving on to the next sentence when you’re confident you have successfully committed the preceding sentence to memory. Periodic memory lapses are often nothing to worry about. But men and women concerned about maintaining their memories can employ various strategies to do just that.

orking out close to bedtime may not be as detrimental to sleep as previously thought. In fact, some sleep experts are now saying that workout sessions — including those that occur late in the day — can be mutually beneficial for improving sleep duration and quality. In the past, researchers believed that exercise in the evening could increase heart rate, raise core body temperature and send stimulating hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, through the body, which could adversely affect sleep. However, recent findings say it’s not all that troublesome. A study in the Journal of Sleep Research found that people who exercised vigorously for 35 minutes before bed slept as well as they did on nights when they did not exercise. The National Sleep Foundation’s 2013 Sleep in America poll also showed that people who exercised reported they snoozed better than those who didn’t work out, and exercising closer to bedtime did not affect sleep quality. Dr. Stuart Quan, a professor of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School, says the best workout time generally varies from person to person. Those who want to exercise at night can see how it impacts their sleep. If no problems occur, then nighttime workouts can continue. It’s also notable to point out that adrenaline and cortisol only take an hour to regulate and return to normal levels after vigorous activity. So slipping under the sheets an hour or two after a workout may be the best advice for nocturnal fitness fans.

Health and Wellness Professionals Directory 2018 - 2019 Brain: Alcohol can affect how the brain looks and works, interfering with its communication pathways and potentially disrupting one’s mood and behavior. In addition, alcohol can affect a person’s ability to think clearly and adversely affect coordination. Heart: Heart problems associated with longtime excessive alcohol consumption or even too much alcohol on a single occasion include cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle that compromises its ability to pump blood to the rest of the body. Irregular heart beat, stroke and high blood pressure are some additional heart conditions that can result from excessive alcohol consumption. Pancreas: The pancreas is a gland located in the abdomen that, among other things, aids in the digestive

17

process. The NIAAA notes that alcohol causes the pancreas to produce toxic substances that can lead to pancreatitis. An inflammation and swelling of blood vessels in the pancreas, pancreatitis can prevent proper digestion and produce pain in the upper abdomen that can spread to the back as well.

Liver: Cirrhosis, a chronic disease of the liver that’s often linked to alcoholism, may be the most widely known liver disease associated with alcohol. However, additional diseases, including alcoholic hepatitis, fibrosis and steatosis also may result from heavy drinking. Roughly 35 percent of long-term drinkers develop alcoholic hepatitis, the presence of which may require liver transplants if other courses of treatment, such as dietary changes and quitting alcohol, are ineffective. Fibrosis refers to scar tissue in the liver, while the

Cleveland Clinic notes that steatosis, or fatty liver, that occurs after acute alcohol ingestion is generally reversible with abstinence.

Immune system: Excessive alcohol consumption weakens the immune system, leaving acute and chronic heavy drinkers vulnerable to disease. Single occasion heavy drinkers may find their ability to defend themselves against infection is weakened for up to 24 hours after getting drunk. Chronic heavy drinkers are more susceptible to diseases such as pneumonia and tuberculosis than people who drink in moderation or not at all. Cancer: Excessive alcohol consumption also has been linked to a host of cancers, including cancers of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breast.

Reduce exposure to harmful VOCs at home

Health and Wellness Professionals Directory 2018 - 2019

• Rely on natural ventilation when using products that have strong odors or are suspected of emitting VOCs. This can be as easy as opening windows and doors or doing work outside. • Use a shed rather than an attached garage to store gas cans, pesticides, paint thinners, and other odoriferous materials away from the home. Contact the municipal waste department to learn how to properly dispose of leftover chemical products. • Rethink flooring materials to include carpeting that is low VOC or alternatives such as washable rugs or hard flooring.

V

• Don’t forget to fill a home with plenty of live plants. A study from researchers at NASA found that certain indoor plants are effective at naturally purifying air.

VOCs are particularly troubling because their concentrations are consistently up to 10 times higher indoors than outdoors. Those who spend time inside of homes and businesses may be at risk from concentrated exposure to VOCs.

• Exercise caution with dry-cleaned clothes. Perchloroethylene is a chemical most widely used in dry cleaning. Air out dry-cleaned clothes before wearing them, particularly if they have strong chemical odors.

Notable items that produce VOCs include treated woods, carpeting, building materials, paints, waxes, fabrics, and varnishes. Since people are constantly breathing in air, and whatever is circulating within it, it’s important for individuals to be conscious of these common offenders.

Volatile organic compounds can be excreted through various items. Individuals who educate themselves can greatly reduce their exposure to these harmful compounds.

olatile organic compounds are emitted by a vast array of products. The Environmental Protection Agency warns that VOCs consist of gases discharged from solids or liquids that produce short- and long-term health effects.

VOCs can be dangerous because they may cause everything from minor symptoms of headaches, nausea and stuffy noses to more serious conditions like nervous system problems and kidney and liver damage. Some VOCs are known to cause cancer in humans, warns the EPA. To reduce exposure to VOCs, homeowners are advised to take the following steps. • Read product labels carefully for warnings against VOCs. Whenever possible, select products that do not emit VOCs. • Invest in alternative products, such as allnatural cleaning solutions. Many people find that common and safe items like vinegar, citrus oils and baking soda are as effective as chemical cleaners without the same harmful side effects. • Use an air purifier in conjunction with HVAC systems. Purchase an air purifier that specifically filters out odors and VOCs, which can help people with chemical sensitivities.

Identifying and understanding dehydration

D

ehydration is a simple condition to understand, but one that can lead to a host of complicated problems. Many people may be quick to associate dehydration with athletes, particularly those who exercise outdoors in warm climates. But dehydration can affect anyone at any time, which only highlights why men, women and even children should learn to identify signs of dehydration and what to do should it surface. What is dehydration? Dehydration happens when the loss of body fluids, namely water, exceeds the amount of fluids that is taken in. When a person is diagnosed as dehydrated, that typically means his or her body has lost so much fluid that is has begun to lose its ability to function normally. Who is vulnerable to dehydration? Anyone can suffer from dehydration, which can be especially dangerous to young children and older adults. The Mayo Clinic notes that older adults, who naturally have a lower volume of water in their bodies, may not feel thirsty until they are already dehydrated, so it’s important that aging men and women understand that thirst is not always the best indicator that they’re becoming dehydrated. Babies may become dehydrated when they get sick with an illness that causes vomiting and diarrhea. But even teens and otherwise healthy adults can suffer from dehydration. What are the symptoms of dehydration? Symptoms of dehydration vary with age. Parents of babies and young children should be on the lookout for signs of dehydrations, as infants and even toddlers may not be able to communicate that something is wrong. Signs of dehydration in infants and young children include dry mouth and tongue, a lack of tears when crying, sunken eyes and cheeks, and a sunken soft spot on the top of the skull. In addition, babies who produce no wet diapers for three hours may be suffering from dehydration. A sense of listlessness or irritability in infants and young children is another potential indicator of dehydration. Adults who experience extreme thirst may be suffering from dehydration. Less frequent urination and a dark-colored urine when going to the bathroom also is symptomatic of dehydration. Fatigue, dizziness and confusion are some additional indicators of dehydration in adults.

Can dehydration be prevented? Dehydration can affect anyone, but there are ways to prevent it, even among those people who are especially susceptible to dehydration, such as children and older adults. Parents of babies who are vomiting or experiencing diarrhea should speak with their pediatricians and discuss the ways to prevent such children from becoming dehydrated. Breastfeeding more frequently and giving the baby a medicine such as Pedialyte® can prevent the occurrence of dehydration in babies who are sick. The Mayo Clinic recommends parents

take a proactive approach to preventing dehydration in young children, meaning they should not wait until dehydration occurs or symptoms of dehydration present themselves before taking action. Adults who want to prevent dehydration should drink plenty of fluids and include lots of fruits and vegetables in their diets. Such foods contain lots of water and can help the body avoid becoming dehydrated. The Mayo Clinic recommends that athletes begin hydrating the day before engaging in strenuous exercise. A telltale sign of a well-hydrated body is clear, diluted urine. Athletes should replenish their fluids during exercise and continue doing so even after they finish working out or competing.

Again, advice varies on turning the piercing. Some professionals say to leave it alone, while others advise turning the earring when cleaning it — and only when it is wet. The idea is not to disturb the scabbing and avoid irritating the wound as much as possible. Let it be With the excitement of a new piercing, one may be tempted to switch jewelry prematurely. Leave well enough alone and do not change the stud or loop until advised by the piercing professional. Try to use high-quality jewelry for as long as possible afterward to reduce irritation.
