From the common cold to a sore throat, occasional break-outs, period cramps, and everything else in between…who goes to the doctor for these issues! If that’s you, and you’re always on the lookout for some great home remedies, don’t stop reading. Our InspiHER community has shared some health tips that will not only reduce your doctor visits but also give you quick and instant relief.
Here are some tips for a healthy and happy future.
Feel low during your periods every month, with unbearable cramps and mood swings? Sampada D from the Student Experience team believes that a hot water bag on the lower abdomen will help you reduce the cramps. Eating chocolates and keeping yourself busy can help you reduce period cramps, says Kumkum Singh from the BDA team. Stop counting those calories and take that big bite of chocolate to make yourself feel better.
If you are one of those who feel like you don’t drink enough water, even after knowing water keeps your skin and body hydrated, Garima Kapoor, Inside Sales (UPSC) has the best tip for you. “Don’t forget that you and your health are the two most important things in this world. Put a reminder on your phone with a note ‘Hey, Beautiful! Please drink a glass of water’ the same way you had put reminders for meeting your work deadlines.” Well well, Garima’s tip has certainly helped US increase our water intake! When are YOU setting that reminder?
Finishing your dinner before 8:30 PM will help your body get enough time to digest your meal before hitting the bed, says Sampada D from the Student Experience team. Of course, you’ll wake up early too! How about spending some time basking in the sun early in the morning? “Vitamin D is important for bone health. Without vitamins, our body is not able to metabolize calcium. Make sure you sunbathe early in the morning for at least 10 minutes and your body will do the rest,” says Sampada. Karthi M (Academics) vouches for it too. Basking in the sunlight will help energize our bodies and she believes we’ll feel more energetic and happy in a week’s time! We’re definitely trying this routine for a happier tomorrow. What about you?
We saved the best one for the last. If you love munching on junk food, no need to feel guilty. Who doesn’t! But let’s try to break this habit together and replace some junk food with healthier ingredients. Karthi M has shared a recipe if you are craving a yummy snack – “Take a cup of pre-roasted makhana(fox nuts), add some jaggery powder, cumin powder, black salt, asafoetida, and a pinch of salt.” That’s all? That was easy! Karthi also says that it’s a great alternative to popcorn. (Give us a moment while we order some makhana). Sampada too has shared some benefits of almonds and dates: “Consuming four almonds and two dates daily, fires up the body’s metabolism and stabilizes blood sugar.”
