Dehydration - You are thirstier then you think!

dehy1You may take water for granted, but your body doesn't. Two-thirds of a healthy human body is actually made up of water.

Skin - more than a covering

sk1The skin is the largest part of us, the largest organ we have, its surface being about 2m2, and it acts as a physical barrier.

We spend about 8 hours a day, 56 hours a week, 240 hours a month and 2,920 hours a year doing it. And by "IT" I mean good, old fashion sleep. We apparently spend one third of our lives doing nothing. But is sleep really doing nothing? It looks like it...our eyes are closed, our muscles are relaxed, our breathing is regular, and we do not respond to sound or light. If you take a look at what is happening inside of your brain, however, you will find quite a different situation - the brain is very active. You are doing something!

Depression

depression_1The word "depression" comes from the Latin word, "deprimere", meaning to press down or depress. Anyone who has ever suffered from depression recognizes the connection between the physical feeling of being pressed down and the emotional and spiritual sensation of feeling depleted of energy for living. It can be described in vivid terms such as "being in a deep, dark pit", "feeling hopeless about life", "total apathy for living" and "absolutely no enjoyment in life anymore".
