I found this healthy tip between my mom stuff ūüėÄ I guess it’s useful hmm and maybe makes us happy

i used to go sleep when i’m not happy but perhaps i’m gonna to try one of the list ūüėČ
1) Milk, preferably skim milk. Milk products are rich in tryptophan, an aminoacid our brain needs in order to make serotonin. Serotonin is a natural chemical that makes us happy and calm. Anti-depressants work in a similar way by conserving the brain’s serotonin. Milk also contains antioxidants, vitamin D, and vitamin B12 that help fight stress and aging. Have some skim milk every day. It’ll make you happier and the calcium content is good for your bones, too.

2) Chocolate. Who needs an excuse to eat chocolate? Not me. Chocolate contains anadamine, a brain chemical that helps brighten our mood. Scientists believe that other chemicals in chocolate cause anadamide to stay longer in the brain, thus enhancing its positive effect. The sugar in chocolate also boosts our levels of endorphins, another hormone that makes us happy. Don’t eat too much, though.

3) Rice, bread, noodles or pasta. Here‚Äôs our favorite comfort food ‚Äď carbohydrates. Don‚Äôt believe all those low-carb diets; they can actually make you crabby and gloomy. Eating carbohydrates can increase our serotonin levels, which has a calming effect. But to prevent sudden jumps in your blood sugar, choose healthier carbohydrates like brown rice, wheat bread, and vegetables. These good carbos are digested more slowly and make you fuller and possibly happier for a longer time.

4) Oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines. Oily fishes are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which can lift our mood. A study in Finland shows that people who eat more fish are less likely to be depressed. High doses of omega-3 may even be used to treat clinical depression. Most fish are also packed with vitamin B6 and B12, which are involved in the production of serotonin. As an alternative, you can try omega-3 supplements. Foods rich in omega-3 will not only make you happier, they’re good for the heart and brain, too.

5) Bananas. Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin. And we know that serotonin is a hormone that makes us cheerful. Bananas contain carbohydrates as well to boost our energy. Its high potassium content also prevents cramps and it’s good for exercising individuals. Experts believe that bananas are one of the world’s healthiest fruits. So take two bananas a day to keep the doctor away.

6) Broccoli. Broccoli is another amazing food that is full of vitamin Bs, the vitamin that helps fight stress. Studies show that folate or folic acid in broccoli can improve our temperament. Aside from lifting our spirits, broccoli is a potent anticancer food, proven in laboratory studies to inhibit cancer cells.

7) Spinach. Popeye’s favorite food! If you want to be so full of zest like Popeye, it pays to eat your spinach. Like broccoli, spinach is packed with folic acid, an important B vitamin for making serotonin, the body’s feel-good chemical. It’s about time we taught our kids about this incredible vegetable. Eat a cup of cooked spinach to obtain approximately 250 micrograms of folic acid. This amount is enough to make you feel like Popeye, full of vigor to face the day.

8) Blueberries. Blueberries are abundant in antioxidants and vitamin C, which are known stress-busters. Antioxidants help remove toxins (called free radicals) that circulate in our body. These free radicals damage our organs and cause us to age faster, that’s why we need to remove them. Blueberries are also loaded with fiber, which is good for digestion. Some studies show that blueberries and strawberries may prevent cancer by removing these destructive free radicals.

9) Beans and soybeans. Beans are packed with soluble fiber, folic acid, and omega-3 fats, the three ingredients known to improve our mood. Beans are also excellent sources of iron and calcium, which can increase our red blood cells, and are good for the bones. Moreover, soy contains genistein, a weak estrogen-like substance, which may prevent prostate and breast cancer. If you like soy milk and taho, they’re good for you, too.

10) Nuts.¬†Nuts are nutritional powerfoods, rich in protein, minerals (especially selenium), and omega-3 fats. Nuts also contain vitamin E, an antioxidant to fight stress. Locally, we have nilagang mani (boiled peanuts) and cashew nuts. Studies show that Brazil nuts are the number one source of the¬†mineralselenium. Seafood is another good source of selenium. Aside from lifting our mood, nuts are considered as ‚Äúbrain food‚ÄĚ because of their high content of omega-3 fats. Omega-3 helps improve the blood flow in our brain. (Students, take note.) Take an ounce of nuts every day. Don‚Äôt eat too much of them though, because nuts are salty and high in uric acid, which can be bad for those with high¬†blood¬†pressure¬†and gout.

11) Coffee. A study from Brazil shows that people who drink coffee with milk every day are less likely to suffer from depression. Caffeine is probably the world’s most popular mood-enhancing drug. But it has its pros and cons. Coffee boosts your energy levels, makes you feel more alert, and can improve your memory. A single cup of coffee with milk in the morning can jumpstart your day. However, too much coffee can also wreck your disposition, cause heart palpitation and anxiety, and make it difficult for you to sleep. A cup or two a day is okay. Small doses of caffeine can improve your mood but too much coffee can be bad for your health.

adrenaline *the power inside us *

I remember one of the biology lessons at high school , was about hormones inside human body .One of this hormones is adrenaline
Adrenaline is the power inside human body ..
Adrenaline is the hormone of fear and anger , it works immediately in this two cases , it’s function is giving¬† great energy to the muscles ,¬† Symptoms : increasing in the heart pulses ,¬† increasing in the breathing ,and expands vascular¬† to deliver enough blood and oxygen to the muscles . so we don‚Äôt feel pain at the same moment ..
our reaction is depending on what  we are on , case of anger  ( not recommended )
we should control our nerves¬† because¬† we may lose something , destroy, kill ect¬† that¬† is reflects negatively on our body or¬† life . in the case of fear (¬† fear and courage in some case ) because we may do something unexpected in the normally case may can’t do it , save someone , save ourself .also¬† when riding¬† a roller caster ..ect
and it happened to me one day, it’s scary attitude and i done something¬† unexpected
when i was child about 8 years old , i was sitting calm in my room. suddenly
someone screamed loudly ,  I  ran quickly toward the door without hesitance
opened¬† it then jumped of the stairs from the first one to the last ,although the stairs was big ,long and sharp made of marble.¬† Fortunately I didn’t get hurt or feel pain but i just can’t believe myself actually in¬† my normal case¬† can’t do it ..like a hero in cartoons ūüėÄ
anyway ,
I would like to take another point of view here . when we feel fear of failure, feel¬† fear of¬† keep on going¬†¬† to your aim¬†¬† and success seems a risk for some , you may win or lose and that makes us disappointment and give up ..perhaps someone take a risk and win then we regret¬† why we don’t do it
if success is a risk let’s do it motivate the power inside us I guess it works like an adrenaline, although of fear we get a courage to success ..Do not despair with life
if you done the thing you feel afraid¬† of¬† or the thing that others told you¬† can’t do it then¬†¬† you are a hero

Why do muscles ache after exercise!!!

When you exercise your muscles contract and produce an acid known as lactic acid acts like a ‘poison ‘ .the effect of this lactic acid is to make you tired , by making muscles feel tired .if the acid is removed from a tired muscle , it stops feeling tired and can go right to work again .
So feeling tired after muscular exercise is really the result of a kind of internal ‘ poisoning’ that goes on in the body .but the body needs this feeling of tiredness so that it will want to rest. During rest the joints of the body replace the supplies of lubricants they have used up .

Fact!!

*Swimming is a very good exercise as it uses lots of muscles without causing strain
*It’s important to stretch your muscles before and after exercise to distribute tha lactic acid
