If you’ve ever had a leg cramp, you know just how painful it can be. Sure, the pain doesn’t typically last very long, but while it does you’ll find yourself searching for fast and effective relief.

Fortunately, there are several ways to stop leg cramps before they start. With the right approach, you may never again have to deal with pain and discomfort caused by this ailment.

Here are three things you should be doing:

·      Stay hydrated: You’re more likely to suffer from leg cramps – as well as those in other parts of your body – when you’re dehydrated. Make sure you’re drinking enough water, even if you don’t plan on exercising.

·      Change your diet: More specifically, eat foods that are high in calcium, magnesium, and vitamins. This can go a long way in helping you proactively prevent leg cramps.

·      Stretch before and after exercise: Yes, it takes a few minutes to get in a good stretch, but it’s one of the best ways to prevent cramps.

As you can see, there are easy things you can do to stop leg cramps before they start. If you implement these three techniques in your daily life, you won’t find yourself dealing with leg cramps nearly as often (if at all).

Everyone experiences some level of stress every now and again. It can come from your job. It can come from your personal life. It can come from your finances.

As you know, too much stress is a bad thing. Not only can it alter your mood, but it can take a nasty toll on your physical well-being. Furthermore, the hidden impact of stress is very real.

Here are a few ways stress can drag you down, often without you noticing it:

·      Memory loss. Are you missing important appointments? Are you forgetting key points from conversations you just had? Stress can impact your memory, thus making it more difficult to live your day-to-day life.

·      Mood swings. You can blame mood swings on a lot of things, but stress should be at the top of the list. Even if you’re a relatively calm and friendly person, too much stress can cause you to lash out. Rapid mood swings can impact you and the people in your life, so you shouldn’t wait to take action.

·      Focusing too much time and energy on the small stuff. The more stressed you become the more likely you are to worry about every little thing that goes wrong. From a spilled glass of milk to a traffic jam, every small problem is magnified. Conversely, you add more stress to your plate, this making it next to impossible to break the cycle.

Stress can negatively impact your life in a number of ways. If this is happening to you, it’s time to take action.

Do you often suffer from dry eyes during the cold winter months? Have you come to find that the advice of your doctor has yet to produce the results you’re hoping for?

If so, it’s time to try out a few home remedies. You never know when you’ll find something that brings you the relief you deserve.

·      Blink more often. It sounds too simple, but the more you blink the better your eyes will feel. This is particularly important if you spend many hours each day staring at a computer screen.

·      Wash away the crust. Every morning when you wake up, wash those crusty eyelashes to keep inflammation under control. This can go a long way in keeping your eyes moist.

·      Use a warm compress. Take a few minutes each day to lay a clean, warm washcloth on your eyes. It only takes five minutes to loosen up clogged oils in your glands. Subsequently, your eyes will feel better and you’re able to produce the moisture required to maintain your comfort.

·      Drink more. Your body needs water to stay healthy. This is definitely true when it comes to your eyes. Make it a habit to drink as much water as possible throughout the day. This can do wonders for your eyes.

So, there you have it. If dry eyes are bothering you, experiment with one or more of these home remedies. You may come to find instant relief!

As one of our local readers, we know that your body faces many changes during the cold winter months. For example, you may soon come to find that the air in your home is entirely too dry.

While this doesn’t sound like a big deal at first, it has a way of taking its toll on your health over the long run. Here are some of the many ways low humidity can impact you in the months to come:

·      Dry, itchy eyes: Don’t assume that dry, itchy eyes only come about with spring and fall allergies. Low humidity can dry out your eyes, causing itching, burning, and a variety of other side effects.

·      Higher risk of getting sick: Did you know that many viruses live longer in low humidity environments? This is a major problem during the winter months, when cold and flu viruses (among others) are a concern.

·      Dry, itchy, and scaly skin. It’s often called “winter itch” and is caused by nothing more than a lack of moisture in your skin. For some people, this is a serious problem that goes well beyond the surface of the skin. It can result in cracking and burning, thus making it difficult to maintain your appearance and overall level of comfort.

If you’re concerned about dry air impacting your health this winter, it’s time to look into a humidifier for your home. It’s the quickest way to solve this potential problem.

Strep throat is a major concern for many people during the winter months, especially those who are susceptible to this particular ailment.

While your doctor can help you better understand your treatment options, it doesn’t mean you’ll agree with them. For example, you may not be interested in pumping your body full of antibiotics with the hope of a fast recovery.

Here are some of the best “lifestyle remedies” for strep throat:

·      Get more rest: Don’t push your body to the limit as you’re fighting an infection. Instead, get as much rest as possible, as this allows you to make a faster recovery.

·      Drink more water: Even if it hurts, you need to drink more water as to prevent dehydration and keep your throat lubricated.

·      Watch what you eat: It’s best to stick to easy to swallows foods, with soup, apple sauce, and soft fruit among the best.

·      Gargle with salt water: Doing this a few times per day can relieve your pain and discomfort.

·      Fire up your humidifier: When you add moisture to the air, you’re less likely to dry out. Even if it doesn’t speed up the recovery, it helps with your comfort level.

If your doctor diagnoses you with strep throat, don’t hesitate to immediately do these things.
