Proper wound management

When you sustained a wound, keep it thoroughly clean to prevent germs from setting in. Dirt can infect the simplest wound or minor cut if not properly taken cared of.

  1. Wash wounds with soap and running water.
  2. It is best that you are being assisted if your wound is bleeding a lot; becomes red or swollen, or has pus (yellowish fluid) coming out of it; and gives pain.
  3. For accidental burn, pour cold water on the affected part, place it in cold water for at least five minutes.
  4. If you really hurt yourself badly, rush to the nearest health center or hospital to help you.

Learn to Live Well

There are instances when people forget that they need to focus on their health in order to ensure that they will be able to live well. More often than not, people just go through their lives without any form of relaxation in between. While the results may not be that obvious at first, it will take a toll on people after some time.

It is important that people focus more on the things that they do in between work because the things that people do when they are not working matters a lot not only for physical but emotional health as well. There are instances when people feel more depressed and sad about their current state because they never take any breaks. Living a little is possible if you know exactly what you can do to help yourself relax.

If you do not have any idea about the things that you can do in order to live a better life, why not take some tips from xango? You might be surprised with what you may find. You can also start by spending more time with your family and friends rather than spending all your time in front of your computer screen. This will make a huge difference in your everyday life.

Exercise addiction?

Just because they often see me watch workout videos on YouTube doesn’t mean I’m addicted to exercise or I have an exercise addiction. That’s what my daughter thinks of me. 😀 I admit I enjoy watching those heart-pounding workout videos. I even downloaded some of the fat-burning workout videos which I think are easy to follow. But despite following the daily exercise routine, I still take time to enjoy and relax. In fact, I still take an afternoon nap or watch TV while sitting on the sofa (wish it’s a foambymail bean bag chairs but it’s not). The good thing about my kids seeing me watch workout videos is that I somehow inculcate in them the importance of exercise to our health and well-being. Hopefully, they’d become health conscious as they grow up.
