You will not find many cost-effective and efficient suggestions for health and wellness than the simple “jog for your health” mantra. Believe it or not, something as economical, simple, and practical as jogging can pave the way to long-term health, wellness, and a fit lifestyle. If you are open to embracing a new lifestyle centered on jogging, here are things that you need to know so you can jog for your health.
Though jogging is a fairly simple activity, that doesn’t mean you can just go out and jog for a few weeks and expect to lose an enormous amount of weight. There are considerations you have to keep in mind in order to make your jogging workouts effective.
Your current fitness level determines whether or not you can quickly ease into jogging. If you haven’t done anything strenuous for a long time, start with walking sessions to get your body acclimated to working out again. Start off slow and slowly increase your speed every few days. After 2 or 3 weeks, you should be ready for slow jogs of 30 to 45 minutes in duration at a very easy pace.
Massage may be the oldest and simplest form of medical care for wellness. Egyptian tomb paintings show people being massaged. Massage has been practiced continually since ancient times in Eastern cultures. It was one of the principal methods of relieving pain for Greek and Roman physicians. Julius Caesar was said to have been given a daily massage to treat neuralgia (nerve pain). In the 5th Century B.C., the father of Western medicine, Hippocrates wrote in the book The Physician Must Be Experienced In Many Things, “but assuredly in rubbing… for rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that is too rigid.”
People are gaining in the understanding that massage can relieve disease as well as aid in relaxation. As more people learn about the benefits of massage and it’s relation to disease, the more acceptable it will become.
Massage is now used in intensive care units, for children, elderly people, babies in incubators, and patients with cancer, AIDS, heart attacks, or strokes. Most American hospices have some kind of bodywork therapy available, and it is frequently offered in health centers, drug treatment clinics, and pain clinics.
For pre-massage session relaxation of your muscles, three of the major muscles to concentrate on are:
- Muscles of the eyes
- Muscles of the jaw and throat
- Muscles of the heart and chest
There is nothing like relaxing ones self to be taken from you and experiencing a beautiful lomilomi massage or take a walk on the wild side to completely escape your stressed world with a fantasy massage to take you completely out of your mind by a professional expert in muscle relation in a non stressful way.
