6 Healthy Habits For The Entire Family

By Collins Nwokolo → Sunday, 21 January 2018

As fathers and mothers we are largely responsible for the health of our family members, including children, spouses and aging parents. Since cardiovascular health is of great concern, introducing heart-healthy habits into your family life is vital. Here is how it can be done.



Healthy Habits For The Entire Family

1. Kick off bad habits
Parents always set a model for healthy or unhealthy behavior. Children in their turn learn a lot from watching and imitating the parents. For example, it is proven that children whose parents smoke are twice as likely to start smoking. Moreover, the longer one of the parents or both of them smoke, the more likely their children will, too. Meantime, many studies detail the evidence that smoking is a leading cause of coronary artery disease.


2. Cut back on watching TV or sitting in front of computer
While watching a family movie is a great way to relax, it’s important to monitor the time your family members spend on screens.  Studies have shown that people who averaged more than 2 hours sitting in front of TV or computers had double risk of developing heart attack and other cardiovascular events, compared to those who allocated less than 2 hours on daily screen time. Therefore, maintain limits on ‘screen time’ and encourage physical activities for recreation instead.

3. Don’t stress out
Although your family members may not tell you that they are stressed, excessive pressure to perform academically, financially or socially can cause clinical depression. And as it is pointed out by the AHA, 1 in 3 people with depression are likely to suffer myocardial infarction. So, encourage your family members to discuss their concerns openly and seek help when needed. Also learn to relax and kick back from time to time, getting your family members to do the same.

Food choices play a major role in heart disease prevention due to their impact on body weight and cholesterol levels. Avoid saturated fats from junk and processed foods like pastries, cookies, hamburgers as well as red meats, otherwise your cholesterol levels will rocket up resulting in atherosclerosis vs. Include fresh fruits and greens, fish, seafood and nuts into the diet and it’ll be the best reference to heart-friendly eating.




Healthy Habits For The Entire Family

5. Avoid heavy meals
Apart from diet choices, serving size can affect heart health too.  After eating a meal, the levels of the hormone epinephrine rise. This promotes high blood pressure and fast heart rate. Eating habits are best cultivated at an early age. Children under 3 will stop eating on their own when they are full. But after the age of 3, the more is put on their plate, the more they will eat. Therefore, give your kids child-size portions and try to habituate your family to eating small and light meals through the day, instead of overeating during large meals.
Teach your children about feelings of fullness. When you are asked for another helping, instead of saying ‘You have had enough’, say something like ‘You must be really hungry tonight’. This will raise awareness of your child’s feelings.
You can effectively influence your child’s healthy eating behavior by avoiding certain situations and talking in a positive way. For example, instead of saying ‘No’ to your child’s request for cookies, just don’t bring cookies home.  It is easier to create healthy environment at home where there’s limited access to unhealthy foods and unrestricted access to healthy ones instead.

Healthy Habits For The Entire Family

6. Be a role model
Remember, healthy changes cannot be forced, but can be inspired. First adopt healthy living habits in your own life and this will gradually inspire others to follow suit. When you’re determined and persistent, your family will model your behavior.

professor of psychology at Rutgers University in
New Brunswick, advised men to see female doctors, she said: "Men overwhelmingly prefer to see male doctors, they consider them more qualified.

The Insider’s Guide: Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer

By Collins Nwokolo → Saturday, 13 January 2018
First and foremost let me tell you that I am a Personal Trainer, but this post will provide an insightful, unbiased opinion, or better put, pure facts on the advantages and disadvantages of hiring a Personal Trainer.
Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer


So if you are looking to get in shape but you really don’t know where to start, this article will go right down your alley. Maybe you’ve never workout before or maybe you can’t afford to pay for a trainer or maybe you simply don’t have the time to go to the gym.
Well, that’s why I’m writing this, to help you out. You basically have 3 options, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Let’s look at each one and then you can decide on your own which is better for you personally.



Option #1 Train at home
Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer


This option is great for people who don’t have the time to commute to the gym 3 or 4 times a week. So it’s definitely a time saver.
You can also look at it as a money saving option because you don’t need to pay for a gym membership or for a Personal Trainer. But you will need to invest in some equipment or at least in a home workout program to follow.
You can even go as far as building your own little home gym if you are serious about working out. That will definitely be a big one-time investment, but it will pay off in the long run. Additionally, you also need to have the space to install everything.


Pros of training at home
As mentioned above, the biggest advantage of training at home is comfort. You don’t need to commute, get stuck in traffic or pay monthly for a membership.
On top of that, you have available plenty of workout programs, many of them including videos which explain everything really well, which you can use to get you started. They are not as good as getting hands-on advice from someone who has been training for a while, but they will do.
Also, when you work out from home, if you are doing plenty of bodyweight training you can basically workout anywhere. So you could be traveling and still stick to your training routine without worrying about finding a gym.
When you train at home you don’t have to wait in line for the bench press or any other machine and you don’t need to worry about hygiene or distractions.
There are some drawbacks though.


Cons of training at home
The main downside of training at home is that you will never have someone to teach you the moves, to motivate you or to guide you through your workouts. You are on your own. You need to be a self-taught individual and you need to find the inner motivation that will keep you going when the workouts start to feel harder.
If you are a complete beginner, this is a major drawback because it will take you a long time to work on your form or to design a workout routine which is optimal or your goals, whatever they may be.
So, if you do not know much about training I would recommend at least getting to a gym where you can find a training partner or even a personal trainer to get you started on everything. On top of that, I personally find that public gyms have a different atmosphere which is more motivating.



Option #2 Get a gym membership
Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer

Your second option would be to get a gym membership. And this is what most people do.
They go out to a gym which is close enough to either their home or their office and they get a monthly or yearly membership which gets them access to the gym. This is how I started training and it worked out great for me.


ALSO READ: How To Build A Garage Gym And Achieve Your Fitness Goals


Pros of getting a gym membership
What I like about public gym is that you get access to tons of equipment and machines that are worth hundreds thousands of dollars. You can never have all that in your home gym. So you can perform any exercise or movement you can think off, there are no limitations. You also get access to extra facilities such as a sauna, a pool or Jacuzzi.
But the biggest advantage is that you get to be around people from whom you can learn a lot. You can always find someone to train with, someone to get an advice from or someone to spot you. On top of that, I find a public gym to be more motivating and you will probably be more likely to stick with your training than if you would work out from home.


Cons of getting a gym membership
Your local gym might not always be that close by. Sometimes it can take 30 minutes ride to get there, especially if you are living in a big and crowded city. So if you don’t have that much time on hand, that might be an issue.
Another downside is that public gyms, the bigger ones mainly, can get really crowded sometimes, especially in the afternoon when everybody gets off from work or from school. So if you can, try to go to the gym early in the morning.
Some people feel embarrassed in a public gym, which would negatively affect their workouts. If that’s you maybe you would be better off with training at home or at a smaller gym.
Moreover, the cost of a monthly gym membership can add up over time, so you will probably end up spending more than you would’ve built your own home gym.



Option #3 Hiring a Personal Trainer
Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer

Lastly but not least, you have the option of getting yourself a Personal Trainer.
This is a great option if you lack knowledge. You simply don’t have any idea what exercises you need to be doing or how to diet and you don’t have the time to do a research and figure out what to do. By hiring a personal trainer you don’t need to worry about any of that.


SEE ALSO: What are Fitness Supplements- Are they bad for you?

Pros of hiring a Personal Trainer
The biggest downside of getting yourself a personal trainer is that you instantly get access to years and years of knowledge and experience right off the bat. This means you will start doing all the right exercises right from day one.
That’s extremely important. As a beginner, you will see most of your progress in your first 6 months to 1 year after you started training. So if you are following a training routine which is optimal for you, your progress will be even better.
Most personal trainers will also provide you with a meal plan to support your training plan and your goals. They can do on the fly changes to your routine based on how you are doing and they are always there to keep you motivated.
You will be less likely to skip a training day when you know there’s someone there waiting for you and hold you accountable for it.
And lastly but not least, the risks of injuring yourself by doing something stupid in the gym is so much smaller when you have someone with more experience watching your back.


Cons of hiring a Personal Trainer
The biggest drawback is obviously the cost. Personal Trainers are not cheap and if you add to it the cost if the gym membership in can add up to quite a substantial amount each month.
Another disadvantage may be the lack of knowledge and experience. You don’t want to assume right from the start that all personal trainers are super experienced and will know exactly what works best for you. So you might end up spending a ton of money on a trainer which will not get you the results you are after.
That’s why I always recommend hiring personal trainers that your friends recommend or trainers that have proven records of their work.


Do You Really Need a Personal Trainer

Over to you

Remember that there’s no right or wrong choice here. Whether you decide to work out from the comfort of your own home, get a gym membership or get a personal trainer, if you make a thoughtful choice you can’t go wrong.
Just pick the one which fits you best at this time. As a complete beginner, you want to either find a training partner or hire a personal trainer to guide you. As you become more experienced you should be fine working out on your own, either at home or at a local gym.
