Listening To My Body–Top 5 tips to improve the health

I have been under the weather lately, not just a couple of days, but a longer period than that. It’s times like these when the body issues distress calls in the form of flu, cold, headaches, body aches, that jolts me into questioning whether I have been paying attention to my body and how I have been treating it.

I am not an advocate for taking medicine. I have not taken any antibiotics in years. If I have a cold or a flu, I usually tell the doctor I want no medicine as such medicines only suppress the symptoms but do not cure the illness. I particularly detest the painkiller ads on TV, where you see the guy suffering from back pain and taking a painkiller, only to be encouraged to go back to his back breaking work. That’s equivalent to giving some throat lozenges to a smoker with smoker’s cough, to mask the itch, so that the smoker can continue smoking. This is so morally wrong.

The point is, everyone has to listen to their own bodies, and find time to make things right, rather than to take quick fix solutions. Question yourselves, are you working too hard, too long, not exercising enough, always feeling stressed?

Here are my top 5 tips to give the body a break, listen to it for once and regain your health and vitality.

Meditation / Enjoy a calm and peaceful surrounding

We live very stressful lives in Singapore, often having to meet tight deadline after deadline. This is not something that you should accept as the norm.  People often forget this when they seek out the highest paying jobs, which often comes with greater stress. Know that this takes a toll on health and has an actual impact to your pocket when the medical bills start racking up. My advise to mitigate this stress, is to take some time out to enjoy some peace and solitude. Meditate if you can. Even going for spas or chilling out at a cafe need not be considered just mere luxury, but actually beneficial to health. But if money is an issue, at least find a quiet park or take a stroll around some reservoir. Even de-cluttering your room and decorating it with some calming furniture helps.

Singtel Easy Mobile Plan – Win a 2 year plan worth $1,560!

Have you checked out the new Singtel Easy Mobile plan already? If you didn’t already know about it, you can read all about it here. I know, it all sounds a little strange at the beginning. After having lived with fixed plans for so many years, why would anyone feel the need to tweak their plans? What on earth is Tweaking anyway?

But here’s the beauty, you DON’T have to tweak the plans if you don’t want. But you HAVE the flexibility in built into the plan, such that should the need arise one day, you can!

And that’s what happened to me last month! I usually need very little call time and I spend most of my phone time whatsapping, instagramming or surfing the internet. But last month, my phone at home decided to go nuts! Instead of having to rush out to get a new home phone, I simply tweaked my plan to give me more call time. Easy peasy.

Now to get you started, how about a chance to win a 2-year Singtel Easy Mobile L plan worth $65 x 24 = $1,560??????? Simply visit this link here by 30 September 2014 and submit your ideas on how to make life easier!

Singtel Easy Mobile – Substitute more data for less calls!

*Sponsored Review*

Hey people, did you know there is a new phone plan by Singtel called Singtel Easy Mobile that allows you the flexibility of tweaking your plan to suit your phone use habits? If you are a heavy data user, you can tweak your plan such that you get more data in exchange for less local call time or less local SMSes!

OK this diagram above shows the type of standard data plans that we have been accustomed to for the the last few years. Eg, if you get the Value plan for $59.90, you get the standard 200 mins local calls, 900 free SMS and 3 GB of data.

HOWEVER, this is all about to change if you sign up for Singtel Easy Mobile!

There are 4 different price plans for you to choose from, each plan giving a certain number of units. For comparison’s sake, if you were to choose the L plan, you would get 16 units, which you can TWEAK as you like. If you’re like me, a heavy user of Instagram, Facebook and all sorts of other data zapping apps, you would want to TWEAK the plan such that you allocate the maximum number of units for the data.
