Health & Fitness

Health and fitness is achieved through proper nutrition, physical activity, and sufficient rest. It is a measure of the body's ability to function effectively in work, to be healthy, and to resist diseases.

Staying healthy

All adults should avoid inactivity to promote good health mentally and physically.

For substantial health benefits, adults should participate in at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Aerobic activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.

For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Additional health benefits are gained by engaging in physical activity beyond this amount.

Adults should also do muscle-strengthening activities that are moderate or high intensity and involve all major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week, as these activities provide additional health benefits.

Although caffeine use may be safe for adults and may even provide health benefits in many people, excessive caffeine consumption can also pose health problems. No more than a maximum of 400 mg of caffeine a day is recommended as a dietary intake guideline. That is the same amount pr...

For females, the most common cause of urine incontinence aggravated by cough is due to weak pelvic floor muscles (commonly related to pregnancy and childbirth). We also call it stress urinary incontinence. Many women restrict their activities due to this. There are other causes o...

Hi It is common for elderly to pass urine more frequent at night than the daytime. It is called Nocturia. First of all, we will need to exclude causes such as urinary tract infection, so your mum needs to see a specialist for assessment. If all red flags excluded, we can a...

Wounds heal best in a sterile moisture-controlled environment as the new skin cells (keratinocytes) need to migrate across a healthy wound bed during the healing process. In this respect, gauze dressings are considered non-ideal as the gauze dries up the wound and gets stuck to the ...
