Thyroid disorders usually develop in the body, when there is a problem in the thyroid gland and it cannot produce the hormones that are required to regulate the metabolism. Thyroid problems can lead to one of the two conditions, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in the blood and hyperthyroidism indicates the opposite, i.e., an excessive supply of the thyroid hormones in the body.
The symptoms and problems associated with thyroid problems include fatigue, weight fluctuations, water retention, irregular sleeping patterns, mood swings as well as pain in the joints and muscles. People usually adopt various treatment options, to alleviate this condition. Several health experts and even doctors recommend Yoga for thyroid conditions, as it stimulates the thyroid gland and balances the metabolism. Read More
Is it better to exercise in the morning, or later in the day?
Let your circadian rhythms be your guide. In the afternoon or early evening, your core temperature is warmer. A warm core makes your muscles and joints more supple, which helps you avoid strains and sprains. That makes afternoon or early evening ideal for exercises that tap your muscles, like strength training, stretching, and interval workouts.
Mornings are good too!
On the other hand, if endurance activities are more your type —long brisk walks or bike rides — morning may be better. Your body’s core is cooler early in the day, which can make endurance activities seem less tiring. And there is less risk of overheating. But a good warm-up will be key, since your muscles are likely to be stiffer in the mornings.
Tune up your muscles, lungs, and heart with these well-timed workouts:
Mornings: Get energised. Walk your way to a slimmer you — in your own home!
After-noons: Muscle up your midday. It can be quick and easy. Then, get flexible with a chi-gong exercise.
Evenings: Stretch yourself to sleep. It really helps.
