Whose benefit is personal hygiene for, yours or people around you? Well both but more yourself than others, personal hygiene isn’t just about the way you smell it has serious connotations for your health and well-being. The way you view yourself and feel about yourself is vital, you have an image of yourself and it affects the way you live life and interact with others. Go for a job interview knowing you have some body odor issues or acne and you will act differently than if you go in knowing you look and smell great and assuming that the interviewers are attracted to you: this confidence in itself is attractive and can help you get the job you want.

Personal hygiene is more than showering regularly though this is a part of it. Most people, in the US at least, shower once a day, some people shower less often but can get away with it, especially in winter. In summer and if you are a particularly sweaty person more than one shower a day may be important. It isn’t sweat that smells, it is the bacteria in your pores and the bacteria that forms in your sweat. If you have a sweat problem then make sure your skin is clean and your pores are clean, you may still sweat but it doesn’t mean you will smell. Of course don’t leave washing again any longer than you have to. Sweating constantly may actually stop the sweat from beginning to smell and it may be more your clothes than yourself that begins to smell so keep a spare shirt with you. Other personal hygiene problems such as blocked pores affect some people more than others and again you may just have to adapt, cleanse and tone everyday if you need to. Some personal hygiene problems are caused by excess hair in certain places so trim or wax.

Many people assume that money is the route to happiness, and it is ridiculous to claim it doesn’t play a part. Unfortunately people always want more and in the pursuit of money other important things get neglected. More and more people work long hours with little time off and little holiday in pursuit of careers, lifestyle goes out of the window and unfortunately so does health. What they don’t realize perhaps is that a good lifestyle long term can pay out dividends to them as a good lifestyle and good work life balance can make you more effective at work. A good nights sleep every night is important, regularly getting by on 7 or less hours sleep isn’t good for your health and your brain is one of the main things to be affected, this means that as you get further behind on sleep you brain is less able to do a good job, often jobs take longer and you get stuck in a vicious circle. The brain needs more than just sleep though, it can’t manage even if you do sleep 8 hours a night is you start and finish work twenty minutes after and before sleep. Your brain or rather you need emotional fulfillment including enjoyment, it isn’t frivolous to have fun it is important and something that can’t simply wait until you have a holiday or even the weekend. If you live a lifestyle where you work hard and don’t reward yourself you will start to lose sight of why you do it eventually and suffer burnout. If you burnout all your hard work could be lost while you recover. Exercise as well can easily be forgotten about while working long hours, even if you aren’t putting on weight your health suffers, you need to exercise to keep your heart, lungs and body overall healthy. Exercise is also a fantastic stress reliever, a little exercise even if just twenty minutes will release endorphins and make you feel a whole lot better: if you do nothing else between work and bed each day do twenty minutes of light exercise.

Advantages of regular exercise

Regular exercise can do much more for you than you realize, unless you are a doctor or personal trainer perhaps. But most people do assume that the point of exercise is to control weight, there is so much more to it than this though. Weight of course can be controlled through exercise, though a healthy diet is important as well. You could just eat less and not have excess weight despite not exercising but you wouldn’t be healthy. If you do have excess weight then exercise is the quickest way to get rid of it and if you do like your food then you can eat more if you exercise and still not put on weight, though some foods remain unhealthy.

Exercise is good for muscle tone and this is important, you may not want to be a body builder but you still need good muscles tone to look and feel healthy. Muscle tone allows you to keep going for longer during the day and to perform basic tasks such as walking to work or doing the shopping without difficulty. If you exercise you may build up a little extra muscle than you need but it will make things easier. A little muscle also fills out your skin and can make you more shapely. Of course you may like the idea, of building up some extra muscle that really shows as well but this is more to do with vanity than a basic healthy appearance.

The most important parts of your body to exercise aren’t your legs or your arms but in fact your heart and your lungs. Regular exercise is important to keep you in shape and make sure your heart which is a muscle stays strong, if you have poor lung capacity and a heart rarely exercised when you do call on them they may not work and leave you panting for breath and feeling light headed. As you get older a healthy heart is important to avoid directly related problems and to keep a good circulation that means white blood cells get around your body. Even as a younger person a good supply of oxygen and white blood cells mean you feel healthier overall and more oxygen is good for the brain.
