Ensure your Future with a Health Insurance

Sickness comes and goes like a thief in the night. If you are not careful, you will be caught in its vortex and you will be able to come out of it. That is why you have to ensure that you have supporting factors to help you out. You should have a healthy lifestyle to maintain good health.

1. Eat the right food. Increase your vegetable diet and fruit consumption. Avoid fat and dairy products. Decrease sugar consumption. Avoid too much carbohydrate, if your life is sedentary.

2.Drink lots of water and avoid coffee and alcohol. Coffee contains caffeine, and alcohol is metabolized to acetaldehyde. Both are addictive and are detrimental to the body because they cause physical and psychological independence.

3.Exercise regularly. You can do simple exercises like walking, or jogging in place. This can be done daily for 30 minutes onwards, or you could also do it thrice a week.

4.Sleep at least 8 hours a day. If you are an adolescent, then you need more sleep for growth and development. You could still grow tall when growth hormone is released during sleep.

These are the basics for good health. It also pays to have a life and health insurance ready for security purposes. Insurance leads will connect you with appropriate agents who can help you search for the health insurance that you specifically need.

Agents could also connect with insurance leads to obtain clients who are truly interested in applying for health insurance. This company provided agents genuine interested people who would like to apply for health insurance.

Sir Mel and His Travel Journals



Traveling has always been my dream, but up to now, I still have not traveled anywhere abroad. I haven't even seen the insides of a plane. lol... Yes, Virginia, you would have thought I am well traveled. In a sense, I am, because I love to read, but this is still one item in my Bucket List, which I want fulfilled in this lifetime.

Imagine how delighted I was when a colleague allowed me to use his pictures to post in my blog.



Sir Mel, as everyone calls him, is a Doctor of Philosophy and a well traveled person. He has been to Thailand, China, US, and now to Japan. He cultivated friends in every country he went to, and is a well-respected professional in his field.


I will try to force his hand to write his adventures eventually.

So join me in welcoming the start of a series of travel journals for Sir Mel. Thanks again sir, for the opportunity to feature you in my blog.

Singapore; The Lion City

By Elmot

Singapore is one of the smallest island city-state in the world located in Aisa. Despite of that it is also listed as one of the most popular destination by tourists as it boasts of its many man-made attractions, cleanliness and the discipline of its residents, internationally-recognized good governance by its leaders and the admiration of nations of rising from an obscure island to become the 5th wealthiest nation in the world. It is thus not only a paradise for first time visitors but also for all those who wants to invest in the most business-friendly economy in the world. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore) Its vibrant atmosphere and dynamic blend of different cultures are things to behold.
