Yoram Yasur Abt: 8 ways to practice self-care to improve health and mood

Yoram Yasur Abt :

Whether it’s work or home occupations, spending time can sometimes seem like a luxury. That must be removed from the head as self-care is essential to live a full life. Being at our optimum level will help us lead a quiet life focused on the really important things.

This is what we mean by looking after our physical and emotional health. Also, to carry out activities that make us feel good and satisfied in every way. As the famous song would say, “give your body joy …”, because that is definitely what you do. For this reason, part of self-care is to know ourselves more deeply in all aspects. Lately I have been more aware of the issue since I have realized that I do not practice it as much as I should. I have found some self-care ideas that I want to share and which I believe can contribute to our total well-being:

# 1 Disconnecting:

Yoram Yasur Abt will give you one great advice: Put your cell phone in air mode and disconnect for a while. This will serve to keep you away from your email, messages and social networks. On countless occasions, we feel overwhelmed with all the information we receive constantly.

# 2 Be selfish from time to time:

Every day, take a moment where you do an activity that makes you feel good. Go for a walk, eat a delicious dessert or maybe go and give yourself that much-needed massage. Take that moment out for yourself and forget about the needs of others.

# 3 Get out of your comfort zone:

Try a new look, go see a different movie or do an activity that you are not used to. Getting out of the rut can be this touch you need in your life.

# 4 Move:

Physical activity is important. Yoram Yasur Abt: “If you do not have much time to exercise, take at least a few minutes to take a daily walk. Go up and down stairs and do stretching exercises. Exercise activates and helps us to be more alert”.

# 5 Eat healthily:

As they say out there: we are what we eat. Avoid fried foods and high in sugars, also fast food. Your health and your skin will thank you for taking care of yourself. This will definitely lengthen your life.

# 6- Laugh:

Laughter heals everything. Sit down and enjoy a comedy show, or maybe call those friends you have not seen in a long time and go for a walk. Remembering anecdotes and great moments is good to awaken our emotions and the mood

# 7 Stay at Home:

Not all the time you have to be up and down doing something. This weekend take some time and separate your days to sleep, read, cook and watch your favorite movies and shows.

# 8 Go out of the city:

Necessary. From time to time there comes a time when changing environment becomes mandatory. Traveling is the best response to stress and anxiety.

Yoram Yasur Abt: 6 tips for finding love for yourself

Yoram Yasur Abt : Accepting ourselves and loving ourselves as we are is the best path to success in life. The image we have of ourselves is projected in the others, both in the realm of personal things and work relations. That is why it is important to find love in ourselves. Here we leave our 6 tips to achieve this.

1. Be honest:

Yoram Yasur Abt :If there is something you do not like about your life or your environment, you must recognize the problem and face it. One of the things that causes most unhappiness is to live according to parameters that are not chosen. If you are able to be honest with yourself, you will have half the way done.

2. Bet on what you like:

Yoram Yasur Abt :One of the best ways to find yourself is to encourage those things that we like. For example, if you always liked cooking, sign up for a cooking course. If exercise is your passion, try going to the gym. Do not let the day-to-day laziness kill those cravings for personal growth.

3. Look at your future:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Create a mental image of your future self and ask yourself how to get there. This exercise is a good way to start guiding us on the right path”.

4. Make a break:

Yoram Yasur Abt :You do not need to take your backpack and go back for a year backpacking. You only need to dedicate yourself a few minutes each day to reflect on what you do with your life and decide whether or not it is the right way.

5. Think positive:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Facing life with positive thoughts is fundamental to keeping our depressants at bay. Try to always see the other side of the situations, how good or bad your life is only depends on the glass with which you are watching things”.

6. Avoid toxics and surround yourself with good vibes

In the same line as the previous point is avoiding at all costs the toxic ones. What is a Toxic Person? It is one that focuses its energies on the negative part of life, never agrees nor at ease with any situation and, of course, is far from transmitting good vibes. Surely you know someone like that. Avoid it at all costs or you will fall into its spiral of destruction.

Now you can put these tips into practice to find the love for yourself. Do not let anything or anyone take your smile away and love yourself just the way you are! This is the best medicine for others to start doing.

Yoram Yasur Abt: Megarexia: the eating disorder that is affecting the life of many

Yoram Yasur Abt : Unfortunately, there are various eating disorders that affect a large number of people, mainly women. These sufferings have something in common: those who suffer have a distorted view of their body, they do not perceive it as it really is.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Although anorexia and bulimia are the most known eating disorders, there is another condition called megarexia. The people who suffer from it consider that their weight is adequate and their body looks thin, even if they are obese”.

Those who live with megarexia are convinced that their figure has the ideal weight and proportions and that they have a healthy appearance (even some people with megarexia can confuse overweight with force, believing that it is muscle mass), to the extent that Refuse to exercise and eat a healthy diet. On the contrary, they consume large amounts of food, most of them saturated with fats and calories, because they are sure that it will not make them gain weight, since when they look at themselves in the mirror they see a thin body.

Marina Díaz Marsá, director of the Eating Disorders Unit at Hospital Clínico in Madrid, explained to the media that people suffering from megarexia have a distortion in their body schema, causing them to see themselves as thin and Healthy, without realizing that they are overweight or obese.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “In addition to being overweight or obese, the intake of foods with so-called empty calories, that is, they do not contribute nutrients (such as box bread, fried foods, fast food, soda, etc.), causes other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.”

Because this eating disorder is little known, exact numbers of how many people are not. However, it is estimated that a significant percentage of the world’s 500 million people with obesity may be undiagnosed megarexes.

In the medical literature, it is also possible to find this condition as “fatorexia”. The term “fatorexia” comes from “fat”, which is ‘fat’ in English and ‘orexis’, which means ‘appetite’.

Some of the symptoms of megarexia are:

Avoid looking at full body mirrors

Do not know how much you weigh exactly

Wearing loose-fitting clothing and make sure all the clothes fit well

Ensuring that people exaggerate by telling you that you have a problem with your weight or your diet

Believing that scales are broken down when they mark your actual weigh

The treatment for megarexia or fatorexia consists of a psychological therapy so that the person learns to know his body and accepts it as it is, in addition to a balanced diet that allows him to have an adequate weight and improve his health.

Do you know Tanorexia? Yoram Yasur expert in rare diseases want to tell you….

yoram yasur tanorexia

Yoram Yasur Abt: Tanorexia

Yoram Yasur Abt | Until not long ago, we had to wait for the arrival of summer to boast of tan. However, the irruption in the market of the cabs of UVA rays brought with it out of season of that, so desired, cinnamon color. But the stubbornness of a dark skin has gone so far that for some people it has become an obsession. In fact, it has led to the emergence of a psychological disorder called tanorexia (so-called tan in English).

This term arose in 2005 in the American Academy of Dermatology and refers to a disorder in the perception of one’s own body. If in diseases such as anorexia or bulimia a person believes to have a weight above what they have, when we speak of tanorexia we mean a dysmorphia (excessive worry about some physical defect, either real or imaginary) in which the Person has the perception that their skin is never brown and therefore overexposes to the sun or UVA rays.

“This psychological disorder is more common between the ages of 17 and 35 and affects both men and women. People who feel the need to sunbath or have regular UVA sessions can see their health resentful, as they do not usually take the necessary precautions to protect their skin. There are many myths surrounding the products to get a faster tan, including oils, soft drinks, and moisturizers, but none of them should be used, since they do not contain sunscreen, the only effective shield that can have the skin Exposed to the sun”.

Some studies point out that, in addition, tanning addiction tanning addiction is since when taking sun release endorphins and opioids, in an effect like that of people addicted to drugs, and in many cases even leads them to suffer Withdrawal syndrome if they cannot tan their skin as much as they want. This problem not only involves psychological disorders (anxiety, dissatisfaction, competitiveness …), also sometimes loss of appetite and, worse, inevitably increases the chances of suffering from skin cancer due to overexposure to ultraviolet rays.

Yoram Yasur Abt:

“The profile of the person suffering from tanorexia is that of a woman between 17 and 35 years old who, despite having a brownish skin color, will always look paler than it is. For this reason, it exposes itself to the sun in an insistent way, touching unsightly limits and can be dangerous to health”.

When it comes to recognizing whether a person has tanorexia, it is sufficient to observe their physical appearance and behavior. Among the most common symptoms of tanorexia are:

  • Tanned skin in excess.
  • This results in a premature aging of the skin. Its appearance is rough, it is dehydrated, the lines of expression are very marked, it is rough and even thicker.
  • These patients present a high degree of anxiety about the possibility of losing the acquired tan.
  • The most common is that they come very often to tanning centers.
  • It is also common for them to compete with those around them to see who is the darkest.
  • They always state that their skin is pale or that they are not as dark as they would like.

To treat tanorexia

This obsession with finding the perfect skin color, as with other dysmorphias. Best to use a doctor who specializes in this type of behavior. Usually a psychologist. The first thing that must be given is an intention. On the part of the affected to change the situation of dependence. In which it is, as it happens in other cases of addictions. Once this will exist, some guidelines of therapy should be followed to deal with the problem.

In many occasions, this type of obsession is derived from other problems like anxiety or depression. So if the professional detects some of the symptoms. Of these disorders will establish a treatment for them as well, since the problem must be addressed from the root. The self-esteem of the affected is key in the recovery. Something that will improve with the therapies and will get to end the distortion is its own image.

In addition to such treatments

And depending on the damage done to the skin. It may be necessary to regenerate it through specialized cosmetic. Products that help it recover some of its hydration and elasticity.

Although it should not be forgotten that the harmful effects of. The sun on the skin may appear years later. Psychological treatments are the ones that need. The most time so it is very important to have patience and to be making progresses little. By little that motivate to continue with the process of change.

On the other hand, we must not forget that we must expose ourselves to the sun. In a healthy way. Not doing it during the central hours of the day, protecting us.

This feeling of restlessness does not disappear once you leave work, continue in an iron way without being able to disconnect from the pending tasks and the anguish of those that are yet to come.

One of the data that we must keep in mind always is that work stress affects all levels: physical, emotional, and cognitive. This does not mean that the person suffering from stress is aware of what is happening to him or can quickly link the cause to the consequences, or vice versa. This will make it difficult for you to find the help you need to deal with that emotional state.

Workplace stress emotional symptoms:

Emotions can sometimes be complex and difficult to translate, even one may not be aware that he is especially irascible, but that does not mean that people around him do not easily perceive it.

“Emotional instability is going to be one of the clues to investigate”. That state in which one does not know how to find or change emotion quickly, is an indication that something is happening.

“My back hurts” will appear”.

If we submit to the body at constant tension, regardless of whether one is aware that. He is in constant hypervigilance or with the body unable to relax him. The whole body will suffer. It may begin with a contracture, by feeling the rigid body or being self-conscious that it cannot be undone.

In addition, headaches can also occur due to tension. Accompanied by other physical symptoms related to anxiety such as tachycardia. Hyperventilation, tremors, excessive sweating, etc. On the other hand, it can also cause eating disorders like lack of appetite. Intestinal problems and even stomachs.

Work strain, cognitive symptoms:

In the end, being stressed makes one unable to think clearly and shows difficulty in maintaining attention. Because they lose their concerns. Even in thinking about tasks that will come later. Or that comes to consider their own ability to cope with work.

Being subjected to a constant tension, memory can also fail. And all lead to a terrible feeling of loss of control.

yoram yasur male-infertility

Yoram Yasur Abt: All about male infertility

Yoram Yasur Abt | Male infertility is defined as the inability of a man to impregnate a fertile woman. After trying for a long time and without any method of contraception.

In people under 30, between 20 and 37% achieve pregnancy in approximately 3 months.

But when there are medical conditions that interfere with the ability to conceive.

When we start talking about infertility. According to several studies, 15% of couples trying to conceive.

For a year without success are infertile.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “As the biological process of reproduction is more focused on the woman, who hosts the future baby inside her body, we tend to believe that when a couple is unable to conceive infertility is in the woman. However, 7% of all men are infertile and among infertile people, between 40 and 50% are men”.

The importance of semen and spermatozoa:

Fertility in men depends on the quality of the semen, the organic fluid through which sperm move, which are the haploid cells (male gamete) that fuse their nucleus with an ovum of a female (gamete), which later will lead to the formation of an embryo and fetus.

For this reason, semen is very important in sexual reproduction. The quality of the semen is measured by the ability to achieve fertilization, that is, what define the semen quality are the spermatozoa, both in quantity and in their functional capacity. A “good quality” sperm is one that can travel to the position of the eggs to fuse their nucleus.

The road to fertilization:

In order for men to be clinically capable of conceiving, several things must happen. On one hand, man must produce healthy spermatozoa.

YORAM YASUR

They have an adequate quantity and quality. As sperm are produced in the testicles. This requires the proper functioning of the male reproductive organs.

Which depend mainly on proper formation and growth during puberty. In turn, the body of man must produce the necessary amount of testosterone. And other hormones that are involved in the production of sperm.

Once formed, the spermatozoa must be transported to the semen. This is done through specific tubes that lead to the sperm.

In the semen and then be ejaculated by the penis.

In this case, a correct amount of spermatozoa is necessary in the semen.

Since the smaller the amount, the less chance a sperm can fertilize an egg.

A low concentration of spermatozoa is about 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen or less than 39 million per ejaculate.

“In addition, spermatozoa have to be able to be functional and able to move. In case the movement or functionality is not appropriate. Then it is likely that they will not find the egg or not penetrate it.”

yoram yasur goodbye-means-maturity

Yoram Yasur Abt: Saying goodbye means maturity

Yoram Yasur Abt | Life is like a train. We shared the wagon with many people, but we did not get to befriend all of them and some of them did not even get to know us.

There are those who annoy us or are unfriendly and others arouse great sympathy. There will be those who accompany us until the end of the tour.

And others will be coming down very soon. Life, like that train, is a constant change, so holding on to the immutable implies, in a way, denying reality.

Over the years, you will have to say goodbye several times. Sometimes that farewell will be very painful.

But breaking that bond is imperative to continue forward. Every time you say goodbye to someone. In a certain way, you reconnect with yourself because you need to find a new balance. That is not always bad, the really bad thing is to remain attached to people who cause us harm, limit us, and prevent us from growing.

Dare to break the bond:

“Saying goodbye does not always mean to stop seeing a person or to forget about it, it simply means to break the current bond that we have established because it is the relationship that you have created the cause of the malaise”. When a person does not need you, when you are not as important as he / she is to you, you will gradually fill you with gaps and gaps. When you give too much without receiving virtually nothing in return, you will end up empty, tired, and disappointed.

Of course, daring to break that bond is not easy. There are likely to be many feelings in between, a story built on two and perhaps even hopes for the future. However, the rule is very simple: when the presence of a person causes more harm than good, when neither of them enjoys company and the relationship reports more suffering than happiness, it is time to revalue that relationship and dare to say goodbye.

Saying goodbye involves living a grieving process:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “To say goodbye implies to live a process of mourning, which is not always easy because it carries very intense emotions”. The first step is to accept that we are no longer well-loved or have ceased to be important and occupy a significant place in that person’s life.

The second step is to make the decision to say goodbye, being aware that it is the best solution. This phase is very important because it will prevent future regrets, you must take that step knowing that you are breaking a toxic link, being fully aware that it is a relationship that has no future. The decision should not be the result of an emotional start, but should be considered and weighed.

The third step is to learn how to channel the emotions that are likely to flood you, such as loss of feeling, anger, sadness and / or nostalgia. The wounds of the soul take time to heal, but it is important that you do not stay with those emotions inside because they end up cramping.

YORAM YASUR

In fact, anger, hatred, or rancor are emotions that only hurt those who feel them. Therefore, while it is normal to experience during the first stages, it is also essential that you get rid of them throughout the process. If you continue to feed those emotions, it will mean that you are still somehow tied to that person, so you will not be able to close that chapter of your life. When you get rid of those negative emotions you will realize that you can carry on lighter luggage.

Look inside you and grow

Often, when we are immersed in relationships that cause suffering, we disconnect from our desires, needs and illusions. It is a mechanism of disconnection that we unconsciously put into action to protect ourselves. That is why saying goodbye to this toxic relationship opens a new path for you, new opportunities, and the possibility of learning from mistakes.

When you are about to close a chapter of your life. Move the focus of your attention inward, think of yourself. Clarify what you want and make new plans. It is not about filling the void that has left that person with someone else. Because it is likely that within a certain time you find yourself in the same situation again. About finding new reasons to live, new passions and new ways of understanding and living in the world.
