Wendy Christien - 17 Feb 2022 - Dopamine

Dopamine influences the power of an individual’s body and mind. There are nmultiple pathways in the brain that require dopamine. Dopamine is involved in motivation, reward and reinforcement and motor control. Without enough dopamine we lose power, our minds slow down and we feel unmotivated and dull.
Like with any other neurotransmitter an imbalance in dopamine is not without effect. Too much dopamine can cause an individual to be overly intense, driven, and impulsive. Violent or reckless behaviour can also be due to an excess of dopamine.

Wendy Christien - 10 Feb 2022 - Serotonin

Serotonin allows for the resynchronization of our brains so that we can be
fresh and alert every morning. Serotonin gives us the ability to rest,
regenerate, and find serenity. Serotonin, which is involved in functions surrounding sleep, appetite, mood, and memory, helps to produce the electricity required for rest and sight.
Too much serotonin can make us nervous, apprehensive, distracted, and
sensitive to criticism.

Wendy Christien - 3 Feb 2022 - Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers or molecules that the nervous system uses to send messages throughout the body. Neurotransmitters influence neurons and can either initiate an inhibitory, excitatory, or modulatory action on the neurons.
Neurons are information carriers, and they use electrical impulses and
chemical signaling to transmit information to the various areas of the brain as well as to the rest of the nervous system.

Wendy Christien - 27 Jan 2022 - Fad Diets

Of all the people who put themselves on a diet every year at least 50 percent opt for fad diets.
The dictionary defines a Fad as an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived, a craze.
Generally, fad diets can sound promising and offer a quick fix, but many
require extremes that can put your body at risk for other issues. While
supplements and programs can be helpful, many are unsustainable and will not bring the same results as a lifestyle change.

Wendy Christien - 6 Jan 2022 - Start The New Year Well

Starting well is probably on most people’s agenda, but the practicality of
maintaining our resolutions and health goals can be less easy to achieve if we don’t have specific plans and goals in place.

Our daily choices can set us up for a good or a bad day and how we think and feel about these choices can have a knock-on effect for the next day, next week, next month, and the rest of the year.
