If EYE Were You…

If eye is natural cataract awareness month and there are some precautions you should be taking to

If eye is natural cataract awareness month and there are some precautions you should be taking to make sure your vision is grade A and your health is on point. Cataracts are the number one form of blindness worldwide! But thankfully it is preventable. Cataracts are a clouding of the lens inside the eye. However, if you don’t take cautious measures to prevent cataracts now, you could damage your eyesight to the point of surgery.

6 ways to take care of your eyes:

1.​ ​Eat Foods that Improve Your Vision

Eat the following:
•​ ​CARROTS!!
•​ ​Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards
•​ ​Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
•​ ​Eggs, nuts, beans, and other non-meat protein sources
•​ ​Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices
You may think staying healthy mainly affects your weight and heart, but everything is connected. Healthy eating helps prevent diabetes. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness in adults. Be aware of what you are feeding your body and don’t use it a human trash can.

2.​ ​Quit Smoking

Smoking can lead to cataracts and nerve damage in the eyes. Smoking isn’t worth the health risks and the drain on your wallet.

Stop smoking now

3.​ ​Wear Sunglasses

Try to read the labels on sunglasses and get ones that protect your eyesight from UV rays, meaning ultraviolet. However, any sunglasses are better than none. Look for sunglasses blocking UVA and UVB rays. Also as a bonus, sunglasses help from having wrinkles around your eyes. For beauty and health reasons, grab some shades.

4.​ ​Use Safety Eyewear

If your job or hobbies include working with wood or welding metal, swimming, construction, bright lights, strong sprays, certain sports, or hazardous equipment, wear protective goggles.

Many hours staring at a computer can cause:
•​ ​Eyestrain
•​ ​Blurry vision
•​ ​Trouble focusing at a distance
•​ ​Dry eyes
•​ ​Headaches
•​ ​Neck, back, and shoulder pain
It is very important to take breaks from staring at the screen, avoid it right before bed, and turn down the brightness of the screen light.

Bust The Calories

Get yourself into shape in ten swift moves.

1.​ ​Burpees. Swiftly moving from standing to squatting to push-up position challenges all your muscles.


2.​ ​Jumping jacks. These do-anywhere moves pump up your heart rate in no time.


3.​ ​Mountain climbers. This cardio move helps strengthen legs and core muscles as well.
4.​ ​Frogger: This plank-to-squat move seems simple, but you’ll feel it as you do your 30-second bursts. Begin in a plank position. Jump your feet to the outside of your hands, coming into a deep squat and keeping your hands on the floor, then jump back to plank. Repeat in a quick succession (steps 1 to 4) ten times.


5.​ ​Running up stairs. Run up and down the stairs at home or at the office — you’ll get the added bonus of a toned backside.

6.​ ​Walking lunges. These lunges help you develop balance while strengthening your core and lower body. Do these briskly, but make sure your form stays correct to prevent knee or ankle strain. Here’s how to do a perfect walking lunge.


7.​ ​High knees: Run in place while engaging your core and pumping your arms. The goal should be to keep your knees high and maintain an upright posture as you do your speed bursts.


8.​ ​Lateral hops: Make small jumps side to side as if you are jumping over an invisible line.


9.​ ​Jump squat: Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.


10.​ ​Box step: Find a step, stool, or box (or aim toes at an imaginary step) and lightly tap your left toes to the box, then jump to switch feet, bringing the right toes up.

Repeat the entire series 5 times.

HEART to HEART

(Khmer) ​ច​ក្រា​បេះដូង​

Heart Chakra
Sanskrit Word: Anahata meaning “unstruck” or “unhurt”
Colour: Green
Location: the center of the 7 chakras
Mantra: OM MANI PADME HUM

Love is given and received through the energy center, also known as the heart chakra. The heart chakra is basically what you think it is, everything dealing with the heart. Are you feeling loved and are you loving back?

Balance in the heart is very important, and without a healthy balance a lot of couples will struggle with an unjust balanced of one partner loving more than the other and a built of resentment or exhaustion from being a give, give, giving without any reciprocation.

The heart chakra doesn’t only deal with love with your intimate partners but with family, friends, and yourself. Everyone wants to feel loved. You yearn for self-love your whole life as well, and that very closely is correlated to the energy near the heart chakra.

It is important to open your heart and be mindful of how you give and receive love. Most people keep their heart closed due to painful past circumstances and the fear of vulnerability, but vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength and if you are never completely vulnerable your heart won’t be truly open to it’s full potential of love. Learn to open yourself up to unconditional love and compassion.

You deserve love!
