Think smaller portions . Serving sizes have ballooned recently. When dining out, choose a starter instead of an entree, split a dish with a friend, and don't order supersized anything. At home, visual cues can help with portion sizes. Your serving of meat, fish, or chicken should be the size of a deck of cards and half a cup of mashed potato, rice, or pasta is about the size of a traditional light bulb. By serving your meals on smaller plates or in bowls, you can trick your brain into thinking it’s a larger portion. If you don't feel satisfied at the end of a meal, add more leafy greens or round off the meal with fruit.
This is an important one that many don’t do in their lives – take some “me” time. Whether that’s taking a hot bath, watching your favorite TV show, reading a good book, enjoying a quiet breakfast before anyone else gets up, or whatever brings you pleasure. Make some time for you and see how it can drastically improve your mood and health.
There is no better time then now to focus on your health but don’t overwhelm yourself – set some reasonable goals and take those steps you need to improve your life. So what do you think? What will you do for your health this year?
Still, no research has clearly shown a link between exposure to other sources of heat and a man's fertility. One study did show that scrotal temperatures went up in laptop users who held the computer on their laps and warned that long-term exposures to high temperatures could harm sperm . Another study found that exposure to radiation from cell phones could adversely affect sperm that had been collected from participants. Researchers in that study speculated that keeping a cell phone in a pants pocket could affect the health of a man's sperm.
