This trimester I have lots of assignments, which leads to lots of presentation. Out of 5 presentations, 1 of them is individual presentation, public speaking. We were given 4-5 min to speak about anything in our tutorial class. It freaked me out as I have stage fright. *even my period delayed for a long time. My mind was thinking, "how can i make it through?" I hate standing in front alone and speaks.
you can imagine how nervous I was. *ugly photo better not display too big la
after weeks of surveying, asking around my friends, finally i choose this topic "Things We Shouldn't Do After Meals"
We can find lots of food reviews on different blogs around the world, most people reads it every single day to find out where to get yummy foods. However, no one really concern about this topic, so I thought of sharing this in my blog :). Here are what i've got after searching on the net.
#1, We Shouldn't Eat Fruits After Meals
Yes, eating fruits is healthy but eating fruits right after meal is not. This is because eating fruits right after meals will cause your stomach to be filled with air. Your digestive system will not be working as they should too. Anyone wish to have tummy? No right? So we should only eat fruits an hour before and after meal or it would be even better if you have it in the morning on an empty stomach as the body can best use the nutrients and get the energy to start off your day.
#2, We Shouldn't Sleep After MealsEat then sleep. When most people is full, we will feel like throwing everything aside and have a good sleep. Do you know that food is fuel? Eating it and then resting will makes the body store it for later use, but if you do the same routine over and over, all you do is store and never use the reserves. So, Weight Gains! Plus, the food we take will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric problems and infections in our intestine.
#3, We Shouldn't Bath After Meals
People nowadays prefer to have their meal outside as they are lazy to cook. Many of them will have the habit to bath right after they reach home after their meals to keep themselves clean. This is not good as bathing after meal will increase the amount of blood flow in hands and legs, thus decrease the amount of blood flow around the stomach. Therefore, this will weaken the digestive system in our stomach. It is better to bath after half an hour having ur meals.
Having the habit to loosen your belt after eating means that you have over eaten to a level that you are uncomfortable with the belt becoming a noose. You may feel comfortable loosening your belt but it means you may continue overeating. Loosening your belt is basically relaxing your abdominal muscles which means having a bulging belly in the long run. Instead if you tuck in your stomach, you contract your abdominal muscles and are training them to be taut and firm. So eat only to the extent that you can be comfortable without loosening your belt!
Drinking tea and coffee helps us in reducing the risk for cardiovascular disease to putting off diabetes and providing anti-oxidants that will help your body fight aging. However, drinking tea and coffee after meals is not recommended by most nutritionists. Drinking Tea or coffee after meal makes it difficult for us to absorb iron. So drinking tea is bad especially for children and women who require iron and are generally iron deficient. It is preferable to drink tea only post at least an hour after meals.
#6, We Shouldn't Walk After Meals
Most people especially the elderly say that
to be frank, i hate Smokers! But if you do, studies from experts proved that smoking a cigarette after a meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes, causing higher chances of cancer!!
back to the presentation, lecturer gave me good comment overall. In fact, an effective speaker. wooohooo *flying in the sky. xD. However, i am opposite as others cause people usually starts off without confidence and slowly gain it but i started off with confidence then lose it. :X.Never expect myself getting such good feedback from lecturer. I thought i did quite badly cause i can feel my whole hands, legs and even my voice were shivering.
Imma grateful to have supportive friends with me. They tried their best to comfort me and help me to gain confidence. I got too nervous till they were nervous too. *felt bad for it :S You know who you are! ;)
Hopefully those info above helps you! :)
