The Lazy Person’s Exercise Plan

“>From the WebMD Archives

By now we all know the dangers of eating too much and exercising too little: heart disease. stroke. diabetes. etc. But even in a society as obsessed with slimness as ours, most of us would rather have a root canal than hit the gym. Well, couch potatoes, take heart. Experts now say that effective exercise can be incorporated into daily life so easily, even the most exercise-phobic among us can shape up.

“The recommendations for physical activity have changed drastically. They make it easier for the general public to achieve the correct levels of exercise because it includes such everyday activities as cleaning house and walking,” says Regina L. Tan, DVM, MS, a CDC officer at the Georgia Division of Public Health. After the guidelines were changed from “20 minutes of vigorous activity 3 days per week” to “30 minutes of moderate activity 5 or more days per week,” a new questionnaire for assessing activity levels was devised, based on those changes. Tan and colleagues set out to determine whether the new questionnaire offered an accurate means of assessing physical activity levels, and whether those levels had increased since the guidelines were revised.

For inactive people, doing any kind of activity will benefit their health. The American Heart Association recommends that inactive people gradually work up to exercising three to four times a week for 30-60 minutes at 50%-80 % of their maximal heart rate .

Tan’s team polled more than 2,000 adult Georgia residents using both the old and new surveys.

“With the new questionnaire, it does look like the average amount of physical activity has increased somewhat,” she tells WebMD. “We are, however, still investigating the accuracy of the survey, and the bottom line is that the increase, even if it’s real, is very slight. Adults in the United States are just not getting enough physical activity, period. We are getting bigger and bigger.”

The No. 1 problem, says Tan, is that most of us have very sedentary jobs.

“We sit at a desk all day long.” To stay fit and slim, “you have to overcompensate for that, especially since a lot of what we’re eating isn’t all that healthy.”


But we’re not overcompensating. Instead, we’re coming home from a day of sitting at the office computer only to sit some more — at our home computer, in front of the TV, and at the dinner table.

No, you don’t have to start training for a marathon. The difference between getting healthy and becoming a statistic “is increasing your activity level gradually, maybe by 20% a week. That will get you up to the recommended levels before too long,” says Tan.

How to do it? The following options can be just as effective as jumping jacks, jogging trails, or high-priced gyms:

  • Don’t use elevators or escalators; instead, take the stairs. Start with one such substitution a day, and build up slowly. So you work on the 50th floor? Ride up to 48 and walk up from there. Careful, though — walking down stairs can be hard on your knees. Walk up, but ride down.
  • Stop circling parking lots and fighting for the closest spot. Park a little bit farther away from the office or mall, and walk. You’ll not only increase fitness, you’ll decrease stress.
  • If you take the bus or subway, get off one or two stops early and walk the rest of the way.
  • Vacuum more often, change the sheets more often, mop the floor more often. These get your heart pumping, which means they are excellent calorie burners.
  • Cold and snowy where you live? Shovel it, walk your dog in it, build an igloo with your kids. The activity will not only boost your fitness levels, it will help keep you warm!

According to Tan, “That’s all you need to do to make a real difference in your fitness level. Everyday activities that you might not think are exercise, are exercise.” In the new recommendations, doing the laundry, vacuuming, and cleaning your house all count as exercise.

Tan says that everyone should consult a doctor before beginning an exercise regime, even one this gentle. But, she says, very few people can expect to be told that they cannot or should not exercise.

“Absolutely everyone can benefit from increasing his or her activity level,” she says. “Even the most athletic people will improve their fitness level, and this is especially true for sedentary or overweight people.”

Online Courses #online #physical #education #courses, #online #courses


Online Courses

Before you search through our database of Online Australian Courses, please take the time to read the below as it may help you to decide if Online Learning is right for you.
So, what’s it all about?

So what’s Online Learning all about?

Unless you are directly involved with teaching online or have taken an online course yourself, chances are that you find the concept of online education a little scary. You might not have any interest in it. Terms like distance education, fully online, blended courses, virtual courses, e-learning, hybrid courses, mixed-mode, asynchronous learning, distributed learning, Web-facilitated, and Web-enhanced learning add to the confusion. However, online learning is on the rise due to the developments and affordability of computing and you should know some of the basics and issues surrounding it.

The Advantages of Studying Online

Considering the fact that there are numerous benefits that are linked to education and advancing your qualifications, there are as yet far more advantages for people who pursue online education as to achieve their goals. Some of the most basic benefits of studying online include:


Online learning classes can be taken during a lunch break, while your children are out playing games, or even while you are cooking dinner! It is not necessary for you to be present in a classroom at any fixed time for the next two or four years so as to complete your qualification. But this does not mean that you would not be required to work at all. You would be required to do the same type of study as a traditional campus based student, that too within a particular time limit. The only flexibility you would enjoy is that you can study and finish your work at any time of the day.

Another wonderful thing about studying online these days is that you get to know your classmates and tutors more intimately. Online chat rooms, emails, course work forums etc allow students to ask questions, share ideas and seek help if needed. In fact, some say that studying online is more interactive than the traditional face to face student given the vast array of available technologies.


The best part about studying online is that education comes to you no matter where you are as long as you have a computer connected to the Internet. So wherever you are, at home, at work, or your favourite beach or park, you can easily access your course work and enjoy the environment in which you are completing your studies.


Say goodbye to all financial issues like convenience meals, childcare expenses, as well as the money would have had to spend reach campus thirty minutes away. With the availability of online courses, you can study from the comfort of your own home, without having to face the many financial hardships that come with having to attend traditional college.

Personalised Attention for All

Students who enrol in online programs get to receive a much more individualised attention from their tutors as compared to the attention students who study in traditional classes. Online education classes are virtual and students and teachers basically correspond with each other through emails, telephone calls etc. This is one reason why your tutors would know more about you, your learning pattern and your requirements as compared to the students they get to see three or four times a week.

These are some of the most basic advantages of online study and one should closely look at both the benefits and the disadvantages of online education before making a decision. Make sure that the course you are taking is one which would help you grow professionally and not one you would repent taking.

Online Physical Education Bachelors Degree Program Info #online #education #bachelors #degree,


Online Physical Education Bachelors Degree Program Info

Essential Information

Through a bachelor’s degree program in physical education, students explore methods for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They also learn how to create personalized wellness plans, focusing on proper nutrition and exercise. Due to the hands-on experience required, there are no online bachelor’s degree programs in physical education. These programs primarily train aspiring teachers, but graduates can also become fitness instructors or coaches. Courses cover fitness and health as well as teaching methods.

These programs require four years of full-time study to complete. Students are required to take general education courses, and they must complete a teacher education program that includes courses in educational assessment, special education, the psychology of learning, and child development. Students get experience in classroom management and in teaching through practice in real classrooms and a student teaching internship. Some may also require on-campus competency exams. Physical education courses may include exercise physiology, kinesiology, team sports, motivation, health education and first aid.

Graduates of these programs who wish to teach in a public school will need a license. In most states, licensing requirements include earning a bachelor’s degree, completing an approved teacher education program and passing competency examinations.

Bachelor of Science in Physical Education Program Information

Online degree programs in physical education are usually not available at the bachelor’s level, though individual courses may be available in a distance learning format. However, through the on-campus program, students learn healthy lifestyle techniques for themselves and for others. They learn skills for exercising without causing pain or injury. This degree program requires that students have at least a high school diploma or the GED equivalent.

Degree Information and Requirements

Usually, the bachelor’s degree program in physical education takes four or five years to complete. Both online and on-campus students often participate in physical and health-related activities, including regular workouts or intramural sports. Because these programs typically prepare students for instructional leadership roles, completion of multiple teaching experiences is often required.

List of Common Bachelor’s-Level Physical Education Courses

In addition to physical education courses, students must also take basic general education courses.

Human Body Systems

Through this course, students become familiar with the major systems of the body, including the skeletal, vascular and muscular systems.

Human Movement and Kinesiology

Students taking this course learn about the natural movements of the human body and ways to strengthen regular muscle motion through exercise. They also learn how unnatural movements lead to injury.

Health and Fitness

This course teaches students the basics of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They learn about factors that can affect wellness, such as genetics, nutritional intake and regular exercise.


Students learn specific coaching methods and techniques for sports or fitness instruction. They also learn to assess others’ health and create balanced fitness plans based on weight, age and dietary regimen.

Career Information for Graduates

In addition to becoming physical education teachers, graduates of a bachelor’s program may also find careers as coaches, athletic trainers or personal trainers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ( ), all of these careers require at least a bachelor’s degree, though some may require additional certification for career advancement. The BLS states that the mean annual salary in 2015 for athletic trainers was $46,940, while coaches and fitness trainers and instructors earned $40,050 and $40,970, respectively. As of October 2016, physical education teachers earn a median annual salary of $41,994 according to

Continuing Education Information

Individuals who would like to continue their education can pursue a master’s degree in physical education entirely online. Other related degree programs in health and fitness are also available, which can lead to advanced career opportunities in a wider variety of fields, such as physical therapy or sports medicine. Certification and licensure may also be available in some fields.

There are currently no fully online programs available for a bachelor’s in physical education due to the hands-on nature of the program; however, the master’s program for physical education can be found fully online. At the bachelor’s level, some on-campus programs may offer a few courses online but otherwise require in-person work.

Medical Factoring/Financing

Medical Factoring is taking the place of traditional lending because traditional lenders are not lending like they were in the past. The financial landscape has changed over the last few years for all areas of the healthcare industry and worldwide. With banks cutting credit lines, not making personal and business loans like they were in the past. Medical factoring is filling the void when cash is needed, when it is not available by traditional means.

Medical receivables factoring provides two different avenues of factoring, one for businesses like staffing companies, manufactures, etc. and the other is for 3rd-party medical billing claims without waiting for insurance companies, HMO’s and Medicare/Medicaid. Factoring for staffing, manufacturing fields can go as high as 97% where 3rd-party insurance companies, HMOs and Medicare/Medicaid goes from 75% to 85%.

Cerebral Palsy #cp, #cerebral #palsy, #wheelchair, #crutches, #congenital #disorder, #birth #defect,


Cerebral Palsy

Maybe someone at your school has cerebral palsy — or perhaps you have it and you’ve been dealing with it your whole life. As we become more aware of appearance and body image. it can be tough to be in a wheelchair or to have people tease you about the way you walk. But lots of teens with CP don’t let it hold them back. They do just what everyone else does.

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder of the brain. Normally, the brain tells the rest of the body exactly what to do and when to do it. Because of how CP affects the brain, a person might not be able to walk, talk, eat, or move the way most people do.

CP affects a person’s muscle tone and ability to coordinate body movements. People with CP have trouble controlling their muscles. How a person is affected all depends on what part of the brain is involved.

How Does Cerebral Palsy Affect People?

The three types of cerebral palsy are:

  1. Spastic (pronounced: SPASS-tik) CP is the most common type of CP. People with spastic CP can’t relax their muscles or the muscles may be stiff.
  2. Athetoid (pronounced: ATH-uh-toid) CP affects the ability to control the muscles of the body. A person’s arms or legs may flutter and move suddenly.
  3. Ataxic (pronounced: ay-TAK-sik). People with ataxic CP have problems with balance and coordination. Their movements may seem shaky.

People with CP can have mild cases or more severe cases. It all depends on how much of the brain is affected and which parts of the body that section of the brain controls. If CP affects both arms and both legs, a person might need to use a wheelchair. If CP only affects the legs, someone may walk in an unsteady way or have to wear braces or use crutches.

If CP affects the part of the brain that controls speech, a person with CP might have trouble talking clearly or not be able to speak at all. Some people with CP also have learning disabilities or behavior problems, though many don’t have these issues. Others can have medical problems like seizures or epilepsy. or hearing impairment.

What Causes It?

In most cases, doctors don’t know exactly what causes CP. They do know that it’s the result of damage to the brain — either while a baby is in the womb or in the first few months or years after the baby is born.

Babies have a higher chance of having CP if they are born early or if they’re very underweight at birth. Babies who don’t get enough oxygen during or right after birth also have a higher chance of having CP. So do babies who need to be on a ventilator (a machine to help with breathing) for several weeks or more after birth.

CP is not contagious, so people can’t catch it from other people. Even a mother with CP can’t pass it on to her unborn baby.

What Do Doctors Do?

Doctors diagnose CP when kids are young, so by the time people reach their teens, they usually know they have CP and are used to living with it.

With CP, the problem with the brain will not get any worse as people get older. For example, someone who has CP that affects only the legs won’t develop CP in the arms or have problems with speech later on.

Although CP doesn’t get worse over time, how it affects someone’s body can change as the person grows or develops. For example, some teens with CP may develop dislocated hips (when the bones that meet at the hips move out of their normal position) or scoliosis (curvature of the spine).

Because CP affects people differently, there are lots of ways to treat and manage it. Some teens have only mild problems with movement. Others need crutches or wheelchairs to get around. Doctors, parents, teachers, therapists, and the person with CP all work together to develop the best treatment plan.

Teens with CP may work with these experts:

  • a pediatric orthopedist
  • a developmental pediatrician who looks at how the person is growing or developing compared with other teens
  • a pediatric physiatrist (or rehabilitation physician), who helps kids with disabilities of many kinds
  • therapists, like physical therapists to help with movement, occupational therapists to help with skills like handwriting, and speech therapists

Some teens with CP take medicines to relax their muscles (in the case of spastic CP) or to help control seizures. And some might have special surgeries to keep their arms or legs straighter and more flexible.

Coping With Cerebral Palsy

Puberty can be especially challenging for people with CP. Rapid growth can cause weight gain and clumsiness in any teen, but can make it even more difficult for someone with CP to move around. A person’s muscles can become tighter as the bones grow, which can restrict movement even more.

If you have CP, what you’ll do depends on your CP. One thing you can do is to get more involved in your medical care wherever possible. Keep up with your appointments, including any physical or other therapy visits. This is a time when your medical team will want to keep an eye on you and adapt your treatment or therapy as you grow.

Many guys and girls with CP can do the same sorts of things that other teens do, like enjoying extracurricular activities, listening to or playing music, hanging out with friends, reading, going to the mall, and dating, to name just a few.

Helping a Friend Who Has CP

If you know someone who has CP and you’re wondering how to help, just treat that person the way you would anyone else. Some people with CP might need extra assistance once in a while, like when reaching for something. Help out — just as you would with anyone else — without making a big deal about it. If you can’t understand what a person with CP is saying or if it takes longer to do things, give him or her extra time to speak or move.

And don’t be afraid to talk to a friend about what it’s like to live with CP. Everyone wants to fit in, and being in a wheelchair or having other physical problems can make someone self-conscious or feel left out. So if you know someone with CP, try to be welcoming and include him or her in what you’re doing.
