Pwa ansante. Fè egzèsis.

Pèdi pwa pa dwe difisil. 

Fè plis egzèsis, se youn nan meyè fason yo. Eseye jwenn 60 minit oswa plis pou fè egzèsis chak jou. Sa vle di nesesèman pou fè egzèsis difisil oswa ale nan jimnastik chak jou. Annik bouje kò ou. Men kèk lide:

Bouje! Si ou danse melodi ou pi renmen an, sa ka ede w boule plis pase 300 kalori nan inèdtan. 

Si ou jwe jwèt videyo, jwe jwèt ki entèraktif yo kote ou oblije bouje. Ou pa menm bezwen kite kay la pou ou bouje – eseye fè egzèsis tankou vole bra anlè janm louvri, mache an plas, monte ak desann eskalye, pouchòp oswa redresman chita pandan ou lakay ou.

Mache! Fè yon pwomnad deyò ak yon zanmi. Mache chen ou oswa chen vwazen ou, oswa mache chat ou! Olye ou kondwi, mache oswa monte bisiklèt pou ale lekòl oswa kay yon zanmi.

Netwaye! Aspiratè chanm ou. Lave vwati a. Koupe gazon an. Paran ou yo pral kontan, epi se yon lòt chans pou ou jwenn plis egzèsis, e petèt menm amize ou.

Deploge! Limite kantite tan ou gade televizyon oswa tan itilize smatfòn, konpitè oswa lòt aparèy ou. Fè tan devan ekran an rete nan mwens ke dezèdtan pa jou. Lè w ap gade televizyon oswa itilize telefòn ou – eseye mache an plas oswa fè egzèsis pandan w ap gade/jwe.

Pwa ansante. Manje yon fason ki bon pou sante.

Pwa Ansante. Oumenm ki Ansante.

Lè ou manje plis kalori pase sa ou itilize, kò ou estoke kalori anplis yo sou fòm grès. 

A few extra pounds are not bad for most people, but too many extra pounds and too much body fat can be bad for your health.

Providers use a measurement called body mass index (BMI), using your height and your weight to determine how much body fat you have. Pi bon fason pou rete nan yon pwa ki ansante oswa pou pèdi pwa se fè bon chwa manje. Men kèk fason fasil pou fè sa chak jou:

  • Eseye manje plis legim ak fwi pase tout lòt kalite manje chak fwa sa posib.
  • Chwazi manje ki pa gen anpil kalori oswa chwazi pòsyon ki pi piti lè w ap manje deyò.
  • Chwazi pla akonpayman ki bon pou sante tankou tranch pòm oswa sòs pòm olye pòmdetè fri. Si ou se anvi pòmdetè fri toutbon, eseye manje yon bagay ki bon pou sante tankou yon salad, tranch pòm oswa sòs pòm anvan, apre sa divize yon ti pòsyon pòmdetè fri ak kèk lòt moun.
  • Bwè dlo oswa lèt olye ou bwè soda.
  • Tcheke etikèt la – èske ou ka rekonèt tout engredyan yo? Si ou pa kapab, li gen petèt yon pakèt bagay anplis ou pa bezwen, kidonk chèche lòt opsyon. Eseye nwa oswa biskwit grenn antye olye pou chips.
  • Eseye ranplase ti goute sikre yo avèk bagay tankou yogout oswa fwi sèk (san sik ajoute). Si ou gen yon tandans manje bagay dous, eseye yon ti pòsyon nan bonbon prefere ou yon fwa pa jou sèlman.

Depresyon

Depresyon se yon vrè maladi. Li kapab trete.

Ou ka tounen santi ou oumenm. Depresyon se yon maladi tankou dyabèt oswa maladi kè. Premye etap la se aksepte ou bezwen èd. The second step is to talk to your provider.

Siy kouran yo nan depresyon ka gen ladan:

• Santi ou pa kontan, deprime oswa tris chak jou oswa santi ou san valè, koupab, dekouraje oswa sanzespwa. 
• Pa enterese nan pastan, aktivite ak moun ou te renmen lontan.
• Pwoblèm somèy oswa dòmi plis ke dabitid, oswa santi ou fatige, fèb oswa manke enèji.
• Pèt apeti oswa manje twòp.
• Gen difikilte pou konsantre, pou sonje oswa pou pran desizyon.
• Panse oswa pale sou swisid.

Vitès batman kè ak veso sangen yo. Vitès batman kè ou, tansyon ak kolestewòl ou gendwa ogmante. This raises your risk for heart attacks and strokes.

Sistèm iminitè. Estrès fè blesi yo geri pi dousman. Ou gen plis chans tou pou ou trape rim ak enfeksyon.

Pwa. Estrès fè ou anvi grès ak idrat kabòn. Si ou pran pwa nan zòn vant ou, ou nan pi gwo
risk pou maladi kè ak dyabèt.

Sante mantal. Estrès fè ou sou tansyon ak angwase. Sa ka lakòz depresyon, maltèt oswa lòt pwoblèm tankou pwoblèm somèy.

Reprann ekilib ou. Si estrès pran posesyon lavi ou, men kèk lide pou ou reprann kontwòl:

Rezève tan pou fè egzèsis regilyèman. Tcheke avèk doktè ou pou wè ki kalite egzèsis ki bon pou ou.

  • Fè bagay ou renmen.
  • Aprann kijan pou detann ou. 
  • Trete tèt ou byen.

Si estrès ou an yon pwoblèm toujou, pale avèk doktè ou. Li ka rekòmande yon moun ki ka ede ou jwenn lòt fason pou jere estrès ou.

Medikaman kont depresyon

Kesyon, repons ak konsèy itil.

Be sure to see your provider regularly. Espesyalman lè ou fenk kòmanse pran yon medikaman kont depresyon. Oswa lè dòz la chanje.

Kijan pou m konnen medikaman m lan aji?

Be patient. Give it time to work. Most people start to feel better after several weeks. Ou ta dwe santi ou mwens fatige oswa enkyete, ti kras pa ti kras. Sa ka pran yon ti tan pou ou jwenn tout avantaj medikaman ou yo.
