The human body is about 70% water, which is essential for many functions invisible to our eyes.
Water is needed by the brain, digestive system, blood, joints, and more! Yet every moment, when we breathe, perspire, or talk, we lose water through droplets and vapours.
Hence, it is important to hydrate regularly throughout the day, no matter how busy you are. Each time you drink, visualise how it is nourishing your internal organs and blood system!
Breath gives us life. But not all breaths are equal. Improve your health just by making sure you are breathing well:
Being active can sound daunting for those who have not exercised for a long time. Start small, start now, because any increase in activity is better than none!
Mindfulness is not only about sitting meditation practices. The essence of mindfulness is to approach each moment with openness and curious observation, which allows us to develop deeper awareness of ourselves.
We can apply mindfulness to our daily movements, such as noticing our posture, noticing how our body parts work together to get things done. With mindful observation, we can become more aware of how tension and aches come about, and also more appreciative of our body's abilities.

For a local context, you can visit HealthXchange for information contributed by the Singhealth group of healthcare providers. My review: I like the way topics are organised in categories that you can access directly from the main menu > Health Sections, organised by target group and also common conditions.
HealthHub is another local site with lots of health information, and links to public health providers in Singapore. This site is useful if you are looking for specific health conditions or medications, as they are indexed by alphabet. My review: In my opinion, the topics are not categorised very clearly. if you are just browsing for health tips, it is easy to lose your way among some generic information and not get much out of your time spent.
