Donating your blood (if you’re qualified) is a gift of life. Even one donation is equivalent in saving as many as 3 lives in this country, according to ARC (the American Red Cross). And did you know that blood donation is not only helpful for recipients?
It also provides several benefits for donors. First, you can get health checkup for free. It requires a health screening. The main variables required to check before the procedure are your blood pressure, blood temperature, pulse, and hemoglobin levels.
Plus, it carries psychological and physical health benefits. It’s a nice way to help provide stress relief, improve emotional well-being, reduce isolation, and drive a sense of belonging.
Also, it is good for the health of your blood circulation. It might improve your blood viscosity by stimulating more red blood cells regeneration. Donating blood means you reduce the amounts of red blood cells from circulation. As a result, your body is likely to produce new, flexible replacements.
It’s not clear yet whether drinking more water would help reduce the risk of hypercoagulability. But keeping hydrated is always worth a try to keep healthy and would also be a good idea in your blood thinner steps.
People have to take in as much fluid (water) every day as they lose through sweating, breathing, and any other eliminating processes. Even if you’re an individual with high-intense activity, you may need to drink more water. But don’t overdo it — just let your thirst be your natural guide!
Fortunately, plain water isn’t the only way to get fluid. For examples, get also fluid as much as you need by eating fruits & vegetables rich in water – or drinking beverages low in calorie!
Studies suggest that psychological factors (including stress) can factor into cardiac risk . More episodes your stress is spinning out of control, more likely you develop problems associated with cardiovascular system.
While stress is often inevitable thin in our life (we can’t change the world around us), it’s manageable. Luckily, there are lots of things to help provide stress relief and reduce your stress tension.
Start from the basic things to help deal with – for instances; get enough sleep every night, do regular exercise, avoid smoking, and learn time-management skills!
