Hows and Whys of Hydration

The formula to staying hydrated isn’t a complicated equation, but it does vary from person to person. It’s important to replace any fluid that’s lost throughout the day and night, and those variables can change drastically day-to-day and person-to-person. If you’re exercising in extreme heat or humidity, you’re going to lose fluid more rapidly than if you’re chilling at the movies. The color of your urine is a good way to determine your hydration status. If your urine is pale and straw-colored, you’re adequately hydrated. If it’s dark, like the color of apple juice, you’re low on fluids.

Sweat It Out

Dehydration can occur even if you’re not sweating. In extreme heat and cold, your body loses fluid very quickly without sweating at all. You may not realize it, but you even sweat when you’re swimming! Spending the day frolicking in the pool isn’t a preventive measure. Athletes need to be even more aware of dehydration risks. Athletes tend to sweat more overall than people who aren’t as physically fit, and they may push themselves longer and harder, causing even greater fluid losses.

Drink Up

Drinking is the ONLY way to rehydrate. Pouring water

Its dimension is more. To understand that dimension and to get the maximum benefits of yogic kriyas, one should learn it from the perspective of ancient yoga treatises. For this very purpose, one should learn classical yoga treatises.

Yoga was taught by Gurus of ancient India without accepting any consideration or with a meagre consideration which was affordable to students of those times. An amount affordable to the student was accepted by Gurus. The amount or Guru Thatchana (the amount given by the student) was decided by the student and not by Gurus. Money was not the motive in those days.

The system of Guru-Sysya (Teacher-disciple) has been tampered with now. It has become a lucrative business nowadays. Yoga has been institutionalised which was not the case earlier. The leader of

Healthcare Quality Methods

Facilitate Adoption

It’s not enough to introduce new ideas to clinicians and discuss case studies. The reason is that it won’t motivate them to follow the improvement initiatives. It’s better to learn the quality improvement theory via hands-on improvement work. In other words, it’s applied to the real clinical setting. Also, identifying important areas for clinicians and develop the platform for betterment can help make the adoption much easier.

Defining Quality & Reaching an Agreement

If we agree on what quality means in a certain context, we can establish the measures and then collect data based on them. Also, the Institute of Medicine made a quality framework based on 6 aims for the systems for healthcare. However, the most important of them is the one that is patient-oriented. In other words, it stresses the provision of care based on the values and needs of an individual patient. Also, it ensures that the clinical decisions are made based on the patient’s values.

The definition of quality refers to what the patient thinks is important. It’s to make sure that the patient is getting the best care possible for their illness.
