5 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs

You may notice that in coffee shops, the usual Singapore-style breakfast includes a cup of kopi, some kaya toast, and a soft-boiled egg. But more than a delicious-looking addition to breakfast, eggs are among the most nutritious food in the world. Here, then are some of the health benefits we get from eating eggs.

1. The case of cholesterol

It is true that eggs are high in cholesterol. One whole egg contains 212 mg of cholesterol, more than half of the recommended daily intake that is 300 mg. Because of this, eggs have earned a bad reputation since the 1990’s. Later on, though, it has been found that the high cholesterol from eggs did not necessarily increase cholesterol in the blood. Plus, eating eggs is also a great way to increase good cholesterol.

2. Reduces the risk of heart disease

In relation to the point above, we should recognize that consuming food high in saturated fat and trans fatty acids can have more detrimental effects to the heart compared to the cholesterol in our diet. Additionally, eggs contain a good amount of selenium which functions as an anti-inflammatory to reduce the risk of cardiac arrest and heart disease. Also, bad cholesterol comes as small and dense particles. Consuming an egg actually changes those particles to larger LDL, which is basically related to lower risk of heart disease.

3. Contains quality protein

You may have heard of some bodybuilders consuming 2-6 raw eggs a day, and for good reason. Eggs are not only high in quality protein, but they also contain the right ratios of amino acids essential to the body.  Proteins are typically the building blocks of the human body. They are used in muscle growth and repair, and also produce tissues and molecules for other functional purposes in the body. In the case of bodybuilders though, it is still recommended to cook the eggs, not only for safety but also because the heat will allow the protein to be more easily digestible.

4. Choline

Is it the first time you’ve heard about this? Don’t worry a lot of people don’t know it too, but choline is actually an essential nutrient for brain development, muscle control, and nerve and memory function. Because of the lack of knowledge about it, most people don’t get enough of such an important nutrient. Fortunately, eggs are great sources of choline.

5. Protect the eyes

Many people don’t expect it, but eggs also have benefits to our eyes. The egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin which are nutrients that slow the age-related degeneration of our eyesight. They are anti-oxidants that stay in the retina to protect the eyes against harmful wavelengths of light, like those in our smartphone, computer, and TV screens.

Ways to Deal with People You Don’t Like

Singaporeans are among the hardest working in the world. Even so, many individuals get built-up stress from work. Among the common workplace issues one may face, interpersonal conflict and communication problems are the ones that normally increase anxiety and stress. Whether at work or at home, here are some ways you can deal with people you don’t like.

Recognizing the fact that everyone is different

You may have already heard the line “nobody is perfect” a million times, but of course, it wouldn’t be said again and again if it wasn’t true. Recognizing that people have different beliefs and values will make it easier for you to understand them. When they start to display unpleasant behavior and disagreeable actions, you will at least know how to approach them calmly and smartly. With this, you will see that the person you don’t like isn’t necessarily bad, he/she just has different beliefs and values.

Treat them equally with others

If by chance you’ve earned an enemy, it would be very helpful in resolving the issue if you remain fair and unbiased towards them. If they feel an atmosphere of hostility from you, they will most likely reciprocate those feelings and the problem will only grow bigger. If they see that you treat them just as well as you would others, they might consider their actions better next time. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to agree with them completely, you only have to be consistent with civility.

Focus on yourself

It’s easier to change your own attitude and behavior than to expect someone to do so. When you focus on controlling your feelings and stop comparing yourself to others, you can rise above all the conflicts and disagreements. However, this doesn’t mean that you should stop listening to the opinions of others. You’re only giving yourself time to reflect on your frustrations to be able to overcome them without venting on others.

Let things go

Recognize that there are things simply not worth your time and attention. If you think that an argument with a co-worker is only going in circles, just let it go as it’s only wasting your time. If a person keeps bugging you, ask yourself how engaging with this person will affect your work. Supposing you can take advantage and it can benefit you in some ways, by all means, do it. Otherwise, it would be better to just lay off of it.

Don’t take everything personally

You may not notice but sometimes what we hate about others is actually something that we don’t like in ourselves. Plus, what causes us to dislike others only starts from a certain misunderstanding. You might get criticized and told off, but think of these as ways to be better rather than taking them personally. Others’ opinions are typically feedback to your own actions, so use them for self-improvement.
