Cinco exercícios para os 30% que nunca se exercitam


Cerca de 30% dos britânicos nunca se exercitam, de acordo com o instituto de pesquisa Mintel. Mas o que as pessoas podem fazer para ficar um pouco mais em forma sem ter gastos adicionais, inconveniências ou constrangimento?

1. Suba e desça escadas

O exercício não precisa levar uma hora inteira. Esforço em ritmo acelerado por períodos curtos pode trazer muitos benefícios. A guru da boa forma Rosemary Conley sugere a subida e descida de escadas em casa mesmo. “É de graça, não leva muito tempo e exercita o fôlego”, diz ela.

2. Faça a prancha

Rosto virado para o chão, braços posicionados em forma de L, pernas firmes e glúteos alinhados com o resto do corpo (sem levantá-los para o alto). A prancha, detestada por muitos, é o melhor exercício para melhorar as condições físicas do centro do corpo, segundo Elliot Lake, gerente da Bootcamp Pilates. “Fique na posição por 30 segundos, três vezes pode semana e isso será uma grande ajuda”, diz ele. A região do centro do corpo é composta por músculos profundos que conectam as partes de cima e de baixo do organismo, incluindo o estômago, as costas, os quadris e glúteos. O exercício tem benefícios para o estômago, ajuda a melhorar a postura e exercita a coluna. “A ideia é que você tente chegar a um minuto na posição, três vezes por semana”, diz Lake.

Esse exercício tem como objetivo fortalecer a musculatura anterior do tronco colaborando para a estabilidade da coluna lombar. Em relação a diminuir a barriga ele tem um efeito positivo quando associado a uma dieta que restrinja a ingestão calórica e a um programa de exercícios que elevem o gasto calórico. Dessa forma diminuir o perímetro abdominal depende de dieta, exercícios físicos e força de vontade para manter-se com essa atitude de forma regular e bem planejada.
O tempo nessa posição vai variar de acordo com a pessoa que estiver fazendo o exercício. Se a parede abdominal for muito fraca eu costumo começar com 3 séries de 10″ e vou progredindo o tempo de acordo com a evolução do aluno. Tem aluno que fica até um minuto, mas geralmente são atletas e necessitam desse estímulo. Aluno normal costuma evoluir até 4 séries de 30″ com uns 30″ também entre os exercícios para recuperação.

3. Passe o aspirador em casa

“É trabalho pesado e você vai suar”, diz Conley. “Lavar o carro também é uma boa, assim como cortar a grama”. O benefício, segundo Conley, é elevar os batimentos cardíacos.

4. Escreva o alfabeto com sua perna

Esse é um outro método usado por Conley. “Sente-se, levante uma perna e desenhe um alfabeto imaginário no ar com um dedo do pé. Depois faça isso com a outra perna”, afirma. “É fácil porque você pode fazer o exercício assistindo televisão, por exemplo”.

5. Programe um alarme

“Caminhar um pouco sempre é muito útil”, diz a médica Lauren Sherar, um estudioso de atividades físicas e saúde pública da universidade Loughborough, no leste da Inglaterra. “Coloque um alarme em seu telefone para ficar em pé por cinco minutos regularmente. Ou então dar uma caminhada pelo mesmo período de tempo”, diz. Pesquisas médicas revelam que ficar sentado por muito tempo diminui a expectativa de vida. Já ficar em pé regularmente melhora a saúde. “Ficar em pé por cinco minutos a cada meia hora é algo totalmente possível”, afirma Sherar.

…And Plushenko again :)


I still hadn’t read this interview! (the original can be seen here – I just copy stuff here because these kinds of articles normally don’t stay online for many years…)

Ice King Evgeni Plushenko

Interview: falling princes, quintuple jumps, 5 quads, Putin and big ideas

Evgeni Plushenko, the most decorated figure skater of the century, talked toHealthyLivinG Magazine from Olympic Sochi shortly after his dramatic withdrawal from the individual competition to the standing silence of his adoring fans who had filled up the Iceberg Skating Palace arena only to cheer him on his way to the judges’ board where he declared the resignation the very minute the music to his short program was about to start playing.

“This is the strangest night I have seen in my 20 years in figure skating,” his foe/admirer Evan Lysacek commented for NBC. This exclusive interview was initially scheduled after Plushenko’s much anticipated free skate would conclude the competition—but things took an unexpected turn after Evgeni announced his retirement from amateur sport. For the third time.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: We have received a lot of questions from the readers about your health; please tell us about it.

Evgeni Plushenko: I had a sharp pain in the area of my recent back surgery during the warm-up [to the short program], so I could not skate and had to withdraw from competing. Several injections and procedures have been done since and I feel much better now. I will be heading to visit Dr Pekarsky in Israel who performed the surgery to do imagery diagnostics and figure out what happened, hoping to recover within a month to begin training and start skating again.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Are you still planning to go on tour?

Evgeni Plushenko: I don’t think currently about my tour, which was planned half a year ago. I am focusing on treatment and, should everything be fine, I will be touring.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Will we ever see your quadruple jump again?

Evgeni Plushenko: I don’t know if I will compete again but for exhibitions I don’t need a quad. I am planning to produce sophisticated programs with 3.5 axel and many other triple jumps but don’t really know now about the quad.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Strangely enough, the US sport community showed a much more balanced reaction to your withdrawal with even your bitter rivals praising your achievements. It is Russia where some quite brutal comments were heard and picked up by the Western press.

Evgeni Plushenko: I fully agree with you. I did not expect such a reaction, but I feel it is a small number of people compared to those who support me and understand what I have done for figure skating. They understand that a year ago I could hardly walk and had to learn skating and jumping anew. This is how our people are. But in truth there aren’t that many and they do not deserve attention. People with wrong, negative approaches can be found in any country; the majority praises the fact that I earned one more gold medal in the team event. I am receiving an enormous amount of positive tweets, texts and letters.

Evgeni Plushenko talks to Vladimir Putin at Sochi Olympics after Team gold medal

For me of highest importance is that our President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin said that I have done everything possible and thanked me. Very important also that Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko said everything was great. People need to understand that an athlete is also a human and before saying negative things one must put themselves in his shoes, consider his long career in the sport and, in my case, going through 12 surgeries.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: What do you think happened to the lead skaters in the free programi after you left?

Evgeni Plushenko: You better ask them. Maybe too much excitement or anticipation of a win. All three medalists are very strong athletes—Yuzuru Hanyu, Patrick Chan and Denis Ten showed the highest class all season; they are the future of figure skating. I deem Yuzuru to be a genius with a very bright future. Being only 19, he may skate in many Olympics and win them. Patrick Chan is a master of the blade, a very good athlete. Flinched and got a little nervous, I’d say.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Was it your stimulating company that kept them from falling before?

Evgeni Plushenko: I have noticed that when I compete everybody competes against me and, when I do not, they compete with each other. On all the tournaments I skated, somehow guys skated at a very high level; they didn’t make such mistakes. With my leaving the sport guys thought they should be fighting each other because they all are of approximately the same level, instead of doing the job of which they are capable.

HealthyLivinGMagazine: There were signs of an exciting future for the sport—skaters such as Kevin Reynolds doing three quads in a program.

Evgeni Plushenko Vankouver Olympics jumps over podium

Evgeni Plushenko: I am very grateful to those athletes who, after the Vancouver [Olympic Games], started to jump quads and included several [in their programs]; if we recall Vancouver, I alone did quads in both the short and free programs. It is very important to me that figure skating moves forward specifically in quadruple jumps.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: What is next in figure skating?

Evgeni Plushenko: After some time they’ll learn all of the quadruple jumps; five quads in a program will become the norm, and it will be a real thing, true figure skating, as figure skating is not only an art, a ballet, not only beautiful skating; first of all, it is a sport; that’s why men’s figure skating must include quadruple jumps.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Are you saying that the human limit is a quadruple axel?

Evgeni Plushenko at Vancouver Olympics Free program

Evgeni Plushenko: I think there are no limits in sports. They always move forward. First, the athletes will learn all quads, then 4.5 quads, and in some 50-70 years there will be a quintuple jump, I’m sure. Maybe in 100 years, but it will happen. There will be combinations of two quads. I know because I was training a 4.5 axel and two toe loop quad combination. If I jumped it, I think guys will jump it too—after some time maybe. There will be different athletes, different gear, lighter boots and blades. One hundred years ago folks used to jump a single jump; now a quad is a norm. Just give it time.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: And spine disks—will they will be lighter too?

Evgeni Plushenko: [chuckles] Well, medicine moves forward too, so lighter spine disks are a possibility. I am looking at my son, how fast his development is—running around and speaking at only one-years old—and understand that these new people who are being born now are already different from us; and all of that, including quads, faster spins, will be a new normal for them. Though there will be injuries and surgeries still.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: After you retire Maxim Kovtunii becomes the front line of the Russian men’s team. How can you help him? What do you have to say to him?

Evgeni Plushenko: Everybody is obsessing with Maxim Kovtun, but there are also Sergei Voronov and Konstantin Menshov. We have a system in Russian figure skating in which the selection is based not only on nationals but on the European Championship as well in which Maxim took only fifth place. Sergei Voronov was second and Konstantin Menshov came third. So some very good prospective athletes are staying. A youth no less worthy than Maxim Kovtun stays, too. The story with Maxim is just inflated. I respect him very much, good fellow, good athlete. But people keep asking why he wasn’t picked for the Olympics. Well, suppose he would have participated—he would have taken ninth or tenth place and that wouldn’t have been good for his career. Maxim is not ready yet for big competitions. Yes, he wasn’t all that bad in the Russian nationals but his performance wasn’t a masterpiece like the others—Patrick Chan, Denis Ten and Brian Joubert—these are great athletes.

Evgeni Plushenko and Maxim Kovtun Medal ceremony on Russian Nationals December 2013

Maxim needs to focus, train and prepare for the next season—for the World Championships, provided he will pass the selection process. Last year Maxim was 15th or 17th in the World Championships, which is why we had only one opening for the Olympic Games. After finishing the free program in the team event I felt back pain and said that with this trauma I could be replaced. But when they tried to reach Maxim they couldn’t find him.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: When exactly did this happen?

Evgeni Plushenko: Right after the free program in the team event. Later it was said that Maxim got sick and couldn’t come to Sochi. So I was forced to skate further.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Many athletes in the Soviet Union, even after reaching elite levels in their sport, were destined to misery upon retirement. You are perceived here in the US as royalty, belonging to the highest circles of the modern Russia. Do you have any plans on using your powers and influence to improve the situation with retired athletes struggling in Russia today?

Evgeni Plushenko drinks champaign with President Vladimir Putin

Evgeni Plushenko: This is politics and I do not get involved. We have government officials, select officials who know the laws and think about the country. They will better answer this question. But, generally, life conditions are becoming better, not for everyone of course. Let’s just look forward and everything will be all right. I don’t want to even touch this, as this is politics. My life is figure skating, sport, and I will do everything in it—raise athletes, create champions, open my skating school—as I have vast experience. I think those who retire should be offered some good terms. I think it all is ahead and will be done.

HealthyLivinGMagazine: HL readers have been asking whether you have any plans in business.

Evgeni Plushenko: Many ideas, very big ones that everybody will hear about. We are doing a very serious project I would not want to reveal yet—but within a year or so you will hear of it.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: What are your plans to fulfill your artistic potential?

Evgeni Pluschenko Vancouver Olympics 2010 free program

Evgeni Plushenko: I spent so much time doing figure skating so do not exclude that I will be training young athletes. I will be touring the world and have an idea to open a figure skating school.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: What is the price for high achievement in figure skating?

Evgeni Plushenko: Big sport is not fitness class. While I do know some athletes who are competing without having surgery yet, in big sports it’s very rare that a high achieving athlete does not experience injuries and surgeries; parents must be aware of the physical endurance involved and fact that injuries are not excluded.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Tell us what a child athlete should expect to go through?

Evgeni Plushenko: Sports achievement involves complex training with a strong emotional component: multiple trainings a day not only on ice but general physical enhancement including running, gym, special exercises, choreography, stretching and dedication—having nothing in life but the sport—constantly regimented and disciplined. If we are talking about a professional athlete, it is pretty much living for the sport alone.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Is it worth it?

Evgeni Plushenko: It’s a matter of a personal choice. I do not regret my life. I rejoice and take pride in my very long run in figure skating and being in the arena since I was 13.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Not everyone is as gifted—most won’t climb that high, despite the effort.

Evgeni Plushenko: It’s the fate of God; of course, not everyone will be an Olympic champion but one needs to work hard and fight for it.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: You wouldn’t mind should your children choose it?

Evgeni Plushenko: To win Olympic Games?

HealthyLivinG Magazine: To pay the price.

Evgeni Plushenko: Both my sons will be athletes, maybe not in figure skating though because I want to get to know new sports and live it through with them: soccer, hockey, golf, tennis, definitely not figure skating as we have enough skaters for one family; we need to move forward. I would like to dedicate my life to my kids, live through new sports with them and try to grow them into champions. If they face a life like mine with injuries so be it. I will support them. The reason why I had so many injuries and surgeries is that in my time we had no doctors, rehabilitation or proper understanding of these issues. We only trained hard and had no rehabilitation whatsoever. Now I see it all and if my kids will have doctors, rehab programs, massages, saunas, pools, they can have a very long career in sports and minimize the traumas.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: I suppose athletes from developed countries might have had better conditions but none lived in sport as a top achiever as long as you.

Evgeni Plushenko: I don’t really know their conditions. Today we have everything. I am very pleased how the sport ministry takes care of us these days: we have doctors, rehab programs, pools—everything we need. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case for most of the time I trained. If I had these earlier, many of my injuries and surgeries would have been prevented.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Did the new team competition somehow change the dynamics within the Russian squad?

Evgeni Plushenko cheering on team event at Sochi Olympics

Evgeni Plushenko: Not really. Communications within the team have always been great, no intrigues; everything is fine and respectful. By the way I am grateful to all the athletes who skated with me—Americans, Canadians, Japanese—who all came up to me and said I’ve done a lot for figure skating, that I am their idol and it was an honor to skate with me. For me it was very important, and I was delighted.

HealthyLivinG Magazine: Do you have plans for those athletes?

Evgeni Plushenko: Yes, I have plans and offers and I will consider them. I am open to communication and I have a scheme how to prepare those athletes. Of course I have.

iGold and silver medalists each failed two jumps in their free program.

iiMaxim Kovtun wasn’t picked by the Russian Figure Skating Federation to represent the country despite winning over Plushenko in the Russian nationals on December 27, 2013. The decision created controversy and criticism inside and outside Russia.

My Plush post


UPDATE: see my post about the upcoming Plushy shows!!!! 😀

Evgeni Plushenko, Johnny Weir, Irina Slutskaya in Snow King

PS – after I wrote this post, I saw this video: These days everybody who’s following the Winter Olympic Games at Sochi, and more specifically the figure skating competitions, have inevitably been talking about Russian skater Evgeni Plushenko. After the Vancouver Olympics I wrote a post on him because back then I was revolted that he didn’t get the gold. It was unfair (and I wasn’t the only one who thought so!), and I still haven’t changed my mind about that. In a few years, who’s going to know who Lysa…what was his name, again?? Oh yeah, we never heard of him much before those Olympics, and we won’t hear much again, because he’s the greatest skater, really 😉 (not :P) Anyway, today, 4 years later, here I am, writing again on Plushy, and again it’s unfair that he didn’t get a medal in the individual male competition – but this time it was nobody’s fault, which is a relief. Also, he DID get a gold medal this time, doesn’t matter if it was a team medal because he got the 1st place 🙂 Check it out: Patinação artística: Confira a estreia de Evgeny Plyushchenko | Sochi 2014 | band.com.br Russo Evgeni Plushenko faz apresentação na patinação por equipes | Sochi 2014 | band.com.br Captura de Tela 2014-02-14 às 01.22.29 It’s past midnight and I’m tired, so I won’t be writing too much – maybe afterwards I’ll edit the post and write much more, though 😉 hahahahah All I have to say right now is that, yes, we felt somewhat frustrated when we saw him leaving the ice, but more than that, we felt very concerned about his back. I mean, it’s not just ANY injury, it’s his spine, he has 4 screws there! Extremely dangerous to force anything in this situation… I’m sure nobody was more frustrated than himself. However, he was wise enough to stop pushing himself beyond the limits of his body, just to try to beat another record or try another medal. He knew all those people were watching him, his parents, his son, his wife, his coach, his choreographer, his friend (violinist Edvin Marton) and all his fans, and yet decided to quit. That must have been a very very tough decision to make, especially considering it was meant to be his goodbye to competitions. I’m very proud of him for having tried anyway, he was in pain since days ago and yet kept practicing and today he went to the warmups and I’m sure he would have skated if he thought it was possible without damage. Ok, I’m done talking now 😛 I’ll just post a few articles that I’ve seen these days (TONS of them were posted on Facebook): A fan (Angela Nicole Rabatin) wrote: “I don’t think any of us knew exactly what he was risking by doing all of this… I’ve been saying for years that he was risking his health far too much… but I couldn’t help admiring his fighting spirit, his determination to do whatever it took to make his country proud and innovate his sport. I was relieved in 2005 when he got surgery, but I didn’t hear what kind it was until later that year, and then realized he STILL had the torn meniscus, and continued to skate with it until 2007! Naturally that caused him to have MORE problems with his knee in 2009-2010, but American media didn’t report that. And still, I did my duties as a fan and encouraged him, cheered him on, and I think I got swept up with the fantasy that he was still all right after all these years of beating his body up so much. He put himself in danger for his sport, for his country, and for us… I think we should all do something special for him to acknowledge that”. http://www.healthylivingmagazine.us/Articles/398/ (“evgeny plushenko’s olympic formula: 2 quads+8 triples+4 spine bolts+12 surgeries= 4.5 min free program to watch – 2 times Olympic champion 4 times Olympic medalist 3 times World champion 7 times European champion 10 times Russian Nationals champion”) http://www.nbcolympics.com/news/yevgeny-plushenko-revered-and-divisive-ends-legendary-career “He was doing things that no one had really seen before,” said Paul Wylie, the 1992 Olympic silver medalist. “He was doing a Beillmann when he was 15 and just whipping off triple Axels and starting the quad so early. He was a wunderkind. “If you describe him in one word, it’s ‘legendary,’” said 1998 Olympic champion Tara Lipinski, an analyst for NBC. “He’s always been one of the best. He has reached that status, particularly with that short program in the team event, which was so superb. We always saw him perform under pressure and land the big jumps; he’s in a category of greatness no doubt.” http://www.opinionspost.com/keeping-plushenko-dare/ “(…) another figure skater, Gillis Grafström of Sweden, won four medals in four different Olympics in a row, 3 gold and 1 silver but figure skating then was far from the level it has reached in the past three decades, during which many more jumps were added to athletes’ routines and quadruples started to become the main goal for those who wanted to be on top. The first skater to land a quadruple jump was the Canadian Kurt Browning in 1988, for the record. Let’s go back to the Russian superstar Plushenko. What’s the big deal, you might think? Well… The thing is that Evgeni Plushenko is 31 years old. In figure skating it means that one who is considered a young man in the real world is kind of a Fred Flintstone among athletes. A male figure skater is considered old when he turns 25; Plushenko participate in his third Olympics at the age of 27, winning the silver medal. Or, as he may say, losing the gold. Therefore, not enough to give up yet. When he took a break after his victory in Turin 2006, the level of mens competitions suffered a sort of devolution due to the absence of athletes who, like Plushenko or 2002 Olympic champion Alexei Yagudin, were capable of landing this most difficult jump. Without these men around, competitors didn’t feel the need to perform quads and things seemed to be go backwards instead of improving. All of this happened until Plushenko decided to return to the ice in Vancouver. At that time the judging system apparently placed more emphasis the clean and absolute perfection of elements instead of difficulty. Spins, transitions, and preparation before a jump became the main goals for skaters who began to focus on these elements instead of reaching new jumping records. So, as a result, Lysacek’s clean performance won the gold”. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/olympics/wild-card-plushenko-emerges-as-another-threat-to-chans-golden-dreams/article16845352/ “Competing in his fourth Games, the 31-year-old stepped on the ice during the figure-skating team event and showed the present-day Plushenko hasn’t lost any ground to the one who racked up a gold and two silver medals at previous Olympics. From the moment the towering Russian landed his first quadruple jump, seemingly soaring higher in the air than any other skater in the building – and doing it almost with a smirk on his face – it became a problem for Canada’s Patrick Chan, and all the other skaters. “People ask me, ‘How are you? How do you feel?’” Plushenko joked. “I am still alive.” It was an understatement of sorts. Alive and kicking. Alive and jumping.” http://www.nydailynews.com/…/russian-hero-plushenko… “I said to myself, ‘You must skate, you must skate,'” said Plushenko, who won the silver medal in 2010, behind Evan Lysacek. “But on the triple lutz in warmup, I stepped out and it felt like knife. The second triple flip I did not feel my right leg.” And so it was over, all done for an expressive, balletic skater who had been working with his coach, Alexei Mishin, since the age of 11. Plushenko had a sore back coming into the team competition, performing through the injury to share in that gold medal. He aggravated the back problem on Wednesday morning during practice on a difficult jump. Mishin suggested, in un-PC fashion, that the only competition Plushenko can enter in the future is the Paralympic Games. The skater confirmed he was surely done with amateur, Olympic-style skating and would hit the show circuit. “God is saying, ‘Enough skating, Evgeny,'” Plushenko said.” http://www.healthylivingmagazine.us/Articles/408/ “I didn’t feel my legs after the second triple axel [in warm up], and almost cried when I had to withdraw,” said Evgeni Pluschenko after he approached judges’ panel during warm up right before the individual competition. Evgeni said that after falling at quad-triple combination at training yesterday he was unable to do jumps during today’s morning practice. “I tried and tried but I couldn’t, it was too much pain,” he said. “I tried again during the warmup, but it was too much pain.” “”Unfortunately I had no choice. Used four painkillers yet they didn’t help. But I still went to the end, tried my hardest, and went to the warm ups. Hoped that something magical would happen. It did happen in the team competitions, and I’m very happy about it. But now for now I need to rest, recover, and continue my figure skating career as businessman or showman. Very sorry to my fans, but I want to stay a healthy man. Walk and move normally, because life doesn’t stop here.” said Plushenko” 1623608_604452982982512_1954410808_n1622636_604452892982521_1962688055_n1000961_604452726315871_224618613_n1235211_604452479649229_1010681437_n Captura de Tela 2014-02-14 às 00.55.28 And now my selection of Plushenko videos 🙂 But my favorite video of his: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15UjaPyaccw&list=PLB243B80EAC990A13&feature=share Interview (2010 – about his comeback from retirement): Life story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cB2PDzouzSY

Saiba como evitar afogamento infantil, a 2ª maior causa de morte de crianças


O verão está chegando e nada como uma piscina ou praia para se refrescar. Só que os adultos não podem descuidar nem por um segundo dos pequenos nesses momentos de lazer. O afogamento infantil é a segunda maior causa de morte de crianças de 1 a 14 anos, segundo a ONG Criança Segura  _a primeira é o trânsito.

“A principal dica de prevenção é a supervisão por parte do adulto de forma constante e atenta em todo lugar com água”, diz Lia Gonsales, coordenadora de mobilização da ONG Criança Segura.

Engana-se quem pensa que o risco de afogamento existe apenas em piscina, praia, rio ou represa. Lia diz que crianças pequenas podem se afogar em baldes, bacias, banheiras e até mesmo no vaso sanitário (mãe relata susto que teve com a queda do filho na piscina; leia).

“Bastam três dedos de água para uma criança pequena se afogar”, diz Lia. Entende-se por pequena as crianças de até 4 anos.

Segundo ela, as características físicas de crianças deixas faixa etária contribuem para afogamentos domésticos em lugares como balde ou banheira com água. “A cabeça é a parte mais pesada do corpo e elas ainda não têm muita habilidade motora para levantar com rapidez e sair dessa situação de perigo.

Mas as crianças maiores também devem ficar sob supervisão de um adulto enquanto estiverem na água _a ONG recomenda essa atenção até os 14 anos.

Lia diz que os mais velhos podem se submeter a situações de risco por terem a falsa ideia de independência, até mesmo aqueles que sabem nadar ou estão aprendendo. “Não é recomendável que a criança ou jovem fique sozinho na água. É preciso orientá-lo e alertá-lo sobre o risco de certas brincadeiras, pois ainda não tem noção do perigo.”

Levantamento da Criança Segura com base em números do SUS mostra que 103 crianças foram hospitalizadas por afogamento de janeiro a agosto de 2013. Desse total, quase metade (48) tinha de 1 a 4 anos. Por tipo, a maior ocorreu dentro de piscinas.

Apesar da maior parte das hospitalizações decorrerem de afogamento em piscinas, acidentes em águas naturais lideram os motivos de óbitos: 424 dos 1.115 casos registrados em 2011 _dados mais recentes.

Prevenção

Para evitar afogamento dentro de casa, Lia recomenda que crianças de até 4 anos não tenham acesso a baldes, bacias, banheiras, tanques ou vasos sanitários. Em relação a esse último caso, a orientação é que a porta do banheiro esteja sempre fechada e que o vaso sanitário tenha uma trava de fechamento _equipamento disponível em lojas de artigos infantis.

Para quem tem piscina em casa, a recomendação é que ela seja fechada, ou seja, não deve ter livre acesso para crianças.

Outra dica é matricular as crianças em escolas de natação. “É importante que a criança aprenda a nadar a partir de 4 anos. Alguns pediatras indicam que esse aprendizado comece até mais cedo”, afirma Lia.

Segundo ela, o único equipamento considerado preventivo são os coletes salva-vidas. As boias de braço ou de sentar não entram nessa categoria. “Esses outros são para diversão, mas não previnem afogamentos.”

Em relação à prevenção na praia, ela diz que o melhor é conhecer o local onde você está. “E nunca, de jeito nenhum, deixar a criança sem supervisão.”

Minha companheira de Maternar, a jornalista Giovanna Balogh, escreveu em 2011 sobre cursos de natação para crianças. Leia o texto e veja fotos
