Laughter is indeed the best medicine!!!

Let me take you back to your college days…….when you would laugh out loud with your immediate close friends all the time!! You would love the company of your friends because of this equation or repo of finding humour in everything around.

Do you feel these strong energy vibes amongst the youngsters? Yes, because they love to laugh and have a desire to conquer this world!! Laughter is indeed the best medicine. It does hundreds of favours to your body while you feel entertained and blissed while laughing out loud.

No wonder, why laughter clubs have gained so much popularity and is increasingly becoming a business. So, what does laughter actually do to us?

1. Relaxes the body: Just a few minutes of laugh can relax your entire body. It reduces your stress and muscle tension.

2. Improves circulation to heart and brain: The blood circulation is enhanced greatly to your heart and your brain when you laugh. You would notice that you have a better attention and grasping of things when you are happy.

Due to increased blood flow, any heart and cardio-vascular problems are pushed away from you when you laugh out loud.

3. Releases Endorphins: Endorphins are the evergreen feel-good factors of the body and they are released when you laugh out loudly. These endorphins ensures the well-being of the body and it elevates the mood greatly.

For those who are in pain, will feel reduced pain due to endorphin secretion.

4. It keeps the depression away: People who are jovial and share a good laugh with others every day and less prone to fall into depression. Laughing out loud has become too rare these days and people rather live life too seriously.

The secret to healthy living is very simple and requires us to be absorbed in present completely and to enjoy it to the fullest – a secret well known but seldom followed.

5. It improve the quality and longevity of life: What will you do with your success and money if you are not happy? I meet thousands of people every day who are extremely wealth and successful but are striving to live their day satisfactorily.

Laughing out loud changes your perspective towards life. When you are happy, things automatically start falling in place as you start doing everything with a happy heart. Also, the universe love people who arlaughinge happy in life and it brings more moment of happiness in their lives.

When you live your life with a light heart then of course you are much healthier, positive and active.

6. It avoids conflicts: Sharing a good laugh with your foes can add a new positive perspective to your equations. Confrontations, resentments, negativities are challenged when you choose to take things lightly and share a good laugh with people around.

So, lets pledge that we will look for opportunities to be happy, laugh out loud and to spread happiness all around. After all, who wouldn’t want to be happier, healthier and admired for just laughing out loud!! Thank You😊

Unmet mental needs: How to help yourself?

There are many mental ailments that make you crippled to handle your life smoothly. Some of the major ailments include stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and the most important is depression.

depression

Each one of us suffers from depression at some point in life or the other. Depression is common in youngsters, oldies, teenagers and even children.

Of course, it may take a few days to a few weeks or even few months in serious cases to overcome depression. The remedy suggested is to seek psychological counselling or to depend on anti-depressant pills.

Yet, do you know with a little effort you can improve your mental health to a great extent and can say bye to depression forever.

How to work on yourself?

  1. Stop dreaming and start working: You feel depressed when you have some big dreams in life that are still unrealized. We lose out on patience and desperately want to turn those wishes or dreams into reality. 

Of course, dreaming surely gives a positive direction in life to become successful but just dreaming has never helped any one. You must dream to become Richie-rich, slim, making your dream house, heaving a great joyful family or getting your dream job but the efforts also need to be as large as your dreams.

It is better to convert dreams into your goals and then target your goals with a solid action plan. It helps you to come out of that illusionary world of dream and it helps you to stay grounded and realistic about your goals.

What most of us forget is that the power to become successful lies in the present and not in future. We are losing our precious present in dreaming about future. No, no, no! don’t get me wrong!!! ……there is nothing wrong in having dreams but it is wrong to be dreamy through the day and not work towards making your dreams come true.

If you have made the most of your present than the future will bow down to you and will be yours forever!!

If you want to dream than dream right before going off to sleep. These dreams manifest through the night to turn into realities. This is the Universal law that helps us to manifest dreams into realities.

But, when you are always dreamy about your future without making the right efforts, than you tend to be more depressive for the fact that your dreams look far-fetched to you.

  1. Turn people, relationships and jobs perfect: This world is a world of perception. You will never have control over the outside world which involve the people, the situations, relationships or jobs. But, what is in control is you yourself. 

Often, you are caught finding faults with your relationships or jobs or life. But, nothing works as per your wish. But, the one who looks for positivity in every situation is the real conqueror of the world.

The more you get pissed with things around, the more they influence you negatively. The only way to lead a peaceful and happy life is to look for positivity in every situation.

This is one basic mantra to success, peace and living a contended life.

  1. Start discovering yourself to know what a wonderful being you are: You feel depressed only when you have given the right to others to make you feel depressed.

 When you depend on other’s opinion is when you get hurt the most. And, who looks for others opinion – somebody who is not sure about himself/herself.

So, why not look inside instead of looking at this fickle world outside. Try to self-introspect yourself to discover your immense powerful strengths. Once, you have discovered your wonderful powers which are there in each one of us then there is no stopping.

There is nothing in this world that can depress you if you have the power within yourself. You will become fully thick-skinned and will turn a deaf year to what others will say.

This in real sense is a true victory as you have learnt to live this life to the fullest.

I hope, these three points made sense to you and you understood what I was trying to communicate. Please feel free to start a dialogue or to post in your comments as I would be very happy to receive them.

Thank You and keep smiling 😊

 

Is Air Conditioning bad for you?

Of course, scorching heat of summers and high degree of humidex makes it a compulsion to go for air conditioning all day long. Yet, certain researches believes that air conditioning may not be the best choice to beat the heat. The ill-effects may amount to dryness of skin, fatigue, contracting air-borne diseases, dryness in throat, etc.

Dr. Mark Mendell, Epidemiologist with California Department of Public health, suggested that asthma and allergies are the most common disorders due to use of air conditioning. He further suggests, that a poorly maintained or shoddily designed air conditioner can have millions of bacteria breeding in it. It reflects that polluted air of the AC’s may significantly affect your health. Though, the impact may vary depending on how your body would react to each class of bacteria.

However, there is a contrasting observation by Dr. Michelle Bell, Prof. environmental health at Yale University, that a well-maintained AC can indeed save your life from contracting many dreadful diseases. Dr. Bell suggests that air borne pollutants are kept at bay through use of air conditioners and thus one is at lower risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

Despite a dilemma of whether air-conditioning is good or bad, there is a lot that is yet to be explored. But, certainly there are prominent health hazards that are known to have been caused due to air-conditioning.

  1. Fatigue: Imagine yourself shivering on your chair while sitting in office through the day! Won’t it impact your body, which has to work hard to maintain the normal body temperature? A lot of people also experience chronic headache sometimes due to over exposure to cold air.
  1. Skin Dryness: The worst side-effect of air conditioning is the dry cool air that is pumped out. The dry air hits our mucus membrane making our throat and nose dry. You may feel constant irritability in nose and throat due to dry mucus lining and it increases the probability of contracting flu and other respiratory diseases. Also, you would feel your skin and hair dry.
  1. Heat Intolerance: With the comfort of cold controlled indoors, you increasingly tend to become intolerant towards harsh outdoor heat. Your body fails to accommodate the wide fluctuating temperature variation between indoor and outdoor. This substantiates the increased number of cases reported of heat strokes and dehydration in summers.
  1. Allergies: Surprisingly, there are both positive and negative aspects reported in the case of allergies. Dr. Clifford Bassett, MD founder and medical director of Allergy and Asthma care of New York, suggests that anybody with indoor allergic tendencies may be benefitted with use of A/C. Air conditioning filters out a lot of moulds and pollens from the air thus minimizing the allergic tendencies of a person with indoor allergies.

However, on the other hand, Dr. Ferastraoaru, MD Physician, Allergy and Immunology, Montefiore Health System, suggests that using A/C can sometimes worsen the allergies. This is due to the fact that AC’s may carry the germs from cat, dog and dust which gets regularly circulated through the cold air. So, it is really important to have air-purifiers installed with A/C’s to avoid any allergic episodes happening to you and your family.

  1. Spreads infection: A/C’s circulate the same air all through the day in a closed room. So, the germs from coughs, sneezes, etc. get mingled with the air and the same air is circulated throughout. This infected air is inhaled by everyone present in that room causing infection to spread further. 

There is an air-borne disease called Legionnaire’s that is communicated easily. This disease causes very high grade fever with pneumonia and spreads very fast if you are sharing the air-conditioned room with person infected with it.

  1. Worsens the prevailing medical conditions: If you are suffering from illnesses like arthritis or any other bone related disorders, exposure to air-conditioned environment may worsen your body pains.
  2. .ac

What can you do to overcome the harmful effects of air-conditioning? 

Air-conditioners absorb germs from the surroundings which gets circulated in the air , so you need to dust your indoors regularly to keep the germs away. Moreover, using air-purifiers can help you get the best quality of cool air in the longer run. You must also use humidifiers with sensors to maintain moisture levels which will beat dryness of skin.

The best suggestion is to try to avoid using air-conditioner in good weather conditions, if you can. Always carry a  preference for breathing fresh air that will give you ample oxygen and will be beneficial for your health. One more tip that needs mentioning here, is to keep yourself hydrated by improving your water intake. In air-conditioned rooms, there is no sweating happening so you would not feel thirsty often. You would have to force yourself to drink enough water to stay hydrated.

They are so-caught up with their wrong assumptions that they are scared of experimenting and exploring their style. And sadly, they are never able to wear what they always wanted to. But, but, but! With smart dressing even bulky people can look into diva like super figures.

3 sure shot ways to get silky shiny hair

 

silky hair

 

I have personally had a real bad hair phase for almost 5 years. The reason was ignoring the basic nutrition and the basic efforts for a healthy life. Honestly, it does not take much to gain a bouncy, silky, smooth luscious hair.

So, I thought of sharing some easy ways that worked wonder for my hair. Let me tell you that I had a complete dry frizzy hair which would not settle without oiling post shampoo. Also, the hair would look very rough and dry and it would make me feel conscious all the time.

Going on outings with this kind of skin and hair was little challenging and I would have to devote 20 minutes to even 40 minutes sometimes to make my hair look presentable.

Anyways, without stretching it further let us see what helped me gain my smooth silky hair back:

1. Oil five minutes before shampooing: Often I get so tired by the end of the day that I avoid oiling my hair and this had become a practice for past few years. As a result, my hair would be completely devoid of moisture post shampoo and would become drier and frizzier.

Now, I just oil my hair 5 minutes prior to washing them. Trust me it has worked wonders. My hair get the desired moisture and surprisingly my hair are smooth and silky even after regular wash.

This will also help if your hair or skin type is oily and you don’t need to oil your hair pre-wash. Oiling also provides your hair with nutrition and a little massage helps a better blood circulation of blood.

2. Iron and Protein intake: I eat a lot of protein and iron that was lacking in my diet earlier. I compulsorily eat a bowl full of dal with either dates, pomegranate, carrot or apple to supplement my iron content.

This has surely contributed towards making my hair stronger and healthier.

3. Stay active: I have started doing some kind of physical activity as a part of my daily routine. I prefer walking to my milk dairy or vegetable shop nearby. This has helped me in a big way. It has improved my overall health to a great extent.

That’s it! It does not take expensive shampoos or conditioners all the time to give you what you want. I am still on my old shampoo and hair products. But, a little change in my diet and an improved physical output has surely helped me in a big way to look the way I always wanted.

This is my practical experience and please feel free to drop in your comments on this.

This is a video link for you to check out some home remedies to work on your hair.

 

Negative thoughts: A deadly poison often ignored

Would you agree that negative thoughts are the most loyal companions of our minds. They knock in uninvitedly and stay with us till we deliberately choose to shoo them off.

These thoughts are always there in our sub-conscious mind and act like a slow killer.
Serious damages happening to you by your own negative thoughts

1. The first damage that is happening to you is that, you are inviting such negative people, incidences or experiences yet again in your life. The law of attraction plays a key role in designing our lives. The more you think about something the more you get that in your life.

Universe never judges your feelings as negative or positive, it just captures your vibrations that are emitted through thoughts and it brings them back to you as experiences.

2. It puts the body under stress. The body receives the signal to respond to unfavourable situation (stress) and starts preparing the body by releasing stress hormones. Also, the vital functions of the body are called off as the body diverts its attention to something which it reads as unfavourable (Stress). As a result, constipation, indigestion, mood swings, depression, increased heart rate, increase blood pressure, etc. are faced when you remain in stress over a period of time.

3. Negative thoughts take you back in the past. The only moment you ever live is present- the past is gone forever and the future is yet to come. You need to live and enjoy every single moment of your life and that is actually called as living a life truly.

4. Negative thoughts create a lot of sadness and fear. They make you forget the present and also harms your brain and body. On regular creation of negative thoughts, some permanent changes have been seen in the brain.

5. We often ignore the power of thoughts and let these harmful thoughts stay in our mind forever but there is immense power in thoughts. You will only realize the power of thoughts once you start believing in them. It can change your world to make it liveable, lovable, and happier.14508899214_d2e6eb2c65_b

Start meditating for at least 5 minutes in a day. Let silence or meditation be your new way of living and train your mind to think positive no matter what! You will start seeing changes in your world which you never expected.

God Bless!!

Chew your food 32 times: Easiest way to lose weight

Obesity is the biggest killer on this planet!! Yes, not diabetes, not smoking, not cancer, not heart-attack but obesity is indeed the biggest killer.

‘Obesity’ has many loyal friends like constipation, blood pressure, lethargy, lack of confidence, tiredness, etc. Often, people think of losing weight but hardly succeed in making any permanent significant change.

Most people think that the easiest way to go about losing weight is to join a gym and follow a strict diet which often lasts too long – may be for 15 days 😊. And, then you are back to square one!

Of course, losing weight makes you much healthier, more active and more confident about yourself, yet, you fail to lose any weight consistently.

So, here is a rule which if you follow will help you lose weight without doing much about it. Have you ever heard your grandmother saying that you must chew the food for at least 32 times before swallowing it?

Yes, this is the golden rule that will help you lose weight very soon without exercise or diet.

How chewing food for 32 times helps to reduce weight?

Chewing food for 32 times is the best way to reduce weight. This is how:

  1. It crushes the food and forms a thick paste which is easily digested and processed in the body. You start gaining weight when the food you eat is stored as fat in your body. When you don’t chew your food enough, it takes a lot of time to get digested and the body prefers to stores it as fat rather than digesting it.
  2. When you chew each morsel for 32 times, the process of eating slows down. It helps you to enjoy the food and satiate your taste buds better. This brings down random cravings for food through the day.
  3. The stomach takes 20 minutes to send a signal to the brain that it is full. When you eat and chew the food for 32 times, you take a good time to finish your food. And, the signal is sent right when you are eating which prevents you to over eat your food.
  4. The process of digestion starts when your food enters your mouth. By chewing the food very well you are greatly assisting in fastening up the process of digestion in your body. This increases the chances of fat thrown out from the body each time you eat food and chew it well too.

 

 

This is perhaps the easiest way to reduce weight that acts like a miracle to say the least. Don’t believe!! Just give yourself 7 days of time and come back to post in comments if it is helping you really. Thank you😊
