Taking a bath makes you happier than going for a run

What do these three things have in common? 
Going to the gym, taking a bath and enjoying a hot cup of tea.

Put simply: each activity can offer some respite from a bad mood. It turns out there’s a pretty good scientific reason why and it’s got to do with our core body temperature.

A recent study concluded that taking regular afternoon baths attributes to a moderate but persistent lift in mood among people with depression.
What’s more? The effect was greater than that of hitting the gym or going for a run – a more established mood booster.

A group of researchers conducted, an albeit tiny in Germany.
They assigned 45 participants with depression with the task of soaking 40C water for up to 30 minutes and then wrapping themselves in blankets and hot water bottles for a further 20 minutes or taking 40 to 45 minutes of aerobic exercise twice a week.

After 8 weeks the participants who were taking baths averaged a six-point elevation in their mood while those completing exercise scored a three-point increase, on a regularly used depression scale.

The theory goes, by increasing participants’ temperatures at night their cardiac rhythms which affect every organ, including the brain, are strengthened and synchronised. Previous studies suggest that depressed people have a biochemistry, which is associated with flatter variation levels in their temperature.

It’s important to note that those who participated in the study did so, in conjunction with their doctors’ ongoing treatment and advice.

So don’t feel guilty for wanting that decadent bathe to relax and soothe yourself.

What helps to boost your mood?
A hot bath or a run? 

Food swaps to a healthy diet!

Going on a diet to lose weight or to get healthy doesn’t automatically mean cutting down on food or giving up something for life. Most of the time, it all boils down to making a healthy choice.

Here are some food swaps that you can do to reach your health goals:

  • Swap your sugary, calorie-laden soda for water or other sugar-free options

A 12-ounce can of Coke shockingly has around 9 ½ teaspoons of sugar, which in Coke’s list of ingredients, is hiding behind the name high fructose corn syrup.
This is way above what the American Heart Association has recommended, which is no more than 6 teaspoons a day for women and up to 9 teaspoons for men. So drop the coke and reach for plain water and see the pounds drop.
A study has shown that people who switched to water were twice as likely to lose 5% or more of their body weight.
There are also other health benefits to drinking water.
But if you’re one of those who don’t like the bland taste of water, go for soda water and add a bit of flavour with a little cranberry juice or a slice of lemon.

  • Swap your regular butter for ghee, nut butter and other spreads

Butter might have a bad reputation among some groups for being a health villain, an unhealthy ingredient that should be avoided at all cost.
However, it’s actually margarine, which is chockfull of trans fat, that should be avoided. While butter might have saturated fat, full fat butter that’s produced from grass-fed cows has vital nutrients like Vitamin K12 and butyric acid, which helps keep our colon healthy. The trick here now is choosing an organic butter or its healthier alternatives, like ghee.

  • Bake better brownies with black beans

Make your pastries or baked goods healthier by adding black beans. Black beans can minimize the blood sugar spikes people experience when eating sweets.
Using black beans in brownies, for instance, won’t affect the chocolate taste. But it will add much needed protein and fiber.

  • Replace tortillas with spinach

Put a paleo spin to your favorite fajitas recipe by ditching the tortillas and using spinach instead. You still get to enjoy the meats, spices, peppers and onions that make fajitas great, but you won’t miss the carbohydrates and calories the tortillas bring.
On a related note, this swap can also be used on another Mexican favorite – the burrito.

  • Swap pasta for vegetable noodles

It’s hard to imagine living in a world without pasta. Luckily, you don’t need to give it up as you can make noodles out of almost any vegetable and even some root crops with the help of a good vegetable spiral cutter.
Once you have one, you can start making your own squash or zucchini spaghetti.
There are a wide range of sauces that you can do, like sesame ginger sauce or ginger almond butter sauce for your veggie pasta.
You can even go all out and make your own pesto bacon sauce.

To achieve a healthy diet is by making healthy food choices.
This is not just about choosing fresh produce over frozen ones, but also the kind of produce you pick.

Keeping healthy or losing weight is not always easy.
But with a little know-how, some creativity and these healthy food hacks, you can be on your way to a healthier and happier life.

Do Diet Pills WORK?

Losing weight fast with minimal effort is the ultimate dream for most.
As such, it’s hard to resist the appeal of Diet Pills that promises instant results.
There is no such magic however, as these pills are usually dietary supplements or non-prescription drugs.
Majorly, these are only just vitamin supplements.

There are lots of people out there who need vitamin supplements alongside healthy exercise to keep them fit and healthy. Hence, it’s important for us to know what vitamin pills are all about, and why we should take them or leave them.

MULTIVITAMINS

Multivitamins are dietary supplements that helps supply the body with the nutrients it needs to function, grow, and regulate body processes. Now multivitamins come in many different brands and forms, each with their own composition of nutrients and minerals. However, they generally include 13 vitamins, 16 minerals, herbs, fatty acids, and amino acid to improve the health of the individual that takes them.

If you are interested in trying them out, you can always find them in pharmacies, supermarkets, large discount stores and online shops.

As you go to purchase them, you will realize that they come under different names, like: multivitamins, multimineral, multiples, multis, diet pills, vitamin pills or just vitamins and are found in the form of capsules, tablets, powders, liquids, and chewable gums. But fret not, they all serve generally similar purposes.

Note:

  • Although most pills are taken once or twice a day, never assume. Always read the instructions for recommended dosage.
  • Always buy from a reputable manufacturer to avoid fraud, which is possible because dietary supplements are yet to be regulated.
  • The nutrients found in vitamin pills are obtained from real foods, which makes them safe and healthy but they are not a replacement for proper meals!

Who are these pills meant for?

While multivitamins are produced for the consumption of the public, there are those who need it to supplement their diets with the vitamins and minerals they need. These groups include:

Vegetarians: these people suffer the risk of having vitamin B12 deficiency  as a result of their choice of food. Vitamin B12 (along with some others) is a nutrient that can be obtained only from animal foods and would be hard for vegetarians to obtain them from their choice of diet.

Elderly: When it comes to those who are advanced in age, the use of supplements becomes more advisable to the constant decline of certain Vitamins in their body as they age.

Pregnant and Breastfeeding Mothers: Though they do need multivitamins to supply to them some much needed nutrients, it is more advisable for pregnant ladies and new mothers consult a doctor first for a prescription, as some pills can contain nutrients that can cause birth defects.

Can Multivitamins Be Harmful?

Yes. Multivitamins can be harmful if:

  • You fail to follow the prescribed dosage. This is due the possible presence of fat-soluble nutrients in the product. Unlike water-soluble nutrients that can be easily expelled from the body if you take too much, fat-soluble nutrients are difficult to expel and thus intake beyond the prescribed dosage can lead to toxic effects.
  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or a smoker and you use multivitamins that have high amounts of vitamin A. For those who smoke, it could increase your chance of having lung cancer; for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, it could lead to birth defects.
  • If you take multivitamins have not been subjected to stringent quality checks.
  • If you take multivitamins with high mineral content, as some minerals like iron could do more harm than help the body in large amounts.

Finally, despite how advantageous you might think multivitamins to be, it is more preferable for you to have healthy eating and living habits to start a healthy diet and regain better fitness.

In the long run, healthy meals are more important and a better guaranteed way to maintain good health.

Smile, be happy.

A cynical interpretation is that smiling faces are a fake show of happiness designed to captivate or deflect.
And of course, a smile can sometimes cover up one’s true feelings, such as nervousness, anger, or sadness.

Excessive Expectations and Hopes

Westerners grow up on a steady diet of wanting, expecting, and hoping for more.
The media and advertising fan the flames of our desires.
It seems that we’ve become increasingly preoccupied with achieving some final, far-off goal rather than enjoying the journey. We keep postponing living our lives rather than relishing the present moment.

It takes a strong sense of self to not succumb to the belief that we’ll be happier with more things. We work hard to buy a big house and then work even harder to make the mortgage payment and property taxes.
If someone has more than us, we may become envious and perhaps crave the sense of belonging and connection that comes with “keeping up” with the latest trends and gadgets.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make our lives more comfortable.
People in developing countries and even in the West would like to have a reliable washing machine or better smart phone.
There’s no shame in this.

But when is enough enough?

Can we find a middle path between wanting more and having gratitude for what we have?

Can we find a way to hold those desires lightly and not allow them to interfere with appreciating what we have?
A greater sense of freedom comes with accepting our limits.
We’ll be happier as we develop the art of living in the moment rather than constantly leaning into the future.

A spontaneous smile springs from an inner sense of feeling content and connected.
If we’re feeling deprived or neglected, it’s not easy to offer a generous smile to people we encounter.
We’re more inclined to smile when we’re experiencing a sense of inner peace.
Being at peace with ourselves is only possible when we’re living in the present moment, rather than being preoccupied by what we don’t have.

Yet in cultures that value kindness and family, there seems to be a sense of community and connectedness that prevails despite challenges.  Healthy attachments and values of kindness and gentleness contribute to allowing an authentic smile to emerge from the depths of their being.

Spirits are always buoyed when an authentic smile drifts my way.
Smiling is contagious.
And it feels good to smile.

Research has even shown that faking a smile can make us feel better. Smiling reduces stress and lifts our mood.

Here is an exercise from Vietnamese meditation teacher Thich Nhat Hanh that you might try to boost your smiling capacity and mood:

As you breathe in, say to yourself:
Breathing in, I calm body and mind.

Then, as you breathe out, think:
Breathing out, I smile.

I invite you to be more mindful of when you smile—or don’t smile.
Perhaps you can find a little more generosity in your heart to offer a warm smile to people you encounter.

You might just find that smiling offers a wonderful gift to yourself—the gift of enjoying more moments of being present and connected—and that smiling offers a wonderful gift to others, as well—it’s contagious!

Cut Down Snacking at Work!

Are you one of those who likes to munch snacks while working? Well, welcome to our squad!

We all are victims of meaningless snacking at work during the odd hours.

Be it the ever-so-friendly vending machine or just boredom, we all are guilty of consuming extra calories even when we are not hungry. Result – we tend to add weight and feel uncomfortable in our own bodies.

Not anymore! Here are some ways which would help you in cutting down your habit of snacking at work.

  • Have an amazing breakfast

One of the reasons why you might tend to continuously munch something at work is probably because you skipped your breakfast or didn’t take lunch.

Thus, make it a point to consume regular meals. Further, ensure that you consume fruits in between the meals to ensure that you are not binge eating while working.

  • Brush after you take lunch

Toothpaste works as a great weapon against constant munching in office. This is why it is often recommended to brush your teeth after lunch at work. How does this help? When your mouth retains the minty smell and freshness of the paste, you would not want to consume something sweet or chocolaty. It acts as a distraction and ensures that you do not go around snacking post-lunch in the office. You could experiment with different toothpaste flavors and tastes to bring in the desired results.

  • Chew sugarless gum

Sugarless gum can also have the same effect as a minty toothpaste. When you are chewing a gum, you are less likely to eat snacks. There are two reasons behind this. First, your mouth is already in motion and you do not need anything else to keep it active. This reduces your craving.

Second, since the mouth is feeling fresh and minty with the gum, this satisfies your cravings. Thus, keep a sugarless gum handy and chew whenever required.

  • Keep healthy snacking options        

When you are hungry at 3 p.m. and badly want to consume some snacks, what do you do? You look inside your workstation drawer to see if you have something to munch on. If not, you go and eat the pretzels from the nearby workstation and that satisfies you for a while. But, what if your drawer had something healthy to eat, like some dry fruits or bananas? You would not go to the next workstation at all in this case, right? Thus, the best way here is to keep the snacks stacked up in your drawer. This would keep you away from the unhealthy food!

  • Take proper protein

As a matter of fact, consuming protein-rich foods will keep you satiated for long. This will prevent you from consuming any junk food at work. Wasabi peas are a great snack and are also rich in protein. Further, you can also keep a jar of almond butter in your cabinet.

Your Turn

These healthy foods would not only satisfy your food cravings but would also limit your calorie intake. Any other ideas? Do share with us in the comments.

1. Oranges

Oranges are powerhouses of Vitamin C and are quite effective in dealing with the symptoms of cold and flu. This might come as a surprise to you, but in addition to helping you restore the glow on your face, oranges also help you fight against cold and flu.

Well, statistics don’t lie! Thus, consume blueberries and eliminate the risk of suffering from cold and flu.

3. Broccoli

Broccoli should be the first kitchen ingredient that must be added to your diet if you are seeking protection against cold and flu. Why? This is because broccoli enhances the immunity.

Consuming vitamin D in any form daily makes you less prone to fall for any upper respiratory tract infection in winters.

6. Apples

An apple a day could keep cold and flu away!Apples contain phytochemical antioxidants which act solid in fighting against chronic diseases like cold and flu and are helpful in developing the immunity system for the future, thus preventing your body from cold in future.

7. Tomatoes

Tomatoes is another food rich in vitamin C which also makes them a great food to eat. A medium-sized tomato contains around 16mg of Vitamin C. It is a great ingredient to cure a cold and flu and helps you strengthen your immune system.

If you are wondering why vitamin C is helpful in boosting immune system it is due to the fact that it contains phagocytes and t-cells, whose mere presence in the body helps your immune system to fight against pathogens and in return acts as a shield against cold and flu.

Thus, roll up your sleeves and stay healthy with these hacks!

5 Tips on Selecting the Right Outfit for Gym

When it comes to choosing the right outfit for the gym, it can be tough to decide. With seasonal weather and ever-changing fashion trends, it is difficult to keep pace with fitness fashion industry.

As a matter of fact, we would highly advise you to focus more on comfort, and less on fashion. This is perhaps because what you wear while working out can impact your body in a range of ways.

Thus, let’s get started and have a quick look at how to select the right outfit for the gym.

Take a look!

  • Is it comfortable?

It is highly recommended to wear clothes that let you move and don’t constrict you. Simply put, choose fabrics that allow your skin to breathe.

Further, pay attention to the fitting of the clothes because outfits that are not too tight and fit just perfectly will let you move in all directions. However, this doesn’t mean that you should choose baggy clothes as those will come in your way while you exercise.

  • Can it be layered with other outfits?

Make your wardrobe versatile by including outfits suitable for both hottest and the coolest months. Avoid overspending as seasons change. You can do this by layering your outfits during winters. You can start with a t-shirt or a top and then add a pullover over it. For wind-proofing, cover yourself with a windbreaker. Further, try shopping in off-seasons to save your money.

  • Is it flexible enough?

Try purchasing clothes that provide you enough flexibility like gym shorts, sweat pants, track pants or yoga pants. Such flexible cloths will let you stretch your hands and legs easily during workouts. Along with flexibility, do take care that the clothes are breathable enough.

  • Are the chosen outfits in line with your daily exercise regimen?

                                                                                                                                                              Make sure that the outfits you buy are a perfect fit for the activity you are performing. You should always make a trial by performing activities you intend to do in order to gauge if it is the right fit.

  • Do you need any advanced features?

If you like to keep pace with technology, it is important to mention about a new range of outfits that are available today. Outfits today come with in-built treatments that fight the microbial action on the skin due to sweat. This helps you in fighting the body odor.

Further, you can also choose the outfits that provide ultra-violet protection to fight sun’s harmful UV rays. Similarly, gym outfits with permethrin, that is an insect repellant, are also available in the markets today. Such clothes protect you from all the ups and the downs you while exercising in the gym.

Your Turn

The more frequently you exercise, the more important it is for you to wear the right kind of clothes. Keep yourself as comfortable as possible with the perfect clothes.

So, do a proper inspection of the clothes before buying and select the right one for yourself.

Success Is In Your Attitude

Who doesn’t want to be successful? We all do.

But, it seems, that at the end, it is your attitude which determines your success.

A study conducted at Harvard showed that a person’s attitude is often the deciding factor if they will be successful or not. Your attitude contributes to 85% of your success. So, it is quite necessary that you have the right attitude and the correct mindset.

Like many things in life, attitude is temporary.
It is something that you can always change.

You can always judge if your attitude is a boon or a bane.
If you feel that your attitude isn’t helping you move forward in life, then it is the right time to change it.

Importance of Having a Positive Attitude

Having a positive outlook on life is extremely important.

A woman who has a positive outlook on life is generally liked by everyone.
This outlook is usually attainable if the woman has a positive attitude in life. Like having a positive outlook, there are many benefits of having a positive attitude.

  • It helps you reach your milestones.
  • It helps you become a favorite among co-workers and makes you instantly likable.
  • You start seeing the good in everything.

You would agree that a happy attitude is better than a high IQ.
People who are successful do not always have a highly intelligent quotient, but they have a happy attitude.
This allows them to conquer their fears, be more self-dependent and be more confident.

If we’re to talk about a few very successful people, there are many things that are common among them.

  • They all are confident.
  • They never lost hope
  • They are happy

All these things are achievable in life only if the person has the right frame of mind and the right attitude.

Positive Attitude vs Negative Attitude

Having an unfriendly or a dull attitude would never make you a social person.
People with a dull attitude are seldom successful and usually crib about their problems in life.
And no person likes to stick with a person who always complains about their problems.

Everyone faces at least one problem daily, but the people who are happy and have a positive attitude never whine about their problems.
No matter how big the problems are, a person would never crib about it because they know that crying over something won’t solve it.

Success doesn’t mean being utterly rich or being the most famous.
It means that you’re content. You might be working at a day job and you can be successful at it.
Success just requires the right attitude, not money or fame.

Here are some ways by which you can achieve a happy attitude and be successful.

  •  Be happy.
    A happy mind is always fresh and reduces stress.
  • Stay Motivated.
    Many times, life throws hurdles at you.
    It is best that you stay motivated in those hard times and look for a silver lining and hence not lose hope.
  • Mediate.
    Meditation helps reduce stress and keeps the body and mind rejuvenated.
    It helps you boost the morale and helps you in developing a positive attitude towards life.
