Some Health Gems for You! Don’t miss! :-)

  • We must have our keyboard placed at a lower level than the level of the table, so that undue pressure on our shoulders can be avoided and pain prevented eventually. Rotating-shoulder-exercise helps too!

  • People who breathed in coconut fragrance in a small pilot study at Columbia University saw their blood pressure recover more quickly after a challenging task. The researchers speculate that inhaling a pleasant scent enhances alertness while soothing our response to stress.

  • It just slows down your metabolism if you skip one of your meals, especially breakfast. It can never put you in trimmer frame if your metabolism slows down. Instead it accumulates more fat in the problem areas and you tend to look bulky. Eating smaller meals 5-6 times a day with adequate hydration is the trick to actually lose FAT, as such a meal-pattern accelerates your body's metabolism and helps it perform optimally without causing fatigue!

  • People whose diets are rich in potassium may be less prone to high blood pressure. Besides reducing sodium and taking other heart-healthy steps, eat potassium-packed picks such as bananas, cantaloupe, and oranges.

  • TULSI leaves have many health benefits! Research suggests that this Ayurvedic herb, also called holy basil, may help manage levels of the stress hormone cortisol, helping to boost your mood. 

  • Is your energy lagging? Though it may be the last thing you feel like doing when you're tired, exercise -- even a brisk walk -- can be more effective than a nap or cup of coffee at fighting fatigue.

  • It is found that even mild dehydration can enhance stress levels and optimal water intake can help one remain jovial!

  • A study states that people who wrote down three good things that happened to them each day for 6 months reported to have much improved outlook on life! 

  • Studies over 30 years at the University of Illinois state that - "The highest levels of happiness are found with the most stable, longest and the most contented relationships"

  • Hot, spicy foods containing chillies or cayenne pepper trigger endorphins, the feel-good hormones. Endorphins have a powerful, almost narcotic, effect and make you feel good after exercising.
