10 Tips To Healthy Eating

 
Experts agree the key to healthy eating is the time-tested advice of balance, variety and moderation. In short, that means eating a wide variety of foods without getting too many calories or too much of any one nutrient. These 10 tips can help you follow that advice while still enjoying the foods you eat.
  1. Eat a variety of nutrient-rich foods. You need more than 40 different nutrients for good health, and no single food supplies them all. Your daily food selection should include bread and other whole-grain products; fruits; vegetables; dairy products; and meat, poultry, fish and other protein foods.

2 Simple Words That Might Save Your Relationship

There’s a very simple thing you can say to boost the happiness in your relationship, but you may be saying it more frequently to your barista than to your boyfriend.
0620-woman-hugs-man-with-flowers_sm.jpg
Yep, it’s a simple “thank you.” New research out of the University of California, Berkeley says that feeling appreciated influences how you act in a relationship, and how much you want to stay in that relationship.
Researchers asked 50 undergraduates, who had been in relationships for approximately 15 months, to fill out nightly questionnaires for a week about their relationship. The questionnaires focused on appreciation--how appreciated they felt and how appreciative they were toward their partner. On days when people felt more appreciated, they were more likely to report feeling more appreciative toward their partner the next day.
Nine months later, the participants were given another survey. Those who reported more appreciation were less likely to have broken up and were even more committed to each other at the time.
The researchers say that it’s easy in a lot of relationships to take your partner for granted, and to forget why you chose to be with them. It’s an easy cycle to fall into, so break it by focusing on what’s good in your relationship and by acting kindly towards your guy.

Bad Skin Habits


I have heard the same-old skin care tips one more time: wear sunscreen, have a derm check your moles once a year, exfoliate twice a week, I am going to scream… As beauty veterans, I am even familiar with the more obscure tips, like patting your moisturizer into your skin instead of rubbing it, or applying urine on your face to fight acne. Bad Skin Habits not only mess up your skin, but some can even wreck your health.

1. Drinking your water instead of eating it. You’ve heard the eight glasses a day rule a trillion times, we know. But it turns out your body doesn’t retain a lot of that water, since it goes right through you during your frequent bathroom breaks. Cells can more easily absorb the water in food since it comes along with other nutrients that the body needs to absorb. As a general rule, start eating more fruits and vegetables, which have higher percentages of water than processed foods and meat.

Water! A Natural Remedy For Sound Body And Mind

ABOUT five pharmacists, each with 20 years working experience, attended a seminar. These pharmacists were amazed when it was said that even babies had to be fed with water if they were to be disease-free and grow normally. One of them gave this illustration.
One woman who had a medical doctor as daughter reported her (the daughter’s) resolve not to give water to her newly born-baby girl. One day, this grandmother came to her wit’s end as she could not bear it any longer due to the fact that the infant grand-daughter had started falling ill persistently.
