Selfie Mania – Gliding from Charm to Harm?

The “selfie” fever is on! People flood social media pages with selfies. This oft-annoying behavior shows increased levels of narcissism over time. Narcissus is a figure from Greek Mythology who was so impossibly handsome that he falls in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Even the lovely nymph Echo could not manage to tempt him from his self-absorption. Narcissus’ name lives on as the flower into which he was transformed and as a synonym for those obsessed with their own appearance.

Age-ophobia – Grow Old, Don’t Get Old

As I look at my mother, I am filled with pride, she has never ever used make-up, her skin even after she has touched 80, looks flawless, although she has gradually wizened and her hair has turned grey. The respect she earns for her looks is ‘incredible.’ Aging of the face and loss of sharp shape is but inevitable. Why go under the knife when you can age gracefully, advocating surgical procedures to retain youth, is that a good option after all?

Every parent knows that eventually scrapes and bruises are going to happen, and you have to have your first aid kit ready to go for when your little rock star limps back to the van.

The Anger Code – Not the Quiet and Sweet Side, Not the Fun and Crazy Side, But the Side You Never Want Others to See of You

Anger is just an emotion. It’s normal, even healthy to become angry, but constant, uncontrollable anger can prove to be harmful. Uncontrollable anger can prove to be disastrous, you might find yourself facing problems in every corner of your life: at work, in personal relationships and in overall quality of your health. Deeply embedded painful emotions associated with anger seldom get communicated in our rational minds. Reason takes a back seat. When in anger, all that a person ‘says’ or ‘acts’ are under a rage full of intense, immediate outburst. At that point of time, one can’t separate emotions from thoughts. In the midst of this turmoil one loses all sense of reason. The choice we have about our anger is the same choice we have about so many other aspects of our lives: will we turn toward our anger and seek to better understand it, manage it. Or will we let our habit energy of living, thinking and acting “in anger” and “from anger”dominate our lives, actions and the impact we have on others?

Be a Frugal Eater – Add Life to Your Years Rather Than Just Adding Years to Your Life

We all know people who eat like horses yet are as skinny as rakes, while others seem to pile on the pounds just thinking about food. At the heart of the difference is metabolism, the sum of the chemical reactions occurring in the body at any given time. Clearly there is more to it than a simple balance between calories eaten and calories burned through exercise. Regardless of whether your metabolism is fast or slow, our bodies are designed to store excess energy in fat cells. So if you eat and drink more calories (energy “intake”) than your body expends (energy “output”) you will gain weight. On the other hand, if you eat and drink fewer calories than are burned through everyday activities (including exercise, rest and sleep), you will lose weight.

Veda, Upanishad and Bhagwad Gita all deals with involution and evolution.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicone-based fiber used in construction for insulating buildings, car brakes, insulating hot water pipes, coating for paint and tiles, mixed in adhesives, cement, etc. This mineral easily breaks down into thin invisible particles which when inhaled can negatively impact the lungs.

Several women suffer from Vaginal dryness, a factor that significantly affects one’s sex life negatively. Vaginal dryness means insufficient lubrication to enhance that smooth, pleasurable sex that results in moans and groans thanks to the pleasure being exhibited.

Vaginal dryness rears it’s ugly face thanks to a decrease in the production of the hormone estrogen which plays a great role in as far as moistening the vagina is concerned.

Do Not Dwell on the Past – Embrace This Simple Truth

It really makes no difference how extravagant our hopes and plans for the future may be – sometimes, reality does not play ball and we find ourselves wandering along a path we were not anticipating. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of constantly pushing ourselves to overhaul our lifestyles – we try to start everything over again and improve our finances, health, fitness, love life and routines all in one foul swoop – but this does not always work out, nor is it always the key to finding happiness. Happiness is often found right under our noses – we’re often blinded by our constant need to chase new dreams, and improve our current circumstances, to the extent that we become completely oblivious to the fortune and the happiness we already have within us.

Expression in Expletives – Are They Useful?

Mark Twain wrote, “There ought to be a room in every house to swear in,” because “it is dangerous to have to repress an emotion like that.” We learn early in life that profanity is to strong feelings what blaring horns are to a tornado– the body becomes conditioned to physically respond to it. “Your pores open and you start sweating. Your heart rate increases. Your pupils dilate,” says Benjamin Bergen, who teaches classes about profanity at the University of California, San Diego.

Side Effects of Removing Your Appendix – It’s Not a Useless Organ

The appendix is an unimportant small pouch or a tube-shaped structure that is attached to the large intestine. It is situated on the lower right side of the abdomen.

Ignite a Smile – Change the World

What is a smile? The longest word in the English Language is “smiles” because there is a mile between the first “’s” and the last “s.” Of course, I am kidding 😉 A smile can capture and hold you like nothing else can.

Something too simple yet brimming in hope!

The Old-time ‘Snake Oil Salesman’ is Making a Comeback – Is the Internet to Blame?

We’ve all seen the Old West movies and TV shows in which a well dressed gentleman rides into town plying his wares and touting a “Miracle Cure” elixir guaranteed to relieve all health maladies. Invariably, the tincture is nothing more than cheap, watered-down whiskey mixed with something sugary to make the “medicine” go down easier. In the long run, the only benefit is a rip-roaring drunken night, followed by a massive hangover.

Amazon Fake Reviews Give Offshore Fake Companies an Asymmetrical Advantage Over American Small Businesses
