How are juices beneficial??

‘Souping’ is the new juicing!

This is about replacing your regular meal with soups that are packed with vegetable content that ensures you get the adequate vitamins such as zinc and iron. It may not be able to completely do away with juicing, but it’s still a good stand- in. One of the biggest benefits of souping is that it gives you the fibre that is lost in the process of juicing. A soup cleanse aims to detox the body by giving it a break from excess sugar and other dietary evils.

Setting up a juice bar

  • Plenty of diced veggies and fruits like orange, strawberries, apple, pear, blueberries etc.
  • Have add- ons like honey, mint leaves and brown sugar.
  • Place an array of interesting glasses, which adds fun to the serving.
  • Plenty of stirrers.
  • Keep accompanying bites like wheat cookies, low fat favoured yoghurt, salad etc in small plates and bowls.

* How juices benefit you??

1) Watermelon (hydrating) :- With the summer soon approaching, sip on watermelon juice – it’s 90% water.

2) Pineapple (infection fighter): – Pineapple juice has bromelain enzyme which prevents cough and cold.

3) Red grape juice (lowers blood pressure): – Drinking red grape juice daily helps lower blood pressure and cell damage.

4) Beetroot juice (helps digestion): – Beetroot has high fibre content and helps the functioning of the digestive tract.

5) Apple juice (liver cleanser): – Apples are alkaline and can effectively cleanse the liver.

6) Orange juice (vitamin C blast): – There’s nothing like orange juice to get a dose of vitamin C, which protects body from harmful effects of free radicals.

Nutrition….

Your food choices each day affect your health — how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future. Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health. Good nutrition is vital to good health, disease prevention, and essential for healthy growth and development of children and adolescents.

Good nutrition can help:

  • Reduce the risk of some diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some cancers, and osteoporosis
  • Reduce high blood pressure
  • Lower high cholesterol
  • Improve your well-being
  • Improve your ability to fight off illness
  • Improve your ability to recover from illness or injury
  • Increase your energy level.

Tips for eating well

Eat plenty of fruit – To get the benefit of the natural fiber in fruits, you should eat fruit whole rather than as juices.

Eat plenty of vegetables – Eat a variety of colors and types of vegetables every day.

Eat plenty of whole grains – At least half of the cereals, breads, crackers, and pastas you eat should be made from whole grains.

Choose low fat or fat free milk – These provide calcium and vitamin D to help keep your bones strong.

* To get the energy you require, you need to get the proper amount of:

  • Protein, which is needed to maintain and rebuild tissues such as muscles.
  • Carbohydrate, which is the body’s preferred source of energy.
  • Fat, which also provides energy.
  • Water, to replace water lost through activity

Yoga and it’s benefits

Yoga is a science as well as art of living. It works when integrated in our daily life. It works on all aspects of people: the physical, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual. The word yoga means ‘unity’ or ‘oneness’ and is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’ which means ‘to join’.

Yoga is about getting to know yourself, integrating all the aspects of ourselves and putting ourselves in control of our minds. The beauty of yoga is that it is accessible to everyone, as the session can be adapted according to each person’s level of fitness or state of health. For those who love yoga, it becomes a way of life. Yoga is for everyone.

Yoga includes Asanas (body postures), Pranayama (control of vital energy through breath control), Kriyas (cleansing practices), Meditation and relaxation to reduce stress and build self confidence.

Yoga is good for your posture and structural balance. It promotes flexibility and suppleness, strength and stamina, tones the internal organs, improves concentration, teaches you how to breathe more effectively, facilitates relaxation and calms the mind.

Yoga should not expect immediate results as yoga is a gradual, progressive process. However, some people may find instant benefit after their first session. Yoga is not a ‘cure all treatment’. It may be advisable to seek advice from your doctor before commencing a yoga class.

The world is thirsting

I’ve heard that people do not read as much today as they once did. Libraries don’t see as much traffic. Bookstores sell fewer volumes. Newspapers are struggling to sell subscriptions. I know folks who blithely admit that they haven’t read a book in years. We spend time that might be better used reading in the pursuit of other activities like playing computer games or posting on Facebook or tweeting our thoughts. We feel as though we know more about what is happening in the world, but we rarely bother to read up on the facts behind the headlines. Our knowledge is often limited to the sound bites that we accept from our favorite politicians or celebrities. We believe without going into depth on any topic, learning the history and all of the background. We rush around and rely on others to keep us informed. We have incomplete pictures of the world because even with all of the global communication at our fingertips we still operate in tiny bubbles that rarely give us the big picture. We readily believe whatever lines up with our own thinking rather than challenging ourselves by seeking to delve more deeply.

In spite of the nonstop flurry of headlines and commentaries our world is thirsting for knowledge and information. We are falling victim to propagandizing that is everywhere. Reading is the antidote for our malaise. Just as with exercise, the more we read the better our minds will be, particularly when we don’t limit ourselves to one point of view.

Acceptance = Positive Emotion.

When someone is doing something in a way I don’t want it to be done and I am not able to accept it, I become angry. However, when someone is doing something in a way I don’t want it to be done but I am able to accept it, I remain tolerant.

When i encounter uncertainty and i am not sure about how I am going to handle it, and I am not able to handle it – it causes fear in me. When I encounter uncertainty and I am not sure about how I am going to handle it, but I am able to accept it – I feel adventurous.

When someone has done something that has emotionally hurt me and I am not able to accept it, it develops hatred in me. When someone has done something that has emotionally hurt me but I am able to accept it, it helps me forgive them.

When someone is present in my thoughts but is not physically present and I am not able to accept it, I say ‘I am missing you’. When someone is present in my thoughts but is not physically present and I am able to accept it, I say ‘I am thinking of you’.

Thus by this the emotional equation is quite simple….

Something + Acceptance = Positive Emotion

Something + Non- Acceptance = Negative

Emotion.

So, it is not ‘something’ or ‘someone’ who is making me feel positive or negative, but it is my ‘acceptance’ or ‘non- acceptance’ of something or someone that is making me feel positive or negative.

So, the next time I find myself disturbed by a negative emotion, instead of asking who or what is disturbing me, I will examine who or what I am resisting (not accepting). I will replace resistance (non acceptance) with acceptance, and the negative emotion will turn into a positive one.

Emotional management begins by stopping to blame ‘something’ or ‘someone’ and starting to take the responsibility to respond to life with ‘acceptance’.

Types of people you and me will find at parties.

Hello guys…..wassup✋🏻 would like to discuss with you ‘Types of people found at parties“. So let’s begin.

1) The Clown:-

These are the types of people who are experts in cracking shitty and lame jokes. Literally they are just found in each and every corner of the party hall. ( It’s hard to tolerate them.😶)

2) The Hoggers:-

These are the types of people who are always found discussing about food items. As soon as they enter the first thing they want to do is go and check the menu list. ( Like come on parties are not always for eating food.) If you are foodie and you love food….rather make it at your home.😷

3) The Classy-Massy Prototypes:-

These are the types of people who make sure to look super classy and attractive wherein when they enter the party hall each and everybody literally slows down to just have a look at them from the top till the bottom. But, but on the other hand these are the only people who when open their mouth to talk they just fart (#their talks have no sense).

4) The Introverts:-

These are the kinds of people no matter how much you try but won’t get mix up with you at all. And at last you have to give up on convincing them.

5) The Drunkards:-

These are the kinds of people who just come to drink in the parties. You will always find them sitting in a corner with a glass of wine or maybe champagne (whatever it be) and then later on these are the people who can give you lots and lots of entertainment.

6) The ShowOffs (#TheKewlDudes):-

These are the kinds of people who try so hard to look so cool but end up showing off. I sometimes feel bad for them and feel like hugging them and saying ” It’s OK you look miserable so just stop your business of showing off dude”. But then sometimes i rather prefer standing there and laughing because i am an adult and I make good decisions.✌🏼😁

7) The Hitchhiker:-

There is this serious question i have with people as these are kinds of people who are always looking for the rides to home after the party. I would like to ask them “How did you end up there in the first place?”. Its like you reach someone to the party and you forget how to go back home as you are always looking for riders to drop you back home. Sometimes it’s not bad to drop someone home but until and unless that person is stuck up or unable to go home.

Alright guys, that were types of people you and me will always find at parties. See you soon with yet another interesting topic. Till then good bye.✋🏻

A relationship that matters you the most…

Hey guys, I am back with a new blog post. So let’s begin.

If you are happy in life right now, it’s not because everything about your life is necessarily going right, but because a relationship that really matters you the most is going great. On the other hand if you are unhappy in life right now, it’s not because everything about your life is going wrong, but because a relationship that really matters you the most is not going great. Blessed are those who have understood that they should be loving people and using things and not loving things and using people.

People keep faith and say relationships have to be nurtured and developed. They grow on their own accord. But when a relationship is left neglected, the expectations shakes the roots of relationships.

In a relationship, where there is substantial emotional reserve, mistakes will be tolerated and forgiven wherein the meaning will be understood even when communication is inadequate, your intentions will be appreciated even if you fall short in your actions. In all, the relationship will be good because you are considered good. And you are considered good because of the deposits you made to build emotional reserves in that relationship.

But on the other hand, there are relationships which are taken for granted where nothing works to nurture the relationship. Expectations continue to rise, but relationship still does not builds up on same continuity. The emotional reserves are overdrawn again and again.

In such a scenario, you will be held an offender for every work you speak; every move of yours will be judged; verbal battles and slammed doors will become regular occurrences; neither of your actions and intentions will be appreciated or respected. Such a relationship is like walking on a minefield- it blows up any time and many times.

Hence, I would end here by saying that always choose a relationship that helps you earn happiness in life and always matters you the most..
