Seeking Advise :How to make life interesting, thrilling and exciting?

A friend of mine asked me this question few days back which I want to share with my readers. “I am 40 year old, mother of 7 year old baby boy, happily married. I work full time in a local marketing firm; the work is not very interesting still it gives me a decent earning.

Despite having multiple roles in my life I am short of excitement, entertainment, motivation in my life. Every day is a copy of previous day; I can predict the routine of upcoming day without any problem. The factor of change, the factor of surprise is totally missing. Although I must accept that factor of Stress, tension and hatred is also meeting, for which I must be thankful to God. This clam and control life often frustrates me and I don’t know what to do, to add some spice in it”.

So what my readers would like to suggest this very dear friend of mine. Do you think this some sort of useless anxiety that has been self imposed or you actually believe that she need help? Even, if she need help what sort of help is required by her:

A psychiatric help

A doctor help

A friend help

Help from a family member

Or help from his immediate family like her son or her husband

Weight Loss Inspiration - A Real Story

Are you looking for a little weight-loss motivation? Look no further! Check out the true story of a Dad loose out 40Kg weight in just 2 months to save life of his daughter. Let's read this inspiration story from huffingtonpost

In trying times, dads will go to the ends of the earth -- performing feats of strength and kindness -- for their children. The latest heroic example comes from Eduardo Camargo, a man who, Good Morning America reports, lost more than 40 pounds in just two months to save his baby girl.

When the Illinois-based father of three found out that his youngest, Jazlyn, would need a liver transplant, he knew he wanted to be the donor. According to GMA, she was diagnosed with biliary atresia April of last year. Without the surgery, her bile would build up and lead to liver failure or death. Even with two surgeries, doctors told Camargo and his family that the 5-month-old needed the transplant to save her life.
But there was one problem. Camargo was diagnosed with fatty liver disease, which Web MD defines as having fat that makes up more than 5 - 10 percent of the weight of your liver. This condition made him ineligible to be a donor at all.
According to The Chicago Sun Times, he hadn't worked out in years. However, at 210-pounds, Camargo joined a gym and started running, up to 6 miles in an hour. He also followed a strict diet of veggies, water, and portion control.

"There were days when I thought my knees would give out and all I wanted to do was stop, but I would think of my daughter and I would keep going," Camargo told GMA. And his work paid off. In just two months, Camargo slimmed down to 180 pounds with a fat percentage of less than 2 percent in his liver.
In November of 2012, the then-7-month-old Jazlyn got her transplant. When the surgery was finished, Camargo wanted to see his daughter right way. He walked 10 laps and then collapsed, just to prove to his nurses that he was healthy enough, The Sun Times reports.
"I had this adrenaline because I wanted to go see my 
daughter," he told the paper. "So when I got to the room in a wheelchair, I got up and grabbed her hand. I said ‘Thank you God, thank you God. Please help my daughter. You helped her this far. Let her go all the way.'”
Now, one year later, Jazlyn is like any other kid. And dad is fully recovered -- with no regrets.
"When you see your child running up and down, you know something good came out of it," he told GMA.

10 Signs Your Man Is A Psychopath

The following article on huffingtonpost put a smile on my face. This is so true that we are surrounded by man of all kind. Sometimes love makes us blind and we are not able to see the real side of our man. Let’s go through to this crazy list to find if your man a psychopath! I am personally not agreed with all of these points therefore, my advice is not to kick out your man if he possesses any one or two of the following sign, because nobody is Mr. Perfect. However, if you man have almost 5 of the following signs… it’s time to part ways ASAP.

Are you in a relationship with a psychopath? You might think that's something you'd know right away by the red tint of evil in the person's eyes, the swastika tat on the forehead, or the insistence on discussing serial killers over dinner. But nope! Psychopaths can be extremely charming and come across like Prince Charming at first. So unless you know the signs, you'd probably get sucked into the life of a psychopath and not know who he or she really was until you are completely sucker punched. Here are 10 signs you should look out for to quickly identify a psychopath.

1. Flattery like you've never heard before. Psychopaths move extremely quickly. On the first date, he'll probably tell you that you are stunningly beautiful, unbelievably intelligent, and uproariously witty. He will play into every fantasy and insecurity you have. If you think you're fat, he will tell you how much he loves your body. If you think you're shy, he will laugh at every lame attempt at a joke and tell you you should have been a comedian. This is called "love bombing." It's the idealization phase he gets you hooked on, and it's the phase you will spend the next however-many months or years trying to get back once he abruptly shuts it off.

2. He is just like you. Psychopaths will try to convince you that you are soul mates, just alike. He loves all the things you love and you have all of the same interests. If you had a tough childhood, he will say something like, "We both had it rough. That's why we understand each other." If there's an obscure book you love, he will make sure he loves it too. What he's doing is called "mirroring." He has no real identity, so he sucks yours up and mirrors it back to you.

3. Pity plays. Pay careful attention to what a psychopath says on the first few dates about his exes and other people in his life. Is his ex girlfriend crazy and stalking him? Did another girlfriend rob him blind? Is his mother controlling and horrible? Does he seem like he's had a tough time with people, who always use and abandon him? Whatever he says about the other people in his life is pretty much exactly what he'll be saying about you at some point, so listen carefully.

4. Illnesses and injuries. Psychopaths absolutely love pity, so pay attention to how many illnesses and injuries he's had. Did he miraculously beat cancer but it could come back at any minute? Does he break his foot on your second date and has to cancel? (But strangely is okay for the third date?) Did he lose his first wife in a car accident that left him with brain trauma (yet he talks fine and seems fine)? Try to check out his stories -- call hospitals if you need to -- but don't be surprised if he has an excuse for why you can't find any record of any of his traumas.

5. Great sex. Everyone wants great sex, but those who have been with a psychopath often say it's the best thing they've ever experienced. A psychopath goes out of his way to please you. It's just another way of getting you hooked. Once he has you hooked, you'll find yourself begging for sex because he suddenly won't want it anymore.

6. Cracks in the mask. A psychopath will sometimes blurt out something odd about himself, apropos of nothing. Like you might be cooking dinner and suddenly he blurts, "I'm crazy you know." Or "I'm cheating on you." He will then either deny he said it or play it off as a joke. A form of keeping you off balance -- but also possibly an unconscious slip of the mask of his persona.

7. Silent treatment. Once psychopaths have you hooked after the "love bombing" and "idealization" phase, they then begin to devalue you. The first step in that is usually to give you the silent treatment over something. Psychopaths are also known to disappear for days at a time. Be sure, the silent treatment and disappearing act will be laid squarely at your feet. In reality, he is off sizing up his next target somewhere.

8. Triangulation. Psychopaths love to work you up into a state of obsessive frenzy, so to do that, they idealize you, give you fabulous sex, and then begin pulling away and "triangulating." This is when they introduce other people into the mix to make you jealous. It could be an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, a friend of the same sex, or even a celebrity. In the psychopaths mind, everyone else wants him, so you better be on your best behavior, or he will move on to one of his adoring fans.

9. Discard. The final phase of the psychopath is the "discard" phase. After he sucks you in with idealization, then begins to devalue you, he will suddenly discard you as if you never had a relationship. You are suddenly completely worthless to him. He will usually move on to another target at this point.

10. "Hoovering." Although a psychopath will discard you, he doesn't quite want you moving on either. If he senses you are done with him, he will suddenly do an about-face, and begin bombarding you with pleas to stay together. He will try to "Hoover you back in by saying everything you've ever wanted to hear, making a million promises, and suddenly being on his absolute best behavior. It's all an act so he can get you back into the fold.

The only way to get rid of a psychopath is to completely go no contact. It's the only thing that doesn't fuel his games and ego. He will make that difficult for you -- some psychopaths will stalk you, most will Hoover. But to engage him in any way, even just to tell him off, only leaves you open to more mind games, which he will win, because he has no feelings. (Those who have children with psychopaths must develop low contact, and keep in touch only as much as absolutely needed as regards the children.)
Of course, nobody is perfect, and some people are just immature and go through periods of giving the silent treatment, or "devaluing" you with critical comments. Other people may triangulate to create jealousy because they're insecure or bored or don't even quite realize they're doing it. There are also plenty of garden-variety jerks out there who will engage in a lot of "psychopathic" behavior without being clinical psychopaths. But if your lover engages in much or all of this behavior, then he or she is likely psychopathic, and you should run for the hills!

Working Moms- How to take care of yourself?

Managing a department at a web design firm, 
raising two kids with her husband, Katrina Alcorn thought she had the working mom routine figured out .... until she had a break down.

While Experts advice that woman should “lean in” to their careers, many moms are looking for ways to “push back.” In other words, they need to slow down their careers for periods of time, especially when children are young. Katrina, who lives in Oakland and self employed have recently given an interview to

Following are the excerpt of her interview :

Q. What is making moms “maxed out”?
We’ve been going through this huge change over the last few decades of women entering the workforce, but none of our institutions, including the workplace, have kept up with that change. Most jobs are still made for people who have an adult at home who can take care of the kids and do the grocery shopping and fill out the school forms and attend the parent-teacher conferences in the middle of the day. That’s not how we’re living anymore.
So I think that women are basically on the brink of this dysfunction in society where we are expecting them to be able to do things that we don’t have time to do anymore. And we end up pushing ourselves, trying to make it work and end up making ourselves sick.

Q. What about maxed out dads?
I think it’s different for men because the cultural expectations are still different for women than men. That doesn't mean that it’s better for men but I think that there are some things that are simpler. Men do not, in general, deal with the same kind of guilt that women have. Studies also show that women are still doing a lot more of the housework even when both parents work. So we’re still not experiencing it in the same way.

Q. You say working and raising kids “sucks in America.” Why?
It’s because we have some of the worst policies around supporting working families of any country in the developed world.

We are one of (a few) countries in the world that do not provide paid parental leave for new parents. We are one of the few developed countries that don’t guarantee paid sick time.
But there’s also a work culture problem. We work some of the longest hours of any workers in any developed country in the world. For people like me who are professionals, there’s sort of this unspoken rule: You don’t take time off, you never unplug and you’re always available nights and weekends. It’s overwhelming for a lot of us.

Welcome Winter 2013 ; Stay beautiful this winter

Stay beautiful in Winter

Winter skin care is absolutely important for treating dry and dehydrated skin. Just take care of these areas for protecting your skin in winter - clothing, moisturizing and diet. The cold air outside and warm/heated air indoors depletes the moisture of the skin. This causes cracking, dryness and flaking of the skin. If the winter is taking its toll on your skin, take these precautions to bring back that glow and luster.

Facial is important - Whatever may be your skin type there will be a change in the skin as there is a change in the climate. A great way to start your winter season is by getting a good facial done. This will allow your cold weather skin-care routine to be more effective.

Keep your skin hydrated - 
Many of us presume that we have to stay hydrated only in summer and not in winter. However this is a wrong notion. In winter we get more dehydrated. Therefore it is important to drink plenty of water, if you want to maintain a healthy skin.

Use Coconut oils
- Half an hour before you take a bath, apply either coconut, olive, avocado or almond oil and massage well. You will notice the skin absorbs the moisture from the oil leaving your skin silky soft after a soak in a tub of tepid water or warm water shower. Aromatic oil will also lift your spirits on a dreary winter day

Opt for Cream cleanser
 and not Gel Cleanser- The astringent in gel cleanser will dry out and irritate winter skin. By using cream cleanser you can remove the facial makeup without depleting the skin of its moisture

Use heavy cream or moisturizer - We use heavy coats and jackets to protect ourselves from the cold. Similarly, you have to give extra protection to your skin especially, in the areas where it is more exposed- face and hands by regularly massaging with heavy cream. This will keep the skin hydrated. 

Sunscreens are still important
 - Just because you're shivering does not mean that the sun's ray is hibernating. Using sunscreen is important even in winter. As in summer, ensure that you apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before you go out of your home.

Exfoliate Daily
 - To get glowing and lustrous skin in winter exfoliate regularly. Do it at least thrice a week. Exfoliation will remove the dead skin that has built up during the winter.

Use hydrating serum
 - In summer due to humidity you do not require one. However, the dry winter air will make your skin look dull. Therefore, use a good hydrating serum before applying your regular moisturizer.

Taller Men Vs Shorter Men... which one you should prefer

According to the study results published in The Economist Record, taller men can earn more money than men with short heights. Tall people are perceived to be more intelligent and powerful. Researchers did not believe that being taller provided any genuine benefit that helped employees actually performs better. However a researcher does show that women prefer tall men because they are better in fighting.

Like most women, I do like a tall man. Having married with a 6ft 2’’, I really know the benefits.

A new piece of research has shown that women prefer tall men because they’re better at fighting – something about downward punches being more powerful (despite the LIES cartoons have pedalled about upper-cuts sending people flying through the air).

The taller the caveman, the better he was at fighting off woolly mammoths and T-Rexs* and blokes who wanted to bash us on the head with a big stick and drag us to their semi-detached cave. Which meant our offspring would be safe, assuring the future of the human race and guaranteeing that one day, you’d get to read a wonderful blog about short men.

There’s nothing nicer than having to stand on tiptoes to kiss someone, partly because looking up rather than down is very flattering, chin-wise. And as Caroline in the office just pointed out, tall men make you feel smaller, which is always lovely.

How to spend healthy and Happy Life

A healthy life is a happy life; Internet is full of articles about the importance of maintaining a healthy life. However, very few of us actually try to make an effort to avoid health hazards.  Expert says that 50-60% of health issues can be resolve if we do regular medical check ups. Regular medical check ups are very important to maintain a healthy life. In this article we will discuss why Medical Examination is necessary and what their benefits are? Why it is necessary to get proper medical help whenever you encounter anything unusual?

Preventive Medical Attention:

A study done by researchers in united states shows that during 2012 the trend to ignore the need of preventive medical attention has been increased as most of us trying to cut off on medical bills and pay attention to our other needs. The reason could be high cost of medical bills and recession etc. Whatever be the reason the fact is that regular medical examination is necessary for all of us regard less of age, sex and health. Even if you are enjoying good health, visit your doctor once or twice a year for a thorough checkup and medical advice. Remember if you really want to spend a happy life you need to spend money and time to maintain good health.

Prevention is better than cure

Don't wait the medical emergency to knock on your door. It is important to note that most of the critical and chronic disease and disorders starts with the little problem. If that problem can be caught on time during regular medical examination you can not only save your family from emotional trauma and stress but the cost required to handle the disease in later stage. But, this is only possible if you are ready to spend a little on your routine medical checkups. So, what you are waiting for take your appointment now?

Avoid Self Medication

Ignoring the need of regular medical examination is a problem however taking self medication for for solution of any health issues is even criminal. There is an increasing trend of doing self medication by most of us, some of us use the same medicine we used in the past for the similar issues and even use the medicine recommend by our friends for almost similar symptoms. All of us are aware of disadvantages of self medication, they are unlimited and quite horrible so why we are ready to accept the threat to our health in order to just save few dollars?

Avoid Internet Pharmacy

I have seen so many people try to diagnose their illness by searching the symptom on internet and then purchase the medicine from an internet pharmacy. Is this so simple? As such the same internet is full of the mishaps and accidents cause by using wrong medicines. If you are lucky enough to choose the right medicine how you could be sure about its application and dosage? So don’t play with your life! It’s precious. Let a certified practitioner to help you, only he can save you from any mishap today and always.

Control diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol?

Every second person around us is carrying any one of these disorders or all of them at once. However if you are in habit of regular medical checkups you can certainly control them before they can harm your body. If you are having diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol, regular medical checkup is mandatory for you. Check your doctor regularly and keep them in control so you can spend a healthy and happy life.

Don’t Save Money, save Life

Financial constrains sometimes bound us to forego health issues which at times cost us a lot at a later stage. We should understand that regular medical checkups might cost us few hundred dollars but if we don’t know about high blood pressure, sugar level etc on time; we might end up paying thousands of dollars for open heart surgery along with the lot of stress and tension for the whole family. Hence visiting your doctor regularly is always a smart choice

Health Assessment tools

At the age of 50 and above it is always advisable to keep the basic health assessment tools along with yourself. Certain medical illness required patients to monitor their levels time to time for which you can’t visit doctor every then and now. For Example Blood pressure level and Sugar level can easily be monitor once in day and twice a week to keep track for their health. By self monitoring your condition you can maintain a chart and take that chart to your doctor for his advice. Again keeping medical equipment at home doesn't mean that you can start acting to be your doctor yourself; visiting doctor for his professional advice is still very important

Lastly we wish all our reader a happy and healthy life.

Five tips on how to be a morning person

Here are the top five tips for being a 'morning person':   Very realistic, practical and easy to follow make sure to adopt them .

1. Don't rely on coffee / tea  to wake you up. The caffeine content of coffee can vary greatly depending on where it's bought or how it's made.The average cup of coffee does not contain enough milligrams of caffeine to have any pick-me-up effect, so you may actually be getting no benefit at all from the coffee you convince yourself you need to help you start the day.

2. Don't press the snooze button, instead set the alarm for the time you have to wake up and then get up at THAT time. The extra sleep is far more beneficial for your body than the time spent 'snoozing'.

3. Try and have a regular time that you get out of bed, and stick to that time even on the weekends. The body starts preparing itself to wake up one hour before you actually do, so the routine helps the body know when to start to prepare.

4. Alarm clocks can often startle you out of sleep, which is not perhaps the best start to the day. Dawn simulators offer a solution that allows you to wake-up more naturally.

5. Finally, the best way to feel awake and refreshed in the morning is to make sure you get a decent amount of sleep the night before.

Good Morninggggggggggg

How to handle friendship dilemmas?

Our female friendships are more important than ever. Statistics show that in our romantic life we settle down later, have shorter relationships and are more likely to go through major breakups more than once. So friendships are the one constant we count on.

But that doesn't mean they're always easy - far from it! They can be fraught, complicated and tricky.

Here are six specific 'pal problems' and top tips for handling them:
Pal problem No 1: She's doing something destructive or harmful to herself It's horrible to watch a friend repeatedly date bad boys or do something harmful to herself, such as losing too much weight. You want to be supportive but at the same time you don't want her to shut you out if she thinks you're interfering too much.

Friendship fixer: When you have the 'big chat' about, eg, the guy who's mucking her about, don't react badly if she gets annoyed. She's likely to feel put out if you hit a raw nerve. Yes, you're doing her a favour but keep calm because if you get angry back and she's likely to shut you out.

Emphasise that you'll always be there for her if in future she decides she needs to talk. And never throw it back in her face with "I told you so" if she comes looking for your support.

Pal problem No 2: She clashes with another of your friends
Life would be so simple if all your friends could get on with each other but there's always one who can't stand the sight of the other. She bitches behind your other friend's back and it makes you so uncomfortable.

Friendship fixer:
Set your boundaries straightaway. Let her know you accept she doesn't like your other friend but it makes you very uncomfortable to hear it.

Think about whether she could be envious of how much time you spend with the other friend. Is she insecure and needs a bit of a confidence boost? Let her know how much you value her friendship. Hopefully she might stop being insecure about your other friendship.

Say you'd love it if she came along when you see your other friend but understand she may not want to. Don't give in to emotional blackmail to give up your other friendship - she needs to be mature about it.

Pal problem No 3: You can't invite her to something because there are limited spaces
There will always be events where you need to take someone besides her because of particular circumstances. You feel really guilty about it but there's no alternative.

Friendship fixer:
If you're very close friends she'll know if you're going to a special event - so don't lie about it. Instead be very clear about why you have to take, eg, your cousin or your work colleague [whoever] to this event.

Suggest you two do something special soon and remind her she'd be top of your list to take if it wasn't for these circumstances.
