Are you looking to relieve stress? Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to regain serenity that don’t require spending a huge sum of your salary in luxury spa treatments.
In fact, one of the best relaxation methods is completely free. All you need are a few healthy lungs, your breathing, and 15 minutes of your time. This is called controlled breathing.
Controlled breathing exercises can help keep your mind and body in shape by lowering blood pressure, promoting rest and relaxation, and reducing stress.
While the long-term benefits of breathing exercise have not been extensively studied, many experts encourage the…
When you live with a control freak, you love him despite his constant need to make sure everything goes according to plan.
When you work with them, you tolerate them because you love your job, have to pay your bills — and prison orange isn’t your color.
You can’t avoid all world control freaks, so you have to find a way to live peacefully with them. It’s hard, but believe it or not, it can be done.
Let’s say you can’t wait to throw an epic birthday party for a loved one. If you spend the time dissecting every movement…
In real-life dating studies, approaching genuine intentions, physical attractiveness and earning potential strongly predict romantic appeal.
While people prefer people who are like them in terms of traits like religiosity or economics, more is almost always considered better when it comes to beauty and income. Based on these “consensually ranked” traits, people seem to strive for partners who score higher than themselves. They don’t want a game so much as a jackpot.
The stereotypical example of this is known in sociology as the ‘beauty status exchange’ — an attractive person marries a wealthy or otherwise powerful person, and both win…
Sure, you’ve had fun in bed, but have you ever reached that orgasmic point of no return?
So first of all, lose the regressive trope to have to please your man, and only your man, because it’s totally backwards. Your orgasm is just as important as your partner’s (it doesn’t matter what your genitals look like). Are we good? Good.
Now, if you are just curious about what your man would like in the bedroom, get this completely.
In a good sexual relationship, you touch yourself all the time — not just in bed. When talking to your loved one…
No doubt there are many connections between sexuality and self-esteem, and they play out in so many ways in people’s lives.
I thought I would take a modern look at different ways people’s self-esteem affects their sexuality (and vice versa). At its core, self-esteem is about respecting ourselves — loving yourself.
Do you wake up every day and love to be yourself? Do you support you? We all have a need for self-esteem, where we demand recognition from our peers for our achievements, we develop a sense of competence and have the respect of others.
We feel our own self-esteem…
Since the COVID-19 lockdown, with no access to a full gym and intensive equipment, I’ve been looking for effective workouts to improve strength and agility at home.
Agility combines speed, balance, strength, and body control in one movement. It is an essential skill built into most types of exercise and training drills.
If you are a home-based professional and also an avid fitness enthusiast, improving your agility should be one of the starting points of your training plan.
When I heard about a “12–3–30” workout in almost every corner of the internet, I was initially confused and then eager to…
Whether on the breasts, buttocks, stomach or thighs — stretch marks affect millions of people everywhere.
I had stretch marks on my thighs and breasts when I was 18. At first they were pretty small and almost unnoticed, but later they got bigger and darker as I put on weight.
I never ever worn a thong bikini on the beach or posted an unedited bikini photo on Instagram because I was so embarrassed.
Getting rid of my stretch marks has been amazing for my confidence.
My stretch marks even played a role in my sex life. When it comes to…
According to the diet’s website, it was developed by a team of doctors and pharmacists to balance hormone levels, boost metabolism, and promote stable, long-lasting weight loss.
The idea is based on studies that have shown that a low glycemic index diet — mainly consisting of foods that do not increase blood sugar or insulin levels — can increase weight loss, fat burning and metabolism.
This diet promises that you can eat 20–30% more food than conventional weight loss diets by increasing your metabolism and focusing on healthier choices instead of counting calories or limiting your intake.
The GOLO diet…
If your goal is to have a slimmer stomach, you may have started running like me because it’s a free and easy way to burn calories.
But have you noticed that it doesn’t work? You may be running and not losing weight, or maybe even gaining weight — it’s frustrating trying your best and not seeing the results you’re looking for!
If you had told me a few years later that I would complete ultramarathons, that running could even seem effortless, I never would have believed you. …
Do you want to lose weight in 2021? Now is a good time to focus on recharging your metabolism, especially if you are over 40.
At this age, some hormones start to drop and a healthy diet alone is not enough to reduce the extra weight.
At one time or another, most of us have tried to diet, be it cutting carbohydrates, limiting calories, cutting fat… the list goes on.
However, what many people don’t realize is that a constant yo-yo diet, over-training, and limiting the amount of food you eat can affect your body’s ability to metabolize food.
