By Ravi PatelFinally, the winter is over. The sun is shining, and its fun playing under the sun. Staying outdoor to enjoy fresh air and produce some vitamin D can be very lovely during summer. As lovely as staying outdoor is, it can be very dangerous to the skin. Every second spent under the sun damages the skin, leading to wrinkles, weathered appearance and aging of the skin. To maintain a younger-looking skin, you need to be very careful when staying outdoor during summer and spring.Tip 1 - Eat Fruits and VegetablesResearch has shown that some phytonutrients which are known as carotenoids which impart the beautiful, rich and attractive yellow and gold color to vegetables and fruits effectively help in increasing the natural resistance of the skin to UV damages.

Baby Boomers: Turn Back the Clock on Your Heart 20 Years With Exercise

By Julie GorgesI'm loving this latest report. According to a new study, even if you've been pretty much a couch potato for most your life, it's not too late. You can still get in shape now in late middle-age and help your heart function as if it were 20 years younger.The study published in the American Heart Association's journal, Circulation, looked at healthy but sedentary people between the ages of 45 and 64.Individuals were put into two different groups. The first group participated in a program of non-aerobic exercise such as yoga, balance training, and weight training three times a week. The second group, did moderate- to high-intensity aerobic exercise for four or more days a week.After two years, the group engaging in the higher-intensity exercise saw a dramatic improvement in the function of their hearts."We took these 50-year-old hearts and turned the clock back to 30- or 35-year-old hearts," said Dr. Ben Levine, a sports cardiologist at University…

At The Edge Of The Detachment - From a Reiki Energy Healing Session

By Zahra'a SharifWhen I started learning about energy healing, especially Reiki, I was expecting miracles to happen in the physical level to people who I conduct healing for. I wanted that to happen as I witnessed the suffering of many loved ones and had the eagerness to render assistance. I know that the healing procedure failed on so many occasions to diagnose and heal. However, the side effects of pills to our body system cannot be sidelined as well as the physical and emotional pain after a surgical procedure. I saw many people who had mental issues and were taking pills to calm them down so they don't become dangerous to themselves or others, but it rarely helps to put them on track again. I read so many books on the idea that the body can heal itself, and that the mind has the power to create miracles but I never witnessed one. I was hoping that Reiki can be the creator of these miracles that initiate self-healing of the body. My journey to learn about energy healing st…

By Mags Whyler Having a double chin doesn't necessarily have to mean you're overweight. Genetics, water retention or bad eating habits mean that slim women, are just as susceptible to getting a double chin as anyone else. Double chins and sagging jowls can affect anyone, and can prove difficult to get rid of regardless of your body type, shape and size.It's very hard to hide fat under the chin and around the neck unless you keep your head held high all the time, trying to make your profile more flattering. And concealing it with clothing is only possible if you want to spend the rest of your life with a scarf wrapped around your neck.A double chin can also slowly appear because of lack of exercise. When you put on weight, the fat can settle under your chin, changing the contour of your face and altering your appearance. Unfortunately it's not possible to spot reduce just your chin, so you will need a full-body weight-loss approach, and focus on reducing all of your bo…
