Five Healthy Life Styles to Quality Life

Five Healthy Life Styles to Quality Life

Are you living gloomy days wondering when this will end? Want to life a joyful life? Wish to see, feel and live an enticing – actually thrilling – life filled with moments to treasure? Continue reading to get a taste of 5 lifestyle tips and tricks we have for you and which are bound to improve the quality of your life!

Eat Healthily
Eating healthily does indeed dramatically impact your life. According to much research conducted in many places around the world, continuous intake of junk food will not only raise your cholesterol and fat levels to over health threshold levels which will lead you to obesity, but it also ultimately leads you to a life style of laziness and carelessness.

To eat healthily, try to follow these pointers which will take you up the first couple of steps on the proper nutrition ladder:

  • Eat 3 times a day.
  • The last meal (dinner or supper) has to be taken at least 3 hours before you go to sleep.
  • Avoid junk food
  • Eat fruits as part of your meals but after 1 hour from the main course – not to bloat your stomach.
  • Avoid much sweets and chocolates. Although a portion of chocolate per day (0.5 ounces or so) are said to be good for one’s health.
  • Drink at least 1.5 to 2 liters of water (not juice, coffee of any other liquid) per day – this will help your kidneys function well and prolong their activity (and hence your life)

Practice Sports
Walking for at least 30 minutes a day helps regulating your blood circulation and general health. Try to avoid walking or practicing sports right after a meal as this hinders the process of digestion, massively reduces the benefits of the sport as well as causes joint and/or stitches pain.

Listen to Music
Music has been nominated as one of the most relaxing and spiritually boasting factors of life. Of course the taste of music is different from a person to another, but the generally relaxing music is agreed to be the soft or classic genre.

Take at least 5-10 minutes of meditation per day. To help you get in the mood of thinking about nothing, you might as well listen to relaxing music. This is bound to calm you down after a storming day.

Have a Goal
Rather have an ultimate goal (like an eternal life you’re working towards or a humanitarian goal) and work your way towards it using milestones of goals that may or may not have something to do with the ultimate goal but do fulfill some need or aspiration in you.

There are quite a number of books, articles, research papers and statistics that have been written, made and conducted about the goal-oriented life style and its benefits. As a matter of fact, the current best seller in the US is Reveren Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Life”. This book leads you through a series of brainstorming sessions, out of which you will work your way (yourself) to acknowledging the presence of God, His love to you and then you will also discover the purpose of your creation. This purpose need not be evangelical on the surface, but rather through one’s own work, family and surroundings, one may be serving his/her purpose of existence once the goal is placed in front of oneself.

Smile
As simple as it may sound, many people tend to miss it and frown instead. It takes about 17 facial muscles to smile, while it takes about 41 facial muscles to frown. Regardless of the exact number (which is indeed subject to much controversy between scientists, researchers and other experts), no one has ever denied the fact that it takes more effort to frown – let alone the tense mood one’s put in – in turn.

Have you ever heard the saying “A smile is contagious”? Well, this is quite true as most research illustrate.

Life elongating – A smile can indeed help in elongating your life (or at least not reducing it like many other factors of our life). The benefit increases if your smile actually turns into a laugh, but anyhow, the benefit remains an issue to consider.

Wrinkles avoidance/reduction – This is definitely good news for advocates of keeping the young look and feel throughout the years. Since smiling uses less number of muscles than frowning, you tend to reduce the facial tension which is one of the factors leading to wrinkles.

20 Unusual Uses for Coca-Cola That You’ve Never Considered

20 Unusual Uses for Coca-Cola That You’ve Never Considered

Coca-Cola is an adored product the world over. While keeping yourself in good health means moderating how often you enjoy this drink, Coca-Cola lovers will be happy to hear that there are plenty of uses for the soda pop that don’t involve ingesting it. Impressively, Coca-Cola can be used to help you clean, get rid of rust, and even help maintain your garden. Whether you are looking for a way to finally get rid of those pesky stains, or just want to find new ways to love this drink, these 20 jaw-dropping and unusual uses for Coca-Cola will blow you away.

Kill pests in your garden

Coca-Cola is also an effective pest control method for your garden. To rid yourself of plant munching slugs and snails, pour a small bowl of Coca-Cola and place it near your garden or flowerbeds. The smell will attract these crawling bugs and the drink’s acidity will kill them.

Defrost your windshield

Incredibly, Coca-Cola can also defrost your windscreen in the wintertime. Simply pour Coke liberally across your windshield and wait about a minute. The ice should turn to slush for easy removal.

Clean your pans

Coca-Cola is also useful in the kitchen, especially on burnt pans. For any pan with burnt on messes, pour a can of Coke into the pan and simmer. The mess should easily wipe away. You can also soak kettles and other kitchen items in Coca-Cola to remove scale and build up.

Clean bugs from your windshield

Another way Coca-Cola can aid in your car care is by removing bugs and gunk from your windshield. Soak a cloth in coke, then rub across your windshield. Just be careful not to get any on your paint job.

Remove rust from your car

Coca-Cola is also useful when removing rust. The simplest method is to dip crumpled tinfoil in Coca-Cola, then give the item a scrub and you should be rust free.

Loosen rusty bolts

Similarly, use Coca-Cola to loosen up a rusty bolt. Simply unscrew the bolt half a turn and pour on Coca-Cola. Let it sit, then give the metal a wipe. The bolt and screws will be one hundred percent in no time.

Remove stains from your fabric

Surprisingly, Coca-Cola is incredibly helpful when removing stains from clothing and fabric. Coke will easily remove grease stains, as well as blood spots. Remember that Coca-Cola itself is brown, so stains on light fabrics might be better removed another way.

Remove oil spots

Another way to use Coca-Cola is to remove oil stains from cement. Whether it’s your garage or your driveway, soak the stain in Coca-Cola for a few hours then hose off.

Relieve jellyfish stings

Should you be unwilling to neutralize a jellyfish sting the traditional way (with urine) pouring Coca-Cola on the sting will also do the job.

Clean your car engine

Coca-Cola is also an effective ways to clean your car engine. Believe it or not, Coke distributors have reportedly been a fan of this technique for ages. 

Use it in cooking

Coca-Cola is also a fantastic addition to many recipes. Using Coca-Cola to cook pot roast or steaks in will easily tenderize the meat for you. Mixing Coke with ketchup or barbecue sauce also makes for a delightfully sweet glaze.

Clean your old coins

Another way to use Coke to clean is to soak tarnished coins in the soda. About ten minutes should be enough to get rid of the muck.

Clean your tiles

Incredibly, Coca-Cola can also be applied to tiles to effectively clean grout. Let Coke sit on the tiles that need cleaning for a few minutes, then wipe away.

Supercharge your compost

Coke is also an impressive way to speed up your compost. The sugar in Coca-Cola feeds micro organisms, plus the acidity will help your compost break down faster.

Remove gum from your hair

Coca-Cola can also help you avoid a major hair disaster. If you have gum stuck in your hair, dip the gum into a small bowl of Coke and let it sit for a few minutes. The Coca-Cola breaks down the gum, allowing you to wipe it off.

Fade unwanted hair dye

Similarly, if you made a mistake with your hair dye, Coca-Cola comes to the rescue. It’s probably best to get in the shower first, then pour Diet Coke over your hair. Let the soda sit for a few minutes, then wash your hair like normal. This method is effective in removing temporary hair dyes, but will likely only fade professionally applied dyes.

Clean marker stains

Coca-Cola is also an easy way to remove marker stains from carpet. Apply a small amount of Coke, scrub the spot, then clean with soapy water. Again, remember that Coca-Cola is brown, so removing stains on white or light-colored carpets might be better achieved with another method.

Clean your toilet

Coca-Cola can also help you clean elsewhere in the house. To easily clean a toilet, pour Coca-Cola all around the bowl and let it sit. There’s no need to scrub, simply flush and your toilet should be sparkling clean.

Feed your plants

Coca-Cola is also a surprising way to add a little extra life to some flowering plants. Particularly with azaleas and gardenias, adding a small amount of Coca-Cola to the soil can deliver nutrients your plant may be low on.

Get rid of bugs at a picnic

The last of our unusual uses for Coca-Cola is to safeguard your picnic or outdoor lunch from pests and wasps. Simply pour a small cup of Coca-Cola and set it out about a half hour before you start to eat. By placing the cup away from your site, bugs will be drawn to the soda and not your lunch.
