20 Fun Ways To Feel Alive!

Unless you are the second coming of Jesus Christ (if you are, please comment!) it’s impossible not to feel a bit down sometimes. Here are 20 quick ways to revive yourself and get back that “on top of the world” feeling.

  1. Stick your body out of a sunroof while the car is driving
    I can tell you first-hand this one is a lot of fun. If you don’t have a sunroof, a window works just as well. Speeds of 40 mph+ make the experience much more invigorating.
  2. Go experience nature.
    Being outside just feels right.
  3. Destroy something.
    Take out some frustrations on an inanimate object like the printer in ‘Office Space’.
  4. Dance!
    Remember that one time you got a bit tipsy and ACTUALLY danced and didn’t care about everyone watching? Go do that again (being tipsy is optional).
  5. Realize that you are ALIVE!
    You have years and years of potential ahead of you. If you feel dead today, consider what stupendous things you could be doing tomorrow.
  6. Exercise.
    Hormones are the best legal drugs out there. Pump some iron or go for a run and get that adrenaline pumping.
  7. Watch the sun rise.
    You can’t argue with this one. Wake up a bit early and remind yourself how refreshing this experience can be.
  8. Scare yourself.
    Are you deathly afraid of spiders? Go touch one. Pick a fear and go check and see if it still freaks you out.
  9. Run around in the rain.
    Haven’t you seen ‘Singing in the Rain’ or ‘The Sound of Music?’
  10. Blast your favorite badass song.
    My favorites are Bliss by Muse, You and Whose Army? by Radiohead and Without a Face by Rage Against the Machine.
  11. Do something outside of your comfort zone.
    Surely you can find something in this last but I wanted to keep your imagination going just in case.
  12. Scream at the top of your lungs.
    Like in all of those cliche movies where they yell in the rain on top of some mountain… except do in right where you are, right now.
  13. Meditate.
    Google “meditation techniques” if you’re unsure of the best way to do this.
  14. Do something spontaneous
    It doesn’t have to be crazy or dangerous, just fine. Stepping outside your normal schedule and throwing responsibility to the wind feels great.
  15. Practice an act of random kindness.
    Giving feels really good. Sometimes we forget exactly how good.
  16. Get to know a stranger.
    Truly connect with another human being. Skip the small talk and ask about their goals and ambitions.
  17. Make love and/or have an outrageous make-out session.
    The room/closet/dressing room you occupy should be FILLED with steam afterward or you’re not rocking it hard enough.
  18. Do something illegal
    Oh my gosh, did I just tell you to break the law? Hell yes I did. Laws are made to be broken and it feels great to do it.
  19. Drive fast…really fast.
    Think ‘The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift.’ If you have a Prius, maybe you should just skip to the next one…
  20. Get Mad!
    Anger is a gift. If something is getting you down, express your frustration about it! Just getting your feeling out can feel amazing.

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

What the study found out

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

(applauds)

I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

There are limits, of course

But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

The health benefits of red wine

But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

Be aware of the risks, too

Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
