Strategies for staying healthy during winter

Like our ancestors, all should adjust the diet in the cold season. The ogre who hunger after you squeezed a large walk in the snow is not trivial! It is necessary to increase your energy intake. Eat more protein, they produce antibodies that you need. Do not skimp on the eggs! Nutritionists make it one of the most balanced food proteins. There is also evidence that they help fight against the cold. The oysters are equally efficient. Consume a dozen brings as much protein as a steak, and ten times less fat. Rich in zinc and amino acid, they can help to fight against fatigue, stress and, of course, they strengthen the immune system. Fruits and vegetables are great protectors of the body. Do not stick to the recommended five shares per day. If the price of certain foods that seem exorbitant out of season, compensate! Choose a mix of dried fruit, for example. These nutrients are concentrating real energy, they are full of minerals, vitamins and trace elements necessary for the protection and proper functioning of the system. Better yet, throw your heart on the cabbage! This grandma’s beloved vegetable contains a good disinfectant for nose and sinuses. It is rich in vitamin C and is always cheap to buy! To prepare the ground and have resistance to any event, enjoy an “explosive” cocktail of royal jelly. This...

A more positive vision of life

Some people make a habit of abandoning the game when their goal seems within reach. Suddenly, the success of a project opens up prospects less rosy than expected: success in business leads to excessively long hours at work, a plan almost done becomes less interesting when you realize the long struggle consequent to not get back the lost pounds, the impending responsibilities accompanying a promotion crush you… Impulse, procrastination, interpersonal conflicts and lack of perseverance are all strategies used to mask negative emotions. Why do we use them? Our mental attitude makes a difference in our emotional management, improving our perception, our communication and our relations. These are all key factors in establishing a system of life based on happiness. This mindset can be learned. Just find the method that suits you. These methods can be NLP or meditation, you can be happy through playing sports, gardening, yoga and doing art (a good comedy show can help to see life more positively). Thus, there are many tools to reduce stress and see the bright side of life. The performance levels we set in all spheres of our lives are often unrealistic. We want to increase our productivity at work, enjoy longer hours to spend with our families, improve our living material conditions and continue our personal development. We do not always realize that our perfectionism becomes our worst enemy....

What makes you happy?

We all think of projects which would make us crazy and wild with joy, but our expectations are sometimes (often) disappointed. Stop unnecessary unhappiness and face the old habits that keep you from success and be happy at last! Even the person the most responsive to her needs, conscious of her objectives and implementation-oriented stages of that separation can bring its own roadblocks. Unconsciously or not, she may, for example, falling behind her work, too often push the implementation of some important tasks, etc. Ultimately, the excuse has already been found: it would have been much better if, by chance, she had had a little more time. This is the kind of habit we always end up catching. Often, it’s OK, but the elastic does not stretch on forever. “A bad habit becomes a destructive behavior when you create more than momentary regret leaving you with a profound sense of disappointment” says Pauline Wallin, author of Taming Your Inner Brat. For example, it is normal to spoil a little by purchasing something, but to engage in impulsive buying that cannot be afforded or take on credit card accounts that you cannot stand the mere payment of interests, these are situations that suffer more inconvenience than the velveteen they have given initially. Sooner or later, we must deal with these bad habits and make the necessary corrections. Happiness on “hold”...

The four key of extraordinary relationships

A friend is someone who knows us well and loves us anyway. – Anonymous Our relationships with others help to improve our life experience. Good relations reduce stress and help us to know us better. But what is a relationship? A relationship is a place where we give first, not a place where we take. We decided to share with you four keys that allow you to live extraordinary relationships. Here they are! First key: Respect The need to be respected and recognized is fundamental in all our relationships. If you do not understand or respect the needs, interests and values of others, you do not express them respect. This causes disputes and poorer relationships. Without respect, our relations are doomed to remain superficial and unsatisfactory. If you accept others and generally you do not try to change them, they will not feel judged and respect you for sure! Second key: Trust What is the relationship without trust? In relationships, trust allows others to know we are here, with them, for good reasons. Trust stems from respect and allows others to feel completely themselves with us. It is also in trust that intimacy can be healthy. This intimacy allows us to deepen our relations, to know others beyond weather conversations. Is this not the definition of a meaningful relationship? Third key: Sharing The quality of our relations depends on...
