The Link Between Food And Love
  • There is a complex hormonal reaction that affects those who are in love, and also their food choice.
  • Even early on in a romantic relationship, food plays an important role, as one can cook for their partner or buy them a fancy dinner.
  • The quality of the food and how it is presented is crucial as it affects the quality of the relationship.
  • New research points towards a ‘reward hormone’ called norepinephrine that shoots up in new romantic relationships, increasing the feeling of euphoria, while also suppressing appetite.

Health

Margarine Vs. Butter

Margarine is marketed as a healthier alternative to butter, which is not true. It may seem like butter but is mainly manufactured using vegetable oils, salt, emulsifiers and trans-fats. Most of it isn’t healthy.

Butter, on the other hand, is made from milk, which is a topic of a lot of health debates but has been used without any problem for thousands of years. It is a good source of vitamins and calcium while being high in fats.

Shut down those activities that stimulate your mind, such as work, emails, internet browsing and even watching TV. 

Try reading a book, taking a bath, listening to music or practicing some gentle yoga or meditation. Develop rituals that work for you.

False Hope Syndrome In Dieting

Many people continue to practice the same diet fad or routine to lose weight even after the effort is proven to be ineffective. This mentality of dieters is called the False Hope Syndrome and happens due to:

  1. Overestimating the weight loss amount.
  2. Misjudgement of the time it would take to lose weight.
  3. Not knowing how easy or difficult it would be.
  4. Unrealistic expectations of the result of weight loss.
The Japanese Island Of Okinawa

Okinawa, an island in southern Japan is known for the longevity of its population and has an extremely low rate of heart disease issues. The elderly are active and happy in the 80s and 90s.

Part of the secret of their longevity and happiness is their varied diet, rich in fruits and vegetables.

Early placebo trials that tested the effects of homoeopathy tablets revealed that doing nothing was better than both homoeopathy and allopathic (standard) medicine.

In the 1990s, Danish medical researchers compared people who take placebos with people who take no treatment at all. They concluded that there is little evidence that placebos, in general, have powerful clinical effects, but the researchers made incorrect comparisons. Today it is widely accepted that placebos are effective for some things, like pain, but not for everything.

Approaching Burnout At Work

Feeling and identifying the signs of job burnout is a powerful way to arm yourself with the strategies and resources needed to prevent it from bringing you down. So if it’s time to sit down with your manager or HR team, set up that meeting.

Explain that working longer hours is not leading to your most productive and happiest self. Most companies rather make a small adjustment than having to hire somebody else.

Research shows that if you bring your work to your bed, you're likely to continue thinking about work even after you stopped working.

Try to create a separate work area - it could be your kitchen table or a small nook in your living room. Then retain your bedroom for sleep.

Caffeine in excess cause anxiety, heart palpitations, and sleeping disturbances.

Up to 400mg of caffeine a day (two to four 8 ounce cups) can be part of a healthy diet, and over 600mg per day is too much.

The signs of burnout
  • You dread going to work in the morning.
  • You show up late or find reasons to leave early.
  • You feel bored or don’t want to engage with the work when you’re there.
  • You’re complaining about work a lot.
  • You check your work email first thing in the morning and before you go to bed.
  • You plan all your vacations, so you are always available in case they suddenly need you.
  • You’re having frequent work dreams and nightmares.
