It’s December – the season of back-to-back parties, wrapping up work and annual targets, and preparing for New Year parties. Amidst this brouhaha, your energy levels can bog you down. Plus, the hangovers and late nights of the day before (even weeks for some!).

I realised this while shopping at Phoenix Marketcity. This party-shop-hop season can be draining. With three big shopping bags and a never-ending to-do list, I kept browsing through shop windows from floor to floor. When I came across a coffee shop, I finally got to pause and drop my bags. It was such a struggle to keep my eyes open! So, I asked for a cappuccino.

Before the waiter could even bring my cuppa, my eyes had given up. My brain had shut down. My face read zzZZ. And the coffee was not going to work on me anymore. After 15 minutes or so, the waiter came and said, “Madam, your cappuccino is here… Madam!”. That shook me because I didn’t even realise I had fallen asleep. The 20-minute nap felt like an hour or so. I felt fresh like a daisy and I have to admit, a bit embarrassed too, to have a waiter wake me up. Continue reading The power of nap

Sex up your health

How many of you talk about sex? And how many of you know the health benefits of sex? It’s much, much more than fun

Couple Lying on a Beach

Talking about sex is a taboo, but in itself it is as natural as feeling hungry. We know this, yet we don’t know it. I mean, if sex has the potential to give birth to a new life, just imagine the healing powers of sex. This means that the stuff that life is made of comes from sex. Now, how is that for a perspective?

Sexy Health Facts

  • One of the reasons why this caught my attention: sex can help you lose weight. Yes! One sack session can burn 200 calories. That’s as good as a 15-minute run. Who wants to run these winter mornings anyway? Just get jiggy inside your quilt.
  • According to worldlifeexpectancy.com, frequent orgasms, at least a hundred per year can add 3 to 8 years to your life. That’s about 0.28 orgasms a day. While the stat may sound weird, two orgasms per week is achievable. In any case, forget the longevity factor, it is pure pleasure. Continue reading Sex up your health

They might tickle your taste buds but damage your mood and body

Last year I drove into the Aundh outlet of McDonalds and drove out with a McMeal. It had a soda, a burger and a pack of fries. Just one of those days you don’t want to cook. The day was tiring as I didn’t want to write a thing on technology. All I looked forward to was a ready-to-eat meal and an episode of The Big Bang Theory to make me feel like it’s a great evening. Once in a while it’s okay to indulge in atrocious food habits. Especially on a Thursday evening. I peeled the paper cover off the burger, put a straw inside my Coke and squeezed some ketchup for the fries while searching for Z-Cafe on my TataSky. Multi-tasking comes handy when there’s a burger to look forward to. It’s also a prep to eat all things inside one burger in a bite. It isn’t easy with burgers, with the mayo dripping and the remote in your other hand.

While Sheldon Cooper was doing what he does the best – turning lame into a verb that creates LOLs – the whole burger-and-Big Bang concept was not working out for me. My funny bone would not tickle. I was starting to feel irritated, though the Coke tried its best to calm my throat. When the meal was over, I started to feel worse than before. And then I was just a phone call away from two pints of beer. This was the last ray of sheer optimism to make my evening great. And Google calls it the ‘junk food blues’. You need to understand that it could happen to you too. Since information is power, it is good to know what junk does to your psyche. So, here are the top five foods that can give you the blues.
