5 Ways to Get your Emotions under Control:

1. Realize the Situation:

Sometimes you need to avoid some circumstances which triggered unwanted emotions. When you know that you will most likely get angry when you are in a hurry, then don’t extend the things till the last minute. Try to avoid that situation to happen. Leave the place before 10 minutes or reach office before the actual time you need to and you won’t be bothered so much in the traffic.

2. Change the Situation:

The Emotion where everyone is trying to reduce is the disappointment. You are always expecting something, for example you like to serve “perfect meal” to friends and family, but when something goes wrong and at the end only huge disappointment remains. You try to modify the situation by finding the best recipes which is within your range of ability.

3. Attentional focus:

Let’s assume a situation where you constantly feel inferior to the people around you who looks great. For example, when you are at the gym, you notice the regulars on weight machines who lift three times as much as you can. You will feel low and can’t help but watch with envy and wonder at what they are able to do. You should change your focus from them to your fellow gym rats who will help you feel more confident about your abilities. Just focus on what you are doing and eventually you will gain some strength you desire.

4. Changing your thoughts:

Deepest emotions are beliefs which drive them to the core. You feel low or sad when you believe you have lost something. By having a second thoughts you may not be able to change the situation but at least you could change the way you believe the situation is affecting you.

5. Change your response:

If everything goes wrong and you can’t able to avoid just modify your focus or change your thoughts on the alternate response. The final motto is to realize the situation accordingly and get control of your response. In some situation, you might leave some unwanted words, you should see the situation from other side, later you will realize how you reacted in the situation and the next second your mind will say you could have reacted in a different way. Similarly, when you can’t stop laughing when everyone looks serious, gather your inner resources and try to change your facial expression.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

Why do we call “Failure Leads to Success”, for most of the people failure is a scary word. After years of conditioning by parents, education system and teachers, they have taught that failure is the one which needs to be avoided and in all your works no failure should be there. If there is any failure, then we feel low and some feel like their life is done.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success
Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

The environmental truth is that failure is inevitable and at the end without any doubt if you keep on trying, failure will lead to success. For example, when you take the best people in all respective fields, at the beginning they would have faced n-number of failures. Bill Gates is one of the richest man in the world, but at the beginning when he tried to start a company, it was a huge loss. Famous author Steven King’s popular novel, Carrie, was rejected more than 30 times before it got published.

When you see every successful person, there will be a failure story within him. Just they all learnt from their mistakes in failures and used them as a key to the success.  

Listed out the five ways where you can lead your failure to success:

Learn from the Mistakes:

Mistakes is the precious and gifted opportunity to learn something new in depth with the work you have done. The least it teaches you not to repeat the same mistake and never be afraid of making them. Till you reach your success, there will be more failures and mistakes than you will ever remember, but if you take it as a lesson from each mistakes and you will get more wisdom who never dares anything will.

Failure teach where you stand at your work:

Knowing about yourself is the important factor in achieving success. Few things teach about ourselves, like where you stand at the work you are doing and how far you are aware about the same. Failure means you have courage, you have the strength to endure and face it. It shows you that you have the capacity to face all kinds of failures and to accept them and value them as an experience. It’s very important to remind ourselves what lead up to a particular failure.

Don’t try to Hide your failure:

We all have a mind-set to remember our victories alone and forgot our failures. It will be very useful if you keep a track of your failures. Talk to yourself about the failures and keep a journal and reminders of your failures. The idea is to not to completely think about the failure, but to value them and use it as an experience in order to avoid the same mistake in future.

Failure is the road to Success:

It seems illogic but a failure by definition is an unplanned outcome. It will route you to a path you would otherwise have avoided. It will take you to a place you would otherwise never have gone. If any unplanned things happened, we should consider it as an opportunity. Pay close attention to the opportunities that your failures give you and indeed you have to be open to them.

Failure is a Part of Success:

Without failure there is no success, failure is a part of success and opposite of success is apathy. Those who have failed many times are the people that succeed most often. Without giving up, they try again and again until they reach the success. You will never make it, if you quit at the first loss.

So the point here is, don’t feel low and stop when you face any failures. Use them as an experience and keep on trying at one point you will reach your success. Good luck!

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?

Before getting into the topic let’s see how your body processes the food you eat, in order to provide all your body cells with the energy they need. And also what happens to the energy when you have diabetes and the system doesn’t work properly.

When you eat food that contains carbohydrates, its broken down in the stomach and digestive system, into glucose, which is a type of sugar. Our body needs glucose from food because that’s what gives us energy. Carbohydrate containing foods are things like Sugary foods, Starchy foods and some dairy products, and fruit. This glucose then moves into the blood stream and the body detects that the blood glucose level is rising.

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

In response to that, the pancreas, a little gland that sits just underneath the stomach, starts to release a hormone called “Insulin”. It’s insulin which helps our body to get energy from the food we eat.  The blood stream then takes the glucose and the insulin to every cell in our body that needs it. To make this easier to understand let’s talk about the muscle cells. At the muscle cells, it’s insulin that allows the glucose to get into the cells, where it can be used for energy. It’s a bit like insulin is a key unlocking the door to the cells, so the glucose can get in. In that way, the glucose level starts to decrease but the blood glucose level can be topped up at any point by the liver releasing extra glucose that it has stored.

The blood glucose rises again and again the pancreas produces more insulin to move with that glucose through the blood stream to the muscle cells, open the doors, and let the glucose in.

The body functions better with blood at an optimum level. It doesn’t like it if the blood glucose rises too high. Normally there is a cycle within the body which balances out the glucose and the insulin level and this is achieved by the food you eat, the pancreas and the liver.

CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

However, for some people, the system doesn’t work properly and they will develop diabetes. Mainly there were two types of diabetes, Type-I and Type-II.

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?

Type – I Diabetes:

In type I diabetes, the body isn’t making any insulin at all. This is because of an auto-immune response whereby the body has destroyed the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. We don’t entirely know why that happens in some people and not in others. About 15% of all cases falls into Type I diabetes. The most common type found in childhood. In Type-I diabetes the carbohydrate-containing food is broken down into glucose as normal. That glucose then moves into the blood stream. Normally, the body would produce insulin to let that glucose into the cells, but in type I diabetes, there is no insulin being produced so the glucose can’t get into the body cells at all. So the level of glucose in the blood rises and rises. The body then tries to decrease the level of glucose; it tries to get rid of the glucose through the kidneys. That’s why people who have undiagnosed type I diabetes tend to go the toilet a lot to pass urine.

The kidneys filter the glucose out of the blood and also take a lot of water with it, so the person with diabetes will get very thirsty. The urine contains more of glucose which creates an environment where it’s quite easy for bacteria to thrive, so it’s also quite common to get thrush or genital itching. Likewise, the blood haves a high level of glucose as well, so more bacteria than usual will tend to breed in flesh wounds, and they might be slow to heal.

CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

Glucose can also build up in the lens at the front of the eye causing the liquid in the lens to become cloudy. That can mean that some people with undiagnosed type I diabetes can have blurred vision. Because the glucose can’t get into the cells to be used for energy, somebody who’s got undiagnosed type I diabetes is going to start feeling very tired, lethargic and unable to go about their normal daily routine. But the body still needs an energy source in order to work properly. So what it does is, it starts to break down its fat stores and that can lead to weight loss.

Type – II Diabetes:

Over 85% of people falls under type – II diabetes. It is a little more complex because there’s slightly more processes at work. Either the body isn’t producing quite enough insulin, or the insulin it is producing isn’t working properly. That can be due to overweight, because a build-up of fat can stop insulin doing its job properly but it can also happen in people of a healthy weight.

So in type- II diabetes, the carbohydrate containing food is broken down into glucose in the stomach and digestive system as normal. That glucose then moves into the blood stream. The pancreas starts to produce insulin, which moves with the glucose through the blood stream to all the body cells which need glucose for energy. However, the glucose can’t always get into the cells because the locks to the cell doors have become furred up with fat deposits. That means that the insulin can’t open the cell doors properly. So the level of glucose in the blood continues to rise.

In response to this, the pancreas produces even more insulin, so the blood glucose levels continue to rise and the insulin levels continue to rise. This situation is further complicated by the cells, who are desperate for energy, sending out emergency signals to the liver to release stored glucose. The blood glucose level goes up and up and the pancreas produces more and more insulin, until it can’t cope anymore and eventually it wears out.

The symptoms of type – II diabetes come along very slowly and some people don’t have any symptom at all. So, for that reason, people can live with type II diabetes for up to 10 years before that realize that they have it. Type II diabetes can be treated in a number of different ways. Initially It may be sufficient to make changes to the food you’re eating and to take extra physical activity or lose any weight that be appropriate.

5 Reasons why you need to walk daily?

As everyone know walking is the man’s best medicine. Walking along with proper sleep and balanced diet can help you to get rid of doctors. 15-30 minutes of walking every day can drastically change a person’s overall appearance as well as health.

Walking

Walking

Positivity:

Walking will actually give you a positive mind for the entire day. It prevents early dementia, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and improves the mental health.

Prevent Heart problems:

According to the research walking is no longer less than running when it comes to prevention of heart related diseases. It reduces the high blood pressure level to lower and controls cholesterol level by improving blood circulation.

Increase lung volume:

Walking is an aerobic exercise which increases oxygen flow in the bloodstream and helps train your lungs, as well as eliminate toxins and waste. Because of better and deeper breathing some symptoms associated with lung diseases may also be relieved.

Improve Digestion:

30-45 minutes of walking daily will not only lower the risk of colon cancer in the future but improve our digestion and constipation by helping to regulate our bowel movements.

Bones and Joints:

Walking daily can actually provide more joint mobility, prevent loss of bone mass and even reduce the risk of fractures. Generally, doctors recommend walking moderately at least 30 minutes a day on a regular basis to reduce pain in your joints, along with stiffness and inflammation.

Top 5 Reasons to Drink Water!

Although water has no taste, it is the most important drink, and has become the second most popular drink (behind soft drinks) around the world. Since our bodies are made up of around 60% water, it’s a nutrient we need to function properly. Generally, it is recommended that we drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. However, that has not been scientifically proven to be true and therefore is seen as more of a guideline. This doesn’t mean you don’t need water though. It just means that no matter how many ounces of water your body needs each day, you should be able to tell by listening to your body and recognizing when it’s thirsty.

Since our bodies lose water everyday through breathing, sweating and digestion, it is important that we stay hydrated and continue to replace the water being lost. Here are 5 top reasons to drink water everyday:

Aids in digestion and helps remove waste from your body:

Digestion, which starts with saliva, needs water to help break down food and other nutrients. Once food is digested, water is then needed to help dissolve fiber and allow the body to create healthy soft stools that are easy to pass. The kidneys, intestines and liver also rely on water to flush out waste and move food through your intestinal tract.

Helps control calories:

While water won’t make you magically drop pounds, substituting it for other beverages such as soda, will definitely help. In addition, water-rich foods are also good because they are healthier, more filling and aid in trimming calorie intake. Water-rich foods are also absorbed more slowly by the body, which helps you feel fuller for longer. Water-rich foods include oatmeal, beans, fruits and vegetables.

Energizes muscles and maximizes physical performance:

When muscles don’t have an adequate amount of water, they become fatigued and performance is affected. Therefore, fluid intake is important before, during and after exercising or participating in any kind of physical activity that causes you to sweat and lose water. Dehydration can lead to altered body temperature, decreased motivation, increased fatigue and overall difficulty with physical and mental activity.

Helps to prevent and treat headaches:

Dehydration headaches are one of the most common forms of headaches. Dehydration reduces your blood volume which affects the amount of oxygen-rich blood flowing to the brain. The result: pain. Drinking enough water will prevent these kinds of headaches and even migraines from happening. Several studies have also shown that water can reduce the intensity and the duration of those headaches.

Helps keep your skin glowing:

Drinking enough water can make a big difference in how your skin looks. Without enough water your skin can look duller, and wrinkles and pores are more noticeable. Water plumps up the skin filling in pores and wrinkles, making them less apparent. Also, when skin is hydrated it is less likely to become dry and cracked. When your skin isn’t cracking, it makes it harder for bacteria to get in and cause blemishes.
