Simple Techniques For Improving Memory

Keeping your brain active at all times will help to ensure that brain is able to practice good memory skills. This would refer to you training your brain to remember facts, descriptions, figures, addresses and such. As time goes by, your brain will continue to grow and develop and hence you will need to feed it. Alternatively, you can keep your brain active by working on mind-boggling puzzles, mind games and crosswords. At the same time, introduce yourself to newer things like learn a new language or new sport to help to keep your brain thinking and working at all times.

When the going gets tough, some people will just explode and let their rage out. Some prefer to stay quiet, but deep down; they compress all stress and anger inside.

Diet Tips to Prevent Heartburn

Because heartburn is only a symptom of a more complicated medical condition known as GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) or acid reflux, we need to know if new diet plans will act on the true, underlying causes. It is important to know that recurring heartburn cannot be dispatched in a permanent way without a full holistic treatment that clearly identifies the root causes.

New diet habits must bring down this excess of stomach acidity, but must also take account of a malfunctioning sphincter. Therefore new diet habits must simultaneously work with both aspects of acid reflux. We describe seven simple axes for diets below as initial actions to get to a holistic, all-natural treatment for GERD: Reduce the quantity of each meal. The bigger the meal, the more the stress on the digestive system, the more the level of stomach acidity and the greater the risk of compounding an existing acid reflux condition. 5-6 smaller meals per day is better than 2-3 big meals [Read more]

Gourmet Chocolate – Luxurious and Decadent or Wholesome and Healthy?

Good quality chocolate is not only a pleasure to eat but also has considerable health benefits over the rather more unpleasant ‘candy’ style products which are laden with sugars and additives. The high quality of the ingredients ensures that the vitamins and minerals which are essential to good health are present in a form which is easily accessible to the body providing nutrition and allowing the release of endorphins within the brain that raise your mood and make you feel better.

The cocoa beans used in quality chocolate are finely ground before being mixed with the other ingredients and the length of the cooking time is critical to the development of the flavors as well as the consistency of the finished product – and most important, how smoothly it melts. Chocolate should never be chewed, but rather allowed to gently wrap itself around your tongue before melting away leaving the memory of its flavor lingering in the mouth and the mind [Read more]

The Bottled Water Myth

Bottled water is much less regulated than tapped water. In fact, bottled water companies, because they are not under the same accountability standards as municipal water systems, may provide a significantly lower quality of water than the water from a tap. Bottled water is one of the least regulated industries and is usually held to less-stringent standards than ordinary tap water.

Since tap water is a public resource the quality and content must be made public to the consumer. Bottled water has no such regulations and is regulated more like a soft drink than a public resource. The truth is that often bottled water is little more than tap water in a bottle. The Federal regulations that govern the quality of bottled water only apply if it is transported across state lines, and then they only require it to be as good as tap water. Most bottled water is bottled and sold within the same state to avoid Federal purity standards therefore there are no assurances or requirements that bottled water is any safer or better than tap water [Read more]
