Social Items

There are ladies on whom you look and are surprised: always in motion, do ten cases in parallel and - the most unpleasant - everyone is in time. What is this special form of life? The awl in the ass? No, alas, to turn into a girl-energojzera awla will not help you, it generally has nothing to do with it. But our advice and training is easy.

Check with the hour

There is nothing supernatural about the fact that energy (and, therefore, efficiency) jumps during the day. As in any other living organism, something is constantly changing in you. The level of hormones, blood pressure and even body temperature. Let and it is absolutely insignificant, but all the same. Such changes in the nature and intensity of the processes occurring in you are called the biological rhythm. Under it, you can, first, adjust. Better yet, it can even be adjusted to achieve improved physiological performance and clarity of thinking, when (and if) you need them. But first you need to study your biorhythm.

In the morning you are full of energy, and after lunch you literally fall asleep? Calm is normal.

7:30 Lift my eyelids
Within the first half hour after awakening, your reactions and thought processes are slightly slowed down. The reason for this - a low level of cortisol, which "kicks" you in stressful situations. His rise will remove the shroud from his eyes. The main thing - do not forget to have breakfast. Otherwise, the level of the hormone will rise too high, and you will become extremely unpleasant - nervous and irritable.

8:00 - 12:00 Working noon
The energy that comes with breakfast activates the neurotransmitters of the brain, improving the communication between its cells. Simply put, right now - between breakfast and lunch - activity is at its peak (not the highest for the whole day, and yet). To squeeze out of this state a maximum, take on tasks that require critical thinking: appoint in the morning business meetings, carry out transactions. A routine such as filling in papers or searching the Internet for compromising on its former leave on the decline of activity.

12:00 - 17:00 Siesta
Spaniards are fixated not only on sangria and paella. A quiet hour also deserves their friendly "Ole!". After lunch, the body for some reason throws a portion of the melatonin sleep hormone into the blood, and you begin to peck with your nose. Do not fall asleep completely and irrevocably will help daylight and fresh air. For example, a 20-minute walk to the nearest coffee shop and back.

17:00 - 20:00 The last spurt
Now - the highest peak of your activity, since morning. The organism as though hints: finish with work and at last borrow or occupy in private life. Well, what - follow the advice. Why argue with a wise organism?

20:00 - 6:30 The exciting moments
Closer to the night, you go through a cycle of changing states. Then suddenly excited and, it seems, ready to cocks (or whoever is waking you up) to chat with a friend on the phone, then suddenly start yawning and reach for the pillow. As a result, melatonin, of course, will prevail and wish you good night.

Hear it All - Find Your Biorhythm

There are fewer and fewer people who go to hurdles today: what is the point, if the majority personally participate in a similar competition five days a week? Traffic jams, gloomy faces, static poses - watches held in captivity of a car, bus or train on their way to and from work, do not make earthlings cheerful or healthier. However, you can win even in this quest.

"The number of people who used to spend an hour before work, and now - one and a half or more, has increased dramatically in recent years," noted Alan Pisarsky, analyst, road problems researcher and author of the report "The Road from Home to Work." - The traffic jams and the global economic crisis are to blame for all, or, to be more precise, its consequences - unemployment and a disgusting situation in the housing market. Some were forced to agree to at least some work on the opposite end of the city, others had to move from a decent quarter to the god-forgotten areas in order to save on renting an apartment. And the average urban resident began spending on the road from home to office and back at best two hours a day, or 19 days a year! "


Alan was embarrassed to call things by their proper names, and we are not accustomed to: 19 days is more than we spend on family dinners, in the arms of loved ones or in the gym. God be with him, with fitness - worse another: daily collisions with mediocre drivers and the struggle for a free place in public transport are formed into chronic fatigue - the one that dulls all human feelings and the very desire to live. As an eternally dissatisfied mother-in-law, the road routine drives you into stress, negatively affects your personal life and provokes health problems. And more news: the female psyche of the burdens of displacement in space, it turns out, affect more than the male. Do not wait until the inner voice tells you to kill the driver of the minibus, and try to make friends with time on the road. They say that there are people,

The rules for fighting stress at the wheel

Everyone who has ever been caught in a traffic jam - especially with a full bladder - knows how little that is pleasant. Hysterical whistles, brainless pedestrians, the sonorous voice of the chief in the mobile phone - this is enough to turn gray before the time, and it does not matter whether you drive yourself or drive through the crowded streets in the trolleybus. But the worst thing, as the psychologist Vitaliy Karpukhin assures, is the inability to predict the course of events. "Stress occurs when you do not know how long the road will take to the destination," the expert said. "Therefore, stuck in a traffic jam, you are especially keenly aware that you are trapped, while someone quietly walks on their own or goes by metro." You have only seven ways not to go insane in insane traffic.

Follow the road
"Take the fact that the traffic is inevitable, since you are working in a big city," advises Tim Lomax, chief engineer of the Texas Transport Research University. "But in order to protect yourself from unpleasant surprises, take the rule to check the condition of traffic congestion before leaving and have several alternate routes and modes of transport in stock."

Change your way
The habit of going to work by the beaten path from year to year, without changing the route and without straining the brains, inevitably gives a sense of running around in a circle. Turn off your autopilot at least a couple of times a week: finding a new road to the old office will not only provide food for the mind, but also make the routine trip more interesting.

Spending time with the mind
Girls tend to keep several tasks in their heads at the same time (pick up the shoes from the repair, turn the turn signal, fix the bangs, give a horn to the taxi driver), thereby shaking their own emotional state and increasing the risk of getting into an accident. But since you're bored just watching the mirrors and twisting the steering wheel, make an exception in favor of your favorite tunes (just select the wave and create a playlist in advance so as not to be distracted from the road). For public transport passengers, this advice is also relevant: a recent study conducted by PLoS ONE magazine showed that music makes it easier to carry long-distance trips. People who have cheerful tracks on their headphones are less likely to engage in skirmishes with skinheads and rush into the train.

Think about quality
The movement around the city and along the highway is not only distinguished by the consumption of gasoline. "Stop-go-stop" is the most unpleasant of all driving modes, because the infinite switching between the brake and the gas increases the physical and moral tension. And although a trip around the city is usually a short distance travel, such driving does not bring psychological satisfaction and all the more joy. "Rushing for an hour and a half 130 kilometers is much more pleasant than 90 minutes in convulsions to make their way through three quarters," says your old friend Alan Pisarsky. Do not be afraid to make a route longer than usual, where traffic lights, tram tracks and zebras with schoolchildren will not irritate you, and you will see that the road will cease to seem so dreary.

Wei nest
Use every free minute on the road to relax and relieve tension. You can sneer as much as you like over the aunts who are knit in the subway or carpet the photos of the kittens, but monotonous studies and a fleeting look at pleasant things do give them the right emotional charge and the strength to reach their goals.

Think Traditions
Take the rule of starting the day with something pleasant - for example, with a cup of coffee in your favorite cafe. Such cute rituals will provide you with a favorable attitude and will be a reward for the exhausted psyche.

Look for benefits
Swiss economists have calculated that those who get to work at least an hour, earn 40% more than those who live near the office. Perhaps the phenomenon is related to the fact that distraught managers do not go home at all in order not to lose time, but this is not about that. Your way from home to work and back will surely cease to seem hard labor if you present a mountain of bags and shoes that you can buy, since you are 40 percent richer than you expected. If your boss stubbornly ignores the hints of scientists, try to look for other delights. Maybe your post is so beautiful, what is the road torture? Or, thanks to traffic jams, did you finally learn French?

Warm up for a motorist

Do not be very happy if someone gave you a seat on the bus: according to doctors, a prolonged stay in a sitting position can provoke pain in the neck and back. And if the passengers of public transport can at least stand up and warm up, the girls behind the wheel are few.



  • Relax your neck

Comfortable position of the head - the most important, if you intend to spend a couple of hours behind the wheel. Concentrating on the road, do not lean forward, but conveniently arrange the hair on the headrest. First, it will help to avoid pain in the neck, and secondly, this position of the head is considered the safest, happen accident.

  • Lean back

Do not slide down - this increases the tension of the vertebral discs. But do not straddle strictly upright, leaning on the steering wheel. The most comfortable position - to sit, slightly leaning on the back of the seat.

  • Repeat bends

To remove tension from the lumbar region, fold a towel (scarf, unbound sweater, running past the cat) and lay it in the empty space between the lower part of the seat back and your soft spot.

Get Rid of Stress At The Wheel

A man tries not to remember this, but you do not forget. So, he wanted you, but he could not back up the desires with actions. And, most sad, it's not the first time with you.

It's one thing, when a little unstable turned out to be a minor in your bed character. Nobody will condemn, if you do not begin to conduct intimate conversations with him, spare his self-esteem and answer the calls. Quite the opposite - if the problems with an erection were overtaken by a man whom you seriously consider your half, and children are called dad. We believe that you do not agree with humbleness of sex forever. Then say thank you to Women's Health: we collected all the scientific data on erectile dysfunction and realized what should and should not be done by a woman who wants to help her partner cope with intimate problems.

According to WHO, 150 million men in the world suffer from erectile dysfunction

To begin with, make sure that you do not dramatize and that there is something wrong with your man. "The term" erectile dysfunction ", which physicians usually replace the vulgar" impotence ", has a clear definition, - recalls the senior lecturer of the Department of Urology MGMSU, Cand. Alexander Bernikov. - This is the inability to achieve an erection or complete sexual intercourse for three consecutive months, regardless of the age of the man . Stress, discord in the family, trauma or illness can be the reason that a person in a certain period of life or from time to time can not achieve an erection. But only if this condition lasts more than three months, it should be regarded as a dysfunction. "

If in your bedroom everything is exactly as described by the doctor, one reason for joy is nevertheless: lethargy of the penis, whatever the reasons it may be caused, is perfectly treatable. The main problem, perhaps, is to drag a man to the doctor. "I often see patients who, before appearing in my office, for years, or even decades, lived with erectile problems," the urologist Alexander Bernikov mourns. - Excuses are always standard: "It's just stress, you need to rest - and everything will pass", "I'm already too late to have sex," "I do not want anyone to know about my difficulties." Needless to say, for years these men and their companions were not happy, although it would be possible to solve the problem with modern methods of treatment at the first consultation. " The conclusion begs one: do not want to grow old in anticipation of the night of love - act,

Error 1. Search for problems in his head

And you, and 80% of men are sure that the lack of an erection has purely psychological reasons and it's enough to knock out a bigger salary (or to marry a student, or go to Fiji), how everything will turn up at once. In fact, only 20% of cases require psychotherapy, and the vast majority of men suffer from trivial disorders in the vascular system that interfere with a full sexual life. And the condition of the vessels, alas, did not improve the dance by a pole or a frank conversation.

Error 1. Search for problems in his head

Mistake 2. Blame yourself all

Each unsuccessful attempt to raskochegarit man in bed produces complexes not only in his head. "I'm already 28 - it's clear, the old woman does not excite him," - even the most confident girls visit bad thoughts about themselves. At such moments it is useful to remember that the violation of blood supply to the penis and, as a consequence, problems with erection are the abuse of alcohol and tobacco, love for fatty foods and a sedentary lifestyle. Only if you taught him to drink and be lazy, you can sprinkle ashes on his head.

Error 3. Blaming the whole man

Sex is especially good after a fight, but if the scandal broke out because of sex, you can not count on success. On the other hand, when sexual hormones are bubbling in the blood, and discharge does not happen, especially want to shout something evil, like: "I knew it: you have someone! And then go to her! "But it's better for you to keep silent: a man who can not justify himself for his powerlessness should not justify himself in treason. So, you know, not far and to the problems with erection, caused by psychogenic factors.

Mistake 4. Give up sexual intercourse

Inactivity is detrimental to sexual health, and avoiding intimate contact for fear of disappointment is the worst thing to do. Deliver to each other the pleasure of men and women, fortunately, can even with difficulties with erection. In the end, the time of treatment can be a chance for couples to try something new, to show imagination and even revive an intimate life.

Mistake 5. Focus on sex

By forcing a man to consult with specialists, do not focus on the fact that you are worried about the lack of an intimate life or your relationships themselves. From a medical point of view, erectile dysfunction is just a symptom of serious problems in the human vascular system and a signal that a stroke, a heart attack and other deadly pathologies have already chosen their prey. Therefore, in conversation it is more important to emphasize that you are concerned about the health of a loved one, and an erection is so, ugh!

Mistake 6. Panic

Erectile dysfunction is curable in the vast majority of cases, but sometimes it takes time to choose a method of treatment or concentration of drugs. Do not panic if an hour after the visit to the doctor the man did not attack you with a wild beast - just once again support him in an uneasy decision to discuss his problem with a specialist.

Comment of a doctor-sexologist, psychotherapist:
"Erectile dysfunction is just a symptom that will tell a specialist about the somatic and psychogenic problems of a person. And to make the diagnosis of "no erection" is as strange as, for example, "fever" instead of "pneumonia." If, during masturbation, the degree of hardness is sufficient to enter and the patient even has morning erections at least sometimes - this clearly demonstrates the safety of the body component. Such a man does not need the treatment of a urologist or an endocrinologist - it is the prerogative of a sexologist who "works" both with what is above the belt and with what is lower. The specialist will help to prevent the development of the syndrome of anxious expectation of sexual failure or to outline the ways of treatment. The problem is sometimes solved in just one step, when the doctor explains the mechanisms of this disorder, corrects the settings and gives clear recommendations to the couple.

6 Of Your Mistakes With His Impotence

Here's the news: green tea is good not only for brewing. Get to know him more closely and use it safely not only for the purpose.

If you ever went to a decent tea shop, you probably noticed that there are about one million kinds of green tea sold there. Despite the fact that they all "grew up" from one bush of camellia Chinese (Camellia sinensis), the final taste and aroma of the drink depend on where the leaf that floated in your cup grew, and what was done with it before he got there .

Six months from the time of production are kept stocks of antioxidants in green tea.
All About Green Tea

Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so it contains much more useful, tasty and beautiful antioxidants of catechins. Especially recommend epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which increases attention, enhances resistance to ultraviolet radiation and reduces the risk of certain types of cancer.

An interesting fact is that in Asia green tea is not only drunk, but is also added to food. Not only because of the taste and health benefits, but also because it increases the rate of fat burning, and this is the third reason to include it in the diet. We also believe that green tea is an excellent natural ingredient, flavor and color. Therefore, let us tell you what the six popular varieties of this drink differ from each other and how to prepare them correctly.

MatchMatch

Leaves in production are rubbed into powder, which you drink from the cup along with the decoction. Thanks to this you get more antioxidants than from other varieties of the drink. One cup of tea match on the content of different "utilities" equated to ten cups of ordinary green tea (!). This drink contains a lot of chlorophyll, for which it was beautifully nicknamed "jade".
Taste: full of herbal.
Recipe: add a teaspoonful of powder to a smoothie cocktail or sprinkle with vanilla ice cream. A noble bitterness will set off the sweetness of dessert.

HodzicHodzic

In 1920, the Japanese decided to fry the stale tea and see what would come of it (do not throw away the good). So horseradish variety appeared unromantic. The leaves are fried or baked until they turn brown and give away most of the caffeine contained in them.
Taste: nutty, with a haze.
Recipe: mix any fruit juice and icy gadzich tea in a 1: 1 ratio. This cocktail contains almost no caffeine, so even children can drink it in liters. In addition, gedzicha will dilute the sweetness of the juice and reduce its calorie content.

The Well of the DragonThe Well of the Dragon

It is better to cook this variety in glassware to admire how the tea leaves elegantly turn into leaves and buds. And do not forget that the drink contains vitamin C, amino acids and a whole bunch of catechins, and therefore has rejuvenating and cleansing properties.
Taste: soft, chestnut.
Recipe: cut freshly cut fresh leaves, mix with olive oil. Scrunch this piece of baked chicken and immediately eat it. The tea ingredient of the dish will relieve your body of toxins and toxins.

SenchaSencha

The Japanese drink it more often than other drinks and are lovingly called "spider paws". When brewing, it stains the water in a golden green color, and the tea leaves look like long and thin legs of a spider - you can not imagine anything more beautiful! Sencha is perfect for almost any dish. At the same time, drink it preferably without sugar, to feel a sweet aftertaste. This tea can be brewed two or three times, but the best taste - after the first brew. Refreshes and quenches thirst, so it is suitable for gatherings in the heat.
Taste: soft, sweet.
Recipe: whisk in a blender 300 grams of forest berries, 1 teaspoon of honey, a sprig of mint, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Add a cup of brewed strained cold sencha tea.
Kokeicha, "tea from sticks"

Kokeicha, "tea from sticks"Kokeicha, "tea from sticks"

It is done in a cunning way - from the stems of a tea bush with the addition of sea water and algae - and is considered more refined than a leaf drink. Rich in iodine and trace elements, it contains a lot of fluoride. The Japanese even use a powder of kokeich tea for cleaning their teeth.
Taste: light, soft, with woody notes.
Recipe: Prepare the marinade for fish or seafood (mix the juice of a couple of lemons, 6 tablespoons of white wine, a pinch of nutmeg, salt, pepper and finely chopped dill) and add a couple of teaspoons of the kakeich tea. This "spice" is most like "halibut and scallop. Their sweetish taste, seasoned with tea with a barely perceptible shade of algae, becomes more balanced.

GanpauderGanpauder

In production, the tea leaves are first fried in a pan, and then rolled into balls. Now this is basically an automated process, but the most expensive types of ganpowder are still folded manually. The common name for this tea was given to the English (gunpowder in translation from English - "gunpowder"), the Chinese call it more romantic - Pearl.
Taste: rich, tart.
Recipe: with gankpoderom well prepare the famous Moroccan tea. For three servings take 1 tablespoon ganpaudera, 10 sprigs of mint (preferably fresh), 2 tablespoons of sugar. Pour it all boiling water, drink in a pleasant company and understand why Moroccans drink this drink from morning till night.

All About Green Tea

In the morning you look the way nature wants, in the evening - like yourself. WH learned what to do to please yourself and others around the clock. Starting at sunrise.


Your skin's work schedule

To begin with, you and your skin have different biological rhythms. Early in the morning, when you are still sleeping, she wakes up: microcirculation increases, blood flows to the dermis, the production of collagen is activated. Closer to noon, when you are fully awake, the skin "freezes", goes into protection mode, and the rate of cell division at this time is the lowest. Accumulated for a day, fatigue and stress in the evening cause a spasm in the muscles, slowing the blood circulation and, consequently, the ability of the dermis to self-renew, but at night the most interesting begins.

Secrets Of Night Skin Care

The dark time of the day for the skin is a period of regeneration, which occurs on several levels. While you carelessly look at dreams, all processes of vital activity of cells are accelerated (from 23.00 to 04.00 the speed of their division increases eight times), the body starts the process of self-cleaning - toxins leave it through the lymphatic system. If you decide to measure the temperature of the body at night, you will notice that it is stably higher than in the daytime: this is a sign of increased microcirculation. And yet, as soon as it starts to get dark, the body produces a hormone melatonin, which regulates biorhythms of the body.
This, as we recall, is a natural absorber of free radicals that protects the skin from premature aging, and the body - from stress. The maximum amount of hormones is produced by midnight, and after four in the morning it falls sharply. Melatonin is afraid of light, so it is better to sleep in a night mask - it helps not only to fall asleep more easily, but also to make sleep better.

Prepare your face for a dream

The way you look in the morning, in many respects depends on how you took care of the skin in the evening.
  1. Try to develop a habit in yourself: I returned home in the evening, went to wash my hands - and immediately cleared my face.
  2. Night care products should be applied until midnight (ideally from 22.00 to 23.00), so that the effect of the product falls on the period of active production of melatonin.
  3. Carefully choose night care products - during sleep, the skin is cleansed, the muscles of the face are relaxed, and the means penetrate deeper layers more easily. Refuse to use creams that only simulate moisturizing (such contain film-forming components - lanolin, paraffin, petrolatum and waxes).
  4. Most people sleep on their sides or face down. The older you get, the less elastic the skin becomes. With age, it takes more time to "crack down", recover. The earlier you accustom yourself to sleep on your back and / or on an orthopedic pillow, the better.

How to properly awaken the skin


  1. Many people do not understand why you need to cleanse the skin at the beginning of the day - in the evening you take off your makeup and pollution, and what's in the morning? It's simple: during the night sweat accumulates on the surface of the face, the secret of the sebaceous glands, the products of the vital activity of the cells. Remember, morning wash should be part of your mandatory nursing program.
  2. Bags under the eyes are a typical problem at the beginning of the day. The skin around the eyes is thinner than anywhere else, so excess fluids are most noticeable in this area. Perhaps you are applying your eye cream or gel to the mobile eyelid - never do it.
  3. To swelling as quickly as possible, try the following: when you will apply the morning care product, for a few seconds, press on two points - at the outer corner of the eye and the inner. This will enhance microcirculation.
  4. Dark circles are another problem. If you sleep well, but still suffer from them, the cause of bruising can be an allergy or sinusitis - both expand the blood vessels. In any case, better than concealer did not come up with anything. Choose a shade (it should not be lighter than your natural, and then bruises will be even more visible) and enjoy.
  5. If you need an instant result, put the cream and serum in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then apply them. Express masks are also good. From the usual, they are distinguished by a higher content of active components. Use masks no more often than twice a week and choose, listening to the advice of consultants. After all, if you have dry skin, then silicones will go to her good, if fat or combined, then only to the detriment.

Secrets Of Night Skin Care

Intensive circular training, consisting of simple but energy-intensive exercises, is a more effective assistant in burning calories than traditional long cardio.

Moreover, this "race" stimulates the metabolism and activity of muscle tissue - it means that the body will spend excess energy even on those hours and days when you will rest. Is it tempting? Then train on our scheme two or three times a week, trying to do the maximum number of repetitions of each exercise in 60 seconds. The rest time between exercises should be kept to a minimum - ideally not more than 5-10 seconds. But, when you complete all four (set), you have the right to rest until your breathing and strength are completely restored. In total there are three sets in the complex. If you make friends with this training, increase the duration of the approach to 90 seconds.
