Can stretching make you taller?

8 Jan

There is nothing wrong with being short, and for most of the time, height can be quite subjective, which means what is short or tall to you might be perceived differently by others. But, there’s also nothing wrong with wanting more height.

However, aiming to add those extra inches takes a lot of dedication, particularly if you’re already beyond your growth spurt age. Being in such a challenge will likely bring up some question, such as: what you should eat, what supplements you should take, or even as odd-sounding as -can stretching make you taller? Well, I’m here to answer such queries.

Aura: The ‘Invisible’ Human Energy Field

4 Mar

Have you ever experienced instantly disliking a person even without talking to him? You just dislike that person for no apparent reason. And then, of course, there are also people you feel an instant connection to, and for no obvious explanation as well. People who are kindred spirits and when you start talking to them; something just clicks right into place.

What you may be feeling, or more accurately sensing, is that person’s aura. But what is an aura? How come you can sense it?


The Human Aura

The aura is a multilayered, multicolored energy field that radiates around a person in soft and subtle waves barely perceptible to the human eye. All living things radiate an aura and your aura can tell a whole lot of things about you.

Chakras inside you produce the energy that make up your aura. A chakra is a spiritual center in your body with the seven main chakras aligned along spinal column. Your thoughts, feelings as well as the food you eat fuel the chakras. When all these things come together, a rainbow of pulsating energy is formed around the physical body.

The Different Layers of the Human Aura

There are three main layers of the human aura – physical, emotional, and spiritual – thus your physical, emotional, and spiritual health greatly impact the colors of your aura.

The different colors of your aura represent the various aspects of your being. For instance, a deep red aura means a strong willed and grounded person while a bright silver aura may imply a spiritual awakening. A person with a brownish aura is someone who is holding on to negative energy while a person with a muddy blue aura is someone afraid to tell the truth or to express her true feelings.

Next time you attend a social gathering, try to take a step back and look around. Feel the auras of the new people around you. Are you feeling their vibe?


Things You Should Do To Start a Natural Healthy Lifestyle

1 May

Do you ever wonder why some people have more energy and stamina than you? Have you ever wondered why your colleague can still go to the gym after work while you can barely keep your eyes open? What does he eat when you are together? From the sounds of it, he has a more natural healthy lifestyle than you are.

We know many people who dreams of one day having a natural healthy lifestyle but for some reason, they just cannot start. In our modern world today where there are too much heavily-processed foods, it is certainly more tempting to fall into the easier way of opting for ready-to-eat foods.

However, everyone must realize that the road to a natural healthy lifestyle is not merely taking the easy way but the better way. Here are some of the things you can start doing to be on the road to a better lifestyle:

Know your foods.

How can you eat healthy if you do not know which foods are healthy? It is time to wake those sleepy eyes and start reading and feeding your mind with healthy topics. Know which foods are healthy and are appropriate for your body and daily needs.

If ever you find yourself standing in front of a grocery confused on which to pick, choose green leafy vegetables, fruits, and whole foods.

Always go natural.

Whenever you buy anything for your face, skin, or hair, always choose products that contain the natural ingredients, much better if these are organic. Nonetheless, you may also need to watch out for synthetically derived ingredients added to products labeled as ‘natural and organic’.

Stay away from chemical-laden products as much as possible. They might give you a quick and easy fix but they will surely take their toll and be prepared to feel their effects on your body in the long run.

Stretch your body.

Exercise as much as you can and whenever you can. This not only keeps our bodies stronger but younger as well. Try to fight the tiredness you feel after work to do some exercise and get your body worked up. You might be surprised with your skin’s new glow and renewed strength after several days of sticking to your exercise routine.

If you truly have no time as you still have to take care of the house and the kids, then make necessary adjustments. Do exercise at home or simply walk whenever you can. Stretch in the morning as you wake up and jog if you can. These small measures can still make a whole lot of difference.

Get enough sleep.

Take note that we did not use plenty but just enough. Oversleeping is just as bad or could even be worse than lack of sleep. It not only makes a person obese but it leads to a more sedentary lifestyle as you will likely feel too lazy to practically do anything.

Smile and have fun.

There is nothing better to lose your worries and stress away than smiling and having a great time. Having fun either with family or friends is an instant mood booster. Consider it your regular dose of happiness to keep you away from depression.
