“As soon as you hit the twenties bracket, you cannot grow further.” “Our height is hereditary.” The above statements are TRUE. But they are INCOMPLETE TRUTHS… AND THERE IS NO WORSE LIE THAN A TRUTH MISUNDERSTOOD!!! You have crossed twenties… remained short… tried so many products that not only take your bucks but also waste your time and shatter your confidence… and now hopelessly you are assessing that the rest of your life you have to live dwarfish. Deep inside you always wish if you could add a few more inches to your personality. Don’t Despair… You can still Grow……

How often have you heard, “I ‘m not on a diet, I’m just not eating wheat at the moment?” This is one excuse used by otherwise smart women in a bid to stay slim. Of course I don’t diet. I have a much healthier attitude to food. I’ve done the occasional detox – no wheat, no dairy, no booze, and no meat. I’ve dabbled with food combining, never mixing those evil opposites of fish and chips. I’m not alone. Dieting or old-fashioned calorie-counting is difficult, boring, and out-of-date. So instead, many women are now imposing bizarre rules on what they…

Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative! Wishing won’t make it so, but hoping just might – even in the situations that seem hopeless. If you’re a pessimist, you conduct a bleak monologue with yourself. Your boss doesn’t say “Good morning,” so you think, I messed up that presentation; I’m going to get fired. Or you watch a debate and think, Politicians are hypocrites. The pessimist believes that bad things are permanent, pervasive and unchangeable. The optimist, by contrast, believes that bad things are temporary, specific and changeable. If you scored more than eight points on the quiz on the last…

The following questions, developed by psychologist Martin Seligman, Ph.D., can give you an insight into how you see the world – in a reasonably positive light, or otherwise. This quiz and commentary are adapted from the Attributional Style questionnaire in his book Learned Optimism. Read the description of each situation and vividly imagine it happening to you. Perhaps neither response will seem to fit; go ahead anyway and circle one, choosing the cause that is likelier to apply to you. Don’t choose what you think you should say, or what you think would sound good to other people. Be yourself….

Science says you can hope for the best – and get it! Pandora, Greek myth’s Eve, was given a mysterious box by the Gods, who told her never to open it. One day, tempted, she lifted the lid – and loosed into the world all the evils now known. But she closed the box just in time to save an antidote: HOPE. The ancient myth of Pandora heralds today’s scientific fact. Some Of The Most Provocative Research Shows That The Hopeful Life Is Demonstrably A Healthier One, Too! Rigorous new studies identify hope as a powerful positive force in human…

A catalogue of techniques, technologies and tips for personal peace. Stress is unavoidable. Always has been and always will be. But unavoidable doesn’t mean unmanageable. The latest stress research shows that how you react to a stressful event is what determines its impact on your health. If you let stress bother you, it will bother you, and in ways that can be physical as well as mental. But handle stress intelligently and you will turn the enemy into an ally. Stress can motivate, invigorate, instigate and educate. It can be a kick in the pants rather than a slap in…

With a little planning, and a touch of ingenuity, you can beat the clock and make time for fitness. For many people, the biggest obstacle to exercising is lack of time. On the whole, leisure time has shrunk, while the average workweek, including commuting, has grown. But just in the nick of time, scientists at Stanford University have found that very short workouts – as brief as 10 minutes – pile up fitness benefits that approach those of longer exercise sessions, if you do them often enough. The researchers had two groups of men follow different jogging routines: One group…

‘SWEAT OUT THE FAT!’ || ‘DON’T DRINK WATER DURING EXERCISE!’ || ‘EXERCISE ONLY IN THE MORNING’ || – YOU HAVE HEARD THOSE SO OFTEN, YOU TAKE THEM AS GOSPEL TRUTHS. BUT ARE THEY? BELIEVE IT NOT! We all need a fitness regimen, it’s the modern equivalent of ‘an apple a day…’. What happens in reality, however, is that a lot of us are bound by mistaken theories and notions of exercise and consequently our fitness programs are built around a lot of unscientific information. But fitness today is a science. The Americans alone spend in excess of billions every year in search…

…And in the shoulder… and the jaw… and the arms… and the back? Muscle in with some help! Griping about inhuman bosses, unforgiving project deadlines, or promotions deserved but denied, may help you get through a high-stress job. But it does nothing for the aches you get all over – in your jaw, neck and shoulders (which often lead to headaches) and in your lower back and legs. Physicians today are seeing the same gallery of minor aches and pains all the time among their white-collar clientele. Often the underlying problem is a lack of exercise or bottled-up aggression. Executives…

Maybe you should stop envying the apparently super-fit. Every week thousands of men and women injure themselves trying to get obsessively fit. So, what’s the truth about exercise? Is it good for you? How dangerous is it? HEART If your heart is in perfect condition, then exercise is unlikely to do it any harm. But if you’ve spent years eating fatty foods, smoking, drinking and lounging around then the chances are high that your heart is already showing signs of damage. And heavy exercise could kill you. Men between ages 35 and 55 who get carried away in the gym…
