  1. SLEEP MORE: When you get enough sleep, you will not go hungry too easily when you wake up the next day.
  1. EAT AT THE RIGHT TIME: If you eat at the right schedule, you will not go hungry faster than usual. This is because the body programs itself to fit the schedule.
  1. HAVE A HEALTHY BREAKFAST: Your breakfast should have fiber in it as well as protein. These two can help suppress cravings for the rest of the day. No matter what happens though, you shouldn’t skip breakfast as this still remains the most important meal of the day
  1. KNOW WHAT TRIGGERS YOUR CRAVINGS: Sometimes, you are not hungry and yet you still crave for food. This is a phenomenon known as stress eating or emotional eating. You may want to learn what stresses you out, so you can solve the problem and stop yourself from craving for extra food.

5. EAT SOMETHING NEW: If you keep eating the same things over and over, you could end up craving for other foods. Usually, these foods are fatty and unhealthy. Have a varied diet to keep you satisfied and eventually stop your cravings.

6. KNOW WHAT YOU’RE EATING. You can keep a journal where you write down what you have eaten for today. Of course this will not stop you from craving. However, this is an effective way of curbing your appetite, especially if you could list the calorie and fat content of the food you just ate. You can also use the food journal to learn the time/s of the day when you usually feel the cravings.

7. EAT SOMETHING HEALTHY: Instead of reaching for a bar of chocolate or some cupcakes, try a healthier alternative. You can have a light yogurt when you are craving for sweets. You can also have some fruits rather than eating sugary stuff. As long as you have your health options on hand, it will be much easier for you to say no to your cravings.

 

8. DON’T MAKE IT EASY TO GAIN ACCESS ON FOODS YOU CRAVE. As the opposite of having your healthy alternatives ready, you should make sure the unhealthy foods you are craving for are not within your reach. You can have an eating plan where the healthy foods are with while the unhealthy ones are not even at your office or at home.

 

These tips can help you eliminate your cravings. While it may be difficult at first, this does not mean that you cannot do them. Picture yourself healthy and keep that image in your mind as you say no to your food cravings.

4 STEPS TO TAKE TO OVERCOME INSECURITY IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

INSECUIRY

Insecurity can be described as a phenomenon where a partner keeps having doubts about the faithfulness of his or her partner at all times. It occurs where there is lack of trust in a relationship/marriage.

With insecurity in a relationship, partners argue and blow up little issues that are not worth more than a 5 sentence explanation  into a big issue thereby, causing strains, heartaches, headaches and even destruction of a beautiful relationship.

The person that suffers the most is the partner on the receiving end or the person that is always been accused wrongly and always faced with a situation of trying to vindicate themselves with evidence/proofs .

In worse cases, Insecurity could be extremely detrimental to any relationship/marriage when the issue at hand may appear to be cheating meanwhile it is not. With an ever doubtful mind, the insecure person could take drastic actions that could lead to the death of the  accused. This is very painful especially if the accused  has always been  the faithful type with a clean past and conscience.

Lets look at steps to take in order to avoid the dangers of Insecurity in our relationship/marriages.

I) Stop Trying to be a Psychologist

Psychologist here connotes reading the mind of your partner. You need to understand that people think differently including identical twins so the perspective your partner reasons or see things might be different from the way you see things. Even if your partner is quiet over some things, you do not need to make assumptions of what they are thinking. Focus more on what you are been told so as to avoid thoughts of cheating thus insecurity.Learn to  take your partners words as they come open heartedly and do not bother about the story untold.

ii)   Leave baggage from previous relationships.

There is a popular idiom that says ; once bitten twice shy which applies to  so many aspects of our lives and including relationships. Hence, it is expected that someone who has been cheated on in their previous relationships would be more watchful and wise in their next relationship. In as much as it is good to be wiser , you have to understand that people are different and  so is every relationship.The best way to avoid insecure feeling is to let go of bad experiences in previous relationship, have an  open mind and start every relationship on fresh grounds so as to avoid issues of been overly suspicious in an attempt to protect oneself from another heartbreak.

iii)  Stop creating problems where there is none.

Insecure partners need to stop thinking there is more to what you see. Take for example, you see the zip of your partner broken and coincidentally a female colleague just walked out of his office. Then you start thinking of what could have to a broken zip. Definitely it was most likely broke in the process of him cheating on you before you walked in. You need to understand that it could have been broken on his way to work, at work or he probably did not noticed before putting on the trouser.                                                                           Learn to stop hallucinating or making a mental movie script out of any little incident you see to avoid having in issues. Ask questions and let by gone be by gone.

iv) Pray about it.

This is the beginning and end of the solution to Insecurity. You need the Grace of God to forget the past and start life on a new grounds, to be patient to hear your partner out,  to be free minded, for understanding and to see your partner in the positive Light.

Eviron Health Drink fans, you can make a change in your relationships  with God, hardwork and determination. Take all these steps and save your marriage/relationships from unnecessary fight.

Do not forget to drink a can of Eviron Health Drink while you maintain peace in your relationships.

Cheers!

LIVING A HAPPY LIFE

th “Your attitude either makes you happy or unhappy….therefore, making life happier is a matter of choice.”

We all go through various, circumstances, meet various situations every day, and some of them may not contribute to happiness, but we do not have to let them influence our reactions and feelings.

However, we can choose to keep thinking about the unhappy events, and we can choose to refuse to think about them, and instead, think about and relish the happy moments.

What is happiness?

Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. It is a feeling of inner peace and satisfaction. It is usually experienced, when there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts. This usually happens, when we do something we love to do, or when we get, win, gain, or achieve something that we value. It seems to be the outcome of positive events, but it actually comes from the inside, triggered by external events.

For most people, happiness seems fleeting and temporary, because they allow external circumstances to affect it. One of the best ways to keep it, is by gaining inner peace through daily meditation. As the mind becomes more peaceful, it becomes easier to choose the happiness habit.

Tips for happiness in daily life:

  • The first one is to be grateful. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is. No matter how many pleasant things you do, if you don’t learn to be grateful you will always see things negatively.
  • Endeavour to change the way you look at things. Always look at the bright side. The mind may drag you to think about negativity and difficulties. Don’t let it. Look at the good and positive side of every situation.
  • Think about solutions, not about problems.
  •  Listen to relaxing, uplifting music.
  • Watch funny comedies that make you laugh.
  • Each day, devote some time to reading a few pages of an inspiring book or article.
  • Watch your thoughts. Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, start thinking of pleasant things. Do not move too quick. Slow down and pay attention to the world around you.
  • Always look at what you have done and not at what you haven’t. Sometimes you may begin the day with the desire to accomplish several objectives. At the end of the day you might feel frustrated and unhappy, because you haven’t been able to do all of those things. Look at what you have done, not at what you have not been able to do.
  • Do something good for yourself everyday. It can be something small, such buying a book, eating something you love, watching your favourite program on TV, going to a movie, or just having a stroll on the beach.
  • Do one act to make others happy each day. This can be a kind word, helping your colleagues, stopping your car at the crossroad to let people cross or giving a small present to someone you love. When you make someone happy, you become happy, and then people try to make you happy.
  • Avoid envying people who are happy. On the contrary, be happy for their happiness.
  • Associate with happy people, and try to learn from them to be happy. Remember, happiness is contagious.
  • Do your best to stay detached, when things do not proceed as intended and desired. Detachment will help you stay calm and control your moods and reactions. Detachment is not indifference. It is the acceptance of the good and the bad and staying balanced. Detachment has much to do with inner peace, and inner peace is conductive to happiness.
  • Smile more often.

If you are in a relationship, pick one or two of the five ideas and integrate them into your relationship now. You will be amazed at how many nice feelings you can create quickly by taking a few simple steps.

2. Think from your partner’s perspective when it comes to matters of the heart.

3. End an argument as soon as possible, even if hugging your partner is the last thing on your mind. Don’t let a day or your partner go to bed when s/he is sad.

4. Make love regularly (if you are married), but never make a time table for it. Scheduling a time for sex makes it like homework and can start to become a bore.
