Creating strong, warm relationships is not everybody's cup of tea. Pick up ways to to bond with people. 

Show interest in people: Everybody loves a little bit of attention. More so when it's personal. So, make a personal connection with people. Ask them about their loved ones as it gives people a sense of belongingness. Bring out a human element that creates instant bonding. However, make sure to not to get too personal. Maintain that healthy warm distance in personal aspects.

Talk about their interests/hobbies/passion: It's common wisdom that people love to talk about their interests, profession, passion. Find something, an idea or a hobby that others are interested or passionate about and just ask a question. It's always wise to make the person feel wanted by knowing his/her interests or passion. It's a sure shot way to create bonding.

Be a good listener: A good listener is always a winner. Allow people to express themselves. When people talk about the problems, listen and ask pertinent questions. You get to know people through their struggles and challenges. And if you do so with empathy, then you create bonds that will last a lifetime.

Be Real: When you're comfortable, you're real. Don't pretend. Masks eventually fall. People always appreciate genuine emotions. When you are who you are, you share a part of that with the other person, creating a stronger, warmer bond.


This New Natural Testosterone Booster Has Men Everywhere Raving

It's a disturbing thought, one that usually hits after an unexpected physical challenge — like weaker workouts, slower recovery, or not performing in the bedroom the way you used to.
And though you may not "feel old," you know you don't look or feel like the man you used to be.
The issue? You might not have enough free testosterone
A person's bloodstream contains two types of testosterone: bonded testosterone and free testosterone. Bonded testosterone attaches to molecules in the body and is mostly ineffective. However, free testosterone can enter your cells easily and plays a vital role in libido, strength, stamina, and vitality.
While the market is flooded with questionable options for increasing a man's free testosterone levels, a group of researchers in Boston, Massachusetts have developed a dietary supplement that's different. It triggers the body to increase its levels of free testosterone naturally and safely.
Called Nugenix, the supplement primarily relies on an ingredient called Testofen®, which has been shown in clinical trials to boost free testosterone levels, increase sex drive, and improve libido. Adding to Nugenix's potency are additional key ingredients like zinc and vitamins B12 and B6, which have been shown to improve physical performance and strength, increase drive, and aid in recovery.
Nugenix has no harmful side effects, and has been shown to deliver improvements in strength and endurance in as little as a week. According to studies held in both Irvine, California and Queensland, Australia, users reported greater muscle definition and quicker recovery times, increased sex drive, and feelings of alertness.

4 Ways Sex Can Make Your Workouts Better

Having more sex can actually score you better results from your workouts. Solo sex counts, too!

PAIN RELIEF
Research shows that female pain tolerance increases significantly during orgasm, thanks to a rush of hormones that act as natural painkillers. Experts note the effect can linger for up to two days, so there's another payoff: You may be able to push a little harder during your next workout.

MIND GAMES
People with active sex lives tend to work out more and have better dietary habits than those who get it on less often, according to experts. Why? During sex, as well as exercise, your brain releases higher levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that fuels motivation. The brain learns to seek more both in the bedroom and the gym, says Chronister.

SWEET DREAMS
After an orgasm, levels of prolactin and oxytocin rise, bringing on a drowsy feeling, which over time helps improve sleep quality, says Chronister. That's crucial for your fitness: Sleep spikes levels of muscle-building hormones and aids recovery. (And in one study, basketball players who slept two extra hours every night for six weeks hit more free throws.)

HAPPY HEART
Research has found that women who have more orgasms and more frequent sex may have a higher resistance to coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

How to Meet the Right Person Online

How to Meet the Right Person OnlineToday, meeting a romantic partner through an online service is commonplace.  In fact, a recent survey showed that 1 in 5 couples that have married in the last three years met each other through an online dating site.  What is even more amazing is that twice as many married couples met online than in bars, at clubs, or at other social events – combined.
The reason is simple – it works. 
Today, online dating has become a huge, highly developed industry.  If you haven't tried it recently, you might be in for quite a surprise at how sophisticated and effective certain online dating services have now become.
And one company in particular, Match.com has grown to become the pre-eminant online dating service.
So, why are so many intelligent, successful singles meeting other great singles online today?
Firstly, online dating lets you get to know the basics about someone before deciding if you want to invest any time in them.  And, studies have proven that communicating online before meeting someone face-to-face significantly reduces the stress involved in your first meeting, leading to more great first dates.
The online dating process also lets people spot potential red flags before they set up a date.  It sure beats getting involved with someone and then discovering something that’s a real deal-breaker for you.
And, contrary to what some may think, research has also shown that people are generally honest about themselves online.  Most people know they will have to expose themselves at some point, so they choose to be honest, rather than disingenuous, when creating their online profiles.
Industry leader Match.com, which was launched in 1995, specializes in creating romantic opportunities so that singles are more likely to find someone special. Over the years, they’ve continued to refine their tools in order to take the lottery out of love.

Top antioxidant rich foods!

Top antioxidant rich foods!
Antioxidants are highly essential today, considering the worldwide spread of different cancers and other life-threatening health conditions.


Be it a short trip to the supermarket, or a visit to the local vegetable market, here is a list of foods that are packed with antioxidants, and you should definitely be getting them home.

Tomatoes : Probably the most versatile fruit (yes fruit!); tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, which is an amazing antioxidant that you can put to use. Also, tomatoes give you that extra boost of vitamins A and C, which help keep the body functioning to its optimum level.
Best of all, the tomato ketchup that you use so liberally, also contains a huge amount of lycopene.

Corn : A favorite in the monsoons, corn is packed full of antioxidants lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamin C. Plus, it helps protect your eyes, so be sure to load up on these on your next trip to the supermarket.

Spinach : You may hate it for all the reasons, but the fact is, Popeye got the girl (and his muscles too) thanks to this one single greenie. Loaded with iron, and an amazing blood purifier, spinach is one of the best foods to add to your diet. It also contains the antioxidant lutein, and the essentials beta carotene and zeaxanthin which help protect your body against the various ill-effects of free radical damage.

Berries : Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are not just meant to be in your ice creams, make it a point to eat these fruits raw, or as juices. Loaded with vitamin C, anthocyanins and quercetin, these berries can be added to your morning cereal, or whip up a handful of berries with a cup of yogurt, for freshly prepared fruit yogurt.

Bell peppers : They come in three colors and make your salads and pizzas colorful, but that’s just food for the eye. It may seem to be untrue, but bell peppers have more vitamin C than an orange; all the more reason to add them to your pizza toppings. Also, the threesome is known for their abundance in vitamins A, C and E.

Garlic : It adds flavor to your dishes, and keeps your heart healthy, but there’s much more to this teeny tiny herb than just this. Garlic helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol and acts as a natural antibiotic. Just a clove of garlic contains vitamins A, C, E and the essential minerals selenium, sodium, iodine, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and potassium.

The Health Benefits of Red Wine

The Health Benefits of Red WineCan wine really improve our health and increase longevity? Scientists are beginning to say "Yes!" Supposing that the theory is true -- which wines give us the most bang for the buck?
Researchers have found that red wines rich in flavonoids are best for our health. Flavonoids are best known for their antioxidant qualities and help the body resist such maladies as allergens, viruses and carcinogens.
Red wines also contain anxioxidants, which help the body resist cancer and cardiovascular disease. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah and Pinot Noir contain the highest concentrations of antioxidants and flavonoids.
Other red wines such as Merlots and red zinfandels contain fewer flavonoids, but more than most white wines. So, the best bet for drinking wine for our health is to stick to the dryer red wines.  Just because wine contains components that are central to good health doesn't give us a free rein to get plastered every night. Don't overdo it -- but adding a glass of wine to your daily diet can definitely make a difference to our health.
Paracelsus, the noted 16th-century Swiss physician wrote, "Wine is a food, a medicine and a poison - it's just a question of dose." As with almost any food or drink, wine consumed in large doses can be a detriment to our health.
Most health officials agree that one or two four-ounce glasses of wine per day can be beneficial to men, while women should limit their consumption to one four ounce serving per day.
Cardiovascular expert, Professor Roger Corder, has spent years studying the evidence of health benefits from red wine. In his new book, "The Wine Diet," he says he is convinced that most of us should include red wine in our every day lifestyle.
Corder discovered what he eventually labeled the "French Paradox." Specifically, he wondered why the French have a lower rate of heart disease despite the fact that their diet was extremely rich in fats. He concentrated his research on the southwest portion of France, where life expectancy seemed to be highest.
Professor Corder discovered that the region produces very tannic local wines, which contain the highest procyanidin (antioxidant) content of any wines, worldwide. This led him to further research on the amazing medical benefits of red wine.
While wine may not be man's ultimate elixir or fountain of youth, it certainly behooves us to consider adding a glass of wine or two to our daily diet - and raise a "toast" to our continued good health.           

Fifa World Cup 2014: Can sex hamper football?

Yes. At least, the Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chile and Mexico football authorities think so! An article on Time points out that several football teams, in the World Cup season, has come up with strict 'sex rules'. From completely banning sex to specifying the duration for which they can indulge in sex, teams have come up with a gamut of solutions for success, some of them quite bizarre.
For example, the article notes, Brazilian footballers can have sex but not 'acrobatic' sex, French players can have sex but not all night and Nigerian players can sleep with their wives while girlfriends are a strict no-no!
The strict sex-related diktat put down by several football teams, has sparked the usual debate on the necessity to ban sex to ensure the player is not hindered on ground.
"In a sign of what the world's fittest sportsmen and women get up to in the Olympic village, a record 150,000 free condoms — 15 for each competitor — have been made available to them. The phenomenal outpouring of prophylactics means there will be 50 per cent more available to athletes in London than the 100,000 handed out at the last Olympics in Beijing in 2008," The Daily Mail reported.And it's not just restricted to football. The Daily Mailreported in 2012 that 150,000 condoms had been handed out the athletes, making sure that they are suitably prepared for any kind of emergency!
However, there have been conflicted opinions on whether or not sportsmen and women and athletes should have sex before a crucial performance.
Time notes, "Many coaches and athletes believe that abstaining from sex builds up aggression, a belief that probably stems from ancient civilizations like the Greeks, who thought that men derived strength from their semen. This theory is so pervasive that even Muhammed Ali refused to have sex six weeks before a fight, fearing that ejaculation would release the testosterone (and therefore aggression) he needed for a boxing match."
However, most other scientific studies have proved otherwise. An article on Plos observes, "Despite the extravagant stories exchanged between males in locker rooms, a normal session of business time between married partners results in the expenditure of only 25-50 calories, and it’s thus unlikely to influence next day energy stores."
Most of the arguments against sex, however, are based on the perception that sex has psychological repercussions which might reflect on an athlete's performance. But no scientific study has been found to attest the same.
Ian Shrier, a sports medicine specialist, has been quoted on the National Geographic News as saying that the 'long-standing myth that athletes should practice abstinence before important competitions may stem from the theory that sexual frustration leads to increased aggression'.
"After three months without sex, which is not so uncommon for some athletes, testosterone dramatically drops to levels close to children's levels," he said. "Do you think this may be useful for a boxer?" Emmanuele A Jannini of the University of L'Aquila in Italy is quoted as saying in National Geographic.
In fact, an article on Greatist.com, suggests that sex, the night before a big game, could actually be beneficial. It cites one study which says that testosterone boost from an orgasm might actually boost muscle strength and leg power for men. Whereas, for women, hormones released during an orgasm can actually 'stop the release of pain transmitters' for close to 24 hours. Which means it could help relax sore muscles and reduce muscle pain.
An article on CNN quotes Maria Cristina Rodríguez Gutierrez, director of sports medicine at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, as saying, "Sex only burns between 200 and 300 kilocalories, which doesn't compare to running a marathon or just a regular workout session. You can restore these calories by eating a chocolate bar or drinking a can of soda."
However, the Bosnia coach, who warned, 'there will be no sex in Brazil', is not listening! Bad luck, boys!

Want a healthy life? Have sex

From reducing migraine pain to lowering the risk of prostate cancer, this pleasurable exercise has many far-reaching health benefits.

While most of us would agree that having sex makes us happy, a new study has suggested that the pleasurable exercise could actually offer various far-reaching health benefits -- reduced migraine pain, lower risk of prostate cancer besides providing emotional well-being.Having more sex could not only make us feel good, it could provide far-reaching health benefits.

According to the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, unfortunately we are having less of it -- on average we have sex fewer than five times a month, compared to six-and-half times 20 years ago. Yet studies have linked regular sexual activity to emotional well-being, reduced migraine pain and even a lower risk of prostate cancer, Daily Mail reported.

A Canadian study last month found that half-an-hour of sexual activity could burn more calories than walking on a treadmill -- the researchers claimed sexual activity could be considered significant exercise.

The study measured the sexual activity of 21 couples aged between 18 and 35. They were monitored using an armband to calculate how many calories the wearer burned, and the intensity of the activity.

In a typical session, lasting 25 minutes, the men were observed as burning 100 calories on average, the women burned 69. The intensity of the activity was measured in METs (the Metabolic Equivalent of a Task); for men, the average reading was six METs, for women it was 6.6.

It's roughly the same as playing doubles tennis, or walking uphill, for 20 minutes, 33 minutes of golf on a driving range, 40 minutes of yoga or 19 minutes of light rowing.
According to the Canadian research, it can be classed as a moderate intensity exercise if you do enough of it.

Meanwhile, it is not just the heart and lungs that get a workout. Last week, scientists at the University of Maryland in the US found middle-aged rats made more brain cells after mating.

Chocolate – Your guilt free treat

Chocolate – Your guilt free treat

Chocoholics now have a reason to rejoice. Studies show that chocolate can actually do wonders for your health! So go ahead and indulge.

If you have a sweet tooth and love chocolates, but the calories stop you from indulging yourself, here are a few reasons why you don’t have to feel guilty.

Reasons to have more chocolates

Nutritional punch: Both milk and dark chocolate give your body enough calcium and vitamin E to prevent any deficiency disorder. Consuming around two ounces of dark chocolate a day may actually help you live longer, and stay miles away from heart diseases, and even cancer!

Get smarter: Loaded with flavonoids that increase blood flow to the cerebral portion of the brain, chocolate can actually help you get smarter. It increases the production of blood and brain cells, boosting cognitive function (process in which one becomes aware of ideas). And that’s not just the dark chocolate - it’s also the regular milk chocolate that makes for good grades.

Flash the pearly whites: Theobromine - a compound found in chocolates is now thought to be as efficient as fluoride in hardening the tooth enamel, making you less susceptible to tooth decay and cavities. This, however, doesn’t mean you can trade your toothbrush for a chocolate bar.

Heart happy: You are probably already aware that dark chocolate helps fight away heart problems, specifically stroke. A study showed that weekly consumption of dark chocolate reduced the chances of stroke to a good 37%. Dark chocolate is also wonderfully efficient at reducing LDL (low density lipoproteins) - the bad cholesterol. Also, it manages to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 31%. Packed with vitamin E, dark chocolate keeps away the metabolic disorders, heart disease and diabetes. Now isn’t that impressive!

Soul soother: What made you obsessed with chocolate is the feel-good-feeling that you get right after you eat it. It stimulates the neural activity in the brain that gives that feeling of pleasure and satisfaction, helping ward away depression and stress.

Eye care: Consuming white/dark chocolate has demonstrated an improvement in vision among 300 people in the US. These impressive numbers came from the fact that the flavonols (a class of flavonoids) increase the blood flow to not only the brain, but also the retina.

Beauty SOS: Cocoa butter has made its way into many of your cosmetic products now, and it’s not without a reason. Cocoa rejuvenates the skin and accelerates production of new skin cells, thus effectively fighting skin ageing. Cocoa also has a high concentration of flavonols-a plant compound that improves blood circulation making the skin visibly smooth, and antioxidants that protect the skin from sun damage.

Lastly, chocolate effectively fights inflammation and free radical damage, giving you the glow you’ve always coveted.
