Today I am sharing and requesting you all to support this initiative started by Everteen. Everteen is distributing 1 Million Free Sanitary Pads to the lockdown affected women. And I am helping Everteen in this initiative of #SheNeedsPad.
While fighting with Covid-19, we shouldn’t forget about the menstrual hygiene of those who don’t even have a home during a lockdown.
Lockdown affected women means those who are not able to afford sanitary pads cause of no income during the lockdown and to those who are not able to reach a nearby store to get the sanitary pads.
If you guys are capable of donating at least one pack of the sanitary pad, then check out their website www.sheneedspad.com to donate free pads. If you are not capable of doing that, please share this with your friends and family or on social media. Spread this message so that needy women can get benefits from this initiative.
If you know someone who needs sanitary pads nearby, you can directly add that person’s address on their website.
I hope you guys will help our Indian Women to be healthy and hygienic.
Hello Folks! I hope you all are doing well during the lockdown time. I was thinking of posting something related to fitness here for a long. And finally getting content related to fitness for you guys.
Being at home 24*7 during the covid-19 lockdown, people tend to become very lazy and foodie. I was also one of them initially… Haha.
But that laziness is not going to help you anytime. It may make you obese and will invite some lifestyle diseases. Your body and mind need to be active even if you be at home. Your physical, mental and emotional health is challenging to maintain when you stuck up at the same place between the same people surrounding you.
While enjoying a good time with family members and work from home stress, you should not forget about your health and fitness. The Coronavirus fear may influence you to consume some herbal/ayurvedic medicines and drinks to increase immunity power, but along with that, add someexercisetoyourroutinetoboostyourimmunitymore.
Fitness lovers do miss their gym workouts. Hence it is high time to create a home gym. Home gym workout are as exciting as the gym workout. Even if you are not a fitness lover, once you start exercising at least 20 minutes a day will change your way of looking towards health and fitness. At-home workouts can be done without any gym equipment. You can use whatever available at home as weights according to the exercises which you are performing.
People usually follow online workouts given by some fitness influencers or fitness experts. I would not suggest to follow them if you are a beginner. While exercising, your posture should be perfect for gaining maximum use of that exercise; Otherwise, it will end up giving you injury and pain. For beginners, i would suggest taking online training from a fitness expert or physical therapist is the best decision for doing the exercise correctly.

As stated by the World Health Organization (WHO),322 million individuals worldwide were affected by Depression in 2015 — 4.4 percentage of the world’s inhabitants. In the search for underlying causes of this widespread disorder, researchers say that it might arise from predisposition along with a person’s environmental stress variables.
Now’s work life and social existence are somewhat more stressful than ever previously. Without contest, you’re nobody in any company or job. You’ve got to be in a rush or in contest with your opponents to do your aims of your life. At first, the purpose could be receiving enough money from an occupation or company to stay a wholesome, fulfilling life. In the future, you can not continue the very same efforts on your own career or company to keep the exact identical lifetime or enhanced life.
Anxiety is everywhere. Beginning from the items to each individual being, Child to mature to geriatrics. These generations of kids are largely facing anxiety during college life. Working under the stress of any individual or some other situation increases pressure. Stress about whether they will not have the ability to reach their job properly, they have fired or may confront societal abuse.
Thus prospective insecurities. Those all in one makes the person all-time concerned and can not be joyful. His/her family members also suffer with this behavior, and in the long run, Depression enters their lives.
Chronic exposure to stress can lead to long-lasting changes in the brain’s biology. These long-term modifications may change the operational states of different neurotransmitters and intraneuronal signalling systems, amendments that can even include the loss of neuron and an excessive decrease in synaptic contacts. Consequently, a man is at a higher risk of undergoing following episodes of Depression, even without the external stressor.
Depression is also linked with the modifications in how the individual processes information, particularly emotional information. People with Depression have a negative view of the world.
In a new study in Nature Neuroscience, Jaideep Bains, PhD, and his team at the Cumming School of Medicine’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), in the University of Calgary have discovered that anxiety transmitted from other people can change the brain in exactly the same manner as a real strain does. The analysis, in mice also shows that the effects of stress on the brain have been reversed in female mice after a social interaction. This wasn’t true for male mice.
Remedy through anti depressants does not do the job independently, Anti depressants are more successful when they are connected to how much individual can re-engage with their surroundings and their degree of social aid. Other than that Yoga & Meditation helps more to deal with day to day stress. And helps to recover mind from depressed state. Exercise also help to reduce stress. Hence any type of exercises for at least 30 minutes 5 days a week is recommended for everybody.

What’s trending now a day for weight loss? It is Green Coffee.
After researches for years, People are consuming green coffee and its now available in Indian Supermarkets.
You must be knowing about just Coffee and black Coffee. But What is Green Coffee?
Green Coffee is made up of Unroastedgreen beans of Coffee. Green Coffee beans are more beneficial for consumption is due to the substance called ‘chlorogenic acid’ that is present in unroasted coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid breaks down when coffee beans are roasted (usually at a temperature of 464-482 degrees Fahrenheit). Roasting gives coffee beans their distinctive colour, aroma and flavour. Green coffee beans, in contrast, have little aroma and a slightly bitter taste.
Researchers also found that green coffee extract lowered post-meal glucose by inhibiting the absorption of sugar across the intestine and suppresses fat accumulation.

Blue light is a light which you receive from sunlight in the maximum amount. Other than that you receive blue light from Florescent lights, Compact fluorescent light bulbs, LED lights, flat LED televisions, computer monitors, smartphones and tablet screens.
Why to Protect your Eyes from Blue Lights?
Blue light is the most damaging because it is the highest energy light that can reach the retina, and it can react with the chemicals in the retina to produce damaging free radicals, which are molecules that can adversely interact with other molecules inside of our cells. This can leads to AMD.

How to Protect your Eyes from Blue Light?
This is very important for those who deal with Computer screens, Tablets and Mobile-phone screens. Mobile phone usage has increased in all general population. And in some profession computer screen facing more than 5-6 hours is necessary. Hence there should be some protection for your eyes. There are a few ways to reduce blue light exposure.
Take frequent breaks while using digital devices.

Blue Light Protection Glass– User’s Review : I have asked some people, how much effective the blue light protection glasses are, who uses Blue Light Protection Glasses everyday.
Dr. Jaymin Patel said “On my normal glasses, I used to get a slight irritation on my eyes. But with blue light protection glasses, I feel no irritation at all. The eyes don’t get strained with these glasses. The difference is so significant that you can feel it.I recommend going for the Blue-Cut lenses to people who work in front of laptop or mobile screens for long hours and also for those who do lots of gaming on TV”.
Hardik Shah Said ” I had a problem: For my job, I needed to spend a minimum of eight hours a day staring at a computer screen. Plus, unfortunately, in my downtime after work, I would often find myself staring at another, smaller screen: the rectangle of my phone, which would constantly beam more blue light into my face.. I usually only wear prescription (non-light-blocking) glasses when I’m driving. I found that when I had to wear my blue light glasses every time I was looking at a screen, it made me more aware of just how often I was looking at a screen”.
Shivani Gowda said ” Being a blogger, fashion designer and student, we all are into gadget’s like Mobile phones, tablet, laptop etc. Well its been a while, I started using blue light protection glass. So far I feel comfortable wearing glasses, while I m working on my laptop sometimes I use it when I m watching TV. It is helping me to protect my retina and other eye problems. I don’t know much about the other brand but yeah I am using silver care glasses from a long-time”.
I hope you will choose a good Blue Protector Glasses for you and your children, and avoid using digital devices for longer periods and at night.
