Social Jetlag: The Clock That Could Make You Fat – A Video

The modern western phenomenon of working all week and partying all weekend maybe doing you more harm than you thought. Worst of all it could be making you fat! European researchers are calling this condition “social jetlag”.

The term “social jetlag” refers to the inconsistency between your natural body clock and your “social clock”, which is both the schedule you keep to make it to work and your sleep-in habit over the weekend, be it for hibernation purposes or due to a “wild” night out the previous evening.

Your body is suffering from “Jetlag” because of what you’re doing to your body, your mothership. You’re making it shuffle back and forth between different time zones at either end of the week and you slowly sink into a state of sleep deprivation. (more…)

The little seed that was once an important food source for Native Americans in the West and Central America making a big comeback! The humble little Chia seed is back in favour.

Jumpstart Your Morning

A busy job, lifestyle and home life make our lives so hard to really relax. If only we could enjoy the lazy Sunday morning wake-ups everyday! To be liberated from alarm clocks, ironing boards and, well – rushing to do everything before we go to work – is what we all dream about.

But here at MyFaceMyLife we believe every morning deserves to be enjoyed! We all deserve a great start to the day which will certainly pave the way for the rest of the day in positivity.

But don’t fret about having a sluggish yesterday – instead, always start afresh, or as Sidney Poitier famously said, “to simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed.

Are you keen on some morning jumpstart tips? Here are some ideas we have found for you that will help your day start with that extra boost of energy.

1.  Wake Up Earlier and Sit In Silence

This may not pair well with the urgency of “jumpstart” and you might be thinking – how’s that better than an extra fifteen minutes of sleep? Well, see it as a way to ease your mind and body out of grogginess. Men’s Health suggests taking advantage of the early morning quiet to clear your head before the noise of your day begins. Some people say that experiencing silence as the dawn slowly breaks into sunrise is one of the best parts of getting up. (more…)

Coffee Drinkers are Living Longer

In recent years the good old cup of coffee has seen a resurgence of popularity. This is not news to most westerners because coffee shops and cafés have been springing up all over the country, towns and suburbs for some years now. But the real news in this story isn’t the fact that we have all fallen in love with the caffeine, it’s that fact that a recent study has found that older folks who drink coffee (even decaf) have a lower risk of death than those who don’t!

Aside from water, coffee is perhaps the next most consumed beverage in the world with 2.25 billion cups gulped down everyday. But due to its caffeine content, the power-perker is mistaken for a bad friend, despite coffee being a rich source of antioxidants and bioactive compounds. Coffee has also been linked to lowering depression and altering estrogen levels among women too. (more…)

Listen to the Quiet Sounds

If you’ve been exposed to any loud sounds for several minutes, give your ears a relaxing break. Harmful vibrations from loud noises can cause free radicals in the blood stream to damage the hair cells inside the ears. Once damaged, these hair cells won’t grow back!  So look for the quiet time to be surrounded by less noise for a few hours (or days preferably) after that initial exposure to loud noise, gives the inflammation caused by the free radicals a chance to abate. As we all know, it’s a noisy world out there. (more…)

To Age Successfully Is To Let Go Of Regrets

Holding onto past regrets is something many of us make a life habit of, rendering our lives to misery and sorrow. But living a life of “no regrets” can be very beneficial – for both young and old.

Whether it’s regretting something you have done or haven’t done, holding on to this regret can affect the way you react and handle situations in your life. According to Healthland, new research has revealed that while it’s normal to dwell on feelings of regret in our youth, but allowing them to factor in future decision making, as we grow older, doesn’t help us with second chances in life. They reported that “the likelihood of second chances diminishes, and feeling regretful doesn’t do as much good”. (more…)
