Poses and Exercises in Yoga for Weight Loss

Yoga has originated from India many years ago. The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from Sanskrit which means union. It is the union of the mind and body to achieve a well balanced life. Practicing yoga not only helps in toning your body, improving the physical and mental well being, but also helps in fat loss. Yoga for weight loss is very commonly used by most of the people as the awareness is spreading. Many celebrities are using yoga for weight loss nowadays.

Yoga is an effective way to maintain healthy body without any negative side effects. It helps in reducing the fat and increasing the metabolism of the body. There are various school and styles of yoga which depict different ways of practicing yoga. Some of the styles are: Bikram, Kundalini, Astanga and Iyengar. They all aim towards the same goal but in slightly different ways. There are many poses or asanas in yoga for weight loss. Deep breathing in yoga increases the intake of oxygen in the body. Some of the poses and exercises in yoga for weight loss are as below:

1. Pranayam: Pranayam is a set of breathing exercises that have an effective impact on weight loss. Deep breathing done in the proper way helps in reducing the abdominal fat. There are different breathing techniques which can be practiced like kapalbhati, bhastrika, anulom vilom, bharamari and ujjayi pranayam. Kapalbhati is said to be very effective since it involves forceful exhalation of air. Care should be taken that this should be done on an empty stomach only. This is not only good for obesity but also for indigestion and acidity. In Anulom Vilom, one has to close one nostril with the thumb and breathe deeply from the other. This has to be repeated alternating the nostrils. These deep breathing exercises are very helpful and should be done under guidance.

Japanese Martial Arts

Japanese Martial ArtsThe history of the island nation of Japan paints a clear picture of a proud and powerful people forging a national identity, robust culture, and unique way of life from the crucible of war and uncertain peace. Central to this culture was the concept of martial valor, of being able to fight aggressively as well as defensively, both for the very practical purposes of waging war along with strong notions of duty, honor, and personal development. It was from this militaristic and spiritual foundation that the Japanese martial arts styles, of which there are legion and which will be discussed throughout this article, developed.

History

Broadly speaking, the history of Japanese martial arts can be broken down into two categories: Koryu Bujutsu (bujutsu meaning the practical application of martial tactics and techniques in actual combat) and Gendai Budo (budo meaning a way of life encompassing physical, spiritual, and moral dimensions with a focus of self-improvement, fulfillment, or personal growth).

Koryu Bujutsu encompasses the more ancient, traditional Japanese fighting styles, while Gendai Budo is more modern. The division between them occurred after the Meiji Restoration (1868), when the Emperor was restored to practical political power and Japan began the process of modernization in haste. Prior to the Restoration, the Koryu styles focused extensively, if not exclusively, on practical warfare. The Samurai, or warrior caste were expected to be masters of all forms of combat, armed and otherwise. Their martial arts evolved as weapons and technology did, but the focus always remained the same: victory in actual combat, for their own honor and for the cause of their ruler.

However, with the Meiji Restoration and the modernization of Japan, including the large-scale introduction of firearms, the traditional Japanese fighting styles of the samurai became outdated and no longer useful for their practical purpose of military combat. In their wake, the Japanese martial arts styles evolved into what came to be known as Gendai Budo, which focused far less on broad-scale military application and far more on self-improvement and personal growth. They became not just a tool for military victory, but a vital component of a fulfilling, meaningful, and spiritually connected way of life.

Interestingly, this distinction can be noted in the differing terminology: the traditional techniques were referred to as bujutsu, which specifically relates to waging war, while the modern styles are collectively known as budo, which are far more involved with personal betterment.

Styles

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts (Koryu Bujutsu)

Sumo: The oldest of Japanese martial arts styles is sumo, named after the emperor who popularized it (Shumo Tenno) in 728 AD. However, the origins of the fighting style go back long before him, to 23 AD, when the first sumo battle was fought, watched over by the emperor and continuing until one of the fighters was too wounded to continue. After Emperor Shumo reintroduced the sport, it became a staple of the annual harvest festival, spreading throughout Japan and even incorporated into military training. From the 17th century onward, it became a professional sport in every regard, open to all classes, samurai and peasants alike. The rules of the sport are simple: The first man to touch the ground with a part of the body other than the bottom of the feet, or touch the ground outside the ring with any part of the body, loses. It is still an incredibly popular sport in Japan to this day, followed religiously be legions of fervent fans.

Jujutsu: This Japanese martial arts style literally translates into “soft skills”, and uses indirect force such as joint locks and throws to defeat an opponent, rather than direct force like punches and kicks, to use the attackers force against them and counterattack where they are weakest. It was initially developed to fight against the samurai, who often terrorized townspeople, as more direct forms of combat proved ineffective against well-armored foes. Small weapons such as daggers, weighed chains, and helmet smashers (tanto, ryufundo kusari, and jutte, respectively) were used as well in jujutsu. Many elements of jujutsu have been incorporated into a wide variety of more modern Japanese martial arts, including judo, aikido, and non-Japanese martial arts styles like karate.

Ninjutsu: Ninjutsu, or the art of the Ninja, has in the modern period grown to become one of the best known styles of Japanese martial arts. However, when it was developed, Ninjas were used as assassins during the turbulent Warring States Period. Although many a martial arts movie has portrayed ninjas as expert combatants, their true purpose was to avoid combat, or even detection altogether. A skilled ninja would kill his mark and be gone before anyone even suspected he was there. Ninjas were trained in the arts of disguise, escape, concealment, archery, medicine, explosives, and poisons, a skillset uniquely suited to their particular task.

Although there are a number of other Koryu Bujutsu Japanese martial arts styles, they mostly involve weapons, and will be discussed in the Japanese Martial Arts Weapons section.

Modern Japanese Martial Arts (Gendai Budo)

Judo: Literally translated into “the gentle way” or “the way of softness”, Judo is an extremely popular Japanese martial art style developed in the late 19th century based on grappling, and used for sport as well as personal and spiritual development. While incorporating many jujutsu elements, it mainly involves freestyle practice and is used for competition, while removing many of the more harmful jujutsu aspects. In 1964, Judo became an Olympic sport and is currently practiced the world over.

Aikido: Aikido is one of the most complex and nuanced of the Japanese martial arts styles, and that is reflected in its name, which translates into “the way to harmony with ki”, “ki” meaning life force. Aikido was developed by Morihei Ueshiba in the early-mid 20th century, and focuses primarily on striking, throwing, and joint-locking techniques. Aikido is well known for its fluidity of motion as a signature element of its style. Its principle involves the use of the attacker’s own force against him, with minimal exertion on the part of the wielder. Aikido was influenced significantly by Kenjutsu, the traditional Japanese martial art of sword combat, and in many respects practitioner is acts and moves as an empty-handed swordsman. Aikido also places a strong emphasis on spiritual development, reflecting the importance of spirituality to its founder, and the resultant influence on the martial arts style.

Japanese Karate: Karate, the “way of the empty hand”, was actually not originally a Japanese martial art, having been developed in Okinawa and later influenced by the Chinese. However, early in the 20th century Karate found acceptance in Japan, going so far as to be incorporated into the Japanese public school system. Japanese Karate involves linear punching and kicking, executed from a fixed stance. In this sense, it is very different from the other Japanese martial arts such as Aikido and Judo, which are more fluid in their motions.

Kempo: Kempo is a system of self-defense and self-improvement developed after WWII, based on a modified version of Shaolin Kung-Fu. It involves a combination of strikes, kicks and blocks, as well as pins, joint locks and dodges, making it a middle way between the “hard” styles like Japanese Karate and the more “soft” styles like Judo and Aikido. It was originally introduced into Japan after the war in order to rebuild Japanese morale and spirits, first adopted by large scale corporations for their employees before spreading into the culture of Japan and the larger martial arts world. Now, Kempo is practiced by over 1.5 million people in over 33 countries.

Japanese Martial Arts Weapons

Weapons played a key role in the Japanese Martial Arts, especially during the Koryu Bujutsu phase when they were practically used in combat. Here we will go through a number of Japanese martial arts weapons, as well as the martial arts styles associated with each.

Sword (Katana): Undisputed amongst the hierarchy of Japanese martial arts weapons is the Katana, or the traditional curved sword. The first Katana, with its famous strengthening folding process was forged by legendary swordsmith Amakuni Yasutsuna in 700 AD, with subsequent developments occurring between 987 and 1597 AD. During times of peace, artistry was emphasized, and during times of war, like the 12th century civil war and the 13th century Mongolian invasion, durability, effectiveness, and mass production were more important. The evolution of Swordsmanship was cyclical, with peaceful times being used to invent new techniques, and war times being used to test them. What worked survived, what didn’t, didn’t. During the more than 200 year peaceful period of the Tokugawa Dynasty, the art of swordsmanship changed from one focused on combat and killing to one of personal development and spiritual perfection.

Japanese Martial Arts Weapons Techniques (Katana):

Kenjutsu: the “art of the sword”, this technique is the oldest and used to refer to partnered, one-on-one sword training.

Battojutsu: This is the Art of Drawing a Sword, and involves quickly stepping up to your opponent, drawing your blade, cutting them down in one or two strokes, and re-sheathing the blade. The fact that it has a category onto itself speaks volumes for the philosophy behind Japanese martial arts weapons styles. Battojutso is connected with Iaijutso, or the art of mental presence and immediate reaction, which needs to be perfected if battojutu is to be effective.

Kendo: Kendo, which translates into the “way of the sword”, is a modern, gendai budo Japanese martial arts style. As the sword is no longer a combat weapon, Kendo has reinvented Japanese swordsmanship into a competitive sport. Kendo really took off once the bamboo sword and lightweight wooden armor were introduced, as they allowed for full-speed strikes without the risk of injury. Now, almost all of competitive Kendo is governed by the All Japan Kendo Federation, established in 1951.

Other Japanese Martial Arts Weapons and Martial Arts Styles

Naginata & Naginatajutsu: The naginata was a wooden pole with a curved, single-edged blade at the end. It was used by the samurai, as well as by regular footsoldiers. Naginatajutsua was the art of the naginata, used extensively in traditional Japanese combat. Interestingly, during the Edo period, the Naginata was traditionally a weapon of high-born women, and many practitioners and teachers to this day are women. In the modern world, naginata-do is the ritualistic and competitive form of naginatajutso, practiced by many in Japan and beyond.

Spear & Sojutso: this is the art of fighting with a spear. Although it used to be practiced extensively, and was a primary skill of average soldiers during times of war, it has since declined significantly in popularity, for obvious reasons.

Bow & Kyudo: Kyudo is the “way of the bow”, with the Koryu name being Kyujutsu, or the art of the bow. In traditional Japanese martial arts, the bow and its art was a staple of Samurai discipline, as it was a potent military weapon. When used on horseback, it was even more devastating. However, as Japan adopted firearms, the bow was displaced as a practical instrument of war. Thus, in modern times, Kyudo is practiced for sport and contemplation rather than for warfare.

Other Japanese martial arts weapons exist, such as the tanto (dagger), ryufundo kusari (weighed chain), and jutte (helmet smasher), but the Katana, naginata, spearm and bow were the mainstays of the warrior class.

Japanese Martial Arts List

If the above was a bit too long to read, here is a concise list of the major differing Japanese martial arts styles:

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Styles

Sumo: earliest style, involves pushing a single opponent over or knocking them from the ring.

Jujutsu: An early style used against samurai and armored opponents, it involves using throws and joint locks to use the enemies own force against them.

Kenjutsu: The art of the sword, involves fighting a single opponent one-on-one with a Katana.

Ninjutsu: The art of the ninja, involves using stealth and indirect or long-range methods of assassination.

Modern Japanese Martial Arts Styles

Judo: “The Gentle Way”, based on grappling, used for sport as well as spiritual and personal development. Judo was accepted as an Olympic sport in 1964.

Aikido: “The Way of Harmony with Ki”, Aikido involves fluid motion and turning the attacker’s own force against him. It is also used for spiritual and personal development.

Japanese Karate: An “imported” martial art to Japan, Japanese Karate is more linear than the other arts, involving direct punches and kicks from a fixed position.

Kempo: Based on Shaolin Kung-Fu, Kempo incorporates direct strikes, kicks, and blocks, as well as indirect pins, joint locks, and dodges. Having been introduced after WWII, is incredibly popular in Japan and throughout the world.

Kendo: The “way of the sword”, Kendo uses bamboo swords and lightweight wooden armor to allow full-speed strikes and has reinvented Japanese sword fighting into a competitive sport rather than an art of war.

Eating Fatty Fast Foods Will Make You Fat

Eating Fatty Fast Foods Will Make You FatIf losing weight is your aim, then eating fatty fast foods will have the opposite effect. The old saying “you are what you eat” has a bit of truth in it. Eating fatty fast foods will make you fat. In most cases, eating fatty foods is very unhealthy.

Beef Burgers are loaded with calories and having double cheese along with bacon doesn’t help. The fats and oils contained in beef burgers doesn’t break down easily inside the body. Our body likes to store the energy in food as fat. It stores energy as fat so that it the energy can be used at a later stage.

This is similar to how camels work. Camels hold large energy reserves in their humps. The energy in their humps are used when they are travelling great distances. Camels travel long distances without food and water. Humans have fat reserves too. We store energy as fat and use it when needed.

All people are different and we all have different energy needs. People burn at different rates. The rate at which we burn energy in our bodies is known as our metabolism rate. Having a faster metabolism rate is great for many reasons. It means that we can burn energy faster and hence lose weight faster.

Studies have shown that what we eat affects our metabolism rate. Foods such as lean meats have been shown to increase the rate of a person’s metabolism. There are other foods that have the same effect.

Losing weight is all about watching what we eat. Fatty fast foods contain bad fats that the body can’t break down easily. The bad fats get stored away in our body and we will find it hard to lose weight.

Eating bananas all day won’t make us look like a banana. Fruits are very healthy and we should eat more of them throughout the day. The aim is to eat a balanced diet. A balanced diet means that we should eat a variety of food.

A mixed variety of meats and vegetables should eaten every day. Fruits should be eaten as well. The amount of fruits and vegetables that we eat should exceed the amount of meats that we eat in a day. There are some people who don’t eat any meats at all and they are called vegetarians.

Vegetarians must make up for the nutrients found in meat by eating all different kinds of fruits and vegetables.

How Ronda Rousey Improved Women’s Mixed Martial Arts

How Ronda Rousey Improved Women's Mixed Martial ArtsOver the past ten years, Women’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has slowly been gaining traction in the traditionally male dominated Mixed Martial Arts community. Initially, there were limited platforms for women to compete in MMA, which helped to perpetuate little popularity for women in the sport. In the past, UFC President, Dana White has been extremely vocal in the past about his distaste for women in the sport saying that women would never fight in the UFC.

Much of the rejection for women in the sport of MMA, comes from the public’s inability to understand the logic behind two women wanting to participate in such a physical contact sport that often times leaves them maimed and bloody. This rejection only perpetuates the gender stereotypes of our culture and what is considered to be an acceptable female sport.

In 2012, breakout Women’s Mixed Martial Artist, ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey became the first women to ever be signed to the UFC, despite President Dana White’s previous statements against women in the organization. Breaking history and rising to super stardom in the MMA community, Ronda Rousey set the standard for women in the sport by becoming the women’s UFC bantamweight champion. However, two short years after becoming the UFC’s ‘golden child’, Ronda Rousey outraged millions of fans after refusing to shake the hand of contender Meisha Tate following her win at the UFC 168 championship.

While many might think this act of disrespect to Meisha Tate would potentially ruin the popularity and career of Ronda Rousey, but if it did anything it bolstered the popularity and “it” factor of Ronda Rousey making her even more renowned. Following the events that occurred at UFC 168, Ronda Rousey went on to not only star in several movies, but she has been on many late night television shows, the subject of documentaries, and covered magazines. In this case the old saying of “no press is bad press” has proven to be true in Rousey’s case.

The success and behaviors of Ronda Rousey has since opened several doors for many other female mixed martial artists, and following the popularity of the UFC’s women’s bantam weight division, the UFC has also introduced a women’s UFC straw weight division. This proved that women can be not only as dangerous and entertaining as male mixed marital artists, but could sell just as many tickets to fights since many MMA fans have flocked to arenas and fight cards that showcase female fighters.

Essential Oils Guide – Healing With Aromatherapy

essential oils and medical flowers herbsFrom ancient times essential oils and aromatherapy have been used for so many purposes. Just imagine the ancient Egyptians and using them in their sacred rituals, or for healing, or for bringing harmony into people’s lives. Just imagine the ancient Greece where in the “asklepion” one would go to heal and always be helped with the help of sacred scents, or (still in ancient Greece) the “onirikon” where one would go to be healed with the help of information brought forth from dream state and where would always be helped by oils and scents and fragrances to get in tune with the higher planes of consciousness.

All this is real, documented historical fact. Ancients knew about it. Then why don’t we know so much about it? Or rather why is it we don’t find such topics important?

On the one hand nowadays we’re more attached to material values, have more stress in our lives, and are more driven by ambitions and material desires. The life of the ancients was simpler, more in touch with their inner selves and with their consciousness. Those were times of simplicity, of living in harmony with Mother Nature and the Universe, which was the house of the Gods. Everything was integrated, everything was a whole.

But we can return to that inner natural state of Being.

In the present time, we can make use of aromatherapy and with the help of an essential oils guide be able to learn the various uses of the wonderful presents nature has prepared for us. Whether lavender, or lemon, or cinnamon, or rose and rosemary, whether bergamot, geraniums, rosemary, eucalyptus, oregano, peppermint or neroli, all can help in different aspects of our inner, physical or relational life. Why not make use of essential oils when they can relief pains, free old forgotten emotions bring harmony into one’s life and relational life, bring harmony and balance between mind, body and spirit?

This is we we’ve decided to create a small essential oils guide, in order to help you all find guidance in the world of aromatherapy.

You should first know that essential oils are concentrated oils extracted through various processes from plants, flowers, bark and other parts. The best and purest of them of the them are also called 100% pure essential oils. The extraction process involves distillation of the plant through water or steam. It is said that essential oils are to be found at molecular levels inside the structure of the plant. So by various technical means they are extracted and turned into the liquid form we know and can easily use in our daily lives, and adapt to our needs.

Know also that there are two options to obtaining the necessary oils: you could buy essential oils or make them yourself. Making essential oils requires deeper knowledge and is recommended only to the truly passionate, as for more people the option of buying them is best.

Each one of us could have in our homes an essential oils guide, just as we have so many pharmaceutical medicines, which although useful lack in an important aspect: they lack the natural strength of life that can only be found in natural products

Essential oils are however very potent, being considered the super-concentrated essence of a plant. This is why dilution is necessary in order to make use of them. Whether in our household, or to heal emotional imbalances, or simply to relieve the stress that sometimes builds up in our lives bringing much unhappiness both to us and our loved ones.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.

Conventional Medical Approach To Treating Ovarian Cysts

Cause Of Ovarian Cysts

Disadvantages and Side Effects of The Conventional Medical Approach To Treating Ovarian Cysts

The conventional medical approach to treating ovarian cysts is the most common with many treatment options yet the results are almost always short term and side effects can be nasty. Therefore, more women are turning towards alternative forms of treatment for their ovarian cysts condition.

Understanding the conventional medical approach:

The conventional medical approach to treating ovarian cysts is very simple and straightforward and consists of three stages:

Understanding the symptoms: There are certain textbook symptoms of ovarian cysts which include irregular menstruation, pelvic pain, infertility, and more. The patients are asked to keep a tab on these symptoms so that the condition can be diagnosed quickly to prevent potential complications. However, sometimes, ovarian cysts do not give rise to any symptoms. Hence, they can be discovered accidentally during a routine gynecological examination.

Diagnosing ovarian cysts: Diagnosing ovarian cysts canbe done in several ways. Besides understanding the symptoms of the condition, the practitioner will also make use of an Endovaginal ultrasound, CT scanning, blood tests, Laproscopy and many other forms of tests to confirm his or her prognosis. Similar to the treatment of ovarian cysts, the diagnostic stage of the treatment can be equally traumatic.

Treatment: The treatment for ovarian cysts normally depends upon the type of cyst and its nature. If the cyst is benign, little to no treatment is required. However, in the more serious cases, conventional medicine will recommended the following forms of treatment:
Birth control pills: Birth control pills stop ovulation. They therefore repress ovarian cysts. They can also reduce the size of the follicles and help in reducing the size of the existing cysts.

Surgery: If the cysts are cancerous or if there are any other complications, then surgery is recommended. The decidion regarding surgery will depend upon the type of cyst and the potential complications. Sometimes, only the cyst is removed. However, it is not very uncommon to remove one or both ovaries to get rid of a cyst.

Besides the above, pain killers are also given to provide relief from the pain caused by the cysts.

The only way to effectively treat and prevent ovarian cysts is by using a multidimensional holistic approach to healing.

Unlike the conventional approach which deals with the inflicted organ or with the symptoms of the disease (and the treatment in often aggressive with a myriad of side effects), the holistic approach treats every disease as part of a whole by firstly restoring natural balance to the body while naturally tackling each causative factor which lead to the condition. In this way, the holistic approach to treating ovarian cysts offers a long term, safe and gentle solution without the side effects of drugs or the risk of surgery while ensuring the prevention of future ovarian cyst recurrence.

The Real Cause Of Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian CystsAn Ovarian cyst is a collection of fluids surrounded by a slender wall within the ovary. Ovarian cysts raise concern among many women, especially in childbearing age.  While the majority of ovarian cysts are simply functional in nature, some ovarian cysts can turn out to be cancerous.  The first step of correctly diagnosing and treating ovarian cysts is to identify the cause of the disease. However, there is no single cause of ovarian cysts. Ovarian cysts can be triggered by a variety of primary factors and secondary factors. It is imperative to understand these different factors in order to seek appropriate treatment.

Primary factors of ovarian cysts:

There are several primary factors and a combination of these factors which lead to ovarian cysts formation.

  1. Genetic predisposition: Genetic predisposition is often considered to be the primary cause of ovarian cysts as research has shown that the genetic pattern of women who suffer from this chronic condition is far different compared to women who have never suffered from ovarian cysts or PCOS. PCOS women are often predisposed to abnormal metabolism and the dysfunctions of cell activity. However, this should not be a death warrant as many times the genetic characteristics can be modified with the help of environmental factors and proper lifestyle related changes.
  2. Poor dietary choices: Different types of foods including refined carbohydrates, acidic foods and foods which contain high levels of toxins and hormone like substances can trigger hormonal imbalance and can weaken your immune system making you more susceptible to ovarian cysts. Similarly a diet rich in sugar and low on fresh vegetables can make the task of flushing out toxins difficult thereby aggravating your ovarian cyst condition.
  3. Weak immune system: Poor dietary choices, stress and sleep deprivation can lead to a weakened immune system. A weakened immune system invites cannot defend the body against ovarian cyst formation.
  4. Insulin resistance: High level of insulin can stimulate ovarian androgen production, which leads to the production of male hormones. This reduces the serum sex-hormone binding globulin or SHGB. The SHBG can in turn aggravate your ovarian cyst condition to quite an extent.
  5. Failed ovulation process: When the ovaries fail to release an egg on a monthly basis due to certain metabolic disorders and because progesterone isn’t produced it can trigger the formation of ovarian cysts as the immature follicles develop into cysts.

Besides the above primary factors, toxins in the liver and blood and even environmental toxins can increase the chances of ovarian cysts formation.

The only way to effectively treat and prevent ovarian cysts is by using a multidimensional holistic approach to healing.

Unlike the conventional approach which deals with the inflicted organ or with the symptoms of the disease (and the treatment in often aggressive with a myriad of side effects), the holistic approach treats every disease as part of a whole by firstly restoring natural balance to the body while naturally tackling each causative factor which lead to the condition. In this way, the holistic approach to treating ovarian cysts offers a long term, safe and gentle solution without the side effects of drugs or the risk of surgery while ensuring the prevention of future ovarian cyst recurrence.

How to Improve Your Memory


Boost MemoryThose first signs of slipping memory can be a little alarming – especially if you know the dreariness of that route. You may first see it in your 40s, or even younger, with memory loss symptoms like slower facial recall or where you left your keys.

What groceries were you supposed to buy? Wait – you forgot your grocery list at home.

While it’s normal to forget things on occasion, it’s a pattern to watch. The makers of Brain Pill natural memory supplement believe it’s important to keep your brain active. Challenge your memory – just like a muscle, give your brain a good workout daily with these memory-boosting tips courtesy of Brain Pill:

Use Your Memory Daily – Your brain needs a workout just like the rest of you. It’s a case of ‘use it or lose it’, so use your brain every day. Try crosswords, for example, or read a section of the newspaper you’d normally skip. You might also take a different route to work, for example, or learn another language or how to play a musical instrument.

See Your Friends – You’re not an island, dude. Depression and stress can both lead to memory loss, which is why you’ll want to socialize often – especially if you live alone. Be with others and take them up on their invitations. Life gets better when you do.

Organize Your Life! – You lose points with a cluttered home because you’re more likely to forget stuff. So make lists and notes of appointments and things to do in a special notebook or on your calendar. Heck, download an app on your iPod and write down what needs to get done. Speak it out loud too, to reinforce it in your memory, and check-off your tasks when completed.

While we’re on the subject, try to stay focused on the task at hand and limit distractions. You’re more likely to recall information if you concentrate specifically on that rather than multi-tasking. Put another way, focus on what you want to remember later and you’re in better shape to remember it quickly.

Sleep Well – Shut-eye helps your memory. Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep each night. So make time for adequate rest – go to bed earlier if you have to and work on your sleep hygiene. Your memory will thank you when you try to remember stuff the next day.

Eat Healthy – Do you see a pattern here? Your memory likes healthy living. That extends to your diet, with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Opt for low-fat protein, like fish and skinless poultry. Drink plenty of water too, and watch the alcohol intake.

Exercise Daily – This boosts blood flow throughout your body. That includes your noggin. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (like walking) each week, says the Department of Health and Human Services, or 75 minutes of something with greater intensity, like jogging, though even a few 10 minute brisk walks per day will suffice in a pinch.

Stay in Touch With Your Doctor – Chronic conditions can affect your memory, to say nothing about the rest of your health. So follow your doctor’s recommendations, be it for depression, your kidneys or anything else in your medical history. Review your medications often with your doctor as well – some medications can reduce your memory.

Try Brain Pill
We can’t end an article on how to improve your memory without mention of Brain Pill natural memory supplement. That’s because it’s simply rocket fuel for your brain; a cognitive booster with clinically proven nootropics like cognizine, vinpocetine and ginkgo biloba, which increase alertness and blood flow in your brain.

Studies also suggest the ingredients in Brain Pill enhance and may even protect memory. They don’t call it ‘Your Unfair Advantage’ without good reason – better memory is linked to higher cognitive function. Your brain is more efficient with a sharp memory, which gives you better intelligence, and the financial and social rewards that go with them.

Try Brain Pill to improve your memory. Combine it with the memory-boosting tips we’ve discussed in this article, and you really do have an unfair advantage. Your memory will like it too, and you may finally have a solution to that pain-in-the-butt issue of where you left your keys!
