Benefits Of Yoga Over Gyming!

Any form of regular exercise is a must for a healthy lifestyle. While some people prefer to work out in a gym, others like the calmness of their own house where they can practice yoga or a walk in the park. Each style of exercise has its own pros and cons.

Let's take a look at working out in the gym vs yoga and regular walks:

  • It exercises the mind and body: Yoga is a lifestyle and not merely an exercise routine. Thus, it not only builds and tones muscles but also strengthens your lung capacity, digestive system, etc. It is also said to increase the ability of the mind to focus and attentiveness. You could walk on a treadmill in the gym but taking a walk outdoors does more than only exercising your body. Taking a walk in nature is known to be an effective stress buster and helps you calm your senses. Walking can also help improve your moods and is a form of treatment for depression as well.
     
  • It does not need any special equipment: With yoga, there is no need for weights or special shoes. All you need is a flat, firm surface which could be the carpet in your bedroom or your lawn outdoors. The only equipment you need for a walk is a pair of sturdy, comfortaagain is an exercise that allows you to work at your own pace and does not make you compete with others. As long as you see where you are going and avoible walking shoes. This makes yoga and walking budget friendly as well when compared to gym membership costs.
     
  • It can be done anywhere: Since yoga does not need any special equipment, it can be practised anywhere and at any time. Taking a break from sitting at your desk - try a little pranayam. Keep a pair of walking shoes handy and at lunch break, take a quick walk around the block - there's nothing to stop you.
     
  • There are less chances of injuring yourself: Once again, since yoga does not need specialized weights or equipment, there are less chances of injuring yourself. Yoga also does not focus on speed allowing you to move comfortably in a way that your body always feels good. Walking also is an exercise that allows you to work at your own pace and does not make you compete with others. As long as you see where you are going and avoid walking on tarred surfaces, the chances of injuring yourself while walking are very low.
     
  • Weight loss is more likely to stay off: A reason most gym enthusiasts prefer a strenuous workout to yoga and walking is faster weight loss. These techniques do help lose weight but the process is slow. However, since this weight has been lost gradually, it is more likely to stay off.

Video Games and Neurological Problems Associated with Them

Video Games and Neurological Problems Associated with Them

Your mother has often yelled at you for playing video games for long hours but obviously you haven’t paid heed to it. Such is the obsession with video games that they don’t let you rest unless you have championed all the levels in the virtual interface. Here is the source of all problems. Studies have revealed that video games have a direct relation to neurological disorders. As a result, many health experts across the world consider video game as a kind of health abuse.

People who play action-oriented video games are at higher risks. The more you indulge in these kinds of games, the more they are going to affect the hippocampus section of your brain. It is that part of the brain which is considered to be the centre of your nervous system, memory, and emotion. This has a detrimental effect on your overall brain health.

Let us see some of the signs which may indicate the onset of certain complications arising from an over indulgence in these games.
1. You spend hours on the computer or related gaming devices and devote lesser hours for your family and friends.
2. You get agitated when someone stops you midway through the game
3. You become socially isolated and show signs of occasional mood swings
4. You are unable to keep a track of time once you start playing
5. You repeatedly neglect your studies, resulting in a dip in performance at school

Why does this happen?
All of the above signs indicate that sooner or later you might develop neurological problems. When you spend an excessive number of hours on playing and navigating through the games, the ‘hippocampus’ portion of your brain shows signs of decreased gray matter. As a result, the volume of the hippocampus shrinks, causing severe nerve related disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression, and overall general stress.

One of the biggest reasons behind this is a lack of self-control. Most of the video games will encourage you to steal cars, run away after a theft and kill your enemies. Moreover, if you succeed, you are rewarded. This naturally unleashes a blatant urge for the gratification of all these awkward desires in your real life too. Hence, once you are encountered with the reality, you tend to show violent behavior.

Benefits of Yoga + Walking Vs Gyming

To keep up good health, it is absolutely necessary for one to indulge in physical exercise or activities. Physical activities, in general, are linked to a host of good benefits, such as reduced stress and a healthier and better outlook, besides increasing the body's resistance against complications like heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes and muscle pain among others problems.

Similarly, the practice of yoga is an ancient tradition well known for its health benefits. In addition, walking can further complement the practice of yoga and they can together prove to be highly advantageous, to the extent where they can be possibly regarded a better alternative to the act of gyming.

Benefits:
Here are a few benefits of gym workouts followed by the benefits of yoga plus walking: 

Benefits of gym and other exercises:

  1. Keep muscles fit
  2. Enhance respiration and perspiration
  3. Helps in weight loss
  4. Relieve stress
  5. Increase appetite and food consumption

Benefits of yoga and walking:

  1. Keep you active throughout the day
  2. Help bowel movement
  3. Increase mind control over the body
  4. Improve blood circulation
  5. Relieve anxiety and keeps one stress free
  6. Can be practiced anywhere and everywhere

Differences:
Although it can be argued that gym workouts are better than yoga and vice-versa, the subject matter is highly ambiguous and debatable. Since both activities are good for your health, physically as well as mentally, it is very difficult to say which one is better; perhaps a detailed comparison of the differences between the two may be more helpful:

  1. While gymming and other exercises focus on building the body and helping you attain the desired body figure, yoga and walking aims at regulating the entire body mechanism, with more emphasis on mental control.
  2. While gym workouts may be more expensive, yoga requires minimal accessories and is therefore, more economically convenient.
  3. Yoga is suitable for people of all ages, whereas gymming and other intense physical activities are not advisable for old people or those with specific medical ailments like hypertension and heart problems.
  4. There are minimal withdrawal effects with yoga, in contrast to gym workouts.
  5. Gymming requires you to go to the gym, whereas yoga and walking can be done anywhere and everywhere.

Fun and Penis Games: Bring on the Body Paint

Fun and Penis Games: Bring on the Body Paint


When a man is eager to dive into penis games, he might have some really interesting thoughts in mind. But the last thing a guy wants to do is play with something fun in bed - such as body paint - and then wind up with an itchy penis in the aftermath. The good news is that some careful attention to the types of penis games he's playing, as well as great penis care afterward, can help ensure that a man has all the fun of the games but none of the itchy aftermath.

Fun with body paint

Many couples like the idea of body paint as a way to become more intimate and explore fun in bed. Body paint can definitely be a boon to a couple's enjoyment! But the key lies in choosing the right kind of paint to get the job done without leading to skin issues as soon as the fun is over.

Start by looking for body paint that is specifically designed to be used on the skin. In fact, go a step further and find even more gentle paints that are designed to be used on any part of the body, including the penis. These paints will be entirely non-toxic and usually derived from all-natural ingredients. Keep in mind they might not actually be billed as 'body paints.' They might be called 'body makeup' or 'liquid makeup' or the like.

Before breaking out the paints for fun on the penis and other sensitive areas, make sure the paint really will be okay on sensitive skin. To that end, try doing a test patch a few days ahead of time to make sure there is no reaction. Do this testing on a patch of skin that is rather sensitive, such as the inside of the elbow, the backside of the knee, the inner thigh, or anywhere else where relatively thin and sensitive skin resides. If there is any redness or rash that appears after use, that's a sign that it should not go on the penis!

Keep in mind that this test must be done a few days ahead of time to account for any delayed reactions. Some paints might seem fine at first, and the skin will only react badly to them several days later. This test will help a guy avoid that problem.

Preparation and aftermath

When a guy is preparing for the fun of body paint with a partner, there are a few things he can do to make the session much more fun. Since body paint sometimes stains fabrics, it's a good idea to put an old set of sheets on the bed, just in case. If he's going to play with the paint elsewhere, it's a good idea to cover furniture, the floor or the like with a sheet or blanket that he won't mind getting stained.

Some couples choose to shave their nether regions in order to make the paint go on more smoothly. This is an option for a guy, but he must do it a few days before the big event. Shaving immediately before can leave tiny cuts on the skin, which can lead to stinging or even infection if they are invaded by the body paint.

Once the fun is over and the body paint experience is a fond memory, a guy should clean the paint from the skin gently but firmly, using a good cleanser he knows will not irritate the area. He can then turn to the moisturizing powers of Shea butter and vitamin E in a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). This intense hydration can help prevent any dryness that might occur after the big event, alleviate an itchy penis problem and keep his member in great shape for future penis games that he wants to try.

Child Addicted To Video Games - Know Its Impact On Their Minds!

Child Addicted To Video Games - Know Its Impact On Their Minds!

Online gaming disorder is a serious Mental Health situation. Often parents are seen worrying about their children who cut off themselves from daily life, school, studies, eating food, playing, socializing with others.

Gaming disorder can be called a disorder when a child is seen playing video games instead of participating in age-appropriate activities such as attending school, sports, and other extra-curricular activities. It has been observed that in extreme case children play up to 8 hours a day leaving all other activities a child is supposed to do in a day.

Parents need to understand it’s their fault and not the child’s fault for this addiction. Unsupervised children devoid of parental attention tend to be addicted to online activities.

Some parents succeed and some fail; parents experiment with “trust the child” philosophy, others have flat out given up on breaking this addiction. It is practically impossible to monitor the children around the clock nor can parents disconnect them from electronics in today’s world. What is needed is discipline.

 

Here are the few tips for parents on what can be done if their child is addicted to online gaming.

  1. Talk to the child: Explain to the child how gaming is affecting his/her life. How studies are affecting or may affect if the situation isn’t curbed now. Give some realistic examples with their results by showing concern about them. Most importantly don’t be abusive and aggressive. Start slowly and be patient.
  2. Engage their day: Very often it is seen that both parents are working and the child is all alone at home and hence engages in video games. Engage the child with any other activities he/she enjoys like dancing, any sport, singing class (anything of the child choice, kindly do not force)
  3. Devote time to children: Working and non-working parents both have to spend quality time with children. Spending time creates a bond between you and your child, it also diverts the attention away from gaming.
  4. Set up a specific time for gaming: Refraining the child from gaming completely would create deadly results, hence set up a time in a day and stick to it. Let the child know that he/she would only be able to play for an hour.
  5. Be good role models for kids: Children imitate elders/parents. So if parents themselves are seen glued to laptops and mobiles, parents lose the right to say or scold children.
  6. Set up a time table: Parents along with the child should set up a time table. Right from waking up, school, studies-homework, food, playing, helping in household activities, gaming, and sleeping. All should be time-framed. Reward the child for adhering to the timetable. Slowly condition the child for good habits.
  7. Monitor the behavior: Sometimes the impact of video games can result in an aggressive child, watch out their behavior and nicely explain the difference the real world and online gaming. Gaming desensitizes an individual from gore and death. An aggressive child is a product of dysfunctional parenting.
  8. Real vs Unreal: Explain to the child that what he/she enjoys or whatever feels is virtual and not real. Instead, make more friends, play outside. Frequently indulge in outdoor activities to create a synergy with nature.
  9. Play video games with your child: It is okay to play online games with your children. “It gives them a sense of understanding that my parent isn’t so bad and just keeps yelling at me but shows some interest in the game I play”. It gives an understanding to the parent too of what and why the child plays and is addictive too?
  10. Physical exercise: Engage the child in any kind of physical exercise, yoga/karate/martial art, any sport. This will help the child to exert and sleep early.
  11. Express Gratitude: Encourage your child to express gratitude for five positive incidents during the day. It could be as simple as a meal of their choice or the fresh air that they breathe.

Video gaming isn’t completely negative, it helps a child in developing decision-making capabilities and hand-eye coordination. It only needs to be done in moderation and not at the expense of other social interactions.
