The Hidden Ab Muscle That Will Get You a Six-Pack

Do You Have a Body Image Disorder

When I was 12-years-old, my dad brought home a set of 10-pound dumbbells from the local sporting goods store. I had no clue how to use them, but I remember grabbing them from his room one day, taking them into my bedroom, lying face-down on the edge of the bed, and attempting a teenage boy’s version of biceps curls until I couldn’t lift those weights anymore..


I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. But one thing I did know for certain: the next day my arms were very, very sore. And – perhaps a little bigger? Just like many boys, I flexed my muscles in the mirror, and it certainly did seem like my arms grew a bit. Not only did that mean these dumbbells might make me stronger or faster, but they might make me look better too – and at that time in my life, that meant two things: girls looking at me and guys being jealous of me.

Through high school I continued to lift weights and actually got what I (and others) would describe as a nice “bod.” And

Can Yoga workouts help people with pain control and decrease emotions of attack and inner anger?

5 Signs of Menopause You Should Know

Menopause is a term used to describe the changes women go through around the time they stop menstruating. Generally this happens around the age of 50. Not only does menopause represent the end of a woman’s reproductive cycle but it also is associated with a variety of other changes.

Women do experience menopause in a variety of different ways. Some women go through menopause over a long period of time while others describe a much briefer and more subdued menopausal experience. Hormonal changes including declines in estrogen are thought to be at the heart of many of the changes associated with menopause.

Some women also go through a sudden onset of surgical-induced menopause if they have a hysterectomy or any other medical procedure that limits the flow of blood to the ovaries. This menopausal experience can be more dramatic since hormonal changes happen very quickly rather than over the course of many years.

Regardless of individual differences, there are certain signs of menopause that tend to be quite common for women. It is helpful to be aware of changes related to menopause since it can sometimes be mistaken for other physical conditions.

Healthy Diets For Toddlers And Young Children

How To Become More Confident From The Outside In

Developing robust self confidence can seem to be such an immensely personal thing; a quality acquired only by trial and error, something requiring lots of introspection and self-analysis.

If this were completely true, then precious few people would ever really be confident. Yet the fact is that many people are – regardless of whether they are capable of real introspection or profound self-analysis.

In reality, feeling good about ourself is directly related to self-esteem or how much we believe we are worthy of respect, from ourselves as well as from others. A perceived lack of respect prevents us from feeling we are capable of trying new things, let alone accomplishing or excelling at them.

A self-defeating dialog between inner and outer perceptions creates a cloud of inaction, and feelings of low self-confidence that can lead to anxiety, mood swings and feelings of depression.

Instead of viewing self-confidence as something that is developed exclusively from the inside, here are some tips that can help anyone connect with the outside world and so enhance inner feelings of confidence.

Take Care of the Basics

One of the foundations in self-confidence building is to recognize

How To Take Better Care Of Yourself After A Heart Attack

Life is really put into perspective when you suffer a heart attack. After such a medical emergency, you wonder if you will ever be able to enjoy all of the activities you once did. You may even feel as if you need to be coddled and monitored for an extended period of time. This is just not the case. After a myocardial infarction, the damaged muscle will need time to heal. It will take about one to two months for scar tissue to fully form and to prepare the muscle to handle moderate to heavy activity once again. During this time, it is important to avoid stress and physical activity.

After recuperating from a heart attack, it is actually recommended that the patient begin to engage in physical activity again. Aerobic exercise is helpful. Walking, swimming, or biking allows the body to learn to use oxygen more efficiently. This puts less stress on the muscle that pumps oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. Moderate exercise is important to promoting overall health as well. It brings bad cholesterol levels down, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure levels, and helps people manage their weight.

What Exactly Causes Constipation and How to Prevent It

In a normal healthy person, the bowel movement or the emptying of the bowels is supposed to happen swiftly and with ease. If you have had difficulty ever since you were a child, you may have come to realize that some amount of straining at emptying of the bowels is normal.

It is not.

It is supposed to happen with complete ease with no straining whatsoever. However it doesn’t mean that if you have to strain a little, once in a while, it is wrong. Occasionally if you have to strain a bit, it is not a big deal. But for the most of the time, the movement is supposed to happen kind of automatically.

Formally constipation is defined as a condition in which there is difficulty in emptying the bowels. Bowel movement becomes infrequent. The difficulty is present in very much all bowel movement. Also in constipation feces becomes hard. According to National Institute of Health (NIH) a bowel movement of less than three times a week qualifies as constipation.
