5 STEPS TO POSITIVE THINKING

Photobucket

Is your inner monologue bringing you down? Here’s how to turn your thinking around:

1. Take a just-the-facts approach. Challenge irrational beliefs that chip away at your confidence. If you think everyone is laughing at you, demand evidence. Are they actually laughing? Could they be laughing at something else?

2. Don’t be perfect. It isn’t possible—but you knew that. So why worry if someone doesn’t like you or you’re not masterful and competent in every situation?

3. When something bad happens, don’t automatically think the worst (“I failed the test because I’m stupid”). There are usually many reasons things go sour. Look at all of them objectively and focus on those you can change (“Next time, I’ll do better if I study harder”).

4. If self-examination does reveal a personal weakness, keep the implications from spiraling (“I can’t do anything well”). And remember: Recognizing that you’re weak in one area doesn’t make you a weak person. Instead, it can help you identify where to invest more effort and guide you to your strengths.

5. Loosen your grip on the controls. Inevitably, things don’t always go your way. Accept that the world isn’t under your control and strive to be calm in the face of adversity. That way, two problems—the upsetting situation and your reaction to it—are whittled to just one.

9 BEST FOODS FOR YOUR SKIN

1. Low fat yogurt …

Low fat dairy products are full of vitamin A. This essential vitamin does wonders for our skin. If you have a thyroid problem or diabetes that’s another reason for you to stock up on organic law fat yogurts!

2. Berries…
I am talking about strawberries, blueberries and blackberries (No, not the phone!). These berries have a great antioxidant capacity which means – the more of these we have, the longer our skin will look youthful and healthy!

3. Essential fatty acids…
Our skin needs essential fatty acids. If fish isn’t your thing (like salmon), try walnuts, flax seed or canola oil. All these will give you an amazing result! Omega 3 and Omega 6 may sound like a Sci-fi flick, but these fatty acids are a must for a beautiful, well moisturized skin.

4. Green tea…
This drink contains polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory characteristics. And despite what they say, a good tea will not dehydrate your body, it will only work as an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent that’ll keep bacteria at bay and will fight off those free radicals that make our skin age early.

5. Water…
Did I even need to mention it? 🙂 Good hydration is our skin’s best friend, right? And I’m talking about good bottled or filtered water in its purest form and not sodas or energy drinks. So ensure that you’re getting at least 8 glasses of water a day for your beautiful skin.

6. Avocados…
Avocado is rich in B-complex vitamins and essential oils and works like an anti-inflammatory agent. It also soothes skin that is red, irritated or blotchy. You can even mix it with yogurt and berries to add some flavour!

7. Mangoes…
Yum! I’m glad this one’s on the list. Lots of vitamin A is in store with this skin do-gooder! This fruit will repair your skin cells so that your skin doesn’t look flaky. It has only 70 calories per serving so it’s ideal for your weight loss program as well.

8. Almonds…
Vitamin E helps to moisturize your skin from within. It also protects your skin from damage and premature aging. Eating almonds can help your facial tissue stay in its best shape for years!

9. Cottage cheese…
Apart from calcium, cottage cheese is great for selenium and it’s an essential mineral for a youthful, glowing skin, Ladies!
