Swimming Pool / Necessity of a Swimming pool in DIU premises
« on: January 12, 2020, 07:26:12 AM »
We have almost everything a world class university could have. And new things are going to be introduced very soon. However, I think there should be a fantastic swimming pool as well in the Permanent Campus of DIU. It will not only enhance and complete another objective of DIU but also will help students and university staffs (faculty & admin included) to be fit and get energised after a hectic day. It can also produced swimmers who can in future become a national treasure for us.

I hope the concerned authority of DIU will give it a thought.

Most of the time, we think that being healthy takes a lot of effort, time, and money. But in reality, you can turn your life around and feel healthier simply by incorporating a few new habits into your daily routine. For example, you can whiten your teeth using fruit and enjoy an extra cup of hot coffee for a healthy gallbladder. In this article, we’ll show you how many natural and affordable ways there are out there to treat yourself.

1. Try grape juice to heal your migraines

If you suffer from migraines and are looking for a more natural way to stop the insufferable pain, then grape juice is the answer. Since migraines mainly come from an imbalance in brain chemicals such as serotonin, grape juice can come in and save the day. It will not act as a painkiller but as a preventative. So the minute you feel a migraine coming on, take some grape juice to prevent it.

Since grapes are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin B2, they can help stop you from getting a migraine. Let us break it down for you. Vitamin B2, otherwise known as riboflavin which is responsible for treating migraines, helps to balance out the chemicals in your brain and acts as an iron antagonist to reduce the iron levels in your blood that might be causing migraines.

2. Eat salmon to help your hair grow out shiny and healthy

Healthy looking hair is something that all of us dream of, especially those mornings when we wake up, look in the mirror, and wonder how our bad hair days far outnumber the good ones. The thing is, it’s not just what you put on the ends of your hair, but also what you eat. The key trick here is salmon. Salmon is rich in vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids which are essential to keep your hair and scalp hydrated.

In addition, omega-3 lubricates the scalp and keeps hair follicles clean and healthy. Since omega-3 is really a protein, a lack of it prevents the normal pace of hair growth. So the more salmon you eat, the healthier you and your hair will be. In addition, due to its moisturizing effects, omega-3 reduces inflammation, helps treat dandruff, and reduces dryness which all contribute to hair breakage.

3. You can shed extra pounds by drinking lemon + salt water

It’s a known fact that lemon water in is healthy for you, but most of the time it’s just not as tasty as a glass of orange juice or even an energy drink. Lemon and salt are the 2 magic ingredients that help flush out toxins from your body and help shed extra pounds quite fast. This is because it increases your bowel movements and decreases your appetite, thus eliminating excess calorie intake.

Lemon and salt water can also speed up your metabolism and there’s even research to back this up. According to the National Institute of Health, drinking plenty of water increases your metabolism by increasing the mitochondrial function (which helps to generate more energy in the body without needing any calories to do so) and generates thermogenesis (the metabolic process where calories are burned faster to produce heat).

4. Eat your breakfast within the first 30 minutes after you wake up

Right after you’ve had your lemon and salt water right when you wake up, it’s important to have your breakfast within half an hour after you’ve opened your eyes. Even when you don’t feel hungry, missing your breakfast is a huge mistake especially when you’re trying to lose or maintain weight. According to the National Weight Control Registry, more than 70% of people who were on a successful diet ate breakfast within half an hour after waking up.

This is because your metabolism is relatively slow when you sleep, and it takes an hour for it to start working at a normal pace. So, eating breakfast before your metabolism is completely awake will make you feel fuller for a longer time and it will prevent you from eating a heavier breakfast or a bigger meal later in the day.

5. Whiten your teeth using fruit

The best thing anyone can wear is a bright smile, but what about those times when you don’t feel confident showing your teeth because they seem a little bit yellow? Well, don’t worry because you can change all that depending on your diet. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in anti-oxidants can work wonders when it comes to removing yellow stains from your teeth.

Strawberries can help whiten your teeth and remove both coffee and wine stains.
Apples act as natural stain removers because they help produce more saliva in your mouth and serve as a “self-cleaning” agent.
Oranges or any kind of tart fruit help to neutralize the acidity of your mouth that causes tooth decay.

6. Drink more coffee for a healthy gallbladder

Even though coffee might be associated with an unhealthy diet, coffee in its purest form is actually good for you. Think about it: it’s bean juice made out of hot water and has a lot of health benefits that we’ve covered before in other articles. One of coffee’s most important benefits is that it promotes a healthy gallbladder.

According to research, coffee activates contractions in the gallbladder which is believed to be caused by the caffeine in it. In addition, research has revealed that increased gallbladder contractions resulting from coffee can prevent minor crystals in the gallbladder from becoming large gallbladder stones. So, you’d better get yourself a cup of hot coffee for a healthy gallbladder and next time someone tells you that you’re addicted, show them this article!

Great to know. However, remain away from notifications for busy working people is really difficult. But great initiative for those who really want to stay away from smartphones, were looking for a way out.

Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes, you need a bit more workout motivation to reach the body you’ve always wanted.

There are some days you can’t even bring yourself to look at your cross-training shoes and gym clothes when the alarm goes off. You just want to hit “snooze” and sleep all day.

Workout motivation is different for each individual, so it’s important to find what gives you the extra push to follow through on your goals. Take a look at these 12 tips to keep yourself motivated to keep up your exercise routine and achieve your fitness goals.

Some of them are science-based, while others are common sense. You can try them out and stick with the ones that work best for you.

12 Workout Motivation Tips To Get That Goal:

1. Get Dressed for a Successful Workout

Even if you don’t want to work out, get dressed like you are going to the gym or are about to go on a run anyway. Putting on your training shoes and athletic clothing sends a message that it’s time to work out.

The message isn’t subtle. By the time you’re finished and ready to leave the house, you can overcome the motivation barrier.

This tip fits in the “fake it ’til you make it” category.

2. Get an Early Start

You might have heard that people who work out first thing in the morning achieve more of their exercise goals. Science has shown that some people are morning people, and that others simply aren’t. However, whether you’re a morning person or not doesn’t really matter in this case. People naturally lose motivation over the course of the day.

According to sports psychologist Christopher Friesen, people who put off working out until a later time in the day run the risk of running out of intrinsic motivation, therefore leaving you with either a worse workout or no workout at all.

3. Use S.M.A.R.T. Goals For Your Workouts

Do you have ultra-basic goals for your workouts like “losing weight” or “getting fit?” This type of goal isn’t bad to have in mind, but it doesn’t quite fit the S.M.A.R.T. framework that will help you get to these big, overall targets.

S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and fit into a specific Time-frame. Short-term goals fitting the S.M.A.R.T. model could be going down one belt notch in three weeks, or reducing your resting heart rate by five beats a minute within four weeks.

4. Change Up Your Workouts

Doing the same workout routine every day is one of the most common exercise errors. Not only does the same daily workout get boring, it also leads to rapid plateauing and frustration.

Use a cross-training approach and don’t stick only to the gym. Get outside a day or two a week for a run, swim, or cycling session. Vary workouts while at the gym.

5. Build a Real Reward Into Your Workout

Choose something that you enjoy, and incorporate it into the time you spend working out.

If you listen to music or other audio while exercising, pick a new streaming music channel you want to check out, and only listen to it while you’re working out.

If you listen to podcasts or audiobooks, use the same methods. This way, you’ll tie your interests with exercising and increase your motivation.

6. Get Your Money’s Worth

Some people are money motivated. If you’ve signed up for a great gym with a hefty price tag, tell yourself that every time you go, you’re reducing the per-visit cost and getting your money’s worth.

The same is true of investing in a personal trainer. Not only will the trainer help your motivation, you will also want to get your money’s worth from the training sessions.

You can also pay yourself a dollar or two every time you work out. Put the money in a jar and spend it on something great after a month or two.

7. Know Your Motivational Personality Type

A lot of motivational tips for fitness are geared toward “positive thinking” personalities. Inspirational images and ideas of “being the fittest” or “being the best you can be” work for a lot of people.

If you tend to see the downside of things, you can turn this to your advantage. Fitness experts advise people who have “glass half-empty” personalities to remind themselves of all the bad things that could happen if they don’t work out.

Maybe you don’t want your arms to flap around like your third-grade teacher, or maybe you want to avoid a huge belly. Choose the motivation style that works for your personality — don’t force a positive attitude if that simply isn’t who you are.

8. Take a Break When You Need It

If you’re losing motivation to work out, your body could be sending a subconscious message. Fitness experts say that a motivation dip can signal overtraining issues.

Solve the problem by taking a break from your workout routine. Keep moving, but try a slower pace and alternate activities.

Give yourself permission to exercise differently for a specific period, and once the break is over, return to your exercise program.

9. Try Caffeine Before a Workout

The International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism conducted a study of athletes and caffeine use. The athletes who consumed caffeine in some form before a workout burned about 15% more calories for three hours after they worked out.

Caffeine doesn’t have to be coffee. You can get sufficient caffeine from matcha, which is powdered green tea.

You could try a matcha green tea latte made with almond milk. Matcha has more nutrition than other types of tea and also has antioxidants.

10. Stick With Positive People and Build a Tribe

Isolation causes a lot of problems, and one of them is providing you with a lower motivation to achieve fitness goals. People are social, and spending time with positive people at the gym can help you stick with your program even if you’re feeling rough, tired, and unmotivated.

Sometimes, a workout buddy is all that is needed. Becoming part of a larger fitness “tribe” can help every member achieve their fitness and health goals.

11. Sign a Fitness Contract

Write down your fitness goals and program and turn it into a contract. Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Stanford professor of medicine, says that approaching fitness goals by signing a contract can be effective.

He recommends making a contract to do a specific amount of exercise every week for a specific number of weeks. If you fail, you have to pay a friend or family member money.

If you don’t pay, you’ll be embarrassed because your friends and family will know you didn’t live up to the contract.

12. Create a “Habit Loop” With Tangible Rewards

Extrinsic or external short-term rewards help reinforce intrinsic or internal habits and attitudes. Exercise scientists say that we can form a “habit loop” by tying a positive short-term reward to exercise routines.

Every time you work out, you can give yourself a small but real reward. After a few repetitions, the cycle of doing the workout and subsequently getting the reward will establish a regular “habit loop.”

Some post-workout rewards include:

Watching an episode of a favorite show
Having a glass of healthy juice
Going to a movie
If your current routine makes it hard for you to find any workout motivation, you may want to change your regiment. You may want to try this quick and easy fat shredding routine you can do at home for those days when you drag your feet to go to the gym:

Whichever of these tips you choose, keep in mind your individual personality and fitness goals. There is no “one size fits all” approach to being motivated for a regular schedule of physical activity. Whether you are money-motivated or respond more to positive or negative motivational triggers, give yourself time and try different approaches. You will find the right combination of intrinsic and extrinsic techniques to achieve your fitness goals.

রসুন এবং মধুর অনেক উপকারিতা তা জানা। কিন্তু মধু তে কি আসলেই ওজন কমে?

IT has become very common now a days. ON the road and wherever you go, you will see people with headphones. On the road it also creates possibilities of road accident as well and in some cases it happens. We should be aware of this issue.

রঙিন খাবার তালিকায় থাকলে ভাল হয়, যেমন পাকা পেঁপে বা আম, কলা, একটু প্রোটিন থাকতে পারে। ডিম খুবই প্রয়োজনীয় একটি খাবার দিন শুরু করার জন্য। সাথে কিছু খেজুরও থাকতে পারে। ধন্যবাদ।
