Concern authority should take steps to restrict the use of formalin rather than the way to detect it. Because prevention is better than cure.

What Is Positive Thinking?

"I always hear people talk about the benefits of positive thinking. What exactly is positive thinking and how can it be used to improve health and wellness?"


Do you tend to see the glass as half empty or half full? You have probably heard that question plenty of times. Your answer relates directly to the concept of positive thinking and whether you have a positive or negative outlook on life. Positive thinking plays an important role in positive psychology, a subfield devoted to the study of what makes people happy and fulfilled.

Research has found that positive thinking can aid in stress management and even plays an important role in your overall health and well-being.
What Is Positive Thinking?

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." - Abraham Lincoln

So what exactly is positive thinking? You might be tempted to assume that it implies seeing the world through rose-colored lenses by ignoring or glossing over the negative aspects of life. However, positive thinking actually means approaching life's challenges with a positive outlook. It does not necessarily mean avoiding or ignoring the bad things; instead, it involves making the most of potentially bad situations, trying to see the best in other people, and viewing yourself and your abilities in a positive light.

Some researchers, including positive psychologist Martin Seligman, often frame positive thinking in terms of explanatory style. Your explanatory style is how you explain why events happened. People with an optimistic explanatory style tend to give themselves credit when good things happen, but typically blame outside forces for bad outcomes. They also tend to see negative events as temporary and atypical.

On the other hand, individuals with a pessimistic explanatory style often blame themselves when bad things happen, but fail to give themselves adequate credit for successful outcomes. They also have a tendency to view negative events as expected and lasting. As you can imagine, blaming yourself for events outside of your control or viewing these unfortunate events as a persistent part of your life can have a detrimental impact on your state of mind.

Positive thinkers are more apt to use an optimistic explanatory style, but the way in which people attribute events can also vary depending upon the exact situation. For example, a person who is generally a positive thinker might use a more pessimistic explanatory style in particularly challenging situations, such as at work or at school.

Food Habit / 10 Bad Habits that Damage Brain

I am not sure whether this has already been published or not. Rather I wish to post this again for awareness.

ব্রেইন ধ্বংসকারী ১০টি অভ্যাস :

সন্দেহ নাই আমাদের শরীরের সবচেয়ে মূল্যবান অংশ হচ্ছে আমাদের ব্রেইন। সবাই আমরা চাই আমাদের ব্রেইনের ক্ষমতা ক্ষুরধার থাকুক। তাই ব্রেইনের জন্য সবচেয়ে ক্ষতিকর ১০টি অভ্যাস দেয়া হল। তরুণ বয়স থেকে ধ্বংসাত্বক অভ্যাস থেকে নিজেকে দূরে না রাখতে পারলে ব্রেইন অকালেই বুড়িয়ে যাবে।

১. সকালে নাশতা না করা -
অনেকেই ব্যস্ততার কারণে সকালের নাশতা না করেই বাসা থেকে বের হয়ে যাই। কিন্তু এই অভ্যাসটা ভালো নয়। কারণ সকালে নাশতা না করলে নিম্ন রক্তে গ্লুকোজস্বল্পতার কারণে ব্রেইন পর্যাপ্ত পুষ্টি পায় না। এতে ধীরে ধীরে ব্রেইন মারাত্মক ক্ষতিগ্রস্ত হয়। তাই সকালের নাশতা করতে ভুলে যাবেন না।

২. অতিরিক্ত খাবার গ্রহণ -
অনেক সময় প্রয়োজনের অতিরিক্ত খাবার খেয়ে ফেলি। মনে হয় মাঝেমধ্যে একটু বেশি খেলে কী আর হবে! কিন্তু অতিরিক্ত খাবার গ্রহণের অভ্যাস আমাদের ব্রেইনের রক্তনালির ইলাস্টিসিটি নষ্ট করে দেয়। ফলে অনেক ধরনের মানসিক সমস্যার উৎপত্তি হতে পারে।

৩. ধূমপান -
ধূমপানের ক্ষতিকর প্রভাব বলে শেষ করা যাবে না। তাই যারা ধূমপান করেন, তাদের জন্য সতর্কতা-ধূমপানে কেবল ফুসফুস ক্যান্সার নয় বরং এতে করে ব্রেইন সংকুচিত হয়ে যায়। ফলে আলঝেইমারস নামের স্মৃতি বিলোপকারী রোগেরও উদ্ভব হতে পারে।

৪. অতিরিক্ত মিষ্টি গ্রহণ -
অনেকের ধারণা মিষ্টি বেশি খেলে ব্রেইন ভালো থাকে। কিন্তু অতিরিক্ত মিষ্টি খেলে সেটা আমিষ ও অন্যান্য পুষ্টি উপাদানের পরিপাক ও শোষণে বাধা সৃষ্টি করে যা ব্রেইনের ওপর ক্ষতিকর প্রভাব ফেলে এবং ব্রেইনের বিকাশ সাধনের অন্তরায় হয়ে দাঁড়ায়।

৫. বায়ুদূষণ -
বায়ুদূষণের জন্য ব্রেইনের কার্যক্ষমতা ধীরে ধীরে কমে যায়। দূষণের ফলে অক্সিজেনসমৃদ্ধ বাতাস আমাদের ব্রেইনে যেতে পারে না। ফলে ব্রেইন ধীরে ধীরে পুষ্টির অভাবজনিত স্বাভাবিক কার্যকর ক্ষমতা হারাতে থাকে। তাই বায়ুদূষণযুক্ত পরিবেশ থেকে দূরে থাকুন এবং বায়ুদূষণরোধে নিজেও অন্যকে সচেতন করুন।

৬. নিদ্রাহীনতা -
ঘুম ব্রেইনের বিশ্রামের জন্য জরুরি। তাই পর্যাপ্ত ঘুম ব্রেইন কোষের স্বাভাবিক কার্যাবলি নিয়ন্ত্রণের জন্য গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। যারা দীর্ঘদিন ধরে নিদ্রাহীনতায় ভুগছেন কিংবা কাজের ব্যস্ততার জন্য ঘুমানোর জন্য পর্যাপ্ত সময় পাচ্ছেন না-তারা সতর্ক হোন। কারণ নিদ্রাহীনতা ব্রেইনের কোষের মৃত্যুর জন্য দায়ী। সুতরাং পর্যাপ্ত ঘুমকে কেবল সময় নষ্ট হিসেবে নয়, বরং ব্রেইনের বিশ্রামের জন্য দরকারি হিসেবেও নিন।

৭. ঘুমানোর সময় মাথা আবৃত করা -
অনেকে লেপ, কাথা বা চাদরে মাথা মুড়ে ঘুমান। এটা ব্রেইনের জন্য ভালো নয়। কারণ মাথা আবৃত করে ঘুমালে নিঃশ্বাসের কার্বন ডাই-অক্সাইড ঘনীভূত হয় এবং অক্সিজেনের পরিমাণ কমে যায়। এতে ব্রেইনের ক্ষতি হয়।

৮. অসুস্থ শরীরে অতিরিক্ত কাজ -
যখন অসুস্থ হই, তখন উচিত কোনো পরিশ্রমী কাজ অথবা পড়াশোনা থেকে বিরত থেকে ব্রেইনকে বিশ্রাম দেয়া। তা না হলে অসুস্থতার সময় অতিরিক্ত চাপ ব্রেইনের কার্যক্ষমতা কমিয়ে দেয়। ফলে ব্রেইনের দীর্ঘমেয়াদি মারাত্মক ক্ষতিসাধন হয়।

৯. চিন্তা না করা -
বেশি বেশি চিন্তা করুন, ব্রেইন কোষের উদ্দীপনার জন্য চিন্তা-ভাবনা করা অত্যন্ত জরুরি। যত বেশি সৃষ্টিশীল চিন্তায় মনোযোগ দিতে পারবেন, তত বেশি আপনার ব্রেইন কোষ উদ্দীপিত হবে। আপনি আরও বেশি দক্ষ ও মনোযোগী হতে পারবেন যেকোনো কাজে। কারণ চিন্তাহীন ব্রেইন ধীরে ধীরে সংকুচিত হয়ে ব্রেইনের কার্যক্ষমতা নষ্ট করে দেয়।

১০. কথা কম বলা -
চুপচাপ থাকাও ব্রেইনের জন্য ক্ষতিকর। কারণ যত বেশি বুদ্ধিবৃত্তিক আলোচনায় অংশ নিতে পারবেন, সেটা ব্রেইনের স্বাভাবিক দক্ষতা বৃদ্ধির জন্য তত কাজে লাগবে। তাই চুপচাপ নয় বরং কার্যক্ষেত্রে বেশি বেশি আলোচনায় অংশ নিয়ে ব্রেইনকে সতেজ রাখুন।

Health Tips / Tips for Soothing Bug Bites

Tips for Soothing Bug Bites (from Herbal Household Remedies)

    Tea tree oil. If you are stung, remove the stinger if there is one. Apply tea tree oil liberally in a circular motion surrounding the entry point — be gentle touching the point of entry! Let dry and the pain and swelling should ease in two to three minutes. Re-apply if needed.

    Baking soda. Mix baking soda with water to form a paste. Again, remove the stinger and apply the paste. Cover with a gauze bandage or paper towel and tape. Leave on for one half hour or more until the pain is gone.

    Onion. Relieve the itch from bug bites with an onion. The sulfur in onions neutralizes the chemicals that cause the itch. Simply slice a yellow onion in half and rub one of the cut sides on the bite. The itching should stop immediately. Refrigerate the onion in a sealed container to use again if the itching resumes. Make a fresh slice before reapplying it.

    Vinegar. Good for spider bites too. Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and place it over the spider/bug bite. If you get bites on your hand or foot, put the soaked cotton ball in a bag and put your infected hand/foot in the bag over night. Make sure that the bag is not tight around the wrist/ankle. As an alternative, you may hold the soaked cotton ball in place by a band aid. By morning, the swelling and/or soreness should be gone as if you had hardly been bitten at all.

Tips to Keep Bugs from Biting:

    1. Protect your child by covering that delicate skin with lightweight, long sleeved shirts, long pants and socks. Insects may be attracted to floral prints. Choose light, solid colored fabrics.

    2. Mosquitoes are usually most active at dusk and just before dawn. Avoid playing outside during these peak hours.

    3. Keep your window and door screens in good repair. When possible keep your child protected indoors or behind mosquito netting.

    4. If eating outside, use an outdoor fan to blow away mosquitoes.

    5. To reduce mosquito breeding near your home, plant scented geraniums, lemon thyme, marigold, tansy, citrosa plants, sweet basil and/or sassafras.

    6. Eliminate common mosquito breeding sites such as sources of standing water (old tires, pools, plastic pots, buckets, garbage cans or clogged roof gutters). Change water in birdbaths every other day.

    7. Make your yard friendly for natural predators such as ladybugs, bats, dragonflys, praying mantis, spiders and birds. Stock a pond with goldfish or freshwater minnows.

    8. Use yellow light bulbs (non-attractive, to bugs) in outdoor fixtures.

    9. Fragrances attract insects. Avoid using scented products (such as soap or shampoo) on your child or yourself.

    10. Choose safer bug repellent products (but consider efficacy if you have local insect-borne disease risks.) has a great guide to natural bug repellents.

Positive Thinking / Try to be positive
« on: January 15, 2013, 03:24:50 PM »
A few common strategies involve learning how to identify negative thoughts and replacing these thoughts with more positive ones. While it might take some time, eventually you may find that thinking positively starts to come more naturally. Consider putting some of the following tips into practice.

Avoid Negative Self-Talk

Self-talk involves the things you mentally tell yourself. Think of this as the inner voice inside your mind that analyzes how you perform and interact in the world around you. If your self-talk centers on negative thoughts, your self-esteem can suffer. When you start thinking critical thoughts about yourself, take a moment to pause and assess.

Elizabeth Scott,'s Guide to Stress Management, has some great tips for how to turn negative self-talk into positive self-talk. She advises readers to start by noticing their thought patterns and then focus on changing these into more positive ones. When you catch yourself engaging in a negative thought, mentally telling yourself to "Stop" can help break the pattern.

Try Humor

It can be really difficult to stay positive when there is little humor or lightness in your life. Even when you are facing challenges, it is important to stay open to laughter and humor. Sometimes, simply recognizing the potential humor in a situation can lessen your stress and brighten your outlook. Seeking out sources of humor such as watching a funny sitcom or reading jokes online can help you think more positive thoughts.

Cultivate Optimism

Learning to think positive is like strengthening a muscle; the more you use it the stronger it will become. Researchers believe that your explanatory style, or how you explain events, is linked to whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. Optimists tend to have a positive explanatory style. If you attribute good things that happen to your own skill and effort, then you are probably an optimist. Pessimists, on the other hand, usually have a negative attributional style. If you credit these good events to outside forces, then you likely have a more pessimistic way of thinking.

The same principles hold true for how you explain negative events. Optimists tend to view bad or unfortunate events as isolated incidences that are outside of their control, while pessimists view such things as more common and often blame themselves. By taking a moment to analyze the event and ensure that you are giving yourself the credit you are due for the good things and not blaming yourself for things outside of your control, you can start to become more optimistic.
Keeping Working On It

There is not on-off switch for positive thinking. Even if you are a natural-born optimist, positive thinking can take effort in the face of challenging situations. Like any goal, the key is to stick with it for the long-term. Even if you find yourself dwelling on negative thoughts, you can look for ways to minimize negative self-talk and cultivate a more optimistic outlook.

Finally, do not be afraid to enlist the help of friends and family. When you start engaging in negative thinking, call a friend or family member who you can count on to offer positive encouragement and feedback. Remember that in order to think positively, you need to nurture yourself. Investing energy into things you enjoy and surrounding yourself with optimistic people are just two ways that you can encourage positive thinking in your life.
