 11 Essential Yoga Poses Everyone Should Practice
Ancient yoga tradition describes thousands -- and by some accounts, tens of thousands -- of yoga postures. But chances are, with your likely packed schedule, fitting in enough time to practice even a fraction of those postures is nearly impossible. Most of us, however, can find 10 minutes a day in a quiet place to practice a few of them. In fact, even 10 minutes a day can help you reap the benefits of yoga, including increased strength and flexibility, more energy, improved respiration, enhanced cardiovascular and circulatory health, improved sports performance, injury prevention and lower stress levels. You can always progress to include more and different poses in your practice, but start by doing these 11 essential poses, and then add to your asana arsenal as time and your body allow.

How to Use Tea Tree Oil for Yeast Infections

Tea tree essential oil is one alternative treatment for vaginal yeast infections. Tea tree oil, which has antibacterial and antifungal properties, work to fight different types of yeast infections. A 2006 study in "BMC Infectious Diseases" by Fracesca Mondello et al found terpinen-4-ol, an ingredient in tea tree oil, effective against vaginal yeast infections in rats. Researchers noted that tea tree oil could possibly be a treatment method for C. albicans vaginal infections. Choose one of the numerous methods using this essential oil for yeast infections. Speak to a certified aromatherapist on the proper ways to use essential oils and consult a doctor on the best treatment method for your yeast infection.

How to Make My Nails Grow Faster & Stronger

If you've always envied women with long, natural fingernails, make your fantasy of having beautiful nails a reality. Your nails may break after they reach a certain length because they lack moisture or are too weak to grow any longer. If your nails are opaque in color, pitted or curl at the ends, consult a doctor-- your symptoms may be the sign of a vitamin deficiency or illness. Otherwise, you can strengthen your nails at home if your doctor approves. Toss those acrylic fingernails and grow your own strong and healthy nails.

How to Make Your Hair Super Shiny When You're Air-Drying

You don't have to settle for a lackluster air dry thanks to these stylist-suggested tips.

I’m on the following life kicks: attempting to cook, lifting weights, arranging flowers (don’t ask), and almost exclusively air-drying my hair. The latter is mostly because I don’t feel like standing in a steamy locker room post-workout and sweating it out under a blow-dryer, and also just because I like sleep. The lack of heat tools in my routine has actually taught me to embrace and enjoy my natural texture, but I’m not going to lie, I miss the super shine that comes with an indulgent, cuticle-sealing blowout.

The colour of your nails also indicates you internal health. That’s why taking good care of your health is important along with your body care. Also, your hands  give an overview of your personality. Therefore you should take good care of your nails.

Here’s New Proof That Not All Fats Are Bad For You

Eating fat is not bad for your health if you’re opting for the right kinds, a new study suggests.


In the new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers looked at the diets of about 126,000 people who were enrolled in two large studies and followed for up to 32 years. The researchers documented the types of fat people ate at the start of the study every two to four years after that.

Recent science has been showing that the standard advice to avoid fat may be misguided, and while there’s still some debate over how healthy certain fats are compared to others, the picture is becoming more clear. The new study added to that knowledge, finding that eating more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids was linked to a lower risk of death, while eating more trans fat and saturated fat was associated with a higher risk of death. Compared to overall carbohydrate consumption, eating more saturated fat was linked to a small increase in total mortality, but was not linked to a higher risk of death from heart disease.

Weight Loss and Water Consumption Appear to Be Linked

Researchers are not sure why, but another study links low water consumption to obesity


The average American doesn’t drink nearly enough water—only 4 cups a day, by some estimates. At the same, high obesity rates here have barely budged, despite a continued focus on diet and physical activity.

Some researchers don’t think that’s a coincidence. “There’s so much focus on food and exercise, but so much more than just food and exercise goes into weight,” says Dr. Tammy Chang, assistant professor in the department of family medicine at the University of Michigan medical school.

Could the amount of water people drink have any link to their weight? In a new study published in theAnnals of Family Medicine, Chang and her colleagues wanted to find out, so they used recent data from about 9,500 adults enrolled in the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey (NHANES), a nationally representative sample of what Americans are eating. The data also included information about how hydrated they were, measured by the concentration of people’s urine.

How to Eat More Vegetables and Less Meat in 3 Weeks

Go more veggie! Switch to a flexitarian diet and cut down on how much meat you consume in just three weeks with our easy plan.


Cutting down on animal protein does more than slash calories—it lowers your cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as your risks of heart diseasediabetes, and cancer. The vegetables, legumes, and whole grains that will replace the meat help shield you from developing these chronic diseases, too. “Plants are nature’s pharmacy,” says Kate Geagan, RD, author of Go Green Get Lean ($5, amazon.com). “They’re brimming with protective nutrients and antioxidants that you just can’t get from animals.” You don’t have to go full vegetarian—our plan ups your plant protein without depriving you of that Saturday-night steak.

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells

Skin, the body’s largest organ, constantly sloughs off dead cells. This gives way to new, living cells that move up from the lower layers. This continual renewal keeps the skin looking younger, smoother and more radiant.
With age, this natural skin cycle slows down, which can result in an accumulation of dead skin cells on the outer skin layer.
This buildup makes your skin appear dull and darker, and leads to blemishes and more fine lines.

  • This is really good with grilled chicken breasts
  • What we end up doing a lot for family parties is we grill both chicken tenders and chicken thighs after we marinade the meat. While it’s grilling, we cook the veggies in the oven so we can cook lots at a time and not have to watch them so much. We just put them on a 9×13 pan or cookie sheet, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt.

The real reason Angelina and Brad are getting a divorce

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt broke hearts the world over when Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19, 2016. The couple have been together 12 years, though only married for two, and share six children.

Jolie wasn't messing around with the split, hiring celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to rep her—the same lawyer who represented Johnny Depp in his ugly divorce from Amber Heard. This means it's serious.

Hair Food

A healthy diet grows healthier hair.

Hair growth is affected by many factors, including genetics, age, medications, diseases, and yes, your diet. Like your nails, hair requires a nutrient-rich supply of blood to its follicles. A very low-calorie diet could slow its growth and even cause hair loss. But don't be alarmed by occasional fallout―most of us lose 50 to 100 strands a day. (However, if your hair loss seems excessive, consult a dermatologist.)

10 Blow-Dryer Mistakes You Might be Making

Want a salon-worthy blowout every day? Avoid these 10 blow-drying faux pas.

Your hair is too wet.

Believe it or not, your hair should already be 80% dry before you whip out your round brush and start your blowout. Trying to style before that point, will take twice as long to do and put twice as much damage on your hair. To reduce heat exposure as much as possible, start by thoroughly towel drying. If you have the luxury of extra time, let it air dry. If not, use your hair dryer and fingers to remove excess water from hair. No need to get the dryer too close to your hair here—remember, you aren’t trying to make it behave just yet; you’re trying to stop the dripping.

7 reasons your hair could be thinning

Seeing more and more strands swirling down the drain? Here's what might be up…

1. YOU'RE STRESSING OUT

Whether it's physical or emotional, stress can have an enormous impact on where your body sends it resources to – and when you're really overwhelmed, your scalp is pretty low down on the list of priorities. Stress that affects your sleep patterns, appetite, or upsets the balance of your hormones is likely to be affecting your thinning hair – and the catch? The loss of hair ends up stressing you out a million times more. Find stress-busting techniques that work for you – anything from mindfulness or therapy to a super hot bath and a Netflix binge – and do your best to address problems before they feel out of control. The better you feel in yourself, the easier your hair will find it to restore itself.
