1) Increasing Water Intake - You need to take in enough water for general health, toxin elimination through urination, and proper kidney and liver function. Water is essential for natural body detoxification. Your skin is 90% water. Water hydrates, revitalizes, detoxifies, and oxygenates your skin. Drink 2 liters of filtered water each day, the water will not only help you stay radiant and in shape but it will also help your brain work better.


2) Increasing Amino Acid Intake - Food rich in amino acids improve your body's HGH (Human Growth Hormone) production. HGH is the anti-aging hormone found in your body, which helps you to naturally retain a more youthful appearance. Foods rich in amino acids include chicken, fish, beans, nuts, and milk.

3) Increasing Fruit and Vegetable Intake - Fresh green leafy vegetables and fruits such as bananas, apricots, carrots, spinach, tomatoes are simple anti-aging foods. They are high in fiber and nutrients that sustain metabolism levels necessary for good skin, healthy hair and pliant nails.

4) Increasing Vitamin A Intake - Vitamin A is a potent anti-oxidant essential for good skin and healthy scalp. It is required for development and maintenance of the epithelial cells in the mucus membranes and in your skin. It is also important in the formation of bone and teeth, storage of fat, and the synthesis of protein and glycogen. A daily dosage of 800 mcg is recommended. Foods rich in Vitamin A include carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, kale, cantaloupe, apricots, peaches, papayas, mangos, milk, eggs, and liver.

5) Increasing Vitamin C Intake - Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is required in the synthesis of collagen in connective tissue, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, carnitine, conversion of cholesterol to bile acids, and enhancement of iron bioavailability. Ascorbic acid is a great antioxidant that helps shield your body against pollutants attacking your skin and scalp. It also promotes healthy cell development, proper calcium absorption, normal tissue growth, and repair like healing of wounds and burns. A daily dosage of 90 mg is recommended. Good sources of Vitamin C are citrus fruits like oranges, pineapple, tomatoes, potatoes, and dark green vegetables.

6) Increasing Vitamin E Intake - This vitamin helps to enhance scalp circulation and skin conditioning. It helps the skin look younger by promoting healing and reducing the risk of scar tissue formation. A daily dosage of 450 IU is recommended. Foods rich in Vitamin E are soy beans, nuts, dried beans, and green leafy vegetables.

7) Increasing Biotin Intake - Biotin (a type of Vitamin B) helps prevent hair loss and graying. It supports the keratin formation needed for strong hair strands. Biotin also nourishes your skin, sweat glands, nerve tissue, and bone marrow, and assists with reduction of muscle pain. A daily dosage of 0.3 mg is recommended. Whole grains, liver, rice, milk and egg yolks are rich in Biotin.

8) Increasing Iodine Intake - Iodine support proper Thyroid function and production of hormones (such as thyroxine, thyroxin) that regulate the conversion of fat to energy (stabilizing your body weight) and cholesterol levels while maintaining optimal bone, skin, hair, and nail health. A daily dosage of 150 micrograms per day. Iodine is found in eggs, milk, seafood, kelp, and asparagus.

9) Exercising Regularly - Exercise has important benefits for your skin. It increases circulation, delivery of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells, and removal of potentially damaging toxins. These benefits engender ideal collagen production necessary to keep wrinkles at bay. Exercise also increases sweating which unclogs pores and mediates the production of testosterone-related hormones that might trigger acne and androgenic hair loss. Add at least three 30 to 60 minute exercise sessions to your weekly beauty routine to infuse skin cells with oxygen. Stretching should be included as it tones and conditions your muscles. Skin attached to these muscles becomes firm and lustrous.


10) Getting Enough Sleep - Sleep is essential for skin health and overall wellness. If you are sleep deprived, you will look older and tired due to sagging eyelids and bags. Proper amount of sleep allows your body to rejuvenate overnight. When you sleep, your body rests and restores its energy levels. Consistently good sleep helps you cope with stress, solve problems, and recover from illness, and helps ensure long-term physical and mental well-being. The recommended average amount of sleep per day is 8 hours.

Good sleep is essential to deep restorative sleep. Learn how you can avoid the common causes of sleep.

Experiment.

For most healthy adults, a minimum of 8 hours is required each night to function at their best.

1) Set a Schedule - Go to bed at a set time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this schedule may lead to insomnia. Avoid napping during the day. "Sleeping in" on weekends also makes it harder to wake up early on Monday morning because it re-sets your sleep cycles for a later awakening.

2) Exercise - Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise often helps people sleep, although a workout soon before bedtime may interfere with sleep. For maximum benefit, try to get your exercise about 5 to 6 hours before going to bed.

3) Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine, and Alcohol - Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, which acts as a stimulant and keeps you awake. Sources of caffeine include coffee (100-200 mg), soft drinks (50-75 mg), non-herbal teas (50-75 mg), chocolate, diet drugs, and some pain relievers. Smokers tend to sleep very lightly and often wake up in the early morning due to nicotine withdrawal. Alcohol robs people of deep sleep and REM sleep and keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep.

4) Avoid Using Sedatives - While you might fall asleep, the complete restorative sleep cycle will be not realized. You might awaken feeling unrefreshed, groggy, or hungover. Once you stop taking the sedatives, you might suffer withdrawal symptoms which will further interfere with attainment of natural sleep.

5) Drink Milk - Milk contains a substance called tryptophan. The body uses tryptophan to make serotonin, a chemical in the brain. Serotonin helps control sleep patterns, appetite, pain, and other functions. Milk does not contain enough tryptophan to change sleep patterns, but drinking a glass of milk before bed may help you relax.

6) Avoid Large Meals / Excessive Fluids - This might cause you to awaken due digestion problems or urination.

7) Relax before Bed - A warm bath, reading, or another relaxing routine (deep breathing, yoga, meditation) can make it easier to fall sleep. You can train yourself to associate certain restful activities with sleep and make them part of your bedtime ritual.

8) Don't Lie in Bed Awake - If you can't get to sleep, don't just lie in bed. Do something else, like reading, watching television, or listening to music, until you feel tired. The anxiety of being unable to fall asleep can actually contribute to insomnia. Don't expose yourself to content that is prone to increase anxiety - like the news.

9) Create a Sanctuary - Make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet. Use eye shades or earplugs if needed. Maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep or prevent you from falling asleep.

10) Minimize Snoring - Sleep on your side to minimize snoring and breathing problems.

11) Sleep until Sunlight - If possible, wake up with the sun, or use very bright lights in the morning. Sunlight helps the body's internal biological clock reset itself each day. Sleep experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.

Understanding the causes and risk factors of testicular cancer.

The cancer that develops in the testicles is called testicular cancer. In the United States, between 7,500 and 8,000 diagnoses of testicular cancer are made each year. Over his lifetime, a man's risk of testicular cancer is roughly 1 in 250 (0.4%).

Research has shown that it is most common among males aged 15–40 years. Testicular cancer has one of the highest cure rates of all cancers: in excess of 90 percent; essentially 100 percent if it has not metastasized. Even for the relatively few cases in which malignant cancer has spread widely, chemotherapy offers a cure rate of at least 85 percent today.

Causes & Risk Factors

The exact causes of testicular cancer are not known. However, studies have shown that several factors increase a man's chance of developing this disease. These include:

1. Undescended testicle (Cryptorchidism)
Testicles usually descend from the inside of the abdomen into the scrotum before a baby boy is born. If a testicle has not moved down when a male is born, then there is greater risk that he will develop testicular cancer later on. Surgery may be required to lower them.

2. Congenital abnormalities
Males who are born with abnormalities of the penis, kidneys, or testicles have higher risk of developing testicular cancer.

3. Inguinal hernia
Males who are born with hernia in the groin area have higher risk than those who don’t.
Hernia means "a rupture" which happens when tissues protrude through a structure, or a part of an organ protrudes through a muscle tissue or a membrane.

4. Having had testicular cancer
If a man has had testicular cancer, he is more likely to develop it in the other testicle as well.

5. Family history
A man who has a close relative, sibling, or father with testicular cancer is more likely to develop a testicular cancer.

6. Abnormal testicular development
Conditions like Klinefelter's syndrome, where the testicles do not develop normally, may increase a person's risks of developing testicular cancer.

7. Mumps orchitis
An uncommon complication of mumps in which one or both testicles become inflamed. This painful complication can also raise a male's risk of developing testicular cancer later on.

8. Race
Studies indicate that testicular cancer is more common among Caucasian males, compared to men of African or Asian descent. Highest rates are found in Scandinavia, Germany and New Zealand.

Male menopause, also called Andropause, refers to a gradual decline in a man's testosterone levels. Testosterone is the male sex hormone responsible for creating and releasing sperm, initiating sex drive, and providing muscular strength.



Male menopause is also often referred to as "mid-life crisis". Not all men will go through this condition but it is still unknown why those that will do. Hormone levels tend to peak around the ages of 15 to 18 in most males. During a man’s mid to late 20s, his hormone levels will begin to drop slowly. These hormone levels should remain at a healthy state. However, some men experience a significant drop in their testosterone levels by the time they are 40. By age 50, half of all men experience a significant reduction in testosterone levels, causing a variety of uncomfortable ailments.

Causes of Male Menopause

Male menopause can occur naturally with age in some men. More often than not, though, it is triggered by illness, depression, dementia, and obesity. Certain diseases that attack the heart and lungs also seem to affect the production of testosterone. Men who have had autoimmune diseases or cancer seem to be at an increased risk for low testosterone levels. Men at their 40s and 50s also start to develop testicular problems. These may also result in a decrease in the levels of testosterone produced.

Effects/Symptoms of male menopause



1. Drop in sex drive (libido)
Not only does the man have less interest in sex, he will also have sex less frequently. From an average of 3-4 times a week in his twenties, sexual frequency declines to once a week or so in his fifties to 1-2 times a month in his late seventies. A related symptom is that sex becomes less enjoyable for the man.

2. Fatigue, mental exertion
The amount of energy a man usually needs to go on for one whole day may have a slower pace in the event of male menopause. The same level of physical activities he had in the past may take more of his time now with considerably more effort.


3. Forgetfulness, decreased ability to remember and to concentrate
There is a noticeable change in the ability to remember in male menopause. It also becomes more difficult to focus, which ordinarily is one of men’s strengths.

4. Feelings of anger, anxiety, irritability and depression
Dealing with others on their actions or events that were once easily accepted may not be as easy as before.


5. Weight gain
Increase in body fat and body weight accompanied with loss of muscle mass is usually observed in male menopause. A male that is sedentary will lose about 10% of his muscle each decade.

6. Sleep difficulties
Sleep, especially uninterrupted deep sleep, is the time when the body repairs itself and rejuvenate before it gets ready for another bout through the next day.
One of the male menopause symptoms is having difficulty in falling asleep, not sleeping well and having a restless time during the last part of sleep before awakening. Not getting enough quality sleep over time can have serious health consequences.

7. Osteoporosis
Even though a male begins to lose bone mass considerably later in life than a woman on the average does, bone loss will happen and may be considered another symptom of male menopause. Women often begin losing bone mass as early as in their thirties, whereas bone loss begins later in life for a man.

8. Confusion, indecisiveness, declining self-confidence
Part of being a healthy male is the ability to solve problems, to be efficient, to be competent, to have power, and to achieve. A consequence of experiencing male menopause symptoms is the depletion of these crucial aspects of being a man.

If you notice your father, brother or partner behaving strangely, seek help so that they are able to understand this change better.

Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Causes of male infertility include low sperm motility, bad quality sperm, lack of semen, and low sperm count. Most cases of male infertility are due to low sperm count. Sperm count refers to the number of sperm in an ejaculate. Here is a list of conditions that may cause low sperm count in men.

1. Age
The effect of aging on male fertility is not clear, however, evidence is growing that it may be a factor. Fertilization rates are usually over 60% for men under 39 but for those over that age, the rates are lower, falling slightly over half.

2. Stress
Nearly any major physical or mental stress can temporarily reduce sperm count. The most common forms of stress affecting sperm count are:
1. Emotional Stress. Stress may interfere with the hormone GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) and reduce sperm count.
2. Sexual Issues. In less than 1% of men with infertility problems has proven that issues with sexual intercourse or technique does affect fertility.
3. Impotence, premature ejaculation, relationship troubles, psychological problems can contribute to infertility, although these conditions are usually treatable.
4. Lubricants used with condoms like spermicides and oils can affect fertility. Seek professional advice on what products are best for you and your partner.

3. Testicular Exposure to Overheating
Overheating (such as from high fever, saunas, and hot tubs) may temporarily lower sperm count. Work exposure to overheating may even impair fertility.

4. Substance Abuse
Cocaine or heavy marijuana intake can temporarily reduce the number and quality of sperm by as much as 50%. Sperm have receptors for certain compounds in marijuana that resemble natural substances which may impair the sperm’s ability to swim and penetrate the egg.

5. Smoking
Smoking impairs sperm count, sperm motility, reduces sperm lifespan, and may also cause genetic changes that affect the offspring. Additionally, studies found that men who smoke have lower sex drives and less frequent sex.

6. Malnutrition and Nutrient Deficiencies
Deficiencies in certain nutrients, such as vitamin C, selenium, zinc, and folate are also factors for low sperm count.

7. Obesity
Studies indicate that obesity is linked to low sperm count.
8. Bicycling

Bicycling has been linked to impotence in men. Pressure from the bike seat may damage blood vessels and nerves that are responsible for erections. Mountain biking, which involves riding on off-road terrain, exposes the perineum (the region between the scrotum and the anus) to more extreme shocks and vibrations and increases the risk for injuries to the scrotum and may lead to low sperm count.

9. Genetic Factors
Genetics is an important contributor to male infertility. Inherited disorders can genetically impair fertility.

10. Environmental Toxins
Over exposure to environmental toxins, chemicals, and infections can reduce sperm count either by direct effects on testicular function or on the hormone systemsl. Some chemicals that affect sperm production men are oxygen-free radicals, estrogen emulation pesticidal chemicals (DDT, aldrin, dieldrin, PCPs, dioxins, and furans), plastic softening chemicals like phthalates, and hydrocarbons. (ethylbenzene, benzene, toluene, and xylene)

11. Exposure to Heavy Metals
Chronic exposure to heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, or arsenic may affect sperm production. Trace amounts of these metals in semen seem to impair the function of enzymes contained in the acrosome, the membrane that covers the head of the sperm.

12. Radiation Treatment
Radiation treatments and x-rays affect any rapidly dividing cell, so cells that produce sperm are quite sensitive to radiation damage. Cells exposed to significant levels of radiation may take up to two years to resume normal sperm production, and, in severe circumstances, may never recover.

13. Low Semen Levels
A reduced amount of ejaculated semen (less than 0.5 milliliters per sample) may be caused by a structural abnormality in the tubes transporting the sperm.

14. Varicocele
A varicocele is a varicose vein in the cord that connects to the testicle. (A varicose vein is one that is abnormally enlarged and twisted.) Varicoceles are found in 15% to 20% of all men and in 25% to 40% of infertile men.

It is a rare claim. However, researches say that life can be extended and remain fit throughout old age - just by a change of diet.

Eversince US started eating more carbohydrate and less fat in the 1970s, the incidence of diabetes and obesity has exploded.

The extra glucose in our diet (remember: all carbs break down into sugar in our bodies) causes extra insulin which could affect our genes.



Cut or reduce your starch like potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta. Opt for salads and low fat organic dressings or olive oil, add nuts and load on the greens along with cheese, (skinless) chicken and eggs. Load on your fruits as well. Stay away from processed foods and sweets.





Now, don't we all strive to live longer and healthier?

Until then, stay healthy.

Hi everyone

As many of you who may have already knew, we love participating in race events. Yes, we normally participate every 2 months, as this would give us ample time to prepare the event. Plus, most of us prefers this arrangement! :P

Last Sunday, it was the Run for Hope race. Flag off was at 8am at East Coast Park, we were there early to ensure our bags were deposited and we were at the starting line in time with the hundreds of other fun runners, although it has been rumoured that it may have been at least thousand of participants. Wow.

We have never participated for a 4km run, so we were rather anxious. Plus, the massive crowd was a little intimidating. It was definitely longer than the previous races we have joined, but because of the atmosphere, it was an awesome one! We may not complete the race in our desired timing, but knowing we are part of the event, was a satisfaction itself. And this satisfaction cannot draw enough words to describe the feeling.

We truly enjoyed ourselves.

We believe this is the last run for this year, next run should be in January or February 2011, depending on the race events.

Have you joined a race lately? Join one, get your friends and families to do it together. You will be amazed and probably get hooked on it.

Until then, stay healthy.

The reason why women wear make up is simply to enhance our looks, an improvement, to look better.



Some women's handbags are overflowing with all the latest products but research suggests that applying make up on a daily basis could actually be bad for your health.

Research has proven that women are flooding their bodies with as much as 2kg of chemicals in a year! A study has shown that that some women use more than 20 different beauty products a day while 90% of them apply make up beyond its expiration date.

Doctors has related most of the problems women face these days to the make up they use.

So, are women religiously checking on their make up as regularly as they should, keeping in mind that this or that needs to be replaced by a certain date?


It is highly unlikely. Most women has this standard mentally, to only get new ones when the old one is done. They would only get something extraordinarily new if it is the latest in the market, other than that, they would use the regular ones till they are done using them.


This is the mentally women needs to digest and take a step back.

Hold your horses ladies!

> Regularly check your make up(yes every single one of them) at the end of every month.

> If you are having a hard time separating with your half used mascara bottle despite it being way over expiration date, think of all the bacteria it has probably collected and how it will affect and eventually destroy your eye.

> Stop sharing. Yes, sharing is caring but when one of you gets an eye infection, no one really wants to share that, do you? Take care of your make up bag, and be firm when your friends start pleading with you to share. Better be safe than sorry.

> If you are that type of woman who loves her make up and has to wear them each time you head out no matter what the world says about it being bad, suggest that you pamper your skin, go for a facial cleansing, wear facial mask twice every week, purchase masks according to your skin.

> Load on the water, make sure you really have your 8 glasses a day in the bag. And while you are on it, load on your greens as well.

> Take a herbal supplement to aid you with your radiance. Nothing wrong with a 100% plant extracts pill right? Ensure you read up about the products before consuming. You can get a lot of things off the web, genuine testimonials or recommendations from all over the world. Consult a doctor if necessary.

When will you know enough is enough? How will you be able to differentiate the difference between the truth and lies?


1. "Shed 15kg in 15 days." This is untrue. Permanent weight loss requires lifestyle change, not a quick fix.

2. Fat is BAD. Yes we all know some fats is bad an unhealthy but there are some that are good which is also vital for your health, like essential fatty acids.

3. Carbs is BAD. There are a great range of carbohydrates that we need to distingulshlThere are unhealthy carbs such as white sugar and complex carbs such as vegetables and whole grains which provides vital vitamins and fiber to aid digestion.

4. Starve. Wrong, wrong, wrong! Starving deprives the body of the nutrients it needs for life and can lead to serious illness. Plus you lose muscle mass, not fat. Even if you do a lose a couple of kgs, you will gain them right back as soon as you raid the refrigerator again.

5. No food after 8pm. It is not what time you eat, it is WHAT you eat. It is believe that Europeans eat as late as 10 o'clock but they are half the size of Americans.

6. Diet sodas promotes weight loss. Think again. There has not been a single study to prove indeed that diet sodas help with weight loss. In fact, it may even worsen.

7. Take the pill. You cannot replace healthy eating and exercise with a pill. Pills are not a new thing, they have been tried for decades with horrible side effects.



Until then, stay heatlhy.

How to increase Sperm Count Naturally


Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention.

Women who are fertile experience a natural period of fertility before and during ovulation, and they are naturally infertile during the rest of the menstrual cycle. Fertility awareness methods are used to discern when these changes occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature.

Define Sperm count

It is the number of sperm in an ejaculate; the sperm count is used as an indicator of male fertility.


How it decreases

The leading cause of male infertility is low sperm count. Others may be low sperm motility, bad quality sperm or lack of semen. Generally, most cases of male infertility are due to low sperm count. There are many biologic and environmental factors that can lead to low sperm count. Here is a list if conditions that may cause low sperm count in men.

Age
The effect of aging on male fertility is not clear, however, evidence is growing that it may be a factor. Fertilization rates are usually over 60% for men under 39 but for those over that age, the rates are lower, falling slightly over half.

Temporary and Lifestyle Causes of Low Sperm Count
Nearly any major physical or mental stress can temporarily reduce sperm count. Here are the common conditions –

1. Emotional Stress. Stress may interfere with the hormone GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) and reduce sperm counts.

2. Sexual Issues. In less than 1% of males with infertility problems has proven that issues with sexual intercourse or technique does affect fertility.

3. Impotence, premature ejaculation, or psychologic or relationship problems can contribute to infertility, although these conditions are usually very treatable.

4. Lubricants used with condoms, including spermicides, oils, and Vaseline, can affect fertility. Seek professional advice on what products are best for you and your partner.

Testicular Exposure to Overheating
Overheating (such as from high fever, saunas, and hot tubs) may temporarily lower sperm count. Work exposure to overheating may even impair fertility.

Substance Abuse
Cocaine or heavy marijuana intake appears to temporarily reduce the number and quality of sperm by as much as 50%. Sperm actually have receptors for certain compounds in marijuana that resemble natural substances and which may impair the sperm’s ability to swim and may also cause disability to penetrate the egg.

Smoking
Smoking impairs sperm count, sperm motility, reduces sperm lifespan, and may cause genetic changes that affect the offspring. Additionally, a 1999 study found that men who smoke have lower sex drives and less frequent sex.

Malnutrition and Nutrient Deficiencies
Deficiencies in certain nutrients, such as vitamin C, selenium, zinc, and folate, may be particular risk factors for low sperm count in such cases.

Obesity
Some studies, but not all, have linked obesity and low sperm count.

Bicycling
Bicycling has been linked to impotence in men and also may affect the sperm count. Pressure from the bike seat may damage blood vessels and nerves that are responsible for erections. Mountain biking, which involves riding on off-road terrain, exposes the perineum (the region between the scrotum and the anus) to more extreme shocks and vibrations and increases the risk for injuries to the scrotum.

Genetic Factors
Genetic factors are proving to be important contributors to male infertility. Such genetic conditions may be inherited or caused by environmental assaults. Inherited disorders can genetically impair fertility.


Environmental Assaults
Over exposure to environmental assaults (toxins, chemicals, and infections) can reduce sperm count either by direct effects on testicular function or on the hormone systems, although the extent of the effect and specific environmental attacks involved are often controversial. Some chemicals that affect sperm production men are: Oxygen-Free Radicals, Estrogen emulation pesticidal chemicals (DDT, aldrin, dieldrin, PCPs, dioxins, and furans), plastic softening chemicals like Phthalates, hydrocarbons (ethylbenzene, benzene, toluene, and xylene)

Exposure to Heavy Metals
Chronic exposure to heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, or arsenic may affect sperm production and most often cause a reduced production in otherwise healthy males. Trace amounts of these metals in semen seem to impair the function of enzymes contained in the acrosome, the membrane that covers the head of the sperm.

Radiation Treatment
Radiation treatments and x-rays affect any rapidly dividing cell, so cells that produce sperm are quite sensitive to radiation damage. Cells exposed to significant levels of radiation may take up to two years to resume normal sperm production, and, in severe circumstances, may never recover.

Low Semen Levels
A reduced amount of ejaculated semen (less than 0.5 milliliters per sample) may be caused by a structural abnormality in the tubes transporting the sperm.

Varicocele
A varicocele is a varicose vein in the cord that connects to the testicle. (A varicose vein is one that is abnormally enlarged and twisted.) Varicoceles are found in 15% to 20% of all men and in 25% to 40% of infertile men. It is not clear how they affect fertility, or even if they do at all.

Suicide and Depression


Although most people who are depressed do not kill themselves, untreated depression can increase the risk of possible suicide. It is not uncommon for depressed individuals to have thoughts about suicide.

Risk Factors

> The strongest risk factors for attempted suicide in adults are depression, alcohol abuse, cocaine use, and separation or divorce.
> The strongest risk factors for attempted suicide in youth are depression, alcohol or other drug use disorder, and aggressive or disruptive behaviors.
> Family history of mental or substance abuse disorder
> Family history of suicide
> Family violence, including physical or sexual abuse
> Prior suicide attempt
> Adverse life events
> One or more diagnosable mental (e.g., major depression) or substance abuse disorders



Seek Help

Be attentive to the people you are close with, or around you often. If you notice the slightest change in their behaviour, and they began making such remarks on suicide, it is extremely important to take this seriously. This is a hint from them to you. Most people would brush this off thinking it is just silly thinking, and the regret afterwards wishing they had done something when they were hinted. It is better to be safe than sorry.



They need to be reminded that effective treatment is available, and that many people can very easily begin to experience relief from depressive symptoms.

Understanding your body, mind and soul.


Research shows that optimistic salespeople outsell their competition by 37%. Optimists live, on average, two years longer than pessimists. The body’s ability to fight diseases – such as cancer and AIDS – is unmistakably linked to a patient’s level of positive thinking. And businesses thrive when people can “see” tomorrow as better than today because they are making it better.

Leaders who set a positive tone, praise progress, and do not waste their efforts assigning blame when they can be assigning solutions, will find team members eager to tackle even the toughest challenges.

Tackle Pessimism with Optimism – Mind over Matters

"When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it." - Theodore Roosevelt

"A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier."
– Unknown

How does one stays optimistic in times of difficulties?

How does one switch the mind to counteract the negativity before it gets to him and eventually bringing him down?


Being optimistic is easier said than done. Undeniably, we need optimism to remain sane. Negativity can tarnish even your wildest imagination, your greatest ambitions, and your strength or will to go on, get out there and do something you want.

Optimism is the reason for your every achievement. It simply means you don’t give up.

How do you tackle them?

1) Speak with a close friend or family, or your colleague. Open your feelings to them.
2) Get to the root of the issue. Why exactly are you feeling negative? What has happened that has made you react that way? Ask yourself, be honest and open up. The more you bottled up, the more unhappy you will be, the lesser strength you will have to tackle your pessimism.
3) Write down your daily feelings in a diary; be expressive, if you find it uncomfortable to open up to someone.
4) Listen to nice soothing songs.
5) Read self help books. They help.
6) Take up a new hobby, can be totally out of your element. E.g cooking, yoga
You may not achieve to expected standard but knowing you have tried is an achievement itself.
7) Take a break from work, go on a holiday.
8) Reserve a massage appointment.


What happens when this negative energy continues to linger on?

1) Seek professional help, see a therapist.
2) Avoid drugs, alcohol and cigarettes
Pessimism may be the first hurdle to depression.
