It's been proven that taking regular holidays is a stress busting health booster, but it seems the way we travel to those holidays isn't quite as healthy. In fact, flying can be downright bad for you. It's already been proven by the Association of Flight Attendants that people who have careers in the aviation industry are more at risk of dying from cancer, and now it's become apparent why. According to physicist Robert Parish, when you reach the average cruising altitude of 39,000 feet in a plane you are subject to 64 times more radiation than at sea level due to cosmic rays, which over time can seriously affect your well being.
3. Nasty co-workers
You know that person who you can't stand at work? As if things weren't bad enough already, they're actually shortening your lifespan.
Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that a person's colleagues have a significant bearing on their wellbeing, with friendly and supportive co-workers leading to lowered stress levels and a reduction in blood pressure and cholesterol.
People at work who cause arguments and don't share the workload equally have the opposite effect, causing stress and subsequently a higher risk of dying amongst their colleagues. These negative effects were most obvious in subjects between the ages of 38 and 43, so if you fall into that bracket it might be time to bury the hatchet with your work enemies.
Retiring is often the light at the end of the tunnel for stressed workers, especially for those who have saved all of their life so that they can do it earlier. Sadly, that lifetime of financial sacrifice is leading to a shorter lifespan according to research carried out by Shell Health Services. The study discovered that people who retire at 55 on average died younger than those who waited until they were 65.
John Rother, chief lobbyist of the American Association of Retired Persons, explained it rather bluntly by saying "you use it or you lose it" - by retiring early, your body misses out on its daily dose of activity and you gradually become more unhealthy.
5. Not drinking alcohol
We're always told to cut back on how much alcohol we drink, and rightly so - excessive alcohol consumption can severely damage your health. However, go to the opposite end of the drinking spectrum and you could be in even more trouble than heavy drinkers. A study at the University of Texas found that non-drinkers have a lower life expectancy than people who drink a moderate amount, and in some cases even lower than heavy drinkers. This is partly due to missing out on the health benefits associated with alcohol. Alcohol (in sensible amounts) helps to protect against heart disease, and decreases the likelihood of Alzheimer's and dementia through improved neuron function in the brain.
6. Sleeping too much
Getting enough sleep is important when it comes to good health, so surely the more shut-eye you get the better, right? Wrong. Consistently going too far over the recommended eight hours can negatively affect your health according to a study conducted by RealAge.com. The findings showed that participants who slept for more than nine and a half hours a night suffered from a staggering 60 per cent increase in heart disease, and a higher mortality rate when compared to people who stick to the recommended amount. As well as heart disease, over-sleeping has also been linked with a whole host of health issues, including obesity, diabetes, headaches and depression.
7. Not having sex
Sex is good for you. Is anyone still here? For those of you who haven't frantically run off to tell a significant other the good news, we'll explain why. The British Medical Journal conducted a sex survey and found that men who didn't have sex at least once a month experienced twice the mortality rate of those who were getting lucky once a week. It's not hard to see why this is the case - having sex burns kilojoules, lowers blood pressure, boosts the immune system, and much, much more. A study at Duke University also backed this up, finding that women who had enjoyable sex lives lived eight years longer than those who didn't.

Having a chance to view the above cartoon, I fully agree with those facts laid.
If you are one couple who isn't happy with each other at the moment, then it is high time both of you who should access your level of intelligence. Are you the males who are lower ranking than your partners or are you the females who are highly more successful than your man?? Problems right!!!

It had been quite sometime that I wrote on my blog, and many of my keen readers were concerned about my well being. Tell you my friends, I'm always on top of the world. Just that lately I am extremely busy, never had I been so fully occupied in my entire life. They said when you grow older, you would be less busy and more time for yourself. Not me! I think I'm still growing up, rather than growing old. Growing up is by choice, while growing old is mandatory.
Believe me, this happened recently to me. In one of my dream world's night, I received a call from A Boss of The Universal G.O.D. Corporation. Out of the million candidates, HE had chosen me to be a recognised Rep for his corporation. The qualified candidate has to have experienced the "Good & Bad" of our earthly lives. A simple person, not rich, not poor either but have all the fun and humour in him. His heart has to be pure and sincere, and the mind must be willing to give unconditionally. It took HIM sixty five years to endorse my qualification.
On the phone, The Boss who spoke so sweet and blissful, melted my heart when HE gracefully announced my appointment with The Universal G.O.D Corporation. As a Rep I am allowed to sell one of their unique product. There is no basic or any financial return of any kind while selling this product but I know the benefits will be tremendous. The product is L.O.V.E. and I have to sell it without discrimination and prejudice, no colour bar, race or faith.
Lately as A Rep for the corporation, I had been moving around acting as counsellor, preacher of love, fun maker, horoscope and palm reader, graphologist, motivator and guest speaker, fund raiser, fate healer, match maker, job seeker for others, entertainer and actor. Most important of all as a father or brother to whoever I met, when I could sell my miracle product, L.O.V.E. to them.
How I wish one day is 48 hours and not 24.
BTW.... If you need my product, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm just one call or email away. Forgotten to tell you guys, my product is free.

Sometimes the greatness of a man can be measured not so much by what he does, as by what he doesn't do.

Is worth sharing, read on please.....
At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky. The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but ...it landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue. In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.
The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behaviour of the cockroach on his shirt. When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.
Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behaviour? If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed? He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.
It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.
I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it's my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.
It's not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it's my reaction to the problem that creates chaos in my life.
Lessons learnt from the story:
I understood, I should not react in life.
I should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of, and likely to be just right to save a situation from going out of hand, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid making decisions in anger, anxiety, stress or in a hurry.

Once a pebble has been selected, the male penguins presents the pebble as a token of love to the chosen female and if she takes the pebble and places it on her nest then she has accepted that penguin as her mate.

THE TRICK: FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS: This is bizarre - after you find the guy - it's so obvious. Once you find him - it's embarrassing, and you think, 'Why didn't I see him immediately?'
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein. If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!
