Worse, they go back to their unhealthy eating habits eventually.

Therefore, instead of keep thinking of what you should not eat, think about what you should eat. One of the easier things to start with is to eat more fruits and vegetables. Be adventurous, try fruits or veggies you have eaten before. Consider adding fresh fruit to your plain yogurt. (more…)

When it is Monday, supposedly, we should be happy. Shops are back to business, banks are opened, government offices will function. But, with the disrupted sleep on Sunday night, Monday blues feeling kick in. Starting the week with heavy head is no fun. It is common to hear colleagues asking for sick leave on Monday.
