Does Bingo Play make you Live Longer?

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Does Bingo Play make you Live Longer?Ever heard of the above mentioned? Playing bingo, one could live longer! Is this really possible?

And, if yes, then how! Although, the question does sound a little peculiar but studies have actually proven it that playing bingo can actually lead to longevity and good health. Few months ago, there was this story that made to headline about a 105 year old woman addicted to playing bingo. And, it seems at the age of 105 she still continued to put forth a bubbly personality. People wondered the reasons for this wonderful attitude put forth by the lady and most of them concluded it to playing bingo that probably also helped longevity. However, there are no scientific evidences that prove the above but there are quite a few anecdotal evidences.

Another player adding to the list of long lived bingo fanatics is Mark Cwiek. She too is a big fan of bingo players and indulges in the fun of playing these games for at least an hour that is between 3PM and 4PM. Passing her time with bingo play is one of the activities she shares with 40 other residents of her care home. There was a similar report in the year 2009 where in Anne Webster from Shipley, Yorkshire gained prominence for her addiction to online bingo. She too was 102 years old. Joseph Frey Perry, 101 year old was also known for being an avid bingo player before she died.

Well, the aforementioned does hint on the fact that there is a bit of connectivity between playing bingo and a human being’s life span. The two are directly proportional to each other. The latter automatically increases with the increase in the former. Even before, there have been discussions about the benefits of bingo play and a quite a number of it have been mentioned about the same.

The major component is the aspect of socialization associated with the games that adds to the health benefits and that in turn with longevity. Socially active people tend to live longer. Mixing around with other people automatically adds a lot of positivity by making a person happy and alert. On the other hand, being alone makes a person depressed. Being socially connected with people around makes a person stay happy as the brain is in constant active mode. Something similar happens when playing bingo too. Playing bingo lets the brain utilize sight, hearing and hand and eye co-ordination too. With multitude of things in constant action will automatically lead to mental alertness. Being mentally alert delays the onset of Alzheimer’s symptoms.

Bingo games anyways originated as a passion of the old players. Although, the game does not require physical exertion but does require a lot of focus and concentration and that in turn benefits our brains. Keeping the brain healthy is very important to live a healthy and long life. And, bingo provides benefits in four major categories: mental, social, physical and psychological. And, certainly not missing out to mention about the fun element – the most important of all! Therefore, play bingo and live longer !

loveThe foremost and most important thing in life is to love oneself. No matter if life is throwing lemons at you, don’t forget to take time for yourself and know that you are worth everything in this world. Know that you are important and you shall come out of it, whatever the situation be. Nothing, absolutely nothing can stop you if you believe in yourself.

Here are some general problems and their solutions for you:

Problem: You don’t like how you are

Solution: The beauty of lies in the fact that each one of us is different. It would have been utterly boring if all of us looked and thought alike. If you have a problem with yourself, kill it, face it and come out of it – don’t ever run from it. If it’s about physical appearance, make it your strength, make your uniqueness stand out.

Problem: She looks so much better

Solution: She might be pretty but then there are so many others who are pretty as well but none of them can be you. Accept your shortcomings and hone your strengths. Make your charisma all empowering.

Problem: Nothing is going right.

Solution: This is one of the most common problems with almost everyone because all of us think we are the most troubled people on earth.  Life is a journey and will always have some highs and lows. It’s the lows, which give us strength enough and realise what good is. Enjoy the journey.

Problem: He doesn’t love me as much as I love him

Solution: Always remember, “Love brings you face to face with yourself. It’s impossible to love others if you don’t love yourself.” You have to love yourself and he will be all into you.

Let’s go garden this summer

Monday, August 12th, 2013

fresh-home-with-an-impressive-gardenSummers never last long in Britain and when they do; you should make the most out of it. Imagine a sunny day, you and him with a glass of wine sitting outdoors. It kind of sets the scene for a perfect movie romance just about to begin.

Hang on; we’ve kind of digressed from the topic, which is making the best use of your garden, balcony this season. Don’t let your outdoor space lie alone, nurture it and make it as stylish as possible. Here are some tips to help you do just that.

Balcony Garden

Many of us live in cities, where the maximum we can afford is a balcony. Worry not! You can transform this space as per your aesthetics and give it a feel of a garden. Add a little bistro table and chairs to create the perfect summer dining area.

If you are really limited with room, try adding a few decorative accessories such LED lanterns, bunting or wind chimes to add a touch of personality and design flair to the space.

Small Garden

Just pit a simple bench combined with colourful cushions and see how this small little change will entirely transform the setting into a comfortable lounge to spend a sunny afternoon in.

If you are a keen gardener, opt for a style which comes with built in storage so you can limit clutter and keep all your Garden tools nice and tidy. Also, since the garden is small, DO NOT overdo it with accessories. Small is just wonderful by itself.

Large Garden

If you are lucky enough to have a large garden, take advantage of the space you have available by creating an outside space which you can relax in at all hours of the day. Wicker style furniture is fab as it allows you to fill the space without it feeling too heavy.

Adding unusual pieces like water features and garden ornaments will give your garden a very different look.

Just in case you have no garden at all, a small pull along hamper is perfect to help easily transport all your summer goodies to the nearest park.
