Strengthen your Friendship with your Pet DogThere is a long old saying that a dog is a man’s best friend. And, this statement probably every dog on earth has been able to live up to it. However, to ensure that your dog manages to become your best friend, there are certain things that even you need to work on. The major requirements are providing a good diet, a healthy regime and exercising daily. Training the dog with appropriate behaviors is also imperative to make your pet well behaved. Dogs generally have this instinct of chasing around, digging on the ground, running in herds and barking unnecessarily. And, it is the onus of the master to free their pets from such habits and learn to behave appropriately.

The first and foremost important thing in taking care of your pet requires patience, hard working and commitment. You have to work on improving the well being of your dog from all possible dimensions and providing it in the best possible manner.

At 40, still look fabulous & have fun!

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Was returning from work on the underground when I happened to eavesdrop on a conversation between two women. Yeah, yeah, I know eavesdropping is just pathetic but I couldn’t help. Was an interesting conversation plus I had no other choice except read my boring book all over or listen to these two. The conversation was about this common friend who had put on a ton of weight once she hit 40 and these two were going on blabbering how it was their turns next. Being someone who closely follows nutrition, let me tell you ladies something, there is nothing wrong in hitting 40 and with the right diet and exercise you can in fact tone down and look even better than ever before. Let me give you a couple of tips for maintaining your figure and keeping that lively 20s look all through your 40s.

First of all, admit that you are 40. Yeah, seriously admitting that your body is 40 years old and that it is not what it used to be when you were 20 is the first step. When you reach 40, your lifestyle would have dramatically changed compared to previous years and if you keep eating like you were 20, you are obviously going to plump up. If you required 2000 calories a day when you were 20, you only need about 300 calories when you are 40. So that means lots of calories just waiting to be fat which brings me to my first point. Reduce calories! Try to reduce the calories that you intake during the course of the day. Include more fruits, vegetables and if you really really really have to snack, always go for non-fat snacks or better yet, snack on fruits.

Next comes stress. Contrary to common notion, stress cannot make you thinner but can actually get you fatter! Yeah, its true! Your 40s life would be full of stress with your kids, spouse, job, home making but amidst all of that you have to find time to reduce stress and take care of your body. Stress can make you crave food like never before which in turn becomes Stress Fat. Stress can also lead you on a road to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other ailments you don’t even want to know the names of. Just have some time to yourself and keep stress in check.

Finally Exercise. If you have been exercising and you just hit 40, exercise more. Just because you are older doesn’t mean you have to reduce your exercise regime and lay off. According to studies, a 40 year old woman should exercise for at least 45 minutes, six days a week. Cycling, walking, jogging all are fine options if you can find the time that is. Don’t think of turning 40 as going to war with your body. This just another phase and with a little bit of work, could be the most beautiful phase yet. Stay fit, stay beautiful.
