11 Things That Really Matter in a Relationship apart from Communication

No comments:

When starting a relationship, it's important to have great communication skills, as it may help you work together in sustaining a long-term relationship. However, communication isn't everything, and there are factors that go into relationships that can determine whether it will be successful or not.

A relationship can bring about conflict, emotions, and desires, and often those are met or addressed through communication; however, being able to communicate can't solve all problems. Sometimes that bond or chemistry isn't there, and other times, even through communication, the message isn't strong enough to create change or bring results. 

Here are 11 things that matter in relationships that have nothing to do with communication. For optimal success, focus on implementing these factors, as well as communication, into your relationships.

1. Similar Interests

Find a partner who has similar interests to you. While no two people should be identical, and differences can help balance out a relationship, a mutual love for being active, seeing movies, go out to restaurants, or traveling, for instance, could be something that can bring fun and romance to a relationship.

2. Sex

Sex is definitely not everything, but there should be a physical attraction between you and your partner. If there's no spark, or you find that you are no longer interested (or your partner is no longer interested), in making time for romance, it could signal that there's a problem in your relationship.

3. Similar Values

You and your partner should have similar values. For instance, do you both want kids? Do you have the same political views? Do you have some overlapping priorities in life (family, career, travel, exercise, etc.)? These are some things to discuss, especially as a relationship lasts longer.

4. A Healthy Relationship With Parents

Having parents too involved in an intimate relationship can cause tension and imbalance, and can make your partner feel that you value your mom's or dad's opinion over his or hers. Thus, put your partner first, and make sure you have a good balance.

5. Kindness

Even if you can communicate and forgive countless times, kindness is a key factor in any relationship. It's important to be kind to whomever you're with, and if you notice that your partner is routinely being unkind, it might be wise to re-evaluate the relationship and figure out what type of person you should be with.

6. An Ability To Be Yourself

Being genuine and natural within a relationship is incredibly important, since if you can't be yourself with your partner, something's wrong. Ask yourself if you're putting on a front or can just laugh and feel free around your significant other.

7. Laughter

Lemmer emphasizes the importance of laughter in a relationship. Humor is fun and can really bond people together, Lemmer explains, and it also denotes a sense of being natural and goofy, which is a behavior that can signal feelings of acceptance and freedom. If there's not enough silly moments and humor, a relationship might feel cold or boring.

8. A Friendship

While not all relationships need to start with a friendship before becoming romantic, there should be a layer of friendship within any romantic bond, as friendship means that you like each other and each other's company. If you find that your significant other resembles a best friend, then it might mean that your relationship can be sustainable long-term.

9. Trust

According to Preston Ni M.S.B.A. over interview with Psychology Today, having trust in a relationship is incredibly important, and it lays the foundation for how it could evolve. If you don't trust your partner, that never-ending fear and resentment might be prevalent, and this could cause a lot of tension and distance moving forward.

10. Love

While new relationships might not have love yet, there should be a possibility to find love within a successful and nurturing relationship. Partnerships that are based off of love are usually more able to overcome conflict, even if communication is tricky at times. There's a time to work through things, especially if there's a real love there.

11. Safety

If you feel safe with your partner, as in he or she will protect you from dangerous situations, as well as be respectful of your body, then there's a greater chance for the relationship to evolve. If you don't feel respected by your partner, or you feel like he or she has a bad temper, has done things that question inhibitions, or isn't on the lookout as a protector when out late at night, then you might want to find someone you feel in better hands with.

While communication is one of the most important factors in any relationship, looking at these other areas, as well as thinking of your level of happiness, will shed better light on where you and your partner stand and whether or not you should progress forward together.

Throw Away Your Glasses! These 16 exercises can improve your vision

No comments:

We all know that if we don’t use specific group of muscles for some time, they will weaken over time. For example, if someone hurt his leg and he uses a wheelchair for some time, his leg will become weaker and weaker. 

The same goes with your muscles around your eye. If you wear glasses and you don’t do exercises with your eyes, your vision will become weaker. The eye muscles need exercises as every other muscle in our body. 

You will need the following roles in the process of restoration of your vision: 

*It is recommended to close your eyes for a few minutes on every 2-3 hours and avoid hard pressure on them. 

*You will need to implement gymnastics for your eyes.   There are 16 exercises for your eye.(follow these lines with your eyes) 

*Don’t wear glasses 
*Massage specific spots everyday 

You can apply light pressure on your eyeball with the tips of your middle and index finger. Press lightly so you don’t feel pain. Then with your index finger press these points. 

*While walking outside look into distance 
*Consume carrot juices with few drops of olive oil regularly 
*Clean your eyes with warm water 
*Try not to use laptop or PC at least 2 hours before sleeping. 
*To establish your vision implement the Indian exercise Trataka. 

Trataka is a form of meditation where you have to focus at moderate distance concentrating at a specific point (candle light, black spot, small object) for strengthening of the eyesight, stimulating the third eye and developing focus.

First you will have to focus on some object or a symbol and stare at it continuously with paying attention on every thought and emotion. You will have to release them in order to have your mind focused on the symbol with pure thoughts. 

If tears start to come from your eyes, close them down and leave them to rest. The main point of Trataka is to stand as much as you can, before you have tears flowing from your eyes.

Tax sugary drinks to fight obesity, diabetes and other noncommunicable diseases, WHO urges governments

No comments:
The World Health Organisation on Tuesday has urged all countries to introduce a sugary drinks tax as an effective way of curbing the soaring rate of obesity and diabetes in the world, especially in children.  According to the report on “Fiscal Policies for Diet and Prevention of Noncommunicable Diseases” by WHO,
“We are now in a place where we can say there is enough evidence to move on this and we encourage countries to implement effective tax on sugar-sweetened beverages to prevent obesity,”
“Smart policies can help to turn the tides on this deadly epidemic, especially those aimed at reducing consumption ofsugary drinks, which is fuelling obesity rates,” former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, a WHO ambassador for noncommunicable diseases, said in a statement.
 A 20 percent price increase could reduce consumption of sweet drinks by the same proportion.
Drinking fewer calorific sweet drinks is the best way to curb excessive weight and prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, although fat and salt in processed foods are also at fault.
“This is tax on sugary drinks which is really by definition all types of beverages containing free sugars and this includes soft drinks, fruit drinks, sachet mixes, cordials, energy and sports drinks, flavoured milks, breakfast drinks, even 100 per cent fruit juices,” Waqanivalu said.
The global soft drink market is worth nearly $870 billion in annual sales. 2016 could be the year of the sugar tax, as several large nations consider levies on sweetened food and drinks to battle obesity and fatten government coffers.
“If governments tax products like sugary drinks, they can reduce suffering and save lives. They can also cut healthcare costs and increase revenues to invest in health services.”

Samsung Halts Galaxy Note 7, tells Consumers to Stop Using the device as replacement batteries explode

No comments:

Advertisements for the Galaxy Note7, which is being recalled.
Samsung Electronics has halted the production and distribution of Galazy Note 7 due to overheating batteries.  Even though Samsung initiated a worldwide recall and has been busy exchanging potentially dangerous Note 7 devices with replacement units, there is a growing number of incidents involving new and supposedly safe Note 7 devices bursting into flames.

The company has asked all telecom carriers and retailers that sell the Note 7 globally to stop sales and exchanges of the device pending investigation into the latest incidents. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission was investigating a total of five such incidents, two in Kentucky and one each in Minnesota, Virginia and Texas. Authorities haven’t confirmed that the incidents involve replacement versions of the Note 7.

Consumers with either an original or a replacement Note 7 should power down and stop using the device, said Samsung.

Samsung has attributed the battery problems to one of its battery suppliers. It hasn’t named the supplier, but people familiar with the matter say it is Samsung SDI Co., an affiliate of the smartphone maker. Samsung SDI has declined to comment.
