7 Wonders of Water


Stay Slimmer With Water

Trying to lose weight? Water revs up metabolism and helps you feel full.
Replace calorie-filled beverages with water, and drink a glass before meals to help you feel fuller.
Drinking more water helps amp up metabolism - especially if your glass is icy cold. Your body must work to warm the water up, burning a few extra calories in the process.

Water Boosts Your Energy

If you're feeling drained and depleted, get a pick-me-up with water. Dehydration makes you feel tired.

The right amount of water will help your heart pump your blood more effectively.
And water can help your blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells. 

Lower Stress With Water

About 70% to 80% of your brain tissue is water. If you're dehydrated, your body and your mind are stressed.
If you're feeling thirsty, you're already a little dehydrated.
To keep stress levels down, keep a glass of water at your desk or carry a sports bottle and sip regularly.
 Build Muscle Tone With Water
Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramping and lubricates joints in the body.
When you're well hydrated, you can exercise longer and stronger without "hitting the wall."

Nourish Your Skin

Fine lines and wrinkles are deeper when you're dehydrated. Water is nature's own beauty cream.
Drinking water hydrates skin cells and plumps them up, making your face look younger.
It also flushes out impurities and improves circulation and blood flow, helping your skin glow.
 Stay Regular With Water
Along with fiber, water is important for good digestion.
Water helps dissolve waste particles and passes them smoothly through your digestive tract.
If you're dehydrated, your body absorbs all the water, leaving your colon dry and making it more difficult to pass waste.
 Water Reduces Kidney Stones
The rate of painful kidney stones is rising. One of the reasons could be because people -- including children -- aren't drinking enough water.
Water dilutes the salts and minerals in your urine that form the solid crystals known as kidney stones.
Kidney stones can't form in diluted urine, so reduce your risk with plenty of water!

 Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Most healthy adults get enough to drink by letting their thirst guide them.
But the exact amount you need depends on your size, level of activity, the weather, and your general health.
You may need more water if you exercise or sweat heavily.

First, know where you want to go.
Then, go where you want to go.
You are your own pilot
and you can choose your Destination.
Tremendous energy lies within each one of us.
Alas! We don't discover and unleash it
and when we die, we lose it
because we didn't use it.
Look at yourself—are your eyes Twinkling?
Is your heart Dancing?
Are your lips Smiling?
If yes, then you are truly enjoying Life.
Whenever a problem arrives,
do three things—
Face it, Fight it and Finish it.
There are people who are dancing through Life
and others who are crying through Life.
The irony is that Life is the same —
what we do is purely our Choice.
We all program our gadgets
— computers, mobiles etc.
But we don't Program our Mind
in such a way that we can
Enter Faith, exit Doubt.
Enter Hope, exit Worry.
Enter Courage, exit Fear.
Let the Positive enter your Life
so that the Negative exits.
Life is not a Race,
but we still continue the Chase
and try to be an Ace.
It 's time to get out of this Maze
and Truly Live with Grace.
Some people live such boring lives;
it 's Black & White, so dead!
I choose to color my life with Fun,
some Blue, some Green, some Red.
Look at people around you.
Some Inspire you, some Perspire you.
Be with those that build Energy in you.

An engineer can’t find a job so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside 


A lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic .......

Lawyer: I have lost my sense of taste.                         

Engineer: Nurse, bring medicine from box no 22 and put 3 drops in patient’s mouth.

Lawyer: Ugh... this is kerosene.

Engineer: Congrats!!! Your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20.

Lawyer: I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything.

Engineer: Nurse, bring medicine from box no 22 and put 3 drops in patient’s mouth.

Lawyer (annoyed): This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring m taste.

Engineer: Congrats!!! You got your memory back. Give me $20.

The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.

Lawyer: My eyesight has become very weak.

Engineer: Well, I don’t have any medicine for that, so take this $100.

Lawyer(staring at the note): But this is $20, not $100.

Engineer: Congrats!!! Your eyesight is restored. Give me $20.


Life is made up of Moments.
Moments create Days, days create Months,
months create Years and years create LIFE.
Lose the moment and you lose Life.
Be thankful that you are on your feet,
for there are people who can't
even walk down the street.
Don't be amongst those who
are trying to build a better Tomorrow.
You can have a better tomorrow only if
your Today is better than your Yesterday.
Life is like a beautiful bird
that comes to your hand.
If you let it go, it will fly into the sky,
never to return.
First you Yearn to Earn.
Then you Learn that others
will Burn what you Earn.
Stop! Turn and Spend before your End.
It is strange — people chase and hoard money,
and even cheat the world to become rich
only to finally leave it all behind.
The Wind that Blows,
the Water that Flows,
the Sun that Glows, are
all proof that a Power exists.
Believe and Experience the Universal Power.
Think of Today, not Tomorrow.
It's time to be Happy,
not live a Life of Sorrow.
Find out those things that make you
Glad & eliminate those that make you Sad.
Of course, things will go wrong.
Move on!
Don't let the little snags
affect the progress of your life.
Don't just GO through life,
GROW through it for
Life comes to you only once... never to return!
Climb the Ladder of Life, step by step.

A moment spent in Sorrow
or a moment spent in Pain
is a waste of a Great Treasure
that you will never get again.
Enthusiasm is a Power
that can give Dreams to the Dreamless,
Life to the Lifeless and
Hope to the Hopeless. 
There are people who Dream
and there are people who Scream.
There are people who Cry
and there are people who Fly.
The good news is that this is a CHOICE!
You can be who you want to be,
if you stop being what others want you to be.
Live your Life Philosophy. 
It may be a Mountain or a Tree,
a River or a Bee...
Learn to enjoy the little things in Life. 
Even one day lost in misery is a great loss,
for the day will never come back again.
You lose 24 hours of Happiness,
Joy & Bliss.
Live each day in Happiness. 
Never worry about the Past,
it brings Tears.
Don't think too much about the Future,
it brings Fears.
Live in the Present Moment with a Smile,
it brings Cheers!! 
Life is made of Pleasures,
Life is made of Pain.
Don't just enjoy the Rainbow,
also Learn to dance in the Rain.
With Time, you can create Money,
but with money, you cannot create Time.
So Time is more valuable than Money. 
There can be no Positive result
from a Negative attitude.
Think Positive. Live Positive.

Happiness is a shadow.
If you chase it, it moves further away.
But if you turn to make others happy,
it will follow you.
Make others Happy and be Happy.
Life is a Canvas.
Every action of ours is a stroke of paint
and at the end, how beautiful our painting is
will depend upon all our strokes, all our Actions.
Live! Don't just Exist!!!
Don't drag through life . . .
Live each day as a Celebration!
If you don't like the Fruits you are growing, then change the Seeds you are sowing.
Living Life without a Purpose
is like having an ice cream cone in your hand,
letting it melt and drip without eating it.
It was yours to Enjoy, but you lost it!
I would rather live 10 years
doing what I Love, than drag
through Life 50 years, hating every day
I Live.
In life what you ASPIRE
— be it Loss or Gain,
Sun or Rain, Joy or Pain.
Don't just Hurry, don't just Haste.
Don't just Worry, don't just Waste.
Life is a Treasure, Enjoy the Pleasure.

PEACE is the foundation of Happiness
— for where there is Anxiety,
Tension and Turmoil,
Joy cannot exist.
The Sun challenges us to Shine,
the Clouds remind us to Move,
the Birds tell us we too can Fly
and the Sky tells us that there is no limit
to our Dreams and Goals.

Cholesterol in the Blood

The amount of fibre in the diet also influences the cholesterol levels and LDL cholesterol can be lowered by taking diets rich in fibres.

The most significant sources of dietary fibre are unprocessed wheat bran, whole cereals such as wheat, rice, barley, rye; legumes such as potato, carrot, beet and turnips; fruits like mango and guava and green vegetables such as cabbage, lady's finger, lettuce and celery.

Oat bran is especially beneficial in lowering LDL cholesterol. Expect effects of 8 to 15 mg/dl after consuming 30 g of oat bran each day for 30 days.

Get to Know Vegetarian Principles

Vegetables are also good for the patient of hypertension. They should preferably be taken raw. If they are cooked, it should be ensured that their natural juices are not burnt in the process of cooking.
Vegetables like cucumber, carrot, tomatoes, onion, radish, cabbage and spinach are best taken in their raw form. They may be cut into small pieces and sprinkled with a little salt and the juice of a lemon added to them so as to make them more palatable.

Get to Know Healthy Kitchen Practices
Example: Foods That Require Careful Cooking
Certain foods, especially if they are not properly cooked, cause indigestion. Some people react unfavourable to certain foods like beans, cabbage, onions, cucumber, radishes and seafood.

Fried foods as well as rich and spicy foods often cause abdominal discomfort and gas, and aggravate the existing condition.

What are some other important considerations?
Excessive smoking and intake of alcohol can also cause stomach upsets.
Constipation may interfere with the normal flow of ingested matter through the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in gas and abdominal pain.
Drinking too much water with meals, insomnia, emotions such as jealousy, fear and anger and lack of exercise are among the other causes of indigestion.

(Basic Healing Principles) Control Inflammation with Cold
For controlling inflammation, use the cold compress.
This is a local application using a cloth that has been wrung out in cold water. The cloth should be folded into a broad strip and dipped in cold water or ice water. The compress is generally applied to the head, neck, chest, abdomen and back.

The cold compress is an effective means of controlling inflammatory conditions of the liver, spleen, stomach, kidneys, intestines, lungs, brain, pelvic organs and so on. It is also advantageous in cases of fever and heart disease. The cold compress soothes irritations of the dermis and inflammations of external portions of the eye. When the eyeball is affected, the cold compress should follow a short fomentation
