7 Things not to do after a meal

1- Don’t smoke- Experts have proven that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes.
2- Don’t eat fruits immediately – Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore eat fruit 1-2 hr’s after a meal or 1hr before a meal.
3- Don’t drink tea – Tea leaf’s contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.
4- Don’t loosen your belt – Loosening your belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.
5- Don’t bath – Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
6- Don’t walk about – People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.
7- Don’t sleep immediately – The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

Enjoy your food :)

How to read your hand ?

Palm reading, otherwise known as palmistry or chiromancy, is practiced all over the world. It has its roots in Indian astrology and Roma fortune-telling.The objective is to evaluate a person’s character or future by studying the palm of their hand. Whether you’re an aspiring palm reader or you’re just looking for a fun way to pass the time and impress your friends, here’s how to gain insight just by holding someone’s hand.
Steps :
1) Choose a hand. In palmistry, it is thought that:
  • For females, the right hand is what you’re born with, and left is what you’ve accumulated throughout your life.
  • For males, it is the other way around. The left hand is what you’re born with, and the right is what you’ve accumulated throughout your life.
  • That being said, you can also choose whichever hand is dominant to be your present/past life hand (the non-dominant hand would then be your future life hand).
    • There are different schools of thought on the matter. Some say the left hand shows potential and what could be — not necessarily what will be. And a difference in the hands could mean one is or is about to take action when it comes to their lives, changing it.
2) Identify the four major lines. There may be breaks in them or they may be short, but at least three of them are there.
  • (1) The heart line
  • (2) The head line
  • (3) The life line
  • (4) The fate line (not everybody has this).
 3) Interpret the heart line. This line can be read in either direction (from the pinkie finger to the index finger or vice versa) depending on the tradition being followed. It’s believed to indicate emotional stability, romantic perspectives, depression, and cardiac health. The basic interpretations are as follows:
  • Begins below the index finger – content with love life
  • Begins below the middle finger – selfish when it comes to love
  • Begins in the middle – falls in love easily
  • Straight and short – less interest in romance
  • Touches life line – heart broken easily
  • Long and curvy – freely expresses emotions and feelings
  • Straight and parallel to the head line – good handle on emotions
  • Wavy – many relationships and lovers, absence of serious relationships
  • Circle on the line – sadness or depression
  • Broken line – emotional trauma
  • Smaller lines crossing through heart line – emotional trauma
4) Examine the head line. This represents a person’s learning style, communication approach, intellectualism, and thirst for knowledge. A curved line is associated with creativity and spontaneity, while a straight line is linked with practicality and a structured approach. The basic interpretations are as follows:
  • Short line – prefers physical achievements over mental ones
  • Curved, sloping line – creativity
  • Separated from life line – adventure, enthusiasm for life
  • Wavy line – short attention span
  • Deep, long line – thinking is clear and focused
  • Straight line – thinks realistically
  • Donuts or cross in head line – emotional crisis
  • Broken head line – inconsistencies in thought
  • Multiple crosses through head line – momentous decisions.
5) Evaluate the life line. This begins near the thumb and travels in an arc towards the wrist. It reflects physical health, general well being, and major life changes (for example, cataclysmic events, physical injuries, and relocations). Its length is not associated with length of life. The basic interpretations are as follows:
  • Runs close to thumb – often tired
  • Curvy – plenty of energy
  • Long, deep – vitality
  • Short and shallow – manipulated by others
  • Swoops around in a semicircle – strength and enthusiasm
  • Straight and close to the edge of the palm – cautious when it comes to relationships
  • Multiple life lines – extra vitality
  • Circle in line indicates – hospitalized or injured
  • Break – sudden change in lifestyle
6) Study the fate line. This is also known as the line of destiny, and it indicates the degree to which a person’s life is affected by external circumstances beyond their control.[3] It begins at the base of the palm. The basic interpretations are as follows:
  • Deep line – strongly controlled by fate
  • Breaks and changes of direction – prone to many changes in life from external forces
  • Starts joined to life line – self-made individual; develops aspirations early on
  • Joins with the life line somewhere in the middle – signifies a point at which one’s interests must be surrendered to those of others
  • Starts at base of thumb and crosses life line – support offered by family and friends.

Think Before Talking

Once upon a time an old man spread rumors that his neighbor was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was proven innocent. After been released he sued the old man for wrongly accusing him. In court the old man told the Judge: 'They were just comments, didn't harm anyone.'

The judge, before passing sentence on the case, told the old man to 'Write all the things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut them up and on the way home; throw the pieces of paper out and come tomorrow to hear the sentence.'

The next day, the judge told the old man: 'Before receiving the sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces of paper that you threw out yesterday.' The old man said: 'I can't do that. The wind spread them and I won't know where to find them.'

The judge then replied: 'The same way, simple comments may destroy the honor of a man to such an extent that one is not able to fix it. If you can't speak well of someone, rather don't say anything wrong...

'Let's all be masters of our mouths, so that we won't be slaves of our words.'

Ten Tips - Studying

Make studying a part of your everyday routine and don't be limited to 'cramming' for exams/tests/job.

1. Establish a routine
Set aside a particular time each day for study and revision and stick to it.

2. Create a study environment
This should be away from interruptions and household noise, such as the television. Ensure there is adequate lighting and ventilation, a comfortable chair and appropriate desk.

3. Set a timetable
With a timetable you can plan to cover all your subjects in an organised way, allotting the appropriate time for each without becoming overwhelmed.

4. Look after yourself
Drink plenty of fluids, especially water, and eat healthy foods. Keep sugary foods to a minimum. Make sure you get enough sleep each night. Regular physical exercise makes you feel great, boosts your energy and helps you relax. So try to keep up regular sporting activities or at least fit in some regular exercise as often as you can.

5. Reward yourself for studying
Watch your favourite television program, spend time with your friends, walk to the park and play sport throughout the week.

6. Have variety in your learning program
Study different subjects each day and do different types of work and revision in each study session.

7. Avoid interrupting your concentration
Have all the appropriate materials with you before you start a session of study to minimise distractions.

8. Test yourself on what you have studied
 Quiz you on what you have learnt, use draft questions from books, past assessments or major exam papers.

9. Don't panic at exam/interview time
If you have followed a study routine and have been revising your class work, there should be no need to worry. Try to keep yourself calm, positive and confident.

10. Ask your others for guidance / search 'WWW'
Especially if you're having trouble - whether it's grasping a new concept or understanding something you learnt earlier in the year. They will be happy to help.


Once upon a time, at a large mountainside there was an eagle nest with 4 large eagle eggs inside.
One day, an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down to a chicken farm, located in the valley below.
The chickens knew that they must protect the eagle egg. Eventually, the eagle egg hatched and a beautiful eagle was born.
Being chickens, the chickens raised the eagle to be a chicken. The eagle loved his home and family but it seemed his spirit cried out for more.
One day, the eagle looked to the skies above and noticed a group of mighty eagles soaring. ”Oh,” the eagle cried, “I wish I could soar like those birds.”
The chickens roared with laughter, “You cannot soar like those. You are a chicken and chickens do not soar.” The eagle continued staring at his real family up above, dreaming that he could be like them.
Each time the eagle talked about his dreams, he was told it couldn’t be done.
That was what the eagle learned to believe. After time, the eagle stopped dreaming and continuedto live his life as a chicken.
Finally, after a long life as a chicken, the eagle passed away.
You become what you believe you are. If you ever dream to become an eagle, follow your dreams, not the words of chickens.

React / Respond

 At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky. The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but …it landed on another lady in the group. Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue. In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter. The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the movement of the cockroach on his shirt. At the opportune juncture, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.
The Question : Was the cockroach responsible for the edgy behaviour inside the restaurant ? Of course yes. It was the cockroach and the eerie feeling that it generates that caused such commotion.
If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed ? He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.
Please note, it was not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that distressed them.
Therefore, it is not the shouting of my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the turbulence caused by their shouting.
It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the annoyance caused by the traffic jam.
Bottomline More than the problem, it is the uncontrolled reaction to the problem that creates chaos in our lives. The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded. Thus, do not react in life, but always respond.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of, poised and save a situation from going out of hands. Thus, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid taking decisions in anger or anxiety, to avoid stress or hurry , to have a calm personality……stop reacting, start responding.
