Are you ready for winter? Follow these make-up trends to keep your glow intact

Are you ready for winter? Follow these make-up trends to keep your glow intact Pallabi Dey Purkayastha Unlike the other three seasons, winter calls for a separate make-up kit altogether. | TNN | Oct 26, 2017, 18:08 IST Now we all know that winter, even by Mumbai standards, is a time when our skin loses its moisture and feels stretchy. Unlike the other three seasons, winter calls for a separate make-up kit altogether. To make things simple, we bring you a list of six make-up essentials that you should keep handy when it gets too cold outside. Moisturise before make-up: It is criminal to put even a tinge of foundation or BB cream without moisturising your skin first, which is highly dehydrated around this time of the year. Add a nice and preferably heavy (if you have very dry skin) day cream or moisturiser to your beauty regime. Once applied, wait for five minutes for the cream to settle into your skin. Lip balms to the rescue: Before your lips could take the weight of your lip liners and lipsticks, prepare them with a good quality lip balm . As it is, lips tend to get extra chapped during the cold season. Ditch foundations for BB creams: For a daily look, be it at work or dinner dates with friends, you can stick to a light to medium coverage beauty benefit (BB) cream. Foundations, when it gets cold, makes your face look cakey and the skin tends to emit white flakes too, which could prove to be very embarrassing in a social gathering. Move over concealer sticks: While concealing dark circles or blemished skin is of paramount importance to some girls, opting for a liquid-based concealer is a better option on a cold day. It not only helps to camouflage your flaws well, but also keeps the moisture level in place. Time for blush, bronzers and highlighters: Although the next three months are going to be mostly dry and gloomy, adding a hint of shimmer could up your make-up game. Be it a coral-hued blush or a silver highlighter , add it to your make-up must-haves list and shimmer away! Bright, off-beat lip colours: Since you are skipping quite a few steps as far as make-up is concerned, it is only fair that you balance it out with a rush of bright lips— neon pinks, tangerines and even the wackiest shade of purple. Remember Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's bold lip colours at the red carpet of an international film festival? Now is the perfect time to take cues from her.

High salt intake might double risk of heart failure

High salt intake might double risk of heart failure

Cardiologists say that while we do need sodium in our diet to help regulate fluids in the body, the amount of salt we actually eat in a day is far more than we require. | TNN | Oct 27, 2017, 01:00 IST Doctors say that table salt or sodium chloride is one of the biggest sources of sodium in our diets. It is made up of 40 per cent sodium and 60 per cent chloride. Dr Tilak Suvarna , senior interventional cardiologist says, "Sodium is a mineral that is essential for life. It helps to control our body's fluid balance, assists in sending nerve impulses and affects muscle function." Cardiologists say that while we do need sodium in our diet to help regulate fluids in the body, the amount of salt we actually eat in a day is far more than we require. "It's the excess of sodium that's the problem in relation to blood pressure. When there's extra sodium in our bloodstream, it attracts water into our blood vessels, increasing the total amount of blood flowing inside, leading to a hike in blood pressure," says Dr Suvarna . There is very convincing evidence in the form of studies and research done in our country and abroad, which has shown that regularly eating too much salt puts us at increased risk of developing high blood pressure. It is the main cause of strokes and also a major cause of heart attacks and heart failures — the most common causes of death and illness in the world. Why you need to stop having excess salt "Even if one does not have high blood pressure, eating less sodium can help blunt the rise in blood pressure that occurs with age, and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke," says Dr Santosh Kumar Dora , senior cardiologist. Eating less salt has also been shown to reduce the risk of kidney disease, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and even headaches. The extra water in our body can also lead to bloating and weight gain. High salt intake can be very harmful "So far, high salt intake has been associated with increased risk of hypertension, coronary heart disease and stroke. No such association has been seen for heart failure. In fact, there have been conflicting reports with some studies suggesting an association between dietary sodium intake with fluid retention and risk for hospitalisation, whereas other studies, however, have signalled a worsening of heart failure with sodium restriction," says Dr Suvarna. There is now enough evidence to start taking action to reduce salt intake globally, which could include legislation and education, alongside collaboration with the food industry, say cardiologists in the city. Beware! Salt ups the risk of heart ailments "A recent study has found that those who consumed more than 14 grams of salt per day had two times higher risk of heart failure compared to those consuming less than seven grams per day, independent of other risk factors," says Dr Dora. Keep in mind... About 77 per cent of the sodium we consume comes from packaged or prepared foods. The rest of the sodium in our diet occurs naturally in food (about 12 per cent) or is added by us during cooking or while eating our meals (about 11 per cent). So, even if you are not using a salt shaker, you're probably getting too much sodium. Most of the sodium that we eat is in our food before we buy it, so, many people unfortunately don't realise that they are eating too much salt. Thus, it makes it hard for people to limit how much sodium they are eating. Dr Suvarna says, "It is recommended that we should eat no more than six gm of salt a day, which is about a teaspoon. For people with high blood pressure, the recommendation is less four gm of salt which is about 2/3rd of a teaspoon." DID YOU KNOW? The World Health Organization recommends salt intake to be a maximum of five gms/ day for a normal person. The daily physiological need is around two to three gms/day.

Book Review: ...Because Words Matter by Kailash Satyarthi

Book Review: ...Because Words Matter by Kailash Satyarthi

Price: Rs. 295/- ( I got the book for review from the publishe r ) Behind the Book This book offers the guidance and teachings of Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. He has waged a peaceful struggle to stop children from being exploited as labour instead of being sent to school. The power of simplicity and humility in his messages has transformed the lives of millions of children. What he achieved through a single-minded devotion to the cause is testimony of how people can make a difference through seemingly small actions. What Satyarthi has been saying for the last thirty-six years are not merely words confined to the cause of children; in fact they represent the voice of freedom, anger, compassion and humanity. Words have the power to provoke, inspire and transform. Perhaps these can inspire the readers to work towards a more meaningful life…because words matter. About the Author Kailash Satyarthi won the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2014. After completing his graduation in electrical engineering, he began teaching at a university. However, soon the desire to work for the underprivileged children compelled him to quit his job. The issue of child rights and child labour was not yet a part of public discourse when Satyarthi founded the Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) in 1981. The organization has rescued more than 85,000 children from conditions of exploitative labour and modern-day slavery and has been successful in rehabilitating them. He is confident that the worst forms of child labour will be eliminated in his lifetime. To fulfil his vision of a world free of violence against children, he has established the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to help create and implement child-friendly policies through research, advocacy and campaigning to ensure the holistic development and empowerment of children. Besides the Nobel, Satyarthi is the first Indian to have been awarded the Defenders of Democracy Award, Medal of the Italian Senate, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award and the Harvard Humanitarian of the Year Award, among a few others. This book is a treat for any book lover who enjoys deep and meaningful insights in life. Presented like a personal pocket diary with a hardbound cover and written with beautiful calligraphy skills this book comes across as a collector's edition. Each and every quote shows you a different side of the author Kailash Satyarthi. Since the time he won the Nobel Prize he has been an inspiration for millions of Indians and with this book we just step closer to the man who is an ideal for an entire generation of people. His views on life, compassion, humanity, freedom, anger and education are truly moving. One cannot help but feel the depth in his words and feel motivated to aspire to be a better human being and give back to the society in every possible manner. His book is something that can be an ideal gift for anyone because of the sheer beauty of the language. It is also a wonderful guide for anyone looking for motivation. Keeping this book on the bed side and thinking of diving into the inspiration every time I seem to lose hope in the world around. Strongly recommended, this one is a something that needs to be cherished and proudly displayed on the bookshelf! Foodie Verdict This book is like Punugulu - cripsy, mouth-watering and best companion for a lazy afternoon! Source:

While Gurugram has 'anger rooms', Mumbai wants ‘peace rooms’ in offices

While Gurugram has 'anger rooms', Mumbai wants ‘peace rooms’ in offices

After workplace yoga, nap pods and foosball tables, rooms where you can unwind are the new destressor at the office | TNN | Oct 24, 2017, 01:00 IST Anger rooms allow people smash things to let off steam When something upsets you at work next time, don't pull your hair out or bang your hand on the keyboard trying to unburden your mental load. Instead, how about walking into a special area in the office where you can fume, rave and throw things about all you like? You'll be forgiven for your 'behaviour' as you're in an anger room. Say hello to this new-age therapeutic tool that lets folks let off steam in a reasonable manner, without any fear of being punished. Such anger rooms or 'rage rooms' are popping up all over the globe and there's a first one in India too, at Gurugram, where one can smash TVs, microwaves, crockery (all junk, of course) and more. In a hyper, stressed-out city like ours, is it high time such cathartic rooms came about? City mental health experts bat for 'peace rooms' instead While they agree that therapeutic rooms would work in offices, experts want them minus the idea of breaking things. Says psychiatrist Dr Harish Shetty, "There are better, more creative ways to handle anger. The concept may be okay, but such a room should not be a place for anger and destruction. Breaking things to remove anger is a medieval process and may leave one angrier. Companies should be more creative to address issues that cause anger. Instead, why not have a 'peace room' where people can be emotionally nude minus any violence? It could be a place where they can paint, draw run around or even cry alone. Executives who are up all night on chat interfaces or in disturbed relationships tend to be highly irritable. How about a jogging track at the workplace or a gym to help them?" he asks. Psychologist Dr Pradnya Jayant Ajinkya also adds, "How you regulate anger is important. Venting out has its upsides and disadvantages. While release leaves the mind feeling lighter, anger rooms seem to encourage violent activity, which is wrong as it can end up as an exhibition of a learned helpless behaviour. Why not create a tranquil room, which offers simpler diversion games like stress balls etc?" There's also something deeper to this. Says clinical psychologist Dr Varkha Chulani , "What is important is learning how to manage our ideologies of how we should or should not behave. An anger room won't empower you and it causes more damage. Instead, develop an internal locus of control. Reconstruct the attitudes that form the basis of emotional upsetness. You may have a special unwind zone or zen room, but you can't be in that 24 hours a day." For high-strung Mumbai, even a pinprick can set off rage Don't go by the age-old tricks of counting down from 10 or having a glass of cold water. Sometimes, none of these work in volatile situations. Says Udayan Shah, a stock market analyst from Fort. "My work is fast-paced with client demands and keeping track of the market. I can't help getting stressed and annoyed. At that time, all the advice of taking deep breaths or taking a chill pill doesn't work. How often I wish that I could vent out on my own without upsetting anyone else around me." If you too, find yourself impulsively flying into a rage almost every day, that's not surprising. In a '2017 Global Least and Most Stressed Cities Ranking', Mumbai is at an alarming 138. Any number of factors — from personal issues to security, unemployment, finance woes, traffic, public transport and pollution — act as a trigger to set off fury. And it wreaks havoc if unchecked. Affirms HR manager Makarand Gaikwad from a consultant firm at Mulund. "In Mumbai, one of the biggest workplace issues we deal with is employee dissatisfaction. Any number reasons can cause this — either people can't complete their work, or there are salary issues or even having to deal with a tough boss and management. People often bottle things up, which is unhealthy. So, having such a room at the workplace where you can yell out loud without being scolded, would be of help." Adds HR expert NK Ramesh, "We don't even recognise most mental health problems until they have reached a peak, so tools like this might really help. I think such a therapeutic room will help remove frustration and heat off the head if it's done minus breaking things. I know a number of organisations that actually keep punching bags on the premises as a tool to help employees de-stress; in fact, you can even put a photo of the person on the punching bag. Stress is a huge factor for wear and tear at the workplace and it starts right from the moment you leave home. It can occur to anyone, not just corporates . That said, a room that lets you unwind without building up your anger again should be the focus." What you can do in these peace rooms Life coach Milind Jadhav says the idea is to keep the mind engaged while also relieving it of stress. He suggests a few mood-shifters... Meditation or just being still and focusing on breathing Doodling and painting
