It is a very cold and lonely feeling.

Even when it is not your fault, you partner blames you for little things and big things in everyday life. They do not care enough about the healthy course your relationship can and should take and so, putting blames on you becomes habitual to them because holding someone else accountable for their own actions is easier to fulfil, is it not?
If they truly cared about you or your relationship, they would take the blame and not the other way around. It is just one of those small things we do in the name of love and friendship.
You two have a fight. One leaves. The other sits there wondering the why and how of it all. You’d expect them to have the decency to come to you and confront you about what happened, to clear things out. Seems like you had a blindfold on; for they never do, just blame you for everything without clearing things first. Maybe you aren’t in a position to; there can be many reasons. But if they really cared about the relationship, wouldn’t they come and sit with you and talk things out? The matter speaks for itself.

It feels great when you take a nap after a long busy day, doesn’t it? Nevertheless, sometimes we might be wondering why we still feel tired, or even more tired than before the nap. The simple rule is this: A nap longer than half an hour is not a nap, but it is considered a deep sleep. That is the main reason why we feel exhausted after taking a nap which is longer than it should be, and still not enough to be a real sleep. After that 30 minutes it is very difficult for the body to recover from that sleep.
ing around 10-minute to 20-minute nap will work in a way that your brain’s mental capacity will increaseand you will be more alert. Just take a brief nap and enjoy its advantages. You will be quicker and more efficient after it.
If you have a lot of commitments and work to do, and you want to stay awake for a longer period of time or during the night, take several 20-minute naps during the day. After the short nap you will feel fresh and focused for a few hours. When you start losing alertness take one short nap again. However, you should not exaggerate with this, since your body needs some proper rest.
Moreover, your brain needs deep sleep to work properly. So, if you really need a lot of time to finish something and especially if it is connected with brain activity (as studying) take a longer nap – around one hour. That will refresh your brain and memory and your brain will be able to efficiently carry out the cognitive processes. If you want to stabilize the imagination levels and creative thinking as wellnap for 90 minutes.
If you want to take a nap,instead of setting up an alarm just position your body in a slightly sit up position so that you do not fall asleep. Dreaming during the naps is a sign of sleep deprivation. If you experience this go straight to bed and sleep for at least 8 hours.

Every time you go to the grocery store, blueberries should be at the top of your list. There is a lot of nutrition packed into each one of those small berries and you don’t want to miss out on everything they have to offer.
Blueberries are one of the few fruits native to North America with the U. S. and Canada being by far the world’s largest growers of this berry. During the months of June and July is when blueberries reach their peak but thanks to imports from South America, blueberries are now available year-round. Whether fresh, frozen, dried, or canned, blueberries can be a part of your diet in various ways.
When choosing blueberries, look for firm, uniformly colored berries. Keep in the refrigerator or you can freeze them or buy blueberries already frozen. In fact, research has shown that frozen blueberries retain most of their anthocyanin content whereas cooking at temperatures above 350 degrees damages these polyphenols, so go easy on the blueberry muffins.
Health benefits of blueberries
The nutritional profile of one cup of blueberries looks like this:
· Only 80 calories
· No fat and almost no sodium
· Are a very good source of vitamin C, fiber, manganese and potassium
Blueberries have numerous health benefits primarily because of a compound they contain called phytochemicals.
Phytochemicals are found in many types of fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, and are responsible for giving them their richly colored blue hue. They are also said to be bioactive and very important for our health.
Phytochemicals have healthful properties acting as an antioxidant, anticancer, anti-neurodegenerative, and anti-inflammatory agent. They basically help in the prevention and treatment of health conditions ranging from heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer.
Blueberries and heart health
Blueberries love your heart and want to protect it so why not let it? Research has shown people who consume these delicious berries on a regular basis have the greatest benefit and lowest risk factors for heart disease.
A chemical found in blueberries called kaempferol, prevents oxidative damage of our cells, lipids, and DNA. Another compound found in blueberries called chlorogenic acid limits low density lipoproteins (LDL) oxidation, the major determinant of atherosclerosis.
Other studies have shown blueberries to improve blood pressure and reduce arterial stiffness with the average systolic blood pressure (the top number) declining by 5.1%, while the diastolic pressure dropping by 6.3%.
Blueberries and diabetes
The antioxidant chlorogenic acid found in blueberries may slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream, helping the body better handle this sugar. The anthocyanins in blueberries appear to improve pancreatic beta cell functioning.
Blueberries and vision
You don’t often hear of blueberries healthy effect on our vision but research shows that blueberries antioxidants help reduce eye strain, photo damage to the retina, and protect retinal cells from chemical toxins.
Blueberries and Alzheimer’s disease
The consumption of blueberries is believed to play a role in delaying the development of neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s disease. Blueberry extract has been shown to reverse some age-related neuronal degeneration resulting in better spatial recall.
Anthocyanins richly found in blueberries, maybe the real star in boosting brain health. This important phytochemical is able to cross the blood-brain barrier possibly helping decrease vulnerability to the oxidative stress that occurs with aging by reducing inflammation and increasing signaling between neurons.
The Nurses’ Health Study looked at 16,000 women over the age of 70 and found that women who consumer two or more half-cup servings of blueberries or strawberries per week experienced slower mental decline which was the equivalent of up to two and a half years of delayed aging.
Animal studies have found that the addition of blueberries to their diet improved short-term memory, navigational skills, balance and coordination.
Blueberries and digestive health
All berries, including blueberries have a special health effect on the digestive tract. They help inhibit the growth of Heliobacter pylori. H pylori, a bacterial infection leading to peptic ulcer disease.
Berries can also inhibit the growth of several intestinal pathogens such as Salmonella and Staphylococcus.
Blueberries and urinary tract health
In the urinary tract, blueberry antioxidants fight infection, preventing the adhesion of harmful bacteria and act as an antimicrobial agent. Anthocyanin is responsible for preventing adhesion and proliferation activity of E. Coli bacteria in a urinary tract infection.
Blueberries and cancer
The anticancer benefits of blueberries remains limited at this time even though the American Institute for Cancer Research does include them on its list of cancer-fighting foods. In cell studies, blueberry phytochemicals have been shown to decrease free radical damage to DNA that can lead to cancer and to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

To most people, a smell isn’t just a fragrance — it’s a memory.( When a warm breeze blows the smell of fresh flowers, you’re instantly rocketed back to your first dance and the corsage your date brought.
And these nostalgic ties aren’t just a coincidence — there’s science behind why we cherish these aromas. Our olfactory response is directly linked to the emotional center of our brain, causing a flood of warm and fuzzy feelings with a simple sniff. Unlike touch or taste, scents are directly correlated with past experiences. It’s no wonder the smell of rain or the scent of a swimming pool makes us so reminiscent.
But aside from their memory-inducing powers, certain scents can also do amazing things for our mind and body. From stress relief to headache relief, certain aromas have a way of making an impact.
