How to make yourself go to a gym?

From my own experience, I know that sometimes people do not go to a gym because they fell themselves uncomfortable and embarrassed to work out among slim and fit gym- frequenters. On that point you should decide whether I would be able to steel yourself and go through some difficulties, shame and embarrassment or you would quit the idea of an ideal body image. When I faced this problem 4 years ago, I chose the first variant. I do not want to brag but I am happy with my body now. Today I would like to share with you some tips, which were useful for me when I firstly came to a gym. Furthermore, I hope my pieces of advice would be beneficial for my readers and would ease their way to an ideal body image. Continue reading

Immense present

The most amazing, stunning and immense present for my birthday was a ticket to a concert of my favorite composer, which was held in Germany. Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian composer and a great pianist. He was well- trained and educated at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan, Italy. Even though Ludovico Einaudi was born in 1950s, he is famed for neoclassical new- age music and for minimalism. Furthermore, he wrote lots of soundtracks for well- known films such as The Untouchables and I’m Still Here. Continue reading

New Year coming

It might sound childish but my favorite holiday is New Year. As we know, people celebrate it on the 1st of January according to the Gregorian calendar. While preparing for writing this blog post, I searched the Internet and found that there are countries, where people live on the base of their traditional calendars and welcome the coming year not on the declared date. These countries are Iran, China, Korea and Islamic countries. Before searching, I knew only about the Chinese New Year, which is traditionally celebrated in the period between the 21st of January and the 20th of February. The date of celebrating depends on the position of the Moon towards our planet.

As for me, New Year is the most beautiful, the brightest and the most dreamlike holiday ever. Despite the place and the location where a person lives, despite his financial situation and how busy this person is, he is definitely trying to decorate his home. Talking about outfits, people get used to wear colourful costumes, which set our mood in a special way. Honestly, I plan my New Year make up and look long before the Coming New Year party. Sequins, tinsels, tassels, lights- and we are unconsciously immersed in a magical atmosphere where everything looks so mysterious. Furthermore, there is a great amount of shows, congratulations, songs, bright pictures and concerts related to the holiday in the media. I am sure that it also adds a “coin” to a piggy bank filled with joy and happiness. And, lastly, what could be better than New Year fireworks? Nothing!

By the way, I would like to point out that holiday treats fall to my liking, inasmuch as I am a heavy eater and a gourmet!

As a typical woman, I am keen on the wide-spread tradition to exchange presents with your close relatives and friends, or even with your neighbors. Before buying gift, I always take into account person’s preferences and tastes. Either age category or sex might be considered. Cards, souvenirs, books, scarves, cakes- presenting things, people give small parts of themselves to their close people.

I was able to notice that even if people do not celebrate New Year, they usually enthusiastically wait for the main midnight of the year in order to welcome the coming year and make an undercover wish.

 

“Never Have I Ever”

To my mind, almost everyone knows a game called Never Have I Ever” or “Ten fingers” where people gather together in one circle and exchange things, which they have never done. If you have been more experienced than others in the circle, you would have drunk a glass of wine or whiskey (it depends on what your fellows and you bought before the party). Though the described game is a drinking game, alcohol might be substituted with soft drinks or juice. Continue reading

Cancer or Everything is in our hands

About ten million people are diagnosed with cancer every year. Cancer stands on the second place among diseases, which cause death after cardiovascular diseases. According to the Cancer research UK statistics, more than 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2012 and about 5 million people die from cancer per year. Continue reading

“The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable”

As I have already mentioned, I love to take photos. Usually, there are breathtaking historical or exotic places I visit while traveling, sometimes I deal with some great annual events or small family parties, but more often I take pictures of my friends. Proudly saying, they like the way I do it. I always try to experiment with different angles and try to change the background. Continue reading

My first love

8This post will be on the theme of love. “A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.”- Max Muller. Love makes us happier and motivated to new achievements, teaches how to trust and support, helps to go through difficult moments of our lives and it shows us how to forgive and be reconciled with the imperfect traits of our second half.

My ways to relax

1Nowadays, the life of a modern person can not be imagined without stress. However, I would like to point out that it is not a new phenomenon for humankind, this response developed many years ago, namely, from the beginning of the human race. Sweaty hands, increasing in blood pressure, irritation or even fear- these are the most common signals to understand that you are under the stress now. Scientists say that stress affects a person greatly, to be peculiar, people lose the ability to live normally, mind and body are negatively influenced, chronic headaches and pessimistic thoughts are considered as an unavoidable part of a person’s life. Do you find all mentioned things scary? I do. Continue reading
