6 Mantras of Healthy Relationship - JotOff

Whenever we are home alone and we need to cook something really tasty and quick, we just google for some delicious recipes and thanks to the google baba to land a number of recipes for us. But have you ever thought of the perfect recipe for a Healthy Relationship?

No? Don’t you worry, we bring to you the perfect mantra, the perfect recipe for a Healthy Relationship and will surely bring it on track. So, get ready and note down the ingredients from below!

APPRECIATE & RESPECT

Starting from the first ingredient, which we need abundantly. Appreciation whenever you can. Sometimes things can brighten up by a simple “Well done, i’m proud of you!”. These cannot be achieved by getting expensive gifts, dinner dates etc. Every individual has its self – respect and is bound to receive it. So its a simple funda, you give respect, you take respect.

SPACE IS ALL YOU NEED

Before getting in the relationship we should start loving ourselves. That at no point will make you selfish. It is indeed necessary to have some space or vacuum in the relationship. Sometimes you need some me time and spend some time alone which is completely alright.  Spending time on yourself doesn’t mean you don’t love your partner, it’s just you both are giving each other your perfect me time.

UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHERS DIFFERENCES

Ladki kyu na jaane kyu, ladko si nahi hoti?  Nahi ho sakti and neither the boys can be like  girls. Men and Women are two different and strong personalities, and it is completely fine to have a different opinion and views. Understanding each other’s differences and choices can help your relation build more stronger.

MORE THAN LOVERS, STAY BEST FRIENDS

It is rightly said that Love is Friendship. Sometimes, things which don’t go well as lovers, work best as friends. As friends you will always have a kind of comfort and fun kinda bonding. Keeping aside that feeling that we are a couple and we can’t do what friends don’t do it out of belief. Infact, do some crazy fun like you would do with your best friend and then see the results.

Healthy Relationship

SHOWING PHYSICAL AFFECTION

Actions speak louder than words. After a long tiring day at work, just a warm hug can soothe things and mood as well. Physical affection not only means getting way to intimate. Holding hands, hugging and touching will bring a calming sensation and reduce stress for each other. Studies say that the hormone Oxytocin also know as love hormone is released when you indulge in hugging or cuddling.

GETTING ANGRY IS NO WAY OUT

Most of the relationships tend to get more worse because of anger.  It will not let you understand what is good or whst it bad, but will only heat up the situation. So if you have an argument with your partner, just calm down, take a deep breathe, and then properly share what you have to say.

Having love in your relationship will not work always. These things play a very important role in building up the foundation of your relationship.  If both the partners will sincerely follow these ways then no one can stop your relationship from being the most romantic and healthy one. So keep adding these ingredients and spice up things in your love life!

Tips to stay cool this summer

How to stay cool in summer

From the past one week I can hear everyone just saying these 3 magical words. No No. Not I love you! Hahahaha.They keep saying “IT’S SOOOOOOO HOT!” While writing this down also, I have sweat slipping down my face.

Summer is the season to stay positive and being positive means you should first see your comfort. Wearing tight clothes will loose your comfort as well as make you feel more hot. So wear loose and light colored clothes. Avoid wearing black since it absorbs the heat.Wear loose-fitting clothing, preferably of a light color.

FREQUENT AND COLD SHOWERS

Thande Thande pani se nahana chahiye! This song absolutely states what I mean to say. Taking cold showers make you fresh and keeps your body temperature cool.

AVOID SPICY FOODS AND CAFFEINE AND ALCOHOL

In summers, food intake also should be properly taken care. Avoid spicy and canned foods. Eat light and fresh like fruits and vegetables. Eat fruits with good source of Vitamin C like lemons and oranges. Avoid caffeine and alcohol intake as they might heat up your body temperature.

STAY COVERED

Always move out in the sun with a hat or scarf to cover. Also you can apply some sunscreen for better protection. And don’t forget to put your shades on! Be cool and Stay cool!

SLEEP WELL, NO STRESS

Summers make you exhausted and it is important to take proper rest to your body and mind. So take enough rest, have good sleep and most important, stay positive and stress free.

Summers are also the best times to enjoy. So pack your bags and go for a vacation, possibly a beach. But yes, don’t forget to remember these tips and enjoy the summer!

Say YES to Condoms, NO to Condom Snorting Challenge

Condom Snorting Challenge - JotOff

Browsing the internet, I came across this bizarre challenge “The Condom Snorting Challenge!” The name itself is so disturbing, wonder how people are actually doing it! People have been snorting condoms for years. This challenge gained attention in 2013 when a video of a woman snorting a condom surfaced over the internet.

This challenge which is more common among the teenagers, wherein they were seen putting condom up their nostrils and keep inhaling until it comes out from the mouth. Like whaaaaaaaaat??? Seriously! How can someone even imagine doing it? This challenge is not only dangerous but also can be extremely fatal. Experts are constantly warning teenagers and parents of this online trend. This challenge can cause choking and also allergic reactions due to the latex on the condom. They can tend to get stuck in the nasal cavity.

Condom Snorting Challenge

Teenagers don’t think about the dangerous and life-threatening consequences of this challenge but just do it because it is viral up on the internet. Condoms stuck can cause long-term damage as well. In the past years, there was a case in India, where a woman accidentally inhaled a condom through her nose, didn’t get it out and her lung collapsed. She spent six months with a mucus-heavy cough and fever until doctors removed it surgically from her lungs.

The teens nowadays themselves are re-creating it and doing it for more likes and views but forgetting the consequences of the same. Parents should warn and stop the kids from browsing such stuff online and re-creating them.
