Are Fitness Trackers and Smartwatches Worth it

Since fitbit came out in 2009, fitness bands and trackers have become really popular.

Benefits of fitness trackers

Measure progress towards fitness goals
It is very easy to measure and track your fitness progress when you see them in form of numbers. You can easily track your fitness goals and improve them. The numbers further motivate you to achieve better goals.

Train better
Since a fitness tracker shows you what is your heartbeat,you can make effective decisions about the range you want to train in. You can relax if your heartbeat is over the limit where you wnat it to be. This can help you train better

Drawbacks of Fitness trackers
While we have discussed the various advantages of fitness trackers, they have several drawbacks as well. Below we have mentioned some of them

Inaccurate readings
The biggest drawback of fitness trackers could be that they are not best at doing what they claim to do. The distance travelled is not accurate. When you travel fast , these trackers could measure less distance than what it actually is and when you travel slow they tend to over measure the distance. Some trackers could give you a different estimate of calories burned than what actually is. If these trackers are the only guide that you depend on than you might not be getting accurate results

Cost
A good fitness tracker could cost around Rs 2500 in India. You could find some that are cheaper but then they might not have as many functions or might not be accurate. In case you want more features you should spend more.

It makes sense to read reviews of fitness trackers before you decide about buying one

Lose the Love Handles! Yoga Routine
This sequence won't burn away the fat, but once you do some cardio to trim down your tummy, these moves will leave you with awesome abs and a flat belly. 1. Down Dog Come onto the hands and knees with your wrists underneath your shoulders and your knees underneath your hips. Inhale as you tuck your toes under your heels. Then exhale to lift your hips, coming into the classic upside-down-V shape called Downward Facing Dog. Spread your fingers wide, and create a straight line between your middle fingers and elbows. Work on straightening your legs and lowering your heels toward the ground. Relax your head between your arms, and direct your gaze through your legs or up toward your belly button. Breathe deeply for five breaths. 2. Warrior 1 From Down Dog, inhale to step your right foot forward between your hands. Turn your left heel in, press into your feet, and lift your torso up. Raise your arms up, and press your palms together. Draw your shoulder blades down toward your hips, and gaze up toward your hands in Warrior 1. Stay here for five breaths. 3. Warrior 2 From Warrior 1, inhale to open your hips, arms, and chest to the left. Gaze past your right fingertips, keeping your front thigh parallel with the floor. Stay like this in Warrior 2 for five complete breaths. 4. Extended Side Angle From Warrior 2, exhale as you plant your right hand on the floor beside your right foot, and raise your left arm over your ear. Hold Extended Side Angle for five breaths. 5. Sage From Extended Side Angle, release your left palm to the mat in Down Dog position. Grab onto your right big toe with the first two fingers and thumb of your right hand. Inhale to come up onto the ball of the back foot, and roll open to the left, raising your right leg into the air and planting your left heel on the mat. Straighten the leg if you can or keep the knee bent, gazing at your right hand while holding Sage for five deep breaths. 6. Sage Tree From Sage, release your right toes, bend your right knee, and use your right hand to pull your right heel as high up on your inner thigh as possible, so it's in Tree position. Once you're stable, reach your right arm up above you, and if you can, gaze up at your palm. Stay here in Sage Tree for five deep breaths, trying to keep your core strong and the pose steady. 7. Balancing Star From Sage Tree, straighten the right leg into the air. Gaze at your lifted hand, and hold Balancing Star for five breaths. Keeping your core engaged will help you stay balanced. 8. One-Legged Four-Limbed Staff From Balancing Star, keep the right leg lifted, and as you exhale, release your right hand to the mat and bend your elbows behind you, slowly lowering into Four-Limbed Staff. Keep your abs engaged and your body in one straight line with the right leg lifted. If this is too difficult, rest the right knee on the floor. Hold here for five complete breaths. 9. Upward Facing Dog From One-Legged Four-Limbed Staff, release the right foot to the floor and inhale as you scoop the chest forward, coming into Upward Facing Dog. Continue to press equally into the tops of the feet and palms, breathing for five breaths. 10. Clasped Locust From Up Dog, release your belly to the floor. Bring the arms behind your lower back, and clasp your fingers together, pressing the heels of the palms together in a double fist. As you inhale, pull the hands away from you to lift the chest as high as you can, simultaneously raising the feet. Lengthen through the spine by drawing the head away from the toes, holding Clasped Locust for five breaths. 11. Press back into Child's Pose to release the lower back.
Running Tips for People Who Hate Running
I always wanted to be the girl in the cute leggings that you see running near the beach while you're in your car driving to get super fattening burritos. But I just couldn't do it. Running was something that I really hated even in elementary school. Once I got serious about fitness though, I realised I had to change! So here are my tips (from a girl that hates running!) on how to become a runner! - Take it slow. Find your own pace. Starting on a treadmill first helps and and will get you working towards a faster speed. - Run in intervals. You aren't going to run 5 miles straight the first time. Plus, interval training is great for your metabolism! Try alternating between walking for a minute and then running for a minute. Find your comfort zone. - Always wear running shoes: Not all sneakers are created equally. Check out your local shoe store and make sure your current pair is a good running shoe. You don't want to injure yourself! - Watch your breathing: Side cramps are no pleasant and simple breathing helps you avoid it! Periodically, take a deep breath in through your nose and a big exhale out of your mouth. This will help get your breathing under control. - Listen to your favorite music: Running playlists are SO important! They motivate you to keep going and help you find the right pace. - Know when to stop: Don't push yourself too hard. Know your limits and don't push them too far. You want to challenge yourself, but not hurt yourself.. - Run with friends: Most activities are more fun with others, and running is no exception. Your friends can encourage you to keep going and to run just a little bit further. Just don't go out for ice cream afterwards!
Women use Xanax reduce Anxiety
Women use Xanax more than men to reduce Anxiety According to the article by Wayside House and many more scientific studies, women tend to buy Xanax more than men. Perhaps, women live in more anxiety than men. But here are the reasons behind the high anxiety level. Gender discrimination at workplace/home Believe it or not, gender discrimination is the root of society. Thus, women suffer a lot and have been fighting for their rights for 100 years. Discrimination in responsibility, status, work handling, and most importantly salary are the reasons for anxiety in women. Bad management of professional and personal life Our life needs a proper balance thus if you are a working and women and you have a family to take care of. There, women start panicking and become frustrated to manage work. Thus, it leads to a bad relationship with family members and colleagues as well Avoiding healthy foods Either working or non-working or married or unmarried women, they do not take care of their health and eat healthy food. And most likely indulge in junk food or stay hungry to cut down fat. But, they do not release that if your stomach gets upset then your brain lowers the feeling of happiness Menstruation and more health issues Menstruations are a part of a woman’s life and indeed it is more stressful. PMSing and laziness grow the anxiety level. Besides, health issues like skin diseases and hair fall can make women depressed and panicky Solutions to deal with anxiety symptoms Well, primarily it is advisable to take a morning walk, exercise to regular blood flow in the body. However, women should take proper sessions with the therapist to reduce anxiety symptoms. Besides, proper sleeping helps to reduce anxiety levels and brings happiness in the body. Otherwise, women with OCD and regular panic attacks prefer to take anti-anxiety pills like Xanax. How does xanax help? The brand name of Xanax is Alprazolam, which helps in the action of reducing panic disorder, anxiety symptoms such as depression, and isolation. Besides, order Xanax 2mg belongs to the drug category of benzodiazepine. And benzo is solely working to act in the brain's certain neurotransmitters in the brain. It is a very common medicine and yet popular in the United States of America. Besides, Xanax 3mg is considered as C-1V, and it is a federally controlled substance as the drug is easy to addictive and abuse. Alprazolam has so many side-effects like dizziness, drowsiness, insomnia, and vomiting once you over-consume the drug. Therefore, your doctor must have told you to not get this medicine while driving or go alone outside. Conclusion Women are strong enough, they have more patience level than men. However, they are more prone to anxiety and panic attacks than men in every corner of the world. Hence, doctors prescribe Xanax 2mg more to women while considering every side-effect and health effects. Besides, you must ask your doctor before taking the medicine as a whole treatment of anxiety. It comes in multiple dosages as well.
Tips for New Runners
1. Keep it consistent: If you stop running for a while, then you'll have to build your conditioning back up. So set yourself a schedule and stick to it! This doesn't mean running the same place and pace everyday, but just be sure to run somewhere, somehow consistently. 2. Learn proper form: Just like any exercise, if you aren't in the right position it just won't have the same results. When running, keep your head over your spine, relax the shoulders, and engage your abs. Bad running form is a common cause of injury. 3. Dress the part: Everyone loves cute running attire - for good reason. There's no need to invest in anything fancy, but be sure to put some thought into a good pair of shoes. They can be the difference between a good run and an injury. 4. Fuel right: Running on an empty stomach can keep you from having the right amount of energy, but eating too much can lead to cramping. So where is that middle ground?! Try peanut butter toast (one slice!) at least 15 minutes before running. 5. Drink water: Hydration, hydration, hydration! If you don't drink enough water before your run (as well as during), then chances are you'll have to stop before you'd like to because of fatigue or a cramp. 6. Have a plan: It's not all about consistency; you should also keep your body challenged. Plan on doing these new kinds of runs, but be sure to incorporate easy runs into your weekly plan as well. 7. Do more than run: Don't limit yourself to the trails or treadmills. There are many things you can do when you aren't running that can help you, like stretching after every run, strength training regularly, and getting enough sleep!
7 Ways to Increase Thinking Capacity of Your Brain
Perhaps the most complicated and greatest asset a human being can have is the processing power between your ears. This in mind, investing in this supercomputer is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Amazingly, scientists think that the average humans only use 12% of their brain! Very few of us take time or allocate resources to train our brains. Neuroscientists believe that we are stuck with the same brain we were born with! The good news is that you don’t need to be a billionaire to improve memory or your thinking capacity. Think of your brain as a muscle that needs to be exercised. All you need to do is dedicate some few minutes every day to do some exercises. 1. Exercise regularly Just as you take time to do some physical exercises, you should allocate time to do some mind exercises. Mind exercises improve mind fitness just the same way physical exercises improves physical fitness. Neurologists have proven that regular exercises of the brain enhances brain functioning and improves neurogenesis. Physical exercises have also been linked to the formation of new brain cells and thus you should stay physically active too. 2. Train your memory If you don’t use your brain, it will stagnate. If you want your dog to be a better fetcher, you must train or get it trained to fetch. Likewise, if you need you brain to be better; you must train your mind to retain memory. Discipline yourself to memorize phone numbers and other essential numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license). The more you add to your brain, the more you expand its capacity! 3. Nourish your brain with a healthy diet The food you eat is, without doubt, a big contribution to proper brain functioning. The human brain consumes over 20% of all the oxygen and nutrients that we consume! Feed your brain with good stuff like fresh fruit and vegetables and plenty of Omega 3 oils. 4. Question facts and think positive Don’t take everything at face value. Develop a habit of questioning everyday things. Ask yourself the “what if questions”. What if we didn’t invent the wheel? What if the continents moved? By being curious, you train your mind to be innovative and develop ideas. They say curiosity killed the cat, but they don’t tell you that the same curiosity created electricity. Neuroscientists, have linked anxiety and stress to the killing of brain neurons and also hamper new neurons being created. Psychologist have found out that positive thinking, especially in the future, boosts the production of new cells and dramatically controls stress and reduces anxiety. Free your mind from anything which is not right here and right now. Staying mindful and in a present REALITY is the healthiest thing you can do to your brain. I don’t mean the virtual reality or social media reality but the REAL reality. As a result, you stop expecting too much from other people, which gives you the chance to truly enjoy their company and spend some quality time together. It also leads to finding contentment and peace. Happiness, after all, can’t be found anywhere else, but in the present. So without trying to make things perfect, to change anything about the current situation, or to wish for something that sounds better, you can enjoy what is by truly accepting it. 5. Read! Read! Read! Reading not only relieves tension and stress to the brain-cells but it also gives you another perspective on things. Books are the best way to grow your brain and expand your thinking, but social media and magazines are a good source of humor and everything that can’t fit into a book. Reading is the best way to train your brain and expand your thinking. Read books which are not only fun but also expand your knowledge. 6. Get enough sleep Sleeps is the reset button for the brain. When you sleep, your body regenerates brain cells and does all the maintenance work on both your body and your brain. A daily dose of 4–6 hours of sleep every night has proven the best way to improve thinking and create new ideas and innovations. Mindfulness meditation before falling asleep can be really helpful. Close your eyes and ignore everything around you. Imagine you’re at a peaceful place. Breathe deeply and empty your mind. Focus on your breathing for a while until you relax your body and mind. Know you’ve done your best for the day, and that tomorrow comes with many new opportunities. Be positive about what’s to come. If these are the last thoughts in your head before you fall asleep, then you’ll be in peace and won’t have nightmares. Once you’ve slept enough and sound, be sure that tomorrow morning you’ll not only kickstart the day, but be super productive, present for the whole day and in a pretty good mood and able to focus effortlessly. 7. Eliminate Errors in Thinking It is important to know the psychological side of thinking. Your brain prowess aside, we all make thinking errors. There are five different errors that psychologists have identified; Partialism, Adversary Thinking, Time Scale Error, Initial Judgment and arrogance and Conceit. Partialism: Errors that occur when the individual observes the problem through ones perspective only. That is, an individual examines only one factor of the problem and most often than not, we arrive at a premature solution. Adversary Thinking: This is the “you are the one who is wrong and thus I should be right.” type of thinking. Politicians are the masters in this type of thinking and they use it to their advantage. Time Scale Error : This is a kind of partialism in thinking where the individual sees the problem from a limited time-frame. It can be likened to short-sightedness. Initial Judgment: Here, the individual becomes very subjective. Instead of considering the issue or problem objectively, the individual approaches it with prejudice or bias. Arrogance and Conceit: may also be referred to as the “Village Venus Effect” because like country people, who think that the hottest girl in their village is the hottest girl in the world, the thinker believes that there is no better solution other than that he has already found.

Yoga Secrets for Beginners
Hey you! You yoga beginner! I heard you making big statements about how 2015 was going to finally be the year you devote yourself to this practice. So let's get right to it shall we? Before we even think about touching our toes or focusing on breathing, let's make sure we really understand what yoga is: 1. Yoga is not a religion. It is a way of life, a type of exercise, a practice. Yoga is all about moving your body and understanding yourself. It is about bringing the world around and within you into focus. 2. Yoga is not a “push until you drop” practice. There are poses that can be mistaken as sleeping on the floor, the Child's pose is made for complete relaxation. This is not always a practice that will have you out of breath and begging for mercy! 3. This isn't a quick weight loss plan. You first build muscle and are working on your strength so that a few months after you begin you will find your body burning fat like it never has before. Get into yoga for more than just the weight loss benefits. Think of the mental health benefits too! 4. Get a good mat. I started yoga using a beach towel. No good. It completely changes your practice to have a mat that is thick and comfortable but most of all grips well. 5. No one is watching you. Seriously, I used to be so paranoid about how I looked in class, but once you really get involved in yoga you realize it is just you and your mat. Say hi to your neighbors when you get there, and then forget about them until the practice is over. 6. When you wake up “too sore” to go to yoga, go anyway. One of the best things you can do for your soreness is stretch it out. 7. Practice on an empty stomach. A light snack may be good before cardio, but not yoga. You are using the core so much, you want to come to class with an empty stomach and an open mind. 8. Take pictures. I know a lot of you will never post any, and that is totally fine. I have found that when I am down on my practice or get discouraged, I look at old pictures and compare with current ones. It will shock you how far you’ve come so quickly. 9. That moment when you are stretching, it is painful, and you want to give up and get out of the pose, give it one more full breath, breathing into where the pain is. It is a mind over matter game! 10. Have fun. This is your journey. It is never over!
