I don’t really think that someone drinks the rice water after we cook our rice. Well, this is probably because we didn’t know that this rice water is loaded with healthy nutrients and it can provide many health benefits for us and our health in general. Just a single cup of rice water a week can improve your health on so many levels.

In this article we are going to show you why you should waste this rice water and why you should drink it:
  1. It is a good source of energy
Rice water is loaded with carbohydrates, which means that it will provide a lot of energy for the entire day. The human body needs carbohydrates for energy, so a glass of rice water in the morning is the best wat to start your day. You should also drink rice water when you feel tired or lack of energy.
  1. It prevents constipation
You should also know that rice water is rich in fiber, which means that it’s very useful and beneficial for regular bowel movements. The starch in the rice water motivates the development of useful bacteria in the stomach.
  1. Prevents dehydration
During the hot summer days, we lose a lot of water through sweating and rice water is perfect to prevent dehydration and loss of nutrients. This is why you should drink rice water, especially in the summer.
  1. Effectively treats symptoms of viral infections
You should also know that rice water is often used as a natural remedy for fever, because it restores lost nutrients and loss of fluids. The rice water will accelerate the healing process and the patient will recover much faster.

  1. Rice water relieves symptoms of diarrhea
Rice water turns out to be an amazing home solution for treating diarrhea.  You should also know that it’s completely safe for children, even newborns, who are more susceptible to stomach discomforts.  A recent study has found that rice water can effectively relieve the symptoms of diarrhea in infants
  1. Prevents Cancer
You should also know that if you drink rice water more often, your organism will be much more powerful to fight against many ailments – even cancer. This means that rice water can prevent cancer.
  1. Prevents Alzheimer
A recent study has found that drinking cooked rice water can prevent the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease. This is also one of the other great advantages of drinking cooked rice water.
  1. Protection from Sun
Rice water contains high amounts of the compound – oryzanol. This powerful substance prevents the harmful UV beams from the sun. Use rice water to offer your skin some assistance with taking the sun’s heat.
How to make rice water:
You just have to follow the simple instructions. Here’s what you need to do – you just have to boil the rice in some fresh water. After it’s cooked well, strain the water in a separate container. Enjoy your rice water. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.

Train Your Brain To Stop Worrying With THESE 3 Simple Habits

Worrying is something that most of us are guilty of. While a little bit of worry can be constructive, most of the time it becomes detrimental to your peace of mind. Constant worrying can end up affecting your health in many negative ways. Chronic worriers can develop problems with anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Constantly being plagued with thoughts can also effect your daily productivity. It causes you to become distracted and unable to focus. If you are a worrier, you probably know it. You may feel the draining effects of your thoughts on a daily basis. And chances are, your friends and family members often use phrases such as “you worry too much” or “relax” which usually makes you feel worse.
From someone on the outside looking in, constant worrying might seem pointless. But for those who struggle with being able to quiet their minds, letting go of their worries is much easier said than done.

Here’s how to train your brain to stop worrying:

1. Write Things Down

If you can’t sleep at night because something is nagging at you, try writing it down. You might be laying in bed when you suddenly remember that the electric bill is due tomorrow, or that a friend’s birthday is in a few days. If you’re like me, you might constantly conjure up to-do lists in your head. Whatever it is that you’re worrying about, take a minute to grab a pen and a piece of paper and write it down. Or make a note in your phone if that’s more convenient.

Writing it out will help allow your brain to relax. You’ll no longer have to spend energy worrying and trying to remember things.

2. Meditate

People practice meditation for many different reasons. Some want to become more in tune with themselves while others want to become more in tune with nature. Some meditate to create an open mind while others rely on meditation to slow things down and help relieve stress and anxiety. Have you ever wondered if it really works? Researchers at John Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland sifted through nearly 19,000 meditation studies and found evidence that mindful meditation can help easy psychological stresses such as anxiety, depression and pain. If you’re a worry wart, meditation might be able to help.

3. Exercise

Have you ever heard someone say that exercising is a great way to relieve stress? According to science, it’s true! Research has shown that exercise has an effect on serotonin in the brain (the “happy” brain chemical), and it also reduces the effects of oxidative stress. Studies have shown that exercise actually remodels the brain, making it more resistant to stress. If running isn’t your thing, try lifting weights. If that doesn’t work for you, try boxing, hiking or swimming. Choose an exercise routine that you enjoy and make it a regular part of your day to stop you worries from becoming overwhelming.

10 Year Study Links Diet Soda To THESE Deadly Diseases!

Diet soda is one of the biggest marketing scams of all time. Just think about it. Soda manufacturers are charging more for a product that’s worse for you, all the while convincing millions of Americans it’s a healthier option.
A recently-concluded study from the University of Iowa hits home just how big of a travesty the whole thing is.
The study, spearheaded by Dr. Ankur Vyas, involved nearly 60,000 participants over a 9+ year period. The goal was to pinpoint the effects of aspartame, the artificial sweetener that replaces sugar in diet drinks.
Researchers pinpointed the effects, alright. Turns out, they’re nothing short of terrifying.

The Study’s Findings

Drink two or more diet sodas daily, researchers found, and you’ll increase your risk of a cardiovascular event by 30%. You will also increase your risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease by 50%.
These statistics prevailed even after researchers adjusted their data to account for other risk factors like age, BMI, smoking and physical activity.
As Dr. Vyas aptly puts it, “This could have major public health implications.”
How major? Well, 1 in 5 Americans drink diet soda every day. That’s 17% of the entire population, or more than 5 million people. That’s how major.

How Aspartame Causes Cardiovascular Disease

Based on the modern scientific principle (correlation ≠ causation), the University of Iowa study does not draw a definite link between aspartame and cardiovascular disease. Luckily, though, there’s a sea of other medical knowledge we can draw on to find the link.

For one, as Dr. Mercola reports, when a pregnant woman consumes aspartame she greatly increases her child’s risk of obesity. Obesity, of course, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular illness.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, aspartame poses a whole laundry list of other health risks, including:
  • Hyperactivity
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Anxiety
  • Aggression
  • Personality changes
  • Abdominal pain
  • Difficulty managing diabetes
  • Seizures
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • ALS
Look at it this way. 75% of all food complaints the FDA receives each year are in regards to aspartame. If you’re going to drink soda (which you really shouldn’t) stick to the regular variety.

This Is How To Find Out Who’s Tracking You Through Your Smartphone

As technology advances, criminals are right there with it, keeping up. Unfortunately, it’s pretty simple for someone to hack into your computer or smart phone, if you aren’t careful. Safety should always be a top priority. There are  several codes you can use to find out more about the settings on your phone, to find out whether or not your messages and personal information are protected. If your information isn’t protected, it’s possible that you’re being tracked.

Use these codes to find out who’s tracking you through your smartphone:


This code can help you find out whether or not your calls and messages are being diverted. You’ll be able to see the status of different types of diversions that are taking place. If you use this code, the number the information is being transferred to will be displayed on your screen.


If you want to find out where your calls, messages and data are being redirected to, dial this code. If it seems that no one can ever get through to you on your cell phone, it may be because your voice calls are being redirected to one of your cell phone operator’s numbers.


You can use this code to switch off all forms of redirection away from your phone. Use this code before you need to use roaming for any reason. It can help stop criminals from taking money away from your account for calls that are redirected to your voicemail by default.


Use this code to find out what your IMEI is. IMEI is international mobile equipment identifier If you know this number, you can find your phone in the event that someone steals it. When your phone is turned on, the location is automatically conveyed to the network operator, even if a different SIM card is inserted.

The James Bond Code

Certain codes allow other people to track your location. If you want to know if someone is following you, use these codes:
For iPhone: *3001#12345#
For Android: *#*#4636#*#* or *#*#197328640#*#*
  1. Go to the section called UMTS Cell Environment, then UMTS RR info. Write down all the numbers listed under Cell ID. These numbers are the stations located nearby. Your phone will connect to the one that emits the best signal.
  2. Go back to the main menu and click on the MM info tab, then click on Serving PLMN. Write down the numbers listed under LAC or Local Area Code.
  3. Use these two numbers and an ordinary website (the fourth tab to the left) to determine the location on the map of the basic station your phone is connected to.
  4. Pay attention to the mobile basic stations. This could be a truck with one large antenna. If you see one nearby without any logical reason, it’s possible that is spying.

How To Protect Yourself From Criminals

  • Use anti-virus software.
  • Use messaging apps that are closed to outsiders, such as  TelegramChareWickr or Signal.
  • Be careful about the information you message to others.
  • Don’t install unknown programs on your phone.

How To Deal With Painful Breakups, According To A Modern Indian Sage

Life is filled with continual relationships. Beginning at birth and to the moment we die we move from one relationship to the next. From our first contact with mother and perhaps father, to siblings and blood relatives, to friends and lovers and to co-workers and casual acquaintances. These relationships span from extremely intimate to very casual.
With so much experience in relationships you would think that we would be well equipped to create successful and meaningful relationships easily, but instead it seems the opposite. The truth is that most of us struggle within relationships but even more so when we try to end them, especially if it has been an intimate or a long-term relationship.

Divorce and Suffering

Divorce rates are at an all time peak. So, the social stigma of divorce carried even just 50 years ago has dramatically decreased, yet there is often so much pain and suffering for both parties involved. The typical support groups and family counselors are readily available for guidance and solace, but still, deep pain and loss seems the inevitable.

Can’t Let Go

Why is it that relationships are often so hard to get over? We continue to remember and relive certain moments long after they are past. Even when a break up is mutually agreed upon, there is pain, both psychological pain and also sometimes even physical pain that sticks like a piece of gum to your shoe. It’s ugly. It’s dirty. And it just won’t come off.
Why is it so hard to let a relationship go?
How often do we let our experience of a relationship become ugly, hanging on and on, treating each other poorly and causing misery for ourselves and those around us?
And yet we stay.
Building a case on blaming the “other” before we finally (if ever) make a change.

How to Move Forward

Within our lifetime we go through the ending of many relationships either by choice or because of death or just in the process of moving on in life. What is the best way to go through this for our greatest well-being?
Is there some other way to go through a divorce or a break up without all the suffering?
Modern day thought leader, Sadhguru offers insight on the nature of relationships and why dissolving or breaking them seems so hard to do. Here’s how we can handle this process gracefully and move forward more effortlessly with grace.

7 Clear Signs a Narcissist Is Trying To Manipulate You

When it comes to the types of people in our lives who are simply not good for us, narcissist manipulators rank among the top most toxic of all. They’re the individuals who care only about themselves and who stop at nothing to get exactly what they want. As such, a narcissist will always selfishly place their own needs, desires, and emotions first when making decisions and they won’t think twice about using people for their own advantage. They are relentless in their quest for personal power and success which is why they’re so manipulative, deceitful, and bad to be around.
If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having to deal with a manipulative narcissist then you should be well aware of just how exploitative and driven they can be. By knowing their tactics and how they operate, you can counteract the negative effects of their behavior and protect yourself. Here are 7 ways in which narcissists manipulate and use others to their advantage:
1. They Play the Victim.
Narcissists love playing mind games and pretending to be a victim is one of their favorites. They get more attention and pity from others when they lead them to believe they are sick, in trouble, or need help. When you feel sorry for them you’re more likely want to help them out, and that’s exactly what they want. They also use this tactic as a way to justify or excuse their terrible behavior. Also, by turning your focus away from all the negative, deceitful things they’ve done, they make you less guarded and therefore more open to even more manipulation on their end.
2. They Use Aggression and Intimidation.
One thing that all narcissists use is scare tactics. They employ everything from subtle, underhand threats to overt physical violence in order to bully others into giving in and bending to their will. More often than not the intimidation is psychological and emotional in nature. They might keep you from seeing family and friends or always put you down and verbally assault you because it makes them feel dominant and in control.

3. They Downplay Your Accomplishments.
When you first meet a narcissist they often hide their true colors and come off as actually quite charming. They compliment and build you up just so they can tear you down later. When that happens it’s as if a switch gets suddenly flipped and all of those kind words go out the door. They will devalue your accomplishments and pride so that you work extra hard to regain their favor and please them.
4. They Guilt You Into Thinking Everything is Your Fault.
They blame you for all of their bad behavior along with all of the trouble and repercussions it brings with it. No matter what the facts or situation may be, it’s inevitably your fault.
5. They Only Talk About Themselves.
It’s a dead give away you’re dealing with a narcissist when all that the person talks about is anything and everything related to them. They have nothing good to say about anything else and can drone on endlessly about themselves. When you do finally get a word in and switch the topic, they will steer the focus right back to them as if they didn’t even hear a word you said in the first place.
6. They Use Triangulation.
This is when a narcissist, you, and one other person are all involved in a triangular mind game of sorts. The other person is brought in by the narcissist after they have been led to believe that you are in the wrong or the problem. Basically, by pitting you and a third party against each other the heat is taken off the narcissist, as is any blame, and they get off scot-free. The other person will also stand up for and support them and this feeds right into their need to be liked and perceived as right all the time.
7. They Never Change.
Once a narcissist, always a narcissist. They will continue to act shallow, manipulate, and deceitful until the day they die. There is no medicine or cure for them, therapy is ineffective as well. Their issues are rooted deep in their minds and ingrained in their personalities. Even after you’ve removed them from your life, they will simply move on to their next unsuspecting victim and start ruining their life.

5 Behaviours Show That You Are Reaching A Higher Level Of Consciousness!

How do we know when we’re getting it?

If there’s one thing we know beyond any doubt, it’s that all of life is an evolutionary process. Everything, from the smallest particle in existence to the universe as a whole is in the process of evolution. Immutability is the only truth. Expansion is the point. The only question is whether or not it’s happening consciously or unconsciously. As is the case with any pursuit — whether athletic, intellectual, or spiritual — certain signs will begin to show up after a particular amount of practice has been put in, and they will come out, as they should, in your behaviour. If they don’t, then you haven’t condensed the full understanding yet– the concept has not made its way fully to the level of action.

While there is, in reality, no actual ‘higher’ level of consciousness (this is an egoic idea based on comparison) there are, undoubtedly, different modes of seeing the world, resulting, of course, in different modes of being in the world– modes of being that open us up to more relaxation, harmony and balance, even as the external world continues on in the manner it always has. There has been an inner shift.

How do we know when we’re getting it? Here are 5 behaviours that show you are reaching a higher level of consciousness.


Once you begin waking up, negativity becomes far more noticeable, particularly when it arrives in the form of gossip. It no longer has the power to seduce you the way it once did. You can hear the self-seeking in it– the judgement and unconscious need to feel superior on the part of the one doing the gossiping, and the power of the gravity it has to pull others in. The difference between someone stating facts, for a reason, and someone blowing hot-air in service of their ego is quite clear, and you slowly find yourself participating in it less and less.


The difference between short-term and long-term gratification starts to reveal itself. Certain things that make you feel ‘good’ in the present moment (as with the habit of gossiping) don’t lead to a happier mind-set in the long run, and you begin to realize this. The pointlessness of everything from worrying (as opposed to thinking constructively) to over-eating to watching television that has a negative effect on the mind begins to come clear, and you start simply leaving these habits behind.


You get more done. You’re simply more effective than you once were, because you’re more present. You’re not resenting the moment or thinking about what you should or shouldn’t be doing, you’re just doing what needs to be done, and doing it well. There is an inner sense of ‘play’ that accompanies most things, alleviating stress and bringing more joy to yourself, and others around you.


The need to ‘prove’ oneself begins to diminish. Because the tendency to compare everything (looks, income, skill level) has lessened, whatever task you have at hand becomes more clear– even the task of life itself. Because there is less of a need to “win”, co-operation begins to show up instead, and you realize that in the act of helping others you are also helping yourself.


Following on the last point, though you don’t stop pursuing goals, you are less focused on the ‘happiness’ their completion will provide you with, and instead find yourself appreciating many of the little things you only took as stepping stones before. You begin to see much of what’s right with world, along with what’s wrong with it, and this gratitude grants you the energy and vision to continue the work of ‘correcting’ both it, and yourself.
