Sex positions you should definitely try Comments Off on Sex positions you should definitely try 309,992

Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I definitely speak for most when I say that sex is a sensitive subject regardless of whom you’re doing it with. Having sex with just one person can get boring eventually, the initial fire gradually dies down and sex starts becoming a chore. When this happens, you need something to breathe life back into your relationship. This means exploring and trying out new things in the bedroom. Relax, I don’t mean buying a gallon of lube or buying the Kamasutra, nothing that adventurous… yet. When I mean explore, I mean trying new sex positions.

This might sound crazy, but I’m telling you, a little pleasure doesn’t hurt anybody. Exploring is not for everybody and that’s ok. Some people aren’t wired that way, however, if you want that spark back then you should definitely try some of these sex positions.

The bridge

A true sex position from the pages of the Kamasutra. It requires lying down from the ground and pushing your torso up from the ground and holding it at the level where he can penetrate. This position requires a lot of flexibility and strength, so don’t be bummed out if you and your partner can only maintain the bridge for a couple of seconds. This move is one of the more adventurous moves, and it gives you an excuse to show him how athletic you are.

The piledriver

This sex position sounds and looks painful doesn’t it? Sounds like a pro-wrestling move or something. Well, it’s the exact opposite. This position eliminates all the space between you two and ensures maximum penetration. Don’t worry, it’s not as boring as it sounds. Believe me, you’re in for a roller coaster. This position, much like the first one, requires a degree of flexibility on both parts. But unlike the first one, it doesn’t require a lot strength. This position is a bit on the wild side, so I would recommend you pace yourself.

High knee

The high knee is a simple, yet exciting sex position. You’ll feel kind of silly that you didn’t think of it before. It involves you and your partner getting on your knees in a comfortable position. You both lift a knee so that his left knee is raised while your right is raised. Then you just both go to town on each other. The high knee is best when done on a bed. You don’t want your knees to get tired or bruised mid-sex. 

X marks the spot

This position starts out by laying back on a horizontal surface, then he penetrates from the vagina. It’s called X marks the spot because the legs are crossed as he penetrates. This position can be done on virtually any surface. The bed, table, countertop, take your pick. 

The high chair position

This position is my favorite on this list. You just get to sit down and let him pound. This position is fantastic through the vagina and even better with anal. The angle of this position facilitates the perfect entry. It’s unlike a lot of generic positions will get you there.

Reverse cowgirl

This is a treat for the guy; the reverse cowgirl is just the cowgirl in reverse. Instead of looking into his eyes as you ride him, he will be staring at your ass while you rock him. The best thing about cowgirl positions is the control it brings. These kinds of positions allow you to control the depth and speed. Something that makes the experience totally different.

Woman lying on top

This position holds a special place in my heart. I like to sometimes call it the ‘inverted doggy-style.’ It involves the man lying under and you laying on him as he keeps your thighs closed and trust upward. You should try to keep your legs together throughout. This tightness puts extra pressure on the clitoris and that’s where you want all the extra friction to go.

Doggy-style oral

No traverse into the unknown is complete without covering all the bases. Oral sex is what lays the groundwork for a proper orgasm and it’s the most important part of foreplay, but enough of that… let’s describe the position. You start off by getting in the doggy-style position and then you let him go down on you from that angle.

These positions are a combination of weird, flexible, and unconventional. They are bound to put the spark back in your relationship. You don’t necessarily need to have a slow sex life with your partner to try this out, you can even try them out just cause you want to. These positions don’t even begin to scratch the surface of great sexual positions, there are numerous others out there and I suggest you go go after it.

How a simple detox can boost brainpower Comments Off on How a simple detox can boost brainpower 193,256

You know that one person who’s always talking about the latest cleanse or trendy detox and how “life-changing” it is. It’s almost guaranteed that within a few days, they’ll be on to the next one. Who doesn’t want to lose weight, improve endurance, and purge toxins? It’s not surprising to see short term physical benefits from detox, but often not mentioned are the mental health and cognitive performance benefits also gained from a proper detox. Mental health and brainpower benefits are significant.

Anxiety. Insomnia. Depression. Dementia. Eating disorders. Even Alzheimer’s is on the rise. While going on a short term cleanse or detox to help treat any disorder might seem counterintuitive, restoring your body to health both mentally and physically can drastically boost your mood and overall disposition. The glow of positivity from improved self-image helps interpersonal relationships as well.

Is a detox right for me?

Grow new brain cells

  • Most detox diets are significantly low in calories which may help boost Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). This chemical signal in the brain promotes new cellular growth.
  • As a result, it may lead to a number of mental health benefits including improved brain health and functioning, as well as to help stave off mental illnesses. There are some great BDNF studies available online.

Enhance focus and concentration

  • Another benefit one can attain from slightly restricting calories during a detox is the increase in focus. This is thought to come from a mechanism known as “food-seeking behavior.”
  • The mechanism involved has to do with a rise in hormone production. Dopamine, adrenaline, and cortisol boost focus and reduce distractions. Along with helping to block out distractions, a detox can also help keep your mind focused on tasks. This can help boost productivity in an academic setting or in the workplace, as well as helping to accomplish tasks at home that require efficiency and critical thinking. Additionally, it also may help improve focus and intensity during sports and other physical activities.
  • Certain supplements called nootropics help boost brain function even further by promoting increased blood circulation, stimulation of the central nervous system, and stimulating new brain pathways.

Increase blood flow to the brain

  • Detox diets can boost brainpower through PGC-1-Alpha. This multi-faceted signal assists in a wide range of bodily functions including increased blood flow to the brain improved blood circulation and supplied nutrients and oxygen.
  • This effect is quite beneficial to cognitive health.

Boost mood and good vibes

  • High levels of vitamins and minerals consumed in certain detox treatments boost mood and good vibes by producing serotonin and dopamine.
  • Processed foods, refined sugar, and other food-like products may cause mood swings, feelings of lethargy, energy crashes, and other unpleasant symptoms that may lead to malnutrition.
  • Nutrient deficiencies should be addressed in order to promote overall healthy body function.

No more brain fog!

Improve brainpower, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills

  • This should come as no surprise. High-nutrient, low-calorie foods can greatly improve cognitive functioning.
  • Eliminating nutrient-deficient foods will lift “brain fog” caused by poor diets.
  • Clearer thought processes and faster decision-making skills may be felt almost immediately after commencing a detox.

Improve brain-signaling

  • Hydration is always important. And increasing water intake is usually an aspect of many detox plans. Proper hydration enhances overall health, and greater hydration levels can lead to improved brain-signaling.
  • It goes without saying that water is important for all living things, and it’s especially true for living organisms that are made up of mostly water. In the human body, 73% of the heart and brain is water. This is why dehydration has a direct effect on cognitive performance.

Prevent mental illness

  • Aside from boosting mood and good vibes, assisting in the growth of new brain cells, and improving cognitive performance, a detox can also help prevent mental illness.
  • Brain matter growth can help prevent illnesses like depression or bipolar disorder from developing.
  • An increase in nutrients can help reduce anger and may help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. With the rise of mental illnesses, it’s worth trying different methods every now and then to see what works best for you.

Prevent cellular breakdown

  • A detox diet can help reduce inflammation in the body. This helps prevent cellular breakdown and promote healthy cells (which, obviously, helps overall health). This is true for all the body’s cells, including those in the brain.
  • Implementing a regular detox may not only help promote the growth of new brain cells but also help protect the cells you have, which can preserve and further boost brain function.

Forget diets! These simple adjustments can improve your health. Comments Off on Forget diets! These simple adjustments can improve your health. 228,073

Diets shouldn’t suck! It’s easy to get caught up in fad diets that leave you feeling worse than before. On the bright side, you can better your health and lose weight by making small changes. These changes will prove to be more successful than jumping into a new diet all at once. Eat what you want and still be healthy by trying these simple adjustments for huge results! 

The Way of Whole Grain 

Let’s be honest… pasta is the best dish ever. Unfortunately, it’s packed with carbs that don’t help when trying to eat healthier. Instead, try whole-grain pasta! Whole grain pasta not only has fewer carbs, but it also has more protein, fiber, and vitamins. This protein-packed pasta will have you turning down seconds and feeling healthier in no time. 

No Fried Food Friday

Fried food is another delicious meal that harms our health. Cut back on your fried food intake and realize how much better you feel. It may be hard to stop eating fried food all at once, so try, “No fried food Friday.” By avoiding fried food one day a week, you’ll feel healthier and realize you can accomplish anything! 

Small Plate, Please

Portion control is a huge factor in your eating habits. It also makes the largest difference when trying to enhance your well-being. Start eating off smaller plates to trick your mind into thinking you’re eating the same amount of food. If you’re eating out and don’t have this option, ask for a to-go box when you receive your plate. By putting half the meal in the to-go box before you even start eating, you’ll avoid eating too much and have leftovers for tomorrow! These simple swaps ensure you don’t overeat while still enjoying the foods you love.

Effortless modifications to your usual meals will significantly improve your health. Diets cause you to hate what you’re eating, which leads to you quitting the diet in a matter of days. Easy adjustments are the best way to live healthier and happier.
