Home Women Women oi-Lekhaka By Deepannita Das on March 8, 2021 It's been years and still, we celebrate International Women's Day but while some believe that it has resulted due to a feminist cause, only a handful of us know that this day is traced back to the labour movement in Germany. It was in 1911 when the first-ever Women's Day was organised by Clara Zetkin, a German Marxist theorist, and an advocate for women rights. Cut to the present, today, 8 March marks International Women's Day and this year's theme is Choose To Challenge. Well, we all have amazing women around us who have made this world a better place to live in- be it women leaders or entrepreneurs. B R Ambedkar once said, 'I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.' On this extraordinary day, five women have come forward to share their journeys and experiences which will motivate you to the core to build a … [Read more...] about International Women’s Day 2021: Quotes From Women Leaders And Entrepreneurs That Will Inspire You

With a pandemic at peak levels, online school, canceled activities, political upheavals, and other major stressors, it’s no wonder our day-to-day mindset may be more pessimistic than usual. You can thank evolution for a bias toward the negative Social scientists hypothesize that we are wired to focus more on negative events than equivalent positive ones because doing so helps us survive. Imagine yourself hiking down a hilly, rocky trail. Fixating on a potentially lethal rock slide, rather than a beautiful migration of geese overhead, certainly increases the odds of you reaching your destination safely. The problem with having this negative bias is that it can impact your health physically and mentally. It may sow fear , limit your potential, and keep you from living a full life. Of the myriad problems correlated with a negative … [Read more...] about Can Optimism Reduce Your Eating Disorder Symptoms?
Anyone can have trouble controlling their anger from time to time. You may be frustrated because you’ve just made a huge mistake in a big project and have to start again from scratch. Perhaps you’re stuck in a long commute and will be an hour late getting home. You might be angry at a relative who just won’t back off from demanding your time and attention . All of these are situations that can lead anyone to yell out in rage, if only at the fates. How about people you know who chronically seem ready to explode with little or no provocation? What kinds of situations arouse them to higher and higher levels of fury, or are they always on the verge of exploding over nothing? And when they release their anger, what happens next? They’ve yelled at their partner over practically nothing, and now the partner walks out the door, annoyed and disgusted at being treated in such a rude and offensive manner. This rejection only inspires even more of their outrage. Why might anger be such … [Read more...] about A New Way to Think About the Angriest People in Your Life
Source: Photo Copyrights owned by Nootralize A nootropic is a substance that, if used properly, safely enhances the cognitive functions of the user. As public interest in cognitive enhancers escalates, the demand for high-quality evidence on the safety and efficacy of nootropics seems to outgrow the supply of that information. Although new placebo -controlled studies are published frequently, they can be hard to read and misrepresentative of the entire body of knowledge the scientific community has provided on the effects of nootropics. These are some of the reasons why we systematically went through 527 placebo-controlled studies  on the effects of 127 nootropics. All of the human participants in these studies were healthy. Out of the 527 studies, 36 included measures of mood. A total of 2,665 participants had their mood tested, and 13 nootropics were assessed for safety and efficacy for improving mood. Based on this body of evidence, these are some of the most … [Read more...] about 5 Nootropics for Mood in Healthy People
This global pandemic leaves no aspect of our lives untouched, and that includes our sex lives. Porn usage during the pandemic has dramatically increased, with Pornhub reporting a sharp increase in traffic. OnlyFans has seen a 75% bump in traffic as well. It’s no wonder I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about how porn usage impacts sexual partners IRL. I recently surveyed my 50,000-plus audience on Instagram , asking, “How is the pandemic affecting your sexual desire?” About 40% reported that they are “feeling frisky” and about 60% reported an “erotic nosedive.” While this is far from empirical research, what these responses indicate to me is that, when it comes to surviving a global crisis, anything goes. That’s why we need to be curious, not critical, about whatever is happening to your sexuality (or your partner’s) during this time. These spikes in porn usage are likely fueled by many factors: If the pandemic is spiking one partner’s libido and tanking … [Read more...] about How Couples Can Talk About Porn, and Why They Should
