Home Health Nutrition Nutrition oi-Neha Ghosh By Neha Ghosh on September 18, 2018 A full freezer is only useful if it's stocked with foods that can help you prepare your lunch or dinner quickly. But sometimes it becomes difficult to keep a track of the foods stored in the fridge. Most of us tend to check the foods only when the hunger hits in. So, here we will be discussing 'how long will food last in the freezer?'. What is the importance of freezing foods, if you may ask? Freezing foods is an excellent way to prolong the life of the foods. It is also feasible for those people who are living on a budget because it allows you to stock foods when they are on discounts. However, if you ask about the nutrition of these frozen foods, there can be situations when the freezer foods can catch onto molds, become soft, and lack in nutrition. Though freezing foods slows down the process of them spoiling fast, the foods may deteriorate in nutritional value. Read on to know how long … [Read more...] about How Long Will These 10 Foods Last In The Freezer?

Source: absolutely_free_photos Living forever has been a goal of human beings for as long as anyone can remember. The reason is clear. Once you know you're mortal, you face the finitude of your time. "I'll be here only briefly, so I should make the most of it. I should eat, drink, and be merry. Or, adopting a more sober tone, I should work hard and leave a legacy. Raise a family, build a business, create output that will live on: paintings, sculptures, novels, blogs." No other species is as consciously aware of their own immortality as we humans are, at least as far as we know, though all species behave in ways that tend to keep them or their confreres alive as long as possible. Given the awareness that we humans have of the brevity of our lives, it’s appropriate to look for psychological tools to help us functionally extend the time we have. Step back for a moment to consider the strategies for living long. First, pick parents … [Read more...] about Who Says You Can’t Live a Million Years?
As much as I love living single - and I do - I also recognize that not everyone is as smitten by the single state as I am. Sometimes other singles tell me so in their comments to this blog or in their e-mails to me. Fellow Psychology Today bloggers have had their say, too. Jenna Baddeley, for instance, has written about her single friends who are not in a romantic relationship and who wonder, "What's wrong with me?" As long as there is singlism (stereotyping and stigmatizing of singles), there will be challenges to living single, and some - such as getting excluded from social events simply because you are not part of a couple - can be truly painful. I'll talk more about that in a later post. Today, though, I want to start a discussion of the question: What does age have to do with it? Often (though not always), the singles who wish they were coupled, and wonder what is holding them back, are in their early adult years - 20s, maybe early 30s. Sometimes I discern an underlying fear … [Read more...] about Living Single: Are the Early Adult Years the Hardest? Part I
She storms into the living room, basket full of wet laundry on her hip. He can tell from the look on her face that she’s not happy, and his stomach sinks as he remembers the load of clothes he forgot to move to the dryer several days before. She starts in. “You are so selfish — you always do whatever you want to do and leave all the work for me. You never think about anyone but yourself!” Source: Roman Kosolapov/Shutterstock In our relationships, we often feel torn between loving our partners well and standing up for ourselves. In our efforts to be heard and meet our needs, we can rely on communication strategies that hurt both our partners and relationships. Through his research on relationship health and marriage, Dr. John Gottman of the Gottman Institute has been able to identify several communication strategies that are not only unhelpful, but can also predict separation and divorce if unchanged. One of these harmful … [Read more...] about Five Keys to Good Communication During Conflict
Do you sometimes feel like social media political conversations are being conducted at gunpoint? Source: William Tung/Wikimedia Commons If you are worried about the tone and intensity of political conflict in the world today, Adam Grant's recent New York Times op-ed ("Kids, Would You Please Start Fighting?") might ease your mind a bit. You might even come away thinking that, if we manage to survive it, all this political wrangling might just make us stronger. And that might well be. But one might also be forgiven for thinking, to the contrary, that too much of our current discourse runs afoul of his main caveat. Grant is pro-verbal-conflict. He argues that arguing is good for us. He argues that, if we argue vigorously with each other, we might produce more creative solutions to problems. After all, Orville and Wilbur Wright argued with each other all the time, and they invented powered human flight. The way Orville tells it, their arguments were downright fun and charming: … [Read more...] about Kids, Would You Please Lower Your Weapons?
