My Unforgettable Yatra

Vacations are an excellent way to refresh ourselves from the burden and stresses of everyday life. You feel nourished, fresh and vibrant after a relaxed vacation.
The husband works in the Gulf and the holiday season is in July and August. The air over the UAE is filled with travel, shopping and all the preparations associated with it. The International Flights are fully packed and are non-stop. There are massive discounts in the shopping malls, and the crowds throng these places for their last minute purchases.

Writing this post, I am re-living all these wonderful memories. We usually go from Dubai to Goa where my husband’s family is put up and then we fly by domestic airlines to Chennai.
Goa is a paradise in these months there is lots of rain, and the weather is cold, compared to the 47-48 degree Celsius in the Gulf where the summer is at its peak. So people just escape this terrible heat by traveling to cooler destinations.
Goa has got many amazing places for you to visit. This lan…

5 Health Hacks of Marine Collagen

“Beauty is God’s handwriting”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
A well-nourished skin is the canvas of beauty. Collagen is important for the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. As we age the collagen production declines leading to wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.
Collagen is full of amino acids like arginine, glycine, glutamine and proline. These non-essential amino acids are pretty darn important for your health. When these amino acids are reduced, supplementation works wonders.
Marine Collagen is an ode to the women who never surrenders their beauty to the sands of time. In this article, we will discuss the beauty benefits of marine collagen.
So what is marine collagen?
It is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales of the skin of saltwater fish like cod and salmon. Scientific literature says that marine collagen possesses medicinal properties and can enhance our optimal wellness. The marine collagen supplements are considered safe, and no side effects have been reported so far. So g…

Research shows us that physical fitness is directly linked to children’s brain development. This link is the cornerstone that leads to their success.

Scientists have found an association between physical fitness and brain development. The kids who are fitter tend to have a bigger hippocampus, and they perform well on memory tests compared to their less-fit peers.

The hippocampus is tucked deep in the brain and is associated with memory and learning. A bigger hippocampus is associated with better performance on spatial reaso…
