Top Ten Foods that get you in the Mood!

Tags

, , , ,

Making someone laugh, being physically attractive and intellectually stimulating are all things we associate with turning someone on but new research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK and Ireland’s largest married dating site, shows that food can be more arousing than any of these. On a first date, good food is almost twice as important as the date’s sense of humour.

500 members on Illicit Encounters were asked ‘what’s the most important thing on a first date?’ The top five answers were as follows:

  • 1)My food is good (32%)
  • 2)My date has a good sense of humour (20%)
  • 3)I look attractive (18%)
  • 4)My date looks attractive (12%)
  • 5)The conversation is intellectually stimulating (10%)

Dietician Nadine Walters said food is so important because it stimulates more of the senses (taste, smell, sight and hearing) than conversation (hearing) or physical presentation (sight and maybe touch). This is a list of her top ten aphrodisiacs and why they turn you on:

  • 1) Chocolate – “Large quantities of chocolate can lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar and a consequent drop below normal levels resulting in fatigue,” Walters said “But cocoa contains phenyl ethylamine, a stimulant that conjures feel-good emotions that makes you feel like getting close to someone and think sex is a fabulous idea.”

  • 2) Red wine – “We all know that alcohol helps you relax and unwind, but red vino contains resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant which helps blood flow and improves circulation before sex which makes you more sensitive.”

  • 3) Asparagus and avocados – “These super-healthy vegetables contain Vitamin E which helps your body produce hormones like oestrogen, testosterone and progesterone, all which circulate in your bloodstream and stimulate sexual responders like the clitoris and the vagina.”athens-plants-284
  • 4) Chilies – “Not only do they boost energy, improve memory and even fight fat, they also contain capsaicin, a chemical which boosts circulation to get blood pumping and stimulates nerve endings, which means you’ll feel turned on. Result!”

  • 5) Oysters – “Perhaps the notion of gooey wobbly shellfish being an aphrodisiac is a bit hard to imagine but they’re brimming with zinc, a mineral which increases the production of testosterone, which increases your sex drive.”

  • 6) Bananas – “They give you potassium, a key nutrient to strength, which means when you orgasm, the contractions are very intense.”

  • 7) Pomegranates – “Full of antioxidants, they protect the lining of blood vessels, and improve circulation, which means increased genital sensitivity.”

  • 8) Walnuts – “They’re full of omega-3 fatty acids, which keep sex-hormone production high. Salmon, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sardines and beef also contain omega-3 fatty acids.”

  • 9) Vanilla – “This sweet bean stimulates nerves and makes sexual sensation feel even better.”

  • 10) Watermelon – “This juicy fruit contains phytonutrient citrulline – this leads to an increase in nitric oxide in your body, which causes blood vessels to relax and speed up circulation. What does all this mean? You’ll get more aroused faster.”

Spring Clean

Tags

, , , , , ,

It’s Spring! Yay! Flowers are blossoming, birds are singing, and life is well and truly beginning! Wow, I’m full of happiness and charm today. So ready for a change in season. As of the 20th of March we are officially in Spring – that only calls for one thing: A Spring Clean!

An old tradition that begs the phrase, out with the old in with the new! It’s time to bring your house in order and start packing up all those winter belongings. I tend to follow a certain way of organizing myself this time of year, and I thought I would share it with you.

1. Firstly, begin by organizing the clutter that is visible. Does everything look slightly misplaced at the moment? Box it! Find a place for everything that is looking rather disorderly at the moment. I usually begin with cosmetics and toiletries here then when I’m working on the kids rooms the next thing to go is the toys- throw away stuff that isn’t used, and sort out the things you want to keep. Don’t be sentimental, be strict with what needs to go!

2. Now it’s time for the big clean. Arm yourself with with cleaning supplies and rubber gloves and get rid of any dirt or dust that seems to have made itself at home. Go forth and clean!

3. Cupboards! This may seem like something you can put off – but believe me you will seriously thank yourself for tidying in places you can’t see. Take everything out you have stored throw out what you don’t need, replace what you do.

3. Organize your paperwork. Your study seems to have gone through it’s own World War Three and it’s high time you get your things in order. Now that your things have all been put away neatly, you can focus on the mountain pile of letters, envelopes, loose notes and diaries.

4. Clothes! This is the fun part – go through wardrobes and see what you have outgrown and outworn and pack it up to be sent to the closest charity shop. Once you have determined what goes and what stays – you can then begin packing up your winter coats into storage, and get your spring/summer collection out.

5. Clean! I know we’ve already done this, but go over the house one last time. Focusing particularly on surfaces, floors, windows and doors :) This doesn’t need to be as intense as step one, but it’s always worth going around one last time to make sure everything really is spick and span.

6. You’ve worked so hard, your muscles are aching, your hairs in knots and your pretty sure you now permanently smell of bleach. Go have a shower, get yourself looking your best and go pick up some home decor to add that finishing touch to all your hard work. Get some pretty vases and flowers and put them around the house to brighten each room. Well done you!

7 Steps to Positive Thinking

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Today’s post is all about projecting positivity from the inside out. Usually it is an internal battle that disallows you from seeing things from a positive perspective > spurred on from external influences. In order to begin feeling happier within yourself, you need to train your brain to think a certain way – remembering that you cannot always change your situation but you can begin to learn how to change the way you react to things. The key lesson to learn here is – if you can’t change your circumstance, change your attitude.

Here is a 6 step guide to Positive Thinking!

1. Don’t Indulge Negative Thoughts

If you find yourself feeling hopeless about something, try not to dwell on it. Accept that you are feeling the way you are and try to find an immediate solution on how to make yourself feel better then and there. The first step to progress is acceptance – talk yourself up rationally. If something’s happened to create a feeling of upset, acknowledge that it is a natural feeling for you to feel sad about it, then let it go! You could even say it out loud ‘I know that I am feeling sad about this, I accept that it is normal, I have decided I will not allow myself to continue obsessing – thank you for giving me the strength to let go’

2. Say YES!

Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Rather than thinking ‘I can’t’ say ‘I can.’ If you tell yourself YES with conviction you will begin to believe it. Channel your inner determination and fight to stay motivated.

3. Smile

It is common knowledge that smiling makes you feel instantly better – even if you are forcing yourself to. When I was a fair bit younger I worked in a call center where there were actual signs that said ‘Smile while you dial!’ – when your smiling you will find your body language and tone of voice will change – confidence always peaks when your smiling.

4. Do Something You Enjoy

I know when your not feeling yourself it’s very easy to slot into the thought process that nothing could possibly make you feel happy. Try to refrain from this type of thinking. For example if you aren’t feeling like going to the gym today, force yourself to go – I guarantee you once your doing your favorite yoga class you will be feeling much better that you didn’t just stay indoors sulking.

5. Listen to Music

If your really feeling down, put on a song that will make you happy. Music helps channel and change your emotions! Music is a quick and sure remedy that will help balance out any negative thought.

6. Speak to a Close Friend

The old saying rings true here ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’. Pick up the phone, go meet your friend, you can share whatever it is your feeling and your friend can help you work through it – that’s what friends are for!

7. Tell Yourself You Love Yourself

Say it! Say it now! ‘I Love Myself’ Say it over and over again. In a little while you’ll probably even have a little giggle to yourself – yeah it may sound silly, but your saying it, and you will begin to mean it! I LOVE MYSELF!
