How to avoid the morning madness...

Do you struggle every morning to get the chores done and make it to work on time as well? Here’s how to get it right...


Mornings are rushed, what with finding a suitable work outfit, eating breakfast, getting the kids to school and jumping through the bath – all before 8 a.m. There are things you can do to start the day off on the right foot.

Wake to soothing music
Set a radio alarm on some good music. A screeching alarm gives you a nasty shock and who wants to start the day pumping with adrenaline?

Have breakfast
This sets the tone for your eating for the rest of the day. Without having had breakfast, you probably won't be able to resist the doughnut trolley at
11 a.m. and then you won't be hungry at lunchtime. Get the picture?

Eat something fresh
Have a banana or an apple or at least some fruit juice. Starting the day in a healthy way is good for body and soul. Eating fresh fruit is always better for you than drinking a multivitamin.

Prepare the night before
Scurrying around at
7 a.m. frantically looking for the shirt that goes with the skirt you want to wear, is no fun. Especially if you find it in the unironed pile or in the bottom of the washing basket.

Drink water
Many people are slightly dehydrated in the mornings – after all, you have spent seven or eight hours without drinking any water.

Are you on the rebound?

If your ex is your main topic of conversation, it's a strong sign that you are not over this relationship yet.

No one likes being dumped - or for that matter doing the dumping. The end of any relationship always means upheaval or turmoil of some kind, whether you're moving house, lost lots of possessions, a pet or two or the love of your life. These are not easy times.

Especially if you're left high and dry, feeling about as unattractive as a station flowerpot, and quite convinced no one will ever look at you again. Be careful - you are excellent rebound material! So what are the signs that you may be on the rebound?

Indecent haste
Your ex has hardly left - in fact, she/he still has to come and fetch half their stuff, and you're on the prowl again. The mere thought of spending any time on your own is enough to make you come up in hives. And, frankly, at this point, just about anyone will do - as long as it's now. Sad thing though, is that someone else cannot really make the emptiness go away. Only you can do that.

Flattery will work
If someone's halfway nice to you, you immediately see long-term prospects for where this is going. You are also prepared to overlook someone's shortcomings - and at that, someone, whom you would not give a second glance under normal circumstances. A couple of compliments in your direction and you are like putty in his/her hands. Alarm bells should be ringing.

Lowering of standards
If you usually go for people who are educated, good-looking and sophisticated and suddenly you forget all these prerequisites and go for someone simply because they're there and they seem to be interested in you, something is wrong.

The fact that they've never finished reading a book, or can hardly finish a sentence or think Red China is something you should never put on a yellow tablecloth, should be a warning. Don't lower those standards. Many a person has ended up spending a lifetime with someone they thought was a one-night-stand.

Pregnant? What a weigh to grow!

It’s possible to stay in shape if you eat healthy and allow your appetite to guide your food intake.


Weight gain is a normal and healthy part of pregnancy, especially during the second and third trimesters (i.e., the 14th week through the end of pregnancy). Most women gain a normal amount of weight by eating healthy, staying active and allowing their appetite to guide their food intake.
Healthy eating helps ensure that the baby will have a healthy birth weight and will not be born with infections or other problems, reduces the risk for premature birth, builds up fats and fluids for use during breastfeeding, and reduces the risk for complications during pregnancy. It is also important that women continue to eat well after the birth, especially if the baby is breastfeeding.

One night stand!!!!!

Last night was wonderful, but now you’re no longer sure if it’s going to mean more. To read the signs, read on…

The light of day brings both sanity and a good deal of remorse. Your partner from last night has left and you're not sure what happens now. You can feel it from your gut that they do not intend to keep any contact with you. If your head says it indeed was a one night stand but your heart refuses to accept that this is where it ends then here are some signs you need to look out for.

O woe is me

Your partner is remorseful about what they have done and are panicking about the fact that you may tell someone.

Didn't miss a thing
They made very sure they had all their stuff before they left, so they didn't have to come back again.

Off the hook
There never seems to be any answer at the number they gave you. They do not respond to messages.

The breakfast run
They didn't stay for breakfast and hit the road five minutes after they woke up, mumbling something about a meeting.

See you around
Your suggestion of having coffee sometime was met with vague indifference.

On the job
Questions about what they do for a living were skillfully evaded - they don’t want you to contact them at work.

Look the other way
They pretended not to see you when you saw them in the supermarket a week later.

All yours, baby
You phone to tell them that they left a brand new sweatshirt in your flat and they tell you to keep it.

Home alone
The lights and the TV in their flat are on, their car's in the road, but they’re not answering the phone even after you have messaged that you are downstairs and would like to meet them.

Wedded bliss
You see them the next month in front of the coffee shop with what has to be their husband/ wife.

Are you a sex goddess?

So maybe you've never had any complaints, but... how can you really tell if you rate high on the sex-skills scale - or if you still have some tricks to learn? Well, there are some essential signs that back up your bedroom abilities - and they're not as obvious as you might think. Put your between-the-sheets talents to the test.

You've Got the Right Attitude
In the 1970s, famous sexologists Masters and Johnson discovered that sexual pleasure involves the brain as much as the body. They proclaimed sex as "psychophysiological", which basically means that if you've got the right attitude, the physical rewards will be substantial. So what is required to reach the holy grail of sexual satisfaction?

There are three main traits:

  • Knowledge (a solid understanding of how your body and your partner's body work),
  • Experience (practice makes perfect) and
  • An open mind (the ability to let go of inhibitions, not judge and not worry about what you look like).

And of those three, maintaining an open mind is the most crucial.

You'll Try Everything (within Reason) Once

You Play Games

You Make the First Move as Often as Possible

Your Foreplay Lasts Twice as Long as Intercourse

You Put In the Effort

You Laugh Off Any Embarrassments

Making a clean breast of it

Have you always felt that your bustline should have read more on the measuring tape? We help you size up

No, you are not alone in your desire to be better endowed. And there is no need to feel embarrassed or shy about it.

Having a well-filled breast is almost every woman's dream.

More women than ever are going under the knife in an attempt to improve their breasts.

But there is another far less painful way every woman can get the pert breasts she's always wanted. And it's free. Breasts are largely made up of fat globules and fibrous connective tissue. Breasts in fact do not have any muscular tissues and are held by the muscles, which lie between the rib cage. Hence if these muscles, which are called pectorals, are in good shape, then your breasts will get a good cleavage and lift.

Push-ups: Lie on your stomach, bend your knees, and cross your ankles. Bend your elbows and place your palms on the floor a bit to the side and in front of your shoulders. Straighten your arms and lift your body so you're balanced on your palms and knees. Tuck your chin a few inches toward your chest so your forehead faces the floor. Tighten your abdominals. Bend your elbows and lower your entire body at once. Rather than trying to touch your chest to the floor, lower only until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Push back up. Don't lock your elbows at the top of the movement Repeat 10 times. Break for a minute, then do two more repetitions

Flat tyre: Lie down on a mat. Hold one weight in each hand and extended your arms out at shoulder level. Raise both arms straight up together above your body, keeping your elbow slightly bent, so that the weights meet over your chest. Return the weighs out to your sides at shoulder height. Repeat the exercise 13 to 15 times.

Palm Pushes: Press your palms together in front of your breasts. Hold for five seconds, relax. Repeat ten times. Then grasp your forearms at shoulder level and then pull outward without letting go. Repeat ten times.

Sleep Disorder??!!!

You may not even be aware of it, but most of us suffer - or have suffered - from a sleeping disorder at some point in our lives. But only around one sufferer in ten has been diagnosed and offered treatment. This is because today's non-stop lifestyle means people no longer know whether they are suffering from a sleeping problem or are simply just tired. Here, we examine common sleeping disorders.

Sleep paralysis
While we are asleep our body secretes certain hormones which play an important role in relaxing our muscles. This hormone stops us from acting out our dreams and putting ourselves at risk. People experience sleep paralysis when this hormone doesn't wear off fast enough when they wake up. So although conscious, the sleeper can't move any muscles and feels paralysed. However, after several minutes, the paralysis disappears and normal movement returns.

Sleep apnoea
During sleep apnoea, the sufferer will stop breathing for at least ten seconds as they sleep. Someone with severe sleep apnoea is one who doesn't breathe for up to one minute - sometimes as many as 400 times a night. Sleep apnoea in adults is thought to be caused by a blockage of fatty tissues squeezing around the airways around their neck. This often appears as a double chin. Fortunately if you stop breathing for too long, the body is equipped with a self-preservation mechanism where your brain wakes you up in order to make you breathe.

Narcolepsy is a condition where you can fall asleep eating a meal, driving a car or simply walking down the street. Those affected are struck by sudden attacks of sleep during the day. A typical episode lasts from ten minutes to one-and-a-half hours - and a sufferer can experience five to fifteen attacks each day. Although the condition isn't dangerous in itself, narcoleptics experience an irresistible urge to fall asleep without warning.

This can strike while cooking, bathing a baby or driving a car which can lead to a serious disaster. The main triggers of narcolepsy are sudden laughter, anger, surprise or sexual arousement. Restless Leg SyndromeIf you are experiencing aching, cramps, numbness, pain or weakness running down your leg, you could be suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). Symptoms tend to be most severe when sufferers are at rest - and especially when they lie down. Studies show the problem is linked to low levels of dopamine, one of the brain's chemicals responsible for making iron.

Sleep walking is more common in younger children because their brains are still immature and haven't yet learnt to be either fully awake or asleep - which leads to confusion in the brain. Unlike sleep paralysis during which the body is asleep but the mind is awake, during sleepwalking the body is awake and the mind is still asleep.

Sleepwalking occurs when a person oscillates between sleep and wakefulness. They wake up enough to get the reflex parts of the body working such as walking. Sleepwalking can last anywhere from two to five minutes. The worst thing to do if your child is found sleepwalking is to restrain them or wake them up. This could frighten or shock them - and they could become violent. Instead, gently guide them back to bed by talking to them.
