Whether you are rich or poor, romance should always be a relationship priority. There are several inexpensive date ideas that can be extremely romantic. Treat that special someone to one of these dates to make them feel special and loved.

Moonlit Dancing
You will feel like you are the stars of your own romance movie when you dance under the stars together. Just bring your CD player, loaded with slow love songs, to the backyard or to a local park and you can have an incredibly special evening together…

A Picnic for Two
Pack a picnic basket with some sandwiches, salads, sweets, and wine. As long as you don’t go wild with the wine selection, this can easily be done. Bring a comfortable blanket to snuggle up on. Visit a local historic site for a terrific atmosphere, or a local park. Make a toast to your sweetheart. Spend an afternoon lounging around together in the sun, or go in the evening for a moonlit picnic.

Fly a kite
It is fun to be childlike sometimes. Share your youthful side with your partner on a windy day. This is a fun way to laugh together, but it is simple enough that you can enjoy each other’s conversation as well. Pack some snacks with you, like apples and juice boxes. This is a great way to spend time without spending too much money at all!

Overnight camping
This allows you to spend quality time together in the presence of nature. Enjoy the fresh air and the quiet of the wild. Spend the night stargazing and talking about nothing in particular.

Game Night
Sometimes playing games can actually help a relationship! Play a card game, a video game, a board game, or even a computer game together. You could also just do a jig-saw puzzle or a crossword puzzle. You will have a blast… just as long as you aren’t with a sore loser!

Go for a Drive
Who said Sunday drives are over? Take the scenic route — with no particular destination in mind! You might just end up at “make-out point.” This will make you feel like teenagers again, when you were carefree and adventurous!

Get a Workout
Rent an exercise video, or just go for a jog. Exercise will make you feel energized and ready for a full night of romance. You don’t have to own exercise videos, either. You can rent them at your local video store.

Popcorn and a Movie
Rent a movie, make some popcorn, and curl up on the couch together for a classic date night. Romance and romantic-comedies aren’t your only date options… horror movies will also scare you two together!

Cuddling up with a book together on a cold day
Sometimes the simple things are the most romantic, on a freezing cold day then snuggling up in each others arms on the sofa in front of the fire with a good book can be very intimate and romantic evening.

Star gazing
There is something romantic about looking at the stars, whether seeing the infinite size of the cold and dark universe around us makes us more appreciative of the people we love, or whether we just enjoy them because they look like little sparkling sky diamonds, either way, they ARE romantic.

Cooking A Special Meal Together
This particular date is a lot more fun if you try a NEW recipe together. Both of you pick out the ingredients, go shopping, then roll up your sleeves and get in the kitchen to show off your best gourmet skills.

Candlelit dinner and bathtub
Spend the night getting all wrinkly! Have a nice candlelit dinner together, then head up to the bathroom, go for the full monty, candles everywhere, superhot bath, a whole bottle of bubblebath, maybe some relaxing music. Then grab yourself some red wine and both of you get into the bath together.


The Beauty Of A Women
by Ardem

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman
Is not a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring she lovingly gives,
The Passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman with passing years —
only grows and grows

There is no doubt that exercise is the only salvation for the health problems that are overwhelming Indians. Women hold the key to their family’s health. By exercising regularly, they can set an example and get their family members to follow a healthy life style.

Reading about the advantages of exercise is not enough. We all know that exercise tones our body and adds flexibility and balance, but many women do not realize that exercise has long-lasting effects. Chronic aches and pains disappear.

Regular, moderate exercise reduces the chances of developing diabetes, hypertension and ischemic heart disease. For those who already have these conditions, exercise helps control the disease and prevents further complications.

Get up and get going
Set the date when you are going to start exercising, and stick to it. Let your family and friends know the date so that you will be embarrassed if you are going to do so don’t treat it as a chore: look at as a gift to yourself.

Make it easier to exercise
Keep your exercise shoes in a bag that you take to work. On your way back from work, you can go to a park nearby. Or leave them near the door so that you can set out for a walk whenever you feel like.
Good shoes matter. Make sure your shoes have good cushioning and arch support. This will make exercising fun for your feet. Badly fitting shoes can actually cause heel and calf pain.

Set yourself sensible goals
If you start off on the first day wanting to walk, run or jog for an hour, you might get disheartened if you get exhausted in the first 15 minutes.
Begin with 10-15 minutes of activity, several times daily. Just fit it in whenever you can. Plan to go for a 20-minute walk three times a week and then increase it gradually to at least 45 minutes a day, five days a week.

Make it a group activity
Except for professional athletes, most of us do not have the mental discipline to keep exercising by our- selves. Join a group, a gym or get your husband to go with you. If a bunch of your friends get together to exercise you will be motivators and conscience-keepers for each other.
Exercising with your husband is not only a great bonding experience but also gives you both time together to discuss the day’s events or plan the next day.

Exercise does not have to be high-tech
Many people believe that they need expensive equipment such as treadmills and stationery bicycles to exercise. It is a well-known truth that in many homes, these machines quickly get converted into clothes hangers or storage areas! More and more professional trainers are turning away from elaborate exercise machines and getting back to basic exercises such as aerobics, weight training and gym balls.
The staircase at home is a great way to exercise. Walking briskly up and down the stairs will burn up those calories. Give yourself 20 to 30 minutes of stair-climbling in a day. You will have to build up your stamina by starting with 10 to 15 minutes, and then gradually increasing the duration.

“Exercise is boring!”
It doesn’t have to be. Turn on the music and exercise. If you like to dance, play your favourite songs and dance! It is all about being active, using various muscles and burning calories. Mix and match various forms of exercise. Walk three times a week and do aerobics on three days. Strength training is particularly good as you grow older, to prevent your muscle mass from turning into fat. Exercising regularly will make you a happier person.
Start today!

Herbs and low calorie dressings – Choose fresh herbs from your garden and low fat dressings for your salad like basil, parsley, saga, dill, thyme, mint, lemon juice and vinegar instead of heavy fat dressings.

Low fat drinks – Generally we tend to drink sweetened and creamy coffees, teas, sodas and smoothies in summer to such an extent that we forget about the calories we take in. Remember, any liquid will only help to quench your thirst and not your hunger. So choose wisely –orange dream float, root beer and ice skim latte are some good choices.

Girls grow up listening to fairytales & they are princesses of their parents.

They realise slowly that life is not a fairytale & compromise with their lives just for an unknown person & family.

Leaves behind everything, their family,

They find tears to be their bestfriends,
& guys call gals
”all time crying dolls”

Lucky are the guys who don’t have to leave anything, & who live a life given by their mom sister & wife.

“girls are the angels on earth”:)
Belated wishes for womens Day to every angel i know & every man so they can value all the angels in their life!

Eat healthy. What you eat and drink and what you don’t eat and drink can definitely make a difference to your health. Eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day and less saturated fat can help improve your health and may reduce many health risks. Have a balanced diet, and watch how much you eat.

Keep a healthy weight. Those who are overweight or obese have increased risks for diseases and conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Eat better, get regular exercise, and see your healthcare provider about any health concerns to make sure you are on the right track to staying healthy.

Get moving. For adults, 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week is recommended. It doesn’t take a lot of time or money, but it does take commitment. Start slowly, work up to a satisfactory level, and don’t overdo it. You can develop one routine, or you can do something different every day. Find fun ways to stay in shape and feel good, such as dancing, gardening, cutting the grass, swimming, walking, or jogging.

Be smoke-free. Smoking triples the risk of dying from heart disease among those who are middle-aged. Second-hand smoke – smoke that you inhale when others smoke – also affects your health. If you smoke, quit today!

Don’t Skip Breakfast or Any Other Meal. “Studies show that folks who eat breakfast report being in a better mood, and have more energy throughout the day,” says Heller. Her personal theory, she says, is that breaking the fast soon after rising supplies your body with a jolt of fuel that sets the tone for the whole day.

Eat lots of berries. Especially berries that are blue, red, or purple. The color comes from anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant, that boosts energy. Any kind of berry will contain tons. All types of berries help fight fatigue and are delicious to boot!

Wear brighter colors. This trick is related to the mood you project to people, and the reciprocating mood they project towards you. If you wear dark, somber colors, you project a dark, somber attitude, and people will respond to you with a somber attitude. If you wear bright, happy colors, you’ll get that attitude projected towards you, which will boost your own mood and energy levels.

Drink lots of water. Dehydration is a sinister cause of fatigue because it slowly creeps up on you. If you consistently drink less than 8 cups of water a day, you may be sluggish all the time. Get a 32 oz (1 quart, 4 cups) water bottle. Your goal is to polish off 2 of those a day. Try it for a week and see if your general energy level increases.

Use caffeine wisely. Coffee and caffeinated sodas can boost your alertness, but be careful about letting it be a habitual crutch. The temptation to drink more caffeine to get even more energy will be strong. Eventually you’ll be downing 5 double-shot espressos a day just to function. Drink coffee earlier in the day to avoid insomnia, which will make the next day worse. Coffee in moderation. Caffeine can give you a quick boost of energy, but can also be a counterproductive crutch.

Take a power nap. But do it in your chair. Don’t lie down on the sofa or you won’t get back up. Keep it short: 5-10 minutes max. Any longer and it will have the opposite effect of knocking you out for the rest of the day.

Avoid energy drinks. Energy drinks provide a near-instant hyperactivity boost, but they always result in a crash. Energy drinks are like energy credit cards — you’re spending future energy to get short-term energy. The resulting energy deficit gets worse until you hit energy bankruptcy.

Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Snack throughout the day. By eating smaller but more frequent “meals”, you will maintain a steady dose of energy instead of experiencing food comas. Don’t snack on fatty and sugar laden junk food though. You may get a short 30 minute burst of hyperalertness, but it’ll be quickly followed by a debilitating crash.

Splash some water on your face. Just letting the cool water hit your face washes off the grime and stresses of the day. You could also jump in the pool or take a shower for the same effect. Showers stimulates the circulatory system and metabolism. Get wet to feel more energetic.

Stand up, stretch and take a couple of deep breaths. Stretch your arms, back, legs, and neck. Take a deep breath through your nose, hold it, and let it out slowly and forcefully. Repeat several times. This will take 30 seconds and will be an instant fix. When you sit back down, you’ll have the clear head and fresh feeling needed to power through the tough/boring task in front of you.

Take a mini-vacation. Take one day and just do whatever you want. No work, no chores, no errands. Enjoy your one full day of vacation, then come back to work more motivated and energetic.

Listen to tunes while you work. It’s well known that our brain’s pleasure centers light up when we hear music. Throwing on the headphones and listening to any music you like while working will give you a productivity boost.

Start exercising. If you have a fairly sedentary life, just the idea of starting an intense exercise program is exhausting. But if you go slow, literally taking one step at a time, you can go from being sedentary to becoming a runner just like Leo.Get moving! Getting some exercise will lift your energy levels all day. Get moving! Getting some exercise will lift your energy levels all day.

Get a massage. Loosen up those tight muscles and you’ll feel more relaxed. A more relaxed you means a happier and more productive you. Trade a quick shoulder rub with a coworker after lunch to perk both of you up for the rest of the afternoon.

Have a laugh. Laughter is great medicine for exhaustion. Make sure you laugh regularly to keep your mood up. Seek out funny people or subscribe to a daily email joke.

Take up yoga. The stretching, slow controlled movements, and focus on breathing reduces tension (and stress). The benefits include better sleep, feeling more relaxed, and being mentally sharper.

Dress up. Feeling better about yourself has a magical way of giving you more energy. Put just a tad more effort into looking your best for work, and you’ll get compliments from coworkers that will make you feel better — and make you a perkier, more energetic worker bee.

Get a good night’s sleep. We need 7-8 hours of sleep to be fully rested. Consistently sleeping less than 6 hours a night builds up a “sleep debt” that is hard to recover from. If you’re getting enough sleep, it should take you up to 30 minutes to fall asleep. If you’re falling asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow (or while sitting at your desk), that’s a symptom of sleep deprivation.

Socialize. Turn off the Internet and go socialize with friends. Humans are social animals, and we need regular socializing to keep ourselves in peak health and energy.
Go out and play with your friends!

You have been there
Since I was a kid

You know everything I said
And everything I did

Whenever I need you
You always understand

It never matters what it is
Whatever I say or do

You are always there right by my side
With my problems I always come to you

I could never keep anything from you
Nor could I ever lie

When I tell you all my faults
You never ask me why

Happy, Sad, Depressed, Upset
You’ve been there for all the moods

When I am upset, or mad at the world
You know exactly how to respond

That’s because you are my dad
With that certain special bond

You know exactly what to say
When my life is a complete trauma

And when my friends mess my life up
With there silly little drama

I know your shoulder is always there
Just for me to cry

Dad, you are my best friend
Something I always can look up to

I said I’d always be your little girl
And that’s exactly what I’ll do

I know you have to let go of me,
as the years go by

But dad, that’s not such a bad thing
But you know when I have trouble

No matter if we argue or disagree
or whatever we may do

You’re not just my father,
Dad, you’re my hero
And never forget that I Love you!!!!!
