Counteract low self-esteem by listening to the way that you talk to yourself: Negative self-talking: don’t do it. Dr Linda Papadopulos, psychologist and TV presenter, imparts her knowledge on how to overcome low self-esteem. It sounds cliché, but ‘me’ time should be our top priority. Managing your time efficiently to incorporate ‘me’ time has plenty of positive effects. It will make you feel good about yourself, and feeling good will also impact how well you function and look. Have you penciled in your ‘me’ time yet?
The Perks of Looking on The Bright Side: In a similar fashion, The Huffington Post explores the health benefits of optimism. A new study has revealed that most people around the world see the proverbial glass half full. Surprised?

So if you desire a healthy heart, low cholesterol, or a strong immune system we suggest you up your game in the happiness department. How exactly? Only you can answer that.

Eat More Strawberries For Whiter Teeth: Strawberries keep teeth healthy. Yes, really- scrubbing your teeth with strawberries will whiten them.

Snacking before bedtime – it’s okay: If you frequently lie in bed at night watching time go by, Lauren Conrad’s sleep remedies could help. We are delighted to learn that a bedtime snack is not a faux pas and it could actually help you restless people get some sleep. But before you get carried away there are rules. A SNACK is not a meal and high carb, low protein foods are advised. We admit that cottage cheese, cashews, chicken, turkey, soybeans and tuna don’t quite match up to the biscuit tin… but still, we can snack before bed!
The Dangers of Waxing Your Hoo-Ha: Stylist reveals the beauty habits that are bad for our health. Summer calls for a trip to the waxing salon.

Shaving or laser could be a safer option.
