1. Orange juice. Foods rich in Vitamin C help decrease the production of cortisol, a hormone that may lead to increased fat storage.
2. Oatmeal. The complex carbohydrates in oatmeal stimulate the release of serotonin that helps reduce mental stress.
3. Salmon. This is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids which prevents stress hormones from peaking after a tense situation.
4. Oysters. The high level of Zinc in oysters helps decrease the secretion of cortisol in your body.
5. Dark chocolate. The polyphenols and flavonols in dark chocolate help lower blood pressure, adding to calmness.

Despite their best efforts, some runners don’t lose weight by running. Some even gain a few pounds. To avoid the same thing happening to you, check out these running mistakes that you should avoid.

1. Eating more calories than you need. When you run, you get hungry, then you eat more calories than you realize.

2. Not running enough miles. If you’ve been running for a while and haven’t lost any weight, you’d probably need to increase your weekly mileage. The more calorie deficit you can create, the more likely you lose or at least maintain your weight.

3. Drinking too many calories during your runs. Unless you’ll be running for more than 90 minutes, you don’t need sports drinks during or after your runs. Plain water is fine to keep you hydrated/re-hydrated. In general, try to avoid sports drinks, regular sodas, and fruit juices.

4. Not varying your runs. With practice, your body becomes more efficient at running, so you may start to burn fewer calories doing the same old run. Try incorporating speed intervals or do hill repeats.

Managing a home business while taking care of children can be a demanding task, but it's not impossible. Here are some tips to help you juggle both roles efficiently:

1. Establish a Routine: Kids, especially younger ones, thrive on routine. Stick to a schedule that includes your business tasks, children’s activities, meals, nap times, and breaks. This provides predictability for both you and your kids.

2. Create a Dedicated Workspace: Even if it’s just a corner of a room, have a space dedicated to your work. This helps mentally separate work and family time and makes it clear to your children when you are "at work."

3. Set Clear Boundaries: Explain to your children (in age-appropriate ways) what you do and why you need quiet time or uninterrupted periods. Use visual cues, like a "Do Not Disturb" sign, to remind them when you shouldn’t be interrupted.

4. Take Regular Breaks: Every few hours, take a 10-15 minute break to spend with your kids. This allows you to reset and provides them with the attention they crave.

Did you know that bananas are a great substitute for high-calorie snacks? Since they're sweet, bananas will satisfy your sugar cravings.

Bananas are also a great pre-workout snack because it is high in Vitamin C which is needed to ensure a more powerful gym session.

Bananas also contain chromium, a mineral that helps your body burn more calories.

Soy is one of the most nutrient-dense foods. It contains all the essential amino acids needed to support growth and development.

There is scientific evidence of the cholesterol-lowering benefits of soy protein in the diet. Soy is also a powerful antioxidant and helps improve heart and bone health.

Yet soy is the subject of several popular myths. However, numerous clinical studies have proved these claims wrong and recommended adding soy more to your diet.

As the supplement industry skyrockets, it's clear that many companies are rushing in to stake their claim. Sadly, some see this as a chance for easy profit, cutting corners on ingredient sourcing, manufacturing, and quality checks to reduce costs.

Too busy to go to the gym?

All you need is 10 minutes and dumbbells to work all major muscles in your body.

Pick dumbbells that match your fitness level (say 5–15 lbs in each hand). Hold the weights up near your ears and do squats or lunges. Follow each squat by pressing the weight to the ceiling. Repeat. This exercise works all major muscles in your body.

Want your school to be the top-listed School/college?
