If your cooking area has become the core hanging spot of your family, you are likely to consume 15 per cent more during the day.

As per a research study conducted by Professor Brian Wansink from Food Lab at Cornell University, women who are habitual of keeping crisps on the kitchen shelves weighed 8lbs more than their counterparts who didn’t.

In order to address the over-eating problem, the only solution is to keep healthy meals insight. You are free to stash the beans, fruits, grains, pulses in the open, while the unhealthy options are best kept tucked up inside a non-transparent drawer.

Are you prone to waking up too soon, leading to the disturbed sleeping patterns? Using black-out shades may sound like an appealing idea to keep the daylight out, but natural sunlight is necessary to maintain the circadian rhythm of your body.

Also, the natural light is responsible for regulating sleep/wake cycles, together with the immunity mechanism, hormones, BP and all other vital functionalities of the brain and body—using subtle-shaded curtains might prove to be a better alternative here.

The colour of the walls is known to influence sleep patterns, dietary habits and the moods too. For instance, red is considered as a high arousal colour, which activates the sensations and can spike the heart rate and BP.
