Japanese actor Miki Ryosuke recently discovered an interesting method that helped him to lose 13 kg (28.7 lb) and 12 cm (4.7″) from the waist in just a few weeks. The exercise takes only 2 minutes a day! Let’s give it a shot to understand how it might help you. There is a little bonus at the end of the video – don’t miss it!

Most European doctors support the use of breathing exercises for weight loss and explain their effectiveness as follows: fat consists of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. When the oxygen you breathe in reaches the fat cells, it splits them into carbon and water. THE INSTRUCTION: • First, stand up, and push one leg forward and the other back. • Now strain your buttocks and transfer your weight to your back foot. Yes, just like this. • Slowly start inhaling for 3 seconds, lifting your arms above your head. • Then exhale forcefully for 7 seconds, straining all your body muscles. Perform this exercise every day for 2 to10 minutes.

How Good Are Your Eyes? Cool and Quick Test
 
08:12
How good is your eyesight? Here’s a simple eyesight test that will show how sharp your eyes are. We all know that “eyes are the windows to the soul.” Do your windows need cleaning, or are they crystal clear and give a sharp picture of the world? Take this test to find it out! There will be 4 stages, and it will get harder and harder with every stage. The first one might seem like a piece of cake (and if you’re actually seeing a piece of cake we’ve got problems), but the further we go, the more concentration it will require. In fact, only 8 % of people can pass stage 4 because it is so hard. You will have the same task for every question in all the stages. The task is to pick 1 out of 10 colors which is different from the rest. To pass each of the stages, you have to find that odd one out in each task. If you fail once, you fail the entire stage. TIMESTAMPS Stage 1 Easy 1:11 Stage 2 Normal 2:23 Stage 3 Hard 3:53 Stage 4 Very Hard 5:29 Results 7:06 SUMMARY Congratulations to all superhumans out there who made it. Your eyesight is fantastic! 92% of people failed at this task, and you managed to rock it! There is a chance you are a tetrachromat. This smart word is used to define people who have more receptors in their eyes than others and can see more shades of different colors. Did you manage to make it through all 4 stages? If you failed, at what stage did it happen? Let’s discuss it in the comments section!

19 Simple Psychological Tricks That Actually Work
 
07:48
Have you ever had to use psychological tricks to get what you want? There are a lot of psychological tricks and neuro-linguistic programming tips and there are millions of books and articles written about them. Many of these tricks really help professionals manipulate people and avoid being tricked by others. But are there tips that non-professionals can use on a daily basis? Psychology is a science with certain laws one cannot ignore. Modern marketing specialists, entrepreneurs, and even swindlers realize that. Bright Side offers a few psychological tricks you can use in everyday life to make it much easier and more exciting for you to reach your goals. TIMESTAMPS: #1 0:29 #2 0:58 #3 1:18 #4 1:46 #5 2:03 #6 2:17 #7 2:40 #8 3:06 #9 3:21 #10 3:36 #11 3:55 #12 4:20 #13 4:49 #14 5:19 #15 5:51 #16 6:04 #17 6:19 #18 6:38 #19 7:04 #psychologicaltricks #psychologicaltips #changelife Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Never start your request with the words "Could you..." It can cause the other person to subconsciously assume that this is a theoretical question - If you ever want someone to feel uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation. - If someone you're talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still keeping eye contact. - When asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to, try to nod subtly as you make your request. This trick is often used by restaurants employees to make guests buy more food, and it’s pretty effective! - If a person is really concentrated on a task (let's say they're in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and get anything they’re holding at the moment. - If you want somebody to do something for you, casually say how they probably wouldn’t even be able to do it. Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities. - Here’s a good one for negotiations. If you like a person's offer in general but would like to get better conditions, pretend to be a little bit disappointed. - As soon as your alarm clock goes off, sit up, make two fists, and yell "Yeah!" as if you’re a soccer player who's just scored a goal. It sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily get out of bed feeling refreshed. - If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some drama, say something nice to them. The ol’ “kill ‘em with kindness” trick really does stop them in their tracks. - If you have that one lazy person on your team that slows the whole work process down, don't give them tasks by saying "Do this." It’s better to say "Start with this." - If someone is staring at you in the subway (happens all-too often, right?), just look at their shoes. Don't give up, keep gazing! It’ll drive them crazy! - If someone has done something wrong, but you don’t wanna sound too accusing, change the way you construct your sentences. - If you didn't get a good night's sleep, tell yourself that you did. I know, it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning! - People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day. As for anything that went on in between, it gets blurry.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER
 
09:20
How to understand your cat? 🐱 How to make friends with your cat? 😍 Everyone knows that cats are the most illogical and unpredictable pets. Just try to work out what’s going through that furry little head! It turns out that cats have their own language, and if you learn it there’s a chance you’ll understand them much better. We’ve put together all of the possible cat behaviors to help you find a common language with your pet (well, if it allows you to). Also, we’ve prepared three essential tips that will help you communicate with cats better. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CAT • How to make your cat trust you Lowering your cat to the ground, make sure its paws have reached the floor. Your cat will trust you and know that it won’t tumble if you let it go. • How to stroke your cat If you sit on the floor with your legs crossed and look at your cat, it will interpret this as a friendly gesture and come up to you to let you stroke it. Also, stretch your hand out in its direction. Your middle finger should be a little lower than the others. The cat will start rubbing its nose or face against your hand. • How to make your cat appear A cat may go and hide and only appear when it’s alone or hears a calm voice. #understandcat #catbehavior #pet TIMESTAMPS Cat's tail 0:52 Cat's eyes 3:47 Cat's interaction with people 4:38 Cat gestures 6:14 Cat language 6:57 How to communicate with your cat better 8:09 MAIN CAT GESTURES • If a cat raises its nose up and throws its head, it’s saying, “I see you.” Cats often make this gesture to people walking past the window. Have you ever noticed it? • A cat might press its ears against its head if it feels scared, worried, or wants to play. They also do this when they are sniffing something that’s interested them. • When a cat sticks its tongue out slightly and licks itself, it’s worried or anxious. CAT LANGUAGE • Cats generally greet people or announce their presence with a short sound. • Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you’re away from home for a long time. • A medium-length meow might be a request for water or food. • A long sound (a mix of purring and meowing) is a more insistent request or demand. • A low meow is a complaint or indication of dissatisfaction. Also, it might mean your cat is ready to fight. • A loud sound often indicates an urgent demand (for instance, you cat needs more food). • A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy. Now you know how to find a common language with any cat. By the way, are you a cat person or a dog person?

As if you needed any more convincing that starting your day with a glass of warm water and lemon was the way to go, we have compiled this ultimate list of health and beauty benefits that can be derived from lemon water.

5 Mistakes You Make In The Shower Every Day
 
03:31
Few would think you can do such a simple thing as taking a shower incorrectly. In fact, there are some simple rules you need to follow to keep your skin healthy. Did you know, for example, that you should change sponges and loofahs once every four weeks? Yep, using the same sponge for a long time increases your health risks, since wet sponges and loofahs are perfect for bacteria and mold growth. So, today, we'll tell you about five common mistakes almost all of us make every day when showering. All of them are important, but you need to pay special attention to a towel you usually use. Other videos you might like: 3 Ways to Lose Weight Without Dieting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV6YAWenWpU& 9 Tips to Keep Hair Clean and Voluminous Longer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkk7MPl1iRI& What If You Stopped Showering for a Year? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckqAkbPl-e4& TIMESTAMPS: Hot water 0:35 Showering for too long 1:07 Frequent use of foamy gels 1:27 Using old sponges 2:03 Drying off incorrectly 2:33 SUMMARY: - Hot water makes the skin dry and flaky. First, it washes away too much of the essential oils that our skin needs to keep itself hydrated and smooth. Secondly, hot water increases blood flow, which often leads to erythema, inflammations, and rashes. - The maximum duration of a shower that is good for your health is about 10 minutes. However, the optimal duration is 7 minutes. - The more lather there is, the more superficially active substances there are in a shower gel. It means using the gel is depleting your natural protective oil layer, leading to dryness and roughness of your skin. - Properly drying the skin is as important as washing your body correctly. If your towel is very dry, it might harm your skin. Always dry your body with a soft towel, leaving your skin a bit moist.

Do not eat too many sweets and fast food. Also, you should avoid carbonated drinks, salted nuts, and bakery products. - If your body type is apple, you tend to gain weight in your midsection. Therefore, the perfect diet for you is eating little and often. Eat six times a day, but reduce your portions. You need foods rich in fiber, fruits, vegetables, vitamin C, and low-fat dairy. - A pear-shaped body is characterized by a much larger hip measurement than bust measurement. Go with meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, seafood, greens, and foods with high protein content. Also, add tomatoes and tomato juice to your diet to boost your metabolism naturally. - While this is the most desired body shape, hourglass-figured women tend to gain weight evenly throughout their body and lack muscle tone. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and consume healthy fats from lean proteins.

What's Graphene And Why It'll Soon Take Over The World
 
11:18
What is graphene? What is it used for? The most amazing thing about this semi-metal of the future is the fact that you can produce it yourself in your living room! What is graphene, and why is it so amazing? One of the things that makes graphene so cool is that it’s the thinnest material you can imagine. It's just one atom thick! This means this material is mathematically 2-dimensional. And you can still hold this single layer of atoms in your hands! Surprisingly, graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! TIMESTAMPS: Why graphene is so amazing 1:05 How graphene was discovered 1:48 How expensive graphene is 2:15 What the properties of graphene are 2:41 How graphene can be used 4:50 Can you make graphene at home? 9:59 #graphene #thinnestmaterial #graphenelayers Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! - Dr. Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim discovered the wonder-material in 2004 at the University of Manchester. They were examining how efficient graphite is as a transistor. The story goes that graphene appeared thanks to sticky tape! - Graphene used to be incredibly expensive to manufacture. It cost a whopping $1,100 to produce enough graphene to cover the head of a pin. However, by the end of 2015, you could buy 0.35 oz of graphene for $1,000. - Graphene is incredibly stretchy. It can stretch as much as 25% of its length! This material is also really stiff. Actually, it’s the hardest material people know about — even harder than diamonds, and that says a lot! - One more great thing about graphene is its relationship with electricity. This material carries electricity more quickly, more precisely, and more efficiently than any other known material. - Graphene may be the answer to the water crisis many countries are facing. If we make membranes from graphene, they would be able to let water through while filtering out salt at the same time. - One layer of graphene is impressive enough. Can you imagine what you could achieve with 2 layers of this super material? Nothing short of incredibly strong body armor. - If producers start to use graphene in gadget manufacturing, we might end up with smartphones that can be bent in any direction. One of graphene’s main properties is its flexibility. - Graphene can be used in the beauty industry as well. It will be the perfect alternative to current hair dyes, most of which are still toxic and damaging to hair. - Well, you can potentially make graphene at home, provided you have enough time and patience to do so.

14 Signs That'll Help You Recognize a Child Kidnapper
 
10:47
How to protect your child from kidnapping? We’ve got 14 kidnappers’ tricks that kidnappers use when interacting with children. Be careful and show this video to your little ones! Every year thousands of kids get abducted all over the world. The kidnappers have all the skills of a good psychologist. They know how to win the kids’ hearts to manipulate their minds perfectly. One of the most common tricks all kidnappers use is asking kids for help. If you feel like things have gone too wild and the hysterics is more than a regular grumpy attack, it won’t hurt to check on them. If you spot a suspicious adult watching kids go up and down the slides or building sand castles – let them know that you know. Some abductors will let the kid play a “demo” game to invite them into the car later to continue. After winning the child’s trust, the villain can say they have to go to the hospital immediately, because “mom is in trouble.” If you ever overhear that kind of conversation between a kid and an adult, take action.Molesters can invite kids to save local heroes: popular celebrities, coaches or school teachers. They don’t even have to invent a fake name for themselves, just say they were sent by that person everyone knows and loves. A driver who is asking a child for directions and invites him or her to get into that car to guide them is 99% a child abductor. When you get lost while driving, you are more likely to ask a policeman or other adults for help, right? The easiest way to win someone’s trust is to pretend to be someone everyone trusts already. A policeman, for example. However, a real police officer will try to find the child’s parents and not just take the little one away. If you confront the obviously fake policeman and he refuses to show his ID, try to take a picture of him. TIMESTAMPS Asking for help 0:37 Crying kid 1:32 Playground observers 2:27 Free stuff 2:56 Puppies trick 3:58 Fake friend 4:37 The hero lure 5:37 Using other kids 6:13 Asking for directions 6:44 Offering a ride 7:14 The fame lure 8:00 Fake policemen 8:36 Sir or Madam 9:22 The looks 9:40 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -One of the most common tricks all kidnappers use is asking kids for help. If you ever hear an adult begging for help at a playground, it is a reason to be alarmed. -If you feel like things have gone too wild and the hysterics is more than a regular grumpy attack, it won’t hurt to check on them. Ask the kid and the accompanying adult if everything is alright, and how they all are related. -If you spot a suspicious adult watching kids go up and down the slides or building sand castles – let them know that you know. Take a picture of that stranger. -Kids are very kind and trustful. When offered candy, toys or cool gadgets like smartphones and tablets, they will follow the kind stranger anywhere. -7% of abductors use puppies to win the kid’s attention and trust. -An abductor can do some serious research on the prospective victim and pretend they’re someone they know well. -Molesters can invite kids to save local heroes: popular celebrities, coaches or school teachers. -Sometimes molesters use other kids to win the child’s trust. -A driver who is asking a child for directions and invites him or her to get into that car to guide them is 99% a child abductor. -There were known cases in criminal practice when children were taken away on motorcycles after they were offered a fun ride. -Kidnappers approach kids complimenting their looks and offering easy fame and success. -If you confront the obviously fake policeman and he refuses to show his ID, try to take a picture of him. -If you hear a child call an adult accompanying him or her "Sir" or "Madam," it is a warning sign, as well. -If you see a well-dressed child being taken somewhere by a strangely-looking adult dressed carelessly or even somewhat like a homeless person, do not ignore it.

Why Cats Lie on Their Backs When They See You
 
09:28
While cats have been domesticated pets since the days of Cleopatra, there’s still a lot about them that remains a mystery. Like when they just roll over as you approach them, what’s up with that? Actually, when cats lie on their back and expose their bellies, it’s their way of saying “Hello, human!”! But it's not the only message a cat sends when it shows you its cute furry little belly. Today we're talking about cat behaviors. Why do they expose their belly? Why do they bring you dead animals? Why do they like watching from afar? There are plenty of other things they do that just have you scratching your head in confusion. Let's figure out together! Other videos you might like: 26 Facts About Cats That'll Make You Love Them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO_EunoUSWg& HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6yBbBRr8Y 19 Awesome Cats That Cost a Fortune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLSZmmDBM9Y& TIMESTAMPS: Showing you its belly 0:43 Rubbing its head on you 2:15 Kneading 2:49 Blinking at you slowly 3:37 Watching from afar 4:01 Scratching your furniture 4:59 Chattering its teeth 5:45 Bringing you dead animals 6:43 Sitting in the most random places 7:22 Bursting with energy in the middle of the night 8:10 #cats #catbehavior #yourpet Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Be careful not to invade your cat’s space unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched. Look for other clues like their ears and tail. If their tail is moving back and forth and their ears are set back, this means they’d rather be left alone. - When a cat weaves through your legs and rubs its head on you, it's called bunting, and it involves a release of pheromones from a cat’s head. Basically, it’s as if they’re leaving their scent on you to make sure other cats know that you belong to them. - Have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start pressing their little paws into you over and over again? When cats do this sort of bread-kneading motion, it’s actually leftover from their kitten days when they used to nurse. - Has your cat ever made prolonged eye contact with you while blinking really slowly every few seconds? It’s awkward, I know! But this is actually a way for your cat to show you affection! - If you find that your cat is watching you from afar but never wants to engage, this could be a sign that they’re anxious or even mad at you. - Similar to how a dog urinates on things to mark their territory (which cats can do too sometimes, by the way), cats like to scratch furniture to show others what’s theirs. - If your cat’s teeth are chattering really fast, it doesn’t mean they have the chills. It’s actually related to a natural instinct to hunt. - Many animal behaviorists believe that your cat shares a successful kill with you as a way of thanking you for your care. Cats also do this in hopes that you’ll see how good they are, and you’ll pay more attention to them! - Cats seem to love squeezing into small spaces, even though it often looks terribly uncomfortable. They do this because it helps them feel protected and safe. - Many house cats hold in a lot of energy during the day and since they have nocturnal instincts, they often go nuts in the middle of the night.

Do These 5 Things Every Morning, See How It Will Change You
 
07:15
How to make your day more productive? To have a productive day, there are things you should do every morning — and no, this doesn’t include chugging copious amounts of coffee! When you wake up, what’s the first thing you do? Check your phone? Get up and brush your teeth? Do you know that if you’re not gulping down a nice tall glass of water, you’re doing yourself a disservice? Or that unhealthy breakfast does nothing to help your body throughout the day? Or that if you begin your day without doing any stretching or movement, you’re more likely to hurt yourself later on? So, guys, will you be able to fit these activities into your morning routine?

And since you haven’t eaten anything yet, this flush is very smooth and effective. - Oats are a great source of protein, and they’re great for healthy digestion. That’s because they’re full of healthy vitamins, minerals, and complex carbohydrates that digest slowly in your system, keeping your blood sugar levels steady. - When you fall asleep and wake up again 10 or 20 minutes later, you’re interrupting your sleep cycle, which will make you feel super groggy and disoriented long after you get out of bed. - If you keep the shades drawn all morning and get ready in darkness, your body thinks it’s not time to function yet. This delays your body’s natural rhythm and gets your day off to a bad start. - Doing mobilizing exercises in the morning is a great way to prepare your body for the day by lubricating the joints and warming up the muscles.

8 Tricks to Sleep Better According to Athletes
 
08:05
Do you have any sleep troubles? World-famous athletes owe a lot of their success not only to their intense training but also to their sleep coaches! That's right, getting proper sleep is crucial for their performance, and they can certainly teach us all a thing or two about it. For example, even if you don’t consider yourself a necessarily light sleeper, experts still recommend using earplugs. It’s often unexpected minor noises that interrupt our sleep and lower its quality, so a simple pair of earplugs can really come in handy. When choosing earplugs, remember to check their noise reduction rating. If you want them to block most sounds, go for the highest rating there is, which is 39 decibels. TIMESTAMPS: Set a schedule based on sleep cycles 0:47 Try to sleep on your side or back 1:50 Set the appropriate temperature in your room 3:02 Invest in good bedding 3:36 Make your bedroom as dark as possible 4:24 Eat the right food 5:07 Use earplugs 6:11 Resolve your stress 6:51 #sleepproblems #insomnia #goodsleep Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Sleep is usually measured in 1.5-hour cycles because that’s how much time your body needs to pass through all stages of sleep and restore itself completely. The best solution for adults is to sleep for at least 5 cycles through the night, which equals 7½ hours of rest. - Sleeping on your right side is one of the best sleep positions for your heart. It improves cardiac performance, reduces shortness of breath and palpitations, and lowers your heart rate. - The National Sleep Foundation suggests keeping your bedroom temperature at about 60-67°F. That’s because our body temperature naturally decreases to initiate sleep, and this room temperature range helps boost this important process. - The National Sleep Foundation reminds us that most mattresses have a lifespan of 8 years. If yours is much older than that, you should definitely start looking for a replacement. - Turn off the lights, close your curtains, and try to cover up all illuminated displays and buttons on your electronic devices. Achieving as much darkness as possible will help you successfully go through all stages of sleep and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy! - When you consume caffeine or fatty dishes that are high in sugar, your body temperature rises since it takes a long time for your system to digest that stuff. Of course, a higher body temperature is not what you want when it comes to sleeping. - No matter how great your mattress and pillow are, if you're feeling worried or stressed, you won't be able to sleep. So the solution is simple: try to calm down and relax before going to bed. One of the best ones is meditation!

10 FOODS TO AVOID FOR A FLAT BELLY
 
05:28
How to get a flat stomach? We all want to have it, but do you know that abdominal fat is the most difficult to deal with? You work out, you try to adopt healthy diet habits, but you don’t see visible results in the mirror. Stubborn belly fat is still there, and it seems that it doesn’t plan to go anywhere. If this sounds familiar to you, we at Bright Side want you to know more about the foods that stand in the way of the perfect belly you’ve always wanted. Other videos you might like: Only 2 Cups a Day for 1 Week for a Flat Stomach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hcd6yCHePM& 8 Effective Exercises to Get a Flat Belly in Just 30 Days https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqHIiK9dpNs 5 Exercises to Get a Flat Belly in Just 4 Weeks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9CNusqSGDY& TIMESTAMPS: Chewing gum – 0:38 High-sodium foods 1:10 Fast food 1:41 Alcohol 2:06 Soft drinks 2:31 Mayonnaise 3:02 French fries 3:21 Ice cream 3:51 Foods that cause bloating 4:14 "Sugar-free" products 4:40 SUMMARY: - When you chew gum, your brain and stomach receive signals that prepare them for an incoming meal. Plus, gum triggers the overproduction of stomach acid, and, as a result, you feel hungry. - High-sodium foods are really harmful to your health, and they also retain fluids that prevent you from losing belly fat. Adopt a low-sodium diet, and your body will thank you for this. - It’s no secret that fast food contains too many calories that may bring various health problems from heart diseases to cancer. - Some alcoholic drinks are rich in calories, but calories are not the main factor here. Alcohol consumption increases your appetite and confuses the part of your brain that is responsible for the feeling of fullness. - Cola, soda, tonic… We hear this all the time, but it’s still so hard to give up this habit. These drinks contain carbonation, which draws gas into your stomach and intestines. - If you’re a fan of mayonnaise and mayonnaise-based salads, then you should know that this dressing contains at least 80% fat. - As much as you love this food, you should give it up as soon as possible! Fried potatoes, just like any other fried foods, work like a sponge that absorbs saturated fats. - Foods rich in sugar inevitably turn into abdominal fat, that is the most harmful fat in your body. - Foods that contain sugar substitutes such as polyalcohols, for example, are only effective for people with diabetes. These sugar-free products can still harm your body and make your stomach bigger.

I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed
 
09:10
Learn the secrets of success from those who built their own empires from scratch. You can try adopting the habits of super rich people and see how it will help you save money. Successful people are rarely night owls; they go to bed and wake up quite early. So this was the first habit I decided to take on. By the end of the first week, I noticed that I was able to do way more before noon than I could ever do during the whole day. One more week into the experiment I started waking up completely well-rested and excited to start a new day. Self-made successes swear by exercising every day for at least 30 minutes. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I became more concentrated and calmer. If meditating helps successful people stay on top of their game, it should help me out too. Networking is like currency for successful people. A lot of successful people (like Steve Jobs, for instance) keep a super minimalistic approach to fashion, often wearing the same outfit every day. Truly smart and successful people control their expenses and don’t spend their money on useless things.

It took me 3 days to get the schedule right. -The hardest part here wasn't even the gym itself, it was exercising after working all day. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I started sleeping better and waking up easier. -Meditation turned out to be a really good way to get my head straight and renew my energy. -Even though I didn’t manage to tackle all my tasks, I was able to do more things in the first week than I did during the entire previous month. -I learned to find common ground with people from the get-go, met a lot of extraordinary individuals, and made some really good friends. -I carried a book with me at all times and read it on the way to work and back home or during lunch. As a result, by the end of the first month, I had finished my fourth book. -I no longer had to waste time every day choosing my outfit, deciding whether or not it matched or if it was trendy and whatnot. -I started out by making a list of everything that I bought every day so that I could see what I spent my money on. This system helped me save 40% of my salary in the first month and almost 60% in the second. -New habits really did completely change my life for the better.

What'll Happen If You Eat 4 Almonds Every Day

One of them, Drawida grandis, can grow up to 3.5 ft long. - You can still find the roots of tropical forest plants if you dig 23 ft down. Tropical trees need such long roots to store water during dry periods. - When we arrive at a depth of 60 ft, we can see Beijing's Underground City. That's a subterranean bomb shelter consisting of a vast network of tunnels and underground rooms. It’s situated under the capital of China. - In Cappadocia, Turkey, there's an underground complex that probably dates back to the 7th century.

Start Eating Turmeric Every Day, The Result Will Surprise You
 
12:09
How do you feel about turmeric? Not a big fan? Well, listen up because you’ll probably change your mind after hearing about these incredible health benefits of this brightly colored spice! So, what changes can you expect in your body after a month of including turmeric in your diet? A 2013 study by researchers in the Department of Oral Pathology at India’s Punjab University proved that this spice can help whiten your teeth. Known as Curcuma longa in the scientific community, Turmeric has been used in traditional Indian medicine for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties. If you’re struggling with, say, skin issues, hair loss, or even extra weight, then turmeric also can be of help! TIMESTAMPS: Your teeth will get whiter 0:59 You’ll get rid of acne 2:03 Your hair will grow much faster and thicker 3:19 It’ll strengthen your immunity 4:13 It’ll cure a sore throat 5:21 You’ll say goodbye to your cold 6:00 It’ll heal broken skin and wounds 6:33 You’ll feel less joint pain 7:24 It’ll improve your mood and stimulate brain function 8:16 It’ll help prevent cancer 9:14 Your skin will look younger 10:04 You’ll lose weight 10:59 #turmeric #turmericbenefits #curcumin Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric has been used for ages to treat skin conditions, but it does have backing by modern science. - A study by the Korean BioSpectrum Life Science Institute has shown that the curcumin in turmeric can prevent hair loss by strengthening the hair follicles. - According to researchers at Ohio State University, taking turmeric with your food or in the form of supplements isn’t the best for strengthening immunity since it mostly stays in the gastrointestinal tract and metabolizes quickly. - Indian scientists in the Department of Oral Pathology at Punjab University concluded that, thanks to its antimicrobial properties, turmeric extract can stop the growth of bacteria and parasites and reduce inflammation in the throat. - Turmeric’s amazing antibiotic effects and anti-inflammatory properties also make it an excellent cure for the common cold. - In 2007, researchers at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland studied turmeric’s properties as a cure for skin conditions like scleroderma, psoriasis, and even skin cancer. - In 2016, Dr. Kok-Yong Chin headed a study in the Department of Pharmacology at Malaysia’s Kebangsaan University Medical Centre to find out the effect curcumin has on joint inflammation. Arthritic patients involved in the research took extracts of curcuminoids and enhanced curcumin. - Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles asked 40 adults aged 51-84 to take curcumin twice a day. The scientists monitored their cognition with the help of memory tests and noticed a visible improvement by the end of the trial. - While there’s no 100% effective universal cure against this deadly disease just yet, it looks like you can prevent pancreatic cancer with the help of turmeric. - In 2014, scientists in the Department of Zoology at the University of Delhi tested the anti-aging properties of turmeric. They concluded that genes regulating metabolism, DNA repair, and antioxidant systems actually control human lifespan. - Curcumin alters the composition of fat cells, turning undesirable white fat cells into the healthy brown kind.

If You Ever See This on the Beach, Cry for Help!
 
08:29
How do you recognize something that you can touch and something you have to run away from as fast as possible? Here is a list of the most dangerous sea creatures you can meet and how to recognize them! There are so many different species living in the ocean! Some of them are beautiful, some are deadly, and some are both. TIMESTAMPS Fire Coral 0:40 Flower Urchin 1:20 Cone Snail 1:50 Portuguese Man-of-War 2:32 Snea snakes 3:54 Lionfish 4:51 Chironex 5:39 Surgeonfish 6:15 Indonesian needlefish 6:59 Triggerfish 7:34 SUMMARY - Fire Coral. These small organisms can sting, and the effect can be not very serious and it can be quite bad. A stung person may have severe pains, feel nauseated and even vomit, which is not the best thing to do when you are underwater. - Flower Urchin is both very beautiful and very deadly. It contains toxins that can cause anaphylactic shock, convulsions and finally death. You can get poisoned if you step on it when you are in the sea or the ocean. - Scientists say that just one drop of the cone snail’s poison is enough to kill 20 people! Just one drop! - The most mind-blowing fact about Man-of-War is that technically we should call it Men-of-War, and refer to it not as «it», but «they», and here is why: it’s an animal that is made up of a colony of organisms cooperating together. Man-of-war has tentacles that can be 30 feet long, which it uses to paralyze and kill fish and other small creatures. - Sea snakes are much more venomous than their land-living friends. As it turns out, they have to be like that because they hunt fish, so what they need to do is immobilize their prey very quickly not to let it escape. - Many people call the lionfish the most beautiful sea creature in the world. You can find them in the Caribbean and Eastern Atlantic. Lionfishes are not deadly — they do have a venom, but it’s not lethal. However, the pain you will experience if you get stung is so severe that people say you might wish you were dead. - Chironex doesn’t have any teeth, but it’s dangerous as hell. If a person gets stung, they will have excruciating pain, red inflammation in the stung area and heart dysfunction. - Surgeonfish are easily spooked, so you should be extra careful if you see one of them. Don’t make any unexpected fast moves. The good news is, surgeonfish are not aggressive unless, of course, you provoke them. - Indonesian needlefish live in tropical and subtropical waters of the oceans. They, as the name suggests, have a very sharp, needle-like beak, and they are especially dangerous when they hurl themselves out of the water. - Triggerfish is mostly friendly, but only until you are a threat to its nest. The most dangerous are females — if you approach its nest even accidentally, it will bite you. Thankfully, the bites aren’t poisonous, but triggerfish have extremely sharp teeth, so the injuries it can cause need serious medical attention. If you know about any other sea animals that we haven’t told about, let us know in the comment section below!

10 Traits of Toxic Parents Who Ruin Their Children’s Lives
 
10:22
Raising children is very difficult and no one has the right to judge someone's particular parenting style. However, some parenting mistakes are more dangerous than others and can seriously damage your child’s health. This video will help you find out what actually affects a child’s psyche and teach those who have toxic parents how they can deal with this issue. When raised by narcissistic parents, children suffer from slowed-down emotional development or none at all, will most likely suffer from depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder when they become adults and grow up into an adult that’s either a self-saboteur or a person ready to sacrifice everything to achieve high goals. Children of toxic parents live in constant fear and apprehension. They’ll grow up into teenagers forced to listen to their parents' complaints, adjust to a "complicated situation", put themselves in their parents' shoes, and help, tolerate, and console them. Toxic parents might not see anything wrong whatsoever in telling all the relatives, neighbors, and family friends that deeply sensitive information the child was pressured into disclosing. These types of parents instill an inferiority complex in their kids since they don't wanna see their child try new things and succeed. Their narcissistic self-love generates fear at the thought of their child becoming better, smarter, and more successful than they are. These parents seem to “generously” offer something that their children don’t really need, but any refusal causes resentment. A grown kid starts thinking, "My parents probably just want some company and wanna feel needed." So they accept the help, thank the parents, and offer something in return. But there's no happy ending here because the parents will always remind their children of that "favor" they did for them. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS The effect of toxic parenting on kids 0:53 Traits of toxic parents: 10. "Fear me yet love me." 2:01 9. "You need to deal with adult problems, but you still have no rights." 2:34 8. "Be the best but don't forget that you're not special." 3:14 7. "Open up to me but don't be surprised by ridicule." 3:54 6. "You're bad so don't even bother trying to become better." 4:31 5. "You can be successful but only if there’s something in it for me." 5:28 4. "Do exactly what I say, but it’s your fault if you fail." 6:15 3. "You’re such an inconvenience, but don't leave me alone." 6:38 2. "Accept our help but stop exploiting us." 7:11 1. "Trust me, but I’m still gonna go through your stuff." 7:58 How to handle a toxic parent? 8:44 SUMMARY -When raised by narcissistic parents, children don't feel loved, heard, or seen, believe that how they look is more important than who they really are as a person. They don't feel support when they try to develop their true self. -For toxic parents, an emotional attack is synonymous with love and attention. -Kids of toxic parents probably believe that it's specifically their bad behavior that makes their father abuse alcohol to calm himself down. -Even if their kid performs much better than they did once upon a time, all of the child's achievements are taken for granted. -Toxic parents force their children to be sincere and later use the same personal information against the kids. -Toxic parents eagerly discuss their child's failures and flaws. -They enjoy boasting about their kids’ success so that others envy them. Plus, a successful child is a guaranteed better life for parents. -Parents treat their child like an object: they make all the plans and expect their kids to follow along. -Toxic parents never want to let their children go. Yet they’re always pointing out that the house, the money, and the food belongs to them. -The kids turn into prisoners in either case: if they refuse their parents' help, they’re ungrateful brats. If they accept, they’ll always be made to feel indebted. -If you try to restrict access to your personal territory, your parents accuse you of distrust or even hiding something illegal or immoral. -We don’t pick our parents, and we can’t really change them. The only thing we can change is our reaction to their actions. Limit access to your personal territory. Choose your personal interests over those of your parents.

Then wash in the usual way. - To prevent the nail polish lid from sticking to the bottle after use, lubricate the thread inside the lid or on the bottle with petroleum jelly.

Bright Side would like to share 20 simple but superb habits you can use to protect your hair and help it to grow healthy and strong. Other videos you might like: 9 Tips to Keep Hair Clean and Voluminous Longer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkk7MPl1iRI& 8 Hairstyles That Show a Man’s True Character https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpnqHvmJU4U& 10 Hair Care Myths You Should Stop Believing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSA0fWSeaG0& TIMESTAMPS: Vinegar 0:35 Avocado mask 1:02 Egg yolk 1:34 Avoid washing hair every day 1:57 Sulfate-free shampoo 2:19 Braid your hair before bed 2:44 A scalp massage 3:03 Use sun-protect products 3:21 Avoid hair dryer 3:51 Never sleep with wet hair 4:07 Avoid heat styling tools 4:29 Argan oil 4:49 Never brush wet hair 5:10 Avoid dyeing 5:29 Satin or silk 5:46 Trim your hair regularly 6:09 Consume biotin 6:28 Relax 6:48 Eat well 7:12 Nourish your hair 7:35 SUMMARY: - Dampen your hair with some plain white vinegar after using shampoo, and leave it for a couple of minutes before rinsing. Your hair will be brighter and shinier from the first time you try this. - Try to wash your hair with raw egg yolks instead of shampoo. Although it may seem weird, this natural product moisturizes your hair better than many commercial beauty products. - Sulfate is one of the most harmful agents out there that strips your hair of its natural moisture. There are dozens of sulfate-free products on the market to help you care for and strengthen your hair. - Always braid your hair loosely before you go to sleep. It will give you beautiful waves in the morning, prevent your hair from tangling and breaking when you move in your sleep. - Massage your scalp every day with a wooden bristle brush to activate blood circulation and encourage hair growth. - Use sunscreens or special summer hair styling products that will protect your hair from chlorine and salt water. - Do not blow dry your hair too often. Let it air dry naturally. - Hair styling tools such as hot straighteners or curling irons can overheat and damage your hair. - Argan oil has a lot of beneficial effects on your hair. Use it for split ends and a dry scalp, or as a leave-in conditioner. - Do not brush your hair when it’s wet — it makes it weaker and susceptible to breaking. - If you want to make your hair healthier, it’s better to use a satin or silk pillowcase for your bed. - Keep in mind that nothing damages your hair more than stress. No matter how much you take care of yourself, if you do not reduce your stress levels, your hair will never be as beautiful as it could be. - Your hair is nourished by everything you eat. If you avoid protein, natural fats, and vitamins in your diet, your hair will be affected. - Healthy and shiny hair can be difficult to achieve if you don't take care of your hair. Nourish your hair regularly with natural or commercially-made masks rich in vitamins and oils.

8 Vital Body Parts You Know Nothing About
 
04:36
The human body is a whole universe with its laws and mysteries, many of which we have yet to unravel. Have you ever wondered why we'd got a groove between our nose and top lip? It’s called the philtrum, and it exists for a reason. Most specialists agree that the philtrum developed in humans in prehistoric times and played the role of smell amplifier. In addition, sometimes a wrongly shaped philtrum tells of autism or other conditions. I'm quite certain you didn't know about that. So, we at Bright Side decided to tell you about 8 vital parts of our body to which we often pay no attention. TIMESTAMPS: The anatomical snuffbox 0:31 The big toe 1:01 Glabella 1:26 Frenulum of the tongue 1:55 Tragus and antitragus 2:17 Tonsils 2:41 Nail cuticles 3:14 The philtrum 3:47 #bodyparts #nailcuticles #anatomy Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - If you stretch your thumb a bit, you’ll see a small triangular pit at its base. This is what medics call an anatomical snuffbox: in the past, people used it to snuff tobacco. - Because of the peculiar shape of the big toe, we can infinitely balance in a standing position, which is one of the main differences between humans and other mammals. - Tap your finger a few times between your eyebrows. If your reflexes are fine, you’ll feel a slight tension in your eyes and want to blink. - This little fold beneath your tongue has an important function: it fixates the tongue in the mouth and makes it less flexible. - Here’s an interesting fact: the names of these little bumps in our ears come from the Latin word tragos — "a goat." The tragus helps us hear sounds coming from behind, amplifying them and detecting their source. - The tonsils are the first barrier protecting us from bacteria and viruses by secreting lymphocytes. When they inflame and get removed, the body still has other protective mechanisms, but it’s safer with the tonsils. - The cuticles an important function: they protect our hands from harmful bacteria that are especially abundant in big cities. If bacteria get into your body through a tiny wound made by cutting the cuticle, washing your hands won’t help.

10 Terrifying Places Science Still Can't Explain
 
13:01
How to Learn More about the Earth. The scientific community has made great strides in discovering a lot about the planet we call home. Yet there’s still so much we don’t know! In this video, we’ll tell you about 10 of the most mysterious and bewildering places on Earth that even scientists can’t explain! Magnetic Hill, Skeleton Lake, Boiling River and a Dancing Forest. Plus, some mysterious waters where ships disappear. TIMESTAMPS Skeleton Lake 0:56 The Hessdalen Lights 1:53 Lake Anjikuni 2:41 The Devil's Sea 3:43 The Lake Michigan Triangle 4:44 Magnetic Hill 6:11 The Devil's Kettle 6:57 The Patomskiy Crater 7:57 The Boiling River 9:55 The Dancing Forest 11:16 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Every year when the snow and frozen water melt, Roopkund Lake in the Himalayas reveals 300 skeletons dumped in it. -The Hessdalen Lights occasionally turn yellowish or reddish, and nobody knows what makes them change color. -Canadian fur trapper Joe Labelle came to a village located on the shore of Lake Anjikuni to find it completely deserted. -Some folks call the Devil's Sea the Pacific Bermuda Triangle since ships and planes tend to disappear there with the same regularity as its North Atlantic counterpart. -The Lake Michigan Triangle has been gaining its notorious reputation since 1891 when a ship disappeared in its waters, along with its crew of seven sailors. -If you turn off the engine of your car and leave it in neutral on the Magnetic Hill, your vehicle will start climbing ahead, possibly at a speed of 12 miles per hour. -About a mile before the river empties into Lake Superior, a rocky outcrop splits it in two. And while the eastern flow drops 50 feet down and keeps flowing into the lake, the western part travels 10 feet down into a giant hole... and vanishes. -Located in Siberia, the Patomskiy Crater is described as a mound with a perfectly circular shape. It’s as big as a 25-story building, sits right in the middle of a wooded area with its top chopped off, and presents quite a sight. -The Boling River really is steaming hot. At a temperature of 187°F, it’s not exactly boiling, but it’s pretty close. -Located on the thin Curonian Spit that divides the Baltic Sea from the Curonian Lagoon is one of the strangest places on Earth. The pine trees in this forest have shockingly unusual shapes: they twist in spirals and circles along the ground.

11 Secrets to Memorize Things Quicker Than Others
 
10:46
We learn things throughout our entire lives, but we still don’t know everything because we forget a lot of information. Bright Side will tell you about 11 simple memorizing tips that will help you remember everything and improve your memory. TIMESTAMPS Why we forget things 1:04 How to remember everything 2:00 How to memorize something quickly 2:30 How to memorize something for a long time 3:20 Try to understand what you learn 4:17 Learn the most necessary information 5:11 Serial position effect 5:45 Interference theory 6:06 Learn opposite things 7:22 Build your own «mind palace» 7:22 Use «nail words» 8:19 Make up stories 8:40 Use a tape recorder 9:10 Visualize 9:51 Choose only the best materials 9:59 SUMMARY - Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly. A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going. - There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something. - To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it. The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes. You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax. Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours. And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information. Do you know any other memorizing tips? If yes, share them in the comment section below!

A One-Day Starvation Secret Got the Nobel Prize
 
09:34
You probably know that most tissues in your body regularly replace their cells with new ones. Different organs need their own time to renew completely. And some tissues don't replace their cells at all. But have you ever wondered where the dead cells of your body end up? Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, a Japanese cell biologist, spent years studying how human cells get rid of their waste. If this process in the body doesn't work correctly, a person can develop type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, some age-related diseases, and even cancer. And it turned out that when you fast, your cells live longer and produce more energy!

Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine for elucidating "autophagy," an intracellular process that degrades and recycles proteins: By Kyodo/Associated Press/East News, https://www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/52380261/i/0/t/0 Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The first person who discovered autophagy was Belgian biochemist Dr. Christian de Duve. For this discovery, he got the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974. - Surprisingly, studies show that they still have approximately the same amount of proteins and carbohydrates in their digestive system as they would if they ate animal protein. - The body can use its own protein in the form of dead and damaged cells and bacteria which have been previously stored away. - If your natural recycling mechanism doesn't work, damaged cells and their parts start to accumulate in the body. And it ends up unable to neutralize cancer cells and cells infected by dangerous viruses and bacteria. As a result, this can lead to various serious illnesses. - Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi found out that autophagy gets more intensive when the body is undergoing some stress. Such stress can be fasting, calorie restriction, or even starvation. - In all his studies, Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi used starvation and fasting to encourage the body to break down toxic cells and get rid of all the garbage. - Intermittent fasting, which is alternating the periods of eating and fasting, can help your body to clean itself. Besides, it can help you to lose weight and speed up your metabolism. - If you're a newbie in the world of fasting and the practice looks a bit intimidating, start with skipping your meals. In general, it's enough to skip one meal a day to boost your metabolism and trigger cleansing processes in your body. Just remember that if you've skipped a meal, you shouldn't overeat at the next one. - One more interesting conclusion you can draw from this research is that, despite what some people think, vegetarians don't suffer from a lack of animal protein. They just get it in a different way.

If You Ever See This on Your Backyard, Ask for Help to Remove It!
 
13:27
Here is a list of 12 super dangerous fungi and plants that might grow in your backyard. Some of them look like they come straight out of hell, which makes them quite unappealing, so you will unlikely want to touch them. But some of them actually look more than normal or even adorable, and they might be even more dangerous to you and your family. Promise you will not touch any of them! There are some plants that can easily kill you. TIMESTAMPS Death Cap Conocybe filaris Destroying Angels Clathrus Archeri Devil's Claw Bloody Tooth Porcupine Tomato Fraxinella Giant Hogweed Death Camas Oleander Doll's Eye SUMMARY - Death Cap is the deadliest of them all. It does not come with a name tag and is easy to confuse with edible straw mushrooms and caesar’s mushrooms. It can be found in different parts of Europe. - Conocybe filaris might look cute and innocent but can cause death, or severe pain. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you have most likely seen it growing in the lawns. - Destroying Angels abundantly growing in North America is super toxic and not exactly edible. They belong to the genus Amanita. - Clathrus Archeri looks like it was sent from outer space to destroy the humankind, or straight out of hell to remind us to be nice people. In fact, that thing is more than real and terrestrial. - Devil’s claws come from Arizona and are even used for basket weaving by Native Americans. - Bloody Tooth likes to live in the forests and mountains of North America, Europe, Iran, and South Korea. - Porcupine Tomato comes from Madagascar but is not even remotely as cute as the lemurs we all love. It can grow 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide in no time. - Fraxinella, also known as burning bush, dittany, and gas plant thrives in the warm climate of southern Europe, North Africa and most of Asia. 16 to 39 in tall and looking sweet and innocent, it is hiding its killer nature behind the little flowers. - Giant Hogweed comes from the Caucasus Mountain region between the Black and Caspian Seas. It came to Europe in the late 19th century, and a few decades later became wide-spread in America, as well. - Death Camas might look like a great addition to a summer flower composition. However, if you see them growing in the field or your backyard, do not bring them home. - The toxins in Oleander are so powerful even honey made by bees that pollinated its flowers can kill or seriously hurt people. Its leaves and sap can irritate and damage your skin. - Doll's Eye might have a more terrestrial origin, but one thing is true for sure. The entire plant contains cardiogenic toxins. If you dare to eat them, they will immediately affect your cardiac muscle tissue and very likely kill you.

Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science
 
09:37
Why are Japanese people so thin? What do people eat in Japan? While the rest of the world is seeing anywhere from 15 to over 30% of its population severely overweight, Japan has managed to keep that number at just 3.6%. When it comes to health tips, it's better to turn to the country with the longest life expectancy and one of the lowest obesity rates on the planet. If you’re ready to find out how the Japanese manage to stay so effortlessly thin, keep our new video! In Japan, they usually stick to 3 wholesome meals a day that don’t leave them hungry or dealing with sudden cravings. Those who do snack keep it in small quantities and with a lot of moderation. Also, the secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. Dairy products and fruits are consumed in moderation. They tend to stay away from foods with excessive amounts of salt and sugar, like burgers and soda. TIMESTAMPS: Diet 0:50 No snacking 1:39 Fast food 2:02 Eating on time 2:58 Exercise for kids 3:44 Portion sizes 4:27 A great public transportation system 5:20 Tea time 6:15 Dinnerware 7:25 Food as an experience 8:09 #japan #japanesediet #japanesefood Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. - Just like the rest of the world, a lot of Japanese people have a hectic schedule that doesn’t leave a lot of time or opportunity to prepare a home-cooked meal. In that case, they can turn to their version of fast food, which is usually a lot healthier and resembles home-style cooking. - Most Japanese people have very regulated meal times. They eat 3 filling meals a day, with breakfast usually happening between 8 and 9am, lunch from 12 to 1pm, and dinner between 6 and 8pm. - It’s a lot more common for Japanese children to walk or cycle to school. Of course, other countries have a lot of reasons why it might not be efficient or safe for kids to hoof it to class. - Portion sizes have been on a steep rise in the last 20 years throughout the world. For example, countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K. have much larger fast food portions than Japan. - Separate bicycle lanes and plenty of safe areas for pedestrians are common sites in Japan. This allows the Japanese to naturally burn calories as they commute to and from work or school every day. - Tea, especially the green variety, is the number one beverage in Japan. Green tea has been praised for having a ton of major health benefits, like increasing metabolism, burning fat, fighting anxiety, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, to name a few. - The practice of using chopsticks also helps in weight management, since they make you eat more slowly and in smaller bites. This slow process of eating helps people catch when they’re feeling full and avoid eating too much. The fact that food is served on a bunch of plates also slows down the process. - The number one way that the Japanese stay thin has to do with removing distractions and being mindful about the process of food consumption. Eating in Japan is treated with respect.

TIMESTAMPS: Popcorn 0:36 Celery 0:59 Eggplant 1:16 Oranges, grapefruits, and tangerines 1:39 Melon and watermelon 2:07 Algae 2:21 Zucchini 2:37 Cucumber 2:51 Beetroot 3:08 Eggs 3:21 Pineapple 3:35 Apples and plums 3:50 Salad 4:03 Berries: currant, cranberry, strawberry 4:10 Cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower 4:27 #weightloss #excessweight #perfectfit SUMMARY: - If you fry popcorn without butter and sugar (with a little salt, for instance), you can eat it without fear. This way, a portion (about a cup) only contains 31 kcal. - Celery stems are 95% water. They help you lose excess weight and detoxify your body thanks to their diuretic effect. A medium-sized stalk of celery contains only 6 calories! - A portion of eggplant grilled or baked without oil makes for 24 kcal, so you can enjoy this savory veggie without any limitations. - A large amount of fruit is not recommended if you want to lose weight, yet citrus fruits are an exception here. They’re rich in substances like fiber, flavonoids, and vitamin C. - Melon and watermelon are 95% water. With 60-70 kcal per slice, you can eat them day in and day out. These fruits help excrete excess liquid from your body and satiate you well. - Algae, like laminaria, are the best source of iodine. They help your thyroid function normally, keeping your hormones at normal levels and preventing you from gaining weight. - A portion of zucchini is about 42 kcal. It normalizes your salt-water ratio, improves your intestinal function, and can also be used to lower the energy output of main courses. - A cucumber is 95% water; therefore, this vegetable can quench your thirst easily. And the remaining 5% is a source of vitamins and minerals. - Beetroot is a source of nutrients, such as manganese. They help burn fat, drive your muscles, and regulate your blood sugar. An average portion is just 40 kcal! - You can eat eggs at any time of the day, even at night, without fear of gaining weight. Of course, boiled eggs are better than fried ones. One boiled egg contains about 80 kcal! - The bromelain contained within pineapples actively splits fats and helps metabolize proteins. A slice of pineapple is about 30 kcal. - One apple is only 50 kcal. It makes you feel satiated and regulates your digestion. Plums are rich in vitamin C and potassium, which maintain your heart and vessels. - Salad is a great source of folic acid, and you can eat it by the ton: one leaf of lettuce is 3 kcal! - Currants and cranberries are rich in vitamin C, and the former is also a diuretic, helping get rid of excess water. - A portion of diced cabbage is just 7 kcal. You shouldn’t, of course, only eat cabbage and cauliflower, as their nutrients rival with iodine, but you can easily include these foods a couple of times a week.

11 Signs Your Body Is 100% Unique
 
07:37
We’re going to tell you about exceptional physical skills and characteristics found in only a tiny percentage of people around the world (by the way, the rarest one is the first one). Each person has character traits, peculiar only to him or herself. Aspects of the psyche that are — if present in others at all — extremely rare. But did you know that our bodies can possess many unique features too?! TIMESTAMPS You have a flexible tongue 0:39 22% of people are capable of wiggling one ear 1:35 You can wiggle individual toes 2:06 Darwin’s tubercle 2:48 Diastema 3:23 You can raise one eyebrow 3:45 Dimples on the cheeks 4:16 Holes above the ears 4:54 Hitchhiker’s thumb 5:34 Missing tendon 6:05 You can touch your elbow with your tongue 6:40 SUMMARY - Researchers even went as far as to conduct a special study on the subject. 63% of the test participants managed to fold their tongue into a roll, 14% managed to bend it in half, and less than 1% were able to shape their tongue into a triple pipe. - Approximately 22% of people on the planet are capable of wiggling one ear, while no more than 18% can do it with both ears. But this was not always so: our distant ancestors used to be true virtuosos at making all sorts of movements with these body parts. - No matter how you try, you won’t be able to wiggle each of your toes in turn. That’s because only the big toe and the little toe are fitted with individual muscles, while the rest are controlled en masse by just one set of muscles. - The protruding segment on the inside or outside of the ear is called Darwin’s tubercle. The famous scientist once suggested that this feature was the consequence of the fact that early people’s ears used to be pointy. - Diastema is a gap between the front teeth, occurring in about 20% of humans. From the viewpoint of dentists, it’s an anomaly that requires medical intervention. - Scientists believe that early humans were able to wiggle their eyebrows separately — the way certain present-day species of monkeys do at the sight of danger. - Possessed by approximately 25% of the world’s population, dimples are a defect in the structure of the zygomatic muscle, which is responsible for smiling. In people with this physiological feature, a small bundle of the muscle gets attached to the bone. - Approximately 5% of people on the planet are born with a small hole above one or both ears. Interestingly, in the USA, such people constitute less than 1% of the population, while in Asia this distinction is diagnosed in approximately 10% of newborns. - Hitchhiker’s thumb is a physiological phenomenon in which the upper phalanx of the thumb can bend 90 degrees in the direction opposite to the palm. This hyperextensibility is caused by the presence of a special gene, known as the "bendy thumb gene." And such a feature is inherited and occurs in about 25% of people. - Gather all the fingers of one hand together, and tense your wrist. If the tendon on the inner side of the wrist doesn’t become visible, you must be one of the 14% of people who don’t have the long palmar muscle. - It is believed that no more than 1% of people in the world have this ability. To perform the trick, you need to have a particularly short forearm and a long tongue. #humanbody Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

13:59
For millions of people around the world, their biological and their emotional age are two completely different things. Here is an easy but very accurate test that will determine your mental age. RULES The rules are simple: answer the question of picking the first thing that comes to your mind. Seriously, do not overthink. If you get 9 as your mental age, it does not mean your IQ is low; it only shows your perception of the world is young and bright. If you get 60 while you are 22, it’s not too bad either. It just means you are really wise. For each answer, you pick, add a certain number of points. You get 1 point for each time you choose number 1 option; you get 2 points for option 2, and so on. There will be 4 options for each question.

You always know what to do, but you also perfectly remember how to have fun, which is no less important, right? • 34-37 points: 29-55 years old Your mind level is middle-aged. You know that we are responsible for what we do, and you don’t allow your emotions to rule your mind. It’s a great age for intellectual activity and self-realization. Career, family life, or both – this is your time to shine! • 38-40 points: 55 and older The age of stability when you don’t have to prove anything to anyone and know how to live for yourself.

7 MOVES TO REDUCE YOUR SIDE FAT QUICKLY
 
03:29
How to get rid of back fat? There is nothing more frustrating than putting on your Sunday best and noticing your back and armpit fat rolls poking out. As a rule, we neglect our backs and armpits during workouts as we focus on the parts of the body we see in the mirror more often like our abs, legs, and butt. We don’t notice how we slouch, depriving the muscles of physical activity. As a result, they become slack, and annoying folds appear. Perform our simple but effective exercises regularly for 2 to 3 weeks to tone up your back muscles!

Stand straight with feet shoulder-width apart. Raise one hand up, and put the palm on the back of your head. Take a dumbbell in your other hand, and lower it down. Then make short bends toward your arm with the dumbbell. Do 3 sets of 15 to 20 reps. - Push-ups are one of the best exercises to tone your back muscles. Get into a high plank position.

10 Extinct Animals Scientists Are Ready to Bring Back
 
10:09
Do you know that scientists are almost ready to bring back some species that have been long gone? A T-Rex and other dangerous creatures aren't on the VIP list, so we won't see them in the not-so-distant future. But some of our most beloved characters from the Ice Age movies can be brought back to life! Instead of using the controversial term “cloning,” scientists prefer to say “make un-extinct.” To-may-to, to-mah-to, the idea is the same. An animal that died out thousands of years ago can't be brought back to life unless it's cloned. And therein lies the problem. For successful cloning, scientists need to have almost completely undamaged animal DNA. That's why some species are more likely to be resurrected than others. Those animals that died out not so long ago are better candidates for un-extinction. They might still be preserved in museums or in permafrost that formed during the most recent ice age. TIMESTAMPS: The woolly mammoth 2:01 The saber-toothed tiger 3:00 The Moa 3:48 The ground sloth 4:27 The dodo 5:19 Woolly rhinoceros 6:12 The Irish elk 6:44 The Baiji river dolphin 7:26 The Siberian unicorn 8:05 The Neanderthal 8:55 #extinctanimals #siberianunicorn #iceage Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - While most of the woolly mammoths died out about 10,000 years ago, there was a population of about 500 to 1,000 of them living on Wrangel Island as recent as 1650 B.C.E. The woolly mammoth was roughly the size of an African elephant. - The saber-toothed tiger was about the size of your typical modern-day big cats. It weighed from 200 to 600 pounds and could get up to 13 feet long. The saber-toothed tiger usually had a muscular neck, bobbed tail, powerful front legs, and dagger-like teeth that protruded from the upper jaw and could grow just under a foot long! - The moa was a huge flightless bird that looked kinda like an ostrich, minus the wings. We know of about 10 members of the moa family. Some were no bigger than a turkey while others reached a height of 10 feet, making this bird the largest that has ever inhabited our planet. - Ground sloths are likely to be successfully resurrected since they were still walking the Earth about 8,000 years ago. Even better, some samples of their DNA have already been received from undamaged hairs of this animal. - The dodo became extinct just 80 years after it had been discovered. Its only known habitat was Mauritius Island, where the dodo had been living peacefully for who knows how long until the Dutch showed up in the 1590s. - Besides the woolly mammoth, there’s one more fluffy extinct creature, the woolly rhinoceros, that scientists want to bring back. This animal still lived in the Arctic snows pretty recently, about 10,000 years ago. This furry rhino is quite famous too; it often makes an appearance in ancient cave art, like in the French Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave. - The Irish elk, also called the giant deer, was one more animal that didn't quite manage to survive the Ice Age. This creature mostly died out about 12,000 years ago. But researchers have discovered Irish elk fossils in Siberia that are only 7,000 to 8,000 years old. - The Baiji river dolphin went extinct in 2006, making it the first cetacean (that’s whales, dolphins, and porpoises) to die out directly due to the negative impact of human activity. It's obvious by now that since the extinction is quite recent, there’s a sea of DNA samples at hand that make resurrection pretty much a guaranteed success. - A Siberian unicorn skull discovered in Kazakhstan proved that the animal had actually disappeared just 29,000 years ago. That’s good news for people who wanna see a real unicorn someday! - Bringing the Neanderthal back would be the easiest task of them all. Scientists already have a map of its genome. It’s not a question of whether or not we can, but if we should… Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/
