  1. Mobiles: People spend more time on the android mobiles checking apps, posting status, pictures etc.  It has become a rigid habit that they are glued to the phone even during hours where concentration and hard work is required.  Imagine a student playing phone game during exam preparation.  It spoils his future in a hazardous way.  Corporates find it difficult to tackle employees spending more time on their personal gadgets.  This results in delays, errors, losses and whole lots of frustration.

5 Ways Technology Can Help You Lose Weight This Winter

Summer is the best time to lose weight!

There is so much that you do and would love to do when it is balmy outside but I cannot say the same thing about winters. Winters make me lethargic and make me shut myself up in a room with a fireplace I rather not do any physical activity other than carrying loads of warm clothes on my back!

But recently, I relied on that winter can be a good time to lose weight too. Here is how:

  1. Did you know that cold air is actually useful in losing calories?

I would have laughed at this prospect had I not done a thorough research on this. It turns out that the cold air is beneficial in helping people lose their body weight because it uses up the fats that need to keep the body warm in the winter.

  1. Shivering me suppose is really good too!

When a person shivers for ten to fifteen minutes in close to zero degrees temperature, it is actually a reaction that the body manifests in the form of muscle contraction. Also turns out that this muscle contraption is what can also be called as winter workout.

  1. Drinking cold water:

Same logic as cold air because when your body takes cold water it has to burn it down with calories to make it warm inside.

  1. Hanky pinkie!!

Well, this may sound naughty but yes higher levels of serotonin in the blood can increase the potential for faster weight loss. It’s proved; stop looking at me like that, will you!’

  1. All the more of these reasons why to eat berries!

The antioxidants and the phytonutrients in berries of all forms and shapes are what will give your body the impetus to lose quickly beside giving it a lot of immunity from cold-related diseases like the flu, etc.
