October 26, 2016: Do you ever feel that your life is heading nowhere and it has no goal? Many people create a bucket list that is full of crazy, adventurous activities. The main reason behind creating a bucket list is to live every moment to the fullest. Here are the few things that you can try:

  1. Defy gravity

Go for skydiving. It is the perfect combination of excitement and serenity. Once the parachute opens, the heart rate will get steady, just take a moment and enjoy the view.


  1. Northern lights:

Of all the natural phenomenon in the world, nothing compares to the beauty of the northern lights. The lights are like dancing colors of the sky. The Algonquian Indians of Canada believed that the fire was built by the Great Spirit.

  1. Verify for yourself that the Earth is round:

Set sail in one direction and do not stop until you’re home. Journey around the North of the Arctic Circle around the summer would be perfect. You can spend a night watching the sun circle above the horizon.

  1. Climb your own Mount Everest:

It is believed that Gods stay in the mountains. When Petrarch climbed 6000 feet and saw the view from the top of Mount Ventaux, he said, “What I had read of Athos and Olympus seemed less incredible as I myself witnessed the same things”. The reward would be unbelievable: to stand on the highest bit and get the perfect view. Maybe you would finally understand why the mountains are calling.

  1. Go on a road trip:

It is said that the journey is a destination; a road trip is an adventure. Do not make a plan. Avoid the question,” Are we there yet?” It’s all about the fun, the talk and the landscape. Enjoy the moment.

  1. Conquer a fear:

Lucas Jonkman said,” Fight your fears and you’ll be in a battle forever. Face your fear and you’ll be forever”. Face your fear that has been putting limits on your full potential and let your breakthrough inspire other people.

  1. Donate something

Donate something that will bring change in someone’s life. Be it your hair, your blood or any other thing. Helping others will give you a feeling of satisfaction which is unbeatable.

  1. Bury a time capsule

Bury few of your favorite things in places where a stranger can dig it up. Leave a note with it telling him how these much things matter to you.

  1. Take someone you love to a romantic place

The place should not be a local 5 star restaurant. Take your special someone to Paris or Santorini. Any romantic place would work where you can be close to nature and to your special someone.

  1. African Safari

African Safari is an affordable travel choice. Watching wild animals roaming freely and falling asleep would be a treat for the eyes. There would be many magnificent natural sights. You can meet people from all around the world in Africa.

Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

By TS Kler

COVID-19 has led to complications and health risks manifold for patients with non-communicable diseases. Almost 75-80 percent of the COVID patients don't require hospitalisation and can recover at home with teleconsultation, but COVID-19 infections can leave the patient with long-term side effects. There are many instances where symptoms of COVID-19 have persisted for several months. Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

According to research published in the European Heart Journal, Covid-19 patients who suffer cardiac arrest have a higher possibility of dying as compared to those who are not infected with it, and especially women are at an increased risk of death for the same reason. The virus may directly breach the ACE2 receptor cells, within the myocardium tissue and cause direct viral harm. COVID can result in inflammation of the heart muscles which is known as myocarditis and it can lead to heart failure over time, if not taken care of.

People with a pre-existing heart problem need to be extra cautious. A significant number of patients have suffered cardiac arrest during the recovery period, often resulting in death. Expert suggests that even though the COVID virus wanes, the immune response continues to be hyper-active and that often ends up attacking other organs. It has been observed that almost 80 per cent of these patients have had cardiac arrests 2-3 weeks after testing COVID positive.

When we are experiencing loneliness, it can be easy to slip into the habit of saying no to social activities.

By N. Lothungbeni Humtsoe

The festive season is a time of joy. Some people truly love it, but for many, it can trigger feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Feeling lonely is common and completely normal -- whether or not we're living through this pandemic. The social pressure to "be happy" can be relentless, but it is important to take a proactive approach to meet not only our emotional needs but also to maintain our mental stability and well-being. With the pandemic, holidays are likely to be challenging, instead, meet them head-on with a renewed dedication and a proactive mindset to avoid 'holiday blues'.

Kanchan Rai, Mental and Emotional Well-being Coach, Founder, Let Us Talk, mentions ways to turn your loneliness into action this season:

Say yes to socializing: When we are experiencing loneliness, it can be easy to slip into the habit of saying no to social activities. Seclusion can make it challenging to feel driven and the mere thought of physically seeing people can lead to stress. Hence it is recommended to saying yes to mingling to help build your confidence. Something as simple as going for a walk with a friend or chatting with your loved ones over the phone can make a huge difference.

Ahead of the Windows 11 launch, Microsoft is rolling out some updates to Edge

Ahead of the Windows 11 launch, Microsoft is rolling out some updates to Edge that include the addition of tab groups. Users will be able to assemble collections of tabs to make their browser a little less chaotic.

To create a group, hold the control button and choose the tabs you want to include, then select "Add tabs to new group" from the right-click menu, Engadget reported on Friday. Users can customise the label with a different colour for each group. When users hover over a tab, they will be able to see a preview of the web page as well.

Microsoft Edge is also getting some handy shopping features, the report said. The browser can give swift access to reviews and ratings for more than 5 million products. When users are on a product page, they can click the blue tag on the address bar and see expert reviews from reliable sources, as well as the average consumer star rating from various retailers.

When they do figure out what to buy, Microsoft aims to help them complete the transaction a bit faster. The new personalised news feed called Microsoft Start is integrated into the browser. Users will see headlines and articles relevant to their interests from a range of publishers when they open a new tab. (IANS/ MBI)
