Mirrors

Lights & mirrors: A clutter-free home decor setup on a budget. Mirrors can never be enough in a house if you want to create something fascinating on a low budget. There are various rooms in the house that can be changed with a tinge of mirrors and lights.

Living Room – Buy a mirror that is large in size and has a bulky borderline. Choose a bright color or according to your home decor theme. A living room has many places to accommodate a large mirror but find a place where the window is in the center. Position the mirror carefully and remove everything that is excess on the eyes. It will expand the symmetry of the room and will create an illusion of a hall.

Dining Room – Dining rooms generally do not entertain mirrors but if you have made your mind on it, then bring a square-shaped designer mirror that goes well with the kitchen. If you have a dining table in or close to your kitchen, then it will be more appropriate to use a mirror on the side end of the table or a cabinet would be perfect. The mirror creates an effect of more people while you dine.

Bedroom – The bedroom is the most suitable place for hanging a mirror. Now, it depends on the room dimensions and space available to choose what type of mirror suits your bedroom. If the room is spacious then, you can opt for the flowered-shaped circular mirror on the back wall of your bed. If your room size is small then bring an average-sized mirror and place it near the window, which will scatter the light throughout the room.

Hallway – It is reasonable to hang a mirror in the hallway or lobby but in an artistic manner. Go for a small set of mirrors in symmetrical shapes and it will instantly complement your hallway.

Lights

The functionality of light is far more crucial than we think because whatever decor you decide to implement in your home until there is alleviated lighting, your interiors will not be up to the mark. Therefore, lights play a major role in highlighting what’s behind the door.

Living room – The usual ceiling lights in your home only highlight the furniture with a faded sparkle, while if you go for ambient lightings, such as a table lamp, wall-mounted lamp, or a hanging lamp then it acts like a spotlight and highlights the perfections of your decor. The major reason behind choosing perfect lighting is that it doesn’t light up every corner of the house rather it creates an effect of organized space for any outsider.

For the living room choose some hanging lights like a chandelier or fancy lamps, right around the corners of a ceiling fan. It will reimburse the light on the furniture with yellow and orange shades, so your space look akin to a luxury boutique hotel.

Dining room – This is the place where the light is required the most, and people do quite the opposite because they think it is an unnecessary expenditure. But it is not true at all, as light brightens up the entire dining area, and makes it convenient to relish the drinks and food. If you have a separate dining room area then go for wall mounted lights, which deliver an opulent vibe to the area. If you have an interconnected kitchen and dining table then choose some floor lamps that complement the kitchen cabinets and dining table. You will see for yourself, the difference in an organization before and after the makeover. It is the added advantage of proper and smart lighting, that percolates the lights through reflective surfaces and builds an apparition that classifies the space.

Bedroom – The lights in the bedroom should be selected very carefully as it marks personal territory. Try and keep your bedroom organized so that lights will impose a kinetic effect on the decor of the space, which in turn demarcates the organized and unorganized area. It is very important to keep the light source adjacent to the walls, in order for the light to scatter. There is already a source of ambient lighting in your bedroom the side table lamp. But you have to bring in some hanging lights for low lighting and tidy space.

Hallway – The hallway is the most visited space of the home, as it connects every room in the house. Yet, we put the most terrible lighting in the hallway, because it is hardly occupied in terms of possessions, but it shouldn’t be like that. Purchase some fancy and designer wall mounted lights that will transform the place.

Every house has its particulars, but it doesn’t mean you have to remain unorganized and untidy all the time. The lights and mirrors do have the capacity to present your home in a more chic way. Eventually, rooms need to be organized with various furniture like cabinets and a chest of drawers or wardrobes as well. (IANS)

Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Many young and middle-aged people today are dying of sudden heart attacks. Studies show that cardiovascular diseases (CVD) strike Indians a decade earlier compared to their Western counterparts. Why is this happening? How can we prevent it? Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach -- Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine shares an input that could prevent heart attacks at a young age:

Cholesterol is not the culprit, inflammation is: Many people believe that high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are the sole culprits behind their heart attacks. The main reasons behind most heart attacks are inflammation and oxidative damage in the heart, blood vessels, endothelial lining, arteries, and more. While maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important, we cannot blame heart attacks on cholesterol levels alone. What then can you do to keep inflammation in check and your heart strong? Adopt simple lifestyle changes.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either. In India, McDonald's ensures their burgers use the freshest produce, which means that don't use any ordinary lettuce. The iceberg variety was first introduced in India by McDonald's, as early as the 90s, at a time when not many people were familiar with lettuce and used cabbage instead. Lettuce is a key ingredient known for its crunch, its odourless and is ideal for salads, sandwiches and burgers.

The fast food giant collaborated with local Indian suppliers and pioneered the local production of iceberg lettuce in the country. Their lettuce undergoes 30 quality and food safety checks. After harvesting, the lettuce is pre-cooled to a temperate of below 40C at the farm gate to maintain its freshness. It is then transported in refrigerated vehicles to the world-class processing plant where it is shredded to a measured length and width and then washed and cleaned thoroughly before being vacuum-packed.
