FRUIT FACTS ( Muskmelon )

  • The muskmelon or cantaloupe is a perfect summer fruit. It's high water content can help take care of the fluid loss that our bodies go through due to perspiration in this season. It also helps to combat the heat in the body and thus, prevents heat-related problems during summer.

  • This fruit is good for people who want to lose weight because it isn't high in calories or sugar, and can work as a great snack for those in-between-mealtimes when hunger tugs you towards unhealthy food items.

  • The fruit is high in dietary fibre and helps people suffering from constipation. This fruit is great for menstruating women as it helps reduce heavy flow and clots.If you are looking for a healthy and younger skin, this is what you should include in your daily diet.Source:

What is HAPPINESS ? Ever given it a thought ?
Many of us say: if I had this or If I had that .........I would be a happy person.
Is it only the material things like buying clothes, Jewellery etc. etc. that can make a person happy.
We cannot buy happiness. These things can only give a short-term happiness. The inner happiness comes when one realises and recognizes all the good things we are blessed with and be grateful instead of craving for external objects. Only when you have satisfaction with your life you can achieve this. It requires some effort.We are as happy as we make our minds to be.

Here is my HAPPINESS list:
Helping the needy.
Pursuing a hobby.
Cozy meal with spouse.
Listening to music.
Being appreciative.
