How wine affects our mood

Martin Luther said, “Beer is made by men, wine by God.” This is probably true as you don’t really see many people drinking wine publicly in the street as you see people drinking beer everywhere. Drinking wine is a ritual. You want it to be special. And you usually drink it with someone special. Unless you are having a really bad day and you are drinking alone while searching for free adult games to spend your alone time in a fun way.

But even when you drink it alone there is still a magic feeling to it. You drink wine when you want to celebrate something like an anniversary or promotion, when you go out on a date or maybe just because you feel like it. But usually, there is some background why you are drinking this heavenly liquid. You are happy and excited and you want to keep feeling that way or if you are trying to drown your sorrows, with wine you are doing it elegantly. No one will call you a drunkard if you drink wine. Wine is divine.

There are also many therapeutic effects besides the emotional ones. Antioxidants present in red wine are famously good for vascular health in general and they help with blood flow and circulation. This is one of the reasons you choose wine if you are wishing for your date to be successful. Healthy blood flow contributes to sexual arousal. You can thank histamine, tyramine, spermidine and serotonin for getting activated after just a few sips. Moderate quantity will increase your libido just enough to feel confident and appealing. In the worst-case scenario, if your date doesn’t share the same vibes you are feeling, you can always count on online games for your devices. This combo will surely help you get rid of any tension and it will make your life feel lighter. 

If you want to merge an exotic adventure with wine drinking, there is an underwater wine cellar paradise on the bottom of the Adriatic sea waiting for you to get your hands on the bottle of your choice. It is located in Croatia, on the Peljesac peninsula. They make premium wines, bottle them and preserve them in amphoras they put on the sea bottom. You scuba dive in full equipment and search for your own amphora somewhere on the sunken boat. That’s one way of having a hell of a Mediterranean date!

You may have heard about buchette del vino, aka wine windows that are getting popular once again in Florence, Italy. These are holes in fences big enough for a bottle, used to safely sell bottles of wine to thirsty passengers, with human contact reduced to the minimum. They were first introduced in the XVI century when Cosimo I de’ Medici (Grand Duke of Tuscany) decreed that people could sell wine from their cellars and avoid taxes by direct sale, evading any middlemen. The windows continued their use later in the 1630s when northern Italy faced the plague outbreak. 

As 2020 has affected all of us in different ways, many of us reached for wine consolation and luckily some clever people thought of reinventing the use for these windows and safely hand us the very needed fluid solace. You can also get ice cream, coffee or Aperol Spritz from these windows. But nothing beats the original!

Even Alexander Fleming acknowledged that penicillin cures, but wine makes people happy. And cheers to that!

Revitalizing Your Relationship

When you have been in a relationship for a long time, you may find that the romance starts to wane. While you may both still love each other, your time is taken up by other things and this leaves little time for romance. Many couples enjoy a lot of romance at the start of the relationship but once they have been together for a long time, this part of the relationship starts to fizzle away. However, it is important to try and keep the romance alive.

When couples want to add fresh life to their physical relationship, they often invest in things such as intimate products. However, when it comes to injecting more romance into the relationship, you need to do things that are from the heart and meaningful. The good news is that you do not have to spend a fortune when it comes to being romantic and showing your partner how much you care. There are various things you can do, some of which we will look at in this article.

Some Romantic Ways to Show You Care

Being romantic with your partner from time to time is important – even though they may know you love them it is nice to show it as well. There are some simple and effective ways in which you can inject a little more romance into your relationship.

One thing you can do is to whisk your partner off for an impromptu romantic picnic one afternoon. You can get some delicious picnic food in, get a cool bag for chilled wine and drinks, and then head to a local park or beach where you can both relax. This is a great way for you both to unwind, spend some quality time together, and enjoy the great outdoors.

Another thing you may want to consider is rustling up a fabulous romantic meal for your partner at home. If the weather is nice, you can even set up your table on the patio and have romantic twinkling fairy lights. While this might sound daunting, you don’t have to have superb culinary skills to cook for your significant other! Just simply follow an online recipes and you will be sure to impress your partner.

Romance can also be about having some fun, so another thing you can do is arrange a fun day out as a couple. You could go to an exciting theme park where you can stroll hand in hand and enjoy the excitement of the rides. Or you may want to go on a fun date to a place you used to go to when you first met such as going to the movies or a favorite restaurant.

These are all great ways of bringing back a little romance into your relationship while also having a little fun.

How to Forget an Ex-Girlfriend

Sometimes life divides us. This rarely happens by mutual agreement and for objective reasons. Usually, it goes well, nothing portends disasters, and then you find out that they cheat on you, you have stopped being loved, or it just got boring with you. It may seem that these problems can be solved, but you love her so much. Still, you break up, your ex has a new beautiful life, and you collect the remnants of male pride in the corners of all the bars. Attempts to drown melancholy in a glass of whiskey are almost always unsuccessful. Therefore, we propose to act in a completely different way.

  1. Realize what it is for
    At the moment when a girl breaks up with you, there is emptiness, a wild burning sensation in the chest, which doesn’t let you live a normal life. You should fill this void. But how can you fill it out? You should realize why you need a girl who doesn’t love you. Try to find out why you need a relationship at all. Is there something important for you? There is one great tip: if a person wants to leave you, help open the door. There are a lot of girls in the world who will give you great love. Don’t forget about it. Life doesn’t end on one person, yes, it’s bad, yes, you miss, but it always passes.
  2. Try to be busy
    After the relationship ends, most men have free time that they used to spend on a partner. This chance should be used for self-development and the achievement of new heights. Having set a goal and trying to achieve it, a person leaves no time for empty regrets and meaningless thoughts about what can’t be returned. Career advancement or an exciting hobby may work out here. You can look for a new environment, go on a short trip, take on a serious project at work, start scuba diving – any way will do! In addition, you can start looking for other single women for marriage. Fight fire with fire. This is the only right approach.
  3. Express your emotions
    Most likely, you are angry and annoyed. Your head is torn from thoughts. If you are silent, you can never put an end to a relationship. Make an appointment, call, or write in the messenger everything you think about her and the current situation. If she offended or hurt you, don’t try to be nice in the hope of getting her back. Yes, it is not easy, but if you decide to take this step, then go to the end. You better give vent to emotions. It will be easier for you. Apologize only if there is a reason for it.
  4. Admit that it hurts you
    Many guys choose a denial tactic. They are ready to scream to the world about how they don’t give a damn about this girl. And deep down, they realize that this is a lie. And most importantly, they lie to themselves. It will not let you deal with your feelings. You can run away from them, deny, and “live on.” But what will you come to? You will drag all your baggage from the past into a relationship with a new girl. You will make the same mistakes. So, think about it. You have to learn to live without her.
  5. Don’t look for ways to start it all over
    You said your ex what you think, and now, if your goal is to really forget about the ex, then it’s time to break all ties with her. This doesn’t mean that you must block her on all social networks and delete her from friends as a teenager. Just stop watching her stories and posts, tormenting your head with potential comments that you won’t leave, looking for ways to stealthily see her, driving “by chance” past the girl’s house, and writing to her friends to find out something about her. If the temptation to follow an ex-girlfriend at least in social networks is too great, get out of them altogether. A small digital detox will not hurt anyone, especially in such a situation.

Broken heart, self-help, therapy, Vaughn Lowery, 360 MAGAZINE

THERAPY TO HEAL YOUR BROKEN HEART  

Renowned UK Psychologist has created a new therapeutic method to help people recover from a relationship breakup. Being entirely conducted online, this self-help treatment is the first of its kind. The Breakup CBT Cure is a structured, self-directed therapy, developed by Dr. Sylvia Buet after a seven-year study to address the emotional pain following a breakup, separation, or divorce. This intensive therapeutic approach uses state-of-the-art cognitive-behavioral techniques to promote adjustment to relationship dissolution. This intensive online therapy allows users to obtain results in just eight weeks, although they have up to 12 months if they wish to go at a slower pace.

The Breakup CBT Cure consists of 24 online sessions, divided into eight modules with almost 15 hours of videos and home tasks. Each module targets a specific problem area people usually struggle with following a breakup. Those eight “stuck points” are: ruminating angrily about the breakup, using proximity-seeking or avoidance strategies, experiencing intrusive thoughts, images, or memories, dwelling on the reasons for the breakup, feeling guilty about ending the relationship, feeling excessively attached to the former partner, and engaging in monitoring or checking behaviors. 

The main benefits of the Breakup CBT Cure include: breaking the emotional bond with the ex-partner, managing upsetting memories and intrusions, eliminating the desire to initiate contact or monitoring, accepting the uncertainty about the reasons for the breakup, letting go of unrealistic expectations of reconciliation, coping with negative feelings such as hurt, guilt, and anger, and developing the confidence to achieve one’s own personal goals without relying on the former partner.

The online treatment is based on evidence-based cognitive-behavioral interventions (CBT) and designed to be as effective as face-to-face CBT therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been scientifically proven to improve a wide range of difficulties. Still, no protocol had ever been developed until now to apply its powerful techniques to relationship breakups. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps people identify and modify their maladaptive beliefs and behaviors in order to feel better emotionally and improve their mental health.

BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapist John Dunlop highlights the unique characteristics of the program. Dunlop says, “The Breakup CBT Cure is a radically new form of breakup therapy. This kind of service is not being offered anywhere else, online or offline, because it is based on Dr. Buet’s unique research and methods. It offers tangible results with easy-to-follow and entertaining sessions over eight weeks, making online cognitive behavioral therapy more accessible and user-friendly than ever before.”

Offering the same results as face-to-face CBT therapy, the Breakup CBT Cure is much more cost-effective than traditional counseling because the user can save up to £3000 and go as fast or slow are they wish to obtain the results. Furthermore, a demo video is also available on the official website for people to be able to evaluate the structure and contents before signing up for the entire eight-week program.

Navigating the Dating World in 2019

Finding a partner in life is something that nearly everyone yearns for at one time or another. In order to eventually find that partner, you have to date. However, dating isn’t always easy in the modern day. In fact, the stats show that more than half of all young peoplein the USA don’t have a partner. While some may not want one, others do and just simply haven’t had any luck or don’t want to put in the effort.

It isn’t as simple as it once was. Also, dating or trying to meet people as an adult is even more challenging than when you were in college or high school. People are busier than ever and with so many things seemingly demanding our attention, it can be harder than ever to find the time. With that in mind, this article is going to look at a couple of tips and hints about dating in 2019 and beyond.

Get Online

Just as it has changed nearly every part of our lives, technology has had a huge impact on dating as we know it. We use our phones to text people, send video messages, set up dates, flirt, and so much more. In fact, some stats show that around 40% of couples in the USA first meet online. As a result, getting online can help you get more dates than traditional methods.

Many of these people are using apps to meet each other as they have hundreds of thousands of downloads. If these apps aren’t your forte, there are plenty of online dating sites. There are dating sites based on religion, on life success, and heck, there is even a milf dating site. The point is, using online dating gives you the best chance at meeting someone you wouldn’t have met otherwise.

Work on Yourself

Before you can love someone else, you need to love yourself. It may sound incredibly cliche, but it is true. Too many times people will wait around for the perfect person to come into their lives and don’t want to put in any effort on their end. Unfortunately, that hardly ever works. Instead, you need to work on loving yourself as well as making yourself a more attractive option.

Instead of complaining you can’t get a date, work on the areas of your life that you believe are holding you back. Start hitting the gym, work on getting better at your hobbies, or even go to therapy if you feel it will help you. The sooner you can be happy and proud of who you are, the sooner others will take notice as well. Be the best version of yourself that you can be, and self-confidence will follow.

Be Open and Honest

Unfortunately, most people are not very open. We have the things we like to do, eat, and see, and really aren’t interested in anything else. If you aren’t willing to put yourself out there and try new things, you will find it more difficult to meet new people. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to go out to a huge party or join a rock-climbing club, but even simply signing up for online dating or going to an event can be a step in the right direction.

In addition to being open, it is important to always be honest. The last thing you want to do is lead anyone on or let them get the wrong idea. So while it is good to be open and try new things, always be honest about your feelings, your wants, and your boundaries.

We hope that this blog post will help you learn some helpful tips to navigate the world of dating in 2019 and beyond.

How to Plan a Successful Vacation with Your Other Half

Travel cannot only allow you to soak up different cultures and experience new sights and sounds, but it can potentially bring you and your spouse closer together. However, the destination you pick, the itinerary you create and the activities you choose can determine whether a break is a success or failure.

To ensure you both look back on a trip with much fondness, read the below advice on how to plan a successful vacation with your other half.

Choose a Destination to Suit You Both

While you might have your heart set on a destination, you should never push your idea onto your other half, or you could completely ruin their travel experience. Instead, you must choose a location that suits both your needs, which will ensure have an unforgettable time together.

Select the Right Mode of Transportation

Once you have chosen a destination together, you will next need to select the right mode of transport for you both. For example, if you are enjoying a vacation at home, you could jump into your car and enjoy a fun road trip.

If, however, you are traveling overseas or to the opposite end of the country, browse the market for the best flight times for your needs. However, if you are heading to Texas, you could add a little romance and luxury into your journey with a private jets Dallas flight.

Take Advantage of Travel Perks

Are you and your other half celebrating a milestone anniversary or honeymoon? Inform hotel staff once you arrive at your accommodation. As a result, you might receive:

• a complimentary room upgrade

• a bottle of champagne

• a free meal at the hotel’s restaurant

Enjoy Some Alone Time

Conflict can easily arise when you spend every waking minute together. Rather than allowing tension to bubble, it is beneficial to enjoy a little time apart on vacation.

For example, take a walk to the store alone, enjoy a dip in the pool while your partner reads a book, or go for a siesta to recharge your batteries. The short break away will also provide some time to miss your other half, so you will feel happier when you come back together.

Prioritize Activities

It is likely you and your partner will have a list of activities you want to experience at a destination. To ensure you each get to tick an attraction off your bucket list, you must both state the places or things you would like to see/do during a getaway. You must then prioritize attractions to maximize your time and prevent conflict.

Conclusion

A vacation will provide you and your partner with an opportunity to strengthen your connection, which can help your relationship to stand the test of time.

However, to enjoy a getaway together, you must choose your transportation wisely, take a short break from each other from time to time, and be willing to compromise. If you follow the above top tips, it is likely you will enjoy a romantic, hassle-free vacation from start to finish.

Could Your Partner Be Cheating On You?

If you are worried that your partner may be cheating on you, you are not alone. There are many other people who harbor concerns about what their partners may be up to. Sometimes, these feelings are nothing more than paranoia, whereas in other cases they turn out to be right. So, how can you find out whether your partner may be cheating?

Well, asking your partner outright could be a mistake. First, they may deny it and leave you back at square one. Second, if they are not cheating on you, it could destroy any trust in the relationship. So, before you start making any accusations, it is worth looking at signs that may indicate they are cheating. We will look at some of the main signs in this article.

What Are the Main Signs?

There are various different signs that may indicate your partner is cheating, so it is well worth familiarizing yourself with them. One sign to look out for is an increase in calls being received by your partner, and how they act when these calls come in. If you have noticed they are getting a lot more calls than usual and they act cagey when these calls come in, there may be a cause to worry. You can go online and find tools that enable you to carry out all sorts of searches these days from criminal records check and background checks to reverse phone number checks. You can use the latter to find out who has been calling.

Another thing to look at is whether your partner’s behavior has changed noticeably and suddenly. This could include a variety of changes. For instance, you may find that your partner goes out far more than before. You may have noticed a difference or improvement in their appearance. You may even have found that they don’t appear to want closeness and intimacy any longer. Plus, there is the old classic – working late at the office on a regular basis. It is well worth checking for any changes in behaviors and habits to get a better idea of what may be going on.

Social media is another factor you have to look at if you are concerned your partner may be cheating. Often, people will turn to private messaging on their social media accounts to get in touch with the person they are cheating with. Of course, you probably won’t be able to see the messages. However, you can see if your partner has started using social media more and if they act suspiciously, such as keeping their device out of your line of sight while on social media sites.

Better to Know the Truth

Of course, nobody wants to find out that their partner has been cheating. However, it is better to know the truth and move forward than it is to be stuck wondering what is going on. This is why you should look out for signs that your partner may be cheating if you have any suspicions. Once you know the truth, then you can then decide on the next step you want to take.

Relationship Advice from NASA Engineer

Conservatives stay single longer

A new study from NASA engineer Rashied Amini, Ph.D. analyzes factors that contribute to how long people stay single. Some surprising results include conservative political views, higher education and not so surprising factors like income as a deal-breaker. The results of the study were used to create Nanaya’s love prediction algorithm, which is available for free and premium memberships online, and for iOS and Android.“Somehow this is the first time someone’s seriously looked at this question. The answers we found aren’t just about how long people stay single but also why,” said founder and owner of Nanaya,Rashied Amini, Ph.D.,on why he decided to conduct this study and start Nanaya.

Levelof education and rebound time have an almost perfectly correlated relationship. With someone staying single 0.8 months longer for each additional year of secondary & post-secondary education obtained. In addition, people who work in Academia & Higher Education have longer rebound times compared to other industries, with those working in agriculture having the shortest rebound time.

People who take public transit frequently will on average find relationships four months faster than people who never or rarely take public transit.

The size of your company could impact your love life. The study showed that people in workplaces of ~30-70 people have the best odds of entering a relationship sooner compared to smaller companies or large corporations.

Those with unempathetic political views tend to spend significantly longer looking for a relationship. Some of the opinions that have the most impact include being against marriage equality and universal healthcare, supporting increased border security, and being opposed to expanding welfare.

Feminists have an easier time finding relationships by approximately 1-2 months. This includes men who support feminism.

Compared to straight men and women, gay and bisexual people find relationships faster. Gay men spend the least amount of time single, followed by bisexual men and women.

Since non-Americans find love approximately 8 months sooner than Americans, traveling internationally can increase your chances of making a lasting connection.

Level of education and rebound time have an almost perfectly correlated relationship. With someone staying single 0.8 months longer for each additional year of secondary & post-secondary education obtained. In addition, people who work in Academia & Higher Education have a longer rebound time compared to other industries, with those working in Agriculture having the shortest rebound time.

According to Nanaya’s data, psychology and belief systems have a stronger correlation to time spent single. When it comes to children, those who want children spend the shortest time single, followed by those who don’t know if they want children. Single parents or those who don’t want children spend the longest time single.
