The hindrances

However, all said and done, the concept of network marketing is not without its blues. The concept is time and again plagued by some inherent problems which are too serious to ignore. There is a high propensity of certain companies to take to exploitation, wherein the promoters enjoying a higher level in the networking suddenly shut down, leaving the lower level executives financially incarcerated. There have been allegations that certain companies carry out fraudulent business with the help of this concept that would have otherwise been impossible. The larger networking marketing companies survive all these odds by hiring high paid attorneys and warding the legal prosecutors off. However, the smaller ones take a nosedive and die a premature death. Hence, to grow with the help of network marketing, which is nevertheless a wonderful and innovative concept a business house needs to take some serious evasive actions.  

Ways to overcome the hurdles

If you are scared because of this rather exasperating scenario, let me assure you that this is only one side of the coin. One the other side there lays the unambiguous theory of network marketing that is based upon the holistic and parallel growth of a business along with its associates. All that is needed to further ascertain the concept in the business fraternity are some simple yet highly innovative steps that will apart from establishing the concept, safeguard it from potential dangers.

1.      Blogging site or platform

This is one of the innovative yet simple ways of making your network marketing concept look for transparent, authoritative. Yes, this may involve a bit of expenses but the amount will be negligible in respect of the return that you will get. You create your own blog and design that would suit your business, pay some hosting fees and domain costs every month and express the mission and vision of your business in your way to substantiate your business the network marketing concept on which your business is based amongst your down line associates. 

2.      Search Engine Optimization

 Again, this is another way of explaining your motives and establishing your network marketing business concepts. Hire a well-reputed SEO company and offer them the responsibility of ensuring that your business web page enjoys a healthy ranking on the internet constantly. This understandably not only makes your business popular, giving an immense shot in the arm of your network-marketing concept but also popularizing your business intention amongst your potential customers & down line associates. This provides a fair amount of transparency in your network-marketing concept.

3.      Back linking

Conceptualizing a proper back linking strategy will also help you your business site to enjoy higher ranking properly and timely. Again, you need to have a safeguard here. You will find a number of companies, which will promise you great rankings. A majority of these companies ultimately turn out to be frauds or fail to deliver what they promise. Do not take these companies at their face value. Do a lot of research and consultation with the experts before zeroing on a particular company. Remember, the company you eye on hold the key to publicize not only your business but your network marketing concept to your customers as well as the down line associates who form the part of the network.

4.      Generate networking leads with your personal website

Another factor that determines the growth of your network marketing down line is how well you can sell yourself. You will have to be ruthless in marketing and selling your own self to lure others in joining your network marketing hierarchy. You need to market your uniqueness to them and bring them under the umbrella of your networking system.

5.      Use auto responder for acknowledging your networking leads

Make suitable arrangements so that whenever a lead logs on to your website the person will get reports on newsletters for free. This will help the subscriber list of your service to grow in size.

6.      Create articles for generating network marketing leads

Keep on writing articles regularly to inform your down line associates about the details of your business and about the crux of your network-marketing concept. This will add to the transparency and lure more down line associates into your business.

The fall out

Even if you have taken the most comprehensive step to attract, new down line and prosper your multilevel marketing concept, do not expect results overnight. No matter how hard you try, this is ostensibly a slow and gradual process that takes time to show off its full gamut. However, if you are steady and stick to your task, the results will eventually show off. However, for speeding up the process you can pick a few avenues from here and there, which can generate new leads and master them. This will help you to open up further avenues of growth and publicity that will yield fruitful results eventually.

As these avenues are relatively newer, they are virgin and have not left your network marketing or have become disenchanted with the business. On the contrary, a number of these avenues or leads will be rearing to create further opportunities of network marketing in order to develop their personal business, lifestyle and obviously income. This will understandably give a tremendous impetus, if you may say so, to your business ushering further newer ways of development and growth in the short as well as long term. 

Significance of Sleep in Teenagers

We need sleep to rest our brain. When we sleep our brain goes into a reduced or absent state of consciousness backed by moderately paused sensory activities and idleness of almost all the voluntary muscles of our body. However, our body & our brain keep on functioning actively and normally though with a somewhat reduced ability to react to various stimuli. However, the purpose and the mechanism of sleep are yet to be fully and accurately ascertained by the analysts. However, they have managed to come to the conclusion that in different ages, sleep can have different causes and effects on human life.

Majority of people suffer from sleep deprivation at one point in time of their lives. Occurrence of sleep deprivation once or twice during the entire life span is perfectly alright and there is hardly any reason to worry about that. However, if it happens during the early childhood days, especially during the teens, then that is something to be taken care of at the earliest. This is the time when a human body and mind undergo a series of changes to take a permanent shape and form. Therefore, any aberration at this juncture can make a lot of difference so far as physical and mental structure of the individual is concerned.

Sleeping During Teens: Various Aspects

Technically speaking, teens are perhaps the most vital stages of human life. It is during this stage, when the mind and the body of an individual undergo the maximum extent of change. This is the time when an individual moves over to adolescence from puberty. As a result of this, teens are more prone and responsive to stress and strain than anyone else.

Prolonged study has revealed that various factors including stress and strain tend to have certain effect on the sleeping pattern in the teens. In some, it results in excessive sleeping by disturbing the body clock. This causes these individuals to stay up till late in the night and it becomes virtually impossible to awake them till late in the morning. Again, in some others an altogether different sleeping pattern can be noticed when the individual has hardly any sleep. As per the analysts, it’s the direct effect of the mental changes that take place during the time and the effect of the environment on that changing mindset. This happens when a teen tries a bit too hard to come in terms of the competitiveness in the daily life and its stress & strain. Hence it can be said that sleeping pattern is the physical manifestation of the mental and physical metamorphosis that a teen undergoes.

As per the statistics, much of excessive sleepiness among teens can be attributed to their frustration of not living up to the expectations of their parents. Some other factors like part-time or odd jobs, early-morning schools, excessive pressure of homework, too much extracurricular activities, pressure of meeting the social demands, excessive use of different electronic gadgets including computers are also responsible for sleeplessness during teens. Furthermore, a study conducted by Journal of School Health has also revealed that over 90 percent of modern teens sleep much less than 9 hours per day – the amount of sleep recommended by the physicians. The study also showed that 10 percent of teens sleep less than even six hours per night.

The results have come to the conclusion that nearly 46% of the adolescent subjects put under the survey, scored between 10 and 15 on depression scale, 37% of them scored between 15 and 19, while 17% scored between 20 and 30.

Effects of sleeplessness on teen age body

The activities that we perform round the clock are strictly influenced and in some cases, governed by an internal biological clock. This clock influences the temperature of our body, our sleep cycle, out appetite and various hormonal changes and secretion. The biological & psychological processes of our body that are strictly governed by this 24-hour clock are known as Circadian Rhythms. In case of children who are yet to attain adolescence, the Circadian Rhythm tells the body to fall asleep by 8 or 9 in the night. However, during puberty it directs them to stay awake till 11 or beyond. Hence staying further awake disturbs the body clock and this directly influences the biological and psychological activities of the body.

It is seen that the teens in general, have a propensity of sleeping too little to maintain maximum alertness during the day and make most of the day to complete various activities. Though they require a minimum of nine hours of sleep, that requirement is hardly met, chiefly to meet the demands that the modern students’ life asks for.

Too little sleep during teen age:

  • Restricts the ability of learning and listening, affects concentration and the ability of troubleshooting. It increases forgetfulness to such an extent that the individual in question forgets information like names and numbers, appointments and dates, home work and other things.
  • Results in metabolic disorder that in turns makes the individual susceptible to pimples and other types of skin ailments like acne. 
  • Can give rise to aggressive and inappropriate behavior, temper tantrums while interacting with teachers, family members and friends, for little or no reason along with marked reduction of patience and endurance
  • Can at times result in improper appetite and craving for fast foods during odd hours – a phenomenon that directly affects the metabolic system of the individual in the long run 
  • Will aggravate the effects of substance abuse including alcohol besides heightening the propensity of using caffeine & nicotine
  • Besides these direct effects, too little sleep can also result in the individuals falling asleep in wrong places and at wrong times, especially behind the wheel while driving, causing fatal accidents. 

Other superficial effects of sleeplessness amongst children include symptoms of Irritability & moodiness, signs of hyperactivity, signs of persistence tiredness even after getting up in the morning, fussiness over trivial issues and a nagging attitude & crying, deterioration of performance in school and tuition, clumsiness, poor controlling ability over impulse, short naps during daytime and a reluctance in getting up in morning.

Sleep Deprivation: The Principle Causes

When we tend to discuss the principle causes behind loss of sleep in children during their teens there are a number of factors that can be held accountable. Some of them pose direct effect while others may be indirect, though important reasons behind sleep deprivation.

The principle causes of sleep deprivation amongst children, especially those in their teens are anxiety, strain and stress, hindered or defective physical development, depression and dejection, obesity, lowered immune system, diabetes and so on. Sleep deprivation in children produces an overall impact on their health and leads to serious health conditions.

Let us look into various causes of sleep deprivation in children in details:

  • Intake of excessive caffeine all throughout the day, particularly during night and at the time of going to the bed may result in sleep deprivation
  • If there are too many stimulants in the bedroom like television or music system, computer and other electronic gadgets, it can cause sleep deprivation in teens. This may include getting into the bed with mobile phone as well. 
  • If the child in question has a propensity of waking up too many times during night this can cause loss of sleep.
  • Again, if the child is suffering from any anxiety and stress from prolonged period of time, this can cause some problem for the child when it comes to falling asleep. 
  • Certain issue like periodic movement of limbs, snoring & sleep apnea can also cause hindrance to sleep.
  • Intake of certain medicines for treating certain medical conditions can also result in sleep deprivation.
  • In certain cases, children who have a tendency of playing till late in the evening at times may develop sleep deprivation. Too much physical exercise and hyper-activities can result in secretion of excessive adrenaline, which keeps the muscles tensed and this prevents sleeping.

Dealing with Sleep Deprivation during Teens and Looking For Some Remedy: Some Tips for the Parents and Teachers:

Children suffering from sleep deprivation can cause series of problems at homes or in schools and can turn out to be major headaches for parents at home and teachers in schools. However, dealing with these children asks for a special technique. Children suffering from sleep deprivation shows inattentiveness, suffers from lack of concentration and may fall asleep in the class (while in school) or at odd hours of the day while in home. Scolding them or treating them harshly is not a very wise thing to do as they do not do all these intentionally but due to some shortfall in their physical and mental system. Let us discuss some ways in which to deal with children who are suffering from sleep deprivation during their teens.

  • Ensure that your teen is sleeping for a minimum of eight and a half to nine and a half hours every night. A little less than this for a night or two due to an early morning tuition or class will not make any vast difference. However, see that this does not become habit. Sticking to this routine for a prolonged period of time will help your teen to overcome the habit of not sleeping.
  • Allow your child to sleep till late in the morning if he has stayed up late the previous night. During the weekends and in other holidays, do not wake him up if he is sleeping till late in the morning. Allow him to sleep as much as he can as this will help him make up the lost sleep during the week.
  • Keep a strict vigil to ensure that he spends minimum number of sleepless nights or nights when he has minimum sleep. If the extracurricular activities of his school are taking toll on his sleep, do not hesitate to have a talk to the principle or the concerned teacher.
  • For the teachers, if any student is falling asleep during classes, instead of being harsh on him talk to his parents and draw their attention. Again, if the children tend to fall asleep after working out drills and other extracurricular activities, it is better to talk to the principal and the concerned teacher to see what can be done. Needless to say, the parents should be talked to as well regarding the issue.
  • For the parents, see if your teen is taking too much of coffee. Put a restriction in the intake of coffee & sugar and make sure he takes it only during evenings. Most teens have a propensity of drinking too much beverages and this can cause sleeplessness.
  • It is important to observe the sleeping pattern of your teen very carefully. If he has the habit of snoring, help him out. A wide variety of products are available in the markets that help to stop snoring. Get him one but only after consulting your house physician. If it does not help, consult the doctor for some tips and ask for help if needed.
  • Set a routine for your teen and tell him to abide by it as strictly as possible. Maintain a day to day record of the amount of sleep your child gets every night. If you find that your child is sleeping less than what is needed, set fresh guidelines and make sure he gets more time to sleep. Be strict to send him to bed early in the night and see he actually sleeps. Remove all the sleep deterrents like computer, lap top, music system, and other electronic gadgets from his bedroom. If needed, do not allow him to go to bed with his mobile.
  • Change the color of the walls of his room. Put up darker curtains and make sure the night lamp is soothing enough that should encourage sleep.
  • If needed you can start counseling your teen. Talk to him and try to make out what really is keeping him awake.
  • Make out if he is suffering from sleep disorder. If so, he needs immediate medical attention. The symptoms of a simple sleeping problem and a sleep disorder are somewhat identical at the beginning. If you are not sure, you can get him to your house physician to be on safer side. Sleep disorder, if not diagnosed and treated can give rise to serious consequences later on.
  • Do not allow him to get over tired and then drive.
  • Last but not be least, do not self-diagnose. If you are not confident about the situation, do not think twice before getting to a doctor.

Before concluding, it should be mentioned that in certain cases parents are responsible for the sleep deprivation in their teens. Either they are too much ignorant about the habits their teens are developing or they are encouraging in certain activities like watching television till late in the night, letting the children watching movies of too much violence and horror or letting them chat to friends over phone for too long. These habits, if allowed to carry on for too long will definitely give rise to sleeplessness subsequently. Old habits die hard and so it’s better to follow the old saying, “Prevention is better than cure”. Refrain from helping your teen from developing these habits. As he grows up, be a bit stringent so that he thinks twice before doing something that may be harmful to his body clock and his sleeping pattern. Bring up your child rather smartly instead of repenting later on.

Give Your Back a Rest – 5 Easy Ways to Get Relief

When I started my own home based business way back in 2009, I was highly excited. This was a new venture for me; almost a new chapter of my life and I wished to give my 100% to make it successful. Initially I was very enthusiastic and naturally gave lots of effort to my business. Though initially I assumed that I wouldn’t have to work much hard like those who travel to office regularly, I was soon proved wrong. Within months, I realized that my job was no less hectic my office-going counterparts.

In fact, I had to sit at a stretch for 8 to 10 hours on my chair to do regular business related tasks, handle my clients and to coordinate with my freelancers as well. These long hours took a toll on my back and soon I began suffering from terrible pain throughout my spine. Mornings became a nightmare when I woke up with stiffness and inflammation as well in my back. There was no other way but to visit Dr. Liboy Bonny, my family physician. He diagnosed that the pain was caused by over work and sitting for long hours at a stretch in the same position.Image Courtesy "Getty Images"

Buddies, beware! Though I have recovered a lot after following his suggestions and medication, those of you who have sedentary working habits like me, should take care as well. My doctor in fact gave me some effective tips to give my back a rest and keep the pain at bay. I would like to share them with you all. After all you cannot enjoy your job (no matter wherefrom you are doing it) with a pain in your back.

How to Save Your Back from Pain?

  • Whenever you are sitting, make sure that you have enough support for your lower back. When I started working from home, I neglected making for proper seating arrangement. I used my old regular chair for my job. However, you should always choose the right type of chair when you need to sit for a long time. Whether you are at an office or working from home; right sized chair is a must in order to avoid any kind of back pain.
  • Try to avoid leaning towards one particular side when sitting on a chair. Also try to avoid overstuffed furniture that cannot provide enough support to your spine which is very essential for a painless back.
  • While working on computer, make sure that you place the PC adjusting to your eye level. Otherwise you will feel a tremendous back pain after a while.
  • Never ever sit for as long as half an hour without taking any break. You may have plenty of work, deadlines, client’s calls and many more important matters to take care of, but remember nothing is more important than your health. During the initial days of my home-based business, I was so excited about my career that I ignored my health a lot. And I had to pay for that and was forced to take a break of 3 months to get recovery from my back pain. So I would like to request you all not to repeat my mistake.
  • Try to do some exercise daily. It will help you to obtain a good physique and you can get rid of several kinds of pains and aches as well. Some ailments can be cured only through exercise and yoga, such as spondylosis and other bone-related disorders. So regular exercise will help you to keep away nominal back pains.

Hence, these are some process through which you can keep your back safe during your work. These processes are useful for both the office-goers and those who work from home. Those, who need to sit for long hours on chairs, can follow these tips in order to obtain a painless experience while working.

Bollywood Movies- My Daily Diet

Today I woke up a little late in the morning and missed my office bus. Believe me friends, it was not my fault! It was all the temptation of Bollywood and its maddening impact on the movie buff in me. Normally I spend half an hour watching TV after meal every night.   However, last night while surfing from one channel to another, I came across “Sholey” – the great blockbuster being telecast on one of the channels. It was already 11 pm and I knew that I have an urgent appointment this morning; but how could I miss the movie and go to sleep? It was Bollywood calling and how could I ignore it? I am a devout movie buff and Bollywood movies are a special part of my daily diet. I am a fan of Bollywood movies and Sholey, being one of my all-time favorites did the magic yesterday. There was no question of switching off the TV when Jay and Veeru were fighting against Gabbar.

I love action movies most, though I never say no to any kind of Bollywood movies. I have grown up watching them since my childhood. My mom says that when I was a child, I used to stop crying whenever Jitendra, danced! Even now I stay riveted to my seat watching the car chasing sequence of the film Don. I have watched Dhoom 18 times and you can any day treat me to the movie again just to witness the tussle between John (John Abraham- and Abhishek (Abhishek Bachhan-.

I believe that this is not only my story, rather a sample of the Bollywood hypnotism that runs in most Indian veins. We eat, sleep and drink Bollywood movies and live our life with it. The heroes and heroines of those movies become our idol, our inspiration, our first love and our chronic weakness. No matter where you live, whether in the hills of Western ghats in the south, the desert of Rajasthan in the north or in the mangroves of Sunderbans in the east, Bollywood continues to cast its spell on all. Consciously or in our fantasies, we follow their style, their attitude, their dresses as well as their gestures. Actually we want to be like them, we want our lives to be a ‘happily forever’ Bollywood movie. Bollywood movies in turn capture our love, anger, hopes, frustration, envy and lots of other emotions and dish out slices of growing and changing India.

However, not only in India, but also far in the East and across the Atlantic, Bollywood has made its entry. Bollywood is considered as world’s one of the largest film industries with a huge numbers of artists, technicians and workers. My cousin Sonali lives in New Jersey, she called me last month and told how she went to the premier of Ravan with her American boyfriend. She told me that Jim, her boyfriend was so excited by seeing Kareena Kapoor’s dance in the movie.

For some people these movies are nothing but full of fake promises and some unreal stories, but for me and for millions others these are the dreams that we see every day, this is the life that we want to live. We don’t care whether the hero is doing something unrealistic, or exaggerated, the only thing we look for is entertainment in every Bollywood movie. Be it action movie, a comedy, a romantic potboiler or movies on social issues; if it is from the “B-Town”, entertainment is guaranteed.

History of various Mixed Martial Arts forms

At present, Mixed Marital Arts or MMA as the sport is popularly called is one of the most widely followed sporting activities and its popularity seems to increase with every passing day all over the world. This particular sport is not for the weak hearted – that’s for sure. On the contrary, it is one of the most brutal, bloody and probably the most dangerous sport that can cause serious harm or even death to players taking part. In spite of that, people all around the world take real pleasure in these MMA fights and enjoy the various fighting styles of the players who participate. The popularity of this sport that we see today was not built overnight. This particular sport has been popular during the ancient times and even the ancient Olympic Games, which were played in Athens, Greece, featured Mixed Marital Arts.

Since then, the versatility of the game that encompasses various types of innovative fighting styles have ensured that the game acquires a special stature of a great combat sport that combines various fighting techniques of Muay Thai, Wrestling, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Judo and creates a unique style of its own. The combination of striking &grapplingstyles of fighting in MMA are far more exhilaratingin comparison to the other forms of combat sports that are mainly one-dimensional.

Unlike many other sports, Mixed Martial Arts has a very long history under its belt. As mentioned earlier, this game has its roots in ancient Greece where it was called Pankration. This particular combat sport was for the first time introduced during the ancient Olympic Games in the year 648BC. Since then, the sport went through a series of evolution and transformation in its style and form and finally in the 1800s, Europe saw a number of MMA fighting competitions being held.

These competitions which were held well in the 1900s saw a number of boxers pitted against Jujutsu experts. These fights were called ‘Merika’ and gained immense popularity all over Europe during those days. Then, during the 1920s Vale Tudo tournaments were for the first time introduced in Brazil by the notorious Gracie family and it is this tournament, which is considered to be the origin of the modern day MMA played all over the world. Then subsequently, the sport was further popularized by the legendary Bruce Lee who introduced a unique style of fighting that combined various other martial arts like Judo, Jiu Jitsu and Karate along with other western fighting styles like Boxing. He further popularized his style of fighting with his movies that enthralled everyone all over the world.

Ultimately, Mixed Marital Arts gained the present popularity, with the introduction of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in the year 1993. As the popularity of the UFC went on increasing, it gave rise to a string of controversies in politics as well as in the media because of the violence of bloodshed associated. Eventually, the tournament turned out to be a customary sporting event with a string of safety rules that ensured a non-brutal and a more fan-friendly tournament of Mixed Martial Arts and this gave further fillip to the already increasing popularity of the sport.
