  4. Former racer and the CEO of the Spa-Francorchamps F1 circuit, Nathalie Maillet was found dead along with the bodies of her husband and another woman at her residence in Gouvy, Belgium. According to multiple media reports, the “lifeless” bodies of the two women and a man was discovered with gunshot wounds. "The male would have deliberately used his weapon against the two women, among whom was his wife, resulting in their death before killing himself," the statement said. © Autosport The track's chairman, Melchior Wathelet, said: "My thoughts are with Nathalie's family, her parents, relatives and teams. Today we are losing a very great lady, a motorsports lover and enthusiast, a true leader who will be sorely missed. Nathalie had become the face of the circuit, she embodied this passion for racing that we all share." United Kingdom publication Mirror reported that the F1 Boss’ husband Franz Dubois found her with another lady Ann Lawrence Durviaux in the bedroom of their home and shot them both with his gun before taking his own life in a double-murder-suicide case. The thoughts of everybody at Aston Martin Cognizant F1 Team are with the grieving family and friends of Nathalie Maillet. Nathalie was CEO at Circuit de Spa Francorchamps and a highly respected figure in the sport. Her loss will be felt by the entire motorsport community. https://t.co/GokEfSaY0Y — Aston Martin Cognizant F1 Team (@AstonMartinF1) August 15, 2021 "At 00:10, the bodies of two women and one man were discovered by the police in a house in Gouvy, all three presenting gunshot wounds. According to our information, the male individual voluntarily used his firearm to kill both women, including his wife, before killing himself," the report read. Maillet became a part of the F1 world rather late as she got herself registered with the racing school at 33 years of age after studying architecture from the University of London. Winning her first Fun Cup in 2006, she rose through the ranks until being appointed as the chief executive of the track in 2016. We are deeply saddened by the awful news that our friend Nathalie Maillet has died. The whole of Formula 1 sends its deepest condolences to her family and friends. The motorsport community has lost an incredible person and we will all miss her greatly. — F1 Media (@F1Media) August 15, 2021 “We are deeply saddened by the awful news that our friend Nathalie Maillet has died.

  5. While Bollywood has given us numerous artists par excellence, there are some names that are, and will remain forever, simply exceptional. Smita Patil's name, without a shred of doubt, will feature on top of that list. No other actress will ever touch the powerhouse performances that she has delivered, all before the age of 31, before her tragic demise. View this post on Instagram While her brief filmography is one that is virtually 'untouchable' in terms of what she has achieved, she remains till date one of those icons who are special and therefore venerated, because of just being themselves. She was unique as an artist, and perhaps the biggest reason for that was her fearless individuality, that provided her the transparent yet fierce lens with which she viewed the society, and in extension, the industry and her roles. View this post on InstagramThe fact that she was one of the rare mainstream artists who dared to speak up on 'taboo' topics like the 'formula portrayal of women' back at a time when no one else dared to, is a testament to her fearlessness as an artist. Check out this video that has resurfaced. Early 80s. When almost no one from the film world was calling out (on the record) the stereotypical, uni-dimensional, sexist portrayal of women in popular Hindi cinema — Smita Patil did just that. pic.twitter.com/UeStM2R84J — Love of Cinema (@loveofcinemasf8) July 19, 2021 In this rare video from the Doordarshan Archives, she speaks on how problematic the portrayal of women has been in the industry - right from them being portrayed either as 'pativrata, sati, always suffering or bewkoof' or outright just a 'vamp' without any layers to those roles. She also highlights the shallow portrayal of prostitution in the industry as a mere excuse of skin show, rather than focusing on the heartbreak and pain associated with it. The way she fearlessly brings it up, being absolutely eloquent while at it, has been garnering praise from her fans, even after all these years.

  7. For fans who have been waiting, the much-awaited trailer for Salman Khan-starrer Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is finally here. Directed by Prabhu Deva, the film also features Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff, and Megha Akash in pivotal roles. After seeing the trailer, we felt that we are seeing nothing new that we haven’t seen in Salman Khan’s old movie. It feels like that the writers didn’t have the script and chose to stick to the old template of Wanted, Dabangg, and Kick. View this post on Instagram The crime rate has increased in Mumbai and for this, the police felt that it’s best to have police officer Radhe (Salman Khan) onboard. He is an encounter specialist in the film who has 97 hits already under his belt. In the trailer, you also get a glimpse of Randeep Hooda who’s the villain and there’s also a fight sequence between him and Salman. For the movie, Salman has ended his no-kiss policy and would be seen giving a lip kiss to his ladylove played by Disha Patani. We also met Jackie Shroff who plays the role of Disha’s brother in the movie. The 2-minute 51-seconds trailer is a tad bit disappointing as it is offering nothing exciting on the table. Towards the end of the trailer, Salman can be heard saying “Radhe jaane k liye nahin bhejne k liye aaya hain aur tere hisse ki biryani hum sab me baat kar khayege aur bolenge Eid Mubarak." Even the dialogues lacked the spark and felt very repetitive. We also felt bad for Randeep as he deserves better roles than this. Here’s the trailer: Not just us, people echoed the same thoughts. They also found the trailer disappointing as it was nothing but a combination of all the movies he has done so far. It didn’t get approval from his own fans as they also think it’s his worst work till now. #RadheTrailer chutiyaap ki toh hadd hi hogayi... 🤦🏻‍♀️ — AshScribbles!

You can do far far better than this.#RadheTrailer is the worst seen trailer for such a big star. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ https://t.co/YpQtuT3LF5 — Kaustuv Dwivedi (@dwivedikaustuv) April 22, 2021We wonder if the movie would be as disappointing as the trailer. The movie will have a multi-platform release this Eid (May 13). Along with a theatrical release, as promised by the actor, the film will also be out on the pay-per-view service ZeePlex as well as DTH operators -- Dish, D2H, Tata Sky, and Airtel Digital TV. The trailer will be out on Thursday (April 22). A spokesperson for Salman Khan Films said, “It’s imperative that we all come together and think of out-of-the-box solutions for cinema as an industry during the current pandemic situation.” “We will support the theatre owners by releasing the film in as many theatres as we can, keeping in line with the rules and protocols laid down by the government. But, considering the guidelines and safety measures, we also need to devise ways to ensure that the film reaches all of our audience. We don't want to deny the audience the choice of entertainment in the comfort of their homes during these times,” the spokesperson added. Planning to watch the movie?

  8. Ever since its first world championship race in 1950, Formula One (F1) has come a long way to become the biggest and highest class of open-wheeled, single-seater auto racing sanctioned by Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), motorsport's world governing body. But, to label it as a mere sport, will be an understatement. F1 is not just a sport, but a high-stakes theatre where men gamble with their lives every time they take out their mean machines in the labyrinth, labelled as a race track. Just like the gladiators, who were either expected to be killed or incur a fatal injury, the F1 drivers are gambling away their lives, unaware of their fate, every time they enter their fast cars. © Reuters It's not the fast cars going in circles on the circuit at lightening speed that gets us out of our seats, it's the closeness of the F1 drivers to death that truly makes them and spectators feel more alive. And, the fact that 25 fatalities have been recorded in the history of F1 so far further makes it quite evident. It all began on 31st July 1954 when Onofre Marimon ran into a ditch and collided with a tree at the old Nurburgring in Germany during the practice session for the German Grand Prix. The Argentinian became the first fatality in the F1 history which was only going to increase in the coming years. As the world celebrates these racing gladiators every season, let's mourn the unfortunate ones who lost their lives. Tom Pryce There has been just one Welsh driver in the history of F1 racing and his death resulted in some of the most gruesome footage ever committed to film. During the 1977 South African Grand Prix at Kyalami, Pryce and 19-year-old race marshall Jansen Van Vuuren both lost their lives. Renzo Zorzi, whose car had stopped off track, was being tended to by Van Vuuren and another race marshall at the Crowthorne Corner. The duo were carrying fire-extinguishers to prevent the car from catching fire when Pryce, who didn't see the marshalls because of Hans Joachim-Stuck driving right in front of him, ran down Van Vuuren. Pryce was also killed instantly by the fire-extinguisher carried by Van Vuuren, which struck his head. His helmet strap also dug into his neck due to the impact and nearly decapitated Pryce. The remains of Van Vuuren were flung several meters away due to the impact. Van Vuuren was so badly mutilated by the accident that he was only identified after the race through process of elimination. Ronnie Peterson Ronnie Peterson, also known as the "Super Swede", was the championship runner-up twice during his career. In the 1978 Italian Grand Prix, the race started before all the cars were in their respective starting grids and as a result there was a massive crash which stopped the race for ten drivers. Peterson couldn't escape his car but he was rescued from the burning wreckage by fellow racers James Hunt, Clay Regazzoni and Patrick Depailler. What makes this accident most unfortunate is that Peterson didn't die at the crash site but instead in the hospital over-night. Peterson suffered several fractures but remained conscious which led his doctors to believe nothing was wrong. However, his untreated bones bled bone-marrow into his blood-stream and caused a fat-embolism which eventually killed him - thus undoing the good of Hunt, Regazzoni and Depailler's heroic act. If not for his untimely demise, Peterson had every chance in the world to clinch the championship that year. Gilles Villeneuve French-Canadian Gilles Villeneuve was one of the most well-known F1 drivers to have never won a world championship. Villeneuve lost his life after a horrific and harrowing accident in qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder in 1982. With around 10 minutes of the final qualifying session remaining, Villeneuve caught the back of another car travelling around 140 mph, and was launched into the air. His Ferrari was airborne for more than 100 metres before crashing into the ground and somersaulting along the track. Villeneuve's helmet was torn from his head by the crash as he was thrown a further 50 metres from his destroyed car into the fencing around the edge of the circuit. He died of a fatal neck fracture and was pronounced dead in the hospital that evening. Ayrton Senna Although many years after Formula One's deadliest period in the 1970s, Brazilian Ayrton Senna's death marked the unthinkable. The sport's greatest driver at the time - and in many people's eyes, the greatest to have lived - died on television in front of millions of people, in an era when fans did not expect drivers to die in the name of sport. The Brazilian tragically lost his life during the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola after crashing his Williams car into a concrete wall at 145 mph. A piece of the suspension assembly penetrated his helmet visor, and he died of fatal skull fractures. Senna's death was the second to have taken place in two days, as Austrian Roland Ratzenberger too had lost his life, after suffering a similar crash during race qualifying. During the team meeting before the race, Senna had raised concerns about the race going forward. It was later revealed that a furled Austrian flag was found in his car that he had intended to raise in honour of Ratzenberger after the race. Jules Bianchi From 1954 and 1994, a total of 24 deaths were recorded alongside numerous other life-changing injuries in the history of F1. And, on 17th July 2015, Jules Bianchi, unfortunately became F1's 25th fatality. The 25-year-old Marussia driver succumbed to the brain injuries sustained in a crash during the Japanese Grand Prix in October 2014. He was in a coma since the accident, in which he collided at high speed with a mobile crane which was being used to pick up another crashed car. Even though the French driver is the first driver to be killed from injuries sustained during a F1 Grand Prix since Ayrton Senna, 21 years ago, it still highlights a major issue. The fact that the existing safety measures and regulations in professional motorsport can never subdue the risks involved in the sport is still a matter of concern. View the full article
  9. Harry Styles's opens up about his Androgynous Style Formula. Photo: InstagramAfter a stylistic entry to the December Jingle Bell Ball in a glittery denim jumpsuit, Harry Styles set the tone for his fashion formula and effectively cemented his status as a fashion icon this year. Styles is well known for defying and breaking stereotypes related to acceptable gender norms. During an interview with The Guardian, Harry made his views on androgyny clear as day.“What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that,” he said. “If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies.’ I think: ‘Okaaaay? Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though… I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier.” His feelings and sentiments compliment his recent album release, from donning a custom made Gucci for his photo cover for Fine Line, to a periwinkle suit from Harris Reed for his lead single Lights Up, or even a chiffon rose shirt from Swedish brand Lazoschmidl. “I think it’s a very free, and freeing, time,” adding, “I think people are asking, ‘Why not?’ a lot more. Which excites me,” Styles added.
  10. We knew that Team Red Bull was fast but the fact that they have worked on their efficiency even more says a thousand words about their willingness to make everything as favourable for their driver Max Verstappen as they can. For the third time this season, the team has managed to complete a pit stop within two seconds. First they broke the world record in Britain with a 1.91 second stop, then they broke that record by three milliseconds in the German Grand Prix with a 1.88 halt and on Sunday, they managed to scrape off six more milliseconds to form a new world record with the total time of 1.82 seconds in Sao Paulo. While it was Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton who won his sixth World Championship in Texas, USA earlier this month, Team Red Bull must take pride in their coordination and efficacy in the stop, something that played a huge role in helping Verstappen win the Brazilian Grand Prix, his third win of the season. .@Max33Verstappen wins an incredible Brazilian Grand Prix! ...and @PierreGASLY takes his first F1 podium! ð#BrazilGP ð§ð· #F1 pic.twitter.com/XYzmsgnTEx — Formula 1 (@F1) November 17, 2019 The six-time champ, Hamilton was doing well for himself and was at the third position before getting slapped with a five-second penalty after a clash with Alex Albon that caused him his chance of a maiden podium finish in Formula One. While Valtteri Bottas, the second Mercedes driver has to give up his number five spot and retire out of the race with a technical fault in his engine. Watching engine telemetry going south is always a pain in the ass #F1 #Bottas — Mark Gallagher (@_markgallagher) November 17, 2019 Verstappen has proven himself to be worthy of being the face of the Red Bull brand. His prowess behind the wheel combined with the team's execution in the pit could turn out to be the biggest threat to Mercedes and Hamilton's domination over the league. View the full article
  11. Ever since Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton shared his “worries” about how human beings were on the verge of extinction, a lot of criticism came towards the athlete's way because of the profession he is in. i am lewis hamilton, lewis hamilton is me pic.twitter.com/PTOqMM3aEu — ðððð (@lovelyleclerc) October 15, 2019 While Hamilton talked about how important it is to turn vegan and live a life with zero carbon footprint, his critics called him out for all the carbon dioxide that comes from the super-fast cars, that he and numerous others use throughout the year while racing around in circles to win some money and shiny silver trophies. A single formula 1 car emits 17 tons of carbon dioxide a year. So F1 is dull and bad for the planet too! — Jonathan Baldwin â (@jbaldwin) April 1, 2009 Well, Formula One as a whole has finally decided to listen to their environment-friendly fans and have officially announced a plan to go 100 percent carbon neutral by the year 2030. The sport is a lot more dangerous to our Ozone than we think. It is not just the cars that emit an enormous amount of CO2, but also some of the other aspects such as travelling and establishing brand-specific centers at the location of these races turn out to be equally damaging. Even before the F1 cars turn on their fuel guzzling engines, the teams spend over seven million gallons of jet fuel in one season which leads to carbon dioxide emission worth 147 million pounds! © Reuters Considering the fact that the league hopes to make all their carbon-reduction projects sustainable by 2025 and invent the first ever “net-zero carbon hybrid internal combustion engine” around the same time, it feels like a good step but have we run out of time to make such amendments? According to a NASA report, human beings have made such an adverse impact on the environment that global warming will continue at the rate of 6 °C (10.8 °F) on average for decades if not centuries even if we completely stop emitting greenhouse gases. So even if an organisation like Formula One, which is one of the major contributors of CO2 emissions, becomes successful in curbing the adversities following the tracks of their six-time world champion in Hamilton, how big of a difference would that make? Negligible at best? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. View the full article
  12. The idea of motorsports is just a cog in the wheel of India's mass opinion. We consider it a largely elitist hobby that is only affordable for a privileged few, despite being among the world's largest automobile manufacturers. Maybe that's why the country has barely contributed to the global motorsport scene, both in terms of producing world-class race drivers as well as racing technology. Part of the Mahindra & Mahindra automobile conglomerate, Mahindra Racing is out to change the latter, and eventually, influence the former. First things first; Mahindra Racing is the only Indian team (and one of the founder teams) in the Formula E Championship, a quickly growing class of international motorsport that uses only electric cars. It has already garnered a sixth of the total viewership of the Formula 1 around halfway into the fifth season of its existence. A total of 11 teams are contesting for the team championship with two drivers representing each outfit in the 2019 edition. Click here for Formula E rules, points system and more Mahindra Racing had finished on the podium (at third) a couple of seasons ago, followed by a close fourth last year. This season, they were at a healthy third as I arrived in Paris on the eve of the ePrix on Saturday. Jérôme d'Ambrosio of Belgium, who drives the #64 for MR led the driver's standings by one point. “The fundamental line that we use in Formula E is,” Mahindra Racing Team Principle Dilbagh Gill tells me on the sidelines of the race track, “you don't go to the race, the race comes to you.” Dilbagh has had a more than a decade-long journey with Mahindra and comes on the back of a colourful CV with various international projects. He speaks with fervour about being an international pioneer in this field and you might recognise him from passionate mid-race garage visuals. © Mahindra Racing Naysayers were sceptical about the no-sound 'disadvantage' of these cars, the 'slow' speed of the race and the feasibility, he tells me. But Formula E has come a long way with 11 teams in contention this season, with the likes of Porsche and Mercedes said to be joining in from 2020. “It (Formula E) has become a genuine form of racing. It's no longer like Formula 1. This season, the seven races have had seven winners from seven different teams. And you still don't know who will win the eighth one,” he says. “Second part is if you see any traditional forms of motorsport, only males used to watch it. That is also changing, where it is becoming more family oriented. When the father, who is into motorsports and he brings his kid, he is actually having a conversation during the race with him, because they can speak to each other with the loud sounds of the Formula 1.” As a result, the female demographic has warmed up to the idea. “In F1, 80 per cent of the audience is male and 20 per cent is female. Here, it's 52 per cent male and 40 per cent female and 8-10% kids.” The renaissance of EVs in the 21st Century (electric cars held several performance records over internal combustion engine cars but fell behind in performance during the first decade of the 20th century, notable electric-only racing series have shown an upward trend in both cars and bike circuits. Apart from Formula E, there are the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy, the World Rallycross Championship, the World Solar Challenge and the MotoE World Cup. In other racing events, electric vehicles are competing alongside combustion engine vehicles, for example in the Isle of Man TT and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and in some cases winning outright. In January 2017, a pure electric car participated in the Paris-Dakar Rally and completed the entire route of 9000 km through Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia. The vehicle had been specially designed and built for the race. The car had a 250 kW engine (340 hp) and a 150 kWh battery. The battery consisted of several modules. Each module could be charged separately by a power cable to speed up the charging process. The obvious question here is that how does this global electrification impact India? “To a large extent, the user is millennial, says Dilbagh, “They are now delaying the decision to buy the first car. An Uber can pick you up from anywhere at the press of a button, so what's more convenient can be sought. That's why they are delaying those decisions. They are also getting conscious about the mobility coming from the electric and the conversation about sustainability.” With Mahindra Racing, he believes, new electric mobility technology also reaches the end-user quicker. “The transition from race-to-road is much higher and faster. What you see in the car today literally can be in a car within 18 months. While in a conventional model, it takes six years. We say that 2030 (with reference to India's Mission 2030 of going electric-heavy) is far away, but it is just 11 years away and in the next 11 years, Mahindra Racing will have 15 alterations in developing a new car (one race technology every Formula E season).” But where does that take us in terms of motorsport in India? Barring the maiden edition of the Formula 1 that took place in the then-newly inaugurated Buddha International Circuit in Noida, India has stayed away from the global motorsport map. Of course, due credit has to be given to Narain Karthikeyan and Karun Chandhok, but the impact has been hot and cold. Racers have not really lined up to participate in competitions like Indian Formula Manipal DJS Racing Indian National Rally Championship JK Tyre National Racing Championship SPCE Racing 4ZE Racing. “We just need a little bit more clarification in terms of regulations in India, because a lot of other drivers in the championship are still fighting the tax problems, they couldn't drive in Formula One. There is no clear directive yet, as to where does motorsport fall in terms of taxation,” says Dilbagh. Mahindra Racing is now aspiring to further its long-term goals by escalating driver education in India. They want to use the data from the race track and find a way to reach out to public transport and truck drivers in the country for better efficiency. Electric is the way forward after all. “There is a huge shift from three peddled and now going two to one peddle drive. While we talk of passenger cars also, if we can take some of this data and put it in commercial vehicle, you can increase the range by 15-20 percent by just using a peddle inside. At the end of the day you get more mileage and money. Mileage to money there is direct correlation.” I came to Paris with very little knowledge about e-racing but by the end of the weekend, there has been so much to take away despite a bittersweet race day for Mahindra Racing (where Jerome crashed and the team was unlucky to not start the race at the pole position). The beauty of Formula E lies in the fact that the eight race of the season saw its eighth winner, from the eighth distinct country. If we can find a way to channel the passion of the drivers, the ambitions of the manufacturers and the will of the powers-to-be, there could still be hope of saving the environment in a manner that is both simple and modern. © Mahindra Racing © Mahindra Racing
  13. 'Eating clean and eating lean' is a way of life that has been made all the more popular in the recent times, courtesy the long ongoing cultural awakening with regards to food consumption. Veganism, Pescetarianism and all the other -isms making their way to mainstream diet categories every other day is proof that the world is only catching up to something that Indians have been privy to for the longest time. How, you ask? Well, the ancient Ayurvedic philosophy of 'sattvic aahaar' has been preached and followed in the Indian subcontinent for the longest time. Sattvic foods are fresh, juicy, light, nourishing, as well as tasty, which give necessary energy to our body without taxing it. Thus, when it comes to “eating clean and eating lean' we have had the secret within our reach all along. © MensXP But the issue is, with commercialisation ruling over our lives, we haven't been able to stick to the philosophy the way we should. So, two friends decided to take matters into their own hands and change things for good. But how could they compete with the roaring popularity of packaged food that was such a hit with one and all, and also happened to be the main culprit behind why we moved away from the sattvic way of life in the first place. That is exactly what that led to the inception of Sattviko, which aims to present traditional Indian recipes with a modern twist. Sure enough, no sooner had they launched that their products took the entire 'packaged food' market by storm, making them the largest global Indian brand which takes Indianness to every household. © MensXP Today, Sattviko's flavoured makhana, gud chana, khakra chips, and minute namkeen are some of their most sought after products. But this success didn't come easy to Prasoon and Ankush, who are the masterminds behind 'Sattviko'. Before they got their hands on the winning formula, the duo had to face their own share of setbacks. There were two major learning curves they had to work through before they struck gold. Prasoon and Ankush had launched their first startup Tech Buddies with a few of their friends during their final year at IIT Roorkee. After graduation they shifted base to Delhi and within a year managed to achieve a turnover of 1 crore. But soon one of their key partners Suren, quit the venture, followed by two others. © MensXP At this point Prasoon and Ankush decided to move to Jaipur to the explore the opportunity their. But even with large expansion, they did not get the desired returns and had to sell of their company by the end of 2013. This bugged Prasoon to no end, he couldn't keep still until he discovered what was the reason behind the company's unsuccessful trajectory. By the end of that year, after much self-reflection and groundwork, Prasoon and Ankush decided to launch a chain of restaurants that served traditional Indian sattvic food. While at it, they also introduced sattvic food in packaged form and that became a huge hits with consumers. That is how they decided to shut their restaurants and focus entirely on packaged traditional Indian food items instead. © MensXP Talking about this huge leap, Prasoon told MensXP that, “we didn't know ABC of packaged food business when we started out,” and yet within a short span of 4 years Sattviko has managed to reintroduce sattvic food to 10 million Indians. For them, “entrepreneurship is just like a regular profession, but with extra challenges. However, the long term satisfaction is much bigger.” Sattiko as a team has grown manifolds since its creation, and people who are connected to the brand live by the philosophy of seva or service. Prasoon and Ankush plan to take Sattviko to the global platform, and have no plans of stopping any time soon. Catch Prasoon and Ankush share more insights into entrepreneurship, its challenges and quirks, as they spill the beans on their success mantra to MensXP.

  15. Thanks to the internet and some decent people on it, they tell you the right things that you need to fix your nutrition and train with weights to do that. You get these basics right and start seeing some progress and then suddenly, you hit a wall. You feel worn out in the gym and feel like a truck has hit you after every session. You are terribly sore and there is a chance that a trainer has tried selling you some useless supplement by telling you it's the only solution to your problem. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Maybe you bought into it but again you are still worn out and feel like the gym sessions are more of a punishment than something you look forward to. You are doing everything right (seemingly so) and yet not seeing progress. Isn't it frustrating? Do You Want To Know What Is Missing? You Are Missing Your Sleep Rest and recovery are equally or rather more important than your nutrition and training alone. Obviously, they hold importance too but if you feel like shit every time you step in and out of the gym, there is a good chance you will not continue with your training or your nutrition for long. Why am I emphasizing so much on sleep? That is because it helps you rest and recover and ensures you hit the gym with the same intensity and have a good session and help you get stronger with time. The strength gains will help you become jacked. © Thinkstock/Getty Images If you do not get enough sleep, you will get fatter and not jacked. Studies have shown that poor sleep can be correlated to current or future obesity. [1, 2, 3]. Lack of sleep could also lead to poor cognition and a drop in performance. [4] All in all, we now know that poor sleep is bad for your gains. So how do we fix that and get on our way to Gainsville? Here are five practical tips you can implement right away to improve your sleep: 1. Suns Out, Guns... I'll let the bros complete this one for me. Now do not end up getting out with your stringers on and flex your biceps every time you see daylight. But do get some sunlight during the day. The blue-spectrum intensive white light that appears in the early part of the day has shown to improve sleep quality along with increased alertness and improved performance. [5] If you are someone who lives in a region where natural sunlight is very limited for a significant part of the day or the year, you should consider investing in a daylight lamp which mimics sunlight and get exposure to that light during the earlier part of the day. They are cheap and they get the job done. 2. Screens Off A major problem that I myself face is mindlessly scrolling through the internet late night. Along with getting into the cycle of 'I should have slept earlier last night' and '10 more minutes right now won't harm', a lot of screen time at night can drop the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep, [6] leaving you with a terrible sleep cycle. To counter this, set a time at night (usually an hour pre-bed) and keep the phone away. Or you can use a social media blocker app to revoke its access after a certain time of the day. 3. To Caf Or Not? Caffeine or that magical sweet nectar of black coffee gives an amazing kick whenever you consume it but it could be harming your sleep as well. To ensure that caffeine is not disturbing your sleep cycle, limit its intake 6 hours pre-bed. And if you still face a problem, cut it off 8-10+ hours before bed-time. There is a high chance that you have a poor tolerance. 4. Take A Warm Bath Us humans or rather most mammals feel comfortable when we are warm. This also results in better sleep. It is a good idea getting a warm (remember: warm and not hot) shower or bath before bed and you will sleep like a baby. 5. Meditate Your mind is capable of wandering away and being hyperactive, whether you are stressed or not. Here is where meditation can come in, and fix you up. It may sound like an easy thing to do but trust me, it is nothing like it. How to get started? Focus on an object, like a window sill or a chair or a table or a bottle or whatever that is there in your room which generally does not arouse any emotion and keep your mind focused on it. If it sounds too tough, just focus on taking a few deep breaths as you lay down. By incorporating these pointers, get a good night's sleep and make sure that all the hard work you are putting in your nutrition and training is actually paying you off.

  16. For most of us, success means more money and more money means more happiness, right? What if one day someone finally told you that you've been chasing a fake metric all this while? Success does bring happiness but it is not the only source of satisfaction. Living a happy life is more important metric than being successful. Don't you think so? And after all, it is not that hard if we are able to separate happiness and success as two different entities. © Thinkstock Today, more and more people are successful but they are not as happy as people were back in the day. Earlier, people used to grow the food they needed, drink and enjoy the company of their family and friends. They did not have other metrics to chase down. Today, people are struggling to conform to a work-life balance, all thanks to the way our society has evolved and how we all have been following it blindly. Still, there are some people who can see happiness the way it is and it is in the simple things in life. When Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was young, he defined a successful life for himself. He may not be as renowned as his late co-founder Steve Jobs was but still, he believes he has been successful in living a happy life which still seems as a distant dream for most of us. © Reuters This is how Steve succinctly puts it, "I thought out my philosophies when I was about 20 years old ... How do you do in life? ... How do you become a good person? If I died and had all this wealth and yachts and all this stuff, would I be as happy as when I laugh? And I thought about pranks I played and jokes I had told and music I would hear that would make me smile, and I came up with my formula that life is about happiness.” He further adds, "Maybe success with money makes you happy too — but for me, it was really just down to earth laughter and smiles. So I came up with my formula: Happiness equals smiles minus frowns," says Wozniak. "H = S-F." That's his formula for living a happy and a content life. More smiles and fewer frowns. He follows it with this statement, “How do you get rid of the frowns? I worked on that. Don't care that much that you are going to frown. Let things happen. Things do go badly in life and just say, 'Hey, my car got scratched, I will fix it.” © Reuters "And don't argue. Don't argue! You don't win an argument, you just walk away unhappy. You only have to convince one person in life, and that is yourself. This kept me so happy, to this day. My mind just kind of floats in a state of happiness and I just don't really have a lot of always being upset," adds Steve. Recently, when Bitcoin surged in price he did not hold on to the coins but he outright sold them. Steve says, "I was never into money in any way — finance — to this day I have never used Apple stock app, I don't buy and sell stock. I don't want that kind of care in my life. Part of my happiness is not to have worries." I hope you have learnt a valuable lesson as well. Define your own metric now and do not blindly follow anything that the crowd is following.
