healthy hacks

Holiday season is here, and we tend to eat more and put on some extra weight. In my opinion it is not solely because we are eating more cookies, pastries, chocolates, desserts, or even larger portions of food, but because we are not exercising. This time of the year we usually engage in activities after […]

As you know in ancient mythology, the sirens would lure nearby sailors with their enchanting songs, so their boats would shipwreck against the rocky coasts and end tragically with their lives.
