Listen to the silence, hearing nothing but the sound of your mind!

KARACHI: Bewildered by the noisy, distracting life, humans need to spend some time of peace and tranquility with him/herself!

As a matter of fact, rising noise pollution is taking its toll on individuals and its impacts are corrosive to health.

Lets learn about the importance of silence and how it affects our well-being.

Silence Releases Stress:

Yes, you have heard the true bit! Unwanted sounds could potentially trigger distress, sleep chaos, hypertension and even heart attacks.

Not to mention that blasting noise could snowball the levels of stress by releasing the cortisol hormone.

Whereas, silence on the other hand, can relieve tension and stress. A research concluded that two minutes of silence is better than soothing music to be relaxed.

Freshens Mental Resources:

These days, people have to perform many tasks in a single day, which results into making their attention resources worn out. As a result, they become tired and exhausted and are unable to focus on work.

Nevertheless, our brain can replenish its finite cognitive resources in the silent milieu. Be it professional and personal life, this helps coming up with creative ideas.

Lets Talk to Yourself:

As mentioned earlier, sometimes we want time to spend with our own beings. Silence leads us to the world of imagination and daydreaming about the future. It lets our mind wander. As a result, we tap into our inner thoughts, emotions, memoirs and ideas.

Rejuvenates Brain Cells:

It has been scientifically proven that two hours of silence every day could wreak the growth of new cells in the hippocampus, a major brain zone linked with learning, memory and emotion. 

Also, silence could prove to be beneficial for people suffering from depression and Alzheimer’s, which are connected with reduced rates of neuron regeneration in the hippocampus.

LAHORE: CJP while hearing a suo motu case against the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) said today that the NAB would investigate alleged corruption in the organisation.

An assistant pharmacist who claimed she was wrongfully removed from her position at the PIC brought the matter to the attention of the court earlier.

A two judge bench led by CJP Mian Saqib Nisar today held the first hearing of a suo motu case regarding the matter at the Lahore registry.

The CJP lambasted Punjab government and PIC officials over the appointment of PIC board member Afzal Bhatti ─ who also holds a post as the commissioner of the Overseas Pakistanis Commission Punjab ─ asking how a dual national was designated commissioner and a board member of the PIC.

CJP Nisar also asked Bhatti how much his salary was, to which the latter replied that it was Rs550,000 a month. The CJP observed that the provincial chief secretary only earned Rs180,000 a month. “What makes you so special?” he wondered.

Adviser to the Chief Minister Khawaja Hasan, Punjab Health Minister Khawaja Salman Rafique and PIC head Nadeem Hayat Malik also appeared in court today.

“How did all this happen in your presence?” the CJP asked Hasan. “I am sorely tempted to summon the chief minister and show him these proceedings.”

The CJP also asked Khawaja Salman Rafique to keep noting “whatever is happening in the Health Ministry”.

KARACHI: During summers, our hair tend to stay greasy too often. In order to avoid oily scalp, people tend to wash their heads on a daily basis. However, this approach is marring their hair.

So how can we keep our hair shiny, healthy and dry in summers? Newspakistan.tv will guide you appropriately in this article.

  • Wash your scalp and roots

Individuals often do the mistake of washing the ends of their hair only while avoiding the scalp and roots, resulting into having oily hair. Therefore, always massage your scalp and roots and then wash the ends.

  • Leave’em be

In order to look smart, people tend to style their hair via straighteners and blow dry, which in return makes hair oily. So, leave your hair as it is.

  • Clean the hairbrush

Hairbrushes harbor dead skin and other debris, which, on combing, diffuse those through the hair. Therefore, keep your brushes and combs clean.

  • Stop playing with’em

Folks particularly girls tend to play with their hair sans knowing the fact that this habit could make them greasy and oily so avoid playing with’em.

  • Pick up natural products

Don’t listen to the bogus claims of the big brands as such products are stuffed with chemicals. Always pick out natural shampoos.

  • Apply coconut oil

Oiling in summers sounds bizzare. However, this essential oil could chip-in towards making your hair nourish and healthy from root to ends while eliminating oil from the scalp.
