Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent re­search, the so-called ‘se­nior mo­ments’ are in­creas­ingly show­ing up among young­sters. Mil­len­ni­als (aged 18-34 years) are more likely than those over 55 to for­get sim­ple stuff like dates or where they put their keys… Need of the hour: Just as you ex­er­cise your body, ex­er­cise your brain. No word puz­zles or Sudoku here. Turn to ‘Mind Game’ to learn how ‘neu­ro­bics’ can keep your brain pump­ing. It is fun, in­ter­est­ing and easy… …There’s an easy pick-me-up that is be­ing lapped by all and sundry – nu­tri­tion bars. They come in vary­ing shapes and sizes and are called by dif­fer­ent names like pro­tein bars or snack bars. But are they as healthy as they are touted to be? ‘Food Note’ alerts you on what ex­actly goes into the mak­ing of th­ese en­ergy fixes, and how you can make smart snack­ing choices… Smart, sexy and su­per fit… Mo­hit Raina is our man of the mo­ment. From the time he sported his rip­pling six-pack on tele­vi­sion (‘Ma­hadev’), he be­came the small screen’s Greek God. Read ‘Fit & Fa­mous’ to know all about how the ac­tor was 100 (plus) kgs at one time and how fit­ness ob­sessed he cur­rently is… Mo­hit’s jour­ney is in­spir­ing, and his ripped abs, DROOL-WOR­THY! …In­spir­ing child­less cou­ples is a cur­rent trend that is catch­ing on with In­dian celebs – Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Tusshar Kapoor, Karan Jo­har. It is called sur­ro­gacy. Not ex­actly new, but when fa­mous peo­ple en­dorse it, it helps erase the ta­boo associated with it. ‘Par­ent­ing’ de­codes sur­ro­gacy – its types, treat­ments, laws and more – for all those not in the know… Makes for an in­for­ma­tive read! Read also our ‘Win­ter & Party Spe­cial’ – spe­cially put to­gether to help you beat the chill ‘n’ chill out too! From healthy par­ty­ing and drink­ing tips to brac­ing up for the cold, the spe­cial has all you need to end the year on a healthy note, as I sign off, with grat­i­tude (thank you, dear reader, for continuing to trek this well­ness jour­ney with us), love and a fond adieu to 2017!
