Pi­lot, biker, racer, marathoner, ad­ven­ture trav­eller and more... Gul Panag is an adren­a­line junkie who loves liv­ing on the edge. And help­ing her live it up is her healthy fit­ness level – “ex­er­cise helps me in ev­ery­thing else I do,” she says. Se­nior Cor­re­spon­dent Harsha Ad­vani un­rav­els the beauty queen-turned-ac­tor’s fun, fear­less ‘n’ fit­ness-con­scious avatar (‘Fit & Fa­mous’) - a facet that will in­spire you to tap into your ad­ven­tur­ous side, and get go­ing! ...Don’t get too ad­ven­tur­ous though when it comes to tak­ing painkillers. Tak­ing OTC or pre­scrip­tion painkillers may seem like a sim­ple so­lu­tion to treat pain, but they come with long-term health risks. ‘Pain Man­age­ment’ ad­dresses the is­sue in-depth and sug­gests pill-free treat­ments for pain. Worth a read... Think you are wor­thy of treat­ing your­self to a creamy cheese­burger while ac­ing that project at work? Think again. You may be cor­po­rate bing­ing, which can mess badly with your oral health. ‘Den­tal Care’ shows you how not to fall prey to the new health evil that’s tak­ing the work­place by storm... ...Don’t also get per­turbed if can­cer runs in your fam­ily. Turn to ‘Health Alert’ to find out how tun­ing in to your fam­ily’s can­cer his­tory can help you rec­og­nize your po­ten­tial risk. And this World Can­cer Day (Fe­bru­ary 4th), pledge to do all you can to pro­tect your­self from the dis­ease, whether you are at risk or not... Risk your­self to fall in love... It sure is a beau­ti­ful feel­ing but don’t risk faulty be­hav­iours to ruin your love life. ‘Sex Capers’ iden­ti­fies bed­room habits that are in­creas­ingly pos­ing a threat to a re­la­tion­ship. Fix them, and make your co­coon of love a place of bliss, not tiffs... Read also, our sto­ries on de­cod­ing fat freez­ing, mus­cle cramp­ing, the pa­leo diet and more... And lastly, here’s our li’l Valen­tine’s mes­sage for you: Love your­self a bit more, as your re­la­tion­ship with your­self sets the tone for ev­ery other re­la­tion­ship you have! A happy and healthy V-Day to ev­ery­one
