Top 5 Most-Visited Historical Places in Riyadh

The capital city of Saudi Arabia has grown from a mud-bricked trading hub in the middle of nowhere with barely any visitors to being one of the busiest and wealthiest cities in the world. Despite the well-reserved and traditional social upbringing that many of its inhabitants have had, they are among the most welcoming, generous, and kind people you’ll ever come across. As Saudi Arabia continues to focus on growing its tourism sector through the means of attracting international visitors, as well as its local people, one can expect to see a lot of historically rich places being open to the public. So if you’re looking for the most-visited historical places in Riyadh, you’ve come to the right place! 


Al Masmak Fort:

Al Masmak Fort

Built-in 1865 and located in the central part of Riyadh. It’s home to a museum that’s rated as one of the most visited tourist destinations in the city. The word “Masmak ” stands for high and forfeited, and it has served multiple functions throughout its existence. From being a warehouse for weapons and ammo to turning into a prison and later overseen and maintained by King Salman Ibn Abdul Aziz who was responsible for establishing Al Masmak Historical Museum in 1995 AD. The SCTH launched an app for a virtual tour through 3D images of Al Masmak Fort to chronologically display the history of modern Saudi Arabia. The museum houses a wide variety of historical artifacts and is an excellent place for those who want to learn about the country’s heritage. The entrance is free.

 


Deerah Souq:

Deerah Souq

Not so far from Al Masmak Fort lies quite a noteworthy shopping center, immensely popular for the gold shops that some people call it the Deerah Gold Souq. It has a plethora of small shops selling carpets, traditional clothes, and many eye-catching antiques and handcrafts. And what makes it so special is the existence of a wide variety of options selling the same commodity but with slight differences that only an expert such as yourself would be able to notice, so it’s an excellent opportunity for bargaining (most of the shop owners speak English) and comparing merchandise in order to end up with the best deal possible.

 


Murabba Palace:

Murabba Palace

Built-in 1938 as a governmental facility for hosting official meetings and conferences, it was here where the convention of opening the country for oil inspection was signed. And it was also King Abdul Aziz’s personal residence, a spacious and comfortable place to accommodate the King’s family. The Murabba Palace houses many historical artifacts and photos about the country’s creation, as well as personal belongings and gifts that the King had received.

 


The National Museum:

National museum

Part of King Abdul Aziz Historical Center, it was established in 1999 as a historical and cultural center while being the Kingdom’s biggest museum. The museum consists of 8 exhibitions walking the visitors through different periods of time in chronologically correct order: Man and the Universe, Arabian Kingdoms, The Pre-Islamic Era, Prophet Mohammad’s Mission, Islam and the Arabian Peninsula, First and the Second Saudi States, The Unification, and The Hajj and the Two Holy Mosques. It’s a charming scenery for those who seek to learn more about the history and heritage of the Arab Peninsula.

 How can we finish an article on the most-visited historical places in Riyadh without talking about the home of the Saudi Royal family and the first Saudi capital, the city of Diriyah. It’s among the 5 Saudi historical sites identified by the UNESCO List of World Heritage. One of the largest Arabian Peninsula cities before it was later destroyed in 1818 by the Ottoman armies, the city is now one of the most sought-after places worldwide, a  bright and shining cultural, historical, and tourist attraction spot.

Top Benefits of Healthy Eating & Well Balanced Diet

Benefits of Healthy Eating with Yalla Cook

They say we only live once, so we should live life to the fullest. Since we have only one life, one body, shouldn’t we take the utmost care of it? Knowing the benefits of healthy eating is a step in that direction.

But how do you take care of your body through diet and healthy meal prep?

Eating a well-balanced diet isn’t about strict limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood.

Let’s have a look at some amazing benefits of healthy eating… 

 

  • Weight Loss with Healthy Eating

Weight Loss is a crucial benefit in itself. But a lot of health-related issues also trace back to weight. Losing weight can help you reduce the risk of chronic diseases and conditions. If a person is overweight or obese, they have a higher risk of developing several ailments like heart diseases, diabetes, bone density, cancers to name a few.

Use fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains to replace high-fat, high-calorie foods. Staying within your required calorie range is vital for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

  • Improved Memory with a Balanced diet

A healthy diet may help in the prevention of dementia and cognitive decline.

A study, ‘Neurology, Psychiatry, and Brain research’ (2015) identified nutrients and foods that protect against these adverse effects. They found out that the following intakes are beneficial:

    • Vitamin D, C, and E
    • Omega-3 fatty acids
    • Flavonoids and polyphenols foods
    • Fish

Improved memory with a well balanced diet

 

  • Better Sleep for Better Health

‘Sleep apnea’ is caused by an unhealthy diet. 

In this condition, the sleep pattern is disturbed, and you wake up tired. It occurs when the airways are repeatedly blocked during sleep. The medical condition arises due to obesity, an unhealthy diet, and irregular diet patterns.  

Reducing the consumption of caffeine ensures restful sleep, whether or not a person has sleep apnea.

  • Better Mood for Better Self

Ever wondered why you feel happy after eating molten lava cake? Well, it’s just not you. It’s biology!

A study by Dartmouth has indicated the relation between food and mood varies dramatically depending on the person, so they recommend a well-balanced diet rich in protein, moderate in carbohydrates, and low in fat since this could generally improve the mood of most people.

Let’s jump into what we can do.

Best way to cleanse your body – Detoxify at home

Detoxifying is the best way to cleanse your body

Toxins, even the word sounds scary.  If you’re trying to find the best way to cleanse your body, toxins will have to exit the room entirely!

People don’t realize how harmful their favorite food can be for them. Spices, oil, meat, caffeine, everything gets stored in the body in the form of toxins. They don’t grasp how they interact with human physiology and how problematic it is.

Before understanding why detoxification is important for the body, let’s learn a bit more about toxins and why the best way to cleanse your body is to get rid of them… 

What are Toxins?

A toxin is a form of poison that comes from a plant or animal. It enters the human body through unhealthy food. They are small molecules, peptides, or proteins that can cause disease if absorbed by body tissue and biological macromolecules (enzymes or cellular receptors).

Some of them are naturally removed by body organs and some stay in the human body and hinder bodily functions.

Why Is Detoxification Important?

Simply put, natural detoxification is important to keep your body healthy and get your immune system strong, which is bound to come handy in times like these.

natural detoxification

To understand this further, let’s see how they are harmful.

  • Toxins poison enzymes

Every physiological function (esp energy production and cell structure) depends on enzymes, making them the engines of your body.

But then, unhealthy food brings toxic materials into the body that cripple body functioning. Toxins undermine hemoglobin production and accelerate aging.

  • Weak Bones

Strong bones provide strength and mobility to the body.

When toxins come in the body, it displaces the bone calcium and makes bones weaker. The calcium, cadmium, and lead, when displaced from bones, increases the risk of hearing loss and renal damage. It also affects negatively on the liver and kidneys.

  • Damaged Cell Membranes

The function of cell membranes is to catch signals from the body. It signals the cell to absorb sugar, relax muscles, etc.

But when there are toxins in the body, the cell membrane becomes polluted. The damaged membrane prevents the cell from receiving important messages in time.

  • Hormonal Imbalance

Hormonal balance keeps the body well and functioning. While hormonal imbalance is the uneven distribution of hormone levels throughout the body – some hormonal levels are too high and others are too low. 

Guess who’s responsible for hormonal imbalance? Yes, toxins!

They induce, inhibit, and block hormones. They interfere with body functions, disrupt hormone receptors on the cell, and end up disturbing your metabolism.

  • Toxins Damage Organs

As we’ve mentioned earlier, toxins damage organs and body systems. 

Lungs and kidneys are natural body detoxifiers. But when these organs are toxic, they can’t detox effectively. 

Take notice of what you eat and beware of the toxins ruining your body. 

  • Gene Expression

Our genes have the ability to switch off and on to adapt to changes in our bodies and the outer environment. 

But when we eat unhealthy food, the toxins activate or suppress our genes in undesirable ways.

Since we’re what we eat, let’s switch to a healthy diet to enjoy a healthy life.

Why is Fitness Important for Women

4 Key Benefits of Working Out for Women

What is fitness? 

Fitness means different for different people. Fitness isn’t just about losing weight and toning up. 

It’s about caring for your health and mind. It’s about staying in shape and being happy.  

Although young women are becoming a lot more health-conscious today, there are still some middle-aged women who forgo their own health for the sake of their families. While it may seem worthwhile in the short run to only spend your responsibilities, energy, and care-giving tendencies for your family and kids, it’s important for women to look after themselves. 

The path toward fitness for women encompasses a wide range of benefits that will enhance your life, physically, mentally, and emotionally as well. Let’s have a look at these benefits.

  • Healthy Heart

A physically active boy keeps the heart healthy and strong. A healthy heart has fewer chances of cardiovascular diseases and strokes, diabetes, osteoporosis, etc,. 

An active heart also takes out functions of blood circulation and maintains cholesterol and blood pressure well.

  • Weight Loss

Exercising less is still better than not exercising at all. 

Being overweight causes a lot of problems, from worn joints to heart disease and all problems in between. Being physically active can overcome all these challenges.

According to a survey conducted by NuffieldTrust, by 2034, 70% of women are expected to be overweight or obese. That’s why today, more than ever, it’s recommended by most doctors that women exercise for a minimum of half an hour three times a week. 

Stay fit!

  • Mental Health

The benefits of physical fitness also include improved quality of life and wellbeing.

Hormones released during physical activity help women produce energy and reduce anxiety. As a result, it ensures a healthy mind that wouldn’t fall prey to negativity. 

Regular fitness routine impacts positively and fights with depression, anxiety, and much more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps in sleeping better, and boosts mood.

What Is Theta Healing?

Live a healthy peaceful life with Theta Healing

The last two months passed in the gloomy haze of lockdown. 

We’re all in this together. We lost our focus, attention, and connection with the universe. If that’s what you’ve been feeling lately, here’s some good news for you.

Theta healing can change all your negative energies into positive. Let’s restore our connection with ourselves and be at peace, naturally.    

To begin with, let’s find out what is this?

Theta healing
inner peace

What is Theta Healing?

Theta Healing is a prominent healing method that was created in 1995 by Vianna Stibal during her personal journey of healing from a leg tumor. 

Vianna Sitbal is a renowned author, spiritual healer, and teacher of spiritual philosophy. According to her, theta healing is a technique of meditation and spiritual philosophy, irrespective of religion.

She discovered that emotions and beliefs affect us on a core, genetic, history, and soul level. 

Theta healing develops natural intuition by changing the brain wave cycle to the theta waves with the intention of exploring how emotional energy affects a person’s health.

This training is meant for the body, mind, and spirit and gives one the ability to get rid of limiting beliefs and live a life full of positive thoughts through prayer and meditation.

Simply put, it’s a meditation training technique utilizing a spiritual philosophy for improvement and evolvement of mind, body, and spirit.

What are the benefits?

A Theta Healing session usually lasts between 30 to 90 minutes, and the number of sessions varies depending on the issue you want to heal. The end result and benefits of Theta healing are worth those 90 minutes.

Here’s a list of few benefits:

  1. Reveals your creative potential
  2. Puts an end to fears and phobias
  3. Frees you from addictions and habits
  4. Makes your spiritual connection deeper
  5. Aids you in attaining personal freedom
  6. Helps you to be healthier and feel well
  7. Heals physical illnesses
  8. Treats emotional problems and trauma
  9. Assists in becoming more confident
  10. Manifests your dreams and goals
  11. Teaches you how to grow harmonious relationships
  12. Unlocks your Genius Potential

From the first session, the benefits will be evident, and you’d want to attend more sessions until you are completely healed and satisfied.

Meditation

Theta healing meditation creates physical, psychological, and spiritual healing using the Theta brain wave. While in pure theta state if mind, we’re able to connect to the Creator of All and seek peace.

Theta healing meditation is for all those who are searching for answers, knowledge, and peace. The majority of people who learn it are pure of heart and seeking to activate what lies dormant in their minds. This is what it’s designed to do, teach people how to harness their psychic abilities through spiritual awareness.

Practitioners believe that there are Seven Planes of existence, seen and unseen. The unseen lies in the forces of the cosmos that exist in different dimensions of this universe.

When a mind is in the theta phase, it enables us to perceive and absorb the positive energies.

Each of the Planes has its own particular energy i.e., vibration. The frequency of vibration is what makes the planes different from one another. The spiritual and physical inhabitants of the planes different as well.

These vibrations are the essence of life in all its forms.

Play music specifically for theta healing and start mediating.

Life After Curfew

What will happen after the curfew is eased?

The government has eased the curfew and hopefully, it will be completely over soon. But unfortunately, ease in timings doesn’t mean that the threat of COVID-19 has passed too. 

Coronavirus is still here to haunt us and we need to stay cautious. 

Post-lockdown life will not be as we used to live it. To protect ourselves and our families we need to know how life will be changed when the lockdown is lifted.

Spread positivity, not virus
Spread positivity, not the virus

As of now, we don’t know what life after Corona will be, but we can foresee what life after curfew will be. Let’s look at different aspects of life that will evolve into a new normal.

  • Social Life

Our social life will bear the most Corona impact.

Gatherings and parties will continue to be held, but it’ll be in a simple manner with only the maximum number of people allowed by the government, in attendance.

To keep ourselves safe, we should ideally limit hosting and inviting people to parties, social functions, group meetings, large-scale conferences, and other celebrations.  

social distancing signs
Keep a safe distance
  • Tourism 

Tourism took a massive hit during this pandemic, and for the right reasons. Foreign tourists have the biggest share in uplifting the tourism industry of any country. Globetrotters became homebound and the industry came to a standstill.

Even though flights will be resumed soon, it seems that vacation plans will have to be at hold until the things return to normal and we’re at the least risk of getting infected.

Travel

  • Entertainment

Staying at home, people have made use of time to binge-watch all the seasons & movies they ever wanted to see. Netflix and Amazon Prime became the ultimate entertainment channels.

Theaters and cinema halls are still under government ban, so the couch is your best friend for much longer now. Hit us up for shows recommendations!

Netflix and chill!
Netflix and chill!
  • Education

Lockdown has pushed us to digitize our education system. Virtual classrooms and e-learning are here to stay. 

After the lockdown is lifted, schools and colleges will allow a limited number of students and social distance between each student. It appears that timings will be reduced and school functions will be prohibited for a while.

Every student will be instructed to wear masks and carry sanitizer in their bags.

Virtual classes at home
  • Economy

A country’s economy depends on it’s GDP, no doubt about that.

GDP will increase if sales and services increase. But lockdown has brought all the finances in a difficult situation. 

The economy has faced a huge blow, and it will take years to restore the global economy back to normal. But we’ll get there, one step at a time.

Crisis

Human beings are adaptable and flexible. You’ve managed to stay under curfew for more than 11 weeks, now it’s your responsibility to make sure all safety precautions are duly met when and if you do plan to go out.

The safest way to protect ourselves from COVID-19 is to stay home even when the lockdown is over and learn to coexist with Corona.

What’s our Civic Responsibility after Curfew Ends?

Civic Responsibilities That We Should Be Aware Of

The government has eased the coronavirus lockdown from the start of June. In the three-phase ease, the country will hopefully return to normalcy.  

From May 31st to June 20th, the curfew time will be further relaxed in the Kingdom’s regions, except Makkah, between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Even though we’re getting rid of the curfew, we shouldn’t forget our civic responsibilities in order to keep our communities and families safe. The biggest challenge aka Covid-19 is still out there, so protect yourselves.

Follow the safety instructions against Corona given by the government and the WHO. Here’s a list of instructions that you can follow and learn how to avoid Coronavirus.

  • Wear Masks

The safest and most effective precaution to stop the spread of coronavirus is to wear a mask. Change your mask every day, and dispose of it the right way.

  • Wash Your Hands

Keep washing

Wash your hands for 20 seconds before wearing gloves, and after you take them off. Learn the WHO safety protocols and wash your hands accordingly. 

Wash your hands with clean water and soap. Lather your hands and rub your hands for 20 seconds.

While washing your hands, keep in mind to turn off the tap. In the midst of one global crisis, let’s not worsen another. 

  • Sanitize frequently

When the lockdown is over and you’re free to roam outside, and water and soap are not available everywhere, replace it with the sanitizer. 

Buy the pocket-sized alcohol-based sanitizer and use it frequently. Use it over your gloves after touching surfaces that are frequently touched by others.

  • Avoid Social Gatherings

be a civic responsible citizen

For Coronavirus prevention, avoid attending large gatherings even if you’re allowed outside. A gathering of more than 20 people could result in heavy penalties from the government.

Take necessary precautions before visiting malls or restaurants. Keep a safe distance from other families while visiting the park with your kids.

  • Maintain Social Distancing

We all agree on the importance of social distancing. The lockdown days are soon to be over but the social distancing protocols still stand.

It’s our civic obligation to be responsible and maintain a distance of at least 3 steps. Avoid shaking hands with people and follow hygiene etiquettes.
