How salute the Cambodian way
As young Cambodians, we should definitely know how to salute in different ways. Saluting preserves the identity of our nation and indicates our respect for one another. To salute friends, we clasp our hands in front of our chest. To salute elders, we clasp our hand in front our mouth. To salute grandparents and teachers, we clasp our hand on the bottom of our nose. Finally, to salute monks and kings, we clasp our hands on the space between our eyebrows.

How to boost your energy with caffeine
Did you know that caffeine can be beneficial for your health and well-being? Before the gym, a cup of coffee or tea has been proven to help your blood process glucose while you work out. In simple terms, this means you’ll burn more fat. Aside from exercise, caffeine can also help increase concentration. Make sure to be careful when consuming caffeine, as consuming excess quantities has been linked to depression – don’t have more than three cups per day. Personally, I like to drink a cup of coffee while I’m doing my night-time assignments.


How to avoid depression with melon
We all experience stages of tiredness, depression and stress. Students, especially, can be overwhelmed with their work. However, it turns out that eating melon can alleviate symptoms of depression. Melon has been proven to aid sleeping habits, which in turn leads to a happier every-day life. If you’re stressed, grab a bite of melon!


How to stay fit with milk
The latest scientific reports from Cambodia have confirmed that drinking milk regularly can increase our lifespan. Just one glass per day can provide enough calcium to maintain and strengthen our bodies – milk aids the heart in producing a vital hormone, rebuilds our anti-virus immunities and can even help repair broken bones. Also, milk can improve our skin complexion.

How to indulge in healthy chocolate
Have you ever eaten a cherry? It’s a divine accompaniment to milk, dark and white chocolate. But even beyond taste, there’s a hidden health benefit to mixing dark chocolate and cherry. If the two are eaten together, cherry releases catechin: an antioxidant, or a healthy substance for our body, in the chocolate. It helps to improve our heart function and health. Catechin can also be found in tea and red wine.
