Unusual Ways To Relieve Stress

Unusual Ways To Relieve Stress

Stress might be invisible, but it can cause damage to people as if it were a physical ailment. Feeling stressed isn’t nice, and going through some of the physical changes that it can present isn’t nice, either. You could lose your appetite, feel tired all the time, struggle to sleep, want to eat even more, lost your hair – the list goes on. The body responds to stress in different ways, and people deal with it in different ways.

 

However, you may want some new methods of relieving stress that you haven’t heard of before.     Here are some unusual ways of relieving stress that you might find interesting!

 

Meditate

Sitting around ‘doing nothing’ might seem strange when you feel stressed, but meditation is so much more than that. If you haven’t tried it yet, download an app and see if you can carve 10 minutes out of your day to do it. You’ll relieve stress in general, feel happier, and have more clarity to deal with the issues on your plate. Meditation is one of the best possible ways to deal with a variety of issues. Try meditation before you try medication!

 

Wear Aromatherapy Jewelry

Essential oils and aromatherapy are an effective way to feel better. You can use a diffuser in your home to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, but what about when you’re not at home? Enter: aromatherapy jewelry. You can now wear your aromatherapy on your wrist or around your neck so that you can enjoy the benefits of your favorite oils wherever you go.

Spend Time With Animals

Spending time with animals is a great way to feel better. If you have your own pet, that’s great; spend some time petting them and playing with them and you should find your life feels brighter pretty soon. However, you don’t even have to have your own pets. You can learn more about emotional support animals and get an idea of what they do for people.

 

Use A Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp

Having a pink Himalayan salt lamp in every room might seem excessive, but it’s a great way to give each room a relaxing glow and relieve stress thanks to the benefits of the lamp. The lamp creates a healthier atmosphere wherever it is placed, and lifts moods almost instantly.

 

Scream Into A Pillow

Maybe what you really need to do is let all of the stress out. Grab a pillow and scream as much as you like into it (so you don’t alert the neighbors). Punch it and kick it a bit too – go for it! If you don’t want to do it at home, you could always find a nice secluded spot and scream there instead.

 

Break Some Plates

There are places you can actually visit now to throw plates. Imagine how good that will feel when you’re stressed out! Throw as many as you like and get all of that stress out before you leave.

 

What do you think of these unusual ways to relieve stress? Are there any that jump out at you that you want to immediately try? Leave your thoughts below!

3 Tips for Choosing the Right tires for Your Car

By Guest Blogger, Neil W.

3 Tips for Choosing the Right tires for Your Car

Tires weren’t always designed the way they are today. The first models were made of iron bands attached to the wooden wheels. They were used for carts and wagons. The first use of rubber was recorded in the mid 19th century. Still, these were also very simple types of tires where all the load was placed on the rubber.

The first pneumatic tire appeared in 1845. The design patented by R.W. Thomson used air to absorb the shocks of the road. But this type of tire was only the beginning to invent the one we use today. While improving a bike, John Boyd Dunlop created the improved version of a pneumatic tire. That was I  1888 and was noticed only because the rider of the bike won the race.

Andre and Édouard Michelin were the first to use a pneumatic tire on a car in 1895. This is considered the beginning of the global use of pneumatic tires. Countries all around the world issued regulations requiring that all manufacturers start using pneumatic tires in production. 

From then on, tires were only improved to reduce the fuel consumption, handling different types of road and carry an appropriate load. In order to take good care of your car, you have to know your tires. Since we are not all car savvy, here are some easy tips for choosing the right ones.

1.    Let us look at the basics

Tires are rubber containers filled with compressed air. They take the load of the car upon themselves, but also they have to handle the road conditions. Observe them as cushions which reduce the impact of the ride on the vehicle.

Nowadays, tires have from 19 to 25 components. The core of every tire is an inner liner since it holds the air inside and so gives the tire its round shape. Steel belts are used for stability and to flatten the treated pattern as much as possible. 

A sidewall is located, as the name says, on the side. It defines the ride characteristics. For example, the softer sidewall can take a harder impact like bumps, while stiffer provides sharper steering.

Also, every sidewall on every tire has an alphanumeric code. These are dimensions of the tire. Most start with the letter “P” unless you drive a light truck where they start with “LT”. This code will help you choose the right tire for your vehicle, however that may not be the only helpful factor. 

2.    Learn to read the code

As we mentioned, every tire has a code on its sidewall which contains information you can use to choose the right one. Correct tire size is a very common mistake, but it’s also an easily solvable one.

So let’s break down the code so you can understand what every letter and number stands for. The code starts with the letter “P”, which signifies the type of tire. Its followed by the three-digit number like 195, for example. This is the tire’s width across the thread and is shown in millimeters.

After the symbol “/”, follows another number which signifies aspect ratio of the sidewall. Right next to this number is the letter “R” for radial construction and a number which stands for a diameter of the rim. After a blank space comes the number which shows tire’s load rating and a letter signifying the speed rating. If there is M+S at the end of the code, this means that the tire is suitable for all-season driving.

3.     How to avoid mistakes

Even though having this code means that you can simply go to the store and buy a tire, unfortunately, some mistakes still happen. Consulting a car repair center is always the best choice if you’re unsure how to buy the right ones.

For example, you have to pay attention not to choose the lower-load tire. This is especially important when you are buying a spare tire. Traction is another aspect you need to pay attention to. Choosing a tire inappropriate for the road you’ll be driving on is actually a very common mistake. Every season requires a certain type of tires, as well as certain terrains like mountain, dirt or wet roads. 

The cost of the tire differs depending on the vehicle. SUV requires different ones than the passenger vehicle. However, it’s very commonly noticed that SUV owners choose tires intended for the lighter cars because they’re cheaper. This is not only damaging to the car but also dangerous for the passengers.

So make sure that you use tires appropriate for your vehicle type, road conditions and season to avoid accidents and avoidable repairs.   

Finally

This may be a lot to remember since people handle numbers on daily basis. Passwords, PINs, security codes and all other figures can be a little too much to handle. But, now that you know that the code to buy the right tire is right on its sidewall, you can remember fewer symbols. Alternatively, you can always go to professionals for help and have one less worry on your mind.

Reconnect And Recover Your Relationship

Reconnect And Recover Your Relationship

https://www.pexels.com/photo/man-carrying-woman-standing-on-the-ground-and-surrounded-by-grass-853406/

 

Do you feel like your relationship has taken a turn for the worst? Do you feel like you simply don’t connect as much anymore? There often comes a stage whereby couples feel distant and like their powerful connection has fizzled out. While this is cause for concern, it does not mean that your relationship is coming to an end. It simply means that you need to look for ways to reconnect with one and other. Read on to discover some suggestions.

Have a daily check-in ritual – The first thing you should do to boost your relationship is institute a daily check-in. This is something that a lot of marriage experts advise. When you both get in from work, make an effort to start off by appreciating something about the other person. You should then offer some new information about your day, and ask them something about themselves too to keep the conversation flowing. You can then end the conversation with a hope. This could be big, such as retiring within the next ten years, or it could be small, such as seeing a movie this week. Simply talking more can have a much bigger impact than you may expect.

Take up yoga – A great way to reconnect with your partner is to do yoga. There are yoga poses for couples specifically, which help you to connect in mind, body, and soul. You may even want to consider one of the yoga retreats that are available, allowing you to explore one of the most magical parts of the world. Is there any better way to reconnect than this? Yoga can help your relationship in many ways. Not only will it bring you closer together, but also it reduces stress and anxiety, increases trust and communication, improves intimacy, and increases overall relationship satisfaction too.

Create a couple’s ritual – If yoga is not something that appeals to you, then you need to find something else that can be your couple’s ritual. This can be anything that is going to bond you. For example, you could decide to make every Saturday night a date night. Other options include having a morning coffee together every day or making sure you have ten minutes to chat to one and other before bed. It has to be something that you will both enjoy and something that you will stick to. A date night every Saturday may be difficult for some couples, so don’t agree to this if you know someone is going to let the arrangement down, as that will only make matters worse.

Try the suggestions that have been mentioned above and see whether this helps you to rebuild your relationship and connect with your partner on a deeper level again. You may be surprised by just how much of a difference this makes. From yoga to simply chatting more, these are not changes that are difficult to implement, so why not get started today?

Ways to Enhance Your Concentration

Ways to Enhance Your Concentration

 

You have a deadline and you really need to work, but the busy Sydney streets are screaming at you from outside your window, you can’t get that scene from your favorite TV show out of your head and then, just when you clear your mind and finally focus on your assignment, somebody comes in with a question. There goes your concentration, leaving you frustrated and in panic. But, is there a way to enhance your concentration? Yes, there is. Here are some ways to do it.

Be rested

If you don’t get enough sleep, or if your sleep isn’t calming and restful, your thoughts can become scattered and focusing on anything might prove to be next to impossible. Establish a quality sleeping routine, which will include going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, sleeping on a comfortable bed and in a place that you find relaxing. If you don’t sleep enough during the night, try having at least a short nap during the day, in order to energize and concentrate more easily.

Eat well

Never skip meals, especially breakfast, since hunger can be your concentration’s greatest enemy. Your meals should be a healthy balance between proteins and carbohydrates, loaded with nutrients. Your body needs vitamins and minerals to maximize brain function, as well as water to remain hydrated, since dehydration can lower your concentration. However, overeating can cause discomfort and drowsiness, so avoid eating too much.

Take breaks

Trying to stay focused on one thing for a long time can be tiring and can even make you nervous. After a while, your brain’s processing abilities will decline, and your concentration along with it. Therefore, make a schedule for each task or each working day, one which will include several breaks. Taking an hourly short break can help you get your focus back and make you feel refreshed and alert. Use these breaks to have a healthy snack, take a nap or phone your friend for a quick chat.

Listen to music

Other than making you feel relaxed and boosting your mood, music can also improve your concentration. Certain types of music affect the parts of the brain related to paying attention and memory update, while others calm you down and help with anxiety. Find the music that makes you productive and helps you concentrate, invest in the best noise-cancelling headphones Sydney can offer and get back to work.

Exercise your body and mind

Physical exercise can get you into shape and improve your overall health, including your mind. If you’re unhealthy and physically inactive, you mood worsens and you feel worn down, which can make it very hard to focus. A daily workout can help you concentrate since it improves your circulation, and blood flow to the brain. It can be something as simple as a walk on the beach or a bicycle ride to and from work. And if physical exercise isn’t enough, you can also exercise your mind. Read a good book, do some crossword puzzles or Sudoku, or have a stimulating conversation during your lunch break to improve memory and concentration.

Remove distractions

Sometimes the loss of concentration is caused by outside factors, such as noise from the traffic outside or your colleagues’ squeaky voice and laughter. If you have your own office, closing the window or the door might be all it takes to regain your peace and quiet and avoid distractions. If not, try isolating yourself in another way, like using earplugs. Log out of your social networks accounts and turn your phone to silent mode if possible. However, if you need your phone and the social networks for work, you need to learn to ignore these specific distractions, disregard them and stay focused on your task.

Avoid multitasking

Jumping to a new project without finishing the previous one can be confusing and lead your brain to think it’s OK to switch focus from one topic to another, which in return can lower your concentration. If you start doing several things at the same time, you’ll be giving each of those things only partial attention, which can cause you to achieve less and make mistakes you wouldn’t make if you were completely focused on a single task. In order to improve your concentration, stick to a task until you finish it, and then make a short mental break before starting the next one.

Although it takes effort and time to concentrate properly, it’s not an impossible task. All it sometimes takes is to challenge your brain to stay focused on a single task for just a bit longer than the previous time. So, do what you can to stay healthy and sharp and your problem might just disappear.

Mood Swings and Your Health

By Tia Cristy

Mood Swings and Your Health

Sometimes we all get grumpy, sad, mad, depressed, etc., but when is it time to get concerned about your mood swings? Are you quick to get angry? Do you have instant irritation when driving anytime you get behind the wheel? Maybe you’re dealing with intense anxiety? Are you sad in moments of quietness? Do you feel lonely all the time? Do you get really high highs and then get pummeled by the lowest of lows? What about feeling indifferent about everything?

Recognize Your Moods

Admitting to yourself when you are actually feeling some sense of negativity will help you recognize how frequently its happening. High-stress in the work place or home can cause moods to fluctuate, but we must take control of our mental health before it can snowball into a large issue. Once you become aware of the frequency of your bad mood, then you’ll be able to tackle what is causing your mood.

Pinpoint Your Stressor

Nobody enjoys traffic, but guess what, we’ve all dealt with it at one point or another, but most folks don’t allow their blood pressure to increase to dangerous levels. Let’s be honest, getting angry to the point of seeing red over anything isn’t acceptable. It’s best to try to pinpoint what is causing the stress so you can cure the problem, not just treat the symptom. Are you stressed at work? How’s the home life? Is money the root to all your stress? Do you feel pushed to your max? Do you feel underappreciated? It all happens at one point or another because we are human. But here’s what you need to do when it does happen… change your mindset. The saying I like the best is… ‘Fake it till you make it’. Remember to tell yourself, and others, life is good. Soon you will begin to believe everything is great. When anger or sadness comes on quickly, quickly change your sights to the beautiful day or maybe give yourself some self-appreciation.

Mental Health Checkups

Staying on top of your mental health is so important. Do you know that stress can fire-off inappropriate neurotransmitters in the brain, which releases chemicals preparing you face a lion, instead of your Tuesday morning meeting? Sadly, this reaction results in misfires in the brain. These misfires can cause damage if not stopped. So, what stops misfires? The simple answer… handling stress before you stress. But here’s a few things that can help.

  • Talking to an online professional at Better Help is a great way to work on your mental health and release stress.
  • Start a daily exercise routine to expel the pinned up emotions.
  • Learning meditation is an amazing way to keep your mind healthy, as well as your body.
  • Getting more essential amino acids in your diet though food or supplements can change and reverse negative brain function.
  • Make sure you are getting your B vitamins—Especially for those that are gluten-free or on another specialty diet. (Remember to always consult your primary physician before starting any supplements and vitamins.) B Vitamins are powerful food for the brain!

Overall Health Can Cause Mood Swings

So you’ve tried meditation, started eating cleaner and found yourself a great therapist, but the moods haven’t improved. It’s time to talk to your doctor. Moods can certainly be a symptom of something else going on in your body. It doesn’t always mean it’s something serious since it’s known that seasonal allergies can actually cause mood swings, but it’s best to find out what could possibly be the culprit behind your mental disruptions. If your or anyone you know is dealing with depression or mental health issues, it’s important to know that you are not alone. There is help. Reach out to a family member, friend, colleague or talk to a professional, please.

Essential Advice For Life After Divorce

Essential Advice For Life After Divorce

Picture via pixabay

 

When you are going through a divorce, it can be hard to imagine what life will be like afterward. And while everyone knows that time is the greatest healer, the reality is that it can often seem like things will never get better. However, by following a few simple guidelines, it’s possible to cope with the stresses, pressures, and emotional turmoil’s that come with separation. Here is some essential advice on how to keep your head up and make it through the post-divorce landscape in the best possible way.

 

Accept the divorce

 

First of all, make sure you do all you can to terminate the marriage the right way. As discussed over at https://www.grahamhurdlaw.com/, you need the best solutions to this incredibly hard problem, and although it can be tough, try and see your divorce as a watershed moment. If you want to alleviate the pain and frustration of separating from a former loved one, you need to work hard, be honest, and accept the legal outcomes.

 

Keep a journal

 

Emotions are difficult to manage, and keeping things bottled up inside can lead to incredible psychological damage. And the reality of divorce is that you may not want to discuss particular issues with anyone else, even though they are eating you up from the inside. As http://womens-journal.com/ points out, one of the best ways of dealing with this is to keep a journal. Write down your emotional worries, and let those feelings out. Not only will it give you a release, it will also help you stop becoming dependent on others.

 

Get a shoulder to lean on

 

However, journaling your divorce experience will only go so far. The truth is that you need someone who can listen to you, share your feelings, and understand how your life is being affected. Find a friend that can listen and give you good advice. It should be someone you trust implicitly, and know that has your best interests at heart. It should also be someone who you know is unafraid to tell you how things really are and won’t shy away from letting you know if your actions are doing you harm.

 

Get busy

 

As your old life ends, it’s time to embrace a new one. And given that your marriage is likely to have been problematic for some time, it’s the perfect opportunity to focus on yourself. It could be through investing more of your time into your professional life. Maybe you want to start that hobby you always wanted to try. Or perhaps you just want to broaden your horizons, and take advantage of being single and free.

 

Be sociable

 

One of the big problems with divorce and relationship failures is that you will often find yourself avoiding social situations. While this is an understandable reaction, it’s important to fight these feelings and get up and get yourself out there. You could join a divorce support group if you are struggling, or hook up with old friends you haven’t seen for years. Ultimately, the sooner you start being sociable, the faster you will be able to get over the divorce. Good luck!

Why Being Single Can Be Great

By Guest Blogger, Cathy W.

Why Being Single Can Be Great

Did you go through a rough breakup recently? Maybe you just haven’t met someone, yet. Either way, you’ll be happy to know this isn’t the end.

As a matter of fact, being single can help you become motivated to do things. It can be an extremely enjoyable experience, once you realize all of the fun you can have without a partner there to get in your way. When you’re feeling lonely and down about not being in a relationship, here are a few thoughts you should keep in mind.

Attaining Full Access to Virtually Anything

One of the best aspects of being single is the fact that you get full and total access to the sources of your happiness. Maybe it’s a new episode of your favorite show on television. It comes on every week, and you simply can’t bear to miss it.

As a single person, you won’t have to worry about your partner stealing the remote from you and turning on his own show. After all, you’d probably waited all week long for the episode to air. The last thing you want is to end up missing it altogether.

How about that huge container of ice cream that’s in your freezer? It’s all yours, and you don’t have to share it with anyone. That means it’ll last you for a lot longer, and you’ll even be able to save some money, too.

Discovering Peace and Quiet

If you’re generally a quiet person, being single may suit you exceptionally well. Maybe you don’t mind the extra noise so much, but the constant nagging can certainly get old after a while. It can make you truly long for some peace and quiet.

Not being in a relationship will give you the opportunity to perform activities that require a quiet atmosphere. Meditation is one example. You can meditate in any room at any time of the day without having to worry about being interrupted.

If you’re used to always having someone there with you, this can be like a breath of fresh air. The single life will give you the peace and quiet you desperately crave. What could be better than that?

Moving at Your Own Pace

Another nice aspect about not being in a relationship with someone is that you get to move at your own speed. If you need extra time to get ready before you go out, for instance, you’ve got it. You won’t need to deal with a cranky, impatient partner getting upset with you or rushing you along to finish by a certain time.

Also, you get to decide where you want to go. You won’t have to put up with all those complaints and arguments. No matter how you look at it, it’s a win-win for you each and every time.

Freedom to be Yourself

Being single means you can do whatever you want without the fear of being caught doing it by someone else. Singing in the shower is something you’ve always enjoyed doing, but you’ve become a bit self-conscious about it ever since your partner’s moved in with you. As a single man or woman, you can feel free to sing to your heart’s content without having to worry that you’re being judged for it.

Do you like to dance? Whether you prefer upbeat or slow music, you can dance around inside of your home for as long as you want. The best part about it is that no one will see you doing it.

As you can see, being in a relationship isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. In fact, being single can truly be a blessing in disguise. Who knew that going solo could actually be so much fun?

Four Ways To Fire Up Your Love Life

Four Ways To Fire Up Your Love Life

Whether you’ve been in a marriage for a long time and want to give your love life a boost, or you simply want to revamp the way that you’ve always done things, your libido needs a bit of help. With work being so busy, raising a family and having an actual social life, there’s always an excuse not to reconnect with a lover behind bedroom doors. There are so many things that you can do to boost your libido so that you can get your sex life back on the right tracks that it’s always been on.

Image Source

Exhaustion, stress and a lack of time can really affect the sex life of a couple, but sex is such an important way to connect on a level that is more than friends and more than just partners. It’s a mind, body and soul connection and when you’re too tired, it’s like someone has hung up the phone and the line is broken. Getting that line back up takes time and a loss of sex drive is only a problem if you believe that it is. Don’t panic though; there are plenty of things that you can do to boost it back up and get those bedroom fires burning again.

Sleep. This may seem like a counterproductive way to get your sex life back but burning the candle at both ends can really take a toll on your sex life. Testosterone has a big role in the male libido and a lack of sleep can reduce the levels of testosterone in you. Extracts like Tongkat Ali can help you to get your testosterone levels back up again. Try not to sleep less than 5 hours a night, regardless, as this is not healthy!

Eat. Everyone knows the sensuality in bringing food into the bedroom, but did you know that there are certain foods that are an aphrodisiac? Figs, bananas, chocolate and avocados are such aphrodisiacs, as are oysters and wine. These all provide the right minerals and vitamins for your health.

Confidence. Sometimes, confidence – or lack of it – is a big passion killer. If you don’t have confidence within yourself, you won’t feel in the mood and you can doubt your own attraction. No one can tell you how you can get rid of the low self-esteem, but you can shift the focus from your own worries to the things that you like about yourself and blow those up in your mind.

Sobriety. A big reason for a flop in the bedroom is too much alcohol or the overuse of drugs. By going sober, you can remove the toxins and chemicals from your system and be the au natural being that you want to be!

Getting the fire back in the bedroom is going to take some time, but if you take a moment to work out what is going wrong and communicate with your partner, you can move forward and slide back into that healthy sex routine you’ve always enjoyed.

What You Should Know About Dementia

by Guest Blogger, Diana S.

What You Should Know About Dementia

 

Dementia is not an illness that happens overnight; it is actually a collection of various symptoms, possibly due to a disease.  It is a dreadful and often feared condition that can be hard to deal with, especially for those around the patient.

If you have someone who’s struggling with dementia or you worry if you could end up suffering from it, here are a few things you should know:

The early signs of dementia

Most frequently, if you experience greater loss of memory and focus, or even gradually start failing to communicate in a clear and understandable way, chances are you are experiencing dementia in its early stages. Unfortunately, we still can’t be sure what all early signs of dementia could be as they don’t tend to manifest immediately. This makes diagnosing dementia all the harder, but not impossible. Nevertheless, look out for losses in function and focus, and contact your physician if you experience something similar. However, if you are the one experiencing dementia, chances are you won’t be aware of the symptoms; this is why it’s important you listen to the people around you pointing out the changes in your usual behavior.

Alzheimer’s disease

Perhaps the most commonly known form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. In essence, Alzheimer’s is an irreversible brain disorder that slowly erases your memories and your ability to think and remember clearly. Over time, even the simplest of tasks become a burden and impossible for those having Alzheimer’s. Without relying on everyday help, patients grow unable to function properly.

Treating dementia

Unfortunately, a definitive cure for dementia does not exist yet, and it is only possible to slow down the progress to a certain degree. Some of the medicine that can be used is there to prevent further regression of memory, but only in combination with certain mental exercises that help boost brain functions and promote better memory.

Look for help

After a while, dementia can take its toll and make it extremely hard to do things on your own. Losing your memory and having to see everyone around you fade into black is not easy to deal with. Unless the early stages of dementia are recognized and there is someone to help you out, it can become a battle that cannot be fought alone. The great thing is that there are services ready to help take care of you/your loved one. Choosing the right aged care facilities for someone with dementia can be a cinch if you find out that the staff is highly trained and professional. Creating an environment for those with dementia is a must, so that no matter what happens, they are surrounded by people they can rely on.

Alternative medicine

Currently, no drug can effectively reverse the effects of dementia, and without doing a bit of work on your own as well, you cannot expect to get better. The best alternative method to help deal with and fight dementia is to do daily problem-solving tasks, puzzles, memory games, and various language boosting activities. Engage in a game of chess regularly, pick up a foreign language, help your kids/grandkids with math problems, be in charge of paying the bills, etc. These are meant to boost brain functions and help keep the memory intact, all the while reducing the effects of dementia.

Unfortunately, dementia cannot be stopped, yet, the effects can be slowed down to a degree so that you can live your life comfortably. With communities built for those suffering from dementia and your personal engagement in slowing it down, things don’t have to be too hard.
