Dieting Dos and Don’ts

Dieting Dos and Don’ts

diet-861173_960_720Image Source

For those wanting to shed the pounds, there’s an array of dieting methods out there. You don’t have to diet one particular way, however there are some dieting dos and don’ts that could help you to stay on track with whatever method you do choose.

Don’t starve yourself

Any dieting method that tells you to starve yourself to lose weight should be avoided. Whilst you should lower your calorie intake, cutting out food altogether could cause more harm that it does good. Starving yourself causes your body to go into survival mode, shutting down functions to other organs and processes that aren’t as important. Your body also limits the amount of energy you spend to keep other functions going, making you lose weight slower as burning off fat is not top of priorities.

Do cut out processed foods

The less processes food has to go through, the healthier it is for you. This means swapping sugary sweets for fruit and white bread for natural carbs such as potatoes. Try to rely less on microwave meals and foods straight out the packet and try making your own meals from raw ingredients.

Don’t rely solely on pills

There are lots of weight loss pills out there, but these should never be used by themselves. If you’re taking weight loss pills and still eating unhealthily as well as not exercising, you’re not going to make any progress.

Do consider supplements

That said, there’s nothing to stop you taking supplements on top of dieting and exercise to help lose a few more pounds. As you can see here, such supplements have a proven track record and have to pass testing and regulations in order to be allowed on the market. You can find all kinds of supplements online and at your local pharmacy.

Don’t think short term

Weight loss should never be a short term goal. You may well lose your target weight, but are likely to slip back into your old ways straight away and piles on the pounds again. Consider lifestyle changes that you can permanently adopt to ensure that you stay healthy. You may be able to drop a few rules once you’ve reached your target weight, but don’t expect to just take up you old lifestyle once you’ve got slim.

Do treat yourself

Getting rid of all those tasty comfort foods you once adored is hard. Cutting them all out permanently takes a lot of willpower – you’re likely to get demotivated very quickly. Instead use these foods as incentives and rewards. If you manage to go your whole week sticking religiously to your diet, reward yourself with a food you once loved for one day only.  However, if you break your diet and indulge on this treat when you’re not supposed to, punish yourself by not allowing yourself to eat a treat at the end of that week. This will spur you on to not abandon hope.

Tips on How to Fight the Plights of Old Age

Tips on How to Fight the Plights of Old Age

If you don’t want to ‘grow old gracefully’, and you want to fight the impact ageing has on you, then you have every right to do so. If you want to fight the plights induced by old age, then you do so. Whether this means doing all you can to fight the appearance of ageing. Or whether it means doing all you can to fight the ailments of ageing. You do it. And if you choose to do it, make sure to check out some tips on how to do so below.

First of all you should know that you can be as beautiful as you are wise when you grow old, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing this. You can fight the impact ageing has on your skin in the form of wrinkles, and there are now more ways to do this than ever before. You can do so by making changes to your lifestyle. And one change you can make is to simply ensure that you always get a healthy amount of sleep, and that you always sleep on your back. This is because sleeping on your front or your side can etch lines into your face, and when these lines get etched in enough they will be tough to get rid of. Another change you can make to your lifestyle in order to fight the plight of wrinkles is to stop smoking. But you don’t just have to make changes to your lifestyle as you take this venture. No, you could seek a BOTOX injection in order to fight wrinkles too. Whichever route you choose, just be sure that there is nothing wrong in wanting to tackle wrinkles and there’s nothing wrong with actively tackling them. They are one of the biggest tell-tale signs of ageing, so there is nothing wrong with them being the first plight of old age that you seek to fight.

But it’s not just about fight the appearance of ageing. It’s also about fighting the plights of old age that physically hold you back from living. And one thing that can hold you back during your twilight years is bad eye health. Ageing can have a detrimental impact on eyesight, and you shouldn’t allow for your eyesight to be changed in this way. A way to do this is to make changes to your diet. By opting for cereals that are ravished in whole grain. By choosing foods that are a good source of protein. And by cooking in a way that makes any fats you consume as healthy as can be. By implementing these three aspects into your diet, you will be doing all you can to fight the plight of old age that is bad eye health.

Now, this is not to say that you have to fight these plights of old age. It’s just to say that you should fight them if they ever make you feel uncomfortable. Neither is it a case of ‘growing old disgracefully’. It’s a case of wanting to look and feel as great as you can, for as long as you can.

Hiking Tips for Beginners

By  Guest Blogger Scott M.

Hiking Tips for Beginners

Introduction

The fresh air, the cool breeze during a hot summer day, and a shady spot to watch the sun´s shadows dance in the valley below you: this is what most of us dream about when we imagine a day of hiking through Nature. However, without the right preparation, your hiking trip might be better defined by swollen knees, clouds of mosquitoes, and soggy hiking boots.

For those people who are new to the world of hiking, it is important to understand that enjoying a quality hike takes much more preparation than simply lacing up the old hiking boots and driving to the nearest trailhead. Below you´ll find four simple tips to help you find ways to motivate yourself to get into the wilderness and enjoy a perfect hike.

Why Should You Hike?

Everyone knows that our bodies need exercise. The sedentary lives that we live have led to several dangerous health conditions ranging from obesity to diabetes. Hiking offers an opportunity not only to exercise, but also to enjoy moments of physical exertion. Recent evidence has shown that people find exercise while being in Nature as more enjoyable and less physically draining.

In addition, taking regular hikes offers an opportunity to reduce your stress levels and improve your overall mental health. When you go to the gym for a quick workout, chances are that you´re carrying a load of problems with you as you simply try to make it to your goal on the treadmill. When you´re hiking through the woods, however, it´s much easier to allow your problems to temporarily disappear as you regain perspective of the most important things of life.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, hiking allows us to regain contact with the natural world of which we are a part. In our industrial and consumer culture, meaningful contact with Nature has become a rarity at best. Our lives are lived within the confines of manufactured housing, cement streets, and air conditioned offices. Escaping from these man-made environments for a short hike into the wilderness allows us to rediscover our ultimate belonging to the natural world which holds us.

Four Tips to Motivate You to Get Off the Couch and Into the Wild

If you are ready to start enjoying the benefits of hiking, it is important to plan ahead. One disastrous hiking trip can turn you off to hiking for years to come. Just as you wouldn’t try to scale Everest on your first outdoors trip, so should you also take the necessary time to ease yourself into the world of hiking so that it becomes an enjoyable, lifelong pursuit.

Start Slow

This first bit of advice, should be common sense. If you aren´t a proficient hiker, don’t try to complete a 20 mile day hike on your first go. Even for people who are in fairly decent shape, a 3 to 4 mile round trip hike will make you feel the physical exertion. Also, be sure to trust the trail ratings that describe a particular hike. If the hike is listed as strenuous, you might want to opt for a shorter “moderate” hike or a slightly longer hike that has been rated as “easy.”

Find a Place that You´ll Love

https://www.pexels.com/photo/person-wearing-a-blue-and-white-jacket-and-brown-backpack-standing-on-mountains-62485/

If you hate the heat and the burning sun, your first hike probably shouldn’t be in Death Valley National Park. Similarly, if you dislike the wind and cold, you should probably avoid trying to hike to some bald knob or mountain top. Think about what type of natural environment you most enjoy, and search for a hike that will take you through that natural setting. This will make your initial experience with hiking enjoyable and gratifying.

Couple Hiking with Some Other Activity You Love

One of the best parts of hiking is that you can combine a hike with some other activity that you enjoy. If, for example, you enjoy photography, there is no better place to practice your photography skills than while hiking through some beautiful, natural area. If you enjoy writing poetry, take a pen and paper along with you in your backpack and hike until you find the perfect spot to give you the inspiration you need.

Don´t Go Alone

While the ability to find deep peace and solace while hiking alone through the woods is definitely one of the privileges of hiking, you should probably invite other people along during your first couple of hikes. Having other people near you can help to alleviate some of the potential drawbacks and difficulties that a hiking trip might unexpectedly bring. Save the solo trips for when you feel more comfortable and proficient with hiking.

The Transformation that Hiking Will Bring into Your Life

https://www.pexels.com/photo/rear-view-of-a-man-standing-in-snow-250164/

After a couple positive hiking trips, you most likely will begin to feel healthier, more relaxed, and more centered on the important things in life. You will also find that every weekend you´ll be searching for new places to explore and discover.

5 Things That Shouldn’t Stand in the Way of You Staying Healthy

5 Things That Shouldn’t Stand in the Way of You Staying Healthy

When you’re trying to stay healthy or improve your fitness, there are always obstacles in the way trying to trip you up. That’s just the way it is. But it’s up to you to overcome these problems and do your very best to go further and achieve more with your health and fitness. It might not be easy, but it can be done. Here are 5 things that you shouldn’t let stand in your way as you try to stay healthy.

  1. Lack of Motivation

Motivation is key when it comes to staying active and making the right diet choices. If you are not motivated throughout the journey, you will eventually give up and go back to your bad ways. That’s not what you want to happen, and it’s that kind of action that could damage you in the long-term. So, find a source of motivation. This can change when necessary, but make sure there is always something driving you forward. That way, you’ll stay on the right path.

  1. Bad Excuses

We’ve all made bad excuses for our failings and shortcomings before. It’s not something to be proud of, but we’ve all been guilty of it at one time or another. When we don’t want to do something, it’s very easy to rationalize this and find excuses that sort of fit. But that kind of action is not going to get you anywhere. Instead, you need to be more honest with yourself and stop coming up with ways to excuse your shortcomings.

tape-403586_960_720Image Source

  1. Food Temptations

Food, and particularly unhealthy food, is always a temptation. We need food to survive, but we don’t need to fill up on unhealthy food that has a negative effect on our health. You can buy Isagenix weight loss programs if you’re having trouble eating the right kind of foods. If there are foods that you know that you are particularly tempted by, simply don’t allow them in your house. If you do that, you won’t be able to eat them.

  1. Work

For most people, work is the thing that takes up the bulk of their time. And that means that it is often the thing that stops them cooking healthy food or going for a job. That’s why you need to find new ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. You could choose to walk up the stairs more often rather than taking the elevator. Or you could prepare your own lunch rather than relying on fast food outlets. All of these things make a difference.

stairs-man-person-walkingImage Source

  1. The People Around You

Finally, you should think about the people around you. Are you going to let other people’s habits lead and influence your own? That shouldn’t happen. Just because other people are eating in a different way and have different lifestyles, that doesn’t mean that you have to follow their example. Never use other people as an excuse to let your own health and fitness slide. You will only regret it later if you allow this to happen.

How To Care For Your Body The Right Way

How To Care For Your Body The Right Way

Healthy Yoga Travel Exercise Meditation Sunrise

Caring for your body should be a priority over all. If you’re not sure what this entails, here’s a simple guide to follow.

Nutrition

Nutrition varies a lot now because what may work perfectly for one person, may not work at all for another. So finding your own healthy diet may take a little time, but it’ll be worth it.

The simple way to start is to cut down on your sugar intake, as well as your fatty substances. Eat plenty of fruit and veg, and a whole variety of different foods. As long as you control the amount of food you eat and keep everything in moderation, you don’t have to completely wipe out the naughty snacks. – Just eat less of them.

Keeping a good nutrition isn’t about losing weight at all, it’s just about being healthy. Giving your body all the right sources, so it can fulfil the jobs it has to do.

Hydration

If you’re not drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, then you are most likely dehydrated without even knowing it. Try adding an extra glass on top of what you already drink. You’d be amazed at how just one glass can give you a whole boost of energy to last you throughout the day.

Appointments

Keep up with regular health checks, don’t put them off, they’re there to make sure everything is working how it should. So if your vision has decreased recently, find yourself a optometrist. If you’ve had a toothache, go and see your dentist.

It’s so simple but many people view it as a hassle, but it’s not a waste of your time. Even if you feel okay; you may have an underlying problem which will cause more grief in the future if it goes unnoticed.

Sleep

Everyone knows sleep is important, but for some reason it tends to get overlooked. People like to get things done, so think that losing a couple hours of sleep is worth it. But Doctors recommend having an average of 8 hours sleep every night. So if you’re only getting 4 or 5, there may be a problem.

Look at ways how you can add on some precious sleep, whether that be not having dinner so late, or not staying up to watch the end of your programme. Instead, record it or watch it on repeat another day, and prepare your food in advance, so it doesn’t end up getting so late.

Lack of sleep not only takes its toll on our bodies but our minds too. It can affect your concentration, mood and memory. It even reduces your ability to fight off infections!

So clock in the hours and enjoy it.

Mental Health

Having a healthy mentality is just as important as having a healthy body, so never think you can just push your emotions aside. If your mind isn’t happy, nothing else will be, so if you’re feeling particularly low – get it sorted. Speak to your Doctor, friend or family member about how you’re feeling. You should never feel as if you’re going through hard times alone, because you’re not, and you never have to.

Do You Enjoy A Drink? Be Careful

Do You Enjoy A Drink? Be Careful

Life certainly does blaze past us at rocket pace. This is a huge factor on our stress levels as, frankly, not many human beings can keep up with what is being asked of us. This pace of life reflects on everything – especially our business and personal lives. We have to do so much! Was it ever like this before? The hustle and bustle of modern life can take its toll, but fortunately, through hobbies and other means – like entertainment, we have plenty of escapes on offer to take up. It is good for the mind that we get away for a little bit.

However, some of the escapes from the stresses and frenetic pace of life can be dangerous – not at first (although some more nefarious and illegal ‘escapes’ can be), but they can certainly take their toll over time. Alcohol is one of these escapes which if not managed can cause damage. Addictive substances, and not just alcohol, but others like nicotine cigarettes and junk food need to always be consumed responsibly and not with reckless abandon. Addictive substances are dangerous for a number of reasons – they can cause a physical and emotional addiction, they can waste your money and if the addiction continues it can ruin your life.

liquor-429428_960_720(source)

Alcohol addiction is especially dangerous as it is a widely available substance. Alcohol is in a lot of products, from medicine to liquor and beers. It’s barely regulated, and you only need to be over a certain age to acquire it. Restaurants, stores, and bars sell it equally, and it can be quite cheap. This means that any consumption of alcoholic substances needs to be performed responsibly and mindfully, due to its availability and price, it can be all too easy to push yourself one step further and that can create a heavy dependence on the alcohol. The effects of alcohol addiction can be painful, and even when you are on the right path, the effects of alcohol withdrawal can be visible and rather traumatic. This means it can be easy to fall off the wagon and return to alcohol.

whisky-1872370_960_720(source)

Most of the human race enjoys a drink now and then, the key to survival amongst this is to know when enough is enough. If after one drink, you feel like you’ve had enough, then you need to quit while you are ahead. This can be easier said than done, but at least thinking about what you are consuming can help you in the long run. Alcohol can make us happy; it is when we focus on that that we develop addictions. We want alcohol to give us that ‘buzz,’ but as our tolerance towards it builds – that buzz is harder to find. This is addiction. We need to think about our external situations before consuming alcohol. Are we relying on it? If we are relying on it, we need to seek help. There are a variety of sources we can choose to help us on our path away from reliance on alcohol, but all the work has to come from you.

Watch Out For The Signs That Show You Need To See A Dentist

Watch Out For The Signs That Show You Need To See A Dentist

Looking after your teeth is vital to your health, dental and for other areas of your body. But there is alarming statistics about dental health and hygiene that suggest the majority of us don’t visit our dentists enough.

Despite the fact many of us have white teeth that appear to be in rude health, many of us have serious underlying problems. So, if you experience any of these issues on a regular basis, you should really make an appointment with your local dentist.

The sooner you book a visit, the better, too – you can nip most of the major dental issues in the bud at an early stage and have a better chance of recovery.

Here are some danger signs that you really should see your dentist sooner rather than later.

fun-cold-elegance-face-41208Picture Credit

You haven’t been to the dentist for more than a year

In an ideal world, you should attend your local orthodontics center twice a year at a bare minimum. So, if it’s been longer than 12 months since your last visit, it’s time to book that appointment. Some dental problems won’t show up until they are well ingrained, and only a professional eye will be able to spot issues at an early stage.

You suffer from sensitivity issues

Sensitive teeth are something that many people put up with – but failing to visit your dentist for a checkup and diagnosis of your problem could result in a lot of different issues. Some people have naturally sensitive teeth, of course, but it is also important to understand that it can often be a sign of tooth decay. If you experience sensitivity issues that have a particular location, book yourself in for an x-ray – you may need a filling.

You notice white spots on your teeth

Your teeth are protected by a layer of enamel, but this can wear down over time due to plague and other types of dental damage. When it occurs, it creates white spots on your teeth, and it’s vital that you go to your dentist sooner rather than later. Actually, your enamel is dissolving due to a buildup of acidic bacteria, and it won’t stop without the correct treatment.

You develop inflammation in your gums

If you suffer from inflamed gums, get yourself to the dentist, as many different issues can arise. When plaque starts to harden, it causes damage to the gums, and you might be developing a periodontal disease or even something like gingivitis. Further on down the line you might end up with severe tooth decay, and may even have to have entire teeth removed.

Color changes

Do you pay attention to the overall color of your mouth? If not, it’s time to start. Discoloration – as well as unusual lumps and bumps – could be a sign of something serious like oral cancer. Again, it is critical that you don’t move slowly on this, as the earlier you get your diagnosis, the more likely it is you will get a successful treatment.

Looking after your teeth doesn’t take much effort – a simple visit to the dentist twice a year is all, and regular brushing is all you need. So, no more excuses!

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

With your wedding just around the corner, you need to get everything prepared. You’ve found the dress, booked the venue and invited all the guests and now it’s time to take care of wedding beauty. Bridal makeup is just as essential as the rest of the wedding elements and every bride should be perfect on her big day; especially if she wants mesmerizing wedding photos. Thus, here are several tips for your flawless makeup and wedding photos.

Primer is essential

Firstly, by applying it you can have perfect makeup with little products. Secondly, it will help your makeup last throughout the whole wedding. Primer’s purpose is to smoothen your face, no matter how rough it is and it will help the rest of the makeup adhere better and blend in perfectly. Everything looks better with a primer and you will avoid having shiny areas on your face on your wedding photos and you won’t have to rush to the bathroom to fix your makeup every now and then.

Use a concealer

Since planning a wedding takes time and can be stressful, you probably won’t get too much sleep. This will result in dark circles under your eyes that need to go away on your big day. That’s why you should rely on a concealer. However, you should avoid using concealer five shades lighter than the rest of the makeup and your skin tone. Remember, less is more so spread it out evenly and modestly so you don’t end up with white circles under your eyes.

Emphasize your eyes

Don’t forget to make the eye makeup a bit darker, because you need to compensate for the whiteness of your dress and accessories. Also, pay attention to your lashes. Most women have never worn fake eyelashes but on your big day you can try them out. However, you need to be careful and rely on a professional to apply them; otherwise they could be your worst nightmare. You can also use individual eyelashes which can make your lashes more rich and natural. Nevertheless, you should emphasize your eyes, since they can get lost in the photos; but this way you will look beautiful in all of them.

Don’t forget your lips

Since your whole bridal look is rather white and light, you shouldn’t ignore your lips. They will need some colour as well in order to avoid looking too pale. You can opt for your favourite lipsticks or lip glosses in complementary colours, or rely on good old chapstick. If you leave your lips bare and dry, cracks will show up on camera and that could ruin your whole look.

Find a good photographer

To look good in your wedding photos you will also need a good photographer. Depending on your budget, you can hire a professional or ask a friend to take photos and videos. However, rely on friends only if they know what they’re doing and if that’s their passion. Otherwise the photos might not be as satisfying. If you decide to hire a professional, you should even have a trial photo session. Wear your makeup and ask your photographer to snap a few photos so you can see how the makeup looks. Many professionals, like those from Perfect Moment Photography, will gladly have a trial with you in order to make sure you are completely stunning and satisfied.

Have a trial

Pixbay

Before applying the final makeup for your big day, make sure you have a trial with your makeup artist. Give them your ideas and desires and wear a white shirt so you can see how the makeup looks on a white outfit. Trials are essential, because you don’t want any mishaps on your wedding day and so you can know for sure what makeup look is the best for your wedding.

There you have it; the most essential tips for your bridal makeup. Follow these tips and there is no doubt that you will look stunning on your wedding day and in your photos.

Keep Hold Of Your Youth

Keep Hold Of Your Youth

Do you ever feel as though you’re losing your youth and your beauty? Don’t worry, you’re not alone with this worry. A lot of people begin to feel this way, and it can happen sooner than you would believe. For instance, you might just look in the mirror one day and see that there’s a wrinkle there that wasn’t before. When you smile, you no longer see dimples, you see giant crevices in your skin. Suddenly, beauty and youth are no longer things that come naturally to you. Instead, you’ll have to start working for them.

You might have to start combing back your hair to make it seem thicker. You may need to look into those anti-aging creams, and perhaps, it’s time to start thinking about getting some tips from your mom on how she stays looking young.

The good news is that no matter how old you are, how old you feel, there are always options if you want to look younger. To do this, we need to understand and uncover the telltale signs of age. There are quite a few to contend with here but by covering them all, you can make sure you still look like your old young self.

Show Me That Smile?

girl-pose-344322_960_720PIc Link Location

One of the key traits of youth is healthy looking teeth. If you want to know the secrets behind the celebs that don’t seem to age, it’s probably that smile filled with pearly white gnashers. White teeth have a few effects on your looks. First, they bring out your eyes, making them seem more distinguished. Second, they draw attention away from other more troubling features of your face. Finally, they are just naturally associated with the young. That’s because as you get older, you will start to notice your teeth going yellow and maybe even turning a little crooked.

However, there’s an easy fix to this issue, and that’s teeth whitening. You can view some options here and have a look at the type of treatment that suits you. When you whiten your teeth, they don’t look as though they have been artificially Changed. Not even a dentist will be able to tell that you have had work done on them.

As for teeth that are a little crooked, there are treatment options available like six-month smile therapy. Smile therapy is a way to alter your teeth gradually, pushing them into the right position until you have the perfect look.

The Skin You’re In?

We all worry about wrinkles, but how do we make sure that our skin doesn’t age prematurely. Well, sunlight is probably your worst enemy and no, we’re not suggesting that you start to live like a vampire. You should on the other hand, always use sunscreen when you’re out in it. Not getting sunscreen can leave you in the position where your skin will burn and you don’t want that. This will leave your skin looking leathery eventually and cause wrinkles to develop early on. Is this the only issue for your skin?

Believe it or not, your diet is also a factor to consider here. You must make sure that you are eating the right food to keep your skin healthy. For instance, while a lot of people hate the taste, celery has been shown to have some truly wonderful effects on the way your skin looks. For instance, you might have bags under the eyes due to retain fluids. Celery can help soak that right up, getting rid of those unsightly signs of age.

Aside from this, there are ways to reduce the signs of wrinkles without cream. You just need to work on tightening the skin through exercises in the same way that you increase your muscle. An example of this type of exercise would be tilting your head towards the ceiling and then opening and shutting your mouth.

The clothes you wear and styles you choose will certainly impact how young you look. Obviously, you don’t want to dress like Miley Cyrus when you’re past thirty. But at the same time, you shouldn’t resign yourself to dressing like a grandmother with knitted cardigans and floral dresses. If you are confident with your figure, you shouldn’t be afraid to show it off in slender, classy clothing. Make sure that you pay attention to the style of celebrities such as Christina Binkley. While she may be one of the more mature celebrities, many people say she can pass for a late thirty. Why? Although she has had surgery the clothes she chooses to wear definitely help.

Working It Out

Finally, you do need to think about your figure. A lot of people realize they are looking old due to their body shape and push themselves to lose weight. Unfortunately, if you lose a lot of weight later in life too quickly, your body can end up looking quite haggard. That’s why you should work to gradually get in shape from an early age.

You want to reach a nice average weight by basic workouts that aren’t too strenuous. Yoga is a great example of an exercise that you should try because unlike weight lifting it doesn’t put immense strain on the body. As such, you can keep yourself fit, healthy and looking young without any issues at all.

I hope you find this advice useful. Take it on board, and I’m sure you can keep the look of youth for a lot longer.
