Sex as a Fountain of Youth? Quickie:

Quickie: Sex as a Fountain of Youth?

It’s been studied that “casual” sex or “affairs” have been shown to have a very negative effect, by aging a person, substantially, mentally and physically, due to health risks and stress.

Studies have also found having monogamous sex with your partner on a weekly basis, can make you look and feel 7-10 years younger. When you know your partner has a full clean bill of health, sex can have many good benefits. See, Lack of Sex Making you Sick?

One more reason, to not tell your spouse/partner anymore, “you’re not in the mood”. It’s cheaper than botox.

How to stay warm on cold nights, Even in Halloween Costumes.

By Tia Cristy
A Special Tip Edition (Recap: Great Tip to Remember!)

So it’s Halloween once again, and who knows what the weather will be like. Lots of parties and functions happen the weekend before Halloween as
well, so I wanted to bring this tip to you especially today. October is always a patch of strange weather patterns. So who knows if your costume will suffice or you’ll be suffering in the cold until you walk out the door.

Lots of ladies love to take the opportunity to go sexy and wear a little less for this holiday, but sometime the weather is so bitter, a coat or sweater has to cover up the clever character because, you can’t stop the shivers. And how sexy do you feel when your shivering so bad you can’t function. And after paying a hefty price tag for that costume, just to cover it up, can real be disappointing. Men usually tend to appear okay with whatever the weather may be but kids too, have had to battle some cold nights to get that candy.

Here’s a quick tip to help keep you warm if the night isn’t so mild. Grab a cordless heat wrap from the pharmacy. They come in different sizes for a better fit. It’s a Velcro band that heats up in about 30 minutes. This can actually work for a bunch of costumes, even if your costume is tight and little, (ladies). All you have to do is get a larger size and wrap it closer to your behind; that little poof skirt should hide this warmer from being seen. The cotton strap that wraps around the body is quite comfortable. If it’s too hot against your skin put a layer (scarf or bandana) in between the wrap and your skin.

If you decide to use this on your kids make sure you definitely have a layer in between their skin and the wrap. Check their comfort regularly. You don’t want any burns. And, kids tend not to feel temperature differences as quickly as an older child or adult. There are several warnings on the package, so be sure to read all of them before using.

This is a great idea for men and women going to outdoor sporting events too. The heat wrap usually lasts up to 8 hours. So next time you’re about to go see that football game throw one on under your jersey. Being warm makes it easier to cheer.

Don’t forget it takes 30 minutes to heat up, so try it out before you leave the house to make sure the level of heat is comfortable.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Lack of Sex Making You Sick?

Lack of Sex Making You Sick?

The truth about sex is, sex can make you sick. Having multiple partners or being non-monogamous, can put you at a far great risk of catching something. “Casual” sex can cause simple things like, the common cold to far worse life-threatening illnesses, even when thinking, safety measures have been implemented. (And, we’ve already discussed the very scary numbers of 1 in 4 over the age of 14 are carriers of something STD related)

But, studies have shown that people in long-term, monogamous relationships, have actually gained many health benefits from having a good and steady sex life. Spouses that partake in sex 3 times a week ( the average sex life, of a married couple) have an increase in their immune systems by 30%.

So, using the excuse that you don’t feel well, to get out of sex with your partner, according to the study, shouldn’t work anymore. Just think, the lack of sex with your spouse could be making you sick. Having a romantic tussle with your spouse, can help make all aliments feel better, even that headache!

Tips in Action: When Everything is Against You.

I saw Keith Urban in concert the other night and I must say, it was a great show. Keith Urban has had an impressive career, with an upbeat, outstanding outlook on life, while appearing to be very grounded. So I was wondering, what kind of tips he lives by.

“Everybody’s on their own path and everybody has to come to their own
realization of what they want their life to be, and nobody can do it for
you and nobody can tell you how you should live and you just have to
make those decisions for yourself.” he said during an interview.

I thought, that is a great tip that people should realize, your life is up to you.

And, so I will add to that tip, when everything seems like its against you in life, that is the time you need to reflect and see if it is really, everything against you, or are you really going against everything. Meaning that, if people that love and care about you, are saying your on the wrong path or handling something wrong or say you have a bad attitude; you need to look at yourself, and see if you’re on the right path for you or ask yourself are they right about you going down a wrong path.

The first step to personal change is, acknowledging what you need or what to change.

Remember, when things are right for you, not everyone has to agree with your decisions but, happiness and support usually surrounds you, when you are doing good things.

It’s a Good Day. Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: It’s a Good Day.

One amazing trigger to have a good day, is to declare it. Sounds too easy, right? Fact is, it’s part of self-fulfilling prophecy.

Every day when you awake in the morning, and you make your first trip to the bathroom, look in the mirror and say, “It’s a good day!” It may not work the first couple days, but it will soon take root. Positive reinforcement, will change your outlook. It has been found that people who declare a good day, will in fact, start having good days, within a months time.

And, those who continue the declaration as a daily regimen, see positive changes all around them from a happier family life, to stronger financial securities, overcoming health issues and even work related promotions. It most cases, people say that the people around them are more positive too. So, just like misery loves company; it’s good to know, Joy and happiness, is contagious too!

So, trigger a happy life starting with, it’s a good day!

How to Relieve a Headache: Tips on Triggers

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: Can’t shake that headache?

One trigger everyone can use at one point in time, is knowing how relieve a headache fairly quick. The best spot to tackle that headache, is a the point in between your thumb and “pointer” finger. It’s that pudgy part of the web, when you stretch the finger and thumb to make the famous “L” shape.

Press down with your opposite hand’s finger (under hand) and thumb (on top of hand). Apply a deep pressure and hold for several seconds and release. Magically the pain in your head should start to release as well. If pain continues, try trigger point again or switch hands and repeat process.

If you have a trigger point you want to share, email me or comment.

Protection is Protection. Stupid Tip of the Day. (MA)

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Protection is Protection.

Yeah, I don’t think so.

When it comes to that magic moment you don’t want anything to ruin the momentum, but in fact you must remember to think first and act second. It can be a scary world out there if you are not in a committed relationship and don’t protect yourself.

Studies are always coming up with new numbers, but it can be safe to say 1 out of 3 over the age of 14 has the potential of having an STD. So to put it bluntly, wrap it up. If you are responsible enough to have sex, you are responsible to be in charge of protecting yourself. Sex responsibility is not sexist.

Birth control does only that, protects you against giving birth, and is not 100% effective. Condoms are the way to protect yourself from pregnancy and STD’s, but as you also know, they too are not 100% effective. It may sound cliche’ but, abstinence is the only full proof way to keep clear of both, pregnancy and STD’s.

Using a plastic bag or wrap, is not the same thing as a condom, no matter what your friends may tell you. Plastic wrap only protects your food from freezer burn. (not 100% effective) No matter how much the urge has taken over, take the time to get the proper protection, because protection is not always protection.

De-Foam Your Brew.

By Tia Cristy

De-Foam Your Brew.

Okay so normally I would answer a question today, but I was at a block party the other day and someone next to me asked his friend,”How do you get rid of the head, from the beer, dude?”

Amazing that they were standing next to me, because I was able to quickly reply a great tip.

So, if you pour a beer into a glass or cup and, the head foams up to give you a beer stache. (kegs can produce a lot of foam) Take your finger, rub it on the side of your nose and dip that finger into the beer and stir. The foam will start to disappear.

Even the slightest oils from your skin, break it down, so no more foam to inhale before taking your first sip.

A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody.

In most cases that is true, with generally healthy individuals, a little sweet treat doesn’t hurt with digestion. But if you have a yeast infection eating sweets can hurt more, than you think.

Yeast can effect women and men, internally and externally. And, yeast thrives on sugar. So, if you have a yeast infection, be sure not to give into that craving of sugar, that also includes fruits. Fruits have a high natural sugar content that can feed the yeast.

So, if you think you have a yeast infection, seek medical treatment and drink plenty of water, and save the desert for another time.

Last Day of the Mayan Calendar and you need a Quickie.

By Tia Cristy

Last Day of the Mayan Calendar and you need a Quickie.

So who knows what today really brings as the Mayans hard work comes to an end. But I imagine somewhere and some how, life will go on procreating. But, lets just say you need some help in the lubrication department and your partner is allergic or sensitive to consumer products.

I recommend this anyway; it’s a natural, olive oil. Olive oil can be used safely for him and her a like. It’s got anti-fungal and anti-bacteria properties, it’s all natural with no synthetic chemicals and most important it’s slippery.

So put olive oil to use in places other than the kitchen. If you have an allergy to olives, almond, sesame, or coconut could work too, but most of those have a higher percentage of allergy sufferers than olive oil, so know yours and your partners allergies before you practice procreation.
