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.

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.
