Weight Loss Exercise Just Makes Sense

A lot of us live our lives like we are bound by something unseen. Yes, still humans are built to move, too often many put themselves on activity restriction. We have bodies designed and quite able to  race across the savannas, but some live a lifestyle made up of: dragging along from the bed to the breakfast table; to the car seat; to the office chair; to the restaurant chair; to the living room couch and finally back to the bed.

 

It was not always this way. Not long ago in the United States, a man who worked on a farm did the equivalent of 15 miles of jogging every day; and his wife did the equivalent of 7 miles of jogging.

 

Today, our daily obligations of work and home keep us tied to our chairs, and if we want exercise, we have to desperately make time for it.

 

The fact is, health experts insist that the worldwide obesity situation is probably caused as much by lack of physical activity as by eating too much. Hence, it is important that people get revved up to move around.

 

However, that does not mean that a lap or two around the old high school track will offset a daily load of donuts. Exercise alone is not very efficient, experts say. They contend that if you just exercise and do not change your diet, you may be able to prevent weight gain or even lose a few pounds for only  a little while then the weight may just slide back on.

 

Nevertheless, it is not something that you are likely to sustain unless exercise is part of an overall program. The more regularly you exercise, the easier it is to maintain your weight. Here is what to do every day to make sure that you get the exercise you need.

 

1. Get quality rest preferably at night.

 

Make sure that you get adequate sleep. Good sleep habits are conducive to exercise, experts point out. If you feel worn out during the day, you are less likely to get much physical activity during the day.

 

In addition, there is evidence that people who are tired tend to eat more, using food as a substance for the rest they need.

 

2. Take A Walk

 

It is probably the easiest exercise program of all. In fact, it may be all you ever have to do, according to some professional advices of some health experts.

 

Gradually build up to at least 30 minutes of brisk walking five times a week. Brisk walks themselves have health and psychological benefits that are well worth the while.

 

3. Walk On A treadmill

 

When the weather is bad, you might not feel like going outdoors. But if you have a treadmill in the television room, you can catch up on your favorite shows while you are doing your daily good turn for your weight-maintenance plan.

 

Most of us watch television anyway, and indoor exercise equipment enables anyone to turn a sedentary activity into a healthy walk.

 

4. Go For It Today

 

Excuses aside, lack of time is certainly a limiting factor in most lifestyles. That is why health experts suggest a basic guideline for incorporating exercise into your schedule. If you needed another reason to get started, there are many.

 

Get as much exercise as you can that feels good without letting it interfere with your work or family life. If you need to, remind yourself that you are preventing many health problems when you prevent weight gain; and keeping your health in a manageable place is a gift to your family as well as yourself. Live lighter, live longer.

 

Some of The Best Options for Black Hair Color

When you think of all the options out there to dye your hair with you might get confused a bit in the process of it all. After years of practice with hair coloring I’m here to tell you about the good solutions for you to try, but also to tell you what others have said absolutely works like a charm for them.

Changing the color of natural black hair can be quite a task if you don’t know what to look for or what to do. So lets start with some of the better solutions first to get you on track with this hair color transformational thing. One of the most popular products to use for dying your hair to a long lasting color is Clairol Texture and Tones Permanent Hair color, next on the list is Cream of Natures brand of hair color or Dark and Lovely Hair Color. These brands have been on the market for over 20 years at least. You can count on them for predictable results. Many beauticians say these brands are true to bringing out the color that is on the box. In other words what you see is what you get.

Some people still argue that at home hair coloring is not a wonderful idea for newbie hair colorists. Professional stylists often say that it’s safer to get your hair permanently dyed by a beautician. Their reasons for saying this is because of the mistakes that can happen as a result of a person not following directions. For instance if you don’t rinse the hair dye out of your hair all the way or well enough, you could expect to have some possible issues with hair breakage perhaps. In addition no one wants you to get hair color in your eyes or to leave the color solution on your skin for longer than absolutely necessary to do so. Again, professionals know what to do, so its a bit safer to hire someone plus you may need a day off anyway.

The risk of damaging your hair by doing a permanent coloring on your hair at home is higher some might say. So, as a precaution if you prefer not to go to the beautician or you don’t want to pay out the money for one there are still some great options. Let’s say that you don’t know which hair color you want. You could always visit Sally’s beauty supply for Jazzy’s Semi-Permanent Hair Color. There are so many unique colors to choose from too. The nice thing about Jazzy’s is that it’s just temporary so it always washes out after seven shampoos it’s definitely a far healthier solution than the permanent stuff. Jazzy’s is what you would call a ‘color rinse’ so it contains no ammonia or peroxide, but also the color comes out deep and bold.

Pick your colors wisely. You can try out the temporary color before you go to the permanent stuff. That way you wear it for a while then if like the way it looks on you and want the color permanently you can have a beautician dye your hair that color. Be mindful as you choose a color to wear because ‘jet-black’ will be hard to lighten with another color. If you choose a permanent black color just make sure it’s a color you want to wear for a long time.

There are many lovely colors that look good next to brown skin. Some of the colors you should check out are, deep reds, chocolatey browns, light browns or even burgundy colors too. Have fun and no matter what you still look stunning!

What to Know About Late Ovulation

Ovulation

Lots of women are in tune with their menstrual cycle schedules. They know when they’re coming just like they would their birthdays. Some of them will experience a more regular scheduler compared to others and will go through ‘late ovulation’. And because this is tied to their period, they will see it more quickly compared to some others.
For the pre-menopausal women their main worry in regard to late ovulation is the possibility of getting pregnant. However, late ovulation can be caused by several things which we will discuss in more detail below.
Breast-feeding:
Breast-feeding can be one of the common causes of late ovulation. This is particularly true during the first six months. It may cause some serious shifts in the woman’s hormones and body. A few mothers who are breast-feeding might experience various ovulation problems at times like these. There are certain women who will not ovulate whatsoever and only experience it during times of breast-feeding.
Hormonal Shifts:
Too Much or Too Little Body Fat – How much body fat women have on their bodies has an impact on their levels of estrogen. Having too little fat or too much of it may cause late ovulation to occur. Too little body fat is most likely to be the culprit than too much. This is due to the fact that for maintaining their levels of estrogen production, a woman’s body might require a specific amount of fat. Having fat levels that are inappropriate may cause other types of health issues as well. It is crucial that these fat levels are controlled and a healthy weight is maintained.
Medications – A lot of prescription medications come with adverse side effects that can really upset the delicate hormonal chemistry in a woman. One of the results could be ‘late ovulation’. Drugs used for cancer treatment are the type that can cause ovulation shifts. Women who take steroid hormone treatments can experience side effects too. Some women who have to take prescribed medications to treat a mental illness such as psychosis or depression can see their hormone levels altered as well.
Hormonal Shifts – Hormonal shifts are quite common and can lead to late ovulation. In order for a normal ovulation cycle to take place, a woman’s body must produce the proper amount of hormones and have them released at the right intervals. Anytime this schedule changes a woman can experience shifts in ovulation. There can be many reasons for these hormone shifts like stress and over-exertion. Whatever cause it the hormonal shifts are many times the exact cause of having late ovulation.
Many women go through times of late ovulation at some time in their lives. It your experience was just once or if you only suffer an occasional occurrence, then there may not be any need for serious concern or health risks. But the experts do recommend that you consult with an experienced OBGYN if late ovulation repeats itself often. A woman can go through life and experience late ovulation and never face anything that is serious. But it is always best to err on the side of caution. Consult a doctor whenever late ovulation causes you to feel concerned.

Get Healthier Natural Hair Now!

 

You will find a number of distinct hair vitamins and minerals that can play a major role in helping a man or woman have a healthy head of natural hair. If a person does not have adequate nutrients in their body from the foods they eat everyday, there may be a lack of minerals in the body. An absence of vitamins in the body can lead to hair thinning, or even total balding in many serious cases. What most people don’t know is that it’s a well documented fact in Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine that the state of a persons hair totally reflects the overall condition of a person’s body. In case you aren’t eating or drinking enough ‘good stuff’ you can bet your body and hair are going to pay the price for your nourishment slacking. If you want to make a change in your hair you have to change your course of action for a more balanced one and soon.

 

Additional hair vitamin supplements should be taken if you are generally not well health wise. Foods from nature are the original vitamins and minerals, so it’s not a bad idea to look in your local produce department before looking anywhere else for the answers. Now, if you’re not sure if you need increased dietary supplements or a better variety of foods to choose from, search no further than your hair follicles for the clear answers. If you touch your hair and notice excess shedding on your clothes, hair popping as you comb your hair, slow to no hair growth, yes your hair and body may be undernourished. Don’t worry about it though since you are in the right place to make changes with the right answers.

 

Natural hair is very strong and it takes a lot to really kill it. So you have some advantages on your side here… First things first, decide to make a change and stick to it! That’s the most significant thing you can do right now. Next you have to drink more water if you aren’t already doing so. Drinking enough water looks different on each person though. For instance, if you are a runner, you should drink more than 8 cups of water a day optimally. Listen to your body, feel your hair. Then add the natural ingredients to them to help them growth happy and healthy.

 

Some of the most critical hair vitamins that a particular person requires to have wholesome hair include things like B6, biotin, inositol along with folic acid. The ideal way to guarantee an individual is provided with a good amount of these vital hair nutrients is for them to be taken as nutritional vitamin supplements. It is not just hair vitamins which are usually found in the vitamin section in a market or drug store but also several others that are necessary for healthy hair. Some of the other minerals that are essential to both the body and hair functioning properly, include magnesium, sulphur, silica and zinc.

 

All nutrients are key to a balanced body. However, the most essential hair vitamin is vitamin A. It is best to add this necessary vitamin as beta-carotene though. It is best in the form of Beta-Carotene because vitamin A can be toxic if consumed in substantial levels but beta-carotene has no such complications and is easily converted by the body into vitamin A that can be used to promote healthy hair. Of course, vitamin A is not just a hair vitamin, it is also needed for a number of other functions including standard development of bones, skin, nails and the defensive sheath around nerve fibers.

 

Protein is an additional essential natural hair vitamin. This is because natural hair itself is in essence protein. The quantity of this vitamin that a person eats in their diet can affect the hair instantly. If a lot of protein is integrated into a persons diet regime then this important vitamin will cause thicker, longer hair growth and a far healthier head of hair. On the other hand, a person who has a diet that is missing this hair vitamin will suffer from hair loss and sluggish hair growth.

 

Obviously, it is not only vitamins and minerals that are required to make certain a person has healthy and balanced, strong hair. Again, there are a number of experts who have found that there are direct links between the overall well being of a person and the condition of their hair. Very good example, If a person is under a great deal of stress or they usually don’t get enough sleep, their hair can also suffer and it is likely that their diet will not provide the adequate nutritional requirements to reverse these side effects.

 

On a final note, hair vitamin and mineral supplements can be the perfect aid to strengthen weak and damaged hair if they are also accompanied by a balanced lifestyle. A balanced lifestyle is one that includes regular sleep, occasional exercise, drinking plenty of water and of course our favorite! (drum roll please) The amazing last but not least…! eating lots of fruit and veggies! Have fun and do right by your hair by making a change on the inside to in turn take care of the outside.

Connect With The Elements Of An Amazing Life

Mother Nature

Like the menu from a restaurant in which various varieties of meals are served – everything from appetizers, to main dishes, to sweets. Similarly your life has its recipe for an high energy life. Each person has their own elements that enhance and bring out the happy and optimistic side of them. When you look deep into a person to see what they are when they’re at their peak of joy you may be inspired. Also their smile may help you plus others to be uplifted a great deal. It’s Inspiring, and interesting how connected we are to everyone in the world.

Think about the following: If you do something as simple as to, help the needy.. by offering them solutions, money, resources or in other ways like simply listening to their story for instance, don’t sweat it because the return on your investment will certainly come back to you at least ten times over. The key to being content in giving is to never expect anything in return from giving. Rather, appreciate the feeling that you experience in your heart as a result of giving along with sharing with someone who needs. To share is truly divine in nature. Since we all are divine in nature at the center of it all, its vital to show our genuine natures by giving back.

An additional way to take pleasure in living is by listening to music. Life is about enjoyment at all times so go have fun with your favorite music. Make sure you sing passionately along too. If you want to sing your best, do it up! Or just sing completely off-key if you want. Whichever makes you feel great or helps make you laugh. The notion is to let go and let life in. Some spontaneity is good for the soul. Don’t laugh alone though, please share the singing with your friends, family or neighbors they’ll get into the spirit and maybe even join you! Celebrate!

The sounds of mother nature is music as well. The gentle sound of the river coursing, or the wind whistling on seashore, and birds tweeting are as organic as mother nature is. The magical sounds of nature is serene, holistic music. Visit nature for your retreat any day for unquestionable results.

Let’s face it. Daily life is known to have its share of difficulties, mishaps, and fortunes. Sometimes news some that you don’t want to hear. You can only ignore a challenge for a time, eventually you have to face your life and deal with whatever comes your way. There are a couple of ways to look at each situation. One way is to feel unfortunate, and the other is to be joyful no matter what! Being joyful has its benefits of course just as feeling the opposite has the opposite effect.

A social gathering devoid of lightheartedness is an uninteresting one. This is true in your life too. So make sure to populate your world with plenty of laughs to keep it light and happy. The more balanced and certainly spontaneous a circumstance is, it’s far more healthy, and also the better it can brighten up your state of mind.

Appreciate the lessons that produced from adversity. Remember that errors make it possible for you to master opportunities concealed in adversities. There is great meaning within every occurrence in your lifetime. Enjoy life but also value every last lesson that you discover.

Carnelian : A stone of Confidence and Action.

Carnelian (also spelled cornelian) is a brownish-red mineral which is commonly used as a semi-precious gemstone. Similar to carnelian is sard, which is generally harder and darker. (The difference is not rigidly defined, and the two names are often used interchangeably.)  Both carnelian and sard are varieties of the silica mineral chalcedony colored by impurities of iron oxide. The color can vary greatly, ranging from pale orange to an intense almost-black coloration.

The bow drill was used to drill holes into carnelian in Mehrgarh between 4th-5th millennium BC. Carnelian was recovered from Bronze Age Minoan layers at Knossos on Crete in a form that demonstrated its use in decorative arts;[3] this use dates to approximately 1800 BC. Carnelian was used widely during Roman times to make engraved gems for signet or seal rings for imprinting a seal with wax on correspondence or other important documents. Hot wax does not stick to carnelian. Sard was used for Assyrian cylinder seals, Egyptian and Phoenician scarabs, and early Greek and Etruscan gems. The Hebrew odem (translated sardius), the first stone in the High Priest’s breastplate, was a red stone, probably sard but perhaps red jasper.

Karneol

Carnelian (also sometimes referred to as cornelian) is found primarily in India, as well as various sites in South America. It is a variety of chalcedony. The most favorable pieces are a deep red to red-orange hue. Carnelian has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the property of the noble class. People holding a high social status were often buried with this gem stone.

Ancient Egyptians carried it on and about their bodies as a source of constant renewal and vitality. It was also told in the Egyptian Book of the Deadto be placed in tombs as “magic armor” for life after death.

A Carnelian in the form of the “tjet,” symbol of Mother Isis, was placed on the neck of a mummy to ensure the protection, safe passage, and rebirth of the spirit in the afterlife.

Another Carnelian amulet was the Eye of Horus, which is still believed to offer protection against the evil eye.

Carnelian is an energy booster. It helps the insecure person to find strength within them so they can come into their own. It is said to increase the appetite.

In Renaissance magic, the carnelian was usually engraved with a sword or images of warriors. Then this as a magical amulet was place in the home to guard it from lighting and storms or carried as protection against enchantment.

Carnelian is a great grounding stone and helping one to be more present in their life. This, of course, can make it much easier to help you find direction within your life. Carnelian helps you to feel in control of life.

Magickal uses of Carnelian include using it as a focus for past life work and for finding a “twin soul” or family.

In Roman times, Carnelian was engraved with the head of a lion or a great leader.

Indium: An important mineral for the overall well being of our bodies.

English: Main pathway in growth regulation by ...
Image via Wikipedia

Indium was always thought of as an element that did nothing for the human body and was thus a non-essential mineral. It was only recently that this mineral has been regarded as essential for human health. Indium is a rare trace (or micro-) mineral believed to support several hormonal systems in the body and may elevate immune activity and reduce the severity and duration of a plethora of human conditions.It is believed that indium may provide aid to the hypothalamus and pituitary glands. These two master hormone producers have the job of maintaining optimal output of hormones for the body. Once this stasis is achieved, a great many other hormone-producers become stimulated, causing a domino effect and helping retard aging and various health problems.

It is not found in food or water; in fact, although it is not ordinarily found in the human body at all after approximately 25-30 years of age, those people taking indium experience beneficial results immediately. Some of the short-term benefits reported by many indium users include: increased energy, an enhanced sense of well being – the so-called “indium high”, and a reduced need for sleep. Long term benefits of indium include (but are not limited to) a gradual correction of many chronic illnesses such as: ADD, improved blood pressure, stress-related problems, healthier body weight, autism, and a reversal of visible signs of aging. It is believed that when taking indium one feels rejuvenated and energized because the hormonal system is working better.

Functions and benefit of Indium

  • This element seems to support the body’s hormone systems, including the body’s two master hormone producers, the pituitary and hypothalamus glands. These master hormone glands have both responded to the presence of indium. Their roles in the body are to provide the appropriate amount of hormones for various bodily processes and mental states. When these two glands are working optimally, the body’s other hormone-producing glands also work properly, making the entire hormone system function properly.
  • Water soluble indium is considered non-toxic when taken orally. People who have supplemented with water soluble indium report immediate benefits, such as increased energy levels, less need for sleep, and an elevated sense of confidence and well-being.
  • The main function that indium performs is to enhance food and essential mineral absorption such as copper, chromium, manganese, zinc etc, which have always been considered as essential minerals for your health.
  • They also report benefits from long-term supplementation, including normalized blood pressure, less feeling of stress, a return to normal body weight, and improvement in Attention Deficit Disorder.
  • indium include (but are not limited to) a gradual correction of many chronic illnesses such as: ADD, improved blood pressure, stress-related problems, healthier body weight, autism, and a reversal of visible signs of aging. It is believed that when taking indium one feels rejuvenated and energized because the hormonal system is working better.
  • Libido Returned To Normal For Both, Male and Female
  • Menstrual Problems
  • Migraines

Some symptoms of an indium deficiency:

  • Cancer
  • Some glandular disorders
  • Depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Obesity
Whether these health concerns are alleviated because of the direct action of indium, or because of the increased action of other minerals that indium helps to absorb, is not very apparent. Regardless, it can be said without any doubt, that indium is in fact a mineral that cannot be relegated to the status of non-essential any longer.

Cleansing Your Gemstone

How to clean your Gemstones

There are many ways to cleanse a gemstone. My preferred ways methods are to blow on them, use my hands and energize them then sweep the unwanted energy out into the air and towards the window, lastly i always put certain crystals in the window sill so they can recharge in the sunlight and moonlight..i’ll leave the ones i plan on not wearing for a month or so in there. Yes, it may be a long time to some people but if you take only the gems you won’t use for a while to put into the window to charge..you will forget about them for a while.

One simple way to cleanse a gemstone is to run cold water and hold the stone in your hands while water run over and through your cupped hands. You can also place your stone in the ocean to clean it, this method is beneficial since, salt water is very healing and purifying. I have heard some people bury a crystal as well. Placing a gemstone in soil sounds so organic. Of course those who know me, know how organic i like like to be. However, If you choose this method to cleanse your gemstones, please mark the ground where you place your stone. you certainly do not want to misplace it! Not a good idea, right… Exactly what i was thinking. So there is another way to bury a stone, it just came to me. You can use a flower pot with soil in it..Or even better use a pot with a plant in it and place some stones around the plant. I do this one and my plants grow very healthy too. Some crystals will want to stay in the soil with the plants. You will be able to tell if you should remove the crystal or not, by what you intuitively feel about it.

Plants and crystals can communicate with us. Yes its true. Anyway, I will save that information for another time. That’s definitely worth writing another blog post about. Another cool way to cleanse a gemstone is to do a meditation while holding your stones, then visualize running them through a fire. Be careful not to burn yourself during your visualization. Your meditation should feel good! OK Alright, i think we covered all the popular gemstone cleansing methods. Any other ways you prefer to cleanse your gems, please share your method and leave a comment.

Now we have covered cleansing gems with the 4 elements: earth, air, fire and water. There is just one more way you can cleanse your gems. HA! You can use the 5th element. What the heck is that you ask? Well you can use your third eye. Place a gemstone at your third eye and reset the gemstone back to clear. The third eye is localized in the pituitary body and the pineal gland. It is located at the point between the eyebrows. The third eye point expands up to the middle of the forehead when opened. Cleansing method and time depend on you. Some people say that darker stones should be cleansed for a longer period of time. Some say once a week is  sufficient for all stones that are worn on a regular basis. Crystals should be cleansed at some point, no matter which method you choose. People often wonder why gemstones need cleaning, they are in the atmosphere where they pick up energy, which is always traveling between everything. Gemstones can pick up anything in a room or space. For instance, If energy is left over from an argument, gemstones will pick that up too. Alright that’s all for now. Have fun with your crystals! Show them some love.
