Myth: Sleeping on your side with inevitably cause wrinkles

I hate to say it, but this is true…! The positions in which you sleep do in fact affect the wrinkles on your face – That’s why some lines are named sleep lines. If you happen to sleep in the same position, on the same side of your face night after night, your skin will be repeatedly smashed up against your pillow – and as you age the skin’s natural collagen and connective tissues become less supportive; which is why when you mush your face into your pillow you can get the wrinkles. How do you prevent this from happening? Try sleeping on you back – Some people find this proves more difficult than it sounds. Helpful tricks to aid in avoiding sleep lines: satin pillowcases or specially formed beauty sleep pillows which alleviate pressure on the face and pulling of your skin.

Once In A Blue Moon

Friday, July 31, 2015

Lydia Hearst
Tonight’s full moon, the last BLUE MOON until 2018 (partly what makes it so special), is rising in ☆Aquarius☆  – If you don’t already know, a blue moon is the term for the second full moon in the same month. This cosmic event is unprecedented; it’s truly a month of transitions.
Aquarius, the water bearer, brings inklings of expansive vision and a new breath release which comes after facing our struggles. By taking people and things for granted you can wind up with nothing. And, it’s when you have nothing that you appreciate everything.
This moon we are being asked to STOP. Take a look around and to see the bigger picture for what it really is. Change is important and a constant in life, embrace challenges enthusiastically.
Experiences and relationships are paramount, especially right now. As for relationships, because of Venus, the planet of love, going retrograde a week prior to this moon, there will be an extremely heavy and IMPORTANT connection to romantic relationships. This isn’t about just any sort of romance or love though, it is about the kind of love that comes around only “once in a blue moon.” It’s time to conquer obstacles and open yourself up to the possibility of love and admit whatever truth the lies deep within your heart.
Be honest with yourself, reflect upon your decisions made over the course of this past year, and accept life’s transition. There is SO much happening around this moon in terms of once-in-a-lifetime type chances.  We all make mistakes which enables us to learn and appreciate our lives – which can often times be difficult, because to be honest, a lot of people do lead difficult lives. People fail all the time, I fail, it just happens. But from those failures, we all learn the greatest lessons for the only true failure is to have never tried. NOW is the time to navigate your life and find balance in your choices; it’s all the little things that are most infinitely important. Always believe in yourself and embrace who you are.

Something Needs To Change

Let’s face it, no matter what side of this debate you fall on, firearms are completely legal in the United States and there is unfortunately not very much that can be done to prevent some lunatic from sneaking a gun into a public event or movie theater and opening fire. There are, however, two ways which I think definitely could help to bring the “body count” way down: Read More >

Every day life is made up of a million little situations and things.  Life, it’s short, but it’s the longest thing we have. Even at its most beautiful can be brutally ugly. We will all die, the Stars will fade and everything known will cease to exist, that is certain. It is living that is beautiful. And as human beings, we are able, to the best of our abilities, to live life to the fullest.

One of the biggest struggles in life is the struggle to know, embrace, and accept ourselves, with all of our faults and imperfections. Be mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Know your vulnerabilities as well as your strengths and achievements, and learn to love yourself for both.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always trying to live life the best that I can. To be alive is to have experiences – as hard as I try not to, I’m constantly making mistakes (I’m only human), I falter, change my path and direction I life, I judge myself and every move of decision I make while fighting the urge to place that judgment on others.

We all make mistakes which enables us to learn and appreciate our lives – which can often times be difficult, because to be honest, a lot of people do lead difficult lives. People fail all the time, I fail, it just happens, but from hose failures we all learn the greatest lessons for the only true failure is to have never tried.

By taking people and things for granted you can wind up with nothing. And, it’s when you have nothing that you appreciate everything.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Terrifying Trend

Thursday, July 16, 2015

This is absolutely terrifying and happening to more and more people…

Rhabdomyolysis – The National Institutes of Health describes the condition as “the breakdown of muscle fibers that leads to the release of muscle fiber contents (myoglobin) into the bloodstream. Myoglobin is harmful to the kidney and often causes kidney damage.” The condition is commonly brought on by excessive physical activity and results when excessive toxins are released into the bloodstream.

  • No pain, no gain. You have to suffer to get in shape.
  • If I don’t almost throw up, I’m holding back too much.
  • You’re only as good as your last workout.

 

Sore muscles are not always just a symptom of a strenuous exercise – This could potentially be an early sign of a serious medical condition. More and more physicians and trainers started seeing cases of Rhabdomyolysis with the advent of intense conditioning programs like CrossFit, cycling, TRX.

Just because something is “trendy” doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Fitness is a lifestyle that greatly affects your health and should be worked at over time. A lot of exercise machines and routines have a number of ‘warnings’ about what strenuous exercise can do to you body and more often than not, people ignore these warnings. Don’t push yourself to the point of exhaustion and breaking because you think it will pay off when instead it might just kill you, or worse (if you can imagine that).

Please, don’t punish your body and overexert yourself by a cleansing/bootcamp crash course. You body has a limit, and yet people pay for trainers and classes to push them past their limit without realizing the potentially fatal harm they are causing. Focus on the long-term results for yourself and your body, not the immediate. As the old saying goes “anything worth having is worth waiting and working for.” Please… be careful, be healthy and listen to your body and yourself. Life is fragile and we’re only just human.

Do you immediately reach for the razor the moment you hop into the shower? If you’re thinking yes, you’re making a mistake. Shaving isn’t exactly the highlight of any woman’s day, and it’s perfectly reasonable to want to get it over with, but if you follow this advice you will have smoother, happier legs and skin.
