Reality Check – Shed off that pounds away

 

OMG it’s already a month after the holiday season officially ends and you haven’t shed off those extra pounds accumulated during those times. lol. #RealityCheck – One of the hardest things to do is to go on diet if your meaning of diet is starving yourself which is very very wrong. You just need to lessen your intakes of carbs, fats and sweets which were abundantly served at the feast table during the holiday season. Okay, easily said than done, been there and I always get sidetrack, I’m just human you know, hahaha. DISCIPLINE is really the key. 🙂

Eat more healthy food like veggies and fruits and sweat out those excess weight by simply walking, running/jogging, go up and down the stairs of your home or office (lessen the elevator rides and you’re doing your company some favor by saving on electric bills and yourself more). Do some stretching/dancing work-out at home in the tune of lively music, you can try to look at  guitarcenter.com has komplete 10 for more bubbly music accompaniment.

There’s no harm in trying and you might succeed without noticing it. 🙂

Singing is good for the health

 

Food and music go together when we celebrate birthdays and holidays at home. We rarely go out and eat in restos, most of the time we cook or order food and have them here at home where we can eat all we can and to top the occasion we have our videoke machine ready for non-stop singing, hehehe. Yes all family members are music lovers and can belt out a tune or two quite good except me, lol.. Listening to music and singing is a good way of relaxation and experts say singing is good for the health specially for the heart because:

“It’s a great way to keep in shape because you are exercising your lungs and heart. Not only that, your body produces ‘feel good‘ hormones called endorphins, which rush around your body when you sing.”

Besides singing along with a videoke machine, learning to play musical instruments like guitar to accompany you is a good way to tap your other talent, you can visit website like musiciansfriend.com to see more musical instruments of your interest.

How to Buy a Dressing Table Mirror – Important Things To Consider

 

Whether you are buying a dressing table mirror by itself or in conjunction with a new dressing table, there are a few areas of consideration to be aware of which will assist you in making your final decision. Dressing table mirrors are a great addition to any room. Not only do they provide function in the room and are used on a daily basis but they also improve the aesthetics and appeal of any bedroom.

#1. Modern Vs Traditional Mirrors

Dressing table mirrors are available in many different styles. Whether you choose to go with a modern mirror or a traditional styled mirror is entirely your choice. However, in making your decision, take into account surrounding furniture and the colours used in the room.

Obviously, a traditional styled mirror will look out of place in a modern bedroom and vice versa. However, colours play a more important part than one many think. For a modern coloured room with traditional styled furniture, both styles of mirrors can look acceptable.

#2. Shape And Size Of Mirror

In addition to being available in various styles, dressing table mirrors can be bought in many different shapes and sizes. To a certain extent the shape of mirror you decide to buy is closely related to the style in which you decide to buy. However in saying that, two mirrors may be the same shape, one being modern and the other more traditional.

The size of the mirror will be dependent on the size of your dressing table. There are advantages in having a larger surfaced mirror, such as opening up the room and creating an illusion that there is more space. A smaller mirror would be more appropriate if you want to draw focus to other features in the room.

#3. Border Of Mirror

It can be said that when choosing a dressing table mirror, that you are deciding on the frame instead. How much can mirrors really differ? Take this into account when making your decision. The style, colour and thickness of the border should be consistent with the colour and decor of your bedroom. If this is not possible, try to make the dressing table mirror as least contrasting as possible, perhaps by buying a borderless mirror.

Additionally, the materials used in the border are an important aspect to consider. Some materials commonly used include steel, wood, wicker, plastic and fabric.

#4. Buy An Illuminated Mirror

Illuminated mirror allow you to look at yourself in a lighting that is diffused and just right to make you see yourself in the right light and can cast the most relaxing shadows around you. Another advantage that you will get with an illuminated dressing table mirrors is that you don’t have to make cleaning of them a regular chore. As the lamps in illuminated mirrors are behind the glass, the surface on top remains smooth and hence easy to clean. There are no small nooks and crevices in an illuminated dressing table mirror for you to try hard to scrub out the dirt from.

An illuminated mirror is just the right mirror to be used for shaving or applying makeup with precision.

#5. Other Factors To Take Into Account

Obviously, do not choose a dressing table mirror in isolation. Make sure it will suit the actual dressing table and be compatible (size and connecting the two together). Whether you go with a mirror that needs to be attached or one that sits on the table is entirely your decision and will not make a big difference.

Similarly, dressing table mirrors can be static (as in not movable) or adjustable. Obviously adjustable types are more functional; however it will depend on what uses you intend to use the mirror for. You may also choose to go with multiple mirrors instead of a single faced mirror.

When we said healthy it means an over-all wellness of the body, including oral which is our teeth. Every family should have a regular dentist like Dublin OH family dentist that will take care of the family’s oral health.

Oral hygiene is very important since bacteria can live in your mouth in the form of plaque, causing cavities and gingivitis, which can lead to periodontal (gum) disease. In order to keep your mouth clean, you must practice good oral hygiene every day.

But this is not enough as we also have to have our teeth and gums checked regularly by dentist. With thorough dental clean once every six months to ensure that no cavities exist in our teeth. Having poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems in the future such as gum disease, heart disease, infection, strokes, bone loss and more. Regular check ups and cleanings can prevent these problems as well as provide you with good oral hygiene.

Here some of the dental hygiene tips to follow for healthy teeth and gums:

  • Brush at least twice a day or after every meal to avoid bacteria buildup from food left in your mouth or rinse mouth thoroughly if brushing is not possible.
  • Flossing to remove food particles left between teeth
  • Avoid smoking – as it can stain teeth with tartar from cigarettes and tobacco and also very detrimental to your health specially your lungs
  •  Avoid or lessen intakes of sodas, coffee and alcohol
  • Eat fruits and drinks rich in calcium and vit. D as these are very essential in maintaining healthy teeth and gums, like milk, fortified orange juice, yogurt, broccoli, cheese, and other dairy products.
  • Visit dentist twice a year as regular check-up
  • Don’t forget to clean your tongue when you brush your teeth as it is as important as brushing your teeth because countless of bacteria harbor beneath those spaces in your tongue.
  • Use mouthwash in addition to your tooth brushing activity.

Remember, a beautiful smile starts with a clean and healthy set of teeth.
