Health In & Out

All we girls hear about is dieting and being thin. It gets a little old! How about some advice on just being healthy. It’s not all diet and exercise and fitting into a mold…it’s embracing your body and taking care of yourself so that you may live a long, healthy lifestyle!

3 Guaranteed Ways To Rub Out The Regret


Nostalgia can rear its head at the most unexpected of times. It could be a song playing on the radio that reminds you of an ex-partner, a smell which throws you back to a summer 9 years ago or a name mentioned that you haven’t heard in awhile. Bringing up feelings that you’d either rather hide from others or indulge yourself in, it’s a strange phenomenon. It’s meant to be one that’s fondly looked back on, according to the definition. Regret is the form of nostalgia which is associated with the negative. In our lives, it’ll be more beneficial to our well being to have nostalgia over regret – so what can we do to lessen the latter?

Out With The Old

Old stuff lingers rounds and haunts us more than we care to think about. Getting a tattoo in the heat of the moment, for example, could be something that we look back on with regret and have no idea how to fix – or do, but don’t want to because we have heard about how much tattoo removal hurts. Erasing away the evidence won’t erase away the memories, but it’ll help to not be reminded every time you look at something. You’ll have to go to a special part of your mind to get a throwback to whatever it was that previous jumped out at you every time you looked at the thing associated with it.

Take On Challenges

As we get older, we grow increasingly more aware of things that we should have done better. From concentrating more in class to making more informed life choices when it came to our careers and love lives, there are some things which simply cannot be reversed. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of a missed opportunity. There are so many routes into further education now that you’d be hard pressed not to find a course that would suit you and your lifestyle.

Get In Touch

We are now in the best position that we have ever been in to get in touch with people who we may have lost contact with or have made a mistake with in the past. Reaching out is only a text, call or instant message away – no longer do we have to travel miles on foot to reach the person that we need to see. There is absolutely no need for regret in terms of seeing people and making the most of your lives together. This especially goes for family; our jobs nowadays offer the flexibility of holidays for us to utilise as we wish, and instead of leaving the regret to form when it’s too late to pay a visit to those who you always intended to see but never quite got around to doing so, take the opportunity by the horns and invest your time into doing it. If you are sitting on the pride of not being the first person to make contact, check yourself and get over it; else it may be a situation that never materializes.



Low Mood? Discover The Happiness You Felt When You Were Young


We all know what it’s like to experience low moods from time to time. For most of us, the situation isn’t bad enough to visit the doctor and ask for medication. However, it can still affect our lives and leave us feeling miserable. When the depression isn’t the result of a chemical imbalance, we have to take a long look at our lives. Sometimes we feel down because we’re not happy with our current situation. Maybe you have a job you don’t enjoy or a stressful relationship? Either way, you should try to reconnect to the happiness you felt when you were younger. The ideas on this page will assist you in achieving that goal.

 

Listen to music you used to love

The music you listened to from the ages of thirteen to eighteen will stay with you for the rest of your life. You made lots of happy memories listening to those tracks, and so you should try to recreate that mood. You can get pretty much any songs online for free these days, so you don’t have to spend any cash. Just watch the videos on YouTube if you don’t want to subscribe to Spotify. Spend time creating a playlist of all your favorite artists. Listen to the songs as you go about your business at home. You should notice a vast improvement in your mood within minutes. Music has a fantastic way of lifting us up and making us smile.

 

Watch TV shows you used to enjoy

You probably spent endless Saturday mornings in front of the TV when you were younger. In most instances, you will have had a fantastic time lazing around and viewing those shows. Well, you can do the same thing again right now if you’re smart. Nearly every program you used to enjoy is available online or on DVD from your local store. Maybe you loved Saved By The Bell or Goosebumps back in the day? Perhaps you enjoyed Japanese cartoons? You’d have no trouble finding a licensed anime streaming service if you search Google. There are hundreds of different platforms around these days. You just need to select the one that offers lots of your favorite shows.

 

Call some old friends and arrange a get-together

Most people lose contact with their best friends as they grow older. Life gets in the way, and before you know it, it’s been years since you last spoke. With that in mind, now could be the best time to dial their numbers. Who knows? Perhaps they’ve suffered from low moods recently too? Reconnecting with the people who were around during your younger years is always a sensible move. You will have a lot to talk about, and you’re guaranteed to enjoy the experience. Some of you might even have children the others have never met!

You should now have enough ideas to assist you in rediscovering the happiness you felt when you were young. Do yourself a favor and make sure you don’t sit around feeling depressed. You need to take decisive action and employ some self-help if you want to turn things around. If you suffer long periods of depression, you should always consult your doctor for advice.

 

Thanks, guys! I’ll see you next time!



Four Easy Ways To Feel Better About Yourself


Self esteem is a struggle that pretty much all young women deal with. We get so many different messages from the media – eat less, eat more, get skinnier, don’t get too thin, don’t be too smart, make sure you get into college, listen to your elders, don’t believe everything you hear – that we get confused and we aren’t sure who exactly we should believe. The only answer is that the best person you can trust is yourself, and that you need to love yourself in this world to get places. Here are some tips to do that…

Get More Informed

The best way to hold your own in any given situation is to be confident in your knowledge. Make sure that you read as much as you can – articles from numerous different publications, books both non fiction and novels, social media, magazines. If you love young adult fiction, challenge yourself to branch out a little and buy a critically acclaimed graphic novel like Persepolis or a literary fiction novel to stretch your brain a little. The more informed you are, the more knowledge that you have in your beautiful head, the better you’ll feel about talking to people.

Spend Time Alone

In order to feel confident it’s important to know that you can spend some time by yourself. No one’s saying that you have to ditch all your friends if you’re a natural extrovert and you love being around people, but it is a good idea to stretch yourself by doing some things by yourself that you wouldn’t usually dream of. If none of your friends want to see the same movie as you, go to the cinema by yourself and treat yourself by buying your favorite cinema snack. If you’re the only person you know who loves art, treat yourself by taking yourself off to a gallery for the afternoon to look around and learn. Being comfortable in your own presence will make you feel happier in the knowledge that other people enjoy your company too.

Change What Makes You Feel Bad

Remember that if there’s something about yourself that you don’t love, you can change it. If you hate your smile, talk to an orthodontist like NW Group Calgary Orthodontics. If you don’t like your weight, talk to a personal trainer and figure out ways that you can start to be healthier. If you’re jealous of the way that other people can do immaculate winged eyeliner, buy a Kat Von D tattoo liner pen and practice by yourself until you can do it too. Remember that you can be whoever you want to be.

Ditch The People Who Don’t Make You Feel Good

Let’s face it, not everyone you know is good for you. If you’ve been dating someone who isn’t as kind to you as they should be, it’s time to take a good hard look at them and consider whether it’s time to break up. You deserve to be surrounded by people who are good to you and who make you feel good about yourself, so if you have any friends who compare themselves to you constantly or who shake your confidence, stop texting them back. There are always more opportunities to make better friends and know better people.
