- Being physically fit and healthy encompasses a lot of things. It involves how you feel, what you feel and your overall health. Physical fitness and health can’t be measured by muscles and abs alone. In fact, those are not the primary measure of health and fitness. Some of the steps are hidden but quite visible in our blood tests, pressure and even cholesterol levels.
Sweating is totally normal. It is our body’s way of cooling us down. We know this. We also know that a great way to lose weight is to step into a sauna and sweat off 11lbs. However, we also know that there is nothing that we say that will make us enjoy sweating. Especially excessive sweating. Urgh. We feel the same about excessive sweating as we do about watching Jersey Shore – it’s tolerable in small doses so long as there is plenty of time between each episode. Otherwise, it is unbearable.
Yes, excessive sweating is annoying. But it goes well beyond that for so many people. It hits our confidence, holds us back at work, makes us embarrassed, and sees us, well, hide a little. That’s not what life’s about. Life is about living confidently and shining bright like the miracle we are.
That’s why finding a way to slow or stop those sweat glands from overworking can be an absolute game-changer. So, to help you on your quest of perspiring less and living more, we have come up with a list of quick tips that could leave you with armpits drier than the Sahara in summer.
Who isn’t frustrated when it comes to having that perfect white smile we could flaunt around?
Every single day, after looking in front of the mirror enjoying that “me” time to brush your teeth; you get to imagine how ads and commercials make celebrities’ teeth whiter without edits. Let’s face it, for a lot of us, pearly whites have become more of a pastel yellow. Diet, age, and bad eating habits may seem to take a toll on our mouths leading to tooth decay and tooth discoloration. Whatever edits we do, even those who take excellent care of their teeth could attest how it may sound impossible to retain tooth color back from when we were younger.
The worst thing is even our teeth need a vacation from toothpaste and tooth whitening products because of its harmful side-effects. Why? Whitening toothpaste has some disadvantages because they don’t primarily whiten your teeth. These products contain an abrasive that grinds away stains on the enamel, making our teeth shine brighter. Here’s a thing: regular harsh use could make your teeth an avenue to get stained more easily—leading to dulling of veneers and crowns.

Here are just a few things to consider while you’re in the process of losing weight.

Eating healthy is often harder than it’s cracked up to be, and one of the things that often happens when people try to transition to a healthy diet from an unhealthy one is that they start spending way more money. However, this isn’t necessarily due to the cost of the food itself, but mainly because they do not yet know how to optimize a healthy diet correctly and get the best bang for their buck when they’re actually shopping and cooking.
I’ve been there in the past, so I know exactly what that feels like. When I first started eating healthy, I distinctly remember spending at least $200 more on average per week on all my food. I was really frustrated with this, so I started asking for advice from people that have been doing this for a while and really trying to save as much as I could. And within two weeks, I had dropped from the mentioned $200 extra to just about $30.
Today, I want to talk about the six ways in which I did this, and how you can do it too!
Natural hair care is something that is very complex, especially for someone just beginning their natural hair journey. When I first became natural two years ago, I was overly excited about trying different products. I grabbed as many moisturizers, shampoos, and gels I could buy! I know that we all get very excited about our journey and want to see exactly which products work best for us. Unfortunately, the many products that we use over time can potentially stunt hair growth. I’ve learned that simplicity works wonders for your hair. After one year, of course, I had hair growth despite me using tons of products. Although my hair grew, I knew that there could have been better growth overall. So I decided to change my hair care routine to a more minimalist one. I used one conditioner, one oil, and one shampoo. Knowing my staple products I always used and stuck to them. The same three products for the next year of my journey. The results were amazing! I was able to retain much more length than before. I am going to give you my tips on how I retain length and keep healthy hair, simply.
Everyone has days when they can’t stop fiddling with their clothes. A label on your t-shirt is rubbing you, your bra strap is digging into your shoulder, or your shoes are pinching your toes. A lot of the time, these are just small inconveniences that you can eventually ignore. You might just be having a bad day, so you notice small things that you normally wouldn’t. But there are other occasions when your clothes could be hurting you more seriously, and perhaps even causing long-term damage. You need to be careful about some things if you don’t want your clothes to hurt you.
