Refreshing Our Minds

Our life is full of experiences, trials, problems, happiness, sadness that sometimes we feel that we are burden by it. Those that are working a 9-5 work at the office then it turn will be a wife/husband and mother/ father to their family once they got home can be stressful. I have a friend who juggles her office career and home life every day.

We all know that problems and excessive stress in our lives can make us sick literally. Doing things all the time can be boring as well so we need to know how to freshen our minds. Pausing from work from time-to-time can be helpful. Stretching can be beneficial as well. Listening to music can be very helpful. You can listen to calming music if you want to rest.. pop in dance music if you want to groove or play your fave musical instrument if you have time. It’s never to late to learn any musical instrument as well like trying out a gibson es 137 electric guitar to bring out the rocker in you.

You can take on a hobby like writing, croeheting, photography and more. Whatever you feel like doing just to keep you relax will do good.

Finding A Dentist

Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is important for the oral health of the entire family. Offices like Park Slope Family Dentistry can provide care for both adults and children. This is sometimes a benefit so that children can see what happens during a dental visit before getting the teeth cleaned and examined.

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to finding a dentist for the family. Ask if the office will submit an insurance claim or if you need to complete the paperwork. You also need to find out if the office will accept payments or if there is any kind of insurance that the office offers for those who aren’t covered.

Talk to the dentist before making a decision to allow the office to treat your family. All members should be comfortable with the dentist and the staff. If you have any concerns about the office and the work that is provided, then it’s best to look for another dentist. You might have to look outside of your city to find an office that you like. Ask friends and family about the dentist they visit as they will likely give an honest review compared to some of the reviews that you might read online.

Make sure the office is located in an area that is convenient to get to either from home, work or school. You don’t want to travel to an area where you don’t plan on visiting just to see the dentist. You can usually find an office near a school or near other medical offices, making it easy to combine appointments if you or your children see a doctor in the same area.

Talk to the staff about any promotions for new patients or if there are any ways that the dentist shows appreciation for current patients, such as discounts on treatments or a monthly drawing for a prize. This shows that the office cares about the patients who visit, ensuring that they have the proper dental care to keep the mouth healthy while developing a relationship with each person.

Cancer Research and Development

Every time I hear the word “cancer”, I can’t help myself feel sad and afraid at the same time. We all know that the big “C” of any organs in our body is one of the leading causes of death around the world and it’s very alarming already. I have already lost 2 of my aunts (father side) to breast cancer and one of my cousins is also diagnosed with breast cancer few years back. It was devastating to hear about that news and she has gone several operations and chemotherapy and I know how hard and painful it is for the body and financial wise. I just heard that she is now in remission and the good thing is that she’s keeping a positive vibes and hopes about it.

Now, that I learned that breast cancer runs in our family, I can’t help but to feel worried as well. I still don’t have the courage to go to the doctor and have my breast check if there is a lump. I know that self breast examination can also help in detection but you see, fear is making me not to do that as well. I know it’s not a good thing to do but oh well, I’m just afraid to know. I’m sure in the coming days I’ll have an appointment with my doctor.

Anyway, I’m just wishing that there will be more medical breakthroughs in the coming years especially now that a lot of equipment or gadgets are getting more high-tech. Researchers are also doing their best to find all the cure for all types of cancers or diseases. cureLauncher helps in the research, discovery and development of drugs and to find cure for cancer and other diseases that can help all suffering patients. We can always help in our own little way and it we can always donate to cancer research that can help them continue what they are doing. In fact, they have been testing a new drug that can cure lumps or tumors of breast cancer patients that already spread in the brain.

Like we always hear, early detection of any disease is always the best for there is a big chance that it will be healed.

Objectophilia – Romantically in Love with Objects

When i first learned about this condition, I was in disbelief, I didn’t know that this exist!

OBJECTOPHILIA – (Wikipedia) Object sexuality or objectum sexuality, in German Objektophilie (OS), is a pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects. Those individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation.

For some, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible. Some object-sexual individuals also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, and feelings, and are able to communicate. Contrary to sexual fetishism, the object to an OS person is viewed as their partner and not as a means to an end to enhance a human sexual relationship.

Killing Our Feet Everday

feet

Aren’t we thankful for our hands and feet? They help us do anything in our everyday routine. Just imagine all the weight and pressure that our feet carry everyday that sometimes we tend to forget to take good care of them. We often subject our feet to danger by wearing uncomfortable, ill-fitting shoes  or shoes that give very little support and cushion that can harm our feet and eventually our health.

I feel guilty at times for there are  occasions that I wear close shoes that often hurt my toes and heels. I don’t wear high-heel shoes but I have some flat shoes that often results in pain in my heels when I use it for long period of time.  Arghhh.. it’s painful.  I believe the condition that I’m having is called plantar fasciitis.  I learned that using an insole is one of the plantar faciitis heel pain relief that I can use to minimize the pain that I am having. I have to look into this. Other conditions that we can get when wearing uncomfortable shoes are corns, bunions, hammer toes, clubfoot, fractures and more.

Wearing high-heel shoes may look so sexy and elegant but some women didn’t know that it can cause  cause severe hammertoes, pain on the ball of the foot and other pains if you use them everyday for long hours. Ouuuchhh! It is recommended that we need to wear shoes of different heights so that our feet can also relax.
