How to Recognize Early Signs of Circulation Problems (Which Are Common Even in Young People)

The symptoms of blood circulation problems may have several different causes.

Most often causes are the thickening and hardening of the arteries and the peripheral arterial disease.
Nowadays, poor blood circulation appears to thrive. Especially among the young people. This comes as a surprise because it was believed that poor blood circulation is a condition typical for older people. Young people often develop the unhealthy eating habits and the lack of any physical activity. This plays a key role in the appearance of the blood circulation problems.
Here are 10 signs that you may suffer from poor blood circulation.

1. Leg Pain

A common symptom of poor circulation is a pain in the legs. It appears as muscle cramps or pain in the hip when you are walking, climbing stairs or running. This is a condition called intermittent claudication and it’s a sign of peripheral arterial disease.

2. Numbness and Weakness

If you feel numbness or weakness in hands or in your feet while you’re active or at rest, then you may have poor blood circulation. If these symptoms come suddenly and if they are accompanied by a difficulty to speak or weakness in the muscles of the face, you may have poor blood circulation in the brain. Poor circulation in the arteries which are supplying the brain with blood can cause a stroke.

3. Coldness and Swelling

If you feel your hands or your legs cold all the time without any apparent reason, this may be also a poor blood circulation sign. Circulation problems can produce coldness in the hands or feet. You may also notice that your limbs are swelled due to poor circulation, especially your legs.

4. Wounds cannot heal

Another poor circulation sign, especially in the legs, is the presence of wounds on the feet that do not seem to heal. You may also notice infections on your feet which seem to last forever.

5. Change of skin color

Poor circulation can cause changes in skin color in the hands and feet. If you notice that your skin looks blue this is because the blood does not carry oxygen properly in your limbs.

6. Weak pulse in your legs

Poor blood circulation can be caused by atherosclerosis. This condition makes your pulse weak in your feet. When the pulse is absent or weak, it means that there is not or there is little blood flow to these areas of your body. The most common method used by physicians to control the problem of blood flow is to check the pulse in your leg or groyne.

7. Chest Pain

If you feel chest pain or angina, as well as other heart attack symptoms, you may have poor blood circulation in the arteries around your heart. In this case, you should see your doctor immediately to prevent a potentially life-threatening problem.

8. Ulcers of the lower limbs

Ulcers are certain points of the skin which are causing inflammation and where a rash is generated. Somebody with blood circulation problems can notice these inflammations to start growing on their feet. Look for dry, red spots of different sizes on the skin.

9. Phlebitis

The valves of the heart are pumping blood. If they are not working properly, then the blood accumulates in the legs and increases the pressure on small blood vessels. This causes the veins just below the skin surface to twist and bulge. You may notice pain after long periods of seating or standing or random itching during the day. Varicose veins occur more often in the lower parts of legs and ankles.

10. Hair loss and weak nails

One of the clearest signs that your body is not getting the right amount of nutrients is the effect on hair and nails. The hair can become dry, begin to thin and create spots on the scalp. Your skin can become much drier and starts itching. The nails tend to be much weaker and can break easily.

How to treat or prevent blood circulation problems

Problems with poor blood circulation are usually treated with medication. However, it is always better to take a more natural approach if the condition is allowing it. Official medicine approach can be effective but it has numerous side effects and in most cases, these methods don’t treat the real cause.
The change of lifestyle will greatly help in most of the cases. There are four great herbs which have been proven to have a positive effect on poor blood circulation: These herbs are cayenne, garlic, Ginkgo Biloba, and ginger.
It’s necessary to eat more fruits and vegetables and include more fibre-rich foods to your diet. Keeping yourself hydrated is a must, so increase the intake of fresh water to 8 glasses per day. Try to avoid coffee and tea which contain caffeine and theine. Alcohol is a big enemy to this condition. Try to avoid it. Other treatments and holistic approach include the acupuncture and acupressure. There are also hydrotherapies which have great results. Some people find yoga and stretching exercises very helpful.

10 Spiritual Symbols You MUST Know

Spiritual Symbols

Spiritual symbols are everywhere in our world!
In fact they’re so pervasive, it’s almost hard to distinguish- and know- about them all.
Luckily, we’ve done the work for you.


Hamsa

Hamsa is the Hebrew word meaning “five”, and is represented with a palm-shaped amulet and an eye in the middle of the palm.
Used by many societies throughout history, it’s purpose is to ward off negative energy and the “evil eye”, a malicious stare that’s said to cause unluckiness, illness, or even death.
Many religions have used this symbol for their own purposes, including Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Popular indeed!

The Flower of Life

This symbol could be considered king in sacred geometry!
Said to contain all the patterns of creation in it, the Flower of Life is possibly the most ancient symbol on this list, used since the time of the Sumerians (the first civilization in the world).
Composed of seven overlapping, evenly spaced circles, the figure forms a flower-like pattern that’s structured like a hexagon.
The Egyptians, Romans, Celtic Christians, and even Leonardo da Vinci all believed there was something very special about this symbol.

Yin Yang

Used extensively in Chinese teachings, this symbol represents the harmony of the universe.
All duality- no matter how dark or light, masculine or feminine- provides needed balance.
It’s said that balance between these two opposing forces brings the most harmony to an individual’s life.

Pentagram

Often misunderstood and sometimes labelled as “satanic”, the pentagram symbolizes the qualities of man.
The top point represents spirit, while the other points represent the four elements.
Wiccans heavily use this symbol in sacred ceremonies to remind themselves of the nature of humankind.

Dharma Wheel

The Wheel of Dharma, or the “Wheel of Law”, is the Buddhist symbol for teachings of the path of Nirvana.
Each spoke represents a step in Buddha’s Eightfold Path.
Interestingly, it’s older than Buddhism itself, dating back to 2500 B.C.

Star of David

It’s almost impossible to be alive today and not have seen The Star of David!
Most people believe it symbolizes the shield King David used in battle.
However, there is another theory about this popular hexagon: the representation of 6 directions in space.
Up, down, east, west, north, south, and most importantly, center (as in mankind’s spiritual center).
There are many other interpretations of the symbol, with some claiming it represents sacred geometry.

Om

Om is the mother of all mantras, and the primordial sound by which the universe was created.
Used in Hinduism since its inception, Om could be considered the primary symbol of that great religion.
It’s said that deep meditation naturally brings this sound to the forefront, enveloping the practitioner in a universal glow.

Christian Fish

The fish of Christianity was used in the early days of the religion as a secret way to tell others they followed the teachings of Christ.
So why the fish?
Several prominent stories of the apostles were of fishing, with Jesus telling them “I will make you fishers of men”.
Interestingly, it originally came from the Pagan religion, and represented fertility, birth, and the natural force of women.


Eye of Horus

Used in ancient Egypt, the Eye of Horus was often used as an amulet to give safety, health, and wisdom to the wearer.
The story goes that the god Horus (the god of the sun and the moon) lost his eye during battle, at which point it was restored by the god Thoth.
This eye was the moon, which seemingly disappears during its cycle.

Lotus Flower

Used in various eastern religions, the lotus is widely regarded as a representation of enlightenment.
This beautiful flower rises from the sludge of muddy waters, which reinforces the concept of resurrection.
This is the ultimate trajectory of humanity, and shows that any trial can be overcome through perseverance.

7 Negative Behaviors You Need to Ignore

“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” – Proverbs 4:23
Nearly every religion tells us that our beliefs determine our behavior. People, even during ancient times when these divine guidebooks were created knew that one’s life is a reflection of how they think. Nowadays, most of us would concur with the passage above. In fact, nearly every religion has a similar passage, demonstrating the uniformity around this belief.
How our thought process is developed is a truly complex topic. It can be simply stated that the process develops in accordance with a number of internal and external factors. As such, we develop various behaviors both positive and negative. People that go through difficult situations in life have their thought process impacted. In turn, this impacts the person’s behavior.
It is important to differentiate the behaviorfrom the person. We believe that a person is greater than the sum of his or her parts. We also believe that pain is often expressed in the form of negative behavior. Further, it is important to understand that ignoring the entire person is not the answer. Instead, develop your inner strength by ignoring the behavior while doing something positive for the person – prayer, a smile, positive energy, etc.

HERE ARE 7 NEGATIVE BEHAVIORS OF PEOPLE THAT YOU SHOULD IGNORE, AND HOW YOU CAN HELP THEM…

1. DRAMA

Human beings have a flair for the dramatic. We have a flair for the dramatic because drama is everywhere around us – TV, magazines, movies, news, radio, the internet…no matter the outlet, drama is likely to be present.
This overwhelming presence of drama being depicted has resulted in people becoming literally addicted to the behavior. This dramatic behavior is shown in a number of different ways in a number of different places. The co-worker that stirs up rumors, the friend that loves to gossip, the boss that demeans employees, even the spouse or significant other that feels argument is “healthy expression”.
Regardless of the source or severity, dramatic behavior is overwhelmingly negative. Instead of buying into this behavior when it’s directed towards you, conduct yourself with confidence and composure. The stronger the behavior, the more relaxed and positive you should be in response.
Be an example by communicating and expressing yourself peacefully. Don’t allow drama to negatively impact the person you know that you are.

2. NAYSAYING

There is only one person that knows your capabilities and what you can achieve – you. Any kind of behavior directed towards you that aims to demean these capabilities and what you intend to achieve should be resisted to the utmost.
Denying or opposing your ambition through naysaying behavior should be considered unacceptable. Never allow the negative and unsubstantiated claims of others to limit how you think about and approach your ambitions, goals and dreams.
This behavior manifests itself in other people’s opinions, presumptions, and other shunning words and actions about something you’re trying to accomplish. Simply put, never buy into this behavior.
Maybe you’ve been in this type of situation. It is important to look beyond this behavior and act confidently and positively in spite of it. Not only will you notice that your confidence is strengthened, but the guilty party will likely change their behavior as well.

3. MANIPULATION

Some people are always on the lookout for others that they can use to advance their agenda, whatever that may be, through whatever means possible. This is manipulative behavior in a nutshell.
People that attempt to manipulate often do so by playing on other people’s emotions. They generally don’t trust the logical capabilities of others and seek to “pull the wool over” their eyes. Truly a sad state, but this type of behavior exists.
There is no easy way to detect this behavior, but one way is to look at the person’s track record. Have they been caught in a lie with you or someone else? Do they have a generally negative attitude? Have they spread rumors or gossiped about someone? Do they display predominantly individualistic types of behaviors?
Generally, people that display manipulative behavior display these and other “red flags” that can potentially unveil their capability to manipulate. These individuals also have an egotistical streak, thinking that they are smarter and craftier than anyone else.
Be aware of manipulative behavior by remaining vigilant in your dealings with others. Remain positive and confident while sending positivity and encouragement to these types of individuals. This could be the difference in changing their perspective along with their behavior.

4. STUBBORNNESS

Refusing to listen to others opinion, being adamant that their ideas or desires are the most important, and refusing change are the defining characteristics of stubborn behavior. The truth is that we all display stubborn behavior at times. However, there are people that display this behavior at a magnitude that far exceeds the norm.
As with most other behavioral traits, stubbornness is developed through early negative experiences. Stubbornness can be acquired through a parent’s disposition, violations of trust, and other instabilities displayed throughout childhood.
Regardless of the unfortunate circumstances in which the behavior is acquired, stubbornness is difficult to deal with and comes in many forms – the co-worker that refuses to listen, the parent that constantly judges, or in others who refuse to give you the benefit of the doubt.
The solution is to simply be you around these individuals while directing positivity (in any form) towards them. Above all, don’t respond with any kind of stubborn behavior of your own. Instead, show that you are a trustworthy, compassionate, understanding individual who appreciates the positive things about them.

5. IMPATIENCE

Impatience can be defined as (1) irritable behavior that results from delays or (2) a restless need for change and excitement. The display of impatient behavior is often tied into someone’s goals; specifically, anything that hinders or aggravates the person in active pursuit of these goals. These goals could range from getting ahead of you at the drive-thru to getting that promotion at work.
As with stubbornness, we all have the tendency to be impatient at times. However, there are some individuals that take impatience to the extreme. These individuals detest being held up at anytime, anywhere, for almost any reason.
Impatience is a trait that develops from early negative experiences, misunderstanding the nature of self and others, and a persistent sense of insecurity. The early negative experiences often happen during childhood. In many cases, the child was often barred from having a normal social experience resulting in a sense of “missing out”.
When dealing with an impatient person, it is important to understand how they “tick.” For example, these individuals prefer to be in control. When they are not in firm control, they become angry, annoyed and frustrated. The best way to deal with the behavior is to be polite but direct. Do not beat around the bush with impatient people; this will get you nowhere.
Direct positivity towards impatient people, but do so in an assertive way while standing up for yourself. Have you ever heard the term “firm but fair?” This certainly applies to dealing with the impatient.

 6. ANNOYANCE

Annoyance is simply the state of being irritated or angered by the actions or behavior of someone else. Being irritated or angered by someone also causes the annoyed person to be distracted, which only adds to the annoyance factor; effectively increasing the possibility of a heated exchange. In this way, annoying behavior is a double-edged sword.
Whether or not a certain behavior is annoying is often a matter of perspective. Some people will find a certain behavior annoying while others will not. Do you have one or more “pet peeves?” Well, most people do not have the same reactions when encountering these behaviors. Annoying behavior is very subjective, which makes sense considering the person has absolutely no idea that their behavior is annoying in most cases.
The best way to deal with any behavior that annoys you is to simply control your emotions. Take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and focus on breathing normally. Understand that the annoying behavior is likely not directed towards you.
You can also practice using one word to set in your mind until the desire to react passes. For example, relax your body, close your eyes and think of the word “calm.” Repeat this word while imagining calm flow through your body from head to toe.
At times, you may need to stand up for yourself. Of course, do so privately and politely, but be firm and direct. Show appreciation for the person, even before the individual agrees to change their behavior. Doing so will drastically increase the likelihood that the behavior will change – at least around you!

7. SELF-CRITICISM

Last, but certainly not least, is our own inner critic. Just as the above six behavioral characteristics of others does not necessarily define them, your biggest critic doesn’t necessarily define you.
What you consider flaws are actually marks of individuality. Many of whom we would consider the most beautiful, wealthiest, most privileged people on this planet are incredibly lonely and depressed. Why? Simple – they are always their worst critic despite of these “advantages.” Perfectionism is a myth; there is nothing perfect…and this certainly includes us.
While the previous six behaviors may be difficult to contend with, they don’t hold a stick to self-criticism. It is crucial that you take care of yourself, ignore negative thoughts (“tabloids of the mind”), and accept yourself for who you are.

Stephen Hawking’s Beautiful Message For Anyone With Depression

Stephen Hawking has one of the greatest minds of our time. He is well known for his work in theoretical physics, and was born on January 8, 1942, (300 years after the death of Galileo) in Oxford, England. As a young child, he wanted to study mathematics, but once he began college, he studied Natural Sciences. Then, during his first year in Cambridge at the age of 21, Hawking began to have symptoms of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Doctors gave him two and a half years to live.
Now, at the age of 74, he continues to teach, research, and provide the world with beautiful messages. He says that his expectations were reduced to zero when he was given the ALS diagnosis. Ever since then, every aspect of his life has been a bonus.
One of the most brilliant minds did not allow these life challenges to stop him. He continued studying. Hawking has twelve honorary degrees. He has dedicated his life to finding answers about the universe, the Big Bang, creation and scientific theories. He cannot speak or move, bounded to a wheelchair, but he has found ways to inspire the world, encouraging us to find the mysticism in the stars. He says:
“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. If you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
Recently during a lecture in January at the Royal Institute in London, Hawking compared black holes to depression, making it clear that neither the black holes or depression are impossible to escape. “The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up; there’s a way out,” he said.
When asked about his disabilities, he says: “The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.” He continues with an inspiring message about disabilities:
“If you are disabled, it is probably not your fault, but it is no good blaming the world or expecting it to take pity on you. One has to have a positive attitude and must make the best of the situation that one finds oneself in; if one is physically disabled, one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well. In my opinion, one should concentrate on activities in which one’s physical disability will not present a serious handicap. I am afraid that Olympic Games for the disabled do not appeal to me, but it is easy for me to say that because I never liked athletics anyway. On the other hand, science is a very good area for disabled people because it goes on mainly in the mind. Of course, most kinds of experimental work are probably ruled out for most such people, but theoretical work is almost ideal.
My disabilities have not been a significant handicap in my field, which is theoretical physics. Indeed, they have helped me in a way by shielding me from lecturing and administrative work that I would otherwise have been involved in. I have managed, however, only because of the large amount of help I have received from my wife, children, colleagues and students. I find that people in general are very ready to help, but you should encourage them to feel that their efforts to aid you are worthwhile by doing as well as you possibly can.”
Stephen Hawking does not only encourage the scientific minds to pay attention, but inspires the rest of us to take notice that there is connection between the stars and each one of us. His disabilities have not stopped his curious mind and sense of wonder.
His daughter, Lucy, shared with the crowd at the lecture, “He has a very enviable wish to keep going and the ability to summon all his reserves, all his energy, all his mental focus and press them all into that goal of keeping going. But not just to keep going for the purposes of survival, but to transcend this by producing extraordinary work writing books, giving lectures, inspiring other people with neurodegenerative and other disabilities.”
