MORNING

Tongue cleaning – 30 seconds

After cleaning your tongue, rinse your mouth with sesame oil, not mouthwash and rinse with warm water. It is rich in linoleic acid and is better for oral hygeine than most cosmetic products available today.
Self massage – 3 minutes
Using raw solf or a soft brush, massage your whole body using 10-20 strokes in this order, neck, back, shoulders hands and fingers using circular motions. Next massage your chest using an upward horizontal movement. Next onto the stomach using left to right movements. Then the thighs, going from the inside to out, then legs and feet.
Massaging the body improves circulation and stimulates and invigorates all the senses and helps the internal organs.

DURING THE DAY

Drink hot water – 30 seconds
Boil half a litre of water for 15 minutes, transfer to a flask and sip in thirds over half an hour. Boiled water eliminates toxins and is better to drink than regular water.
Relax your breathing – 2 minutes
Breathe in deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds and then release, agin through the nose. Do not think about anything else and control on your breathing. Repeat until you feel a sense of relaxation. Concentrating on your breathing can help you forget the stresses of the day and leads to a general sense of calm.

IN THE EVENING

Stimulate your digestion- 2 minutes
Warm a small amount of sesame oil and use to massage into your stomach using circular motions. Soak a towel in hot water and apply to the stomach until it goes cold. This process helps aid digestion and will help you achieve a more restful sleep.

Experts Share What To Do If You Find A Baby Bird On The Ground

Springtime is here, and with it, an influx of sunshine, nests and baby birds. But peppered among the warmer weather is the occasional nasty storm, which can potentially knock baby birds from their nests. The question is, how do you best help a stranded baby bird? While it might be counter-intuitive to leave them on the ground, depending on the baby’s age, doing so might best the best course of action.

The reason some baby birds are on the ground might have nothing to do with a storm at all.

According to RSPCA Wildlife, not all baby birds found on the ground need to be rescued. A lot of bird species, once fledged, will hop around on the ground still being fed by parents for a couple of weeks. Being so, the site asserts that if you find an uninjured baby bird, it’s best to leave it alone and watch it from afar for at least 30 minutes. In that time you will likely see a parent bird come to feed it.

RSPCA, as well as many other wildlife rehabilitation centers, receive many baby birds each year from well-meaning members of the public. The birds they bring in often would have had a better chance of survival had they been left alone in the wild.

As such, raising wild birds in captivity should always be a last resort, the criteria for which is when a baby bird is known to be injured or orphaned. Although it may seem the safer route to raise babies in captivity, birds raised without the advantage of learning from their parents have only a small chance of survival when released. Unless you have the necessary experience, do not attempt to raise a wild baby bird yourself.
Hatchlings and nestlings, however, may need your help getting back into the nest. Contrary to popular belief, the smell of your hands on a baby bird will not cause a parent to abandon it—as it is, birds have a poor sense of smell. But how do you tell if a baby bird needs your help getting into a nest? It’s all in the age:

Three stages of a baby bird:

• Hatchling (usually 0-3 days old)

Its eyes aren’t yet opened.  It may have bits of down on its body. It’s not ready to leave the nest.

• Nestling (usually 3-13 days old)

Its eyes are open, and its wing feathers may look like tubes because they’ve yet to break through their protective sheaths. This baby is also not ready to leave the nest.

• Fledgling (13-14 days old or older)

This baby has full feathers. Its wings and tail may be short, and it may not be great at flying, but it can walk, hop, or flutter. It has left the nest, though its parents may be nearby. You don’t need to worry about getting this little guy back to the nest.  However, to ensure the baby’s continued safety, you should make sure your cats, dogs and curious children are kept indoors.
It’s important to note that some birds nest on the ground.  The baby’s nest might have also dropped to the ground, in which case you can return the baby and the nest to the tree.  However, what do you do if you find a hatchling or nestling and there is no nest in sight? You can create a makeshift nest.  Put the baby or babies inside of it, and secure it up in a tree. If the baby is injured or you’re still not sure what to do, contact your local wildlife rehabilitation center.

Dear Husband, 12 Things I Want You To Know

What do women want? Well, this seems to be an enigmatic question haunting the men species for centuries now. There are certain expectations that most women have in general. Perhaps knowing them could make guys’lives easier? Well, you never know! So, listen up all you guys, here are a few things that girls want from their guys after marriage. These are simple expectations not hard for you to fulfill. Be assured your life will be so much at peace. Curious much? Read on to know 12 things that all women, including me, want their husbands to know. Shall we begin?


1. Be nice to my family

When I agree to give my kid your family name, the least expected of you is to actually behave like you belong to my family too. A little bit of involvement in my family events, festivals, a get-together with cousins and a good rapport with my siblings is all I expect from you. In return, you can expect some pampering from your in-laws and me of course (wink, wink).

2. Share household chores

You know how difficult it is juggling home and work. So, how about lending a helping hand in the household chores? We could probably divide the responsibilities, so neither of us is overworked. Whatsay? I understand you were a spoilt brat and were not of much help to your mommy. But your mom will be proud of me forteaching you all the survival skills for life.

3. Retail therapy

I know how boring it is for you to sit outside the trial room gaping at all the girls walking in and out of the room while I try on clothes and come out to seek your approval. Yeah, agreed. But wouldn’t you love to check out what looks best on me? And, where will you get another chance to have all the beautiful girls moving around you?

 4. Transparency

Got a boy’s night out? Fine. I know I want you around all the time and hate you leaving me alone. But, I understand you need your me time. So, instead of lying to me about a fake meeting with a non-existent client at a godforsaken place, please be truthful about your plans. I appreciate knowing it from you rather than later from someone else. Same holds true for saving your ex’s name in someone else’s name. Honesty always pays and earns appreciation.

 5. Special days

No, I don’t expect you to remember the day we met, the first time we kissed or the day my dog peed on you. But forgetting birthdays and anniversaries are inexcusable. To make it easier for you, I have added my birthdate (not the year and you know why!) and anniversary to my Facebook account so you should get a reminder. And if not all my cousins, remembering my parents’ anniversary and birthdays will do. If you are forgetful, please store them on a digi diary. And yeah, I, on my part too, will never forget special days of people who matter to you.

6. Cuddle

No, it doesn’t have to be a very intimate moment all the time. Even holding hands, a warm hug or putting your hand over my shoulder would comfort me to a great extent and make me feel nice and secure. No puppy love this, these are basic gestures to show that you care for me.

 7. Soulmate

Yes, I have a big list of friends who I can count on and turn to for any kind of advice and suggestions. But the first person I would like to confide in my apprehensions and thoughts would be you. Remember, we exchanged wedding vows to share everything in sickness and health. So, be it in practice too. I would very much like it if you took a proactive interest in my career, life, and struggles.

 8. Compliments

I may not be a beauty queen and may not look picture perfect all the time. But you should be the last person to take a jibe at my looks. Remember, you are married to me, so I expect you to stand by me even if I look terrible that day. Don’t forget that a mirror is a girl’s best friend and I have spent hours to get this look. Even a simple ‘This dress suits you’ would do.

 9. Love me for who I am

Yes, I take hours to get ready, own a room full of clothes and shoes, and can finish off a huge chunk of pizza all my myself. But that shouldn’t change your opinion of me. I know you sleep with your mouth open, can’t stop snoring all night, and gulp down noodles like there’s no tomorrow. Am I judging you?

 10. Be there by my side when needed

There are times you have to take sides, and I very much expect you to be on my side, backing me. I know your family is important to you, but so should I be.I won’t feel like an outsider.

 11. Emotional support

There are times I badly need you – that’s when you have to be there for me. Being emotionally available will only strengthen our relationship.

 12. Pamper me

I love surprises – a box of my favorite chocolates, a cuddly soft toy, a long drive to watch the sunset or even a candlelight dinner at home set up by you…anything would do. But don’t give me shocks, if you need help with the microwave or cooking, please ask your mom.
So, that was my wish list. Have anything more to add, ladies? Feel free to write back by commenting in the box below. Would love to hear your views.

8 Things That Are Truly A Waste Of Your Time

  1. Watching TV.
  2. Being in a relationship with someone just because you feel bored or lonely.
  3. Trying to solve everyone’s problems.
  4. Trying to win every conversation that you have with people.
  5. Doing something just because it makes others happy while you’re unhappy.
  6. Constantly complaining about something that you could have already changed.
  7. Creating fake problems so that you don’t have to deal with your real problems.
  8. Trying to make someone love you when they are not interested in you.
In addition, I think not appreciating the moment is also a waste of time. When you are focused on what you should have done, what you should do, or how it is supposed to be, you are wasting your time. You can’t change what you didn’t do, no matter how much you beat yourself up about it. But you can take action on what you want right now. Don’t wait for the right person to do the things you want to do, what guarantee is there that you will find that person? Don’t leave this world with a wasted life. Make the most out of each moment and ensure it adds to your life in some way.

HOW TO HEAL YOUR EMOTIONAL WOUNDS IN 5 STEPS

In the course of our life, we have collected a number of emotional and psychological trauma in conflicts with other people. These emotional and psychological traumas are parts of our past, and they are often unconscious. Their effects are, however, real: usually these emotional and psychological traumas are in the background of the fluctuation of our emotions, negative moods and the–often apparently unexplainable–emotional outbursts.


These moods may easily take control over our behavior, inveigling us into actions that we later regret or are ashamed of. Is it possible to heal these emotional and psychological traumas, and if yes, how? We are able to cure the psychological traumas through a process of five steps.
Step 1: Understanding
In the process of healing, the first step is the most important, since understanding is essential for a real change. During our life, we often tell others–or ourselves–that, ”I know how I should behave, but I cannot do it. I know what is right, and I still do something else again and again. I am simply unable to change.” The point is that it is in itself not sufficient to know how to behave properly.
Knowledge and real
comprehension are two different things. For a real change, thorough comprehension is required.
We need to understand that in the background of our apparently unchangeable patterns of behavior, there are our mental wounds, acquired in the past. These mental wounds have by now sunk into the unconscious. Unlike the physical wounds on our body, these mental wounds never heal.
The patterns of behavior fueled by our mental wounds are self-sustaining. For instance, we are apprehensive of our boss because (s)he talked us in a superior way in front of our colleagues. Then, after a while, the apprehension fades away, and we believe that our anger is gone.
But our anger has not really vanished; for a while it had been conscious, but then it sunk in to the unconscious, to the depths of our soul. That is where it is waiting for its turn, to emerge to the surface again. It may not have to wait long, as when we return home from work, the behavior of our wife or children might trigger the re-appearence of the anger. We supply new strength, new intensity to our wrath, sustain it, and it will re-surface again and again in the rest of our life.
Step 2: Taking Responsibility
When we become angry about something or someone, we believe that the anger belongs to us, it is a part of our Ego. We then try to find some excuse for our behavior. Our most common explanation is that our anger was caused by the other person, or that it was the only possible behavior in the situation concerned. In this way, we reject responsibility, blame it on our environment, we try to find a scapegoat to blame for our behavior which is unacceptable even for ourselves.

In the first step we realized that anger is caused by our mental injuries, the environment only provides a framework for that anger to charge itself with energy and break to the surface in us.
We shall only be able to achieve a real change in that respect if we realize that our grief, unhappiness, jealousy or anger, and our behavior related to these emotions, are almost always the consequences of some internal wound.
We must therefore cease trying to find excuses for our behavior all the time. We must take responsibility for our anger or unhappiness, and be aware that those are the products our our mental injuries.
Steps 3: Experience, Empathy
So as to be able to heal our internal wounds, we must become alert, and we must recognize the patterns of behavior that are rooted in internal wound, and we must shoulder the responsibility for that behavior.
When sadness, unhappiness, jealousy or anger crop up again in our lives, we should not turn our attention to our environment, in search of a reason for our behavior dictated by the negative emotions.
Instead, concentrate on the specific emotion itself. For example, if we feel anger, let us experience that to the full. Let us completely see and experience what that emotion is like.
Step 4: Return
Once we have experienced the emotions of sorrow, unhappiness, jealousy or anger to the full, let us try to return to the past and find the root core of those emotions, the original internal wound that fuels that particular emotion. We might find a number of small wounds, but do not stop at the first one, try to dig deep and reveal the first wound. Examine how and under what circumstances that particular internal wound was made. We will be able to accomplish that, since our past is there with us, it exists in there, only unconsciously. We now intentionally bring those wounds to the light of Conscience.
The mental injury will open up for us. There is nothing we should do with that inner wound. All we need to do is be alert, watch with all our attention. We must not allow the Mind to start working in us, making judgments about the situation in which we received the wound. If the Mind begins to work, the process of blaming the responsibility on others will never cease, and the mental wound will never be healed in us. What is more, it will become even worse.
Whenever we have the opportunity, at the time of sadness, unhappiness, jealousy or anger, we should go back to our past. In this way we will be more and more experienced in detecting the mental wounds in the background of our negative emotions and unacceptable behaviour.
Step 5: Recovery
Let us watch in an alert state and without making judgments how a particular mental wound was made in us. By watching and being alert, we will recognize the conditioned patterns of the Mind, and that is the only way of disrupting them. We close down the past, and the way for real chances will open up.
When we consciously return to our own past, and look at a mental wound with full alertness, this alertness and Consciousness will turn into a healing force. An inner wound was not healed before because it had been made in ignorance and it remained there because of the lack of our alertness. The light of Consciousness is a remedy, it heals our mental injuries without us having to do anything else for the recovery.
When the alert Consciousness reaches a mental wound, the wound will be healed, it vanishes and disappears. With the disappearance of the wound the pattern of behaviour generated by that particular wound will also disappear. That is the beginning of real changes in our life, since not only our behavior changes, but we also return to one of the elementary qualities of our life: the alert, conscious attention. That attention will save us from suffering further mental wounds. That is how we slowly arrive at the gateway leading to a life of entirely new quality.

THIS Is What Your Birth Date Reveals About You!

 According to the field of numerology, numbers carry distinct characteristics. As one numerology theory goes, the number that represents your birthday plays a key role in determining your personality. As with the zodiac theory of personality, this takes into account birth month as well. Interestingly enough, it also takes into account birth year.
To figure out what this means for you, you’ll need to calculate your  life path number. Life path numbers are 1-9, 11, and 22. Write down your birth date in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY. You’ll be adding the digits of these numbers together.
For example, take this birth date – 05/03/1996. To calculate the life path number, we would break this into 0 + 5 + 0 + 3 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 6 = 33.
Because we wound up with a number over 9 that is not 11 or 22, we’ll need to add both digits until we wind up with a single digit, 11 or 22 – whichever comes first. In this case, the single digit 6 comes first; that’s the life path number.
Take a moment, figure out your life path number and then read on to learn its meaning!

Life Path #1

If you arrived at a life path number of 1, you’re likely a very motivated individual. You have grand ambitions that often veer off the beaten path. You like things that way, due to your independent and self-confident nature.

On the negative side, a life path number of 1 often indicates an aggressive and self-centered nature. Try to spend more time helping others.

Life Path #2

If your life path number is 2, you lean towards the cooperative, modest side of things. Your highly empathetic nature does make you come across as overly sensitive sometimes. You likely have a predisposition to indecisiveness and social anxiety – these are two areas you may wish to work on.

Life Path #3

If you calculated a life path number of 3, you’re likely the life of the party! Your artistic, imaginative, expressive and joyful characteristics make you an absolute pleasure to be around most of the time. However, when it comes to deeper social interactions, you have a tendency to display superficial qualities; the simple joys in life often escape you.

Life Path #4

If 4 is your life path number, you’re likely a very practical and organized person. Your interests tend towards the technical side as opposed to the creative. You also tend to be very honest, sometimes brutally so. Your friends and family might complain that you’re too stubborn and inflexible – don’t be afraid to loosen up a little!

Life Path #5

A life number of 5 grants you a very flexible personality. You go with the flow and you’re always ready for a new, exciting adventure. On the negative side, you tend to be disorganized and impatient.

Life Path #6

This life path number means you’re very fair, gracious and protective. Your friends likely see you as the ‘mother’ or ‘father’ of your social group and often come to you for advice on relationships and life in general. At times, however, it could be said that your advice is unsolicited. You also need to pay attention to yourself a bit more instead of trying to fix everyone else’s problems.

Life Path #7

This number definitely pits you as the introverted, thoughtful type. You’re far more likely to be at home listening to music on a Friday night than out at the bar with 10 friends. Your thoughtful nature means you know yourself very well and can take care of yourself emotionally. If you’re not careful, however, you can easily wind up in ‘overthinking’ territory.

Life Path #8

You are definitely a natural business man or woman. You strive for efficiency and plan every decision – big or small. You long for power and status, which can make you come across as overly materialistic at times. Ambition is good but be careful not to let yours take away from time spent with family and friends.

Life Path #9

You donate a good chunk of your earnings to charity, don’t you? A life path number of 9 makes you the humanitarian type. You see all humans as connected and this gives you a burning desire to help those in need even if it means sacrificing your needs and wants.
You’ve got the big picture in mind, and that’s good – but don’t forget to sit down and focus on the little things in life once in a while.

Life Path #11

11 is a ‘master’ number. If this is your life path number, you share characteristics of both 1 and 2. You are an independent, self-confident individual that likes to veer into uncharted territory. At the same time, you have an empathetic, cooperative nature. These traits make you effective at building and leading innovative teams.

Life Path #22

22 is also a ‘master’ number; it shares the characteristics of 2 and 4, combining an intense vision with the practical, detail-oriented nature required to achieve it. That said, these traits can combine to make you come across as overly controlling at times.

So, what did your life path number have to say about you? Was it accurate? Let us know in the comments!

Baby Suffers 2nd Degree Burns From Popular Sunscreen

A mother in Canada is urging other parents to be careful when protecting their children from the sun. Rebecca Cannon says her daughter suffered second-degree chemical burns on her face from a popular suncreen. She is sharing her story on Facebook in hopes of warning other families about the potential dangers of a well-known brand of sunscreen.

Rebecca’s Story


, Rebecca pleaded with other parents to be careful when using aerosol sunscreen. She explained that she purchased Banana Boat Kids SPF50 to protect her 14-month-old daughter when spending time outdoors.

She said, “As the day went on, she got a little redder and redder and the next morning she woke up and was swollen, she was bright red, there were blisters starting to pop up.” Rebecca continued, “We immediately took her up to the doctors and found out she has second degree burns.”

Rebecca acknowledged that she should have used sunscreen specifically made for babies, but she figured that using a child-specific block that was advertised as alcohol-free would protect her daughter against the sun. But the 14-month-old ended up with chemical burns on her face.
Banana Boat responded in a statement by saying, “We are greatly concerned when any person encounters a reaction using out products. We have spoken with the consumer and asked for the product so that our quality assurance team can look into this further. Without examining the product, it is difficult to determine what may have caused the problem as described.”
Rebecca shared her story, along with photos of her daughter’s burns, to prevent the same thing from happening to another family. “I would have never – in a million years – imagined her to get a burn so severe from sunscreen,” she said.
