How To Stay Looking Young Naturally
By Manoj Kapoor
You wake up, as usual, every morning, slap on those layers of make-up, feel you are looking great and step out of your home to face challenges of the day. The self-esteem and confidence freeze when someone in the neighborhood calls you "Aunty". Have the men started heading towards greener pastures and younger girls? You start to wonder when you lost that magic touch. The thought of turning old is demotivating and depressing and you start pondering over, how to look younger naturally.
Jiggle-wiggle heavy thighs and a face full of wrinkles is a nightmare for most people. But this is a natural development process! Onlookers are deeply moved by appearance but as the natural aging process takes over, people start planning on how to stop aging. Their first reaction is to hit the gym to lose unnecessary calories sitting on their hips and waist and then they head to the dermatologists for Botox treatments.
There is a constant struggle to conjure ways on how to stay looking young. Besides creaking knee joints and a hurting backbone, the face also starts to develop ugly deep lines and wrinkles. The complexion becomes dark, the face looks tired and cheeks start to sink in. These changes are gradual but they can be a source of embarrassment for many women. The main reason for losing facial fat and youthfulness is depletion of collagen. Collagen can be consumed orally, but are there any other ways to stay fresh and young side by side:
1. One of the main reasons that spell trouble is stress. Staying constantly strung will lead to physical alterations in the human body that can fasten the aging process. Stress leads to excessive production of cortisol and adrenaline and a person may end up with anxiety issues and depression. The facial lines contort and permanent wrinkles may develop on the face. The heart starts to beat fast and the blood pressure may become erratic. We live in a stressful society and the best way to deal with it is to breathe calmly, meditate and exercise regularly. Relaxation can work miracles on the facial muscles. Take it easy, breathe deeply, recite calmly and take a break!
2. Exercise promotes the blood to rush faster to different parts of the body and is akin to meditation. It's the ideal way to stay fit, healthy and younger looking.
3. Consume Omega-3 fatty acids: Load your diet with walnuts, seeds, and salmon. Your bone strength, mood, and stamina will definitely increase, body inflammation will reduce and you will feel good! You can even introduce shark oil tablets to your diet to get the missing Omega3. Soon you will observe that the excessively dumped fat on the waist and hips will reduce and the body will feel energetic and healthy. Be patient, your face will shine with that special glow!
4. If you can't hit the gym start a regular walk. The muscles will get toned, the body will become lithe and shapely, bones will become stronger and the mood will be boosted. We promise you are going to make new friends when you step out into the fresh air. Not only will your social life get a boost, you will also start smiling more and begin to look younger. If you hate walking you can start a swimming session at the pool or join a dance club.
5. It's time to stop getting bored. People love good company and you always had that magic touch. Besides supplementing yourself orally with collagen, be yourself and let your hair loss. As the collagen plumps up your face, your smile will woo the onlookers. Spill your magic. Let that oxytocin move through your endocrine system and improve your cardiovascular and immune system. We promise you that you will soon be scrambling out of the bed super-fast for some fun moments. Feel young and look young!

What to Do When Cancer Treatment Makes Working Difficult
When you're going through treatment, going to work and your paycheck are probably the last things you want to worry about. Even though you may not feel well enough to work, financially you may need to continue working during cancer treatment. Fortunately, there are options to help you decide how you can adjust your current work schedule.
Finding what works for you
If you and your health care team decide you're able to keep working during cancer treatment, it's important to figure out how you’re going to do it. You and your employer can work closely to make certain changes, such as offering a part-time schedule or restructuring your job. In addition, you can make it easier for yourself by doing the following:
Try to work from home if possible. It's a way to help manage your energy and take care of yourself.
Get help at home so there’s more time for work. Ask your family and friends to help out with daily chores and errands.
Keep your boss up to date on your schedule and how other changes are working.
Make a list of your usual work schedule and responsibilities. Refer to it when you're setting up flex time, shifted duties, or time off with your employer.
Create a list of job duties and who is covering for you, so your coworkers know what to do when you’re out of the office.
For more information on what options you can ask for and what your employer can do to help assist you while on treatment, visit the Job Accommodation Network or call them at 1-800-526-7234.
When it's too much to keep working with cancer
If you find that managing your treatment is making it too hard to work, there are options available from third-party organizations to help with paying your medical and nonmedical bills. These include:
The Hill-Burton Program
This program allows hospitals and other medical facilities to offer free or low-cost services for people who are unable to pay. To find a Hill-Burton facility, or to get more information, visit the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.
Social Security Disability Income
If you have paid Social Security, you may be eligible for disability benefits. But keep in mind Social Security has very strict standards for what they consider a disability and, if you qualify, the waiting period could be up to 5 months or more. To learn more, visit www.ssa.gov/disability/.
Supplemental Security Income
If you haven’t worked in a while or your income has been very low, an option may be Supplemental Security Income (SSI). What you can get from SSI is different from state to state. Your income must be below a certain amount, and you must also meet the Social Security Administration’s standards for disability. Visit www.ssa.gov/disabilityssi/ssi.html to learn more.
As you deal with your employment issues, it helps to be flexible and understand that as your needs change, so can your options with employment. Whether you are working or not, applying for disability benefits and other kinds of support can sometimes be challenging. Consider keeping your family in the loop about your concerns. The social worker at your treatment location can also help you with information about other resources.
7 Factors to Poor Posture and 2 Steps You Can Take Right Now To Better Your Own
By Dr Matthew Bortolussi
Have you ever noticed a famous actor, known for their good looks, maybe Brad Pitt, standing stooped over? Of course not! Part of the appeal is their tall, proud posture, whether you consciously notice or not. Perhaps that's why no childhood is complete without an occasional reminder to "Sit up straight!" Your mom was training you to become a Hollywood star.
While the desire for your own good posture could be due to the effect that poor posture has on your visual appearance, it may surprise you that posture has much more to do with whether you look proper or sloppy. Let's look at another type of celebrity - a singer such as Adele, and try a little experiment on yourself. Sing your favorite song, or the national anthem with your shoulders rounded forward and head stooped down. Your whole chest caves in and prohibits your lungs from expanding and your voice from belting out those big musical notes. It's much harder to sing properly without good posture. Remember Usain Bolt, the fastest human? Do you think he'd run as fast and place as well if he kept his head down?
If you're concerned with your health you should know that the way you carry your body physically can have a major impact on your physical performance and mental sense of well-being. Studies are now showing the connection between poor posture and health problems ranging from weight gain, insomnia, and even depression and mental decline. Chiropractors are well aware of the significance of this connection between posture and health, which makes them a reliable authority on this and how it relies on good spinal health.
There are many causes of poor posture. In some people, unfortunately postural issues are due to other conditions or diseases that involve bone deformity or bone loss, however, in the vast majority of cases, posture is directly related to a person's habits and daily activities. Here are some of the most common causes of poor posture:
Looking down a lot during activities such as using a cellphone or playing video games
Working at a desk or computer for long periods of time (even at a desk with good ergonomics)
Poor ergonomics at work (chairs, desks, keyboards)
Improper sleep support (mattress, pillows)
Poor self-esteem (people with low self-esteem tend to have a flexed/inward posture as a way to avoid being noticed)
As noted, there can be other health conditions and diseases that can contribute to poor posture, but as you can see, most contributors to poor posture are also things that are within your control.
Chiropractors and other health experts have found that people who have a tendency to slouch while standing, sitting, and even walking also tend to experience many kinds of health conditions, which can be mild or even severe. Many health problems such as headaches, muscle stiffness, shortness of breath, susceptibility to infectious illnesses, may actually be indirectly impacted by your posture and the positioning of your spinal column.
Your spine is important because it keeps your entire body in alignment and balance. It also houses and is meant to protect your central nervous system (spinal cord and brain). Your nervous system is responsible for the communication between your body and brain. The better your spinal alignment, the easier it is for your brain and body to share information and maintain good posture. Slouching, and being in poor posture makes it harder for this to happen - signals don't transmit as well and muscles have to work harder to try to keep you upright. This extra, more difficult work can degrade the health of the spine and nervous system over time. When your brain and body need to work harder on your posture, they work less on keeping your other systems and functions working optimally. As this happens to the nervous system, other functions of the body may begin to have trouble working correctly, leading to inflammation, digestive issues, and more.
How To Keep Good Posture All Day Every Day
If you want to avoid these health problems, you'll want to focus on maintaining proper posture as often as you can. It may be as simple as reminding yourself throughout the day to keep your shoulders pulled back, your head held high atop your neck and torso, and your spine in a neutral position as much it can.
If you find it difficult to maintain these positions of proper posture, it is a sign you need the professional help of a chiropractor. Your poor posture can be due to a combination of factors that include poor spinal alignment, poor nervous system signal flow, and muscle weakness. In most cases, these problems can all be corrected with a properly designed and executed plan that addresses all three of these issues as needed.
Do You Have Poor Posture?
Here is a simple test than can be an indicator of poor posture:
Have someone take a picture of you standing without shoes on a flat surface, looking ahead of you. Think of a side profile of a police mug shot, for your whole body, top to bottom. The person will likely have to stand 10-15 feet away.
Draw a straight vertical line from the inside of your ear down to the floor. If the line doesn't pass through the middle of your shoulder, hip, knee and ankle, it's likely you have poor posture.
If you're unsure that you're assessing your posture picture correctly, enlist a friend or family member to do this with you.
