Your wisdom and confidence may grow as you get older, but at the same time this isn’t true for your hormone levels. Often women over 50 hit menopause that causes many changes to their skin. The body stops making as much collagen, hence you lose fat under the skin and also lose elasticity of the skin. Combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, it can cause sagging around the cheeks, jaw line and the neck and wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and lines above the upper lip. Menopausal women have low levels of estrogen that have a big impact on their skin. Lower estrogen levelsmake them prone to thinning, wrinkling and sagging. Luckily, you can relieve some aging effects of skin by taking care of specific skin care needs.

As humans, we are blessed with the ability to master mobility and take part in physical activity. Our bodies are a miracle of evolution which allow us to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, many people take that for granted and let themselves gain too much weight. That, or they don’t nourish themselves with the necessary vitamins and other important nutrients. This, of course, causes the onset of other health issues.
I don’t want to make it sound like I’m going to point fingers at everyone else. In fact, I used to be someone who took his body for granted. Actually, I prefer to say that I abused my body. Alcohol addiction was a disease I fought from a very young age. If you can imagine, the first time I ever got drunk was at the age of 9.
The problem was that I continued drinking well into my early teens, and then eventually experimented with other drugs as well. I went downhill until around 23 when I was put in jail for two years due to drug related charges. During my time there, I was able to reflect on my decisions and accept that I had a problem with substance abuse. That was a big step forward, instead of deny being an alcoholic every time my friends or family tried to confront me.
The first step was accepting my issue, but then I needed to come up with a plan of action. Prison is a boring place, and people mostly passed their free time doing exercise out in the yard or in their own cells. That’s when I started getting into fitness.
The withdrawal symptoms from my addiction were tough to handle. Right around that time, someone inside suggested I counteract and speed up the process by exercising. That’s exactly what I did. What followed turned into a passion for fitness and a drive to turn my life on its head, doing a one-eighty and going for a healthy lifestyle. I’ve come up with a list of 5 healthy living tips that will make your body feeling great.
- Drink Plenty of Water
If you’ve been getting headaches recently, have fatigue or difficulty concentrating, it’s probably because you’re not drinking enough water. Water is essential to life, and to me it’s sometimes shocking that something to important to our bodies is often neglected. And that’s the truth, because most people don’t drink enough water.
The current recommendations are that adult men should be drinking around 13 cups of water daily, and women should drink around 9. Are you below that number? I thought so.
On the other side of the spectrum, there are a multitude of benefits that go with drinking enough water. It helps promote weight loss, boosts your immune system, detoxes your body, keeps your skin looking young and increases your energy. All of which are goals that people want.
- Reduce Alcohol Intake, or Cut It Out Completely
Of course, you were waiting for me to mention this one. Alcohol had such a negative impact on my life that I can’t stress the importance of keeping consumption to a minimum. Or, if you’re really looking for a challenge, then try kicking the drinking habit altogether.
Letting go of the bottle was the key element to my recovery. At the time, I didn’t realize the devastating effects alcohol was having on my body. When you drink, you’re loading your body with empty calories, which is the opposite of what you want if you’re trying to lose weight. It attacks your liver and promotes acne as well. Those are just the physical effects; I won’t get into what alcohol abuse can do to your social life, emotional health and family relationships.
Hangovers tend to make us unproductive. You could plan an entire day filled with physical activity and have it be ruined because of one too many the night before. If your goal is getting in peak physical shape, it’s time you decide whether alcohol has a place in your life. Detoxing your body from alcohol will help you in the long run, and your body will thank you for it.
- Watch Your Calorie Intake
As I mentioned above, alcohol is a source of empty calories that don’t do anything to promote good health. Many times I would get drunk without having eaten anything. I would feel my stomach eating itself, and that led to a quick decision to grab a hamburger or something quick and greasy to make the feeling go away. I gained lots of unhealthy weight because of that, and losing it was even harder.
Back then, there weren’t all these fancy smartphone apps that regulated your calorie count for the day. Now, it’s easy to download a fitness app that informs you about your diet and thus keeping it in check.
Once you find out how many calories you should be eating based on your gender, weight, and height, all you have to do is decide whether you’d like to cut down or amp up. That depends on what your goals are. Six packs don’t happen overnight; they take lots of hard work and dedication.
- Get Your Body Moving
It’s time to talk about the one of the most important steps to getting in shape. Diet and nutrition are essential and they help move you towards the body image you want. For them to be effective, they have to be combined with consistent exercise.
As we move forward into an age that integrates technology more and more in our lives, we see the negative repercussions start to emerge. People have jobs that keep them seated all day. A new condition on the rise in children comes in the form of text neck. It’s exactly how it sounds: unnatural neck posture due to extended periods of time bent over a cell phone.
Technology is not the enemy, but you need to be proactive in battling the possible side effects it may have in your life. For example, a while back I started a pushup challenge with my best friends. The idea is to do 100 push ups a day for 100 days. When I started the challenge I could barely hit 20, but now I can crank out 50 at a time without stopping. The best part, is that we’ve hit the 290 day mark not too long ago. That’s right, we liked the challenge so much that we continued doing it long after it was over.
That’s exercise to gain muscle and tone your body, but exercising doesn’t have to be that intensive. There are many health benefits to practicing yoga, and I’ve taken it up as a morning ritual.
Those are some of the tips that I find are great for setting up your routine. I’ve come a long way since my time in the gutter, and I’m now 9 years sober. My passions have changed from craving a drink to craving a game of basketball or a run up the hill. I still have temptations to drink every now and then, but thankfully I managed to replace my artificial highs with natural ones.

When you’re working to keep your hair healthy and moisturized, you must understand how dry and flaky scalps can ruin your dream of getting perfect looks. The skin of the scalp needs to be healthy...
The skin of the scalp needs to be healthy just like the other part of your body, why? Because healthy scalps can save you from being an uncomfortable situation.
Besides first thing is; a good hair begins with a healthy scalp. And if your scalp becomes too dry that will lead to itchiness and flaking.
No worries, there are some simple and easy remedies to treat a dry scalp that will help you get rid of this problem for sure.
Here I’ll show you 5 easy steps that won’t take longer than moments to fight back with your dry skin and keep flakes out of your luxurious locks.
- Choose a suitable shampoo for scalp health:
This is the first step to treat the dryness of the scalp. Probably there is no one who doesn’t use shampoo or conditioner. But the thing is that when these two products are incompatible with your type of hair skin, these might leave your scalp to dry or too much moisture.
All of the products in the markets are not up to the mark and some might contain harsh chemical, fragrances or colors that can strip our scalp of natural oil and leave it dried.
So before it’s too late review your existing shampoo. Choose one formulated to moisturize your scalp and hair, such as a formula that includes tea tree leaf oil. This type of oil is very effective in cleaning many types of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
The study showed that choosing any anti hair loss shampoo that contains at least 5% of any tree oil (like Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil) is effective to reduce 41% dandruff and related fungal from the scalp.
- Apply hair oil to scalp:
After taking the shower, try to apply jojoba oils that will prevent your skin to become hydrated. Vitamin E is an amazing moisturizing property that can balance out scalp oil production and may help to stay moisturize the scalp for longer.
Oil like Jojoba and avocado contains lots of Vitamin E that helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier, preventing water loss and penetrate the layers of the scalps.
So give a deep clean massage with this oil and let it dehydrate for few minutes so that it penetrates the top layer of your skin. In the meantime, it’s better to cover your head with a cap. When you will feel that your scalp has been moisture enough rinse it properly.
Pro-tip: If you have too much dry scalp, try this overnight before you take your shower.
- Take steps for preventing dry scalp:
I start with the scalp and push my fingers towards the back and in between, I gently kneading or lifting the scalp with a firm and of course with a constant pressure. I do it for 15 to 20 minutes and most of the time I use oil.
Wondering what might be the benefit. A head massage can promote proper blood circulation in the scalp and helps the cells to become stronger.
Instead of massaging you can use a boar-bristle hairbrush that helps to distribute the oil you are using and worked to lift dirt and dead cells from hair.
- Take Care while washing your hair:
Washing your hair in extremely hot water leaves them looking dry and lifeless. Though there is no proven research to say what temperature is perfect or preferable to wash, few studies have been found that washing with warm water at first and rinse off with cool one can bring more benefit.
When you wash your scalp with warm water, it helps to open hair cuticle and when applying cold water ensures the moisture and benefits remain seal. Warm water will wash away dead cells and dirt from the scalp.
Use a moisturizing shampoo perhaps with tea oil (as mentioned earlier), rinse it thoroughly and wash it. If you want to use conditioner apply it as mid-shaft downward towards the ends. You also can leave it by wrapping with towels for a few minutes.
- Don’t Scratch:
Normally the dry scalp can get itchy. And contentious itching can make you so annoyed that suddenly you might feel to get a comb or other object and start scratching it with your entire arm’s strength.
Getting that ‘right spot’ can feel like a huge relief, I know. But if you do so this, it might hurt your scalp further. However, a hot shower is another cause for which your scalp might start to itch. That’s another reason why you were suggested to use warm water.
So rather scratching, make a paste of curd and coconut oil and apply it on your scalp gently. Leave it for half an hour and rinse it with shampoo.
Trying these steps regularly may lead you to get a healthy scalp and hair that bounces with vigor. Since now you know what needed to be done, rather waiting to try these and let us know your experience.

Planning to watch your kid’s games but don’t want to become an overly competitive sports parent?
Let the experts from a reputable sports academy in Abu Dhabi give you a few pointers on how to provide positive support for your young athlete without going overboard.
1. Let kids have fun
Regardless of the sport or level your child is participating in, don’t take it too seriously.
Always remember that there is more to playing sports than just winning, especially for children. You may not always agree with the way the coach rotates the players or with the referee’s calls, but the objective here is to let the kids enjoy the game.
Also, don’t focus on your child’s mistakes. You don’t want your child to get intimidated and discouraged, and then lose interest in playing altogether. When you constantly emphasize your kid’s failures, he or she is more likely to quit.
What you can do instead is to give them encouragement. Find something worth celebrating, regardless of how minor the victory might be. Telling your kid what they’re doing right allows them to believe that they are capable of improving.
2. Don’t compare
Never compare your kids to other kids, whether your child is doing well or not.
Each individual develops differently. Making comparisons will only lower your kid’s confidence and self-worth if he or she is performing poorly. Even if your child is doing very well, comparisons inadvertently put down other kids’ performance, sending the wrong message to your child.
What you can do instead is to appreciate your child’s strengths, and voice out your praise for their own individual talents, not in relation to others. You can also let your child know that you are proud of him or her for showing sportsmanship and respect towards all players throughout the event.
3. Let kids choose which sports they play
Never pressure your child to participate in a specific sport just because you like the sport, or you were good at it when you were younger. In doing this, you are actually forcing your child to live out your dream.
If you see yourself taking your child’s achievements more seriously than he or she does, this is an indication that you need to take a step back. Allow your kid to explore different options. This may mean that your young one might end up pursuing several different activities, or focusing on one sport he or she is really into.
The chances of any child becoming a professional athlete are incredibly slim, significantly less than 1%. And children risk injury from specializing too early as well. With these facts in mind, there is no point in pressuring your child to play a specific sport. Let kids be kids and let them discover their favorite athletic endeavor on their own.
4. Allow coaches to do their job
You may not agree with the coach’s plays but shouldn’t question his or her authority in public. Yelling instructions from the sidelines only confuses your child as to whom to follow. Plus, this will make your child lose confidence in the coach.
If you have an issue with how the coach runs the team, ask for a meeting instead. During the meeting, you can ask the coach why your kid is not playing as much as the others, for example. Be prepared, as you may hear a reply that you are not expecting, and use the honest feedback to motivate your child.
5. Control your emotions
Whether your team is doing well or not, you need to check and control your emotions and reactions. Do not get into shouting matches, harass people or use foul language. Sportsmanship is not only for children to display during the game, but for everyone involved in youth sports.
Your verbal and body language will show your emotions. How you behave and react can affect your kid’s perception and enjoyment of the game.
Kids these days are stressed enough with all the advanced school subjects that they are required to take. Getting involved in sports is one way for them to relax and de-stress.
As a parent, your kid’s games are an opportunity for you to bond with your child and show your support.
By following these tips, you can make the most of these precious moments. In addition, by being a good sports parent, you are creating a positive experience for you, your child and the other parents at the game.

A wardrobe becomes the center of our universe for some time each day as we busy ourselves in picking the outfits and match them to create the perfect attire for a formal meeting, or a casual party, or some wedding. Some trends come and go while some never lose their charm and are here to stay. Have a look at these five essentials that every woman should have in her wardrobe.
- Waist Belt
Having a waist belt in your wardrobe will be a lifesaver because it helps to highlight curves and adds interest to an outfit. Get a variety of waist belts in different colors, shapes, designs, and textures. These belts come in different materials such as suede, leather, lace, polyurethane, and more. A waist belt can add a unique and interesting detail to simple and solid pieces that will change the look of a plain outfit.
- The Classic White Blouse
A classic white blouse is a key to a stylish wardrobe. The white blouse is very useful for any woman when it comes to having a polished and elegant look. White shirtwaists, with pintucking or elaborate lace detailing, can be a great addition to your wardrobe. You can pair it up with loose black pants for work, and if you want a more casual look, you can wear it with a mini skirt to give off classic vibes.
A bathrobe is one of those essentials that all genders and people of all ages need, so not having one your wardrobe is not an option. There is nothing that is more comfortable than having a comfortable and elegant spa robe that you can snuggle into after a hot bath or when you are in a mood to spend some quality relaxation time.
- Black Faux Leather Jacket or a Coat
A jacket, especially a faux leather jacket, is an item in every woman’s wardrobe. However, at the same time, it is not for everyone. Some prefer an oversized coat over a leather jacket. Either way, these two items are essentials, especially for chilly weather. They can give an outfit the edge it needs plus it can be dressed up or down. These jackets usually come in black so they can make the color pieces pop. You can get leather jackets in different shades of brown if you want a more vintage or conservative look. There are others styles to consider as well such as collarless or cropped.
- Loafers or Heels
You cannot survive without having heels or loafers. A lot of people prefer to wear loafers because they are comfortable. Loafers not only look comfortable, but they also look really stylish too and are easy to style and exude elegance. They are useful for work and doing errands. But there comes a time when wearing heels will give your dress a classy look. Having one or both of these shoes is a must.
All these wardrobe essentials will help you no matter what look you want to achieve.

As we age, we are at an increased risk of trips and falls. Because of this, many seniors can lose confidence and become less mobile, however, staying mobile throughout life is incredibly important. Staying mobile...
Staying mobile allows seniors to remain independent and healthy which is a huge priority. Here’s 5 reasons why staying mobile is important for seniors.
- Healthy Circulation
Staying mobile helps to maintain and improve circulation which is vital for our health. Good circulation ensures blood can transport oxygen and nutrients to body parts such as the brain, skin heart and other crucial organs.
Exercising is easier with healthy blood flow, and the more mobile you are, the better your circulation. Cardiovascular exercise, like a simple walk can help to improve your circulation.
- Bone Density
Ageing can cause a loss of bone density as our bones begin to retain less minerals such as calcium. With thinning bones, fractures become more of a concern as well as reduced mobility. Conditions such as osteoporosis, common in the ageing population can cause bones to become thin and brittle.
According to this 2014 study, weighted exercises have been shown to effectively increases bone mass density, even in elderly subjects with osteoporosis. Simple exercises with light weights, like dumbbell curls and seated shoulder presses are perfect for seniors. Weighted exercises put bones and muscles under healthy stress which can stimulate and grow them, all of which helps to keep you fit and mobile.
- Muscle Growth
By the young age of 30, our muscles stop growing and begin to lose mass. Of course, regular exercise can combat muscles loss and help you retain and grow more muscle. Muscles are important for our mobility and are used in everyday life, from simply walking and carrying things like groceries.
- Get More Sleep
As we age it’s harder to catch those important Z’s. Many people think we need less sleep as we age, however, sleepfoundation.org determines this as a common misconception. Quality rest is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Undertaking regular exercise will help to reduce stress and improve your sleep quantity and quality.
At the same time, rest is important for repairing muscles and cells. As little as 150 minutes of exercise a week has been proven to improve your sleep and of course, overall health.
- Increased Flexibility
Flexibility is one of the first things to deteriorate as age takes place. This takes place as muscle and bone mass reduces. Flexibility is obviously important for mobility and everyday tasks such as bending down to tie shoe laces, or reach up into cupboards.
Stretching is extremely important in staying mobile. The more regular exercise and stretching you do, the more mobile you will be and in turn the more independence you will have.
- A Sharper Mind
The health of your brain is important at any age. For a senior, it’s important for maintaining independence, self-esteem and confidence. It’s been found that those who walk more often have less memory decline than those who don’t walk.
Regular walking also appears to lower the risk of dementia. It’s important to note that this is just simple walking. Exercise doesn’t need to be intense for you to reap the benefits. Being mobile is important for both your body and brain.
For seniors, staying mobile is important. The benefits of regular exercise are far and wide and will ultimately help those ageing to remain confident and independent for as long as possible.
