When it comes to the bridal party, the groomsmen, and your guests, you want to make them feel welcome and important. While the wedding is all about the bride and groom, and rightly so, it’s also about those with which you’re willing to share your most special occasion. Therefore, when it comes to providing gifts for those close to you, such as bridesmaid robes and dinner table gestures, you want to make sure they mean something.
A gesture of thank you can mean so much more, so we’ve included three reasons why you should choose personalised gifts below.
They’re more personal
It goes without saying – a personalised gift is more personal. When you’re looking for gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen, it’s always a nice idea to opt for items that will continue to hold significance, and will never be thrown away. In the case of bridesmaids, a bridesmaid robe with their name embroidered on it will always be cherished. For groomsmen, a custom labelled bottle of spirits is sure to be appreciated as well.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes fat, but is not done to help people lose weight. While weight loss does happen, it is only a side effect of the body contouring. There are different types of liposuction and which one you have may depend on where the treatment is going to be done and how much is needed.
In fact, there are 4 different kinds of liposuction, but all offer the same end result, which is a body that does not have so many lumps and bumps on it.
Tumescent liposuction. This is considered the gold standard of all types, perhaps because it is the most used and safest. In tumescent liposuction a micro cannula is used to apply tumescent anaesthetic to the treatment areas. This helps to break down the fat and stop bleeding so the fat cells can more easily be sucked out. The results are very pleasing and can be repeated if necessary without any harm.
No one likes the thought of getting dentures, but if your teeth are missing you won’t be able to chew food properly and can get indigestion or even malnutrition. Besides, most people enjoy eating and if you can’t do it properly it can impact your enjoyment of life and even social interaction.
Probably the worst thing about going to the dentist and getting dentures is the thought of having your teeth out. But this may have happened gradually over the years and you may not need to have any more out. In this case, you’ll be getting a part plate to replace those that are missing. If you do need to have some out, it won’t be any worse than you’ve had before.
The dentist will fit you for a temporary plate so that you won’t be left without an attractive smile, but can pop it in as soon as the gums are healed enough. This temporary plate may be used for up to 12 months to allow all the swelling to go down and the mouth and gums to adjust to their new normal. Once this has happened, you’ll be fitted for a new, permanent plate.
There are many carers in the world, from nurses and mothers to those who dedicate their whole life to caring for a loved one who has been injured in an accident or who suffers from some form of dementia. Caring for others is the kind of work that is high in satisfaction, but even so, carers need to take care of themselves as well, because the job is emotionally and often physically demanding.
Very often, we see tragic circumstances where the carer gave their all – basically their life – for their loved one and died first, leaving the person they cared for without any support. In the case of a retarded child, this can have a terrible effect on them. Their carer insisted on doing all for the child for many years, thinking that such independence was a good thing.
These days we rarely hear Grandma – or anyone else – telling us to sit up straight like they might have done years ago. And with the increasingly sedentary work and lifestyle most of us are living, bad posture seems to affect most of us. However, good posture certainly contributes to healthy living and here’s how.
Good posture helps you to breathe properly. This ensures a good supply of oxygen in the body. Try inhaling deeply while slouching, then sit up straight and inhale. You’ll easily notice that the latter allows you to inhale much more deeply. When you have enough oxygen in your bloodstream you are much healthier.
It helps your brain to function properly with better concentration and clarity of thought. Studies show that the brain needs 20% oxygen to perform optimally.
Good posture improves your image. People look at you and think you are attractive, alert and healthy. When you see a person who constantly slouches, you’ll wonder if they are sick, in pain or feeling emotionally stressed.
We all like to know ahead of time what is going to happen to us, especially when a new procedure has been scheduled that we have never had before. Knowing ahead of time allows our minds time to process the steps and we don’t feel nearly as nervous. If you don’t know what to expect you can often feel quite stressed out, even with something as simple as IPL Skin Rejuvenation.
So here is a brief rundown of what to expect when you go for your first IPL skin rejuvenation procedure. But firstly, it is essential to choose a reputable practitioner who has been fully trained and is highly experienced with many happy patients. This may be a simple treatment but it is still a medical procedure and should be treated as such. Letting just anyone do it can cause a whole host of problems.
When you choose the doctor and discuss your needs with them they will advise you on the best skin care treatment for your type of skin. IPL Skin Rejuvenation is not suitable for every skin type. However, once you get the go ahead and make that appointment, here is what you can expect to happen.
If you see a child with very pale skin you will probably think they are healthy because their mother has been very careful to slap on the sunscreen and only allow them outside in the early morning and late afternoon when the sun is not so hot. However, you would be wrong.
People who don’t get enough sun on their skin can be very unhealthy. The main way we get Vitamin D is by the action of the sun on our skin. Vitamin D is important in itself, but it is also necessary as an aid to absorbing calcium which makes bones and teeth strong and healthy. This is even more important for children, whose bodies are still growing.
There are many other health benefits of sunshine on the skin: –
Most women spend time caring for their facial skin, but often neglect their hands to a great extent. Even having decorated or polished nails won’t cover up hands that are wrinkled and old looking. And since the state of our hands can give away our age to some extent, anyone who wants to look younger should give their hands some TLC.
Here are some tips to keep your hands happy
Wear cotton gloves outside if you are working in the garden or mowing.
Wear rubber gloves while washing up and when using harsh chemicals for cleaning.
Don’t put your hands in really hot or icy cold water as this will turn them red and the hot water will take all the natural oils out of them.
Wear sunscreen on the backs of your hands – and lower arms – when driving for long periods. Don’t put it on your palms as it can make your hands slippery. You can also wear fingerless gloves while driving to protect your hands from sun damage.
Just like any other cosmetic procedure, there are some people who are better suited to having liposuction than others. These people will get the best results and are the preferred patients of cosmetic surgeons. Most such surgeons will refuse treatment for those who they don’t consider good candidates, since they don’t want to risk getting a poor reputation from someone whose procedure did not do what they expected.
So who are those lucky people that are suitable candidates to have their fatty lumps removed and their body beautifully contoured ?
People whose skin is very firm and elastic. Elastic skin has the ability to bounce back after those fatty cells are removed. If your skin is wrinkled and sagging, it will sag even more after liposuction. Even if it is not sagging now, skin that doesn’t have much collagen is likely to sag after treatment. That is why older people whose skin is often lacking in collagen and elasticity may be refused treatment. It’s just as well; you wouldn’t want a big sag where a bump once lived.
Sleep Apnoea is a medical condition that prevents your body from getting the kind of sleep and rest that is needed for optimum health. It’s not just having insomnia; many sufferers don’t even know they have it and may even think they sleep well. At the same time, they’ll always feel tired and wonder why.
What is happening during those night hours if you have sleep apnoea? Your breathing is being obstructed so that you actually stop breathing for tiny periods of time while you are asleep. This often happens mostly during that deep sleep cycle and your body is then deprived of the oxygen you need while at the same time having too much carbon dioxide in the blood.
That sounds very bad and it is, but the brain recognises the fact that there is not enough oxygen in the bloodstream and goes to work to waken you so that you start breathing again. You may not know that this happens because you are not likely to come fully awake. You’ll just come out of that deep sleep cycle and will once again sleep lightly and breathe more regularly – until it happens again.
The trouble is that this can happen hundreds of times per night, so is it any wonder you feel constantly tired?
Many countries suffer from a drug addiction problem and most of them have some kind of treatment centres that help with drug rehab. In Australia, many addicts go overseas for treatment because it’s cheaper than that found at home, however that is not the only reason. In some states of Australia it is difficult to get in, with long waiting times caused by not enough beds in treatment centres.
This is particularly so in Victoria, where many users are forced to travel to Sydney for treatment or be at risk of suicide. This is also difficult for them due to the cost of travelling and if their family goes with them for support, there is the additional cost of accommodation, unless they happen to have a friend or relative they can stay with.
A lot of teens don’t like the idea of getting braces on their teeth, but the expertise of a dentist who will then refer you to an orthodontist is needed to ensure your teeth are aligned properly and are straight. Otherwise there will be a lot of dental problems for you later on. You may even have some now, if your teeth are crooked or if your bite is incorrect.
In addition, there are sure to be plenty of others in your age group also having similar treatment, so you won’t stick out like a sore thumb; you’ll be in good company. So what’s the first thing that will happen?
The first appointment will be for an examination only. You may have to take x-rays from the dentist; if not, they will most likely be taken at this time. Then the orthodontist will discuss with you and your parents what the problem is and the treatment necessary, how long it will take and what it will cost.
Most people know the feeling of waking up and having to get going on their day’s activities after a poor or restless night’s sleep. Not only does a bad night make you feel tired and unable to cope with things all the next day, it can cause serious problems with your life and your health.
For instance, being tired prevents you from concentrating and focusing on the activities you need to do. Driving the kids to school? They are at risk when you can’t concentrate properly on the traffic, or when your decisions to act come more slowly than they should for safety. If you work at certain jobs driving machinery or operating equipment the same applies. If you are too tired to concentrate, things can go wrong too easily. The results can be costly at best and dangerous to your health are worst.
However, constant insomnia can also cause less noticeable health problems that sneak up on you unawares until they become too big to ignore. These can negatively impact your life and the lives of your loved ones if they are not dealt with. Health experts agree that these problems include risks of –
Many people use Botox injections to give their face a makeover and get rid of wrinkles that make them look old before their time. It is an important first step to do your research carefully so you know the cosmetic surgeon chosen has the best qualifications and many testimonials from happy patients. If you choose an overseas clinic for your treatment you can’t be sure of getting a highly trained and experienced doctor.
Choosing an Australian trained cosmetic surgeon for your Botox injections will give you peace of mind you are getting top quality treatment. Some people who have gone overseas for treatment to places such as Bali or Thailand find their treatment has either made no difference or has left a result they are not pleased with. They then have to have more treatment when they come home. This is not cost effective, nor is it something you want to go through.
While we do need some kinds of stress in our lives, constant stress can be not only debilitating, but very dangerous. Health professionals have linked stress to many diseases, from ulcers to heart disease, stroke and more. Acceptable forms of stress are short-lived stress that helps us accomplish certain goals important to us, e.g. exercising for health – which is a form of stress on our body – and stress that saves us from danger. For instance, jumping out of the way of a run-away vehicle is good stress, even though it may leave you trembling.
Dangerous stress is that which goes on for months at a time, such as a stressful workplace or a situation that you can see no end to. Being constantly under physical or emotional stress is bad for your health, but even if you can’t see a way out of the situation you may be able cope with it by employing the following tips.
As we have seen when watching the Paralympics, people with disability certainly can play sport and so, of course they should. In fact, this is one of the things they can do that they not only gets them out of the house, but is beneficial to them both physically and mentally.
Once they are focussed on what they can do – playing the game – instead of what they can’t do, they find their self esteem shoots up and their enjoyment of life increases exponentially. And if they win what a great way to celebrate being alive. If you’ve even pondered this question, you only have to watch the winners of gold medals to know what a great thing it is for them to play sport.
