Vitamin Friends - New For The #NewYear2019

Vitamin Friends’ Just Focus harnesses Phosphatidylserine (PS), a clinically proven nutrient, to support and improve mind and body performance in children and adults of all ages. PS is a building block of our body’s cells. It is responsible for communication between brain cells for maximum cognitive performance. Just Focus harnesses this nutrient to support a variety of mind and body health benefits in people of all ages.
For Cognitive Excellence
Lipids are a major component of our brains. A full 60% (dry weight) of our brain is made of lipids, and phospholipids are among the most important of them. Compared to other organs, PS is especially prevalent in the brain. For example, PS makes up only about 3% of liver and heart phospholipids, whereas it makes up 18% of the phospholipids in the brain. This high level of PS in the brain highlights its importance for proper brain structure and function.

For an Improved Exercise Experience
While PS is known mostly for its ability to help improve cognitive skills, there are also other benefits. Over the years, a number of clinical studies that tested the effects of PS on exercise showed that intake of PS enhances the exercise experience by improving several different outcomes. These include significant improvements to endurance (which can boost peak performance) and recovery, reduced muscle soreness.

For Mood Improvement
PS naturally eases negative moods that may occur from time to time in response to life’s stressors. PS, a natural lipid that is part of our body, is clinically proven to improve mood. It was shown to reduce the increase in a hormone,cortisol, which naturally occurs as part of the body’s reaction to negative mood changes. Your cortisol level increases when a you become gloomy or experience a low mood.

For Stress Reduction
Daily stress, whether caused by a mental or physical event or situation, results in physical effects in the body, one of the most noted being an increase in the stress hormone, cortisol. High levels of cortisol, especially over a long period of time, can have many harmful effects on the body, such as blood sugar imbalance and diabetes, weight gain and obesity, suppression of the immune system, gastrointestinal problems, cardiovascular disease, and more.

Promotes Youthful Skin
PS benefits the skin via two mechanisms that are different but complementary to one another. The first mechanism found in animal studies relates to the way in which PS increases the levels of internal collagen production. Collagen is a protein which is the structural basis of skin. Reduction in collagen formation results in skin wrinkling, drying and deformation.

About The Book:
Endorsed by the Department of Effective Parenting and the Society for Creative Solutions, this collection of Very Official Forms offers a delightfully original way to help kids communicate their deepest feelings, desires, and secrets. It’s hard to apologize. It’s hard to say thank you. Sometimes it’s even hard to invite someone over for a birthday party. This cleverly designed, slyly bureaucratic collection of “forms” makes dealing with these childhood issues a great deal less awkward and a whole lot more fun. Issued in impressively official script and language by the Department of Regret, Remorse, and Reconciliation, the Union of Childhood Revenue, the Ministry of Dreams, and other indispensable offices, these forms help kids say some of the hard stuff: “I’ve eaten the last piece of…,” “You’re the best sister in the world,” “Thank you for buying me stuff I need,” “Thank you for buying me stuff I don’t need.” And, because it’s important to record even your most private feelings, there are forms to verify that one’s parents are, indeed, aliens; that the surprise birthday gift was not actually a surprise; that you had a really scary dream; and other conundrums not easily expressed in person. Highly adaptable to meet the needs and desires of any boy or girl, these forms can be endlessly photocopied - and of course filed away by parents and grandparents for future reminiscences and chuckles.

Back In The Swing In 2019

Well I'll be the first to admit that as for my blog, 2018 was not the best year.

But 2019 will be different. I intend to get back in the swing of things! And bring it back to it's glory. Not that my blog really had any glory, ha ha. But I do have some faithful readers, and people who enjoyed reading it, and participating in all the fun things!

So I'm glad you stuck around. It'll be some work to build it back up, and get it going in the right direction again, but that is what I aim to do! So here we go! And thanks for sticking around for the ride!

Teaching Your Kids Good Safety Habits

Since the moment you brought your brand-new infant home from the hospital, you have done everything you can to be sure your home was safe. You covered the electrical outlets, turned the pot handles back so curious hands couldn't pull them off the stove and invested in locks for the cabinets.

Now that your children are getting older, you are broadening your safety-first mindset to other issues like how to handle strangers coming to the door, rules related to the phone, social media and more. While you know that you have to teach your kids about these concerns, your kids are at an age where they can handle some of these situations on their own, and you want to be sure they develop solid safety habits.

With this in mind, the following tips and ideas can help you to teach your kids how to think of safety first in and around the home.

Teach them how your home security camera system works

If you have a battery-powered security camera or other home security camera system, teach your children how it works, how to watch the outside security cameras and what to do if the alarm is tripped. If your cameras feature night vision, go outside in the dark to get a video recording of you standing by the front door” this way your kids will know what this type of nighttime footage will look like. Even if your children are too young to be left alone, there will be times when you are in the shower and they may have to check the security cameras if the alarm suddenly starts going off. Explain that security camera systems are helpful tools that help keep your home safe, but that they also need people to monitor them.

Rehearse safety-related situations

As Family Education notes, you don't have to wait until your kids are elementary school age or older to start teaching them about security and safety around the house” you can ask preschool-age kiddos safety-related what if? questions to see how much they know and don't know. Ask a mix of easier questions with more challenging ones, and if your young child doesn't know the answer, offer a suggestion. For example, ask 'What would you do if you dropped a glass of apple juice and the glass broke?' or 'What would you do if you were watching TV and the smoke detector suddenly went off?' These questions will help to sharpen your child's self-protective instincts while teaching him or her what to do in these situations. Of course, you can ask older kids tougher questions like 'What would you do if an adult you don't know sent you a friend request on Facebook?' or 'If you are heating up mozzarella sticks in the microwave and they catch on fire, what would you do first?'

Involve them in safety routines

If you are the only one in the home who checks the windows and doors before going to bed or leaving to run errands, your kids won't fall into the good habit of doing the same. As A Platform for Good notes, even very young children can be taught how to lock a door. When you are heading out to school or the store with your children, ask 'Are all the windows and doors closed and locked?' and let them check with you. If your kids are old enough to remember the alarm code, you can also show them how to arm the system.

Remember, safety is an ongoing topic

Kids are very bright and they are amazing little sponges when it comes to learning new things. By teaching your preschoolers the basics of safe behavior and continuing the dialogue into their child, tween and teen years, you will be continually reinforcing this important topic with them and helping them develop great safety habits that they will someday use in their own homes.

Using Search Options to Buy Vessel Components You Need

You might have the skills and talent to repair your own yacht or boat. All of your capabilities, however, may be for naught if you cannot get the parts you need with which to make the repairs.

Rather than search local stores for what you need, you could get a better selection of hoses, spark plugs, valves, and other replacement parts for boats by shopping online. The website offers search options that will make your online shopping faster and easier.

Searching by Function
When you need to make repairs to your boat, you need parts that will do exactly what you expect of them. For example, when the engine misfires or has a hard time starting, you may need to put in new spark plugs. You need these parts to fire consistently and to make the connection with other parts of the motor so the engine turns over when you start it.

You can look for parts based on their function by using the available options on the website. The site is designed to let you narrow in on the parts you need without having to browse through endless search results. You can quickly find the parts needed for the repairs, add it to your online shopping cart, and then check out and have the parts mailed directly to you.

Searching by Price
Your yacht may already cost you a bundle of money without you spending more than necessary on parts for it. When you are shopping on a budget, you want to avoid looking at parts that are beyond what you can afford to spend. You may want to find parts that are refurbished or on sale for a lower price.

You can set the perimeters of your shopping by using the available filters on the website. You avoid seeing parts that are more than you can afford. You instead are shown a list of parts that fit better within your budget. You may end up saving money on the equipment you need to make timely repairs to your vessels.

What Are The Requirements For Securing A Payday Or Car Title Loan

Emergencies happen to hard-working people every single day. If you need fast cash to help pay for car repairs, tackle an unexpected medical bill or get through the gift-giving holiday season, there are a significant number of payday loan, car title loan and pawn shop companies across the United States that are happy to help you secure the funds you need when you are in a bind. While certain states have specific restrictions and limitations when it comes to these types of loans, there are some standard requirements you will need to meet in order to get one of these types of loans.

Most payday loan companies will require that you have a steady job, and you will need to provide proof of your income. In addition to providing a few recent pay stubs or a copy of your tax return, you may also have to provide your employer's phone number so that your current employment status can be verified. You will also need to provide proof of residency, a photo identification card and your bank account information. To protect the lending agency, they need to verify that you are who you say you are, and they need to have access to your information in the event that you default on your loan.

If you need installment loans Mississippi or in other southern states, you may need to provide a check from your personal checking account, and you may also have to present your social security card as an added measure of identification. The lending institution is required to disclose how they utilize this information in conjunction with their lending and recovery practices.

Most payday and car title lenders are able to provide you with the funds you need on the same day that you apply. In some instances, you may have to wait an extra day or two to get the money if additional verification is needed. If you are self-employed, it may take an extra day or two to get the money you need.

The New Year May Be the Best Time for a New Look

If there is one thing that people think about when they think about celebrating the new year, it is probably the making of New Year's resolutions. Most people resolve to give up something that is bad for them, such as smoking or spending too much money, or to take up something that is good for them, like exercising or eating better. However, you don't have to only work on your New Year's resolution to make positive changes in your life. If you've been considering changing your look, the start of the new year may be just the time to act.

If you're struggling with one aspect of your appearance in particular, your best bet may be to talk to a professional. That is especially true if you have spent years thinking about making a change and think that you are now ready to do so. For example, you may want to learn about coolsculpting denver if you are eating well and exercising but still having problems with certain stubborn areas of your body. Or, if you are looking to minimize the wrinkles and lines that come with aging, you may want to talk to a dermatologist about getting botox injections, fillers, or laser treatments.

You don't have to make major changes to improve your look for the new year, however. One of the easiest things that you can do to brighten up and change your appearance is to try out a dramatic new haircut. If you usually have long hair, consider a short style, and if you usually have short hair, think about getting extensions, at least for as long as it takes to grow out your own hair. Another idea is to see a professional make up artist to get new ideas about your cosmetics.

Finally, for the new year, promise yourself that you will take time to take care of yourself. Too many people neglect their own well-being to care for others. You deserve to be happy now!

Why Jewelry Makes the Perfect Gift for the Holidays

When deciding what type of gifts to get for your loved ones this holiday season, you should definitely consider shopping online or in a jewelry store for jewelry. Jewelry makes a great gift for just about anyone that you might want to buy for this holiday season for these reasons.

It's Not Always Expensive

Even though some pieces of jewelry might cost thousands or even millions of dollars, not all jewelry is expensive. If you shop around a bit, you can find budget-friendly jewelry for your loved ones. If you're looking to splurge a little on the people you love, though, you can naturally find nicer jewelry at higher price points, too. Jewelry can generally be purchased at just about any budget, which is part of why it's such a great gift item.

It's Something Your Recipient Might Not Regularly Buy

When buying a gift for someone close to you, you may want to purchase something that he or she might not normally purchase for himself or herself. A lot of people don't regularly treat themselves to new jewelry, making it the perfect gift.

It Sometimes Has Special Meanings

Jewelry sometimes has a special meaning. For example, engagement and wedding rings have a special meaning, of course. Other types of jewelry can have other types of special meanings, though. For example, if you give someone you love a guardian angel wing necklace, then you will be showing him or her that you want to watch over and care for them.

It's Easy to Wrap, Ship and Give

Since jewelry is small, it's easy to wrap. It's also easy and affordable to ship if you're going to be sending the gift in the mail, or it's something that you can easily bring along to the holiday parties this holiday season.

When coming up with gift ideas this holiday season, try thinking about buying jewelry for the people you love. No matter who you're buying for, jewelry can be an excellent gift.
