Halloween Treats

Here are some smashing and hauntingly cute Halloween ideas!

Mood Dressing

Did you know that we dress according to our mood?  A woman's clothes reflects her emotional state of mind.  When in a bad mood most woman wear a baggy top over jeans.  When happy, women tend to dress in figure enhancing clothes made of bright colors and fine fabrics.  A dress, good jewelry, and nicer shoes seem to be the happy girl outfit.  Seventy one percent of women believe that changing their clothes affects their mood.  Attire does matter so dress for success...or to get happy!!!

Tattoos and Skin Cancer

Can tattoos cause skin cancer?  The word is out that the inks that they use are the same industrial type inks that they use on automobiles.  Tattoo ink is toxic and full of germs.  There has been an out break of infections caused by tattoos.  Those colorful inks contain phthalates (the things in plastic) and hydro carbons.  The black ink contains or is soot and can lead to skin cancer.  Blue ink contains cobalt and aluminum while red ink contains cadmium and mercury sulfide  Inks have been found to migrate to your lymph nodes.  So why scar the largest organ of your body???

A Dog Is a Man's Best Friend

Who knew that a dog can actually be beneficial to your health?  New studies at Harvard have found that dogs  improve and protect your health.  Besides walking your dog is good exercise, they have found that people with heart attacks  one year later are alive compared to those who don't have dogs.  Having and loving a dog is a stress reliever too.  Babies tend to develop healthier immune systems if they grow up with a dog..  Teaching kids responsibility to care for a pet is great too.

Fun Fall Outfits

Here are some fun fall outfits!  Now is the time to pull out your pea coats and sweaters and boots.

B.Y.U Study on the Benefits of Exercise

A recent B.Y.U. study found that exercise curbs your appetite or food interest.  I know that when I exercise I don't eat (ha, ha) so that is actual time that I won't be consuming calories...but to suppress your appetite, now I can handle that one!  I exercise at least 3 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes and I've had friends say that it doesn't really matter because it's what you put in your mouth that counts.  B.Y.U. is claiming that not only does exercise burn calories and tones your body, and strengthens your heart BUT it actually decreases your interest in food temporarily.  Brain scans showed people who had exercised for 45 minutes on a treadmill had less motivation for food afterward than those who are sedentary.  (Heck, I can go for a caramel toffee bar ANYTIME).  The difference in interest in food appeared to be driven by the exercise, not by one's body mass index. And it was consistent for both those who were obese and those who were normal weight.  So, exercise daily, eat good foods, and get enough sunlight and sleep...

In Favor of Motherhood

I believe that ideally a man/husband should provide, preside, and protect.  A mother should be the nurturer and the guardian of the hearth.  How can you be the "guardian of the hearth" if you are never at the hearth?  She should teach her children righteous principles.  You have to put your whole heart and soul into being a mother!  Full-time motherhood!  Children need their MOTHER more than they need MONEY!  There are so many hidden blessings and treasures that come from putting your children and family FIRST!  Children need the time and attention  and love that only a mother can give.  It is quality and quantity that counts.  If you put the time and attention in when they are under your care, then you can reap the rewards of having children turn out, the remainder of your days.  Children are under your care for just a short while and then they are gone!
