A New Way of Decompression:Gardening

TAGS: None

Increasingly fast pace of modern life, the pressure is getting bigger. Therefore, we must learn how to relieve the pressure, gardening is actually a good decompression method.

Between being constantly bombarded by bleak economic reports and other seemingly endless tragic stories on the news, living happily day to day can become increasingly difficult. Finding an interest such as gardening that you can delve into can literally mean the difference between waking up stressed out to falling asleep relaxed and exhausted, a perfect combination for a good night’s sleep.

“I think basically anything that you enjoy doing reduces stress,” said licensed clinical social worker Robin Canter. In her psychotherapy practice in Wilton, Canter works with adolescents, adults and families dealing with depression, anxiety and court
mandated anger management.

A New Way of Decompression:Gardening“So whether it’s gardening or just being outside, or doing a handy craft, anything that you enjoy doing is useful for stress reduction.”

Gardening has a variety of levels that contribute to a feeling of well being and accomplishment. Mainly, gardening takes work. Whether you are planting an entire acre of crops or simply have a couple pots of tomato plants on the patio, the time and tending to that garden’s require can help override obsessive, useless thoughts. Focusing on deadheading petunias can give an overworked brain just what it needs to relax and slow down. And looking at a beautiful flower or succulent vegetable helps elevate mood in itself.

“Well you could even go so far as to say that when gardening, people are moving their body, digging in the dirt and working up a sweat,” added Canter, “and any form of exercise is good for stress reduction.”

Canter explained that exercise causes chemical changes within the body which in turn improves mood.

In the Bible, the church actually has a concept of home, for heaven’s hope with a strong nostalgia.

Hailfingen town center design of the chapel is the starting point for the local rural residential areas by extracting the type to define a new architectural form. This design approach is regional, but also the application of typological thinking. Germany? Quincy

How to Keep a Nice Sleep Quality

Tags: ,

napping-in-the-garden

I figure many people would have the same problem concerning sleepquality at night, having trouble getting good sleep through the night (i.e. tossing, turning, waking up more than once), it seems that a peaceful night’s slumber is so hard to get. But there is a few tips which might be helpful.

Get on schedule. Your internal “biological clock”matters. Varifying your get bed time too often may get your body tired by adjusting to different routine. So try to keep the same time, for say, at 11pm, to get to sleep each night, no matter it’s weekend or not.

Be mindful of what you have eaten or drank before bed. A too full or too empty stomach would both interrupt your sleep. Keep a 3 hours time for the food to digest and avoid spicy food or spirit lifting drink like coffee or alchol.

Keep the room dark. Totally black is the best, but sometimes it’s hard to achive this. Since we many have some little light on the router or we need to light a mosquite killing light. My suggetion is cover them up with a cloth or something.

Change your sleeping position. Pick whatever position that makes your feel cosy and comfortable but just avoid totally down turn.

Exercise: Do some sort of exercise everyday may help your sleep greatly, like swiming, jogging…..

Healthy lifestyle may changed your life.

Time to Organize Your Wardrobe and Cut Down on Waste

Tags:

If you’ve always scoffed at the idea of hiring an image consultant to make sure you’re dressed properly for your daily routine of hitting the gym, the office, and the grocery store—well, you’re not alone. But beyond just showing you what styles, colors, cuts, and fabrics work best for your body type, an image consultant can help you make your wardrobe more eco-friendly by teaching you how to shop your closet and cut down on clutter.

Bringing in a professional eye to assess your fashion lineup gives you the unbiased analysis you likely can’t give yourself—she doesn’t care that your best friend’s mom gave you that sweater: it doesn’t fit and you never wear it. But this jewel-toned blouse, on the other hand, complements the skirt that you’d never been able to find a match for. And once you have a closet full of complete outfits, it’s easier to remember what you already own next time you’re shopping-so you won’t end up with five pairs of nearly-identical black pants ever again. You’ll save money (and materials!) by stopping yourself from buying doubles of some items or choosing cuts and styles that you know won’t flatter you. It’s amazing what a little organization can do for you.
