Exercises for Arthritis Pain Relief : Hip & Knee Stretches for Arthritis Pain Relief


Hi! I am Monica and I am going to show you
a stretch you can actually do for your hip and your knee if you are having arthritis
problems either on the floor or lying on your stomach on the bed. I will show you on the
floor here, so go ahead and lie on your stomach. I will show you on the left leg and what you
are going to do is just grab your heel and slowly pull it towards your butt. So you should
feel a nice stretch all over the front of your leg right here. You should be holding
from anywhere from 30-60 seconds. If this is kind of awkward for you, what you can do
is grab a belt and put it around your foot and then just pull on the belt so it is not
quite as awkward as reaching far back. You can also see variations of this exercise or
stretch standing. You can see people standing and pulling the heels to your butt, which
is fine too and whatever is more comfortable for you. So again a nice stretch for your
quads.

If You Have a Metatarsal Stress Fracture… WATCH THIS

If You Have a Metatarsal Stress Fracture… WATCH THIS


In this video, I’m going to show you some
great exercises to get your body ready to run again after a Metatarsal stress fracture. So you’ve been told that the foot pain you’re
suffering with is a metatarsal stress fracture. This is one of those injuries that I can unfortunately
speak about from personal experience. I can definitely confirm that this isn’t an injury
you can run through! As you’ve no-doubt been told, resting the
foot is hugely important to allow the the bone tissue to heal properly. However it’s important to remember that
while you’re resting the foot, there’s still loads you can do in terms of exercise. With the right rehab plan we can make sure
that when the time comes, you’re ready to get back to running stronger than ever. After all… it’s the foot we’re trying
to rest. As long as we’re careful to protect the foot there’s still the other 95% of
the body that we can work on! I’ve actually created a free downloadable
Metatarsal Stress Fracture rehab guide to go alongside this video with a series of bonus
exercises and rehab progressions. I’ll leave the link in the description of this video
– be sure to check it out Now, let’s take a look at the various different
phases of metatarsal stress fracture rehab and check-out a few of the key exercises you
can be working on at each stage… Ok so during this early stage of your injury,
we of course have to protect the foot from undue loading and stress while the bone begins
to heal. Whether you’re in a protective boot or not,
the this period of time where you’re not using the foot normally can have consequences for
areas higher up the body, such as the hips and the low back. While you can’t load the foot too much at
this point, you can still promote good movement throughout the rest of your body. Here are a couple of hip and back mobility
exercises you can work on without damaging your foot. Start on all fours. From there, take one knee
and bring it forwards towards your elbow. From there bring the knee out to the side
and straighten the leg backward from the hip. Repeat this circular movement ten times, then
reverse the movement. Aim for three sets of ten on each side. Laying on your front, reach your left foot
and leg back and across your body to touch the ground on the right of your body. You’ll feel your glutes and low back working
as you extend the hip through movement. You’ll also be getting a great stretch through the
front of the hip. Repeat this on your right and left alternately,
and aim for three sets of 10. In the same way, while you’re not using the
foot normally, sometimes the ankle and foot it self can get a little stiff. This simple a-to-z exercise where you ‘write’
the letters of the alphabet with your toes gives your foot and ankle a thorough workout
in all planes of motion. When your Physio gives you the go ahead to
begin gradually loading the foot again, any exercise where we work on balance and stability
is a great option… just as long as nothing you do causes your foot pain. This single leg toe touch exercise is one
of my favourite balance and single leg stability exercises for runners! It’s so simple yet
so effective… Standing on one leg, maintain your balance
as you keep your back straight and pivot forwards from the hips. Reach down to touch your big
toe with your opposite hand, then stand up straight again. Of course it’s not just about the foot…
As I mentioned regarding mobility, we also need to address the hips when it comes to
keeping important muscles such as the glute complex in good functional condition. I really like this variation on a step-up
exercise where we add a resistance band just below the knee to force you to work harder
through those all-important abductor and external rotator muscles of the hip, such as glute
med and upper glute max. Keep the movement slow and deliberate while
stepping back and forth over a step for three sets of 1 minute When it comes to gradually returning to running,
there are also a number of exercises you can work on to build strength around the foot,
ankle and lower legs. When the time comes to resume running gradually,
your Physio should give you an appropriate return to running programme so that you can
gradually increase the cumulative stress on the injured metatarsal. Alongside the running programme you should
also ask your Physio about exercises you can use to compliment running in gradually reintroducing
the loading. Exercises such as heel and toe walking are
great for building strength and endurance in the muscles around the ankles. Jumping rope and jumping on its on are both
great low level ploy strict drills which will help you condition the low legs, feet and
ankles for running. As with the obvious progression – hopping – care should be taken in performing
these post metatarsal stress fracture. Little and often is the way forwards with these exercises,
so as to not overload the bone tissue as it remodels. I usually find that 5 X 20sec bouts of an
exercise like jumping rope is an adequate training load to begin with. Not too much,
but enough to have an effect. If you’re unsure, please always check with
your Physio. Best of luck with your rehab, and don’t
forget to check the link in the description to pick-up your free metatarsal stress fracture
rehab guide.

Restorative Yoga Poses for Stress Relief


hi I’m Caren Baginski and today’s
restorative yoga practice is for stress relief and part of that means not
stressing out about the props that you do or do not have in order to practice I’m going to share with you four
restorative yoga poses for stress relief that you can do with minimal props this
whole practice only takes 20 minutes and dare I say it it’s better than sitting
on your couch and binge watching Netflix after a stressful day this practice will
leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated here’s what you’ll need
gather up a yoga bolster or a cushion and two blankets willow and I will meet
you back on your mat let’s begin in legs up the wall so you will need an open
wall space for you to put your legs up against remove your bolster or your
cushion and simply set that to the side for now find your two blankets and the
first blanket will be for underneath your sacrum your low back area
underneath your hips you’ll open that out and put that up close against the
wall space just as an added cushion then second blanket will be for your head I
recommend a lower fold but you may want to experiment because you’ll want your
chin to be lower than your forehead to promote that deep relaxation response in
the body so what I like to do is have my blanket come out from the wall in a line
with the other blanket and then I’ll fold the back end over a little bit more
so that the back of my head will be a little bit higher and more supported
than the blanket underneath the tops of the shoulders in order to come into this
you’ll simply come up against the wall with your back and sit pretty close to
the wall so that when you swing your legs up you have a greater chance of
being close to the wall when you land however if you experience any tension in
your hamstrings then you’ll want to be closer or rather farther away from the
wall with your hips and you can always take
the bolster behind your legs in between your legs and the wall as a buffer so
I’ll show you that as well reach the arm that’s closest inward toward the
blankets straight forward and then tuck and roll swing your legs up the wall
once you start to arrive you can readjust as necessary so finding either
your legs very close to the wall or again if there’s tension in the
hamstrings walking yourself back and here’s where you can use your cushion
you’ll take that behind the legs maybe upright like this that’s some extra
support so that’s an option for you if your legs don’t quite make it yet all
the way close to the wall once you’ve found that just right space for you
today bring the blanket underneath your head closer to you so that it touches
the bottom tips of your shoulder blades as well as the back of the skull and you
can sense and feel the chin a little bit lower than the forehead next arrange
your arms in a V by your sides with your palms face up and completely relax into
your legs make any final adjustments here for example if you need a bit more
cushion underneath your pelvis or underneath your head and finally when
you’re settled in if it’s comfortable close your eyes we’ll drop into this position with the
breath so begin to just notice your breath moving in and out through the
nostrils and now participate in your breath with
about 10% more effort so that you can have a sense of breathing in more deeply
and breathing out smoothly bring a four-four count to the breath
counting into four on your next inhale and counting out to four on your exhale you now lengthen your exhale to a count of 6
or even 8 inhale for 4 exhale to 6 or 8 you failure abdomen and your chest
completely relax with your exhale allowing the breath to become even
smoother and softer like waves washing through your torso you now relax after your next exhalation and
release all effort in your breath allow the breath to become natural again you trace any sensation that you might feel
all the way into the soles of the feet and out to the fingertips becoming more
aware of the body’s response to stillness to transition out of legs up the wall
begin to wiggle your toes gradually allow there to be more
movement in your ankles in your hands you
slowly bend your knees and walk your feet down the wall until
you get closer with your knees toward your chest and just rest for a moment
here you might like to hug around the knees and take the feet off the wall the
knees could be apart or together stay present to any sensation you might feel
in the legs is there a tingling a brightness a lightness on your next
exhalation simply drop your knees to one side whichever is easiest for you to
come out reach that arm overhead and rest for a moment on the floor then inhale and use your hands gently to
press yourself upright going slow letting those transitions be just as
juicy as the posture and once you find your way back to your mat let’s take the
blankets to the side for now and extend the legs long in front of you coming
down to have a seat your hands behind you create some space in between your
heels and then just let the legs wash back and forth like with little mini
windshield wipers until they feel fully present and alive again the next
position that we’ll move into is a supported seated forward bend
so grab one of your blankets and on a decent thick fold you’ll place that
underneath the back of your hips underneath the back tips of the pelvis
so that you feel like you’re spilling forward and there’s a sense of already
bending forward because of that slight elevation you can make that higher if
that’s necessary for you so that that curve in your low back is not pushed all
the way back and down but rather lengthening up and forward then find
your second blanket and let’s roll it up on the long end into just a little mini
roll and place that underneath the knees this offers just a little extra padding
so that we don’t lock the knees out when we bend forward you can adjust that to
whatever height feels most comfortable for you as well maybe if the hamstrings
feel a little tight here you can roll it even more and then finally grab your
cushion and place that on top of your legs the final posture is bending
forward and resting your head so if this isn’t effortless for you and you need a
little bit more height then yeah go ahead and grab some other blankets or
other things have in your house to build that height
up to you if you like the feeling of the bolster against your belly you can rock
down from this space if you want to find a little bit more length in your low
back then you can lower and have the bolster further away whatever you do let
your arms be nice and soft and rooted you might snug them underneath the
bolster underneath your legs or just rest them by your sides and then finally
forehead touches down make any other adjustments once you come into the final
position for our hold because you want to make sure that you are completely
comfortable so if this feels like a huge stretch the body is not likely to fall
into its deepest relaxation state because it’s still feeling something
happening to it so build yourself up however you need and then find your
final position and rest will stay here for some time together feel the weight
of the day the burdens the obligations the tasks anything that you need to
manage control or do feel all of that emptying with your exhale emptying out
of the body sending it into Mother Earth you if effortlessness in every part of your
body begin the slow process of transitioning out of this pose use your hands to make contact with the
floor and an inhale to lift up through the
back of your heart until your head rises above your hips take a moment to breathe
in here integrating all these sensations back into the body breathing out
softening the shoulders then remove whatever you have on top of your legs
set that to the side and take out the blanket from underneath your knees and
allow that to go to the side as well scoot forward a bit off of the blanket
you were seated on and we’ll transition this blanket into the blanket for our
head as we come into supported bridge pose so again I like to fold my blanket
long and then just the back edge i tuck forward a bit so the back of the head is
here the tops of the shoulders are on the lower fold of the blanket and grab
your cushion and place that just in front of your hips width wise across
your mat then sit on that cushion and it’s from this space that we will lower
down to the floor so as you lower readjust the blanket underneath your
head as you need readjust the bolster underneath the hip
so that you feel really rooted across the low back the hip space you might
even if you notice any low back pain here you might pull that bolster up a
little bit closer to you so that the glutes hang off of the edge of the
bolster and then rearrange the feet so that it feels pretty effortless for the
legs to be held up here they’re neither moving out nor in they’re just routed
straight down through the soles of the feet with minimal effort arms reach to a
V by your sides palms face up explore that sensation of the chin being lower
than the forehead here so if you need to readjust through the blanket at all do
that now this is a gentle backbend an opening across the chest you might feel
a sense of energy or invigoration as we hold this position closing the eyes if
that’s comfortable so welcome in the opposite feeling of the forward bend a forward bend being more calming now than
this position but there’s still a sense of calm here very different from the
stressful frantic energy that we often feel around us and within us
notice how you can still be energetic at a slower pace let your bones get heavier so if there’s
any gripping happening in your thighs or your hip creases release that now release any tension in your jaw you
could open and close a few times until you’re completely relaxed through your
whole body feel yourself supported and held by the earth rest here in silence for some time natural easy breath you spend one more breath here as a means of
transitioning marking that transition between the stillness and the movement
feeling now just this moment in between action and doing nothing gently bring your knees closer toward
your chest lifting your feet you might choose to hug them in here or just place
your hands to the tops of your knees and we’ll move the knees in slight circles
tracing a little circle one way for three times and then the other way feel
the shoulder blades get heavier against the ground as the knees come toward you
your low back lengthens and I’ll simply plant the feet back down to the floor
push into the feet gently lift up so that you can slide your cushion downward
toward those feet and set your hips back down to the floor then keep going with
that cushion because we’re transitioning into basic relaxation pose or shavasana
so the cushion arrives underneath your knees you still have the blanket here
for your head the arms will come back face up arms at a V and if you’d like to
keep warm you can use your second blanket place that over your whole body
now or for some extra grounding place the other blanket on top of your abdomen feel the gentle heaviness of this
blanket encourage your body to completely relax feeling your whole body on the floor
close your eyes once more let’s take a deep breath in
fill it up without any strain and a deep breath out either through the mouth or
the nostrils feeling a sense of complete letting go then release all effort in the breath and let go even more be held by the earth and experience yourself in deep
relaxation and peace knowing that there’s nothing you need to
do to achieve this rest in silence I’ll bring you out when
it’s time you call yourself back
from rest by listening to any sounds that you hear in the room and any sounds you hear beyond this room from there invite the sensation of
movement into your fingers your palms your wrists then elbows shoulders and
stretch your arms overhead as you get long through your fingers extend long
through your legs curling your toes then flexing your feet take a few generous
breaths into the belly truly stretching and awakening and then relax and let all
that effort go and the limbs bend your knees in and roll onto a side removing any props
on top of you are letting them come with you resting on your side for a moment
survey your whole body in your inner awareness
see what’s changed since you began then press up gently and rise to a seat go nice and slow to keep
sense of relaxation here with you and if you need to sit up on something like a
bolster feel free to do that make your way with your hands together
at the center of your chest and dip your chin downward perhaps
eyes still closed or gazing at the fingertips thank you for your presence I

the next five to ten minutes we are going to teach you the 19 of the best home
remedies to getting rid of your red itchy eyes and it is allergy season so
this is a perfect topic. We were actually asked to do this topic. That is why we
came out with this. Click the link in the description to get the full list of
remedies that we are going to go over today and then make sure if you find this
video helpful share it with somebody that you know has allergies because we
all know somebody that has allergies They are sniffing and they’re sneezing is what I
meant to say all day long at work Before I forget if you are serious about
getting rid of your dry eye make sure you head to www.dryeyebook.com check out
our new Rethinking Dry Eye Treatment paperback book. It is free for a limited
time. If you had to www.dryeyebook.com We pay for the book. You pay for shipping.
That is for a limited time only and this is for people that are really serious about
getting rid of their dry eyes so check it out www.dryeyebook.com so also in the
comments let us know what you do to help your red itchy eyes so put that in the
comments below but that being said let’s go into what is an allergy so
basically an allergy is an atypical hypersensitivity reaction to anything
within a person’s environment so this is a little frustrating for people
but there are two different types of allergies there are seasonal allergies
and then there are perennial allergies so seasonal is what we normally think of
like in the spring and the fall when we are allergic to leaves or
pollen or things like that and then there are perennial allergies which are
all year-round those lucky people suffer all year round from different things
like insect proteins, animal dander, dust, sand, mold, and then other household items
Those are really common so basically your body has an immune response to
these substances and sometimes it can be really difficult to pinpoint because
like we said it can be anything it can be pollen, dust, a food you are eating,
animals that are around you, laundry detergent, and lotions. There are really
endless possibilities. What are some of the things that people are going to
notice if they have allergies. You are going to notice red itchy eyes big-time Like last night with me. It was awful. That is the point of this video and that is what we are going
over so red itchy eyes is the main hallmark symptom of allergies and
watering lots and lots of watering There is goopy discharges. There is
yellowish discharges. Watery discharges is like the homework staple of allergies and pink eye but allergy is what we are talking about
today and that’s because when you have your immune response running it is going
to cause redness. It is going to cause heat. It is going to cause
itching. It is going to cause just a lot of watering. That is what’s going on
with your eyes and the goal of these 19 remedies we are going to go over is to
calm your immune system down to reduce the inflammation reduce that redness
cool the heat down so it’s not as hot and it is not as inflamed so with that being
said here are the 19 best home remedies for your red itchy eyes so the
first one is removal of the allergy and this sounds like a no-brainer because the best thing you can do when you have
allergies is to get away from whatever is causing the allergy
we are not going to tell you to get rid of your pets or anything like that but
if you know you have an allergy to them then that could be a problem but we are
going to tell you to really look at your laundry detergents your lotions
any new things like that you could potentially be using in your life all these things build
up it maybe your pet causing the reaction right then and there but it
could be that your laundry detergent this and that and all these other toxic things in your household are you are allergic to as well
your food and that is causing an overactive autoimmune response and an
allergy doesn’t always occur the first time you are around something and you
might not notice the first time you use a new laundry detergent or
something like that but then suddenly you start having an allergic reaction it
could still be that laundry detergent because your body is just building up
this immune response so the best thing you can do number 1 is get away from
the allergy number 2 is use an eye drop an antihistamine eyedrops such as
Alaway and all the other ones like Pataday, Patenol, Pazeo, Bepreve
those are all prescription drops Alaway are over-the-counter and
then there is always generic ones like CVS brand, Walmart brand just look for
ketotefin is the main ingredient Those eye drops they do have
preservatives unfortunately but you are only using them twice a day and so if
you are allergic to preservatives stay away from them but if you are not use it
twice a day and if you need a third or fourth time that’s okay too but just
don’t go about four times a day because then the preservatives can start to
cause problems too but we recommend when you wake up in the morning and when you
go to bed at night and then these drops you work by two different mechanisms so
one is to help the itch on the spot and so if your eyes are itchy put a drop in
you are going to feel relief the other one is actually to build up against the itch
and so if you start taking it two weeks before your allergy season starts it will
actually prevent the the reaction from occurring inside your eyes so an eye drop
like Alaway the next one it is to clean your eyelids with a hypochlorous
acid cleanser and this is so important we discuss cleaning your
eyelids all the time it should be like brushing your teeth you should
clean your eyelids twice a day and we like to use hypochlorous acid because
it’s really gentle but it’s also going to get rid of any contaminants on your
skin and any allergens on your skin if you have got allergens that are in your
eyelashes or on your eyelids by cleaning them twice a day
you are going to get rid of those allergens and keep them from getting into your
eyes and causing that redness and itchiness as simple as I
just did that right there super simple number four is a cool compress
so you can buy commercially bought cool compresses we like gel ones we do not
make a gel one but we put out one in the description below that is a gel
that is really nice you actually put it into the freezer or fridge depending on
how cold you like it and then when you take it out you just put it over your
closed eyelids what you’re doing there is you are reducing the immune response
because you are shrinking the blood vessels when you have inflammation
occurring or the immune response occurring the blood vessels get bigger and they release more histamine and more immune response
mediators fluid comes in and blood comes in you are going to have swelling that is
what the cold compress helps with reduce all that swelling down a little bit more number five is chamomile tea bags
so basically chamomile can be really nice for allergies all you need to do is
steep a tea bag put it in the refrigerator let that tea bag cool off
or do two of them both of your eyes are affected
then once they’re cooled off you want to place them over your eyelids and just
let them sit for a little bit that cooling tea is really going to be comforting for your eyes chamomile can be an
allergy for some people especially with hay fever because it is a flower so if you know that you have hay fever or you are allergic to
chamomile please do not and don’t forget to drink the tea as well so number six chilled cucumbers You have probably seen this done in spas
so what you do is you just chill a cucumber slice it up put it over
your closed eyelids while you’re laying down and so cucumbers have caffeic acid and vitamin C and so those are going to be antioxidants which are then
going to help reduce problems around your eyelids with swelling and everything else
number seven is green tea so the same as chamomile tea you are going to
steep the tea bag put those tea bags into the refrigerator so they cool
off and then place them over your closed eyelids and you will feel that relief
green tea is full of antioxidants to fight inflammation so they are great
too the tea bags are great to put over your eyelids and the tea is
great to drink as well so click the share button to share this video below
and if you find it helpful find a friend share it with them we would
love that also let us know in the comments below what you do to get rid of
your red and itchy eyes and so you can actually share pretty easily because
there’s a share button right there you click it and share it on Facebook you
can email to somebody and get them over here to watch this video so going back
to the green tea as well that is actually why we have that as the primary
ingredient in our soap is we use green tea because it does decrease
inflammation so much and it helps a lot but number eight is the 20-20-20 rule so
whenever you are looking at something up close like your phone or your computer
after 20 minutes of up close work you just want to take about 20 seconds to
look at something far away and that’s just a reduce eyestrain because eye strain
is a big deal and it is going to cause a lot of symptoms as well so if you’re having
red itchy eyes and then you are on your computer you are more likely to itch
your eyes and rub them while you are doing that stuff because you
just have eye strain and number nine is wear a pair of blue blockers it goes
right along with the 20-20-20 rule almost all of us are on our
computers or our phones or we’re looking at some type of device throughout the
day and that is really going to tire out your eyes so and it is going to
contribute blue light to your eyes so what you want to do is get a
pair of blue light blocking glasses I’m sure we have linked to those and wear
them whenever you are on the computer whenever you’re on your phone
wear them before you go to bed at night because they’re not only going to help
to decrease eye strain which will help decrease dryness and irritation but
they will also help you sleep better when you have allergies going on it can
be tough to sleep sometimes whether it’s because your eyes are itchy or whatever
but wear those blue blockers number two we talked about Alaway
eye drops or any other allergy drops now number ten is we are talking
about artificial tear or preservative free artificial tears why would we
talk about both of them because Alaway is more medicated where artificial tears
are not so artificial tears are just going to be there to help soothe your
eyes if you have a lot of irritation you are going to help wash your eyes out but
they’re mostly just going to be for symptom relief they are not actually getting to the
source of the allergy very similar to how we use them with dry eye therefore
symptom relief not to fix the problem number eleven is to reduce your
contact lens wear during high allergy days I know none of us like to hear not to
wear contact lenses but it is necessary you do need to
sometimes just take a couple days off of contact lens wear if you are an avid
contact lens wearer and really just give your eyes a rest because when allergens
get into your eyes they get onto your contact lenses and if you are
not wearing daily disposables you are just continually putting those allergens
into your eyes so make sure to give your eyes break that is just stealing my
thunder with number 12 is switching to a daily disposable lenses are
great for allergy sufferers because you put them in when
you want to wear them you throw away when are done with them what I did
with this with a lot of my patients that were in we worked in a low-income area
and it was a high allergy area so in order to combat the allergies we
would actually switch them to daily disposables for the three months or the
six months of their allergy time then we go back to a two-week lens for
that other time so that that might be considered it you might consider that if
you have a budget for your contact lenses but if you can switch the daily
disposables full-time that’s even better because they are healthier they are more
comfortable and they are going to be great for allergy sufferers so number
thirteen is to never share your contact lenses your solution or your cases with
anyone else this shouldn’t be something that I have
to tell you guys but you don’t want other people’s germs in your eyes and
they don’t want your germs They don’t want your
allergens. You don’t want their allergens Keep your contact lenses to
yourself. Wash your case or replace it every three months or so at
least and make sure that you are using new solution every night if you do
use solution with your contact lenses the best one that we like for allergies
is Clear Care it’s a hydrogen peroxide based solution. It does need
to be used with the special case that comes with the bottle. You don’t put it
in your eye ever and you do let your contact lenses sit in that
clear care solution for at least six hours before you put those contact
lenses in so I did want to go over that solution just because I know it can be
helpful number fourteen is replace your breakfast with green smoothies to
enhance your health and reduce your overall bodily inflammation that was a
weird word but the reason that is because everything we touch and come in
contact with can either help us or hurt us and so if you are not eating a healthy
breakfast of like plant-based healthy breakfast like green smoothies you might
be hurting your body by creating more inflammation in your body which is then
going to make your immune response worse in your eyes when you have allergies as
well and so if you eat clean and eat green smoothies that is going to help get clean
energy into your body and it is going to help you fight that immune response
better than if you were to eat a crappy breakfast like sausage and eggs so
number fifteen is can I interrupt here real quick? Yes. I am very
proud that I didn’t go on a soapbox There was green smoothies. I’m
proud of you. We have a link to our green smoothie chart in the description. We could talk
about green smoothies for hours. We love greens. Number 15 is to avoid
pointing fans and vents towards you at all costs so this is also a dry eye tip if you have a fan on your ceiling in your bedroom and
you sleep with it on at night or you have a fan next to you blowing at night
all night long or say in your car or you’re turning on the air-conditioning
or even the heat it can be worse do not point it at your face and truthfully
I hate to even have it on at all Travis when I fight about this
at night I’m like why do you need the fan because it dries my eyes out so much
and irritated because I sleep hot that is why we have a bed jet so going
along that line number 16 is keeping your windows closed in your house and up
in your car because as soon as you are exposed to the outside if that’s where
your allergies are then that could be the problem now if your allergies are
dust on the inside may be dust mites or maybe even mold in your house then you
need to open your house up and get that out and then get the mold removed too so
keep your windows closed keep your car window closed while it is allergy season so number 17 is to wash your towels and sheets pretty often during allergy season so everybody’s a
little bit different on how often they like to wash their towels and their
sheets and things like that but do it often do it more often than what you
think you should be doing it basically I would wash your sheets at least once a week you make sure that you are definitely
twice if you have like a dog if you have high allergies and you are
going to want to do that even more and Replace your towels as often as
you can. How many towels you have in your house? If you can
replace towels every day especially ones that you use to dry your
face and whatever then that’s even better and when you do your laundry use non-allergic detergents and things like
that. We really love to use eco nuts for our laundry detergent.
They’re like little berries that make soap. They’re pretty awesome. Look them
up eco nuts and then there is a link in the description. Then we also like to use wool balls in the dryer because dryer sheets are
actually super toxic to you some of the most toxic things in your house are
dryer sheets and the deodorant you are using so get rid of those dryer sheets buy some organic wool balls and they last
forever. We have had ours for five years We never have to buy them. They are the cost of one box of dryer sheets and we have had the same six for about five years now They don’t go bad. I buy them for everyone.
Every single person that we know has them now so number 18 is use an
all-natural minimal ingredients soap in your shower so I dare you to go look at
your body wash that you use your shampoo that you use you’ll see probably 40 to
50 ingredients and so that is why we switch to a very natural soap that does
have a lot of ingredients that is going to be your best way to reduce
because again going back to that exposure of lotions and dryer sheets and
everything has so many chemicals in it If you just minimize it. Organic wool
balls are made of wool and eco nuts are made of eco nuts. There’s one ingredient
in both of those and so it’s a big difference between dryer sheets and
laundry detergent so number 19 is avoid rubbing your eyes. I found myself pulling at
Travis and rubbing my eyes and I was like why does this feel
so nice. It will make things worse use an allergy eye drop because that is
going to take that itch right away that is tip number 19 so again visit the

What are the Pros and Cons of Debt Relief and Debt Settlement (2020)


– Do you wanna know what the pros and cons of debt relief, or debt settlement, are? Before I answer, make sure you subscribe
to our channel below, or click on the bell icon. And that way, when we
release new information, you will be the first to get notified. (upbeat music) So, what are the pros
and cons of debt relief, or debt settlement? Let’s start with the pros. Settling your debts through a debt relief, or debt settlement company
could resolve your debts in a shorter amount of time. When you enroll into a debt relief or debt settlement company, they negotiate down your
debts on your behalf with your creditors, so that way you can settle
your debts for less. Nothing happens overnight, however, in a few short years, or even months, you may be able to have
your debts resolved and paid off for good. Settling your debts may be a better option than filing bankruptcy, depending on where you’re at financially. Everyone’s financial
situation is different, so that would be something
that you would have to talk with a debt expert about to make sure that debt
relief or debt settlement is the right option for you. In a debt relief or
debt settlement program, you typically have one
lower monthly payment that you can afford to pay, and throughout the program, when you resolve your debts, you’re settling your
debts typically for less. Okay, so here are the cons. Debt settlement could
negatively impact your credit, however, if you have a
high debt-to-income ratio, that may already be keeping
you from getting a loan, even if you have a good credit score. You may be charged a fee
if your debts are settled. A debt relief company is not able to charge you an up-front fee. However, if your debts are settled and you’re using their
negotiators and their program, then you may be charged a
fee for settling your debts. Debt settlement and debt relief
companies should not charge you a fee until they have
reached a settlement agreement that you have agreed to. However, they are still a business and you’re using their top negotiators to settle down your debts
with your creditors for less. Although, you can settle your debts on your own without a fee, going with the right debt relief
or debt settlement company that can get you results, may be worth it. If you’re in financial hardship, debt relief or debt settlement
may be a good option for you because you can settle your
debts for less and in less time. Your credit, however,
may take a slight impact, but once you resolve all your debts, you can start rebuilding your
credit again and start fresh. Thank you for watching, feel free to like, comment,

5 Do’s and Dont’s of Dealing with Other’s Mental Illness


We’ll be sharing five tips for helping someone with a mental illness based on an article from issue two of our magazine One of the biggest factors in whether those who are mentally ill will open up to a person about their feelings is How that person reacts. It can be frustrating when someone in our life is ill. And we don’t like seeing our loved ones in pain and often want to help. These five tips should help assure that your loved one and open up more to you. Tip number one: Don’t allow your negative emotions to be visible Like I said, it can be frustrating trying to help someone who’s ill. You might feel anger, pity, sadness or even hopelessness when trying to help. It’s best not to show these emotions Don’t sigh when your loved one responds in a way you don’t like, and don’t talk to them as if they are stupid. Keep in mind, if they could act healthy they would and if you show a negative reaction to your loved ones, they are much more likely to hide their feelings. On to tip two: do show them that you still care This one may seem obvious but often mental illness makes a person feel broken or somehow let down. Therefore your loved ones should be reminded that you care greatly about them without this reinsurance, they may feel as if no one cares. Tip three: and this one is an important one Don’t tell or remind them that it could be worse. This is extremely unhelpful The idea that knowing that some people are worse off will feel better is simply not true. In fact, it might make your loved one feel even worse Firstly, all that matters to your loved one right now is that they feel bad so bringing up others doesn’t really factor into how they feel. Secondly this reminder may cause guilt within your loved one. They may feel guilty for talking about the illness or even worse feel guilty for being ill at all. This means that your loved one is less likely to open up about their illness to you or to anyone else in the future. Tip 4: Don’t try to relate how they feel to your own experiences, that is unless you have the same illness of course. It can be tempting to try and relate how they feel two things you’ve been through but telling someone who has bipolar that you understand because you have mood swings Or your friend with anxiety that you understand because you get anxious before exams isn’t helpful. Mental illness is a more extreme than other behavior in feelings and it can often feel Invalidating to the person to hear these things. Also, doing this tends to focus the conversation back on you when it is the other person who needs support, so it’s best to listen rather than try to offer up your own stories. And finally, tip 5: do try and research their illness The Internet is a wonderful tool that allows you to research whatever illness your loved one has. You can research symptoms, helpful tips, and read others experiences. This all means that you can support your loved one in the best way possible. Something good to research is particular warning signs and how best to deal with them. Knowing for example, that someone’s first sign of anxiety Can be them feeling very hot is good for spotting when a possible anxiety attack is about to rear its head. That’s it for our tips. We hope that you now feel better equipped to help support someone with mental illness Remember it’s always good for someone with mental illness to seek medical attention and help.

Guided meditation for Overthinking and anxiety relief, use for sleep or any time


welcome to this meditation of enlightenment,
positivity and mind mastery. in a moment the music will change, giving
you now an opportunity to make good of any distractions and toplace your body in a
position of comfort. you can relax in any way that you personally
find comfortable, and as you listen, absorb the words with your imagination the best you
can, visualising the scenes depicted in this meditation as images in your mind, playing
out the part to the best of your ability. your personal picture story is unique, connecting
with your indiviuality and personality. place any words you hear into your own life
to fully appreciate the benefits of this audio. now, taking in a nice, slow and deep breath
of acceptance for the new perspectives you will see in your life, accept your readiness
by exhaling even slower, as your journey to mastering your life will begin. laying still, quiet and contemplative, close
your eyes, to help with the visualization aspect of this meditation.
behind your eye lids, in your minds eye, your imagination, feel the sensation of your back
laying flat on a soft surface, smell the sweet scent of flowers all around, and
warm breeze caressing your skin. imagine now, opening your eyes to see that
you are laid beneath a large, tall and strong tree.
at the base of the tree you lay, where the roots dig deep into the earth below, grounding
and nurishing it from the ground up. you lay upon the softest of the greenest grass
you have ever seen, with naturally grown flowers dotted around the tree.
looking up, you can see the sun peering through the branches and leaves of this great wonder,
casting light and shadows on your face. leaves blow around you from the winds of winters
past, brown, delicate, rustling in the gentle summers breeze.
you can see the lines of the bark in the trunk that reaches up high into the sky, brown in
colour and deeply ridged. the occassional flower sprouts out from inside
some of the ridges, some green, some yellow. the branches reach out like arms, welcoming
you to this peaceful place, also thick, strong and long.
the leaves that lightly wave in the gentle breeze send down a relaxing grassy scent,
and are the greenest of greens to be seen. the light from the sun, allows you to see
the intricate patterns on the leaves. as you observe the relaxing wamrth from the
sun, the pleasant whiite noise of nature and the stillness of this peaceful place, you
notice a leaf twirling donwwards from one of the branches.
it slowly floats down in a circular motion towards you, almost in slow motion.
the air between you and the leaf gets shorter, as it hovers down closer to you.
you observe it gently fall onto your chest with the softest of sounds.
seeing it up close, you notice that it seems to be in the shape of an envelope.
you pause, then move your hand to pluck it off your chest.
touching the leaf, you feel its soft texture, being cool and light to the touch.
with your other hand, you begin to unfold and open it up.
as you lift each folded side, you see that there is something inside, white, with some
sort of handwriting. lifting a piece of paper out of the green
leaf envelope, you notice it has the words, be present inscribed in caligraphy.
a moment of curiosity quickly passes as you look away from the hand written letter, taking
notice of the area you lay. you become aware how quiet it is here, hearing
the occassional chirps of far away birds on this summers day.
you realise how relaxed you are, heavily resting on a soft pile of grass and leaves.
now observing a rich blue sky, where no clouds reside, you think to yourself how you missed
it, in the overall picture you saw before you.
noticing the touch of the warm breeze, now feeling a little cooler, taking away the heat
of the sun from your skin. you are now being present.
the note sent down to you from the tree has made you realise that you can in fact appreciate
the present, now noticing the important little things that bring such peace.
laying still, you observe some more, relaxing contently, feeling the sensation of rest in
enjoying what you experience. as you look on, above at the sun through the
branches and the deeply blue sky, you notice another leaf spiralling slowly and gently
down. Again its trajectory seems to be towards you.
watching it slowly circle, descending softly, it reaches your chest, like the last leaf.
once more, as you inspect the post you have recieved, it resembles another envelope.
picking it up, and opening the flaps, you reveal another neatly written message.
in the familiar style of caligraphy you see the words, self love.
stopping to think what this means to you personally, you feel it within.
are there areas of your life where you could be more kind to yourself?
are there things that you want or desire that are semmingly hard to reach?
self love does not only mean steering yourself away from potential detriment to yourself,
but also, to head into something that may perhaps be tough, that has a positive
outcome if you could do it. taking the first steps in order to journey
towards something specific in your life can be difficult but making it through can
be so rewarding. with self love, also comes tough love, doing
the things that build your character in venturing outside your comfort zone.
the real comfort comes in knowing that you at least tried.
pondering over this personal attribute, the hand written message and the leaf blow away,
this is possibly another message in itself. perhaps nature is asking if you are hungry
enough to go after those desires that you hold in your heart.
The warm breeze that blows gently, now settles down, everything is quiet, calm and relaxed
once again. looking back up at the slowly waving branches
of the tree, high above, your attention is taken to another leaf, again slowly
spiralling around, down towards your chest. this time you do not have to guess where it
will land. the expectation is real, it gently flops onto
your chest. ever more curious, you take the leaf envelope,
opening it slowly with anticipaation. the message here reads, positivity.
softly placing the message down, you see perhaps, where you can implement a more positive attitude,
mainly these times are when things are tough,it can sometimes be when you are
worn down. through the belief of positivity, gives strength
and optimism. very much like knowing that there would be
another message coming to you from the tree above, you were optimistic with a knowing
there would be more.
the curiosity of positivity can provide motivation and also help with self esteem, and self love,
as you progress in your journey of being positive and practicing it, brings confidence.
as you look away from the message, before you know it, another leaf falls past your
eyes and onto your chest. slowly and gently opening the leafy envelope,
the message simply reads, believe in yourself. feeling a sense of strength build up inside
your mind and body, a focus of the connection from the other messages now fills you with
a sense of belief of what you need to do, perhaps change about the way you do things.
believing in yourself is a powerful skill to have,with practice, like anything, your
belief will only grow. away with self doubt now, banish any anxieties
that held you back, and forward with the things that you want to do, with confidence.
looking back up into the sky, your mind wanders through any positive transformations that
you could make, the sun shining through the branches warms your face further, relaxing
every muscle. observing the tree in its natural place, you
now see it in a different light, a more noticeable perspective.
again, you see the tree is strong, you knew that before you recieved any messages.
you observe the roots that can be seen around the base of the trunk, you knew it was grounded.
its white noise sound of the many leaves on its branches shows a quietness, from unknown
storms that it has wethered. the storms that it has seen in its lifetime
may have stripped it of its leaves and broken its branches in the past, but it now stands
tall, proud and beautiful in every way. every winter it sheds the years troubles and
when summer arrives, it blossoms back stronger than ever.
perhaps you could apply this idea to yourself, have the confidence to take those baby steps
in changing how you think about yourself in a more positive way.
as you thoughtfully and mindfully lay underneath this life giving tree, you rest more heavily,
more relaxed. it is now your time to think things over,take
a few moments or perhaps a while to yourself. as you lay here, feeling at one with the nature
that you see, you awaken, or simply fall asleep, the choice is completely yours to
take. whichever you choose, you will come away from
here with self love, positivity, and the skill of being present as you believe in yourself.

Kitchen Safety: Preventing Lifting Injuries

Kitchen Safety: Preventing Lifting Injuries


Kitchen Safety:
Preventing Lifting Injuries For a cook, besides your knife, your back is probably the most important tool that you’re gonna have. That one moment where you pick up that 80-pound whatever, and you pull something in your back, that could be the rest of your career. A healthy back is critical for a long career in the kitchen. Follow these steps for lifting any load. Get close to the object, and test the weight. Bend your knees with a neutral back posture,
and get a good grip. The legs have the strongest muscles in the body, so getting good position, and securing the item,
and then lifting it with your legs. Pivot with your feet; don’t twist your back. Lift the object smoothly and slowly,
keeping it close to your body. Empty garbage containers before they
become completely full; this reduces the weight, making the bag
easier to lift and tie without any garbage falling on the floor. You know kitchens are notorious for
having limited space, making sure that things are stored
as appropriately as you can, so you’re putting the heavy things when you’re storing them down low, you’re not putting the heavy things up high. Lifting heavy things that are coming down
over your head — if you don’t know how heavy that thing is, and it comes down on your neck, or your head, it’s not going to be good. Organize the kitchen so heavy items
are stored at waist level. Keep the load between your knees and shoulders. Use dollies or carts whenever possible, and don’t hesitate to get help from others
when lifting a heavy load. You’ve got to take care of your body, because this is how you make your money. Don’t burn out and don’t feel like you need to do everything on your own. Just get help. Don’t be a hero. You’re gonna want your back when you’re 50 years old. An injury today potentially can stay with you for a very long time. It’s going to ensure you have a long
and prosperous career, so making sure that you have a
healthy back is essential. Avoid lifting or carrying items that are slippery,
too hot, or unevenly balanced.
