How Anxiety Can Be Caused By Holding In Your Emotions

There is nothing wrong with feeling too emotional, but holding back your emotions out of fear of rejection is a bad move. You need a healthy outlet for all your emotions, do not let petty matters beat you down and there is no harm in talking to yourself. Just know that you are not alone.

Feeling emotional is only natural; the intensity of emotion varies however from individual to individual, from sadness to happiness, anger and even feeling low. Emotions are your mind’s natural way of responding to daily life, and expression of your emotions is a healthy practice. Though some people tend to abuse anger and be angry for inappropriate reasons, anger is sometimes a bare necessity. All your emotions are key contributors in your well-being but the urge to cry for no reason is a sign of anxiety.

The leading cause of this kind of anxiety is holding back your emotions, it is only wise not to bottle up and refrain from over thinking. Fear of conflict should not push you into suppressing your emotions for it will lead to anxiety and related negative emotions.

What to do?

Instead of bottling up your real feelings and emotions, which will leave you feeling hopeless and play the role as a key contributor for both depression and anxiety, express your true emotions. Research suggests that people commonly keep from expressing their emotions in order to be liked and be accepted, and be able to get along with people all the time. To be able to get along with everyone and or be cheerful all the time in an unrealistic expectation, and none of your emotions are unacceptable though it is great to be conscious of your reactions this will have you think through your reactions and if they are justified enough to be expressed or not. Though putting yourself down all the time even when your reaction is called for will not only lead you to anxiety but also push you towards a more crumbling role in life.

However, putting others first is a great thing to do but ignoring yourself in the process of pleasing others, putting your needs and feelings last in an attempt to achieve the impossible has its own consequences. Avoiding conflict out of fear of upsetting others is self-defeating, as you will be constantly pushed into believing that you are not allowed to have negative emotions. There are a few natural remedies to soothe your anxiety, but the best way to deal with this problem is to find healthy outlets of expressing your emotions. You will find that sometimes talking to yourself is one of the greatest way to understand your emotions more clearly and hence express them better, but in case you have been holding them back for too long it is not going to be easy, but one step at a time and you are getting there.

Here are 5 simple tips to a healthier, less anxious life:

1. Express yourself, when needed. Do not over express and don’t under express yourself.

2. Laugh it off. You need to look at the brighter side of things, take life sunny side up!

3. Schedule relaxation and sometime to think over clearly on how you should have reacted and how you really feel and if it is justified or not, if not you can relax and look into how you can fix this for yourself. Remember when you are an honest judge of your own feelings, there is no way you cannot express yourself correctly.

4. Try some lavender essential oil.

5. And most importantly, man up to face your fears and the consequences of doing what you believe is right and always be open to finding out if you were truly right or wrong.

Life is uncertain, plan but do not let anxiety hit you if your plans fail. Sometimes things go wrong, but life will always go right. Your high sensitivity to emotions and situations can both be a gift and a curse, with some practice you can make a gift out of it.

There is nothing wrong with feeling too emotional, but holding back your emotions out of fear of rejection is a bad move, the right people will accept you for who you are and all you will need to be is yourself with them. And mind you, everyone is the right people it depends on how you choose to express yourself that matters the most.

You need a healthy outlet for all your emotions, do not let petty matters beat you down and there is no harm in talking to yourself. Just know that you are not alone. Take a deep breath and rest assured it’s totally normal to have emotional reactions but it is not okay to bottle them up.

Hair Loss in Women, Get the Facts Before You Act

In the United States alone, pattern hair loss affects over forty million men. Less well known is that hair loss also occurs in twenty million women. Until recently, few viable options existed for women experiencing this problem. Today, great strides in research and treatment are occurring. In this article we will focus on the latest and greatest treatments as well as future therapies looming just around the corner.

But first, a short discussion to lay the framework for gender-based similarities and differences. In both sexes it’s called “pattern” hair loss because hair inside zone of loss is subject to thinning and fallout. Hair outside the zone is generally considered to be immune. This single fact has driven hair transplant surgery for more than fifty years because hair transplanted into the thinning zone retains its genetic immunity and continues to thrive. But there is an important caveat.

In men, pattern hair loss tends to leave a healthy dense area of hair bearing scalp available for transplantation. In women, this does not always occur. Often, women lose hair across the entire scalp to a degree that renders hair transplant surgery a non-starter because you’d be trading one region of sparse hair for another. Another point of differentiation between the sexes is that women with thinning hair tend to retain their juvenile or feminine hair line while bi-temporal recession is a very common finding in men. Thus, concisely, in men, the area of hair loss tends to be more severe but anatomically limited — while in women the degree of loss may not be as severe but the extent of affected territory may be much more extensive.

In this article, we will not delve into the biochemical hallmarks that differentiate male from female pattern hair loss. Suffice to say, the common biochemical features linked to pattern hair loss generally outweigh the gender-specific differences.

Okay, we’ve set down a reasonable foundation for the problem. Now what is there to be done? Let’s start by touching on the options that honestly just don’t work and then we’ll get into therapies that do. The first thing that doesn’t work is also usually the first thing that women try, i.e. “thickening” the hair. Using thickening sprays, gels, mists etc. on thinning hair is a bit like putting makeup on a corpse. Eventually, the jig is up. In hair loss affected women, eventually the hair thins to a point where no amount of flocking spray will be able to disguise what’s happening. This is because the visible hair above the scalp also happens to be the non-living part of the system. That’s why you don’t scream bloody murder when your stylist takes a scissor to your hair. It’s also why plumping up the hair shaft with thickening shampoos and volumizing hair spray ends up addressing precisely the wrong end of the problem. It is the hair follicle, buried several millimeters below the skin surface, where we need to focus attention.

Another thing that just doesn’t work is scalp massage, and/or variously, products designed to increase blood flow to the scalp. Pattern hair loss is not a function of compromised blood supply. So massaging the scalp or using products purported to “invigorate” the scalp do basically nothing but invigorate a disreputable hair company’s bank account. Next on our list of “things that just don’t work” are hair vitamins. Your hair isn’t starving. You aren’t missing trace elements or vitamin C. Your hair is being shut down by genetic and epigenetic factors that hair vitamins simply can’t fix.

By now, you’re probably saying to yourself, well then, if none of these things works, then I’m basically out of luck, right? Wrong. From a therapeutic standpoint, there has actually never been a time in human history with better options than today. For starters, just as there are male-indicated hair loss treatment drugs that are off limits for women, there are female-indicated hair growth treatment pharmaceuticals that are not appropriate for use by men. The first drug on the list is spironolactone.

Spironolactone (marketed under the trade names Aldactone, Novo-Spiroton, Aldactazide, Spiractin, Spirotone, Verospiron or Berlactone) is a diuretic and is used as an antiandrogen.

It is a synthetic 17-lactone drug that is a renal competitive aldosterone antagonist in a class of pharmaceuticals called potassium-sparing diuretics, used primarily to treat heart failure, ascites in patients with liver disease, low-renin hypertension, hypokalemia, secondary hyperaldosteronism (such as occurs with hepatic cirrhosis), and Conn’s syndrome (primary hyperaldosteronism). Due to its antiandrogen effect, it can also be used to treat hirsutism, and it is a common component in hormone therapy for male-to-female transsexual and transgender people. Interestingly, it is also used for treating hair loss and acne in women, and has been used off label as a topical medication for treatment of male baldness. Spironolactone is commonly used to treat symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) such as excess facial hair and acne. It can also cause gynecomastia in males and should never be given with potassium supplementation for fear of the development of hyperkalemia.

The next female hair loss drug is flutamide. Flutamide is an oral nonsteroidal antiandrogen drug primarily used to treat prostate cancer. It competes with testosterone and its powerful metabolite, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) for binding to androgen receptors in the prostate gland. By doing so, it prevents them from stimulating the prostate cancer cells to grow. Flutamide has been largely replaced as a cancer drug by bicalutamide, due to a better side-effect profile. Flutamide may also be used to treat excess androgen levels in women, and it is here that the drug has also been used to treat female hair loss. It is marketed by Schering-Plough under the brand name Eulexin, also known as Flutamin. Like spironolactone, flutamide has the potential to cause feminizing side effects in men such as gynecomastia, and so this is a hair loss treatment drug that is generally useful only for hair challenged women.

Drugs are great. Thank goodness for drugs. Surely, the greatest achievement of the Twentieth Century was the creation of miracle drugs, such as streptomycin and penicillin. But drugs also come with common but sometimes highly significant negative side effects. Interestingly, it is also a fact that more than 50% of the pharmaceutical drugs in worldwide use today were originally derived from natural substances, either all or in part. For instance one of the earliest TB drugs was extracted from a bacillus found in cranberry bogs. Mother nature has been busy creating biochemically active molecules for many millions of years. Human beings have been at it for a somewhat shorter period of time.

The elegance of natural phytochemicals both staggers and ignites the imagination. And while natural medicine has been in use for thousands of years, it is only recently that evidence-based scientific analysis has been applied to validate these ‘nutraceuticals’ as such substances are sometimes called. A new field is emerging where sophisticated tools of molecular biology and protein chemistry are being harnessed to test, concentrate, and generally improve naturally-derived compounds, all without turning them into synthetic drugs.

In this lab, the focus of our work is directed toward the development of naturally-based hair loss treatment formulations. Here, the goal is to take all we’ve learned and find safe, botanically-based substances that can offer testable benefit in the setting of pattern hair loss.

What’s the Peter Jackson Weight Loss Secret? Introducing the Skull Island Diet

What is the Peter Jackson weight loss secret? The image most of us have of the Lord of the Rings movie maker is a portly, bespectacled figure reminiscent of one of his Hobbit characters.

In a fact, film industry insiders and Jackson fans started noticing a new-look Peter Jackson nearly a year ago. But it’s only now with all the publicity surrounding his soon-to-be released feature King Kong that the public at large have woken up to the slim, spectacle free version of the man and begun wondering about the Peter Jackson diet.

And it’s not difficult to see why there’s so much interest. The Peter Jackson weight loss has been impressive – he’s shed some 70 pounds (32 kilograms).

So what’s his diet secret?

Was it the South Beach Diet? The Cave Man Diet? The Atkins Diet?

Obesitycures.com did some research and discovered that Jackson did not follow any of the popular fad diets. The real secret to the Peter Jackson weight loss phenomenon has been dubbed the “Skull Island Diet,” after the fictional island home of King Kong.

Jackson, bemused by all the attention his new image is receiving, insists a lifestyle change, rather than a diet is responsible for his weight loss.

“I just got tired of being overweight and unfit, so I changed my diet from hamburgers to yoghurt and muesli and it seems to work,” Jackson told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Jackson reportedly followed no specific exercise program either, but has spoken several times of his punishing 21-hour-a-day work schedule on the King Kong set, which no doubt accounted for part of the weight loss.

Jackson said he was cutting during the day and shooting during the night for months on end, surviving on three hours’ sleep. “I thought I was some kind of Superman, but it knackered me.”

And what of Jackson new-found spectacle-free status? No, unfortunately losing weight does not improve your eyesight. Jackson underwent laser eye surgery, explaining that he had grown “tired of being outside with rain and dust on the glasses”.

Beginner’s Guide to Bikram Yoga (Or Hot Yoga) – What to Expect During Your 1st Class

Hot Yoga, formally known as Bikram Yoga, has become increasingly popular in the recent years. It’s a great way to improve your health and can provide a new and exciting way to get fit (or even lose weight) in the fall, as it starts to get cold outside. Being in a room that is heated to 95-100 degrees can be a unique experience to those of us accustomed to working out in an air-conditioned gym.

Preparation for your first Bikram Yoga class might make you excited and anxious, for sure. Will I be able to hold the poses? What if my breathing technique is not correct? What if I get light headed? What if the temperature of the room makes my heart race?

There are some steps you can take in advance to help you overcome this anxiety & set yourself up for success with yoga, regardless of what your fitness goals are. You can make these changes as soon as you decide to try hot yoga & continue following this guide as you become advanced.

1. Get Used to Drinking a Lot of Water Prior to Working Out. Imagine doing your normal workout routine in the sauna room. Now, imagine doing yoga in the sauna room (literally), where you are having to hold a pose and look past the sweat, discomfort, and breathing. If yoga is your thing, you will eventually learn to love this, but if you are a beginner than make sure you don’t add dehydration to the list. Drink plenty of water before you try hot yoga for the first time and you will be rewarded with a fabulous feeling afterwards.

2. Eat a Snack Before Class. Having a piece of wheat toast, a granola or energy bar, a banana, or some other healthy carb before your workout will give your body more energy & keep the water from swooshing around in your stomach as you change poses. Some instructors will tell you not to eat at all, but Fit Girl disagrees. For the sake of your own comfort, a piece of toast is not going to ruin your first yoga experience. Besides, you will burn a LOT more calories in one yoga class than that toast would contain. Keep your light snack under 150 calories. Any more than that and the heat will make you nauseous.

3. Bring a Towel. You will sweat a lot, as you expected. Your body will also burn calories like crazy because it will use energy to cool you down and bring your temperature back to normal. This is where fat burning comes in – if you eat a light breakfast and do hot yoga after that in the morning, chances are you burned most of your calories sleeping and you have a low supply available from your light morning snack. So, as soon as your body burns off that snack, it will go straight for the fat reserves you have been wanting to trim. Voila! If you do yoga at night, than try to eat your carb heavy meal in the morning, eat light for lunch, and have a snack 30 minutes before your hot yoga class.

4. Wear Tight Clothes. Put on a comfortable set of shorts that hug your thighs (not running shorts) and a sports bra or fitted tank top. As you sweat, you want your clothing to absorb it quickly, so you don’t have puddles all around you. You also don’t want to worry about giving anyone a peek at your undergarments and as you take new poses, tighter clothing with the right coverage will allow you to focus on your workout instead of your garments.

5. Share Your Experience. Yoga for beginners can be more enjoyable if you are not trying it alone. Since the popularity of Bikram yoga has grown so much in the recent years, there are many beginners in classes all over the country. Chances are good that you are not the only beginner in your class. After your yoga class ends, you will have shared an amazing hot yoga experience with people whom you never met and if you don’t bring a friend, you might just make one at the class. Be positive and outgoing – yoga is all about encouragement & motivation!

Side Blurb: Is Yoga a sport? Some would argue that yoga is not a “sport” but a lifestyle change, a fitness regimen, or else. We believe it is what you make of it. You decide what role yoga will play in your life. Whether you are using it in place of meditation, or if you are seeking inner body zen and peace of mind, or if you’re simply mixing it up at the gym with a new workout, it is YOUR decision how you approach your experience with yoga.

3 Simple Tips to Strengthening Your Lesbian Relationship Bond

Strengthening a bond in a relationship happens as time goes on, but there are always ways to boost that bond in a faster amount of time. The little things you do together with your partner can deepen your love, trust, and overall relationship. Three little things can greatly change the outlook of your relationship and make both individuals happy.

The biggest thing lesbian couples can do to strengthen their bond is participate in different classes together. Yoga and other meditation type classes can increase the mental bond between lovers. Unlike male/female relationships, women are more than likely going to be interested in taking different classes together to further strengthen their love for each other. Even though you will not communicate during say, a yoga class, you are still working towards something together that can be quite powerful. Meditation allows you to clear your mind and yoga emphasizes that for both women.

Lesbian couples can also try new things together. Going to a new city or eating a new restaurant is excellent for all stages of a relationship. Simply trying something different can open your mind and relieve the stress and pressure of daily life. There are plenty of vacation hot spots to try, and even spas that cater specifically to lesbians. There is never a shortage of adventures that lesbian couples can participate in together. The options are endless, and there are more than enough places that cater to gay couples.

Last, having deep conversations alone can do things for your relationship that you never thought possible. Having alone time to talk about life and your goals can drastically improve the quality of your relationship and help you bond even closer together. Many couples rarely have alone time together to discuss their feelings and everything else in life. This causes frustration and isolation, which can lead to ending of a relationship. Instead, you and your partner can take a few days out of the week to communicate on a deeper than normal level. Conversation is such a huge part of a relationship, and it is crucial to be sure to include deep and sensual conversations in your life.

Strengthening a relationship isn’t the hardest thing to do. It just requires patience and an open mind to explore your needs and desires. When you can communicate that to your wife or girlfriend, both people can be happy and connected in the loving relationship. Bonds can be formed so easily between lovers, but they can be broken easily as well. Be sure to always think of your lovers needs before acting on your own desires and your relationship will soar to new heights.

Some people suggest that raw chow will make the best choice for this kind of weight-loss program because of its higher nutritional value.

As we all know, there are three groups of foods. There are foods that are high in carbohydrates, high in protein, and those with starches. Examples of those that have high protein are eggs, cheese, eggs, meat, and fish. On the other hand, those with high carbohydrates, which are healthy, are fruits and vegetables. Lastly, those with starches are potatoes, pasta, bread, and pasta. Below is a concrete example of this program:

1. For breakfast, you can eat an apple and two bananas to give you the needed energy to last for as much as 24 hours.

2. You can eat a half-roasted chicken without the skin. Roast is better than frying chicken to avoid fattening oils sticking to the chicken.

3. Three baked potatoes will suit your evening appetite. Frying potatoes is not a good choice so it should either be roasted or baked.

Hardgainer frustration!

It could be frustrating to realize that you are a hardgainer, especially if you have spend a long time working out and not showing any results. If you are a hardgainer, following any workout routine may not be effective for you. You need a hardgainer workout routine that is specifically aimed at your precise body type and its requirements.

Hardgainer Warmup!

Before you begin with the real hardgainer workout routine, make sure you warm up your body with some squats and light weighted deadlifts. However, make sure you don’t over-perform the warm up exercise. You should be fresh throughout the exercise routine so you don’t get exhausted or give up too soon this is even more important being a hardgainer. Add a little extra weight every time you begin with the exercise. This is a killer hardgainer workout routine, so make sure you are mentally and physically prepared.

Hardgainer 20 rep Deadlift

Your workout should begin with a 20 rep deadlift. So what are these 20 rep deadlifts and how do you perform them? The recipe of a 20 rep hardgainer deadlift is deceivingly simple. Do not let the apparent simplicity of the program fool you. 20 repetition deadlift will prove to be a very challenging exercise regimen that will ever come your way.

  • A 20 rep deadlift should be performed every time.
  • If 20 reps become too intense for a typical hardgainer, weight can be adjusted according to 12 to 15 reps so that you encouraged completing all 20 reps in a go.
  • Take small breaks and breathe if the routine gets tough for you, but make sure you complete all 20 reps before giving up.
  • Try and increase weight from one training session to another in order to increase your stamina to complete all 20 reps in one go.

Go according to a plan so that you can take up to 20 reps in a go. However, if it gets too exhausting, don’t do it. You may also decide to add two repetitions to your next hardgainer workout routine and continue adding up until you reach 20 reps deadlift exercise in a go. Play safe and resume your deadlift workout at twelve repetitions.

This is a killer hardgainer workout routine, so adjust your sleeping hours from up till 10 hours a day in the beginning to at least 8 hours a day subsequently. Eat food properly and add proteins to your diet. Since this is a killing exercise routine, make sure you sleep enough and take care of yourself so that you boost your growth.

Ever wondered why most exercise routines didn’t help you gain? Various exercise routines result in the over-taxation of the nervous system of a hardgainer. This eventually utilizes all the regenerative powers of a hardgainer’s body and therefore isn’t effective. There is no charm in staying even after spending hours doing vigorous workout routines daily. It is important that you add bulk and muscles just like anybody else. Let your muscles work in a specific routine designed for your body to enjoy more impact and great results.

Last but not the least, visit a chiropractor or doctor to ensure your body is ready for such a workout before you begin.

How Archery Can Help Relieve Stress

Are you consumed with stress? If so, I bet you have tried many different stress relief techniques, but have you tried archery? If not, you should.

Today things have changed; while people still use archery to hunt, many more are using it to challenge themselves and as a fun hobby to enjoy. By opting to try archery, you not only get to improve your shooting, but you get to spend time in a stress-free environment.

If you are ready to give archery a try, start by doing a little bit of research on local organizations and clubs to join.

Treatment Options For Hair Loss Due To Medications

Today, many people take prescription medications for health problems. While these medications for the most part have beneficial effects some of them can cause adverse effects for some. Drug induced hair loss is a very common side effect that occurs from some prescription medications. While hair loss may be unavoidable, there are some things that you can do to lessen the possibility or at the very least the severity.

Hair loss can be caused or made more severe by certain medications, so it is important to educate yourself, and talk to your health care provider if hair loss is a concern for you. Certain medications taken for the treatment of depression, arthritis, high blood pressure and heart problems have been shown to cause hair loss in some people.

Before you begin taking any medication, regardless of its prescription or over-the-counter status, you should make sure that you know everything you can about the medication, its normal effects, its potential side effects, and how it interacts with other medications. It’s important that your doctor knows what medications you regularly take so that possible negative interactions can be avoided. Also, many pharmacies keep track of the prescriptions for an individual and can notify the pharmacist about possible problems between medications, so it’s a good idea to consider using the same pharmacy for all of you medications.

If you are already experiencing hair loss as a side effect of medication, you should know about the options available for treatment. The most important decision you will have to make regarding your hair loss is how much it bothers you and how far will your go because of it. Treatments can be expensive or just simply more trouble than they are worth to you.

There are a number of ways to deal with hair loss due to drug treatment. Some people use wigs or toupees, while others adopt new grooming methods. These approaches are only meant to address the time that you’re actually taking the medication. After you stop the medication, your hair will have a chance to grow back. Compared to the difficulties of surgery, hairpieces and wigs are a much simpler option.

Surgery should really only be considered as an option of last resort, and only if you will be forced to continue the medication for an extended duration. For short term medication courses, an option that is less severe than surgery really should be seriously considered. Regardless of your eventual choice, you should always consult your doctor to ensure that you’re not putting yourself in danger or risk.
