Tragus and Anti-Tragus Piercings

Tragus piercings and anti-tragus piercings are becoming increasingly popular – in fact, tragus piercings are now one of the most common ear piercings around. Ear piercings are the most familiar form of Body piercings and the tragus and anti-tragus are fresh expressions of the mundane ear lobe piercings.

The tragus is a thick little piece of cartilage that juts out from the ear canal. To get an understanding of the exact location of the tragus, place a finger by the outer corner of your eye. From this point, trace the finger back, in a straight line, until you touch your ear. The first piece of your ear you will feel is your tragus. You should be able to grasp this little nub between your fingers – this is where the piercing will go through.

There are all sorts of misconceptions about the tragus. Some people may try to tell you that piercing your tragus will affect your balance – that is simply not true. Your balance is affected by fluids in your ear drums, which are located deep within your ears, and are far away from any pierce-able surface. The tragus does not have anything to do with your balance, so don’t be fooled by uneducated people who might try and tell you otherwise. In fact, the only purpose a tragus has is to hold your headphones (such as the standard iPod headphones) securely in your ears; and once pierced, there are thousands of headphones to choose from which will not irritate your piercing. Honestly, the tragus has nothing to do with your ear, your hearing, or your balance. It is just a flap of cartilage – perhaps if humans developed sonar and echo-location the tragus would be useful (super developed traguses help bats use sonar, for example) – but alas, on our species, it’s just a surface begging to get pierced!

The tragus is recommended to be pierced with a captive bead ring, but a barbell will suffice. The reason rings are almost always preferred for the initial piercing as opposed to barbells is because rings tend to heal quicker, better, and more securely. Once healed, you can use any type of jewelry, even typical jewelry normally reserved for ear lobes. Your piercer will help you choose which gage is right for you (and by the way, expanding the tragus is not unheard of, but rare), mark the location on your ear, and push the needle right through. Some piercers may put a cork behind the tragus to “catch” the needle, some piercers just use clamps to aid the needle through, and yet others just use their hands. Each piercer is different, so they will pierce according to their style. Clamps are the most common method, and many people report that the actually clamping to secure the skin hurts more than the piercing! The tragus piercing should be painless – there aren’t a lot of nerves there – but some people do feel slight and temporary pain. Because it is so close to the ear, some people even say they hear a little “pop!” sound as the needle pushes through. Should you hear a little noise, it’s nothing to be concerned about. Once the needle is in, the jewelry is slid into place and secured, and you are done! The whole process, from prep to finish, shouldn’t take more than five minutes.

The tragus does take a while to heal – sometimes up to a year to be fully and completely healed. Many people irritate their new piercing by placing their dirty cell phones up to their ear or by sleeping on the ear with the piercing. I suggest NOT doing either of these for at least the first six months. If your piercing does become infected (and it shouldn’t with proper aftercare), soak it in warm salt water, don’t touch it with your hands, and perhaps (using a q-tip) rub some diluted tea tree oil around the piercing. Never use any sort of rubbing alcohol, for this will irritate and scar your piercing. Your piercer will give you a complete rundown of what to expect and how to handle your new piercing though, so pay attention to their advice.

The Anti-Tragus is very similar to the tragus. It is pierced the same way, the aftercare is the same, and the healing time is the same too. To locate your anti-tragus, place a finger on your earlobe (generally where someone’s first ear piercing would be) and with your finger, draw a straight line up. The flap of cartilage you come to before the empty space is your anti-tragus. Your tragus and anti-tragus are located very close to each other, and the anti-tragus is just opposite of the tragus. Just like the other piercing, this piercing does not affect your hearing or balance. The anti-tragus is rarer than the tragus, mostly because many people don’t think they can get this area pierced, but it can be pierced and it does look great when healed. Curved Barbells and captive ring beads are used most frequently in these piercings.

If you are considering an anti-tragus or tragus piercings, be sure to use a licensed professional. Once it is fully healed, the way your ornament or decorate the piercing is completely up to you, and the jewelry possibilities are endless!

Non-Prescription Glasses and Their Benefits

Learn why non prescription glasses are necessary for the eyes in particular and our health in general!

Our eyes are one of the most beneficial sense organs in the body. These delicate organs help us to visualise the beauty in our surroundings. So, why do we need to cover them up with dull spectacles, especially if there is no optical complication involved? The fact is that there are a lot of dust particles and impurities that can go into our eyes, affecting your vision on a permanent basis. Damage to the eye(s) can prevent you from exploring the world further and may even cause other health problems. As a result, it is clear that our eyes need more protection than any other part of our body. For this reason alone, many people employ non-prescription glasses as a safety measure. Nevertheless, one can raise a finger towards the use of such glasses.

It is true that styling has always been the primary reason for people using non-powered eyeglasses. One cannot deny the fact that these types of eyewear can provide a sort of personality enhancement unmatched by any other accessory. Nevertheless, these glasses serve another important purpose. They prevent the minute of impurities that tends to enter your eyes. Even a tiny speck of dust particle on the eyeball can cause immense pain. Moreover, they can be quite difficult to get rid of. As such, non-prescription glasses provide complete covering over the eye, preventing minute particles from going in.

It is fairly common that when a person gets old, it becomes difficult for him/her to read. This acuity-oriented problem is in direct association with the aging muscles in the eye. As a result, those things that are near to us become quite difficult to scrutinize. This can be observed especially in the case of avid readers who have to go through text all the time. Moreover, if you wear reading glasses with prescription all the time, it can be a cause of concern, as you will need to shift focus from one part of the lens to another on a frequent basis. The best way of dealing with it is to use non-prescription glasses that come with a certain degree of power. Such glasses help in magnifying letters and words that may seem minute to the naked eye. This way, one can also rectify problems with bifocal reading.

Many doctors believe that problems with eyesight can affect the level of sugar in blood. As a result, kids are encountering the problem of short sightedness from an early age. This complication prevents them from studying properly in the classrooms. By using contact lenses with a negative power and then covering them up with thin eyeglasses, one can do a world of good for his eyesight. In addition, these glasses have a direct impact on one’s health. Unlike sunglasses, they can be worn for a longer period. Big eyegear makers like Oakley and G&G are offering good discounts on many of their products both, through third party stores and online sale. Some of the best deals and choices in non prescription glasses can be found online.

What’s the Difference Between Mineral Makeup and Regular Makeup?

The latest buzz in the beauty industry would without a doubt be the emergence of mineral make-up. Primarily as a foundation, you can also find mineral makeup in blush and eyeshadow formulations as well.

The main difference between mineral and regular makeup is in the ingredients used to create the product and that most mineral makeup is in powder form. Of course other factors such as how it looks on your skin and the added natural benefits are a reason it is becoming such a hit with beauty shoppers.

While most mineral cosmetics claim to be made with natural or safe ingredients, it is still important to read the ingredient list as some companies may include some chemical compounds. If at all possible, avoid paraben preservatives and choose only 100% certified organic mineral makeup.

Another benefit is that the makeup offers a natural sun protection. While not as high as your SPF 15+’s, it still provides adequate cover if you are just going shopping or out and about during the day.

It doesn’t clog pores which is great news for those with oily or problem skin, and depending how it is applied can also minimize the appearance of fine lines and imperfections.

Women of all ages and skin types (even sensitive) can use mineral makeup although those with dry skin may need to use a moisturizing lotion underneath their foundation.

Because it generally comes in powder form it needs to be applied with a brush, but a damp sponge can also work giving a heavier finish. Blending in a circular motion usually gives the best look.

Another reason that many people are choosing it over regular cosmetics is that it gives a very natural ‘no makeup’ look. It makes you look if you have perfectly flawless skin when that may not really be the case at all!

Tips On How To Care For Leather Bed Frames

It is often a challenge when instructions that come with furniture are not as situation specific and informative as owners would like them to be. Remember that maintenance for leather bed frames differ from caring for a wooden bed frame as well as classic beds. This guide serves to help owners in caring for any kind of real leather furniture may it be a bed frame or a sofa set.

Before starting the cleaning process, make sure you know what kind of leather furniture you have. This can usually be found in the tags that come with your new furniture or in the instruction manual. There are many types of leather used for furniture and not all are the same. To make sure you know exactly what kind of leather you have, it is best to do the search online as there is a process to test the leather to determine the its type.

Leather is very delicate material and extremely sensitive to heat. Make sure you place furniture away from fireplaces and direct sunlight. Neglecting to do so can dry and crack the surface of the leather. When you notice an area that is getting too dry than it normally would be, use petroleum jelly to cover the area and just wipe off the excess amount.

To clean your leather furniture use soap that is not too harsh and has a moisturizing element in them. Use a soft cloth with soap to wipe the surface to remove dirt. Do not put too much soap and do not rinse it with water. Leather absorbs water so it is important not to use water. Just wipe the soap off with a dry cloth and polish it after.

Always use a leather conditioner to maintain the glamour of your furniture. Good leather conditioners can be bought anywhere but make sure that you read what you are buying before purchasing them. For the best results use a leather conditioner that has been tried and tested. Rub the conditioner around and leave it in for some time so the leather can absorb it then buff after with a dry soft cloth.

Avoid spilling liquid on your furniture because leather may absorb it. A quick fix for liquid spills on leather furniture is to use a clean cloth to dab the wet area while being careful not to spread the liquid outwards. Dab inwards starting from the sides and keep dabbing until it is dry. Allow it to air dry.

Now butter, grease or oil stains are not to be panicked about. Just wipe it off with a dry cloth until everything is removed and leave it that way for a few days. In most cases, this will not be visible anymore by this time but if the stain is still obvious, use leather furniture cleaner to repair the area.

Ink stains can be removed by a simple piece of cotton or cotton bud that is soaked in alcohol or vinegar. Rub it over the stained area and that should remove the ink stains. However, if the stain would not come off, use an acetone-free nail polish remover to do the trick. Once done, use a hair dryer on low setting to dry the area.

Printed paraphernalia if left on your furniture can leave print marks. To remove this, use a can of aerosol hair spray on the affected area, spraying ever so slightly then wipe it off with soft cloth immediately.

A few reminders to ensuring you can avoid damaging your furniture are a few basic things that every individual already knows. Use your furniture appropriately. Do not sit on the foot end as it is not intended for this purpose and sitting on it can distort the shape of your furniture. Also, if you are a smoker, it is best to avoid leather furniture as cigarette burns on leather cannot be repaired.

Furniture of any kind such as a wooden bed frame, leather bed frames or classic beds are only a worthy investment if it can last. Buying new furniture due to neglect of the current set is a waste of money. So before purchasing any kind of furniture it is best to be aware on how it is maintained so you know if you can commit to caring for it. Furniture always needs love and care every so often and it is up to you to keep its beauty and durability as good as new.

The Law Of Attraction In Action – The Path of Desperation Vs Letting Go To Achieve Your Life Goals

We’ve all had those times in life where we wanted something so badly, that we could taste it, feel it, or hear it. You know what I’m talking about. It could be the girl of your dreams, the car of your dreams or just that dream job you’ve always wanted. One thing is for sure, we all have been there.

When it comes to wanting things really badly, the word that comes to my head is ‘desperation’.

From my experience, nothing drives a goal further away from you as desperation.

It’s kind of funny though that some schools of thoughts equate being desperate about a goal, or wanting it so badly, is showing the universe or God how serious you are about that goal or objective.

Oh really?

I personally think not. It is my experience that wanting something so badly, or being desperate about it only leads to one making the wrong decisions. You aren’t making decisions from the flow, or from joy or gratitude. No Way! When you are in a state of desperation, you are almost on the verge of feeling hopeless, or giving up completely (in a negative sense).

Here’s my friend’s account of his experiences after leaving university and in desperate need of money and support, and how he overcomes the challenges using the power of letting go:

” I was so desperate for money once, I almost got myself into a money laundering ring. The circumstances were interesting as I look back in retrospect. It’s almost as if some force was driving me to make the wrong decisions through financial desperation. Let me go further into details.

My girlfriend of four years at the time had broken up with me, saying that she needed ‘space’ at first, giving no obvious reason. When I look back, that was meant to protect me from the fact that she had met someone else who suited her material needs at the time. Note that we were both university students at the time.

So one month turned into three months, and then she begun to drop tidbits about the fact that she had started dating again, by hinting to me that I should start seeing other people. I told her no worries, as I’m in the process of seeking employment, so I’ll put that on the back burner.

I was a fairly decent lad at the time, not worrying much about money, and material things. My main concerns were keeping my mind, body and spirit active and positively engaged in beneficial pursuits.

What turned me to the ‘dark side’ was the call I received that fateful day from my then girlfriend who only wanted ‘space’. She called me explaining that she’ll be sending me some pictures of here with a new hairdo. I was like cool, because she knew I liked her haircuts short. So she sent me the pictures via email, and I saw her in this car; it was a really sexy drop top beetle. I thought it was one of her girlfriends, so I was like “you look sexy in that car. Which girlfriend of yours got this beauty from her rich dad” I said jokingly. Then she dropped the bomb on me. She told me “This is the car of a guy I’m currently seeing. He’s owns a successful business and he’s in his thirties”. My jaw dropped.

Keep in mind that we’re both students. Whatever monies I made in my side jobs, I shared with this girl, because I loved her. I was a few months away from graduating, and was actively job hunting.

When she told me those words, I felt as if I was stabbed in the back. What added salt to the injury was that she considered him a ‘good man’ and that I should be happy for her, with her newfound ‘friend’. I was angry, I started shouting over the phone, and then I hung up.

Thus began level one of desperation and depression. I couldn’t sleep for two nights as my blood was boiling. So I came to terms with the fact that she moved on. The only weird thing though is that she wanted to keep in touch with me, which I was totally against. I was OK with it for a few months, then around December, things took another turn for the worst.

I received an innocent text at first stating ” Hi, what are you up to this Christmas holiday?” I was like “nothing, just chilling. What about you?” Boy, did I open a world of emotional hurt for myself by asking that innocent question. She proceeded to tell me how she will be going to her new boyfriend’s parent’s home in the countryside for the Christmas vacation so that he can introduce her to his family.

Note that we were together for four years, while it was only four months she met this guy.”

Enter desperation level two.

Desperation level two is interesting, in that it is wanting fast money, coupled with the desire for revenge and greed.

“So here I was, desperate for cash, and also wanting revenge, to prove that I can get the money also, because, as my ex girlfriend had shown, material wealth was her weakness, and I was on the scarcity end of the wealth scale.

Now I was on a mission to make quick money in as little time possible and to prove to prove to my ex that I could be materially successful also. Terrible combination! Had I accepted the fact that my ego was bruised and I was emotionally scarred, I would have gotten over it quicker. But, apparently, life had other plans for me.”

Letting go of wanting to control the outcome of a situation can be the hardest thing to do, but with persistence, you will be successful.

“I started hanging out with the wrong crowds, engaging in shady financial activity, and considering money laundering. I just wanted to have it all, the money, the cars the women. The promise of huge amounts of money in your bank account for just being a middle man, is very enticing, especially if you are a broke student who has just finished university, and in need of employment to pay your bills.

It was only after my second thwarted shady financial transaction that I realized it just wasn’t meant to be and I should walk away.

I’ve heard stories about divine intervention, but I never experienced such until one day I felt extremely low, having no money, with a wounded ego and heart.

I was crossing the road feeling low, when suddenly the words rang clear in my head: “you are not a loser. You were meant to succeed. All is not lost”. It felt like the scene in Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, where Frodo collapses after the fight with Gollum for the ring, outside Shelob’s lair. Frodo collapses, only to be given a hand up by the lady Galadriel of the Wood Elves, whispering words of encouragement to him.

There was more to it, but I was so inspired, that I took another turn in my life for the better.

I ended all communication with my then ex girlfriend who seemed to be getting some sort of twisted pleasure rubbing in my face all the things that her new boyfriend did for her, which I couldn’t because of the cost involved. In the New Testament of the Bible, Jesus Christ said “Forgive Your enemies 77 x 7” and “turn the other cheek”. I do that, but I take it a step further, I forgive, but instead of forgetting, I remember, I keep a mental note and chuck it to experience.

I started accepting my financial and relationship situations, and let go wanting to control the outcomes of my life with regards to the goals I set to achieve. I began investing in self help courses, such as the Sedona Method, started meditation, and emotional freedom technique (EFT) tapping.

They really helped, and I continue to practice them to this day.

Going back to my story, after I began the process of acceptance and letting go, I started going out and dating again, and had relationships with three other beautiful young women. I must stress that this wouldn’t have been the case had I been desperate for a relationship. It’s funny because, the opposite was true. I was not looking for a relationship at all. I was just out for fun.

With regards to my physical, I began exercising more, and was in a better place of physical health. I received frequent compliments on my physique, and how good I looked. Here again, I demonstrate that I wasn’t looking to be some sexy stud. I was just exercising because it made me feel more alive, and the gym was a perfect escape for me from my dead end job, and my crappy living conditions.

Now with regards to the financial aspects of my life, the situation was a bit ticklish; I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. What I mean is that I found it hard not to want more money when money was exactly the thing needed to pay my rent, transportation costs and buy food. So that was really a dilemma for me. I struggled with it for awhile, then I gave up on it, never quite letting go of my wanting to control my financial future.

Understand that wanting to control, and actually having control are two different things.

I struggled financially for 3 more months until I decided to head back to my parents’ home from the city. My focus was on complete rehabilitation then. But an interesting thing happened: while back home, I received two job offers. Here again, I want to emphasize that I did not want a job at the time. I gave myself six months to regroup myself, and the job offer landed when I didn’t consider getting one.”

Thus ends my friend’s story. I gleaned so much knowledge from that account, and I hope you the reader, gleans some valuable insight.

Hence my point that wanting something desperately, as compared to wanting it, then letting go of that wanting, seems, in my experience, to push the object of your desire further away from you.

What is it that you currently desire desperately, that the thought of letting go will seem irresponsible? Is it a better career? Is it more money to clear your overwhelming debt? Is it a partner you crave to feel less lonely?

Whatever it is, think ahead 5 years into the future. Picture yourself having achieve that goal. Now, imagine that you are that future self. What would you tell your struggling self in this moment? Would you tell yourself to continue being desperate and needy, and anxious about your goal, or desire? Or, would you, as your future self, tell your struggling self to just relax and take life one day at a time, because eventually you will achieve your goal?

The thing about goals is that sometimes we worry too much, or let anxiety or peer pressure get the better of us. The goal might not manifest when we want it to, but it will manifest. One has to be patient first with oneself, then the universe.

Letting go of one’s expectations is the key. This is not to be confused with not taking action. You take the right action, such as set up your dream board, do you daily visualization, say your affirmations, meditate, pray, whatever it takes to keep you in that positive frame of mind. But, you must also let go of the attachment to the expected outcome, because other miracles might manifest on your journey to achieving your goal, which you might not notice since you are so obsessed with that particular goal, and your limited perception of its outcome.

So, take a deep breath, relax, and practice letting go of your expectations so that you will accelerate the manifestation of your goal or vision, or something even better.

There are many courses out there that facilitate in the acceptance and letting go processes. Some of the daily techniques I use are from the Sedona Method and the Silva Life System.
