Therapy tends to be thrown around a little bit in our day and age. Not much seriousness is placed on it, partly because of the famous people that are put in front of our faces every day that come in and out of therapy depending on when it?s in style to do so. However, there are some very real reasons you would use therapy services and they can be extremely beneficial to your mind and life in general.
Having to see a therapist for individual therapy or marriage therapy or for anything at all does not mean that you are crazy or somehow unfit at life. It is responsible and taking your life in your own hands, deciding that change is on the way and you are not ready to give up. Below are some sign
The holiday season is a time to be grateful, joyful, and warm. You and your family probably have big plans for a wonderful meal in your warm home, surrounded by loved ones. During this time of the year, don’t forget to be grateful for all that you have, and to keep in mind what others might not be so lucky to possess.
A common misconception that some people may have about charity is that it costs extra time or money out of your pocket. The simple truth is it doesn’t cost anything to do a good deed. Often, the best charities to donate to involve food and clothing donations. On average, people send over 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills each year in the United States alone. Why throw away perfectly good clothing when there’s probably a Continue Reading
Research states that there is an estimated of 12 million tons of clothing and textile waste thrown out each year in the United States. This clothing can benefit others when it is used for a charitable donation rather than just thrown out. When deciding to donate your items there are a few things that should be considered. Deciding on organizations, which accept clothing donations, is a good start, but the following do’s and don’ts will help you make the best decision concerning charity donations.
Decide which charity your donations will go to. There are a number of charities that will benefit from your donation. Each charity donation is used in a different way. Res
If each American made charitable donations of just $31 to provide clean drinking water to third world countries, no more lives would be lost due to dehydration or water-born pathogens in countries where clean water isn’t available currently. With donations of less than $100 per American to organizations that fought against world hunger, every man, woman, and child in the world would have enough to eat.
While it’s unlikely that these goals will be achieved in our lifetime, if every person found a way to help a cause they care about, some of the greatest needs across the world would be dramatically improved. Here are some things you should think about to make the most of your charitable giving:
- Make sure your money is going to further the cause.
There are a few basic needs that no person should be without: food, water, shelter, and clothing to name a few. Clothing has become such a staple of many of our lives that most of us take the clothes on our back for granted. Each year Americans throw out a combined 12 million tons of clothing and textiles; its sad to think that up to 90% of those items thrown away in 2011 could have been taken by organizations that accept clothing donations.
Who Are Our Neighbors in Need?
Chances are, everyone has experienced a hard time during their lives. We can’t always control the situations that we find ourselves in: this too applies to those unfortunate enough to find themselves without a home. The Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that around 207,000 recent military veterans were unabl
“As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.”
If every one of us lived by the inspiring words of the late British actor, Paul Shane Spear, we really would change the world. The needs in our world are so great, it might feel intimidating trying to find a place that you can make a difference. Here are a few, small ways that any one person can change the world for one person, and eventually change the world.
- Volunteer your time.
The sky is the limit with volunteering your time to change the world. You can find an organization that supports a cause that is meaningful to you, such as helping disabled veterans or stray puppies. Or you can take the initiative to change someone’s world on your own. Visit lonely elderly people at a nursing
Healthy sleep habits are known to be closely linked to our overall health and quality of life, but the CDC has nevertheless declared sleep deprivation to be a public health problem in the United States. There are many factors contributing to this rampant sleep deprivation: too much caffeine, screen time too close to bedtime, too much nicotine, etc. Pain can also be a major issue when it comes to getting shut-eye. According to the National Sleep Foundation, issues like back and neck pain, TMJ, and headaches are some of the biggest issues preventing sleep. Thankfully, there is a solution for relieving your pain at night!
One of the National Sleep Foundation’s top recommendations for staying comfortable is to buy an adjustable bed. These beds are manufactured to help you take the pressure off of
So, after years of semi-looking, you decided to go right ahead and build your dream home. We totally understand the impulse, and so do your fellow Americans. In a recent study, 41% of people would prefer a newly built house to one on the market for a while. What’s more, about half of this group searching for homes for sale would really prefer that their dream home be custom built on their own property. Below are a few things to consider as you embark upon your dream home design:
1. The floor plan. Floor plans for new homes vary widely and are hard to judge becaus
