Back Pain Relief #2 - The Locust

This is the 3rd back pain relief which style resembles the locust that's why it's called that name. This is different from the other two exercises - the cobra and the snake.

1. Lie on your stomach, hands by your side, palms up.

2. Raise your head and place the front of your chin only on the floor.

3. Make fists of your hands and place them under your thighs in your groin.

4. Inhale, stiffen the body and push down on your arms. Bring your legs up in the back as high as they will go.

5. Hold this pose for 15 seconds, or as long as you can while holding your breath.

Exhale and lower your legs. Relax and repeat the exercise as often as you wish.

Perform this and the other two exercises on a regular basis once or twice a day and expect a good change in your back strength and a decrease in your back pain. Actually I'm prone to back pain and aside from sharing this tip I'm also a recipient of this one, I'll do this also.

Back Pain Relief #2 - The Snake

The second back pain relief I'll be discussing here is the snake style. This is a little different from the cobra style I mentioned in my previous post.

1. Lie flat on your back with your arms at your sides.

2. Slowly stretch out your arms from your sides, moving them above your head. Stretch your entire body this way while taking in a sow, deep breath as you suck in your stomach. Try to keep you mind calm and clear. Think only of the breath moving in and out of your body.

3. Slowly put your arms back down to your sides as you exhale. Feel your entire body relax. Repeat the exercise as many times as you would like.

That's all there is to it. It's simple, but powerful. Your back will love you for it.

Back Pain Relief #1 - The Cobra

This is part of the three-part relief exercise from back pain:

1. Lie flat on your stomach, hands by your side, feet together
2. Place your hands, palms down, besides your waste. Your fingers should be pointing forward.

3. Inhale as you begin to lift yourself up on your hands, bringing the head back and arching the spine as far as it will go. keep your legs straight. Don't bend your knees - you want to lift yourself up, kind of as if you were doing push-ups with paralyzed legs. Think of the way a cobra lifts its head up and leaves its body and tail on the ground.

4. As you lift yourself up, you don't have to keep going until your arms are straight, but keep your pelvic area pressed firmly to the floor.

5. Exhale. And ower yourself back down gently. Repeat the exercise a number of times. You will feel your tightness diminish with each repetition of the exercise. You should try to hold yourself in the upward position for about 15 seconds.

Will post The Snake and The Locust style of exercise later.

Tips for Smart Shopping#2

More shopping tips here:

1) For your wardrobe it’s easier to buy clothes that you can mix and match, this way you can match your new purchases with your clothes in the wardrobe.

2) Your choice shouldn’t be overruled by price only. You should also think of quality over price. Also if you don’t need the item or if it doesn’t fit you don’t buy it even if it’s 70% off. If you buy the wrong size or wrong color I’m sure you’ll have no use for it and it will just join your unused clothes in your cabinet.

3) Last, you tried to focus on things that you can afford, leave those very expensive things you want but too high for your budget. Try to be smart in spending your money.

My Mom told me that the great rule in shopping is ‘Do not buy what you don’t need and don’t need what you cannot buy’. Sound very practical isn’t it?

Tips for Smart Shopping#1

As it's nearing holiday seasons which is also the shopping season I have here some shopping tips here before you start heading on to clearance stocks sale or any sale you might encounter, be sure to read then before you shop. Just a reminder actually:

1) Start with the excess money you have for shopping, be sure to spend only what you have allotted for the shopping spree.

2) Please don’t buy what you don’t need. Sometimes we were so amazed with the great sale that we tend to buy oversized clothes or things that we don’t have usage for. Remember a good bargain is not just about the price but if you’ve spend lesser cost for the things that you need but can’t afford in the previous days.

3) Make a list of what you really need. It’s always important to have a list of what you own and what you still need for your wardrobe, accessories of house things.

Sometimes I just feel like looking for some best deals on the net especially on gadgets, computers and technical equipment. It just doesn't matter if it's new or used because I'm just browsing for some ideas. Well served my purpose as it has collectibles on sale on their site. Here you can find some auto parts, properties, personal items, electronics, home and personal items, sports and hobbyist items, jobs, services, cars and many others.

Actually I was just looking for a workout equipment or a treadmill for my everyday exercise since I can't find the time to walk. I can settle for a second hand treadmill and I've found these two: A motorized treadmill priced at PhP17k and proteus treadmill exerciser for PhP20k. I still have to consult with hubby!

What Scent Candle SHould You Light?

You Should Light a Citrus Candle

You are optimistic yet restless. You love your life but always are thinking of bigger and better things.
You love being on the move. You have plenty of energy to chase your dreams.

You're the type of person who trusts your gut. You're very independent, and you've made some unusual choices in your life.

You are cheerfully offbeat and a true free spirit. You challenge others to get more out of life.

Well citrus candle seems like a good idea don't you think? It'll surely perk my moods up what a lovely scent! You can try this one out here!
