6 Body Movements To Help Relieve Neck And Shoulder Tension

Yes, we know that extra 5 minutes of sleep is something we all crave for, but it is high time that we provide a productive start to our day. And what could be a better way to do this than to involve yourself in a few exercises which aim to release tension from your neck and shoulders.

We all have experienced those days with tight and heavy shoulders and neck that could be an immediate effect against our bad postures. Well, a few simple neck and shoulder pain exercises and stretches at the start of the day could be a wonderful remedy. Let’s find out, how.

1) Upward stretch

Start your day with an upward stretch exercise. It is a far better way to wake up your body and feel fresh throughout the day. It also allows the blood to flow across the body, helping in a smoother blood transmission. Lastly, it straightens the neck and releases the pressure points.

What do you have to do? Put your hands together and bring them above your head with the palms facing upward. Hold this position for some time. Thereafter, stretch your spine and you will be able to feel the ribcage tighten up and relax. You can keep this position for about 10 minutes and then try to include a sideways stretch in order to exercise your torso as well. FULL POST

8 Ways to Bring Your Church Community Closer Together

Regular churchgoers know that attending church should focus more on worship and sharingfaith rather than socializing, but it can lift your spiritual energy when your community is more tightly knit. Church members feel more comfortable attending your congregation when they know they’ll be welcomed and made a part of the larger community.

It improves the worship experience and makes your congregation better able to bring lost sheep into the fold.As an ecclesiastical leader who’s looking to improve fellowship and the camaraderie of your church, you should regard community involvement as one potentially of your most powerful tools.

Use some of the following ideas to bring your congregation closer together.

1. Activate a Mass Notification System

Keeping people on the same page is vital for community awareness. When an event or emergency demands immediate attention, religious organizations once employed the calling tree. Essential news was passed by word of mouth through the grapevine.

But this system wasn’t always accurate, and it didn’t necessarily guarantee that everyone got the message. Now we have technology that makes the challenge of notifying everyone in your parish quick and easy with voice broadcasting or SMS messaging systems. FULL POST

5 Adverse Ways How Dental Fitness Affects Overall Health

dental health

Yes, you read that right! Bad oral health is just not about gingivitis and periodontal diseases, but can also make you trap various other diseases, thus deteriorating your overall health. This is because bacteria causing gum diseases can travel throughout the body and may lead to a range of health problems that you might not even be aware of.

Let’s have a quick look on how dental health is important and can affect your overall health if not taken proper care.

Why Is Oral Health Important?

1) It can hurt your heart

People with gum disease are doubly likely to contract coronary artery disease as against those without periodontitis. This is because injurious bacteria from your mouth enter your blood stream and attach themselves to fatty plaques in the blood vessels of your heart, causing inflammation and increasing your chance of clots, leading to heart attacks.

As these bacteria are foreign to the body, blood vessels feel invaded and attempt to kill them, as in the case of an infection. The resultant inflammation and swelling constricts blood vessels and hinders sufficient blood flow to major organs like brain and heart. FULL POST

Get Used Car Warranty and Breathe Easy

Purchasing a used car warranty is like getting stranded on an alien place, where you do not know which direction to follow. Television commercials, these days are filled with plenty of used car warranty advertisements that generally convince the people to take it and remain stress free from the mounting repair bills. Getting a warranty for your used is no doubt a wise decision; however, the problem that crops out here is that not many people have a great knowledge about its uses and long lasting benefits.

Many individuals just do not give a damn to the calls of the salespersons pitching a used car warranty, considering it to be an unnecessary expense particularly for the second hand car. That's not always the case because if your car breaks down or need some significant repair work, then it can really turn out be a 'blessing in disguise' as it helps in saving tons of money down the road.

When to Consider Used Car Warranty

It is a general question that pops out into the minds of many people. Most of them just go for the warranty, but do not use it all simply because they hardly experienced any problem with their car. However, if your car is notorious or breaks down repeatedly, then my friend believe me, the cost of getting your car repaired may exceed the amount you spend to purchase the car. In such a situation, having a warranty here is nothing less than getting a first prize as you are shielding yourself from piles of financial problems you may have experienced in the absence of a warranty.
