Having a surgical procedure can be daunting and many people may fear the surgery itself or the period of healing afterward. Some people may be very fearful of the procedure or what the outcome of the surgery will be. Sometimes pain medication is necessary for a period of time after the surgery and oftentimes people may be fearful of taking pain pills.
Yet surgery may be absolutely unavoidable. If this is the case, there are ways to speed up the healing process and adjust your mental attitude to increase the healing of your body.
Meditating after surgery is one way to quiet your mind and concentrate on the healing process. Some individuals may want to focus on the part of the body that had surgery to promote healing and good feelings. Others may want to focus on overall good health and well being. Meditation works to calm the spirit as well.
Former TV Star turned Youtube rapper Andy Milonakis seems to have decided that nail polish is his thing, and he’s going to push it as much as he can. Milokanis, who has remained the same age for the last 20 years, is now pimping LuxeCoat nail polish in a new video just released.
The hilarious video, produced by Entegrate!, the in-house digital production of online advertising powerhouse Engage:BDR, will be distributed to over 100 million people in the next few months during the LuxeCoat launch. This could be one of the first major brand pushes that will be exclusively launched online via advertising and social media.
Engage has taken an innovative social media approach to break into what has become (thanks to pop tarts like Katy Perry and Nikki Minaj) a recently crowded nail art space. Their hope is to attract a wide range of attention by creating distinctive content for each social media platform. Andy is the first of what I’m told will be a host of YouTube stars they plan to partner with.
They’ve created original shareable content for Facebook; gifs and memes for the Tumblr audience, photos and a contest for Instagram and have already gotten Twitter influencers like singer Danni Minogue to tweet about the brand.
Their strategy is to hit all four corners of the world by correctly feeding each channel to engage each particular audience organically.
This is definitely signaling a change in the way companies think of online media versus traditional media, with online starting to come first and foremost.
We spoke briefly with Milonakis, who told us the reason that he was working with LuxeCoat, “"Doing online branding deals can be frowned upon by fans or followers so I’m careful with the type of stuff I do. LUXECOAT was an obvious choice because they let me do my own thing and gave me full creative control to make a funny, hard sounding rap verse about one of the most girly, feminine products on the market…Nail polish.”

This month, the Omni Business Center in Kansas announced that it will expand its virtual office to include open spaces, conference rooms, and the latest communication technology. Omni’s reinvention is common for virtual offices across the country.
The temp office industry has seen increases in usage each year as the U.S. economy, with its manufacturing sector now comprising just 8 percent, continues its transformation into a virtual and service-based marketplace. In the past year, nearly 4 percent of the American workforce became telecommuters.
Buff Farrow, the Omni Center’s general manager, told Biz Journal “I think it’s a good time for us to innovate.” In the 1990s, rental for temp spaces typically included a private office, secretarial support, fax machines and printers, and reliable telephones for sales calls.
How times have changed.
“Virtual employees” enable companies to save money on leasing costs and building expenses. Additionally, there’s a regulatory driver for the growth in temp offices. Obamacare’s full implementation in 2014 is expected to induce millions of small businesses to convert full-time employees into part-time workers and independent contractors. Thus, the Affordable Care Act could create millions of new virtual workers in the next decade.
According to Global Workplace Analytics, more than three million Americans have become telecommuters in the past year. The trend requires changes in how office buildings are set up.
While most telecommuters set up tax-deductible home offices, those that travel regularly – such as consultants and salespeople – require virtual spaces for a few hours each month. Additionally, American workers are preferring the efficiency and convenience associated with telecommuting over other job benefits. Nearly 36 percent of respondents surveyed by the Information Technology Association of America said that they would choose telecommuting over a pay raise at work.

Vacation is a time for rest and relaxation; to forget about the mundane for a while. It can also be a time when people let their healthy eating and exercising habits slip a little or a whole lot. There are some ways you can ensure that you are still getting some good exercise in while you are relaxing. It sounds a little odd, doesn’t it? Relax and get exercise at the same time, hmm…is it really possible to have the best of both worlds? The answer is yes and to find out how, read on.
Take in the sights and sounds with a leisurely stroll around the area. Instead of driving everywhere, walk to places that are fairly close to your vehicle and/or accommodations. After you enjoy a meal, take a stroll around the area where the restaurant is located. Walking is not only fantastic exercise, it also allows you to notice things that you might miss if you were driving. Things tend to whiz by when you are in a vehicle, mostly because you are paying attention to where you are going! If you are one of those people who are constantly on the go at home, it will be good for you to slow down a little and enjoy leisure walking for the simple reason that it is fun and relaxing.
Oh yes, dancing is a great way to burn calories and have fun doing it. You can take classes or just hit a dance club and show off your moves. If the clubs or classes aren’t your scene, then turn on some music and dance in your room before you head out for the day. As an alternative to dancing, you can also try some yoga. Yoga is excellent for the mind, body and spirit. There are simple techniques that you can find online and do almost anywhere.
You do not have to pick the most treacherous mountains or forests in order to get in a good hike. All you need to find is an area with some hilly areas and walk. Be sure you wear appropriate shoes and clothing for the climate and area you will be hiking in. Also be sure you have your phone, a compass/map and water with you while hiking. You do not want to get yourself lost or become dehydrated while out hiking.
Many hotels have swimming pools and some are even heated, so taking a nice swim is possible during the day and the evening. Swimming is both fun and therapeutic for the muscles.
In room workout
You can create your own exercise routine in your room before you start your day of sightseeing and adventure. You can do sit-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks or simply jog in place for a set amount of time. You can touch your toes to stretch your legs and back muscles and bend side to side to stretch your other muscles.
While on vacation, there is nothing wrong with indulging in some high calorie foods as long as you balance it with fresh fruits and some good vegetables. You also want to drink plenty of water, especially when being active. Treat yourself to some decadent foods but it wouldn’t hurt to watch your portions.
It is not impossible to get some real good exercise and maintain your fitness level while on vacation. You do not have to be brutally vigilant with going to a gym or putting yourself through a rigorous workout routine. You are on vacation, have fun with it. Part of the fun of being on vacation is getting to do things you wouldn’t normally do, even if that is a simple walk on the beach.

TIP! Try to de-stress your life as much as possible. Acne has been directly linked to stress.
Wash your face with just water, and stop using synthetic products for a while to see if you look better that way. There are many instances of acne that are actually caused by the use of different cosmetic products. Most cosmetics are made with harsh chemicals which can irritate acne prone skin. Another great way to help reduce the occurrence of acne, would be to decrease meats and dairy from your diet. This may reduce acne outbreaks, because the hormones found in meat and dairy products can negatively affect the skin.
TIP! Always use a fresh pillowcase to help with acne. The reasons for this are clear.
Controlling your stress level can lessen the severity of acne. Stress produces a high level of stress hormones that are unhealthy for your body, and also have adverse effects on your skin. Stress reduction is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your skin and body. Ways to reduce your stress levels could be by exercising, meditating, or even just relaxing for a moment to your favorite tunes. Stress can cause acne flare ups, so make sure to keep your stress levels under control. If you are prone to frequent breakouts, try washing your skin more frequently during the day. You should wash your face as soon as you get out of bed in the morning and before you go to bed at night if you want to cut down on the amount and intensity of your breakouts.
TIP! Zinc is a good supplement to take for acne; it has properties in controlling free radicals from forming under your skin. Cystic acne can be reduced to a few bumps by taking zinc supplements each day.
A great at home trick for getting rid of acne is the use of honey. Mix honey and cinnamon together, then apply the mixture to your face and allow it to dry for five to ten minutes. Once you have rinsed it off, you will notice that your skin is smoother and free of excess oils. Noesporin is an over the counter medication that can help with pimples. Redness and irritation also respond well to the cream’s ingredients. To use this method, simply apply a pea-sized amount of the Neosporin to a Q-Tip and keep it on. You want to be sure that you do not put too much on.
TIP! Chances are good that your acne is related to stress. Take the time out for yourself and just relax.

If you frequent smoky bars, sleep in your makeup, or suffer from chronic dehydration due to alcohol consumption, however, your lifestyle may take its toll on your skin in the form of breakouts. Yes, acne can be difficult to endure, but these tips can help you make a fresh start, get rid of pimples, and have the clear skin you really want.
