We all find ourselves there at some point or another. The world can hit you like a ton of bricks, to the point that you have to look to something greater than yourself.

If you’re like many people today, you’re probably spiritual but not religious. With this in mind, you may not know exactly how to process that yearning for something deeper.

To learn more about religion vs spirituality and how looking within can help you with what you are going through, read on.

Respect the Differences Between Religion vs Spirituality

First things first, make sure that you don’t turn religion vs spirituality into a debate.

This launches an ego-filled merry-go-round of debate that ultimately goes nowhere and doesn’t help you with your problems. The truth of the matter is that whether you’re going to church, meditating, getting your early morning run in, reading to understand yourself, or painting, we’re all trying to figure this life thing out and what it all means.

It’s all under the umbrella of embracing the spirit, religion just happens to encapsulate certain sets of spiritual ideas and adds some tenets, formalities, and rituals.

A lot of people who aren’t religious still appreciate spiritual philosophies like Daoism and Zen. A spiritual relationship starts with loving and learning yourself, and the journey begins from there.

Unplug from Technology

You can’t learn more about your true self if you are always drowning in technology.

It’s hard enough to have mental focus with such an influx of technology, let alone any semblance of spiritual grounding. Rather than sharing your attention with social media, e-mails and text messages, turn your devices off and go to the park or sit in a room and contemplate your life.

You need to begin hearing and processing your own thoughts, and this starts by putting the outside world on mute for a bit.

Become a Voracious Reader on Spirituality

Once you’re on a spiritual journey, you’re going to become a voracious reader.

This will help you put some philosophy to things that you already think and feel. It will also stretch the limitations of your mind so you can conceive a higher concept of yourself and your thoughts on spirit.

There are so many different books you can read or listen to in the form of audiobooks. Start feeding your mind so that you can free it and embrace spirituality as a whole.

Plus, you can trust and believe no matter what problems you are going through, someone has written a book about how they dealt with it.

Find a Community of People Also on a Spiritual Path

Even if you fancy yourself more spiritual than religious, there is absolutely nothing wrong with devoting yourself to religion or going to church or any other community.

No two people believe the same thing about God, even if they belong to the same group. So just because you might not have traditional religious views, don’t hesitate to find a church or other community that fits your spiritual needs.

When you start looking up these communities, you can get a breakdown of their philosophy.

For instance, Rev. Ike was a Christian preacher that took a more spiritual, psychological and esoteric approach to the Bible. Other preachers might take a more traditional slant.

A spiritual community might just be a bible study group, support group, runner’s club or just a bunch of friends that you go hiking or camping with. The key is to get around like-minded people that you can build a belief system with.

Start Meditating with Regularity

When you are going through things, it pays to start meditating.

This can be the opening point of really getting to know yourself and to weed out the mental noise that is keeping you from knowing yourself spiritually. By just taking a moment to witness your breath, you will learn the truth of who you are.

A lot of people find and embrace their deep purpose when they build their meditation life. If nothing else, meditation is shown to reduce stress levels, which can help you out with any number of things that you battle with.

Begin Journaling Daily

You also owe it to yourself to write in a journal regularly.

This will help you on your spiritual journey because you are getting the thoughts out of your mind and putting them into your notebook. Journalling gives you daily quiet time and some mental space to deal with any issues.

Get Your Health Together

You must get a handle on your mental, physical and spiritual health.

Continuously shift your focus within so that you develop a high self-concept, which will trickle down to the rest of your health. Embrace yoga and body movement as much as possible so that you are opening your spiritual centers and staying as healthy as possible.

You also need to get your nutrition together so that you are feeding yourself nothing but the best nutrients. This way, your cells will be healthy, your thoughts will be clear and you will have lots of energy.

Free Your Mind and Embrace Your Spirit

As you can see, the journey of religion vs spirituality is one that requires you to do some deep work. This is a process that we all go through in our own way, but it’s a journey worth spending time on.

The Basis Of Remote Car Starter https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/the-basis-of-remote-car-starter/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/the-basis-of-remote-car-starter/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 19:32:42 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263272 It’s winter middle and the snow is falling hard. You’re still standing over your car that’s parked outside, and you’re afraid of getting into it. You think to yourself, “If only before I get into it there was a way to heat up my car.” Well, you’re lucky!

Remote Car Starters do just that!

They allow you to start your car remotely so that before you get in, your heater can start warming it up.

How does a Remote Car Starter work?

Remote start systems consist of two key components: a remote transmitter and a control module / radio receiver. The control module is installed in your vehicle, enabling you to push a button on the remote transmitter to start your vehicle remotely.

In colder climates, they are most common. The remote car starter is used to warm the engine and the car before you can get it. Imagine not having to sit in a car that is freezing cold.

In hotter climates, you can also use the more advanced remote car starters to turn on the air-conditioning. In this case, the car is cooler than the weather outside.

So remote car starters work in both scenarios.

After-market v/s pre-installed car starters?

Many new vehicles today have the option to include a factory remote start system, but their range and capabilities are very limited. A remote starter from a manufacturer usually has a range of about 30 feet, which allows you to be pretty close to your vehicle to begin it.

Remote start systems after the market, on the other hand, deliver not only superior range, but other features as well.

You can install a 2-way remote car starter for your car. This type of remotes will provide you with feedback once a particular action has been performed.

One thing to note with after-market remote starters, you need a professional mechanic to help you install them. Some devices are easier to get in place, but its better for a professional to get the job done for you.

If you are keen to buy an after-market remote car starter, read some of the reviews of the best remote car starters.

Style Tips on how to Combine a Bracelet with a Watch https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/style-tips-on-how-to-combine-a-bracelet-with-a-watch/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/style-tips-on-how-to-combine-a-bracelet-with-a-watch/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 17:25:01 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263264 Men’s fashion jewelry is not only rings, earrings, and necklaces. If you’re looking for a spot-on accessory to spruce up your look, why not try a bracelet? Resting on your hand, it is destined to attract attention.

Types of Men’s Bracelets

The selection of bracelets for men is as unlimited as it is for women. Long gone are the days when guys had to settle for chain bracelets or leather bracelets because nothing else was available. In this day and age, you can find wrist accessories of any shape, size, style, and material.

Chain bracelets

Men’s silver bracelets assembled from a multitude of small links are a timeless classic. We doubt they will ever go out of fashion. This means that your chain bracelet will always stay relevant. You just need to consider two major things: how it matches your appearance and outfit. If you have thin elegant wrists, a massive solid bracelet is a no go. On the contrary, beefy men will benefit from a burly wrist ornament. If you keep in mind that chain bracelets go well with casual and athleisure outfits and accessorize yourself accordingly, you’ll be totally fine.

Bangle

These stiff items, also known as cuff bracelets, are a choice of elegant and sophisticated men. Unlike chain bracelets, bangles are a perfect match for a business suit or tuxedo. Low-key cuff bracelets with minimal ornamentation are suitable for every-day outfits, too.

Bead Bracelet

Being all the rage, bead bracelets are found on the wrists of every other fashionista. This style is a breath of fresh air in comparison with conservative metal bracelets. Bead bracelets will complement every ‘relaxed’ look but they are a poor choice for a business environment and red carpets. Since beads are made of literally any known material (stone, metal, bone, wood, plastic, etc.) you can easily find an item that suits your style and budget.

Leather

One more sought-after bracelet style features cords, ropes, or stripes of genuine or artificial leather. Today, men choose rather minimalistic bracelets made of a few cords woven into a braid. Such bracelets may additionally feature metal charms or decorative details. Wide leather wrist bells will resonate with rockers, punks, and bikers, although street fashion also attempts to roll out similar eye-catching accessories.

How to Style Bracelets with Watches

To begin with, a set of a bracelet and watch constructed in a similar style and complementing each other will look most appealing. If, for example, your bracelet radiates a casual or country style, opt for a watch with a leather or fabric strap. Some manufacturers offer ready-made sets including wrist accessories that mirror the design of each other. However, isn’t it more fun to unearth original combinations by yourself? If you like to experiment with your style, do it wisely.

Choose metals of the same color

There are no strict rules regarding colors matching but it is best to start with metals of the same hue. A silver bracelet and gold watch, or vice versa, just don’t belong together, especially if you’re going to flaunt them on the same hand. Silver looks more restrained than gold meaning it is suitable in a more formal setting. The question is where you are going to wear your bracelet. A classic office suit is not the best backdrop for a silver chain bracelet, let alone a gold one. But if you are on a vacation, it is a totally different story. When chilling out on a beach, you can complement your style with a gold bracelet of literally any style. Gold looks gorgeous with tanned skin.

Do not give up other accessories

Clearly, you don’t want to overload your image with details but who said you should avoid other accessories if you already wear a bracelet and watch? With extra items, you can shift the focus from your hands to elsewhere. For example, put a necklace around your neck and it will become a focal point of your image.

Don’t Overaccessorize

The line between the lack of jewelry and overabundance is very thin. There are no rules on how many accessories you can use so it is totally up to you and your sense of beauty. Normally, two bracelets on the same hand are just right to remain stylish. One more accessory and your look is at risk of turning into sophomoric, immature, or simply tasteless. To keep a balance between your accessories, we don’t recommend putting on more than 5 items simultaneously (but frankly, 3 items will look just fine). A pendant or a ring in addition to a watch and bracelet will strike the right note.

Wear a watch and bracelet on different hands

You have two hands and you need to take care of each. Don’t pile up bracelets on just one wrist depriving the other one of your attention. This is the rule to follow if both your watch and bracelet are too massive to share the space on your wrist with anything else.

Stay Connected! Here Are Some New Technological Breakthroughs You Should Keep an Eye On https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/stay-connected-here-are-some-new-technological-breakthroughs-you-should-keep-an-eye-on/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/stay-connected-here-are-some-new-technological-breakthroughs-you-should-keep-an-eye-on/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 17:07:35 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263240 Looking for news on the latest technologies?

Technology has a knack for advancing at an increasing pace. Faster and stronger technology will come sooner than you think.

This is a good thing for today’s audience. People always look forward to newer products and features for entertainment and convenience. However, it also means you might miss something with all these new technologies taking over the media.

You can also miss different technological breakthroughs because you’re not subscribed to anything relevant to it. You may find the new technology to be far more useful than anything you have right now. Keep yourself updated by checking out this list of the breakthroughs to track.

  1. 3D Printing

3D printing started as a way for workers to make a computer-aided scale model of what they visualized. There are now different and unique uses for 3D printing coming from creative minds. They use 3D printers to map out foldable pieces to make stable furniture or incredible art pieces.

Most of these printers made use of plastic to craft the designs they needed to craft. This made it impossible for 3D printing to be reliable in heavy-duty work. There have been projects dedicated to making a 3D metal printer, though.

Today, it’s a slow and expensive process to 3D print metal sheets. There have been some advances in the area, though. This can make 3D metal printing faster and cheaper in time.

  1. 5G Technology

Internet became accessible to mobile users back in 2001 with the 3G network. The only problem was that it still proved to be slower than the slower connections for desktops. This changed in 2009 with the launch of the 4G network.

Mobile users are increasing in the world. The 4G network allowed them to thrive by giving them the option to conduct business transactions without delay. Life for online businesses changed because of the 4G network.

With the upcoming 5G, expect better connectivity and higher speeds. It should see a nationwide launch for mobile users in early December 2019.

  1. Smart Specs

Speaking of mobile devices, nothing has ever beaten the cell phone. The convenient size makes it perfect for the features it offers. However, there are new devices that can turn the tide of the mobile monopoly.

The most notable of them is the smart glasses. These give you an interface to work with even when you’re busy with your hands. There are different voice triggers to activate certain commands, and you can still use your hands for more control over what you do.

Interface interaction is still an issue today. You should look forward to developments to see if they provide better control.

  1. Artificial Embryos

This is one of the technological breakthroughs that can change the course of our survival as a species. Researchers have produced a method of using stem cells to create an embryo. They injected stem cells into a single embryo cell and produced a living, natural embryo.

Laboratory mice have been the only ones to find success in the experiment as of now. Subscribe to the news to see other breakthroughs with other mammals. This can be the beginning of a slow and steady hike towards safe human trials.

  1. Smart Cities

Smart cities are the dream of people who lived in the past 5 decades before today. Flying cars and robot maids are still far from reality, though. Smart cities are still a good stepping stone to achieving the utopia envisioned for us in the past.

A New York development group called Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs is in active collaboration with Canadian officials to put in place a technological haven with interconnected vehicle systems. There will even be an interconnected system in charge of designs and policies.

This will ensure a streamlined project free of human errors.

  1. Managed IT Services

Group servers are popular today because of the convenience they provide in communication. Some even end up creating their websites dedicated to this. All this is possible because of managed IT benefits.

These services offer a bunch of benefits including cloud migration and file storage. Transferring files and servers will also be easier with their help.

  1. Heightened Security Service

Security services have also changed with the help of technology. Security organizations now use A.I. to solve B and E cases faster than before. This allows them to improve their reputation and increase operational efficiency.

They also use machine-driven analytics to prevent suspicious individuals from entering establishments. These detect the pattern behavior of registered individuals and alert officials of suspicious behavior.

  1. Real-Time Language Translation

The language barrier has always been tough to deal with. People had to hire translators to talk to someone important. Even with their help, the conversation often felt awkward and forced.

People became hopeful when real-time translating earphones got announced. Voice recognition and AI work together to translate languages to any single-language speaker. This will make it possible for you to speak English to a Japanese national without trouble.

These devices are also open to updates. This means you can add more languages to its library if you so wish.

  1. Augmented Reality

Augmented reality brings the virtual world into the real world. This has a lot of applications to bring you. Bringing notable landmarks to your local area is an example of its application.

Everyone can enjoy AR, including businesses. Interior designers can show clients their ideas, for example. Clients can then walk around their potential homes and point out anything they want to change.

Further updates on augmented reality can even help improve healthcare systems. Patient interaction is achievable even when they’re miles apart. This improves diagnoses made by doctors who can now check the conditions firsthand.

Track These Technological Breakthroughs Today

It is easy to lose track of the best the world has to offer with all these advances happening at the same time. Keep checking on these technological breakthroughs to make sure you don’t miss the best of the best!

Online Casinos: Expectations vs Reality https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/online-casinos-expectations-vs-reality/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/online-casinos-expectations-vs-reality/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 17:03:55 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263241 There is only one word we can use to define online casinos. Excellent. They made gambling easier and simpler for all of us and they are better than ever before. Nevertheless, there are some differences and some expectations you may have that are not real. Today we will stay focused on the expectations versus reality in online casinos.

Plenty of games to choose from

Here is an easy fact. Online casinos offer thousands of games and many online establishments will feature games developed by some of the biggest providers in the industry. This is a realistic expectation. It is much easier to add online game than a real game in an online casino. The truth is, there is countless choice when it comes to games in almost any online casino. You can gamble in real money online casinos collected by CasinoHEX.in where you will find various slots, table games, live casino games and much more.

Many of you will expect this to be present in all online casinos, but this is partially true. Some of them offer over 3000 games available. Others have 300 only, so you need to choose an online casino that will meet your game-focused requirements. Ideally, you will have to check out a list of the games available or at least the total number of all the games available. After that you will easily find an online place where you can play games you like.

You can visit the online casino using any device you use

This is partially true. Yes, in most situations you will be able to visit an online casino and play any game you like using any device you won. We are referring to smartphones and tablets. Many of those establishments will support smart devices and the overall functionality is stunning.

But, not all online casinos offer the same level of accessibility. For instance, some casinos will have an app available on the App Store and Google Play like that. This is the safest choice due to the fact the app is specially developed for the casino you want to visit and meets the store requirements. Other online casinos have apps that are available for download as third-party apps only. This means that you will have to download the app from the site of the casino. If you have an Android, it is a simple task. If you have Apple device, you won’t be able to download and use the app. You will have to use a mobile version of the casino that probably has a few drawbacks.

All online casinos have numerous licenses

Here is the fact that is usually true but not all the time. Online casinos must meet specific requirements in order to get licenses to be available for gamblers. The main licenses are obtained from Malta Gambling Authority, HM Government of Gibraltar, UK Gambling Commission, Alderney Gambling Control Commission and government of Curacao. If the online casino where you want to play has one or a few of these licenses you are on the right path. It means that they are tested, checked and approved to offer casino games. That casino is a safe choice.

But, there are some online casinos that don’t have these licenses. They are rare to find and they are usually available as ‘’fishing’’ or spam sites but they may look professional and loaded with games.

Simply keep your eye on the licenses. If you play at a casino that has various permits, you are gambling at a safe place. You will be protected and you can enjoy as much as possible. If an online casino doesn’t have a license, simply avoid that place.

Excellent no deposit bonuses

And now we have the main expectation of them all, bonuses. All online casinos offer various bonuses as soon as you register your account. This is a well-known fact and it cannot be generalized. Those bonuses can be welcome deposit bonuses, no deposit bonuses free spins and also specific daily or weekly bonuses. You are right, all casinos do offer these bonuses, but they are not always as you expect.

The thing is, you do get free spins or no deposit bonus that can be $10 or $20 and as soon as you create the account those bonuses will become available on your account. The catch is a wagering requirement. You may use the bonus and win, but you won’t be able to withdraw the funds until you meet wagering requirements. A wagering requirement I usually 30 times your stake and it applies on all bonuses. Some casinos have 50 or 60 times wagering requirement. You will have to gamble in order to win and withdraw the winnings.

Conclusion

In a few words, yes, online casinos are mostly as you expect. You get great bonuses and an impressive list of games but there are some things to consider. Those things are licenses an online casino has, wagering requirements and the overall safety you will get while gambling. Also, don’t forget to check if online gambling is legal in your country.

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ is Still Going Strong https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/its-always-sunny-in-philadelphia-is-still-going-strong/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/its-always-sunny-in-philadelphia-is-still-going-strong/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 17:01:43 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=261926 There are a few shows that always get love for their long runs. The obvious one is The Simpsons, of course. That makes sense, given that the denizens of Springfield have been on our TVs for 30 years. By the way, this season of The Simpsons has been good so far. Given that they are approaching 700 episodes that’s kind of incredible. There’s a show that has also had kind of an incredible run that is still active, and it too is having a strong year late in its life. I’m talking about FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

At the time I started watching Always Sunny I was a “late” arriver in my mind. That is to say I started watching it during the third season. Well, I started watching it while the third season was airing. The show was on Hulu, back when it was free to watch with ads, and that’s where I began watching it. I was hooked pretty fast. The story of Always Sunny is one of triumph and determination. Rob McElhinney, Charlie Day, and Glenn Howerton made their pilot for incredibly cheap. This got them a chance to get on FX. The first season was so low rated the network asked them to add somebody with a name to the cast. In came Danny DeVito to play Frank, the father of Howerton’s Dennis and Kaitlin Olson’s Dee.

Apparently DeVito was the magic touch. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is currently in the middle of its 14th season. That sounds like a lot, but let’s put that into perspective. Always Sunny is now tied with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet for most seasons for a live-action sitcom. Not that the Gang are at all like Ozzie and Harriet. The shorthand way to describe Always Sunny is “Raunchy Seinfeld.” The main character are all awful. They treat each other, and everybody else, like garbage. They are vain, dumb, and selfish. They are also often hilarious.

Always Sunny is a great show, but it has been hit or miss. This goes back to the beginning, to be honest. That’s the nature of a show that revels in raunch, and also likes to tackle topical issues. Sometimes they swing and miss. In recent years, there have been more misses. Even in this, the 14th season, there have been a couple iffy episodes. However, the reason I decided to write this is because, as of this writing, the last two episodes have been really strong.

Resultado de imagen para its always sunny in philadelphia 2019

Admittedly, the show has short seasons. They’ve had 14 seasons, but only 151 episodes. Your typical 22-episode network sitcom would notch that out in seven seasons, and plenty of shows have gone seven seasons. However, the crew on this show have been at it for 14 years. They’ve had to stay in these characters and tackle new subjects. Some misses are understandable. When they can do something fresh and funny, though, it’s enjoyable and also remarkable.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia came so close to dying out early. Instead, it’s setting records and still going strong. It won’t be The Simpsons. It will probably end in the next couple years. There have been some close calls already. For now, though, they are still being gross and awful, and it’s still a true delight.

  3. Double-check your ticket

Let’s start by looking at how you can win big by selecting the right games.

  1. Pick the Right Games

Oftentimes, you’ll hear people talk about playing the lottery as if it’s one stand-alone game. In reality, there are many different types of lottery games you can choose from.

Follow these steps to pick the right lottery game:

  • Choose state games

  • Play at odd times

  • Know the odds

Picking the right game is at the top of our list of tips for playing the lottery. The main thing to check is that you’re picking state games instead of national ones.

State Versus National Game

Every state has a unique selection of lottery games for you to choose from. To increase your odds of winning, select a state lottery game rather than a national one. The odds of winning are higher for state lotteries than they are for national lotteries with a larger entry pool.

Play at Odd Times

After selecting the state lottery game you want to play, you’ll need to decide when to play it. We suggest that you avoid playing any lotteries that currently have a large jackpot.

Playing lottery games during odd times means there will be fewer players to compete with for your winnings. The chances of you getting the same numbers as someone else and having to share will go down.

Know the Odds

Finally, if you’re playing a scratch-off game, look for the section of the ticket that lists the odds. Every scratch-off game has to legally list the odds for the players to read.

The scratch-off might say something like “overall chances of winning” or ‘statement of approximate odds”. Take a few minutes to read and understand the odds and then compare them to other scratch-offs available.

  1. Buy More Tickets

After you know what game you’ll play, you’re ready to start buying your tickets. We suggest that you stick to one game and buy multiple tickets. The more lottery tickets you buy, the better your odds will be.

Be careful with this piece of advice. While it’s true that more tickets will increase your odds of winning, they don’t guarantee that you’ll win for sure. You should only play the lottery with disposable income. Don’t buy lottery tickets with money you need for something else.

Buying as many lottery tickets as you can afford is a fast way to go broke. Instead, choose less popular state games and buy as many tickets of that one game as you comfortably can.

Lottery Poole

A great way to boost your odds with more tickets without breaking the bank is to join a lottery pool. Offices, clubs, and other social groups will commonly join their money together to buy multiple lottery tickets. If one of the tickets wins, everybody gets a piece of the pie.

  1. Double Check Your Ticket

Finally, one of the best tips for playing the lottery is to always double-check your lottery ticket. Even if you’re certain that you lost, make it a habit to double-check every number.

Lottery players can also check their numbers online if they aren’t able to watch the drawing live. Online, you can see page after page of winning numbers, searchable by date and state.

Remember Your Tickets

If you buy lottery tickets regularly, have one place that you keep them in for safe storage. Write down a note on your calendar or set an alarm in your phone to remind you when the drawing is.

Check the Dates

As you compare your ticket’s numbers to the ones in the drawing, double-check the date. It’s a common mistake among lottery players to think they’ve lost when in reality they were checking a ticket that’s already expired.

Have Fun Gambling

Now you know the three best tips for playing the lottery, but even though your odds of winning are up, you’ll still be at the mercy of lady luck.

To have the most fun gambling, you have to remind yourself that it’s not like an ordinary game. While there are things you can do to influence the outcome, gambling’s more about math and probability than it is about skill. Even if you learn everything there is to know about winning the lottery, you could still easily walk away without winning a penny.

Make sure that the focus of your gambling is to have fun and enjoy the experience. If you’re not having fun, it’s probably time to try something else.

Living with Anxiety: 4 Easy Ways to Keep Your Anxiety Under Control https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/living-with-anxiety-4-easy-ways-to-keep-your-anxiety-under-control/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/living-with-anxiety-4-easy-ways-to-keep-your-anxiety-under-control/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 16:53:22 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263227 Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness affecting people in the United States.

40 million adults in the U.S. are living with anxiety, totaling 18% of the population.

Anxiety can have a slew of adverse side effects. Those affected are more likely to get sick and visit the doctor or have a hospital stay for psychiatric disorders.

And although the illness is considered highly treatable, nearly 37% of those afflicted don’t get treatment.

If you’re suffering from anxiety, it’s time to get yourself the help you deserve. You ought to live a life that is full, happy, and stress-free.

We offer some accessible ways to keep your anxiety under control while you seek out the treatment you need.

  1. Get Healthy

Often, an unhealthy lifestyle can contribute to feelings of anxiety.

Try to get healthy in every way possible—limit your caffeine and alcohol intake, improve your diet, get proper rest consistently, reach out to friends and family, quit smoking.

Place a priority on your physical and emotional health, and your mental health will start to follow suit.

If you’re having trouble with any of these, CBD oils can promote appetite, restful sleep, and decrease social anxiety.

  1. Meditate Regularly 

Our breath is our life-force, and it deserves our attention.

Meditation has a plethora of positive benefits for those with and without anxiety. Meditation can:

  • Reduce negative, worrying, and racing thoughts

  • Allow you to take notice, pay attention

  • Bring feelings of focus, calm, and balance

  • Increase positive self-statements

If meditation is tricky for you, there are plenty of guided apps or classes that can help you dabble in and improve your practice.

Additionally, yoga classes tend to focus on this breathing technique, as well. Which brings us to our next tactic for controlling anxiety. . .

  1. Exercise

We’ve all heard it before, but it’s worth noting again—regular exercise can have enormous benefits on our mental and physical health.

It’s a natural, effective technique that’s been proven to help those who suffer from anxiety, stress, or depression. In fact, studies have shown it’s just as effective at managing depression as anti-depressants—minus any adverse side effects.

It will also help you sleep better, which contributes to positive health.

  1. Know and Manage Your Triggers

Everything on this list is intended to be a long-term tactic to living with anxiety, and knowing and managing your triggers is no different.

If you spend more time ignoring your triggers or burying them beneath a mountain of junk food, junk TV, and lack of exercise, the root of your anxiety is still there. Although it may be hard at times, reflecting on what triggers your anxiety is a worthwhile effort.

Some triggers are easily identifiable, which allows you to avoid them or be proactive about making them less complicated and stress-inducing.

If You’re Living with Anxiety, Be Proactive

Anxiety is hard to control but not impossible.

With the right mindset and effort, you can make living with anxiety manageable. Using these tips and getting treatment can mean a world of difference. You must be diligent in these efforts to be the most effective.

Time to get your life back!

How to Save Money On Wedding Flowers: 5 Methods for the Future Bride and Groom https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/how-to-save-money-on-wedding-flowers-5-methods-for-the-future-bride-and-groom/ https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/17/how-to-save-money-on-wedding-flowers-5-methods-for-the-future-bride-and-groom/#respond Sun, 17 Nov 2019 16:49:41 +0000 https://ventsmagazine.com/?p=263221 The ring is on her finger, the date is set. The two of you are about to set out on a crazy adventure for the rest of your lives.

The average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is a whopping $33,931. From the dress to the venue to the photographer, everything adds up.

As a prudent couple, you don’t want to start married life in debt so you’re looking to trim the fat where you can. Keep reading this article to learn how to save money on wedding flowers.

Choose Your Florist Well

You should choose not only a talented florist but also a practical one. Florists, especially one local to your area, know the best secrets when it comes to buying wedding flowers on a budget. Choose a florist who will be happy to put that information to good use when helping you choose your flowers.

But how do you know who is a good florist in your area? An FTD florist is an excellent choice. They vet local florists for you so you don’t have to.

Buy Flowers in Season

Flowers that are in season locally will be far less expensive because they are easier for your florist to get ahold of. Talk to your florist about what will be in season for your special day.

Also, avoid having your wedding near holidays that are peak times for florists. For example, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. Wedding flowers on those days may come at a premium because they’re so busy.

Go for the Doppelgangers

While many flowers are gorgeous and unique, some flowers look similar to one another. Their similarity in look, however, doesn’t necessarily translate to price.

Dozens of roses would be lovely but are out of your budget. However, dozens of peonies gracing the tables at your reception will lend a similar look, without a similar price tag.

For memory’s sake, consider adding roses to your bouquet since those are the flowers the photographer will be photographing. Ask your florist about other look-alikes for the flowers that you adore.

Go for Three Types Max

Buying in bulk will lower the cost per bloom. If you choose six different types of flowers for your arrangements, your florist will be ordering less of each type and may not qualify for the bulk discounts.

Sticking to one type of flower will usually be the most cost-effective, albeit a little repetitive. If you’re having a large wedding with lots of floral centerpieces, you can probably order up to three types and still qualify for wholesale discounts.

Incorporate Lots of Green

There are many types of accent greenery that florists use in arranging. Many of them are quite beautiful in their own right.

Greenery also tends to be less expensive than the blooms themselves. The more green you use in the wedding flower arrangements the less green you’ll spend on them.

It’s Simple To Learn How to Save Money on Wedding Flowers

It probably wasn’t as difficult as you might have thought to learn how to save money on wedding flowers. These few solid tips, particularly getting the right florist in your corner, will make this part of your wedding planning a breeze.
